E coli cases slow as more details on pathogen emerge

E coli cases slow as more details on pathogen emerge

first_imgJun 14, 2011 (CIDRAP News) – German authorities investigating the nation’s biggest Escherichia coli outbreak said today that the number of new cases has dropped significantly, as European scientists released the latest results from a genetic analysis of the unusual strain, which they say might have a human reservoir. EAEC is a common cause of diarrhea in travelers and in children in developing countries and is one of the most important enteric pathogens in AIDS patients, say the two reports. “In contrast to STEC strains that have an animal reservoir, mostly ruminants, [EAEC] have a human reservoir,” says the editorial, written by ECDC officials. According to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), the latest totals include 2,514 EHEC cases and 818 HUS cases. Thirty-six deaths have been reported. Since yesterday the number of EHEC infections has risen by 6 and HUS cases by 1. Because EAEC strains are common worldwide, the hybrid organism probably has a human rather than an animal reservoir, and it may be able to persist in humans for a long time, the authors say. The authors of the research report express the view that the addition of the Shiga toxin factor to an EAEC strain already capable of causing persistent diarrhea has resulted in a “hypervirulent strain.” Besides having the ability to produce Shiga toxin, the hybrid strain has a virulence factor (the receptor for iron-chelating aerobactin) associated with extra-intestinal E coli strains, such as those that cause urinary tract infections, they note. Jun 14 Eurosurveillance report The boy died in a Hanover hospital, where he had been in intensive care for several days, according to the AFP report. His family had also been sick, but all were recovering. The research report, written by authors from Denmark, Italy, and the United States, says the rare serotype O104:H4 was seen previously in two HUS patients in Germany in 2001, one case in France in 2004, one HUS patient in Korea in 2005, two HUS cases in the Republic of Georgia in 2009, and one uncomplicated case of diarrhea in Finland in 2010. Meanwhile, German authorities recently expanded their warning about eating sprouts to include home-grown products. Lower Saxony state reported that home-grown sprouts may be linked to a family’s EHEC infections, which prompted officials to recommend that people also avoid homegrown raw sprouts, according to the latest update from Germany’s Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR). However, so far lab studies have not detected E coli O104:H4 in the seeds. Jun 14 Eurosurveillance editorial Jun 12 BfR statement The current outbreak strain bears a particular similarity to the Georgia strain, but the significance of the finding is unclear because there is no known epidemiologic link between the two outbreaks, the editorial states. “It should also be noted that [EAEC] are common in all populations of the world, industrialized and developing, but that no animal reservoir has been described,” they add. “This observation suggests the startling possibility that this new O104 strain may have the capacity to persist among human populations, perhaps indefinitely.” Germany’s Robert Koch Institute (RKI) said in an update today that the numbers of new enterohemorrhagic E coli (EHEC) infections and hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) cases have markedly slowed. It said the latest illness onset for EHEC diarrhea was on Jun 9 and for HUS with diarrhea was on Jun 8. The outbreak is believed to have been caused by contaminated sprouts. See also: The number of deaths by the ECDC’s count held at 36 earlier today, but German officials reported the death of a 2-year-old boy, the first child to die in the EHEC outbreak, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported today. The burden of disease in adults, especially women, has been an unusual feature of the outbreak. EHEC outbreaks typically hit younger age-groups the hardest. Dr Andreas Hensel, who heads the BfR, said in the statement that growing sprouts at home is common and that many stores sell cultivation receptacles. “If the seeds are already contaminated with germs, even observance of kitchen hygiene rules does not protect from an EHEC infection,” he said. Jun 14 ECDC update On the scientific side, a report and accompanying editorial published today by Eurosurveillance provided additional details about the outbreak strain, E coli O104:H4, reinforcing previous reports that it has characteristics of both enteroaggregative E coli (EAEC) and Shiga toxin–producing E coli (STEC). The articles describe the strain as an EAEC that acquired the ability to produce Shiga toxin (verotoxin).last_img read more

Nishioka savors first career ATP title

Nishioka savors first career ATP title

first_img Yoshihito Nishioka lifts the trophy after winning the Shenzhen Open on Sunday in Guangdong, China. | AFP-JIJI It was the young Japanese’s first ATP title and the importance of the occasion was evident in his reaction.Immediately there was a primal scream, his raw emotion impossible to contain.Then a fall, as Nishioka splayed his body onto the court and held his face in his hands. He appeared to be on the verge of tears as he raced to shake his opponent’s hand and began to bask in the glow of his accomplishment.It was the type of reaction players normally reserve for a larger stage — Centre Court at Wimbledon or the U.S. Open’s Arthur Ashe Stadium. But to understand Nishioka’s display of emotion, it’s crucial to understand the road he traveled to get to that point.In the spring of 2017 Nishioka looked poised to take the next step in his young career. Then age 21, the native of Mie Prefecture reached a career high of world No. 58 that March.At Indian Wells, one of the sport’s premier tournaments outside of the four grand slams, Nishioka topped veterans Ivo Karlovic and Tomas Berdych to earn a place in the fourth round. There, he gave three-time major champion Stan Wawrinka all he could handle in a three-set thriller that the Swiss star took in a tiebreaker.It all went wrong the next week in Miami.Up 3-1 in the first set against Jack Sock, Nishioka slid to his left, stretched to get his racket on the ball, and tore his left ACL. He wouldn’t play another competitive match for eight months.Already facing a disadvantage because of his short stature — Nishioka is just 170-cm tall — anything short of a complete recovery would seriously hurt him in the area where he most excels: quickness.Speaking at a news conference on Monday at the Rakuten Open in Tokyo, Nishioka was candid when asked whether he ever doubted he could get back to this level.“When I was injured and after surgery, I was just training how to walk and how to run,” Nishioka said.“I was really afraid. My weapons are movement and footwork . . . it was very scary.”Through that arduous recovery, the success of other Japanese players kept him motivated.Nishioka noted Yuichi Sugita’s title last summer at the Antalya Open in Turkey and Taro Daniel’s Istanbul Open win earlier this year as having pushed him back toward the top 100.“I wanted to get a trophy as well,” he said.Nine months after his return, and after having struggled to rediscover the game that had made him one of the tour’s more promising young stars, Nishioka is back into the top 100 — he rose to No. 95 on Monday — and finally has that elusive first trophy.What’s next on his to-do list? To get people to stop mistaking him for that other Japanese tennis player.“Please remember my name,” he told the crowd in Shenzhen, smiling. “It’s not (Kei) Nishikori, I’m Nishioka.” At 40-30, Yoshihito Nishioka fired a second serve up the middle and watched as his opponent dumped a return into the net.It was a routine point at an opportune time, with the error from Pierre-Hugues Herbert coming on Nishioka’s fifth championship point in the finals of the Shenzhen Open in China.

