Attitudes and Uptake of Seasonal Influenza Vaccination for Health Service Executive (HSE) Staff.

K I Quintyne, E Daly, E Brabazon, P Finnegan, P Kavanagh,

Aims Annual seasonal influenza (flu) vaccination is recommended for all healthcare workers (HCW) in the Health Service Executive (HSE) in Ireland. This is to reduce the risk of HCW contracting the flu and onward transmission to their patients. HCW uptake remains less than ideal, despite extensive seasonal influenza campaigns and vaccination ...

Under-reporting of notifiable infectious disease hospitalizations: significant improvements in the Irish context.

E D Brabazon, A Sheridan, P Finnegan, M W Carton, D Bedford,

Notification of infectious disease is essential for prompt public health action and epidemiological analysis. The aim of this study was to compare national hospitalization data to national notification data in order to assess if there was significant under-reporting of hospitalized notifiable infectious diseases in recent years in Ireland. All in-patient ... Read more >>

Diversity in prevalent PCR ribotypes of clinical strains of C. difficile.

E Brabazon, M Carton, R Sheehan, P Finnegan, D Bedford,

In 2009, a programme of Clostridium difficile ribotyping was established in the north east. The aim of this project was to profile circulating ribotypes in the region, In all, 50 notified north east Clostridium difficile cases were ribotyped. The majority of cases occurred in patients over 70 years and in ... Read more >>

Epidemiology and resistance patterns in urinary pathogens from long-term care facilities and GP populations.

E Brabazon, M Carton, G Dornikova, D Bedford,

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a major source of antimicrobial prescribing in the clinical setting and a potential reservoir for the emergence of resistant organisms. Although studies have been published on resistance rates for urinary pathogens from both hospital and general practitioner (GP) settings, there is little information from Long-Term ... Read more >>

General practice out-of-hours service in Ireland provides a new source of syndromic surveillance data on influenza.

E D Brabazon, M W Carton, C Murray, L Hederman, D Bedford,

The use of routinely available electronic sources of healthcare data on the spread of influenza has the potential to enhance current surveillance activities. This study aimed to develop a method for identifying influenza-related records from general practitioner(GP) out-of-hours (OOH) services in Ireland. Data from one such service were interrogated for ... Read more >>

The glycosylphosphatidylinositol-PLC in Trypanosoma brucei forms a linear array on the exterior of the flagellar membrane before and after activation.

Orla Hanrahan, Helena Webb, Robert O'Byrne, Elaine Brabazon, Achim Treumann, Jack D Sunter, Mark Carrington, H Paul Voorheis,

Bloodstream forms of Trypanosoma brucei contain a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C (GPI-PLC) that cleaves the GPI-anchor of the variable surface glycoprotein (VSG). Its location in trypanosomes has been controversial. Here, using confocal microscopy and surface labelling techniques, we show that the GPI-PLC is located exclusively in a linear array on the ...

Under-reporting of notifiable infectious disease hospitalizations in a health board region in Ireland: room for improvement?

E D Brabazon, A O'Farrell, C A Murray, M W Carton, P Finnegan,

Rapid notification of infectious diseases is essential for prompt public health action and for monitoring of these diseases in the Irish population at both a local and national level. Anecdotal evidence suggests, however, that the occurrence of notifiable infectious diseases is seriously underestimated. This study aims to assess the level ... Read more >>

Trends in viral meningitis hospitalisations and notifications in the North Eastern Health Board (1997 - 2001): a cause for concern?

Brabazon, O'Farrell, Murray, Finnegan,

This study aimed to compare trends in both hospital admissions and notifications of viral meningitis in the North Eastern Health Board (NEHB). Hospital admissions from 1997 to 2001, involving NEHB residents with an infectious disease diagnosis, were examined and viral meningitis cases were analyzed. During this period 265 NEHB residents ...

Cyclin-dependent kinase 8 is expressed both maternally and zygotically during zebrafish embryo development.

Elaine D Brabazon, Ronan T Bree, Micheal W Carton, Maura Grealy, Lucy Byrnes,

Cyclin-dependent kinase 8 (cdk8) regulates transcription by phosphorylating RNA polymerase II and TFIIH. The mechanism of zygotic transcription activation during vertebrate embryonic development is poorly understood. Here we describe the cloning and developmental expression pattern of zebrafish cdk8 mRNA. It is highly conserved, sharing 79% DNA and 95% amino acid ... Read more >>

Characterization of a novel alanine-rich protein located in surface microdomains in Trypanosoma brucei.

D P Nolan, D G Jackson, M J Biggs, E D Brabazon, A Pays, F Van Laethem, F Paturiaux-Hanocq, J F Elliott, H P Voorheis, E Pays,

Heterologous expression in COS cells followed by orientation-specific polymerase chain reaction to select and amplify cDNAs encoding surface proteins in Trypanosoma brucei resulted in the isolation of a cDNA ( approximately 1.4 kilobase) which encodes an acidic, alanine-rich polypeptide that is expressed only in bloodstream forms of the parasite and ...
