PROBLEM: Chronic diseases (e.g., heart diseases, cancer, chronic lower respiratory disease, stroke, diabetes, and arthritis) and unintentional injuries are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Behavioral risk factors (e.g., tobacco use, poor diet, physical inactivity, excessive alcohol consumption, failure to use seat belts, and insufficient sleep) are linked to the leading causes of death. Modifying these behavioral risk factors and using preventive health services (e...

Secondary bacterial infections are a leading cause of illness and death during epidemic and pandemic influenza. Experimental studies suggest a lethal synergism between influenza and certain bacteria, particularly Streptococcus pneumoniae, but the precise processes involved are unclear. To address the mechanisms and determine the influences of pathogen dose and strain on disease, we infected groups of mice with either the H1N1 subtype influenza A virus A/Puerto Rico/8/34 (PR8) or a version expressing the 1918 PB1-F2 protein (PR8-PB1-F2(1918)), followed seven days later with one of two S...

MULTICENTER STUDY
Idalia R Rivera-Matos, Eddy Rios-Olivares
Although antimicrobial resistance to Streptococcus pneumoniae has been increased dramatically worldwide, there is limited information of pattern of susceptibility for this pathogen in Puerto Rico. Hospital-based surveillance for invasive pneumococcal infections was begun among 38 hospitals island-wide in Puerto Rico from January to December, 2001. One hundred ninety-two cases of invasive pneumococcal disease were identified. Of the 177 isolates available for susceptibility testing, 50.3% were susceptible to penicillin and 49...

PROBLEM: High-risk behaviors and lack of preventive care are associated with higher rates of morbidity and mortality in the United States. Without continued monitoring of these factors, state health departments would have difficulty tracking and evaluating progress toward Healthy People 2010 and their own state objectives. Monitoring chronic disease-related behaviors is also key to developing targeted education and intervention programs at the national, state, and local levels to improve the health of the public...

Vaccination is an important public health intervention for reducing morbidity and mortality from influenza and pneumonia among persons with diabetes. A national health objective for 2000 is to increase influenza and pneumococcal vaccination rates to > or =60% among persons at high risk for complications from influenza and pneumonia, including persons with diabetes. Although the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that all persons with diabetes be vaccinated, data from the 1993 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) showed that 40% of persons with diabetes reported receiving an influenza vaccination within the previous year, and 21% reported ever receiving a pneumococcal vaccination...
