A group of international experts came together through a joint initiative by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to create a standardized international terminology with which to describe acquired resistance profiles in Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus spp.
Comparison of PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science, and Google Scholar: strengths and weaknesses
TLDR
The content coverage and practical utility of PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science, and Google Scholar are compared and PubMed remains an optimal tool in biomedical electronic research.
Factors associated with
TLDR
The suboptimal compliance to vaccinations continues to be a major public health problem and the number of children receiving vaccinations is on the rise.
Colistin: the revival of polymyxins for the management of multidrug-resistant gram-negative bacterial infections.
TLDR
Recent studies of patients who received intravenous polymyxins for the treatment of serious P. aeruginosa and Acinetobacter baumannii infections of various types, including pneumonia, bacteremia, and urinary tract infections, have led to the conclusion that these antibiotics have acceptable effectiveness and considerably less toxicity than was reported in old studies.
Toxicity of polymyxins: a systematic review of the evidence from old and recent studies
TLDR
New evidence shows that polymyxins have less toxicity than previously reported, and the avoidance of concurrent administration of nephrotoxic and/or neurotoxic drugs, careful dosing, as well as more meticulous management of fluid and electrolyte abnormalities and use of critical care services may be some of the reasons for the discrepancy between data reported.
Severe cytomegalovirus infection in apparently immunocompetent patients: a systematic review
TLDR
Severe life-threatening complications of CMV infection in immunocompetent patients may not be as rare as previously thought.
Obesity and infection.
Comparison of SCImago journal rank indicator with journal impact factor
TLDR
Although further validation is warranted, the novel SJR indicator poses as a serious alternative to the well‐established journal IF, mainly due to its openaccess nature, larger source database, and assessment of the quality of citations.
