Does Helicobacter pylori infection play a role in susceptibility to Brucellosis?

This study aimed to determine the relationship between brucellosis and Helicobacter pylori. In this case-control study, 100 patients with brucellosis as ceases and 200 participants without brucellosis as controls were evaluated. To compare the prevalence of Helicobacter pylori in the two groups, odds ratio and confidence intervals for every variable were analyzed through using logistic regression model after adjustment for confounding factors. The results obtained in patients with brucellosis showed that fever, sweating and joint pain were the most prevalent clinical symptoms among the studied patients; in addition, compared with the control group, there was a significant relationship between the IgM antibody to Helicobacter pylori and brucellosis infection (P=0.001). Taking into account a 95% confidence interval, the estimated odds ratio was 2.74 (CI95%: 1.5 - 4.9). Acute infection with Helicobacter pylori was associated with brucellosis and increased the risk of brucellosis infection. PMID: 28890508 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to develop a novel scale, predicting the need for Delayed Intubation after inhalation injury (PDI) score.MethodsWe retrospectively identified patients with inhalation injury at four tertiary care centers in Japan between 2012 and 2018. We included patients aged 15 or older and excluded those intubated within 30 min after hospital arrival. Predictors for delayed intubation were identified with univariate analyses and scored on the basis of odds ratios. The PDI score was evaluated with the area under the receiver operating characteristic (AUROC) curve and compared with other scaling systems for burn injuries...

Evidences suggest that identifying the reasons for not following the oral health behaviors, can improve the oral health status through evidence based interventions. The aim of this study was developing a model to explain the predictors of oral health behaviors in primary school girl students Based on the health ...

However, more patients in the early-stage group achieved an MMT score>5 compared with those in the late-stage surgery group (80% versus 45%; p = 0.03). Furthermore, the recovery rate of JOA scores was significantly higher in the earl...

Adults who experience pain are more likely to use cannabis without a prescription and have cannabis use disorder than those without pain, according to astudy published yesterday inAJP in Advance.“These results suggest that, among adults with pain, frequent nonmedical cannabis use and cannabis use disorder are growing problems,” wrote Deborah S. Hasin, Ph.D., of the New York State Psychiatric Institute and colleagues. “[T]he need remains for other interventions to manage pain that do n ot incur risk of another substance use disorder (i.e., cannabis use disorder) as an adverse treatment outcome.”Hasin...

Conclusions: Clinical, laboratory and radiological features of histoplasmosis can mimic other conditions, resulting in unnecessary invasive diagnostic procedures. However, a history of travel to endemic areas and of exposure to risk factors (such as visits to caves and presence of bats) should trigger the clinical suspicion of histoplasmosis. Treatment may be indicated in severe or prolonged disease. PMID: 31959091 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: The only sex difference was in SCM thickness. However, smaller SCMs in women did not result in less SCM SWE stiffness. We provided normative values for US-based imaging of the cervical-flexor and -extensor muscles in young and athletic men and women. PMID: 31967864 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Potgieter, Boitumelo B. Maboko, Abdalla A. Latif, Ben J. MansAbstractThe Theileria are apicomplexan parasites transmitted by ticks to vertebrate hosts. Most Theileria species exhibit some form of host or vector specificity, since under endemic conditions only a limited number of tick species act as vectors and not all vertebrate hosts are able to maintain a persistent carrier state. Data for Theileria sp. (buffalo) suggest host ...
