Fatal infection caused by a multiply resistant type 3 pneumococcus

, : Fatal infection caused by a multiply resistant type 3 pneumococcus. Journal of Clinical Microbiology 26(8): 1590-1591

The most virulent pneumococcal serotype (type 3) has not to date been associated with multiple antimicrobial resistance. We report an unusual gastrointestinal presentation of fatal septicemia caused by a multiply resistant type 3 pneumococcus in a setting of increasing prevalence of multiple resistance, including resistance to erythromycin, clindamycin, and tetracycline.

Effects of Ba on the potassium-related currents were studied on the bullfrog atrial muscle under voltage clamp with double sucrose-gap techniques. Ba, in a dose over 0.1 mM, abolished the anomalous rectification of the membrane by inhibiting the b...
