Fri, 29 Nov 2019Outbreaks of circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2 (cVDPV2) have been reported in several countries in West Africa, central Africa and Horn of Africa (for more information, please see the disease outbreak news published on 31 July 2019). This report provides a situational update on current cVDPV2 outbreaks in newly affected countries in Africa. No wild poliovirus has been detected on the continent since September 2016.
In West Africa and the Lake Chad sub-region, a cVDPV2 outbreak originating from Jigawa state, Nigeria, continues to spread. Following detection of this outbreak in Cameroon, Ghana, Benin and the Republic of Niger earlier this year and in 2018, the virus has now been detected in Chad, Togo and Côte d’Ivoire.

Thu, 28 Dec 2017
In a study of medical records gathered on hundreds of thousands of African-American women, Johns Hopkins researchers say they have evidence that women with a common form of hair loss have an increased chance of developing uterine leiomyomas, or fibroids.
More Tumor Mutations Equals Higher Success Rate With Cancer Immun...
Wed, 20 Dec 2017
The “mutational burden,” or the number of mutations present in a tumor’s DNA, is a good predictor of whether that cancer type will respond to a class of cancer immunotherapy drugs known as checkpoint inhibitors, a new study led by
Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Centerresearchers shows. The finding, published in the Dec. 21 New England Journal of Medicine, could be used to guide future clinical trials for these drugs.

Mon, 18 Dec 2017
In a study using genetically engineered mice, Johns Hopkins researchers have uncovered some new molecular details that appear to explain how electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) rapidly relieves severe depression in mammals, presumably including people. The molecular changes allow more communication between neurons in a specific part of the brain also known to respond to antidepressant drugs.

2019-12-05In a retrospective study conducted over 12 months in a multi-hospital system, the incidence of bloodstream infections associated with midline catheters was not significantly lower than that associated with central venous catheters (0.88 vs 1.10 infections per 1,000 catheter-days). Additional research is needed to further characterize the infectious risks of midline catheters and to determine optimal strategies to minimize these risks.

2019-12-05Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) is the most common cause of nosocomial diarrhea in hospitals, and significant disease occurs in LTCFs with high morbidity and mortality.1-3 A retrospective cohort study estimated CDI prevalence of 1.85 per 100 LTCF admissions across the United States,4 and residents have risk factors, including older age, receipt of antibiotics, recent hospitalization, and extended lengths of stay.5,6 A large case control study found antibiotic use and importation of C difficile from acute care hospitals accounted for 75% of the variation in CDI across VA LTCFs.

2019-12-04Mucorales are environmental molds responsible for mucormycosis, a severe and even fatal complication that occurs mainly in immunocompromised patients. Although the major route of infections has been the inhalation of spores from environmental sources, cutaneous exposure has also been reported as a relevant mode of transmission.1 A variety of wound dressings and contaminated bandages have been implicated in documented cases and small hospital outbreaks of cutaneous mucormycosis.2-4 Furthermore, 2 recently reported mucormycosis outbreaks were associated with contaminated hospital linens.
