Clinical, radiological and prognostic features of influenza cases in the influenza epidemic during years 2016-2017.

Conclusions: Often manifested as lower respiratory tract infection, influenza may cause epidemics with increased mortality rate. Influenza should be suspected when interstitial pattern was seen on radiological images. H1N1 cases course worse. Since the prognosis is better in vaccinated patients, seasonal influenza vaccination among the community needs to be elevated. In addition, protective measures like vaccination should be taken in pregnancy to avoid preterm delivery or abortion. PMID: 30246658 [PubMed - in process]

The considered different human communities are crossed by a running water which is contaminated by the vibrio cholerae bacterium. The formulated model for each community which is an initial/boundary-value problem constituted of four parabolic partial differential equations, integrates antibiotic treatment, hydration the...

We report the epidemiological, clinical, laboratory, and radiological characteristics and treatment and clinical outcomes of these patients.MethodsAll patients with suspected 2019-nCoV were admitted to a designated hospital in Wuhan. We prospectively collected and analysed data on patients with laboratory-confirmed 2019-nCoV infection by real-time RT-PCR and next-generation sequencing. Data were obtained with standardised data collection forms shared by the International Severe Acute Respiratory and Emerging Infection Consortium from electronic medical records. Researchers also directly communicated with patients or their ...

In this study, we report the epidemiological, clinical, laboratory, radiological, and microbiological findings of five patients in a family cluster who presented with unexplained pneumonia after returning to Shenzhen, Guangdong province, China, after a visit to Wuhan, and an additional family member who did not travel to Wuhan. Phylogenetic analysis of genetic sequences from these patients were done.FindingsFrom Jan 10, 2020, we enrolled a family of six patients who travelled to Wuhan from Shenzhen between Dec 29, 2019 and Jan 4, 2020. Of six family members who travelled to Wuhan, five were identified as infected with the ...

Study aimed to quantitate the expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines (TNF-α, IFN-γ, IL-8) and Cox-2 in endometrial curettage tissue (ECT) of Spontaneous Aborters (SA). SA (n = 135) and 120 age-matched controls were enrolled from SJH, New Delhi, India. PCR was perf...
