Previously only found in humans, Influenza B virus has been isolated from seals which may constitute the animal reservoir from which humans are exposed.

Clinical features and the role of atypical pathogens in nursing and healthcare-associated pneumonia (NHCAP): differences between a teaching university hospital and a community hospital. (1/8)

OBJECTIVE: The Japan Respiratory Society documented a new category of guidelines for nursing and healthcare-associated pneumonia (NHCAP), which is distinct from community acquired pneumonia (CAP). The objective of this study was to determine the epidemiological differences between NHCAP patients in a teaching university hospital and a community hospital. In addition, to clarify the strategy for treatment of NHCAP, we investigated the role of atypical pathogens. METHODS: We analyzed 250 NHCAP and 421 CAP cases in a university hospital and 349 NHCAP and 374 CAP cases in a community hospital. RESULTS: Patient age and the incidences of poor general condition were significantly higher in the community hospital compared with those in the university hospital. The distribution and frequency of pathogens, especially multidrug-resistant (MDR) pathogens, were significantly different between the two hospitals. Central nervous system disorders, dementia and poor performance status, which was possibility related to aspiration pneumonia, were significantly more frequent in patients with NHCAP compared with those with CAP in both hospitals. Atypical pathogens were detected in a few cases in patients with NHCAP. CONCLUSION: There were many differences in the clinical characteristics between NHCAP patients in a university hospital and a community hospital even for hospitals located in the same area. Aspiration pneumonia was thought to be the main characteristic of NHCAP in both hospitals. Thus, all NHCAP patients did not need the same empiric therapy with a multidrug regimen directed against MDR pathogens. In addition, physicians rarely need to consider atypical pathogens in NHCAP treatment.  (+info)

Chlamydia trachomatis infections: screening, diagnosis, and management. (5/8)

Chlamydia trachomatis is a gram-negative bacterium that infects the columnar epithelium of the cervix, urethra, and rectum, as well as nongenital sites such as the lungs and eyes. The bacterium is the cause of the most frequently reported sexually transmitted disease in the United States, which is responsible for more than 1 million infections annually. Most persons with this infection are asymptomatic. Untreated infection can result in serious complications such as pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and ectopic pregnancy in women, and epididymitis and orchitis in men. Men and women can experience chlamydia-induced reactive arthritis. Treatment of uncomplicated cases should include azithromycin or doxycycline. Screening is recommended in all women younger than 25 years, in all pregnant women, and in women who are at increased risk of infection. Screening is not currently recommended in men. In neonates and infants, the bacterium can cause conjunctivitis and pneumonia. Adults may also experience conjunctivitis caused by chlamydia. Trachoma is a recurrent ocular infection caused by chlamydia and is endemic in the developing world.  (+info)

This drug sounds wonderful. I will never forget my worst bone marrow ever. I was in a teaching university hospital and naive at the time. The hemotologist was not there but his student was. I didnt know he was still a student. He told me we could proceed and he proceeded to make SEVEN attempts. The last attempt he finally got it and with it a large piece of bone. I was in agony and seeping fluid for a few days. I was told you could not be sedated for the procedure. When my son was diagnosed with leukemia I insisted he be given the twilight for his first aspiration. The following ones he was awake and I felt so badly for him. His last one I fought again and they sedated him. I could never understand why anyone should be wide awake. I made a vow to self never to have another unless I was given something. Where my son was treated they gave an ABC cocktail; ativan, bednadryl and compazine. It never worked for him and finally I won a campaign to have him given zofran. It was the first time his ...

Actually, your protein level is due to a traumatic tap, as evidenced by the reddish appearance of the fluid sample. Blood in the CSF will artificially raise the protein level and also distort other values as well. A clean tap is necessary before trying to determine any clinical significance of the values and the actual white count fractionation would be the determining factor for whether meningitis is present. Early meningitis does not always show up in CSF values. Again, your lab values are somewhat worthless because its a traumatic tap and will affect the values seeking to be determined. If you had this performed at a teaching university, then get the needle out of the hands of the students or residents and into the hands of the attending. Best regards, J Cottle, ...

Chlamydia trachomatis serovars D-K are the leading cause of bacterially-acquired sexually transmitted infections in the United States. As an obligate intracellular pathogen, C. trachomatis infects columnar epithelial cells of the genital mucosae and can cause deleterious sequelae such as pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and ectopic pregnancy. Several chlamydial antigens reach the host cell cytosol prior to the natural release of chlamydiae at the end of the developmental cycle. While some of these extra-inclusion antigens traffic to the host cell surface, others remain intracellular where they are proposed to influence vital host cell functions and antigen trafficking and presentation. The research herein examines the escape and trafficking of the immunodominant chlamydial antigens MOMP, LPS, and cHsp60 within C. trachomatis serovar E-infected polarized human endometrial epithelial cells. Studies using high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and immuno-TEM report the novel escape
c The Associated Press. SAN ANTONIO (March 3, 2001) - Asthma sufferers appear to be unusually prone to heart disease, a study found, offering new clues about the hazards of lingering inflammation.. Other research has linked asthma with heart trouble, but those studies did not clearly distinguish the effect of smoking, which contributes to both asthma and cardiovascular disease.. In the new study, doctors from the Kaiser Permanente health plan found that even nonsmokers have a clearly elevated risk of heart disease. It appears to be at least one-third higher than the risk in people without asthma.. The reason for this is unclear. The researchers speculate that asthmatics chronic lung inflammation might damage their arteries over time. However, they said it is also possible that medicines used to treat asthma have ill effects on the heart.. ``This is a beginning, said Dr. Carlos Iribarren, the lead author. ``Its a provocative finding that we need to understand.. Iribarren presented the ...
Research into community acquired pneumonia over the past two decades has focused on developing tools to measure the severity of illness and which antibiotics to choose. Several tools can now help clinicians identify patients with severe community acquired pneumonia in clinical settings.1 In people with severe disease, international guidelines recommend early treatment with broad spectrum antibiotics, which provide cover for atypical pathogens.2 It is less clear how best to manage patients during their stay in hospital. In this weeks BMJ, a randomised trial by Oosterheert and colleagues reports the effect of switching from intravenous to oral antibiotics after three days rather than seven days in people with severe community acquired pneumonia.3 Until now, the lack of quality trial data in areas such as route of antibiotic administration, duration of treatment, and assessment of clinical stability has led to a conservative approach to … ...

