KOL-Index: 83 INTRODUCTION: 18-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) is a well-established tool for managing metastatic infections. Nocardiosis, a primarily pulmonary infection, disseminates at high rates. Routine imaging includes chest CT and brain imaging. We examined the use of FDG-PET/CT in nocardiosis and assessed its contribution to diagnosis and ...

KOL-Index: 58 Obesity is associated with an increased susceptibility to infections. Several studies have reported adverse clinical outcomes of influenza among obese individuals. Our aim was to examine the association between obesity and the clinical outcomes of hospitalized adult patients ill with seasonal influenza. Consecutive hospitalized adult patients between 10/2017 and 4/2018 with laboratory ...

KOL-Index: 48 OBJECTIVES: Epidemiological studies have suggested an association between increased colistin use and selection for inherently colistin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (ICRE). We aimed to evaluate whether colistin exposure is a risk factor for ICRE infection. METHODS: A matched 1:1 case-control study including patients recently hospitalized for ≥14 days with ICRE infection as cases matched with ...

KOL-Index: 42 OBJECTIVE: Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) may pose a serious threat to immunocompromised patients (IMC). Herein, we evaluated the clinical outcomes of IMC patients with CDI. METHODS: All consecutive hospitalized patients between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2018 with laboratory confirmed CDI were included in the study. Subjects were divided into two groups: IMC patients and ...

KOL-Index: 36 An essential part of the Israeli intervention program aimed to contain the spread of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacterales (CPE) has been the establishment of national surveillance system, where the institutional rates are determined by both clinical and surveillance cultures. The objectives of the study were to analyze the effect of changes in surveillance culture media on the rates and ...

KOL-Index: 34 In pediatric brain tumours, dissemination of malignant cells within the central nervous system confers poor prognosis and determines treatment intensity, but is often undetectable by imaging or cytology. This study describes the use of fluorescence lifetime (FLT) imaging microscopy (FLIM), a novel diagnostic tool, for detection of metastatic spread. The study group included 15 children with ...

KOL-Index: 34 Secondary bacterial infections are a potentially fatal complication of influenza infection. We aimed to define the impact of secondary bacterial infections on the clinical course and mortality in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients by comparison with influenza patients. COVID-19 (n = 642) and influenza (n = 742) patients, admitted to a large tertiary center in Israel and for whom ...

KOL-Index: 32 The BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine is highly effective against SARS-CoV-2. However, apprehension exists that variants of concern (VOCs) may evade vaccine protection, due to evidence of reduced neutralization of the VOCs B.1.1.7 and B.1.351 by vaccine sera in laboratory assays. We performed a matched cohort study to examine the distribution of VOCs in infections of BNT162b2 mRNA vaccinees from Clalit ...

KOL-Index: 29 OBJECTIVES: We aimed to evaluate the rates of antibody response to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) mRNA vaccine among kidney transplant recipients, and to identify factors associated with reduced immunogenicity. METHODS: This was a prospective cohort study including consecutive kidney transplant recipients in a single referral transplant centre. Participants were ...

KOL-Index: 28 BackgroundCharacteristics of hepatitis B (HBV) and delta (HDV) coinfection in various geographical regions, including Israel, remain unclear. Here we studied HDV seroprevalence in Israel, assessed HDV/HBV viral loads, circulating genotypes and hepatitis delta antigen (HDAg) conservation.MethodsSerological anti HDV IgG results from 8969 HBsAg positive individuals tested in 2010-2015 were ...
