Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) levels of total tau (t-tau) protein are thought to reflect the intensity of the neuronal damage in neurodegeneration, including Alzheimer's disease (AD). The recent link of CSF t-tau to rapidly progressive AD raises the question among other AD clinical variants regarding CSF t-tau. We investigated the clinical phenotypes of AD patients with varying CSF t-tau levels.
Huntington's disease (HD) is a genetic disorder known for affecting motor control. Despite evidence for the impact of HD on visual cortico-striatal loops, evidence for impaired visual perceptual in early symptomatic HD patients is limited; much less is known about what happens during the HD prodrome.
Reply to Oliver W. Quarrell et al.: Letter in response to Tibben et al., Risk Assessment for Huntington's Disease for (Future) Offspring Requires Offering Preconceptional CAG Analysis to Both Partners.
Few adequately-powered studies have systematically evaluated brain morphology in adult-onset myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1).
As therapeutic trials target early stages of Parkinson's disease (PD), appropriate patient selection based purely on clinical criteria poses significant challenges. Members of the Critical Path for Parkinson's Consortium formally submitted documentation to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) supporting the use of Dopamine Transporter (DAT) neuroimaging in early PD. Regulatory documents included a comprehensive literature review, a proposed analysis plan of both observational and clinical trial data, and an ...
Stroke often leads to neuronal injury and neurological functional deficits. Whilst spontaneous neurogenesis and axon regeneration are induced by ischemic stroke, effective pharmacological treatments are also essential for the improvement of neuroplasticity and functional recovery after stroke. However, no pharmacological therapy has been demonstrated to be able to effectively improve the functional recovery after stroke. Bumetanide is a specific Na +-K +-Cl- co-transporter inhibitor which can maintain chl...
A GI Quality improvement consortium registry study published in this issue of The American Journal of Gastroenterology confirms the lack of adherence to surveillance intervals and guidelines in patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE). Given the widespread use of upper endoscopy for evaluation of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease and surveillance of BE, the lack of well-defined standard criteria for performing a high quality upper endoscopy calls for the establishment of valid quality indicators i...
Neurokinin-1 receptor (NK1R) antagonists are known for their anxiolytic, antiemetic, anticancer, and anti-inflammatory effects. Aprepitant is used in vomiting and nausea, which are the most common side-effects of patients undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. L-733,060 has been shown to have anxiolytic and antidepressant effects in animal studies and anticancer effect in in-vitro studies. Previous anticancer activity studies with NK1R antagonists have reported that NK-1 antagonists have an antitumoral activit...
HIV atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease (CVD) represent a significant human health burden in the era of combination antiretroviral therapy (cART). The pathogenesis of HIV atherosclerosis is still poorly understood, due, in part, to the lack of a suitable small animal model. Indoleamine-2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) enzyme activity is the first and rate-limiting step in tryptophan catabolism and is measured by the kynurenine to tryptophan ratio (KTR). The serum KTR is a biomarker of inflammation and has recen...
Although diabetes is more common in HIV patients, the direct link between HIV and diabetes is unknown. Glucose abnormalities should be assessed among antiretroviral treatment (ART)-naive patients to reduce confounding by ART. We assessed diabetes status, insulin function and association with inflammation among Ethiopian ART-naive HIV patients.
Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) is a complex and rapidly fatal prion infection of the central nervous system with characteristic clinical and pathological findings. Herein, we present the case of an 80-year-old man with a 2-month history of rapid cognitive decline and ataxic gait. He was found to have a positive rapid plasma reagin and fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption (FTA-ABS) upon clinical testing and was presumed to have neurosyphilis. His neurological status precipitously declined during his h...
Very limited data are available on the immunovirological outcomes after 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13) in ART-treated patients. The aim of this study was to assess the immune-virological outcomes in HIV-1 infected ART-treated patients on stable virological suppression who underwent pneumococcal conjugate vaccination.
Assess patient outcomes in patients with suspected infection and the cost-effectiveness of implementing a quality improvement program.
