This article employs a paediatric case study, involving a 3-year-old child who had an anaphylactic reaction that occurred as a result of the multidisciplinary team's failure to identify and acknowledge the patient's documented 'known allergy' status. It examines and reconsiders the ongoing healthcare dilemma of medication errors and recommends that known allergy status should be considered the second medication administration 'right' before the prescribing, transcribing, dispensing and administration of any drug. Identifying and documenting drug allergy status is particularly important when caring for paediatric patients, ...

Conclusions: Age should not be a limiting factor when choosing AVF as the preferred HD access. Brachiocephalic AVF has better primary and secondary patency with higher overall median survival. However RCF also provides reasonably good survival rates with acceptable complications in elderly population. Thrombosis and fistulas that fail to mature present as a primary concern to patients in elderly population, and demand further study.

Publication date: Available online 12 November 2019Source: Food ControlAuthor(s): Maria Assunta Meli, Donatella Desideri, Paolo Battisti, Isabella Giardina, Daniela Gorietti, Carla RoselliAbstractActivity concentration of natural radionuclides and 137Cs were estimated in 28 honeys purchased from large supermarket chains in Italy. Uranium, polonium and thorium were measured by alpha spectrometry, 40K and 137Cs by gamma spectrometry and 226Ra by liquid scintillation. The concentrations were 50.6±46.3, 0.023±0.010, 0.019±0.017, 0.27±0.40 Bqkg-1 for 40K, 238U, 234U and 210Po respectively. 235U, 228T...

Publication date: Available online 12 November 2019Source: Process BiochemistryAuthor(s): Boqin Zhang, Dandan Xu, Changqing Duan, Guoliang YanAbstract2-Phenylethyl acetate (2-PEA) is a desired aroma compound in wine due to its honey- and flowery-like characteristics. The effects of adding L-phenylalanine (Phe) during 2-PEA production were investigated in the co-fermentation of Hanseniaspora vineae (HV6) and Saccharomyces cerevisiae BDX. BDX and HV6 strains overproduced 2-phenylethyl alcohol (2-PE) and 2-PEA, respectively. The co-fermentation of BDX and HV6 achieved a 14.9 fold increase in 2-PEA odour activity value (OAV) b...

Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) is a rare non-Langerhans cell histiocytic proliferation that occurs in nodal and extranodal sites. Rare examples of the disease involving the digestive system have been described. To characterize the digestive tract manifestations of this disease, 12 specimens from 11 patients with extranodal RDD affecting the digestive organs were analyzed. Hematoxylin and eosin sections and available immunohistochemical stains were reviewed, and the clinical information was obtained from patients’ electronic or submitted records. Eight patients were female and 3 male (median age, 65 y; range, 17 t...

Authors: Ikuno T, Ito S, Inoue T Abstract Mast cells are key players in the inflammatory response with an important role in allergic reactions and are therefore useful for assessing the risk of anaphylaxis. However, they are difficult to isolate due to their low abundance and wide distribution. To overcome this, we generated and characterized mast cell-like cells derived from human induced pluripotent stem (hiPS) cells. These hiPS cell-derived mast cells (hiPS-MCs) were generated using recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 4 (BMP4), vascular endothelial growth factor 165 (VEGF), stem cell factor (SCF), inter...

‚ÄčA 25-year-old woman presented with a rash, and reported that she was in South Carolina when she felt a stinging sensation. That was followed by blisters on her foot.She noticed swelling of her foot, and had continued pain. She took pictures of the bite on days two and six. (Below.) She reported that she had a similar sting the previous summer. She said she had no fever, shortness of breath, or dizziness. Her vital signs were a temperature of 98.6°F, a heart rate of 80 bpm, a blood pressure of 100/60 mm Hg, a respiratory rate of 16 bpm, and an SPO2 of 100% on room air.She was alert and in no distress. Her oropharynx ...
