Attachment Patterns of Human and Avian Influenza Viruses to Trachea and Colon of 26 Bird Species – Support for the Community Concept
In conclusion, the reported results highlight the importance of AIV attachment to trachea in many avian species. Finally, the importance of chickens and mallards in AIVs dynamics was illustrated by the abundant AIV attachment observed. Introduction Influenza A viruses (IAVs) are pathogens of global concern in both human and veterinary medicine (Webster et al., 1992; Stöhr, 2002; Olsen et al., 2006; Wiethoelter et al., 2015). Wild birds are well-described hosts of avian influenza viruses (AIVs) and longitudinal surveillance studies have demonstrated a plethora of low pathogenic AIVs (LPAIVs) circulating in wild birds, particularly in dabbling ducks and other waterfowl (Krauss et al., 2004; Munster et al., 2007; Wallensten et al., 2007; Wille et al., 2011; Bahl et al., 2013; Huang et al., 2014; Arnal et al., 2015; Caron et al., 2017). Based on the wide host range it is suggested that IAVs are multi-host pathogens and there is clinical evidence of zoonotic transmission of either complete or reassorted AIVs to humans (Taubenberger et al., 1997; Fouchier et al., 2004; Garten et al., 2009; Watanabe et al., 2012; Qi et al., 2018). However, despite a large number of avian species screened in surveillance studies, there are only few species in which high AIV prevalence and subtype diversity is consistently detected (Krauss et al., 2004; Munster et al., 2007; Wallensten et al., 2007; Wille et al., 2011; Bahl et al., 2013; Huang et al., 2014; Arnal et al., 2015; Caron et al...
CONCLUSIONS: The causes of NVGIB are complex and the onset, location, risk, and clinical presentations are variable. NVGIB can be generally divided into three types: vascular abnormality, neoplastic disease, and iatrogenic condition. TAE is a safe, effective, and fast procedure in the management of gastrointestinal bleeding. PMID: 32650690 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that LPAC should be systematically suspected and investigated in patients with symptomatic cholelithiasis before age of thirty, but genetic testing should only be attempted in patients complying with the more stringent LPAC criteria.

CONCLUSION: The strategy of preemptive ESD and surgery for synchronous colorectal neoplasms is minimally invasive and has a favorable prognosis. PMID: 32650680 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Niriella MA, De Silva AP, Liyanage KI, Sarin SK, de Silva HJ Abstract While the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, we are beginning to understand the role the gastrointestinal tract plays in the disease and the impact of the infection on the care of patients with gastrointestinal (GI) and liver diseases. We review the data and understanding around the virus related to the digestive tract, impact of the pandemic on delivery of GI services and daily gastroenterology clinical practice, and the effects on patients with pre-existing GI diseases.

CONCLUSION: Among our HD patients, OCI is considered a comorbid finding associated with mild liver morbidity that warrants strict infection control and periodic testing for blood borne infections. PMID: 32649843 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Aleknonytė-Resch M, Freitag-Wolf S, International Inflammatory Bowel Disease Genetics Consortium, Schreiber S, Krawczak M, Dempfle A Abstract BACKGROUND: Gene-gene interactions (G × G) potentially play a role in the etiology of complex human diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and may partially explain their 'missing heritability'. METHODS: Using the largest genotype dataset available for IBD (16,636 Crohn's disease (CD) and 12,888 ulcerative colitis (UC) cases) we analyzed G × G with the powerful case-only (CO) design. We studied 169 single nu...
Authors: Yang B, Sun K, Hui Y, Zhu L, Wang S, Ma S, Yu Z, Zhao J, Liu Q, Zhao J, Chen X Abstract AIM: To investigate whether endoscopic treatment is applicable to American patients and explores the predictors of lymph node metastasis (LNM) in early gastric cancer (EGC). METHODS: Patients with EGC confined to either mucosa (T1a, n = 1799) and submucosa (T1b, n = 1689) were identified from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Result database. Multivariate logistic regression, Kaplan-Meier method, and univariate/multivariate Cox regression were used to assess the correlation between ...
Conclusions: Young PWID inject alone for a variety of reasons, putting them at increased risk of fatal overdose. These findings demonstrate that "don't use alone" messages may not be sufficient given the complex realities of PWID's injection practices. Harm reduction programs employing such messaging should also offer alternative options for overdose prevention/risk reduction for those who do inject alone.

Conclusions: Licensed healthcare professionals are punished differently for similar SUD-related offenses. Further research should explore these differences to identify evidenced based ways to protect the public while assisting this special at-risk population to recover from SUD.
