Candida infections in patients with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis treated with interleukin-17 inhibitors and their practical management.
CONCLUSIONS: In this review, we include a study of the new anti-IL-17 biological agents (secukinumab, ixekizumab, and bromalizumab ) used for moderate-to-severe psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis treatment in clinical practice, as well as pivotal trials with bimekizumab. We study the relationship of these biological agents and the appearance of candidiasis in its various clinical forms. PMID: 33026212 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract The main aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of an air membrane bioreactor (aMBR) for the treatment of gas-phase methanol. A laboratory-scale hollow fiber aMBR was operated for 150 days, at inlet methanol concentrations varying between 2 and 30 g m-3 and at empty bed residence times (EBRT) of 30, 10 and 5 s. Under steady-state conditions, a maximum methanol removal efficiency (RE) of 98% was obtained at an EBRT of 30 s and a decrease in RE of methanol was observed at lower EBRTs. On increasing the inlet loading rate, some portion of gas-phase MeOH was stripped into the li...

BEST supplements to relieve joint pain: Is your arthritis playing up? The wetter and colder months could partially be to blame. These two pills may help.
CONCLUSIONS: As the present study was the first investigation on the coagulation status in patients with AA, elevated D-dimer levels in alopecia areata may suggest a deficient coagulation in these patients that may contribute to an increase in the risk of thrombosis. Further studies are needed to evaluate this hypothesis using a larger sample size. PMID: 33034439 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Our results confirm that CZP can be administered safely and effectively to treat both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis irrespective of previous treatments with biologic agents. PMID: 33034437 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: According to our subclinical electrophysiological findings, surgeons that use the posterolateral approach in THA procedures must be conscious of the sciatic nerve's vulnerability to reduce possible clinical complications. PMID: 33031693 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Although treatment algorithms are an attractive tool to guide clinicians and resource allocation, they need to take into account the local population characteristics before routine implementation. Level of Evidence: Level IV–retrospective cohort study.
