    ..The advantage of these combinations is to reduce the concentration of each agent and their relative impact in organoleptic properties. ..

    ..Virological monitoring is still feasible for DBS after 3 months of storage at 37 degrees C when VL is >5000 copies/mL, but DNA contributes largely to the final results. ..

    ..The presence of antibiotic-resistant isolates in gorillas may be better explained by other mechanisms for resistance acquisition, such as horizontal gene exchange among bacteria or naturally acquired resistance. ..

    ..We documented high rates of decreased susceptibilities and resistance to erythromycin and tetracycline (57% and 43% of the isolates, respectively), as well as reduced susceptibility to penicillin in 21% of the isolates. ..

    ..Overexpression of the HadAB, HadBC, or HadABC heterocomplex also produced high-level resistance. These results show that the FAS-II dehydratases are involved in ISO resistance. ..

    ..The SLOMYCO Sensititre(®) panel method could provide a potential alternative to the reference agar dilution method, when DST in M. marinum is required, except for doxycycline. ..
