Neonatal listeriosis (based on 43 cases)

Annales de l'anesthésiologie française


Using results in 43 cases from two neonatal units (Paris-Tours), the authors emphasize the essential facts concerning neonatal listeriosis. 1 -- Incidence: -- of an infectious maternal disease (32 cases out of 43), -- of permaturity (60% of cases), -- and of foetal distress (72%). 2 -- Clinical study: Early neonatal infectious are the only forms seen; clinical signs appear before the first day (40 out of 42). These is septicaemia with mainly respiratory signs (olypnoea, laboured breathing). Their presence and clinical history should incite to take swabs of the orifices and carry out blood culture. The new-born are given double antibiotherapy (penicline and aninoside or kanamycine and gentalline) while waiting for laboratory reports. This routine treatment based on maternal past history and on mild clinical signs at this stage has improved the prognosis of these septicaemias (16 deaths out of 43 children).

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
