Zoonotic Antimicrobial Resistance as a Result of Iatrogenic Disease in Companion Animals - Case Study Reports

Elaine Meade, Mark Anthony Slattery and Mary Garvey

Article Type: March 15, 2019 | First Published: March 15, 2019

Iatrogenic disease represents an ongoing issue for veterinarians where animals manifest with secondary conditions as a result of medical treatment. Similarly, zoonotic disease and specifically resistant zoonotic pathogens represent an ongoing issue for public health safety. As an increasing number of zoonotic microbial species are being recognised as emerging and re-emerging diseases in humans, th...

Incidence and Predictors of First Line Anti-Retroviral Therapy Failure among Adults Receiving HIV Care in North West Ethiopia: A Hospital-Based Follow-Up Study

Tsegaw Agezew, MSC, Abilo Tadesse, MD, Lemma Derseh, MPH and Mekonnen Yimer, MD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 14, 2019

Antiretroviral therapy (ART) restores immune function and reduces HIV-related adverse outcomes. Patients on ART are recommended to periodic monitoring to ensure effective and durable treatment outcomes. Treatment failure is the main indication for ART switching and assessed by criteria used to define virologic, immunologic or clinical failure. A retrospective follow up study was conducted from June 1, to August 30, 2018 to determine the incidence and associated factors with first line ART failure among 315 adult ART users who started treatment between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2017. Dat...

Haemoglobin Level in Oldest Old with Active Aging: Analysis of a Brazilian Population

Niele Silva de Moraes, Thais Priscila Biassi, GrazielleMecabo, Elvira Maria Guerra Shinohara, Maysa Seabra Cendoroglo, Thiago Xavier Carneiro and Maria Stella Figueiredo

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 14, 2019

The decline in haemoglobin (Hb) levels with advanced age is a widely known event. Nevertheless, it remains unclear whether this is a normal consequence of aging or a feature of age-related comorbidities. The World Health Organisation (WHO) definition of anaemia, although commonly used, was based on small epidemiological data and did not include individuals over 64-years-old. The aim of the present study is to evaluate haemoglobin levels and establish a reference range for a Brazilian population of the oldest old with active aging....

Danielle A Walker, Kyle L Johnson, Tara B Thomas, Sandor Dorgo and Jacen S Moore

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 13, 2019

Approximately 37 million people worldwide are infected with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), with the majority located in sub-Saharan Africa. The relationship existing between HIV incidence and socioeconomic inequity confirms the critical need for programs promoting HIV education, prevention and treatment access. This literature review analyzed 36 sources with a specific focus on the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), whose critically low socioeconomic status and education rate have resulted in a drastically high HIV rates. Relationships between HIV testing and treatment and barriers t...

The Efficacy of Three Indigenous Plants (Tetrapleura tetraptera, Bridelia ferruginea and Azadirachta indica) as Plant Derived Molluscicides against Fresh Water Snails

Afolabi Olajide Joseph, Ojo Babatunde David and Simon-Oke Iyabo Adepeju

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: March 13, 2019

Schistosomiasis is a parasitic disease transmitted by fresh water snail infected with the Schistosoma parasites. The disease is endemic in many parts of Asia, Africa, and South America affecting people who are unable to avoid contact with water, either because of their profession or because of lack of reliable source of safe water for drinking, washing and bathing. The study focused on the molluscicidal activities of the oil extracts of Tetrapleura tetraptera, Bridelia ferruginea and Azadirachta indica on freshwater snails. The snails were collected from a stream at Ipogun village, which is ab...
