We examined data from various studies in India and elsewhere using generic DAAs, and evaluated whether they are equally efficacious as the branded drugs. Since the availability of generic DAAs in the Indian market, there is a lot of real life data as well as prospective studies in special patient populations such as hematological disorders (thalassemia and hemophilia), chronic kidney disease, hemodialysis patients, post liver and renal transplant patients on immunosuppression, intravenous drug users, confections and other high risk groups. Control of HCV infection in India requires multi pronged approach. There is a need t...

Conclusions: These noninvasive assays may be useful for monitoring the health status of nonhuman primate recipients of pig organ grafts and may help in management after xenotransplantation. Tocilizumab and NF-κB inhibitors might prove valuable in reducing the inflammatory response to a pig xenograft.

Conclusion: This case may illustrate a resemblance in the renal glomerulus basement membrane and retinal pigment epithelium–Bruch membrane complex, because the authors observed deposits of excess monoclonal kappa chains manifesting as extracellular, proteinaceous aggregates on the basement membrane of the glomerulus, and striking, globular subretinal deposits that overlay a thickened retinal pigment epithelium–Bruch membrane complex. The ocular lesions' refractoriness to intravitreal treatments could be attributed to the fact that they represent proteinaceous aggregates similar to those documented in the glomer...

Systemic organ condition should be considered before implantation of left ventricular assist device (LVAD) as a bridge to cardiac transplantation. It is, nevertheless, difficult to evaluate the reversibility of organ function such as kidney and liver which are directly affected by hemodynamics. We experienced a 44-year old woman with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease who was also diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy. She also had moderately impaired renal function (serum creatinine level: 1.8  mg/dL).

ABSTRACT The positive impact of delayed kidney transplantation (KT) on patient survival for combined liver‐KT (CLKT) has already been demonstrated by our group. The purpose of this study is to identify whether the quality of the kidneys (based on KDPI) or the delayed approach KT contributes to improved patient survival. 130 CLKT were performed between 2002‐2015; 69 with simultaneous KT (Group S) and 61 with delayed KT (Group D) (performed as a second operation with a mean cold ischemia time [CIT] of 50±15h). All patients were categorized according to the KDPI score; 1‐33%, 34‐66%, and 67‐99%. Recipient and...

ANISH KOKA MD In an age where big data is king and doctors are urged to treat populations, the journey of one man still has much to tell us. This is a tale of a man named Joe. Joseph Carrigan was a bear of a man – though his wife would say he was more teddy than bear.  He loved guitar playing,  and camp horror movies.  Those who knew him well said he had a kind heart, a quick wit and loved cats. I knew none of these things when I met Joe in the Emergency Department on a Sunday afternoon.  I had been called because of an abnormal electrocardiogram – the ER team was worried he could be having ...

Abstract Dissemination of resistance to carbapenems among Enterobacteriaceae through plasmids is an increasingly important concern in health care worldwide. Here we report the first description of an IncX3 plasmid carrying the blaKPC-3 gene in a strain of Serratia marcescens isolated from a kidney-liver transplanted patient at the transplantation centre ISMETT (Istituto Mediterraneo per i Trapianti e Terapie ad Alta Specializzazione, Palermo, Italy). To localize the transposable element containing the resistance-associated gene Next-Generation Sequencing of the bacterial DNA was performed. S. marcescens was positi...
