The objective of this study was to examine Hepatitis A (HAV) and Hepatitis B (HBV) screening, and the risk of HBV reactivation during Hepatitis C (HCV) therapy with direct-acting antivirals (DAAs). A retrospective chart review was performed of patients treated with second generation DAA therapy from January 2014 to September 2016 at the Iowa City VA Healthcare System. In total 409 patients initiated HCV treatment, 308 (75%) and 241 (59%) were HAV and HBV vaccine eligible, respectively. Among those, 24 (8%)...

The real-world outcomes of treating Polycythemia Vera: Physician adherence to treatment guidelines.

Therapy in Polycythemia Vera (PV), a myeloproliferative neoplasm, focuses on reducing cardiovascular (CV) risk without increasing bleeding or hematological progression. However, the real-world practice of treating PV in North America is understudied. We performed a retrospective cohort study of newly diagnosed PV (JAK2V617F mutation positive) patients in Hamilton, Canada to fill this knowledge gap. Out of 108 patients included, (n = 45, 41.7%) patients did not receive therapy consistent with contemporar...

Safety Profile of Secukinumab in Treatment of Patients with Psoriasis and Concurrent Hepatitis B or C: A Multicentric Prospective Cohort Study.

Safety data for secukinumab in patients with psoriasis and viral hepatitis are lacking. The aim of this study is to investigate the risk of reactivation of hepatitis B virus (HBV)/hepatitis C virus (HCV) in patients with psoriasis who are receiving secukinumab therapy. This multicentre study screened 284 patients with psoriasis with available HBV and HCV serological data and 63 patients with concurrent HBV/HCV infection were enrolled. In the absence of antiviral prophylaxis, 7 of 46 (15.2%) patients with HB...

Cytomegalovirus Colitis during Dasatinib Treatment for Patients with Hematologic Malignancy: Case Series and Literature Review.

Dasatinib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, is widely used for patients with chronic myeloid leukemia and Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Although the drug has a potent immunosuppressive effect, infectious complications during dasatinib treatment have been reported rarely. We describe five patients who developed cytomegalovirus (CMV) colitis during dasatinib treatment, in whom the colitis was initially confused with other causes. The patients, three with chronic myeloid leukemia, ...

Complete lymph node dissection or observation in melanoma patients with multiple positive sentinel lymph nodes: A single-center retrospective analysis.

Although the role of sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) as a prognostic factor is well established, its consequences for therapy are controversial. The aim of this study was to analyze if complete lymph node dissection (CLND) in patients with more than one positive sentinel lymph node (SLN) significantly improves melanoma-specific survival (MSS) and progression-free survival (PFS). Medical records of patients who underwent SLNB between 2001 and 2016 at the University Hospital of Cologne were reviewed, and pa...

Clinical Inquiries: What's the best secondary treatment for patients who fail initial triple therapy for H pylori?

Treating patients with infection who have failed clarithromycin-based triple therapy with either levofloxacin-based triple therapy (with amoxicillin and a proton pump inhibitor [PPI]) or a bismuth-based quadruple therapy produces cure rates of 75% to 81%. Ten-day regimens produce higher cure rates than 7-day regimens. Repeating the initial clarithromycin-based triple therapy cures fewer than half of patients (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, meta-analyses of randomized controlled trials [RCTs]).

Renal protective effect of antiplatelet therapy in antiphospholipid antibody-positive lupus nephritis patients without antiphospholipid syndrome.

We sought to evaluate the effect of antiplatelet therapy in addition to conventional immunosuppressive therapy for lupus nephritis (LN) patients positive for antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) without definite antiphospholipid syndrome (APS).

The Use of Surgery and Radiotherapy as Treatment of Regional Nodes in Breast Cancer Patients.

Ipsilateral regional nodal status is an important independent prognostic factor for patients with breast cancer. Several decisions regarding local therapy are necessary for patients found to have pathologically involved lymph node(s). This article reviews the role of completion dissection and/or radiation therapy in patients found to have positive sentinel lymph node(s), taking into consideration use of mastectomy vs lumpectomy, tumor characteristics, tumor biology, plans for systemic therapy, and patient p...

