  • A Field Evaluation of the Covid-19 Antigen Testing Regimen at a Primary
           Hospital in Ghana

      Abstract: Background: Accurate, reliable and rapid diagnostic tools for COVID-19 are essential for tackling the ongoing pandemic, especially in the developing world. This study aimed to assess the performance and viability of the testing regimen at a district-level hospital testing centre where both nasopharyngeal and oropharyngeal samples are taken simultaneously but the samples are tested separately. The nasopharyngeal samples are tested using the SD Biosensor Standard F Covid-19 FIA antigen test kit whiles RT-PCR is conducted on the oropharyngeal samples. Methods: A retrospective analysis was conducted on 314 paired samples taken from March to August 2021 whereby the dual testing scheme was applied. The field diagnostic performance of the Standard F Antigen test was compared with Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) results. The sensitivity, specificity and expected predictive values were then evaluated. The RT-PCR is the gold standard for Covid-19 testing. Results: A total of 314 matched Covid-19 Antigen Rapid Diagnostic Test (Ag-RDT) and RT-PCR samples were analysed retrospectively. The sensitivity and specificity of the Ag-RDT was 80.85% (95% Confidence interval of 66.74% – 90.85%) and 98.9% (95% Confidence interval of 96.74% – 99.77%) respectively. The overall accuracy was determined to be 96.2% with a Cohen’s Kappa score of 0.84 indicating an almost perfect agreement. Conclusion: The results of samples taken from the different anatomical sites have an almost perfect agreement. Therefore, the performance of the Standard F Covid-19 antigen test kit is optimal and the testing regimen at the hospital is adequate. It can thus be replicated at other testing sites. However, adequate training in the sampling procedure, storage, transport as well as stringent monitoring and supervision is required.

  • Current Perceptive on the Virulence Factors of Yersinia Enterocolitica: A
           Critical Review

    • Authors: Mahendra Pal; Adugna Girma Lema
      Pages: 7 - 10
      Abstract: Yersininia enterocolitica is an important food-borne pathogen that has become more common in recent years because of the fecal oral transmission by humans and animals. After ingesting the contaminated food, this neglected pathogen begins its pathogenic activity by invading the digestive tract of the host. Due to its growth habits, low quantities in samples and physical similarities with other bacteria, Y. enterocolitica remains a challenge for the researchers and food handlers. We presented latest information on the virulence factor in this review. All Yersinia enterocolitica have an infection strategy that relies on a virulence factor to allow them to enter, adhering to, and colonize the host while evading the host defenses and avoiding host cell clearance.

  • Safety and Efficacy Assessment of Bacteriophages Isolated from Kibera,
           Kenya Wastewater Plant, against Multidrug-Resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa
           Infection in BALB/c Mice

    • Authors: Meshack Tweya Omwega; John M. Maingi, Anthony Kebira Nyamache, Atunga Nyachieo
      Pages: 11 - 21
      Abstract: Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a pathogen of great clinical importance to both humans and animals. It causes pneumonia in cystic fibrosis patients, and it is responsible for the infections of blood and lungs during surgery. Increased antibiotic use has led to the emergence of multidrug-resistant strains of P. aeruginosa. Recently, phage therapy has attracted much attention as a promising alternative against the increasing antimicrobial resistance. This study determined the safety and efficacy of phage therapy against virulent P. aeruginosa in a murine model. Phage PaCIKb2 was isolated from sewage water. Morphological characterization by transmission electron microscope was done. We assessed the phages' antimicrobial effect in vitro and in biofilms, its growth kinetics, host ranges, temperature and pH stability. Therapeutic safety and efficacy were observed 24 hours post-infection with virulent P. aeruginosa in a murine model. Transmission Electron Microscopy revealed phage PaCIKb2 to belong to the family myoviridae. The phage was found to be high temperature tolerant (up to 50°C). It was active between pH ranges (5 and 11), had a latent period of 15 minutes with a burst size of 316 viral particles, and exhibited a narrow host range. After intravenous phage administration dose (2×109 PFU/ml) post-infection with virulent P. aeruginosa, the presence of phages in vivo and reduction of bacterial loads in mice was observed. A reduction in mice tissue inflammation suggested the effectiveness of phage PaCIKb2 phage therapy. This research gives data that supports the use of phage therapy against multidrug-resistant P. aeruginosa.
