CONCLUSIONS: In 92.6% of patients, pancreatic tissues with>5 HPFs were obtained by EUS-FNA using a 22-G needle. In 63% of patients, histology was evaluated to be ≥ level 2 according to the ICDC. The study indicates that EUS-FNA with a 22-G needle is valuable in the histopathological diagnosis of AIP. PMID: 30422724 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Changes in hippocampal function are believed to play a role in the onset of psychosis. Astudy published today inJAMA Psychiatry suggests that the concentration of the neurotransmitter glutamate and several other metabolites in the hippocampus may offer clues about patients who are most likely to transition to psychosis.The findings suggest that measuring hippocampal metabolites could help psychiatrists better predict outcomes in patients at risk of developing psychosis.For the study, Matthijs G. Bossong, Ph.D., of the University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands and colleagues used an imaging technique known as pro...

In this study, we aimed to evaluate the predictive value of ONSD for specific head injury on initial cranial tomography. METHODS: CT scans of 176 patients with a known intracranial pathology were retrospectively analyzed and compared with normal control CTs of 182 patients presented to ED at the same time interval. The attending radiologist analyzed all initial brain CT scans and randomly sampled control CTs were similarly assessed by the second senior radiologist whom were blind to the patients' medical histories and circumstances of TBI at the time of measurement. ONSD was measured at a distance of 3 mm behind the ey...

The decomposition conditions of methane hydrate were determined in a quartz sand-brine mixing system, using an isothermal, stepwise, depressurising method. Influencing factors, such as sand particle size and pore water salt ...

Odewunmi, Abdel-Nasser Kawde, Mohamed IbrahimAbstractA proficient and cost-effective electrochemical method for the determination of DL-methionine (DLM) has been successfully developed. The in-situ single-step AgO modification of the graphite pencil electrode (GPE) was characterized by Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FE-SEM), Energy Dispersed X-ray (EDX), X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), and cyclic voltammetry. The electrocatalytic activity of the silver ions in 0.10 M NaOH (pH 13.7&thins...
