Authors: Bin Huraib G, Al Harthi F, Arfin M, Rizvi S, Al-Asmari A Abstract Background: Psoriasis is a complex autoimmune disease caused by the interaction of genetic and environmental factors. PTPN22 gene polymorphism has been reported to affect psoriasis susceptibility; however, no data are available for Middle Eastern populations. Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the association of PTPN22 (1858C/T) R620W polymorphism with psoriasis in a Saudi cohort. Methods: Saudi subjects (n = 306) including patients with psoriasis (n = 106) and matched controls (n =...

CONCLUSIONS: Tests based on anti-TG IgA are more accurate for detecting CD in children with type 1 diabetes than anti-DGP IgA. A high percentage of diabetic children carry HLA alleles predisposing to CD, which indicates that genetic screening in this group of patients is not obligated.

CONCLUSIONS: No difference was found in the final functional outcome in pediculted versus free grafts. The cosmetic result was better in anterior lamella reconstructions with a pediculated flap, which usually allows a one-stage procedure. The 2nd stage procedure could be performed after 2 weeks without any complications. PMID: 29351708 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: DE Leo V, Cianci A, DI Carlo C, Cappelli V, Fruzzetti F Abstract In the last few years new oral contraceptives have been marketed showing a better safety profile for women. They are the result of important changes made to the old compounds. As far as the estrogenic component, with the aim of decreasing side effects, the dose of ethinyl estradiol has been reduced and synthetic estrogens have been replaced by natural estradiol, further improving the safety profile. Also the progestin component in the last years has been changed in terms of dose, endocrine and metabolic characteristics. Levonorgestrel is an a...
Authors: Amstad Bencaiova G, Krafft A, Zimmermann R, Burkhardt T Abstract Objective: We assess and compare the efficacy of anemia treatment in pregnant women with anemia of chronic disease with true iron deficiency and in women with iron deficiency anemia. Study Design: Fifty patients with moderate anemia (hemoglobin 8.0-9.9 g/dl) and iron deficiency (ferritin

Authors: Andrew E, Nehme Z, Bernard S, Smith K Abstract OBJECTIVE: Although hospital presentations for pediatric anaphylaxis have been described in the literature, a minimal amount is known regarding the incidence, characteristics, and management of pediatric anaphylaxis presenting to emergency medical services (EMS). METHODS: We performed a retrospective observational study of pediatrics (≤16 years) presenting to EMS in Victoria, Australia. Patients with suspected anaphylaxis were included if they were treated with epinephrine before or after EMS arrival. We used descriptive statistics to compare basel...
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of an evidence-based pediatric EMS asthma protocol update, inclusive of oral glucocorticoid administration, on time to hospital discharge. METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study of children (2-18 years) with an acute asthma exacerbation transported by an urban EMS system to 10 emergency departments over 2 years. The investigators implemented an EMS protocol update one year into the study period requiring glucocorticoid administration for all patients, with the major change being inclusion of oral dexamethasone (0.6 mg/kg, max. dose = 10 ...
