King, who earned critical acclaim most recently for her work in American Crime, talks to Gerry Strauss about her body of work (which stretches back to the sitcom 227) and her chemistry with talented artists such as director John Singleton and actor Cuba Gooding, Jr. "That's a very common thing in the industry," says King. "People who have a good working relationship and grow together, continuously work together." Narducci, who recently co-starred with Robert DeNiro in HBO's The Wizard of Lies, tells Tracey Smith the story of her initial meetings with the iconic actor during the casting of A Bronx Tale. Narducci claims she didn't have the jitters until after she got the part. "I showed up at work the first day and he goes, 'You know, you need to know you beat twenty-five hundred girls." I wasn't nervous until that point!" Jobrani, a member of the Axis of Evil comedy tour who currently stars on the CBS sitcom Superior Donuts, talks about how he survived grade school as an immigrant: skill at kickball, bribing classmates with candy, and being funny. "I like laughing and making people laugh…and I stuck with it." The Work In Progress issue also features a historical overview of immigration in New Jersey, entitled Who We Are/Where We Came From by Mark Stewart and Close to Home, a roundup of go-to authentic ethnic cuisine spots in central New Jersey, by Andy Clurfeld.

Dr. Adam Lipson, of IGEA Brain and Spine, is the first neurosurgeon in New Jersey to implant the Nuvectra™ Algovita® Spinal Cord Stimulation System using novel surgical lead technology. The Algovita SCS System has been FDA approved as a treatment option for people with chronic intractable pain. It offers versatile options for pain management and the smallest, most discrete patient controller on the market. “I found the lead very easy to implant, a definite advantage of having a surgeon-based design. Algovita has clear benefits to patient outcomes with options for high density programming and variable frequency stimulation,” says Dr. Lipson. “I have found this neurostimulation system to be a game changer for my patients. I am excited for Nuvectra to advance the field of neuromodulation a step further for patients with chronic pain syndromes.” Chronic pain affects over 100 million Americans according to the Institute of Medicine, more than diabetes, cancer, and heart disease combined. Chronic pain is difficult to treat, but one potential treatment option is spinal cord stimulation, or SCS. SCS works by masking or interrupting pain signals as they travel up the spinal cord to the brain. A small, rechargeable battery is implanted under the patient’s skin and connected to thin wires, called leads, which stimulate the nerves sending pain signals. The stimulation “overrides” the pain signals, and instead of feeling pain, patients may feel a tingling sensation known as paresthesia. The Algovita SCS System is a new offering to the SCS market, featuring 24 current sources and the broadest overall set of parametric ranges offered for traditional SCS. This combination provides flexible pain coverage and expanded programming options for individualized patient therapy. Algovita also offers the industry’s only stretchable leads, for improved body movement compliance and reduced surgical lead volume to help minimize risk of adverse events. The Algovita system was designed to be patient friendly and easy to use. The wireless Pocket Programmer fits discreetly in a hand, purse, or pocket and allows a patient to conveniently adjust their therapy on the go. For more information about Nuvectra and the Algovita Spinal Cord Stimulation system, visit http://www.nuvectramed.com. About Dr. Adam Lipson Dr. Adam Lipson is a board certified neurosurgeon specializing in brain tumors, pituitary tumors, and minimally invasive techniques for spinal surgery. He graduated from Harvard Medical School with honors in 2000 then continued his training with the neurosurgical residencies at the University of Washington and Penn State Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, PA. He is on staff at the Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ; Morristown Hospital in Morristown, NJ; Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Elizabeth, NJ; St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, NJ; and St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ. About Nuvectra Corporation NuvectraTM is a neurostimulation company committed to helping physicians improve the lives of people with chronic neurological conditions. The Algovita® Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) System is our first commercial offering and is CE marked and FDA approved for the treatment of chronic pain of the trunk and/or limbs.

Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacter species are emerging nosocomial pathogens. As with most multidrug-resistant Gram-negative pathogens, the polymyxins are often the only therapeutic option. In this study involving clinical isolates of E. cloacae and E. aerogenes, susceptibility testing methods with polymyxin B were analyzed. All isolates underwent testing by the broth microdilution (in duplicate) and agar dilution (in duplicate) methods, and select isolates were examined by the Etest method. Selected isolates were also examined for heteroresistance by population analysis profiling. Using a susceptibility breakpoint of<2 -g/ml, categorical agreement by all four dilution tests (two broth microdilution and two agar dilution) was achieved in only 76/114 (67%) of E. cloacae isolates (65 susceptible, 11 resistant). Thirty-eight (33%) had either conflicting or uninterpretable results (multiple skip wells, i.e., wells that exhibit no growth although growth does occur at higher concentrations). Of the 11 consistently resistant isolates, five had susceptible MICs as determined by Etest. Heteroresistant subpopulations were detected in eight of eight isolates tested, with greater percentages in isolates with uninterpretable MICs. For E. aerogenes, categorical agreement between the four dilution tests was obtained in 48/56 (86%), with conflicting and/or uninterpretable results in 8/56 (14%). For polymyxin susceptibility testing of Enterobacter species, close attention must be paid to the presence of multiple skip wells, leading to uninterpretable results. Susceptibility also should not be assumed based on the results of a single test. Until the clinical relevance of skip wells is defined, interpretation of polymyxin susceptibility tests for Enterobacter species should be undertaken with extreme caution. © 2013, American Society for Microbiology.
