⛔️ Alerta de #Fiebre #Tifoidea

Me han llegado múltiples mensajes de mis pacientes con cadenas de #Whatsapp que alertan sobre varios casos en #Caracas.

Así que vamos a explicar un poco. Mi intención no es alarmar, por el contrario, quiero tranquilizar y educar en prevención.
La FT es causada por la bacteria #Salmonella typhi. Se transmite por la ingesta de alimentos y el agua contaminados o el contacto estrecho con un infectado. Sus signos y síntomas son:

⚠️ Fiebre
⚠️ Cefalea
⚠️ Dolor estomacal
⚠️ #Estreñimiento o #diarrea
⚠️ Manchas rosadas en piel
La mayoría de las personas que tienen fiebre tifoidea se sienten mejor unos días después de comenzar el #tratamiento con #antibióticos.

Un 15% de los casos se pueden complicar con #Pancreatitis, #Colcistitis, #hepatitis, #neumonía entre otros.

#NO se automedique.

Today is #NationalChickenWingDay, one of many US holidays celebrating animal-based products.

We honor this day by exploring the health, environmental, and ethical impacts of #poultry farming and celebrating plant-based chicken for providing an animal-free alternative. 1/12 Image
Despite their proven ability to experience suffering, #chickens account for 95% of land animals farmed for food globally.

@JenMishler explores research demonstrating chickens' emotional & cognitive abilities—ranging from feeling #empathy to dreaming. 2/12…
Chicken breeds that grow rapidly often suffer from cardiovascular problems, muscle deformities, #lameness, and external sores.

Linda Tyler reports on a @uofg study showing that genetic manipulation comes at a great physical cost to #chickens. 3/12…

This week, investigators found that German #meat companies sold sausages made from bones.

The #livestock sector is highly secretive, hiding its practices from the public eye. As a result, many people don't know what animal products are made of, including these 8 examples.👇1/11
Many #ChickenNuggets contain very little actual meat.

Instead, they mostly consist of fat and other body parts, including #chicken nerves, bone, skin, and connective tissue. @iltaylorwriter reports. 2/11…
Few people know that #horse blood can be involved in the production of pork and beef.

Farmers across Europe use a hormone derived from pregnant mares to increase reproduction in pigs, #cows & other farmed animals. @KevanySophie reports via @guardian. 3/11…

June 3 is #NationalEggDay. We honor today by taking a close look at the environmental, ethical, and health impacts of poultry farming and highlighting ways to help hens raised for their #eggs. 1/13 Image
Studies show that #chickens are socially complex beings capable of self-control and empathy.

Despite their proven sentience, the #poultry industry raises billions of chickens for their meat and eggs every year. @JenMishler reports. 2/13…
Before the 1920s, #chickens were thought of as smart and industrious.

When chickens became the first factory-farmed animal in the world, #chicken representation in the media evolved to justify their treatment within farms. @LillieGardner reports. 3/13…

1/ Strict new rules on the use of #antibiotics and other #antimicrobials in pigs, chickens and other #farm animals come into force today across the #EU. What do the changes mean - and are they good for animals and consumers? A thread//
2/ In 2019 alone 5m deaths were connected to #AntimicrobialResistance (#AMR), according to a recent @TheLancet report. The deadly, drug-resistant infections behind these deaths come about because of the over- and misuse of antimicrobials, which makes bacteria resistant to them
3/ When drug-resistant bugs develop in animals because of antibiotic overuse they can easily spread to humans - often through #food. For example, rates of drug-resistant #salmonella have risen - & infections mainly come from #chicken & other #poultry.…

#Haemolysis data indicates that #disruption of host cell #membranes by rotating #flagella is physically possible, despite what previously published measurements with firing gold nanobeads at tissue cultures tells us.

[Pls read the paper for the more complex story with E.coli]
But what if #flagella did penetrate host cell #membranes? What might that mean?
Well, in vitro at least, #Ecoli and #Salmonella #flagella can enhance #actin #polymerization rates. Interactions with #Cofilin-1 (CFL) had an additive effect... Actin polymerisation rates with flagella from E. coli (H6, H

Jo Elvidge and I were looking at the role of #flagella in early infection of #Salmonella and #Ecoli in relevant animal tissue models (🐖🐄)

We spotted what looked like very intimate adherence... E.coli O157:H7 on Bovine terminal rectal cellsSalmonella Typhimurium on porcine epithelial cells
It was a toughie to quantify back then with the tools we had, but every time we looked, we saw it 🤓

See our new @plospathogens paper with the Hinton Lab @jay_salsa on the role of the MacAB-TolC efflux pump during infection by invasive #Salmonella isolates from Africa.…
Whole genome analysis of all sequenced African #iNTS isolates by @yan_salsa @NWenner and @implosian identified several variants of MacAB associated with each lineage.
We showed these MacAB variants change resistance to the antimicrobial peptide C18G and alter #Salmonella replication in macrophages.
