Containment of Biohazards: Provision of physical and biological barriers to the dissemination of potentially hazardous biologically active agents (bacteria, viruses, recombinant DNA, etc.). Physical containment involves the use of special equipment, facilities, and procedures to prevent the escape of the agent. Biological containment includes use of immune personnel and the selection of agents and hosts that will minimize the risk should the agent escape the containment facility.Laboratory Infection: Accidentally acquired infection in laboratory workers.Cost Control: The containment, regulation, or restraint of costs. Costs are said to be contained when the value of resources committed to an activity is not considered excessive.

Usually the infection is limited to the gastrointestinal tract and nasopharynx, and is often asymptomatic. The central nervous system, primarily the spinal cord, may be affected, leading to rapidly progressive paralysis, coarse FASCICULATION and hyporeflexia. Motor neurons are primarily affected. Encephalitis may also occur. The virus replicates in the nervous system, and may cause significant neuronal loss, most notably in the spinal cord. A rare related condition, nonpoliovirus poliomyelitis, may result from infections with nonpoliovirus enteroviruses. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp764-5)Security Measures: Regulations to assure protection of property and equipment.Chlamydiales: An order of obligately intracellular, gram-negative bacteria that have the chlamydia-like developmental cycle of replication. This is a two-stage cycle that includes a metabolically inactive infectious form, and a vegetative form that replicates by binary fission.

Air evacuation under high-level biosafety containment: the aeromedical isolation team. (1/121)

Military contingency operations in tropical environments and potential use of biological weapons by adversaries may place troops at risk for potentially lethal contagious infections (e.g., viral hemorrhagic fevers, plague, and zoonotic poxvirus infections). Diagnosis and treatment of such infections would be expedited by evacuating a limited number of patients to a facility with containment laboratories. To safely evacuate such patients by military aircraft and minimize the risk for transmission to air crews, caregivers, and civilians, the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases maintains an aeromedical isolation team. This rapid response team, which has worldwide airlift capability designed to evacuate and manage patients under high-level containment, also offers a portable containment laboratory, limited environmental decontamination, and specialized consultative expertise. This article also examines technical aspects of the team's equipment, training, capabilities, and deployments.  (+info)

Bacterial toxin-antitoxin gene system as containment control in yeast cells. (2/121)

The potential of a bacterial toxin-antitoxin gene system for use in containment control in eukaryotes was explored. The Escherichia coli relE and relB genes were expressed in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Expression of the relE gene was highly toxic to yeast cells. However, expression of the relB gene counteracted the effect of relE to some extent, suggesting that toxin-antitoxin interaction also occurs in S. cerevisiae. Thus, bacterial toxin-antitoxin gene systems also have potential applications in the control of cell proliferation in eukaryotic cells, especially in those industrial fermentation processes in which the escape of genetically modified cells would be considered highly risky.  (+info)

Dual system to reinforce biological containment of recombinant bacteria designed for rhizoremediation. (3/121)

Active biological containment (ABC) systems have been designed to control at will the survival or death of a bacterial population. These systems are based on the use of a killing gene, e.g., a porin-inducing protein such as the one encoded by the Escherichia coli gef gene, and a regulatory circuit that controls expression of the killing gene in response to the presence or absence of environmental signals. An ABC system for recombinant microorganisms that degrade a model pollutant was designed on the basis of the Pseudomonas putida TOL plasmid meta-cleavage regulatory circuit. The system consists of a fusion of the Pm promoter to lacI, whose expression is controlled by XylS with 3-methylbenzoate, and a fusion of a synthetic P(lac) promoter to gef. In the presence of the model pollutant, bacterial cells survived and degraded the target compound, whereas in the absence of the aromatic carboxylic acid cell death was induced. The system had two main drawbacks: (i) the slow death of the bacterial cells in soil versus the fast killing rate in liquid cultures in laboratory assays, and (ii) the appearance of mutants, at a rate of about 10(-8) per cell and generation, that did not die after the pollutant had been exhausted. We reinforced the ABC system by including it in a Deltaasd P. putida background. A P. putida Deltaasd mutant is viable only in complex medium supplemented with diaminopimelic acid, methionine, lysine, and threonine. We constructed a P. putida Deltaasd strain, called MCR7, with a Pm::asd fusion in the host chromosome. This strain was viable in the presence of 3-methylbenzoate because synthesis of the essential metabolites was achieved through XylS-dependent induction. In the P. putida MCR7 strain, an ABC system (Pm::lacI, xylS, P(lac)::gef) was incorporated into the host chromosome to yield strain MCR8. The number of MCR8 mutants that escaped killing was below our detection limit (<10(-9) mutants per cell and generation). The MCR8 strain survived and colonized rhizosphere soil with 3-methylbenzoate at a level similar to that of the wild-type strain. However, it disappeared in less than 20 to 25 days in soils without the pollutant, whereas an asd(+), biologically contained counterpart such as P. putida CMC4 was still detectable in soils after 100 days.  (+info)

