Detection of Polioviruses in Sewage Using Cell Culture and Molecular Methods

The work presented here demonstrates the utility of a two-step algorithm for environmental poliovirus surveillance based on: preselection of sewage samples tested for the presence of enteroviral genetic material-RT-PCR assay and detection of infectious viruses by cell culture technique (L20B for polioviruses and RD for polio and other non-polio enteroviruses). RD and L20B cell lines were tested to determine their sensitivity for isolation of viruses from environmental samples (sewage). Finally

Forest fire detection using wireless sensor networks

survey Numerous solutions have been proposed and implemented for this problem. Most common systems used in field work are video surveillance systems. Video cameras are sensitive to smoke only in day time. Fire sensitive cameras at night, using IR thermal imaging cameras for heat flux detecting and using backscattering of laser light, detect the smoke particles. This fire alert system has a few limitations because of environmental conditions like dust particles, mist, shadows and so on. Another method

Method for pre-processing of level crossing image

Actuality of problem in the improvement of transport safety at level crossings (LC) is caused by increasing the number of vehicles and reducing discipline of vehicle drivers. One of ways for solution of this problem is associated with using the video surveillance systems for monitoring danger area of level crossing. In such systems due to the limited bandwidth of data channel usually the image compression techniques are used. In this paper the pre-processing method for compression of images is

Patterns of Drug-Resistant Bacteria in a General Hospital, China, 2011–2016

data from CHINET surveillance between 2005 and 2014 showed that the five selected species, including E. coli, K. pneumoniae, P. aeruginosa, A. baumannii, and S. aureus accounted for 51.9 to 60.3% of all isolates (Hu et al. 2016). In a four-year study in Italy, researchers found that Gram-negative bacteria appeared to be the major causes of infection (Reale et al. 2017). Thus, in terms of quantity and proportion, Gram-negative bacteria have become a major threat in nosocomial infections. During the

Antibiotic Susceptibility of Cronobacter spp. Isolated from Clinical Samples

, the excessive use of antibiotics in the hospital environment facilitates the possibility of emerging of a high level of antimicrobial resistance among clinical strains. Therefore, the surveillance studies would assist in prevention of the developing this phenomenon and in keeping Cronobacter susceptible to the majority of the available clinical antimicrobial agents. Conclusions A low level of antibiotic resistance among Cronobacter spp. in our region is due to a good antibiotic usage policy. The

CRYPTOGENIC STROKE IN AN AIRLINE TRANSPORT PILOT

This case presentation discusses an airline captain who suffered a cerebrovascular event. Despite extensive investigation, no underlying cause or contributing factors could be identified. He went on to make a full recovery from his stroke, and after two years applied for renewal of his medical certificate. This presentation discusses the aeromedical certification process, including the restrictions and health surveillance measures put in place once he was recertified.

Between the land and the sea: Refugee experiences of the lighthouse as a real and symbolic border

Introduction As the refugee crisis extends across Europe and elsewhere, seascapes are taking on new dimensions, with borders being redrawn away from shorelines. Refugees are now crossing waters that have become extended to constitute newly forged sovereign borders that are subject to increased maritime surveillance, organised to prevent refugees landing on European and Australian shores. This has reinforced the significance of the distinction between land and sea and foregrounded the role of

PLASMID-MEDIATED QUINOLONE RESISTANCE – PMQR

Fluoroquinolones (FQ) are broad-spectrum antimicrobial agents widely used to treat a range of infections in clinical medicine. However, the surveillance studies demonstrate that fluoroquinolone resistance rates increased in Enterobacteriaceae in the past years. FQ inhibit bacterial DNA synthesis by interfering with the action of two bacterial enzymes – DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV. There are two categories of quinolone resistance mechanisms: chromosomally encoded and acquired

Enteroviruses (EVs) are among viral pathogens that can cause acute flaccid paralysis (AFP). This study represents an overview of EVs isolated through AFP surveillance in Poland between 1999 and 2014. The presence of enteroviruses was studied in stool samples that were collected from 747 AFP cases and their asymptomatic contacts. Fifty five (6.12%) cases of AFP were associated with enterovirus isolation. Out of the 55 positive cases, 40 were associated with detection of enterovirus in patient
