  • Climate change, emerging infections and blood donations
    • Authors: Cegolon LL; Heymann WC, Lange JH.
      Abstract: The article by Flaherty et al.1 provides interesting insights into issues relating to blood transfusions and emerging infectious diseases from those who travel to various locations in the world and return home. Much of the heightened concern related to these diseases can be traced to globalization and climate change. In many ways, both of these impacts are related in that changing environmental conditions are affecting movement and shifting trends in the world population.2,3

  • Use of pre-travel vaccine-preventable disease serology as a screening tool
           to identify patients in need of pre-travel vaccination: a retrospective
    • Authors: Turner D; McGuinness S, Cohen J, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractBackground: Vaccination is a safe and effective public health intervention that not only protects individual travellers from vaccine-preventable diseases (VPDs), but prevents them from becoming a source of disease in their destination and on their return. Obtaining an accurate vaccination history from travellers during a pre-travel review can be difficult; serology may be used to identify patients who are non-immune to specific diseases in order to guide vaccination requirements. Clinically relevant data about the usefulness of serology in this setting are lacking. We performed a retrospective audit of pre-travel VPD serology requested by practitioners of a busy community-based travel clinic.Methods: All serological results for measles, mumps, rubella, varicella zoster virus, hepatitis A and B requested over a 5-year period were extracted and analysed. Results were stratified by gender and year of birth and compared using Stata.Results: Four thousand four hundred and fifty-one serological assays from 1445 individual were assessed. Overall, 47% of patients tested had at least one negative serological result. High rates of seropositivity for measles, mumps and rubella were seen in those born prior to 1966 but >10% of travellers born after 1966 lacked serological evidence of protection against these diseases. Hepatitis A and B serological results revealed broadly lower rates of immunity in our community likely reflecting the absence of these vaccines from historical vaccine protocols.Conclusions: Serology can be a useful tool in the identification of non-immune travellers to enable targeted vaccination prior to travel. We recommend that travel health clinicians assess patients’ vaccination and infection histories, and strongly consider serology or vaccination where there is doubt about immunity. This will help protect the traveller and prevent importation of disease into destination or home communities.

  • Imported dengue fever in East London: a 6-year retrospective observational
    • Authors: Riddell A; Osman Eltahir Babiker Z.
      Abstract: AbstractBackground: Dengue fever (DF) is a frequently imported arthropod-borne infection in the United Kingdom but its broad range of clinical presentations makes it potentially unrecognized by clinicians.Methods: We conducted a 6-year retrospective case note review of laboratory confirmed DF patients in East London in the period from 1 January 2010 through 31 December 2015. Epidemiological, clinical and laboratory features of imported DF were described. Risk factors associated with viraemic DF presentations were assessed.Results: Forty-four patients (4 from primary care clinics and 40 from three acute hospitals) were confirmed to have DF through RNA and/or IgM detection. In total, 86.4% (38/44) had primary infection compared to 13.6% (6/44) with secondary infection. Viraemic DF presentations accounted for 59.1% (26/44) of cases. The median age was 34 years (IQR 25–43). Most patients were males (68.2%, 30/44) and of non-white ethnicity (81.8%, 36/44). South Asia was the most frequent travel destination (52.3%, 23/44) followed by Southeast Asia (20.5%, 9/44). July–September was the peak season of presentation (43.2%, 19/44). The median interval between arrival in the UK and laboratory testing was 7 days (IQR 4–13). Arriving from abroad ≤ 7 days before molecular testing (age-adjusted odds ratios [OR] 16.98, 95% CI 2.43–118.75, P = 0.004) and travel to South or Southeast Asia regions (age-adjusted OR 4.41, 95% CI 1.07–18.21, P = 0.040) were associated with detectable viraemia at presentation. Only one DF patient met the WHO severity criteria. HIV serostatus was determined in 61.4% (27/44) of cases.Conclusion: Clinicians need to improve DF recognition as well as rates of HIV testing in tropical travellers. Region of travel and time since arrival from DF endemic settings may help clinicians optimize requests for molecular testing. Further research on the clinical and public health aspects of imported DF is needed.

