  • Clostridium Difficile Screening for Colonization During an Outbreak Setting
    Clin. Infect. Dis. (IF 8.216) Pub Date : 2018-05-26
    Katherine Linsenmeyer, William O'Brien, Stephen M Brecher, Judith Strymish, Alexandra Rochman, Kamal Itani, Kalpana Gupta

    A rapidly deployed ward-based screen and isolate initiative for C. difficile carriers during an outbreak averted 5 of 10 expected HA-CDI cases without identified harms. ARIMA modeling predicted a number needed to screen of 197 and to isolate of 4.4. Targeted C. difficile screening can be utilized for outbreak mitigation.

  • Revaccination with Measles-mumps-rubella Vaccine and Infectious Disease Morbidity: A Danish Register-based Cohort Study
    Clin. Infect. Dis. (IF 8.216) Pub Date : 2018-05-26
    Signe Sørup, Aksel K G Jensen, Peter Aaby, Christine S Benn

    It has been hypothesized that revaccination with live vaccines could be associated with reductions in off-target morbidity and mortality. We examined if revaccination with the live measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine (MMR) is associated with a lower rate of off-target infections.

  • Increased Risk of Infectious Complications in Older Patients with Indolent Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Exposed to Bendamustine
    Clin. Infect. Dis. (IF 8.216) Pub Date : 2018-05-25
    Monica Fung, Eric Jacobsen, Arnold Freedman, Daniel Prestes, Dimitrios Farmakiotis, Xiangmei Gu, Paul L Nguyen, Sophia Koo

    Bendamustine is a potent chemotherapy agent increasingly used to treat indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma (iNHL). While effective, it causes significant T-cell lymphopenia, which may increase risk of infection. We examined infectious complications associated with bendamustine-containing regimens among older patients with iNHL.

    Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)–infected pregnant women increasingly receive antiretroviral therapy (ART) to prevent mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT). Studies suggest HIV-exposed uninfected (HEU) children face higher mortality than HIV-unexposed children, but most evidence relates to the pre-ART era, breastfeeding of limited duration, and considerable maternal mortality. Maternal ART and prolonged breastfeeding while on ART may improve survival, although this has not been reliably quantified.

  • A Systematic Review of Safety and Immunogenicity of Influenza Vaccination Strategies in Solid Organ Transplant Recipients
    Clin. Infect. Dis. (IF 8.216) Pub Date : 2017-12-14
    Pearlie P Chong, Lara Handler, David J Weber

    Immunogenicity from seasonal inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV) remains suboptimal in solid organ transplant recipients (SOTRs). We conducted a systematic review that compared the safety and immunogenicity of nonstandard influenza vaccination strategies with single-dose IIV in SOTRs. Booster doses and possibly high-dose (HD) influenza vaccination strategies seem to hold promise for improving vaccination immunogenicity in SOTRs. Administration of intradermal and MF59-adjuvanted trivalent IIV (IIV3) did not improve vaccine immunogenicity compared with single-dose intramuscular IIV. Alternative vaccine strategies were generally well tolerated; SOTRs who received HD, intradermal or adjuvanted IIV3 had a higher frequency of infection site reactions, while systemic adverse events were more frequent in SOTRs who received HD IIV3. Allograft rejection rates were similar in both groups. SOTRs should continue to receive standard-dose IIV annually in accordance with current recommendations, pending future studies to determine the optimal timing, frequency, and dosage of IIV using the booster-dose strategy.

    To the Editor—We thank Dr. Johnson for his questions raised regarding our definitions used for asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB), cystitis and pyelonephritis, and potential implications on interpretation of our data. Namely, he states we may have categorized some patients as ASB that in reality clinicians may be reluctant not to treat, thereby negating the significance of our findings. Specifically, (1) those with only 1 localizing symptom of cystitis and no pyuria on urinalysis (UA), and (2) those lacking ≥ 2 typical urinary symptoms in the absence of a UA. Additionally, he suggests our requirement of fever in addition to localizing symptoms for pyelonephritis...

    To the Editor—In their recent publication, Luca et al [1] used an ecological design to compare all-cause pneumonia hospitalizations and associated costs in Ontario before (1992–2001) and after infant pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) availability—initially as 7-valent PCV (PCV7) for private purchase (2001–2004), then as publicly funded programs of PCV7 (2005–2009), 10-valent PCV (2009–2010), and 13-valent PCV (2010–2014). The authors attribute large reductions in pneumonia hospitalizations to the direct and indirect effects of infant PCV—reaching a 45% reduction among infants and a comparable reduction of 40% in elderly adults.

