Oct 24th, 2021 - Key clinical point: Patients with psoriasis with the most severe disease were at highest risk of developing psoriatic arthritis (PsA), highlighting the need for regular screening for signs and symptoms of PsA. Major finding: Overall incidence of PsA in patients with mild, moderate, and severe psoriasis was 2.
Oct 24th, 2021 - Key clinical point: Evaluation with power Doppler ultrasound revealed a rapid and significant reduction of synovitis in patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) upon treatment with secukinumab. Major finding : At week 12, the adjusted mean change in the global European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) and the Outcome Measures in Rheumatoid Arthritis Clinical Trials (OMERACT) (EULAR-OMERACT) syn.
Oct 24th, 2021 - Key clinical point: Risk classification at acute myeloid leukemia (AML) diagnosis predicted clinical outcomes in patients with or without KMT2A-rearranged AML who underwent allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) in the first complete remission (CR1). Major finding: Transplanted patients with KMT2A-rearranged and adverse-risk AML had worse overall survival (hazard ratio [HR] 1.

Oct 24th, 2021 - Conventional MRI fails to detect regions of glioblastoma cell infiltration beyond the contrast-enhanced T1 solid tumor region, with infiltrating tumor cells often migrating along host blood vessels. MRI is capable of generating a range of image contrasts which are commonly assessed individually by qualitative visual inspection. It has long been hypothesized that better diagnoses could be achiev...
