Resveratrol, an antioxidant found in red wine and certain foods, has been touted as a natural way to slow aging and fight cancer, obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. Scientists at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine analyzed information from about men and women ages 65 and older whose diets were naturally rich in resveratrol from food.

Case Study: A Urinary Tract Infection
Case Study Sample: A Urinary Tract Infection
Throughout healthcare, the physical environment represents an important source of pathogens that can cause infections or carry antibiotic resistance. Sometimes, the healthcare environment is a primary source of germs. Consider that molds can be present on wet or damp surfaces or materials, and bacteria can be present in plumbing fixtures including sink drains or ice machines. The way that humans interact with the healthcare environment also plays a role. For example, when a healthcare worker fails to wash their hands, they might touch and contaminate a piece of equipment or environmental surface; in turn the equipment or surface could wind up exposing a patient to pathogens. These examples illustrate the importance of environmental infection prevention and control in the healthcare setting. Water and environmental surfaces are two intersecting parts of the healthcare environment that contribute to the spread of antibiotic resistance and healthcare associated infections.
Urinary Tract Infections With Extended-spectrum-β-lactamase-producing Bacteria: Case-control Study
Since June , several case reports and series have been published reporting a similar multisystem inflammatory syndrome in adults MIS-A. Cases reported to CDC and published case reports and series identify MIS-A in adults, who usually require intensive care and can have fatal outcomes. Further research is needed to understand the pathogenesis and long-term effects of this condition. Clinical features in children have varied but predominantly include shock, cardiac dysfunction, abdominal pain, and elevated inflammatory markers, including C-reactive protein CRP , ferritin, D-dimer, and interleukin-6 1.
