Authors: Morishita S, Nakano J, Fu JB, Tsuji T Abstract Many studies have reported that physical exercise can improve the levels of function, quality of life (QoL), and fatigue in patients with hematologic malignancies. However, exercises should be prescribed with caution in patients with thrombocytopenia to prevent exercise-related bleeding. Some studies have suggested threshold platelet counts at which physical exercise can safely be performed. Herein, we review the current literature to determine the platelet count thresholds and types of physical exercise that may be prescribed to reduce the risk of exercise-re...

ConclusionsCervical cancer screening rates amongst CAF members are currently below recommended guidelines and appear to be declining. These trends mirror those observed more widely in the general Canadian population, and may be a consequence of recent changes to guidelines for both cervical cancer and human papillomavirus (HPV) screening.

Publication date: April 2020Source: Cancer Epidemiology, Volume 65Author(s): Ahmed Arafa, Ehab S. Eshak, Tarek A. Abdel Rahman, Manal M. AnwarAbstractBackgroundA growing body of evidence has suggested an association between Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and risk of pancreatic cancer (PAC). Herein, we conducted a meta-analysis of available evidence to explore this association.MethodsWe systematically retrieved studies that investigated the association between HCV infection and risk of PAC. Pooled odds ratio (OR) with corresponding 95 % confidence interval (CI) of PAC for patients with HCV infection was calculated using ...

Conclusion: The findings, such as the inverse relationship with tuberculosis treatment discontinuation in the group of people with comorbidity, reinforce the importance of integrated actions in health services to change the scenario of this challenging comorbidity.

Objective: The aim of the study is to assess the efficacy and safety of associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) in patients with hepatitis B virus-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Background: ALPSS allows curative resection of conventionally-unresectable liver tumors. However, its role in HCC is largely unknown. Methods: Consecutive HCC patients who underwent ALPPS at our center between April 2013 and September 2017 were retrospectively studied. The oncological results were compared with patients receiving transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE), and patien...

An estimated 4.1 million people in the United States are infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV). In 2014, the Hepatitis C Community Alliance to Test and Treat (HepCCATT) collaborative was formed to address hepatitis C in Chicago. From 2014 to 2017, the HepCCATT Case Management Program case managed 181 HCV-infected people and performed on-site capacity building at a 6-site community health center (CHC) that produced codified protocols, which were translated into a telehealth program to build capacity within CHCs to deliver hepatitis C care. HepCCATT's innovative approach to addressing multilevel barriers is a potential model...

The prevalence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) in the homeless population is underestimated despite multiple behavioral risks. Data from a sample of 534 homeless adults from downtown Los Angeles were analyzed to examine the prevalence and predictors of HBV infection in this community. The prevalence of HBV was 7 to 10 times higher than in the US general population rate. Opiate dependence, injection and noninjection use, was an independent predictor of HBV exposure. Testing and counseling occurred at significantly lower rates for HBV than for human immunodeficiency virus. Findings emphasize the need to enhance screening and coun...

Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is an immune-mediated disease; it has been reported to be associated with several diseases. The data on ITP in patients with hepatitis B, tuberculosis, or thyroid diseases are relatively scarce. In addition, these diseases are not rare in Taiwan, together with hepatitis C and Helicobacter pylori which are also related to ITP.

Authors: Franchini M, Veneri D, Lippi G Abstract INTRODUCTION: Acquired thrombocytopenia recognizes a myriad of causes. Among these, infectious diseases play a relevant role since a low platelet count is commonplace along with other abnormal laboratory data. Areas covered: This narrative review, after a brief presentation of the possible pathogenic mechanisms, is focused on the most prevalent infections associated with thrombocytopenia, namely those attributable to hepatitis C virus (HCV), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and Helicobacter pylori. Expert commentary: An underlying HCV or HIV infection should always...
