This prevalence has remained stable over the last 10 years, as much among immunocompetent patients as among Immunocompromised patients, and an evaluation of the prevalence of resistance of HSV strains to antiviral drugs to be made.

The CMV DNA load determined in inflamed intestinal tissue predicts resistance to steroid treatment and to three drug regimens in UC, and initiation of an early antiviral treatment in these patients might delay the occurrence of resistance to current treatments.
Typing of Human Enterovirus by Partial Sequencing of VP2
Although the VP2 method was tested on only 36 of the 68 HEV serotypes, it appears to be a promising strategy for typing HEV strains isolated on a routine basis and the good sensitivity of the seminested technique could avoid cell culture and allow HEV typing directly from PCR products.

The platelet–bacteria interplay is a complex game; its fine analysis is complicated by the fact that the inflammatory component adds to the aggregation response.
The Inflammatory Role of Platelets via Their TLRs and Siglec Receptors
The role of platelets in anti-infection immunity via their TLRs and Siglec receptors is examined, including those belonging to the “toll-like receptor” family, as well as pathogen sensors of other natures.
Comparative Evaluation of Six Commercialized Multiplex PCR Kits for the Diagnosis of Respiratory Infections
This study compared the practicability and the diagnostic performances of six CE-marked kits available in 2011 on the French market, including 2 detecting viruses and atypical bacteria and 4 detecting only viruses (from Abbott, Genomica, Qiagen and Seegene companies).
COVID-19 may induce Guillain–Barré syndrome
Toll‐like receptor 4 ligand can differentially modulate the release of cytokines by human platelets
It is proposed that platelets adapt the subsequent responses, with polarized cytokine secretion, after TLR4 involvement, as well as the immunomodulation being specifically mediated by theTLR4 receptor.
Prospective study of nosocomial colonization and infection due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa in mechanically ventilated patients
The results emphasize the need for applying various infection control measures to prevent colonization of patients with P. aeruginosa, including strategies to limit the potential of sinks from acting as a source or reservoir for this bacterium.
