Improving maternal, newborn, and child health is central to Sustainable Development Goal targets for 2030, requiring acceleration especially to prevent 5.6 million deaths around the time of birth. Infections contribute to this burden, but etiological data are limited. Group B Streptococcus (GBS) is an important perinatal pathogen, although previously focus has been primarily on liveborn children, especially early-onset disease. In this first of an 11-article supplement, we discuss the following: (1) Why estimate the worldwide burden of GBS disease? (2) What outcomes of GBS in pregnancy should be included? (3) What data and epidemiological parameters are required? (4) What methods and models can be used to transparently estimate this burden of GBS? (5) What are the challenges with available data? and (6) How can estimates address data gaps to better inform GBS interventions including maternal immunization? We review all available GBS data worldwide, including maternal GBS colonization, risk of neonatal disease (with/without intrapartum antibiotic prophylaxis), maternal GBS disease, neonatal/infant GBS disease, and subsequent impairment, plus GBS-associated stillbirth, preterm birth, and neonatal encephalopathy...

In this work, explicit expressions to estimate all the transversely isotropic elastic constants of lamellar bone as a function of the volumetric bone mineral density (BMD) are provided. The methodology presented is based on the direct homogenization procedure using the finite element method, the continuum approach based on the Hill bounds, the least-square method and the mean field technique. Firstly, a detailed description of the volumetric content of the different components of bone is provided. The parameters defined in this step are related to the volumetric BMD considering that bone mineralization process occurs at the smallest scale length of the bone tissue...

BACKGROUND: Prolonged hospital length of stay (PLOS) after heart transplantation increases cost and morbidity. To better inform care, we developed a risk score to identify patients at risk for PLOS after heart transplantation. METHODS: We queried the United Network for Organ Sharing Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients database for adult patients who underwent isolated heart transplantation from 2003 to 2012. The population was randomly divided into a derivation cohort (80%) and a validation cohort (20%)...

Opportunistic pathogens are a worldwide cause of mortality and morbidity, and infections with intrinsically antibiotic-resistant pathogens have a large clinical, social and economic impact. Bacteria belonging to the Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc), ubiquitous in natural and industrial environments, are notorious pathogens for individuals with cystic fibrosis (CF). In addition, Burkholderia cenocepacia is emerging as the culprit of non-CF related, sometimes fatal infections. Knowledge of the underlying infection mechanism of these pathogens is important for efficient treatment, however, to date not much is known about the lifestyle of Bcc bacteria during infection...

BACKGROUND: Multiple oncogenic viruses including, mouse mammary tumor virus, bovine leukemia virus, human papilloma virus, and Epstein Barr virus, have been identified as separate infectious pathogens in human breast cancer. Here we demonstrate that these four viruses may be present in normal and benign breast tissues 1 to 11 years before the development of same virus breast cancer in the same patients. METHODS: We combined the data we developed during investigations of the individual four oncogenic viruses and breast cancer...

Identification and characterization of large protein complexes is a mainstay of biochemical toolboxes. Utilization of cross-linking chemicals can facilitate the capture and identification of transient or weak interactions of a transient nature (Huang and Kim, PloS One 8:e61430, 2013; Gao et al., J Vis Exp doi: 10.3791/51387, 2014). Here we describe a detailed methodology for a cell culture-based proteomic approach. We describe the generation of cells stably expressing green fluorescent protein (GFP)-tagged proteins under the tetracycline-inducible promoter and subsequent proteomic analysis of GFP-interacting proteins...
