                        Abstract Background People living with diabetes have an increased risk of developing active tuberculosis and are more likely to have poor tuberculosis-treatment outcomes, which may impact on control of tuberculosis as the prevalence of diabetes is increasing worldwide. Blood transcriptomes are altered in active ...

                        Molecular Testing for Acute Respiratory Tract Infections: Clinical and Diagnostic Recommendations From the IDSA’s Diagnostics Committee
                        Kimberly E Hanson et al.
                        Molecular assays have revolutionized the diagnosis of acute respiratory tract infections. However, many unanswered questions about the optimal use and cost-effectiveness of these tests remain. Additional prospective diagnostic studies are needed to measure impact on medical decision making and clinical outcomes.
                        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.
