Variation in Staphylococcus aureus Colonization in Relation to Disease Severity in Adults with Atopic Dermatitis during av Five-month Follow-up.

Variation in Staphylococcus aureus Colonization in Relation to Disease Severity in Adults with Atopic Dermatitis during av Five-month Follow-up. Acta Derm Venereol. 2017 Apr 04;: Authors: Alsterholm M, Strömbeck L, Ljung A, Karami N, Widjestam J, Gillstedt M, Åhren C, Faergemann J Abstract The aim of this study was to monitor Staphylococcus aureus colonization and disease severity in adults with atopic dermatitis (AD) during 5 months. Twenty-one patients attended 3 visits each for severity SCORing of Atopic Dermatitis (SCORAD) assessment, quantitative cultures from the skin and conventional cultures from the anterior nares, tonsils and perineum. S. aureus isolates were typed for strain identity with pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE). Seventy-one percent of patients were colonized with S. aureus on lesional skin at least once. Density (colony-forming units (CFU)/cm2) was higher on lesional skin than on non-lesional skin (p

A subspecialist friend of mine once told me, in jest, “get an organ” as we were debating over which of us should manage a disease that overlapped in both of our specialties. However, to do so is impossible in the field of allergy. As allergist-immunologists, we quickly came to understand that allergic diseases are immunologic, and by definition, in volve the entire body. It is true that many allergic diseases manifest predominantly in 1 organ, such as asthma involving the lung or atopic dermatitis involving the skin, yet all allergic diseases are systemic.

AbstractThe European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) supports three journals: Allergy, Paediatric Allergy and Immunology as well as Clinical and Translational Allergy. The major goals of EAACI include (i) supporting health promotion in which the  prevention of allergy and asthma plays a critical role and (ii) disseminating the knowledge of allergy to all stakeholders including the EAACI junior members. Substantial progress was made in 2018 in the identification of basic mechanisms of atopic dermatitis and urticaria and the translation of t hese mechanisms into clinics. Many large epidemiologic studi...

Conclusion. The hexane extract of L. apiculata leaves showed the lower MIC against S. aureus when compared with extracts obtained from other parts of the plant. The growth curve and the colonies count suggest a bacteriostatic activity of the L. apiculata leaves extract against Staphylococcus aureus. PMID: 31737073 [PubMed]

Authors: Yücel Ekici N, Külahci Ö Abstract BACKGROUND: Previous reports suggested that allergic/eosinophilic inflammation affects the adenoid and tonsillar tissue. The aim of this study is to evaluate and compare the tissue and serum eosinophilia in children undergoing adeno-tonsillectomy with allergic rhinitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The clinical registers of 125 children who underwent adenoidectomy/tonsillectomy due to adenoid/tonsil hypertrophy were examined and reviewed retrospectively. 57 children with skin prick test positivity and with symptoms of allergic rhinitis were included in the stu...

The association between Salmonella spp. and osteoarticular infections in pediatric patients with major sickle hemoglobinopathies has been well established. However, the contemporary microbiology of these infections in such patients is unknown. We conducted a retrospective review of medical records at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston from 2000 to 2018 to investigate this question. Fifty cases were identified. In 23 (46%) cases, a pathogen was identified. Salmonella was the most common pathogen isolated, accounting for 61% of culture-positive cases followed by Staphylococcus aureus (21.7%).

During my nine years in the NFL, I ruptured tendons in my fingers, suffered multiple concussions, and broke several bones. I tore my ACL, MCL, and PCL, and completely blew out my left knee. That last injury should have ended my career. But it didn’t. I put myself back together and played through the pain. What finally took me down? A tiny bug I had never heard of and couldn’t see. A drug-resistant staph infection called methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus cost me my NFL career—and almost my life. MRSA is one of many deadly, antibiotic-resistant infections. Together, these “superbugs” k...

Discussion Coconut oil along with many other plant oils are used by humans for many reasons. It is often used as a food ingredient either as an ingredient or in food preparation such as frying. It is also used topically and applied to skin, hair or nails to provide protection or help improve their condition. Some people use it for hygiene such as rinsing their mouths while others ingest it like a medication as they feel it improves various acute or chronic diseases. There are relatively few scientific studies of coconut oil use in children or even adults. A PubMed search on 11/23/15 of coconut oil in human children with a...
