Abstract null null Objectives null Rubella cases in the Central African Republic (CAF) are currently identified during measles surveillance. This study aimed to investigate rubella epidemiology between 2015 and 2016 and to provide baseline genotype data for monitoring future rubella control efforts. null null null Methods null 831 measles IgM negative or equivocal sera from 2015/2016 were tested for rubella IgM antibodies and 350 rubella IgM positive sera collected between 2008 and 2016 were sel...

Abstract null null This study assessed the risk factors driving the epidemic of COVID-19 associated mucormycosis (COVID-Mucor) in Indiathat accompanied the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly the second wave. We analysed the risk factors among 164 participants:132 COVID-Mucor(cases) and 32 non-COVID-Mucor(controls)using the data from a prospective cohort study of mucormycosis over oneyear. Diabetes mellitus remained a pivotal risk factor in both groups (97%) while uncontrolled diabetes mellitus (OR:...

Placental malaria is a public health burden particularly in Africa as it causes severe symptoms and results in stillbirths or maternal deaths. Plasmodium falciparum protein VAR2CSA drives placental malaria (PM) in pregnant women by adhering to chondroitin sulfate A (CSA) on the placenta. VAR2CSA is a primary vaccine candidate for PM with two vaccines based on it already under clinical trials. The first cryo-EM three-dimensional structure of Pf CSA-VAR2CSA complex revealed crucial interacting res...

BACKGROUND The IL-12/IFN-γ axis has a vital role to regulate and control intramacrophagic pathogens (e.g., Leishmania spp and mycobacteria spp). The predisposition of mycobacteria and other intramacrphagic pathogens usually cause defects in this pathway, known as Mendelian susceptibility to mycobacterial diseases(MSMD).. However, Leishmania infections are rarely documented in those individuals having defective IL-12/IFN-γ axis. OBJECTIVE To investigate the genetic defects of IL-12/IFN-γ axis in ...

OBJECTIVE To estimate the magnitude of impact of the 2014-2015 Ebola virus Disease epidemic (EVD) and determine trends of mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) care services in Liberia, we conducted interrupted time-series analyses, using five years of routinely collected health information system data. METHOD We used a segmented linear regression model to generate estimates and predictions for trends in three TB service indicators before, during and after EVD, from January 2013 to December 2017. RESU...

COVID-19 presents in various ways, but mainly as a pulmonary disease (Marzano 2020). Skin manifestations have been reported, including reactivation of the varicella zoster virus (Marzano 2020). In this case report, we describe two adults developing herpes zoster after vaccination with tozinameran (the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA vaccine). A possible cause for this reaction is a transient lymphocytopenia that occurs after the vaccination - similar to that in COVID-19 disease (Mulligan 2020, Wan...

Abstract null null Objectives null Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection has significantly impacted the global public health system, making nucleic acid detection an important tool in epidemic prevention and control. Detection kits based on real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (rRT-PCR) have been widely used in clinics, but their analytical sensitivity (limit of detection) remains controversial. Moreover, there is limited research evaluating ...

BACKGROUND This study was carried out to determine seroprevalence, and risk factors of chikungunya (CHIKV), dengue (DENV) and Zika (ZIKV) viruses in Tanzania. METHODS The study involve Buhigwe, Kalambo, Kilindi, Kinondoni, Kondoa, Kyela, Mvomero, and Ukerewe districts. Blood samples were collected from individuals recruited from households and healthcare facilities. An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was used to screen for immunoglobulin G antibodies against CHIKV, DENV and ZIKV. RESULTS A tot...
