Extensively drug-resistant bacteria are an independent predictive factor of mortality in 130 patients with spontaneous bacterial peritonitis or spontaneous bacteremia.
CONCLUSION: XDR bacteria are an independent life-threatening factor in SBP/SB. Strategies aiming at restricting antibiotic overuse and rapid identification of the responsible bacteria could help improve survival. PMID: 27099449 [PubMed - in process]

We present Prokaryotic Expression-profiling by Tagging RNA In Situ and sequencing (PETRI-seq), a high-throughput prokaryotic scRNA-seq pipeline. We demonstrated that PETRI-seq effectively barcoded single bacterial cells in a species-mixing experiment with E. coli (MG1655) and S. aureus (USA300). Within the S. aureus population, we found rare prophage induction in 0.04% of cells. We further demonstrated that PETRI-seq was able to distinguish between E. coli growth phases based on mRNA expression patterns by combining stationary E. coli with exponential E. coli in multiple experiments.
This study is the first report on a non-blue laccase, exhibiting Mn(II)-oxidase activity. Thus, it offers a novel finding of the Mn(II) oxidation processes that can be a valuable way of Mn(II)-mineralization in various metal-polluted environments. PMID: 32443277 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Will Rogers, director of a senior softball tournament scheduled to take place in early June in Columbia, Mo., will be hosting an event that seems inherently dangerous. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, you’d be hard-pressed to find a public health expert who thinks a gathering of 60 teams from various states, with players ranging in age from 40 to 70-plus, is a good idea. The data could not be clearer: older Americans are most at risk of suffering fatal consequences of the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. However, Rogers, who will also suit up to play with the 65-and-over Kansas City Kids at the Missour...
This study shows the possible use of bedside chest ultrasonography as a screening tool for COVID-19 pneumonia in nursing home residents, for early detection of outbreaks and adequate management.
