Abstract Ensuring the successful inactivation of select agent material is critical for maintaining compliance with federal regulations and safeguarding laboratory personnel from exposure to dangerous pathogens. Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV), naturally transmitted by mosquitoes, is classified as a select agent by the CDC and USDA due to its potential to cause significant economic losses to the livestock industry and its demonstrated potential to emerge into naïve geographic areas. Herein we describe several effective inactivation procedures for RVFV infected mosquito samples. We also demonstrate the vaccine s...

, Norheim G Abstract Today's world is characterized by increasing population density, human mobility, urbanization, and climate and ecological change. This global dynamic has various effects, including the increased appearance of emerging infectious diseases (EIDs), which pose a growing threat to global health security.Outbreaks of EIDs, like the 2013-2016 Ebola outbreak in West Africa or the current Ebola outbreak in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), have not only put populations in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) at risk in terms of morbidity and mortality, but they also have had a significant impa...

We report the first known case of bacteremia due to A. octavius, detected in an elderly patient. A 71-year-old woman with a history of breast cancer presented with fever and cognitive impairment for more than three days. A. octavius was isolated in blood cultures, and only resistance to clindamycin was reported. Her general condition improved after treatment with metronidazole and she was discharged.

This study showed an establishment of the first reverse genetics for AMTV, a lack of stability of AMTV NSs proteins in human cells, and an IFN-β gene antagonist function of AMTV NSs proteins in murine cells. The AMTV can be a nonpathogen ic surrogate model for studying phleboviruses including RVFV.

This study's objective was to estimate the impact of climate, soil, elevation and land cover on the Coccidioides species’ ecological niche. This research used maximum entropy ecological niche modeling based on disease case data from 2015 to 2016. Results found mean temperature of the driest quarter, and barren, shrub, and cultivated land covers influential in characterizing the niche. In addition to hotspots in central California and Arizona, the Columbia Plateau ecoregion of Washington and Oregon showed more favorable conditions for fungus presence than surrounding areas. The identification of influential spatial dr...

Conclusions: Extrapulmonary coccidioidomycosis in children can be severe and spread to multiple sites and requires prolonged treatment. Non-Hispanics and those ≥10 years of age are more likely to experience severe disease, suggesting a need for early recognition and intervention in these populations.

Rapid onsite evaluation allows for triage for ancillary testing, including microbiologic cultures. We aimed to determine the etiology of granulomatous inflammation diagnosed by FNAB by correlating with culture results and clinical history.Materials and methodsA 16-year retrospective review of cases diagnosed as &ldqu...
