Three inactivated enterovirus A71 (EV-A71) vaccines have been widely vaccinated among children in the targeted age group in mainland China since mid-2016. However, comprehensive virological surveillance of hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) over multiple years after the use of EV-A71 vaccines has rarely been conducted. Using long-term data extracted from the Public Health and Clinical Center of Chengdu, we described the clinical, aetiological, and epidemiological characteristics of HFMD inpatients after the use of EV-A71...

Epidemiology, evolution, and biological characteristics of H6 avian influenza viruses in China

Xiaohao Xu, Qi Chen, Min Tan, Jia Liu, Xiyan Li, Lei Yang, Yuelong Shu, Dayan Wang & Wenfei Zhu
H6 avian influenza virus (AIV) is one of the most prevalent AIV subtypes in birds globally. To investigate the current situation and characteristics of H6 AIVs circulating in China, we analysed the epidemiology, genetic evolution and pathogenic features of this subtype. During 2000-2021, H6 subtype AIVs spread widely through Southern China and presented high host diversity. On analysing 171 H6 viruses isolated during 2009-2021, dynamic reassortments were observed among H6 and other co-circulating AIV subtypes,...

Isolation of Diaphorobacter sp. LW2 capable of degrading Phenanthrene and its migration mediated by Pythium ultimum

Jialu Li, Mei Hong, Rui Tang, Tingchen Cui, Yadong Yang, Jing Lv, Na Liu & Yutao Lei
Phenanthrene, one of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, is stubborn and persistent which exists widely in petroleum contaminated soil. Filamentous fungi are good assistants to bacterial transport, by hyphae passing through soil pores and reaching further positions. An isolated bacterial strain, from the contaminated soil of coking plant, was identified as Diaphorobacter and named LW2, which could use phenanthrene as the only carbon source and energy for its growth. LW2 could degrade phenanthrene in a wide range...

Metformin attenuated sepsis-related liver injury by modulating gut microbiota

Huoyan Liang, Heng Song, Xiaojuan Zhang, Gaofei Song, Yuze Wang, Xianfei Ding, Xiaoguang Duan, Lifeng Li, Tongwen Sun & Quancheng Kan
Increased evidence shows that gut microbiota acts as the primary regulator of the liver; however, their role in sepsis-related liver injury (SLI) in the elderly is unclear. This study assessed whether metformin could attenuate SLI by modulating gut microbiota in septic aged rats. Cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) was used to induce SLI in aged rats. Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) was used to validate the roles of gut microbiota in these pathologies. The composition of...

Omicron infections profile and vaccination status among 1881 liver transplant recipients: a multi-center retrospective cohort

A wave of Omicron infections rapidly emerged in China in 2022, but large-scale data concerning the safety profile of vaccines and Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection features in liver transplant (LT) recipients have not been collected. Therefore, the aim of this study was to assess the protectiveness and safety profile of the inactivated vaccines in LT patients against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) Omicron variant infections. A multi-center retrospective study was conducted in...

Adverse Outcome Pathways and Linkages to Transcriptomic Effects Relevant to Ionizing Radiation Injury

Jihang Yu, Wangshu Tu, Andrea Payne, Chris Rudyk, Sarita Cuadros Sanchez, Saadia Khilji, Premkumari Kumarathasan, Sanjeena Subedi, Brittany Haley, Alicia Wong, Catalina Anghel, Yi Wang & Vinita Chauhan
In the past three decades, a large body of data on the effects of exposure to ionizing radiation and the ensuing changes in gene expression has been generated. These data have allowed for an understanding of molecular-level events and shown a level of consistency in response despite the vast formats and experimental procedures being used across institutions. However, clarity on how this information may inform strategies for health risk assessment needs to be explored. An...

Total RNA sequencing of Phlebotomus chinensis, a neglected vector in China, simultaneously revealed viral, bacterial, and eukaryotic microbes that are potentially pathogenic to humans

Jing Wang, Qin-yu Gou, Geng-yan Luo, Xin Hou, Guodong Liang & Mang Shi
Phlebotomus chinensis sandfly is a neglected insect vector in China which is well-known for carrying Leishmania. Recent studies have expanded its pathogen repertoire with two novel arthropod-borne phleboviruses capable of infecting human and animals. Despite these discoveries, our knowledge on the general pathogen diversity and overall microbiome composition of this vector species are still very limited. Here we carried out a meta-transcriptomics analysis which simultaneously revealed the actively replicating/transcribing RNA viruses, DNA viruses, bacteria and...

Impact of vaccination on kinetics of neutralizing antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 by Serum live neutralization test based on a prospective cohort

How much the vaccine contributes to the induction and development of neutralizing antibodies (NAbs) of breakthrough cases relative to those unvaccinated-infected cases is not fully understood. We conducted a prospective cohort study and collected serum samples from 576 individuals who were diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 Delta strain infection, including 245 breakthrough cases and 331 unvaccinated-infected cases. NAbs were analyzed by live virus microneutralization test and transformation of NAb titer. NAbs titers against SARS-CoV-2 ancestral and Delta...

Mapping active paddy rice area over monsoon Asia using time-series Sentinel – 2 images in Google Earth Engine; A case study over Lower Gangetic Plain

Arabinda Maiti, Prasenjit Acharya, Srikanta Sannigrahi, Qi Zhang, Somnath Bar, Suman Chakraborti, Bijoy K Gayen, Gunadhar Barik, Surajit Ghosh & Milap Punia
We proposed a modification of the existing approach for mapping active paddy rice fields in monsoon-dominated areas. In the existing PPPM approach, LSWI higher than EVI at the transplantation stage enables the identification of rice fields. However, it fails to recognize the fields submerged later due to monsoon floods. In the proposed approach (IPPPM), the submerged fields, at the maximum greenness time, were excluded for better estimation. Sentinel–2A/2B time-series images were used for the year...
