Direct medical costs of urinary tract infections by Gram-negative bacilli resistant to beta-lactams in a tertiary care hospital in Medell ín, Colombia

Conclusion: Our results show a substantial increase in the direct medical costs of patients with urinary tract infections caused by beta-lactam-resistant Gram-negative bacilli (cephalosporins and carbapenems). This situation is of particular concern in endemic countries such as Colombia, where the high frequencies of urinary tract infections and the resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics can generate a greater economic impact on the health sector.

ConclusionIn this moment, focus on sexual ambiguity has been changed. Now there is a greater emphasis on a conservative approach and the delay of irreversible surgery until adulthood. That new approach allows the individualization of the patient and makes surgical decision once a gender identity is presented. Laparoscopic surgery has been found to be a tool for the adequate treatment that allows a complete visualization of the atrophic organs and gonads. Generating almost imperceptible scars in the long term and preventing possible malignant transformation in the future.

ConclusionOur findings suggest that curcumin has potential as an anticlostridial agent. More work is needed to further investigate the efficacy of curcumin as a standalone drug or as a supplement of current drugs of choice, as it has no antagonistic activities but might overcome their drawbacks.

S. pasteuri remains an extremely infrequent cause of human infection to date, namely bacteremia in an individual suffering acute myeloid leukemia, catheter-associated urinary tract infection in a patient receiving chemotherapy and endocarditis within a case series without specific clinical information. A...

Authors: Bassetti M, Giacobbe DR, Peghin M, Irani P Abstract Introduction: Antimicrobial resistance poses a substantial threat to global public health concern, since it decreases the probability of effectively treating an infection and increases risk of morbidity and mortality. Areas covered: In this review, the authors discuss the advantages and disadvantages of classical and novel trial designs for evaluating novel antibiotics for infections due to multidrug-resistant organisms (MDRO). An inductive literature search was performed using different keywords pertinent to the reviewed topics. Expert opinion: The need ...

Authors: Fillâtre P, Revest M, Tattevin P Abstract Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a severe form of hemorrhagic fever caused by a virus of the genus Nairovirus. The amplifying hosts are various mammal species that remain asymptomatic. Humans are infected by tick bites or contact with animal blood. CCHF has a broad geographic distribution and is endemic in Africa, Asia (in particular the Middle East) and South East Europe. This area has expanded in recent years with two indigenous cases reported in Spain in 2016 and 2018. The incubation period is short with the onset of symptoms in generally less tha...