Sequence analysis of cloned cDNA encoding part of an immunoglobulin heavy chain. (4/121)

The recombinant plasmid pH21-1 consists of mouse-derived complementary DNA (cDNA) in the E. coli plasmid pMB9. The mouse insertion has been completely sequenced, and encodes the CH3 domain and half the CH2 domain of the immunoglobulin gamma1 heavy chain. The predicted amino acid sequence differs at several positions from that previously published for this protein. The pattern of codon usage resembles that in some other eukaryotic messenger RNAs. A computer program has been used to predict the optimum secondary structure for the mRNA encoding the CH3 domain and the inter-domain junction.  (+info)

Countering the posteradication threat of smallpox and polio. (5/121)

After eradication, there is a small but finite risk that smallpox and/or poliomyelitis viruses could accidentally escape from a laboratory or be released intentionally. The reintroduction of either virus into a highly susceptible population could develop into a serious catastrophe. To counter such an occurrence will require the use of vaccine, perhaps in substantial quantities. In the United States, new stocks of smallpox vaccine are being procured and arrangements are being made for a standby production facility. Similar provisions need to be considered for polio. To counter an epidemic of polio will require the use of the oral vaccine, which is presently the World Health Organization-recommended vaccine of choice for countries throughout the developing world. In these countries, its continued use is advised because of its ability to induce intestinal immunity, its ability to spread to other susceptible household members and to protect them, its ease of administration, and its low cost.  (+info)

National laboratory inventory as part of global poliovirus containment--United States, June 2002. (6/121)

Since the initiation of the global poliomyelitis initiative in 1988 through 2001, the number of countries where polio is endemic decreased from 125 to 10, and the number of reported polio cases decreased >99%, from an estimated 350,000 to <1,000. The Global Commission for the Certification of the Eradication of Poliomyelitis, convened by the World Health Organization, will declare the world polio-free when all regions have documented the absence of wild poliovirus transmission for at least 3 consecutive years and when laboratories with wild poliovirus materials have implemented appropriate containment conditions.  (+info)

Infection of mice with aerosolized Mycobacterium tuberculosis: use of a nose-only apparatus for delivery of low doses of inocula and design of an ultrasafe facility. (7/121)

Aerosolized delivery of virulent or hypervirulent Mycobacterium tuberculosis requires careful consideration of methodology and safety. To maximize safety, we installed a nose-only aerosol apparatus that can reproducibly deliver a low dose (<100 CFU per mouse) of M. tuberculosis in a carefully designed biohazard facility.  (+info)

Measuring containment of viable infectious cell sorting in high-velocity cell sorters. (8/121)

BACKGROUND: With the advent of high-speed sorters, aerosols are a considerable safety concern when sorting viable infectious materials. We describe a four-part safety procedure for validating the containment. METHODS: This procedure includes aerosol containment, physical barriers, environmental controls, and personal protection. The Aerosol Management System (AMS) produces a negative pressure within the sort chamber, where aerosols are forced through a HEPA filter. Physical barriers include the manufacturer's standard plastic shield and panels. The flow cytometer was contained within a BSL-3 laboratory for maximum environmental control, and the operator was protected by a respiratory system. Containment was measured by using highly fluorescent Glo-Germ particles under the same conditions as the cell sort. RESULTS: Escaping aerosols were vacuumed for 10 min onto a glass slide and examined. With the AMS active and the cytometer producing the maximum aerosols possible, Glo-Germ particles remained within the sort chamber. Measurements taken directly outside the door averaged fewer than one particle per slide, and those taken at 2 ft away and on top of the sorter were completely negative. CONCLUSIONS: With this monitoring system in place, aerosols can be efficiently measured, thus reducing the risk to the operator while sorting viable infectious cells.  (+info)

Unaffordable healthcare. Unsustainable fuels and industrial chemicals. Environmental pollution. Lack of sufficient food supplies for a rapidly growing population.. There is one thing each of these pressing, real-world problems has in common: their potential solution.. Synthetic biology, a novel branch of science that enables the design and construction of biological parts, devices, and systems as well as the redesign of natural biological systems, is beginning to emerge with innovative solutions to these global challenges. But technology has always raised concerns about safety, including at the dawn of the biotech revolution when numerous naysayers raised fears of dire consequences that never materialized.. Synthetic biology is not proving immune to this common challenge.

