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%.

Chronic HCV infections are under-reported

As reported in Clinical Infectious Diseases, of 12M death certificates only one-fifth of the 0.5% of patients with HCV had HCV listed on the death certificate. Moreover, two-thirds of the patients had pre-mortem signs of chronic liver disease.

Pre-treatment with EPA decreases incidence of IFN-?-induced depression

As reported in Biological Psychiatry, pre-treatment of HCV-infected patients (n=162) with EPA for 2 weeks resulted in a decreased incidence of IFN-α-induced depression at 24 weeks compared to placebo (10% vs. 30%), and a delayed onset of depression (12.0 weeks vs. 5.3 weeks).
