Age-Stratified Risk of Critical Illness in Young Children Presenting to the Emergency Department with Suspected Influenza

To investigate the risk of critical illness by age group among young children without a chronic condition presenting to the emergency department (ED) with suspected influenza.

Here, we analyze the impact of helminth infections on the efficacy of vaccinations using Litomosoides sigmodontis-infected mice. Concurrent helminth infection reduces the quantity and quality of antibody responses to vaccination against seaso...

GaoSummarySince 2013, H7N9 avian influenza viruses (AIVs) have caused more than 1,600 human infections, posing a threat to public health. An emerging concern is whether H7N9 AIVs will cause pandemics among humans. Molecular analysis of hemagglutinin (HA), which is a critical determinant of interspecies transmission, shows that the current H7N9 AIVs are still dual-receptor trop...

Baker, Sheli R. Radoshitzky, Jens H. Kuhn, Andrew MehleSummaryAll viruses balance interactions between cellular machinery co-opted to support replication and host factors deployed to halt the infection. We use gene correlation analysis to perform an unbiased screen for host factors involved in influenza A virus (FLUAV) infection. Our screen identifies the cellular factor epidermal growth factor recepto...

In this study, we demonstrate a simple and rapid strategy for visual detection of multiple strains of IAVs (H1 to H16 subtypes) using peptide nucleic acid (PNA) as a biosensor and unmodified gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) as a reporter. The design principle of the assay is based on the color change on account of free PNA-induced aggregation of AuNPs in the presence of non-complementary viral RNA sequence and vice-versa. The assay could detect IAV RNA with a visual limit of detection of 2.3 ng. The quantification of RNA with a considerable accuracy on a simple spectrophotometer was achieved on plotting the PNA-induced colorim...

Conclusions: In many cases, pediatric AOM was found to constitute a respiratory polymicrobial infection. Multiplex PCR was useful to detect multiple respiratory viruses and bacteria in AOM. To understand intractable AOM, further studies regarding the clinical features of each viral and bacterial coinfection are required.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe goal of this review is to evaluate the role of inhibiting the synthesis of lipoproteins when there is no or little residual LDL-receptor function as in patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia. Lomitapide is administered orally once a day while mipomersen is given by subcutaneous injection once a week. Lomitapide inhibits microsomal triglyceride transfer protein while mipomersen is an antisense oligonucleotide directed against apoB100.Recent FindingsThe pivotal registration trials for lomitapide and mipomersen were published in 2013 and 2010, respectively. More recently published...

IL-33 is a member of the IL-1 cytokine family and constitutively expressed in endothelial cells and epithelial cells exposed to stimuli. IL-33 was identified as a ligand of the IL-1 receptor family member ST2L. IL-33 activates group2 innate immune cells, mast cells, eosinophils, basophils, NKT cells, dendritic cells, and neutrophils [1]. IL-33 can enhance the Th2 immune reaction to promote cytokines, and it also functions as a nuclear factor to suppress or enhance NF- κB function [2]. Recent studies showed that IL-33 is involved in anti-viral reactions, such as airway infection with influenza virus or parainfluenza v...
