Conclusions The frequency of infections among cirrhotics was 61%. Many types of infections including AFI, RTI, UTI and skin infections were present in patients with liver cirrhosis, but AFI was the most common. DM was the only risk factor for infection, and independent predictors for infection were elevated WBC count and C-reactive protein levels. The frequency of infection was related to the degree of malnutrition.

Conclusion Routine renal US in children with CHD demonstrated prevalence of associated congenital renal anomalies in 6% of children undergoing cardiac surgery. The presence of occult renal anomalies was associated with higher UTI risk. Performing routine renal US as a standard practice in children with CHD is justifiable.

Conclusions Patients with AML have an elevated risk of CVA compared to all inpatients and mortality in this population is high. Better characterization of risk factors of stroke in this vulnerable population is still needed. Teaser Acute leukemia predisposes patients toward the development of stroke. The latter, while devastating clinically, has been infrequently studied. Our study, using the 2012 National Inpatient Sample, found a 50-fold increase in the risk of stroke as compared to all inpatient admissions with a corresponding 5.5-fold increased risk of mortality. Significant risk factors for the development of stroke i...

Innate-immunity-related genes in humans are activated during urinary tract infections (UTIs) caused by pathogenic strains of Escherichia coli but are suppressed by commensals. Epigenetic mechanisms play a pivotal role in the regulation of gene expression in response to environmental stimuli. To determine whether epigenetic mechanisms can explain the different behaviors of pathogenic and commensal bacteria, we infected larvae of the greater wax moth, Galleria mellonella, a widely used model insect host, with a uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) strain that causes symptomatic UTIs in humans or a commensal-like strain that causes a...

In September 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics(AAP) released updated guidelines for workup of children 2 –24 months old with a febrile urinary tract infection(UTI). We aimed to document the guideline’s impact on diagnosis and surgical management of VUR at US children’s hospitals. We hypothesize that VCUG studies and VUR treatment rate decreased concurrent with national guideline release.
