In vitro and in vivo activities of NS-718, a new lipid nanosphere incorporating amphotericin B, against Aspergillus fumigatus. (1/2546)

We evaluated the in vitro and in vivo potencies of a new lipid nanosphere that incorporates amphotericin B (AmB), NS-718, against Aspergillus fumigatus. The in vitro activity of NS-718 (the MIC at which 90% of strains are inhibited [MIC90], 0.25 microgram/ml) against 18 isolates of A. fumigatus was similar to that of deoxycholate AmB (D-AmB; Fungizone; MIC90, 0.25 microgram/ml), but NS-718 was more potent than liposomal AmB (L-AmB; AmBi-some; MIC90, 1.0 microgram/ml). The in vivo efficacy of NS-718 in a rat model of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis was compared with those of D-AmB and L-AmB. A low dose (1 mg/kg of body weight) of L-AmB was ineffective (survival rate, 0%), although equivalent doses of D-AmB and NS-718 were more effective (survival rate, 17%). However, a higher dose of NS-718 (3 mg/kg) was more effective (survival rate, 100%) than equivalent doses of D-AmB and L-AmB (survival rate, 0%). To explain these differences, pharmacokinetic studies showed higher concentrations of AmB in the plasma of rats treated with NS-718 than in the plasma of those treated with D-AmB. Our results suggest that NS-718, a new preparation of AmB, is a promising antifungal agent with activity against pulmonary aspergillosis.  (+info)

International travel and vaccinations. (2/2546)

With the increase in global travel, no disease is beyond the reach of any population. Traveling patients should be advised to follow food and water precautions and encouraged to receive the recommended immunizations. Travel medicine plays a vital role not only in limiting the morbidity of travel-related illnesses but also in limiting the spread of diseases. This article addresses the common issues related to travel, reviews the care of the immunocompromised traveler, and updates the available vaccinations and prophylactic regimens available to limit sickness abroad.  (+info)

Amebic liver abscess: epidemiology, clinical features, and outcome. (3/2546)

Amebic liver abscess (ALA) is a serious, but readily treatable form of hepatic infection. In order to understand the clinical features of this condition in the United States, we reviewed the medical histories of 56 patients with ALA at two large San Francisco Hospitals from 1979 to 1994. Patients were divided into the following groups based on the presumed manner in which they had acquired ALA: those born or raised in the United States, with a history of travel to an endemic area (Tr-ALA); those from an endemic area, but living in the United States for less than one year (En-ALA); and those neither from nor having traveled to an endemic area (N-ALA). We found distinct clinical patterns in patients from different epidemiological groups. Patients with Tr-ALA were a decade older than those from endemic regions, were more likely to be male, and tended to have an insidious onset. Furthermore, compared to patients with En-ALA, those with Tr-ALA were more likely to have hepatomegaly (P < 0.0001) and large abscesses (ALA > 10 cm; P < 0.01). One third of the patients studied had no associated travel history or endemic origin as risk factors. Of these, 63% had a condition consistent with severe immunosuppression, such as infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), malnourishment with severe hypoalbuminemia, or chronic infection. In patients with N-ALA, the presence of a presumed immunosuppressed state increased significantly, as compared to patients with endemic or travel risk factors for ALA. During the last five years of the study, one third of all patients diagnosed with ALA were HIV positive (including 2 with a new diagnosis of AIDS), many of whom were discovered to be HIV-infected only after presentation with ALA. We conclude that travel to and origin in an endemic area are important risk factors for the development of ALA, and patients in these different epidemiological groups appear to have distinct clinical features. Further, in the absence of recognized risk factors, the development of ALA may suggest an immunocompromised host.  (+info)

Actinomyces and nocardia infections in immunocompromised and nonimmunocompromised patients. (4/2546)

