Yersinia enterocolitica in Kansas. Attempted recovery from 1,212 patients

American Journal of Clinical Pathology

Abstract

An attempt was made to isolate Yersinia enterocolitica, by cold enrichment, from the stool of 1,212 patients seen at the Wesley Medical Center in Wichita, Kansas. Y. enterocolitica was isolated from 5 (0.4%) of the patients. Shigella was isolated from 36 (3.0%) patients while either Salmonella or Campylobacter were each isolated from 15 (1.2%) patients. Two of our five Yersinia isolates were from patients admitted to the hospital with diarrhea. One was from a patient who developed transient diarrhea while in the hospital, and the other two were from patients without diarrhea. In our opinion, the data do not justify the routine examination of stool specimens for Y. enterocolitica.

COVID-19

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.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.
