Frequent Transient Hepatitis C viremia without Seroconversion among Healthcare Workers in Cairo, Egypt
TLDR
The findings call for further investigation of potential immune protection against HCV persistence in this high risk group of healthcare workers, particularly in early stages of training. Expand
Epidemiological and virological characteristics of symptomatic acute hepatitis E in Greater Cairo, Egypt.
TLDR
The sporadic nature of HEV in Greater Cairo was documented, characterized a large number of Egyptian HEV genotype 1 strains and identified living in a rural area as a potential risk factor for infection. Expand
Impact of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines on pneumococcal meningitis cases in France between 2001 and 2014: a time series analysis
TLDR
Unlike other European countries, the total PM cases in France declined only after introduction of PCV13, which suggests that vaccine pressure alone does not explain pneumococcal epidemiological changes and that other factors could play a role. Expand
Analysis of IL28B Variants in an Egyptian Population Defines the 20 Kilobases Minimal Region Involved in Spontaneous Clearance of Hepatitis C Virus
TLDR
HCV clearance in Egypt was associated with a region of IL28B smaller than that identified in European populations, and involved the non-synonymous IL28Bs SNP, rs8103142, and three SNPs at the two bounds of the region were monomorphic. Expand
Comparison of liver biopsy and noninvasive techniques for liver fibrosis assessment in patients infected with HCV‐genotype 4 in Egypt
TLDR
Fib4 may be used to assess the F2 threshold, which decides whether treatment should be proposed or delayed, in chronic hepatitis C G4‐infected patients in Egypt, because of its validity and its easiness to perform. Expand
The ABCs of viral hepatitis that define biomarker signatures of acute viral hepatitis
TLDR
The combined discovery and biomarker validation approach revealed a previously unrecognized virus‐specific induction of host proteins that could distinguish HCV patients from HAV‐ and HBV‐infected individuals or healthy controls. Expand
Prevalence of HIV-1 drug resistance mutations in antiretroviral naïve pregnant women from Cambodia, Cameroon, Central African Republic and Vietnam
TLDR
The prevalence of HIV-1 drug resistance mutations in antiretroviral naive pregnant women from Cambodia, Cameroon, Central African Republic and Vietnam and Vietnam is studied. Expand
A community survey of antibiotic consumption among children in Madagascar and Senegal: the importance of healthcare access and care quality
TLDR
Factors such as density of healthcare facilities, prescriber training and national policy must be taken into account when developing strategies to optimize antibiotic consumption in LICs. Expand
Evaluating the motivation of Red Cross Health volunteers in the COVID-19 pandemic: a mixed-methods study protocol
TLDR
This mixed-methods study investigates volunteer motivation using ethnographic methods and social network listening to evaluate whether and how socio-political conditions and discourses concerning COVID-19 interact with volunteer experiences, working conditions and organisational relations to influence volunteer motivation. Expand
Outpatient antibiotic use attributable to viral acute lower respiratory tract infections during the cold season in France, 2010-2017.
TLDR
The results highlight the major role of viral infections in driving antibiotic prescriptions, especially in young children, and highlight the need for clear insight into antibiotic overuse. Expand
