Highlights in Infectious Disease

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%.

Short-term valacyclovir therapy does not reduce HIV acquisition risk in HSV-2 infected women

As reported in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, short-term treatment of HSV-2 infected, HIV non-infected women (n=30) with valacyclovir (1 g qd x 2 months) had no effect on cervical CD4+ T cells, dendritic cells, or pro-inflammatory cytokines, but increased CCR5 (HIV co-receptor) and CD69 (activation marker).

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.
