AbstractRecent studies show that rectal colonization with low-level ciprofloxacin-resistantEscherichia coli (ciprofloxacin minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) above the epidemiological cutoff point, but below the clinical breakpoint for resistance), i.e., in the range>  0.06–0.5 mg/L is an independent risk factor for febrile urinary tract infection after transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy (TRUS-B) of the prostate, adding to the other risk posed by established ciprofloxacin resistance inE. coli (MIC  >  0.5 mg/L) as currently defined. We aimed to identify the quinolone that by...

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewInfections and subsequent sepsis are an increasing cause of hospital admission and critical illness in the elderly population. The risk factors that predispose elderly patients to infections, such as comorbidities and frailty, also contribute to prolonged recovery times and subsequent mortality.Recent FindingsElderly patients may present with atypical symptoms such as delirium and remain afebrile thus delaying the diagnosis of infections. White blood cell count is not as useful in the diagnosis of infection as other biomarkers such as procalcitonin. Once an infection has begun, the elderly pati...

The objectives were to examine pregnancy outcomes in adolescent primigravida and to determine the effects of adolescent pregnancy on pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH). A retrospective analysis of pregnancy outcomes was carried out in 2440 adolescent primigravida, compared with 14,259 primigravida aged 20-29 years. The adolescents had significantly higher rates of maternal death, maternal heart disease, PIH, puerperal infection, chorioamnionitis, urinary tract infection, foetal anomaly, preterm delivery, low birth weight, low Apgar scores and stillbirth. Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that both old...