Low irradiance compared with conventional photodynamic therapy in the treatment of actinic keratoses.

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an effective therapy treating photodamaged areas with multiple actinic keratoses (AK). Still pain during therapy is one of the most challenging obstacles for patients. This retrospective study compares pain and efficiency intra-individual in patients using conventional PDT (c-PDT) compared to a low irradiance PDT protocol (li-PDT) with a reduced irradiance to 25% of c-PDT.

The Effect of Pet Therapy and Artist Interactions on Quality of Life in Brain Tumor Patients: A Cross-Section of Art and Medicine in Dialog.

With the evolution of modern medical treatment strategies, there also comes the realization that many times we reach a point where traditional goals of medical care, such as overall survival or disease-free survival, are not realistic goals for many patients facing devastating illnesses. One such disease is malignant primary brain tumors, known as malignant glioma (MG). With median survival of only 20.9 months following best available standard of care treatment strategies, including surgery, chemotherapy, r...

A Clinical Study of HMME-PDT Therapy in Chinese Pediatric patients with Port-wine stain.

To report our observations from a trial of the effectiveness and safety of hematoporphyrin monomethyl ether photodynamic therapy (HMME-PDT) in treating Chinese Pediatric patients port-wine stains (PWS).

HIV-Related Stigma, Motivation to Adhere to Antiretroviral Therapy, and Medication Adherence among HIV-Positive Methadone-Maintained Patients.

Opioid agonist therapies with methadone are associated with higher levels of adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART), yet no studies have explored factors associated with optimal ART levels in HIV-positive patients on methadone maintenance treatment (MMT), including explanatory pathways using mediation analysis.

Integrated fluorescent cytology with nano-biologics for peritoneally disseminated gastric cancer patients.

Gastric cancer patients positive for peritoneal cytology are at increased risk of tumor recurrence. However, while a certain proportion of cytology-positive patients relapse rapidly and progress aggressively, others survive longer with conventional chemotherapies. This heterogeneity makes it difficult to stratify patients for more intensive therapy and poses a substantial challenge for the implementation of precision medicine. We developed a new approach to identify biologically malignant subpopulations in ...

Long-term effects of intravenous iloprost therapy in patients with bone marrow oedema of the hip.

Bone marrow oedema (BMO) is a multifactorial condition. Various conservative treatment options include analgesic therapy, immobilisation of the affected joint and/or systemic intravenous iloprost or bisphosphonate therapy. Many studies confirm the positive effect of iloprost therapy in larger joints, e.g. the hip and knee joint, after short-term follow up. The objective of this study was to investigate that treatment with iloprost leads to positive long-term functional and radiological outcomes for BMO of t...

Vaccine Therapy of High-Grade Gliomas.

Multiple phase II clinical trials on the use of tumor vaccines in cases of high-grade gliomas (HGG), in particular autologous formalin-fixed tumor vaccine (AFTV), demonstrated the safety and potential efficacy of such therapy. There is evidence that maximal resection of neoplasm provides optimal conditions for enhancement of the tumor-specific immune reactions induced by vaccine administration, and thus aggressive surgery may be an important prerequisite for treatment success. Irradiation and chemotherapy m...

Postchemotherapy Immunization Practices for Non-HSCT Pediatric Oncology Patients.

Pediatric oncology patients treated with antineoplastic therapy have impaired immune systems that lead to loss of protective antibodies. They require reimmunization to protect against vaccine-preventable diseases. There are a paucity of studies on the clinical practice of pediatric oncologists and the available recommendations are heterogenous. This study describes current reimmunization practices among pediatric oncologists. We surveyed the Children's Oncology Group (COG)-identified principle investigators...

The CDK4/6 inhibitor in HR-positive advanced breast cancer: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Recently, several high-quality clinical randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have identified that cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) 4/6 inhibitors obtained a great safety and efficacy, which can be consequently applied as a combination therapy with letrozole or fulvestrant for women who had advanced breast cancer and progressed while receiving endocrine therapy. In this systemic review, we performed a meta-analysis to explore whether CDK4/6 inhibitors had a significantly benefit to treating hormone receptor-po...

