Leprosy in colombian children and adolescents.
We report 12 cases of leprosy in patients 5-17 years of age, summarizing our clinical, micro biological and treatment findings....
An Outbreak of Mycobacterium abscessus Infection in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in Kuwait.
Mycobacterium abscessus has been associated with respiratory tract infections, localized skin and soft tissue infections and sepsis. However, outbreaks of M. abscessus are rare. : to report an outbreak of M. abscessus causing respiratory tract infections in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) in...
Pharmacokinetics of pediatric lopinavir/ritonavir tablets in children when administered twice daily according to FDA weight bands.
We evaluated the pharmacokinetics (PK) of LPV/r in children, administered twice daily according to the FDA weight bands, using pediatric tablets. Fifty-three HIV-infected children were included in the PK substudy of the Paediatric European Network for the Treatment of AIDS 18 trial (KONCERT). In thi...

Impact of 4.0% chlorhexidine cord cleansing on the bacteriologic profile of the newborn umbilical stump in rural Sylhet District, Bangladesh...
: Randomized trials from South Asia indicate umbilical cord chlorhexidine cleansing reduces mortality and omphalitis. No community-based data are available on bacteriological profile of the cord, early neonatal colonization dynamics, or impact of cord cleansing on colonizing organism...
Evaluation of haemophilus influenzae type b vaccine for routine immunization in Nepali infants.
We determined the immunogenicity of HibCV in Nepali infants, before its introduction into the routine immunization schedule. : Ninety infants recruited at Patan Hospital, Kathmandu, received 3 doses of the HibCV with routine immunizations (diphtheria, tetanus, whole cell pertussis-he...
Antibiotic susceptibility of Kingella kingae isolates from children with skeletal system infections.
Hemagglutination inhibition antibody titers as a correlate of protection for inactivated influenza vaccines in children.
: The use of the 1:40 HI adult correlate of protection is not appropriate when evaluating influenza vaccines in children. Although a cutoff of 1:110 may be used to predict the conventional 50% clinical protection rate, a titer of 1:330 would predict an 80% protective level, which would seem to be mor...
Genetic differences between invasive and noninvasive neonatal group B streptococcal isolates.
: Our results illustrate a large molecular diversity among neonatal noninvasive GBS strains. Invasive strains, however, represent only a small proportion of the noninvasive GBS population. These findings suggest a selection process that prefers more virulent strains during invasion....
