Conclusions: In many cases, pediatric AOM was found to constitute a respiratory polymicrobial infection. Multiplex PCR was useful to detect multiple respiratory viruses and bacteria in AOM.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe goal of this review is to evaluate the role of inhibiting the synthesis of lipoproteins when there is no or little residual LDL-receptor function as in patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia. Lomitapide is administered orally once a day while mipomersen is given by subcutaneous injection once a week. Lomitapide inhibits microsomal triglyceride transfer protein while mipomersen is an antisense oligonucleotide directed against apoB100.Recent FindingsThe pivotal registration trials for lomitapide and mipomersen were published in 2013 and 2010, respectively. More recently published...
