ConclusionsThe PRESERVE Study represents the largest prospective study ever undertaken to investigate real-world outcomes with contemporary use of IVC filters. The investigators await results with the hope that it can improve patient care.
Conclusions: Recurrent CA-CDI in children in our population is less common than previously reported. This study supports first-line treatment with the standard, short course metronidazole in most cases of primary CA-CDI.

Publication date: Available online 16 October 2019Source: Food ChemistryAuthor(s): Ziye Zhang, Xiu-Min Li, Hang Xiao, Anna Nowak-Wegrzyn, Peng ZhouAbstractExopalaemon modestus (EM) is a shrimp delicacy that could cause food allergy, the major allergen of EM is Exo m 1. The amino acid (AA) sequence, IgE-binding epitopes and allergenic peptides in gastrointestinal (GI) digests of Exo m 1, and their effects on basophil function were investigated. Exo m 1 has an AA-sequence of high similarity with other shrimp tropomyosins, while not 100% matching. The IgE-binding epitopes of Exo m 1 are epitope 1 (43-59, VHNLQKRMQQLENDLDS), e...

Caruso, Christine Hohmann, Sonia A. CavigelliAbstractStable behavioral traits (temperament, personality) often predict health outcomes. Temperament-specific differences in immune function could explain temperament-specific health outcomes, however, we have limited information on whether immune function varies by personality. In the present study, we examined the relationship between a basic behavioral trait (behavioral-inhibition vs. non-inhibition) ...
