Community-onset invasive methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections following hospital discharge. - American journal of infection control
The majority of invasive methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections in the United States are community-onset and occur in persons with recent health care exposure.We performed a matched case-control study to identify risk factors for invasive MRSA infection among recently discharged patients. Cases had MRSA cultured from a normally sterile body site within 100 days following hospital discharge. Controls were matched on hospital, week of admission, and age.Among 77 cases, the most common types of invasive MRSA infection were bloodstream infection and osteomyelitis. Independent risk factors were a history of a MRSA-positive clinical culture from a superficial body site in the 12 months preceding the invasive infection (matched odds ratio [mOR], 23; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 3.7-142), hemodialysis (mOR, 21; 95% CI: 1.7-257), prior hospitalization length of stay >5 days (mOR, 4.5; 95% CI: 1.6-12), and male sex (mOR, 2.9; 95% CI: 1.1-7.9).Risk factors for postdischarge invasive MRSA infections can be identified prior to discharge and remain with the patient after the hospitalization ends. Measures to prevent community-onset invasive MRSA infections might start in the hospital but should also be evaluated in postdischarge settings.Published by Mosby, Inc.
Exploring the mycobacteriophage metaproteome: phage genomics as an educational platform. - PLoS genetics
Bacteriophages are the most abundant forms of life in the biosphere and carry genomes characterized by high genetic diversity and mosaic architectures. The complete sequences of 30 mycobacteriophage genomes show them collectively to encode 101 tRNAs, three tmRNAs, and 3,357 proteins belonging to 1,536 "phamilies" of related sequences, and a statistical analysis predicts that these represent approximately 50% of the total number of phamilies in the mycobacteriophage population. These phamilies contain 2.19 proteins on average; more than half (774) of them contain just a single protein sequence. Only six phamilies have representatives in more than half of the 30 genomes, and only three-encoding tape-measure proteins, lysins, and minor tail proteins-are present in all 30 phages, although these phamilies are themselves highly modular, such that no single amino acid sequence element is present in all 30 mycobacteriophage genomes. Of the 1,536 phamilies, only 230 (15%) have amino acid sequence similarity to previously reported proteins, reflecting the enormous genetic diversity of the entire phage population. The abundance and diversity of phages, the simplicity of phage isolation, and the relatively small size of phage genomes support bacteriophage isolation and comparative genomic analysis as a highly suitable platform for discovery-based education.
