Population genetic analysis of Bartonella bacilliformis isolates from areas of peru where Carrion's disease is endemic and epidemic. (1/12)

Carrion's disease is caused by infection with the alpha-proteobacterium Bartonella bacilliformis. Distribution of the disease is considered coincident with the distribution of its known vector, the sand fly Lutzomyia verrucarum. Recent epidemics of B. bacilliformis infections associated with atypical symptomatology in nonendemic regions have raised questions regarding the historic and present distribution of this bacterium and the scope of disease that infection causes. Phylogenetic relationships and genomic diversity of 18 B. bacilliformis isolates (10 isolates from a region where Carrion's disease is epidemic, Cuzco, Peru, and 8 isolates from a region where Carrion's disease is endemic, Caraz, Peru) were assessed using genomic data generated by infrequent restriction site PCR and gene sequence analysis of the flagellin gltA and ialB genes. A population genetic analysis of the genomic diversity suggests that what was once considered an epidemic region of Peru did not result from the recent introduction of B. bacilliformis.  (+info)

Characterization and expression analysis of the groESL operon of Bartonella bacilliformis. (2/12)

The groESL operon of Bartonella bacilliformis, a facultative intracellular, Gram-negative bacterium and etiologic agent of Oroya Fever, was characterized. Sequence analysis revealed an operon containing two genes of 294 (groES) and 1632 nucleotides (groEL) separated by a 55-nt intergenic spacer. The operon is preceded by a 72-nt ORF (ORF1) that encodes a hypothetical protein with homology to a portion of the HrcA repressor for groESL. A divergent fumarate hydratase C (fumC) gene lies further upstream. Deduced amino acid sequences for B. bacilliformis GroEL and GroES revealed a high degree of identity with homologues from other Bartonella and alpha-Protebacteria. A single transcriptional start site (TSS) was mapped 79 nucleotides upstream of the groES start codon, regardless of incubation temperature. The TSS was located immediately 5' to a potential controlling inverted repeat of chaperonin expression (CIRCE) element and is preceded by a sigma70-like promoter. The operon is followed by a predicted rho-independent transcriptional terminator. Northern blot analysis indicated that groES and groEL are co-transcribed as a single mRNA of approximately 2.4 kb. A 6-h time course analysis by qRT-PCR showed that groEL expression increases 1.3-fold within 30 min of a temperature upshift from 30 to 37 degrees C, with maximum transcription reached after 60 min (approximately 4.3-fold), followed by a steady decrease to background (30 degrees C) transcription levels by 6 h. Western blot analysis revealed a 1.4- and 1.5-fold increase in GroEL synthesis following a temperature upshift or by inhibiting DNA supercoiling with coumermycin A1, respectively. Functional expression and complementation of temperature-sensitive Escherichia coli groES or groEL mutants with the cloned operon allowed them to grow at otherwise restrictive temperatures.  (+info)

Bartonella bacilliformis GroEL: effect on growth of human vascular endothelial cells in infected cocultures. (3/12)

Bartonella are the only bacteria known to induce angioproliferative lesions of the human vasculature and liver during infection. Previous work from our lab suggests that GroEL participates in the mitogenic response observed in HUVEC cultures supplemented with the soluble fraction of Bartonella bacilliformis. Work in this study shows that exposure to high concentrations of the fraction is actually cytotoxic for HUVECs. To analyze this phenomenon, live B. bacilliformis-HUVEC cocultures were employed to study the effect of excess bacterial GroEL on the host cell during active infection. Four B. bacilliformis strains were generated to produce varying levels of GroEL. HUVEC cocultures with LSS100, a strain that synthesizes markedly greater quantities of GroEL relative to others, significantly accelerates apoptosis of the cocultured HUVECs relative to other strains. Acceleration of apoptosis can be inhibited by Z-VAD-FMK, a pan-caspase inhibitor. Time course data show that, at 18 h of infection, both LSS100 and control strains significantly inhibit spontaneous apoptosis of cocultured HUVECs, as previously reported for other Bartonella species. However, by 48 h, LSS100 significantly increases apoptosis of the host cell. We hypothesize that intracellular Bartonella GroEL functions as an Hsp60 analogue, a eukaryotic orthologue known to accelerate pro-caspase 3 activation by enhancing its vulnerability to upstream activator caspases. These data suggest another strategy whereby Bartonella may regulate host cell growth.  (+info)

