By SAURABH JHA, MD Slumdog TB No one knows who gave Rahul Roy tuberculosis. Roy’s charmed life as a successful trader involved traveling in his Mercedes C class between his apartment on the plush Nepean Sea Road in South Mumbai and offices in Bombay Stock Exchange. He cared little for Mumbai’s weather. He seldom rolled down his car windows – his ambient atmosphere, optimized for his comfort, rarely changed. Historically TB, or “consumption” as it was known, was a Bohemian malady; the chronic suffering produced a rhapsody which produced fine art. TB was fashionable in Victorian Britain...

CONCLUSION: Pregnancy-associated aHUS usually presents in the postpartum period, often after a pregnancy complication, and eculizumab is effective for achieving disease remission. SYSTEMATIC REVIEW REGISTRATION: PROSPERO, CRD42019129266. PMID: 31809447 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Chorioamnionitis and endometritis were the most common causes of sepsis, together accounting for about half of cases. Notable differences were observed in the sensitivity and specificity of sepsis screening tools with the highest to lowest sensitivity being SIRS, MEW, and qSOFA criteria, and the highest to lowest specificity being qSOFA, MEW, and SIRS. Mortality was doubled in the cohort of patients who received antibiotics after>1 hour. Clinicians need to be vigilant to identify cases of peripartum sepsis early in its course and prioritize timely antibiotic therapy. PMID: 31743182 [PubMed - in process]

Campylobacter jejuni is a leading cause of foodborne illnesses worldwide. Its porA gene encodes the major outer membrane protein (MOMP) that is abundantly expressed and has important physiological functions, including a key role in systemic infection and abortion induction in pregnant animals. Despite the importance of porA in C. jejuni pathogenesis, mechanisms modulating its expression levels remain elusive. At the 3' end of the porA transcript, there is a Rho-independent transcription terminator (named TporA in this study). Whether TporA affects the expression and function of MOMP remains unknown and is investigated in t...

Conclusions: Due to high rates of resistance, strategies using empirical therapy of second-generation cephalosporins and fluoroquinolones should be reconsidered in this population. PMID: 31717981 [PubMed - in process]

This study was performed to analyze perinatal prognosis and related factors of maternal bacterial sepsis in west China. We conducted a cross-sectional study of pregnant women with bacterial sepsis who were admitted into a tertiary care center in western China between 2011and 2015. Data from these cases were collected and analyzed. Eighty six women were identified with bacterial sepsis in our hospital, and the incidence of maternal bacterial sepsis was 1.7 per 1000 maternities, the incidence of septic shock was 1.8 per 10,000 maternities, and 1 maternal death occurred. Among the 86 pregnant women with bacterial sepsis, ge...

AbstractPurposeUrinary tract infections (UTI) are one of the most common reasons for prescribing antibiotics in primary care. In Switzerland, the Swiss Center for Antibiotic Resistances (ANRESIS) provides resistance data by passive surveillance, which overestimates the true resistance rates. The aim of this study was to provide actual data of the antimicrobial resistance patterns in patients with UTI in Swiss primary care.MethodsFrom June 2017 to August 2018, we conducted a cross-sectional study in 163 practices in Switzerland. We determined the resistance patterns of uropathogens in patients with a diagnosis of a lower UT...
