In this study, we investigated the reported dependence on the ATP pools for persister cell formation in fluoroquinolone-resistant variants of the facultative intracellular pathogen Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium. We compared the generation of persister cell populations after ciprofloxacin challenge of wildtype and a nalidixic acid-resistant variant of S. Typhimurium with reduced ciprofloxacin-susceptibility, as well as strains containing a deletion of the atp operon or harbouring the cloned atp genes. A gyrA mutation (D87Y) was found to contribute to increased stationary phase formation of persister cells in S. Ty...

As so often happens, a frantic mother called us about her 19-year-old daughter, who I’ll call Jen. A heroin addict, Jen had been shuttled between multiple treatment centers and sober homes by greedy marketers looking to cash in on the teenager’s insurance benefits by keeping her perpetually in recovery, but never sober. As our investigator searched Palm Beach County for Jen, her mother finally reached her by phone. She pleaded with her daughter to leave Florida, to which Jen replied, “Why would I come home? I have all I need here.” In the ensuing months, Jen has become a victim of a vicious cycle kn...

Conclusion Through relatively small amounts of grant support over the last 6 y, CRSCI has helped local public health agencies in sixteen states and two cities—whose combined population reaches half of the U.S. total—identify critical climate impacts and vulnerable populations. In the process, the program has helped to integrate health more fully into local climate change efforts. As a result of CRSCI support, these local public health agencies—the backbone of public health climate response capacity—have tools to enhance real-life adaptive capacity and increase the effectiveness of existing intervent...