Molecular mechanisms of resistance to antibiotics in Bartonella bacilliformis. (4/12)

OBJECTIVES: Bartonella bacilliformis is the aetiological agent of Carrion's disease. Although ciprofloxacin, rifampicin and erythromycin have been successfully used in the treatment of the disease, failures and relapses have been reported. The objective of our study was to select in vitro mutants resistant to antibiotics in order to determine the frequency of mutations and to characterize the mechanism of resistance at the molecular level. METHODS: Antibiotic-resistant mutants were selected by serial passages of bacteria on blood agar plates containing antibiotics. Candidate genes involved in resistance were amplified and sequenced and compared in order to look at mutations associated with antibiotic resistance. RESULTS: Ciprofloxacin-, rifampicin- and erythromycin-resistant mutants were obtained after five, three and four passages, respectively. Conversely, no mutant was obtained with either gentamicin or doxycycline even after 16 passages. The ciprofloxacin mutant contained an amino acid change at position 87 (Asp --> Asn) in its quinolone resistance-determining region of the DNA gyrase protein, whereas the rifampicin-resistant strain had an amino acid change at position 531 (Ser --> Phe) in the rifampicin resistance-determining region of the rpoB gene. Similarly, the erythromycin-resistant mutant showed an A2058G mutation in the 23S rRNA gene. CONCLUSIONS: According with the current knowledge on the treatment of human bartonellosis, we believe that doxycycline in association with gentamicin may be the preferred regimen for the treatment of the acute and eruptive stages of Carrion's disease, but clinical trials are warranted to support our findings.  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of Bartonella bacilliformis from an expatriate Ecuadorian. (5/12)

Carrion's disease is typically biphasic with acute febrile illness characterized by bacteremia and severe hemolytic anemia (Oroya fever), followed by benign, chronic cutaneous lesions (verruga peruana). The causative agent, Bartonella bacilliformis, is endemic in specific regions of Peru and Ecuador. We describe atypical infection in an expatriate patient who presented with acute splenomegaly and anemia 3 years after visiting Ecuador. Initial serology and PCR of the patient's blood and serum were negative for Bartonella henselae, Bartonella quintana, and B. bacilliformis. Histology of splenic biopsy was suggestive of bacillary angiomatosis, but immunohistochemistry ruled out B. henselae and B. quintana. Bacilli (isolate EC-01) were subsequently cultured from the patient's blood and analyzed using multilocus sequence typing, protein gel electrophoresis with Western blotting, and an immunofluorescence assay (IFA) against a panel of sera from patients with Oroya fever in Peru. The EC-01 nucleotide sequences (gltA and internal transcribed spacer) and protein band banding pattern were most similar to a subset of B. bacilliformis isolates from the region of Caraz, Ancash, in Peru, where B. bacilliformis is endemic. By IFA, the patient's serum reacted strongly to two out of the three Peruvian B. bacilliformis isolates tested, and EC-01 antigen reacted with 13/20 Oroya fever sera. Bacilliary angiomatosis-like lesions were also detected in the spleen of the patient, who was inapparently infected with B. bacilliformis and who presumably acquired infection in a region of Ecuador where B. bacilliformis was not thought to be endemic. This study suggests that the range of B. bacilliformis may be expanding from areas of endemicity in Ecuador and that infection may present as atypical clinical disease.  (+info)

Susceptibility of owl monkeys (Aotus nancymaae) to experimental infection with Bartonella bacilliformis. (7/12)