In contrast to Risk Groups, Biosafety Levels (BSL) prescribe procedures and levels of containment for the particular microorganism or material (including Research Involving Recombinant or Synthetic Nucleic Acid Molecules). Similar to Risk Groups, BSL are graded from 1 - 4. Detailed descriptions of containment practices and biosafety levels can be found in the CDC-NIH Guidelines Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories.. The majority of work at UVA involves Biosafety Level 2 (BSL-2) practices. BSL-2 containment and practice is suitable for work with agents that are infectious to humans or animals where exposure may result in limited to moderate disease. The routes of exposure to these agents are typically through cuts and breaks in the skin, ingestion, and splashes to the mucous membranes (eyes, nose, and mouth). These agents or materials include:. ...

A pump housing that contains a pump that draws fuel from an underground storage tank containing fuel to deliver to fuel dispensers in a service station environment. The pump is coupled to a double-walled fuel pipe that carries the fuel from the pump to the fuel dispensers. The double-walled fuel piping contains an inner annular space that carries the fuel and an outer annular space that captures any leaked fuel from the inner annular space. The outer annular space is maintained through the fuel piping from the pump to the fuel dispensers so that the outer annular space can be pressurized by a pump to determine if a leak exists in the outer annular space or so that fuel leaked from the inner annular space can be captured by a leak containment chamber in the pump housing.
ST. PETERSBURG, FL (MARCH 16, 2017) - During routine cleaning of a bleach tank at the Northwest Water Reclamation Plant, 7500 26th Ave. N., on Wednesday, March 15, a leak was noted in the containment system. Approximately 30 gallons of diluted bleach leaked from the containment system onto the surrounding asphalt and evaporated, about three gallons went into a storm drain. A sodium sulfite tablet was added to the storm drain to neutralize the chlorine as a precaution. The leak occurred at 8:30 a.m. and ceased at 9 a.m. There was no discharge to surface waters.

A medical cost containment system for ensuring that the anticipated cost savings from utilization review (UR) agreements are actually realized. The UR agreements are essentially contractual agreements that specify the type and quantity of medical treatments relating to a specific claim resulting from a specific injury. Each UR agreement comprises a claim number, a procedure code describing the particular medical service authorized, and some indication as to dates or quantity of service authorized. All of the UR agreements are stored in a UR database. When a medical bill is received by the insurance company, the bill is entered in to the computer. The cost containment system searches all UR agreements in the UR database which have the same claim number as the claim number on the bill. For each item in the medical bill, the system finds the UR agreement which most closely matches the procedure code in the line item and various other criteria, such as the dates of treatment. The system then checks to

Previously known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever because of the internal and external bleeding that can occur, the illness has an incubation period between exposure and the onset of clinical illness that ranges from 2-21 days. Humans are not infectious until they develop symptoms which typically mimic a flu-like illness with the sudden onset of fever, fatigue, muscle pain, headache and sore throat. This is followed by vomiting, diarrhea, rash, impaired kidney and liver function, and in some cases bleeding. Leukopenia (low white blood cell counts), thrombocytopenia (low platelet counts), and elevated liver enzymes can be seen. A definitive diagnosis can be made using specialized testing of blood samples (e.g. ELISA, RT-PCR, electron microscopy or cell culture) under maximum biological containment conditions ...
Research with highly pathogenic infectious agents is limited to the very few laboratories worldwide with the required biosafety levels (level 4), none of which are found in Spain. "Greater investment in such facilities is required in order to be able to adequately respond to threats that will almost certainly appear in the future", noted Rafael Delgado, a microbiologist from the Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre Research Institute, during his presentation as part of the scientific seminar organised today by the Biomedical Research Institute (IBI) in the framework of the BIOCAPS project.. Experts in various infectious diseases met today in the AFundación building in Vigo to discuss the latest progress related to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and development of vaccines against infectious diseases, with a special emphasis on recent events.. This is the case of Ebola, for example, the virus for which was responsible for the latest pandemic risk only a few months previously. With regard ...
Four Biosafety Levels (BSLs) are described which consist of combinations of laboratory practices and techniques, safety equipment, and laboratory facilities. Each combination is specifically appropriate for the operations performed, the documented or suspected routes of transmission of the infectious agents, and for the laboratory function or activity.. The recommended biosafety level(s) for the organisms in Section VII (Agent Summary Statements) represent those conditions under which the agent can ordinarily be safely handled. The laboratory director is specifically and primarily responsible for assessing risks and for appropriately applying the recommended Biosafety Levels. Generally, work with known agents should be conducted at the biosafety level recommended in Section VII. When specific information is available to suggest that virulence, pathogenicity, antibiotic resistance patterns, vaccine and treatment availability, or other factors are significantly altered, more (or less) stringent ...

