Immune Reconstitution Inflammatory Syndrome: Emergence of a Unique Syndrome During Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy
The present understanding of the basic science underlying IRIS is reviewed, with illustrative examples from the authors' case series, and the existing clinical literature is reviewed.
Role of biofilm in catheter-associated urinary tract infection.
No proven effective strategies exist for prevention of catheter-associated urinary tract infection in persons who are chronically catheterized, but changing the catheter before collecting urine improves the accuracy of urine culture results.
Catheter-associated infections: pathogenesis affects prevention.
Prevention of urinary catheter-associated infection is hindered by the numbers and types of organisms present in the periurethral area as well as by the typically longer duration of catheter placement.
Clinical Practice Guideline for the Management of Asymptomatic Bacteriuria: 2019 Update by the Infectious Diseases Society of America
Received 29 November 2018; editorial decision 20 December 2018; accepted 27 December 2018; published online March 21, 2019. The guidelines represent the proprietary and copyrighted property of the
Inappropriate treatment of catheter-associated asymptomatic bacteriuria in a tertiary care hospital.
Better recognition of CAABU and the distinction between this condition and CAUTI, consistent with evidence-based guidelines, may play a key role in reducing unneeded antibiotic usage in hospitalized patients.
Diagnosis and management of urinary tract infections in the outpatient setting: a review.
Immediate antimicrobial therapy with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, nitrofurantoin, or fosfomycin is indicated for acute Cystitis in adult women and women with diabetes without voiding abnormalities presenting with acute cystitis should be treated similarly to women without diabetes.

Many aspects of the management of CAUTI merit further study, and the current interest inCAUTI is likely to lead to exciting advances in this field, as little new evidence is available to guide diagnosis and treatment strategies.
Antibacterial activity and cytotoxicity of PEGylated poly(amidoamine) dendrimers.
The cytotoxicity of the PEGylated dendrimers to host cells is much lower than that reported for antimicrobial peptides, and the MICs of these d endrimers against P. aeruginosa are more than two orders of magnitude lower than other antimicrobial polymers reported to date.
Silver or nitrofurazone impregnation of urinary catheters has a minimal effect on uropathogen adherence.
The results do not support a role for silver urinary catheters to prevent catheter associated urinary tract infection by decreasing bacterial adherence, and silver impregnation had little effect on bacterial adherence in this model.
Diagnosis and management of recurrent urinary tract infections in non-pregnant women
This review will focus on the causes of recurrent UTI, when and how to investigate women who present with this problem, andHow to manage and prevent recurrent infections.
