Debate on the compositions of influenza B in northern hemisphere seasonal influenza vaccines

ConclusionWhen applying quadrivalent influenza vaccines (QIVs) for vaccination, the recommendations of compositions for influenza B could be altered and assessed once in 3 or 4  years; when economic burden was considered intensively and TIVs were utilized, the recommended compositions for influenza B could be announced in April or May, rather than in February or March as now.

Publication date: Available online 25 January 2020Source: Microbiological ResearchAuthor(s): Shymaa Enany, Samira Zakeer, Ahmed A. SayedAbstractKlebsiella pneumoniae is a pathogenic bacterium that is responsible for a wide range of infections in humans. An increased rate of infections caused by multi-drug-resistant K. pneumoniae has been noted in the last two decades. The association between antimicrobial resistance and virulence is an important topic of study. Genomic tools have been used widely for the detection of virulence. In our study, we used proteomic analysis with mass spectrometry and bioinformatics tools to expl...

SahmAbstractObjectivesInfections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa are often difficult to treat. Knowledge of the risk of infection with resistant P. aeruginosa would allow more discriminatory prescribing of broad-spectrum antimicrobials. Using clinical isolates collected as part of the Study for Monitoring Antimicrobial Resistance Trends (SMART), we examined the activity of commonly used β-lactams, levofloxacin, and ceftolozane–tazobactam (C...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe widespread incidence of morbidity and mortality associated with opioid use disorder (OUD) has resulted in a national crisis. One component of this public health epidemic includes a lack of an adequately trained healthcare workforce to provide opioid case management, prescribing, and dispensing. The Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (Project ECHO) is a tele-mentoring, guided practice model, which provides knowledge exchange from specialists and subspecialists to enable primary care providers and clinicians to deliver best practice care for complex health conditions like OUD. Project EC...

Socio-economic (SE) development has resulted in increased prevalence of obesity across all social groups in developing countries that is contrary to the effects of rising SE status on prevalence of obesity in the developed world. Obesity is not only associated with metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, diabetes but is also a risk factor for cancer and is responsible for increased c...

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is concealing and suppressing information on the number one cause of severe, vaping-related health harm to youths in order to deceive the public into thinking that e-cigarettes are at the top of the list.In fact, the number one cause of severe, vaping-related health damage to youths is not electronic cigarettes, although you would not know that from reading the CDC's literature on youth vaping.The Rest of the StoryThe chief cause of substantial health harms to youth from vaping is actually not e-cigarettes. It is marijuana or THC vaping.The hundreds of youth who have bec...

Publication date: Available online 25 January 2020Source: Veterinary MicrobiologyAuthor(s): Mar Costa-Hurtado, Emili Barba-Vidal, Jaime Maldonado, Virginia AragonAbstractAntimicrobials have been commonly used to control bacterial diseases in farm animals. The efficacy of these drugs deterred the development of other control measures, such as vaccines, which are currently getting more attention due to the increased concern about antimicrobial resistance. Glässer’s disease is caused by Glaesserella (Haemophilus) parasuis and affects pork production around the world. Balance between colonization and immunity seems ...
