bacteriologically confirmed non-tuberculous mycobacterial lymphadenitis in south east england: a recent increase in the number of cases.the annual numbers of cases of non-tuberculous mycobacterial lymphadenitis in south east england has increased over the period 1973 to 1993, most notably during the last few years. the most frequent cause is the mycobacterium avium complex, followed by m malmoense. the reason for the increase is unknown but it could be due to an increased awareness in mycobacterial disease, an external factor such as pollution, or both.19957618936
molecular epidemiology of mycobacterium avium complex isolated from patients with and without aids in brazil and england.mycobacterium avium complex (mac) is ubiquitous throughout the world. it is an opportunistic pathogen in aids patients but the number of cases in hiv negative patients is also increasing. the aim of this study was to determine whether patients were being infected with different mac strains or whether one strain was dominant. dna obtained from isolates in brazil and england were compared using pulsed field gel electrophoresis (pfge). strains from 22 brazilian patients clustered into 7 groups but ...199910459647
the epidemiology of atypical mycobacterial diseases in northern england: a space-time clustering and generalized linear modelling approach.the incidence of infection by mycobacteria, other than tubercle bacilli (mott) is increasing in the united kingdom, europe and the united states. these diseases increase morbidity and are an increasing public health concern. however, the epidemiology of disease due to these species is not well characterized. we used space-time clustering approaches and generalized linear modelling to investigate the potential predictors of disease in cases of infection by organisms of the mycobacterium avium com ...200717083748
a post-mortem study of respiratory disease in small mustelids in south-west england.stoat (mustela erminea) and weasel (mustela nivalis) populations in south-west england are declining whilst polecats (mustela putorius), absent for over a century, are increasing. little is known about the health status of these species nationally. this study aimed at investigating respiratory disease in specimens found dead in south-west england.201627052849
changes in aids-defining illnesses in a london clinic, describe the incidence of aids-defining illnesses within a single large clinic setting, to describe temporal changes over a 10-year period in the overall incidence and of individual aids-defining illnesses and to investigate the impact of hiv treatment regimen on the incidence of aids-defining illnesses.199910458621
the changing pattern of aids-defining illnesses with the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (haart)in a london quantify the progressive impact of combination antiretroviral therapy (art) on the incidence of aids-defining illnesses (adis) over a 9-year period.200111531320
isolation of mycobacteria from patients seropositive for the human immunodeficiency virus (hiv) in south east england: 1984-92.tuberculosis and other mycobacterial infections are well recognised complications of hiv infection and surveillance is thus required.19938256246
