Abstract

HEPATITIS B VIRUS (HBV) IS TRANSMITTED VIA BLOOD OR SEXUAL CONTACT. PERSONS WITH CHRONIC HBV INFECTION ARE AT INCREASED RISK FOR CIRRHOSIS AND LIVER CANCER AND REQUIRE MEDICAL CARE. THIS REPORT UPDATES AND SUMMARIZES PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON IMMUNIZATION PRACTICES (ACIP) AND CDC REGARDING THE PREVENTION OF HBV INFECTION IN THE UNITED STATES. ACIP RECOMMENDS TESTING ALL PREGNANT WOMEN FOR HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIGEN (HBSAG), AND TESTING HBSAG-POSITIVE PREGNANT WOMEN FOR HEPATITIS B VIRUS DEOXYRIBONUCLEIC ACID (HBV DNA); ADMINISTRATION OF HEPB VACCINE AND HEPATITIS B IMMUNE GLOBULIN (HBIG) FOR INFANTS BORN TO HBV-INFECTED WOMEN WITHIN 12 HOURS OF BIRTH, FOLLOWED BY COMPLETION OF THE VACCINE SERIES AND POSTVACCINATION SEROLOGIC TESTING; UNIVERSAL HEPATITIS B VACCINATION WITHIN 24 HOURS OF BIRTH, FOLLOWED BY COMPLETION OF THE VACCINE SERIES; AND VACCINATION OF CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS AGED <19 YEARS WHO HAVE NOT BEEN VACCINATED PREVIOUSLY. ACIP RECOMMENDS VACCINATION OF ADULTS AT RISK FOR HBV INFECTION, INCLUDING UNIVERSAL VACCINATION OF ADULTS IN SETTINGS IN WHICH A HIGH PROPORTION HAVE RISK FACTORS FOR HBV INFECTION AND VACCINATION OF ADULTS REQUESTING PROTECTION FROM HBV WITHOUT ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF A SPECIFIC RISK FACTOR. THESE RECOMMENDATIONS ALSO PROVIDE CDC GUIDANCE FOR POSTEXPOSURE PROPHYLAXIS FOLLOWING OCCUPATIONAL AND OTHER EXPOSURES. THIS REPORT ALSO BRIEFLY SUMMARIZES PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF LIVER DISEASEST GUIDELINES FOR MATERNAL ANTIVIRAL THERAPY TO REDUCE PERINATAL HBV TRANSMISSION

Abstract

Guidelines for the management of patients with invasive candidiasis and mucosal candidiasis were prepared by an Expert Panel of the Infectious Diseases Society of America. These updated guidelines replace the previous guidelines published in the 15 January 2004 issue of Clinical Infectious Diseases and are intended for use by health care providers who care for patients who either have or are at risk of these infections. Since 2004, several new antifungal agents have become available, and several new studies have been published relating to the treatment of candidemia, other forms of invasive candidiasis, and mucosal disease, including oropharyngeal and esophageal candidiasis. There are also recent prospective data on the prevention of invasive candidiasis in high-risk neonates and adults and on the empiric treatment of suspected invasive candidiasis in adults. This new information is incorporated into this revised document.

El virus de la hepatitis B (HBV) se transmite a través de la sangre o el contacto sexual. Las personas con infección crónica por HBV tienen un mayor riesgo de cirrosis y cáncer de hígado y requieren atención médica.

Este informe actualiza y resume recomendaciones previamente publicadas del Comité Asesor sobre Prácticas de Inmunización (ACIP) y el CDC con respecto a la prevención de la infección por el HBV en los EEUU.

El ACIP recomienda realizar pruebas a todas las embarazadas para detectar el antígeno de superficie de la hepatitis B (HBsAg) y analizar las embarazadas con el HBsAg-positivo realizando test molecular para el ácido desoxirribonucleico del virus de la hepatitis B (DNA del HBV); administración de vacuna HepB e inmunoglobulina antihepatitis B (HBIG) para recién nacidos de mujeres infectadas por el HBV dentro de las 12 horas posteriores al nacimiento, seguido de la finalización de la serie de vacunas y las pruebas serológicas post-vacunación; vacunación universal contra la hepatitis B dentro de las 24 horas posteriores al nacimiento, seguida de la finalización de la serie de vacunas; y la vacunación de niños y adolescentes < 19 años que no han sido vacunados previamente.

ACIP recomienda la vacunación de adultos en riesgo de infección por HBV, incluida la vacunación universal de adultos en entornos en los que una gran proporción tiene factores de riesgo de infección por HBV y vacunación de adultos que solicitan protección contra el HBV sin reconocimiento de un factor de riesgo específico. Estas recomendaciones también proporcionan orientación de los CDC para la profilaxis después de la exposición después de ocupacional y otras exposiciones.

Este informe también resume brevemente la Asociación Americana para el Estudio de Enfermedades Hepáticas publicada previamente, las guías para la terapia antiviral materna para reducir la transmisión perinatal del HBV.

Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices for Use of a Hepatitis B Vaccine with a Novel Adjuvant.

MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep. 20 Abr 2018;67(15):455-458.

Schillie S, Harris A, Link-Gelles R, Romero J, y cols.

Hepatitis B (HepB) vaccination is the primary means of preventing infections and complications caused by hepatitis B virus (HBV). On February 21, 2018, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended Heplisav-B (HepB-CpG), a yeast-derived vaccine prepared with a novel adjuvant, administered as a 2-dose series (0, 1 month) for use in persons aged ≥18 years. The ACIP Hepatitis Vaccines Work Group conducted a systematic review of the evidence, including data from four randomized controlled trials assessing prevention of HBV infection and six randomized controlled trials assessing adverse events in adults. Seroprotective antibody to hepatitis B surface antigen (anti-HBs) levels were achieved in 90.0%–100.0% of subjects receiving HepB-CpG (Dynavax Technologies Corporation), compared with 70.5%–90.2% of subjects receiving Engerix-B (GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals). The benefits of protection with 2 doses administered over 1 month make HepB-CpG an important option for prevention of HBV…..

Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) Control and Prevention Toolkit, April 2014

2014-04 Enterobacterias Productoras de Carbaenemasas (EPC) – Herramientas para su Control y prevención 56 pags

Los expertos en control de infecciones y enfermedades infecciosas, así como aquellos preocupados por la seguridad del paciente y la mejora del rendimiento, pueden usar este conjunto de herramientas y desarrollar intervenciones para controlar Enterobacteriaceae resistentes a carbapenémicos (ERC). Las ERC son el resultado de una familia compleja de factores de resistencia transmitidos por plásmidos que circulan entre Enterobacteriaceae.

En los EEUU, la abrumadora mayoría de los casos de ERC son causados por el gen Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC) transportado por el plásmido que circula entre las Enterobacteriaceae, principalmente entre esta familia de Klebsiella pneumoniae. Los organismos productores de KPC se han propagado de forma epidémica en los EEUU y en todo el mundo entre los pacientes hospitalizados.
