Abstract
An investigation of strains of Proteus morganii isolated from patients in Odense, Denmark, and of 21 serotype strains revealed a close correlation between the fermentation of trehalose and a non-transmissible resistance to tetracycline. The trehalose fermenting, tetracycline resistant strains had a longer flagellar wavelength than the non-fermenting, sensitive strains. Resistance to chloramphenicol occurred only in strains of the former group.

Abstract
An epidemic spread of Acinetobacter calcoaceticus var. anitratus in two neurosurgical wards is described retrospectively and prospectively using electronic data processing. Isolation of the species from sputum preceded the isolation from CSF by 1/2-1 year. Control measures directed against spread by air and indirect contact controlled the epidemic. Reexamination of 20 selected strains from the epidemic revealed two distinct resistance patterns.

Abstract
Fifty-nine patients were operated or punctured in 60 incidents of brain abscess from 1963-1989, twice as many in men as in women. The number of cases tripled in 1980 to an incidence of 3.6 per million inhabitants per year, supposedly due to the advent of computerized tomography. Simultaneously, the aetiology changed from staphylococci and Gram negative rods to dominance of streptococci and Haemophilus aphrophilus. Apart from temporal abscesses, there was no correlation between localisation in the brain and the bacterial species isolated. Ninety-five per cent of the specimens from untreated patients gave growth, but so did specimens from six of 18 patients treated with relevant antibiotics up to 11 days before puncture. Therefore, we recommend removal of pus by excision or puncture.

Abstract
The aim was to create and maintain a registration of all medical graduates from Odense University from the first graduates in 1972 and to describe the graduates' background and subsequent professional employment. All graduates from 1972 to 1998 are included. About 55% of the graduates came from secondary schools in the country og Funen, 20% from southern Jutland and 15% from Copenhagen and Jutland north of Vejle. About 45% became general practitioners after 5-22 years (median 11 years), a third of them in the county of Funen. Twenty-five percent became consultants after 11-17 years (median 14 years), twenty-five percent of these in the county of Funen. The cumulated death rate was 5% for the ages 30-55 years. At 17 years after graduation 83% had become specialists, at ten years the number was 55%. In conclusion, Odense University recruits 75% of its medical students from southern Denmark. Of the graduates that become general practitioners, about two-thirds are employed in southern Denmark, for consultants the corresponding figure is 50%.

Abstract
The seasonal problem of respiratory infections in children caused by respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is worldwide. A number of these infections are known to occur by nosocomial acquisition. In order to reduce the risk, measures, such as cohort nursing and handwashing, have been used in the paediatric department of Odense University Hospital for three years. In a retrospective evaluation of this routine practice the incidence of nosocomial RSV infections was recorded. The overall rate of nosocomial infection was low, but was proportionally highest in the unit for children aged under 6 months; no change in incidence was seen over the three-year period. In the infectious disease unit, where the majority of RSV infected children were admitted, the rate of nosocomial infection decreased despite an unchanged routine. This difference cannot be explained simply on the basis of longer hospital admission of the children under 6 months of age, but might relate to acquired immunity in children of all ages in the infectious diseases unit or better facilities for segregation within that unit.

Abstract
In November-December 1977 an epidemic of bacteraemia due to P. cepacia was observed in Odense, Denmark (nine patients), and in Nijmegen, Holland (seven patients). All patients recovered. The epidemic was traced to intrinsic contamination of two batches of the anaesthetic fentanyl. All isolates from the patients and from the two batches belonged to the same biotype, had identical sensitivity patterns, and identical antigens. The P. cepacia strain differed from stock strains in being able to grow in two passages in methyl-p-hydroxi-benzoate, 0.5 mg/ml, which promoted the growth of the microorganism: inocula of 2-20 cfu were sufficient to initiate growth in the drug or preservative. These facts indicate the inadvisability of using p-hydroxi-benzoates as preservatives in vials. The strain was inhibited at temperatures above 38.5 degrees C, corresponding to the recovery of the patients after a period with fever above 39 degrees C. Fourteen out of 15 patients examined had agglutinin titres greater than or equal to 320, while 36 blood donors had titres less than 40. Of 12 patients with postoperative fever in the same period whose blood cultures did not yield P. cepacia, three had titres greater than 320.

Abstract
From Nov. 15 to Dec. 17, 1977, Pseudomonas cepacia was isolated from the blood of 16 patients in Odense, Denmark, and Nijmegen, Holland, 2--5 days after an operation with general anaesthesia. The fever started 14--70 h after operation and lasted 2--4 days. All patients recovered. 14/15 patients examined 7--51 days later had agglutinating antibody titres of 400-3,200 against the epidemic strain. Ps. cepacia with identical biochemical characters and sensitivity pattern was isolated from unbroken vials containing the anaesthetic fentanyl, which had been given to all 16 patients. Two batches were contaminated, one heavily so (10(4)--10(5) cfu/0.1 ml). Seven other batches examined yielded no growth. The preservative added to the vials was a mixture of methyl- and propyl-p-hydroxybenzoates which not only allowed growth of the Ps. cepacia strain but could also serve as a carbon source as did citric and malonic acids. The concentration of preservative was not reduced in contaminated vials. The vials had not been sterilized after closure; too much reliance had been placed on an aseptic technique and insufficient preservatives.
