#1

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to assess how often and for what reasons general practitioners (GPs) consider older drivers medically unfit to drive. METHODS: All GPs certified to carry out fitness-to-drive assessments in Geneva (medical assessors, n = 69), as well as a random sample of 500 GPs practising in Vaud, Neuchatel and Jura, were asked to complete a questionnaire about the mean number of assessments per week, the number of negative decisions in the previous year and the main reason for the most recent negative decision...

BACKGROUND: Antimicrobial resistance data from surveillance networks are frequently do not accurately predict resistance patterns of urinary tract infections at the bedside. OJECTIVE: To determine simple patient- and institution-related risk factors affecting antimicrobial resistance patterns of Escherichia coli urine isolates. METHODS: From January 2012 to May 2015 all consecutive urine samples with significant growth of E. coli (≥103 CFU/ml) obtained from a tertiary care hospital were analysed for antimicrobial susceptibility and related to basic clinical data such a patient age, ward, sample type (catheter vs non-catheter urine)...

BACKGROUND: Nonpharmacological home remedies offer the potential for easily accessible and well-accepted management of common disorders in general practice. We aimed to assess general practitioners' (GPs') perspectives on these remedies in two French-speaking European countries. METHODS: In 2017, we conducted a cross-sectional study among community-based GPs in the Geneva (Switzerland) and Grenoble (France) regions. They completed an anonymous questionnaire about forty common home remedies...

INTRODUCTION: In Switzerland, mandatory health insurance plans (standard) offer free access to secondary and emergency care. However, in return for a lower premium, individuals can choose alternative healthcare plans (HCPs), with either a general practitioner (GP) or a medical call centre (Telmed) acting as gatekeeper. AIM: To examine the impact of alternative HCPs on patients' intended help-seeking behaviour out-of-hours (OOH) in Switzerland. METHODS: A secondary analysis of the Swiss data collected for the EurOOHnet survey on help-seeking behaviour in Denmark, the Netherlands and Switzerland was made...

BACKGROUND: Sarcoidosis is a disorder of unknown aetiology. Most patients have steroid-responsive disease, but side effects and steroid resistance may necessitate alternative treatments. Endothelin has in-vitro fibrogenic activity and the endothelin system is activated in sarcoidosis. OBJECTIVES: We studied the efficacy and safety of the endothelin receptor antagonist bosentan in sarcoidosis patients. METHODS: In a prospective 12-month, double-blind, 1:1-randomised, placebo-controlled phase II trial, we assessed the effect of bosentan in patients with steroid-resistant sarcoidosis and with impaired exercise capacity and/or resting lung function...

AIMS OF THE STUDY: Tongue lacerations are common in children, occurring mostly from falls or sports injuries. Optimal treatment of tongue lacerations is a challenge for paediatricians due to contradictory recommendations and a lack of current guidelines. It remains unclear which tongue lacerations should be sutured and which would benefit from spontaneous healing, which is a promising alternative. In recent years, the treatment of choice in our paediatric emergency department (ED) has shifted from generally suturing the wounds to more frequently advising secondary wound healing...

AIM: The aim of this study was to analyse the immune influence of a parabiosis model on tumour-bearing mice. METHODS: Parabiosis was established between C57BL/6 wild-type mice expressing green fluorescent protein (GFP+) and C57BL/6 wild-type mice without green fluorescent protein (GFP) to ensure blood cross-circulation between animals, and then the expression of CD4+ T cells, CD8+ T cells and interleukins 2, 4 and 10, and interferon-gamma (INF-γ) in spleen cells of parabiosis model mice were examined with flow cytometry...

BACKGROUND: Nutrition in the first 1000 days between pregnancy and 24 months of life is critical for child health, and exclusive breastfeeding is promoted as the infant's best source of nutrition in the first 6 months. Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant occurring naturally in some foods and used to treat primary apnoea in premature babies. However high caffeine intake can be harmful, and caffeine is transmitted into breastmilk. AIM: To systematically review the evidence on the effects of maternal caffeine consumption during breastfeeding on the breastfed child...

OBJECTIVE: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is considered to be a progressive disease, starting with intermittent episodes that progress over time to more sustained events. However, little is known about the prevalence of and predictors for AF type among patients with recent-onset AF. We aimed to address these issues among a selected population of patients with AF. METHODS: The Basel atrial fibrillation cohort (BEAT-AF) study is an ongoing prospective multicentre cohort study among patients with AF...

BACKGROUND: Haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a rare clinical syndrome characterised by activation of the mononuclear phagocytic system, and often leads to progressive multiple organ failure. The diagnosis of HLH is made late by most physicians. METHODS: To confirm the diagnosis of acquired HLH made in a single-institution series of adult patients with HLH-04 criteria, we applied the HScore and evaluated prognostic factors associated with clinical outcome...

INTRODUCTION: In Switzerland, the outcome of vascular access creation in the 4500 current dialysis patients is unknown, mainly because there is no prospective registry for patients undergoing vascular access surgery for renal replacement therapy. The aim of the study was to assess the quality of vascular access creation and to compare it with the current literature and guidelines, in order to define strategies to improve clinical outcome. METHODS: Retrospective single-centre study in a tertiary referral centre...

The relevance of genetic and epigenetic alterations in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is still poorly understood. So far, 240 risk gene loci have been associated with IBD. They are mainly involved in regulating innate and adaptive immunity, as well as maintaining intestinal epithelial barrier function. However, the functional consequences of the identified genetic polymorphisms for IBD pathogenesis in vivo are often unknown. Even less is known about the role for epigenetic modifications in IBD pathogenesis...

AIMS: In comparison with other central European countries, Switzerland has a high prevalence of gun ownership and a high rate of suicide by shooting. After the Army XXI reform in 2003, which reduced personnel from about 400,000 to approximately 200,000, a decline in suicides by firearms and a decline in the total number of suicides was observed in national data spanning the period from 2000 to 2010. It is, however, unclear whether this decline can be linked to the reduced availability of military guns...
