Increasing prevalence of Salmonella enterica serotype Paratyphi-A in patients with enteric fever in a periurban slum setting of Kolkata, India
TLDR
Quinolone derivatives (namely, Ciprofloxacin, NorfloxACin and Chloramphenicol) can be suggested as drugs of choice for treatment of enteric fever caused by SPTA and future vaccination strategies should include bivalent vaccines with protection capacities against both ST as well as SPTA. Expand
Efficacy of cocktail phage therapy in treating Vibrio cholerae infection in rabbit model.
TLDR
It was observed that oral administration of the phage cocktail after oral bacterial challenge lowered the shedding of bacteria significantly, and phage treatment prior to bacterial challenge had no such effect. Expand
A note on incidence of typhoid fever in diverse age groups in Kolkata, India.
TLDR
Which particular age group is more affected and as such should be the target age group for an immunization program is investigated in India. Expand
Asymptomatic Cryptosporidiosis in a periurban slum setting in Kolkata, India : a pilot study
TLDR
The study indicated that poor sanitary conditions may be cofactors for the cryptosporidial disease burden among slum dwellers. Expand
Role of probiotic in preventing acute diarrhoea in children: a community-based, randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled field trial in an urban slum
TLDR
It is suggested that daily intake of a probiotic drink can play a role in prevention of acute diarrhoea in young children in a community setting of a developing country. Expand
In-house contamination of potable water in urban slum of Kolkata, India: a possible transmission route of diarrhea.
TLDR
This attempt highlights the impact of quality of stored water at domiciliary level for fecal-oral contamination vis-à-vis disease transmission in diarrhea endemic foci of urban slums in Kolkata, India in a one and half year prospective study. Expand
Asymptomatic cryptosporiosis in a periurban slum setting in Kolkata, India--a pilot study.
TLDR
The study indicated that poor sanitary conditions may be cofactors for the cryptosporidial disease burden among slum dwellers. Expand
Epidemiological, microbiological & electron microscopic study of a cholera outbreak in a Kolkata slum community.
TLDR
The outbreak was caused by V. cholerae O1 (Ogawa) biotype ElTor, serotype Ogawa, and Occurrences of such outbreaks support vaccination against cholera as an alternative strategy. Expand
Host preference of Phlebotomus argentipes and Phlebotomus papatasi in different biotopes of West Bengal, India
TLDR
Investigation in two highly endemic Kala-azar districts of West Bengal, India for a better understanding of the transmission dynamics found that host preference of P. argentipes varied widely in different biotopes, which is mainly zoophilic, however it is also a “chance feeder” according toBiotopes. Expand
Influence of hydrologic and anthropogenic factors on the abundance variability of enteropathogens in the Ganges estuary, a cholera endemic region.
TLDR
Turbidity-dependent variation of CVC was noteworthy, particularly at Diamond Harbour, where CVC in intertidal surface sediments showed an analogous trend as in surface waters, suggesting bentho-pelagic coupling of Vibrio dynamics. Expand
