BACKGROUND: Blackwater fever (BWF), one of the complications of severe malaria, has recently re-emerged as a cause of severe anemia (SA) in African children. However, post-discharge morbidity in children with BWF has hitherto not been described. METHODS: This was a descriptive cohort study in which children, aged 0-5 years, admitted to Jinja Regional Referral Hospital with acute episodes of SA (Hb ≤ 5.0 g/dl) were followed up for 6 months after hospitalization...

BACKGROUND: Human-use probiotics have recently been associated with clinical infections and antibiotic resistance transfer, raising public concern over their safety. However, despite their extensive application in aquaculture and animal husbandry, the safety of animal-use probiotics remains poorly described. METHODS: We evaluated the safety of 92 animal-use probiotics from China. The pattern of spread of pathogens from probiotics and the consequent public health implications were also examined by conducting in-field genomic surveillance at two farms...

BACKGROUND: Influenza causes a substantial burden worldwide, and current seasonal influenza vaccine has suboptimal effectiveness. To develop better, more broadly protective vaccines, a more thorough understanding is needed of how antibodies that target the influenza virus surface antigens, hemagglutinin (HA; including head and stalk regions), and neuraminidase (NA), impact influenza illness and virus transmission. METHODS: We used a case-ascertained, community-based study of household influenza virus transmission set in Managua, Nicaragua...

BACKGROUND: Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage is a risk factor for developing bacterial meningitis. MATERIALS/METHODS: We analyzed episodes of community-acquired bacterial meningitis associated with CSF leakage from a prospective nationwide cohort study. RESULTS: CSF leakage was identified in 65 episodes of 2022 episodes (3%) in 53 patients. The cause of CSF leakage was identified in 49 of 65 episodes (75%), most and most commonly consisted of ear-nose-throat surgery (19 of 49 episodes [29%]) and remote head trauma (15 of 49 episodes [23%])...

Cross-reactivity should be considered when treating patients with a previous hypersensitivity reaction within the same class of antibiotics that share similar chemical structures. This case report describes a patient with severe hypersensitivity reaction to vancomycin who successfully tolerated a dalbavancin graded challenge.

BACKGROUND: In many settings, recent or prior injection drug use remain barriers to accessing direct-acting antiviral treatment (DAA) for hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. We examined longitudinal patterns of drug and alcohol use and injection equipment sharing among people with recent injecting drug use or receiving opioid agonist treatment (OAT) during and following DAA-based treatment. METHODS: SIMPLIFY and D3FEAT are phase IV clinical trials evaluating the efficacy of DAA among people with past six-month injecting drug use or receiving OAT through a network of 25 international sites...

BACKGROUND: Hospitalized immunocompromised (IC) adults with influenza may have worse outcomes than hospitalized non-immunocompromised adults. METHODS: We identified adults (≥18 years) hospitalized with laboratory-confirmed influenza during 2011-2015 seasons through CDC's Influenza Hospitalization Surveillance Network. IC patients had ≥1: HIV/AIDS, cancer, stem cell or organ transplantation, non-steroid immunosuppressive therapy, immunoglobulin deficiency, asplenia, or other rare conditions...

Among 20 highly treatment experienced people with HIV with extensive antiretroviral drug resistance and high levels of self-reported adherence, an inpatient 8-day directly observed therapy confirmed nonadherence as the major cause of virologic failure for 9/20 (45%) participants, preventing unnecessary regimen changes that could jeopardize future treatment options.

BACKGROUND: Women living with human immunodeficiency virus (WLHIV) have disproportionately high rates of squamous cell carcinoma of the anus compared with the general population of women. Anal high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSILs) precede anal cancer, and accurate studies of HSIL prevalence among WLHIV in the United States are lacking. METHODS: The AIDS Malignancy Consortium 084 study was a multicenter national trial to evaluate the prevalence of and risk factors for anal HSIL in a US cohort...

BACKGROUND: Encephalitis is associated with significant morbidity and mortality with unknown etiologies in the majority of patients. Large prognostic studies evaluating elderly patients are currently lacking. METHODS: Retrospective cohort of encephalitis cases in 19 hospitals from New Orleans, Louisiana and Houston, Texas between the years 2000 and 2017. RESULTS: A total of 340 adult (age ≥ 17 years) patients with confirmed encephalitis were enrolled, 194 (57%) had unknown etiologies...

BACKGROUND: Asymptomatic patients colonized with Clostridioides difficile are at risk of developing C. difficile infection (CDI), but factors associated with disease onset are poorly understood. Our aims were to identify predictors of hospital-onset CDI (HO-CDI) among colonized patients, and explore the potential benefit of primary prophylaxis to prevent CDI. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study in a tertiary academic institution. Colonized patients were identified by detecting the tcdB gene by PCR on a rectal swab...

In a matched case-control study where 24 cases developed Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) during the 2014 chikungunya outbreak in the French West Indies and 72 controls were blood donors who donated their blood at the same period, Chikungunya infection was a risk factor for GBS (OR 8.3, 95% CI 2.3-29.7, p=0.001).
