Common and usually harmless: otitis media in children

Berlin (dpa) - It is painful and uncomfortable: infants in the first year of life and young children aged under six often confronted with a middle ear infection. With proper treatment the symptoms are usually gone in a few days.
Middle ear infections are the most common reasons for attending a pediatric practice. "Almost every sick child to school at least once at the beginning of inflammation of the middle ear mucosa," says Prof. Reinhard Berner of the German Society for Child and Adolescent Medicine in Berlin. The ear pain is often preceded by an infection of the upper respiratory tract: "On the Eustachian tube, the Eustachian tube, bacteria or viruses get from the throat to the middle ear, causing inflammation."

The risk of otitis media is also enhanced by enlarged tonsils, allergies such as hay fever or passive smoking: "Smoking is more common in children of middle ear infections because their membranes are more susceptible to infections," says Berner. Drafts or cold do not - as often assumed - for the ear pain. "However, external factors, for example, increase cold feet, the susceptibility to infections in general."

Bacteria reveal cancer

The intestinal flora is proving to be a reliable indicator of cancer: a high concentration of bacteria of the genus Eubacterium ramulus indicates precursors of tumors.
to count bacteria in the intestinal tract, could be a gentle alternative to colonoscopy. Because the type and number of certain bacteria provide a clear indication of whether there is imminent danger or if Krebsentwarnung can be given. The U.S. researchers have discovered in the medical and microbiological study of 91 subjects.

Eubacterium ramulus or Ruminococcus?
Thus, the bacterium Eubacterium ramulus in the intestines of people with polyps is present in large numbers. These polyps are often a precursor to cancer tumors. The bacterium Ruminococcus, however, is to prove highly concentrated only in those with no polyps. They have a low risk of developing colon cancer. The exact determination of the composition of the individual intestinal flora could therefore be suitable as an alternative to colonoscopy, the researchers believe to Tyler Culpepper from the University of Florida.

Double-awakens dormant bacteria infection

together When two or more different pathogens in a body, the disease course are more difficult than just by a pathogen. Doctors refer to co-infection.
Thus, the outbreak of a latent tuberculosis for years, because the person has been infected with HIV. Meeting pneumonia bacteria on flu viruses, it may lead to treatment with certain antibiotics to destruction of lung tissue. The interaction of these pathogens and discuss implications for the treatment of this Wednesday to international experts in the Hamburg Bernhard-Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine.

Flu viruses call out special reactions in the lung tissue. U.S. scientist Jonathan A. McCullers, this has been studied in mice. "Infections with influenza A viruses, the tissue damage so that there colonize bacteria such as pneumococcus and multiply, which has pneumonia with excessive inflammatory responses result," said co-organizer Prof. Ulrich Schaible from the Research Center Borstel in advance of the meeting.

When work causes illness

Burn-out - the suffering of a modern society. Why the number of burned-growing.
The "Center for Disease Management" in Munich is - despite its somewhat odd name - for years a deserving institution: we study, for example, the question of why patients do not take as often as her pills, and promotes the rehabilitation of the mentally ill by "therapeutic Climbing" .

For the team led by senior consultant Werner Kissling company also offers training and advice on mental disorders in the workplace "to. "The suicide series in France, many began to roll," says Kissling's assistant Rosmarie Mendel. There, for example, had the head of France Télécom go after within two years had taken 35 of his subordinates life. Mendel adds, was after the death of the soccer goalkeeper Robert Enke, the interest in the work of the "Center" better than ever before. The highpoint was the week before a conference to which of them gathered 450 representatives of companies and authorities from all over Germany in Munich.

Cigarettes contaminated with bacteria

In commercially available cigarettes, researchers have sometimes hundreds of dangerous bacteria found. The question is, where the germs came from and if they can harm smokers.

As many a smoker should take the pleasure of inhaling: Cigarettes contain hundreds of different types of bacteria. The analysis shows the four major manufacturers - including products from Camel, Marlboro, Kool and Lucky Strike. Among the myriad germs cavort many pathogens.

"Commercially available cigarettes were jam-packed with bacteria - as we had expected," says study leader Amy Sapkota from the University of Maryland. "But we did not expect to find so many that cause human diseases." Together with our French colleagues analyzed the medical examiner environmental tobacco samples to the entire genetic material derived from bacteria. So far had been mostly content of the cigarettes tested for cancer-causing chemicals or other fine particles, the researchers explain in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives. "

Bacteria form alliances

Even among bacteria, there are selfless benefactor. They help whole groups of microbes that resist the attack of an antibiotic.

As bacteria are supporting each other, discovered by U.S. researchers in the study of a colony of Escherichia coli bacteria, which they finally kicked daily increasing amounts of an antibiotic. Surprisingly, only a few bacteria actually develop a resistance to the drug, the scientists observed. Nevertheless, the colony grew steadily more resistant to the drug. The trick: The resistant individuals produced a messenger, who helped their fellows, to activate various defense mechanisms against the lethal substance. Accordingly, the emergence of resistant bacterial colonies completely different than previously thought, write Henry Lee from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Boston and his colleagues in the journal Nature.

Health hazard for cold start?

It is a fundamental debate: Is it or should not you? Experts say that is safe for healthy people running down to minus 15 degrees. Mostly, anyway.
Zero temperatures are no reason to stop the training. On the contrary, scientists from the universities of Dortmund and Münster sent in advance of the Olympic Games in Beijing, 50 athletes in the Polarium: In the short term, they had to endure in cooling chambers minus 120 degrees - and then complete a quick run-time (at normal temperatures). After six months their performance had improved significantly improves blood redistribution and increased oxygen supply. Cold can support the fitness that is apparently quite.

Many runners ask yourself whether they should move their training rather not inside. Although three of four going to run his own statements, because they love the experience of nature, a Forsa survey shows commissioned by the Afrika Korps. In the winter, but the enthusiasm mixed with doubts whether to use harm their health with their sport rather than.

Subject so far have not provided sufficient prior information to prove a relationship between the disease and the vaccination clearly. In Finland, there were several cases of narcolepsy according to the H1N1 vaccine. As a result, the authorities recommended there, you no longer use one of vaccines.
