This week Tick Boot Camp interviewed the dynamic mother daughter founders and operators of Eco Laboratory. Karen Weeks is an internationally recognized Lyme disease pioneer who has been at the forefront of Lyme research since the early 1980s. While supervising the Virology Department at the Department of Public Health for Massachusetts, Ms. Weeks worked directly with Dr. Allen Steere (the physician researcher recognized for detailing the clinical symptoms and naming Lyme disease). At that time, Ms. Weeks developed the Antibody Capture Immunoassay, which remains the most sensitive test available for Lyme disease. In 1990 she co-founded IMUGEN Inc, the premier laboratory for the diagnosis of Lyme disease, and many other tick-borne diseases. Ms. Weeks co-authored several publications pertaining to tick-borne diseases in The Journal of Infectious Diseases, The New England Journal of Medicine, and many others. Anna Roberts is following in her mother's large footsteps and manages Eco Laboratory. Because Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases are spreading at an alarming rate, Ms. Weeks decided to re-enter the testing arena after merging IMUGEN to a national testing company. She understood that quick diagnosis and treatment of tick-borne illnesses is vital to treating tick-borne pathogens. To support early intervention, she set up a testing system that quickly processes the tick and provides patients with accurate timely results. Today, Eco Laboratory offers 5 highly regarded tick testing panels including, a Lyme Disease only panel, a Blacklegged Deer Tick Panel, a Lone Star Tick Panel, an American Dog Tick Panel, and a Customized Tick Panel. If you would like to learn more about tick testing and the virtues of working with a laboratory built by a Lyme disease pioneer, then tune in now!

It is estimated that anywhere from 575,000 to 677,000 bloodstream infections occur annually in North America, with approximately 40,000 of those directly linked to patient mortality in the United States, making bloodstream infections the 11th most common cause of death in the US according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The detection of bloodstream infections and subsequent identification of the etiologic agent or agents is an essential role played by all clinical microbiology laboratories, day-in and day-out for routine patient care. So, today, we are going to dive into a recently published study in JCM, looking at organism-specific bloodstream infection prevalence rates and their individual mortality risks relative to patients with either negative blood cultures and in those for whom blood cultures were not ordered. Guests: - Dr. Nick Daneman - senior author on the manuscript, is a Clinical Scientists in the Division of Infectious Diseases at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre at the University of Toronto, and a Adjunct Physician at Public Health Ontario. - Dr. Kevin Brown is a Scientist at Public Health Ontario and Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto This episode of Editors in Conversation is brought to you by the Journal of Clinical Microbiology and hosted by JCM Editor in Chief, Alex McAdam and Dr. Elli Theel.

Over the past few weeks, countries around the world have reported an unexpected increase in the number of children with hepatitis. So far about 200 cases have been reported. More than half have come from the UK, but there have also been reports from Spain, Japan and the US, among others. Although this is still a very rare disease, it is severe, with 10% of affected children needing a liver transplant. So what might explain this unusual rise? Guardian science editor Ian Sample speaks to Prof Deirdre Kelly about the current theories as to what could be happening, and how concerned we should be.

But for this episode, we're sticking with COVID-19. In 2020, when the pandemic shut down much of the country, our very first guest on “Show Me the Science” was Steven J. Lawrence, MD, a professor of medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases. He also was our first guest of our second season of podcast episodes last year. And we've brought him back again, for year three. As the pandemic first gripped the St. Louis area, Lawrence was worried whether there would be adequate ventilators, ICU beds and medical staff to care for patients with COVID-19. A year later, in spring 2021, he was touting vaccines as a potential way out of the pandemic. Now, after having to deal with the delta and omicron variants of the virus, and with new worries about an even more infectious version of omicron, Lawrence has thoughts on moving forward as well as what people got right and wrong during the first two years of the pandemic. He also has some ideas regarding where we may be headed. The podcast, “Show Me the Science,” is produced by the Office of Medical Public Affairs at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

MetLife is commited to expanding opportunities for low-and moderate-income people around the world to create financial health solutions and build stronger communities. Children's Colorado is grateful for MetLife and their support of our community.   Late in 2021, the FDA approved the COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5-11, a milestone many parents were anxiously awaiting. The FDA and CDC signed off on the use of this vaccine after a historic clinical trial demonstrated it was both safe and effective. Children's Hospital Colorado had the privilege to advance the use of the COVID-19 vaccine by becoming the largest supersite for Pfizer's clinical trial. Today, we are going to hear from some of my colleagues who worked tirelessly and ultimately paved the way for the EUA for children ages 5-11 in November 2021.   Lalit Bajaj is the Chief Quality officer here at Children's Hospital Colorado, Erin Sandee is the Director of Research operations and Administration, and Eric Simoes is an Infectious Disease expert here at Children's and professor of pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

Even amid dropping infection numbers and generally lower disease severity, COVID-19 is still a special concern for pregnant women, those planning to become pregnant, and new mothers. Akila Subramaniam, MD—the only doctor in Alabama board-certified in both maternal-fetal medicine and genetics—summarizes why these women should get vaccinated. As she explains, two full years of data indicate that vaccination protects mother and child against severe illness from the disease (for which they are at heightened risk). Dr. Subramanian addresses the concerns her patients often have about vaccines in general. She also emphasizes the extra care pregnant women should take in masking and social distancing even as the general population may continue to follow more relaxed standards.