External Validation of Two Models to Predict Delirium in Critically Ill Adults Using Either the Confusion Assessment Method-ICU or the Intensive Care Delirium Screening Checklist for Delirium Assessment.
To externally validate two delirium prediction models (early prediction model for ICU delirium and recalibrated prediction model for ICU delirium) using either the Confusion Assessment Method-ICU or the Intensive Care Delirium Screening Checklist for delirium assessment.
We aimed to describe changes over time in admissions and outcomes, including length of stay, discharge destinations, and mortality of cirrhotic patients admitted to the ICU for variceal bleeding, and to compare it to the outcomes of those with other causes of ICU admissions.
Osteochondromas are benign bone tumors that rarely involve the pubic symphysis. This case report describes a 41-year-old woman with a pubic symphyseal osteochondroma associated with an aberrantly placed single incision sling. After an outside surgeon placed a single incision midurethral sling for stress urinary incontinence, she developed pelvic pain, dyspareunia and vaginal mesh sling exposure. Imaging demonstrated a 2.6 centimeter calcified mass posterior to the pubic symphysis. The patient underwent exci...
Management of patients with meningitis and encephalitis oftentimes requires ICU level of care. This article is an update on management for meningitis and encephalitis with focus on clinical care in the ICU. Information provided is based on a review of recent studies with focus on studies since 2017.
Recent guidelines on postoperative delirium (POD) recommend POD screening in all patients, using a validated tool, starting in the recovery room. An operationalisation of the Confusion Assessment Method (CAM) criteria, the 3-Minute Diagnostic Interview for CAM-defined Delirium (3D-CAM), has been developed for use in general medical units.
Comparison of low and high positive end-expiratory pressure during low tidal volume ventilation in robotic gynaecological surgical patients using electrical impedance tomography: A randomised controlled trial.
The appropriate level of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) during intra-operative mechanical ventilation remains unclear.
Reports indicate that chest compression may induce skeletal chest injuries. We aimed to assess the factors associated with skeletal chest injuries and the probability of skeletal chest injuries following cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in patients who were successfully resuscitated after cardiac arrest.
Breathlessness debilitates countless people with a wide range of common diseases. For some people, the experience of breathlessness is poorly explained by the findings of medical tests. This disparity complicates diagnostic and treatment options and means that disease-modifying treatments do not always have the expected effect upon symptoms. These observations suggest that brain processing of respiratory perceptions may be somewhat independent of disease processes. This may help to explain the dissonance ob...
This case highlights the use of lymphoscintigraphy with SPECT/CT in patients with previous chest and/or axillary surgery. A 67-year-old woman with a history of left breast carcinoma treated with lumpectomy and radiotherapy, and a second lumpectomy of the ipsilateral breast for a second breast carcinoma, underwent a lymphoscintigraphy for a new left breast lesion. Planar images visualized an alternative lymphatic drainage to the contralateral axilla and to the left paravertebral area. SPECT/CT confirmed sent...
Some patients with splenic angiosarcoma initially manifest thrombocytopenia owing to hypersplenism or tumor-related bone marrow fibrosis. The diagnosis of bone marrow metastasis in patients with splenic angiosarcoma is challenging, as the presentation mimics idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura or primary myelofibrosis. Our case showed diffuse FDG uptake in the vertebral bodies, sacroiliac bone, humerus, femur, and clavicles. It was pathologically diagnosed as bone marrow metastasis of splenic angiosarcoma. ...
Intracranial infiltration is a rare complication of multiple myeloma (MM), which is usually seen in advanced stage. Here, we report a 47-year-old woman with only cavernous sinus syndrome as first manifestation. Brain MR revealed cavernous sinus masses, leptomeningeal nodules, and osseous erosion, which were considered metastases. F-FDG PET/CT, which was further performed to identify potential primary lesions, showed increased uptake not only in cavernous sinus and leptomeninges but also in diffuse bone lesi...
