We report a patient with recurrent ACC arising from the submandibular gland, treated with 100 mg/m2 nedaplatin every 4 weeks. Although our patient ’s lactate dehydrogenase levels, which is produced by ACC, showed a rising trend throughout the treatment, the level decreased for approximately 2 weeks immediately after administration of nedaplatin every 4 weeks. Thus, there is a possibility that the agent may be effective. Complications such as anorexia and nausea were observed, but they were tolerated and manageable. Nedaplatin may be considered as a supportive agent during palliative therapy for patients with ACC. Mor...

Background: Disease accumulates in the small airways without being detected by conventional measurements.Objectives: To quantify small airway disease using a novel computed tomography (CT) inspiratory-to-expiratory approach called the disease probability measure (DPM) and to investigate the association with pulmonary function measurements.Methods: Participants from the population-based CanCOLD study were evaluated using full-inspiration/full-expiration CT and pulmonary function measurements. Full-inspiration and full-expiration CT images were registered, and each voxel was classified as emphysema, gas trapping (GasTrap) re...

Publication date: Available online 23 August 2017 Source:Veterinary Microbiology Author(s): Munir Aktas, Sezayi Ozubek Hemotropic mycoplasmas are emerging zoonotic pathogens that cause mild to severe hemolytic anemia. Blood samples and thin blood smears were collected from six sheep exhibiting clinical symptoms typical of hemolytic anemia. Coccoid and ring-shaped M. ovis were found on the surface of erythrocytes of infected sheep. Parasitemia ranged from 0.7% to 3.7% in individual smears. Clinical cases caused by Mycoplasma ovis were evaluated, and prevalence, based on DNA screening for the 16S rRNA gene of hemoplasmas in...

The threat of obesity, diabetes, anorexia, and bulimia in our society today has motivated extensive research on dietary monitoring. Standard self-report methods such as 24-h recall and food frequency questionnaires are expensive, burdensome, and unreliable to handle the growing health crisis. Long-term activity monitoring in daily living is a promising approach to provide individuals with quantitative feedback that can encourage healthier habits. Although several studies have attempted automating dietary monitoring using wearable, handheld, smart-object, and environmental systems, it remains an open research problem. This ...

Abstract A rare case combining pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum, pneumopericardium, pneumoperitoneum, pneumorrhachis, air in retroperitoneum and extensive subcutaneous emphysema simultaneously in a severely anorectic male with BMI 9.2 (22.8 kg) and multiple vomitings is presented. This unusual condition was treated successfully with conservative medical approach in a specialized somatic unit for anorexia nervosa.

A 25-year-old woman presented to the emergency department after 17 h of persistent epigastric pain, severe abdominal distention and profuse vomiting. The vomitus had no blood or bile. No passing of stool or gas was evident after onset of symptoms. She had a 10-year history of untreated anorexia nervosa. The patient was afebrile, agitated and refused abdominal palpations upon physical examination. Full blood count, general biochemistry, amylase and lipase results were unremarkable. Abdominal X-ray showed gastroptosis, gastric emphysema and retention causing bowel displacement and obstruction and intestinal pneumatosis (Figu...
