Highlights in Infectious Disease

Intermittent ?-lactam bolus therapy less effective than prolonged infusion

Based on a meta-analysis (n=29 studies [2206 patients]) published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Agents, intermittent β-lactam therapy was less effective than prolonged infusion with respect to mortality rate (RR = 0.66) and clinical success (RR = 1.12).

SIRT3 expression improves prognosis in gastric cancer

As reported in Clinical Microbiology & Infection, among 158 adults with community-acquired respiratory failure, nasopharyngeal swabs revealed a RSV infection rate of 4% and an influenza virus infection rate of 15%.

HIV viremia associated with increased risk for NHL

As reported in Modern Pathology, CDX2 expression is associated with low-grade small intestinal adenocarcinomas, decreased nodal metastases, and decreased perineural invasion, while MUC1 expression is associated with high-grade tumors, and nodular and infiltrative tumors. The CDX2+/MUC1- immunophenotype is associated with increased survival.
