2:23 AM | Autism, SSRIs, and Epidemiology 101
I can understand the eagerness with which science writers jump on stories that deal with new findings about autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). After all, the mystery surrounding the rapid increase in ASD rates over the past 20 years (see right) has made any ASD-related study that may offer some clues inherently interesting. Because people are anxiously awaiting some explanation of this medical enigma, it seems like science writers almost have an obligation to discuss new findings concerning the […]

3:13 AM | Epidemiology: Should farmers try to do more work near noon?
The CDC has a wealth of classroom information (case studies, discussion material) regarding epidemiology. No surprise there. It’s what they do. In my Microbiology class we’re starting a unit on epidemiology that students are working on in their free time either alone or in groups. We will talk about the project as questions come up, […]

5:12 PM | The ongoing debate about the definition of CKD in the elderly
In NDT this month, there is a nice series of articles outlining the ongoing debate about whether or not an eGFR<60 should be considered a disease, particularly in the elderly. The pro side was argued by Giuseppe Conte and the anti by Richard Glassock. Finally, there was a moderator's opinion written by Stein Hallan and Ron Gansevoort.Dr. Glassock makes the familiar argument that age-related decline in GFR is ubiquitous and should not be considered a disease (with the associated anxiety and […]

HIV antiretrovirals as drugs of abuse From around 2008, an unusual new street drug has been appearing in South Africa, containing HIV antiretroviral (ARV) efavirenz. Reports have described robberies of both clinics and HIV patients, often by those high on the drug intending to sell them on to the ‘cooks’. Vice magazine reporter Hamilton Morris has been investigating various drugs for the publication, and in this installment covered whoonga, or nyaope as […]

11:29 AM | Typing Method for Cryptosporidium Meleagridis
We recently developed a highly applicable method for typing of Cryptosporidium meleagridis isolates. C. meleagridis is the third most common species involved in human cryptosporidiosis, a dirrhoeal disease taking a major toll on global health. Molecular typing of Cryptosporidium is critical to understanding transmission and identifying outbreaks. Until now, no robust method has been available […]

4:28 AM | An Epidemiological Method: Using RFLP to Identify Strains of Pathogens
An excellent classroom resource for a case study in epidemiology is presented by the CDC. This study walks students through an outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 in Michigan. The purpose of this study is to provide student investigators with the opportunity to walk through the procedures and rationale behind investigating the etiology and to develop […]

1:50 AM | ‘Seed and Soil’: an epidemiological parable
I’ve been thinking about the ‘seed and soil’ metaphor used by turn of the century by physicians who accepted germ theory but only had environmental medicine to combat infections. All classically trained physicians, whether religious or not, would have been familiar with the biblical parable of the sower. It also works well as an epidemiological […]

5:55 PM | Crash Course in Blastocystis Subtyping
The intestinal micro-eukaryote Blastocystis continues to puzzle the world. Is it good, is it bad? Currently, we have no tools to differentiate colonisation from infection, but what we can do for now is to subtype Blastocystis isolates using simple molecular methods. Over at the Blastocystis Parasite Blog, I made an inventory of online tools (SOPs, […]

12:00 PM | New evidence, same conclusion: Tamiflu only modestly useful for influenza
Does Tamiflu have any meaningful effects on the prevention or treatment of influenza? Considering the drug’s been on the market for almost 15 years, and is widely used, you should expect this question has been answered after 15 flu seasons. Answering this question from a science-based perspective requires three steps: Consider prior probability, be systematic […]

 I often get questions related to Blastocystis epidemiology research, and many of these are 'how-to' questions.And as announced, I've chosen to dedicate a separate post listing some easy-to-use tools for subtyping Blastocystis from humans and animals.First, I want to guide your attention to the YouTube video that I made; it takes you through various important steps of subtyping and introduces you to the online database that can be used to call subtypes by BLASTing batches of fasta files - […]
