                        West Nile Virus-associated Hospitalizations, California, USA, 2004–2017
                        Robert E Snyder et al.
                        Abstract Background West Nile virus (WNV) is the most commonly reported mosquito-borne disease in the United States. California reports more WNV disease than any other state. Methods We identified WNV-associated hospitalizations from 2004 through 2017 in California and estimated hospitalization incidence using California ...

                        Extended Antibiotic Treatment Duration After Debridement, Antibiotic Therapy, and Implant Retention
                        Johan Courjon, Pascal Del Guidice
                        TO THE EDITOR—We read with interest the work of Shah et al [ 1 ] recently published in Clinical Infectious Diseases . The study supported the use of extended antibiotic treatment duration (ie, 12 months) during the management of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) with debridement, ...
                        Reply to Courjon and Del Giudice
                        Neel B Shah et al.
                        TO THE EDITOR—One of the challenges in the management of prosthetic joint infection (PJI) involves the diverse range of criteria that are used to establish the differences between acute and chronic PJI. Proposed classification schemes for PJI have been based on multiple factors, including timing of infection after ...

                        Molecular testing for acute respiratory tract infections: clinical and diagnostic recommendations from the IDSA’s Diagnostics Committee
                        Kimberly E Hanson, MD, MHS et al.
                        Abstract The clinical signs and symptoms of acute respiratory tract infections (RTIs) are not pathogen specific. Highly sensitive and specific nucleic acid amplification tests have become the diagnostic reference standard for viruses and translation of bacterial assays from basic research to routine clinical practice ...
                        A “Natural Death”: The Political Battlefield of Infections and Migrant Children’s Bodies
                        Mark A Travassos
                        Recent deaths of migrant children from overwhelming infections in US detainment centers have brought to light outbreaks in these facilities, delays in medical care, and inadequate medical expertise. Advocacy by clinicians and professional societies is critical to resolving this crisis.
                        We Need to Address the Health of Children at the Border
                        Betsy C Herold et al.
                        ( See the Viewpoints by Travassos on pages 2721–3. ) This issue’s article by Travassos [ 1 ] illustrates the complex medical challenges that children who immigrate to the United States with their families and are subsequently held at the southern border for prolonged periods face. The conditions at the border are an ...
                        Development of Daptomycin Susceptibility Breakpoints for Enterococcus faecium and Revision of the Breakpoints for Other Enterococcal Species by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute
                        Michael J Satlin et al.
                        Abstract Daptomycin is one of the few treatment options for infections caused by enterococci that are resistant to ampicillin and vancomycin, such as vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium . The emergence and clinical significance of daptomycin-resistant enterococci and evolving microbiologic, ...
                        The Limitations of the Rheumatogenic Concept for Group A Streptococcus: Systematic Review and Genetic Analysis
                        Gabrielle de Crombrugghe et al.
                        Wide genetic distribution of group A?streptococcus emm types was associated with acute rheumatic fever. Rheumatogenic motifs were infrequent. Microbiology studies on rheumatic fever pathogenesis should also examine previously called nonrheumatogenic emm types. Vaccine development should aim for broad strain coverage.
