Molecular detection of Treponema pallidum subspecies pallidum in 150-year-old foetal remains, southeastern France.

CONCLUSIONS: Individual SP332 is the first PCR-confirmed palaeopathological case of syphilis identified in France, and the youngest specimen ever to be diagnosed with certainty for congenital syphilis. Future research aimed at better characterizing this 150-year-old treponeme genome and exploring new archaelogical cases of syphilis in the very young should contribute to a better comprehension of the disease's history.

Authors: Khairnar H, Ingle M, Chauhan S, Pipalia N, Sawant P, Pandey V, Shukla A Abstract Introduction: Computed Tomography of abdomen frequently shows bowel wall thickening with different grades and characteristic of thickening. The correlation of bowel wall thickening (BWT) with endoscopic findings is not well described in Indian population. Therefore we did this study to determine the correlation of BWT with endoscopic findings. Methods: Its Prospective single center study with 85 Consecutive patients with age group more than 12 years with CT scan abdomen showing bowel wall thickening were included in the st...

As of 2017, the reported incidence of syphilis in the European Union is higher that that of HIV infection.   In the following chart, I’ve contrasted trends of venereal diseases for the region. [1]  Data are derived from GIDEON and the Gideon e-book series. [2]  Note that gonorrhea is most common, followed by syphilis, HIV / AIDS and lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV).  In fact, if current trends continue, LGV infection may become more common than AIDS in the near future.  As depicted in the second chart,  reported cases of chlamydial infection are higher than the co...

In this study, we typedM.bovis isolates from livestock, and investigated their genetic diversity and distribution. A total of 204M.bovis isolates were collected from cattle (n = 164) and Sicilian black pigs (n = 40) reared in a limited area of the province of Messina, northeastern Sicily, an area that had previously been identified as having the highest incidence of bTB in livestock on the island. AllM.bovis isolates were typed by both spoligotyping and 12-loci MIRU-VNTR analysis. Results from both methods were then combined in order to improve the discriminatory power ofM.bovis typing. We identified 73 combined genetic pr...

The effort was undertaken to exploit the heritage data to establish the next experimental design space for the class of 9–12 wt% Cr steels for the application of turbine rotors with an operating temperature of 650 ∘C and above. Linear, lasso, and multivariate ...
