DISCUSSION: NGS data could be used in the confirmation of an outbreak and in the tracing of contamination. However, this standard of defining an outbreak with NGS remained a challenge in practice. And the NGS data should be used in combination with other data in epidemiological investigation. PMID: 28888545 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The World Health Organization is issuing a warning about a group of deadly bacteria: Recently, the WHO released its first-ever list of “priority pathogens,” a list of antibiotic-resistant bacteria that the organization says pose the greatest threat to human health. The list is divided into three categories: critical-, high- and medium-priority. Three pathogens made it into the critical-priority group. These bacteria are resistant to multiple antibiotics and pose a high risk to people in hospitals and nursing homes, the WHO says. Multidrug-resistant bacteria, sometimes called “superbugs,” are a ...

When the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed a little over six years ago, it brought with it the promise of health insurance for all Americans. It also sought to begin to shift the paradigm for health care in this country, emphasizing value over volume, and recognizing the importance of prevention coupled with appropriate access to care. By now, it is well known that repealing the ACA could leave nearly 20 million Americans uninsured and simultaneously result in millions of job losses across the country. An associated cost that has been less discussed, but no less relevant, is what repeal could mean for the nation’s...

(Cell Press) Salmonella infections are typically the culprit behind food poisoning outbreaks, but in sub-Saharan Africa, they often cause drug-resistant, deadly bloodstream infections and meningitis. A study in mice published in Cell Host&Microbe now reveals how African nontyphoidal Salmonella (NTS) strains leave the gut and spread throughout the body. Ironically, loss of a bacterial gene has allowed the African NTS lineages to more efficiently hijack immune cells and travel through the blood to different organs.

Jo Robertson was recently inside the home of a dead man she’d never met. There were messages on the answerphone, so she pressed play and a male American voice cheerfully said, “Hi, how are you?” The next message was the same voice, asking if the man was OK because he hadn’t called him back. A third message said, “What’s going on? Please get back to me”. Finally, the friend’s fourth message said, “Something must have happened. If anyone is listening to this please contact me.” Jo wasn’t trespassing. She was in the dead man’s home because she’s an ...
