“Nosocomial infections with meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) lead to increased health and economic costs. The purpose of this study was to determine costs for nosocomial MRSA pneumonia compared with meticillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA) pneumonia. A case-control study was conducted with patients who acquired nosocomial pneumonia with either MRSA or MSSA between January 2005 and December 2007. Patients were matched for age, severity of underlying disease, stay on intensive care units and non-intensive care units, admission and discharge within the same year, and in-hospital stay at least as long as that of cases before MRSA pneumonia. Our analysis includes 82 patients (41 cases, 41 controls). The overall costs for patients with www.selleckchem.com/products/VX-680(MK-0457).html nosocomial
MRSA pneumonia were significantly higher than for patients with MSSA pneumonia ((sic)60,684 vs (sic)38,731; P = 0.01). The attributable costs for MRSA pneumonia per patient were (sic)17,282 (P < 0.001). The financial loss was higher for patients with MRSA pneumonia than for patients with MSSA pneumonia ((sic)11,704 vs (sic)2,662; P = 0.002). More cases died than controls while in the hospital (13 vs 1 death, P < 0.001). Hospital personnel should be aware of the attributable costs of MRSA pneumonia, and should implement control measures to prevent MRSA transmission. (C) 2010 The Hospital Infection Society.

“Objective. To explore the role of Down syndrome cellular adhesion molecule (DSCAM) in the course of the rat marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) differentiated to neurons in vitro. Methods. MSCs from Sprague-Dawley rats were induced into
neurons by baicalin. Immunocytochemistry, Western blot and other methods were performed to detect DSCAM in neurons. At the same time, RNA interfere technique Proteasomal inhibitor was performed to observe the induction and differentiation after DSCAM-siRNA was transfected into MSCs. Results Before induction, the expression of DSCAM was not detectable in MSCs. After 24h pre-induction, DSCAM was slightly expressed in MSCs (1.71% +/- 0.67%). After 6h induction by baicalin, the expression of DSCAM increased (15.79% +/- 4.24%) and reached the peak (53.16% +/- 5.94%) after 3d induction. After 6d induction, DSCAM expression obviously decreased (28.99% +/- 6.72%). After DSCAM-siRNA was transfected into MSCs, DSCAM expression obviously decreased. However, MSCs did not express neuron-specific beta-III-tubulin, expression of beta-III-tubulin was (1.40% +/- 0.79% ) after 6h induction, (41.59% +/- 3.17%) after 3d induction and (59.
