Seroprevalence of Hepatitis E virus infection in children after liver transplantation: A single-center experience in France

ConclusionThe prevalence of HEV infection in our cohort is low and similar to other pediatric reports. We saw no cases of chronic hepatitis or fibrosis attributable to HEV. The lower immunosuppressive regimen used in PLT children compared to other solid organ transplant recipients may account for this good outcome.

PATIENTS AND METHODS: The clinical and immuno-virological status of 163 HIV-1-infected children and adolescents attending Necker Hospital in Paris, France, were investigated. Virological suppression was defined as an HIV-1 viral load

CONCLUSIONS: At the time the HEPLA study was carried out, the data from this cross-section of patients in Latin America showed that the CHC population has variation in disease and viral characteristics, with a minority of patients receiving treatment and many patients having advanced disease. Increased awareness and access to treatment are necessary in Latin America in order to meet the goal of hepatitis C virus elimination by 2030. PMID: 31718995 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Burnett, Duncan Nickerson, Elena S. Di Martino, Vincent A. Gabriel, Jeff BiernaskieSummaryFollowing full-thickness skin injuries, epithelialization of the wound is essential. The standard of care to achieve this wound “closure” in patients is autologous split-thickness skin grafting (STSG). However, patients living with STSGs report significant chronic impairments leading to functional deficiencies such as itch, altered s...

D'HaeseAbstractSuccessful kidney transplantation (partly) corrects the physiologic and metabolic abnormalities driving chronic kidney disease – mineral and bone disorders. At the same time, renal transplant recipients are exposed to immunosuppressive agents that may affect bone metabolism. Bone biomarkers have been suggested as surrogates of or adjuncts to bone biopsy and imaging techniques to assess bone health and to classify risk of bone loss and fractures. Bone biomarkers may be...

ConclusionsCardiac allografts deemed high-risk by utilization and survival based methods led to equivalent post-transplant survival as matched recipients with low-risk donors. This study demonstrates that traditionally high-risk donors may have been associated with worst post-transplant survival because of the recipients that utilized them. Therefore, accepting these “high-risk” donor grafts should be considered as a potential approach to reduce waiting list times and mortality while maintaining comparable post-transplant survival.

Data were obtained from 57 goat kids of Gokceada breed. Predictor variables were pre-slaughter weight, several carcass measurements and indices, weights of different carcass joints and dressing percentage. R2 values ranging from 0.212 to 0.371 in...

Abstract Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a serious condition. However, prevailing therapeutic strategies are not effective enough to treat PAH. Therefore, finding an effective therapy is clearly warranted. Adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ASCs) and ASCs-derived exosomes (ASCs-Exos) exert protective effects in PAH, but the underlying mechanism remains unclear. Using a coculture of ASCs and monocrotaline pyrrole (MCTP)-treated human pulmonary artery endothelial cells (HPAECs), we demonstrated that ASCs increased cell proliferation in MCTP-treated HPAECs. Results showed that ASCs-Exos improved prolife...
