Jul 3rd, 2013 - Lymphoma is the most common malignancy arising in the ocular adnexa, which includes conjunctiva, lachrymal gland, lachrymal sac, eyelids, orbit soft tissue, and extraocular muscles. Ocular adnexal lymphoma (OAL) accounts for 1%-2% of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and 5%-15% of extranodal lymphoma. Histology, stage, and primary localizations are the most important variables influencing the natural histor...

Feb 17th, 2019 - High infection rates of Leishmania donovani and L. tropica were detected in Phlebotomus spp. sand flies collected from refugee camps in Greece, indicating increased risk of infection among local populations. Detection and treatment of leishmaniasis, community education, and vector control are essential measures to prevent pathogen transmission and protect public health.

Jan 17th, 2019 - We compared the detection frequency of avian influenza H7 subtypes at live poultry markets in Guangdong Province, China, before and after the introduction of a bivalent H5/H7 vaccine in poultry. The vaccine was associated with a 92% reduction in H7 positivity rates among poultry and a 98% reduction in human H7N9 cases.

Jan 17th, 2019 - We developed an IgM-based ELISA that identifies the dengue virus serotype of recent infections. Dominant serotypes were detectable in 91.1% of samples from travelers and 86.5% of samples from residents of endemic regions; 97.1% corresponded to the serotype identified by PCR. This ELISA enables more accurate reporting of epidemiologic findings.

Jan 17th, 2019 - In September 2018, African swine fever in wild boars was detected in Belgium. We used African swine fever-infected spleen samples to perform a phylogenetic analysis of the virus. The causative strain belongs to genotype II, and its closest relatives are viruses previously isolated in Ukraine, Belarus, Estonia, and European Russia.

Jan 17th, 2019 - For >40 years, the British Royal Air Force has maintained an aeromedical evacuation facility, the Deployable Air Isolator Team (DAIT), to transport patients with possible or confirmed highly infectious diseases to the United Kingdom. Since 2012, the DAIT, a joint Department of Health and Ministry of Defence asset, has successfully transferred 1 case-patient with Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever,...

Dec 12th, 2018 - Acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) is a syndrome characterized by acute decompensation of previously diagnosed or undiagnosed liver disease with organ failure(s) with high short-term mortality. This study was conducted to report the outcomes of LDLT in ACLF and assess the survival benefit of liver transplantation in these patients. It was a retrospective study of 218 ACLF patients (based on ...

Dec 12th, 2018 - With most centers reporting excellent disease control following transoral surgery for human papillomavirus (HPV)-related oropharyngeal cancer, data are still lacking regarding management and outcomes in patients who relapse. We describe the treatment outcomes after curative intent therapy for locoregional and distant relapse following transoral surgery for HPV-related oropharyngeal squamous cel...

Dec 12th, 2018 - Liver disease in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is most commonly due to hepatitis C virus (HCV) and contributes to increased rates of mortality. Among the pre-dialysis population, the estimated prevalence of anti-HCV positivity is based on few, limited-size studies. In hemodialysis patients however, HCV remains very prevalent despite large declines in seropositivity rates in dialysi...

Dec 12th, 2018 - Hypoxia-inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1α) is expressed as an adaptive response to hypoxia, mediates angiogenesis through the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and can be induced by tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α). This study aimed to investigate the gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) and salivary HIF-1α, VEGF, and TNF-α levels in periodontal health and disease. A total of...

Dec 12th, 2018 - The present study emphasizes the role of engineered protein (gallic acid engineered gelatin (GEG)) on the closure of wound gaps of different shapes assessed under in vitro (Fibroblast cell line) and in vivo (rat) experimental models. Circular, Triangle, Rectangle and Square are the shapes selected for the study. Intending engineered protein (GEG) augments the cell migration in rectangle and tri...

Dec 12th, 2018 - SGLT2 inhibitors reduce body weight (BW) by creating a negative energy balance. Previous reports have suggested that this BW reduction is mainly loss of body fat and that ~20% of the reduction is lean mass. However, the effects of SGLT2 inhibitors on BW and body composition remain unclear. We examined these effects in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus treated with insulin. In this...

Dec 12th, 2018 - The aim of the study was to examine prevalence of dysphagia at the population level in head and neck cancer (HNC) survivors. Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results-Medicare claims among 16 194 patients with HNC (2002-2011) were analyzed to estimate 2-year prevalence of dysphagia, stricture, and aspiration pneumonia, and derive treatment- and site-specific estimates. Prevalence of dysphagia...

Dec 12th, 2018 - Impulse oscillometry (IOS) measures respiratory resistance and reactance during tidal breaths and is a convenient tool for evaluation of lung function. Respiratory resistance and reactance can be measured separately during inspiration and expiration (inspiratory-expiratory analysis). We investigated the differences in inspiratory-expiratory measurements obtained using IOS between children with ...

Dec 12th, 2018 - Papillary thyroid microcarcinomas (PTMCs) often demonstrate lateral lymph node (LN) metastasis. The purpose of this study was to assess whether the size of primary tumor should be considered in deciding lateral neck dissection extent. We conducted a retrospective comparison of patients with PTMC and papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) larger than 1 cm who received lateral LN dissection from 2009 ...
