  • Protective Effects of Immunization with Formalin Inactivated Oral Whole
           Cell Vaccine against Multidrug Resistant Citrobacter freundii in Murine
           Model

      Abstract: Citrobacter freundii, being an opportunistic pathogen is evolving as an important cause of nosocomial infection along with multidrug resistance, leading to a high mortality rate. The emerging range of high antibiotic resistance and the need to prevent infections has led to the development of alternative therapeutic molecules. Immune prophylaxis is considered a safe approach against the pathogen. This study was carried out to see the protective effectiveness of antibodies caused by oral formalin inactivated whole cell vaccine against multidrug resistant C. freundii. In this study, MDR C. freundii was separated from various clinical samples and used for the oral immunization of 9 Swiss albino mice. Seven days following immunization with the third dose of vaccine, the mice were challenged orally with live C. freundii and witnessed for 14 days. Blood from the tail was drawn 14 days after each booster, and lastly, cardiac puncture was done 14 days post challenge. Total antibodies that bind with antigen and functional antibodies having bactericidal activity were assessed by ELISA and serum bactericidal antibody (SBA) assay, respectively. In this study, 14 days after post challenge, 100% survival rates were seen among the immunized mice. ELISA showed all serum from the pre- and post-challenge immunizations had considerably greater optical density values of IgG in comparison to the control mice. On the other hand, SBA assay showed 100% bactericidal activity of the immunized mouse sera using 50% and 25% guinea pig complement following incubation for 3 hours at 1:10 serum dilution. In this study, formalin inactivated oral immunization with MDR C. freundii produced protective antibodies in Swiss albino mice. Safe and tolerable formalin inactivated oral whole cell vaccines may be the most effective and practical way of preventing enteric diseases.

  • Glanders: A Potential Bioterrorism Weapon Disease

    • Authors: Mahendra Pal; Kirubel Paulos Gutama
      Pages: 98 - 101
      Abstract: Glanders, also known as farcy, is an infectious bacterial zoonotic disease of solipeds caused by Burkholderia mallei. The only known natural reservoir of B. mallei is horses, donkeys, and mules. It has long been known as an equine and human disease, although it can also afflict felidae, small ruminants, camels, bears, and walruses. Despite the fact glanders that has been eradicated from most of the countries, it has regained its status as re-emerging disease due to recent outbreaks. Glanders is spread mostly by direct or indirect contact with infected horses, donkeys, and mules. Contact with diseased animals, contaminated fomites, tissues, or bacterial cultures can infect humans. Humans are accidental hosts, and disease is mainly caused by occupational exposure. Glanders is divided into three types of disease: nasal, pulmonary, and cutaneous, which can appear alone or in combination. It can be acute in nature, as observed in donkeys, and mules, or chronic in nature, as found in horses. The isolation and identification of B. mallei from clinical samples is the gold standard method for diagnosing glanders. The detection rate of glanders is increased when both serological and molecular testing approaches are used together. The mallein test is frequently used for field diagnosis in animals. Currently, no vaccine is available for humans or animals. Glanders could be used as a bioterrorism weapon. The presence of glanders in the absence of animal interaction, occupational exposure, and/or travel to an endemic location, such as Asia, Africa, or the Middle East, is presumed to be a bioterrorism occurrence. The disease's occurrence also results in international trade limitations. Early identification of disease in sensitive animals, strict quarantine measures, testing and safe destruction of contaminated carcasses, disinfection of infected premises, and raising knowledge about glanders and its zoonotic implications are all part of the prevention and management of this zoonosis.

  • Hand Hygiene Compliance among Healthcare Workers, Ministry of Health
           Hospitals, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the Year 2018

    • Authors: Imtithal J. AlSaihati; Bashaier A. Aljohar, Tabish Humayun, Zainah M. Alshahrani, Faiza A. AlFozan, Khalid Hamadan Alanezi

      Abstract: Background: Microorganisms are mostly transmitted through the hands of healthcare workers in any healthcare setting. This transmission can be from healthcare workers to the patients and from their surrounding environment. This ultimately leads to increased healthcare-associated infections and to the resistance against the antimicrobials and the cost of healthcare-associated infections increases accordingly. Objectives: To observe the practice of hand hygiene and to calculate the hand hygiene compliance rate among healthcare workers of Ministry of Health Hospitals in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Methods: The hand hygiene practice of healthcare workers in 318 Ministry of Health hospitals was observed by direct observation during the year 2018. This was done as a part of the National Hand Hygiene Program during the year 2018. The data was collected using the World Health Organization Hand Hygiene observation form. The compliance rate was calculated among different healthcare professionals, hospital departments and work shifts. Results: A total of 511,079 opportunities were observed over a period of one year. The overall hand hygiene compliance rate was found to be 70%. The compliance was found to be highest after the blood/body fluids exposure (85%), followed by after touching the patients (76%), followed by clean aseptic procedures (75%), after touching the patient’s surroundings (66%), and before touching the patients (64%). The overall hand hygiene compliance was found to be higher in nurses (73%) as compared to the doctors which was 67%. Conclusion: Our findings confirm that hand hygiene compliance is higher in the nurses as compared to the physicians and the rest of the health care workers in MOH health care settings. Initiatives such as improved monitoring and training healthcare facilities are needed to improve hand hygiene compliance in future.
