Psychological support and the COVID-19 - A short report. Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci. 2020 Aug;24(15):8185-8186 Authors: Chen GF, Cheng YR, Ye L, Wang MW, Zhou MY, Zhang F, Chen J, Feng ZH Abstract OBJECTIVE: The World Health Organization reported a cluster of cases of pneumonia of unknown cause detected on December 31, 2019 in China. Unfortunately, a 34-year-old Italian nurse has committed suicide after testing positive for coronavirus. It was the second case of suicide by a nurse in an Italian hospital and occurred only a few days after the first suicide. These consecutive suicides have aroused concern, and it is necessary to investigate the psychological issues of the medical staff in Italy regarding the COVID-19. PMID: 32767347 [PubMed - in process]

I’ve struggled with professional identity from time to time, but after completing my PhD thesis looking at how people live well with pain, I’ve developed a new understanding of how occupational therapists add value in this area of practice. Occupational therapists joke that “no-one knows what an occupational therapist does” – and sadly, that’s true. It’s not because what we do isn’t important, it’s because our view of people and the way we work with people differs from most health professions. Occupational therapists don’t treat disease per se, we work with peo...

This study aimed to evaluate patients' satisfaction with their interactions with PIC staff and whether sociodemographic factors, depression and anxiety symptoms were associated with their perceptions of these interactions. In this cross-sectional study, we collected data from 84 patients receiving inpatient care in three psychiatric settings in Sweden. The patients' perceptions of interactions with staff and self-reported degrees of depression and anxiety were evaluated through questionnaires. Overall, patients were satisfied with the patient-staff interaction. However, significantly higher scores were related to staffs' p...

Abstract Sinogastromyzon sichangensis is a hillstream loach endemic to the upper Yangtze River, China. It is unclear whether this fish lives in a very restricted area or may be dispersed over a long distance. In the present study spatial connectivity of populations of S. sichangensis was investigated based on 343 individuals collected from 12 sites of Chishui River and employing 22 microsatellite loci. The results of genetic diversity analysis showed that observed heterozygosity (HO) and polymorphism information content (PIC) ranged from 0.5653 to 0.6999 and 0.8513 to 0.8819, respectively. Population structure ana...

Authors: Miserocchi E, Giuffrè C, Modorati GM, Cimaz R Abstract Italy was the first European country to be affected by the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. In this scenario, we had to face a new clinical approach in our Pediatric Rheumatology Unit for the management of patients affected by juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA)-associated uveitis. During the lockdown (phase 1), the weekly outpatient clinic was discontinued and telephone consultations were set up. A toll-free telephone number was instituted for emergencies. None of our children with JIA-associated uveitis was advised to stop the ongoing immunosuppressant sy...

Authors: Meng L, Yang X, Wu Y, Zhao Z, Yang L, Li M, Wang X, Zhang G Abstract Kindler syndrome (KS) is a rare subtype of epidermolysis bullosa that is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner with mutations in FERMT1. A number of mutations in FERMT1 have been identified in KS. The current study reported a 33-year-old Chinese man who exhibited a wide variety of clinical features, including formation of blisters, photosensitivity, cutaneous atrophy and poikiloderma, telangiectasia of the face and neck, contracture of the end limbs, nail dystrophy, muscle, eye and oral damage, tympanitis, esophagus narrowing, pneumo...

Authors: Ran H, Xiao H, Zhou X, Guo L, Lu S Abstract Allergic rhinitis (AR) is a common upper airway disease attributed to a variety of risk factors, such as environmental exposures and genetic susceptibility. The commonly observed comorbidity of asthma and AR in the clinic suggests the presence of shared genetic risk factors and biological mechanisms between these diseases. Interleukin (IL)-33 has been indicated to be an important factor driving asthma susceptibility and pathogenesis using both genome-wide association studies and functional studies in model animals. Although previous studies have reported the puta...