A retrospective survey of nocardia and actinomyces infections in five local hospitals was conducted over a 3-year period in El Paso, Texas, a border city, in the southwestern United States. The medical records of 42 patients with suspected nocardiosis or actinomycosis were reviewed. One patient was diagnosed with actinomyces and 12 patients with nocardia. Microbiological data included morphologic characteristics, biochemical profile, and susceptibility testing. Predisposing factors included leukemia, renal insufficiency, renal transplant, and lymphoma. No predisposing factors were found in 67% (n = 8) of patients (including the patient with actinomycosis). Twenty-three percent (n = 3) of patients had disseminated disease without evidence of underlying disease or immunosuppression. The mortality and morbidity of these infections appeared to be low.  (+info)

Restricted isotypic antibody reactivity to hepatitis C virus synthetic peptides in immunocompromised patients. (5/2546)

An enzyme immunoassay based on three synthetic peptides from the core, NS4, and NS5 regions of hepatitis C virus allowed the detection of antibodies in 100% of immunocompetent infected patients and in 91% of immunocompromised patients (hemodialysis and hemophiliac patients). Immune impairment seemed to restrict the spectrum of antibody isotypes reacting to the core peptide.  (+info)

Fatal disseminated Trichoderma longibrachiatum infection in an adult bone marrow transplant patient: species identification and review of the literature. (6/2546)

Trichoderma longibrachiatum was recovered from stool surveillance cultures and a perirectal ulcer biopsy specimen from a 29-year-old male who had received an allogeneic bone marrow transplant for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The amphotericin B (2.0 microgram/ml) and itraconazole (1.0 microgram/ml) MICs for the organism were elevated. Therapy with these agents was unsuccessful, and the patient died on day 58 posttransplantation. At autopsy, histologic sections from the lungs, liver, brain, and intestinal wall showed infiltration by branching septate hyphae. Cultures were positive for Trichoderma longibrachiatum. While Trichoderma species have been recognized to be pathogenic in profoundly immunosuppressed hosts with increasing frequency, this is the first report of probable acquisition through the gastrointestinal tract. Salient features regarding the identification of molds in the Trichoderma longibrachiatum species aggregate are presented.  (+info)

Candida dubliniensis candidemia in patients with chemotherapy-induced neutropenia and bone marrow transplantation. (8/2546)

The recently described species Candida dubliniensis has been recovered primarily from superficial oral candidiasis in HIV-infected patients. No clinically documented invasive infections were reported until now in this patient group or in other immunocompromised patients. We report three cases of candidemia due to this newly emerging Candida species in HIV-negative patients with chemotherapy-induced immunosuppression and bone marrow transplantation.  (+info)

RSV is a serious cause of morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised adults. Further development and implementation of an effective vaccine and additional therapeutic interventions are needed.
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is associated with significant mortality rates amongst hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients, with less known about other immunocompromised patients. Ten-year retrospective cohort study of immunocompromised patients presenting with RSV disease documented at University Hospitals of Lausanne and Geneva. Severe RSV-related outcomes referred to RSV documented respiratory conditions requiring hospital admission, presenting as lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) or pneumonia. We used multivariable logistic regression to assess clinical and laboratory correlates of severe RSV disease. From 239 RSV-positive immunocompromised in and out-patients 175 were adults and 64 children of whom 111 (47.8%) presented with LRTI, which resulted in a 38% (89/239) admission rate to hospital. While immunocompromised children were more likely to be admitted to hospital compared to adults (75% vs 62.9%, p = 0.090), inpatients admitted to the intensive care unit (17/19) or
Immunocompromised children have a higher risk of developing infections and associated higher rates of mortality and morbidity. Although this group could benefit the most from vaccine administration, specific considerations regarding immunisations are required. This review is a summary of the vaccines that are relevant to the immunocompromised host, covering both live and non-live vaccines. The burden of disease, safety, immunogenicity/effectiveness and specific recommendations for each vaccine are described as well as specific guidelines from different organisations.

