CDC’s 2022 STI Surveillance Report underscores that STIs must be a public health priority Yet again, more than 2.5 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis were reported in the United States

https://www.cdc.gov/std/statistics/2022/default.htm?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery Sexually Transmitted Infections Surveillance, 2022 provides the most current and complete data for nationally notifiable STIs for federally funded control programs. CDC’s annual report underscores that STIs must be a public health priority. In 2022, more than 2.5 million cases of syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia were reported in the United States. The most alarming concerns center around the syphilis and congenital syphilis epidemics, signaling an urgent need for swift innovation and collaboration from all STI prevention partners. In addition to the syphilis epidemic worsening, reported gonorrhea cases declined for the first time in at least a decade while reported chlamydia cases were level. CDC will continue to examine this finding closely and look to 2023 data for better understanding, but recognize this finding may be a cause for an even closer look at public health efforts and redoubled prevention strategies. As STI services and related resources continue to rebound from the U.S. COVID-19 pandemic and mpox outbreak, we must act now to mobilize and execute a whole-of-nation approach if we hope to turn the tide.

Smart nanoprobe illuminates prostate cancer cells

Smart nanoprobe illuminates prostate cancer cells: NIBIB-supported researchers have developed a smart nanoprobe designed to infiltrate prostate tumors and send back a signal using an optical imaging technique known as Raman spectroscopy. The new probe, evaluated in mice, has the potential to determine tumor aggressiveness and could also enable sequential monitoring of tumors during therapy to quickly determine if a treatment strategy is working.

There’s good reason to fear cancer, the second leading cause of death (behind heart disease) in the U.S., but fear of cancer can also be deadly. That fear, or cancer-phobia, as journalist and author Ropeik calls it, keeps people from seeing their doctors or getting screening tests that might improve their chances if they do in fact have cancer. Even after a daunting diagnosis of lung cancer, people in a recent study delayed coming in for treatment by a median of more than three months. Lung cancer is not the exception, and even a world-renowned cancer expert fearing prostate cancer fell into the avoidance camp. “The War on Cancer badly needs another front, to battle the damage that too much fear of this dread disease can generate,” Ropeik concludes.

After a decade of challenges, researchers from industry and academia presented a slew of promising early data this week at the American Association for Cancer Research annual meeting in San Diego. Results from two early-stage clinical trials hint at when cancer vaccines may become important: in preventing or lowering the risk of relapse after surgery. One is an early-phase trial of a personalized neoantigen vaccine from the French biotech Transgene for head and neck cancer. The other trial is of a BioNTech and Genentech cancer vaccine for pancreatic cancer patients after surgery. “If you’ve actually removed the majority of the tumor and you stimulate immunity, it can provide long-term immune-surveillance — that is a setting that makes a lot of sense,” said Catherine Wu of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. “If you give it in a relapse setting, it’s just a higher hurdle to overcome.” STAT’s Angus Chen explains.

Lyme Disease

https://www.nccih.nih.gov/health/lyme-disease?nav=govd As the weather improves in many parts of the country and people spend more time outdoors, Lyme disease becomes a concern. Lyme disease is the most common tickborne infectious disease in the United States. Common symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a red rash that sometimes looks like a bull’s eye. Antibiotics are the only known effective treatment for Lyme disease. There hasn’t been enough research on “natural” or other alternative treatments for Lyme disease, such as essential oils or oxygen, energy, nutritional, or herbal therapies, to show whether they are effective.

Vasculitis Published: April 1, 2024

Executive Summary Substantial advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of the three major forms of vasculitis—antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis, giant cell arteritis, and IgG4-related disease—have occurred over the past two decades. However, clinical management of patients with vasculitis remains challenging, and treatment options are limited. Glucocorticoids remain the mainstay of therapy, with two targeted therapies (tocilizumab and avacopan) now approved for specific types of vasculitis. Although treatment can lead to remission of disease, sustained remission without ongoing maintenance therapy is not viable. As the knowledge of these conditions has expanded, stark polarisations within each form of vasculitis have emerged. This Series in The Lancet Rheumatology explores these pathophysiological polarisations with two complimentary reviews on each major vasculitide, exploring the two ends of each disease spectrum, with the aim of inspiring clinicians and scientists to gain a better understanding of, and to ultimately aid in developing better treatment options for patients across the spectre of these three diseases. https://www.thelancet.com/series/vasculitis?dgcid=hubspot_update_feature_lanrhevasculitis24&utm_campaign=update-lanrhe&utm_medium=email&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-_-n6Oy1jYY-tsxfrBJFewG7ZlqeAmR9-VemZ_JptbuTorg7yrA2OGzgA9cWfyEeeZ6jFDSOA66MqyNaC2zjHbwI-RiRQ&_hsmi=301059987&utm_content=301031930&utm_source=hs_email

