Comparing mortality between positive and negative blood culture results: an inverse probability of treatment weighting analysis of a multicenter cohort, BMC Infectious Diseases
Conclusions: Culture-positive sepsis patients had comparable early mortality but worse late mortality than culture-negative sepsis patients in this cohort. Persistent Staphylococcal bacteremia may have contributed to the increased late mortality. (Source: Current Awareness Service for Health (CASH))

Amid COVID, potentially avoidable hospitalizations for other conditions fell far more for whites than Blacks
During the first six months of the pandemic, as people attempted to stay away from hospitals caring for those sick with COVID-19, potentially avoidable hospitalizations for non-COVID-19 –related conditions fell far more among white patients than Black patients, according to a new study that looked at admissions to UCLA Health hospitals.The findings indicate that the COVID-19 crisis has exacerbated existing racial health care disparities and suggest that during the pandemic, African Americans may have had worse access than whites to outpatient care that could have helped prevent deterioration of their non –COVID...

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...
