Analysis of entomological indices for transmission of Japanese encephalitis in Malkangiri district, Odisha State, east central India during 2015-2019
Pathog Glob Health. 2022 May 2:1-7. doi: 10.1080/20477724.2022.2071051. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThere have been repeated episodes of the outbreak of Japanese encephalitis (JE) in Malkangiri district of Odisha State in the recent past. In the current study, we aimed to assess the entomological parameters of JE vectors in the district. Prevalence of JE vector species, their per man hour density (PMHD), dusk index (DI), human blood index (HBI), infection status and other factors responsible for transmission of JE were assessed over 5 years (2015-2019). Culex vishnui was the predominant JE vector species (32.0%) collecte...

Investigating the interrelatedness of clinical and non-clinical parameters affecting outcomes in COVID-19 patients: a retrospective study
In this study, a number of non-clinical as well as the clinical parameters were investigated for their role in adverse progression of the disease in patients admitted to intensive care unit (ICU) in a private tertiary hospital in Peshawar. The prevalence of comorbidities hypertension and diabetes as well as mortality was higher in age group of 70-79 years. Dyspnea was significantly linked to sepsis, invasive ventilation, and mortality; its late presentation, i.e. 15 to 20 days was significantly associated with mortality (p-value < 0.02). Acute kidney injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome were found to be the mo...
