A fulminant infection of the meninges and subarachnoid fluid by the bacterium NEISSERIA MENINGITIDIS, producing diffuse inflammation and peri-meningeal venous thromboses. Clinical manifestations include FEVER, nuchal rigidity, SEIZURES, severe HEADACHE, petechial rash, stupor, focal neurologic deficits, HYDROCEPHALUS, and COMA. The organism is usually transmitted via nasopharyngeal secretions and is a leading cause of meningitis in children and young adults. Organisms from Neisseria meningitidis serogroups A, B, C, Y, and W-135 have been reported to cause meningitis.

An infectious disease caused by a spirochete, BORRELIA BURGDORFERI, which is transmitted chiefly by Ixodes dammini (see IXODES) and pacificus ticks in the United States and Ixodes ricinis (see IXODES) in Europe. It is a disease with early and late cutaneous manifestations plus involvement of the nervous system, heart, eye, and joints in variable combinations. The disease was formerly known as Lyme arthritis and first discovered at Old Lyme, Connecticut.

Gram-negative helical bacteria, in the genus BORRELIA, that are the etiologic agents of LYME DISEASE. The group comprises many specific species including Borrelia afzelii, Borellia garinii, and BORRELIA BURGDORFERI proper. These spirochetes are generally transmitted by several species of ixodid ticks.
Blood-sucking acarid parasites of the order Ixodida comprising two families: the softbacked ticks (ARGASIDAE) and hardbacked ticks (IXODIDAE). Ticks are larger than their relatives, the MITES. They penetrate the skin of their host by means of highly specialized, hooked mouth parts and feed on its blood. Ticks attack all groups of terrestrial vertebrates. In humans they are responsible for many TICK-BORNE DISEASES, including the transmission of ROCKY MOUNTAIN SPOTTED FEVER; TULAREMIA; BABESIOSIS; AFRICAN SWINE FEVER; and RELAPSING FEVER.

Usefulness of PCR method for detection of Leishmania in Poland. (2/38)

Leishmania parasites are the etiological agents of leishmaniosis, with severe course and often fatal prognosis, and the global number of cases has increased in recent decades. The gold standards for the diagnosis of leishmaniosis are microscopic examinations and culture in vitro of the different clinical specimens. The sensitivity of these methods is insufficient. Recent development in specific and sensitive molecular methods (PCR) allows for detection as well as identification of the parasite species (subspecies). The aim of the study was to estimate the usefulness of molecular methods (PCR) for detection of Leishmania species and consequently for the implementation of such methods in routine diagnostics of leishmaniosis in Polish patients returning from endemic areas of the disease. In our investigations we used 54 known Leishmania positive DNA templates (from culture and clinical specimens) received from the CDC (Atlanta, GA, USA). Moreover, 25 samples of bone marrow, blood or other tissues obtained from 18 Polish individuals suspected of leishmaniosis were also examined. In PCR we used two pairs of primers specific to the conserved region of Leishmania kinetoplast DNA (kDNA) minicircle (13A/13B and F/R). Using these primers we obtained amplicons in all DNA templates from the CDC and in three Polish patients suspected for Leishmania infection. In one sample from among these cases we also obtained positive results with DNA isolated from a blood specimen which was previously negative in microscopic examinations.  (+info)

Cholera - recommendations for prevention in travellers. (4/38)

This article about cholera is part of our travel medicine series for 2010, providing a summary of prevention strategies and vaccination for infections that may be acquired by travellers. The series aims to provide practical strategies to assist general practitioners in giving travel advice, as a synthesis of multiple information sources which must otherwise be consulted. Cholera is a severe diarrhoeal disease associated with worldwide pandemics. It affects vulnerable populations who lack adequate quality drinking water and sanitation. Travellers are generally at low risk of contracting cholera, even in endemic areas. It is prevented with general water and food precautions (also advisable for prevention of traveller's diarrhoea). In some situations, the oral killed whole cell B subunit vaccine may be recommended for travellers considered at risk.  (+info)

Rabies - prevention in travellers. (7/38)

This article forms part of our travel medicine series for 2010, providing a summary of prevention strategies and vaccination for infections that may be acquired by travellers. The series aims to provide practical strategies to assist general practitioners in giving travel advice, as a synthesis of multiple information sources which must otherwise be consulted. BACKGROUND: Rabies is an acute, almost invariably fatal, progressive encephalomyelitis caused by neurotropic lyssaviruses of the Rhabdoviridae family. OBJECTIVE: Rabies prevention, vaccines and postexposure prophylaxis are discussed, and information regarding vaccines, immunoglobulin products and vaccine regimens that may be encountered overseas is also given. DISCUSSION: Rabies viruses are present in most parts of the world, although it is mainly a problem in developing countries with more than 50,000 people dying from rabies each year, usually after a dog bite. All travellers require education regarding rabies prevention if travelling to an endemic area, and those at high risk of exposure should be offered pre-exposure vaccination.  (+info)

