  • After exclusion of secondary causes of eosinophilia, diagnostic evaluation of primary eosinophilias relies on a combination of morphologic review of the blood and marrow, standard cytogenetics, fluorescent in situ hybridization, flow immunocytometry, and T-cell clonality assessment to detect histopathologic or clonal evidence for an acute or…[Read more]

  • In this section we will try and address many of the frequently asked questions around preventive and prophylactic measures for patients either starting or already established on bone-targeted therapy (Figs. 2 and 3). In view of the difficulties in treating ONJ, preventive strategies would seem to make the most sense. The efficacy of preventive…[Read more]

  • The conventional cutoff for small for gestational age is based on birthweight, which is suitable for infants born at term but is far less appropriate for those born preterm. Preterm birth is itself pathological, and ultrasound-based estimates of fetal weight show that infants born preterm are much smaller than their peers who remain in utero at…[Read more]

  • El presente artículo busca exponer un panorama general de la dinámica de movilización y representación política emprendida por los principales movimientos sociales presentes en Perú, los cuales se desenvuelven en un contexto signado aún por las reformas estructurales, los cambios constitucionales y la persistencia de consensos ideológicos autorit…[Read more]

  • The 2014–15 west African outbreak of Ebola virus disease is unprecedented in scale, especially in Sierra Leone, which as of May 15, 2015, had reported 8598 confirmed cases and 3538 confirmed Ebola-related deaths. Sierra Leone’s response to this emergency has been compromised by a fragile health system with scant resources, limited i…[Read more]

  • Cisplatin-based chemotherapy is commonly used in adjuvant CCRT, but data on carboplatin-based chemotherapy with radiotherapy is lacking. Khoury et al reported that patients treated with carboplatin-based chemoradiotherapy show worse outcomes. However, the impact on patient comorbidities was not reported, and patients treated with carboplatin u…[Read more]

  • Chronic Human EPOR / Erythropoietin Receptor Protein (Fc Tag) virus (HBV) infection is prevalent in many Asian countries, notwithstanding three decades of universal hepatitis B vaccination programs. The invention of nucleos(t)ide analogs (NUCs) was a breakthrough in the treatment of chronic hepatitis B (CHB). However, HBV continues to be a…[Read more]

  • A manera de conclusiónEl periódico La Lucha mantuvo una postura contra la intervención estadounidense en el proceso independentista cubano de 1895. Misma que refrendó en la coyuntura de la imposición de la Enmienda Platt. En esa ocasión utilizó un lenguaje grandilocuente que vislumbraba un futuro negro para la mayor de las Antillas y que por su…[Read more]

  • Tara Mangal and colleagues document the struggle to eliminate polio in northern Nigeria. However, they overlook the importance of routine immunisation to polio eradication efforts.The investigators identified an association between the risk of contracting polio and oral polio vaccine unavailability. Systemic problems with routine immunisation…[Read more]

  • Como se puede advertir en la narración de Cuadra o, más claramente, en la encuesta que elaboró Téfel, hay toda una toma de conciencia en los sectores medios e intelectuales respecto gingerol los pobres. Esta nueva conciencia proyectó también la necesidad de integrar la racionalidad nacional a los, así llamados, marginales. Proclamar la integr…[Read more]

  • Eosinophilia often occurs as a secondary process due to parasitic infections, allergy, Sodium phosphate monobasic disease, malignancy, or drug reactions. When secondary causes of eosinophilia are excluded, one must consider HES, which is defined as a peripheral eosinophil count of greater than 1.5×109/L on at least 2 occasions and the absence…[Read more]

  • DiscussionWe herein report a case of inappropriate shock therapy that was caused by T-wave oversensing and that occurred when the patient had sinus tachycardia and was squatting. Several methods were considered to troubleshoot this problem. We decreased the sensitivity and increased the NID and detection rate of ventricular tachycardia in order to…[Read more]

  • The effectiveness of the intervention varied across districts, with the proportion of infections averted inversely related to pre-intervention consistent condom use (appendix). Understandably, for districts in which previous interventions had already led to high consistent condom use among high-risk groups before Avahan, only small, incremental…[Read more]

  • The authors of the NCCN non-small cell lung cancer guidelines provide the most guidance about radiotherapy dosing for painful bone metastases of any of the primary sites evaluated [39]. Bone metastases due to non-small cell lung cancer are separated into those “with soft tissue mass” versus those “without soft tissue mass”, with recomme…[Read more]

  • Bennet and colleagues also make an important addition to the literature on the Affordable Medicines Facility—malaria (AMFm) intervention, since a comparison of ACT treatment coverage for countries that had the AMFm intervention is made with those for countries that did not have the AMFm intervention. However, the authors acknowledge that the h…[Read more]

  • In the days before Christmas, 1952, adverse weather conditions and the burning of sulphurous coal led to the death of almost 12 000 people in London. Despite improvements in pollution prevention since the “Great Smog”, London continues to experience toxic air pollution linked to thousands of premature deaths every year. In 2017, however, the main…[Read more]

  • The Zika virus epidemic is spreading: 63 countries are now reporting transmission, over 1500 cases of related microcephaly or CNS malformations have been confirmed this year, and knowledge on the disease is advancing slowly. Adding to the tension around Zika, at the epicentre of the outbreak, Brazil is bracing for a large-scale mass gathering: the…[Read more]

  • Desde otra perspectiva, tendiente nobiletin debilitar las tesis de Ardao y de Rojas Mix, ese mismo año de 1998, Vicente Romero reconsideró la influencia sobre Bilbao de Lamennais e hizo gravitar sobre él el sentido suyo de la latinidad. Ese sentido sería el que pone en circulación el comité Latino de París, que había fundado y lideraba el propio…[Read more]

  • CommentaryHer ECG showed a regular wide QRS complex tachycardia at a rate of 130 beats per minute. The morphology of the QRS complex exhibited the right BBB (RBBB) pattern with inferior axis. The duration of the QRS complex was 0.16s. P waves of sinus origin were not seen, presumably hidden in the QRS complex, during the tachycardia.Wide QRS…[Read more]
