Assisted Reproductive Technology as a Transcutaneous Route for Bacterial Contamination of Ovarian Endometrioma with Coagulase-Negative Staphylococcus: Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Shimon Edelstein, Inbar Ben Shachar, Hila Ben-Amram, Seema Biswas, Naama Marcus,

Tubo-ovarian abscess may develop in women with endometrioma following assisted reproductive technology (ART). The infection, though rare, is typically late in onset and may present several months after the procedure, and in pregnancy-with the risks of abortion and premature labor. It is thought that transcutaneous oocyte retrieval during ART is ... Read more >>

Characteristics of hospitalised patients with influenza in 2015-2016 in northern Israel: three circulating strains and continued fear of 2009 A/H1N1.

Tomer Kalish, Dan Miron, Maya Azrad, Hagai Rechnitzer, Hila Ben-Amram, Daniel Glikman, Avi Peretz,

This study aimed to characterise children and adults diagnosed with influenza who were admitted to three medical centres in northern Israel in the winter of 2015-2016, a unique season due to infection with three types of influenza strains: A/H1N1, A/non-H1N1 and B. Data were collected retrospectively from medical records. Influenza ... Read more >>

Dysbiosis of microbiome and probiotic treatment in a genetic model of autism spectrum disorders.

Laure Tabouy, Dimitry Getselter, Oren Ziv, Marcela Karpuj, Timothée Tabouy, Iva Lukic, Rasha Maayouf, Nir Werbner, Hila Ben-Amram, Meital Nuriel-Ohayon, Omry Koren, Evan Elliott,

Recent studies have determined that the microbiome has direct effects on behavior, and may be dysregulated in neurodevelopmental conditions. Considering that neurodevelopmental conditions, such as autism, have a strong genetic etiology, it is necessary to understand if genes associated with neurodevelopmental disorders, such as Shank3, can influence the gut microbiome, ...

Development of a molecular method for testing the effectiveness of UV systems on-site.

Limor Nizri, Dalit Vaizel-Ohayon, Hila Ben-Amram, Yehonatan Sharaby, Malka Halpern, Hadas Mamane,

We established a molecular method for quantifying ultraviolet (UV) disinfection efficacy using total bacterial DNA in a water sample. To evaluate UV damage to the DNA, we developed the "DNA damage" factor, which is a novel cultivation-independent approach that reveals UV-exposure efficiency by applying a simple PCR amplification method. The ... Read more >>

Tuftsin-Phosphorylcholine Maintains Normal Gut Microbiota in Collagen Induced Arthritic Mice.

Hila Ben-Amram, Tomer Bashi, Nir Werbner, Hadar Neuman, Mati Fridkin, Miri Blank, Yehuda Shoenfeld, Omry Koren,

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is characterized by chronic autoinflammation of the joints, with a prevalence of about 1% in Western populations. Evidence in recent years has linked RA to changes in the gut microbiota (dysbiosis). Interestingly, helminths have been shown to have therapeutic activity in RA. Specifically, a glycoprotein containing phosphorylcholine ... Read more >>

Low-dose penicillin in early life induces long-term changes in murine gut microbiota, brain cytokines and behavior.

Sophie Leclercq, Firoz M Mian, Andrew M Stanisz, Laure B Bindels, Emmanuel Cambier, Hila Ben-Amram, Omry Koren, Paul Forsythe, John Bienenstock,

There is increasing concern about potential long-term effects of antibiotics on children's health. Epidemiological studies have revealed that early-life antibiotic exposure can increase the risk of developing immune and metabolic diseases, and rodent studies have shown that administration of high doses of antibiotics has long-term effects on brain neurochemistry and ...
