Lyme Borreliosis in Children: A Tertiary Referral Hospital–Based Retrospective Analysis
This study aims to estimate the incidence of LB among children with a clinical suspicion for Lyme in a tertiary referral center in the Netherlands. Patient chart data on medical history, clinical signs and symptoms, diagnostic test results and diagnoses were collected using standardized case record forms. Patients were categorized based on clinical and laboratory findings using a modified, previously published classification system. We included 325 children, with a median age of 11.9 years, of whom 61.8% were female. LB was diagnosed in 38 of the referred children (11.7%). However, of the 85 patients who were specifically ...

Potential Impact of Changes in the Schedule for Primary Diphtheria-Tetanus Toxoids-Pertussis Immunization as Control Strategy for Pertussis
Conclusions: Our work highlights the use of mathematical modeling to quantify the benefits of the existing vaccination schedules and the strategies that could be implemented to improve their compliance. Our results indicated that the 6–10–14 weeks is the best schedule option and that the Belgium vaccination campaign significantly reduced the incidence of severe cases.

Prevalence of Group B Streptococcus in Pregnant Women in Iran: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
Conclusions: The results of this study indicate that GBS screening measures and chemoprophylaxis guidelines concerning GBS infections must be established for pregnant women in Iran, and these guidelines must provide guidance for obstetricians, midwives and neonatologists on the prevention of GBS infections.

Cerebrospinal Fluid Cathelicidin Correlates With the Bacterial Load and Outcomes in Childhood Bacterial Meningitis
Background: Large cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) bacterial load in bacterial meningitis (BM) relates to poor outcome. However, the antimicrobial peptide cathelicidin seems important to host defense. We studied how cathelicidin concentrations and bacterial load in CSF relate in childhood BM and to what extent they may predict the disease outcome. Methods: The patient data originated from a large prospective clinical trial in Latin America in 1996–2003 in which the CSF samples were collected on admission (CSF1) and 12–24 hours later (CSF2). The cathelicidin concentrations were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorb...

A Phase II/III Trial of Lopinavir/Ritonavir Dosed According to the WHO Pediatric Weight Band Dosing Guidelines
Background: The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends weight band dosing of antiretrovirals for children. Data are limited describing drug exposure/safety of lopinavir/ritonavir using WHO weight band dosing. Methods: International Maternal Pediatric Adolescent AIDS Clinical Trials (IMPAACT) P1083 was a phase II/III trial assessing the pharmacokinetics (PK) and short-term safety, tolerance and efficacy of lopinavir/ritonavir in human immunodeficiency virus–infected children 3–25 kg dosed according to WHO weight bands, with liquid solution or meltrex extrusion tablets. The main PK target was an a...

Optimal Antiretroviral Prophylaxis in Infants at High Risk of Acquiring HIV: A Systematic Review
Conclusions: The limited available evidence suggests that using combination ARV regimens in high-risk infants reduces intrapartum transmission and that using prolonged prophylaxis in breastfed infants reduces breastfeeding transmission rates. However, the additional benefit of combination or prolonged regimens in the context of maternal ARV therapy remains unclear. (Source: The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal)

The North Wind and the Sun: Pediatric Antimicrobial Stewardship Program Combining Restrictive and Persuasive Approaches in Hematology-Oncology Ward and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Unit
Background: The Japanese government’s goal for the reduction of antimicrobial consumption is two-thirds of the 2013 rate by 2020. While the antimicrobial stewardship programs (ASPs) are essential in health care facilities, ASP data on pediatric hematology-oncology and hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) patients are limited. Our aim was to evaluate the impact of restrictive and persuasive ASP on immunocompromised children. Methods: The ASP for hematology-oncology and HSCT patients at Tokyo Metropolitan Children’s Medical Center was assessed. Phase 1 was a postprescriptive review of carbapenem conduct...

Safety of Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapy in Children
Conclusions: Use of oxacillin during OPAT was associated with higher rate of AD.

Evaluation of the Clinical Utility of a Real-time PCR Assay for the Diagnosis of Streptococcus pneumoniae Bacteremia in Children: A Retrospective Diagnostic Accuracy Study
Conclusion: This study demonstrates the limited utility of blood PCR testing for S. pneumoniae in pediatric patients without radiographic evidence pneumonia or empyema. Moreover, we report that PCR may be a useful diagnostic tool when blood cultures are negative because of antimicrobial therapy before sampling. Given that the incidence of pneumococcal disease has decreased considerably in recent years, justification of S. pneumoniae PCR requisition is necessary. Hence, new guidelines for pediatric pneumococcal blood PCR testing have been introduced at the Irish Meningitis and Sepsis Reference Laboratory. (Source: The Ped...

Low Varicella Zoster Virus Seroprevalence Among Young Children in the Democratic Republic of the Congo
Conclusion: Our data suggest that VZV is circulating in DRC, and seropositivity is low among children 6–59 months.

Conclusion: In children with AML, adenovirus infection was rare and typically not associated with severe disease, even without specific treatment. However, disseminated and fatal disease can occur in this population. Further investigations are needed to identify pediatric AML patients at particular risk for severe adenovirus infection and to determine optimal treatment approaches in these patients.
