Hide Abstract
From December 2006 to April 2009, we conducted an etiology study among Cambodian patients presenting with acute fever of unknown origin. Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi was detected in 0.9% (41/4985) blood cultures. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing showed decreased susceptibility to ampicillin (56% resistant; MIC(90), >256 microg/mL), chloramphenicol (56% resistant; MIC(90), >256 microg/mL), trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (56% resistant; MIC(90), >256 microg/mL), nalidixic acid (81% resistant; MIC(90), not defined), ciprofloxacin (0% resistant; MIC(90), 0.5 microg/mL), and ceftriaxone (0% resistant; MIC(90), 0.094 microg/mL). Multidrug resistance, defined as antimicrobial resistance to ampicillin, chloramphenicol, and trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, was found in 56% of the isolates, and 80% had reduced susceptibility to ciprofloxacin (defined as MIC > or =0.12 microg/mL).

Infectious etiologies of acute febrile illness among patients seeking health care in south-central Cambodia.
Am. J. Trop. Med. Hyg.
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The agents of human febrile illness can vary by region and country suggesting that diagnosis, treatment, and control programs need to be based on a methodical evaluation of area-specific etiologies. From December 2006 to December 2009, 9,997 individuals presenting with acute febrile illness at nine health care clinics in south-central Cambodia were enrolled in a study to elucidate the etiologies. Upon enrollment, respiratory specimens, whole blood, and serum were collected. Testing was performed for viral, bacterial, and parasitic pathogens. Etiologies were identified in 38.0% of patients. Influenza was the most frequent pathogen, followed by dengue, malaria, and bacterial pathogens isolated from blood culture. In addition, 3.5% of enrolled patients were infected with more than one pathogen. Our data provide the first systematic assessment of the etiologies of acute febrile illness in south-central Cambodia. Data from syndromic-based surveillance studies can help guide public health responses in developing nations.

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.
