Mycotic aortic and left iliac ruptured aneurysm due to Escherichia Coli: a case report and literature overview.

We report the case of a patient who developed a mycotic aortic and ruptured left iliac aneurysm due to E. Coli. The patient developed a secondary aortic graft infection due to a mesenteric ischemia with fecal peritonitis. A literature overview of the current knowledge on mycotic aortic aneurysms specifically due to E. Coli is discussed including the clinical characteristics of patients, the management of the disease and the post-operative outcomes. PMID: 32253984 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Biological denitrification is a promising and green technology for air pollution control. To investigate the nitric oxide reductase (NOR) that dominates NO reduction efficiency in biological purification, the heterologous prokaryotic expression system of the norB gene, which encodes the core peptide of the catalytic reduction structure in the NOR from Achromobacter denitrificans strain TB, was constructed in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3). Results showed that the 1218 bp-long norB gene was expressed at the highest level under 1.0 mM IPTG for 5 h at 30 °C, and the relative expression a...

Authors: Ueda Y, Kawai Y, Shokoku G, Kuroda K, Kawamura K, Ono T, Tokioka K, Ohe T Abstract Superior mesenteric venous thrombosis (SMVT), which results from various etiologies, including coagulation disorders, can be diagnosed early using advanced imaging technology. However, few reports have described the nonsurgical treatment of acute peritonitis caused by SMVT. We encountered a young woman whose history included abdominal pain and daily oral contraceptives and who presented with acute peritonitis caused by SMVT. We administered nonsurgical treatment that included thrombolysis and anticoagulation for the peritoni...

Abstract Typhoid fever is the result of a human host-restricted Salmonella enteric serotype typhi infection that causes enteric fever. Around 21 million people contract typhoid annually, with Pakistan's inhabitants at most risk amongst Asian countries where typhoid remains prevalent. Decades of indiscriminate antibiotic usage has driven the evolution of multidrug-resistant strains and more recently, extensively drug-resistant (XDR) strains of Salmonella enteric serotype typhi. Current reports of extensively drug-resistant typhoid fever outbreak in Pakistan are not only a major concern for Pakistan but also for hea...

This study is aimed at obtaining the pathway in the microbial tumorigenesis of PC. Microarray datasets GSE27890, GSE46234, and GSE17610 were downloaded from the GEO (Gene Expression Omnibus) database. Differential analysis was performed for every single gene chip using the R software package ("Limma" package), and functional enrichment analyses were carried out by DAVID (Database for Annotation, Visualization and Integrated Discovery). The PPI (protein-protein interaction) network was constructed with the Search Tool for the Retrieval of Interacting Genes (STRING). The survival analysis was performed by GEPIA and...

Worldwide use of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCVs) had reduced the incidence of pneumonia and invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) in children.1,2 Despite increasing vaccine coverage and a reduction in the prevalence of IPD, Streptococcus pneumoniae remains a significant cause of non-Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) in children.3 HUS is characterized by the presence of the clinical triad of microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and acute kidney injury.

This paper presents a CMOS ion-sensitive-field-effect-transistor (ISFET) array with superior offset distribution tolerance, resolution and linearity for long-term bacterial metabolism monitoring. A floating gate ISFET is adopted as the sensing front end to maximize ion sensitivity and support ultra-long-term measurement. To solve the DC offset issue induced by trapped chargers and drifts in each ISFET sensor, a complementary readout scheme with column offset compensation is proposed. P-type and N-type source followers are combined to cover a wide range of input DC offsets while maintaining small area and high linearity. Th...