Computational or mathematical modeling work is perhaps not the most glamorous of scientific jobs, and is certainly not the most visible. Whenever emerging diseases, epidemics and other events associated with public health are concerned in real life, people tend to think in terms of direct action - physicians and laboratory personnel for diagnosis and treatment, public health officials for strategy decisions related to prevention and interventions, and even lawmakers for official promulgation of policy and provision of funding for relevant activities. However, a nations state of preparedness for potential public health disasters, such as an infectious disease outbreak, depends on a lot more - much of which is required to be done in the background, without fanfare.. This is where bioinformaticians and computational scientists come in; their role is to: (a) aggregate knowledge from various fields, such as medicine, microbiology, and immunology; (b) collect and gather data from epidemiological and ...

The stratigraphic survey which was conducted in October 2015 identified a particular area of interest and identified a number of sub surface anomalies that were considered worthy of further investigation. These were further investigated by a test excavation in November/December 2016 and in January/February 2017. Test trenches were dug revealing two large structures. One structure appears to be a large sewage containment system or septic tank that had been decommissioned and filled with rubble and debris and then covered with top soil. The second structure is a long structure which is divided into 20 chambers. The Commission has not yet determined what the purpose of this structure was but it appears to be related to the treatment/containment of sewage and/or waste water. The Commission has also not yet determined if it was ever used for this purpose. ...

When an investigator applies to an agency for funds to support work on recombinant DNA molecules, the statement certifying the physical containment rating would be appended to the grant proposal. The group reviewing the research proposal would determine whether the certified level of physical containment was adequate for the real or potential biohazard associated with the proposed experiments. Entering into the assessment of adequacy would be the type of DNA to be cloned, the scale of the proposed bacterial cultures to be used and most importantly the adequacy of the biologic barriers to be employed. If the reviewing group concludes that the experimental design and physical containment rating is commensurate with their and the investigators estimate of the risk, the grant would be processed for scientific merit in the usual fashion. If there is some question of the adequacy of the containment capability, the experimental design or the investigators estimate of the risks, the matter would be ...

Methods of improving the pressure containment integrity of subterranean well bores are provided. The methods include pumping a fracture sealing composition into the well bore that rapidly converts into a high friction pressure sealing composition which is impermeable, deformable, extremely viscous and does not bond to the faces of fractures. Thereafter, the fracture sealing composition is squeezed into one or more natural fractures or into one or more new fractures formed in the well bore to thereby increase the pressure containment integrity of the well bore. The methods also include the prediction of the expected increase in pressure containment integrity.

Epidemic model looked at 3 contributing factors. Three waves of the deadliest influenza pandemic in history, known as the Spanish flu, hit England and Wales in 1918, just as World War 1 was coming to an end.. Why flu arrives in multiple waves like this is the focus of a study by McMaster University researchers who discovered three contributing factors: the closing and opening of schools, temperature changes and â most importantly â changes in human behavior.. "We found all three factors were important in 1918 but that behavioral responses had the largest effect," said David Earn, an investigator with the Michael G. DeGroote Institute for Infectious Disease Research, and a professor in McMasters Department of Mathematics and Statistics.. The study appears in the July 10 online issue of the Proceedings of the Royal Society..