Viral infections are an important cause of morbidity and mortality in hospitalized patients as well as out-patients. New strains of viruses may appear and cause epidemics in healthy persons or immunocompromised persons. A better understanding of these new virus strains may help to control and prevent these infections. Some viral infections that would otherwise be asymptomatic or cause mild disease can be life threatening in immunocompromised persons. Immunocompromised persons often shed high titers of virus for prolonged periods of time. In the absence of a potent immune system, viruses may evolve more rapidly in their hosts. Therefore, analysis of sequential virus specimens from these patients can provide information on virus evolution, including how resistance to antiviral agents can develop. In addition, higher titers of virus may be associated with virus mutants that are more adapted to grow in cell culture. In this protocol we will obtain specimens containing viruses from otherwise healthy ...

To our knowledge this case is the longest reported duration of viral shedding in COVID-19 in an immunocompetent patient. While the majority of patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 suffer only a mild illness, a significant proportion of patients require admission for supplementary oxygen therapy. Of those hospitalised, 17% become critically unwell and a have mean duration of viral shedding of 20 days.3 Patients who are immunocompromised or immunodeficient experience a prolonged period of viral shedding in other respiratory viral infections4 5 but experience in COVID-19 is more limited. A recent case series in renal transplant suggest that this is also the case in SARS-CoV-2,6 7 and other individual case reports have detailed patients with a prolonged viral shedding.8 9 These cases have been complicated by treatment with immunomodulatory agents during the acute infection.

Suppose one made a nanobot that dismantles known bacteria and viral proteins and uses them as raw materials to make additional nanobots. If one kept tools in this environment, the tool would stay sterile for cheap. (Presumably there is a means to prevent the nanobots from escaping, such as requiring them to stay within a power field not provided outside the toolbox.) In addition, if these nanobots could be taught not to attack human cells, and could be powered in a human body, then this would restore immune function to the immunocompromised. This would greatly increase their quality of life. In addition, immunocompromising diseases attack immune cells through attachments to their cell membrane. These nano-immune system devices do not have one of those ...

The biggest problem I have with not vaccinating is that its not just a decision a parent is (however wrongly) making for their own child, but that its a decision they are making for other people. If you starve or beat your own kid, thats just your kid affected. If you dont vaccinate your kid, that has the potential of exposing other children or babies or immune-compromised adults to those diseases. That decision, not to vaccinate, carries over to other people. Its like running around with an assault rifle with 29 blanks and a single live round. Spray it across a crowd-- maybe you miss, yay! Maybe you wound somebody, which is pretty bad. Maybe you kill somebody with that one bullet. Whoops.

Sporadic non-clustered hospital-associated listeriosis is an emerging infectious disease in immunocompromised hosts. The current study was designed to determine the impact of long-term and precipitating immunosuppressive agents and underlying diseases on triggering the expression of the disease, and to compare the clinical features and outcome of hospital-associated and community-associated listeriosis. We reviewed the medical records of all patients with Listeria monocytogenes isolated from sterile body sites at a large medical center in southern Taiwan during 1992-2013. Non-clustered cases were defined as those unrelated to any other in time or place. Multivariable regression analysis was used to determine factors associated with prognosis. Thirty-five non-clustered cases of listeriosis were identified. Twelve (34.2%) were hospital-associated, and 23 (65.7%) were community-associated. The 60-day mortality was significantly greater in hospital-associated than in community-associated cases (66.7% vs. 17
We reviewed the clinical and demographic characteristics and outcomes for 13 immunocompromised patients with herpes simplex virus (HSV)-induced meningitis. Eleven patients were receiving chemotherapy for leukemia or lymphoma, and 10 had acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Patients presented with acute febrile meningitis. The median white blood cell count at the onset of symptoms was 400 cells/mm3. Examination of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) specimens showed lymphocytic meningitis, but activated lymphocytes and low glucose levels were both noted in 7 patients. HSV DNA was detected in all CSF specimens, and HSV type 2 was identified in 7. Eight patients had suspected HSV-associated mucocutaneous lesions at the time of meningitis onset. Six patients had initial radiculalgia, with sphincter involvement in 2. Eleven patients received intravenous antiviral therapy, but treatment was delayed for 6 patients. Two of the 6 patients for whom treatment was delayed developed encephalitis and died, whereas 2 ...

