Burden of infection on growth failure. (1/2636)

The high prevalence of infections among children living in poor areas of developing countries impairs linear growth in these populations. Acute, invasive infections, which provoke a systemic response (e.g., dysentery and pneumonia), and chronic infections, which affect the host over a sustained period (e.g., gut helminth infections), have a substantial effect on linear growth. Such infections can diminish linear growth by affecting nutritional status. This occurs because infections may decrease food intake, impair nutrient absorption, cause direct nutrient losses, increase metabolic requirements or catabolic losses of nutrients and, possibly, impair transport of nutrients to target tissues. In addition, induction of the acute phase response and production of proinflammatory cytokines may directly affect the process of bone remodeling that is required for long bone growth. Infection of cells directly involved in bone remodeling (osteoclasts or osteoblasts) by specific viruses may also directly affect linear growth. Many interventions are possible to diminish the effect of infection on growth. Prevention of disease through sanitation, vector control, promotion of breast-feeding and vaccination is crucial. Appropriate treatment of infections (e.g., antibiotics for pneumonia) as well as supportive nutritional therapy (again including breast-feeding) during and after recovery, is also important. Targeted therapeutic interventions to decrease the prevalence of gut helminth infections may also be appropriate in areas in which such infections are widespread. Such interventions are of public health benefit not only because they reduce the incidence or severity of infections, but also because they decrease the long-term detrimental effect of malnutrition on populations.  (+info)

Time sequential chemotherapy for primary refractory or relapsed adult acute myeloid leukemia: results of the phase II Gemia protocol. (2/2636)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: High-dose cytarabine (HDAra-C), mitoxantrone and etoposide are the mainstay of several active regimens against relapsed or refractory acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). We designed a phase II study to assess the efficacy and side effects of a time sequential application of mitoxantrone plus intermediate-dose Ara-C followed by HDAra-C plus etoposide (GEMIA) in adult patients with refractory or relapsed AML. DESIGN AND METHODS: Patients with refractory or relapsed AML were eligible for GEMIA salvage therapy, which comprised mitoxantrone 12 mg/m2/day on days 1-3, Ara-C 500 mg/m2/day as a 24-hour continuous infusion on days 1-3, followed by HDAra-C 2 g/m2/12-hourly on days 6-8 and etoposide 100 mg/m2/12-hourly on days 6-8. Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor was started on day 14. In patients above the age of 55 the dose of Ara-C in the first sequence (days 1-3) was reduced to 250 mg/m2. RESULTS: Twenty patients were included, of whom 12 achieved complete remission after GEMIA (60%, 95% CI 40-80%), one was refractory and five died early from infection. Two additional patients achieved partial remission after GEMIA and complete remission after consolidation chemotherapy, for a final CR rate of 70% (95% CI 48-88%). Neutrophils recovered at a median of 27 days (range, 22-43) and platelets 46 days (range, 25-59) after the start of treatment. The median duration of remission was 133 days (range, 36-417+) whereas overall survival time lasted for a median of 153 days (range, 13-554+). Treatment-associated toxicity was comprised predominantly of infection, mucositis and diarrhea that reached World Health Organization grades III-V in 40%, 40% and 30% of patients, respectively. Despite the intention to rapidly proceed to a hematopoietic stem cell transplant in patients in remission, only five patients reached the transplant. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: The GEMIA time sequential chemotherapy regimen appears effective in obtaining remissions in refractory and relapsed adult AML. The high toxicity seen, however, suggests that its design is amenable to further improvements, especially in more elderly patients. Since remissions are short-lived, more innovative post-remission strategies are needed.  (+info)