Bartonellosis, caused by Bartonella bacilliformis, is a clinically significant disease in parts of South America, where it is characterized by fever and hemolytic anemia during the often-fatal acute stage and warty skin eruptions during chronic disease. In this study, we evaluated owl monkeys (Aotus nancymaae) as a potential model for studying the immunogenicity and pathology of bartonellosis. Two groups of animals (n = 3 per group) received either 9.5 x 10(7) CFU B. bacilliformis by the ID route or 1.1 x 10(6) CFU by the IV route and were followed for 140 d. Animals were evaluated by physical exam, complete blood count or hematocrit (or both); infection was confirmed by Giemsa staining of blood smears, PCR amplification, and blood culture. On days 7 and 21, Giemsa-stained blood smears from both groups contained organisms (1% to 4% of erythrocytes). All blood cultures and PCR tests were negative. Complete blood counts and chemistry panels showed no difference from baseline. Serology revealed a greater than 4-fold increase in the IgM titer (compared with baseline levels) in the 3 animals from the ID group and 1 animal from the IV group. On day 35, a dermal lesion was excised from the inguinal region of 1 monkey from each group, with a second lesion excised on day 84 from the same monkey in the IV group. However the histopathology and immunostaining of these samples were not consistent with B. bacilliformis. The present study shows that owl monkeys can be infected with B. bacilliformis, but additional dosage studies are necessary to evaluate the usefulness of this species as a disease model for human bartonellosis.  (+info)

Bartonella bacilliformis is the causative agent of bartonellosis (also known as Carrions disease), a biphasic disease endemic to Andean valleys in Peru, Columbia and Ecuador. It is transmitted by the sandfly Phlebotomus verrucarum which is limited to these areas. The bacterium was first isolated in 1909 by the Peruvian physician Albert Barton. Bartonellosis is usually characterized by two distinctive stages: a sudden (acute), potentially life-threatening illness associated with high fever and decreased levels of circulating red blood cells (i.e., hemolytic anemia) called Oroya fever. Mortality rates of up to 40-80% in untreated patients are reported. The second phase, which can take between 2 weeks to several years to manifest is characterized by a chronic, benign skin (cutaneous) eruption consisting of raised, reddish-purple nodules on the head and extremities (called Verruga peruana).

During May 1998, we conducted a case-control study of 357 participants from 60 households during an outbreak of acute bartonellosis in the Urubamba Valley, Peru, a region not previously considered endemic for this disease. Blood and insect specimens were collected and environmental assessments were done. Case-patients (n = 22) were defined by fever, anemia, and intra-erythrocytic coccobacilli seen in thin smears. Most case-patients were children (median age = 6.5 years). Case-patients more frequently reported sand fly bites than individuals of neighboring households (odds ratio [OR] = 5.8, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.2-39.2), or members from randomly selected households > or = 5 km away (OR = 8.5, 95% CI = 1.7-57.9). Bartonella bacilliformis isolated from blood was confirmed by nucleotide sequencing (citrate synthase [g/tA], 338 basepairs). Using bacterial isolation (n = 141) as the standard, sensitivity, specificity, and positive predictive value of thin smears were 36%, 96%, and 44%,

In this study, we demonstrate that members of the α and ε Proteobacteria, including three important human pathogens, C. jejuni, H. pylori, and Bartonella bacilliformis, possess flagellin molecules that cannot be recognized by TLR5. Their unique flagellin sequences contain amino acid differences in the TLR5 recognition site that permit TLR5 evasion, as well as compensatory mutations that preserve bacterial motility.. This study independently confirms the location of the TLR5 recognition site on flagellin. Flagellins TLR5-stimulatory activity lies predominantly in the N-terminal D1 domain, centered around amino acids 89-96, but requires additional contribution from the D2-D3 and the C-terminal D1 domain. Flagellin is a good adjuvant (e.g. see ref. 26), and this study and our previous report (3) clearly demonstrate that flagellins adjuvant activity is contained entirely within the amino acid sequence and is easily amenable to manipulation. Our studies indicate that proper folding and ...

Since 1984 Aotus nancymaae has been traded illegally from Peru and Brazil to Colombia for malaria research and later released to the wild in Colombian territory (Maldonado et al. 2009, Ruiz-Garcia et al. 2013). Trapping permits for malaria research are granted by the regional environmental authority, Corpoamazonia, to the biomedical facility FIDIC, in Leticia, Colombia. SINCHI (the Research Institute for the Colombian Amazon) and the Genetics Laboratory of the Colombian National University - IGUN-UNAL - (CITES Scientific Authorities) conducted a pilot project to gather baseline information on the genetics and ecology of Aotus spp. where the FIDIC had been trapping and releasing animals. Results from the UNAL/SINCHI study confirmed the presence of A. nancymaae in Colombian territory and suggested the existence of a historical distribution of A. nancymaae north of the Amazon River, as well as of another population of A. nancymaae, not of historical lineage but probably introduced in Colombia in ...

