Fri, 17 Jan 2020Vitamin E acetate, which has been detected in tetrahydrocannabinol -containing e-cigarette, or vaping, products, is strongly linked to the e-cigarette, or vaping, product use-associated lung injury outbreak; however, evidence is not sufficient to rule out the contribution of other chemicals of concern, including chemicals in either THC- or non-THC-containing products, in some reported EVALI cases.

Fri, 17 Jan 2020CDC updates demographic characteristics, self-reported substance use, and hospitalization dates for e-cigarette, or vaping, product use-associated lung injury patients reported to CDC, as well as the distribution of emergency department visits related to e-cigarette, or vaping, products.

A 67-year-old Man With Recurrent Multifocal Cellulitis...
Thu, 16 Jan 2020A 67-year-old Caucasian man, an avid traveler with a history of hypertension, depression, and previous morbid obesity treated with bariatric surgery, presented with low-grade fever and recurrent left-ankle painful rash (Figure 1A). The patient noted the first episode 2 months prior to presentation when he presented with a poorly defined painful erythematous patch over his left ankle and leukocytosis. He was treated with cefazolin for suspected cellulitis and discharged on cephalexin with partial improvement. Infectious workup, including blood cultures, echocardiogram, and x-ray, was negative. Over the next few weeks he developed similar discrete episodes with new, noncontiguous rashes to other body parts, such as the abdomen, left shoulder (Figure 1B), right gluteal region, right elbow, and left knee that spontaneously resolved within a few days, sometimes without antibiotic treatment. A partial response to antihistamines, leg elevation, and doxycycline was noted, but rash and pain worsened with a short trial of steroids after initial improvement. Two days prior to admission, he again developed left-ankle painful erythematous rash spreading up to his knee, associated with fever. He had an extensive travel history with trips to China, India, South Asia, Canada, and Brazil in the last decade. Five months previously he had visited Hong Kong where he had a diarrheal illness consisting of 4–5 loose but not watery stools for 2 days that self-resolved. Three months previously he visited Morocco where he rode a camel. He lives in Missouri and has retired but volunteers with refugees hailing from the developing world receiving treatment for tuberculosis. He is a former sushi chef and eats raw seafood often. On presentation, he was febrile to 38.3°C but otherwise had stable vital signs. Laboratory data revealed leukocytosis (12 300 cells/μL) and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (49 mm/h) and C-reactive protein (103 mg/L). Blood cultures were collected, and the patient was started on vancomycin and cefepime. Rheumatologic testing was negative, as was testing for syphilis, human immunodeficiency virus, tuberculosis, and Lyme disease. Left lower extremity computed tomography showed superficial soft tissue edema without osteomyelitis or abscess. Echocardiogram showed normal ventricular function without vegetations. Skin biopsy revealed sparse perivascular and interstitial inflammatory infiltrate consistent with cellulitis with negative tissue bacterial cultures. The aerobic bottle from 2 sets of blood cultures obtained on the day of admission yielded a pathogen whose microscopic features are shown in Figures 2 and 3.

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.

2020-01-18Hidden between the lines of the opioid crisis emerges an often-overlooked rise in hospitalizations due to superinfections from skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) and sepsis. Wound care for abscesses and management of sepsis creates substantial increases in healthcare costs, not to mention that these infections contribute to the growing concern of highly resistant strains of bacteria.1

2020-01-18Health service providers are at risk for occupational infection of bloodborne pathogens.1 Universal precautions are recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in 1985 as necessary safety procedures to protect service providers from needle stick transmission of Hepatitis B virus, Hepatitis C virus, and HIV.2,3 The universal precaution guidelines were later updated, referred to as standard precaution, which is based on the principle that all blood, body fluids, secretions, excretions except sweat, nonintact skin, and mucous membranes may contain transmissible infectious agents.

2020-01-17Central lines are intravenous catheters used to deliver medication or parenteral nutrition to the human body. These devices can deliver life-saving medication and fluids to seriously ill patients and may be in place for months.1 A central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) is a serious, and sometimes fatal, complication that occurs when microorganisms (ie, bacteria, fungi, etc.) enter the bloodstream through the central line and cause disease.1 These infections often lead to increased morbidity and mortality, as well as increased length of stay and health care costs.
