Tools for GPs can help reduce unnecessary antibiotic prescribing
This NIHR Signal is provided for a review of 53 qualitative studies which found that GPs were most likely to accept interventions if perceived as supportive aids. Interventions need to be flexible so that they can be adjusted according to circumstances and priorities.
CONCLUSIONS: There was no association between the risk factors examined and HTLV/HIV coinfection. This is the first study to report the occurrence of HTLV-2 in Pernambuco.
Publication date: Available online 17 July 2019Source: SexologiesAuthor(s): L. Gaissad, A. VelterSummaryThe major studies on men who have sex with men (MSM) in France (which began with Michael Pollak and Marie-Ange Schiltz forty years ago in Gay Press) introduced the idea of drug use in 1997, just after highly effective antiretroviral treatment (HAART) combinations were made available for HIV, making AIDS a manageable chronic condition. Australian researcher Kane Race identifies this time as the beginning of a “lifetime of drugs”, but the utility of surveys into the use of psychoactive substances among gay peop...

Conclusion: String test, aids prediction of disease severity, and is independently associated with increased mortality in invasive carbapenem resistant K.pneumoniae health care-acquired infections. High meropenem MIC is a significant risk factor for mortality. Combination of string positive carbapenem resistant hypermucoviscous K. pneumoniae resulted in mortality rate of 84.2%. It is important to monitor prevalence of carbapenem resistant hypermucoviscous/hypervirulent K. pneumoniae among invasive isolates especially in a setting with high resistance rates as combination of increased virulence and decreased susceptibility ...