Abstract We report a case of cutaneous bartonellosis in a 24-year-old Italian woman. Soon after returning from a seven-month stay in a central area of Peru at an altitude of 3,130 meters, she developed high fever, headache, and muscle and joint pain that resolved after antibiotic therapy. Two months later, she presented with disseminated, painless, firm, purple, subcutaneous nodules on the neck, shoulders, legs, left eyelid, and hard palate, some of which developed into vegetating lesions. The diagnosis of bartonellosis was made on the basis of the clinical picture, the patient's medical history, the incubation period, the confirmatory histopathologic findings, and the response to treatment with chloramphenicol (500 mg four times a day for 14 days).

The Soviet Union was heavily dependent on rail transport, not least during the Russian Civil War and World War II, but also for industrialization according to the five-year plans. During the Soviet era, freight rail traffic increased 55 times (over that of the Russian empire just before World War I), passenger traffic increased almost 10 times, and the length of the rail network almost doubled. The Soviet Union had a railway network of 147,400 kilometres (91,600 mi) (excluding industrial railways), of which 53,900 kilometres (33,500 mi) were electrified. After the foundation of the Soviet Union the Peoples Commissariat of Railways (NKPS) (after 1946 renamed the Ministry of Railways (МПС)), the railway network expanded to a total length of 106,100 km by 1940 (vs. 81,000 km in 1917 which was exceeded in length only by the United States). The volume of freight hauled (in tonne-km) increased over 4 fold during this period. A notable project of the late 1920s and one of the centerpieces of the ...

Plague is still endemic in certain tropical and subtropical areas, and localised outbreaks are not uncommon especially in war situations, eg Vietnam, where there has been an increase in recent years. Relapsing fever in Africa and Bartonellosis (Carrions disease) are geographically limited in extent.. Among the protozoal infections, African trypanosomiasis is increasing both in West and East Africa but, in numerical terms, is still mainly of importance for its effect on domestic animals. South American trypano-somiasis (Chagas disease) extends through much of the sub-continent and appears to be responsible for considerable morbidity in parts of its distribution. Malaria and leishmaniasis are widespread and cause severe morbidity and mortality in many countries.. Of the tissue filariases, those due to Wuchereria bancrofti and Brugia malayi may produce serious deformity, while the skin dwelling parasite, Onchocerca volvulus, causes blindness in parts of tropical Africa and Central America.. While ...

If bovine growth hormones genetically modified the cow I would think there would be no need to use them anymore. By now all those herds of cows should be composed of genetically modified cows that were once calfs of said cows on BGH. BGH has been an issue for years. If it caused genetic modifications no one would need to use it anymore IMO. (There are human growth hormones sold to older people. If it caused genetic modification and made the people younger they wouldnt need to keep buying the product to continue to get results. It is a hormone which is much different than genetically modifying seed corn to have certain characteristics that carry on from all subsequent generations. Genetically Modified Organism means going in and modifying the original genetics of an organism. Natural mutations and other things do not count ...

Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Carrion (sexton) beetle head and thorax (Cryptarcha sp.). The genus Cryptarcha belongs to the family Nitidulidae and are common carrion beetles (also known as burying beetles or sap beetles). Cryptarchaspecies are part of the sub-family Cryptarchinae and have a life cycle of breeding on small carrion (dead animal carcass). Cryptarchabeetles will mate and lay eggs on a decaying carcass. If the carcass is small the adult male and female will dig the ground under it until the carcass is buried. When the burying beetle eggs hatch the larva then consume as much of the carcass as they can, pupate then become adults. Carrion beetles are important to forensic entomologists Magnification: x13 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres. - Stock Image C037/0312

