Authors: Twumasi C, Asiedu L, Nortey ENN Abstract Several mathematical and standard epidemiological models have been proposed in studying infectious disease dynamics. These models help to understand the spread of disease infections. However, most of these models are not able to estimate other relevant disease metrics such as probability of first infection and recovery as well as the expected time to infection and recovery for both susceptible and infected individuals. That is, most of the standard epidemiological models used in estimating transition probabilities (TPs) are not able to generalize the transition esti...

Abriata, Aleksandre Japaridze, Hubert Voilquin, Rajkumar Singh, Jérémie Piton, Lyndon Emsley, Giovanni Dietler, Stewart T. ColeAbstractIn bacteria, nucleoid associated proteins (NAPs) take part in active chromosome organization by supercoil management, three-dimensional DNA looping and direct transcriptional control. Mycobacterial integration host factor (mIHF, rv1388) is a NAP restricted to Actinobacteria and essential for survival of the human pathog...

Authors: Abad CL, Razonable RR Abstract INTRODUCTION: Tuberculosis (TB) in solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Its management in transplant recipients is difficult and highly complex, given the underlying immunosuppression and the risks of drug-drug interactions imposed by immunosuppressive drugs that are needed to maintain the transplant allograft.Areas covered: We provide a brief review of TB in SOT, and discuss the clinical indications, mechanisms of action and drug resistance, drug-drug interactions, and adverse effects of anti-TB drugs. We provide a s...

We present a case of Collecting duct of Bellini carcinoma (CDC) which was masquerading as Genitourinary Tuberculosis/chronic granulomatous disease in a 43 year old women, who presented with complaints of low grade fever, loss of appetite, left loin pain and dyspnoea with recent onset of haemoptysis. After extensive evaluation, she was referred to urology where she underwent a laparoscopic assisted open left radical nephrectomy which was reported to be Collecting duct carcinoma.This case is being presented for the diagnostic dilemma it elicited throughout the evaluation.

In this study, we developed a novel immunotherapeutic peptide by linking the Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70) functional peptide to the extracellular domain of FPR1, a protein overexpressed in cervical cancer, to obtain an MTBHsp70-exFPR1 fusion protein. Our experiments confirmed that the MTBHsp70-exFPR1 protein could promote DC maturation and induce the secretion of IL-12p70, IL-1β, and TNF-α. The antitumor effect of human cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) activated by autologous DCs was assessed in NOG mice. These results indicate that DCs pulsed with MTBHsp70-exFPR1 can enhance anti...

Publication date: Available online 12 December 2019Source: Preventive Veterinary MedicineAuthor(s): V. Guétin-Poirier, J. Rivière, B. DufourAbstractIn the French bovine tuberculosis (bTB) surveillance program, tracing-on and back investigations have a major importance as, in 2016, they represented about 21% of the detected outbreaks. Building on our previous work on the other surveillance system components (Poirier et al., 2019), we evaluated for the first time the sensitivity and the cost of the two existing protocols of bTB’s tracing-on investigations trough scenario tree modelling with a stochastic a...
