(12) To define more completely the period of fecal excretion of virus during hepatitis A virus infection, we studied 24 fecal samples from six children with clinical illness during an epidemic of type A hepatitis.
(13) One of the reasons for doing this study is to give a voice to women trapped in this epidemic,” said Dr Catherine Aiken, academic clinical lecturer in the department of obstetrics and gynaecology of the University of Cambridge, “and to bring to light that with all the virology, the vaccination and containment strategy and all the great things that people are doing, there is no voice for those women on the ground.” In a supplement to the study, the researchers have published some of the emails to Women on Web which reveal their fears.
(14) Patients with reactive arthritis, sacroiliitis, spondylitis or Reiter's syndrome following intestinal infection from Yersinia, Salmonella, Shigella or Campylobacter organisms have been reported from endemic areas and after epidemic dysenteries.

(16) And we owe [Hickox] better than that and all the people who do this work better than that.” The White House indicated that it was urgently reviewing the federal guidelines for returning healthcare workers, “recognising that these medical professionals’ selfless efforts to fight this disease on the front lines will be critical to bringing this epidemic under control, the only way to eliminate the risk of additional cases here at home”.
(17) The Authors report the results of IgM and IgA assays in blood of the umbilical cord of 1694 newborns during the period from October 1973 to July 1974 after a rubella epidemic occurred in Piedmont.
(18) The authors studied the pattern of occurrence of toxic oil syndrome, a previously undescribed disease that occurred in Spain in epidemic form in 1981, in two convents in Madrid.
(19) Analysis of the epidemic curve and intervals of onset of multiple cases within households suggested prolonged common source exposure rather than secondary person-to-person transmission.
(20) Galli said there were already about 200,000 hospitalisations of women who have undergone a clandestine termination every year, and a suspected 1 million illegal abortions before the epidemic.
(n.) A bursting forth; eruption; insurrection.
(1) During the study period four family outbreaks and seven recurrences of infection were observed.
(2) Some international coverage of the outbreak was accused of misinforming western readers.
(3) We present a mathematical model that is suitable to reconcile this apparent contradiction in the interpretation of the epidemiological data: the observed parallel time series for the spread of AIDS in groups with different risk of infection can be realized by computer simulation, if one assumes that the outbreak of full-blown AIDS only occurs if HIV and a certain infectious coagent (cofactor) CO are present.
(4) Last week the WHO said the outbreak had reached a critical point, and announced a $200m (£120m) emergency fund.
(5) Although the incidence of acute rheumatic fever has declined in the last decades, a few outbreaks have recently been reported.
(6) The effect of scrotal mange (Chorioptes bovis) on semen quality was assessed in a flock of rams during an outbreak of chorioptic mange and in rams with experimentally induced chorioptic mange.
(7) The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stood among the graves on 4 August last year in a moving ceremony to mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of war.
(8) The present study identifies and values the costs of a hospital based outbreak of poultry-borne salmonellosis.
(9) In a statement the Los Angeles County department of public health said: "Though legionella bacteria was identified in a water sample taken from the Playboy Mansion, this bacteria has not been determined as the source of the respiratory outbreak.
(10) However, focal outbreaks in small scale still occurred every year.
(11) The number of reported outbreaks increased from 20 in 1981 to 64 in 1988, 114 in 1989, 82 in 1990 and 52 in 1991 (January to June).
(12) This was achieved by means of postal questionnaires, coupled with the biochemical and serological examination of bacterial isolates from 91 outbreaks in poultry and from nine cases in other avian species.
(13) The authors studied 1,211 laboratory-confirmed, non-outbreak-related cases of giardiasis in Vermont residents reported through Vermont's laboratory-based active surveillance system between 1983 and 1986.
(14) If Abbott changes his formulation, he could risk an outbreak of ill-discipline within his own ranks, because these days the conservatives are more inclined to public outbreaks off-script than the moderates.
(15) Crises such as the Ebola outbreak in west Africa and mass displacement in Central African Republic, South Sudan and Syria triggered a 22% rise in humanitarian spending among the DAC’s 28 member countries, which spent $13bn in that area last year, the OECD said.
(16) He argues that whenever you have periods of crazy expansion of virtual credit, like today, you either have to have a safety valve of forgiveness, like in Mesopotamia where you wiped the tablets clean every seven years, or you have an outbreak of social violence so intense you rip society apart.
(17) A major outbreak in Kent in 2012 saw 2,000 trees felled.
(18) On the basis of the analysis of 69 outbreaks of hospital infections registered in the USSR in 1986-1989, as well as additional observations made by the authors, a number of factors which determined the present state of the problems concerning this kind of morbidity in the USSR were established: an insufficient level (in cases of enteric infections) or a low level (in cases of purulent septic infections) of etiological diagnosis; poor efficiency of the epidemiological investigation of outbreaks; defects in the work on the prophylactic detection of potential sources of infection among medical staff, parturient women or mothers taking care of their infants.
(19) The restriction enzyme patterns of the nine clinical isolates from the 1983 Massachusetts outbreak were identical to each other but differed from those of raw milk isolates recovered from sources supplying the pasteurizer.
(20) An isolated colony of red squirrels at Formby , Merseyside, were decimated by an outbreak of squirrelpox in 2008 , which saw the population crash by 85% to less than 200 squirrels.
