Spotlight on Campylobacter hepaticus, the cause of Spotty Liver Disease in layers.

Spotlight on Campylobacter hepaticus, the cause of Spotty Liver Disease in layers. Avian Pathol. 2019 Apr 03;:1-9 Authors: Moore RJ, Scott PC, Hao Van TT Abstract Campylobacter hepaticus was recently identified as the aetiological agent of Spotty Liver Disease (SLD). SLD causes significant health and productivity losses in the Australian egg industry and the disease is present in other countries. Following the isolation and characterisation of C. hepaticus, molecular tools and refined culturing methods have been developed to identify the pathogen. It is suspected that application of these tools will lead to identification of the pathogen in many poultry production systems throughout the world. As C. hepaticus has only recently been identified, little is known about the mechanisms of pathogenesis and hence new research needs to be directed towards understanding SLD epidemiology and C. hepaticus virulence mechanisms to inform efforts to develop intervention strategies.

Objectives The goals of this study were to compare the efficacy of the new manganese-based magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent Mn-PyC3A to the commercial gadolinium-based agents Gd-DOTA and to Gd-EOB-DTPA to detect tumors in murine models of breast cancer and metastatic liver disease, respectively, and to quantify the fractional excretion and elimination of Mn-PyC3A in rats. Methods T1-weighted contrast-enhanced MRI with 0.1 mmol/kg Mn-PyC3A was compared with 0.1 mmol/kg Gd-DOTA in a breast cancer mouse model (n = 8) and to 0.025 mmol/kg Gd-EOB-DTPA in a liver metastasis mouse model (n = 6). The fractional...

ConclusionPRP and vaginal laser appear to be promising alternative treatments for urinary incontinence with potential reduction in cost to both the patient and national health systems without any complications or side-effects. However, the true efficacy of these modalities need to be examined in an RCT setting.

Authors: Avinash M, Renjith KR, Shetty AP, Sharma V, Kanna RM, Rajasekaran S Abstract Study design: Prospective study. Purpose: Last decade has witnessed the emergence of unplanned readmissions as a tool to gauge health-care quality and hospital performance. Previous studies were limited by their retrospective designs based on data-base information and short-term 30-day follow-up intervals. We analyzed incidence and causes for unplanned readmissions following spine surgery at 90-d interval and its difference at 30-d, 31-60-d and 61-90-d intervals, Total Bed-Days Lost (TBL) and economic impact of readmissions an...

ConclusionBBD could prevent and cure hepatic encephalopathy derived from both chronic and acute liver diseases. Here, we found that except for the direct improvement of blood and brain ammonia level, inflammation is likely an important target of BBD to treat hepatic encephalopathy. The anti-inflammatory role of BBD may lie in its regulation of the TLR4/MyD88/NF-κ B pathways.Graphical abstractBBD can prevent and cure hepatic encephalopathy derived from both chronic and acute liver diseases. BBD can reduce hyperammonemia as well as the systematic and neurological inflammation. Inflammation is likely an important target...

By JESSICA DaMASSA, WTF HEALTH A few weeks ago, WTF Health took the show on the road to Australia’s digital health conference, HIC 2019. We captured more than 30 interviews (!) from the conference, which is run by the Health Informatics Society of Australia (hence the HISA Studio branding) and I had the opportunity to chat with most of the Australian Digital Health Agency’s leadership, many administrators from the country’s largest health systems, and a number of health informaticians, clinicians, and patients. I’ll be spotlighting a few of my favorites here in a four-part series to give you a fl...
