1 Microbial Ecology in States of Health and Disease - Eileen R. Choffnes, Forum on Microbial Health, Board on Global Health & Institute of Medicine
Auteur : Eileen R. Choffnes, Forum on Microbial Health, Board on Global Health & Institute of Medicine
Genre : Médecine
Individually and collectively, resident microbes play important roles in host health and survival. Shaping and shaped by their host environments, these microorganisms form intricate communities that are in a state of dynamic equilibrium. This ecologic and dynamic view of host-microbe interactions is rapidly redefining our view of health and disease. It is now accepted that the vast majority of microbes are, for the most part, not intrinsically harmful, but rather become established as persistent, co-adapted colonists in equilibrium with their environment, providing useful goods and services to their hosts while deriving benefits from these host associations. Disruption of such alliances may have consequences for host health, and investigations in a wide variety of organisms have begun to illuminate the complex and dynamic network of interaction - across the spectrum of hosts, microbes, a

2 Fungal Diseases - LeighAnne Olsen, Forum on Microbial Threats, Board on Global Health & Institute of Medicine
Auteur : LeighAnne Olsen, Forum on Microbial Threats, Board on Global Health & Institute of Medicine
Genre : Médecine
Fungal diseases have contributed to death and disability in humans, triggered global wildlife extinctions and population declines, devastated agricultural crops, and altered forest ecosystem dynamics. Despite the extensive influence of fungi on health and economic well-being, the threats posed by emerging fungal pathogens to life on Earth are often underappreciated and poorly understood. On December 14 and 15, 2010, the IOM's Forum on Microbial Threats hosted a public workshop to explore the scientific and policy dimensions associated with the causes and consequences of emerging fungal diseases.

3 The Science and Applications of Microbial Genomics - Eileen R. Choffnes, Forum on Microbial Threats, Board on Global Health & Institute of Medicine
Auteur : Eileen R. Choffnes, Forum on Microbial Threats, Board on Global Health & Institute of Medicine
Genre : Science de la vie
Over the past several decades, new scientific tools and approaches for detecting microbial species have dramatically enhanced our appreciation of the diversity and abundance of the microbiota and its dynamic interactions with the environments within which these microorganisms reside. The first bacterial genome was sequenced in 1995 and took more than 13 months of work to complete. Today, a microorganism's entire genome can be sequenced in a few days. Much as our view of the cosmos was forever altered in the 17th century with the invention of the telescope, these genomic technologies, and the observations derived from them, have fundamentally transformed our appreciation of the microbial world around us. On June 12 and 13, 2012, the Institute of Medicine's (IOM's) Forum on Microbial Threats convened a public workshop in Washington, DC, to discuss the scientific tools and approaches being

4 Improving Food Safety Through a One Health Approach - Eileen R. Choffnes, Forum on Microbial Threats, Board on Global Health & Institute of Medicine
Auteur : Eileen R. Choffnes, Forum on Microbial Threats, Board on Global Health & Institute of Medicine
Genre : Médecine
Globalization of the food supply has created conditions favorable for the emergence, reemergence, and spread of food-borne pathogens-compounding the challenge of anticipating, detecting, and effectively responding to food-borne threats to health. In the United States, food-borne agents affect 1 out of 6 individuals and cause approximately 48 million illnesses, 128,000 hospitalizations, and 3,000 deaths each year. This figure likely represents just the tip of the iceberg, because it fails to account for the broad array of food-borne illnesses or for their wide-ranging repercussions for consumers, government, and the food industry-both domestically and internationally. A One Health approach to food safety may hold the promise of harnessing and integrating the expertise and resources from across the spectrum of multiple health domains including the human and veterinary medical and plant pat

Auteur : Microbial Drug Resistance
Genre : Forme et santé
Introduction WORLDWIDE BETA-LACTAM RESISTANCE among Enterobacteriaceae, mediated by extended-spectrum betalactamases (ESBLs), is increasing. Data on ESBLs from The Netherlands are, however, limited to only two older studies, and it is expected that the prevalence of ESBLs is increasing in The Netherlands, despite restrictive antimicrobial policies. (1,23) Moreover, surveillance programs also report trends of rising third-generation cephalosporin resistance in Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae. (8,24) The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of ESBLs and to characterize the ESBL genes in consecutive unselected clinical isolates of E. coli, K. pneumoniae, and Klebsiella oxytoca collected at the University Medical Centre Nijmegen, The Netherlands. In addition, the detection of ESBLs using the Phoenix automated microbiology system (Becton Dickinson, Sparks, MD) as a fir

Auteur : Microbial Drug Resistance
Genre : Forme et santé
Introduction Staphylococcus aureus is the most common bacterial pathogen in humans, causing a wide range of infectious diseases. Since the 1960s, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has been recognized as a life-threatening multidrug-resistant bacterium worldwide and has been a major cause of nosocomial infections; therefore, this MRSA is alternatively called hospital acquired- (or healthcare associated) (HA-) MRSA. (16) It is believed that MRSA is generated from methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA) by acquisition in its chromosome of staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec), a genetic element containing mecA, which is critical to methicillin resistance. SCCmec elements are diverse in their structural organization and genetic content and have been classified into several types and subtypes.