To know the five-year survival and its associated factors in patients with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in Peru. Materials and Methods. A retrospective cohort of patients with ALL treated with chemotherapy in a Peruvian hospital for 13 years was studied. The dependent variables were overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS). Possible factors that might be associated with diagnosis and response to treatment were evaluated using the Cox proportional risk method. Results. The mortality rate was 32.5% and the relapse rate was 66.1%. The factors associated with lower overall survival were leukocyte count at diagnosis (HR: 1.01; 95% CI: 1.01-1.03), lineage other than B (HR: 2.15; 95% CI: 1,06-4,41), ...
En la Universidad peruana donde enseño predomina el concepto de que los alumnos del 4 año de medicina, deben practicar y aprender pulcra y exquisitamente la anamnesis y el examen físico, para realizar con ellos el diagnóstico inicial de enfermedades. No obstante, en los últimos años en algunas universidades del Perú y en la mayoría del extranjero se agrega a lo anterior datos de exámenes auxiliares (tecnología, a veces muy sofisticada). El no hacerlo, para realizar diagnósticos iniciales de diversas enfermedades implica una devaloración de la avanzada tecnológica -cada vez mas precisa- con preferencia por datos acopiados artesanalmente. Algo tonto y desfasado ya que en la actualidad la anamnesis es realizada por robots que escuchan, hablan, ven, razonan, aprenden y son capaces de arribar a diagnósticos preliminares precisos. En la medida que los softwares de inteligencia artificial (AI), se perfeccionen los diagnósticos serán mas precisos, superando incluso al realizado por los ...

Bartonella spp. are responsible for emerging and re-emerging diseases around the world. The majority of human infections are caused by Bartonella henselae, Bartonella quintana and Bartonella bacilliformis, although other Bartonella spp. have also been associated with clinical manifestations in humans. The severity of Bartonella infection correlates with the patients immune status. Clinical manifestations can range from benign and self-limited to severe and life-threatening disease. Clinical conditions associated with Bartonella spp. include local lymphadenopathy, bacteraemia, endocarditis, and tissue colonisation resulting in bacillary angiomatosis and peliosis hepatis. Without treatment, Bartonella infection can cause high mortality. To date, no single treatment is effective for all Bartonella-associated diseases. In the absence of systematic reviews, treatment decisions for Bartonella infections are based on case reports that test a limited number of patients. Antibiotics do not significantly ...
Bartonella bacteria cause several diseases in humans. The three most common are cat scratch disease, caused by B. henselae; trench fever, caused by B. quintana; and Carrións disease, caused by B. bacilliformis.
Bartonellosis is an emerging infectious bacterial disease in dogs, caused by the gram-negative bacteria Bartonella, which may affect cats and humans as well.

Like most studies comparing and contrasting viewpoints of employers and their employees, there exists a gap that, if understood and addressed, can guide employers to make impactful decisions to better design and communicate assignment packages that more adeptly address the needs of their employees abroad and increase their satisfaction," Kenton said.. About the Survey. Similar to the 2001 study, the "Expatriate Trends Study 2013" was conducted though a web survey instrument. No self-identifying information was captured, keeping all individual responses anonymous and confidential. This chosen method of anonymity encourages more candid feedback from respondents. Data Collection occurred by The Marketing Audit over eight weeks from August 2 to September 30, 2013 with a sample sizes of 1,511 in 140 countries and a confidence rate of 95 percent, with margin of error at +/- 2.3 percent.

The American Wirehair breed, which arose due to a spontaneous mutation in a litter of barn kittens, is notable for its unusual coat of wiry, kinked fur.. The distinguishing features of the American Wirehair are the breeds crimped, springy fur and curly whiskers. The coat is typically coarse, hard, and wiry; if it is too soft or long, it may straighten as the cat ages, or form ringlets or waves. All layers of the short, dense coat (guard, awn, and down) are made up of kinked fur.. The American Wirehair has a strong, solid body and a round head with large, wide-spaced eyes and slightly rounded ear tips, creating a sweet teddy bear appearance. Adult males typically weight between 8 and 11 pounds, and females are smaller at 6 to 9 pounds.. The American Wirehair may be any colour or pattern except for those associated with the Siamese, such as point patterns and chocolate or lavender shades.. American Wirehair Cat History. The American Wirehair arose due to a natural mutation in 1966 in New York. ...

