Screening for triazole resistance in clinically significant Aspergillus species; report from Pakistan

ConclusionTriazole resistance could not be detected amongst clinicalAspergillus isolates from the South of Pakistan. However, environmental strains remain to be tested for a holistic assessment of the situation. This study will set precedence for future periodic antifungal resistance surveillance in our region onAspergillus isolates.

Authors: Khamis F, Al Rashidi B, Al-Zakwani I, Al Wahaibi AH, Al Awaidy ST Abstract Objectives: We sought to identify the epidemiological characteristics of the first case series of patients with COVID-19 in Oman. Methods: We included national surveillance data of patients with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 from 24 February to 17 April 2020. Analyses were performed using descriptive and univariate statistics. Results: Of the 1304 patients studied, the mean age was 37.0±13.0 years old, 80.3% were males, and 35.8% were Omanis. The other mostly affected nationalities were Indian (29.1%), Bangladeshi (20...

Conclusions: Negative ICS beliefs are associated with higher number of oral steroid courses. The association between CAM endorsement and asthma control is varied, but mostly in favor of improved control. Financial difficulties may make CAM use more likely.

Authors: Multani PK, Modi R, Basu S Abstract PURPOSE: To investigate recurrence patterns following anti-tubercular therapy (ATT) in different anatomical presentations of ocular tuberculosis (OTB). METHODS: Retrospective analysis of clinically diagnosed OTB patients divided anatomically into groups A (anterior + intermediate uveitis) and B (posterior + panuveitis). Recurrence was defined as reappearance of intraocular inflammation in a quiescent eye following completion of at least 6-months ATT. Anatomical sites of recurrence were compared to that of presentation. RESULTS: No significant difference in post-A...
