Abstract:
A prospective study of patients with pneumonia admitted to Groote Schuur Hospital took place over a one-year period in an attempt to assess the incidence of legionella pneumonia. Acute and convalescent serum samples were obtained from 113 patients. Eight patients (7,1%) showed a fourfold rise in antibody titre against Legionella pneumophila group 1 antigen by indirect immunofluorescent test (IFAT). The findings suggest that legionella pneumonia, although not common, should be considered in the aetiology of pneumonia at Groote Schuur Hospital. The results are presented and a review of the literature is undertaken.

Abstract:
The major sources of infection for Legionnaire's Disease, identified by study of outbreaks, are hot water systems and cooling towers. However, most cases are not part of outbreaks and, for these, the source of infection is rarely traced. The principal aim of this study was to help understand the source of non-outbreak infection by examining the epidemiology of the disease in Scotland. Of the recognized cases which met the study case-definition, 366 were ill between 1978 to 1986 giving a mean annual incidence rate of 7.9 per million. The annual incidence varied in Scotland (range 3.1 to 20.2) and within health boards. Geographical variations were demonstrated by health board, by city and within cities, particularly for non-travel infection. For example, the cumulative incidence rate per million for non-travel, non-outbreak disease in Greater Glasgow Health Board (GGHB) was 130 compared to 45 for the whole of Scotland, and 11, 33 and 50 in Tayside, Lanarkshire and Lothian Health Boards respectively. Of 16 postcode sectors with a high incidence of disease in Scotland, 14 were in GGHB. In GGHB, the residence of non-travel, non-outbreakcases (but not of travel-related ones) was clustered in central areas. Previously unrecognised clustering was also found in other health boards. These variations were not fully explained by differences in the population's exposure to diagnostic tests, as indicated by the number of serology tests requested by Scottish hospitals; the diagnostic service and approach of bacteriology laboratories; and the approach of hospital consultants to the diagnosis of Legionnaires' Disease. Differences in host susceptibility, as reflected by socio-economic status and the incidence of other respiratory disease, were small and did not explain the variation. In the City of Glasgow, many cooling towers were not maintained in accord with recommendations and posed a theoretical risk of infection. The location of residence of non-travel cases was associated with the location of premises with cooling towers, the incidence of non-travel Legionnaires' Disease being more than three times higher in areas of Glasgow within 0.5 kilometres of a cooling tower than in areas more than one kilometre away. The best explanation for these observations is that cooling towers were a major source of non-travel, non-outbreak infection. Hence, for the investigation and prevention of such infection, the emphasis should be on cooling tower maintenance. Close surveillance of apparently sporadic disease is recommended as the basis for disease control and future research.

Abstract:
A virulent strain of Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 was established in continuous culture under defined iron-replete conditions at pH 6.9. Iron-limitation and extremes of pH (6.0 and 7.8) influenced the growth and metabolism of L. pneumophila, as manifested by increased metabolic activity, impaired energy coupling, and altered metabolic fluxes. In particular, the physiological versatility of L. pneumophila was demonstrated by a significant decrease in the iron content of biomass (6-fold increase in Yiron), coupled with reduced metabolic efficiency (Y, on), in response to iron-limited growth. Iron limitation promoted the accumulation of significant intracellular reserves of poly- ß-hydroxybutyrate (16 % cell dry wt.), which supported long-term survival of L. pneumophila under starvation conditions. Expression of the important pathogenicity factor, the zinc metalloprotease, was regulated by iron availability. Common iron acquisition mechanisms, such as siderophores and transferrin receptors, were not elaborated by iron-limited cells. However, human transferrin was identified as a potential iron source for L. pneumophila, with the zinc metalloprotease mediating transferrin digestion and possibly iron acquisition. Iron-limitation and extremes of pH also influenced cellular morphology and the surface properties of L. pneumophila, promoting the formation of uniform cultures of short rod-shaped bacteria, with altered fatty acid, phospholipid and protein composition. In addition to morphological and physiological adaptation, iron limitation had a significant effect on the virulence of L. pneumophila. Iron-replete cells grown at pH 6.9 and 6.0 were highly virulent in a guinea pig model. However, the virulence of L. pneumophila was significantly attenuated (P < 0.05) in response to iron-limited growth. This phenomenon was reversible, and correlated with reduced phagocytosis and / or reduced intracellular survival following infection. Decreasing the pH of iron-limited cultures to 6.0 did not stimulate recovery of culture virulence. Therefore, this study clearly demonstrates that environmental stresses, including iron limitation and extremes of pH, play an important role in modulating the physiology and virulence of L. pneumophila, inducing the expression of distinct phenotypes differing in their ability to persist in nature and cause infection.