What separates someone who is just starting out in travel medicine from someone who is considered knowledgeable in travel medicine? How do you go from just practicing travel medicine to being consulted as an expert in the field?. Nearly two thousand people have earned the Certificate in Travel HealthTM since it was first offered in 2003. However, the CTH® was conceived as an entry-level exam, not as a board exam. After you take the exam, you need to further understand travel medicine to master the subject.. People who are just entering the field tend to look to textbooks of travel medicine, which are a good start, and soon learn how to use the key references that are used day-to-day, which include subscription services, the CDC Health Information for International Travel, and other material generated in ones own country. However, to go from skilled translator of travel medicine advice for the traveler to someone who truly understands how that information is created is what separates the expert ...
As with most healthcare disciplines, the practice of travel medicine is a changing and evolving field. In recognition of the critical need for travel medicine practitioners to maintain and increase their skills and knowledge, the ISTM has developed a continuing professional development program for travel medicine practitioners. The program is structured around a 10-year cycle of professional education, study and involvement in the field of travel medicine. Activities which comprise this program include, but are not limited to: passing an examination, educational programs and products, writing, editing and reviewing publications, teaching, research, clinical work and other professional development in which travel medicine practitioners participate.. The first step of this process is passing the CTH® examination. Beginning with the CTH® Certificates awarded in 2011, there is a mandatory maintenance process every ten (10) years to keep the certificate active. There are two avenues for maintaining ...
This book is a compilation of 40 essays written by many of the most recognized names in the field of travel medicine. It is divided into 9 sections with such topics as the history of travel medicine, vaccines, travel medicine research, pilgrimages, and even space travel. Photographs, tables, and charts enhance the readers interest, especially when one spots a familiar person or place.. The styles range from the didactic, to short story to poetry, and the mood ranges from the humor of Jay Keystones Ten Commandments to the stark reality of Marc Shaws Amazonas Adventure. One cannot help but chuckle at Charles Ericssons description of diarrhea research or laugh outright at Steve Tooveys Woman Atop the Crocodile, and Nancy Piper Jenks account of undocumented migrants may bring the reader to tears.. This is not a formal textbook of travel medicine, but much can be learned from it. Although not a history text, the book is replete with fascinating accounts of medical history. One learns such ...

Dreaming of the cruise of your life time to exotic ports and tropical lands? Disease risk is something your travel agent usually does not tell you about before you pull out the credit card and pay for your trip. This can be problematic for various reasons. Sometimes, you might not have enough time for necessary travel vaccinations before you embark to obtain full protection. Other times the shots needed might be downright contraindicated for you.. Recently, we had a senior couple coming in for their travel consult before a cruise to South America. Their itinerary saw them traveling into Yellow Fever zones and they needed proof of vaccination for entry into Costa Rica. Matters where further complicated by the fact the the husband was immuno-compromised and the Yellow Fever vaccine was contraindicated for him.. The travel medicine specialist at our clinic had to recommend the couple not travel on the proposed cruise. The travel agency would not give them a refund if they canceled. Needless to say, ...

Approximately 80 million people from industrialized nations travel to the developing world each year.5 This travel exposes travelers to preventable health risks that are unique to their destination country and may also pose a risk of importing travel-related diseases to the local population in their home country. In recent decades, travel medicine has grown into a well-developed subspecialty of medicine, with dedicated publications and professional societies. CDC has also focused education efforts on travelers and provides a comprehensive website devoted to travelers health (www.cdc.gov/travel). Nevertheless, many travelers do not access health resources prior to departure.6,7 In this study, we surveyed 1,254 international travelers departing from a major US airport, to identify barriers to the pursuit of health information and to understand which, if any, sources of health information were being utilized by travelers to high-risk countries.. Fifty-four percent of survey respondents traveling ...

The Visale Community Clinic is run by three registered nurses who live on-site and work, two at a time, around the clock, seven days a week. They too, greeted us with open arms - their first request was for me to assess a pregnant woman with pre-eclampsia and refer her to the NRH. That done, two of the three transported the patient into Honiara and left the students and I to run the clinic for the day. We saw 75 patients that day - 75% of whom presented with fever wanting to be tested for malaria. Malaria is a huge problem in the Solomons and around 50% of those tested had P falciparum or a mixed infection of P falciparum/vivax. The clinic has Rapid Diagnostic Test (RDT) kits available (for which the nurses charge $5SBD equivalent to about $0.90AUD) and there is a microscopist on duty Monday to Friday. I was amazed that, in a country where almost nothing happens in a hurry, many patients prefer to pay for an RDT (instant result) rather than wait 20 minutes for their microscopy result (which is ...

If you are looking for a natural immune booster, here are some facts about olive leaf extract. You can purchase in capsules and take as a supplement to help keep you free from colds and flu this winter. But will it work?.

Zinc, a heavy metal that is toxic at high doses, is used by the cells of the immune system to destroy microbes such as the tuberculosis bacillus or E. coli. Published in the journal Cell Host & Microbe on 14 September 2011, this discovery makes it possible to envisage new therapeutic strategies and test new vaccine candidates.. One of the well-known strategies employed by our immune system to destroy microbes consists in depriving them of essential nutrients such as heavy metals, particularly iron. For the first time, an international study headed by researchers from the Institut de Pharmacologie et de Biologie Structurale (CNRS/Université Paul Sabatier - Toulouse III), the Centre dImmunologie de Marseille Luminy (CNRS/Inserm/Université de la Méditerranée) and the Institut Pasteur has shown that the reverse is also true: the immune cells are capable of mobilizing reserves of heavy metals, especially zinc, to poison microbes. This phenomenon has been demonstrated for Mycobacterium ...

Having enough thiamine in the body is essential for the production of the neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. It is used to relay messages between nerves and muscles, our heart being one of the main muscles that depends on these crucial signals.. In order to maintain proper heart function and normal heart rate, nerves and muscles must be able to use body energy to signal each other. Recent studies have shown that thiamine can be useful in fighting heart disease because it helps maintain healthy ventricular function and treat heart failure (6).. 4. Boosts immunity.
