A retrospective cost-of-illness analysis using data from 11 hospitals in the greater Milwaukee area and epidemiologic data collected during the 1993 waterborne outbreak of cryptosporidiosis found the average total costs were $116, $475, and $7,808, respectively. Expand
Identification of a novel pathogenic Borrelia species causing Lyme borreliosis with unusually high spirochaetaemia: a descriptive study.
TLDR
Clinicians should be aware of this new B burgdorferi sensu lato genospecies in the upper midwestern USA, which causes Lyme borreliosis with unusually high spirochaetaemia, and the usefulness of oppA1 PCR for diagnosis. Expand
Transmission of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus by organ transplantation.
TLDR
Two clusters of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus infection transmitted through organ transplantation are documented, with a single, unique strain of LCMV identified in each cluster. Expand
Evolutionary dynamics and genomic features of the Elizabethkingia anophelis 2015 to 2016 Wisconsin outbreak strain
TLDR
An atypically large outbreak of Elizabethkingia anophelis infections occurred in Wisconsin and it is shown that it was caused by a single strain with thirteen characteristic genomic regions, providing a dramatic example of the potential impact of pathogen evolutionary dynamics on infectious disease epidemiology. Expand
Parental vaccine refusal in Wisconsin: a case-control study.
TLDR
Differences in vaccine attitudes, beliefs, and information sources among parents of exempt and vaccinated children are explored and support the need for improved methods to communicate vaccine safety information. Expand
