Lipase and factor V (but not viral load) are prognostic factors for the evolution of severe yellow fever cases.

CONCLUSIONS: YF acute severe cases show a generalised involvement of different organs (liver, spleen, heart, kidneys, intestines and pancreas), and different parameters were related to outcome. Factor V and lipase are independent variables associated with death, reinforcing the importance of hemorrhagic events due to fulminant liver failure and pointing to pancreatitis as a relevant event in the outcome of the disease.

Authors: Ridruejo E, Garcia-Agudo R, Mendizabal M, Aoufi-Rabih S, Dixit V, Silva M, Fabrizi F Abstract BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The advent of direct-acting antiviral agents promises to change the management of hepatitis C virus infection (HCV) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), a patient group in which the treatment of hepatitis C was historically challenging. We investigated the safety and efficacy of all-oral, interferon-free direct-acting antiviral agents for the treatment of hepatitis C in a 'real-world' cohort of patients with CKD. METHODS: We performed an observational single-arm multi-centre stud...

This study focused on the equatorial spread F (ESF) occurrence using ionogram data and IRI prediction taken across different longitude sectors, including the Jicamarca, Fortaleza, Ilorin, Chumphon and Kwajalein ionosonde stations. We have briefly discussed the varying range type spread F (RSF) occurrence features across these stations such as the duration, onset time and seasonal asymmetry. The largest seasonal average of the RSF occurrence percentage was recorded at the Ilorin station during the low solar activity, while the occurrence rate at the Chumphon and Kwajalein stations increases significantly with the solar flux...

Antimicrobial resistance (AR) is a public health issue since it limits the choices to treat infections by Escherichia coli in humans and animals. In Brazil, the ovine meat market has grown in recent years, but studies about AR in sheep are still scarce. Thus, this study aims to investigate the presence of AR in E. coli isolated from lambs during feedlot. To this end, feces from 112 lambs with 2 months of age, after weaning, were collected on the first day of the animals in the feedlot (day 0), and on the last day before slaughtering (day 42). Isolates were selected in MacConkey agar supplemented with 4 mg/L of ceftiofur an...

Cabbage Fusarium wilt (CFW) caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. conglutinans (FOC) is known to significantly affect yield and quality of cabbage worldwide. CFW was first detected in New York, US and has now spread to almost all cabbage-planting areas including a recent outbreak of the disease in China. However, it was unknown whether the FOC strains emerged in China differed from the strains in other areas of the world. From 2009-2018, we collected Chinese FOC isolates, and compared them to the races 1 and 2 strains in other areas to define their characteristics. Race tests indicated that most of the Chinese FOC strains be...

Routine surveillance and surveillance in response to influenza virus outbreaks in avian species in Vietnam in 2009–2013 resulted in the isolation of numerous H5N1 influenza viruses of clades 1.1.2, 2.3.2.1a, 2.3.2.1b, 2.3.2.1c, and 2.3.4.1. Consistent with other studies, we found that viruses of clade 2.3.2.1c were dominant in Vietnam in 2013 and circulated in the northern, central, and southern parts of the country. Phylogenetic analysis revealed reassortment among viruses of clades 2.3.2.1a, 2.3.2.1b, and 2.3.2.1c; in contrast, no reassortment was detected between clade 2.3.2.1 viruses and viruses of clades 1.1.2 o...