  • Infection burden among medical events onboard cargo ships: a four-year
    • Authors: Marimoutou C; Tufo D, Chaudet H, et al.
      Abstract: AbstractBackground. Cargo ships are medically isolated, yet neglected environments. We aimed to know about medical events onboard cargo ships.Methods. We reviewed all the medical events onboard a large commercial 471-cargo ship company for 4 years. Medical events were recorded within 20 categories as routinely used by Medical Maritime Consulting Centers, using a 4-level medical gravity score. The χ2 test and logistic regression and correspondence analyses were used for the analysis of qualitative variables.Results. Excluding wounds and burns, a total of 322 illness events were notified by onboard health officers for 471 ships totalizing 46 navigation/months. 250 non-infectious events and 72 cases of infection yielded an incidence of 7.75 medical events for 1000 person-years. Infections comprised 25 digestive tract infections, 17 skin infections, 8 urinary tract infections, 5 dental infections, 4 isolated fevers, 3 Ear-Nose-Throat and respiratory tract infections, 2 ocular infections, myalgia and orchitis and 1 case of mediastinal infection. The mean age for sailors diagnosed with infection (37.7 ± 10.5 years) was significantly younger than the mean age of sailors diagnosed with non-infectious disease (40.8 ± 11.2 years) (P = 0.04). In affected sailors, the proportion of death and hospitalization among infectious disease cases (26/69, 37.7%) was significantly higher than the proportion of death and hospitalization for non-infectious disease cases (48/242, 19.8%) (P = 0.02). The correspondence analysis showed that the routes may be classified according to two main independent risks, digestive infections and skin infections. We observed a statistically significant correlation between the severity of medical events and the maritime route “North Europe-OI-Australia-India-North Europe”.Conclusions. These data illustrate a previously underreported variability of the medical risks in various maritime routes; and help promoting targeted medical interventions including the implementation of onboard point-of-care laboratories, to further increase the rapidity of the diagnosis and the medical management onboard cargo ships.

  • Bordetella pertussis infections in travelers: data from the GeoSentinel
           global network
    • Authors: Barbosa F; Barnett ED, Gautret P, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Pertussis is a highly contagious, vaccine-preventable respiratory infection that is endemic worldwide. There are limited data regarding the occurrence of pertussis in travelers. The objective of this study is to identify travel-related pertussis cases reported to the GeoSentinel Surveillance Network.Methods: This is a descriptive, retrospective analysis of GeoSentinel records from 25 travel/tropical medicine clinics in 16 countries. Frequencies of demographic and travel-related characteristics and symptoms of 74 cases of pertussis in travelers and new immigrants from 1999 to 2015 were analysed.Results: There were 74 probable and confirmed cases of pertussis in the GeoSentinel database; median age was 44 years, and 38 (51%) patients were female. Tourism was the most common reason for travel (41; 55%). Country of exposure was determined in 66 cases with travelers returning from India and China constituting the highest number of cases (10 cases each; 15% each). Seventy of 74 (95%) patients had respiratory symptoms, while fatigue and fever were reported by 21 (28%) and 20 (27%), respectively. Immunization status against pertussis was unknown. Most cases were reported after 2005 (69; 93%).Conclusions: Our study describes 74 cases of pertussis acquired during travel and reported to the GeoSentinel Network. Pertussis should be considered in returned travelers who present with respiratory symptoms. Surveillance and detection of imported cases are important to prevent onward transmission in the community. The pre-travel consultation provides an opportunity to verify immunization status and provide routine vaccinations such as pertussis.

