Abstract

Ninety-seven isolates of Shigella flexneri from children seeking medical care from three sites in Egypt were characterized. Overall, 46.4% of children (median age 17 months) were febrile or reported blood in their stools, 25.8% were dehydrated and 16.5% were admitted to hospital. Seroty...read more

Tetracyclines

Tetracycline is an oral antibiotic used to treat a number of infections including cholera, plague, malaria, and syphilis. It is also the first line of treatment for several diseases including Rickettsia and Lyme disease. Here is the latest research.

Shigellosis

Shigellosis is an infection of the intestines caused by Shigella bacteria. Signs and symptoms may range from mild abdominal discomfort to full-blown dysentery characterized by cramps, diarrhea, with slimy-consistent stools, fever, blood, pus, or mucus in stools or tenesmus. Discover the latest research on shigellosis here.

Histone Methyltransferases (Keystone)

Histone methyltransferases, as chromatin modifiers, regulate the transcriptomic landscape in normal development as well as in diseases such as cancer. This feed captures the latest research.

Antimicrobial Resistance (ASM)

Antimicrobial resistance poses a significant threat to the continued successful use of antimicrobial agents for the treatment of bacterial infections.
