Laboratory-based surveillance in the molecular era: the TYPENED model, a joint data-sharing platform for clinical and public health laboratories

Hello. Sure, using toys/tools in a sexual manner and sharing them can, in some cases, also transmit diseases, but if I were you I wouldn’t use a joint or a vape for sex. I had heard of shingles, but had no idea that I was at higher risk for it. And what if you don’t have oral herpes, only ‘nasal herpes’? Assuming that clinical and public health laboratories may be able to use the same data for their own purposes when sequence-based testing and typing are used, we explored ways to develop a collaborative approach and a jointly owned database (TYPENED) in the Netherlands. It doesn’t survive long outside of the body which is one of the reasons people in the adult years don’t get it easily from sharing things like drinks. nah!

Note: The headache was a clue of what was to come. You’re more likely to get it if you kissed him or let him give you oral sex wile he has an out break of cold sores. One problem in the use of laboratory-based surveillance systems is that they require information that typically is collected at the clinical level and therefore is not focused on surveillance. Have you ever had a type specific IgG blood test to know your own status? Diseases don’t care how they are being transferred, just that they are transferred to a new host. Searing, nagging pain that I can’t ignore. If either of you all ready have it then you’re not likely to get it again.

Multiplex real-time PCR and sequence-based detection and typing techniques may be used for clinical diagnosis, to guide treatment (by, for example, resistance profiling, strain characterisation and typing), for hospital infection control and quality management (for cluster detection). They can infect the same locations as each other. Tran, Health is holistic.277 ViewsNot unless you do it in a sexual manner. October 19—Couldn’t sleep last night. Listen up. We anticipate increasing resistance from clinical laboratories to data requests for surveillance purposes because of these competing priorities. Really low.

Assuming that clinical and public health laboratories may be able to use the same data for their own purposes when sequence-based testing and typing are used, we explored ways to develop a collaborative approach and a jointly owned database in the Netherlands. October 20—Brunch with new friends. Sep 30, 2011 … Within this initiative, called TYPENED (TYPeer netwerk NEDerland [Typing network Netherlands]), two pilots were started in 2009: one for bacterial typing and one for viruses. Your girlfriend may allready have HSV-1 herself as about half the adult population has hsv-1 orally from our childhood years. These laboratories have all been long-term suppliers of surveillance information, by sending to RIVM isolates or clinical specimens as well as clinical information for a number of viruses such as influenza A virus, norovirus, enterovirus, rotavirus and hepatitis A, B and E viruses. There is a new pain along my upper thigh.

so my friend jus found out he has lip herpes..or mouth waterever its called…but anyways he hit me up if i wanted to go smoke at his … Selection of pilot pathogens An inventory was made of the currently used typing methods in the six clinical laboratories and the public health laboratory participating in VIRO-TYPENED using a structured online questionnaire. You have anxiety this is much for sure. The options provided were: (i) the exchange of protocols, control reagents and quality-control panels; (ii) a centralised reference data collection; (iii) a common database; and (iv) no collaboration considered necessary. GOD. I was told a have herpes 1 and 2 a few months ago. Molecular platform database In order to achieve efficiency and continuity, a generic database infrastructure for sharing of molecular typing data and metadata was developed at RIVM between 2008 and 2011.

Right now I would see a dermatologist on your penis issue and let them look. The database can be configured for a specific pathogen, at the request of a laboratory network, which also appoints a coordinator or curator. I feel like a science experiment or the Swamp Thing. Dec 16, 2010 … A minimal dataset can be defined by the network, based on the questions addressed, coupled with a feasibility assessment. This dataset minimally comprises time and place, but can be complemented with additional epidemiological or clinical metadata specific to the targeted organism. Besides online data entry forms, the platform provides a bulk upload option using Microsoft Excel and FASTA formats.

Is it discoid lupus lesions? I think we are all at risk here and any sharing of any items could lead to … The added value of a database like this – compared with the database of GenBank [9], in which laboratories all over the world share their sequences – is threefold. Firstly, the data are more comparable because of the agreed typing region and the standardised typing results and secondly, the data are shared before laboratories have decided to make them publicly available, for example, through GenBank. The third important advantage is the linked, standardised set of epidemiological and clinical data with each sequence, which allows in-depth analysis. NO RELIEF! Can you …

A minimum dataset was agreed, including age and sex of patient, type of sample from which the virus was detected, whether the patient was hospitalised, travel history (by country visited), clinical symptoms in broad categories (skin, neurological, respiratory, enteric). For each patient, at least one sequence of the major capsid protein VP1 gene has to be provided of the agreed genomic region (nucleotides 2,604–2,909 NC_001612, CVA16). In addition, samples that could not be typed as an enterovirus but were typed as poliovirus-like, were sent to the enterovirus section of the Center for Infectious Disease Control at RIVM, as part of the enterovirus surveillance programme in place, to document the absence of wild-type poliovirus circulation. It can’t be herpes! Take the following … Enterovirus diagnostics and sequencing Each laboratory used a laboratory-developed test, adapted from the protocol described by Nix et al. [10] (2006) for the detection of enteroviruses.

