Welcome to the SUNY Open Access Repository

The SUNY Open Access Repository (SOAR) is a centrally managed online digital repository that stores, indexes, and makes available scholarly and creative works of SUNY faculty, students, and staff across SUNY campuses. SOAR serves as an open access platform for those SUNY campuses that do not have their own open access repository environments. 

Access to SUNY campus communities in SOAR are available below under SUNY sectors and also listed alphabetically under the Campus Communities in SOAR on the navigation bar on the left.

  • Lymphogranuloma venereum in a pregnant woman.

    Heaton, S; Hammerschlag, M R; Roblin, P M; Di Pasquale, R C (1988-07)
    Lymphogranuloma venereum was diagnosed postpartum in a young black woman, who was a drug abuser. Chlamydia trachomatis was isolated from aspirate of a left inguinal mass, and the patient was also seropositive for human immunodeficiency virus. During hospitalization she was treated with ampicillin, gentamicin, and doxycycline. Her twin infant girls had no evidence of C. trachomatis infection. The mother was discharged from the hospital after partial resolution of the left inguinal mass and was lost to follow-up.
  • Comparison of enzyme immunoassay and culture for diagnosis of chlamydial conjunctivitis and respiratory infections in infants.

    Hammerschlag, M R; Roblin, P M; Cummings, C; Williams, T H; Worku, M; Howard, L V (1987-12)
    The efficacy of Chlamydiazyme (Abbott Laboratories, North Chicago, Ill.) in detecting neonatal conjunctival and respiratory infections caused by Chlamydia trachomatis was determined by comparison of this enzyme immunoassay (EIA) with the method of isolation of chlamydiae in tissue culture. The sensitivity and specificity of Chlamydiazyme for detecting C. trachomatis in conjunctival specimens from infants with conjunctivitis were 98 and 94%, respectively. For nasopharyngeal infection in infants with conjunctivitis, the sensitivity and specificity were 87 and 92%, respectively. There were nine nasopharyngeal specimens that were Chlamydiazyme positive and culture negative. All of these specimens demonstrated the presence of typical fluorescing chlamydial elementary bodies when pellets of the original specimens were examined with a fluorescein-conjugated monoclonal antibody. When the EIA was performed on nasopharyngeal specimens from infants with suspected chlamydial pneumonia, 6 culture-positive and 10 culture-negative specimens were correctly identified.
  • Colonization of sexually abused children with genital mycoplasmas.

    Hammerschlag, M R; Doraiswamy, B; Cox, P; Cummings, M; McCormack, W M (1987-01)
    Although sexually abused children are usually evaluated only for the presence of infections with Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Treponema pallidum, they are also at risk for acquiring other sexually transmitted organisms prevalent in the adult population. Accordingly, we examined pharyngeal, anorectal and genital specimens from 50 children who had been sexually abused and from 40 healthy children who served as controls; these specimens were cultured for Mycoplasma hominis and Ureaplasma urealyticum. M. hominis was isolated from the anorectal and vaginal cultures of 11 (23%) and 16 (34%), respectively, of 47 abused girls as compared with three (8%) and six (17%), respectively, of 36 controls. U. urealyticum was isolated from the anorectal and vaginal cultures of nine (19%) and 14 (30%), respectively, of the abused girls as compared with one (3%) and three (8%), respectively, of 36 controls. Colonization with genital mycoplasmas was not associated with any symptoms.
  • Clinical efficacy and safety of cefmenoxime in children.

    Tansino, G F; Hammerschlag, M R; Congeni, B L; Cox, P A; Doraiswamy, B; duBouchet, L (1985-10)
    Cefmenoxime, an investigational semisynthetic cephalosporin, was evaluated in 18 pediatric patients with a variety of infections. There were seven patients with urinary tract infections, two with wound infections, two with osteomyelitis, two with abscess infections, one with cervical adenitis, one with hidradenitis, one with pneumonia and sepsis, one with periorbital cellulitis, and one with ventriculitis. A total of 16 (88%) patients had a satisfactory clinical response demonstrated by improvement in clinical signs and symptoms. A total of 12 (67%) patients demonstrated eradication of their infecting organisms. Of the pathogens isolated in these patients, 16 isolates were susceptible to cefmenoxime. One patient developed a generalized urticarial rash that resolved within 24 h after cessation of cefmenoxime therapy. Mean peak level in serum after intravenous infusion was 55 micrograms/ml.
  • In vitro activity of a group of broad-spectrum cephalosporins and other beta-lactam antibiotics against Chlamydia trachomatis.

    Hammerschlag, M R; Gleyzer, A (1983-03)
    The activities of seven broad spectrum cephalosporins, four other beta-lactam antibiotics, and one monobactam against Chlamydia trachomatis were measured in a cell culture system. The minimal inhibitory concentration of four of the seven cephalosporins was greater than or equal to 128 micrograms/ml; those of the other three were from 16 to 32 micrograms/ml. Of the other agents, only mecillinam had activity against C. trachomatis comparable to that reported for ampicillin (minimal inhibitory concentration, less than or equal to 0.5 micrograms/ml).