Diagnostic approach to lymph node enlargement. (3/2636)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: How to reach the correct diagnosis of a lymph node enlargement is still a problem which strongly challenges the knowledge and experience of the clinician. Organized and specifically oriented literature on the right sequential steps and the logical criteria that should guide this diagnostic approach is still lacking. METHODS: The authors have tried to exploit available knowledge and their personal experience by correlating a large body of information regarding size, physical characteristics, anatomical location of enlarged lymph nodes, and the possible epidemiological, environmental, occupational and clinical categorization of this condition. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: It was intended that such material would have constituted the basis of a hypothetic decision-making tree, but this was impossible because of the lack of epidemiological investigation and registry data. Nevertheless, we present this preparatory work here in order to stimulate the interest of concerned readers and because of its possible direct usefulness in hematologic practice.  (+info)

Acute hemorrhagic leukoencephalitis in patients with acute myeloid leukemia in hematologic complete remission. (4/2636)

The authors describe the cases of three patients affected by acute myeloid leukemia, in complete remission, who rapidly developed neurologic symptoms leading to death. Neither clinical characteristics, nor radiological or microbiological procedures, allowed an etiological diagnosis of the neurologic syndrome. Post-mortem examination of the brain showed both macroscopic and microscopic findings compatible with acute hemorrhagic leukoencephalitis. The difficulty in distinguishing this entity from other CNS disease-related complications (e.g. leukemia infiltration, drug toxicity, hemorrhages) should not lead to an underestimation of the true incidence of this complication. We believe that with more attention to the possibility of this complication there would probably be both a greater possibility of collecting clinical informations about the real impact of this dramatic disease and a stronger hope of finding the right treatment for it.  (+info)

Early childhood infection and atopic disorder. (5/2636)

BACKGROUND: Atopy is of complex origins but the recent rise in atopic diseases in westernized communities points to the action of important environmental effects. One candidate mechanism is the changing pattern of microbial exposure in childhood. This epidemiological study investigated the relationship between childhood infections and subsequent atopic disease, taking into account a range of social and medical variables. METHODS: A total of 1934 subjects representing a retrospective 1975-84 birth group at a family doctor practice in Oxfordshire were studied. Public health and practice records were reviewed; temporal records were made of all diagnoses of infections and their treatments, all immunisations, and diagnoses of asthma, hay fever and eczema; maternal atopy and a number of other variables were documented. RESULTS: Logistic regression analysis identified three statistically significant predictors of subsequent atopic disease: maternal atopy (1.97, 95% CI 1.46 to 2.66, p < 0.0001), immunisation with whole-cell pertussis vaccine (1.76, 95% CI 1.39 to 2.23, p < 0.0001), and treatment with oral antibiotics in the first two years of life (2.07, 95% CI 1.64 to 2.60, p < 0.0001). There was no significant association found for maternal smoking, bottle feeding, sibship size, or social class. CONCLUSIONS: The prediction of atopic disease by maternal atopy mainly reflects the effect of acknowledged genetic factors. Interpretation of the prediction of atopic disorders by immunisation with wholecell pertussis vaccine and treatment with oral antibiotics needs to be very cautious because of the possibilities of confounding effects and reverse causation. However, plausible immune mechanisms are identifiable for the promotion of atopic disorders by both factors and further investigation of these association is warranted.  (+info)

Differential tumor necrosis factor alpha production in simian immunodeficiency virus-infected rhesus macaques coinfected with Mycobacterium avium. (6/2636)

Mycobacterium avium infections are the third most common opportunistic infection in patients with AIDS. Simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV)-infected rhesus macaques naturally acquire M. avium infections from the environment, and their clinical symptoms are similar to those observed in AIDS patients. We characterized concurrent infection with SIV and M. avium in monkeys on the basis of the growth of the bacteria in macrophages (Mphis) from rhesus macaques and the ability of M. avium to induce SIV replication and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) production. The simian M. avium isolate grew significantly better than did an isolate from an AIDS patient or a chicken isolate (P = .001); it induced significantly more TNF-alpha production in Mphis from SIV-positive and SIV-negative monkeys than did the isolate from an AIDS patient (P = .013). No significant increase in SIV replication was seen in the M. avium isolates, and no correlation was found between increased SIV replication and increased TNF-alpha production. In addition, Mphis from monkeys infected with M. avium during late-stage SIV disease produced less TNF-alpha when stimulated with virulent M. avium.  (+info)

