When the distribution of confirmed cases by test method was considered over a longer period, which encompassed the introduction of routine serologic testing by the Respiratory and Systemic Infection Laboratory in January 2002, it was clear that the introduction of serologic testing had the greatest overall effect on testing for and ascertainment of pertussis in England and Wales, and the discrepancy between notified and laboratory-confirmed cases was correspondingly reduced (Figure 2).
It is unclear on what evidence the association of acute splenitis with systemic infection was originally based.
Because of the potential for exacerbating the resistance problem, systemic antibiotic therapy is reserved for patients with active systemic infections. Patients are usually treated with a 10 to 14-day course of IV vancomycin hydrochloride, after which the vancomycin levels are monitored to ensure therapeutic levels.

At 1 dpi, both intranasally inoculated chickens sampled were infected, as evidenced by low virus titers in oropharyngeal swabs; however, only 1 chicken had systemic infection with moderate titers of virus in tissues (Table).
algerae has previously been associated with a superficial corneal lesion, but not with systemic infection. The patient probably got infected as a result of crushing an infected mosquito while it was feeding, "thereby mechanically inoculating the spores into the skin-bite wound," the investigators said.