Organ transplant recipients receiving immunosuppression show a dramatically increased risk of non-melanoma skin cancer. The cause of this increase is not known. We report that the rate of loss of heterozygosity (at all the loci we examined) was significantly lower in tumours from immunosuppressed individuals than in tumours from immunocompetent subjects [20 out of 148 (14%) vs 157 out of 428 (37%); P| 0.0001]. These results suggest that tumours in immunosuppressed individuals have a different molecular pathogenesis.
Invasive fungal diseases (IFD) are an important cause of morbidity and mortality in premature neonates and immunocompromised pediatric patients. Their diagnostic and therapeutic management remains a challenge. A nationwide survey was conducted among 13 of the largest pediatric units in the United Ki
VTEC are a group of strains of E. coli, which cause severe bloody diarrhoea. VTEC infections can lead to the development of haemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which is the main cause of kidney failure among children. HUS can cause other life-long complications including seizures, bowel perforation and blindness. Ireland currently has the highest incidence of VTEC infections compared to any other European country. There are no vaccines available to protect children and immunocompromised adults against VTEC infections. Due to the risk of patients experiencing severe symptoms and complications, there is an urgent need for a vaccine against this infection. Bacterial proteins involved in host cell attachment have previously been shown to be efficacious prophylactic vaccine antigens for other infections. We have shown that an O157 strain, NCTC12900 has 1.3-fold higher binding to HT29 cells than the commensal strain, HS (P=0.0162). We have used a proteomic approach to identify the bacterial proteins involved in
General Information: This strain is a serotype V clinical isolate and is the most common type amoung GBS-infected (group B streptococcal) non-pregnant adults. Causes meningitis and sepsis in newborns. Streptococci are Gram-positive, nonmotile, nonsporeforming, catalase-negative cocci that occur in pairs or chains. Members of this genus vary widely in pathogenic potential. Most streptococci are facultative anaerobes, and some are obligate anaerobes. Serologic grouping is based on antigenic differences in cell wall carbohydrates, in cell wall pili-associated protein, and in the polysaccharide capsule in group B streptococci. This organism is the leading cause of meningitis and sepsis in newborns. Additionally this organism is the cause of serious infections in immunocompromised adults. Able to asymptomatically colonize human skin and mucous membranes. This organism is also implicated in cases of mastitis in cows. ...

Invasive aspergillosis (IA) is a devastating opportunistic infection and its treatment constitutes a considerable burden for the health care system. Immunocompromised patients are at an increased risk for IA, which is mainly caused by the species Aspergillus fumigatus. An early and reliable diagnosis is required to initiate the appropriate antifungal therapy. However, diagnostic sensitivity and accuracy still needs to be improved, which can be achieved at least partly by the definition of new biomarkers. Besides the direct detection of the pathogen by the current diagnostic methods, the analysis of the host response is a promising strategy toward this aim. Following this approach, we sought to identify new biomarkers for IA. For this purpose, we analyzed gene expression profiles of hematological patients and compared profiles of patients suffering from IA with non-IA patients. Based on microarray data, we applied a comprehensive feature selection using a random forest classifier. We identified ...
BACKGROUND Extrapulmonary tuberculosis (TB) occurs in up to one-fifth of all cases of TB, with abdominal TB accounting for 5% of all cases. It is an uncommon diagnosis in the Western world, where it is primarily identified in immigrant and immunocompromised populations. CASE REPORT We review a case in which a 47-year-old Nepalese woman with a history of cognitive dysfunction secondary to epilepsy presented with decreased appetite and diffuse abdominal pain. She was hypoxic and febrile on initial exam, and imaging indicated lung consolidation, right-sided pleural effusion, and thickening and nodularity of the omentum with patchy wall thickening of the colon ...

