HIV / AIDS and Infections - What You Need To Know
See much more honest health information at: http://www.rehealthify.com/ Rehealthify offers reliable, up-to-date health information, anytime, anywhere, for free. -- video script below -- Having HIV/AIDS weakens your body's immune system. Your immune system normally fights germs that enter your body. When HIV/AIDS makes it weak, it can't fight germs well. This can lead to serious infections that don't often affect healthy people. These are called opportunistic infections (OIs). There are many types of OIs. Tuberculosis and a serious related disease, Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) are bacterial infections. Viral infections include cytomegalovirus (CMV) and hepatitis C. Fungi cause thrush (candidiasis), cryptococcal meningitis, pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) and histoplasmosis, and parasites cause crypto (cryptosporidiosis) and toxo (toxoplasmosis). Having HIV/AIDS can make any infection harder to treat. People with AIDS are also more likely to suffer complications of common illnesses such as the flu. The good news is that you can help prevent infections by taking your HIV/AIDS medicines. Other things that can help include practicing safe sex, washing your hands well and often and cooking your food well.

FDA is highlighting the risk of life-threatening infections in patients treated with Raptiva (efalizumab). Raptiva is an immunosuppressant approved as a once a week injection to treat certain adult patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. FDA has received reports of serious infections in patients treated with Raptiva, in some cases leading to hospitalization and even death. A new boxed warning will highlight the risk of bacterial sepsis, viral meningitis, invasive fungal disease, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) and other opportunistic infections. Raptiva's label will also be updated to include data from studies of juvenile mice. These data suggest that repeated administration of Raptiva to pediatric patients may lead to permanent suppression of the immune system. Raptiva is not approved for children under 18 years of age. Prescribers should carefully evaluate the risk/benefit profile of Raptiva for patients who may be more susceptible to these risks. Before starting Raptiva, make sure patients are up-to-date on their vaccinations. During therapy, do not vaccinate patients with live or live attenuated vaccines. Also, giving inactivated vaccines during Raptiva treatment may not produce an adequate immune response. Patients should be taught to recognize the signs and symptoms of serious infections, as well as neurological disorders, anemia, thrombocytopenia, or the worsening of their psoriasis. If any of these signs appear, they should be told to seek immediate medical attention. FDA is requiring Raptiva's manufacturer to submit a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) which will include a medication guide for patients.

Is daycare making my child sick?
Has your child picked up colds and coughs on a more frequent basis since starting daycare? This is normal, and as long as your child is immunised and you observe appropriate hygiene measures, there is little else you can do to stop them from catching colds and viruses. Children who attend daycare catch viruses more frequently than children cared for at home, however once they reach school age they are less prone to viruses than children who did not attend daycare. So in other words, it all irons itself out in the end. Pappas, Diane E (2015, Sept 25). "The common cold in children: Clinical features and diagnosis." Retrieved from www.uptodate.com.

Unsafe Injection Practices in the U.S. Healthcare System
This session of Grand Rounds explored how unsafe injection practices which put patients at risk of infection have been associated with a wide variety of procedures and settings. Injectable medicines are commonly used in healthcare settings for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of various illnesses. Unsafe injections also increase the burden on patients, healthcare providers, and medical care and public health systems. These harms are preventable through renewed attention to infection control and injection safety practices, which will be a focus of the presentations at this Grand Rounds.

2nd Mass. Co. Shut Down as Precaution in Deadly Meningitis Outbreak
A 2nd Massachusetts pharmacy is shut down as a precaution in the Meningitis outbreak. Ameridose has agreed to voluntarily shut down while state and federal regulators investigate. That's because the same person who owns the New England Compounding Center where the tainted shots originated also owns Ameridose. Both are in Massachusetts. That state's Department of Health addressed the growing health crisis this evening."Ameridose, LLC proactively and voluntarily agreed to cease all manufacturing and compounding operations immediately," says Director of Health Care Safety and Quality for the Department of Public Health's Dr. Madeleine Biondolillo. "Ameridose and its partnering distributor Alanis Pharmaceuticals will cease distribution of all product manufactured and compounded by that company, or any of the companies under shared ownership for a time delineated period."At this point, Massachusetts health officials say they have not found mold-tainted steroid injections at the 2nd pharmacy, but they are investigating. We'll have CONTINUING COVERAGE of the Meningitis outbreak. You'll get any overnight developments on TENNESSEE MORNINGS.