FDA Approves New Antibiotic for Three Different Uses

https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/fda-approves-new-antibiotic-three-different-uses?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery FDA Approves New Antibiotic for Three Different Uses Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Zevtera (ceftobiprole medocaril sodium for injection) for the treatment of adults with Staphylococcus aureus bloodstream infections (bacteremia) (SAB), including those with right-sided infective endocarditis; adults with acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI); and adult and pediatric patients three months to less than 18 years old with community-acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP). “The FDA is committed to fostering new antibiotic availability when they prove to be safe and effective, and Zevtera will provide an additional treatment option for a number of serious bacterial infections,” said Peter Kim, M.D., M.S., director of the Division of Anti-Infectives in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. “The FDA will continue our important work in this area as part of our efforts to protect the public health.” Zevtera’s efficacy in treating SAB was evaluated in a randomized, controlled, double-blind, multinational, multicenter trial. In the trial, researchers randomly assigned 390 subjects to receive Zevtera (192 subjects) or daptomycin plus optional aztreonam [the comparator] (198 subjects). The primary measure of efficacy for this trial was the overall success (defined as survival, symptom improvement, S. aureus bacteremia bloodstream clearance, no new S. aureus bacteremia complications and no use of other potentially effective antibiotics) at the post-treatment evaluation visit, which occurred 70 days after being randomly assigned an antibiotic. A total of 69.8% of subjects who received Zevtera achieved overall success compared to 68.7% of subjects who received the comparator. Zevtera’s efficacy in treating ABSSSI was evaluated in a randomized, controlled, double-blind, multinational trial. In the trial, researchers randomly assigned 679 subjects to receive either Zevtera (335 subjects) or vancomycin plus aztreonam [the comparator] (344 subjects). The primary measure of efficacy was early clinical response 48-72 hours after start of treatment. Early clinical response required a reduction of the primary skin lesion by at least 20%, survival for at least 72 hours and the absence of additional antibacterial treatment or unplanned surgery. Of the subjects who received Zevtera, 91.3% achieved an early clinical response within the necessary timeframe compared to 88.1% of subjects who received the comparator. Zevtera’s efficacy in treating adult patients with CABP was evaluated in a randomized, controlled, double-blind, multinational, multicenter trial. In the trial, researchers randomly assigned 638 adults hospitalized with CABP and requiring IV antibacterial treatment for at least 3 days to receive either Zevtera (314 subjects) or ceftriaxone with optional linezolid [the comparator] (324 subjects). The primary measurement of efficacy were clinical cure rates at test-of-cure visit, which occurred 7-14 days after end-of-treatment. Of the subjects who received Zevtera, 76.4% achieved clinical cure compared to 79.3% of subjects who received the comparator. An additional analysis considered an earlier timepoint of clinical success at Day 3, which was 71% in patients receiving Zevtera and 71.1% in patients receiving the comparator. Given the similar course of CABP in adults and pediatric patients, today’s approval of Zevtera in pediatric patients three months to less than 18 years with CABP was supported by evidence from the CABP trial of Zevtera in adults and a trial in 138 pediatric subjects three months to less than 18 years of age with pneumonia. For adults with SAB, the most common side effects of Zevtera included anemia, nausea, low levels of potassium in the blood (hypokalemia), vomiting, diarrhea, increased levels of certain liver tests (hepatic enzymes and bilirubin), increased blood creatinine, high blood pressure, low white blood cell count (leukopenia), fever, abdominal pain, fungal infection, headache and shortness of breath (dyspnea). For adults with ABSSSI, the most common side effects of Zevtera included nausea, diarrhea, headache, injection site reaction, increased levels of hepatic enzymes, rash, vomiting and altered taste (dysgeusia). For adults with CABP, the most common side effects of Zevtera included nausea, increased levels of hepatic enzymes, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, rash, insomnia, abdominal pain, vein inflammation (phlebitis), high blood pressure and dizziness. For pediatric patients with CABP, the most common side effects of Zevtera included vomiting, headache, increased levels of hepatic enzymes, diarrhea, infusion site reaction, vein inflammation (phlebitis) and fever. Patients should not use Zevtera if they have a known history of severe hypersensitivity to ceftobiprole or any of the components of Zevtera, or other members of the cephalosporin antibacterial class. Zevtera comes with certain warnings and precautions such as increased mortality in ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia patients (an unapproved use), hypersensitivity reactions, seizures and other central nervous system reactions and Clostridioides difficile-associated diarrhea. Zevtera was granted Priority Review, Fast Track and Qualified Infectious Disease Product designations for the CABP, ABSSSI and SAB indications. The FDA granted the approval of Zevtera to Basilea Pharmaceutica International Ltd.

