CONCLUSION: Vaccine-related anaphylaxis seems to have been very rare in the past, but health care professionals must always be aware of anaphylaxis. PMID: 32989932 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: McNamara A, Roebke K, Danthi P Abstract Infection of host cells by mammalian reovirus in culture or in tissues of infected animals results in cell death. Cell death of infected neurons and myocytes contributes to the pathogenesis of reovirus-induced encephalitis and myocarditis in a newborn mouse model. Thus, reovirus-induced cell death has been used to investigate the basis of viral disease. Depending on the cell type, infection of host cells by reovirus results in one of two forms of cell death-apoptosis and necroptosis. In addition to the obvious differences in how these two forms of cell death are exec...

Authors: Moreiras-Plaza M, Nieto-Baltar B, Hernansanz-Pérez M, Carames-Feijoo C, Martínez-Corona E, Lorenzo-García G Abstract The fact that self-locating catheters have a piece of metal at the tip leads to doubt and uncertainty around performing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with this type of catheter. We simulated a peritoneum with a weighted catheter to ascertain how the catheter behaved during MRI scans in 1.5T and 3T machines. We also reviewed cases in which MRI had been performed in patients with this type of catheter. In the simulation, the tip of the self-locating peritone...

Conclusions: A recommendation by a health care provider may be not enough to motivate Latina immigrant mothers to vaccinate their daughters. Further efforts should focus on increasing awareness regarding HPV and cervical cancer, heightening perceived risk of HPV infection among daughters and boosting self-efficacy to get their children vaccinated against HPV.

This October is the 10th anniversary of the Equality Act in Great Britain, and COVID-19 has shown why it is still so needed. As a UNISON activist in a voluntary sector branch, I rely on the Equality Act when representing members – including disabled members discriminated against and facing dismissal because of sickness levels, lack of disability leave or reasonable adjustments. I have also used it to prevent discrimination happening in the first place, working with employers to introduce accessibility passports for disabled workers. The Equality Act was a fantastic achievement. Years of trade union campaigning and a ...

 This week's case is from Dr. Peter Gilligan. It's a histopathology image - which I know isn't always popular with the classical parasitologists! But I think you might be able to take a stab at the diagnosis regardless. The following eggs were seen in an ulcerated area of an intestinal biopsy. They measure approximately 30 micrometers in diameter. Identification?

Conclusions: RC/SCI is primarily associated with consolidation deficits, which differs from SI-TBI. Given the role of the hippocampus in memory consolidation and the fact that hyperphosphorylated tau tends to accumulate in the medial temporal lobe in RC/SCI, consolidation deficits may be a cognitive marker of chronic traumatic encephalopathy in athletes.

Authors: Migliari S, Sammartano A, Scarlattei M, Baldari G, Silva C, Ruffini L Abstract BACKGROUND: Due to its overexpression in a variety of tumor types, the chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) represents a highly relevant diagnostic and therapeutic target in nuclear oncology. Recently, [68Ga]Ga-DOTA-Pentixafor has emerged as an excellent imaging agent for positron emission tomography (PET) of CXCR4 expression in vivo. Preparation conditions may influence the quality and in vivo behaviour of this tracer and no standard procedure for the quality controls (QCs) is available. OBJECTIVE: The developed analytical test met...
