First Death of Eastern Equine Encephalitis Patient in USA
As State health officials say a 20-year-old Newton woman died on Friday [9 Sep 2005] of Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) in New Hampshire. This marks the 5th confirmed case of EEE in the state this year but the 1st time someone has died.

Health officials said the woman was taken to a Boston hospital on Sat 3 Sep 2005 with symptoms of the disease. An initial test was inconclusive,
according to Dr. Jose Montero, the state epidemiologist. A subsequent test confirmed yesterday [10 Sep 2005] that she had the disease, he said.

Montero says testing of mosquitoes in the Kingston-Newton-Plaistow area have made it clear the [virus] has a foothold there. `That is clearly an area where there`s a lot of endemic activity, and people clearly have to be
careful,` he said. 4 other confirmed cases of the disease in New Hampshire involved people in Londonderry, Goffstown, Manchester, and Concord.

All 4 were treated at area hospitals and have since been released.

State health officials continue to advise people to wear bug repellant along with long sleeves and long pants and to empty any standing water on
their property where mosquitoes could breed.

Statistically, about 1/3rd of patients who contract the illness die from it. 2 of 3 patients with the illness in Massachusetts have died this year [see: Eastern equine encephalitis, human - USA (MA) 20050908.2663].

Septic keratitis - associated bacteria and antibiotic susceptibilitymembers
Septic keratitis is occasionally seen in various species. The aim of this study was to evaluate the most common bacterial pathogens associated with septic keratitis in veterinary patients from Switzerland. The second objective was to analyze antibiotic susceptibility test results of the identified bacterial pathogens. The third objective was to evaluate potential breed predispositions to septic keratitis. A very interesting study with results not only important for Switzerland!
