Staphylococcus aureus is an important human pathogen, but it appears more commonly in asymptomatic colonization of the nasopharynx than in cases of invasive disease. Evidence concerning the global population structure of S. aureus is limited by the overrepresentation in the multilocus sequence testing database of disease isolates recovered from Western(More)
Sub-Saharan Africa suffers from an excessively high endemicity of hepatitis B virus (HBV), but little is known about the prevalent genotypes. In this study, we investigated the PreS1/PreS2/S genes of 127 viruses obtained from 12 locations in Mali, Burkina Faso, Togo, Benin, Nigeria, Cameroon, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Except for those obtained(More)
In staphylococci, methicillin (meticillin) resistance (MR) is mediated by the acquisition of the mecA gene, which is carried on the size and composition variable staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec). MR has been extensively studied in Staphylococcus aureus, but little is known about MR coagulase-negative staphylococci (MR-CoNS). Here, we describe(More)
A study was conducted between 1993 and 1996 in Bamako to determine the rate of occurrence of microsporidia in 88 patients. Most (80%) had chronic diarrhea associated with weight loss and 87.5% were HIV-positive. Intestinal microsporidia were detected in 32% of the patients infected with HIV-1, HIV-2, or coinfected with both strains. Microsporidiosis was(More)
Enterocytozoon bieneusi and Enterocytozoon salmonis are reported in HIV-infected patients and in salmonid fish, respectively. Both species share the early development of the extrusion apparatus of the spores, which is completed prior to fission of the sporogonic syncytium into sporoblasts, and the early synthesis of polar tube constituents, but they differ(More)
Parasitological, malacological and anthropological studies were performed to assess the prevalence of Schistosoma haematobium and S. mansoni in schoolchildren living in the suburban area of Bamako. A total of 1017 schoolchildren aged 6-14 years were selected in two different areas between September 1997 and December 1999. In Djikoroni, the prevalence of S.(More)
Extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae have been isolated from many regions of the world. Epidemiological studies are being conducted in Europe, North America, and Asia. No study has however been conducted in Africa to determine the prevalence and distribution of ESBLs on the continent. This literature review aimed at(More)
INTRODUCTION Cholera represents a public health problem in developing countries like Mali. AIM This work aims to describe the characteristics of the cholera epidemics which occurred in Mali between 1995 and 2004. METHOD A retrospective survey was conducted within the Division of the fight against the diseases of epidemic potential and the Institute of(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the factors associated with the observance of treatment ARV among patients followed in hospital medium to Bamako. METHOD Inquire longitudinal with collection of the data near the patients followed in one of the three greater sites of assumption of responsibility of the people reached with the VIH/SIDA to Mali. The people were regarded(More)
An hospital survey, performed in Bamako (Mali, West Africa) showed 7.5% haemoglobin AC, 0.4% haemoglobin CC, 1.6% haemoglobin SC and 0.2% haemoglobin CA (haemoglobin C-beta+thalassaemia). Haemoglobin C was mostly prevalent among Bobo, Mossi, Senoufo, Minianka and Dogon coming from the Southern border of Mali. Haemoglobin SC and to a lesser extent(More)
