Risk factors for Blastocystis infection in HIV/AIDS patients with highly active antiretroviral therapy in Southwest China

ConclusionsA high prevalence ofBlastocystis infection was found in HIV/AIDS patients in Tengchong. Poor hygienic habits, the interaction of HIV virus load and CD4+ T cell count were identified as main risk factors for infection. These results will help us to develop efficient control strategies to intervene with and prevent the occurrence ofBlastocystis among HIV-infected individuals.

This study included 227 patients with type 2 diabetes who were admitted to the Department of Nephrology of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army General Hospital from May 2016 to January 2018 and underwent pathological diagnosis by renal biopsy. Anti-PLA2R antibodies were detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in this population. According to the pathological results, the participants were divided into an IMN group and non-membranous nephropathy (non-MN) group. The clinical characteristics were analyzed, the diagnostic ability of anti-PLA2R antibodies was evaluated, and the receiver operating characteristic (RO...

AbstractA cross-sectional study was conducted to determine the seroprevalence ofBrucella spp. andLeptospira spp. and risk factors of exposure in cattle in three zones with varying land use types and wildlife –livestock interactions. Five villages were selected purposively; two in areas with intensive livestock–wildlife interactions (zone 1), another two in areas with moderate livestock–wildlife interactions (zone 2) and one in areas where wildlife–livestock interactions are rarer (zone 3). Sera samples were collected from 1170 cattle belonging to 390 herds in all the zones and tested for antibodies ...
