3206.0 Infectious disease epidemiology

Monday, November 8, 2010: 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
This interesting session will focus on various issues related to the epidemiology of infectious disease. Presentations will include molecular epidemiological characterization of uropathogenic Escherichia coli, challenges in 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic mass vaccination clinic deployment, tuberculosis infection and health care among women in the Philippines, and the correlation of antibiotic exposure and extreme drug resistant Acinetobacter baumannii . Another presentation will discuss perinatal hepatitis B prevention practices in Texas.
Session Objectives: 1) Describe the clonality of uropathogenic E. coli isolated from patients with unrelated epidemiological background in relation to the global spread of certain strains; 2) Analyze the socioeconomic factors that influence the health care seeking behaviors for the treatment of TB among women in the Philippines; and 3) Explain the importance of studying collateral damage of host normal flora (caused by prolonged antibiotic exposure) leading to increased susceptibility towards drug resistant pathogens.
