Incidence of bacterial enteropathogens among diarrhea patients from tribal areas of Odisha.

Incidence of bacterial enteropathogens among diarrhea patients from tribal areas of Odisha. Jpn J Infect Dis. 2020 Feb 28;: Authors: Ranjan Nayak S, Kumar Nayak A, Laxmi Biswal B, Prasad Jena R, Kanta Samal S, Bhusan Pal B Abstract Infectious diarrheal diseases still account for high morbidity and mortality in the developing and underdeveloped countries. The present study was envisaged to document the etiology of bacterial enteropathogens in three tribal districts of Odisha from July, 2010 to September, 2013. A total of 1427 rectal swabs were collected and bacteriologically analyzed following standard procedure. Among 930 (65.2%) culture positive samples E.coli were 636 (44.6%), V.cholerae O1 were 146 (10.2%), Salmonella spp were 10 (0.7%), Shigella spp were 79 (5.5%) and Aeromonas spp were 59 (4.1%). From 729 Environmental Water samples (river, open well, Nala (Small stream), chua (shallow pit in river bed) 14 (1.9%) were V.cholerae non-O1 non-O139 and 13 (1.8%) were V.cholerae O1 strains. Demographic analysis showed age group>14-40 years was highly affected and diarrhea due to V.cholerae were mostly during rainy and post rainy seasons. All the enteropathogens were multidrug resistant, found throughout the study period. V.cholerae strains isolated were El Tor variant having classical, El Tor and Haitian ctxB, where Haitian ctxB was on rise and classical ctxB was dominating over El Tor ctxB. These findings indicate for active surveillance to monitor t...

In this study, we analyzed the distribution of Mycobacterium species, compare the diagnostic methods, and susceptibilities to anti-tuberculosis drugs of TB isolates. The aim was to document the current status and to provide a frame of reference for future studies. In this study, 278 Mycobacterium species isolated from 7,480 patients between September 2015 and June 2019 were included. Löwenstein-Jensen medium (LJ) and MGIT 960 were used for the isolation of strains. Susceptibility to 1st-line anti-tuberculosis drugs was determined. Positivity rates in clinical samples were as follows: 1.4% for direct microscopic acid-f...

CONCLUSION: The revised IWOS criteria are useful in Japanese patients, but could possibly be improved by modifying the criterion of presumed or probable OS. PMID: 32469694 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

mente Capasso The interconversion of CO2 and HCO3− is catalyzed by a superfamily of metalloenzymes, known as carbonic anhydrases (CAs, EC 4.2.1.1), which maintain the equilibrium between dissolved inorganic CO2 and HCO3−. In the genome of Escherichia coli, a Gram-negative bacterium typically colonizing the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms, the cyn operon gene includes the CynT gene, encoding for a β-CA, and CynS gene, encoding for the cyanase. CynT (β-CA) prevents the depletion of the cellular bicarbonate, which is further used in the reaction catalyzed by cyanase. A secon...

This study provides insights on the possible involvement of these seven missense mutations in colorectal tumors. The hyperactive forms could lead to an increased O-fucosylation of POFUT1 protein targets such as NOTCH receptors in CRC patients, thereby leading to a NOTCH signaling dysregulation. It is the first demonstration of gain-of-function mutations for this crucial glycosyltransferase, modulating NOTCH activity, as well as that of other potential glycoproteins.

Genome-wide association studies have demonstrated associations between susceptibility to psoriasis and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Part of the genetic susceptibility can be explained by the established susceptibility locus in the human leukocyte antigen complex on chromosome 6p21.3, as well as polymorphisms at the interleukin 12B (IL-12B), IL-23A, IL-23 receptor (IL-23R), tumor necrosis factor-a induced protein 3 (TNFAIP3), and TNIP1 (TNFAIP3 interacting protein 1) loci [1 –5]. Investigating susceptibility loci in patients with psoriasis vulgaris (PsV) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) may help to determine w...
