Authors: Ding HG, Zhou HF, Diao MY, Xu Y, Pan QM, Shen XH Abstract OBJECTIVE: Histidine-Rich Glycoprotein (HRG) has been reported to be associated with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, cancer, and sepsis as a novel biomarker. However, there is limited evidence regarding its value in diagnosing or prognosis evaluating of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP). PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 186 patients intubated in ICU and 65 healthy volunteers were enrolled in this study. Patients were divided into VAP group (n = 116), non-VAP group (n = 70) and control group (n = 65). The HRG, C reactive protein (CRP) and proc...

Eosinophilic pneumonia (EP) is a rare and severe disease that belongs to the group of pulmonary eosinophilias (PE). There are two clinical presentations: chronic eosinophilic pneumonia (CEP) and acute eosinophilic pneumonia (AEP). In 1989, Allen et al. described the first case of AEP. 1 Many causes of AEP have been described, although the idiopathic form is the most common.3 We herein present a case of AEP probably due to piperacillin/tazobactam (P/T).

ConclusionLiver abscess due toKlebsiella pneumoniae is an emerging infection and most commonly reported from Southeast Asia. In Sri Lanka, further studies are necessary to understand the epidemiology and modes of spread. Furthermore, a high index of suspicion is essential as early detection is the key to successful treatment and prevention of complications.

Conclusions: If the patients in this sample had been previously vaccinated with PCV13 plus PPV23, theoretically, 50.8% of the cases of invasive pneumococcal disease that required hospital admission could potentially have been prevented. Invasive pneumococcal disease should be prevented by vaccination not only of children and the elderly but also of adults in their economically productive years, so as to reduce the socioeconomic costs, morbidity, and mortality s till associated with the disease, especially in underdeveloped countries.RESUMO Objetivo: Avaliar os sorotipos de Streptococcus pneumoniae isolados de uma popula &c...

ABSTRACT Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is the leading cause of death worldwide. Despite the vast diversity of respiratory microbiota, Streptococcus pneumoniae remains the most prevalent pathogen among etiologic agents. Despite the significant decrease in the mortality rates for lower respiratory tract infections in recent decades, CAP ranks third as a cause of death in Brazil. Since the latest Guidelines on CAP from the Sociedade Brasileira de Pneumologia e Tisiologia (SBPT, Brazilian Thoracic Association) were published (2009), there have been major advances in the application of imaging tests, in etiologic investiga...

In order to prevent the disease, immunogenicity and the level of the induction of protective immunity from the recombinant peptidoglycan–associated lipoprotein (rPAL) against Legionella pneumophila in BALB/c mice was examined. Mice immunized with (rPAL) rapi...

Potter, S. van Drunen Littel-van den HurkAbstractHuman parainfluenza virus 3 (PIV3) and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) are major causative agents of serious respiratory tract illness in newborns and infants. Maternal vaccination could be a promising approach to provide immediate protection against severe PIV3 and RSV infection in young infants. Previously, we demonstrated that maternal immunization with a subunit vaccine consisting of the RSV fusion (F) protein formulated with TriAdj, an a...
