Human Anaplasmosis in Eastern France

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


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.

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 dried blood spot sampling for pharmacokinetic research and therapeutic drug monitoring of anti-tuberculosis drugs in children.

Dried blood spot sampling (DBS) for pharmacokinetic (PK) studies and Therapeutic Drug Monitoring has unique advantages over venous sampling. We aimed to evaluate a DBS method for first-line anti-TB dr...

herapeutic drug monitoring of tacrolimus and mycophenolic acid in outpatient renal transplant recipients using a volumetric dried blood spot sampling device.

Tacrolimus and mycophenolic acid dosing after renal transplantation is individualized through therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM). Home-based dried blood spot (DBS) sampling has potential to replace con...

Is blood a reliable indicator of trace metal concentrations in organs of small mammals?

In wildlife ecotoxicology, the rationale for using blood rather than other body fluids or tissues is that sampling blood is a minimally invasive technique without animal mortality, providing both ethi...

Epidemiology and risk factors associated with Anaplasma marginale infection of cattle in Peninsular Malaysia.

Bovine anaplasmosis is a major concern to cattle farming in most parts of the world. Anaplasmosis negatively impacts the profitability of cattle farming by reducing the production, reproduction, and d...

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.
