Treatment of chancroid, 1997. (1/171)

Since the 1993 treatment guidelines for sexually transmitted diseases were published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, experience has indicated that the regimens recommended then remain largely effective. The recommended therapies--with azithromycin (1 g orally, once), ceftriaxone (250 mg intramuscularly, once), or erythromycin (500 mg orally, four times a day for 7 days)--appear highly effective in the United States; limited data from Kenya suggest that the ceftriaxone regimen may not be as effective there as it once was. The alternative regimen of ciprofloxacin proposed in 1993 (500 mg orally, twice a day for 3 days) is as effective as the recommended therapies, but new information indicates that single-dose therapy with 500 mg orally is not as effective as the use of either larger single doses or more prolonged therapy. Persons who are infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) do not respond as well as those who are not HIV-infected, and males who are uncircumcised appear not to respond as well as those who are circumcised.  (+info)

Experimental infection of human volunteers with Haemophilus ducreyi does not confer protection against subsequent challenge. (2/171)

Two groups of human volunteers were inoculated with 2 doses of live Haemophilus ducreyi 35000HP. The reinfection group consisted of 7 subjects who previously had participated in experimental infection with 35000HP to the pustular stage of disease. The control group consisted of 7 naive subjects. Papules developed at 92.8% (95% confidence interval [CI], 66.1%-99.8%) of sites inoculated with live bacteria, in the reinfection group, and at 85.7% (95% CI, 57.2%-98. 2%) of sites in the control group. Sixty-nine percent (95% CI, 36. 8%-90.9%) of papules evolved into pustules in the reinfection group, compared with 41% (95% CI, 15.2%-72.3%) in the control group. The recovery rates of H. ducreyi from surface cultures and the histopathology of biopsies obtained from both groups were similar. Thus, experimental infection to the pustular stage of disease does not provide protective immunity against subsequent challenge.  (+info)

Molecular characterization of Haemophilus ducreyi strains from Jackson, Mississippi, and New Orleans, Louisiana. (3/171)

Chancroid, a sexually transmitted disease caused by Haemophilus ducreyi, is one of the most common genital ulcer diseases in developing countries. In the United States, while less common, the disease has been associated with outbreaks in inner cities, particularly among persons who engage in sex for drugs or money. Two outbreaks of chancroid were recently studied in the United States, one in New Orleans (from 1990 to 1992) and one in Jackson, Mississippi (from 1994 to 1995). By use of ribotyping, plasmid content, and antibiotic susceptibility, the chancroid cases in New Orleans were found to be due to a limited number of strains, consistent with a limited introduction of H. ducreyi into this community. The H. ducreyi isolates from New Orleans and Jackson had different ribotype patterns, suggesting that the two outbreaks were probably not linked.  (+info)

Prevalence of, antibody response to, and immunity induced by Haemophilus ducreyi hemolysin. (4/171)

Haemophilus ducreyi, the etiologic agent of chancroid, a genital ulcer disease, produces a cell-associated hemolysin whose role in virulence is not well defined. Hemolysin is encoded by two genes, hhdA and hhdB, which, based on their homology to Serratia marcescens shlA and shlB genes, are believed to encode the hemolysin structural protein and a protein required for secretion and modification of this protein, respectively. In this study, we determined the prevalence and expression of the hemolysin genes in 90 H. ducreyi isolates obtained from diverse geographic locations from 1952 to 1996 and found that all strains contained DNA homologous to the hhdB and hhdA genes. In addition, all strains expressed a hemolytic activity. We also determined that hemolysin is expressed in vivo and is immunogenic, as indicated by the induction of antibodies to hemolysin in both the primate and rabbit disease models as well as in human patients with naturally acquired chancroid. Wild-type strain 35000 and isogenic hemolysin-negative mutants showed no difference in lesion development in the temperature-dependent rabbit model. However, immunization of rabbits with the purified hemolysin protein reduced the recovery of wild-type H. ducreyi, but not hemolysin-negative mutants, from lesions. Our study indicates that hemolysin is a possible candidate for vaccine development due to its immunogenicity, expression in vitro and in vivo by most, if not all, strains, and the effect of immunization on reducing the recovery of viable H. ducreyi in experimental disease in rabbits.  (+info)

