First Case Of Drug-Resistant Super Gonorrhea Emerges

  First Case Of Drug-Resistant Super Gonorrhea Emerges After experts warned drugs against gonorrhea were becoming ineffective, the first case of absolute resistance to first-line therapy has been reported in England.On 27 March 2018, the first case of a highly drug-resistant form of gonorrhea was reported in the UK. Public Health England issued a warning stating that a British man had been infected with a case of "super" gonorrhea, named as such because the bacteria had shown complete resistance to the recommended dual first-line therapy.

Carried out by the infection prevention team at University of Florida Health Jacksonville, the review looked at 90 cesarean section (C-section) deliveries which included 30 cases of women who developed infections and 60 cases of women who did not.

The team identified four pre-delivery risk factors for developing a C-section infection, including having a prior C-section, smoking, illicit drug use, and being obese.

Short exposure to air pollution spike could increase risk of lung infections in babies and children

  Short exposure to air pollution spike could increase risk of lung infections in babies and children New US research has found a link between pollution causing fine particulate matter, also known as PM2.5, and an increased risk of acute lower respiratory infection (ALRI) in young children.&nbsp;Carried out by researchers from Intermountain Healthcare, Brigham Young University and University of Utah, the groundbreaking new study is the largest to date to look at a possible link between PM2.5 and ALRI, following 146,397 individuals over a 17-year period.

Women who developed a C-section infection were 25.3 more likely to have previously used illicit drugs, and 8.41 times more likely to have had a prior C-section.

They were also 3.8 times more likely to have smoked.

They were also more likely to have had a higher body-mass index (BMI), with the average BMI for women who developed an infection found to be 42.4, compared to an average BMI of 36.9 in the group of women who did not develop an infection

The study authors, Stefanie Buchanan, RN, BSN, CIC, and Marko Predic, MS, commented on the findings saying the results suggest more patient education was needed following a C-section.

"We found that women leave the hospital with a breadth of information on caring for a newborn and often overlook the education provided on caring for their wound," said Buchanan.

The infection prevention team at University of Florida Health Jacksonville have since updated their standard of care for women pre- and post- C-section following the study.

The new research was presented at the 45th Annual Conference of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) taking place June 13- 15 in Minneapolis.

The results can also be found published online in the American Journal of Infection Control.
