This show is really ‘Sick.’ If you’re concerned about your health, that’s why you should watch it.

The online series takes brief-but-deep dives into what diseases — such as malaria, measles and lupus — do to our bodies.

In this study we analyze the distribution of apicomplexans across a range of both host-associated and free-living environments. Using publicly available small subunit (SSU) rRNA gene databases, high-throughput environmental sequencing (HTES) surveys, and our own generated HTES data, we developed an apicomplexan reference database, which includes the largest apicomplexan SSU rRNA tree available to date and encompasses comprehensive sampling of this group and their closest relatives. This tree allowed us to identify and correct incongruences in the molecular identification of apicomplexan sequences. Analyzing the diversity a...

Authors: Company-Quiroga J, Alique-García S, Romero-Maté A Abstract Discoid lupus erythematosus is the most disfiguring and common presentation of chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus. Although most patients will respond to lifestyle measures and topical treatment, a non-negligible number of patients will require systemic and physical therapy, either alone or in combination. We performed a review of the available evidence on the discoid lupus erythematosus treatment. Lifestyle measures and topical treatment (corticosteroids and topical calcineurin inhibitors) remain the therapeutic strategies with th...

Authors: Patsinakidis N, Kautz O, Gibbs BF, Raap U Abstract Lupus erythematosus tumidus (LET) is an uncommon and photosensitive inflammatory skin disorder which is characterised by erythematous urticarial plaques. In the last 20 years, extensive research on clinical and histological aspects of the disease have led to a better characterization of this nosological entity and to differentiate it from other similar or related diseases. Today, LET is considered as a separate subtype of cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE) with a benign, intermittent clinical course (intermittent CLE, ICLE) and only rarely associated...

WolfAbstractWe have recently shown that the artemisinin derivative artemisone, which was screened against malaria in human clinical studies, is a potent inhibitor of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV). Here we evaluated the antiviral effect of artemisone when employed in 2-drug combinations with approved and experimental anti-HCMV agents. Using the Chou-Talalay method, we found that in-vitro combination of artemisone with cidofovir, brinci...