Target cell range of Haemophilus ducreyi hemolysin and its involvement in invasion of human epithelial cells. (5/171)

Haemophilus ducreyi, the causative agent of chancroid, produces a hemolysin, whose role in virulence is not well defined. To assess the possible role of hemolysin in pathogenesis, we evaluated its target cell range by using wild-type H. ducreyi 35000, nonhemolytic mutants with the hemolysin structural gene deleted, and isogenic strains expressing different amounts of hemolytic activity. The cytotoxicity of the various cell types was assessed by quantitating the release of lactate dehydrogenase into culture supernatants as a measure of cell lysis. In these experiments, human foreskin fibroblasts, human foreskin epithelial cells, and, to a lesser extent, HEp-2 cells were lysed by H. ducreyi hemolysin. Hemolysin also lysed human blood mononuclear cells and immune system cell lines including U937 macrophage-like cells, T lymphocytes, and B lymphocytes. In contrast, human polymorphonuclear leukocytes were not sensitive to hemolysin under the conditions tested. We also analyzed the effect of hemolysin on invasion of human epithelial cells and found that H. ducreyi strains expressing cloned hemolysin genes showed a 10-fold increase in invasion compared to the control strain. These data support the hypothesis that the H. ducreyi hemolysin is important in the pathogenesis of chancroid and may contribute to ulcer formation, invasion of epithelial cells, and evasion of the immune response.  (+info)

Seroprevalence and incidence of genital ulcer infections in a rural Ugandan population. (6/171)

OBJECTIVES: To determine age-sex specific seroprevalence and incidence rates of Treponema pallidum, Haemophilus ducreyi, and HSV-2; to assess the association between HIV-1 status and incidence of these STIs; and HSV-2 serostatus with number of lifetime sexual partners. METHODS: Antibodies against HIV-1, T pallidum, H ducreyi, and HSV-2 infections were tested using approximately 1000 paired (2 year interval) sera collected from a rural adult (15-54 years) population cohort in south west Uganda. RESULTS: Overall HIV-1 prevalence was 4.9%. Prevalence for T pallidum was 12.9% among males and 12.6% among females. The corresponding rates for H ducreyi were 9.8% and 7.3% respectively. HSV-2 prevalence rates were considerably lower in males (36.0%) than in females (71.5%), p < 0.001. Incidence rates for T pallidum per 1000 person years of observation were 8.4 for males and 12.3 for females. The corresponding rates for H ducreyi were 24.6 and 20.0 and for HSV-2 were 73.2 and 122.9 per 1000 person years of observation, respectively. The RR of HSV-2 incidence was 3.69 in HIV seropositive cases versus HIV seronegative after adjusting for age and sex. The corresponding RR for H ducreyi was 3.50 among female HIV positive cases versus negatives with no effect seen in males. Association between HIV-1 prevalence and prevalence of other STIs was significant (Mantel-Haenszel test) for H ducreyi (p = 0.01) and for HSV-2 (p = 0.004) but not for T pallidum (p > 0.4). HSV-2 prevalence was associated with number of lifetime sexual partners (females, p = 0.003; males, p = 0.08). CONCLUSIONS: The results have provided a reliable estimate of the magnitude of the STI problem and demonstrated an association between HIV-1 status and serology of other STIs in a general rural population in sub-Saharan Africa. The study has also highlighted a correlation between HSV-2 seropositivity and number of reported lifetime sexual partners.  (+info)

Genital ulcers: etiology, clinical diagnosis, and associated human immunodeficiency virus infection in Kingston, Jamaica. (7/171)

