Conclusion: Given that the majority of surveyed physicians support MMJ as an option for patients, few are registered and have adequate knowledge of MMJ. Although our study sample is small and geographically limited, our survey results highlight key physician issues that are likely applicable to practitioners in other states. Concerted efforts are needed at the federal, state, and academic levels to provide practitioners with evidence-based guidelines for the safe use of MMJ. PMID: 29662957 [PubMed]

FATAL HONEY POISONING IN SOUTHWEST CHINA: A CASE SERIES OF 31 CASES. Southeast Asian J Trop Med Public Health. 2017 Jan;48(1):189-96 Authors: Zhang Q, Chen X, Chen S, Ye Y, Luo J, Li J, Yu S, Liu H, Liu Z Abstract Honey poisoning cases occur in southwestern China. In this case series, we attempted to determine the symptoms and causes of honey poisoning from 2007 to 2012 in southwestern China. We also conducted a quantitative melissopalynological analysis of honey samples. During the study period, 31 honey poisoning cases occurred in the study location, all during July to August. All the cases occurred ...

INVASIVE FUNGAL INFECTION AMONG FEBRILE PATIENTS WITH CHEMOTHERAPY-INDUCED NEUTROPENIA IN THAILAND. Southeast Asian J Trop Med Public Health. 2017 Jan;48(1):159-69 Authors: Phikulsod P, Suwannawiboon B, Chayakulkeeree M Abstract Invasive fungal infections (IFI) can cause serious morbidity and mortality among febrile patients with chemotherapy-induced neutropenia (CIN). In order to evaluate the incidence, treatment outcome and factors associated with IFI in this patient population in Thailand, we retrospectively reviewed the medical record of patients admitted to Siriraj Hospital from January 2008 to Ju...

We present 2 cases of scrub typhus with cholecystitis. The first patient is a 62 year old female who presented to the hospital with fever and body aches for 1 week and right upper quadrant abdominal pain for 3 days. She gave a history of an insect bite 2 weeks previously. She was diagnosed as having acute cholecystitis and underwent cholecystectomy. She continued with fever post-operatively and physical examination revealed an eschar. She had an immunofluorescence assay (IFA) performed that revealed a high IgM titer for Orientia tsutsugamushi. She was diagnosed as having scrub typhus, treated with doxycycline and she recov...

In this study, we examined the impact patient travel burden has on administration of prophylactic G-CSFs and the subsequent impact on FN incidence. METHODS: Medicare claims data were used to identify a cohort of beneficiaries age 65+ with non-myeloid cancers at high risk for FN between January 2012 and December 2014. Driving distance and time were calculated from patient residence ZIP code to the location of G-CSF and/or chemotherapy administration. Regression models were used to estimate the odds of G-CSF prophylaxis relative to patient driving distance and time, and odds of FN incidence relative to timing of G-CSF ad...

Authors: Chen D, Xu J, Zhang Q Abstract Survivin, which is highly expressed in the majority of tumors, but not in most normal adult tissues, has been identified to have significant clinical applications. In the present study, using survivin‑specific monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), we aimed to establish methods for detecting the expression of survivin in cancer cell lines, serum samples, urine samples and cancer tissues from patients with bladder cancer (BCa) and renal cell carcinoma (RCC), and to evaluate the efficacy of survivin as a tumor marker in the surveillance of BCa and RCC. First, mAbs were ...

The let-7 microRNA family is frequently downregulated in human cancers and its aberrant expression may be a useful marker fo...