This article focuses on specific populations presenting with abdominal pain to the ED and their specific or unique diagnoses. The pediatric, elderly, pregnant, and immunocompromised patients are special populations that pose a particular challenge to clinicians. These high-risk groups often present atypically, and serious conditions can be missed or misdiagnosed. This article discusses unusual diagnoses that often present with abdominal pain as one of the main symptoms.
2). Spontaneously expectorated sputum specimens from immunocompromised patients are often nondiagnostic. One efficient optimization method is a can you take cymbalta with ativan, quasi-Newton minimization method with bounds (L-BFGS-B) 11, 104. The midpoint of the entrance of the sella (Se) represents the midpoint youu the line connecting the posterior clinoid process and the anterior opening of the sella turcica.
Transplant patients are managed by a multidisciplinary team comprising transplant surgeons, pulmonologists, nurse coordinators, pharmacists, physical therapists, dietitians, psychologists, and social workers. At each transplant center, a nurse coordinator is on call to address concerns regarding the care of posttransplant patients in the ED. Patients tend to be well educated and well informed about their disease, but the nurse coordinator may be able to provide additional information regarding recent infection history, medication doses, rejection history, and potential complications in a specific patient. Coordinators should always be called early in the course of patient assessment and management.. Posttransplant patients are at risk for several complications related to their underlying disease, medication side effects, and immunocompromised state. Most centers use cyclosporine, azathioprine, and prednisone for maintenance immunosuppression. In addition, prophylaxis against Pneumocystis carinii ...
Children with impaired immunity are at particular risk of vaccine-preventable infectious diseases. Immune defects are heterogeneous in nature and may be congenital, acquired, or a temporary or ongoing result of treatment for cancer or haematological disease. Guidelines for the vaccination of these children in the UK were issued by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) in 2002, and are supplemented on an ongoing basis by advice in the Department of Health (DH) Green Book to reflect changes in the routine childhood immunisation programme. The approach is condition specific, with vaccines omitted or added to the routine programme based on the nature of the immunocompromise. There remains, however, uncertainty about which vaccines will be safe and effective in individual patients, and about the timing of vaccines where immunosuppression is temporary. Research continues to provide new evidence about the optimal vaccination schedule in the immunocompromised child ...
SAN DIEGO, May 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - Ansun Biopharma, Inc., today announced that the first patient has been enrolled in its Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of DAS181 for the treatment of hospitalized, immunocompromised patients with lower respiratory tract parainfluenza virus infection. The Phase 3 clinical trial (STOP PIV) is being conducted in multiple study centers throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia. Parainfluenza infection in normal, healthy patients is not a life-threatening disease. But in hospitalized, immunocompromised patients who are trying to recover from cancer or an organ transplant, for example, it can cause respiratory complications that may be deadly or cause permanent damage to the lungs, and is an area of unmet medical need, stated Dr. Stanley Lewis, Ansuns Chief Medical Officer. There are no approved drugs to treat parainfluenza infection, making DAS181 a potentially first-in-class therapeutic to treat these most vulnerable patients. DAS181 is ...
The HIV/AIDS pandemic is associated with a number of opportunistic infections of immunocompromised person. Some of these infections are recognized zoonoses that are naturally transmitted between animals and humans. These may be directly transmitted by, animals or indirectly by contact with contaminated food and water. Interactions between animals and humans have a complex interplay and health care providers should be aware of the potential role of animals as reservoirs of infectious diseases for HIV infected patients. The most frequent pattern of infection is characterized either by direct contact with farm or wild animals and/or ingestion of their products. Immunomodulatory antibodies that enhance the immune system to promote the function of immune cells have great promise in preventing and treating opportunistic infections of zoonotic origin in HIV/AIDS patient.

