Graduation of clinical relevance: •—anecdotal reports; ••—human infection is rare and/or restricted to patients at risk; •••—well-established, frequently encountered pathogen.

aPrimer sequences for in vitro studies have been constructed but not applied to clinical specimens.

hUreaplasma parvum has been described only recently (2002), so that a considerable clinical relevance cannot be ruled out. Source: Ref. [22].

disease because of M. pneumoniae or M. hominis infections following surgery may warrant the application of these techniques. Pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) is regarded as gold standard in molecular typing. The disadvantages of PFGE are that the method is time-consuming and cost-intensive. More convenient alternatives, which have been applied to M. pneumoniae, include random amplification of polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis.[20] In addition, serological typing has been applied to this pathogen. Arbitrarily primed (AP-) PCR has been used to investigate the transmission of M. hominis and U. urealyticum.[21]

Getting Started With Dumbbells

Getting Started With Dumbbells

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
