1. Is maternal plasma Zika virus (ZIKV) load associated with birth outcomes and maternal disease severity? by Pellerin S. from INSERM (France), assess a cohort of women from the 2016 Zika outbreak in the French West Indies concluding that higher plasma ZIKV load was associated with a more severe maternal ZIKV infection; however, no relationship was observed between viral load and neurological birth defects.
2. The oropharyngeal (OP) microbiome of hospitalised patients: A potential contributor to pneumonia risk, by Ashokan A from the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (Australia) assessed OP swabs from 63 patients and 79 controls, all of which underwent genomic DNA extraction and 16S rRNA sequencing, concluding that there were significant differences between the OP microbiome in hospitalized individuals compared with a healthy cohort. However, whether OP microbiota characteristics have a clinical utility in predicting lower respiratory tract infections in this population warrants investigation.

.@bdubrx sharing his work on translational PK/PD modeling of dalbavancin terminal PK and resistance development in S. aureus. The terminal t1/2 of dalba leading to conc above MIC90 for >12 wks led to resistance to VAN, DAP, and DALBA in the model @SIDPharm #ECCMID2019 pic.twitter.com/t5WcKiNSTG

The term ‘intermediate’ often lumped with ‘R’ , but it is something quite different. So we have to find a way to #communicate with clinicians about the right definiton of intermadiate.
