    Hemodialysis (HD) patients are particularly predisposed to infections. It seems that the HD procedure per se as well as disturbances in both innate and adaptive immunity significantly contribute to this susceptibility. ...
  • Molecular diagnostic tools in mycobacteriology 

    Neonakis, I. K.; Gitti, Z.; Krambovitis, E.; Spandidos, D. A. (2008)
    Although the diagnosis of mycobacteriosis and susceptibility testing are still primarily based on conventional methods (staining, culture, biochemical analysis, proportional method), a series of molecular assays are ...
