Acute Recurrent and Chronic Pancreatitis as Initial Manifestations of Cystic Fibrosis and Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator–Related Disorders

Conclusions Cystic fibrosis or CFTR-RD can present as ARP/CP. Complete diagnostic testing for CFTR-RD in patients with ARP/CP will broaden treatment options and help to identify comorbid illness.

(BEIJING) — Seventeen more people in central China have been diagnosed with a new form of viral pneumonia that has killed two patients and placed other countries on alert as millions of Chinese travel for Lunar New Year holidays. In total, 62 cases of the novel coronavirus have been identified in the city of Wuhan, where the virus appears to have originated. The Wuhan Municipal Health Commission reported the new cases in a statement Sunday. Nineteen of those individuals have been discharged from the hospital, while two men in their 60s — one with severe preexisting conditions — have died from the illness....

As an extended operation is significantly associated with postoperative complications, thoracic surgeons should carefully select the type of resection based on a balance between the therapeutic benefit and invasiveness in these patients.

Authors: Zupanič MV, Škerjanc A Abstract OBJECTIVE: Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disorder that affects mostly lungs but also other organs. Modern treatment has transformed once fatal disease of childhood into the chronic disease of adulthood. Hence more patients enter the job market. Very few adolescents with cystic fibrosis receive some formal career guidance. There is still no professional career guidance for them in Slovenia.

This study evaluated the recoveries of MS2 coliphage, a virus surrogate, from polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyethylene (PE), and glass (borosilicate and soda lime), as influenced by the surface chemistry and topography. MS2 (5-6 logs) in PBS with 1% TSB was inoculated onto each of 9 different surfaces, 24-h cold-incubated, and recovery was quantified by infectivity. The order of MS2 recovery efficiency from smooth surfaces was PP > PE ≥ soda lime glass, which classified into 3 ANOVA groups, p = 0.05. The MS2 recovery ratios of smooth vs. rough surfaces were 1.4-1.5. Atomic force microsco...
