Human papilloma virus infection and psoriasis: Did human papilloma virus infection trigger psoriasis?

Sonia P Jain, Sachin Gulhane, Neha Pandey, Esha BisneIndian Journal of Sexually Transmitted Diseases and AIDS 2015 36(2):201-203Psoriasis is an autoimmune chronic inflammatory skin disease known to be triggered by streptococcal and HIV infections. However, human papilloma virus infection (HPV) as a triggering factor for the development of psoriasis has not been reported yet. We, hereby report a case of plaque type with inverse psoriasis which probably could have been triggered by genital warts (HPV infection) and discuss the possible pathomechanisms for their coexistence and its management.

This study comprised a cross-sectional online survey designed to ask questions about sexual behaviours. A convenience sample of young people (n=52) aged 16-19 years living in New Zealand completed the survey. RESULTS Most participants (71.2%) were sexually active, reporting engagement in a range of sexual practices. The most commonly reported sexual behaviours were penis-in-vagina sex (86.5%) and oral sex with a person-with-a-penis (81.1%). Infrequent and inconsistent use of barrier protection across all types of sexual behaviour was also reported. DISCUSSION The findings of this study highlight the importance of ensuring ...

CONCLUSION: Our results indicated that MSC-secretome had DPP-IV/CD26 and APN/CD13 activity. The DPP-IV/CD26 activity was decreased following stimulation of MSCs by toll-like receptor 4 agonist. Further studies are needed to reveal the possible contribution of DPP-IV/CD26 and APN/CD13 in the anti-inflammatory functions of MSC-CM. PMID: 32224540 [PubMed - in process]

Purpose of review The universal adoption of electronic health records, improvement in technology, and the availability of continuous monitoring has generated large quantities of healthcare data. Machine learning is increasingly adopted by nephrology researchers to analyze this data in order to improve the care of their patients. Recent findings In this review, we provide a broad overview of the different types of machine learning algorithms currently available and how researchers have applied these methods in nephrology research. Current applications have included prediction of acute kidney injury and chronic kidney d...

David BoazSigns have popped up all over my neighborhood in Arlington, Virginia, urging us to respond to the census – so that the8th wealthiest county in America won ’t miss out on funding collected from taxpayers across the country.Census Bureau materials stress to local officials that census data will help them get “their fair share of funding” from hundreds of federal programs.Obviously this is a zero‐​sum game. If my neighbors and I all fill out the form, then you and your neighbors will get less from the common federal trough. But at least we ’ll be getting our “fair sh...

Conclusions: IDA significantly increases autoimmune disease risk, particularly in female patients and patients with certain comorbidities. Clinicians should conduct further clinical evaluations and laboratory tests of autoimmune disease in patients with IDA.Plain Language Summary: Little is known about the relationship between iron deficiency and autoimmune disease. By using a national-level database in Taiwan, we noted a meaningful association between iron deficiency anemia (IDA) and later autoimmune disease development. Our study extends the known disease range and recommends that physicians be alert for the occurrence o...

CONCLUSIONS: The survey results suggest that dentists' comfort levels and perceived roles in discussing and administering the HPV vaccine vary. PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS: There is a need to further define the role of dentists and their team members in the promotion and administration of the HPV vaccine. Resources for dentists and dental team members may be helpful to support professional education and communication about the HPV vaccine. PMID: 32222178 [PubMed - in process]

Cellular senescence is one of the contributing causes of aging, in the sense that senescent cells accumulate in old tissues. Even when only a tiny fraction of all cells are senescent, their signaling causes chronic inflammation and disruption of tissue function. Senescence is, however, a helpful program when these cells exist only temporarily and are promptly destroyed. The signaling that is so harmful when maintained over the long term aids in wound healing and suppression of cancer when present for a short time only. Since the comparatively recent acceptance of senescent cells as an important cause of aging, the research...
