Abstract Influenza viruses A and B are important human respiratory pathogens causing seasonal, endemic and pandemic infections in several parts of the globe with high morbidity and considerable mortality. The current inactivated and live attenuated vaccines are not effective. Therefore, it is of interest to design universal influenza virus vaccines with high efficacy. The peptide GQSVVSVKLAGNSSL of pandemic influenza, the peptide DKTSVTLAGNSSLCS of seasonal influenza and the peptide DILLKFSPTEITAPT of influenza B were identified as potential linear cell mediated epitopes. The epitopes predicted by BepiPred (B-cell...

ConclusionsWe found PTB specially clustered in south-western Zhaotong. The strong associated factors influencing the PTB spatial cluster including: the history of chronic bronchitis, living in the urban area, smoking and the use of coal as the main fuel for cooking and heating. Therefore, efforts should be made to curtail these associated factors.

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2018Source: Journal of Theoretical BiologyAuthor(s): Marina Voinson, Alexandra Alvergne, Sylvain Billiard, Charline SmadiAbstractMost emerging human infectious diseases have an animal origin. While zoonotic diseases originate from a reservoir, most theoretical studies have principally focused on single-host processes, either exclusively humans or exclusively animals, without considering the importance of animal to human transmission (i.e. spillover transmission) for understanding the dynamics of emerging infectious diseases. Here we aim to investigate the importance of spillover...

We describe the case of a patient with pulmonary hydatid cyst associated with tuberculosis infection where the diagnosis was unknown prior to surgery because TB tests were negative. The surgical resection was very difficult because of inflammation in the surrounding tissue and its fragility. However, the postoperative course was uneventful. The goal of this case report is to keep in mind that such co-infection is possible especially in endemic countries. PMID: 30104049 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to assess patients' knowledge of antimalarial treatment (ACT) and its association with patient adherence. A descriptive cross-sectional study design was employed in this study. Data were collected from April to May 2017. Both descriptive and inferential statistics in the form of frequencies, percentages, mean values, standard deviations, and Pearson's chi-square test were generated by use of Microsoft excel spreadsheet and IBM Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 23. The average age of the respondents surveyed for this study was 42.27 ± 11.09. Adherence level to ACT was 47%. The re...

AbstractPurpose of Review:We aim to highlight the common infectious pathogens that affect evacuees, non-evacuees, and medical responders following hurricanes in the USA, in order to help clinicians quickly diagnose and treat patients and increase medical preparedness in hurricane affected areas.Recent Findings:Hurricanes facilitate the spread of infectious pathogens through population displacement, flooding, and trauma. Hurricane shelters create conditions that lead to the spread of infectious pathogens due to overcrowding, resource limitation, and reduced hygiene. The pathogens that tend to spread during hurricanes are of...

A hyperendemic rotavirus season was expected after a low-endemic 2014 season in the Netherlands. Rotavirus detections were however similar in 2015 and lower in 2016 compared with 2010–2013. Gastroenteritis consultation rates were also similar in 2015, but the age distribution shifted to older children because of an accumulation of noninfected children. Results indicate a possible shift to a biennial rotavirus pattern.