  • Medical evacuations in the oil and gas industry: a retrospective review
           with implications for future evacuation and preventative strategies †
    • Authors: Toner S; Andrée Wiltens DH, Berg J, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Businesses increasingly conduct operations in remote areas where medical evacuation [Medevac(s)] carries more risk. Royal Dutch Shell developed a remote healthcare strategy whereby enhanced remote healthcare is made available to the patient through use of telemedicine and telemetry. To evaluate that strategy, a review of Medevacs of Shell International employees [i.e. expatriate employees (EEs) and frequent business travellers (FBTs)] was undertaken.Method: A retrospective review of Medevac data (period 2008–12) that were similar in operational constraints and population profile was conducted. Employee records and Human Resource data were used as a denominator for the population. Analogous Medevac data from specific locations were used to compare patterns of diagnoses.Results: A total of 130 Medevacs were conducted during the study period, resulting in a Medevac rate of 4 per 1000 of population with 16 per 1000 for females and 3 per 1000 for males, respectively. The youngest and oldest age-groups required Medevacs in larger proportions. The evacuation rates were highest for countries classified as ‘high’ or ‘extreme risk’. The most frequent diagnostic categories for Medevac were: trauma, digestive, musculoskeletal, cardiac and neurological. In 9% of the total, a strong to moderate link could be made between the pre-existing medical condition and diagnosis leading to Medevac.Conclusion: This study uniquely provides a benchmark Medevac rate (4 per 1000) for EEs and FBTs and demonstrates that Medevac rates are highest from countries identified as ‘high risk’; there is an age and gender bias, and pre-existing medical conditions are of notable relevance. It confirms a change in the trend from injury to illness as a reason for Medevac in the oil and gas industry and demonstrates that diagnoses of a digestive and traumatic nature are the most frequent. A holistic approach to health (as opposed to a predominant focus on fitness to work), more attention to female travellers, and the application of modern technology and communication will reduce the need for Medevacs.

  • Clostridium difficile infection in returning travellers
    • Authors: Michal Stevens AA; Esposito DH, Stoney RJ, et al.
      Abstract: Background There is increasing recognition of the contribution of community-acquired cases to the global burden of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI). The epidemiology of CDI among international travellers is poorly understood, and factors associated with international travel, such as antibiotic use and changes in gut microbiota, could potentially put travellers at higher risk.Methods We summarized demographic, travel-associated and geographic characteristics of travellers with CDI in the GeoSentinel database from 1997 to 2015. We also surveyed GeoSentinel sites to compare various testing indications, approaches, and diagnostic modalities.Results We identified 260 GeoSentinel records, including 187 that satisfied criteria for analysis (confirmed cases in non-immigrant travellers aged >2 years, seen

  • Strengthening health security at the Hajj mass gatherings: characteristics
           of the infectious diseases surveillance systems operational during the
           2015 Hajj
    • Authors: Alotaibi BM; Yezli S, Bin Saeed AA, et al.
      Abstract: Background: Hajj is one of the largest and the most ethnically and culturally diverse mass gatherings worldwide. The use of appropriate surveillance systems ensures timely information management for effective planning and response to infectious diseases threats during the pilgrimage. The literature describes infectious diseases prevention and control strategies for Hajj but with limited information on the operations and characteristics of the existing Hajj infectious diseases surveillance systems.Method: We reviewed documents, including guidelines and reports from the Saudi Ministry of Health’s database, to describe the characteristics of the infectious diseases surveillance systems that were operational during the 2015 Hajj, highlighting best practices and gaps and proposing strategies for strengthening and improvement. Using Pubmed and Embase online search engines and a combination of search terms including, ‘mass gatherings’ ‘Olympics’ ‘surveillance’ ‘Hajj’ ‘health security’, we explored the existing literature and highlighted some lessons learnt from other international mass gatherings.Results: A regular indicator-based infectious disease surveillance system generates routine reports from health facilities within the Kingdom to the regional and central public health directorates all year round. During Hajj, enhanced indicator-based notifiable diseases surveillance systems complement the existing surveillance tool to ensure timely reporting of event information for appropriate action by public health officials.Conclusion: There is need to integrate the existing Hajj surveillance data management systems and to implement syndromic surveillance as an early warning system for infectious disease control during Hajj. International engagement is important to strengthen Hajj infectious diseases surveillance and to prevent disease transmission and globalization of infectious agents which could undermine global health security.