I realize that at the time Dinotopia was first written, Quetzalcoatlus was believed to be a pelagic, soaring animal, something like an albatross. however we now know that it actually spent most of its time on the ground on all fours (Naish and Witton, 2007) and fed on small land animals and carrion, much like a marabou stork. Also, how does Arthur Denison know what (for instance) a Deinonychus is when it was not named by the scientific community until 1969? ...
Certain Bartonella species are known to cause afebrile bacteremia in humans and other mammals, including B. quintana, the agent of trench fever, and B. henselae, the agent of cat scratch disease. Reports have indicated that animal-associated Bartonella species may cause paucisymptomatic bacteremia and endocarditis in humans. We identified potentially zoonotic strains from 6 Bartonella species in samples from patients who had chronic, subjective symptoms and who reported tick bites. Three strains were B. henselae and 3 were from other animal-associated Bartonella spp. (B. doshiae, B. schoenbuchensis, and B. tribocorum). Genomic analysis of the isolated strains revealed differences from previously sequenced Bartonella strains. Our investigation identifed 3 novel Bartonella spp. strains with human pathogenic potential and showed that Bartonella spp. may be the cause of undifferentiated chronic illness in humans who have been bitten by ticks.
Well as far as my symptoms go I would say they mirror your exactly. I began neuro symptoms like vertigo, twitching fingers and muscles which was quickly followed by knee crunching along with pretty much every other joint in my body. I was diagnosed with arthritis and MS. I then did my own research and came up with the Lyme diagnosis which was later confirmed by a positive IGG/IGM. I also had large stretch marks all over my stomach and side which were a clear indication of Bartonella. My cognitive symptoms have also been severe, OCD anxiety brain fog unable to comprehend anything and depression. I would say with this being the UK we both have a very similar case of Lyme and Bart. I am only 24 by the way so also similar in that way and I contracted it when I was around 21/22 years old. So lets just say I completely understand and sympathise with what your going through as I am going through the exact same thing. As for treatment I would say Ciprofloxacin is good for bartonella but you need to be ...

Bartonella henselae is a zoonotic agent in which the domestic cat serves as the natural reservoir, and humans acquire potentially serious infections associated with this microorganism. The purpose of this research is to contribute to the understanding of the pathogenesis of B. henselae in the domestic cat using a molecular approach. Using sequence differences in a portion of the I 6S rRNA gene between B. henselae genotype I, and B. henselae genotype II, a nested polymerase chain reaction (nPCR) was designed and used to investigate various phases of feline bartonellosis. The nPCR detected 3.2 organisms per milliliter of blood which is below the detection limits of standard bacterial culture. Bartonella henselae LSU 16 genotype II, Bartonella henselae Baby genotype II, Bartonella henselae 87--66 genotype I, and Bartonella henselae Houston-1 genotype I were used in this study to infect cats. The PCR assay detected Bartonella DNA in 40 blood samples that were culture negative. The bacteremia as
What is Bartonella? When one forays into the world of chronic Lyme disease the word Bartonella immediately comes up. What is it? I have written about it from time to time and treated it for a long time. What do we know? Medical textbooks and published papers are at odds with "Lyme" literature. Bartonella is classified as a new and emerging infectious disease. Clinical infection is largely seen as opportunistic. This means that Bartonella under normal circumstances is unlikely to cause clinical disease: it has low pathogenicity. Commercial laboratories only offer serological tests for two species, B. henselae and B. quintana. Newer information informs us that numerous other species, including: B. koehlerae, B. vinsonii and B. berkhoffi have been found in the blood of Lyme patients. Doctors have known about the prevalence of Bartonella species in some populations for some time. A study published in 1996 looked at the incidence of three species of Bartonella found in inner-city IV drug users in ...

Thanks to two readers who provided comments with corrections, we now know that this is a Clown Beetle in the genus Saprinus. According to the Australian Museum site: "Histerids are usually shiny black or metallic-green beetles with introverted heads. Carrion-feeding forms generally hide under a corpse during the daylight, and only become active at night when they enter the maggot-infested part of the corpse to capture and devour maggots. Like other beetles inhabiting carrion, they have fast larval development with only two larval stages. Beetles of the genus Saprinus are among the first beetles to arrive at carrion. The adults feed on both the larvae and pupae of all species of blowfly, although they have a preference for fresh pupae. The adults lay their eggs in the corpse, and the larvae feed on blowfly pupae when they emerge." The Atlas of Living Australia has supporting imagery and a nice range map ...

