Successful Treatment of Serious Meningitis Caused by Extremely Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacter cloacae (MIC & ge;16mg/L) with i.v. Meropenem and i.v. Amikacin Plus Intraventricular Amikacin
Yes. However, very probably not because of the novel coronavirus that has appeared in China. This seems to be front page headlines in every media outlet on the planet, and the World Health Organization has convened a meeting to decide whether to declare an official Global Health Emergency.This sort of flapdoodle happens every time a novel pathogen appears. Back when I lived in the Hub of the Universe a mosquito-borne disease called West Nile virus appeared (having formerly been large confined to, yes, west of the Nile). For weeks, every time a new case was identified it would be on the front page of the Boston Globe....

CONCLUSIONS: Mortality rates from HIV-associated meningitis in SSA are very high under routine care conditions. Better strategies are needed to reduce mortality from HIV-associated meningitis in the region. PMID: 31957332 [PubMed - in process]
(University of Adelaide) The results of the B Part of It study -- the largest meningococcal B herd immunity study ever conducted -- are published today in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Cryptococcal meningitis (CM) is the most common fungal infection of the central nervous system and has high morbidity and mortality. Almost studies about prognostic factors have largely focused on the immunoco...
Listeria monocytogenes is a foodborne bacterium that causes gastroenteritis, meningitis, or abortion. Listeria induces its internalization (entry) into some human cells through interaction of the bacterial surface protein InlB with its host receptor, the Met tyrosine kinase. InlB and Met promote entry through stimulation of localized actin polymerization and exocytosis. How actin cytoskeletal changes and exocytosis are controlled during entry is not well understood. Here, we demonstrate important roles for the host GTPase Arf1 and its effectors AP1 and PICK1 in actin polymerization and exocytosis during InlB-dependent upta...
[Vanguard] In recent times, the number of people coming down with kidney disease has been on the increase and many reasons have been adduced to explain the rise in number of cases. Chief among the reasons are the rise in cases of diabetes and high blood pressure; which experts say, increase the risk of chronic kidney disease. However, one disease which experts say could lead to kidney failure, respiratory disease, meningitis, liver failure and even death if left untreated, is little known leptospirosis, considered th
