Afipia felis induces uptake by macrophages directly into a nonendocytic compartment. (1/7)

Afipia felis is a Gram-negative bacterium that causes some cases of human Cat Scratch Disease. A. felis can survive and multiply in several mammalian cell types, including macrophages, but the precise intracellular compartmentalization of A. felis-containing phagosomes is unknown. Here, we demonstrate that, in murine macrophages, most A. felis-containing phagosomes exclude lysosomal tracer loaded into macrophage lysosomes before, as well as endocytic tracer loaded after, establishment of an infection. Established Afipia-containing phagosomes possess neither early endosomal marker proteins [early endosome antigen 1 (EEA1), Rab5, transferrin receptor, trytophane aspartate containing coat protein (TACO)] nor late endosomal or lysosomal proteins [cathepsin D, beta-glucuronidase, vacuolar proton-pumping ATPase, rab7, mannose-6-phosphate receptor, vesicle-associated membrane protein 8, lysosome-associated membrane proteins LAMP-1 and LAMP-2]. Those bacteria that will be found in a nonendosomal compartment enter the macrophage via an EEA1-negative compartment, which remains negative for LAMP-1. The smaller subpopulation of afipiae whose phagosomes will be part of the endocytic system enters into an EEA1-positive compartment, which also subsequently acquires LAMP-1. Killing of Afipia or opsonization with immune antibodies leads to a strong increase in the percentage of A. felis-containing phagosomes that interact with the endocytic system. We conclude that most phagosomes containing A. felis are disconnected from the endosome-lysosome continuum, that their unusual compartmentalization is decided at uptake, and that this compartmentalization requires bacterial viability.  (+info)

tfdA-like genes in 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid-degrading bacteria belonging to the Bradyrhizobium-Agromonas-Nitrobacter-Afipia cluster in alpha-Proteobacteria. (2/7)

The 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetate (2,4-D)/alpha-ketoglutarate dioxygenase gene (tfdA) homolog designated tfdAalpha was cloned and characterized from 2,4-D-degrading bacterial strain RD5-C2. This Japanese upland soil isolate belongs to the Bradyrhizobium-Agromonas-Nitrobacter-Afipia cluster in the alpha subdivision of the class Proteobacteria on the basis of its 16S ribosomal DNA sequence. Sequence analysis showed 56 to 60% identity of tfdAalpha to representative tfdA genes. A MalE-TfdAalpha fusion protein expressed in Escherichia coli exhibited about 10 times greater activity for phenoxyacetate than 2,4-D in an alpha-ketoglutarate- and Fe(II)-dependent reaction. The deduced amino acid sequence of TfdAalpha revealed a conserved His-X-Asp-X(146)-His-X(14)-Arg motif characteristic of the active site of group II alpha-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenases. The tfdAalpha genes were also detected in 2,4-D-degrading alpha-Proteobacteria previously isolated from pristine environments in Hawaii and in Saskatchewan, Canada (Y. Kamagata, R. R. Fulthorpe, K. Tamura, H. Takami, L. J. Forney, and J. M. Tiedje, Appl. Environ. Microbiol. 63:2266-2272, 1997). These findings indicate that the tfdA genes in beta- and gamma-Proteobacteria and the tfdAalpha genes in alpha-Proteobacteria arose by divergent evolution from a common ancestor.  (+info)

Description of Afipia birgiae sp. nov. and Afipia massiliensis sp. nov. and recognition of Afipia felis genospecies A. (3/7)

On the basis of phenotypic characterization and DNA relatedness, two novel species are proposed, Afipia birgiae sp. nov. (type strain 34632T = CIP 106344T = CCUG 43108T) and Afipia massiliensis sp. nov. (type strain 34633T = CIP 107022T = CCUG 45153T). A new genospecies is described, named Afipia felis genospecies A, closely related to Afipia felis. The complexity encountered in the taxonomy of the Bradyrhizobiaceae group within the alpha-2 subgroup of the Proteobacteria is discussed and the description of these novel species highlights the need for new tools for phylogenetic analysis in the group. The novel species herein described are fastidious bacteria isolated from a hospital water supply in co-culture with amoebae. It is hypothesized that this group of bacteria are a potential cause of nosocomial infections.  (+info)

