Dr. Ira Shah : Unusual Manifestations of Usual Infections
Dr Ira Shah talks about Unusual manifestations of Usual Infections. Lecture starts with explanation about usual infections and unusual patterns and the reasons: Organism based factors, host factors, doctor factors, outcome of these unusual manifestations, what could be the cause of persistent fever, complications of Hib meningitis, what could be the cause of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) in this child, what is the cause kind of unusual presentation, should antibiotics be changed, duration of fever in Hib meningitis, Prolonged fever, on examination cases of child, is this unusual manifestation of pulse polio, is this vaccination associated polio immunization, Polio virus eradication, how to diagnose enterovirus infection, what could be the cause of persistent fever, how should this child be treated, edema feet, pallor, hepatosplenomegaly, investigation, how to treat this child now and conclusion. It’s consists of four Case discussions on the topic.

Why these unusual patterns: Complication of the disease, subdural empyema in a meningitis, Factors that predispose the infection to persist longer, CVC lines in hospital acquired infections, Proton pump inhibitors for fungal infections, Umbilical lines in NICU infections, improper treatment, Under dosing, wrong choice of antimicrobials Organism based factors: The bug is a resistant bug, drug resistant TB, MDR typhoid, ESBL carbapenem resistant infections, organism has become more virulent, dengue epidemics, H1N1-changing pattern Host factors: Patient in immunocompromised-uncommon infections become common, cryptosporidia in HIV, cryptococcal meningitis, toxoplasmosis, the usual organisms make take longer time to respond due to poor immunity, IRIS in HIV Paradoxical reactions in TB, host associated disease, renal stones-can lead to UTI due to proteus.

"Climate Change and Human Health" Lecture by Howard Frumkin
Brown University March 2, 2018 | 3:00pm | IBES 015 Climate Change has been described as both the biggest public health threat and the biggest public health opportunity of the 21st century. This talk reviews the human health consequences of climate change, and review approaches to protecting people, both through mitigation (or primary prevention) and adaptation (or public health preparedness). It will also consider some “meta” issues such as how to communicate about climate change and how to maintain hope and avoid despair.

Pandemic Pathogens
A sufficiently bad disease could have disastrous effects for humanity, like the 1918 flu, black plague, or even worse. But to protect ourselves as a species from global catastrophic biological risks (GCBRs), we need to know which features make a pathogen more or less likely to pose an existential threat. In this advanced talk from EA Global 2018: San Francisco, Dr. Amesh Adalja covers what types of pathogens are most likely, which transmission methods to worry about the most, and many more considerations for anticipating and preventing GCBRs. To learn more about effective altruism, visit http://www.effectivealtruism.org To read a transcript of this talk, visit http://www.effectivealtruism.org/articles/ea-global-2018-pandemic-pathogens This talk was filmed at EA Global.

California woman c aught meningitis from CANNABIS
California woman caught meningitis from smoking medical marijuana contaminated with lethal fungus.A 48-year-old woman in California contracted a potentially deadly meningitis infection in 2016 from smoking her favorite medical marijuana strain three to six times a day, according to a British Medical Journal case study report published last month. The infection came from a fungus, called cryptococcus, that most people contract from inhaling contaminated dust or eating food that mouse feces have touched. Meningitis is the most common illness to develop from exposure to cryptococcus, and causes potentially fatal inflammation in the brain and spinal cord.

Charité Clinical Journal Club by Fred Luft - 3.6.2015
The N Engl J Med image of the week shows a young woman with a generalized morbilliform eruption over her entire body; the chest is most prominent. She wears eye protection because of photophobia. You are offered polymorphous light eruption, Dengue fever, measles, Stevens-Johnson syndrome and acute cutaneous lupus erythematosis. Herpes Zoster is a reactivation of varicella virus that plagues older adults and immunosuppressed persons, although zoster can appear at almost any age. A vaccine is available. We inspect a better vaccine based on expression of the virus glycoprotein E recombinantly. The vaccine in two doses of HZ/su administered 2 months apart had a vaccine efficacy of 97.2%, as compared with placebo, in reducing the risk of herpes zoster in adults 50 years of age or older. Meiosis is a specialized type of cell division, which reduces the chromosome number by half. The process is crucial to species survival and is thus carefully genetically regulated. The genetic basis of nonobstructive azoospermia is unknown in the majority of infertile men; meiosis regulators could play a role. Investigators performed array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) in blood samples obtained from patients with azoospermia and mutation screening by means of direct Sanger sequencing of the testis-expressed 11 (TEX11) gene open reading frame in patients with azoospermia and controls. TEX11 mutations occurred in infertile men with meiotic arrest. The finding is important for the diagnosis of azoospermia and meiotic arrest. It is also important for preconception testing in men who are partners of women undergoing in vitro fertilization, intracytoplasmic sperm injection, or both. Financial incentives promote many health behaviors, but effective ways to deliver health incentives remain uncertain. Psychologists randomly assigned CVS Caremark employees and their relatives and friends to one of four incentive programs or to usual care for smoking cessation. Would you believe that paying people to stop smoking is successful? Anything can be had for money! The natural history of tuberculosis begins with the inhalation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis organisms; a period of bacterial replication and dissemination ensues, followed by immunologic containment of viable bacilli. This state-of-affairs is called latent tuberculosis and almost everyone in my generation has it. The chances of developing clinical tuberculosis at a later timepoint is 5-15%, N Engl J Med reviews this important topic. The N Engl J Med case is a middle-aged nonsmoking woman with non-small-cell lung cancer. She develops intractable pain. Her terminal treatment is termed “palliative sedation”. The distinction between this approach and assisted suicide is discussed. Inhibition of cholesteryl ester transfer protein has been shown to reduce LDL-C concentrations in addition to regular statin treatment in patients with hypercholesterolaemia or at high risk of cardiovascular disease. Inhibitors thus far have not prolonged life of persons at risk from cardiovascular disease. Nonetheless, in the Lancet we review a paper on a CETP inhibitor in patients with familial hypercholesterolemia. In the fetus, the ductus venosus shunts a portion of the left umbilical vein blood flow directly to the inferior vena cava. Thus, the ductus-venosus shunt allows oxygenated blood from the placenta to bypass the liver. Increased impedance to flow in the fetal ductus venosus at 11-13 weeks’-gestation is associated with fetal aneuploidies, cardiac defects and other adverse pregnancy outcomes. No consensus exists for the best way to monitor and when to trigger delivery in mothers of babies with fetal growth restriction. Lancet investigators aimed to assess whether or not changes in the fetal ductus venosus Doppler waveform could be used as indications for delivery instead of cardiotocography short-term variation (STV). Unfortunately, the results do not inspire confidence. Mortality in people in Africa with HIV infection starting antiretroviral therapy (ART) is high, particularly in those with advanced disease, commonly complicated by cryptococcal meningitis, a treatable fungal meningeal disease. Therefore, investigators assessed the effect of a short period of community support to supplement clinic-based services combined with serum cryptococcal antigen screening. Just four short home visits by lay workers to provide adherence support combined with screening for cryptococcal meningitis led to a significant reduction in mortality in patients infected with HIV starting ART with advanced disease. The brachial plexus is a network of nerves, running from the spine, formed by the anterior rami of the lower four cervical nerves and first thoracic nerve (C5–C8, T1). Brachial plexus injuries can permanently impair hand function, yet present surgical reconstruction provides only poor results.
