Research News for December 2000
The CDC has reported that 24% of strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae--the leading bacterial cause of pneumonia, middle ear infections and meningitis--now appear to be resistant to penicillin. In addition, the CDC found that penicillin resistant infections were more common in children under 5 years of age (32%) compared with those older than five years of age (21%). Those infections resistant to penicillin also were more likely to be resistant to a number of different antibiotics.
According to study published in the December 27, 2000 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association the accuracy of blood glucose tests is related to when the sample is taken. Blood sugar levels vary throughout the day, and have been shown in other studies to be generally higher in the morning, thus tests done in the afternoon may miss a diagnosis of diabetes.