High-dose influenza vaccine to reduce clinical outcomes in high-risk cardiovascular patients: Rationale and design of the INVESTED trial.

Influenza leads to significant cardiopulmonary morbidity and mortality-particularly in patients with cardiovascular disease-that may be prevented with a standard influenza vaccine. However, patients with cardiovascular conditions have a reduced immune response to influenza vaccine, potentially resulting in reduced effectiveness for preventing clinical events. High-dose vaccine augments immune response in cardiac patients, suggesting that a high-dose influenza vaccination strategy may further reduce morbidit...

Predictive Factors of Biochemical Recurrence in Positive Surgical Margin Patients by Radical Prostatectomy.

The predictive factors for biochemical recurrence (BCR) were investigated in patients with positive surgical margin of the extirpated prostate by radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP). The records of 365 patients who underwent RRP in our hospital between January 2002 and December 2014 were retrospectively analyzed. Patients who had received additional therapy before or after RRP, who had not been followed up for more than a year after surgery, and who had pN1 lesions were excluded from the study. Positive ...

Survival Benefit of Adjuvant Radiation Therapy in Node-positive Vulvar Cancer.

Adjuvant radiation therapy improves overall survival in patients with vulvar cancer with 2+ positive lymph nodes, but its benefit remains uncertain for 1 positive lymph node.

Tumor Treating Fields Utilization in a Glioblastoma Patient with a Preexisting Cardiac Pacemaker: The First Reported Case.

Tumor treating fields (TTF) have become an important, evidence-based modality in the treatment of glioblastoma (GBM). In patients requiring cardiac pacemakers, TTF therapy is complicated by theoretical concerns regarding possible electrical interaction between the devices.

Hospitalization of HIV positive patients in a referral tertiary care hospital in Antananarivo Madagascar, 2010-2016: Trends, causes and outcome.

During the last few years, significant efforts have been made to improve access to antiretroviral therapy which led to dramatic reduction in AIDS-related events and mortality in HIV positive patients at the global level. However, current data in Africa suggested modest impact of widespread antiretroviral therapy scale-up especially regarding HIV-related hospitalization. In this study, we aimed to describe causes of hospitalization and factors associated with AIDS-defining events and inpatient mortality.

Intramuscular Immunization Induces Antigen-specific Antibodies in Urine.

Towards the development of vaccines against urinary tract infections (UTI), we determined the ability of intramuscular (i.m.) immunization to result in antigen-specific antibodies in urine. As a model antigen/vaccine, levels of total and vaccine-specific antibodies were determined in urine as a spin-out study of a phase 1 trial. Non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) patients at different risks of progression, undergoing intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) immunotherapy or not, received an adju...

Optimized Gemcitabine Therapy in Combination with E7 Peptide Immunization Elicits Tumor Cure by Preventing Ag-Specific CTL Inhibition in Animals with Large Established Tumors.

The role of chemotherapeutic agents in tumor immunotherapy is still controversial. In this study, we test using a TC-1 tumor model whether gemcitabine plus E7 peptide vaccine regimens (E7 peptides+CpG-ODN+anti-4-1BB Abs) may result in tumor cure in mice with large established tumors, with a focus on their effects on Ag-specific cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) and myeloid-derived suppressor cell levels. Gemcitabine inhibited tumor growth by its direct cytotoxicity to tumor cells in vivo. E7 peptide vaccine regi...

Real-world use of fidaxomicin in a large UK tertiary hospital: How effective is it for treating recurrent disease?

We reviewed all courses of fidaxomicin use in our hospital. It was used for first recurrence (6 times), second recurrence (8) and third recurrence (once). One received fidaxomicin first-line. Eight patients initially responded to therapy. Three of these were asymptomatic at 90 days; three remained asymptomatic at 30 days and two had recurrences 5 and 9 days after stopping therapy. Four patients failed to respond; two required faecal transplantation and one required a colectomy. Two patients deteriorated and...
