Structures of a highly variable cell-wall anchored protein-encoding the spj gene from ST8/SCCmecIVl community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA/J) isolated from 2003 onwards: An indicator of a strongly invasive pathotype.

Microbiol Immunol 2019 Apr 22. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

Department of Epidemiology, Genomics, and Evolution, International Medical Education and Research Center, Niigata, Japan.

The cell wall-anchored protein-encoding spj gene on staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec IVl (SCCmecIVl) varied in size due to its 22- and 86-amino acid (aa) repeat domains. Of the two repeats, the 22-aa repeats were more flexible, comprising three 11-aa units, and were classified into three groups with eleven types. The 11/22-aa repeats were longer in bulluos impetigo cases, shorter in invasive cases, and absent in a fatal case, with the last one being rapidly diagnosed by PCR. Read More

Efficacy of mass drug administration with ivermectin for control of scabies and impetigo, with coadministration of azithromycin: a single-arm community intervention trial.

Lancet Infect Dis 2019 Apr 4. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

Murdoch Children's Research Institute, Melbourne, VIC, Australia; Centre for International Child Health, University of Melbourne, Melbourne, VIC, Australia. Electronic address:

Background: In small community-based trials, mass drug administration of ivermectin has been shown to substantially decrease the prevalence of both scabies and secondary impetigo; however, their effect at large scale is untested. Additionally, combined mass administration of drugs for two or more neglected diseases has potential practical advantages, but efficacy of potential combinations should be confirmed.

Methods: The azithromycin ivermectin mass drug administration (AIM) trial was a prospective, single-arm, before-and-after, community intervention study to assess the efficacy of mass drug administration of ivermectin for scabies and impetigo, with coadministration of azithromycin for trachoma.

Vaccine 2018 11 3;36(50):7618-7624. Epub 2018 Nov 3.

Murdoch Children's Research Institute, The Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne, Australia; Centre for International Child Health, University of Melbourne, Australia; Department of Paediatrics, University of Melbourne, Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne, Parkville, Australia.

Sustained control of group A Streptococcus (GAS) infections in settings of poverty has proven to be challenging, and an effective vaccine may be the most practical long-term strategy to reduce GAS-related disease burden. Candidate GAS vaccines based on the J8 peptide have demonstrated promising immunogenicity in mice, however, less is known about the role of J8 antibodies in the human immune response to GAS infection. We analysed the stimulation of J8 antibodies in response to infection, and the role of existing J8 antibodies in protection against subsequent infection, using data collected in the Fijian population: (1) cross sectional population serosurvey; (2) paired serum collection for assessment of M-specific and J8 antibody responses; and (3) longitudinal assessment of GAS infection and immunity.

A C126R Mutation in Leads to X-linked Chronic Granulomatous Disease With Recurrent Pneumonia and BCGitis.

Front Pediatr 2018 11;6:248. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

Department of Immunology, Institute of Biomedical Sciences, University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.

Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is an innate immune deficiency of phagocytic cells caused by mutations that affect components of the NADPH oxidase system, with resulting impairment in reactive oxygen species production. Patients with CGD are susceptible to recurrent infections and hyperinflammatory responses. Mutations in lead to the X-linked form of CGD and are responsible for ~ 70% of cases. Read More

Skin diseases associated with atopic dermatitis.

Clin Dermatol 2018 Sep - Oct;36(5):631-640. Epub 2018 Jun 1.

Department of Dermatology, Mt Sinai West, Icahn School of Medicine at Mt Sinai, New York, NY. Electronic address:

Atopic dermatitis is a common chronic pruritic inflammatory skin disorder, characterized by an abnormal skin barrier, immune dysfunction, and an altered skin microbiome. Atopic dermatitis may be seen in conjunction with a variety of other skin disorders due to the complex pathogenesis of atopic dermatitis, involving genetic and environmental factors that are associated with immune dysfunction, barrier defects, and altered skin microbiomes. Skin disorders associated with atopic dermatitis include diseases sharing similar genetic origins like ichthyosis vulgaris, infectious diseases such as impetigo, and eczema herpeticum, in addition to the cutaneous autoimmune diseases, alopecia areata, and vitiligo.

Atypical case of mucous membrane pemphigoid in a 26-year-old man.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Sep 12;2018. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Department of Ophthalmology, Penn State Health Milton S Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA.

A 26-year-old Caucasian man with no previous history of chemical injury presenting with an inability to open his right eye was investigated for mucous membrane pemphigoid and treated. Examination was notable for symblepharon of the right eye and impetigo-like lesions on the face and neck. A biopsy with immunohistochemical analysis was significant for linear deposits of C3 and immunoglobulin G at the level of the epithelial basement membrane, confirming the diagnosis of mucous membrane pemphigoid.

[Investigation of Streptococcus pyogenes virulence factors and typing by multiple locus variable number tandem repeat fingerprinting (MLVF) method].

Mikrobiyol Bul 2018 Jul;52(3):233-246

Selçuk University Faculty of Medicine, Department of Medical Microbiology, Konya, Turkey.

Streptococcus pyogenes is an important bacterial pathogen that colonizes the throat and skin of human beings and causes a wide variety of diseases ranging from mild infections like pharyngitis, tonsillitis and impetigo to severe invasive infections such streptococcal toxic shock syndrome, septicemia, and necrotizing fasciitis, and produces a wide variety of virulence factors. The aim of this study was to investigate the antibiotic resistance, virulence genes; [pyrogenic exotoxin genes (speA, C, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, smeZ and ssa), deoxyribonuclease genes (sdaB, spd3, sdc ve sdaD), protease genes (speB, spyCEP ve scpA) and inhibitor genes (mac and sic)] of S.pyogenes strains isolated from throat cultures of patients with symptomatic tonsillo-pharyngitis and typing by multiple locus variable number tandem repeat fingerprinting (MLVF) method.

Structure of ScpC, a virulence protease from , reveals the functional domains and maturation mechanism.

Biochem J 2018 09 11;475(17):2847-2860. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

Department of Biological Sciences, 14 Science Drive 4, National University of Singapore, Singapore 117543

Group A Streptococcus (GAS; ) causes a wide range of infections, including pharyngitis, impetigo, and necrotizing fasciitis, and results in over half a million deaths annually. GAS ScpC (SpyCEP), a 180-kDa surface-exposed, subtilisin-like serine protease, acts as an essential virulence factor that helps evade the innate immune response by cleaving and inactivating C-X-C chemokines. ScpC is thus a key candidate for the development of a vaccine against GAS and other pathogenic streptococcal species. Read More
