Conclusions: The results of our study demonstrated that DJ stent removal within 14 days did not reduce the risk of UTI when compared to stent removal after 14 days. Similar effects on complication rates for ureteral stenting for these 2 removal periods were observed. PMID: 30899293 [PubMed]

Authors: Martins RM, Teodoro JS, Furtado E, Rolo AP, Palmeira CM, Tralhão JG Abstract Background/Aims: We measured changes in mitochondrial function and bioenergetics that occur during ischemia/ reperfusion in fresh liver samples of patients undergoing liver transplantation. These variations correlated with markers of liver function and clinical outcome. Ischemia/reperfusion injury related to liver transplantation affects mitochondrial function and bioenergetics. Experimental studies were conducted to identify the role of bioenergetics and mitochondrial dysfunction. To the best of our knowledge, no investiga...

CONCLUSION: Compared with a laboratory-based assay, the point-of-care assay that utilizes GTS-7000® is accurate and rapid despite being slightly more expensive. Further trials using this assay are warranted.

Khadeer Ahmed, A.M.S. Abdul MajidAbstractThe promising biomedical applications of silver complexes stimulated the researchers to test these compounds against cancer. The present research work was designed to achieve this goal. In this work, a series of 5-methyl benzimidazole based N-Heterocyclic carbene ligands and respective silver(I) complexes were synthesized and tested on cancer cell lines to assess their anticancer activity. Unsymmetrica...

The risk of all-cause, cardiovascular and liver disease-related mortality was regarded as the most reliab...

We report a case of A. hydrophila peritonitis in a 56-year-old male on automated PD. Peritonitis may have been caused by contamination of the Set Plus, a component of the automated peritoneal dialysis device. Although Set Plus is disposable, the patient reused the product by cleansing with tap water. He was successfully treated with intraperitoneally-administered ceftazidime and has been well without recurrence for more than 2 years. PMID: 30899312 [PubMed]