Study of infectious intestinal disease in England: rates in the community, presenting to general practice, and reported to national surveillance. The Infectious Intestinal Disease Study Executive. (7/2636)

OBJECTIVE: To establish the incidence and aetiology of infectious intestinal disease in the community and presenting to general practitioners. Comparison with incidence and aetiology of cases reaching national laboratory based surveillance. DESIGN: Population based community cohort incidence study, general practice based incidence studies, and case linkage to national laboratory surveillance. SETTING: 70 general practices throughout England. PARTICIPANTS: 459 975 patients served by the practices. Community surveillance of 9776 randomly selected patients. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Incidence of infectious intestinal disease in community and reported to general practice. RESULTS: 781 cases were identified in the community cohort, giving an incidence of 19.4/100 person years (95% confidence interval 18.1 to 20.8). 8770 cases presented to general practice (3.3/100 person years (2.94 to 3.75)). One case was reported to national surveillance for every 1.4 laboratory identifications, 6.2 stools sent for laboratory investigation, 23 cases presenting to general practice, and 136 community cases. The ratio of cases in the community to cases reaching national surveillance was lower for bacterial pathogens (salmonella 3.2:1, campylobacter 7.6:1) than for viruses (rotavirus 35:1, small round structured viruses 1562:1). There were many cases for which no organism was identified. CONCLUSIONS: Infectious intestinal disease occurs in 1 in 5 people each year, of whom 1 in 6 presents to a general practitioner. The proportion of cases not recorded by national laboratory surveillance is large and varies widely by microorganism. Ways of supplementing the national laboratory surveillance system for infectious intestinal diseases should be considered.  (+info)

Clinical and scientific importance of source control in abdominal infections: summary of a symposium. (8/2636)

In May 1997, a panel of surgeon-investigators met to discuss the clinical importance and research implications of controlling the source of abdominal infections. It was concluded that source control is critical to therapeutic success and that antimicrobial therapy and other adjunctive interventions will fail if the source of infection is not controlled by resection, exteriorization or other means. The panelists presented different definitions of source control, depending on the scientific purpose of the definition. All participants agreed that failure to consider the adequacy of source control of infection has limited the value of most clinical trials of therapeutic anti-infective agents. Besides recognizing source control as an essential goal of patient care, the panelists emphasized the need for further investigative work to define, record and stratify the adequacy of source control in clinical trials of therapeutic agents for abdominal infections.  (+info)

There is much to be offended at in this parashah as well as what one could see as awful medical science: women (and men) rendered impure through normal bodily functions, women rendered more impure when they bear a female child, social ostracisation as a response to infectious illness. The notion that offerings were needed to offset physical states of impurity, the idea that illness is coupled to sin. Many commentators in past and present have wrestled with these texts: can we bend them to say something about our ethical state? Can they offer a warning how we deal with the sick and vulnerable as a community? Is the tzaarat, the Biblical leprosy, really a physical manifestation of leshon hara, evil speech, as the Rabbis suggest? All of these might be valid readings but for once, Id just like to stick to the ...

The distinction in between sexually transferred disease (STD) and sexually transmitted infection (STI) is more than a semantic one and has ramifications with respect to the setting where STI screening tests are ordered and the cost of the tests.. Infectious illness of any type varies from infection alone because disease connotes indications and/or symptoms of health problem. Sexually Transmitted Disease differs from STI in that Sexually Transmitted Disease is associated with indications and/or symptoms of the infection triggering the STD, whereas as STI is often quiet and hidden. Although the latter is often described as asymptomatic STD the better suited or precise term is STI due to the fact that it is a state of being contaminated with or without signs or STD signs. In essence, STI, which came into vogue recently, is a complete term, which refers to both Sexually Transmitted Disease and sexually transmitted infection. It likewise represents exactly what utilized to be commonly called venereal ...

