Vogesella perlucida-induced bacteremia in an advanced-age patient: first case report.

BMC Infect Dis 2020 Sep 18;20(1):687. Epub 2020 Sep 18.

Background: Vogesella species are common aquatic, Gram-negative rod-shaped bacteria, originally described in 1997. Vogesella perlucida was first isolated from spring water in 2008. Furthermore, bacterial pathogenicity of Vogesella perlucida has never been reported. Here, we report the first case of rare Vogesella perlucida-induced bacteremia in an advanced-age patient with many basic diseases and history of dexamethasone abuse.

Case Presentation: A 71-year-old female was admitted with inflamed upper and lower limbs, rubefaction, pain and fever (about 40 °C). She had been injured in a fall at a vegetable market and then touched river snails with her injury hands. A few days later, soft tissue infection of the patient developed and worsened. Non-pigmented colonies were isolated from blood cultures of the patient. Initially, Vogesella perlucida was wrongly identified as Sphingomonas paucimobilis by Vitek-2 system with GN card. Besides, we failed to obtain an acceptable identification by the MALDI-TOF analysis. Finally, the isolated strain was identified as Vogesella perlucida by 16S rRNA gene sequences. In addition, the patient recovered well after a continuous treatment of levofloxacin for 12 days.

Conclusion: Traditional microbiological testing system may be inadequate in the diagnosis of rare pathogenic bacteria. Applications of molecular diagnostics techniques have great advantages in clinical microbiology laboratory. By using 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, we report the the first case of rare Vogesella perlucida-induced bacteremia.

Role of identified noncoding RNA in erectile dysfunction.

Andrologia 2020 Aug 22;52(7):e13596. Epub 2020 May 22.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common male sexual dysfunction and is closely related to many risk factors such as age, chronic diseases and mental disorder. Phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor (PDE5i) is recommended as the first-line medicine in therapy, but up to 35% of patients fail to this treatment. Unfortunately, the pathogenesis of ED is still poorly understood. Hence, it has reached the state that researchers should seek for new candidate biomarkers or therapeutic targets. Recent studies have reported that noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) such as microRNAs (miRNAs) and long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are involved in the pathogenesis process of ED, even in stem cell therapy. In this review, we aim to summarise the mechanisms and functions of identified ncRNAs that are associated with ED.
