10,801 Possible Causes for Agents

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    Empirical data on AGE-causing agents is needed to gauge their clinical relevance and identify agent-specific targets for control.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Four of five ill volunteers had increases in serum antibody to Norwalk agent after both challenges.[nejm.org] Here we report the isolation of S. algae as the sole etiological agent from a patient suffering from acute gastroenteritis with bloody diarrhoea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    Antimicrobial agents for treating acute uncomplicated urinary tract infection in women Acute uncomplicated lower urinary tract infection (UTI), also know as cystitis, is characterised[doi.org] Alternative use of other first‐line agents including the fluoroquinolones and nitrofurantoin is increasing.[dx.doi.org] Recently, the development of resistance to antimicrobial agents has become an increasing threat to successful treatment of UTI.[dx.doi.org]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Decreased susceptibilities to other beta-lactam agents were observed in the penicillin-high level resistant strains.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The onset of symptoms occurs 2 to 3 days after exposure to the infectious agent. The illness usually lasts for 7 to 10 days.[symptoma.com] […] available evidence for the hypothesis that reduced resistance caused by psychological stress may influence the development of clinical disease in those exposed to an infectious agent[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Influenza

    BMJ Case Rep. 2018 Jun 4;2018. pii: bcr-2017-223974. doi: 10.1136/bcr-2017-223974. Author information 1 Internal Medicine, Monmouth Medical Center, Long Branch, New Jersey, USA. Abstract An 88-year-old woman presented to our emergency room with complaints of fever, coryza, barking cough and generalised fatigue for[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Skin Infection

    Abstract Microsphaeropsis olivacea is reported as the agent of a case of human skin infection in an otherwise healthy woman.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The standard chemotherapeutic approach to M. fortuitum infections involves the use of a combination of at least two antimicrobial agents to which the isolate is susceptible[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] For more serious, life-threatening infections, linezolid or parenteral agents such as vancomycin or daptomycin should be considered.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    Seventy three patients were tested for viral agents and 49 patients (67%) of them were detected. Mixed infection was found in 27%.[academicjournals.org] The majority of the studies contributing data on the epidemiology of the etiologic agents of ALRIs are from industrialized countries.[journals.plos.org] Viruses have been shown to be the causative agent in 36-85% of LRTIs among children [ 5 – 7 , 21 , 24 ].[bmcinfectdis.biomedcentral.com]

  • Drug-induced Fever

    Alterations of thermoregulation by anticholinergic agents, amphetamines including Ecstasy, and serotoninergic agents are all important causes of drug-induced (ever.[journals.lww.com] Antimicrobial agents were responsible for eight cases; other causes included antihypertensive and anticonvulsant drugs and allopurinol.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , for example anaesthetic agents in patients predisposed to malignant hyperthermia.[journals.lww.com]

  • Acute Bronchitis

    Mucolytic agents for chronic bronchitis or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Mucolytics are medicines taken orally that may loosen sputum, making it easier to cough it[doi.org] Two studies of newer agents were included in the 1999 update of this review.[dx.doi.org] How the intervention might work Mucolytics are agents which are believed to increase the expectoration of sputum by reducing its viscosity.[dx.doi.org]

  • Sinusitis

    The authors propose that some cases of culture-negative intracranial infections may be due to these infectious agents.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Oral voriconazole is effective and has significant advantages over more toxic agents administered intravenously. 2014 ARS-AAOA, LLC.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] B96 Other bacterial agents as the cause of d...

  • Insect Bite

    Lice may also serve as vectors for Borrelia recurrentis and Bartonella quintana, etiological agents of relapsing fever and trench fever, respectively.[symptoma.com] Other topical itch relievers include hydrocortisone (in Claritin Skin), pramoxine (a numbing agent in Polysporin Itch Relief), benzocaine (an anesthetic in Lanacane) and ammonia[besthealthmag.ca] They added that with ointments containing antiseptics, antihistamines, or numbing agents such as lidocaine and benzocaine only appeared to help "sometimes".[sciencealert.com]
