Authors: Druschky K, Bleich S, Grohmann R, Engel RR, Toto S, Neyazi A, Däubl B, Stübner S Abstract The aim of the study was to assess rates of severe parkinsonism related to different antipsychotic drugs (APDs) using data from an observational pharmacovigilance programme in German-speaking countries-Arzneimittelsicherheit in der Psychiatrie (AMSP). Data on APD utilization and reports of severe APD-induced parkinsonism were collected in 99 psychiatric hospitals in Austria, Germany and Switzerland during the period 2001-2016. Of 340,099 patients under surveillance, 245,958 patients were treated with APDs fo...

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there have now been153 reported cases of severe, acute lung disease caused by " vaping " across 19 states. Tragically, one of these cases resulted in a death. Most of the cases are occurring among youth or young adults. The acute disease appears to be taking the form of lipoid pnemonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and/or chemical pneumonitis.Physicians, health departments, and the CDC have almost uniformly informed the public that these cases are caused by " vaping " and have advised youth and young adults to avoid using " ...

In this study, biogenic lanthanum (La) nanoparticles were synthesized through ecofriendly green chemistry methodology. Mutingia calabura leaf extract was used for the synthesis of La nanoparticles. The synthesized La nanoparticles were characterized using FTIR, SEM and EDAX. Further, the nanoparticles were analysed for antibacterial activity, bacterial toxicity, antioxidant activity, blood compatibility and dye degradation efficiency. Well diffusion technique was used to study the antibacterial activity and antioxidant activity was evaluated using DPPH assay. Photocatalytic dye degradation study was carried out with Coomas...

AbstractBackgroundInfluenza is an acute viral respiratory illness that causes high morbidity and mortality globally. Therapeutic actions are limited to vaccines and a few anti-viral drugs.Polygala(P.) japonica herba is rich in Polygalasaponin F (PSF, C53H86O23), used for acute bronchitis, pharyngitis, pneumonia, amygdalitis, and respiratory tract infections treatment in China. Hypercytokinemia is often correlated with severe pneumonia caused by several influenza viruses. PSF was reported to have anti-inflammatory effects and its mechanism is associated with the nuclear factor (NF)- κB signaling pathway. The action of...

Publication date: Available online 22 August 2019Source: Advances in Virus ResearchAuthor(s): M. Alejandra Tortorici, David VeeslerAbstractCoronaviruses (CoVs) have caused outbreaks of deadly pneumonia in humans since the beginning of the 21st century. The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) emerged in 2002 and was responsible for an epidemic that spread to five continents with a fatality rate of 10% before being contained in 2003 (with additional cases reported in 2004). The Middle-East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) emerged in the Arabian Peninsula in 2012 and has caused recurrent outbre...

Authors: Hosoda T, Sakamoto M, Orikasa H, Kubomura A, Misaki T, Okabe N Abstract Recently, severe cases of infection due to hypermucoviscous Klebsiella pneumonia (hmKP) have been reported in Japan. The Amami Islands in Japan are also endemic regions for Strongyloides stercoralis. Disseminated strongyloidiasis strain often causes severe enterobacteria infection; however, whether or not chronic strongyloidiasis induces it remains unclear. We herein report a 71-year-old man who developed meningitis and liver abscess due to hmKP complicated with chronic strongyloidiasis. He died on the seventh hospital day. Strongyloid...

This study retrospectively evaluated the safety, impact on growth, and clinical outcomes of gastrojejunostomy tubes (GJTs) converted from surgically placed gastrostomy tubes (GTs) in 44 developmentally disabled children (median age: 28 months). The total duration of GJT follow-up was 31,378 device-days (median: 643 device-days). Three major complications (aspiration pneumonia) were identified in 3 patients (6.8%), 63 minor complications in 31 patients (70.5%), and 202 tube maintenance issues (TMIs) in 41 patients (93.2%). A significantly increased average change in weight-for-age z-scores was observed at each 6-month inter...