One laboratory used an additional protocol described by McWilliam Leitch et al. I can barely get out of the car. All laboratories participated in an external proficiency testing programme organised through Quality Control for Molecular Diagnostics (QCMD), Glasgow, United Kingdom, an International Organization of Standardization (ISO) 17043-accredited organisation. Amplification of the 5′ non-coding region of enterovirus was performed at the individual participating laboratory. Genotype assignment using a standardised sequence-based typing tool Upon entering of sequences into the database, an automated algorithm was run to assign the genotype. This tool has been validated against most currently known picornaviruses and has been shown to correlate highly with the serotype assignment [8]. My Ob-Gyn displays a disconcerting mix of fascination and confusion about my rash.

Some laboratories also typed parechoviruses (n=5), rhinoviruses (n=3), hepatitis E virus (n=3), norovirus (n=2), hepatitis A virus (n=2), cytomegalovirus (n=2), herpes simplex virus (HSV) (n=2), adenovirus (n=2), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) (n=3), as well as hepatitis B virus and hepatitis C virus for specific research or clinical study-related questions. A need for a more structured collaboration between the laboratories, possibly including the operation of a joint reference database, was indicated by the majority of respondents regarding influenza virus, parechovirus, rhinovirus and hepatitis B virus. For the less commonly used typing approaches, a need for collaboration was expressed for hepatitis viruses A, C and E. Given the consensus that a type of collaborative network would meet a need, a pilot TYPENED database was set up for enteroviruses. I look up at the cottage cheese ceiling for help: Dear God, why can’t I get an answer? Most of the sequences belonged to HEV-A (n=168; 25.8%) and B (n=466; 71.6%), whereas only a few belonged to HEV-C (n=6; 0.9%) and D (n=6; 0.9%). Following automatic typing of the sequences submitted to the TYPENED database, it appeared that some of the viruses that were enterovirus positive in the molecular diagnostic assay appeared to be a rhinovirus A (n=5; 0.8%), most probably due to the cross-reactivity of the primers used for detection.

In addition, three poliovirus sequences were identified within the HEV-C set: all three isolates were obtained from children from the former Netherlands Antilles (Curaçao and Sint Maarten), where oral polio vaccines were used. The laboratories that submitted the sequences received samples from laboratories all over the Netherlands. I consider spending the night at the Ob-Gyn’s office. For example, of the 48 CV-A9 sequences submitted, 43 were found in samples collected from May to August 2010 with a clear peak (n=38) in June and July. In addition,  five of the six EV-D68 sequences were found in samples collected from August to November 2010; 46 of the 65 E-7 sequences were found in samples collected from May to August 2011 and 51 of the 69 E-25 sequences were found in samples collected from August to December 2011. We have described a data-sharing concept that combines the capacities of clinical and public health laboratories in the Netherlands in a database to which all laboratories have equal and full access. After initial discussions to align expectations and develop a code of conduct, all laboratories were able to share a first set of historical data within two months.
Laboratory-based surveillance in the molecular era: the TYPENED model, a joint data-sharing platform for clinical and public health laboratories

Still can’t sit. We managed to get consensus on the typing protocol and a data sharing agreement between the central public health laboratory (RIVM), large university laboratories and some large general hospitals that are geographically dispersed, thus potentially enabling broad coverage of surveillance of viruses of common interest. Within the enterovirus pilot, all sequences generated in two years by six of the seven collaborating laboratories were shared. One pitfall of a consensus typing method may be that some viruses will be missed if they are not detected in the particular molecular test. This is of concern, given that the previously common practice of viral culture, which could serve as a safety net, is diminishing very rapidly. I have shingles!? Since RNA viruses diverge rapidly, there is a need to get updated full-length sequences, not only for epidemiological reasons but also to keep diagnostic assays based on molecular testing up to date.

At present, the availability of whole genome sequences is limited, but with next generation sequencing techniques rapidly coming within reach of academic and even clinical laboratories, this situation will change quickly. The same system is currently being set up for a number of other viruses  for which collaboration was valued according to the questionnaire – with parechovirus, norovirus and hepatitis E virus on the priority list [13-15]. Sequence-based characterisation is becoming more common within the larger diagnostic centres: the availability of sequence-based information will assist both the clinicians and diagnostic laboratories as well as the public health laboratories. I’m constantly sitting on ice packs. Furthermore, by using sequencing technologies, a more in-depth analysis of circulating strains can be carried out, as individual sequences can be analysed, instead of serotypes. Sequences have a much higher discriminatory power, as most sequences within one serotype will be different from each other, thus facilitating, for example, the tracing of transmission patterns. Sequence techniques are particularly valuable for viruses that are difficult to grow.

In an economic climate with shrinking budgets, it may prove difficult for facilities to perform sequencing for diagnostic and epidemiological purposes, although it is expected that large centres will continue to perform routine sequencing. “Emergency room?” he wonders…I shake my head. The harmonisation of typing protocols and sharing of data with a more extensive group of laboratories, or even cross-border centres, will be a next step. Bean NH, Martin SM.