Since its discovery, HIV/AIDS has arguably captured more attention among the Chinese biomedical research community than most other infectious diseases. Traditional parasitic diseases, on the other hand, are perceived as being increasingly neglected. However, it has long been recognized that interactions between HIV and other infective agents, including parasites, influence the health status of people living with HIV/AIDS. This study aimed at systematically reviewing the Chinese scientific literature on HIV/AIDS and parasites between 1986 and 2006 in order to substantiate or refute these claims, and to highlight neglected research areas. Searching the three largest Chinese scientific literature databases, in the China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) a total of 24,511 citations dealing with HIV/AIDS and 15,398 parasite-specific publications were identified. Wanfang Data and VIP Information (VIP) contained 15,925 and 13,873 entries dealing with HIV/AIDS respectively, while 12,043 and 7,068 hits
The situation with H5N1 illustrates a number of things quite well. First and foremost, it illustrates the power of both molecular ecology and evolutionary approaches in studies of infectious disease. It also demonstrates the value of studying viruses in other, non-human, systems. Viruses can, have, and will evolve the ability to jump from one species of host to another. Studying viruses in other organisms can provide us with a headstart on identifying and attempting to prevent human outbreaks. Such studies could also provide us with a better understanding of the way that populations of viruses function and evolve. Finally, and most importantly, studies like these clearly indicate something that Tara Smith has been saying over at Aetiology for a while now: we badly need to invest in both our public health system as a whole, and in infectious disease research in particular ...
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just finalized its egg safety rules. The guidance is meant to assist egg producers in following new rules for reducing Salmonella Enteritidis (SE) contamination.. The FDA issued its egg safety rule in July 2009, with the rules provisions going into effect in 2010 for the nations largest egg producers, those with 50,000 or more laying hens. At the time of the rules issuance, the FDA said it would provide additional guidance, said the Center for Infectious Disease Research & Policy (CIDRAP). The FDA published draft guidance August 2010, asking stakeholders for input.. The recommendations address five egg safety rule provisions that include SE prevention measures, environmental testing, and egg testing; sampling methodology; and record keeping for SE prevention plans, said CIDRAP. In its guidance document, the agency said producers must comply with egg safety rule measures; however, recommendations are voluntary. "Producers should select and implement ...
Military contingency operations in tropical environments and potential use of biological weapons by adversaries may place troops at risk for potentially lethal contagious infections (e.g., viral hemorrhagic fevers, plague, and zoonotic poxvirus infections). Diagnosis and treatment of such infections would be expedited by evacuating a limited number of patients to a facility with containment laboratories. To safely evacuate such patients by military aircraft and minimize the risk for transmission to air crews, caregivers, and civilians, the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases maintains an aeromedical isolation team. This rapid response team, which has worldwide airlift capability designed to evacuate and manage patients under high-level containment, also offers a portable containment laboratory, limited environmental decontamination, and specialized consultative expertise. This article also examines technical aspects of the team's equipment, training, capabilities, and

Environmental concerns over the cultivation of Genetically Modified (GM) crops largely centre on the ecological consequences following gene flow to wild relatives. One attractive solution is to deploy biocontainment measures that prevent hybridization. Chloroplast transformation is the most advanced biocontainment method but is compromised by chloroplast capture (hybridization through the maternal lineage). To date, however, there is a paucity of information on the frequency of chloroplast capture in the wild. Oilseed rape (Brassica napus, AACC) frequently hybridises with wild Brassica rapa (AA, as paternal parent) and yields B. rapa-like introgressed individuals after only two generations. In this study we used chloroplast CAPS markers that differentiate between the two species to survey wild and weedy populations of B. rapa for the capture of B. napus chloroplasts. A total of 464 B. rapa plants belonging to 14 populations growing either in close proximity to B. napus (i.e. sympatric 1 km) were ...
The high morbidity and mortality associated with both pandemic and seasonal influenza and the anticipation for future influenza pandemics puts influenza front and center in infectious disease research. Because the natural history and pathogenesis of human influenza has not been well characterized and cannot be adequately studied in animal models or with current in vitro techniques, important questions about influenza pathogenesis can only be approached through human challenge studies.. Previous human challenge studies have addressed some aspects of the natural history by evaluating the timing of viral replication, shedding, clinical symptoms, and innate and adaptive immune responses. Although these studies have provided important information, all but one was performed prior to 1990. Without exception, these studies had limitations due to the scope of the study and/or the scientific techniques available at that time.. The primary goal of this study is to collect and store serum and PBMC samples ...
Performing sensitive biological experiments is always a delicate affair. Few researchers, however, contend with the challenges faced by Cheryl Nickerson, whose working laboratory aboard the International Space Station (ISS) is located hundreds of miles above the Earth, traveling at some 17,000 miles per hour. Nickerson, a microbiologist at ASUs Biodesign Institute, is using the ISS platform to pursue new research into the effects of microgravity on disease-causing organisms.

Please see our Exclusions Guidance Document for examples of material that is excluded from the regulations.. ...
Update on the emerging role of telavancin in hospital-acquired infections Obinna N Nnedu,1 George A Pankey2 1Infectious Disease Department, Ochsner Clinic Foundation, New Orleans, LA, USA; 2Infectious Disease Research, Ochsner Clinic Foundation, New Orleans, LA, USA Abstract: Telavancin is a lipoglycopeptide that has activity against gram-positive aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. It has activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, vancomycin-intermediate S. aureus and non-Van-A strains of vancomycin-resistant enterococci. It has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for complicated skin and skin structure infections and hospital-acquired pneumonia. There is a need for more clinical studies to determine the role of telavancin in treating bacteremia and prosthetic device infections. In this review, we discuss the published data on the use of telavancin in treating hospital-acquired infections and provide an update on new research. Keywords: telavancin, vancomycin,