  • Too Much Optimism in the HANDOC Score
    Clin. Infect. Dis. (IF 8.216) Pub Date : 2018-01-19
    Shungo Yamamoto, Sho Nishimura

    To the Editor—We read with interest the developmental study of the HANDOC score by Sunnerhagen et al [1], which stratified the risk of infective endocarditis (IE) in patients with non-beta-hemolytic streptococci (NBHS). The authors reported that the score had a sensitivity of 100% in both the derivation and validation cohorts. They stated that the performance of the score when applied to the whole cohort, including the unknown category, was similar to the performance of the score when applied only to IE and non-IE cases. They did not clearly describe in the article how they dealt with the unknown category, and we guess from the...

    To the Editor—We thank Drs Yamamoto and Ishimura for their interest in our work and for pointing out an important aspect of it. Many studies on risk stratification regarding infective endocarditis (IE) in bacteremia divide patients into IE-cases and non-IE cases, whereas we chose to acknowledge that excluding IE is difficult [1–3]. Refuting IE in a given patient demands careful investigations with trans-esophageal echocardiography (TEE) and computerized tomography as a minimum and these types of investigations had not been performed in the majority of patients in our retrospective cohorts. Therefore, we created the “unknown group,” which consists of patients who did neither meet the...

  • The Argument Against Testing for INSTI Resistance in Treatment Naive Patients
    Clin. Infect. Dis. (IF 8.216) Pub Date : 2018-01-08
    Peter J Veldkamp, John W Mellors, Elias K Halvas

    To the Editor—Koullias et al [1] argue against testing for integrase strand transfer inhibitor (INSTI) resistance in newly diagnosed patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prior to initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART). The authors’ position is based on the low prevalence of primary INSTI resistance and the preserved efficacy of dolutegravir despite certain resistance mutations in integrase selected by other INSTI [2]. One point omitted from their position is the possibility of false positive test results. Here we describe a recently encountered instance of a false positive INSTI resistance genotype.

    Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is currently posing a global health risk of epidemic proportions. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at least 2 million persons in the United States are infected by antimicrobial-resistant bacteria, resulting in 23000 deaths yearly, with an estimated 700000 deaths worldwide. In the face of this threat and the lack of new antibiotics, national and international initiatives have been undertaken to develop antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) strategies.

  • 21st Century Cures Act and Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing: Clinical Implications in the Era of Multidrug Resistance
    Clin. Infect. Dis. (IF 8.216) Pub Date : 2018-05-23
    Romney M Humphries, Janet Hindler, Mary Jane Ferraro, Amy Mathers

    Clinical laboratories act at the frontline of identification of infections caused by multidrug resistant organisms, and yet the tools they apply are often woefully out of date. Incomplete adoption of current testing standards, updated breakpoints and tests for new drugs across laboratories has been exacerbated by lack of co-ordination between standard development organizations (SDOs), pharmaceutical companies, susceptibility test manufacturers and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The 21st Century Cures Act includes provisions to enable alignment between these groups by: 1) allowing recognition of breakpoints set by qualified SDOs; 2) publicly posting recognized breakpoints; and 3) reviewing breakpoints for necessary updates, every six months. Combined, these provisions will ensure more rapid recognition of current breakpoints, improving detection and management of resistant infections. Although several limitations remain, this will ultimately allow susceptibility test manufacturers to more readily update to current breakpoints.

    Although fatal once symptomatic, rabies is preventable by administration of pre- and post-exposure vaccines. International guidelines suggest life-long protection by a pre-exposure vaccination scheme followed by timely post-exposure vaccines. Rapidity and magnitude of the antibody recall response after booster inoculation are essential, as many people have been previously immunized a long time ago. The objective of this study was therefore to systematically review the evidence on the boostability of rabies immunization to date. We included 36 studies, of which nineteen studies were suitable for meta-analysis. Reduced antibody levels were found after intradermal primary schedules as compared to intramuscular schedules. However, responses after booster immunization were adequate for both routes. Although studies showed that antibody levels decline over time, adequate booster responses were still retained over long time intervals indicating that post-exposure treatment is effective without extra measures after long periods of time.

    To the Editor—The paper by Repetto et al. [1] plainly suggests that ivermectin is unable to cure chronic strongyloidiasis. Ivermectin is the drug of choice for this parasite, and its efficacy has been confirmed by all randomized clinical trials (RCT) conducted so far (resumed in Table 1 in the same article). Moreover, 2 epidemiological studies conducted in endemic areas clearly showed that, where ivermectin was regularly used for onchcerciasis or bancroftian filariasis, the prevalence of strongyloidiasis declined dramatically and remained very low for years after mass administration was interrupted [2, 3]. Now, a small observational study that lost at follow-up 50...

    Periodic mass distribution of benzimidazole anthelminthic drugs is the key strategy to control soil-transmitted helminths (STH) globally. However, benzimidazoles have low efficacy against Trichuris trichiura, and there are concerns about benzimidazole resistance potentially emerging in humans. Therefore, identifying alternative drug regimens is a pressing priority. We present a systematic review and network meta-analysis, comparing the efficacy of 21 different anthelminthic drug regimens, including standard, novel, and combination treatments.
