CorbiAbstractThis manuscript presents three silver(I) complexes with fluoroanthranilic acid (fa) isomers, [Ag(4fa)]n, [Ag(5fa)]n and [Ag(6fa)]n, which were named as Ag4fa, Ag5fa and Ag6fa, respectively. The 1:1 metal/ligand molar composition of the complexes was determined by elemental, thermal and high-resolution mass...

Authors: Han D, Lee HY, Kim K, Kim T, Oh YM, Rhee CK Abstract Background: Little clinical information on high grade tuberculosis destroyed lung (TDL) is available. The aim of this study was to investigate the characteristics and healthcare utilization of high grade TDL patients, and compared the differences between acute exacerbation and healthcare burden according to inhaler compliance. Methods: This was an observational retrospective cohort study using the Korean Health Insurance Review and Assessment (HIRA) service database (2011-2015). Patients diagnosed with high grade TDL in 2011 were enrolled and reviewe...

Drug screening models have a vital role in the development of novel antimycobacterial agents which are urgently needed to tackle drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB). We recently established the larvae of the insect Galleria mellonella (greater wax moth) as a novel infection model for the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex. Here we demonstrate its use as a rapid and reproducible screen to evaluate antimycobacterial drug efficacy using larvae infected with bioluminescent Mycobacterium bovis BCG lux. Treatment improved larval survival outcome and, with the exception of pyrazinamide, was associated with a significant reduction in...

This test had moderate sensitivity and high specificity for EPTB, like that of Xpert MTB/RIF, especially for lymph node, chest wall, and purulent fluid samples.

Authors: Van Slambrouck J, Vlasselaers J, Devos B Abstract Peritoneal tuberculosis is a rare extrapulmonary manifestation of tuberculosis. Considering the diagnosis of peritoneal tuberculosis in a low prevalence setting can be vital for the further clinical management in selected patients.In a young male with migration background, presenting with generalised abdominal pain, computed tomography revealed ascites, omental and peritoneal thickening and enlarged mesentery lymph nodes. Computed tomography also revealed a distal ureteral calculus at the right vesico-ureteral junction. Diagnostic laparoscopy showed a nodul...

Measles, mumps, and tuberculosis—these are all diseases the general public has long disregarded as active threats. Yet, these highly infectious and potentially life-threatening diseases once considered eradicated have been resurfacing across the United States. Measles, for example, was declared eliminated in 2000 by the CDC, yet this year alone more than 1,200 individual cases have been confirmed in 30 states. This outbreak represents the greatest number of reported cases for the disease in the United States since 1992.1 While the ongoing anti-vaccination movement may not be the cause of these reappearanc...

We describe 2 cases of miliary tuberculosis in young children with clinically unexpected central nervous system involvement. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain should be considered part of the initial diagnostic workup for miliary tuberculosis in very young children.

Microbiologic confirmation of pediatric extrapulmonary tuberculosis remains challenging, leading to diagnostic delays. In our retrospective case series, real-time molecular testing (Xpert MTB/RIF) on respiratory and extrapulmonary specimens resulted in a more rapid diagnosis of extrapulmonary tuberculosis in a nonendemic, high resource setting.

Abstract Used as a ventilator for assisting victims of polio, the barospirator was described by Swedish physician-scientist Torsten Thunberg in 1924. An immediate predecessor of the iron lung of Philip Drinker, the barospirator fully encased the entire body. Cyclic air-pressure changes within the chamber achieved ventilation during equilibrations of intrapulmonary and ambient pressures. Pulmonary medicine innovator Alvan Leroy Barach used a modified barospirator for lung rest as a treatment of tuberculosis in the 1940s. Adverse effects included damage to patients' tympanic membranes. Despite its limited clinical s...