Bacteria of the genus Bartonella inhabit the red blood cells of many mammals, including humans, and are transmitted by blood-sucking arthropod vectors. Different species of Bartonella are associated with different mammalian host species, to which they have adapted and normally do not cause any symptoms. Incidental infection of other hosts is however often followed by various disease symptoms, and several Bartonella species are considered as emerging human pathogens.. In this work, I have studied the genomic diversity within and between different Bartonella species, with focus on the feline-associated human pathogen B. henselae and its close relatives, the similarly feline-associated B. koehlerae and the trench-fever agent B. quintana which is restricted to humans.. In B. henselae, the overall variability in sequence and genome content was modest and well correlated, suggesting low levels of intra-species recombination in the core genome. The variably present genes were located in the prophage ...
Results The patient, offspring of an unrelated Caucasian couple with uneventful past medical history, presented with erythematous papular rash, biquotidian fever, night sweats and arthralgias. There was no antecedent history of foreign travel or contact with animals. Investigations showed increased inflammatory markers (ESR 86,CRP 80 [range 0-10mg/dl)], thrombocytosis, hypercalcemia and raised ALP and angiotensin converting enzyme(ACE). Quantiferon test was negative. Abdominal imaging (USS followed by MRI) showed multifocal calcified granulomas of the liver and spleen, chest radiograph showed enlarged hilar lymph nodes; ophthalmology review showed low grade panuveitis. Diffrentials included systemic JIA, small vessel vasulitides and sarcoidosis. Clinical, laboratory and imaging features pointed towards sarcoidosis. However, subsequent raised titers (IgM 1:32, IgG 1:256) against bartonella confirmed the diagnosis of B. henselae infection. She tested negative for HIV1+2 and lymphocyte subset ...
A 19-year-old healthy female presented with an abrupt deterioration of left eye vision of 1-day duration. For 10 days prior to presentation, she was suffering from dry cough; 5 days later she had intermittent fever up to 41°C with shaking chills. There was a history of contact with a cat, but she denied being scratched. On admission, physical and neurologic examinations were unremarkable. Ophthalmologic assessment disclosed visual acuity of 4/4 in the right eye and 4/60 in the left eye. She had normal anterior segments and intraocular pressures. A left afferent pupillary defect was noted. Funduscopy of the right eye showed a small white optic disk lesion in its temporal aspect with a deep retinal white lesion along the superonasal arcade (Fig. 1). The left optic disk had blurred margins with bigger white lesions in its nasal and temporal aspects with an associated localized vitreous opacity on its surface (Fig. 1). There was marked macular edema and two deep retinal white lesions along the ...
Bartonella spp. are a group of related bacteria, most of which have only been discovered within the last 10 years. They are able to infect and survive inside cells, causing persistent infections in mammals. Infection with Bartonella spp., however, does not always cause disease manifestations and for this reason, a positive blood test documenting infection with Bartonella spp. does not necessarily mean that Bartonella is the cause of an animal\s disease. However, in people, there is growing evidence implicating Bartonella spp. as a cause of a broad spectrum of disease syndromes, and there is some evidence to support the potential that chronic Bartonella infection may contribute to the development of cancer. The purpose of this study is look for evidence of Bartonella infection in Golden Retrievers with lymphoma, as compared to a healthy control group. We will use standard serologic tests which are currently available for Bartonella spp. testing of dogs, but we will also use a newer, more broadly

The disparities that we have identified in the statuses, roles, opportunities, and recognition granted to national, as compared with expatriate personnel, have multiple sources. Some of these originated in explicit policies of MSF-B in Russia and stemmed from the long-term nature of the projects in which the organization was engaged in this setting; others were inadvertent consequences of attitudes and behaviors that were not necessarily intended to produce the results that they did.25. To begin with, MSFs formal "policy for human resources in the missions" contained stipulations that a mission should not be administered solely by national personnel, and that a national should not occupy the post of Head of Mission. One of the cardinal factors involved here is what is sometimes referred to as the precept of "proximity," which is of great importance to MSF. It pertains to MSFs commitment to be "in the field" - that is, for its members to be physically "present" with the "people in precarious ...
