Aetiology of acute diarrhoea and antimicrobial usage among children aged under five years at health centres in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia.

Aetiology of acute diarrhoea and antimicrobial usage among children aged under five years at health centres in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia. Trop Doct. 2020 Mar 29;:49475520912558 Authors: Abera B, Hailu T, Beza L, Mulu W, Yizengaw E, Kibret M Abstract The aetiology of diarrhoea with Cryptosporidium species and pathogenic bacteria has not been identified in the Ethiopian primary healthcare system. Thus, antibiotic consumption for unconfirmed pathogenic diarrhoea is not infrequent. A total of 344 children aged

Authors: Desilets A, Soulières D Abstract INTRODUCTION: Programmed death 1 (PD-1) blockade has changed the therapeutic landscape of recurrent or metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (R/M HNSCC) with convincing overall response rates and overall survival benefits when compared to chemotherapy alone. The toxicity profile of pembrolizumab appears to be similar to that of other PD-1 or PD-L1 inhibitors, with frequent diarrhoea, hypothyroidism or cutaneous rash cases, and rare cases of grade 3 to 5 pneumonitis.Areas covered: In this article, the pharmacokinetics and mechanism of action of pembrolizuma...

CotE is a coat protein that is present in the spores of Clostridium difficile, an obligate anaerobic bacterium and a pathogen that is a leading cause of antibiotic-associated diarrhoea in hospital patients. Spores serve as the agents of disease transmission, and CotE has been implicated in their attachment to the gut epithelium and subsequent colonization of the host. CotE consists of an N-terminal peroxiredoxin domain and a C-terminal chitinase domain. Here, a C-terminal fragment of CotE comprising residues 349 – 712 has been crystallized and its structure has been determined to reveal a core eight-stranded β -...

Conclusions: The commonness of undesirable experiences attributed to daily ingestion of 60 mg iron and 0.4 mg folic acid and their deterrence to longer supplementation durations suggest the need for considering a weekly intermittent regimen for some antenatal women in such set-ups. Our study demonstrated that potentially, more counselling on nausea as a side effect might be critical in advancing iron-folate supplementation compliance.

Authors: Duran G, Cruz R, Simoes AR, Barros F, Balboa E, Giráldez JM, Bernárdez B, Anido U, Candamio S, López-López R, Carracedo Á, Lamas MJ Abstract We studied the predictive value for response and toxicity of functional polymorphisms in genes involved in the oxaliplatin/fluorouracil pathway in colorectal cancer patients. One hundred and twenty-seven (127) patients were treated with curative intended surgery followed by adjuvant chemotherapy with FOLFOX (fluorouracil, leucovorin and oxaliplatin) regimen. The median age was 65.53 (27-80) years (66.9% male, 59.1% rectum). The media...

Authors: Mateu L, Fernández-Rivas G, Sopena N Abstract Clostridioides difficile is the main cause of healthcare-associated diarrhoea in adults. The incidence of C.difficile infection (CDI) has increased in recent years. The risk of recurrence of CDI is 15%-25% in a first episode and this risk is increased in subsequent episodes. Toxigenic culture and cytotoxicity tests are the reference techniques for the microbiological diagnosis of CDI. These are laborious and slow techniques and therefore they have been replaced in clinical practice by the application of a multi-step algorithm that includes the detection ...
