Le infezioni batteriche resistenti agli antibiotici

Ma si possono trattare con un virus.

A thread

#antibioticresistance #antibiotics #bacteria #infectiousdiseases

1/n
Ogni anno in Italia muoiono più di 11'000 persone per infezioni resistenti agli antibiotici. E il problema non riguarda soltanto soggetti anziani, debilitati o ospedalizzati.

2/n
Se il fenomeno dell'antibiotico resistenza non viene arginato ci ritroveremo con moltissimi batteri letali.

Gli antibiotici che fino ad oggi ci hanno aiutato a gestire questa battaglia sono definiti la più grande scoperta della medicina moderna.

#FeversInChildren

Since schools opened he’s constantly unwell
Is it normal for kids to get fevers every week?
There must be something you can give to boost her immunity?
He always has this cold,the cough hasn’t left him

We’re swimming high tides of cough, cold and fevers

Paediatricians across the country are running busiest of OPDs, juggling bed availability in wards and PICUs and even falling sick themselves more than ever before
Parents are at their wits end

Lo que usted debe saber sobre la #tuberculosis (TB).

La TB es una enfermedad infecciosa causada fundamentalmente por la bacteria #Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

La enfermedad suele afectar principalmente a los #pulmones 🫁 pero puede comprometer cualquier órgano del cuerpo.

🧵 Image
¿Como se transmite?

De persona a persona por vía aérea.

"Cuando una persona con #tuberculosis expulsa la #bacteria al #toser, estornudar, hablar, entonces los que se encuentren cerca pueden inhalarla e infectarse"

Generalmente ocurre en contactos cercanos y prolongados. Image
¿Quiénes tienen más riesgos?

❗️Las personas que viven con #VIH (sin TARV) tienen 18 veces más probabilidades de desarrollar TB activa.
❗️La personas desnutridas.
❗️El trastorno por consumo de alcohol y el tabaquismo.
❗️Otros estados de inmunosupresión.

1/20 #LongThread/continuation but worth it! Again sorry for type-errors (I am glad that I survived it) Excerpt/Quote about Viral persistence & consequences to reactivation other pathogens! @microbeminded2 ♥️💐💙

“To me it is, yes (viral persistence as simplest explanation)…
2. because then it can start to explain so many of the other things that are measured. So we could explain some of the #autoantibody production by persistence of the virus, we can certainly explain how other pathogens may themselves be reactivated.
3. That’s definitely I think a trend that haven’t described as much … but all of us are seated with other organisms. Other pathogens that are #herpes viruses, Epstein-Barr, CytomegaloVirus but also sometimes for example #toxoplasma is a parasite that one third of the world …

This is the most straightforward explanation for chronic symptoms in at least a subset of #LongCovid patients. Partly b/c if the #virus is still present its activity can directly contribute to other phenomena also being documented in LongCovid
2/ Persistence of #SARS-CoV-2 in tissue could lead to shedding of spike protein into blood, which can catalyze the ongoing formation of microclots and hyperactivated platelets
3/ Persistence of SARS-CoV-2 can lead to ongoing downregulation of interferon and/or T cell signaling by the virus, creating an optimal atmosphere for activation of EBV or other #pathogens normally controlled by such immunity

Attending the school of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences research retreat #PAMRR2021 @Griffith_Uni

Thankfully it's made accessible via Teams for those of us unable to physically attend.

Might share some little insights from the presentations
Welcomed by the enthusiastic, encouraging, and humble @JennyAKEkberg and reminded to connect our research and funding with community and industry and engage in research cross-pollination. /1

⭐️ It is with immense pleasure that we share with you the published #Sitophilus oryzae #genome paper in @BMCBiology doi.org/10.1186/s12915… 1/n
S. oryzae is a #coleopteran capable of destroying entire cereal crops posing a significant threat to the food security of many developing countries. The female #weevil lays ~300 eggs during its lifetime. They develop within the cereal grain until a ~3 day old adult emerges 2/n Image
Cereal grains are nutritionally poor, and S. oryzae partnered with a gram- bacterium that complements its diet. The bacteria are present within specialized insect cells, called #bacteriocytes. Check here for our latest research on this #symbiosis doi.org/10.1073/pnas.2…. 3/n

In our recent review on #LongCovid/PASC we bring up the possibility that dysbiosis or imbalance of host #microbiome communities (in ecosytems such as the gut, lungs, or oral cavity) might contribute to at least some LongCovid symptoms: frontiersin.org/articles/10.33…
2/ More specifically immune dysregulation driven by #SARS-CoV-2 might allow pathobionts (bacteria capable of both commensal + virulent acitivty) in the gut, mouth, or other body sites to collectively shift towards a state of imbalance + pro-inflammatory gene/metabolite expression
3/ Conversely, b/c composition + activity of the microbiome can influence host susceptibility and ongoing control of #viral pathogens, exisiting microbiome dysbiosis in a range of body sites may serve as a form of predisposition to LongCovid

If you’re considering studying blockage of GPCRs in #LongCovid or related conditions, please start w/ the understanding that humans are not sterile...and that common human organisms/pathogens express proteins/metabolites that block/dysregulate GPCR signaling
2/ Herpesvirus re-activation is common in #COVID-19, and may impact some LongCovid cases. The herpesviruses alone (EBV, CMV etc) create a wide range of proteins that block GPCR signaling: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P… Indeed, viral hijacking of GPCRs is a big topic in cancer research
3/ Beyond that, many commensal #bacteria derived from the human #microbiome appear capable of expressing metabolites that are GPCR mimics, that directly impact GPCR signaling. That means even changing microbiome dynamics could impact GPCR-related issues: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…

And so Day 3 of my story of God at work in my life as part of #OfGodAndMe #ThisNunsStory series. Yesterday mention of the book, The Silver Sword seems to have struck a chord with many so perhaps its not out of place to mention that today 7th April is #Worldhealthday 1/20
Ian Serraillier ended his talks by showing this photo with the words, ‘No child should ever again have that expression on his face’. My hope this the UK as host of the upcoming #G7 summit will prioritise Universal health care for all. #UCH 2/20

1/ A: Celebrate the mild #flu season & take what we have learned this year to inform future behavior. Harmful germs are not going away. 🦠 Illness from bacteria & viruses that make us sick do not “strengthen” the #immune system & contribute to significant complications & death. Image
2/ The lack of infectious illnesses will not #weaken your #immunesystem. Public health measures to combat #COVID19 including social distancing, masks, & extra hand washing greatly reduced the incidence of some bad microbes that cause common infectious illnesses such as the flu.
3/ More than 15,000 US deaths attributed to the #flu were averted this year. Other common viruses, like rhinoviruses, did not decrease as consistently. #Bacteria & #viruses that cause illness will continue to exist. go.nature.com/2OxkiUv

Today is the start of #SHW2020! Each day this week, I'll be tweeting about Britain's long, tempestuous and ever-so-slightly bonkers love–hate relationship with its #sexualhealth.

Darlings, brace yourselves. 💋 #SHW20 Image
We begin with the Victorians, who, contrary to popular belief, were obsessed with sex. In the C19, the only known #STIs were syphilis and gonorrhoea. Diagnosis depended on observable symptoms (no blood tests/smears). Effective treatments were non-existent. Image: @ExploreWellcome Image
In 1864 the British government introduced the Contagious Diseases Acts, intended to protect the armed forces through 'regulation' of 'common prostitutes'. The Acts gave police almost-unlimited discretionary powers to arrest any woman they thought might be soliciting. Image: HCPP Image
