Shiga Toxin–Producing Escherichia coli Infections Associated with Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, Italy, 1988–2000
TLDR
L Laboratory investigations showed that Shiga toxin–producing Escherichia coli (STEC) infection occurred in 73.1% of patients, and STEC O157 was the most common serotype, but a considerable number of cases were from infections by non-O157 STEC. Expand
A controlled trial of two acellular vaccines and one whole-cell vaccine against pertussis. Progetto Pertosse Working Group.
TLDR
The two acellular DTP vaccines studied were safe, immunogenic, and efficacious against pertussis, whereas the efficacy of the whole-cell DTP vaccine was unexpectedly low. Expand
Rationale for pertussis booster vaccination throughout life in Europe.
TLDR
Recommendations for use of pertussis booster vaccinations at different ages are proposed to reduce individual morbidity and transmission from present rates and increase herd protection. Expand
Resurgence of Pertussis in Europe
TLDR
The epidemiology of pertussis in Western European countries to discuss future vaccination strategies is described, showing that the incidence in children younger than 1 year was high but remained stable, rates in adults doubled in 5 years. Expand
Non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli infections in Europe.
TLDR
Non-O157 STEC is often overlooked in clinical microbiology labora-tories because the toxigenic phenotype is not exploited to identify such pathogens. Expand
Close Encounters in a Pediatric Ward: Measuring Face-to-Face Proximity and Mixing Patterns with Wearable Sensors
TLDR
This study shows the feasibility of accurate and reproducible measures of the pattern of contacts in a hospital setting, particularly useful for the study of the spread of respiratory infections, for monitoring critical patterns, and for setting up tailored prevention strategies. Expand
Waterborne Outbreak of Norwalk-Like Virus Gastroenteritis at a Tourist Resort, Italy
TLDR
Italy has no surveillance system for nonbacterial gastroenteritis, no outbreak caused by NLV has been described previously in the country, and attack rates were increased in staff members involved in water sports. Expand
Hospital-Based Surveillance to Estimate the Burden of Rotavirus Gastroenteritis Among European Children Younger Than 5 Years of Age
TLDR
Most community-acquired rotavirus gastroenteritis occurs in children aged <2 years, and a high proportion occurs in infants aged <6 months, and cases were also observed among very young infants <2 months of age. Expand
Pediatric sentinel surveillance of vaccine-preventable diseases in Italy
TLDR
The sentinel surveillance system is considerably more sensitive than statutory notifications, particularly in southern Italy, and is a useful tool for evaluating vaccine-preventable disease trends. Expand
Immunization coverage and timeliness of vaccination in Italian children with chronic diseases.
TLDR
It was revealed that children with HIV infection had the longest time to complete three doses of DTP, Pol, and HBV, and those with neurological diseases received the first dose of MMR later than the other categories. Expand
