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 - 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 - Metastatic cutaneous SCC carries a poor prognosis with five-year survival of 25%-57%. The aim of this study is to examine the outcomes following surgery with adjuvant therapy for management of metastatic cSCC in a UK-based population. This is a retrospective review of patients with metastatic cSCC of the head and neck who underwent primary surgery at a regional center during a six-year period. ...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - The feasibility of submandibular gland (SMG) preservation during neck dissection has been described. The aim of this study was to analyse the functional outcomes in patients undergoing SMG preservation during neck dissection for cT1-2N0 oral squamous cell carcinoma. Consecutive patients were divided into two groups based on the management of the SMG, and underwent a saliva flow test before surg...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - Despite advance in pharmacotherapy of lipid disorders, many heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia patients do not achieve a desirable lipid target to significantly reduce the risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. The aim of the present work is to evaluate the interaction between Lipoprotein apheresis (LA) and PCSK9i in a small FH cohort in which the guidelines therapeutic target ...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - We evaluated health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) receiving first-line chemoimmunotherapy in the GIBB single-arm, Phase II study of obinutuzumab plus bendamustine (BG). Patients received six 28-day cycles of BG and were followed for up to 27 months. HRQoL was assessed using the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quali...

To evaluate the impact of a complex karyotype on CBF AML prognosis, we included 24 patients with a median age of 56.4 years (23.2-83.3) and ...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - Until recently, patients with MDSs could receive HMAs via intravenous (IV) or subcutaneous (SC) administration. An oral HMA was recently approved as an alternative to IV/SC administration. This study assessed the impact of IV/SC HMA on MDS patients, and their experience of, challenges with, and views about oral MDS treatment. We conducted an online cross-sectional survey among adult MDS patient...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - Bing-Neel syndrome (BNS) is a rare syndrome that occurs in patients with Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia and is characterized by lymphoplasmacytic infiltration into the leptomeningeal tissue and/or the central nervous system. It represents an extramedullary manifestation which may translate into various neurological symptoms. Accurate diagnosis of BNS can be established via histologic sampling an...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - While changes in ventricular and extraventricular CSF spaces have been studied following shunt placement in patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus, regional changes in cortical volumes have not. These changes are important to better inform disease pathophysiology and evaluation for copathology. The purpose of this work is to investigate changes in ventricular and cortical volume...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - Posterior fossa type A (PFA) ependymomas have 2 molecular subgroups (PFA-1 and PFA-2) and 9 subtypes. Gene expression profiling suggests that PFA-1 and PFA-2 tumors have distinct developmental origins at different rostrocaudal levels of the brainstem. We, therefore, tested the hypothesis that PFA-1 and PFA-2 ependymomas have different anatomic MR imaging characteristics at presentation. Two neu...

The answers will differ for every person, because just as every situation is unique, so is every person different from every other person. But surely there must be some algorithm that will assist us in coming to the right answer. Unfortunately, no, for there is no right answer. There is on...

Oct 23rd, 2021 - Nescient helix-loop-helix 2 (NHLH2) is a hypothalamic transcription factor that controls the expression of prohormone convertase 1/3, therefore having an impact on the processing of proopiomelanocortin and thus on energy homeostasis. Studies have shown that knockout of Nhlh2 results in increased body mass, reduced physical activity and hypogonadism. In humans, a polymorphism of the NHLH2 gene i...
