Real-World Study Shows Patients Treated with IMBRUVICA ® (ibrutinib) Were Less Likely to Initiate a Next-Line Treatment than Patients on Acalabrutinib in First-line Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
NEW ORLEANS, December 12, 2022 – The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson today announced results of a real-world study showing that patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) treated with first-line acalabrutinib monotherapy were 89 percent more likely to start a next-line treatment than those treated with IMBRUVICA® (ibrutinib).[1] These data suggest the potential that first-line treatment with IMBRUVICA® in routine practice may provide patients with the ability to use once-daily, all-oral IMBRUVICA® as a monotherapy treatment for a longer period without the need to start the next line of ...

Machine-learning based prediction of prognostic risk factors in patients with invasive candidiasis infection and bacterial bloodstream infection: a singled centered retrospective study.
Conclusion: Our results showed that the most common candida and bacteria infections were caused by Candida parapsilosis and Acinetobacter baumannii, respectively. The main predictors of death prognosis are serum creatinine level, age, length of stay, stay in ICU during hospitalisation, serum albumin level, CRP, leukocyte count, neutrophil count, PCT and total bilirubin level.

How Much Should a Newborn Eat?
Discussion A serving size and a portion are not the same thing. A serving size is a specific measured amount of food. This is cited on the product label or readily available resources such as cookbooks or the Internet (an example can be found here.) A portion is the amount chosen to be served or eaten by a person. They can be the same but may not be the same. For example, 4 ounces of cereal is a common serving size, but an adult may often eat more than this as their portion. Children especially need appropriate portion sizes to match their age and body size. A good general rule for any age is a portion is the size of the p...