The HEMO Study confirms the high frequency of infections among chronic hemodialysis patients. Serious infections accounted for almost one fourth of all deaths. This proportion is about twice as high as the 12% of deaths estimated previously on the basis of retrospective analysis of the HCFA Death Notification Form (1,8⇓). The higher proportion of infection-related deaths in the current study may be due to the prospective nature of data collection or to differences in the classification of causes of death. The 3.8% annual rate of infection-related deaths in the HEMO Study is comparable to the 3.2% rate reported for all US hemodialysis patient deaths between 1996 and 1998 (2).. Previous studies suggesting a beneficial effect of higher flux or higher Kt/V on infectious outcomes have been hampered by being nonrandomized, retrospective, or small sample size. In a large observational study of USRDS patients, Bloembergen et al. (1) reported a 9% lower relative risk of infection-related death for each ...

August 11, 2021 - Immunity conferred from pure an infection and vaccines, patterns of social contact, and virus transmissibility will all play a job in what COVID-19 will appear to be because it continues to flow into within the months and years forward, says Yonatan Grad, Melvin J. and Geraldine L. Glimcher Affiliate Professor of Immunology and Infectious Illnesses.. Q: Many specialists have stated they anticipate COVID-19 to grow to be an endemic illness. How does a illness go from being acute to endemic? What elements form the transition to endemicity? Whats a probable timeline for COVID-19 to grow to be endemic?. A: The expectation that COVID-19 will grow to be endemic primarily implies that the pandemic wont finish with the virus disappearing; as an alternative, the optimistic view is that sufficient individuals will achieve immune safety from vaccination and from pure an infection such that there will probably be much less transmission and far much less COVID-19-related hospitalization ...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the long-term risk and outcome of infection-related hospitalization (IH) among patients with granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA).. METHOD: We used administrative databases to establish a GPA cohort (n = 398), construct a comparison cohort of population controls (n = 3980), and collect clinical data. Cox regression analyses were used to determine hazard ratios (HRs) as a measure of relative risk. Follow-up began at date of GPA diagnosis and continued for up to 10 years.. RESULTS: GPA patients had a markedly increased long-term risk of IH compared to controls [HR (95% confidence interval) year 1: 9.5 (7.0-12.8); years 2-5: 3.2 (2.4-4.3); years 6-10: 2.6 (1.8-3.9)]. Increased long-term risks were found for hospital-treated pneumonia, urinary tract infection, sepsis, and skin infection. We did not observe a lower risk of IH for people diagnosed with GPA during 2005-2014 than for those diagnosed during 1995-2004. Mortality at 3 and 6 months after IH did not differ ...
The United States healthcare system has some work to do when it comes to managing and treating infectious disease. The CDC has established and disseminated procedures and protocols for healthcare workers who treat patients with infectious diseases. Rigorous preventive measures can greatly reduce the spread of infectious disease. In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention just announced that thirty-five hospitals in the United States are now designated as Ebola treatment centers with additional hospital inclusions to follow.. Similarly, given that viruses such as Ebola, MERS, and Chikungunya are primarily introduced to the United States by returning travelers from affected areas, the cost to the insurance industry for non-healthcare workers contracting these diseases through exposure to infected individuals on air and public transportation must be considered as well.. A more direct impact on the insurance industry comes from the cost of new and experimental drugs in development ...

Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) is the most common type of leukaemia diagnosed in children. The prevailing hypothesis regarding pathogenesis of childhood ALL was developed by Greaves, and states that ALL is caused by an abnormal immune response to a common infection. The response arises either due to naivety of the immune system caused by a lack of common childhood infections, or genetic susceptibility due to specific alleles. The former explanation is known as the delayed infection hypothesis. COVID-19 is a new infection that no children in the UK were exposed to prior to 2020. Furthermore, the lockdown measures designed to prevent spread of this virus have also greatly reduced spread of other common infections. It is therefore important to examine the evidence for this hypothesis, and to consider it in the context of the pandemic to determine what effect lockdown measures may have on incidence of ALL in children ...
Innate immunity, the first line of defense against infectious pathogens and cancer cells, relies on a variety of cell types to carry out its pathogen-fighting and clean-up functions. Resident cells present in most tissues serve as sentinels, detect danger signals and send for help. Phagocytic cells-such as macrophages and neutrophils-respond to the call, infiltrate the […]. ...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether variant alleles in the coding portion of the mannose-binding lectin (MBL) gene are associated with increased susceptibility to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and concomitant infections. METHODS: MBL alleles and serum concentrations were determined by polymerase chain reaction and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, respectively, in 91 Danish patients with SLE and in 250 controls. RESULTS: Homozygosity for MBL variant alleles was observed in 7.7% of the SLE patients compared with 2.8% of the controls (P = 0.06), while no difference was seen for heterozygosity (33.0% versus 34.4%). Homozygotes had an increased risk of acquiring serious infections compared with patients who were heterozygous or homozygous for the normal allele (odds ratio 8.6, 95% confidence interval 1.5-47.6, P = 0.01). The time interval from the diagnosis of SLE to the first infectious event was shorter (P = 0.017), and the annual number of infectious events was 4 times higher, among homozygotes (P = 0
Given the number of prostate biopsies performed annually in the United States and associated infectious events as a result, we sought to determine if implementation of a standardized biopsy protocol utilizing antibiotic prophylaxis based on locally derived antibiograms would result in a decrease, relative to a contemporary control population, in the incidence of infection-related complications among community-based practices. A total of nine member groups of LUGPA participated in both a retrospective review and a prospective study of infection-related complications following prostate biopsy.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Management of Patients After Cardiac Transplantation. AU - OLSON, LYLE J.. AU - RODEHEFFER, RICHARD J.. PY - 1992/1/1. Y1 - 1992/1/1. N2 - During the past decade, the morbidity and mortality associated with cardiac transplantation have decreased dramatically. The current survival for patients who undergo orthotopic cardiac transplantation is 80 to 90% at 1 year and 70 to 80% at 5 years; these results are attributed chiefly to improved immunosuppression and the consequent decrease in infectious illnesses and rejection. Because surgical mortality and technique have not changed appreciably during the past 20 years, improved survival can be ascribed to advances in the medical management of recipients of cardiac transplants. Medical problems frequently encountered in such patients include allograft rejection, allograft vasculopathy, hypertension, renal dysfunction, hyperlipidemia, hyperglycemia, malignant disorders, general surgical disease, and osteopenic bone disease. Hence, the ...
vascular lesions and glomerular immune deposits were evaluated semiquantitatively using the generally recognized nephropatological methods. Extracapillary proliferation and global and segment glomerulosclerosis were evaluated as a percentage of the affected glomeruli. Immune deposits demonstrated the following three immunofluorescent patterns: garland, starry sky and mesangial. Streptococcus was confirmed to be causally related to postinfectious glomerulonephritis in 54% of cases. Staphylococcus was found in 6% of cases and both, streptococcus and staphylococcus in 5%. In 35% of cases no causative agent was demonstrated. IgG and complement component C3 deposits with a starry sky pattern were confirmed to be significantly associated with with glomerular endocapillary proliferation and exudation characteristic of the in the first month of the disease course. A mesangial, often less intensive, pattern of C3 deposits associated with mesangial proliferation predominated in the second and third month. ...
Results Infants exclusively breastfed for 6 months, as per WHO recommendations, presented with fewer infectious episodes than their partially breastfed or non-breastfed peers and this protective effect persisted after adjustment for potential confounders for ARI (OR 0.58, 95% CI 0.36 to 0.92), AOM (OR 0.37, 95% CI 0.13 to 1.05) and thrush (OR 0.14, 95% CI 0.02 to 1.02). Prolonged exclusive breastfeeding was associated with fewer infectious episodes (rs=−0.07, p=0.019) and fewer admissions to hospital for infection (rs=−0.06, p=0.037) in the first year of life. Partial breastfeeding was not related to protective effect. Several confounding factors, including parental age and education, ethnicity, presence of other siblings, environmental tobacco smoke exposure and season of birth were demonstrated to have an effect on frequency of infections during infancy. ...

