  Objectives:Identify distinguishing characteristics of subgroups of suicides classified according to different patterns of alcohol use prior to death.
Methods:Three groups of suicide decedents from a representative sample of 454 male suicides in China identified in a national psychological autopsy study were classified and compared: decedents with an alcohol use disorder during the year prior to death, those without an alcohol use disorder who used alcohol acutely at the time of suicide, and those with neither an alcohol use disorder nor acute use.
Results:Compared with suicides unrelated to alcohol, those with an alcohol use disorder were more likely to have made previous suicide attempts (adjusted OR, 95%CI = 1.94, 1.07–3.53), and suicides with acute alcohol use were less likely to have poor overall functioning in the month before death (0.36, 0.20–0.63).
Conclusions:The characteristics of male suicide decedents with an alcohol use disorder, using alcohol acutely but without an alcohol use disorder, and with no alcohol involvement are somewhat different, suggesting the potential value of tailored prevention strategies.

  An outbreak of brucellosis occurred in students on field practice at sheep farm in 2005 at Shihezi, Xinjiang Province, the North-West of China. Five of 7 (71.4%) students were seropositive, showing titers ≥1:160 IU mL-1 in STAT and diagnosed as acute brucellosis with physical examination. To characterize Brucella isolates from the outbreak, the research including face to face investigation, Brucella isolation, multiple locus VNTR-16 analysis (MLVA-16) and genome sequencing were carried out. The investigation showed 42.5% (1,293/3,042) of ewes are sero-positive with RBPT and almost half of ewes aborted. Although, no bacteria were isolated from student blood samples, five individual colonies were isolated from aborted sheep fetuses and were identified as B. melitensis biovar 3 by conventional microbiological tests. MLVA-16 typing indicated that the isolates were clustered in the East Mediterranean with genotype 42. They were similar to wild strains from Guangdong in 2008 and Inner Mongolia in 1994 and 1995. They were most close to strain bru0261 from Pakistan student studying in Germany. Genome sequence and phylogenomic tree showed that pathogen in this study was close to Chinese wild and vaccine strains such as B. melitensis M28, M5-90. Researchers first report pathogens isolated in 1980 and 2005 are genotype 42 containing novel MLVA-16 patterns (1-5-3-13-2-2-3-2-4-20-8-8-4-3-7-7) compared to that both in China and other countries.
