The role of mixed infections with different hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes in viral persistence, treatment effects, and tissue tropism is unclear. Next-generation sequencing (NGS), which is suitable for analysis of large, genetically diverse populations offers unparalleled advantages for the study of mixed infections. The aim of the study was to determine, using two different deep sequencing strategies (pyrosequencing - 454 Life Sciences/Roche and reversible terminator sequencing-by-synthesis by Illumina...
The battle to contain and ultimately defeat the Ebola epidemic of 2014-2015 has been vividly described.(1)-(3) Caught off guard from the start and hindered by myriad coordination, communication, and other problems, a combination of local and international teams fought back with determination, courage, and eventually the deployment of substantial resources to stem the contagion and save lives. Yet more than 11,000 people died, and local economies were brought to a halt. The battle was won, but at immense cos...
Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a rare and progressive disease that mainly affects the pulmonary arterioles (precapillary), regardless of the triggering aetiology. The prevalence of pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary arterial hypertension in Spain is estimated at 19.2 and 16 cases per million inhabitants, respectively. The diagnosis of pulmonary arterial hypertension is based on haemodynamic criteria (mean pulmonary artery pressure ≥25mmHg, pulmonary capillary wedge pressure ≤15mmHg and pulmonary v...
Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness worldwide. Normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) is a type of open-angle glaucoma with intraocular pressure measurements always 21 mm Hg or less. A controversy surrounding NTG is the question of whether it should be regarded as a disease within the spectrum of primary open-angle glaucoma or as a distinctive disease entity. Nonetheless, NTG does have distinctive features compared with primary open-angle glaucoma: intraocular pressure-independent risk factors for development o...
Diagnostic patents usually comprise multiple steps and can be jointly implemented by different parties. However, in the USA, joint implementation may render diagnostic patents unenforceable in light of recent court opinions. Here, I explain how inappropriate claim drafting may render a diagnostic patent vulnerable to joint implementation.
Hypertension is the leading cause of early mortality in the world, and reduction of blood pressure can help to reduce that burden. There is an enormous and ever-expanding body of literature on hypertension, with a 2016 Medline search for hypertension retrieving more than 113,000 publications. Recent guidelines from major societies have been published, and often present conflicting recommendations based on the same data. Using a question-and-answer format, this article reviews some of the recent developments...
Next Generation DNA Sequencing technologies offer ultra high sequencing throughput for very low prices. The increase in throughput and diminished costs open up new research areas. Moreover, number of clinicians utilizing DNA sequencing keeps growing. One of the main concern for researchers and clinicians who are adopting these platforms is their sequencing accuracy. We compared three of the most commonly used Next Generation Sequencing platforms; Ion Torrent from Life Technologies, GS FLX+ from Roche and Hi...
The aim of this study was to explore the interaction between interface pressure, pressure-induced vasodilation, and reactive hyperaemia with different pressure-redistribution mattresses.
In patients with hypertension without diabetes and with an increased risk of cardiovascular complications a blood pressure of below 130 mmHg should be targeted. Hypertensive patients with an age above 80 years should be treated in the same way as younger hypertensive patients if they are otherwise healthy and functionally independent. On the other hand frail elderly patients could have an increased morbidity and mortality with intensive blood pressure control. In patients with resistant hypertension spirono...
Medication errors are a source of serious patient harm. A unique approach, Socio-Technical Probabilistic Risk Assessment, was used to analyze historical errors in this setting. The goal was to identify a minimal number of steps that would establish increased reliability and decrease errors if these steps were used every time. Three steps were identified that should be taken with every intravenous medication or fluid administration. Preliminary analysis revealed a 22% reduction in errors when using these 3 s...
The update reviews prevalence, classification, cause, and treatment options for allergic eye disease.
Little is known about the effective dose of motivational interviewing for maintaining intervention-induced health outcome improvements. The purpose of this study was to compare effects of two doses of motivational interviewing for maintaining blood pressure improvements in a community-engaged lifestyle intervention conducted with African-Americans. Participants were tracked through a 12-month maintenance phase following a 6-month intervention targeting physical activity and diet. For the maintenance phase, ...
To explore whether alterations in intraocular pressure (IOP) affect vein pulsation properties using ophthalmodynamometric measures of vein pulsation pressure.
DNA-sequencing giant Illumina has formed a new company, called Grail, to develop liquid biopsies capable of spotting cancer before symptoms arise. The start-up is working on a low-cost "pan-cancer" test that can detect multiple cancer types early, which it hopes to introduce by 2019.
Specialised pressure-relieving supports reduce or relieve the interface pressure between the skin and the support surface. The comparative effectiveness of dynamic support surfaces is debated. The aim of this study is to examine the impact of using an alternating pressure air mattress (APAM) on pressure ulcer (PU) incidence in patients receiving home-based care. A second aim was to determine the level of patient/family satisfaction with comfort and gain the views of the care team that used the APAM.
A common approach to blood pressure management in the operating room is to keep the intraoperative, pressures within 20% of baseline blood pressure. One question that arises from this recommendation is; what is a patient's true baseline blood pressure? In order to get a more precise definition of baseline blood pressure, a comparison of the first operating room blood pressure was made with the blood pressure taken in a preoperative holding area before surgery, and the blood pressure taken in pre-surgical te...
The tympanic membrane (TM) represents a pressure buffer, which contributes to the overall pressure regulation of the middle ear (ME). This buffer capacity is based on its viscoelastic properties combined with those of the attached ossicular chain, muscles and ligaments. The current work presents a set of in vivo recordings of the ME pressure variations normally occurring in common life: elevator motion. This is defined as a situation of smooth ambient pressure increase or decrease on a limited range and at ...
We would like to introduce a new section in the Journal of Women's Health, the Clinical Update. Important studies are continually published in both this Journal and other medical publications. However, it is difficult for busy providers to stay current with the changing literature. The Clinical Update is designed to serve as a review of recently published, high-impact, and potentially practice-changing journal articles, digested for our readers. The Clinical Update will be published on a quarterly basis. Ea...
Blood pressure measurement in clinical care settings seldom follows the protocol recommended by national guidelines, potentially leading to overestimates or underestimates of blood pressure control. We evaluated blood pressure measurement methods as a source of bias in determining blood pressure control among community-dwelling adults with diabetes.
Out of office blood pressure measurements, using either home monitors or 24 hour ambulatory monitoring, is widely recommended for management of hypertension. Though validation protocols, meant to be used by manufacturers, exist for blood pressure monitors, there is scant data in the literature about the accuracy of home blood pressure monitors in actual clinical practice. We performed a chart review in the blood pressure assessment clinic at a tertiary care centre.
