The aim of our study was to evaluate the epidemiology, clinical features and risk factors for shock and mortality from Escherichia coli bacteremia among children and adolescents with hematological disorders.

To study the risk factors of prognosis in patients with septic shock, and to provide a reliable evidence to evaluate severity.
Clot in transit (CIT) represents a rare and life-threatening manifestation of venous thromboembolism of which we have limited understanding. This study describes the risk factors, clinical characteris...
Bloodstream infections (BSIs) remain life-threatening complications in the clinical course of patients with haematological malignancies (HM) and Escherichia coli represent one of the most frequent cau...
Eczema herpeticum (EH) is a disseminated viral infection of eczematous skin disease with the herpes simplex virus. Knowledge on clinical characteristics, risk factors and recurrent disease is limited....
As terlipressin becomes more widely used in clinical practice, more papers had reported the correlation between hyponatremia and terlipressin treatment. This study was performed to evaluate the clinic...
The determinants associated with severe outcome and death from Escherichia coli bloodstream infections (BSI) remain poorly understood. The epidemiology of E. coli BSI has recently changed ...
The purpose of this study is to review patients with E. coli infections at UPMC from September 1, 2008 to August 31, 2010 to determine if these infections have arisen in the community rath...
The sequence type 131 (ST131) is a predominant lineage among extraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli. It plays a major role in the worldwide dissemination of E. coli that produce exten...
Adults older than 18 years old, admitted to the ICU with a Severe Septic Shock, requiring Norepinephrine at more than 0.25mcg/kg/min, who have signed informed consent form, will be consecu...
In the US and Europe, bacteremia are ranked the 7th leading cause of death from all causes. E. coli is one of the main microorganism involved, responsible for 30% to 45% of bacteremia. In ...
Heat and cold stress-inducible, transcription factors that bind to inverted 5'-NGAAN-3' pentamer DNA sequences and are regulated by poly(ADP) ribosylation. They play essential roles as transcriptional activators of the HEAT-SHOCK RESPONSE by inducing expression of large classes of MOLECULAR CHAPERONES and heat-shock proteins. They also function in DNA REPAIR; transcriptional reactivation of latent HIV-1; and pre-mRNA processing and nuclear export of HSP70 HEAT-SHOCK PROTEINS during heat stress.
Tumors or cancer of the COLON or the RECTUM or both. Risk factors for colorectal cancer include chronic ULCERATIVE COLITIS; FAMILIAL POLYPOSIS COLI; exposure to ASBESTOS; and irradiation of the CERVIX UTERI.
The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
Strains of Escherichia coli that preferentially grow and persist within the urinary tract. They exhibit certain virulence factors and strategies that cause urinary tract infections.
Factors that can cause or prevent the outcome of interest, are not intermediate variables, and are not associated with the factor(s) under investigation. They give rise to situations in which the effects of two processes are not separated, or the contribution of causal factors cannot be separated, or the measure of the effect of exposure or risk is distorted because of its association with other factors influencing the outcome of the study.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
