“If the real radical finds that having long hair sets up psychological barriers to communication and organization, he cuts his hair.”

In Sum

Political action tends to be driven by one of two different motivations: expressing an identity, and winning concrete changes. It’s important to know the difference, and to strike a balance between the two.

Origins:

Resource Mobilization Theory of the 1970’s—Present

Sometimes activists will take an action without much thought to how others receive it, or what precisely the action will achieve. Many people participate in actions because it’s meaningful to them, or simply because it feels good to do the right thing. We call this the expressive part of an action. Expressive actions come from the heart and the gut — whether or not our “heads” calculate the specific outcome.

“Taking the street” during a march is a perfect example. Sure, it feels good to march un-permitted in the street. You and your comrades bravely disobey police orders and, all together, walk out into traffic. You can practically smell the group cohesion in the air. It’s intoxicating. It’s also usually inconsequential in terms of broader social movement objectives. Still, how many times have you heard someone say a march was “bad” simply because it stayed on the sidewalk? When someone says this, it may be because their goals are primarily expressive; affecting social change is of secondary importance.

Most trained organizers think on another level: regardless of the self-expressive value for those involved, we ask “what is this action actually achieving for our issue, cause, movement, or campaign?” We call this the instrumental value of an action.

Both aspects are important, and though a well-designed action can deliver on both simultaneously, expressive and instrumental often get pitted against one another. Many hard-nosed organizers focus exclusively on tangible impacts, forgetting that the self-expressive dimension of an action plays a critical role in affirming values and building group identity. On the other hand, many groups can carry out a whole string of expressive actions without ever winning anything. The danger here is clear: groups that don’t evaluate the success of their tactics in terms of their instrumental goals risk becoming narcissistic and self-referential. They can spiral into irrelevance because they aren’t tuned into how their action affects anyone outside of the group see PRINCIPLE: No one wants to watch a drum circle .

Laboratory Diagnosis of Gastritis

Abbreviation: RT, room temperature.

The patient ingests a cocktail containing C-labeled urea and 15–30 minutes later, a breath sample is obtained and analyzed for the presence of C-labeled CO as an indication of the presence of in the stomach.

Gram stain and culture of properly collected and transported biopsy specimens has a sensitivity of 95% as does histopathological examination, but is usually unavailable and considered inappropriate by some.

Agar-based or rapid urease tests have a slightly lower sensitivity of 90%–95% but offer the advantage of providing rapid results. They may be performed at the point of care or in the laboratory. When these tests are performed on gastric fluid, orogastric brush, or “string” specimens, they have lower sensitivity than when performed on biopsy specimens.

Gastrointestinal infections encompass a wide variety of symptoms and recognized infectious agents ( Table 27 ). The appropriate diagnostic approach to diarrheal illness is determined by the patient’s age and status, severity of disease, duration and type of illness, time of year, and geographic location. Fecal testing using culture or culture-independent methods is indicated for severe, bloody, febrile, dysenteric, nosocomial, or persistent diarrheal illnesses [ 138 ]. Communication with the laboratory is required to determine what organisms, methods, and screening parameters are included as part of the routine enteric pathogen culture or culture-independent method. Most laboratories will have the ability to culture for Salmonella , Shigella , and Campylobacter and test for Shiga toxin–producing Escherichia coli . Culture independent methods are often routinely available for Clostridium difficile and, although available, may not be routinely employed for other bacterial and viral causes of gastrointestinal infections. Stool culture often fails to detect the causative agent and, when necessary, culture-independent methods are recommended as adjunct methods. The specimen of choice is the diarrheal stool (ie, takes the shape of the container). Multiple stool specimens are rarely indicated for the detection of stool pathogens. In studies of adult patients who submitted >1 specimen, the enteric pathogen was detected in the first sample 87%–94% of the time, with the second specimen bringing the positive rate up to 98% [ 139 ]. In pediatric patients, the first specimen detects 98% of the enteric pathogens [ 140 ]. Thus, one sample for children and a second for selected adult patients may be considered. Rectal swabs are less sensitive than stool specimens when culture methods are employed and are not recommended for culture from adults, but in symptomatic pediatric patients, rectal swabs and stool culture are equivalent in the ability to detect fecal pathogens [ 141 , 142 ]. Rectal swabs have been shown to be as sensitive as stool specimens when culture independent methods are employed, although no tests are FDA-cleared for their use.

AMR Review

You are here

» Background

The discovery of antibiotics and their widespread availability revolutionised healthcare after the Second World War. They underpin many of the greatest medical advances of the 20th century. But bacteria and pathogens have always evolved to resist the new drugs that scientists invent to combat them. Resistance has increasingly become a problem in recent years because the pace at which we are discovering new antibiotics has slowed drastically, while antibiotic use, and therefore resistance, is rising.

Antimicrobial resistance is a natural process whereby microbes evolve to be able to resist the action of drugs, making them ineffective. Resistance arises from the selection pressure that antimicrobials put on populations of microbes; essentially selecting or allowing those microbes to survive and proliferate, typically through genetic changes. This leads to antibiotics becoming less effective over time and in many extreme cases, ultimately useless.

