Neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies : their clinical associations and an improved method for their detection.
The test for antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) was introduced into the author's laboratory in 1987. An improved indirect immunofluorescent method was developed, using a system which allows 16 instead of one serum ...
Microbiology and molecular epidemiology of multiresistant haemophilus influenza type B in Durban, South Africa.
Microbiological and molecular epidemiological studies were conducted on 36 multi-resistant Haemophilus influenzae strains, isolated from paediatric patients, over a 26 month period (April 1986 to May 1988). The majority ...
