Abstract
Hospitals worldwide are currently suffering an epidemic of infections, generated in and spreading in those instituitions whose very "raison d'etre" is to protect and improve the health of their patients. This paradox comes at a time of possibly unprecedented investment in preventative measures (infection control). To better control these infections, however, we need to understand their causes, many of which are related, paradoxically, to the success of antibiotic therapy. It is possible that the golden era of antibiotics led subconsciously to a loss of emphasis on the importance of hygiene in the control of HAI. Moreover, the majority of HAIs are due to multiply antibiotic resistant bacteria whose emergence has been hastened by over-enthusiastic antibiotic prescribing. Accumulating evidence also suggests that antibiotics not only select for resistance but can actually increase the numbers of HAIs and even their virulence. This comprehensive compilation, written by eminent international researchers, explores these hypothesis in the context of recent epidemiology and evidence for the success of various antibiotic stewardship measures in controlling and even reversing resistance. It contains chapters by acclaimed authors on all the major causes of HAI, including MRSA, VRE, Clostridium difficile and multi resistant gram negative infections which are increasingly pan-resistant and untreatable; the nearest thing we have yet experienced to a "Doomsday bug". This book is an excellent source of information for students, researchers and practitioners in infection control, hospital epidemiology, antimicrobial prescribing and microbiology.
Contents
Healthcare Associated Infections: The Size of the Problem -- The Antibiotic Paradox -- The Epidemiology of Pan/Extreme Drug Resistance -- Hospital Antibiotic Stewardship to Control Resistance - how should it be done? -- Controlling Clostridium difficile infection and the role of antibiotic stewardship -- The control of MRSA -- The role of antibiotic policies in controlling VRE -- The control of ESBL producing bacteria -- Controlling Hospital-Acquired Infection due to Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) -- Control of multi-drug resistant Acinetobacter infections -- The control of multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas: Insights into epidemiology and management -- Multidrug-resistant infections in low-resource health care settings -- Germ Shed Management in the United States -- Required actions.

Abstract
Antimicrobial peptides have been the subject of intense research in the past decades, and are now considered as an essential part of the defense system in bacteria, plants, animals and humans. This book provides an update on these effector molecules of the innate immune system both for researchers who are already actively involved in the area, and for those with a general interest in the topic. The book starts with an overview of the evolution of cysteine-containing antimicrobial peptides (including defensins), and the role of these peptides in host defense in plants and micro-organisms. The realization that antimicrobial peptides also display functions distinct from their direct antimicrobial action is the focus of the next chapters, and puts these peptides center stage in immunity and wound repair. Further chapters discuss the role of antimicrobial peptides in disease, by providing an overview of mechanisms in bacterial resistance to antimicrobial peptides and a discussion of their role in inflammatory bowel disease, cystic fibrosis lung disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Finally, the book shows how knowledge of the function of antimicrobial peptides and their regulation can be used to design new therapies for inflammatory and infectious disorders. This is a very important area of research because of the increase in resistance of micro-organisms to conventional antibiotics. Therefore the use of synthetic or recombinant peptides, or agents that stimulate the endogenous production of antimicrobial peptides, provides an attractive alternative for conventional antibiotics.
Contents
Evolution of Antimicrobial Peptides: a View From the Cystine Chapel -- Innate immunity in plants: the role of antimicrobial peptides -- Antimicrobial peptides produced by microorganisms -- LL-37: an immunomodulatory antimicrobial host defence peptide -- Wound Repair and Antimicrobial Peptides -- WAPing out pathogens and disease in the mucosa-roles for SLPI and trappin-2 -- Histatins: multifunctional salivary antimicrobial peptides -- Structure-function relationships of antimicrobial chemokines -- Mechanisms and Significance of Bacterial Resistance to Human Cationic Antimicrobial Peptides -- Antimicrobial peptides and inflammatory bowel disease -- Cystic Fibrosis and Defective Airway Innate Immunity -- Antimicrobial peptides in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease -- Host defense peptides: Immune modulation and antimicrobial activity in vivo -- Helping the host induction of antimicrobial peptides as a novel therapeutic strategy against infections.

This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 2122, "Before Your HIV Test". HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. Unlike some other viruses, the human body cannot get rid of HIV. This means that once you have HIV, you will have it for life. AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) happens when HIV destroys your immune system, leading to serious and life-threatening infections and cancers. An HIV test only checks for HIV. It does not test for AIDS. This pamphlet explains how HIV is spread, the pros and cons of being tested for HIV, how an HIV test is done, and whether the test is accurate. Info is also provided on how you will get your test result and how long it will take, and what negative, positive, and indeterminate test results mean. Info on who has access to your test results is included.
