Reversible Cerebral Vasoconstriction Syndrome Presenting as Coma (P4.354)

Conclusions: RCVS rarely can present with coma and multifocal infarctions. Exact pathophysiology remains unknown but disruption of sympathetic tone and endothelial dysfunction have been implicated. A high index of suspicion is required to minimize disease complications and prevent improper withdrawal of care.Disclosure: Dr. Khan has nothing to disclose. Dr. Adcock has nothing to disclose.

Authors: Atzema CL, Jackevicius CA, Chong A, Dorian P, Ivers NM, Parkash R, Austin PC Abstract BACKGROUND: Patients with atrial fibrillation frequently seek emergency care. Rates of guideline-concordant oral anticoagulant therapy for stroke prevention are suboptimal in the community. We assessed the association between prescribing of oral anticoagulants in the emergency department (relative to referral to a longitudinal care provider for treatment initiation) and long-term use of oral anticoagulants. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study performed at 15 hospitals in Ontario, Canada, involved patients aged 65...

In this study, the effects of the addition of various polysaccharides (konjac gum, gellan gum, and curdlan gum) on the rheological and textural properties of calcium sulfate-induced soy protein isolate gels were investigated. The incorporation of konjac gum and curdlan gum at 0.3 and 0.5% (w/v) concentrations and gellan gum at 0.5% concentration significantly enhanced (P

In this study, we investigated the effect of WDL on lytic human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection. We demonstrate a strong interference with HCMV replication as analyzed in multi-round replication settings. A more detailed analysis of the underlying mechanisms revealed that WDL acts at two distinct steps of the viral replication cycle. During immediate early (IE) times, we observe an inhibition of IE1/IE2 expression. Although WDL was reported to interfere with NF-κB signaling our results suggest the existence of additional mechanisms that impede viral IE expression. During later time points of infection, WDL induced a...

CONCLUSIONS: HVLF and EDS produced a deep intranasal/intrasinal deposition in the silicone cast compared with conventional nasal spray delivery; both deposited liquid inside the surgically opened sinuses. HVLF offers the benefit of lavage, whereas EDS may be more efficient and convenient. PMID: 31813944 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Transmission electron microscope (TEM) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) images reveal that the samples have hollow structures with double shells of UC layer and magnetic layer. N2 adsorption/ desorption isotherm analysis shows the samples have ...

BooneAbstractX-ray Fluorescence Computed Tomography (XFCT) is an emerging imaging technique that provides elemental distribution in objects non-invasively. To predict and optimize the experimental outcome of XFCT, data generated by Monte Carlo (MC) simulation is usually used. However, MC codes typically require extended computing times to generate sufficient data. In this paper, we report an XFCT simulation method based on analytical computat...

In this study, AA loading PEGylated nanostructured lipid carriers (P-AA-NLC) were prepared. P-AA-NLC were characterized for particle size distribution, polydispersity index, entrapment efficiency, X-ray powder diffraction pattern (XRD), differential scanning colorimeter (DSC) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The intestinal absorption, in vivo distribution, pharmacokinetics and anti-fibrosis effects of P-AA-NLC were studied compared with that of AA-NLC. In situ single-pass intestinal perfusion model shown that there are significant differences in absorption between the free and NLCs formulation. The Peff values o...
