Background 背景

More than 500 000 neonatal deaths per year result from possible serious bacterial infections (pSBIs), but the causes are largely unknown. We investigated the incidence of community-acquired infections caused by specific organisms among neonates in south Asia.


Methods 方法

From 2011 to 2014, we identified babies through population-based pregnancy surveillance at five sites in Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan. Babies were visited at home by community health workers up to ten times from age 0 to 59 days. Illness meeting the WHO definition of pSBI and randomly selected healthy babies were referred to study physicians. The primary objective was to estimate proportions of specific infectious causes by blood culture and Custom TaqMan Array Cards molecular assay (Thermo Fisher, Bartlesville, OK, USA) of blood and respiratory samples.

从2011年至2014年,我们在缅甸、印度和巴基斯坦的5个中心通过基于人口的妊娠监测确定新生儿。社区卫生工作者在这些新生儿出生后0-59天内进行不超过10次的家访。由研究医生对满足WHO有关pSBI定义的患儿及随机选择的健康儿童进行诊治。主要目的在于通过血培养及血液和呼吸道标本的Custom TaqMan Array Cards分子分析确定的特殊感染病因的比例。

Findings 结果

6022 pSBI episodes were identified among 63 114 babies (95·4 per 1000 livebirths). Causes were attributed in 28% of episodes (16% bacterial and 12% viral). Mean incidence of bacterial infections was 13·2 (95% credible interval [CrI] 11·2–15·6) per 1000 livebirths and of viral infections was 10·1 (9·4–11·6) per 1000 livebirths. The leading pathogen was respiratory syncytial virus (5·4, 95% CrI 4·8–6·3 episodes per 1000 livebirths), followed by Ureaplasma spp (2·4, 1·6–3·2 episodes per 1000 livebirths). Among babies who died, causes were attributed to 46% of pSBI episodes, among which 92% were bacterial. 85 (83%) of 102 blood culture isolates were susceptible to penicillin, ampicillin, gentamicin, or a combination of these drugs.

在63114名新生儿中确定了6022次pSBI(每1000名活产新生儿95·4次)。大约28%的感染可确定病因(16%为细菌性,12%为病毒性)。细菌感染的平均发病率为每1000名活产新生儿 13·2 次(95%可信区间 [CrI] 11·2–15·6),病毒感染平均发病率为每 1000名活产新生儿 10·1 次 (9·4–11·6)。最常见的致病微生物为呼吸道合胞病毒(每1000名活产新生儿5·4次,95% CrI 4·8–6·3),其次为脲原体属(每1000名活产新生儿2·4次,1·6–3·2)。

Interpretation 结论

Non-attribution of a cause in a high proportion of patients suggests that a substantial proportion of pSBI episodes might not have been due to infection. The predominance of bacterial causes among babies who died, however, indicates that appropriate prevention measures and management could substantially affect neonatal mortality. Susceptibility of bacterial isolates to first-line antibiotics emphasises the need for prudent and limited use of newer-generation antibiotics. Furthermore, the predominance of atypical bacteria we found and high incidence of respiratory syncytial virus indicated that changes in management strategies for treatment and prevention are needed. Given the burden of disease, prevention of respiratory syncytial virus would have a notable effect on the overall health system and achievement of Sustainable Development Goal.
