Nosocomial Infections: Challenges in Vaccine Development

Wednesday, January 27, 2010 |
The New York Academy of Sciences


Nearly 100,000 patients die in the United States every year from infections acquired while in the hospital. The high incidence, increased severity, and burgeoning costs of these infections to the health care system have resulted in a growing interest in new vaccines and other preventative measures. Common bacterial pathogens in the clinical setting include Staphylococci, Enterococci, Clostridia, and Pseudomonas. Clinicians also see a high incidence of resistance to antibiotics, pathogenicity islands, and toxins in these settings. In particular, the spread of community-associated, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) has increased concerns for public safety.

This meeting will focus on current knowledge about vaccines for nosocomial infections, and specifically on the pathogenesis of select nosocomial bacteria. Talks will discuss host immunology, as well as lessons learned from vaccines already in use and those under development.

  • : La confédération des Iflisen Umellil
  • : Un des objectifs est de reconstituer la grande confédération qui regroupait les 14 aarchs des Iflisen Umellil avant la colonisation française. Le but est de rétablir les liens interrompus et de promouvoir la solidarité inter-arche. Nous visons également à consolider les liens entre la diaspora et leur région d'origine. Réecrire l'histoire des Iflisen et préserver leur patrimoine matériel et immatériel .
