METHODS: Data from 65 patients with ACOS and 65 patients with COPD were retrospectively collected and analyzed. The basis of this study was to compare the two groups while ruling out differences in age, sex and smoking history...

BACKGROUND: The neural system can finely tune immune system, especially pro- or anti-inflammatory responses of monocytes/macrophages. To maintain immune homeostasis, monocytes/macrophages are supposed to be primed by α7 nAChR agonist to establish anti-inflammatory memory. AIM: To study whether activation of α7 nAChR would elicit anti-inflammatory memory in splenic monocytes in vivo and J774 monocytes in vitro DESIGN: : Laboratory study. METHODS: The wildtype mice were sacrificed 4 or 12 h after receiving intravenous injection of GTS-21...

BackgroundChronic subdural haematoma (CSDH) is a condition predominantly affecting the elderly. We reported an incidence of 8.2 per 100,000 per year in people above the age of 65 in 2002.AimSince recent studies have demonstrated a higher incidence, we repeated our study to estimate the current incidence of CSDH amongst people above the age of 65 in North Wales.DesignWe used radiological reports to identify patients with CSDH over a one-year period.MethodsWe collected data on demographics, clinical presentations, indications for brain imaging, drug history and 30-day outcome from the case notes and electronic records...

BACKGROUND: We previously reported weekend emergency admissions to have a higher mortality; we have now examined the time profile of deaths, by weekday or weekend admission, in all emergency medical patients admitted between 2002 - 2014. METHODS: We divided admissions by a weekday or weekend (After 17.00 Friday-Sunday) hospital arrival. We examined survival following an admission using Cox proportional hazard models and Kaplan-Meier time to event analysis. RESULTS: 82,368 admissions were recorded in 44,628 patients...

AIM: To determine the prevalence of psoriasis in an IBD cohort with reference to clinical characteristics and anti-TNFα use. METHODS: Patients with psoriasis and IBD were retrospectively identified from the IBD database at Tallaght Hospital from 2000 to 2015. Pertinent clinical data were obtained from patients notes including anti-TNFα exposure. Prevalence rates of genuine and reactive psoriasis were calculated and compared using a students T-test. A p value of < 0...

BACKGROUD: Few data is currently available on neutropenia and agranulocytosis related to drug intake. We report here data on 203 patients with established idiosyncratic drug-induced agranulocytosis, followed up in a referral centre within a university hospital. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Data from 203 patients with idiosyncratic drug-induced agranulocytosis were retrospectively reviewed. All cases were extracted from a cohort study on agranulocytosis in the Strasbourg University Hospital (Strasbourg, France) RESULTS: : The mean age was 61...

BackgroundThe incidence of stroke in pregnant women is low but trending upward. There are few studies of the topic in women of Asian ethnicity.AimWe aim to evaluate stroke risk in Asian women during and after pregnancy.DesignUsing the Taiwan National Health Insurance database (NHIRD), we designed a retrospective study that included 18-45-year-old pregnant women between the years 2000 and 2010. We selected a 1:1 age-matched control group of non-pregnant women. The endpoint was any type of stroke during pregnancy or the postpartum period; otherwise, the patients were tracked until December 31, 2010...

PURPOSE: colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide, and detection of new prognostic markers is mandatory for patients to receive optimal oncological treatment. The aim of the study was to assess clinical and prognostic value of red cell distribution width (RDW) in patients with CRC. METHODS: RDW values in 90 patients with CRC undergoing surgery for primary disease were analyzed in pre- and postoperative setting, and correlated with clinical and hematological parameters...

BACKGROUND: Due to aging and resources limitation, septic patients are often admitted to medical wards (MWs). Early warning deterioration is a relevant issue in this setting. Unfortunately, a suitable prognostic score has not been identified, yet. AIM: To explore the ability of Modified Early Warning Score (MEWS) to predict the in-hospital mortality in septic patients admitted to MWs. DESIGN: Secondary analysis of a multicentric prospective study...
