Chlamydia pneumoniae and Mycoplasma pneumoniae
in young children from China with community-acquired pneumonia.
Molecular approaches to diagnosis of pulmonary disease due to Mycoplasma pneumoniae
Since the early 2000s, macrolide-resistant Mycoplasma pneumoniae
isolates have been identified in Japan.
Toxic epidermal necrolysis associated with Mycoplasma pneumoniae
SPLUNC1 has been shown to be a key role in promoting host innate immunity against Mycoplasma pneumoniae
(Mp), and previous studies have verified in mouse.
2) Other bacterial causes of CAP include Moraxella catarrhalis, Staphylococcus aureus (typically occurring after influenza infection, and increasingly involving methicillin-resistant S aureus [MRSA]), and Group A streptococci, as well as the "atypical" bacterial pathogens: Chlamydophila pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae
, and Legionella species.
1] Although a number of different viral, bacterial, fungal and protozoan organisms can cause atypical pneumonia, the three most common are Chlamydia pneumoniae, Legionella pneumophila, and Mycoplasma pneumoniae
They treated an 8-year-old girl diagnosed as having Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) in combination with a mycoplasma pneumoniae
infection using intravenous methylprednisolone (5 mg/kg/day) and erythromycin (30 mg/kg/day).
Although its pathogenetic mechanisms are far from being completely understood, EM is thought to be a hypersensitivity reaction to drugs (sulfonamides, anticonvulsants, antibiotics, antituberculous agents, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), infections (herpes simplex virus 1 & 2, Mycoplasma pneumoniae
, and various fungi) and vaccines (2).
The titer of Mycoplasma pneumoniae
IgM antibodies was positive.
EM can be triggered by multiple causes: Ninety percent of cases are infectious, with herpes simplex virus infection the most common, followed by mycoplasma pneumoniae
The agreement will benefit Labsystems Diagnostics and Oxford Biosystems leverage their respective leadership and long term experience in respiratory infectious diseases like Chlamydia pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae
and Bordetella pertussis.