Usefulness of rpoB gene sequencing for identification of Afipia and Bosea species, including a strategy for choosing discriminative partial sequences. (4/7)

Bacteria belonging to the genera Afipia and Bosea are amoeba-resisting bacteria that have been recently reported to colonize hospital water supplies and are suspected of being responsible for intensive care unit-acquired pneumonia. Identification of these bacteria is now based on determination of the 16S ribosomal DNA sequence. However, the 16S rRNA gene is not polymorphic enough to ensure discrimination of species defined by DNA-DNA relatedness. The complete rpoB sequences of 20 strains were first determined by both PCR and genome walking methods. The percentage of homology between different species ranged from 83 to 97% and was in all cases lower than that observed with the 16S rRNA gene; this was true even for species that differed in only one position. The taxonomy of Bosea and Afipia is discussed in light of these results. For strain identification that does not require the complete rpoB sequence (4,113 to 4,137 bp), we propose a simple computerized method that allows determination of nucleotide positions of high variability in the sequence that are bordered by conserved sequences and that could be useful for design of universal primers. A fragment of 740 to 752 bp that contained the most highly variable area (positions 408 to 420) was amplified and sequenced with these universal primers for 47 strains. The variability of this sequence allowed identification of all strains and correlated well with results of DNA-DNA relatedness. In the future, this method could be also used for the determination of variability "hot spots" in sets of housekeeping genes, not only for identification purposes but also for increasing the discriminatory power of sequence typing techniques such as multilocus sequence typing.  (+info)

Rare bacterium of new genus isolated with prolonged enrichment culture. (5/7)

Dynamic change in microbial flora was monitored with an oxygen electrode. The 1st phase microorganisms, which first grew well in LB medium, were followed by the 2nd phase microorganisms, which supposedly assimilated microbial cells of the 1st phase and their metabolites. In a similar way, a change in microbial flora was observed from the 1st phase to the 4th phase in 84 hr. Based on this observation, prolonged enrichment culture was done for as long as two months to increase the ratio of existence of rare microorganisms. From these culture liquids, four slow-growing bacteria (provisionally named Shinshu-ah1, -ah2, -ah3, and -ah4), which formed scarcely visible small colonies, were isolated. Sequence analysis of their 16S rDNA showed that Shinshu-ah1 had 97% homology with Bradyrhizobium japonicum and uncultured alpha proteobacterium clone blaii 16, Shinshu-ah2 91% with Rasbo bacterium, Alpha proteobacterium 34619, Bradyrhizobium genosp. P, Afipia felis and an unidentified bacterium, Shinshu-ah3 99% with Methylobacterium mesophilicum, and Shinshu-ah4 95% with Agromyces ramosus DSM 43045. Phylogenetic study indicated that Shinshu-ah2 had a possibility to form a new family, Shinshu-ah1 a new genus, and Shinshu-ah4 a new species.  (+info)

San Francisco, CA - Its almost like the plot of a horror movie. A 25-year-old infectious disease worker left work Friday only to die the next day after being infected with the contagious bacteria he had been working with.. The man worked at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center where, over the last few months, he had been working with a rare Neisseria meningitidis bacterial strain that causes septicemia and meningitis - both of which are nasty ways to go if left untreated.. Meningitis can lead to fever, headache, neck stiffness, coma and then death. By comparison, you would pray for this over septicemia, which is what investigators believe killed the man. Septicimia is inflammation of the bloodstream that causes bleeding into the skin and organs.

Karch kept himself awake with coffee, and to relax he went for walks with his German shepherd. "Can you imagine what Im going through?" he wrote in an email to Phillip Tarr at Washington University in St. Louis. His response came at 4:27 a.m.: "Epidemics are for younger men." Tarr, the second major EHEC expert next to Karch, had also never heard of an O104:H4 outbreak.. In the email, Karch speculated over why the disease wasnt happening in children, as is normally the case, but only in adults. And why was the infection striking more people that ever before in Germany - so many, in fact, that dialysis stations in several hospitals were almost full?…. Perhaps the genetic material of this rare bacterium has mutated again, so that its toxin or its bond to the intestinal cells it damages has become stronger. ...

