Therefore, the association and predictors for scrub typhus induced cardiovascular disease shoul...

FluSAFE: Flu SMS Alerts to Freeze Exposure

Influenza infection results in an estimated 31 million outpatient visits, 55,000 to 974,200 hospitalizations, and 3,000 to 49,000 deaths. Membership in household in which someone else has influenza is the major risk factor for contracting influenza. The household secondary attack rate (SAR) is as high as 19% based on laboratory-confirmed influenza and 30% based on symptoms....

ECT With Ketamine Anesthesia vs High Intensity Ketamine With ECT Rescue for Treatment-Resistant Depression

To determine if an high intensity ketamine with ECT rescue (HIKER) approach for treatment resistant depression will: 1) reduce patient suffering by hastening disease remission, 2) have fewer side effects, 3) reduce the need for ECT, and 4) be preferred by most patients. Half of participants will be randomized to the HIKER arm and receive high intensity ketamine treatment fo...

Epidemiology and Pathophysiology of Post-Infectious Functional GI Disorders

Some people develop chronic abdominal pain with diarrhea or constipation after an episode of acute bacterial gastroenteritis. These symptoms can be consistent with post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and can last long after the acute infection is over. The exact reason why certain individuals develop these symptoms whereas others don't is not exactly clear. ...

Spinal Infection Management With Structural Allograft

Background. Bone infections can involve the vertebral column, intervertebral disc space, spinal canal and soft tissues, can generate neurological deficit in addition to the destruction of the bone that causes functional disability. Vertebral osteomyelitis is the most frequent, affecting 2 to 7 patients per 100,000 habitants. Management is bone debridement and bone reconstru...

Bronchial Infection in Patients With COPD and Frequent Exacerbations.

Hypothesis: 1. Innate immunity is altered in certain patients with COPD and frequent exacerbations, a fact that makes them more susceptible to being infected by bacteria. 2. The electronic nose is able to detect patterns of specific VOCs for exacerbations of infectious origin.

Remotely Programmed Deep Brain Stimulation of the Bilateral Habeluna for Treatment- Resistant Major Depression: An Open Label Pilot Trial

The habenula(Hb) is an epithalamic structure located at the center of the dorsal diencephalic conduction system, a pathway involved in linking forebrain to midbrain regions. An increasing number of studies indicates that that overactivity in the lateral habeluna(LHb) is present during depressed states, where it could drive the changes in midbrain activity linked to depressi...