Individuals presenting consecutively with genital ulcers in Kingston, Jamaica, underwent serological testing for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, chlamydial infection, and syphilis. Ulcer material was analyzed by multiplex polymerase chain reaction (M-PCR) analysis. DNA from herpes simplex virus (HSV), Haemophilus ducreyi, and Treponema pallidum was detected in 158 (52.0%), 72 (23.7%), and 31 (10.2%) of 304 ulcer specimens. Of the 304 subjects, 67 (22%) were HIV-seropositive and 64 (21%) were T. pallidum-seroreactive. Granuloma inguinale was clinically diagnosed in nine (13.4%) of 67 ulcers negative by M-PCR analysis and in 12 (5.1%) of 237 ulcers positive by M-PCR analysis (P = .03). Lymphogranuloma venereum was clinically diagnosed in eight patients. Compared with M-PCR analysis, the sensitivity and specificity of a clinical diagnosis of syphilis, herpes, and chancroid were 67.7%, 53.8%, and 75% and 91.2%, 83.6%, and 75.4%, respectively. Reactive syphilis serology was 74% sensitive and 85% specific compared with M-PCR analysis. Reported contact with a prostitute in the preceding 3 months was associated with chancroid (P = .009), reactive syphilis serology (P = .011), and HIV infection (P = .007). The relatively poor accuracy of clinical and locally available laboratory diagnoses pleads for syndromic management of genital ulcers in Jamaica. Prevention efforts should be intensified.  (+info)

Immune cells are required for cutaneous ulceration in a swine model of chancroid. (8/171)

Cutaneous lesions of the human sexually transmitted genital ulcer disease chancroid are characterized by the presence of intraepidermal pustules, keratinocyte cytopathology, and epidermal and dermal erosion. These lesions are replete with neutrophils, macrophages, and CD4(+) T cells and contain very low numbers of cells of Haemophilus ducreyi, the bacterial agent of chancroid. We examined lesion formation by H. ducreyi in a pig model by using cyclophosphamide (CPA)-induced immune cell deficiency to distinguish between host and bacterial contributions to chancroid ulcer formation. Histologic presentation of H. ducreyi-induced lesions in CPA-treated pigs differed from ulcers that developed in immune-competent animals in that pustules did not form and surface epithelia remained intact. However, these lesions had significant suprabasal keratinocyte cytotoxicity. These results demonstrate that the host immune response was required for chancroid ulceration, while bacterial products were at least partially responsible for the keratinocyte cytopathology associated with chancroid lesions in the pig. The low numbers of H. ducreyi present in lesions in humans and immune-competent pigs have prevented localization of these organisms within skin. However, H. ducreyi organisms were readily visualized in lesion biopsies from infected CPA-treated pigs by immunoelectron microscopy. These bacteria were extracellular and associated with necrotic host cells in the epidermis and dermis. The relative abundance of H. ducreyi in inoculated CPA-treated pig skin suggests control of bacterial replication by host immune cells during natural human infection.  (+info)

... is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by a bacterium called Haemophilus Ducreyi. The disease is completely curable but causes ulcers, generally in the genital area.. Chancroid is mainly passed from person to person with genital contact, but can also be spread via oral intercourse, anal intercourse, and through areas of broken skin. In addition, the infection can be transmitted non-sexually when fluid from Chancroid ulcers are transferred from an infected person to another individual.. The disease is more common in men that in women, and as a result, Chancroid sores (usually referred to as soft chancres) often develop in the groin area with painful and swollen lymph glands.. History of Chancroid. It is understood that Chancroid had its origins from Africa, and it is quite a common disease in the Caribbean and Southwest Asia.

