Feb 27th, 2020 - Repeated inhalation of airborne conidia derived from the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus (Af) can lead to a severe eosinophil-dominated inflammatory condition of the lung termed allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA). ABPA affects about 5 million individuals worldwide and the mechanisms regulating lung pathology in ABPA are poorly understood. Here, we used a mouse model of ABPA to investig...

Feb 27th, 2020 - To achieve the ambitious goals of the WHO to eliminate hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection as a public health threat by 2030, innovative approaches are needed to improve the uptake for screening and treatment in people who inject drugs (PWID). Important barriers to care are difficult venous access and the two-step approach in current point-of care tests, using an HCV antibody screening test follo...

Feb 26th, 2020 - In connection with medicolegal autopsies peripheral blood (e.g. from a femoral vein) is the specimen of choice for toxicological analysis, although alternative specimens are also sometimes submitted, such as bile, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), vitreous humor (VH), bladder urine, pleural effusions and/or lung fluid. Ethanol concentrations were determined in duplicate in femoral blood and in various...

Feb 25th, 2020 - To assess differences in the diagnosis and management of Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) by European pediatric (PG) and adult gastroenterologists (AG), and their self-reported adherence to guidelines. A multiple-choice questionnaire gauged the diagnostic and management strategies of gastroenterologists treating children or adults in 14 European countries and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Quest...

Feb 25th, 2020 - Botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTs) are highly potent toxins responsible for a severe disease, called botulism. They are also efficient therapeutic tools with an increasing number of indications ranging from neuromuscular dysfunction to hypersecretion syndrome, pain release, depression as well as cosmetic application. BoNTs are known to mainly target the motor-neurons terminals and to induce flaccid ...

Feb 24th, 2020 - Neonatal jaundice (NNJ) is a frequent complication of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency. To estimate the prevalence of G6PD deficiency among neonates with jaundice and to assess mothers' perception towards G6PD and NNJ. A cross-sectional study was carried out on 487 ethnic Egyptian neonates with indirect hyperbilirubinaemia from June 2018 to July 2019. The collected data inclu...

Feb 20th, 2020 - The objective of this study was to comprehensively evaluate the pathology of acute and chronic femoral stenting in symptomatic atherosclerotic patients and to understand the causes of stent failure (SF) using multimodality imaging including micro-computed tomography. Although the pathology of coronary stenting has been well studied, the pathology of lower extremity femoral stenting remains poor...

Feb 20th, 2020 - Granulomatous skin diseases comprise an extensive group of pathologies whose diagnosis usually requires a histopathological examination. At this level, various types of granulomas can be distinguished, namely tuberculoid, sarcoid, necrobiotic, suppurative, xanthogranuloma, and foreign-body granulomas. This study aimed to determine the frequency and pattern of different granulomatous skin lesion...

Feb 17th, 2020 - Sex estimation of skeletal remains is of great importance in the fields of physical and forensic anthropology. Since skeletons are often incomplete, it is essential to estimate sex from as many skeletal remains as possible. The aim of this study was to establish new methods for estimating sex using the morphology of the sternum and the fifth to ninth ribs. We considered two conditions of skelet...

Feb 17th, 2020 - Although several reviews concerning diagnosis and treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) have been presented, there are few in regard to eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EGE). Fortunately, findings related to epidemiology, as well as diagnosis and treatment of this disease have recently been increasing. The rates of incidence of both EoE and EGE have been reported to be increasing. For accura...

Feb 12th, 2020 - To provide an overview of recent developments on dietary treatment of eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders (EGID) in children. Food antigens are the main triggers of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE); however, currently available allergy tests cannot reliably identify eliciting antigens. Studies evaluating the six-food empiric elimination diet (6FED-milk, wheat/gluten, egg, soy/legumes, nuts an...

Feb 12th, 2020 - The increased diffusion of the so-called novel psychoactive substances (NPS) and their continuous change in structure andconceivably activity has led to the need of a rapid screening method to detect their biological effects as early as possible after their appearance in the market. This problem is very felt in forensic pathology and toxicology, so the preclinical study is fundamental in the ap...
