Publication date: Available online 23 February 2018 Source:Progress in Retinal and Eye Research Author(s): Machelle T. Pardue, Rachael S. Allen Diseases that affect the eye, including photoreceptor degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma, affect 11.8 million people in the US, resulting in vision loss and blindness. Loss of sight affects patient quality of life and puts an economic burden both on individuals and the greater healthcare system.

Privately held IDx is developing an artificial intelligence-based system that could help with the diagnosis diabetic retinopathy – a disease that leads to blindness if undetected. The company met its endpoints in a pivotal trial of the IDx-DR system. The trial involved 900 diabetes patients at 10 sites. The study was designed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of the technology in detecting moderate to severe diabetic retinopathy, including macular edema. The results of the pivotal trial met the study hypotheses that were developed in consultation with FDA and demonstrated the IDx-DR system exceeded these performanc...

Neuropathic itch is a pathological condition that is due to damage within the nervous system. This type of itch can be severe and unrelenting, which has a very negative impact on quality of life. Neuropathic itch is more common than generally appreciated because most types of neuropathic pain have a neuropathic itch counterpart. Unfortunately, much like neuropathic pain, there is a lack of effective treatments for neuropathic itch. Here, we consider the neural basis of itch and then describe how injuries within these neural circuits can lead to neuropathic itch in both animal models and human disease states.

View Original Article Here: How Long Does Shingles Last In The Elderly? Shingles is a viral infection that follows a varicella-zoster infection, although it can take decades for symptoms of the secondary disease to emerge.

AbstractAutoimmune subepidermal blistering diseases of the skin and mucosae constitute a large group of sometimes devastating diseases, encompassing bullous pemphigoid, gestational pemphigoid, mucous membrane pemphigoid, epidermolysis bullosa acquisita, and anti-p200 pemphigoid. Their clinical presentation is polymorphic. These autoimmune blistering diseases are associated with autoantibodies that target distinct components of the basement membrane zone of stratified epithelia. These autoantigens represent structural proteins important for maintenance of dermo-epidermal integrity. Bullous pemphigoid (BP) is the most common...

Growing up during the 1970’s and 80’s, Little House on the Prairie was an iconic part of my childhood.  Doc Baker was the physician and veterinarian for all of Walnut Grove, in spite of limited resources.  Medical lessons were everywhere in the beloved television series:  Mary experiencing onset of blindness (most recently attributed to viral meningoencephalitis, likely from measles), the death of Laura’s infant son by unknown cause, and Rose’s survival after smallpox infection. When patients ask me how to start solid foods, how to get a baby to sleep through the night, or how to trea...
