Psychosis in Borrelia burgdorferi infection - part II: case reports.

Psychosis in Borrelia burgdorferi infection - part II: case reports. Psychiatr Pol. 2019 Jun 30;53(3):641-653 Authors: Brodziński S, Nasierowski T Abstract In the second part of the article case reports of three patients were presented. All patientswere treated for Borrelia infection and all of them developed psychotic disorders. History of each patient was different, as well as the probability of causal relationship between neuroborreliosis and psychosis. The first case concerns a female patient with no former psychiatric history, who developed psychotic episode secondary to neuroborreliosis. Psychotic disorders resolved after antibiotic treatment. In the second case, a male patient was previously twice hospitalized in psychiatric ward due to psychosis. During the third psychiatric hospitalization suspicion of Lyme neuroborreliosis (LNB) was propounded. Patient's health state improved after combined therapy with antibiotics and antipsychotic drugs. Direct causal relationship between neuroborreliosis and psychosis is ambiguous. The third case concerns a male patient who was initially treated for LNB and tick-borne encephalitis in an infectious diseases ward. During the hospitalization he developed the first in life episode of mania with psychotic features. Second episode of psychosis occurred after a tick bite and a vaccination against tick-borne encephalitis. In this case, coexistence of many diverse factors results in many difficulties in estimating of...

Until now, there is no approved vaccine against the disease. Therefore, the present study was planned to design a novel multi-epitope vaccine against Shigella spp., the causative agents of the disease based on the immunoinformatic tools. For this end, firstly seven conserved antigens of the bacteria, including IpaA, IpaB, IpaC, IpaD, OmpC, OmpF and V...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of replacement maniçoba hay by spineless cactus on the performance, carcass characteristics, and meat quality of confined lambs. Thirty-two male lambs, with an average body weight of 20.8 ± 2.9 kg, were fed with different levels of spineless cactus in replacement for 0, 33, 66 or 100% of maniçoba hay (i.e. 0, 200, 400, 600 g kg−1 of dietary DM). The replacement maniçoba hay by spineless cactus did not influence dry matter intake (g d−1) and cold carcass weight (P > .05), but increased (P

GreenAbstractSince 2006, farmers in England have received new recommendations on best practice to manage lameness in sheep through a range of knowledge exchange activities. The adoption of each recommendation varied, but in 2013 approximately 50% of farmers reported treating all lame sheep within 3 days of onset of lameness (prompt treatment), 41% did not practice routine foot trimming, 50% culled sheep that had been lame and 14% vaccinated against footrot; all recommended best pract...

In this study, chimeric VLP were investigated displaying the 195 N-terminal amino acids derived from the glycoprotein E2 of the bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) on their surface. Isolation of the VLP from methylotrophic yeast Hansenula polymorpha was allowed upon co-expression of wild-type dS and a fusion protein composed of the BVDV-derived antigen N-terminally fused to the dS. It was shown the VLP could be purified by a process adapted from the production of a recombinant hepatitis B VLP vaccine. However, the process essentially depended on costly ultracentrifugation which is critical for low cost production. In novel ...

Molecular chaperone DnaK and GroEL were identified to be the common antigens of the three pathogenic Nocardia species in our previous studies. To evaluate the immune protective effect of two DNA vaccines encoding DnaK or GroEL against fish nocardiosis, hybrid snakehead were vaccinate...

Authors: Freitas C, Barranha R, Abreu T, Von Doellinger O Abstract Manic and hypomanic states associated with antidepressant treatments are relatively common; however, when specifically considering mirtazapine, those side effects are infrequent. The authors report a clinical case regarding a manic episode with dysphoric features in a patient with no personal or family previous psychiatric history. It began two weeks after starting treatment with mirtazapine up to 30 mg/day. This episode was treated discontinuing mirtazapine and initiating olanzapine (10 mg), with symptomatic remission. Mirtazapine has a specific ph...

Gotlib, Brian KnutsonAbstractAlthough behavioral sensitivity to reward predicts the onset and course of mania in bipolar disorder, the evidence for neural abnormalities in reward processing in bipolar disorder is mixed. To probe neural responsiveness to anticipated and received rewards in the context of bipolar disorder, we scanned individuals with remitted bipolar I disorder (n=24) and well-matched controls (n=24; matched for age and gender) using Functional Magnetic Resonance...