22. AIDS (I)
Epidemics in Western Society Since 1600 (HIST 234) The global AIDS pandemic furnishes a case study for many of the themes addressed throughout the course. While in the developed West the disease largely afflicts concentrated high-risk groups such as intravenous drug users and the sexually promiscuous, in Southern Africa it is much more a generalized disease of poverty. In countries such as Botswana and Swaziland, the economic and social consequences of the disease have created a vicious circle, whereby the devastation wrought by AIDS severely impedes public health efforts and prepares the way for further infection. One important lesson that has been drawn from the past decades of struggle against the epidemic is therefore to take account of the specific, local characteristics of each affected area, making provision for the social as well as purely biological factors of transmission. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Valley Fever in Washington State - VFS and Dr. Tom Chiller (VFS Educational Film Series Part 7)
http://valleyfeversurvivor.com presents a new video with Dr. Tom Chiller, MD, MPHTM, Deputy Chief of the Centers for Disease Control's Mycotic Diseases Branch. Valley Fever in Washington State - VFS and Tom Chiller (Valley Fever Survivor Educational Film Series Part 7) When three people, two dogs and a horse were known to be infected with Valley Fever from 2010-11 in Eastern Washington, it wasn't necessarily something that would redraw the decades-old Valley Fever map. It could easily have been assumed that they either were infected during travel and Valley Fever simply activated later, or perhaps they inhaled spores off of something that had been shipped through the Southwest. DNA positive identification of Coccidioides immitis from Benton County soil samples in 2014, however, seem to show a major change in this disease's epidemiology. How is that possible? Will the maps be redrawn on this disease? How will this affect how the country deals with Valley Fever? Dr. Chiller will describe the CDC's work in Washington State and beyond as we consider the recent developments. http://valleyfeversurvivor.com has always been at the forefront of Valley Fever (coccidioidomycosis) patient advocacy and support. Now the Valley Fever Survivor Educational Film Series puts the information you need into short videos you can share with family and friends. You can depend on Valley Fever Survivor to give you the whole truth without whitewashing the disease or omitting the important details that you need to know. Do you need more information and support? See http://www.valleyfeversurvivor.com and find more information about Valley Fever symptoms, disseminated coccidioidomycosis, valley fever in dogs, and why this agent of bioterrorism had been on the CDC's select agent list for over a decade. Join a support group, see what you can do to improve your health, contact others with Valley Fever and more. All of this is centrally located at http://www.valleyfeversurvivor.com Also from VFS: Valley Fever Epidemic is the first and only complete and up-to-date book ever written on the airborne disease caused by the Southwest's naturally occurring biohazard. This book offers everything you need to know before or after going to these endemic areas and what to do if you contract this incurable, debilitating and deadly disease. Valley Fever (coccidioidomycosis) affects everyone from the unborn child to the great grandparent and even your pets. Regardless of how healthy anyone is prior to their Valley Fever infection, anyone who breathes is at risk. http://www.valleyfeverepidemic.com Also see our video about Valley Fever Epidemic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iCwuuZmLFk

EXCLUSIVE: New Meningitis Case is 72 Year Old Woman from Bethpage in Sumner Co.
One of the new Meningitis cases is a 72 year old woman from Bethpage in Sumner County, and her family is talking ONLY to FOX17. Johnnie McKee received a steroid shot at St. Thomas Hospital September 5 to treat back pain. The tainted shot was mixed at the New England Compounding Center in Massachusetts. Fred McKee says they thought they were out of the woods when they made it past the 28-day incubation period, but yesterday doctors told them to head to the hospital when his wife started experiencing an unusual pain in her tail bone. Tests at St. Thomas confirmed it was Meningitis and Mrs. McKee began a powerful IV drug therapy."She will do that for approximately 6 days and they'll do another spinal tap and compare the benchmark with the one they took last night as a beginning point," says McKee's husband Fred. "So, I think she's doing fine. I really do. Her spirits are good."Part of the reason for that optimism is doctors say Mrs. McKee was in excellent health when she came in. Fred McKee says they've got a lot of support from their children and church family and he's optimistic about a complete recovery. We'll have CONTINUING COVERAGE of the Meningitis outbreak. You'll get any overnight developments on TENNESSEE MORNINGS. You can stay up to date by going to Fox17.com and clicking on MENINGITIS in the HOT TOPICS section, or Facebook.com/FoxNashville.