Although AMR is a naturally occurring process, today it is a threat because of two main reasons. The first is that use of antimicrobials has increased so much in the last few decades that microbes are exposed to a much larger number and greater concentration of antimicrobials increasing their chances of developing resistance. The second is that, worryingly, in some categories of antimicrobials (particularly antibiotics) there are very limited numbers of new drugs under development to replace those rendered ineffective by rising drug resistance. Essentially, the demand for new drugs has increased due to increasing resistance but the supply has dried up leaving us in a precarious position.

The reasons for this problem are at least partly economic and commercial. In the case of antibiotics, the predominance of cheap generics means that prevailing prices are low; unpredictable patterns of emerging resistance make future medical needs (and thus commercial opportunities) hard to predict ; and conservation measures necessary to limit the prescribing of antibiotics would relegate new products to last-line treatments used only when nothing else works. This all leads to antibiotics being seen as commercially unattractive. Economic interventions are thus needed to stimulate investment whilst protecting drugs from unnecessary use.

The global burden of infections resistant to existing antimicrobial medicines is now growing at an alarming pace. Drug-resistant infections are already responsible for more than half a million deaths globally each year. Early research commissioned by the Review suggests that if the world fails to act to control resistance, this toll will exceed 10 million each year by 2050 and have cost the world over 100 trillion USD in lost output.

Resistance is not an isolated phenomenon though the extent of resistance varies across different countries and regions of the world. This variation is often linked to the extent of use in these countries or regions. For instance areas with greater use of antimicrobials are associated with greater levels of resistance. But increasing international travel means that AMR has the capability of spreading globally including to countries that are controlling their antibiotics use effectively. This makes a strong case for international coordination on AMR as no country can protect itself from resistant bacteria unless the world takes action together.

Added to these issues, are the overuse and unnecessary use of antimicrobials for humans and animals which also promote the development and spread of resistance, either directly or through the environment.

Much of the misuse of antimicrobials is associated with the lack of rapid diagnostics that can pin-point the exact nature of the diseases causing microbe. Doctors and prescribers, unsure of the kind of disease affecting their human or animal patient but still needing to provide treatment to them, rely on empirical or treatment with broad-spectrum drugs that may or may not cure the patient but still expose microbes to a variety of drugs increasing the likelihood of resistance developing of these drugs.

Figures suggest that much of the use of antibiotics in the world is for animals rather than humans and that much of this is for promoting the growth of animals rather than treating sick animals. The development and spread of drug resistance in the environment is also often overlooked. Antimicrobials can also reach the environment through waste products from the manufacturing sector that do not adequately treat the waste products and through use and excretion by humans and animals.

The overuse of antimicrobials is also related to high rates of infection and the dependence on antimicrobials as curative treatments, reducing the focus afforded to prudent measures that might prevent an infection in the first place.

AMR is an issue that spans multiple areas and cannot be solved by any one solution. Nor is it an issue that any one country can address successfully by acting alone. Hence a multi-disciplined approach to solving the diverse issues and coordination among various countries is critical.

“By highlighting the vast financial and human costs that unchecked drug resistance will have, this important research underlines that this is not just a medical problem, but an economic and social one too.”- Dr Jeremy Farrar, Director of the Wellcome Trust

In routine procedures, pathogenic Entamoeba histolytica cannot be differentiated from nonpathogenic Entamoeba dispar using morphologic criteria, so the laboratory report may indicate E. histolytica/dispar [ 156 ]. Only an immunoassay or NAAT can differentiate these organisms.

Viral causes of gastroenteritis are often of short duration and self-limited. Viral shedding may persist after resolution of symptoms. Although included as part of some multiplex NAAT, testing is not routinely performed except in immunocompromised patients, infection control purposes, or outbreak investigations. In immunocompromised hosts, laboratory testing for CMV should be considered, using a quantitative NAAT performed on plasma. Of note, a negative NAAT does not rule out the possibility of CMV disease, and repeat testing may be required.

Proctitis is most commonly due to sexually transmitted agents, a result of anal–genital contact, although abscesses or perirectal wound infections may present with similar symptoms. One sample is usually sufficient for diagnosis ( Table 28 ).

This section is designed to optimize the activities of the microbiology laboratory to achieve the best approach for the identification of microorganisms associated with peritonitis and intraperitoneal abscesses, hepatic and splenic abscesses, pancreatitis, and biliary tract infection. As molecular analyses begin to be used to define the microbiome of the gastrointestinal and genitourinary tract, contemporary culture protocols will surely evolve to accommodate new, emerging information. The future use of gene amplification and sequencing for identification of microorganisms in these infections will likely show that for every organism currently identified by culture, there will be several times that number that cannot be cultivated using current technologies. To remain focused on contemporary methods currently available in the diagnostic microbiology laboratory, the tables outline the most likely agents of each entity ( Table 29 ) and how best to evaluate the situation with existing techniques ( Table 30 ).