Vaginal bv infections Natural Treatments - Helpful Bv Natural Remedy. Yes, there are BV natural cures. Antibiotics are not the only solution to this chronic infection. Though drugs may perhaps be effective, they may well cause some unwanted side effects that natural remedies wont have. In the end, it may be quite a lot wiser to go for the natural treatments than the non-natural ones.. Just like any kind of infection and illness, the most effective cure for bacterial vaginosis is actually prevention. You can attain this by primarily improving your immune system. When immunity is strong enough, your body would be able to protect itself from infectious illnesses as well as recover fast from one in case you get infected.. To strengthen resistance, you should eat healthy foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals. You may perhaps also opt to take supplements especially ones which are high in vitamins C and E. Both can be very effective in preventing and curing vaginosis as well as other forms of ...
But because knowledge of the causes of illness was primitive and knowledge of germs was nonexistent, doctors at the time couldnt do much to cure disease or affect its course. Then, in the latter half of the nineteenth century, it became clear that microscopic or invisible organisms caused disease, weve all heard about Louis Pasteur and the other pioneers of microbiology, and that you could prevent disease if you could somehow eliminate the organism that caused it. Remove the handle from the pump in the public square, and you get cholera under control. Heat up the milk to a certain temperature before you drink it, and you can kill the organisms in it that cause illness.. In 1900, the three leading causes of death in the United States were all infectious illnesses: pneumonia, tuberculosis, and enteritis. Along with diphtheria (the tenth most common cause), these diseases caused more than one-third of all deaths. Of these deaths, 40 percent were children under five years old. In 1997, infectious ...

Results 1379 subjects completed the questionnaires during the outbreak, of which 271 developed IGE. Risk factors for IGE included younger age, pre-existing dyspepsia-like symptoms, anxiety and drinking contaminated tap water. Anxiety scores before the outbreak inversely correlated with interleukin-2-expressing CD4+ T cells (r=0.6, p=0.01, n=23). At follow-up, 34 of 172 (20%) IGE subjects developed IBS compared with 24/366 exposed participants (7%, p,0.0001, χ2 test). A Th2 cytokine phenotype at time of infection was associated with increased risk for PI-IBS 1 year later. Except for increased B cell numbers, no evidence for systemic or rectal mucosal immune activation in PI-IBS was demonstrated at follow-up. ...

Some pathogens change their antigenic properties at an intermediate rate in the sense that antigenes remain constant during a single infectious episode while antigenic change is fast enough that a host during its lifespan may experience several reinfections with antigenically cross-reacting strains. Thus the pathogens utilize a distinct life history strategy where evolutionary

Fever of unknown origin (FUO) was defined by Petersdorf and Beeson in 1961 as (1) temperatures of ,38.3°C (,101°F) on several occasions; (2) a duration of fever of ,3 weeks; and (3) failure to reach a diagnosis despite 1 week of inpatient investigation.Although this classification has stood for more than 30 years, Durack and Street have proposed a new system for classification of FUO: (1) classic FUO; (2) nosocomial FUO; (3) neutropenic 101 FUO; and (4) FUO associated with HIV infection. Classic FUO corresponds closely to the earlier definition of FUO, differing only with regard to the prior requirement for 1 weeks study in the hospital. The newer definition is broader, stipulating three outpatient visits or 3 days in the hospital without elucidation of a cause or 1 week of intelligent and invasive ambulatory investigation. In nosocomial FUO, a temperature of ≥38.3°C (≥101°F) develops on several occasions in a hospitalized patient who is receiving acute care and in whom infection was ...
