Garner, Shangxin YangNext-generation sequencing–based 16S rRNA gene metagenomic sequencing (16S MG) technology has tremendous potential for improving diagnosis of bacterial infections given its quantitative capability and culture-independent approach. We validated and utilized a quantitative 16S MG assay to identify and quantify bacterial species in clinical samples from a wide spectrum of i...

ero A Abstract Facet joint septic arthritis is a rare cause of spinal infection in children with only four cases reported. The transmission pathway is believed to be haematogenous in 72% of cases. The authors present the case of a 13-year-old boy hospitalised for acute lumbosciatalgia, limp and fever, with pain upon palpation of the paravertebral muscles, a positive Laségue signal and elevated serum inflammatory markers. The initial lumbar computerised tomography (TC) scan revealed no abnormalities in the interapophyseal joints. After improving on treatment with analgesics and antibiotics, he was readmitted...

Here, we used an immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) hinge as an Ab lock to cover the TNFα-binding site of Infliximab by linking it with matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) -2/9 subst...

Conclusions: Of 163 patients who underwent retrograde percutaneous pinning of the distal femur, no patient developed septic arthritis and the incidence of pin site infections was 6.7% (11/163). Intra-articular retrograde percutaneous pinning of the distal femur is a safe technique with a low risk of septic arthritis. Level of Evidence: Level III—case-control study.
