Biography:


Huang Wei Ling, born in Taiwan, raised and graduated in medicine in Brazil, specialist in infectious and parasitic diseases, a General Practitioner and Parenteral and Enteral Medical Nutrition Therapist. Once in charge of the Hospital Infection Control Service of the City of Franca’s General Hospital, she was responsible for the control of all prescribed antimicrobial medication and received an award for the best paper presented at the Brazilian Hospital Infection Control Congress in 1998. Since 1997, she has been presenting her work worldwide, working with the approach and treatment of all diseases of all systems of the human body in a holistic way, with treatment guided through the teachings of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Hippocrates.

Abstract:

Introduction: Nosocomial infections are a widespread problem around the world. Nowadays, only 1/3 of nosocomial infections can be prevented with the Infection Control Programs. The other 2/3 cannot be prevented. In the USA, 31 billions of dollars are spent in the treatment of nosocomial infections per year.  Purpose: The purpose of this study is to demonstrate how this 2/3 of nosocomial infections could be controlled with the use ancient medicines reasoning, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and Hippocrates theories. Another goal is to make evident the possible economy to healthcare when using these techniques and tools in the treatment of nosocomial infections. Methods: The methodology used was a review of studies, such as those presented by Hippocrates (“Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.”), as well as others from oriental medicines, which comprehend the disease as originated from three factors: external (exposure to cold, heat, humidity, wind and dryness), internal (emotional) and dietary. Findings: When comprehending the patient in a broader view, considering the energy imbalances of Yin, Yang, Qi, Blood and Heat retention and preventing invasion of external factors, it is possible to control and prevent better more nosocomial infections.  Conclusion: The 2/3 of not controlled nosocomial infections cannot be prevented because of the reasoning used in the treatment of infections in Western Medicine. When using ancient oriental medicines reasoning, a different thinking can be used. According to Einstein, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

Abstract:

A clonal population of hyper virulent Aeromonas hydrophila (vAh) has caused the loss of over 10 million kilograms of farmed catfish across the southeastern United States since 2009. Phylogenomic analyses suggest that U.S. catfish isolates emerged from the importation of Asian carp, with outbreaks of A. hydrophila in carp species documented in China since 1989. An ongoing worldwide survey of A. hydrophila isolates revealed that vAh strains have disseminated to multiple countries and can infect diverse fish hosts. We developed two strategies for vAh control, using either probiotic bacteria or an attenuated vaccine. Probiotic studies: We identified Bacillus spp. strains that have the ability to reduce fish mortality due to multiple bacterial pathogens, including vAh. The effect of probiotic-amended feed (106–107 CFU spores/g feed) over 10 or more weeks on catfish growth performance indicated that B. velezensis AP193 induced a mean 9-14% increase in growth compared to control fish and significantly reduced mortality (3%) when challenged with vAh compared to control fish (60% mortality).
Vaccine studies: Comparative genomic analysis of vAh strains from the US and China identified many genetic loci that are uniquely present in vAh strains, including a novel O-antigen biosynthesis gene cluster. Genetic knockouts in the gfc operon responsible for O antigen capsule assembly were found to attenuate vAh virulence, reduce biofilm formation and affect protein secretion. Furthermore, a gfcD mutant was observed to induce an adaptive immune response that protected catfish from challenge with wild-type vAh in aquaria and pond studies.
