Cold chain conditions of meat and dairy products in Mexican retail food stores

Ema Maldonado, JL Zaragoza-Ramírez, PA Martínez-Hernández, CC González-Ariceaga & JL García-Méndez
Domestic and international markets show growing concern on food safety and shelf life of perishable animal products that can be affected by cold chain storage conditions in retail food stores. Official Mexican Norms (OMN) determine the official values applied to these animal food products under those conditions. The purpose of this study was to compare cold chain conditions of meat and dairy products among five retail food stores established in a local municipality of Mexico...

Sex and other host factors influencing urinary tract infection pathogenesis

Patrick D. Olson & David A. Hunstad
Biological sex represents the most important host factor that influences urinary tract infections (UTIs), which are most commonly caused by uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC). UTI susceptibility varies by sex and age throughout the patient lifespan, although the disease disproportionally afflicts women throughout the middle ages. Substantial male patient populations are also affected, and morbidity in complicated UTI is higher in men. This review highlights sex-related discrepancies in the disease, and how sex may influence the...

Treatment of chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome – UPOINT

Aaron C. Shoskes, Dominic Tran-Nguyen & Daniel Shoskes
Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) is a common condition, however many common therapies used in practice fail to show benefit when subjected to large randomized controlled trials. This discrepancy may be because CP/CPPS is a heterogeneous syndrome rather than one specific disease, which can explain the prior failure of any one therapy for all patients. In order to direct appropriate therapy, a six-point clinical phenotyping system was developed to evaluate patients with CP/CPPS. The...

Prevention of catheter-associated UTI

Paul Anantharajah Tambyah, Leyland Chuang & Edmund Chiong
We surveyed existing guidelines and literature on the prevention of catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI). Key principles include avoiding unnecessary urinary catheterization, maintaining a closed aseptic drainage system and minimizing duration of catheterization. Institutional guidelines on appropriate indications for catheterization, reminder and stop-order systems, and policies on restricted urinary catheterization and nurse-directed catheter removal are effective and recommended. Urinary catheter care bundles and infection control interventions described in various guidelines are summarized and should be...

Antibiotic therapy in patients with renal impairment

Frieder Keller
Every second drug needs dose adjustment to kidney function. The Cockcroft and Gault formula gives an estimate of the individual kidney function whereas the CKD-EPI and other formulas state only the standardized GFR. Pharmacokinetics should be considered to avoid accumulation and toxic drug effects. Pharmacodynamics should be considered to avoid sub therapeutic under dosage. High peak concentrations are the target for antibiotics with a concentration-dependent action (gentamicin, amikacin, levofloxacin, ciprofloxicin, daptomycin, linezolid, colistin and most...

Nerve injury: Classification, clinical assessment, investigation, and management

Timothy E. Hems
Seddon’s classification of nerve injuries into three categories, neurapraxia, axonotmesis, and neurotmesis provides a basis for assessment, prognosis, and management. The clinical history and examination are paramount in assessing the extent and severity of nerve injury. Investigations, including neurophysiology testing and imaging with MRI or ultrasound, may give extra diagnostic information. Open nerve injuries require exploration and repair within a few days. Closed stretch or compression injuries may warrant early exploration or can be managed...

Rare cases of urogenital tuberculosis and atypical mycobacterial urogenital infection

Ekaterina Kulchavenya, Svetlana Dubrovina, Denis Kholtobin, Victor Khomyakov & Mete Çek
Tuberculosis is a multisystem disease with myriad presentations and manifestations; it can affect any organ or tissue, excluding only hair and nails. Doctors who are not familiar with extra-pulmonary tuberculosis may not include this disease in their differential diagnostic work-up. The share of urogenital tuberculosis among all extrapulmonary forms gets up to 47%, and it is more often revealed in developing countries.
