Neurological Adverse Effects Associated With Anti-tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha Antibodies in Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Diseases

Conclusions: NAE associated with anti-TNFα antibodies in pediatric IBD are rare. In severe NAE, we recommend to discontinue anti-TNFα therapy and to consider alternative treatment.

CONCLUSIONS: In VFT analysis of SSNHL with dizziness, diverse patterns were identified. In the absence of SN, no definite vestibular organ involvement was the most frequent. But in the case with SN, posterior canal deficit was most common and cerebellar ischemic stroke was rare. PMID: 32623411 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractSince the arrival of the first biosimilar monoclonal antibodies into the market, many information has been circulating, leading to preconceived notions for patients and healthcare professionals. In a pressing economic context and faced with a growing number of available biosimilars, we (clinician, patient association, biologist, pharmacists, health economists) propose to take stock by trying to distinguish facts from misconceptions.

The original version of this article, published on 10 February 2019, unfortunately contained a mistake. The axes of the graphs in Fig.  3 are incorrect. The correct figure is given below. Therefore, the last two sentences in “Results,” section “Noise,” should read: “The peak frequency of the HR and SHR was0.21 lp/mm. For the NR mode and the MDCT, the peak frequencies were0.17 lp/mm and0.21 lp/mm, respectively. ”

AbstractObjectivesResults after trans-arterial radioembolisation (TARE) for intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (iCC) depend on the architecture of the tumour. This latter can be quantified through computed tomography (CT) texture analysis. The aims of the present study were to analyse relationships between CT textural features prior to TARE and objective response (OR), progression-free survival (PFS), and overall survival (OS).MethodsTexture analysis was retrospectively applied to 55 pre-TARE CT scans of iCCs, focusing attention on the histogram-based features and the grey-level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM). Texture features w...

ConclusionsDiagnostic performance in ELVO detection with CTA was high across all levels of radiologist training level. Grayscale inversion offered no significant detection advantage.Key Points•Stroke is an acute vascular syndrome that requires acute vascular imaging.•Proximal large vessel occlusions can be identified quickly and accurately by radiologists across all training levels.•Grayscale inversion demonstrated minimal detectable benefit in the detection of proximal large vessel occlusions.
