Usefulness of Pneumotest-latex for direct serotyping of Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates in clinical samples.

Hide Abstract
This study evaluated the usefulness of the Pneumotest-Latex assay for serotyping Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates directly in clinical samples. With an agreement of 88.1% with a PCR-based reference method, this test can be a useful tool for this study purpose, especially in clinical laboratories that do not have access to nucleic acid amplification technologies.

Neisseria meningitidis is a leading etiologic agent of severe invasive disease. The objective of the study was to characterise invasive meningococcal disease (IMD) epidemiology in Poland during the last decade, based on laboratory confirmed cases.

Hide Abstract
Streptococcus pneumoniae is the main etiologic agent of community-acquired invasive infections, especially in extreme age groups. Recently, the emergence of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCV) brought a possibility to reduce the number of pneumococcal infections. Their introduction requires a knowledge concerning epidemiology of infections, which in different part of the world differs and changes with time, and therefore must be under permanent surveillance.

Hide Abstract
The objectives of this study were to assess the incidence of invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) in Poland (2006-2009), where mass vaccination had not been implemented, and to determine the serotype distribution and antimicrobial susceptibility of Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates. The IPD incidence rates were highest among children under 2 years of age (3.39/100,000 in 2009) and children 2-5 years old (2.44/100,000). The most common serotypes were 14, 3, 1, 4, 19F, 23F, 6B, and 12F (61.7% of all isolates). In children aged less than 5 years, isolates of serotypes 14, 6B, and 19F were most prevalent (52.7% of the IPD cases). The PCV7, PCV10, and PCV13 covered 43.3%, 54.8%, and 68.8% of all IPD cases, and 68.7%, 76.3%, and 86.3% of cases involving children under 5 years of age. Penicillin resistance was found in 21.3% of the isolates responsible for meningitis and in 1.2% of isolates responsible for other invasive infections. Introduction of antipneumococcal conjugated vaccines into the national immunisation programme would likely lead to a significant reduction of IPD-associated morbidity among Polish children in particular, as well as in the population as a whole, especially in cases involving pneumococci with a decreased susceptibility to antibiotics.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
