Every 10 minutes a child goes to the ER for medicine poisoning
Many parents are underestimating their kids' ability to get their hands on dangerous medications
ConclusionsThe genome sequence of B. cereus S66 provides a valuable reference to further research on multidrug resistance characteristics and pathogenic system analysis of Bacillus sp. in the clinic.
ConclusionNaphthalene ingestion can lead to severe intravascular hemolysis as well as methemoglobinemia. The resultant pigment nephropathy may also lead to acute kidney injury.
The current study assessed associations of clinical characteristics and all-cause mortality among a cohort of Veterans initiating pain services. Analyses were also stratified by age to examine potential variations. Demographic (male, age), medical comorbidities (diabetes, myocardial infarction, chronic pulmonary conditions, cancer, renal disease, liver disease), pain characteristics (pain intensity, opioid analgesic prescription), and mental health characteristics (depression, opioid use disorder, opioid poisoning/suicide attempts) were extracted from Veterans Health Administration records.
Authors: Manfredi EA, Rivas M Abstract On November 27, 2008, a foodborne disease outbreak associated with the consumption of chicken salad occurred in a kindergarten in the District of Hurlingham, Province of Buenos Aires. Thirty-seven children and 10 adults with gastrointestinal symptoms were affected. Five children were hospitalized with signs of dehydration, one of them requiring intensive care. Staphylococcus aureus subsp. aureus was isolated from the mentioned food in 4 out of 5 stool specimens from the patients, and in 3 out of 5 food handlers (nose of food handler #1, hands of food handlers #2 and 3). The is...
We describe here a marked chemo-diversity in the tropane alkaloid content in Mandragora spp. M. officinarum and M. turcomanica lack anisodamine and scopolamine but display up to 10 fold higher hyoscyamine levels as compared with M. autumnalis. Transcriptomic analyses revealed that H6H is highly conserved among scopolamine-producing Solanaceae. MoH6H present in M. officinarum differs in several amino acid residues including a homozygotic mutation in the substrate binding region of the protein and its prevalence among accessions was confirmed by Cleaved-Amplified-Polymorphic-Sequence analyses. Functional expression revealed ...

This article addresses lead exposure upon arrival and post-resettlement in 705 refugee children (age 0 –16 years) attending a university clinic in Syracuse, NY, a city with a large refugee population. 17% of the newly arrived children had elevated blood lead levels (BLLs) (≥ 5 µg/dL); 10% had elevated BLL upon follow-up; 8.3% of the children’s follow-up elevated BLL were new exposures. 30% were found to have increased BLL at follow-up regardless of arrival status. An analysis of new exposures found a significant proportion of children would have been missed on routine screening that ta...