Advice to Management. Coworkers do not create tight bonds due to long hours away from hour due to commute, so they are more focused on their personal time than making work relationships. Having worked in industry before this, the benefits that are offered do not correlate with such low non-competitive wages based on the lack of efforts by HR to mitigate costs with programs to increase employee happiness. OHSU benefits are about on par with private industry/medical standards, but most likely above university standards. HR takes advantage of the University label to excuse the non-competitive wages and expects a high employee turn over to resolve any wage issues. HR does not help with employee/supervisor issues and expects employees to leave instead of disciplining supervisors resulting in lack of communication with supervisors with bad management. HR provides a lack of training for new supervisors coming into their positions and check-in programs. Company is not sensitive to employees political ...
The researchers used a vaccination method that involves creating and maintaining resistance by programming a portion of the bodys immune system - effector memory T-cells - to look out for HIV at the site of infection. "HIV appears to be vulnerable when it is first introduced into mucosal surfaces in the body," said Louis Picker, M.D., associate director of the OHSU VGTI and director of the VGTIs vaccine program. "However, once HIV spreads throughout the entire body, it replicates very rapidly and becomes difficult if not impossible to control. Our approach is to attack during this early period of vulnerability. The approach is similar to that of a homeowner who sprays their house with water before sparks land on the roof. This approach can prevent the roof from catching fire and, in the case of HIV, prevent the spread of the virus.". ...

At each site (OHSU & UM), 180 socially isolated adults 80+ years old will be recruited through Meals on Wheels People. Participants will be randomized to either the Video Chat Group or the Control Group. Those in the Video Chat Group will receive a computer for the duration of the study, which they will use to video chat with study staff for 30 minutes/day 4x/week for 6 months, and then they will video chat 2x/week for another 6 months. Those assigned to the Control Group will have brief telephone check-ins with study staff once per week. In-home testing will occur at Baseline, 6 months and 12 months. All participants at OHSU will have their medication compliance tracked using electronic medication monitoring devices (MedTracker) and 50% of participants at both OHSU and UM will have MRIs at Baseline and 6 months, if they are able to safely receive MRIs. All participants at both sites will contribute saliva for genetic testing, and all video chat sessions will be recorded for speech and language ...

Tomorrow is a very important appointment for my dad up at OHSU. We have to be up there by 9a and hes meeting with his oncologist. My dad is supposed to get his last infusion of Yervoy tomorrow, but Im not sure if hes going to or not. It is a very major appointment...if they decide not to do the last infusion, that means my dad is literally out of options. He isnt eligible for any clinical trials, nor is he eligible for any other types of chemo. The Yervoy was it. It only has a success rate of about 10-20% so we knew going into it working on him was a long-shot, its just frustrating knowing that there is nothing else on the market to help him. Yervoy is a miracle drug for patients who can receive it, but we need MORE options for stage 4 patients. It is unacceptable to me that there isnt anything else my dad can take or try. I know finding a cure of melanoma isnt going to happen in the near future, but it seems like there should be more treatment options available to him. Its just ...

Following the recommendations of WVBPH and CDC, the clinic instituted several changes to its infection prevention and control practices; including using pre-packaged manufactured saline flushes. After the clinic changed this practice, Tsukamurella bloodstream infections stopped occurring, further supporting the saline flush as the source of infection. To help outpatient oncology facilities establish appropriate infection control strategies, the CDC developed a basic infection control plan tailored to these settings outlining key policies and procedures needed to meet minimal requirements for patient safety. These include the proper use and handling of injectable medications and correct procedures for assessing central lines. Outpatient oncology facilities without an existing plan are encouraged to use this document as a starting point.. Isaac See, Duc B.

PORTLAND, Ore. - Researchers at Oregon Health & Science University have discovered that a form of cell division typically associated with cancer called multipolar mitosis can yield diverse, viable cells capable of protecting the liver from injury and poisonous substances, such as pesticides, carcinogens or drugs. Their findings are published online in the journal Nature.. "Our findings show that the liver, which is known to have a tremendous capacity for regeneration, also has an amazing degree of diversity. A better understanding of this process may reveal why some individuals are more susceptible to different forms of liver injury than others, which could lead to new therapies for the treatment of liver disease," said Andrew Duncan, Ph.D., principal investigator and postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Markus Grompe, M.D., Papé Family Pediatric Institute, OHSU Doernbecher Childrens Hospital; and the Oregon Stem Cell Center at OHSU.. The liver comprises a pool of genetically distinct ...