U08MM1072. Gonorrhoea, Chlamydia, Genital herpes are common sexually transmitted diseases that people are aware of, but are you among many to be coming across Chancroid for the first time?. Chancroid is a bacterial infection that can be spread through sexual contact. this bacteria is called Haemophilus Ducreyi and it is most common in Africa and southwest Asia. Chancroid can occur in both men and women and in 1 day to 2 weeks after becoming infected, a small bump appears on the genitals which becomes an ulcer within a day after it appears. For men, only 1 ulcer may appear in the foreskin, shaft of the penis, head of the penis or the scrotum. For women, 4 or more ulcers may appear in the outer lips of the vagina (Labia Majora), inner vagina lips and inner thighs.. Chancroid can cause urethral fistulas (a scar that develops in the urethra) and scars on the foreskin of the penis. People with Chancroid should be checked for other STDs like Syphillis, HIV or Genital Herpes. For people with HIV, ...
Dear Reader,. It seems youre ready to sharpen your chancroid (starts with a "sh" sound) knowledge! On to it then: Chancroid is a bacterial infection transmitted through contact with sores on an infected individuals skin. The bacteria, Haemophilus ducreyi, can lead to painful, open sores and swollen lymph nodes, usually in the groin area. Its relatively rare in the United States (including in infants and children), and appears to be more prevalent in some regions of Africa and the Caribbean. Its also more common in those assigned male at birth that those assigned female at birth (but those assigned female can be asymptomatic carriers). A proper diagnosis is key to appropriate treatment, as symptoms of chancroid can be confused with primary syphilis. But, fear not, because its treatable; antibiotics are typically used to speed up the healing process, but the sores may also clear up on their own. If left untreated though, chancroid can lead to skin damage. Keep reading for even more detailed ...

... is a type of sexually transmitted disease. Chancroid is a bacterial (Hemophilus ducreyi) infection with an incubation period of 3-14 days. The incubation period is the time between exposure to the infection (sexual event) and the development of symptoms associated with this infection. Common presentation includes one or more painful lumps, or swellings, to the groin area (usually on both sides). Females may also have a vaginal discharge and lower pelvic pain that is more severe during intercourse. Males and females may have multiple ragged ulcers to the penis or vulva.. Treatment is with orally administered antibiotics. Abscess formation (pockets of pus under the skin) is not uncommon, and incision and drainage of the abscess (by a physician) will be necessary in these cases. Regular application of warm wet compresses to the swollen inguinal area, in addition to treatment with antibiotics, can help eradicate this infection. Sexual intercourse should be avoided until the infection as ...
Tetracyclines and sulfonamides are no longer effective for the treatment of chancroid in many parts of the world. Rifampin and trimethoprim both possess in vitro activity against Haemophilus ducreyi, the causative agent of chancroid. In a randomized, controlled study, 22 patients with H. ducreyi-positive genital ulcers received 600 mg of rifampin once daily for three days, and 32 patients received 600 mg of rifampin plus 160 mg of trimethoprim once daily for three days. Both regimens rapidly eradicated H. ducreyi from ulcers, with subsequent healing of ulcers and buboes. Two relapses of ulcers and one therapeutic failure were observed in the rifampin-trimethoprim group, whereas no relapses or failures were noted in the rifampin group. In addition, all of 16 H. ducreyi-negative ulcers responded rapidly to treatment with either regimen. In an uncontrolled, open study, 22 H. ducreyi-positive ulcers were treated with a single dose of rifampin (600 mg) plus trimethoprim (160 mg). Ulcers and buboes ...

Rising STD rates have led to a situation where certain sexually transmitted infections are regarded as "an inevitable consequence of sexual activity"12 and current STD prevention programmes principally focus on the reduction of risk as a means of stemming the tide of these diseases. The promotion of "safe" or "safer" sex practices and, more recently, of non-coital sexual activity has resulted in a focus on risk reduction even in population groups where an emphasis on risk elimination might be appropriate.. A focus on condom use, as a means of risk reduction, has been the basis of most behavioural STD interventions for many years. The practical effectiveness of this strategy is, however, hindered by three important factors. Firstly, condoms provide limited protection against "SS" (skin to skin or skin to sore) transmission of STDs such as HPV, HSV, syphilis, or chancroid as these barrier devices do not cover all exposed areas and thus direct skin contact with pathogens throughout the external ...

