Development of a DNA microarray assay for rapid detection of fifteen bacterial pathogens in pneumonia.

BMC Microbiol 2020 Jun 23;20(1):177. Epub 2020 Jun 23.

Department of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine, Chinese PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China.

Background: The rapid identification of pathogenic bacteria is important for determining an appropriate antimicrobial therapy for pneumonia, but traditional bacterial culture is time-consuming and labourious. The aim of this study was to develop and evaluate a DNA microarray assay for the simultaneous detection of fifteen bacterial species directly from respiratory tract specimens in patients with pneumonia. These species included Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Haemophilus influenzae, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Enterococcus faecalis, Enterococcus faecium, Enterobacter cloacae, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, Burkholderia cepacia, Legionella pneumophila and Chlamydia pneumoniae.

Health status of free-ranging ring-necked pheasant chicks (Phasianus colchicus) in North-Western Germany.

PLoS One 2020 16;15(6):e0234044. Epub 2020 Jun 16.

Institute for Terrestrial and Aquatic Wildlife Research, University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Hannover, Germany.

Being a typical ground-breeding bird of the agricultural landscape in Germany, the pheasant has experienced a strong and persistent population decline with a hitherto unexplained cause. Contributing factors to the ongoing negative trend, such as the effects of pesticides, diseases, predation, increase in traffic and reduced fallow periods, are currently being controversially discussed. In the present study, 62 free-ranging pheasant chicks were caught within a two-year period in three federal states of Germany; Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia and Schleswig-Holstein. Read More

Mycoplasma pneumoniae (Mp) is one of the most common causes of community-acquired pneumonia. Given the emergence and high rates of antibiotic-resistant Mp strains, vaccines that prevent the pneumonia and secondary complications due to Mp infection are urgently needed. Although several studies have shown the protective efficacy of Mp vaccines in human clinical trials, some reports suggest that vaccination against Mp exacerbates disease upon subsequent Mp challenge.

biofilms grown : traits associated with persistence and cytotoxicity.

Microbiology 2020 May 18. Epub 2020 May 18.

Department of Microbiology, Miami University, 212 Pearson Hall, Oxford, OH 45056, USA.

The atypical bacterial pathogen is a leading etiological agent of community-acquired pneumonia in humans; infections are often recalcitrant, recurrent and resistant to antibiotic treatment. These characteristics suggest a mechanism that facilitates long-term colonization in hosts. In an setting, forms biofilms that are unusual in that motility plays no more than a very limited role in their formation and development. Read More

COVID-19 in Children, Pregnancy and Neonates: A Review of Epidemiologic and Clinical Features.

Pediatr Infect Dis J 2020 06;39(6):469-477

Department of Paediatrics, The University of Melbourne, Parkville, Australia.

The novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic has spread rapidly across the globe. In contrast to initial reports, recent studies suggest that children are just as likely as adults to become infected with the virus but have fewer symptoms and less severe disease. In this review, we summarize the epidemiologic and clinical features of children infected with SARS-CoV-2 reported in pediatric case series to date. Read More