Cedecea is a genus of extremely rare bacteria of the family Enterobacteriaceae. The name of this genus was derived from CDC, the abbreviation for the Centers for Disease Control where the initial members of this genus were discovered. This genus resembles no other group of Enterobacteriaceae. Cedecea bacteria are Gram-negative, bacillus in shape, motile, nonencapsulated, and nonspore-forming. The strains of Cedecea appear to be similar to those of Serratia. Both Cedecea and Serratia are lipase positive and resistant to colistin and cephalothin; however, Cedecea is unable to hydrolyze gelatin or DNA. Cedecea bacteria were discovered in 1977 by a group of scientists at the CDC and were initially named "Enteric Group 15". In 1980, Patrick A. D. Grimont and Francine Grimont proposed the genus name of Cedecea for this group. This particular name was given to "Enteric Group 15" for the abbreviation of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) where the group of bacteria was discovered. At this time, six ...

Strain JC163T exhibited catalase activity but not oxidase activity. Using the API 20E system, positive reactions were obtained for indole production, β-galactosidase and glucose, mannitol, sorbitol and rhamnose fermentation. E. massiliensis is susceptible to ticarcillin, imipenem, trimethoprim/sulfamthoxazole, gentamicin, amikacin, and colimycin but resistant to fosfomycin and nitrofurantoin. By comparison with E. arachidis, its phylogenetically-closest neighbor, E. massiliensis differed in arginine dihydrolase, ornithine decarboxylase, citrate and succinate fermentation [19].. Matrix-assisted laser-desorption/ionization time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) MS protein analysis was carried out as previously described [52]. Briefly, a pipette tip was used to pick one isolated bacterial colony from a culture agar plate and spread it as a thin film on a MTP 384 MALDI-TOF target plate (Bruker Daltonics, Germany). Twelve distinct deposits were done for strain JC163T from twelve isolated colonies. Each smear ...

As neurologists, we thought ischemia killed the neurons and that they were irreversibly lost from the brain. But this new data challenges that notion by showing that ischemia, or low blood flow to the brain, can alter the maturation of the neurons without causing the death of these cells. As a result, we can focus greater attention on developing the right interventions, at the right time early in development, to promote neurons to more fully mature and reduce the often serious impact of preterm birth. We now have a much more hopeful scenario," said Stephen Back, M.D., Ph.D., lead investigator and professor of pediatrics and neurology in the Papé Family Pediatric Research Institute at OHSU Doernbecher Childrens Hospital..... ...
Portland, Ore. - Oregon Health & Science University Knight Cancer Institute researchers found that the GRB7 gene drives an aggressive form of breast cancer and acts independently of the HER-2 gene, known to be a stimulator of breast cancer growth. Isolating the role of this gene could ultimately help fine-tune a patients treatment and enable physicians to provide a more accurate prognosis. The study, published online this month by Breast Cancer Research and Treatment, established that levels of GRB7, or growth factor receptor bound protein seven, are important on their own as a marker for aggressive breast cancer. Previously it was understood that patients whose breast cancer tumors tested positive for high levels of HER-2, the protein human epidermal growth factor receptor-2, tended to have a more aggressive form of the disease than patients whose tumors did not have elevated levels of this protein. However, OHSU Knight Cancer Institute researchers found that the protein driving this ...

September 11, 2013 Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A promising new AIDS vaccine being developed at Oregon Health & Science University has demonstrated the capacity to effectively remove all traces of an AIDS-causing virus from non-human primates, according to a newly published report in the journal Nature. The vaccine is being tested on a primate form of HIV, called simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), which causes AIDS in monkeys. After working further to refine the vaccine, OHSU scientists said they hoped an HIV-form of the potential vaccine could soon be tested in human subjects. "To date, HIV infection has only been cured in a very small number of highly-publicized but unusual clinical cases in which HIV-infected individuals were treated with anti-viral medicines very early after the onset of infection or received a stem cell transplant to combat cancer," said Dr. Louis Picker, associate director of the OHSU Vaccine and Gene Therapy ...
The Lund Report (Portland, Ore.), Jan. 26, 2016. The Affordable Care Act was expected to revolutionize healthcare in the US. But is access to healthcare easier? Have costs gone up or down? A Portland City Club forum puts tough questions to Oregon Health & Science University professors.. Healthcare is a $3 trillion industry in the U.S. with one out of every $5 passing through the hands of someone working in the industry, Dr. Samuel Metz of Physicians for a National Health Program, told a City Club audience Monday night.. And, everyone agreed costs are not going down. "The best forecast Ive seen shows healthcare (costs) will rise faster than GDP by about one percent," a year said John McConnell, an economist who heads OHSUs Center for Health Systems Effectiveness.. New, high-cost drugs put additional cost pressure on the system, and the stock market sees more money to be made in high-tech solutions that dont give what McConnell called a "return on health.".

