MYCOBACTERIUM CHIMAERA INFECTIONS AFTER CARDIOVASCULAR SURGERY: LESSONS FROM A GLOBAL OUTBREAK. Trans Am Clin Climatol Assoc. 2019;130:136-144 Authors: Diekema DJ Abstract A global outbreak of invasive Mycobacterium chimaera infections has been associated with exposure to certain heater-cooler devices (HCDs) used during cardiopulmonary bypass. Outbreak investigations have shown that these HCDs harbor M. chimaera in water circuits and generate bio-aerosols in the operating room, leading to airborne transmission to patients during surgery. Whole genome sequencing data support a common-source outbreak ori...

In this study, participatory rural appraisal techniques (group discussion) and participatory active disease follow-ups were employed to investigate GTP outbreaks in Kanam LGA with the objective of understanding the epidemiology and estimating the financial impact of the disease amongst the farmers. Skin scabs were collected from goats with nodular pox-like lesions during field observation. All the respondents that participated in this study had at one point or another had cases of goat pox in their flock; only about 33% of them sought veterinary services and had tried to manage the disease medically. Morbidity and mortalit...

Aquadro, Eric AlaniGlobal outbreaks of drug-resistant fungi such as Candida auris are thought to be due at least in part to excessive use of antifungal drugs. Baker’s yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae has gained importance as an emerging opportunistic fungal pathogen that can cause infections in immunocompromised patients. Analyses of over 1000 S. cerevisiae isolates are providing rich resources to better understand how fungi can grow in human environments. A large percentage of clinical S. cerevisiae is...

Publication date: Available online 13 September 2019Source: Preventive Veterinary MedicineAuthor(s): Emily G. Hudson, Victoria J. Brookes, Salome Dürr, Michael P. WardAbstractAustralia is free of canine rabies, however northern regions ― such as the Northern Peninsula Area (NPA), Queensland ― are at risk of an incursion from nearby rabies-infected Indonesian islands. Early detection and reactive vaccination is the current Australian policy to eradicate an incursion. Early detection in this region is challenging, so pre-emptive vaccination might be an effective strategy. The NPA dog population also has a heterogeno...

This study was accomplished to test the performance of Geographic Object-Based Image Analysis (GEOBIA) TreeNet for discerning insect-infested forests induced by defoliators from healthy forests using Landsat 8 OLI and ancillary data in the broadleaved mixed Hyrcanian forests. Moreover, it has studied mutual associations between the intensity of forest defoliation and the severity of forest fires under TerraClimate-derived climate hazards by analyzing panel data models within the TreeNet-derived insect-infested forest objects. The TreeNet optimal performance was obtained after building 333 trees with a sensitivity of 93.7% ...