Acne pustules and blackheads occur when oil blocks a hair follicle and forms a plug. Blackheads are open at the surface of the skin, causing the dirt and oil in the pore to oxidize and turn dark. Pustules are closed, hidden beneath the skin. They appear a
The best pimples to pop are small whiteheads, blackheads, and pustules (looks like a whitehead, but the skin around is red and inflamed). Whiteheads appear when dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria are trapped in your pores. Blackheads are similar in that they are caused by a clogged pore, but the fundamental difference is that with whiteheads, the pore remains closed as compared to blackheads in which the pore is open. Pustules are small bumps on the skin that contain pus or fluid. "The safest type to extract at home are the ones which have collected a small amount of pus or keratin in the middle and are very close to the surface of skin, and those that are not very red or deep: these are usually simple blackheads, whiteheads, or pustules," says Dr. Nazarian. Its also important to note that you should never touch deep cysts. "While it may be very tempting to pop deep cysts, these should ideally be reserved to professionals as they can be difficult to treat due to the depth of the active lesion," ...
Foliculita este o afectiune a foliculilor pilosi produsa de Stafilococul Auriu, care colonizeaza in mod normal pielea la indivizii sanatosi, sau de fungi, in cazul persoanelor cu un sistem imun deficitar (bolnavi de SIDA, neoplasme, leucemii etc.). Agresiunile asupra foliculilor pilosi, generate de contactul strans cu imbracamintea, de barbierit si nu numai, sunt factorii favorizanti, reprezentand o poarta de intrare a agentilor infectiosi. O data ce se produc leziunile foliculilor pilosi riscul ca acestia sa se infecteze este foarte mare. Foliculita debuteaza cu aparitia unei zone rosiatice dispusa in jurul unuia sau a mai multor fire de par invecinate, insotita de durere, usturime sau mancarime (prurit). Ulterior se vor forma pustule cu un continut purulent sau sanguinolent.

To better understand the biology of H. ducreyi, we developed a human inoculation model. In the present article, we describe clinical outcomes for 267 volunteers who were infected with H. ducreyi. There was a relationship between papule formation and estimated delivered dose. The outcome (either pustule formation or resolution) of infected sites for a given subject was not independent; the most important determinants of pustule formation were sex and host effects. When 41 subjects were infected a second time, their outcomes segregated toward their initial outcome, confirming the host effect. Subjects with pustules developed local ...
Haemophilus ducreyi is a fastidious gram-negative coccobacillus bacteria, which causes the sexually transmitted disease chancroid, a major cause of genital ulceration in developing countries characterized by painful sores on the genitalia. Chancroid starts as an erythematous papular lesion that breaks down into a painful bleeding ulcer with a necrotic base and ragged edge. H. ducreyi can be cultured on chocolate agar. It is best treated with a macrolide like azithromycin and a third-generation cephalosporin like ceftriaxone. H. ducreyi gram stain appears as "school of fish." H. ducreyi is an opportunistic microorganism that infects its host by way of breaks in the skin or epidermis. Inflammation then takes place as the area of infection is inundated with lymphocytes, macrophages, and granulocytes. This pyrogenic inflammation causes regional lymphadenitis in the sexually transmitted bacillus chancroid. Although antigen detection, serology, and genetic amplification methods are sometimes used to ...

N2 - Haemophilus ducreyi causes chancroid, a genital ulcer disease that facilitates the transmission of human immunodeficiency virus type 1. In humans, H. ducreyi is surrounded by phagocytes and must adapt to a hostile environment to survive. To sense and respond to environmental cues, bacteria frequently use two-component signal transduction (2CST) systems. The only obvious 2CST system in H. ducreyi is CpxRA; CpxR is a response regulator, and CpxA is a sensor kinase. Previous studies by Hansen and coworkers showed that CpxR directly represses the expression of dsrA, the lspB-lspA2 operon, and the flp operon, which are required for virulence in humans. They further showed ...

