Variability of reporting style and terms such as mild inflammatory change and non-specific proctitis/colitis may hide pathologists' difficulties with diagnostic(More)
To predict the public health impact on cervical disease by introducing human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination in the United Kingdom, we developed a mathematical model that can be used to reflect the impact of vaccination in different countries with existing screening programmes. Its use is discussed in the context of the United Kingdom. The model was(More)
Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is associated with high mortality. Reducing incidence is a priority for patients, clinicians, the National Health Service (NHS) and Public Health England alike. In June 2012, fidaxomicin (FDX) was launched for the treatment of adults with CDI. The objective of this evaluation was to collect robust real-world data to(More)
OBJECTIVES Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bloodstream infections (BSIs) in the UK are common and associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Vancomycin is the usual first-line therapy. However, vancomycin treatment of BSIs due to MRSA strains with vancomycin MICs of 1-2 mg/L is successful in <10% of cases. No consensus exists on(More)
Invertebrate iridescent virus 6 (IIV6) was determined to cause infection in Phyllophaga vandinei Smyth (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) through a range of modes of transmissions. This is the first evidence of IIV6 infection in P. vandinei that caused both patent and sub-lethal infections in larvae and adults. Mortality rates were determined to be ~30% when virus(More)
