Of the numerous samples is most often used to modify the Quick test to determine Pytel antitoxic function of the liver. This test is relatively simple, and the results to a certain extent the antitoxic function of the liver, and indirectly - overall health.
Etiologic diagnosis of essential importance for the understanding of the clinical picture of the disease, and for rational therapy, involves a detailed microbiological examination.
We will not be here to present techniques of bacteriological research, focus only on the diagnostic value of it. Among the studies plays a major role blood cultures. Read more [...]
