Abstract
The retrieval of bacteria from the lungs postmortem was examined in a population of alcoholics who had a medico-legal autopsy performed. The results were compared with non-alcoholic controls. Pneumococci were found more frequently in alcoholics, but in general there were no major differences. Proteus mirabilis was detected in three out of five alcoholics with unascertainable cause of death. It is speculated whether this species may cause septicaemia in some alcoholics due to abnormal splanchnicus circulation.

Abstract
Danish isolates of Shewanella algae constituted by whole-cell protein profiling a very homogeneous group, and no clear distinction was seen between strains from the marine environment and strains of clinical origin. Although variation between all strains was observed by ribotyping and random amplified polymorphic DNA analysis, no clonal relationship between infective strains was found. From several patients, clonally identical strains of S. algae were reisolated up to 8 months after the primary isolation, indicating that the same strain may be able to maintain the infection.

Abstract
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the usefulness of medical audit of GPs' antibiotic prescription habits. DESIGN: Medical audit according to the APO method. Registration of antibiotic prescriptions for respiratory tract infections during a 3 year period. Intervention with courses, visits to the laboratory, and distribution of recommendations concerning diagnosis and treatment of respiratory infections. SETTING: 24 Danish GPs in cooperation with Audit Project Odense (APO) and Department of Clinical Microbiology, Odense University Hospital. 207 GPs acted as controls. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Changes in the number of antibiotic prescriptions and in the penicillin/broad-spectrum antibiotic ratio. RESULTS: The proportion of antibiotic prescriptions was reduced during the investigation period, but a similar reduction was found in the control groups. Only for acute sinusitis was a lasting decrease not found in the control groups recorded. The penicillin/broad-spectrum antibiotic ratio increased in the intervention group (1.33 in 1992, 1.94 in 1993 and 2.70 in 1995). This increase was significantly higher than in the control groups. The change was seen for acute sinusitis, bronchitis, and pneumonia, but not for acute otitis media or acute tonsillitis. The changes induced from 1992 to 1993 were maintained or increased from 1993 to 1995 although the educational measures had stopped. CONCLUSION: Medical audit according to the APO method is a useful tool for inducing and maintaining desirable changes in GPs' prescription habits.

We examined long-term musculoskeletal and cardiac adaptations elicited by recreational football (FG, n=9) and running (RG, n=10) in untrained premenopausal women in comparison with a control group (CG, n=9). Training was performed for 16 months ( approximately 2 weekly 1-h sessions). For FG, right and left ventricular end-diastolic diameters were increased by 24% and 5% (P

Abstract
Pasteurella aerogenes is rarely isolated from human specimens. The species is found in the digestive tract of pigs. From 1976 to 1994 7 strains were cultured in Denmark from wounds or ulcers. Five patients were bitten by pigs and 2 patients with ulcers were employed in pig farming. A mixture of bacterial species was often found. All 7 strains of P. aerogenes were susceptible to ampicillin, cephalosporins and ciprofloxacin. Ability to hydrolyse urea, to produce oxidase and catalase, to decarboxylate ornithine and to produce gas from glucose and inability to produce indole was characteristic for P. aerogenes. Most bite wounds were located on the lower lateral part of the thigh. Foul smelling pus and abscess formation was the rule. Incision, drainage and antibiotic treatment were usually necessary.

Abstract
The purpose of the investigation was 1) to determine the prevalence of C. trachomatis among young men and women enrolled in military service, 2) to compare enzyme-immunoassay (EIA) of a urethral swab with a sample of first voided morning urine, 3) to determine frequency of earlier venereal diseases (VD) and actual symptoms of urethritis and cervicitis. EIA positive specimens were confirmed by immunofluorescent microscopy. The investigation comprised 831 men and 80 women (17-26 years). The prevalence was 5.7% (95% confidence limits 4.2-7.4%) and 15% (8-25%) for men and women, respectively (p

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.

Abstract
Resistance of uropathogenic bacteria to antibiotics is an increasing problem in primary health care. The aim of this study was to evaluate antibacterial susceptibility testing of uropathogenic when performed in general practice. Urine specimens with a known quantity of typically uropathogenic bacteria were sent to 25 general practices. The predictive values of testing a bacterial strain as susceptible ranged from 0.89 (nitrofurantoin) to 1.00 (sulphamethizole), and the predictive value of testing a bacterial strain as resistant ranged from 0.55 (trimethoprim) to 0.90 (nitrofurantoin). If susceptibility testing is to be widely implemented in general practice it would be necessary to improve the validity.