N2 - A transposon insertion mutant of Haemophilus ducreyi 35000 possessing a truncated lipooligosaccharide (LOS) failed to hind the LOS-specific monoclonal antibody 3E6 (M. K. Stevens, L. D. Cope, J. D. Radolf and E. J. Hansen, Infect. Immun. 63:2976-2982, 1995). This transposon was found to have inserted into the first of two tandem genes and also caused a deletion of chromosomal DNA upstream of this gene. These two genes, designated lbgA and lbgB, encoded predicted proteins with molecular masses of 25,788 and 40,236 Da which showed homology with proteins which function in lipopolysaccharide biosynthetic in other gram-negative bacteria. The tandem arrangement of the lbgA and lbgB genes was found ...

To investigate if temperature affects the interaction of Haemophilus ducreyi with human epithelial cells, nine strains were used to evaluate the adhesion kinetics of the organism at 33°C and 37°C. The effect of the free toxin on the epithelial cells at those temperatures was also assessed. The cyto-adherence kinetics of H. ducreyi to the epithelial cells was significantly greater at 33°C (10 times more) than at 37°C in all seven clinical isolates tested. There was a significant difference in cell-associated H. ducreyi at 33°C as compared with 37°C. Control strains showed similar adhesion properties at both temperatures. However, the virulent strain CIP542 adhered in larger amounts than the avirulent strain A77. Electron microscopy revealed that there was more tissue necrosis at the lower than the higher temperature. The effect of the free toxin was the same at each temperature. However, strain A77 had significantly lower toxicity than strain CIP542 and the clinical isolates. These results suggest
Summary Routine procedures used to isolate Haemophilus ducreyi in a busy laboratory are reported. Identification was based on colony morphology and nutritional and biochemical properties of 120 fresh isolates of H. ducreyi. These isolates grew very well on Gonococcal Agar and Mueller-Hinton Agar incubated at 34°C in candle extinction jars containing moistened filter paper. Colonies varied in size, giving a polymorphic appearance. They were smooth, dome-shaped, and buff-yellow to grey in colour, and measured 2 mm in diameter. They could be pushed intact across the agar surface. By microscopic examination of gram-stained smears the isolates were gram-negative coccobacilli arranged in short chains, clumps or whorls and occasionally in typical

Lectin s initial product, NutraLec , is a clinically tested functional nutraceutical containing a lectin which neutralizes Helicobacter pylori, the pathogen residing in the stomach which is principally responsible for gastritis, ulcer disease, and stomach cancer. A more potent form of this product, PhytoCAM Ulcer, is being developed as a prescription drug. Much of Lectin s focus is on the development of products for other gastrointestinal diseases and the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs): NutraLec II, also a functional nutraceutical containing lectins, would neutralize pathogens responsible for soldier diarrhea, thereby providing warfighters with improved gastrointestinal health while in the field; PhytoCAM HIV, PhytoCAM VM (vaginal microbicides), and PhytoCAM Condom utilize single or multiple lectins targeted at HIV/AIDS, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. The company has also identified lectins for protection against genital herpes, syphilis, and chancroid. A particular benefit of the

The review of studies performed in Bobo-Dioulasso over the past decade suggested a substantial change in STI ecology and epidemiology. In women, the prevalence of ulcerative STI such as chancroid and syphilis have become extremely rare in low and high risk groups. The prevalence of NG and, to a lesser extent, that of TV and CT followed a similar decline. Furthermore, the role of CT and NG in the aetiology of VDS and urethral discharge in men also markedly declined, suggesting a global and sharp decrease of CT and NG load in the community.. Beside these classic STIs, the prevalence of other genital infections, such as BV and CA, tended also to decline in the general population but not among CSW.. Similarly, HIV prevalence and probably HIV incidence curved down in both high risk groups and the general population over the same period of observation.. There is no doubt that the interpretation of these ecological trends has a few limitations. Firstly, the studies selected for this work were not ...
Ben Goldacre, The Guardian, Saturday 23 October 2010. This month it was revealed that US academics funded by NIH deliberately infected mentally incapacitated patients, prison inmates, sex workers, and soldiers from Guatemala with syphilis, gonorrhea, and chancroid during the 1940s.There has been outrage, and rightly so. Since the 1940s, regulations on consent have been tightened up.. But its interesting to look at who participates in medical trials today, and whether we would regard them as giving fully informed consent, without coercion.. Recruiting patients into clinical trials is generally difficult, and often a majority of those who are eligible decide not to participate. This is, in some respects, a systemic problem, as we have been very poor at embedding the idea of routinely resolving uncertainties about which treatments are best into the everyday practice of medicine.. My point is not that these studies are dangerous, because they are not. But in the US, where many are still unable to ...

