A Retrieved Sparganum of Spirometra erinaceieuropaei from a Korean Man during Mechanical Thrombectomy.

We report a case of cerebral intravascular sparganosis in an elderly patient with acute ischemic stroke who was diagnosed by retrieving sparganum during mechanical thrombectomy. Finally, the parasites were identified as Spirometra erinaceieuropaei using multiplex PCR and cox1 gene sequencing. PMID: 32615744 [PubMed - in process]

It is estimated that 30 to 85 percent of patients with musculoskeletal pain are affected by myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) — pain originating from muscles and/or associated soft tissues such as fascia. Interactions between fascia and muscles remain mostly unknown and there is a strong need to address the contributions of the myofascial tissues to chronic pain. This represents one of the last “ unturned stones ” of all the tissue types involved in musculoskeletal pain. The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health and the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering are proud ...

Abstract Antimalarial candidates possessing novel mechanisms of action are needed to control drug resistant Plasmodium falciparum. We were drawn to Malaria Box compound 1 (MMV665831) by virtue of its excellent in vitro potency, and twelve analogs were prepared to probe its structure-activity relationship. Modulation of the diethyl amino group was fruitful, producing compound 25, which was twice as potent as 1 against cultured parasites. Efforts were made to modify the phenolic Mannich base functionality of 1, to prevent formation of a reactive quinone methide. Homologated analog 28 had reduced potency relative to ...

This study aims to explore the efficiency and safety of remote ischemic conditioning during the first five days following in patients who are ineligible for reperfusion treatment (intravenous thrombolysis or/and mechanical thrombectomy). We hypothesized that this intervention would reduce the infarct size (neuroprotection in the reperfusion window) and improve functional recovery. We aim to conduct a double-blind controlled trial, multicenter in two hospitals in Romania. Two hundred patients with acute ischemic stroke randomly divided into an experimental group and a control group will be included. The subjects in the expe...

(Institut Pasteur) Resistance to artemisinin, the main component of the current antimalarial treatments recommended by WHO, is already widespread in South-East Asia, but it had not previously been described in Africa. Scientists from the Institut Pasteur recently detected the emergence and spread of malaria parasites capable of resisting artemisinin derivatives for the first time in Rwanda.
