Influence of human immunodeficiency virus infection on the course of hepatitis C virus infection: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
There is a significantly elevated RR of severe liver disease in persons who are coinfecting with HIV and HCV, which has important implications for timely diagnosis and consideration of treatment in coinfected persons.
The epidemiology of invasive group A streptococcal disease in Victoria, Australia
TLDR
The incidence and severity of invasive group A streptococcal infection in Victoria, Australia is estimated to be between 0.1 and 0.5% of the population each year.
An outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease at the Melbourne Aquarium, April 2000: investigation and case–control studies
TLDR
The source and risk factors associated with Australia's largest outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease are studied to investigate the source andrisk factors.
Evidence of patient‐to‐patient transmission of hepatitis C virus through contaminated intravenous anaesthetic ampoules
TLDR
The results suggest that patient‐to‐patient transmission occurred in both episodes via contamination of intravenous anaesthetic ampoules with HCV used on multiple patients, and should not be used for more than one patient.
Adrenalectomy reverses the impaired pyrogenic responses to interleukin-beta in obese Zucker rats.
TLDR
Impaired responses to IL-1 beta in obese mutants may be due to inhibitory actions of glucocorticoids on either prostaglandin synthesis or CRF release within the hypothalamus.
The impact of diagnosis by legionella urinary antigen test on the epidemiology and outcomes of Legionnaires' disease
TLDR
Clinician use of the urinary antigen test is encouraged in cases of community-acquired pneumonia where Legionnaires' disease is a possible diagnosis, in conjunction with culture of clinical specimens, to facilitate a 5-day reduction for the delay between onset of illness and notification.
The effect of interscapular brown adipose tissue removal on body-weight and cold response in the mouse
TLDR
It is suggested that brown adipose tissue is implicated in dietary themiogenesis in the mouse by leading to an increase in body-weight of normal, lean mice as compared to anaesthetized controls.
HLA-B27 expression and reactive arthritis susceptibility in two patient cohorts infected with Salmonella Typhimurium.
TLDR
Patients affected by two single source outbreaks of S. Typhimurium gastroenteritis were diagnosed with reactive arthritis, and susceptibility to ReA was not increased in HLA-B27 positive individuals or males but was greater in those of Caucasian descent.
