Detection of tick-borne infection in Morgellons disease patients by serological and molecular techniques.

Conclusion: The study demonstrates an association between MD and positive tests for both Bb and RFB spirochetes. In conjunction with previous studies, our study provides corroborative evidence linking MD to Borrelia infection and tick-borne illness. PMID: 30519067 [PubMed]

Biliary brushing cytology has become the standard of practice for the investigation of strictures of the biliary and pancreatic duct systems. The methodology however has a limitation in that it has low diagnostic sensitivity when only cytologic evaluation is used. A number of testing methodologies have been applied to brushing specimens in an attempt to improve overall sensitivity without loss of specificity. These have included DNA ploidy analysis, immunocytochemistry, individual gene mutational analysis, fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH), and next generation sequencing (NGS). Currently, FISH coupled with routine ...

Authors: Yu W, Yu H, Ling J, Du J, Yin Z, Li C, Zhou M Abstract Gastrointestinal foreign bodies are commonly encountered in clinical practice. However, although perforation of the gastrointestinal tract by a foreign body is not unusual, the formation of a hepatic abscess as a result of the migration of a foreign body is extremely rare. Patients usually present with atypical symptoms, and the treatment of such pyogenic liver abscesses presents a challenge. Here we report a case of hepatic abscess secondary to stomach perforation by a fish bone. PMID: 31104804 [PubMed - in process]

Listen to the Podcast or Read the Transcript [00:00:03] Hi I’m Dr. Alan Greene pediatrician and I’d like to talk with you tonight about The Brain Stage. [00:00:10] I remember vividly when I was a pediatric resident in training go to a Grand Rounds about a surprising topic. [00:00:18] The function of the brain and the function of the skin and one of the things that dermatologists talked about was a common procedure freezing warts. Freezing warts was then, and is still, one of the most common ways to get rid of warts. What she talked about was how wildly different the results were in different studies. People use...

AbstractPurposeA high intake of marine n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) might improve cardiovascular (CV) health. We conducted a cross-sectional study to investigate associations between plasma phospholipid levels of marine n-3 PUFAs and CV risk factors, educational level, physical activity and smoking habits.MethodsA total of 3706 individuals from a general population, all born in 1950 and residing in Akershus County, Norway, were included in this study. The main statistical approach was multivariable adjusted linear regression.ResultsPlasma marine n-3 PUFA levels ranged from 2.7 to 20.3  wt%, with a median le...

AbstractThe archerfish, which is unique in its ability to hunt insects above the water level by shooting a jet of water at its prey, operates in a complex visual environment. The fish needs to quickly select one object from among many others. In animals other than the archerfish, long-range inhibition is considered to drive selection. As a result of long-range inhibition, a potential target outside a neuron ’s receptive field suppresses the activity elicited by another potential target within the receptive field. We tested whether a similar mechanism operates in the archerfish by recording the activity of neurons in ...
