DiscussionTo date, there is no evidence-based consensus on how to manage patients undergoing burr-hole drainage for cSDH who are under ASA treatment. Therefore, the decision to maintain or interrupt ASA treatment is based mostly on the surgeons ’ preference. A randomized placebo-controlled study for this frequent question is urgently needed in order to provide class I evidence for the best possible treatment of this large group of patients.Trial Initial Release: 19.04.2017. Study protocol: V2_23.02.2017

AbstractRecently, dysregulated expression of various micro RNAs has been reported in hematologic malignancies, especially AML disease which affects normal hematopoiesis in these patients and thereby contribute to clinical outcome of AML patients, associated with either poor or favorable prognosis. Herein, we evaluated the expression of miR-181b and miR-222 in acute myeloid leukemia patients and correlation with response to therapy after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Eighty newly diagnosed AML patients and 80 healthy controls were recruited. The expression of miR-181b and miR-222 was evaluated by real-time SYBR G...

AbstractIntroductionHome use of misoprostol for medical abortion is increasingly being practiced. With gestational length up until 70 days, it is considered effective, safe and acceptable by women. Knowledge of safety and efficacy with higher gestational lengths is limited and studies are required in order to further expand women's options to include this method of abortion.Material and methodsA retrospective cohort study was designed to compare home use of misoprostol for medical abortion at gestational length 64 ‐76 days to its use at 57‐63 days. Primary outcome was success rate. Success was defined as complete uteri...

We describe basic principles of epidemic control in the context of HIV and identify a number of attainable goals in terms of control and elimination of HIV in specific populations and risk groups, given currently available HIV prevention and treatment methods. Currently available HIV prevention methods make it a feasible goal to eliminate HIV transmission attributable to mother-to-child transmission and blood transfusions. Reductions in transmission attributable to sexual behavior and injection drug use are feasible, but elimination of these modes of transmission will require further advancements in behavioral and biomedic...

AbstractGastric cancer in patients is often associated with bleeding; when it occurs, especially in the presence of an anemia, a transfusion is necessary to avoid further deterioration of the patient ’s clinical state. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between the administration of peri-operative transfusions due to the anemia or the clinical status and the post-operative clinical outcomes. 188 patients diagnosed with of gastric cancer were recruited at Surgery 2 of the De partment of General and Specialist Surgery of the Tertiary Care Hospital “A. Cardarelli” of Naples. All patients ...

AbstractHepatitis B and C virus (HBV and HCV) reactivations have become more common following the intensive use of biological therapies for the treatment of chronic lymphoproliferative disorders (CLD). We evaluate risk factors for virus reactivation and exitus in patients diagnosed with CLD and HBV or HCV infection, undergoing rituximab-chemotherapy (R-chemo). A prospective, observational study in two tertiary-care Romanian hospitals, between December 2007 and May 2010, of patients diagnosed with CLD undergoing R-chemo. HBV and HCV serological markers, viral load, fibrosis and necroinflammation were assessed at baseline an...

Abstract The effects of changing hematocrit (Hct) on the rate of circulatory oxygen ([Formula: see text]) delivery were modeled analytically to describe transfusion of 0.5-3.0 units of packed red blood cells (pRBC, 300 mL/unit, 60% Hct) to anemic patients. In our model, Hct affects [Formula: see text] delivery to the microcirculation by changing blood [Formula: see text] carrying capacity and blood viscosity, which in turn affects blood flow velocity and, therefore, [Formula: see text] delivery. Changing blood velocity impacts the [Formula: see text] delivery by affecting the oxygen diffusive losses as blood trans...
