@jenbrea Hey! Yes several people spoke on that topic at the recent #ILADs conference I was at 👉 and remember this case history which found that a woman treated w/ antibiotics to target persistent #Bartonella had substantial improvement in EDS symptoms: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
@jenbrea 2/2 As for #mast cell activation in response to persistent #pathogens...there is extensive literature on how a range of bacterial, viral and fungal pathogens can drive #MCAS-like symptoms 👉 for example: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
@jenbrea 3/3 There is even a receptor common in #connective tissue who’s activity controls mast cell activation in response to bacterial signaling molecules that drive #biofilm formation: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/31278…

#Campaign in tweets - @Guardicore Labs in a new tradition; we find the attacks, you get to know them and learn the attackers' tricks and techniques. This time, let's get familiarized with "Lemon_Duck", a #cryptomining campaign involving a sophisticated #propagation tool. 🍋🦆
Before we start: all scripts, binaries and IOCs are available on our github repository. In addition, malicious IPs, attack servers and domains appear on @Guadicore Cyber Threat Intelligence portal. You're welcome to take a look :)

Lemon_Duck starts by breaching machines over the #MSSQL service or the #SMB protocol. We'll focus on the MS-SQL flow. Once inside the machine, the attacker enables #xp_cmdshell to run shell commands. It will take only a single command line to trigger the rest of the attack.

@RCPEdin Day 1 of #RCPEAGIM2019 - 5 days of all things General Medical. Today is all about #infection and we have some great speakers covering key clinical topics - details here: events.rcpe.ac.uk/rcpe-course-ac…
@RCPEdin #RCPEAGIM2019 Session 1 is about diagnosing infection: Clinical perspective (Busi Mooka) ➡️ Modern microbiology diagnostics (Kate Templeton) ➡️ Radiological diagnosis (Peter Garmany) With introduction from @PresidentRCPE @ProfDerekBell
Dr Busi Mooka reminding us of the great diagnostician William Osler - “Listen to your patient, he is telling you the diagnosis” - 100% true for dx infection #rcpeAGIM19 @RCPEdin @SAPGAbx @AntibioticScot

No need for skepticism of #microbiome + virome involvement in #ME/CFS 👉 But we must factor in the activity of organisms (bacteria, viruses, phages, fungi etc) that often persist + interact outside the gut☝️And many such organisms are not “good” but are pathogens/#pathobionts
In fact, Komaroff asked if anyone has a model for #ME/CFS that links together many findings recently presented at #MECFSatNIH19 👉 Well, that’s what my recent paper on ME/CFS does!...w/ #microbiome + virome activity central to how separate findings connect:frontiersin.org/articles/10.33…
That is b/c 👉 Humans are now understood to be #holobionts: our activity is controlled by the human genome, our microbial/#viral genomes and their respective proteins + metabolites working in tandem (together!): nph.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.11…

UP NEXT: 7th-seeded TIGER QUOLL versus 2nd-seed NIMRAVID #2019MMM (a collaborative narration w/ @PKurnath )
The largest carnivore on Australia's mainland today (15lbs/7kg/32 stoats), the Tiger quoll hunts like cats, only moving when the prey's head is down (Jones et al., 2001) #StoatsAsMeasurement #SneakyNotACat #2019MMM
Which is how the Tiger quoll got through round 1, by making a meal out of the Cat-bird #YumYum #2019MMM
