Ten million lives saved by 1962 breakthrough, study says

(University of Illinois at Chicago) Nearly 200 million cases of polio, measles, mumps, rubella, varicella, adenovirus, rabies and hepatitis A -- and approximately 450,000 deaths from these diseases -- were prevented in the US alone between 1963 and 2015 by vaccination, researchers estimate. The study is published in AIMS Public Health.

The San Francisco SPCA announced Friday on Twitter that cases of dog flu had been confirmed in the Bay Area, and encouraged dog owners to contact their veterinarians if their pets display symptoms of the virus. California is one of several states that has reported outbreaks of dog flu, also known as canine influenza, over the past several months. The Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, which monitors reports of dog flu around the country, confirmed that six dogs have tested positive for the canine influenza H3N2 virus in California in the last 45 days. Although there is also an H3N2 strain of human seasonal ...

Conclusions:Complex phenotype features may be involved in the pathophysiology of AIH, accounting for changes in immune system regulation mechanisms. In conclusion, even after good response to treatment, patients still have immune activity signals at the cellular level. Objective: The pathophysiology of autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) may involve the activation of immune cells and changes in the expression of cellular markers. The aim of the present study was to characterize the immunophenotype markers of lymphocytes and monocytes in the peripheral blood of children and adolescents with type 1 AIH and AIH overlap with sclero...

Conclusions:Pediatric PSC patients cared for at a regional referral center had relatively mild disease compared with previously published reports, with low MRCP stricture scores despite significant liver fibrosis. Liver tests at presentation did not correlate with MRCP stricture score or liver fibrosis stage, suggesting the need for future studies to identify potential biomarkers of disease severity. Objectives: The aims of this study were to characterize pediatric primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) at a regional referral-based institution, including scoring of biliary stricturing and liver fibrosis and correlation a...

Paediatric autoimmune liver disease is characterized by inflammatory liver histology, circulating autoantibodies, and increased levels of IgG, in the absence of a known etiology. Three conditions have a likely autoimmune pathogenesis: autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), autoimmune sclerosing cholangitis, and de novo AIH after liver transplantation. Two types of pediatric AIH are recognized according to seropositivity for smooth muscle and/or antinuclear antibody (AIH-1) or liver kidney microsomal type 1 and/or anti-liver cytosol type 1 antibodies (AIH-2). Pertinent issues addressing the diagnosis, treatment, and long-term follow-...

Authors: Dubberke ER, Mejia-Chew C Abstract INTRODUCTION: Clostridium difficile is the most common cause of healthcare associated infection, and C. difficile infection (CDI) is associated with significant costs, morbidity, and mortality. One obstacle to preventing CDI is lack of high quality data on interventions to prevent CDI. This has led some to focus on areas, such as method of hand hygiene, unlikely to impact CDI incidence as much as others, such as contact precautions. In addition, existing strategies, although effective, do have limitations. Another challenge is the ability to rapidly, and accurately, diagn...
