Authors: Bodilsen J, Brouwer MC, Nielsen H, van de Beek D Abstract INTRODUCTION: Brain abscess is an uncommon and potentially life-threatening infection of the CNS that can be caused by a range of different pathogens including bacteria, fungi and parasites. A multidisciplinary approach is important and anti-infective treatment remains crucial. Here, we review anti-infective treatment of brain abscess. Areas covered: We used the terms '(Brain abscess[ti] AND (antibiotic* OR treatment)) NOT case report'), to conduct a search in the PubMed. Additional papers were identified by cross-reference checking and by browsing ...

On the basis of increasing scientific evidence, indications for these established therapeuti...

Authors: Pleines I, Cherpokova D, Bender M Abstract Megakaryocytes differentiate from hematopoietic stem cells in the bone marrow. The transition of megakaryocytes to platelets is a complex process. Thereby, megakaryocytes extend proplatelets into sinusoidal blood vessels, where the proplatelets undergo fission to release platelets. Defects in platelet production can lead to a low platelet count (thrombocytopenia) with increased bleeding risk. Rho GTPases comprise a family of small signaling G proteins that have been shown to be master regulators of the cytoskeleton controlling many aspects of intracellular process...

We report a 60‐year‐old man with late‐onset signs of cutaneous porphyria and accumulation in urine, plasma and faeces of type I porphyrin isomers characteristic of CEP. Analysis of DNA from peripheral leucocytes, skin and bone marrow aspirate showed that he was a heterozygous carrier of a Cys73Arg (c.217 T>C) mutation within UROS. Sequencing of cDNA from peripheral blood confirmed heterozygosity and expression of the normal allele. Measurement of UROS enzymatic activity in erythrocytes showed values ~70% of normal, indirectly indicating expression of the normal allele. Differently from other cases of late‐onset ...
