Oct 13th, 2021 - Background: While Coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccines are highly effective, breakthrough infections are occurring. Booster vaccinations have recently received emergency use authorization (EUA) for certain populations but are restricted to homologous mRNA vaccines. We evaluated homologous and heterologous booster vaccination in persons who had received an EUA Covid-19 vaccine regimen.
Oct 23rd, 2021 - The FDA has approved a first-of-its kind continuous delivery system for anti-VEGF therapy for neovascular (wet) age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The Susvimo ocular implant continuously releases 100 mg/mL of ranibizumab directly to the retina over 6 months. Initial implantation and refill can be performed during an office visit with an ophthalmologist. In contrast, conventional intravitre...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - Although various motor manifestations can be seen in patients with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) disorders, such as hydrocephalus or intracranial hypotension, the clinical presentation with parkinsonism is not clearly elucidated. We searched the literature for studies describing the occurrence of parkinsonism in subjects with normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH), obstructive hydrocephalus, and intra...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - The objective of this study was to determine the effect of transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVr) on hospitalization rates by assessing pre- and postprocedural hospitalization patterns. TMVr has emerged as the treatment of choice for selected patients with mitral regurgitation, but the impact of these procedures on hospital utilization remains unclear. All patients who underwent TMVr in Ontar...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - Because of the anatomically close relationship between the cochlea and the vestibular organs, cochlear function disorders may be accompanied by vestibular disorders. This study aimed to evaluate vestibular functions in patients with idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss using VEMP, caloric test, and VNG test battery and its relation to prognosis. For this study, 42 patients aged 18-55 ye...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - Viral antigens are among the strongest elicitors of immune responses. A significant proportion of the human population already carries pre-existing immunity against several childhood viruses, which could potentially be leveraged to fight cancer. We sought to provide proof of concept in mouse models that a pre-existing measles virus (MeV) immunity can be redirected to inhibit tumor growth by dir...