Endemic mycoses are geographically clustered1 as shown in Table 242-2. In cases of suspected infection, past history, including travel, is important because the organisms can remain dormant for many years. Outbreaks and clusters of cases of histoplasmosis associated with soil-disrupting activity have been described. Respiratory infections caused by opportunistic fungi generally do not occupy a geographical or ecological niche but are clustered in centers that care for the immunocompromised host. There seems to be an increase in the incidence of these infections, likely related to an increase in number of immunocompromised patients given intensive antineoplastic and immunosuppressive therapy, related improved survival, increased clinical awareness for these infections, and improved diagnostic ability. The incidence of these infections varies among centers because of factors such as differences in immunosuppressive regimens, transplants, and use of antifungal prophylaxis. For example, the ...

This is perhaps the most unfortunate of all the cancer myths. Cancer is not contagious, but many suffer due to unfair stigma arising from this misunderstanding. If anything, you might be more dangerous to a person that has cancer than they are to you. Why? In some cases, cancer patients are immunocompromised. This weakening of their immune system could be from the disease itself or due to chemotherapy. This makes them more vulnerable to catching a cold, flu or other infection from those around them.. Although cancer itself is not contagious, there are some infections that might increase your risk for cancer. For example, HPV is a virus that is transmitted through sexual contact. Human papillomavirus (HPV) causes most cervical cancers and some cancers of the vagina, vulva, penis, anus, rectum, and mouth/throat. Even if someone does not have cancer, they can spread this virus which may later lead to a cancer diagnosis.. Currently, HPV vaccines are recommended for preteen girls and boys to protect ...

P.7 Interpretive Summary: Technical Abstract: There are an estimated 76,000,000 cases of food-borne illness in the U.S. each year, and the majority of these cases are self-limiting. In individuals with compromised host defenses, however, the risk for severe and life-threatening symptoms is increased due to inadequate defenses to control microbial colonization, invasion, and expression of virulence factors. This high risk group includes individuals who have underlying disease conditions, those who are immunocompromised due to diseases that affect the function of cells of the immune system, persons older than 65 years and children less than 4 years of age, pregnant women and the fetus, individuals who are nutritionally compromised, persons medically compromised as a result of drug treatments for disease and transplantation, and individuals with ...
Its been three months since an article on dichloroacetate (DCA), the chemotherapeutic agent that selectively inhibits cancer cell growth in lung, breast and brain tumor cells grown in culture and lung tumors grown in immunocompromised rats, was published on Highlight HEALTH. Since then, thousands of people have read the article. Indeed, the blogosphere has been buzzing about DCA, unfortunately focusing on a conspiracy theory accusing big pharma of suppressing a cure for cancer instead of recognizing the study for what it is - a preliminary study in cell culture and rats that cannot be translated to humans without further research and clinical trials.. ...

July 8 at 6:26 PM. Michelle A. Williams is dean of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.. When the media covers antibiotic-resistant bugs, they typically describe them with a sense of alarm, fear and helplessness.. Much of this is warranted: Antibiotic resistance is undermining the foundations of our modern medical system. No longer can we count on these drugs for a broad array of critical situations: for patients needing joint replacements or open-heart surgery or Caesarean sections; for immune-compromised individuals receiving cancer treatment or organ transplants; for people undergoing other increasingly commonplace, high-tech invasive procedures.. The Review on Antimicrobial Resistance, a project supported by the British government and the Wellcome Trust, predicts that, by 2050, drug resistance will claim 10 million lives a year worldwide. Closer to home, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 2 million people in the United States will suffer drug-resistant ...
Previous studies have shown that SphK1 is overexpressed in breast cancer, and its level of expression correlates with resistance to treatments and poor patient outcomes (16, 18, 20). However, several factors have hindered progress in determining the role of S1P, the product of SphK1, in tumorigenesis and tumor-induced hemangiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis in vivo. First, because S1P has such a profound role in immune function (35), studies of traditional in vivo metastatic breast cancer models with xenografts in immune-compromised mice that ignore the host immune response to cancer may be difficult to interpret. Second, it has not been possible to accurately quantify S1P in tumors until recently with the development of high sensitivity mass spectrometric assays (25). To this end, we utilized our newly established syngeneic breast cancer model, which not only retains the host immune responses but also more closely models progression of the human disease by forming lymph node and lung metastasis ...
