Serological Response to Measles Revaccination in a Small Population After a Mass Measles Revaccination Program

Background: In spite of vaccination, outbreaks of measles occur in many countries, and
measles remains the most frequent cause of death among vaccine preventable diseases.
Objectives: To compare anti-measles antibody titer between revaccinated and non-revaccinated
medical students 2 years after the National MR (Measles, Rubella) Vaccination

The Value of Renal Scintigraphy With DMSA for Assessing Vesicoureteral Reflux in Children With Suspected Urinary Tract Infection

Background: Renal scintigraphy with technetium 99m labeled dimercaptosuccinic acid
(99mTc-DMSA) is a traditional imaging technique commonly used to detect renal scar in
patients with probable vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) and/or urinary tract infection (UTIs).
We determined whether normal results of DMSA renal scan obviate the need for voiding
cystourethrography (VCUG) in evaluating children with UTIs.

Background: Group B Streptococcus (GBS) (Streptococcus agalactiae) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality of newborn infants
considered a leading factor causing septicemia after birth. The standard method for the diagnosis of GBS colonization is culture in a

Comparison of BACTEC 9120 and Conventional Blood Culture Systems for Isolation of Microorganisms from Blood and Other Sterile Body Fluids

Bloodstream infectious diseases are prevalent in children and adults. Rapid
and accurate diagnosis of bloodstream infections primary based on conventional culture
results, which saves time and prevents empiric treatment. The aim of this study was to
compare the results of BACTEC 9120 and conventional culture systems, on blood specimens