Introduction. Background. Bartonella fall within the alpha-2 subgroup of the class Proteobacteria (Jacomo, Kelly & Raoult 2002). Recent studies have indicated that Bartonella species (spp.) have some degree of relatedness to other alpha-2 Proteobacteria including Brucella species, Afipia species, Agrobacterium tumefaciens, Bradyrhizobium species, and Bosea species (Duncan, Maggi & Breitschwerdt 2007; Greub & Raoult 2002; Houpikian & Raoult 2001; Jacomo et al. 2002; Pretorius, Beati & Birtles 2004; Rolain et al. 2004). Current knowledge suggests that there are more than 20 species and subspecies included within this genus (Márquez et al. 2008). Approximately 13 species have been associated with human diseases (Pérez-Martínez et al. 2009; Maggi et al. 2009; Pons et al. 2008) affecting both immunocompetent and immunocompromised individuals. At least six species affecting humans have been isolated from domestic cats and dogs (Chomel et al. 2006).. Bartonellae are pleomorphic, fastidious, ...
The purpose of this study is to better understand why individuals with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) fall. Understanding the mechanism of gait and balance dysfunction in individuals with PSP may provide us with important early diagnostic tools, allowing for earlier identification of mobility problems and to better evaluate medical therapies aimed at improving motor disability.. The investigators will recruit 10 PSP, 10 PD and 10 healthy controls for the study. All subjects will be asked to come to the OHSU clinic at the Center for Health and Healing for an initial screening visit. They will meet with the primary investigator to conduct a brief interview and physical examination. In addition, they will be asked to answer questions regarding current and past medical illness, how often they fall and what kinds of medications they are on.. Subjects who agree to participate will come to the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) at OHSU for balance testing. Subjects will ...

As such, several large-scale initiatives for studying cellular biology using image-based assays have been founded in recent years. Last week several members of the Human Protein Atlas met with representatives from the Allen Institute for Cell Science, the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, and the OHSU Cancer Cell Atlas at the Allen Institute for Cell Science in Seattle Washington to discuss how to best synergize our efforts in understanding the complexities of the cell. Key topics discussed in this meeting were possible collaborations to making the data, methods, and analysis from all initiatives open and easily accessible. ...
Hi, Ashley.. In my opinion, grade two is good news, especially compared to what you could have heard. We were told that grade two is usually much more slow growing. We also have been told by other doctors (at NIH) that the lack of gene deletions is not an absolute guarantee set in stone that chemo will not be as effective. My understanding (and I am no doctor--just a scared mom) is that the statistics show a more favorable response is more likely with the gene deletions than without. Our doctor at NIH said that he saw people who had the deletions and still did not do that well, and he saw people who did not have them, but still did good. I believe thats one of the problems with oligodendrogliomas...they are tricky and unpredictable. But that could work in our favor, since we dont like what they predict.

