Perceptions and feelings of young girls regarding vaccination against papillomavirus.
CONCLUSIONS: Girls seem to be barely involved in the vaccination process. However, this vaccination is based on the young girl/parents/physician trio. All healthcare professionals should be trained so as to have a scientifically valid speech on vaccination. Family physicians play a central part. Comprehensive and adequate information should be provided to girls and parents. PMID: 32771252 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Medecine et Maladies Infectieuses)

Fosfomycin, from susceptibility to resistance: impact of the new guidelines on breakpoints.
Authors: Farfour E, Degand N, Riverain E, Fihman V, Le Brun C, Péan-de-Ponfilly G, Muggeo A, Jousset A, Piau C, Lesprit P Abstract The fosfomycin breakpoint using the disc diffusion method (DDM) changed in the 2019 CA-SFM/EUCAST guidelines v2 (24 mm versus 19 mm). We assessed its impact on categorization of Enterobacterales recovered from urine samples in emergency departments. A total of 7,749 and 2,348 strains were tested using the DDM and the broth microdilution method (BMD), respectively. The DDM with the 19-mm breakpoint was in accordance with the BMD. Using the 24-mm breakpoint, the overa...
