Non-specific and often misleading clinical presentation of active brucellosis has made it a diagnostic puzzle for treating physicians. Clinicians rely greatly on the detection of IgG and IgM anti- antibodies by ELISA. Different patterns of positivity have been observed for IgG and IgM anti- antibodies in different cases, which further increases the risk of an erroneous diagnosis. Detailed herein is our two-years data with varied serology patterns and their clinical interpretation. Between January 2015 to D...
Randomized controlled trials are known to be the best tool to determine the effects of an intervention; however, most healthcare professionals are not able to adequately understand the results. In this report, concepts, applications, examples, and advantages of using visual data as a complementary tool in the results section of original articles are presented. Visual simplification of data presentation will improve general understanding of clinical research.
The incidence, presentation and outcomes of lupus nephritis (LN) varies with geography, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and gender. There is relatively few data on LN in the non-Caucasian populations in Australia. This study describes the clinical presentation, histological features, natural history, and outcomes of a historical cohort of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders people in Far North Queensland with biopsy-proven LN.
The increasing adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) in clinical practice holds the promise of improving care and advancing research by serving as a rich source of data, but most EHRs allow clinicians to enter data in a text format without much structure. Natural language processing (NLP) may reduce reliance on manual abstraction of these text data by extracting clinical features directly from unstructured clinical digital text data and converting them into structured data.
To compare the clinical presentation and outcomes of retinoblastoma (RB) based on age at presentation.
Data collection in clinical trials is becoming complex, with a huge number of variables that need to be recorded, verified, and analyzed to effectively measure clinical outcomes. In this study, we used data warehouse (DW) concepts to achieve this goal. A DW was developed to accommodate data from a large clinical trial, including all the characteristics collected. We present the results related to baseline variables with the following objectives: developing a data quality (DQ) control strategy and improving ...
Abdominal aortic aneurysm affects 5-9% of the population over the age of 65 years; is more common in male smokers and in patients with a positive family history of aortic aneurysms. Most patients are asymptomatic; rupture is the most common and dreaded complication. The classical triad of back pain, hypotension and pulsatile mass is the most common presentation but is present in only 25-50% of patients. Clinical presentation seems dependent on rupture site. Our report illustrate a rare clinical presentation...
Late presentation of the patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is associated with less favourable treatment responses, more accelerated clinical progression, and a higher mortality risk. Although HIV prevalence is low in Turkey, it is steadily increasing and the information about late presentation among HIV-positives is limited. We aimed to analyze the status of late presentation among HIV-positive patients in Turkey.
Punctal agenesis is defined as the absence of the punctum occurring secondary to a failure of embryogenesis. This review synthesizes existing data on the embryology, anatomy, clinical presentation, symptomatology, management options and treatment outcomes of punctal agenesis. A foundational knowledge of the underlying embryologic and anatomical abnormalities is fundamental to understanding its clinical presentation and assists in choosing an appropriate management strategy. Existing outcomes data is general...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the natural history of patients with these heterogeneous aneurysms to provide guidance for their treatment. This retrospective analysis was performed at a single institution and included 137 patients with complex intracranial aneurysms who underwent a natural history evaluation. Among the 115 patients who underwent bypass surgery, stroke (n = 39, 33.9%) was the most common clinical symptom followed by progressively severe headaches (n = 25, 21.7%). Of the 104 patien...
An association between migraine and sleep disturbances in children was reported, yet limited clinical data exist. The current study addresses the clinical presentation, polysomnographic (PSG) characteristics, and comorbid sleep diagnoses of children with migraine referred to the sleep clinic.
In this work we present the third generation of FAst MEtabolizer (FAME 3), a collection of extra trees classifiers for the prediction of sites of metabolism (SoMs) in small molecules such as drugs, drug-like compounds, natural products, agrochemicals and cosmetics. FAME 3 was derived from the MetaQSAR database (J Med Chem 2018, 61, 1019-1030), a recently published data resource on xenobiotic metabolism that contains more than 2,100 substrates annotated with more than 6,300 experimentally confirmed SoMs rela...
Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) refers to a range of autoimmune inflammatory demyelinating diseases affecting the optic nerves, spinal cord, and periependymal regions of the brain. Classical NMOSD is characterized by the presentation of autoantibodies against the water channel aquaporin-4 (AQP4). However, a subset of patients fulfilling the clinical criteria for NMOSD is negative for AQP4-IgG but positive for autoantibodies against myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG); these patients are...
Bezlotoxumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody that binds and neutralizes Clostridium difficile toxin B. This analysis investigated the potential of bezlotoxumab to induce immunogenicity in healthy phase 1 trial participants and in phase 2/3 trial participants receiving oral antibacterial therapy for primary or recurrent C difficile infection. Immunogenicity to bezlotoxumab was evaluated following a single intravenous dose (≤20 mg/kg) or 2 consecutive doses (10 mg/kg) given 84 days apart in healthy p...
Data are limited on clinical presentation and outcomes in elderly patients with acute symptomatic isolated subsegmental pulmonary embolism (SSPE). We compared clinical presentation, risk factors, processes of care, and outcomes between elderly patients with SSPE and patients with more proximal pulmonary embolism (PE).
Purine nucleoside phosphorylase (PNP) is a known yet rare cause of combined immunodeficiency with a heterogeneous clinical presentation. We aim to add to the expanding clinical spectrum of disease, and to summarize the available data on bone marrow transplant for this condition.
Pyrotinib, an irreversible pan-ErbB inhibitor, showed promising antitumor activity and acceptable tolerability in a phase I trial. We assessed the efficacy and tolerability of pyrotinib versus lapatinib, both in combination with capecitabine, in women with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive metastatic breast cancer in an open-label, multicenter, randomized phase II study.
This review summarises the treatment strategies of the last five decades for metastatic urothelial cancer. The introduction of combination chemotherapy in the mid-1980s led to clinically significant response rates and prolonged survival. Two years ago, the results of a phase-3 clinical trial with the PD1 inhibitor pembrolizumab for second-line treatment of metastatic urothelial carcinoma were published. These data were the first to show an overall survival benefit in comparison with a conventional chemother...
Novel approaches that complement and go beyond evidence-based medicine are required in the domain of chronic diseases, given the growing incidence of such conditions on the worldwide population. A promising avenue is the secondary use of electronic health records (EHRs), where patient data are analyzed to conduct clinical and translational research. Methods based on machine learning to process EHRs are resulting in improved understanding of patient clinical trajectories and chronic disease risk prediction, ...
Scrub typhus is still underdiagnosed despite a resurgence in incidence as the clinical presentation is often atypical leading to low index of suspicion among clinicians. We report a case of a young girl presenting as lobar pneumonia and diagnosed as scrub typhus. Despite such a classical picture of community-acquired pneumonia on clinical presentation and radiological findings the patient was found to have scrub typhus serologically thereby posing a diagnostic dilemma. Upon serological confirmation, doxycyc...
Electronic medical records (EMR) contain numerical data important for clinical outcomes research, such as vital signs and cardiac ejection fractions (EF), which tend to be embedded in narrative clinical notes. In current practice, this data is often manually extracted for use in research studies. However, due to the large volume of notes in datasets, manually extracting numerical data often becomes infeasible. The objective of this study is to develop and validate a natural language processing (NLP) tool th...
Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is an acquired thrombophilia with an uncertain role in the development of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). We aimed to assess the association of APS with the clinical phenotype of CTEPH. We retrospectively reviewed data of CTEPH patients referred to our center. Clinical, angiographic, and hemodynamic data were available for all patients. APS was diagnosed in the presence of one or more positive antiphospholipid (aPL) tests confirmed more than 12 weeks ap...
A substantial portion of medical data is unstructured. Extracting data from unstructured text presents a barrier to advancing clinical research and improving patient care. In addition, ongoing studies have been focused predominately on the English language, whereas inflected languages with non-Latin alphabets (such as Slavic languages with a Cyrillic alphabet) present numerous linguistic challenges. We developed deep-learning-based natural language processing algorithms for automatically extracting biomarke...
