A syndrome-based approach to antimicrobial stewardship in an Arizona skilled nursing facilityMoving the needle through quality improvement. American journal of infection control 48(12): 1537-1539
In 2015, an intervention to reduce unnecessary antibiotic prescribing for suspect urinary tract infection (UTI) was implemented in an Arizona skilled nursing facility. • Intervention included use of a 48[HYPHEN]hour enhanced observation protocol instead of urine culturing in low infection likelihood scenarios (eg, confusion without localizing signs of infection) and monthly feedback to providers on culturing and prescribing patterns. • In the 2 years following implementation of the intervention, antibiotic prescribing for suspect UTIs decreased by 85%, and C. difficile incidence by 86%, with no associated uroseps...

What Distinguishes Childhood Masturbation from Other Potential Diagnostic Entities?
Discussion “Childhood masturbation (CM) is defined as self-stimulation of the genitalia in a prepubescent child.” CM is normal sexual behavior and can be noted at all ages including infancy. It becomes very common after puberty. It is one of the most common sexual behaviors. CM can resemble the same adult masturbatory activity including flushing, sweating, muscular contracting and breath holding or tachypnea. However in younger children these changes are not recognized, are interpreted differently or infants and young children may also have different activities. “…(1)stereotyped posturing of the lo...

Architecture and function of human uromodulin filaments in urinary tract infections
Uromodulin is the most abundant protein in human urine, and it forms filaments that antagonize the adhesion of uropathogens; however, the filament structure and mechanism of protection remain poorly understood. We used cryo–electron tomography to show that the uromodulin filament consists of a zigzag-shaped backbone with laterally protruding arms. N-glycosylation mapping and biophysical assays revealed that uromodulin acts as a multivalent ligand for the bacterial type 1 pilus adhesin, presenting specific epitopes on the regularly spaced arms. Imaging of uromodulin-uropathogen interactions in vitro and in patient uri...
