Credit: Joyce Chimbi/IPSBy Joyce ChimbiNairobi, Kenya, Oct 25 2021 (IPS) One morning in 2016, Lillian Nekesa’s 3-year-old woke up with flu-like classic symptoms of malaria. This was not Kevin’s first encounter with the killer disease. Kevin was nonetheless not immediately rushed to Busia County Referral Hospital for advanced treatment in keeping with his severe symptoms. Nekesa rushed him to a village dispensary because the referral hospital is an hour’s walk away fr...

Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) including microRNAs (miRs) and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged as key regulators of gene expression in immune cells development and function. Their expression is altered in different physiological and disease conditions, hence making them attractive targets for the understanding of disease etiology and the development of adjunctive control strategies, especially within the current context of mitigated success of control measures deployed to eradicate these diseases. In this review, we summarize our current understanding of the role of ncRNAs in the etiology and control of major human tr...

Rifamycin derivatives, such as rifampicin, have potent antibiotic activity and have long been used in the clinic as mainstay components for the treatment of tuberculosis, leprosy, and AIDS-associated mycobacterial infections. However, the extensive usage of these antibiotics has resulted in the rapid development of bacterial resistance. The resistance mechanisms mainly include mutations of the rifamycin target RNA polymerase of bacteria and enzymatic modifications of rifamycin antibiotics. One modification is the recently characterized rifamycin degradation catalyzed by Rox enzymes, which belong to the widely occurring fla...

Abstract A common technique used to differentiate bacterial species and to determine evolutionary relationships is sequencing their 16S ribosomal RNA genes. However, this method fails when organisms exhibit high similarity in these sequences. Two such strains that have identical 16S rRNA sequences are Mycobacterium indicus pranii (MIP) and Mycobacterium intracellulare. MIP is of significance as it is used as an adjuvant for protection against tuberculosis and leprosy; in addition, it shows potent anti-cancer activity. On the other hand, M. intracellulare is an opportunistic pathogen and causes severe respiratory i...

Abstract Reports of simultaneous infections and neoplasms in patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) are occasionally seen in the literature. However, coexistent lymphoma with tuberculosis, and Kaposi sarcoma (KS) with tuberculosis occurring in the same lymph node is rare. Coexistent lesions pose diagnostic difficulties. In this article, we report two HIV-positive patients from Zimbabwe who displayed KS and tuberculosis; KS and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma in the same lymph node. We found only one similar case presentation in the literature, which was reported in India.
