Article
Background: Tumors of the metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients that are wildtype (WT) for KRAS or NRAS mutations respond more favorably to anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) treatments. Treatment guidelines now recommend that all mCRC patients have WT KRAS and NRAS tumor status confirmed prior to initiating anti-EGFR therapy. Evi...
Article
523 Background: A systematic literature review and meta-analysis was conducted to summarize the prevalence of KRAS, NRAS, and BRAF mutations in mCRC patients. These mutations have substantial implications for treatment decisions among mCRC patients. Methods: Multiple databases were searched to identify observational studies and clinical trials (sta...
Article
Objective: To use a quantitative approach to evaluate the literature for quantity, quality, and consistency of studies of maternal and infant characteristics in association with breastfeeding initiation and continuation, and to conduct a meta-analysis to produce summary relative risks (RRs) for selected factors. Study design: A systematic review us...

Background Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is an established cause of serious lower respiratory disease in infants, elderly and high-risk populations. The OUTSMART surveillance program aims to characterize patient populations and currently circulating RSV strains, and monitor temporal and geographic evolution of RSV F and G proteins in the U.S....

Background Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is an established cause of serious lower respiratory tract disease in infants and young children. To better describe currently circulating strains, monitor their evolution and characterize the patient populations, the Methods OUTSMART included 14 labs in 4 US regions and Puerto Rico that provided RSV-po...
Article
Purpose: Recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (RVVC), multiple episodes of vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC; vaginal yeast infection) within a 12-month period, adversely affects quality of life, mental health, and sexual activity. Diagnosis is not straightforward, as VVC is defined by the combination of often nonspecific vaginal symptoms and the presen...

Unlabelled: This paper describes a high-throughput method that relies upon a microplate reader to score coaggregation 60 min postmixing, and use of a high-speed real-time imaging technology to describe the rate of coaggregation over time. The results of visual, microplate, and FlowCam(™) aggregation scores for oral bacteria Streptococcus gordonii,...
Conference Paper
Background: Group B Streptococcus (GBS), a leadingcause of neonatal mortality and morbidity in the United States, is increasingly resistant to the erythromycin and clindamycin therapies recommended for β-lactam sensitive patients. Phenotypic resistance can be constitutive or inducible, which is determined using a double disc diffusion assay. Method...