Discrimination must be fought, says Mbalula on Semenya’s IAAF ruling

Discrimination must be fought, says Mbalula on Semenya’s IAAF ruling

first_imgDiscrimination must be fought, says ANC election head Fikile Mbalula after Caster Semenya lost her case to stop the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) from forcing her and other athletes to lower their testosterone levels through medication.Speaking on the sidelines of an ANC media briefing on the readiness of the ANC in the coming elections, Mbalula pointed out that Semenya was expected to be subjected to testosterone-modifying injections.“It affects my emotions terribly, that a human being can be subjected to such. And this is what they have concluded now. They do it with Caster. There have been people with high testosterone before, including the current record holder of the distance Caster is running.“A rule has been made in the world for Caster Semenya.“We the people of South Africa condemn [the decision], we must march on, till the last moment with Caster, and we cannot let it go just like that.“We must invest state money and fight discrimination. The United Nations and the people of the world agree with us. We do it for Caster, we do it for many other generations to come. Not in our name will this be done unchallenged.”Semenya will compete in what could be her last-ever international 800m race when she lines up at the Diamond League season opener in Doha on Friday night.Meanwhile, it was reported on Wednesday that Semenya said she would consider taking the fight with IAAF back to court.The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) confirmed on Wednesday it had dismissed requests for arbitration filed by Semenya and Athletics South Africa (ASA) in their attempt to have controversial new IAAF regulations overturned.“Ms Semenya is reviewing the decision with her legal team and considering whether to file an appeal,” Semenya’s lawyers said in a statement.The new rules would force athletes with differences of sexual development (DSD) to take medication in order to reduce their natural testosterone levels to 5nmol/L in order to compete internationally over distances ranging from 400m to the mile (1.609km).(Additional reporting by Daniel Friedman)For more news your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more

Beware These 3 TaxTime Cyber Traps

Beware These 3 TaxTime Cyber Traps

first_imgFebruary 28, 2014 This story originally appeared on FOX BUSINESS While a savvy small-business owner may not be fooled to open up an email about a Nigerian prince … an email about a tax rebate may very well get a click.Cyber-security firm Symantec says cyber criminals are already using tax season messaging to attack small business owners.“The bad guys in general are always looking to take advantage of topical subjects, like natural disasters or celebrity deaths,” says Symantec expert Kevin Haley.And taxes, says Haley, can be a particularly lucrative topic for criminals.“What makes [tax scams] stronger is that there’s a fear out there, and a strong motivator that something is wrong with your taxes, or you haven’t paid, or you’re about to get fined,” says Haley. “It’s very, very effective.”Here are three types of scams to be on the lookout for:Related: 7 Tax Apps for Small BusinessesNo. 1: Financial TrojansHaley says cybercriminals are sending out emails using the TurboTax name to lure small business owners into opening the letters. Once they open these “Trojan horse” emails and click on the attachment, malware is immediately downloaded that monitors computer browsing.“So when it sees you’re browsing a bank’s site and you log in, [the malware] gets that log-in and password, and sends it off to the bad guy,” says Haley.No. 2: Phishing AttacksPhishing attacks are simpler – but also effective. With this sort of attack, a small business owner might receive an email with a message that says: “In order to get your rebate faster, you need to log in and tell them you’re okay with us transferring money.”Haley says the cybercriminals then steal bank usernames and passwords, after getting business owners to log in on the fake pages.“This is also very prevalent in tax season,” says Haley.Related: Pension Plan for Your Small BusinessNo. 3: Ransomware and CryptolockerRansomware and Cryptolocker sound frightening – and they should be. Haley says these attacks lock up computers and prevents users from accessing any files or programs.“You’ll see a message pretending to be from the FBI or the Department of Homeland Security,” says Haley. The message generally has instructions for how to pay a fine to unlock the computer.But Haley says even those who pay the fine often don’t get their computers unlocked. And with Cryptolocker– a variation on the Ransomware attacks—computer files are encrypted and can’t be retrieved.“It makes recovery impossible … it’s an even more frightening twist on this,” says Haley.And because even the wariest business owners can fall prey to attacks, Haley says the best offense is a good defense.“It’s really important that people back up small business computers and make sure their data is backed up and saved,” says Haley.Related: Will Your Business Return Be Audited?