CDT was originally identified by Johnson and Lior (26, 28,29), in studies of enteric pathogens, as the soluble factor in bacterial culture supernatant fluids which caused the appearance of giant elongated Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells after prolonged incubation. Subsequent studies from their and other laboratories revealed that CDT is a novel toxic activity released by some E. coli strains (26, 51, 62) and Shigellaisolates (27, 42) and by many Campylobacterspecies (28, 40, 52). It has now been shown that CDT causes elongation followed by progressive cellular distention and cytotoxicity with certain mammalian cell lines (i.e., CHO, HeLa, HEp-2, and Vero) in vitro (29). Moreover, recent studies using HeLa cells have shown that E. coli CDT blocks the cell cycle at the G2/M transition, apparently by preventing Cdc2 protein kinase dephosphorylation and activation (12, 50, 75). In addition, E. coli CDT affects F-actin assembly by CHO cells in culture (4).. To date, the cdtABC gene clusters from a ...

Objectives. The proposed project is a randomised placebo-controlled, double-blinded, multicentric therapeutic trial evaluating the association of antiherpetic treatment to the syndromic treatment for the management genital ulcers in Africa, and its impact on the genital shedding of HIV and of Herpes simplex hominis type 2 (HSV-2) virus.. Background. Recent epidemiological studies have shown that infection with HSV-2 is highly prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa, and that HSV-2 seropositivity is a marker of high-risk sexual behaviour. HSV-2 infection is increasingly being recognised as one of the commonest causes of genital ulceration in many African countries. HSV-2 infection may act as a major cofactor for HIV transmission, a fact that has long been underestimated. First, genital ulcers (caused by HSV-2) are by themselves cofactors of HIV transmission, either by increasing infectiousness of dually infected individuals (HSV+/HIV+), or by increasing susceptibility of the seronegative partner. Second, ...

Week 1 started fairly slowly, which gave me a chance to read up on several papers about research already carried on PcaK and the AAHS family. I began by culturing E. Coli which had been transformed with a plasmid containing the PcaK gene of the extremophile Haemophilus ducreyi, and then induced these via addition of arabinose (to turn on T7 RNA polymerase expression) and IPTG (to turn on protein expression). Unfortunately, the cells started to die on induction of protein expression - a possible explanation for this being that the protein is toxic to E. coli growth. This may lead to a low final concentration once purified, as its possible that the cells that survived were those that were not expressing the protein! I proceeded to harvest the cells via centrifugation and then resuspend the pellets in PBS buffer and TCEP (reduces disulphide bonds). Next I got to use a cell disrupter to lyse the cells and, after an inital centrifugation to remove debris and unlysed cells, I pelleted the membranes ...

The Pasteurellaceae comprise a large family of Gram-negative bacteria. Most members live as commensals on mucosal surfaces of birds and mammals, especially in the upper respiratory tract. Pasteurellaceae are typically rod-shaped, and are a notable group of facultative anaerobes. Their biochemical characteristics can be distinguished from the related Enterobacteriaceae by the presence of oxidase, and from most other similar bacteria by the absence of flagella. Bacteria in the family Pasteurellaceae have been classified into a number of genera based on metabolic properties, but these classifications are not generally accurate reflections of the evolutionary relationships between different species. Haemophilus influenzae was the first organism to have its genome sequenced and has been studied intensively by genetic and molecular methodologies. The Haemophilus genus is a notorious human pathogen associated with bacteremia, pneumonia, meningitis and chancroid. Other pathogenic members belonging to ...