Is Food Safe if it Has Chemicals? Assessing the safety of additives and other chemicals in food includes scientific study of how much of a chemical is in a food and how much we're likely to eat.

https://www.fda.gov/consumers/consumer-updates/food-safe-if-it-has-chemicals You may have seen news or online content about chemicals in our foods. Perhaps you’re wondering, is a food safe to eat if it contains chemicals? All our food — like everything in the world — is made up of chemicals. The presence of a chemical alone isn’t what determines whether a food is safe to eat. To assess the safety of chemicals in food, scientists at the FDA and others worldwide look at information about the chemical’s safety, as well as how much of a chemical is in the food and how much a person eats or drinks. It’s the amount that counts.

Facts about COVID-19

https://www.fda.gov/news-events/rumor-control/facts-about-covid-19 Fact: Blood donated by individuals who have received an FDA-approved/authorized COVID-19 vaccine and meet all required eligibility criteria for blood donation is safe for transfusion. More Information: The FDA does not recommend a deferral period for individuals who have received a nonreplicating, inactivated, or mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccine, which encompasses all FDA approved or authorized COVID-19 vaccines. Individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 or have received COVID-19 vaccines or other vaccines are eligible to donate blood, and the U.S. depends on such volunteer blood donors to save patients’ lives when they need a blood transfusion. Bottom Line: Blood donated by individuals who have received an FDA-approved/authorized COVID-19 vaccine and meet all required eligibility criteria for blood donation is safe for transfusion.

People in Republican-voting states were more likely to report adverse events after receiving a Covid-19 vaccination than people living in Democratic-leaning states, a new analysis in JAMA Network Open finds, suggesting that how people view their post-vaccine side effects or decide whether to report them may be shaped by their political views. https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamanetworkopen/fullarticle/2816958?utm_term=032924&utm_campaign=ftm_links&utm_medium=referral&_hsmi=300634896&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-_M5PkqKl9lg5oXfE3mudRyUVmccuED62Mv91oFJtjy0yAUH1fRczD7r87T3hgoP1uxdI0fvJ4TJEBFBtyMOUNw8t_eMA&utm_source=For_The_Media There’s precedent. More people died of Covid-19 in states where more voters registered as Republicans and voted that way. Counties in Donald Trump’s column in 2020 were much less likely to get Covid vaccinations than counties that voted for President Biden. “The anti-vaccine movement might have started out along libertarian lines like, ‘Let’s not have compulsory vaccination,’ but it gradually moved into thinking that either the vaccines weren’t effective or that they were unsafe,” study author David Asch told STAT’s Elizabeth Cooney.

Borrowing an idea from cancer immunotherapy, scientists make old-mice immune systems youthful again Megan Molteni By Megan Molteni March 27, 2024

Scientists rejuvenate immune systems in old mice https://www.statnews.com/2024/03/27/immune-system-rejuvenated-stanford-research-aging-stem-cells/?utm_campaign=morning_rounds&utm_medium=email&_hsmi=300173672&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-9LdG7gS0Q3u_zaRNd_Ugi1rSDc4Ir4V1dpQSdFWM-MQAMo28haur2UIdSVQS9rJk2D1NM5dfr4C8LnJ5-AzXHrKLCkpQ&utm_content=300173672&utm_source=hs_email The “twilight of immunity” has a much more poetic flavor than almost any other phrase describing our bodies’ deterioration with age. STAT’s Megan Motleni calls this to mind in today’s story about research seeking to explain how our aging immune systems leave us more vulnerable to infection. Reporting in Nature yesterday on their experiments in mice, scientists traced waning immune strength to the bone marrow where blood and immune cells originate from hematopoietic stem cells. The balance of immune memory cells, blood cells, and front-line defenders shifts over time depending on what kind of cells are produced, with an impact on how well they work against invaders. When the scientists restored a youthful balance of these cells with injections of antibodies, they were able to rejuvenate the immune systems of older mice — allowing them to better fend off viral attacks. Megan has more on whether and how this might hold up in humans, plus the rich history behind the work.