Pneumonia is an infection in one or both lungs. Its caused by germs, such as bacteria and viruses, and fungi. Some people develop pneumonia by coming in contact with germs in the course of daily life, such as at school, work, or the gym. This is sometimes called community-acquired pneumonia. Others develop pneumonia during a stay in the hospital. This is called hospital-acquired pneumonia. And still others develop pneumonia following some type of contact with the health care system.

BACKGROUND: Since healthcare-associated pneumonia (HCAP) is heterogeneous, clinical characteristics and outcomes are different from region to region. There can also be differences between HCAP patients hospitalized in secondary or tertiary hospitals. This study aimed to evaluate the clinical characteristics of HCAP patients admitted into secondary community hospitals. METHODS: This was a retrospective study conducted in patients with HCAP or community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) hospitalized in two secondary hospitals between March 2009 and January 2011. RESULTS: Of a total of 303 patients, 96 (31.7%) had HCAP. 42 patients (43.7%) resided in a nursing home or long-term care facility, 36 (37.5%) were hospitalized in an acute care hospital for , 2 days within 90 days, ten received outpatient intravenous therapy, and eight attended a hospital clinic or dialysis center. HCAP patients were older. The rates of patients with CURB65 scores of 3 or more (22.9% vs. 9.1%; p = 0.001) and PSI class IV or more ...
Q: Is it appropriate to assign code Y95, nosocomial condition, based on the documentation of healthcare-associated pneumonia (HCAP) or hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAC)? It is appropriate to assign code Y95, nosocomial condition, for documented healthcare associated conditions. Should this still be queried for specificity, and should the HAC condition (i.e. pneumonia) be coded as bacterial, viral, or something else?
ASHM has joined the call by leading Human T-Lymphotrophic Virus 1 (HTLV-1) researchers, clinicians and patients to take action on HTLV-1 by signing an open letter to the WHO, published in an abbreviated form in The Lancet. The letter calls on the WHO to support the promotion of proven, effective transmission prevention strategies for HTLV-1, in much the same way it already does for HIV, HBV and HCV.. ASHM established a HTLV-1 working group in 2016, to bring together researches, clinicians and community representatives at an annual round table to raise awareness of HTLV-1 and share the latest information. Up to 40% of the population of some Central Australian communities are positive for HTLV-1, which can cause cancer, neurological problems and immune disorders, including chronic lung inflammation leading to bronchiectasis.. Specifically for Australia, we have all of the key components required for an effective response to this virus - indigenous clinical leadership; the medical research skills ...
Delafloxacin is a fourth generation fluoroquinolone with expanded activity against gram-positive bacteria as well as atypical pathogens. Delafloxacin has been linked to mild ALT elevations during therapy, but has yet to be linked to instances of idiosyncratic acute liver injury with symptoms and jaundice as have been described with other fluoroquinolones.
By virtue of its direct contact with the environment, the lung is constantly challenged by infectious and non-infectious stimuli that necessitate a robust yet highly controlled host response coordinated by the innate and adaptive arms of the immune system. Mammalian Toll-like receptors (TLRs) function as crucial sentinels of microbial and non-infectious antigens throughout the respiratory tract and mediate host innate immunity. Selective induction of inflammatory responses to harmful environmental exposures and tolerance to innocuous antigens are required to maintain tissue homeostasis and integrity. Conversely, dysregulated innate immune responses manifest as sustained and self-perpetuating tissue damage rather than controlled tissue repair. In this article we review aspects of Toll-like receptor function that are relevant to the development of acute lung injury and chronic obstructive lung diseases as well as resistance to frequently associated microbial infections.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Indianapolis-based health care company, Anthem, is teaming up with the University of California Irvine and tech giant Apple on a new study geared toward understanding factors that may be associated with asthma. The research will focus on how technologies, such as the Apple watch and iPhone, may help those who are suffering manage their condition. More than 25 million people in the United States have asthma and-if not controlled-it can lead to chronic lung inflammation and premature death. News 8 spoke with Dr. Warris Bokhari, vice president of digital care delivery at Anthem about the study, which is slated to launch this fall.

From its beginnings in the mid 1980s, 3-D printing has evolved from simple rapid prototype manufacturing, to now include advanced fabrication applications within construction, medical, electronics, and consumer product industries. Furthermore, this technique is now widely used for automotive and aviation parts fabrication; Local Motors™ is now taking pre-orders on complete 3-D printed cars that will soon reach the consumer market. The cost of 3-D printers has been declining steadily, which will significantly impact the future of manufacturing within virtually all industrial sectors.. One of the latest areas to be explored by this technology is bioprinting. Sounding like a page out of a science fiction novel, 3-D printing techniques have been used to generate prosthetic limbs, titanium bone implants, blood vessels, and even a complete jawbone. Chinese researchers have recently reported the successful 3-D printing of human organs using living tissue. In fact, it has been predicted that fully ...
