We reported a patient with autoimmunity (multiple sclerosis), immunodeficiency (hypogammaglobulinemia with severe infections), enteropathy (diarrhea with intestinal inflammation), splenomegaly, lymphadenopathy and lymphocytic infiltration of non-lymphoid organs (lung, gut and brain). The patient was found to have a heterozygous mutation in cytotoxic T lymphocyte antigen-4, and had excellent response to abatacept.

Abstract null null Introduction null The genome of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium contains 13 operons with homology to fimbrial genes. null null null Methods null To investigate the involvement of these fimbrial gene clusters in the expression of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), which is an inducible enzyme involved in the synthesis of prostanoids, in J774 macrophages infected with S. enterica serovar Typhimurium, we constructed strains carrying a mutation in genes encoding the putative subuni...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Carbapenem-nonsusceptible Enterobacterales (CNSE) are a growing global threat. Carbapenemases are often produced by plasmids, which allow rapid transmission. This study aimed to investigate (1) the bacterial type (2) resistant genes (3) antimicrobial susceptibility and (4) risk factors for acquisition of carbapenemase-producing carbapenem-nonsusceptible Enterobacterales (CP-CNSE) and non-carbapenemase-producing carbapenem-nonsusceptible Enterobacterales (non-CP-CNSE) bacteremi...

Background null Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has been an important nosocomial pathogen in our neonatal units since 1990s. To understand the longitudinal changing molecular epidemiology of these MRSA isolates, we conducted this study. null Materials null From 2003 to 2018, we collected clinical MRSA isolates from 536 infants hospitalized at neonatal units of a medical center in northern Taiwan. First isolate from each infant was characterized. null Results null The case/isol...

The B.1.1.7 (Alpha) variant has been detected in Mumbai, India during February 2021. Subsequently, we retrieved 43 sequences from specimens of 51 COVID-19 cases from Mumbai. The sequence analysis revealed that the cases were mainly affected with Alpha variant which suggests its role in community transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in Mumbai, India.

Abstract null null Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is associated with significant morbidity and mortality in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients. CMV is a ubiquitous Herpesviridae virus with a wide spectrum of pathologies in humans. Immunocompetent patients generally develop a benign, self-limited mononucleosis-like syndrome, whereas gastrointestinal tissue-invasive disease is more frequently seen in immunocompromised. The clinical manifestations of CMV colitis or proctitis are d...

BACKGROUND We conducted a longitudinal survey for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) carriage in nursing homes and long-term care facilities (LTCFs) in northern Taiwan. METHODS From July 2016 to February 2017, healthcare workers and residents in four institutions were enrolled. One swab sample from nares and another swab sample from umbilicus were obtained from each participant for detection of MRSA at enrolment and then follow-up samples were collected every two months for addit...

Background null The correlation between the clinical manifestations and fecal viral load of norovirus (NoV) infection remains unknown. null Methods null We established a SYBR® Green-based real-time quantitative reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) method to quantify NoV and then sequenced its genomes from the feces of patients admitted at the Chang Gung Memorial Hospital from 2017 to 2018. null Results null NoV GII.4 Sydney (n = 21, 36.2%) and GII.P16-GII.2 (n = 19, 32.8%), ...

Background null Few studies address the dynamic changes of body mass index (BMI) Z-scores during infancy with breastfeeding and their impact on childhood atopic diseases. null Methods null A total of 183 children from a birth cohort regularly followed-up for 4 years were enrolled in this study. Time series data of BMI Z-scores from 1 month to 2 years of age was clustered using K-means method in R software. Breastfeeding status during the first 6 months of life was recorded and classified. The to...