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 8, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- StemCells, Inc. (Nasdaq:STEM) today announced that it has discontinued its Phase Ib clinical trial in neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (NCL, also referred to as Batten disease), a rare and fatal neurodegenerative disorder in children, due to lack of patient accrual. In 2009, the Company completed a Phase I safety trial of its HuCNS-SC® human neural stem cells in six patients with advanced stages of NCL at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Doernbecher Childrens Hospital. In October 2010, the Company initiated a Phase Ib trial at OHSU to evaluate the cells in an additional six patients in earlier stages of the disease, and therefore most likely to benefit from a timely neural stem cell transplant. However, no eligible patients have been identified or enrolled despite diligent efforts by the clinical investigators over the past six months. Stephen Huhn, MD, FACS, FAAP, Vice President and Head of the CNS Program at StemCells, Inc., stated, ...
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ability to turn safely while walking is an important motor skill for independent mobility that is affected by aging and neurological diseases. Turning often results in freezing and/or falling in patients with Parkinsons disease (PD), and is commonly associated with hip fractures. However, asking a PD patient to execute a turn in a clinical environment often does not reveal their impairments. Patients at risk for a fall would benefit from a system that identifies and characterizes their daily mobility behavior to predict their risk of falling, benefits or side effects of treatment, and progression of disease. No curren system exists that identifies and characterizes turning performance unobtrusively during spontaneous, daily activity. Our long-term goal is to develop and commercialize a unique system to measure mobility (gait and dynamic balance) using wearable sensors throughout the day. Our OHSU/PSU start-up company, APDM, is developing systems to ...
Most bike shorts really are designed to be the only thing amongst both you and your bike seat. Incorporating Yet another thickness defeats the goal, no-underwear advocates say. And manufacturers commonly listing the padding in bike shorts as antimicrobial to control odor, so you are presently mainly sporting underwear.

Suzanne H. Mitchell, Ph.D., is a Professor at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in the Department of Behavioral Neuroscience, with secondary appointments in Psychiatry and in the Oregon Institute for Occupational health Science. She obtained her B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees at the University of Hull, England and her Ph.D. at SUNY-Stony Brook, USA. Her dissertation focused on the economics of foraging behavior of rats, examining the role of the energetic costs and benefits in feeding. Her committee was chaired by Howard Rachlin, whose influence made her sensitive to the role of temporal costs as well as energetic costs in determining the value of food rewards. During a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Chicago, Dr. Mitchell worked with Harriet de Wit, Ph.D. using behavioral economics as an explanation for use of alcohol, nicotine/cigarettes, and amphetamine in humans. During that time she also began collaborating with Jerry Richards, Ph.D. on delay discounting studies with rats. ...
Hi all, The OBO Foundry is currently working on some new and improved ontology management strategies. As these strategies and infrastructure mature, we will be making announcements on the OBO-Discuss mailing list and contacting each ontology steward. Because this listserve is currently listed as a contact for an OBO Foundry registered ontology, we would request that someone on this list please suggest a contact person. Please note that we will continue to maintain links to these associated listserves. Each ontology contact/steward (regardless if OBO or OWL) should subscribe to obo-discuss. You can do so here: https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/obo-discuss We would be grateful for your help in accomplishing our goal of having a contact person for each OBO ontology registered with the Foundry. On behalf of the OBO Foundry, Melissa Dr. Melissa Haendel Assistant Professor Ontology Development Group, OHSU Library http://www.ohsu.edu/library/ Department of Medical Informatics and ...
April 29. Loading day. I traveled to Oregon with graduate students Lindy Fine and Dong Yoon Lee yesterday. This morning with help from Joe Needoba we loaded a U-haul truck with equipment at OHSU in Hillsboro and then drove to Newport Oregon to meet the ship. We then spent the rest of the day loading a lot of equipment and supplies onto the R/V Oceanus in Newport, OR, and testing equipment and sensors. Murray Levine, Fred Prahl, and David Langler drove over from Corvallis to help set up our new 12L Owen Tube, which was fashioned from an externally-closed Ocean Dynamics horizontal niskin bottle (see picture). We deployed the new Owen Tube several times to work out our sampling routine. Later that evening we started setting up our amazingly heavy CTD frame, which is designed to handle the extreme currents in the Columbia River estuary without being washed away from the ship.. ...
In October 2014, Jacob Reynolds was at football practice when his foot slipped in a hole as he was being tackled. The fall created major damage to his leg, including a dislocated knee cap and torn ligaments. The damage was so severe, it led to Compartment syndrome, which created excessive pressure and fluid buildup inside his body causing Jacob to go into congestive heart failure. What started off as a bad leg injury suddenly became more serious, and Jacob was facing a life or death situation.. His local doctors made an emergency call to two different vascular surgeons - one in Portland and the other in Seattle. The Portland doctor called back first, and Jacob took a four-hour ambulance ride to OHSU. After arriving, he underwent several life-saving surgeries.. "I didnt know where I was going or what I was doing," Jacobs mom Denise said. "I just packed my bag.". For the first night, Denise didnt leave her sons side. The social worker made the call, and found the family a room at the Ronald ...
