T.; Eurich, D. T.; Weir, D. L.; Marrie, T. J.; Majumdar, S. R. // Clinical Infectious Diseases;Jul2014, Vol. 59 Issue 1, p74 

    The rates and risk factors for developing recurrent pneumonia remain poorly understood. Our population-based cohort study, conducted over a 5-year follow-up period, found a recurrence rate of 9%, with lack of functional independence being the most predictive factor for recurrence.Background. The...

    It is not known whether rainfall increases the risk of sporadic cases of Legionella pneumonia. We sought to test this hypothesis in a prospective observational cohort study of non-immunosuppressed adults hospitalized for community-acquired pneumonia (1995–2011). Cases with Legionella...

    Background: A better understanding of potentially modifiable predictors of in-hospital mortality and re-admission to the hospital following discharge may help to improve management of community-acquired pneumonia in older adults. We aimed to assess the associations of potentially modifiable...

    Background: Streptococcus pneumoniae is the chief cause of pneumonia in older adults, but it remains unclear whether use of the pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine alters the overall risk of community-acquired pneumonia. In a large population of older adults, we assessed the effectiveness of the...

    We conducted a hospital-based cohort study among adult patients with first-time Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteremia (SPB) from 2000 through 2008. Patients were identified in a population-based bacteremia database and followed up for mortality through the Danish Civil Registration System (CRS)....

    To determine whether doxycycline protects against development of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), we studied a cohort of adult inpatients who received at least one dose of ceftriaxone. Addition of doxycycline was associated with low risk of CDI.Background. Receipt of antibiotics is a major...

    Background: Infections may increase the risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE), but little is known about VTE risk associated with community-acquired bacteraemia (CAB). We examined the risk for VTE within one year of CAB in comparison to that in matched controls. Methods: We conducted a...

    Background: Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in older adults. Although diabetes mellitus is a risk factor for pneumonia, the clinical impact of blood glucose level at the time of admission is not clear. Our goal was to examine the association...
