The incidence of SSTIs at University of Chicago Medicine decreased significantly in children and adults with seasonal variation, peaking during the summer months. This suggests a reversal of the massive increase in SSTI incidence after 2000 in the U.S.
Suppressive oral antibiotics for at least three months, but not at least six months, are associated with treatment success at one year post-diagnosis of orthopedic hardware infection.
AbstractWe describe the clinical and imaging characteristics of 7 cases with polymerase chain reaction-confirmed novel influenza A H1N1 virus (pH1N1) infection who developed venous thromboembolic events (VTEs) while being hospitalized for influenza pneumonia. Pulmonary embolism (PE) without deep...
AbstractBackground.Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected individuals have increased risk for vascular thrombosis, potentially driven by interactions between activated leukocytes and the endothelium.Methods.Monocyte subsets (CD14+CD16−, CD14+CD16+, CD14DimCD16+) from HIV negative (HIV−) and...
AbstractIn chronic human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 infection, long-lived latently infected cells are the major barrier to virus eradication and functional cure. Several therapeutic strategies to perturb, eliminate, and/or control this reservoir are now being pursued in the clinic. These...
AbstractBackground.Both human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and antiretroviral therapy (ART) may increase cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. Vascular function assessments can be used to study CVD pathogenesis. We compared the effect of immediate versus deferred ART initiation at CD4...
AbstractBackground. Herpes zoster, or shingles, is a common, painful reactivation of latent varicella zoster virus infection. Understanding host factors that predispose to herpes zoster may permit development of more effective prevention strategies. Our objective was to examine mitochondrial...
A rare case of MDR P. aeruginosa causing PVE is analyzed at the genetic level with the goal of understanding acquired resistance mechanisms. The molecular basis of evolving antibiotic resistance gives clinicians insight into the nature of persistent P. aeruginosa infections.
AbstractBackground.Panton-Valentine leucocidin is a Staphylococcus aureus virulence factor encoded by lukF-PV and lukS-PV that is infrequent in S aureus bacteremia (SAB), and, therefore, little is known about risk factors and outcome of lukF-PV/lukS-PV-positive SAB.Methods.This report is a...
