Prevention of Recurrent Acute Otitis Media in Children Through the Use of PS7, a Target-Specific Probiotic Strain.

Nutrients 2019 Feb 12;11(2). Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Department of Nutrition and Food Science, Complutense University of Madrid, 28040 Madrid, Spain.

Acute otitis media (AOM) is one of the most common bacterial infections in children. Empiric antibiotherapy leads to increasing antimicrobial resistance rates among otopathogens and may impair the correct development of the microbiota in early life. In this context, probiotics seem to be an attractive approach for preventing recurrent AOM (rAOM) through the restoration of the middle ear and nasopharyngeal microbiota. Read More

Diverse Components of Resistance to Infection and Fumonisin Contamination in Four Maize Recombinant Inbred Families.

Toxins (Basel) 2019 Feb 1;11(2). Epub 2019 Feb 1.

School of Integrative Plant Science, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA.

The fungus can infect maize ears, causing Fusarium ear rot (FER) and contaminating the grain with fumonisins (FUM), which are harmful to humans and animals. Breeding for resistance to FER and FUM and post-harvest sorting of grain are two strategies for reducing FUM in the food system. Kernel and cob tissues have been previously associated with differential FER and FUM. Read More

Bacteriology and cytology of otic exudates in 41 cavalier King Charles spaniels with primary secretory otitis media.

Vet Dermatol 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Department of Microbiology, Immunology & Pathology, College of Veterinary Medicine, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO, 80523, USA.

Background: Primary secretory otitis media (PSOM) in the cavalier King Charles spaniel (CKCS) is similar to otitis media with effusion (OME) in humans. A proposed aetiology of OME is inflammation of the middle ear mucosa, usually due to bacterial infection, leading to auditory tube dysfunction.

Hypothesis/objectives: Our objective was to characterize the microbiological and cytological findings of otic exudates from the external ear canal (EEC) (n = 68) and middle ear (ME) (n = 69) from 41 CKCSs with PSOM. Read More

Mycoplasma conjunctivae in insect vectors and anatomic locations related to transmission and persistence.

Vet Microbiol 2019 Jan 12;228:7-11. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Wildlife Ecology & Health Group - Servei d' Ecopatologia de Fauna Salvatge (SEFaS), Departament de Medicina i Cirurgia, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Bellaterra 08193, Spain; UAB, Centre de Recerca en Sanitat Animal (CReSA, IRTA-UAB), Campus de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Bellaterra 08193, Spain.

Mycoplasma conjunctivae is an obligate microparasite that causes Infectious Keratoconjunctivitis (IKC) in Caprinae species. IKC is a long-recognised disease, but little attention has been paid to the mechanisms of transmission of the mycoplasma and its occurrence in locations other than the eyes. In this study, the presence of M. Read More

Determinants of Failure in the Reconstruction of the Tympanic Membrane: A Case-Control Study.

Iran J Otorhinolaryngol 2018 Nov;30(101):341-346

Department of Bio.Ne.C, University of Palermo, Palermo, Italy.

Introduction: The recurrence rate after tympanoplasty is variable between 0% and 50%. The causes of failure may be different and frequently interrelated, making the surgical choice difficult and the prognosis not always favourable. In this study, we analysed recurrence rate and the possible causes of failure of tympanoplasty in the treatment of tympanic perforations. Read More

Prevalence of Arnold nerve reflex in subjects with and without chronic cough: Relevance to Cough Hypersensitivity Syndrome.

Pulm Pharmacol Ther 2019 Feb 13;54:22-24. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, NY, USA.

Introduction: Cough is induced by stimulation of structures innervated by the vagus nerve, including the upper and lower airways and distal esophagus. The Arnold nerve reflex describes cough resulting from stimulation of the external auditory canal, which is innervated by the auricular branch of the vagus. We have recently reported the increased prevalence of this reflex in adults, but not children, with chronic cough, relative to healthy adult and pediatric subjects. Read More

Feasibility of a Post-Auricle Wireless Power System for Pediatric Mechanical Circulatory Support Pumps.

Conf Proc IEEE Eng Med Biol Soc 2018 Jul;2018:1514-1517

Heart failure (HF) affects approximately 12,000-35,000 children each year in the United States. The development of blood pumps has provided circulatory support for many adults suffering with HF until they receive a heart transplant. However, while the development of blood pumps for adults has led to fullyimplantable continuous flow devices, blood pump technology for children has lagged significantly behind. Read More

Intra-aural tick bite causing unilateral facial nerve palsy in 29 cases over 16 years in Kandy, Sri Lanka: is rickettsial aetiology possible?

BMC Infect Dis 2018 Aug 22;18(1):418. Epub 2018 Aug 22.

Department of Veterinary Pathobiology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science, University of Peradeniya, Peradeniya, 20400, Sri Lanka.

Background: Over the last two decades intra-aural tick infestation (otoacariasis) has been a common occurrence in the hilly central region in Sri Lanka. Very occasional detection of isolated unilateral facial nerve palsy associated with otoacariasis attributed to toxin damage of the nerve prompted us to study the clinico-epidemiology and aetio-pathology of the problem.

Methods: All cases having isolated unilateral facial nerve palsy associated with otoacariasis presented to, Ear Nose and Throat clinic at General Hospital Kandy, Sri Lanka from 2001 to 2016 were included in the study. Read More

The fungus Fusarium verticillioides can infect maize ears, contaminating the grain with mycotoxins, including fumonisins. This global public health threat can be managed by breeding maize varieties that are resistant to colonization by F. verticillioides and by sorting grain after harvest to reduce fumonisin levels in food systems.

mSphere 2018 06 20;3(3). Epub 2018 Jun 20.

Department of Ophthalmology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Adenovirus infections in humans are common and sometimes lethal. Adenovirus-derived vectors are also commonly chosen for gene therapy in human clinical trials. We have shown in previous work that homologous recombination between adenoviral genomes of human adenovirus species D (HAdV-D), the largest and fastest growing HAdV species, is responsible for the rapid evolution of this species.
