Publication date: Available online 19 February 2020Source: Microbial PathogenesisAuthor(s): Ali Dalir Ghaffari, Abdolhossein Dalimi, Fatemeh Ghaffarifar, Majid PirestaniAbstractToxoplasmosis, caused by Toxoplasma gondii, is a common parasitic disease, affecting almost one-third of the world's population. Currently, there are no effective treatments for inhibiting the formation of chronic tissue cysts in infected hosts. Thus, the production of appropriate vaccines against this pathogen is an important goal to avoid toxoplasmosis. considering the role of rhoptry antigens like ROP16 in virulence and satisfactory immunogenicit...

While the burden of invasive GAS infections is elusive to assess in the MENA region, the GAS prevalence ranged from 2.5% to up 42.4% in pharyngitis patients and from 2.4% to up 35.4% in healthy ca...

Authors: Ng JK, Chan GC, Chow KM, Fung W, Pang WF, Law MC, Leung CB, Li PK, Szeto CC Abstract BACKGROUND: There is an increasing number of elderly patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) who could not perform dialysis exchange themselves and require assistance. We examine the outcome of Chinese CAPD patients who required helper-assisted dialysis and compare the outcome between different types of helper. METHODS: We reviewed 133 incident patients on helper-assisted CAPD and 266 incident patients who performed self-CAPD exchanges (self-peritoneal dialysis (PD) group). Outcome measures include...