9 Global Infectious Disease Surveillance and Detection - Forum on Microbial Threats
Auteur : Forum on Microbial Threats
Genre : Médecine
Early detection is essential to the control of emerging, reemerging, and novel infectious diseases, whether naturally occurring or intentionally introduced. Containing the spread of such diseases in a profoundly interconnected world requires active vigilance for signs of an outbreak, rapid recognition of its presence, and diagnosis of its microbial cause, in addition to strategies and resources for an appropriate and efficient response. Although these actions are often viewed in terms of human public health, they also challenge the plant and animal health communities.
Surveillance, defined as "the continual scrutiny of all aspects of occurrence and spread of a disease that are pertinent to effective control", involves the "systematic collection, analysis, interpretation, and dissemination of health data." Disease detection and diagnosis is the act of discovering a novel, emerging,

10 Addressing Foodborne Threats to Health - Forum on Microbial Threats
Auteur : Forum on Microbial Threats
Genre : Médecine
In December 2004, at a press conference called to announce his departure as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Tommy Thompson raised both concern and controversy when he remarked that he could not understand why the terrorists had not yet attacked our food supply "because it is so easy to do." Although to date the United States has been spared such a disaster, the many documented examples of unintentional outbreaks of foodborne disease—some of which have sickened hundreds of thousands of people, and killed hundreds—provide a grim basis for estimating the impact of deliberate food adulteration. Due to the wide variety of potential chemical and biological agents that could be introduced at many vulnerable points along the food supply continuum, contaminating food is considered an especially simple, yet effective, means to threaten large populations.

Metaphor
11 Ending the War Metaphor - Forum on Microbial Threats
Auteur : Forum on Microbial Threats
Genre : Médecine
Infectious diseases have existed longer than us, as long as us, or are relatively newer than us. It may be the case that a disease has existed for many, many years but has only recently begun affecting humans. At the turn of the century the number of deaths caused by infections in the United States had been falling steadily but since the '80s has seen an increase. In the past 30 years alone 37 new pathogens have been identified as human disease threats and 12% of known human pathogens have been classified as either emerging or remerging. Whatever the story, there is currently a "war" on infectious diseases. This war is simply the systematic search for the microbial "cause" of each disease, followed by the development of antimicrobial therapies.

The "war" on infectious diseases, however, must be revisited in order to develop a more realistic and detailed picture of the dynamic

Cholera and Tuberculosis are among the major causes of outbreak among the human communities. They differ in their geographical interest; the former remained a daunting challenge among the developing countries, while the later is still producing medical alarm in the developed countries. The health implication of an outbreak can be summarized in the following ways:
-It causes rapid draining and shrinking of human resources and economy
-It attacks and disturbs human emotionally and socially.
WHO, CDC & other health agencies have taken into account the recent outbreaks caused by the above infectious diseases in various regions across the globe. We can arrest these microbial activities if we follow strictly the seven fundamentals for immediate control of microbial outbreak

15 Microbial Interventions in Agriculture and Environment - Dhananjaya Pratap Singh & Ratna Prabha
Auteur : Dhananjaya Pratap Singh & Ratna Prabha
Genre : Agriculture
Microbial communities and their multi-functionalities play a crucial role in the management of soil and plant health, and thus help in managing agro-ecology, the environment and agriculture. Microorganisms are key players in N-fixation, nutrient acquisition, carbon sequestration, plant growth promotion, pathogen suppression, induced systemic resistance and tolerance against stresses, and these parameters are used as indicators of improved crop productivity and sustainable soil health. Beneficial belowground microbial interactions in the rhizosphere help plants combat abiotic challenges in the unfavourable environmental conditions of native soils. These microorganisms and their products offer potential solutions for agriculture in problematic areas since they are able to degrade xenobiotic compounds, pesticides and toxic chemicals and help remediate heavy metals in the rhizosphere and so

37 Their World: A Diversity of Microbial Environments - Christon J. Hurst
Auteur : Christon J. Hurst
Genre : Biologie
This volume summarizes recent advances in environmental microbiology by providing fascinating insights into the diversity of microbial life that exists on our planet. The first two chapters present theoretical perspectives that help to consolidate our understanding of evolution as an adaptive process by which the niche and habitat of each species develop in a manner that interconnects individual components of an ecosystem. This results in communities that function by simultaneously coordinating their metabolic and physiologic actions. The third contribution addresses the fossil record of microorganisms, and the subsequent chapters then introduce the microbial life that currently exists in various terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Coverage of the geosphere addresses endolithic organisms, life in caves and the deep continental biosphere, including how subsurface microbial life may impact
