Conclusion: Topical minoxidil is efficacious for the treatment of hair loss due to male and female androgenic alopecia, alopecia areata, with case-by-case application for traction alopecia, hair transplantation, and congenital hair disorders. Combination therapies using minoxidil with systemic, topical, and injectable therapies demonstrate increased effectiveness over monotherapies. J Drugs Dermatol. 2019;18(2):155-160.

We present our experience with hypothermic machine perfusion (HMP) versus cold storage (CS) in relation to kidney transplant outcomes. Methods: Retrospective analysis of 33 consecutive HMP kidney transplant outcomes matched with those of 33 cold stored: delayed graft function (DGF), length of hospital stay (LOS), estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), and patient and graft survival were compared. Renal Resistive Indexes (RIs) during HMP in relation to DGF were also analysed. Results: In the HMP group, mean HMP time was 5.7 ± 3.9 hours with a mean cold ischaemic time (CIT) of 15 ± 5.6 versus 15...

ConclusionThis study highlights the ongoing risk of opportunistic infection several years after transplantation and adds weight to potential person to person Pneumocystis jirovecii transmission. Risk factors have been identified which may highlight those most at risk, allowing targeted rather than blanket long-term PCP prophylaxis.

Resistance to doxorubicin-eluting bead transarterial chemoembolization (DEB-TACE) correlates with increased recurrence risk following orthotopic liver transplantation; factors predicting treatment response are lacking. Synthetic liver function and absolute lymphocyte count (ALC) versus treatment response to DEB-TACE was investigated.
