Emerging Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Resistance (EIDAR).

CONCLUSIONS: The EIDAR Research Area is responsive to military-relevant infectious disease threats that are also frequently global public health concerns. Several new EIDAR efforts are underway that will provide Combatant Command Surgeons, Infectious Diseases Service Chiefs, and other Force Health Protection stakeholders with epidemiological information to mitigate the impact of EIDs and antimicrobial resistance on the health of U.S. military service members and their dependents.

Authors: Díaz Alcázar MDM, Ruiz Escolano E, Casado Caballero FJ, Cervilla Sáez de Tejada E Abstract A 72-year-old female presented with abdominal pain and constipation and intestinal dilation was found. Abdominal computed tomography showed two areas of thickening and stenosis in the proximal jejunum and preterminal ileum, with an unknown etiology. Exploratory laparotomy was proposed but the patient suffered a sudden and progressive decrease in consciousness. Cranial computed tomography showed an ischemic area and a midline shift. Brain biopsies suggested infection by Aspergillus Fumigatus. Desp...

A mother-of-two finds strength in her communityThis month marked the first time I ’ve ever been to a queue-free post office, and been served by a man wearing gloves in the service station. “We’ve been told to use antibacterial gel every half hour too,” he told me. Supermarkets are quieter than usual, but with no signs of panic buying – unless hand sanitiser counts. “I went to five shops and couldn’t find any,” a neighbour texted me. Dozens of people are “self-isolating”, and it’s a risky place for secret affairs because of the chance everyone you’ve be...

The surface microstructure, chemical components, antibacterial activity and cytocompatibility of the samples were characterized. The results showed that anatase TiO2 nanogranules (45 ± 5 nm) were embedded into nanopits (50 ± 5 nm) and arrayed in an ordered manner. The in vitro antibacterial test showed that there was a 96.3 &...
