Highlights in Infectious 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).

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%.
