An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), using monoclonal antibodies for capture and detection, was developed for detecting bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV) antigens in blood samples. The test was evaluated using 761 field samples of known status (viraemic or not). When an appropriate cut-off value was chosen, the sensitivity, specificity, and predictive values of the assay were 100%, higher than the values obtained by classical virus isolation. Correlation with the latter technique exceeded 90%. The ELISA is a good candidate for replacing virus isolation as a reference method for BVDV antigen detection in persistently infected carriers. A method based on the mean of the standard deviation ratio can be used to choose the cut-off value in order to optimise reproducibility. [less ▲]

AIM: To document the epidemiologic patterns and risk factors of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections in Mali in order to develop prevention means for both diseases. METHODS: Two prospective studies were conducted in Bamako in 2009 among 1000 pregnant women (i.e. , young women) who consulted six reference health centers, and in 2010, among 231 older women who attended general practice in two hospitals. Antibody tests and molecular analysis (performed only for HCV) were used to quantify the frequencies of both infections. The data were collected from patients recruited through a questionnaire. Transmission risk factors of both diseases were identified by univariate and multivariate analysis. RESULTS: HCV seroprevalence was 0.2% for young and 6.5% for older women. HIV prevalence was similar in both populations (4.1% vs 6.1%). In older women, the analysis of risk factors highlighted an association between HCV infection and episodes of hospitalization (P < 0.01). The study did not show an association between HIV infection and the variables such as hospitalization, transfusion, tattoo, dental care, and endoscopy. A significant decrease of HIV seroprevalence was detected in young women who used condoms for contraception more than for other purposes (P < 0.01). By contrast, HIV seroprevalence was significantly increased in young women using condoms mainly to prevent sexual infections rather than for contraception (P < 0.01). No HCV/HIV coinfection was detected in our study. CONCLUSION: Risk factors and epidemiologic data of HIV and HCV as well as the absence of co-infection strongly suggest epidemiological disparities between these diseases. [less ▲]

Over a 16-month period, Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from 102 patients admitted to a university hospital in Liege (Belgium) produced extended-spectrum beta-lactamases. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis of genome macrorestriction patterns with XbaI and antibiotic susceptibility patterns subdivided 39 isolates into eight clonally related groups. Two of them were implicated in the course of this outbreak. They were responsible for successive waves of infection or colonization in different wards of the hospital while the others were encountered sporadically. A beta-lactamase with an isoelectric point of 7.6 and consistent with type SHV-2 characterized all nine isolates chosen among both major groups. [less ▲]

The prevalence of high blood pressure increases in our industrialized society. The main risk factors are hypertensive heredity, small birth weight for the gestational age, large increase of weight in teenagers, low physical activity, excess in salt and/or alcohol consumption. The normotensive people with high normal blood pressure are the future hypertensive population. [less ▲]

Trypanosoma evansi is an extracellular parasite, found in blood and tissues, mainly causing anaemia, immune depression and central nervous system disorders. Contrary to other African trypanosomes, T. evansi is adapted to mechanical transmission and thus, presents a worldwide distribution. This review summarizes the epidemiological data about T. evansi from its origins to the latest developments, as its addition in 2008 to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) listed diseases and other diseases of importance to International Trade. This article puts emphasis on the need for a coordinated epidemiological control strategy and research for improving diagnostic and control tools. [less ▲]
