What Causes Rectal Prolapse?
Discussion Rectal prolapse is defined as a herniation of the rectum through the anal verge. In children it is also usually mucosal prolapse and not full thickness. Partial or mucosal prolapse usually is seen as radial folds occurring 1 – 2.5 cm from the anal verge. Full thickness will protrude more than 5 cm. It affects genders equally and occurs most commonly in children under age 4. This is due to vertical course and low position of the anus, looser supporting tissues and less muscular support. These children are more likely to have prolapse but are less likely to have it recur. After age 4 the rectum takes the adu...

New insights on cause of anaphylaxis following COVID-19 vaccination
(Wiley) On the first day of the UK campaign for COVID-19 vaccination, there were reports of two cases of anaphylaxis — a severe, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction — within minutes of administration of the Pfizer/BioNTech mRNA vaccine. Subsequently further cases of suspected anaphylaxis to the Pfizer vaccine were reported. A new report published in Clinical& Experimental Allergy reveals that an allergy to the ingredient polyethylene glycol (PEG) is a cause of anaphylaxis to the vaccine. However, this is in the context of millions of doses safely administered. (Source: EurekAlert! - Infectious and Emerging Diseases)

Nano-micelle packaging CRISPR/Cas9 components enables brain genome editing
(Innovation Center of NanoMedicine) The search of safe and efficient delivery methods of CRISPR/Cas9 is still ongoing. We fabricated nano-micelle co-loading Cas9 mRNA and gRNA in the core, and proved for the first time that RNA-based delivery of CRISPR/Cas9 induces genome editing in mouse brain parenchyma. This was possible because: first, co-loading gRNA with Cas9 mRNA protected gRNA from degradation, and second, polyethylene glycol-covered nano-micelle allowed better diffusion in brain tissue.

BMJ Editorial: Vaccinating against covid-19 in people who report allergies, BMJ
Editorial notes polyethylene glycol (PEG 2000) in the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is a known potential allergen. Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine does not contain PEG2000 but does have polysorbate 80 which may be cross-reactive therefore evaluation by an allergy specialist may be required.

Allergists offer reassurance regarding potential allergic reactions to COVID-19 vaccines
(Massachusetts General Hospital) Reports of possible allergic reactions to COVID-19 vaccines have raised public concern; however, allergists note that allergic reactions to vaccines are rare, and COVID-19 vaccine allergic reactions will have a similarly low rate of occurrence. Individuals with a history of anaphylaxis to an injectable drug or vaccine containing polyethylene glycol or polysorbate should speak with an allergist before getting vaccinated, but patients with severe allergies to foods, oral drugs, latex or venom can safely receive the COVID-19 vaccines.
