Human Anaplasmosis in Eastern France

2014-08-27 03:17:58 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Anaplasmosis is a tick-borne transmitted infection. Its clinical expression include fever, cytopenia and hepatitis.This infection was initially described in United States. In Europe, its epidemiology is not well known. Some isolated cases have been diagnosed in several country, were the tick Ixodes ricinus is known to transmitted another infection :the Lyme borreliosis.The purpose of our study is to look systematically for Anaplasmosis, in patient living in Eastern France, and presenting with compatible clinical symptoms using a new diagnosis tool : PCR in blood samples. So we will have new data about epidemiology in our country and the clinical symptoms that are associated with Anaplasmosis.

Atrial Fibrillation and Characterization of Blood Platelet

Arterial thromboembolism constitutes a major risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) requiring antithrombotic therapy. Platelets and microparticles (MPs) are important for hemostasis and thrombos...

Redox State in the Course of Chronic Renal Insufficiency and Hemodialysis: Implications in Morbimortality

The influence of hemodialysis on oxidative stress, endothelial activation, inflammation and on the redox state of lymphocytes should be clarified as well as the putative relationships betw...

Analysis of Circulating Tumor Markers in the Blood (ALCINA)

Exploratory study on blood-borne biological markers and their correlation with clinical and pathological characteristics.

Blood Sampling Through Peripheral Venous Catheter in Infants

We hypothesize that peripheral venous catheter used for fluid administration can replace venipuncture blood sampling for selected basic analytes and thus reduce pain in infants under 2 yea...

Evaluation of Intestinal Secretion of Antibodies and Auto-antibodies Associated With Crohn's Disease

We propose to study the intestinal secretion of ASCA by evaluating them in biopsy culture supernatants from a cohort of patients suffering from CD (n=80) and a cohort of control patients (...

The subtyping of primary aldosteronism by adrenal vein sampling: sequential blood sampling causes factitious lateralization.

The pulsatile secretion of adrenocortical hormones and a stress reaction occurring when starting adrenal vein sampling (AVS) can affect the selectivity and also the assessment of lateralization when s...

Repeated Blood Collection from Tail Vein of Non-Anesthetized Rats with a Vacuum Blood Collection System.

Blood can be collected from rats in a number of sampling locations. For instance, the tail vein is a superior location for blood sampling. However, the tail vein is thin so that it is sometimes hard t...

Survivability of Existing Peripheral Intravenous Access Following Blood Sampling in a Pediatric Population.

Although pediatric patients report venipuncture as their most feared experience during hospitalization, blood sampling from peripheral intravenous accesses (PIVs) is not standard of care. Blood sampli...

Screening for HIV, hepatitis B and syphilis on dried blood spots: A promising method to better reach hidden high-risk populations with self-collected sampling.

Many people at high risk for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), e.g., men who have sex with men (MSM), are not optimally reached by current sexual health care systems with testing. To facilitate ...

A hybrid protein containing MSP1a repeats and Omp7, Omp8 and Omp9 epitopes protect immunized BALB/c mice against anaplasmosis.

Anaplasma marginale (A. marginale) has a remarkable impact on livestock production, and an effective vaccine is not currently available due to the inexistence of a small animal model. Recently, BALB/c...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.

A sampling methodology using small sample sizes when conducting surveys in small geographical or population-based areas or lots.

A method for diagnosis of fetal diseases by sampling the cells of the placental chorionic villi for DNA analysis, presence of bacteria, concentration of metabolites, etc. The advantage over amniocentesis is that the procedure can be carried out in the first trimester.

A disease of cattle caused by parasitization of the red blood cells by bacteria of the genus ANAPLASMA.

A species of gram-negative bacteria causing mild ANAPLASMOSIS in CATTLE. It also can infect SHEEP and GOATS. It is transmitted by TICKS.
