[Foodborne infections and intoxications in Poland in 2008].
A total of 12 217 bacterial foodborne infections and intoxications were registered in 2008 (incidence 32.1/100 000 population). Unlike bacterial infections, the incidence of viral foodborne infections increased in the recent years (2008 - 85.4 vs. 2007 - 57.1; 2006 - 54.21; 2005 - 32.8, and median 2...
Pet-related infections in humans are diverse, rather infrequent considering the high number of pets in households and often unrecognized. This article briefly covers a couple of them, caused by bacteria (salmonellosis and campylobacteriosis, cat-scratch disease, fish tank granuloma, psittacosis), fu...
RNA interference-based therapeutics: new strategies to fight infectious disease.
For many years, there has been an ongoing search for new compounds that can selectively alter gene expression as a new way to treat human disease by addressing targets that are otherwise "undruggable" with traditional pharmaceutical approaches involving small molecules or proteins. R...
Viral, bacterial and parasitic etiology of pediatric diarrhea in Gaza, Palestine.
The occurrence of enteropathogens identified was as follows: rotavirus 42/150 (28%), Entamoeba histolytica/dispar 23/150 (15%), Shigella spp. 9/150 (6%), Campylobacter coli/jejuni and Escherichia coli O157:H7 7/150 (5%) each, Salmonella spp. 3/150 (2%), Giardia intestinalis 1/150 (1%), and Strongylo...
[Role of host in spontaneous recovery from viral hepatitis C: the body's condition at the moment of infection].
The condition of the host at the moment of infection is that its immune competence largely determines the efficiency, kinetics, and profile (Thl/Th2) of a further specific immunity response and, accordingly, the outcome of penetration of hepatitis C virus (HCV) into the body and subsequent acute inf...

Delusional parasitosis in the elderly: a review and report of six cases from northern Finland.
A patient with delusional parasitosis has a strong conviction of being infested with parasites: for example, lice or worms. Such a patient is not satisfied with assurances or test results that no parasites are present, but is so convinced that he or she will go as far as to bring the parasites in "m...
