Listeriosis in Spain based on hospitalisation records, 1997 to 2015: need for greater awareness
Listeriosis is a food-borne disease of public health importance that has recently been involved in prolonged outbreaks. Despite its relevance, listeriosis is under-reported in many European countries.
We aimed to describe listeriosis epidemiology in Spain from 1997–2015.
We performed a retrospective study using the Spanish hospitalisation database. We calculated the mean number of hospitalisations per year and region. Pregnancy and neonatal-related listeriosis rates were computed. Relation between death and the presence of underlying health conditions was explored.
Between 1997–2015, 5,696 listeriosis hospitalisations occurred, showing a constantly increasing trend. Higher hospitalisation rates were located in the north of the country compared to southern regions. The age group ≥ 65 years old was the most represented (50%). Pregnant women and newborns accounted for 7% and 4% of hospitalisations, respectively. An underlying immunocompromising condition was present in 56.4% of patients: cancer (22.8%), diabetes mellitus (16.6%) and chronic liver disease (13.1%). Death occurred in 17% of patients, more frequently among those ≥ 65 years old (67.5%), with sepsis (39.9%) or with meningoencephalitis (19.2%).
Listeriosis is an emergent public health problem in Spain that calls for targeted action. Further prevention strategies are urgently needed, including food safety education and messaging for all at-risk groups.

Listeriosis outbreak likely due to contaminated liver pâté consumed in a tavern, Austria, December 2018
In late December 2018, an outbreak of listeriosis occurred after a group of 32 individuals celebrated in a tavern in Styria, Austria; traditional Austrian food (e.g. meat, meat products and cheese) was served. After the celebration, 11 individuals developed gastrointestinal symptoms, including one case with severe sepsis. Cases had consumed mixed platters with several meat products and pâtés originating from a local production facility (company X). Human, food and environmental samples taken from the tavern and company X were tested for L. monocytogenes. Whole genome sequence-based typing detected a novel L. monocytogenes strain of serotype IVb, sequence type 4 and CT7652 in 15 samples; 12 human, two food and one environmental sample from company X with an allelic difference of 0 to 1. Active case finding identified two further cases who had not visited the tavern but tested positive for the outbreak strain. In total, 13 cases (seven females and six males; age range: 4–84 years) were identified. Liver pâté produced by company X was identified as the likely source of the outbreak. Control measures were implemented and since the end of December 2018, no more cases were detected.

Prognostic Biomarker Test Identifies High-Risk Sepsis in Kids
A rapid blood assay accurately classifies risk according to severity and suggests higher-dose antibiotics should be an early option for patients with severe sepsis whose outlook is poor, new data show.

Shorter Antibiotic Course Effective for Sepsis, Study Finds
Shortening antibiotic treatment for sepsis from 14 to 7 days resulted in similar outcomes; experts say the findings may bring a paradigm shift in sepsis care, but more studies are needed.

Vital Signs: Epidemiology and Recent Trends in Methicillin-Resistant and in Methicillin-Susceptible Staphylococcus aureus Bloodstream Infections --- United States
Staphylococcus aureus is a major cause of community- and health care-associated infections, ranging from superficial skin and soft tissue infections (SSTI) to invasive infections, sepsis, and death. Methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) has long been recognized as a pathogen associated with health care settings; however, in the 1990s, community-associated MRSA infections, causing mostly SSTI, emerged in the United States.
