Taenia solium cysticercosis is an endemic zoonosis in many developing countries. Serological tests are the most appropriate diagnostic tools to understand the transmission dynamics of the parasite, but the performances of these methods in such a setting are not known. A south Ecuadorian human population living in an endemic area was tested using three common serological tests. Because none of them is a gold standard, a Bayesian Latent Class analysis was used to estimate the test characteristics. Two definitions of a case were considered to differentiate between prevalence of current infection and prior exposure to the parasite. Differences between the performances of the same test in function of the definition of a case were observed. This study shows that test results and prior information should be interpreted carefully in a Bayesian analysis framework, particularly when the latter is based on clinical studies. [less ▲]

Hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) following nonmyeloablative conditioning (NMSCT) may be associated with a reduced risk of infection compared to standard allogeneic HCT. We retrospectively analyzed incidence and risk factors of infection in 62 patients undergoing NMSCT with low-dose TBI +/- fludarabine and postgrafting CsA and MMF. The proportion of patients with any infection was 77%, but the majority of infectious events occurred beyond day 30. Donor other than sibling, older age, early disease and male gender were significant risk factors. The incidence of bacteremia was 55% at 1 year and the number of bacteremic episodes was 0.9 per patient (0.08 before day 30). The risk of bacteremia increased with older age and the use of a donor other than an HLA-identical sibling, but not with neutropenia. The incidence of infections other than bacteremia correlated with the use of corticosteroids. The risk of CMV infection increased with high-risk CMV serology, and risk of CMV disease with high-risk CMV serology, older age, first transplantation and a diagnosis of lymphoma. In conclusion, after NMSCT, infections are not frequent in the first 30 days post transplant but careful long-term monitoring is necessary thereafter. [less ▲]

Immune reconstitution may be delayed after CD34-selected compared with unmanipulated autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT), resulting in a theoretically increased risk of infections. In a case-control matched study we compared the incidence of infection in 25 recipients of CD34-selected PBSC (CD34 group) and 75 recipients of unmanipulated PBSC (PBSC group) transplants. The population included 52 males and 48 females suffering from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (n = 32), Hodgkin's disease (n = 8), multiple myeloma (n = 40) or breast cancer (n = 20). Neutrophil engraftment was comparable in the two groups. The actuarial incidence of infection was similar in the two groups (56% vs. 49% at day 30, and 70% vs. 64% at 1 yr respectively). The proportion of patients with 1, 2 or 3 infections, the number of infectious event per patient (1.32 vs. 1.04; NS), the number of infections before day 15 or 30, between days 31 and 100 or after day 100, the risk of varicella-zoster virus or cytomegalovirus infection or disease, or the use of antibiotic or antifungal therapy, were not increased in the CD34 compared with the PBSC group. The main agents responsible for infection were bacteria, particularly gram-positive cocci, in both groups. Bacteremia accounted for 33% of all infectious events in the CD34 group vs. 16% in the PBSC group (P < 0.05). Fungal infections were rare. In conclusion, our results do not support the notion that CD34-selection of the graft is associated with an increased rate of infection after autologous PBSC transplantation. The role of extended infection prophylaxis should be evaluated. [less ▲]

Going in for sports is at increased risk for cutaneous infections that can be viral, bacterial, mycotic and parasitic in nature. The specific conditions of sports practice have a major influence on their occurrence. Other factors such as age, gender and genetic predisposition can also play a role. The cutaneous infections should be the target of preventive measures. To assume the worse, they should be recognized and treated without delay in order to avoid the more or less prolonged arrest of the sports activity and the disease transmission to partners. [less ▲]
