Aziz, "Draft Genome Sequences of Four Metallo-Beta-Lactamase-Producing Multidrug-Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae Clinical Isolates, Including Two Colistin-Resistant Strains, from Cairo, Egypt", Microbiology Resource Announcements, vol. 8, no. 7: American Society for Microbiology Journals, 2019. AbstractWebsite

The emergence and spread of metallo-beta-lactamase-producing multidrug-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae are a serious public health threat. Here, we report the draft genome sequences of four K. pneumoniae strains isolated from Cairo, Egypt, including two panresistant colistin-resistant strains. Genome annotation indicated a number of virulence and resistance genes agreeing with observed phenotypes.

Attia, M. M., M. Abdelsalam, M. Y. Elgendy, and A. H. Sherif, Dactylogyrus extensus and Pseudomonas fluorescens dual infection in farmed common carp (Cyprinus carpio), , vol. 173, pp. 105867, 2022. AbstractWebsite

Dactylogyrus extensus and Pseudomonas fluorescens are serious pathogens in Cyprinus carpio aquaculture causing severe impacts and substantial economic losses. During the early spring of 2021, abnormal mortalities were reported among farmed C. carpio. Moribund fish showed anorexia, respiratory distress, dermal ulcers, and septicemia. The water analysis revealed low dissolved oxygen (3.4 mg/L), and high un-ionized ammonia levels (0.65 mg/L). Seventy moribund C. carpio specimens were collected and subjected to parasitological and bacteriological examinations. The monogenetic trematode D. extensus was discovered in wet mounts from the gills of all the examined fish samples (100%). The identity of recovered parasites was confirmed by sequencing and alignment of the 28S rDNA gene. P. fluorescens was concurrently identified in the infested fish samples (58.5%) based on phenotypic characteristics using the API20 E. The identity of bacterial isolates was confirmed further by sequencing and alignment of 16S rRNA gene. The IL-1β and MHCII were upregulated in infested fish in tandem with the severity of infections. P. fluorescens isolates displayed high resistance to most of the tested antibiotics. The study is one of the earlier reports on D. extensus and P. fluorescens co-infections in farmed C. carpio and highlights the need of effective control programs to protect fish health and minimize losses.

Attia, A. A. E. M., and N. B. Elsharkawy, "Physiological Adaptation among Preterm Infants and Associated Maternal Factors", IOSR Journal of Nursing and Health Science (IOSR-JNHS), vol. 6, issue 1, pp. 31-38, 2017. AbstractWebsite

Although advances in neonatology led to considerable decreases in preterm infants’ mortality and
morbidity, the problem is still of major importance. Aim: The aim of this study was to describe the physiological
adaptation among preterm infants and explore the associated maternal risk factors. Method: The study was
carried out using a prospective descriptive design with follow-up of preterm infants in the Neonatal Intensive
Care Unit (NICU) at the Maternity and Children Hospital at Hail, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It involved a
purposive sample of 60 parturient women in preterm labor and their preterm infants. The data collection tools
were a structured interview questionnaire sheet for maternal data and physiological assessment form for
preterm infant data. Mothers’ age ranged between 18 and 41 years, and their gestational age ranged from 32 to
36 weeks. Results: The results showed statistically significant improvements in preterm infants’ blood pressure,
anthropometric measurements, skin, and stool characteristics. By day 6, 51.7% of preterm infants had their
length and 50.0% had their body weight in the normal range for their ages. From day 1 to day 6, respiratory
distress syndrome declined from 70.0% to 21.7% (p<0.001). Similarly, the laboratory findings demonstrated
statistically significant improvements. The percentage of preterm infants with physiological adaptation
increased from 5.0% at day 1 to 66.7% at day 6 (p<0.001). The maternal characteristics associated with
physiological adaptation were history of previous abortions (p=0.02), and of stillbirth (p=0.04). As for the
current pregnancy, physiological adaptation was associated with multiple pregnancies (p=0.01), and
pregnancy-induced hypertension (p=0.049). In multivariate analysis, the independent predictors of
physiological adaptation were maternal history of previous abortion and multiple pregnancies. Conclusions:
In conclusion, approximately two-thirds of the preterm infants in the study setting had good physiological
adaptation by their sixth day of life. The twin pregnancy seems to favor such adaptation, whereas a maternal
history of abortion is a risk factor that may hinder it. Thus, infants delivered to mothers with a history of
abortion, especially if singleton needs more attention. The difference in adaptation between boys and girls needs
further study.

Abstract

We exploited the fact that leukemic cells utilize significantly higher levels of S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe) than normal lymphocytes and developed tools that selectively diminished their survival under physiologic conditions. Using RNA interference gene silencing technology, we modulated the kinetics of methionine adenosyltransferase-II (MAT-II), which catalyzes SAMe synthesis from ATP and l-Met. Specifically, we silenced the expression of the regulatory MAT-IIbeta subunit in Jurkat cells and accordingly shifted the K(m L-Met) of the enzyme 10-15-fold above the physiologic levels of l-Met, thereby reducing enzyme activity and SAMe pools, inducing excessive apoptosis and diminishing leukemic cell growth in vitro and in vivo. These effects were reversed at unphysiologically high l-Met (>50 microm), indicating that diminished leukemic cell growth at physiologic l-Met levels was a direct result of the increase in MAT-II K(m L-Met) due to MAT-IIbeta ablation and the consequent reduction in SAMe synthesis. In our NOD/Scid IL-2Rgamma(null) humanized mouse model of leukemia, control shRNA-transduced Jurkat cells exhibited heightened engraftment, whereas cells lacking MAT-IIbeta failed to engraft for up to 5 weeks post-transplant. These stark differences in malignant cell survival, effected by MAT-IIbeta ablation, suggest that it may be possible to use this approach to disadvantage leukemic cell survival in vivo with little to no harm to normal cells.

AbstractWebsite

Abstract Trichodiniasis is one of the most serious ectoparasitic diseases disturbing tilapia aquaculture worldwide, causing deleterious effects and significant economic losses. This study aimed to characterize two Trichodina species concomitantly infecting farmed Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus based on integrated morphological, molecular, and immunological approaches. One hundred and eighty of 250 examined Nile tilapia were found to be infected with trichodinids belonging to the family Trichodinidae, with an overall prevalence rate of 72%. The morphological characterization of trichodinids fixed on Giemsa-stained smears revealed that fish were concomitantly infected with Trichodina heterodentata and T. centrostrigeata. Subsequently, the phylogenetic analysis of the 18S rRNA gene of the two investigated trichodinids confirmed the detected species? identities. The gene expression levels of MHCII? and CD4 gens were increased during the trichodinid infection. Furthermore, potassium permanganate and hydrogen peroxide chemicals, which have well-known records for treating ectoparasites infections in farmed fish, were successfully verified to control trichodiniasis in a small-scale trial.
