Poult Sci 2019 Apr 19. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

Institute of Micromechanics and Photonics, Faculty of Mechatronics, Warsaw University of Technology, 02-525 Warsaw, Poland.

Mycoplasma synoviae (MS) is a major pathogen in chicken and turkeys, causing subclinical infection. MS infections are highly prevalent and may potentate and be involved in sinovitis, respiratory syndromes, as well as lead to eggshell apex abnormality (EAA). A deformed, inhomogeneous eggshell is susceptible to cracks and breaks through which microbes get in and additionally entails higher water loss in the egg during the entire incubation process.

Hyeon-Jong Yang

Korean J Pediatr 2019 Mar 15. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Pediatric Allergy and Respiratory Center, Department of Pediatrics, Soonchunhyang University Seoul Hospital, Soonchunhyang University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia (MPP) has been generally susceptible to macrolides, however emergence of macrolide-resistant Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia (MRMP) has made the treatment of MPP challenging. MRMP rapidly spread after 2000s, especially in the Eastern Asia. MRMPs are more common in children and adolescents than in adults, which is likely related to the frequent use of macrolides for treatments of MP infections in children. Read More

Periprosthetic joint infection associated with Mycoplasma hominis after transurethral instrumentation in an immunocompetent patient. Unusual or underestimated? A case report and review of the literature.

Int J Infect Dis 2019 Mar 14;82:86-88. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

Johanniter Hospital, Department of Orthopaedic, General and Accident Surgery, Rheinhausen, Germany.

Judging by the small number of published cases, periprosthetic joint infections (PJI) caused by Mycoplasma species are regarded as unusual. This is not surprising as special growth conditions are necessary for diagnosis and therefore the laboratory must be informed of any clinical suspicion. However, surgeons are generally not aware of the risk factors associated with certain microorganisms causing an infection. Read More

Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin 2019 Mar 13. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Unidad de ITS Vall d'Hebron-Drassanes, Servicio de Enfermedades Infecciosas, Hospital Vall d'Hebron, Barcelona, España.

Sexually transmitted infections caused by Chlamydia trachomatis, including lymphogranuloma venereum and Mycoplasma genitalium have increased in last decade. This epidemiological scenario presents new challenges in order to improve and strengthen our control and prevention strategies. The routine clinical diagnosis of urethritis and cervicitis must be combined with the active search for the causal agent in men with symptoms of dysuria or proctitis, and in women with pelvic inflammatory disease.

Institute of Parasitology, Department of Pathobiology, University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna, Veterinaerplatz 1, 1210, Vienna, Austria.

Canine pathogens transmitted by blood-sucking arthropods are of significant importance for veterinary and, in some cases, human health. However, they are still underestimated and rarely investigated in many parts of the Mediterranean region, mostly due to financial reasons. Therefore, in the present paper, we investigated the occurrence of blood-associated pathogens affecting dogs in Crete, Greece. Read More

Precision medicine: retrospective chart review and data analysis of 200 patients on dapsone combination therapy for chronic Lyme disease/post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome: part 1.

Int J Gen Med 2019 18;12:101-119. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Hudson Valley Healing Arts Center, Hyde Park, NY 12538, USA,

Purpose: We collected data from an online survey of 200 of our patients, which evaluated the efficacy of dapsone (diaminodiphenyl sulfone, ie, DDS) combined with other antibiotics and agents that disrupt biofilms for the treatment of chronic Lyme disease/post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome (PTLDS). We also collected aggregate data from direct retrospective chart review, including laboratory testing for Lyme, other infections, and associated tick-borne coinfections. This helped us to determine the frequency of exposure to other infections/coinfections among a cohort of chronically ill Lyme patients, evaluate the efficacy of newer "persister" drug regimens like DDS, and determine how other infections and tick-borne coinfections may be contributing to the burden of chronic illness leading to resistant symptomatology.

Duration of immunity for an inactivated Mycoplasma hyorhinis vaccine in pigs.

Vet Microbiol 2019 Mar 14;230:273-277. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Research & Development, Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health USA, 2412 S. Loop Dr., Ames, IA 50010, USA.

Mycoplasma hyorhinis (Mhr) is a pathogen of pigs causing polyserositis and polyarthritis. The most susceptible population are nursery pigs of approximately 7 weeks of age, although we have shown that clinical signs can persist into finishing aged animals after a late-nursery infection. We have previously demonstrated the efficacy of a novel inactivated Mhr vaccine for the reduction of lameness and polyserositis in caesarian-derived colostrum-deprived (CDCD) pigs vaccinated at 3 weeks and challenged with Mhr at 6 weeks of age.
