Day hospital in internal medicine: A chance for ambulatory care.

CONCLUSION: In the ambulatory shift advocated by the authorities, this experience shows that internal medicine should engage in the recognition of day-hospital as a place for diagnosis and synthesis reviews connected with the city while leaving the general practitioners coordinator of their patient care. This activity of synthesis in day-hospital is useful for the patients and efficient for our healthcare system. PMID: 29673918 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Population-based health registries can be valuable resources for public health research, particularly for studying rare diseases and long-term health outcomes, where more traditional observational and experimental designs often have insufficient sample size or follow-up time to adequately address the research question(s) of interest. In this issue, Tith et al demonstrate the utility of one such health registry for asking questions that are difficult to answer using more traditional study designs. Using hospitalization records for Quebec, Canada, from 2006 to 2018, they found that women who had been hospitalized for bulimia...

However, the rapid evolution of NGS technologies has outpaced its clinical adoption. Here, we re-evaluate the critical steps in the clinical application of NGS-based genetic testing from an informatics perspective. We suggest a ‘fit-for-purpose’ triage of current NGS technologies. We also point out potential shortcomings in the clinical management of genetic variants an...

For some complex rare diseases, precision medicine approach is further required to stratify patients into homogeneous subgroups based on the clinical, biological or molecular features. In s...

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), mainly caused by structural abnormalities of type I collagen, is a hereditary rare disease characterized by increased bone fragility and reduced bone mass. Clinical manifestations of OI mostly include multiple repeated bone fractures, thin skin, blue sclera, hearing loss, cardiovascular and pulmonary system abnormalities, triangular face, dentinogenesis imperfecta (DI), and walking with assistance. Currently, 20 causative genes with 18 subtypes have been identified for OI, of them, variations in COL1A1 and COL1A2 have been demonstrated to be major causative factors to OI. However, the complexi...
