Authors: Amzil K, Hamadi F, Latrache H, Mimouni R, Abou Oualid H, Azelmad K, Saidi A, Elboulani A, Mabrouki M Abstract The biofilm formation on the surfaces which are in direct contact with food products might lead to their contamination and, consequently, present serious health problems for the consumers. The goals of the present work were to study P. aeruginosa biofilm formation on two granites and to investigate the efficiency of sodium hypochlorite (NaCLO) against the same biofilm formed on these substrata using the plate count method (PCM) and epifluorescence microscopy (EP). More biofilm cells adhered to Rosa...

Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) is the second most common form of dementia and is assumed to be often under- or misdiagnosed, especially in early stages. Here we present a complex case of probable DLB with major depression and alcohol and benzodiazepine dependence in which DLB was ruled out initially. This case highlights the challenging diagnostic workup of DLB patients. Core clinical features can be missing and indicative biomarkers can be negative, especially in early stages of the disease. Initially, Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography as well as neuropsychological assessment were suspicious for a possible ...

ConclusionFDG-PET/CT may steer the diagnosis (particularly thanks to a relatively high PPV and value of semiquantitative measurements), but cannot always classify vertebral bone lesions as malignant or benign with sufficient certainty. In these cases, biopsy and/or follow-up remain necessary to establish a final diagnosis.

Conclusions The cerebral metabolic rate of oxygen changes in peritumoral and normal contralateral regions were similar between ephedrine- and phenylephrine-treated patients. In the normal contralateral region, ephedrine was associated with an increase in cerebral blood flow and regional cerebral oxygen saturation compared with phenylephrine.Editor ’s PerspectiveWhat We Already Know about This TopicPhenylepherine may reduce regional cerebral oxygen saturation in anesthetized patients without cerebral pathology when compared with ephedrineWhat This Article Tells Us That Is NewIn adult patients with brain tumors, there ...

CONCLUSIONS: Hanging is a common mechanism of self-harm. It is associated with significant injuries and mortality. The acute management of hanging should focus on airway protection followed by detailed imaging of the head and neck. Further work must attempt to include mortuary data on hanging.
