Smartwatch aids time-based prospective memory in Korsakoff syndrome: a case study.
Smartwatch aids time-based prospective memory in Korsakoff syndrome: a case study. Neurocase. 2019 Apr 10;:1-5 Authors: Lloyd B, Oudman E, Altgassen M, Postma A Abstract Prospective memory (PM) is the ability to remember to carry out an intention in the future. PM is particularly impaired in Korsakoff syndrome (KS). We investigated the benefit of a smartwatch and smartphone compared to no aid in supporting time accuracy and PM task performance in KS. Time accuracy was improved with a smartwatch compared to the other conditions. Furthermore, the smartwatch and phone conditions were more effective than no aid in assisting memory for task content. Together these results suggest that using an external memory aid is beneficial for successful PM in KS. PMID: 30966873 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: This report demonstrates that the streamlined, algorithmic approach effectively identified HIV infections in this large cluster-randomized trial. Longitudinal HIV testing (all participants, all visits) and quality control testing provided useful data on the frequency of errors and provided more accurate data for HIV incidence estimates.

Compared to those without the AIDS-causing virus, people with HIV had a 34% higher rate of COPD and were diagnosed with the lung disease about 12 years earlier -- average age 50 versus 62, the investigators found.
Authors: Vardell E Abstract The Global Health Observatory Data Repository is the publicly available interface for the World Health Organization's health-related statistics for the 194 countries that are Member States. It includes statistics for over 1,000 indicators including mortality, child nutrition, maternal health, HIV/AIDS, environmental health, equity, and more. This overview explains the variety of ways that users can access and browse WHO's health-related statistics. PMID: 32069199 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionA comparative high-resolution analysis of B*35Px or B*35Py alleles among healthy controls and HIV+ individuals showed an overrepresentation of HLA-B*35Px alleles in the healthy Indian gene pool (58%) and in the HIV+ cohort (70%). The most common B*35 subtype found among the HIV infected subjects was B*3503/55 (20%; Px group), followed by B*3501 (10%; Py group). Our study concludes that the Indian gene pool possesses higher frequency of B*35Px alleles.

Vascular malformations associated with genetic mutations are rare and patient presentation can be complex. Misdiagnosis in this patient population is not uncommon. Time-resolved magnetic resonance angiography (TR-MRA) provides essential information about flow dynamics of a malformation that aids in establishing the correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment planning.
This study is designed to evaluate single-center experience in postprocedural follow-up CXR after PLB and to compare utility of single vs. serial CXRs post PLB.
