A new danger threatens the integrity of scholarly publishing: predatory journals. Internet-only, "open-access" publishing is a valid way for researchers to reach the public without a paywall separating them. But, of thousands of open-access scientific journals today, as many as twenty-five percent are believed to be fake, existing only to make money by charging authors high processing fees. In sham journals, peer review is cursory or absent: as many as eighty to ninety percent of submitted manuscripts are accepted, many within days, without any editorial comment...

OBJECTIVES: We present an overview of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding in Rhode Island through analysis of 935 NIH grants received during the fiscal years of 2012 to 2016. RESULTS: NIH funded over 2,600 grants from 2012 to 2016, of which approximately 900 were new grant awards, and the remainder were annual grant renewals. The most funded type of research in Rhode Island is mental health and substance abuse, followed by infectious disease, neurology, and public health...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is associated with significant morbidity, decreased quality of life, and burdensome hospital admissions. Therefore, patients with COPD interact with clinicians in a number of healthcare settings. A coalition of healthcare practitioners in Rhode Island, in partnership with the local Quality Improvement Organization, designed and implemented a standardized, COPD education program for use across multiple healthcare settings. More than 60 organizations participated, producing 140 Master Trainers, who trained 634 staff members at their facilities from October 2015 through June 2016...

Cody A Doberstein, Radmehr Torabi, Petra M Klinge
Type 1 Chiari malformations (CMs) are a group of congenital or acquired disorders which include the abnormal presence of the cerebellar tonsils in the upper spinal canal, rather than the posterior fossa. The resulting anatomic abnormality causes crowding of the structures at the craniocervical junction and can impair the normal flow of cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) in this region. This impairment in CSF flow dynamics can led to the development of syringomyelia or hydrocephalus. Type 1 CMs have been associated with a wide array of symptoms resulting from either cerebellar and brainstem compression and distortion or disturbances in CSF dynamics, and can affect both children and adults...

Gliomas are a class of primary brain tumors arising from the supporting structures of the brain, the astrocytes and oligodendrocytes, which range from benign lesions to its most malignant form, the glioblastoma. Treatment for these lesions includes maximal surgical resection, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. Recently, novel therapies such as immune modulatory therapies and electrical field treatment of the most malignant form, the glioblastoma, have shown promise in improving survival. We will review recent advances in clinical trials, explore the role of multimodal care in brain tumor therapy, as well as explore advances in molecular biology and nanotechnology which offer new hope for treatment of this class of disease...

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most malignant of the primary central nervous system (CNS) neoplasms, accounting for nearly 80% of all primary brain tumors and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Immunotherapy is proving to be a fertile ground for next-generation GBM therapy, with large translational research projects and clinical trials currently underway. One particularly promising area is the chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) in the context of lymphocyte adoptive cell therapy (ACT), which has achieved success in the treatment of hematological malignancies...

The first academic program in endoscopic spine surgery in the United States opened its doors at Rhode Island Hospital in 2012. Published advances in the field since its inception have included treatments for a myriad of pathologies including lumbar and thoracic disc herniations, spondylolisthesis, spine tumors as well as treatments for complications of other spinal procedures including spinal fusion, kyphoplasty, and total disc replacement. In this issue of the Rhode Island Medical Journal we summarize the history of the procedure as well as some of the interesting progress going on in this field in Rhode Island...

Umer Akbar, Wael F Asaad
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a well-established form of neuromodulation, used primarily for movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease (PD) and Essential Tremor (ET). The selection of patients who will benefit most from DBS depends on a team of clinicians from various disciplines, including neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry, neuropsychology and rehabilitation specialists. The actual surgical procedure can take many forms. We apply a combination of multidisciplinary, team-based evaluations and intra-operative neurophysiology, test stimulation and imaging to optimize DBS therapy for individual patients...

Stroke is a major cause of death and disability in the United States and rapid evaluation and treatment of stroke patients are critical to good outcomes. Effective surgical treatments aim to restore adequate cerebral blood flow, prevent secondary brain injury, or reduce the likelihood of recurrent stroke. Patient evaluation in centers with a comprehensive stroke program and a dedicated neuro- vascular team is recommended. [Full article available at http://rimed.org/rimedicaljournal-2017-06.asp].

Brain metastasis is the most frequent central nervous system malignancy. Although surgery and chemotherapy have roles to play in the treatment of brain metastasis, radiation therapy remains a mainstay of therapy. We will review the role of fractionated radiotherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery in the treatment of newly diagnosed and recurrent brain metastasis.

There has been significant progress and innovation in the treatment of patients with metastatic spinal tumors over the last two to three decades that has impacted our ability to provide individualized care that improves a patient's quality of life and degree of neurologic impairment. Advances in surgical techniques and radiation delivery modalities have dramatically improved our ability to decrease local tumor recurrence rates, improve pain control, and provide more durable spinal stability. Modern day spine tumor resection and reconstruction techniques have been shown to improve and prolong patients' ability to ambulate, maintain continence, and reduce the need for pain medications...
