Extraintestinal Escherichia coli (ExPEC), a heterogeneous group of pathogens, encompasses avian, neonatal meningitis, and uropathogenic E. coli strains. While several virulence factors are associated with ExPEC, there is no core set of virulence factors that can be used to definitively differentiate these pathotypes. Here we describe a multiplex of four virulence factor-encoding genes, yfcV, vat,fyuA, and chuA, highly associated with uropathogenic E. coli strains that can distinguish three groups of E. coli: diarrheagenic and animal-associated E. colistrains, human commensal and avian pathogenic E. coli strains, and uropathogenic and neonatal meningitis E. coli strains. Furthermore, human intestinal isolates that encode ...

Rethinking Hiv-Exposure Crimes, Margo Kaplan
Indiana Law Journal
This Article challenges the current legislative and scholarly approaches to HIV-exposure crimes and proposes an alternative framework to address their flaws. Twenty-four states criminalize consensual sexual activities of people with HIV. Current statutes and the scholarship that supports them focus on HIV-positive status, sexual activity, and knowledge of HIV-positive status as proxies for risk, mental state, and consent to risk. As a result, they are dramatically over- and underinclusive and stigmatize individuals living with HIV. Criminalization should be limited to circumstances in which a defendant exposed her partner to a substantial degree of unassumed risk and did so with a ...

A Case Of A Male With Fever And Fatigue, Steve Ting
The Medicine Forum
This is a case of a 78 year old Caucasian gentleman who presented to the hospital in the early summer with complaints of high fevers and progressive fatigue. The patient lives near Philadelphia and enjoys doing yard work. He reported finding a tick attached to the skin near his groin approximately 3 weeks prior to admission. The tick was removed; however the patient was unsure of the duration of the tick attachment. He also denied developing any significant rash in that area. He had no recent sick contacts and no recent history of travel. He began developing fever spikes up ...

Majority of new HIV-1 infections world-wide occur via the genital tract. Therefore, achieving effective mucosal immunity will be a critical component of vaccine strategies in the prevention and control of infection during early stages of transmission itself. Rigorous efforts have been made to identify conserved epitopes and develop rational design of immunogens, in order to elicit broadly-reactive protective Abs against HIV. Newly emerging data have highlighted the significance of Ab effector functions other than classical IgG-mediated neutralization in HIV infection. In the studies contributing towards this thesis, an optimized vaccine model is described that successfully elicits potent systemic and mucosal ...
