BACKGROUND: There is on ongoing debate in the literature regarding the real burden of STIs (sexually transmitted infections) in Western countries and the proper strategies needed to estimate and to prevent them. Our purpose is to present an evidence-based national strategic plan for STI prevention in Israel through assessing the current burden of illness, leading international preventive strategies, and practical policymaking experience. METHODS: Epidemiologic and health policy data on STIs were analyzed from various sources: a) systematic national surveillance data for the years 2002-2014; b) the international scientific literature (published between 2002-16; keywords: Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) (or STI) AND prevention AND intervention AND gonorrhea OR chlamydia OR syphilis; c) internal Ministry of Health (MOH) analyses and reports, and d) expert opinion...

Comparing and contrasting motor unit recruitment and activation for the same muscles for multiple versus single-joint exercise may provide a better understanding of neuromuscular fatigue. The purpose of this study, therefore, is to compare the slope and y-intercept terms for the three superficial quadriceps femoris (vastus lateralis, rectus femoris, and vastus medialis) muscles derived from the log-transformed EMG amplitude-power output relationship between the single-leg knee-extensor ergometry and the single-leg cycle ergometry...

Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) is, arguably, the most impactful disease for the North American swine industry, due to its known considerable economic losses. The Swine Health Monitoring Project (SHMP) monitors and reports weekly new PRRS cases in 766 sow herds across the US. The time-dependent reproduction number (TD-R) is a measure of a pathogen's transmissibility. It may serve to capture and report PRRS virus (PRRSV) spread at the regional and system levels. The primary objective of the study here was to estimate the TD-R values for PRRSV using regional and system-level PRRS data, and to contrast it with commonly used metrics of disease, such as incidence estimates and space-time clusters...

BACKGROUND: Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) typically affects the dermis and subcutaneous tissue. The subcutaneous variant is rare. OBJECTIVE: We sought to characterize the subcutaneous DFSP (SC-DFSP) variant and compare it with cutaneous DFSP (C-DFSP). METHODS: This work was a retrospective study of DFSP treated in our institution. RESULTS: Of 124 cases of DFSP, 18 were SC-DFSP (14.5%). Except for the deep location, the pathologic and genetic features were indistinguishable from the C-DFSP variant...

INTRODUCTION: Multi-disease community health campaigns can be effective for population-wide HIV testing in a research setting (SEARCH: NCT01864603). We sought to evaluate feasibility and uptake of a community-led health campaign (CLHC) planned and implemented by village leaders and local clinic workers in Uganda. METHODS: Over five months in 2014, locally elected village leaders and Ministry of Health (MoH) clinic staff in a rural parish in Uganda planned a census followed by a CLHC, after training by two SEARCH trial consultants and by leaders from a neighbouring parish that had previously participated in a SEARCH health campaign...

Poor cosmetic outcome is associated with significant negative impact on quality of life (QOL).(1) The degree of psychosocial distress may be more correlated with patient perception rather than objective scar severity. The patient's personal assessment is the primary influence on psychosocial morbidity.(1) Therefore, patient-reported outcome (PRO) instruments are valuable in assessing cosmetic outcome and impact on QOL.

Micrographic surgery is currently the only technique which ensures complete removal of basal cell carcinomas. The major limitation is the high set-up cost, which is particularly connected with specialized training of surgeons, technicians and the set-up of a histology facility for frozen tissue sectioning and staining. In the long run, however, the cost of Mohs surgery per patient does not exceed that of conventional surgery. The technique is very safe and has multiple advantages over any other treatment modality...

BACKGROUND: Pharmaceutical drug shortages (DSs) are a global problem which presents challenges to countries around the world. Shortages of pharmaceutical products may have a direct detrimental impact on public health and patients' wellbeing by causing delayed, or even lack of, treatment. Moreover, DSs may force both patients and caregivers to use unfamiliar drugs, which could lead to medication errors. The objective of our study was to analyze DSs in Israel during the years 2013-2015, assessing their etiology and exploring the steps taken for their mitigation and prevention...

BACKGROUND: Spatial normalization of brain images, a prerequisite for voxel based morphometry analysis, may account for the large variability of the volumetric data in medication overuse headache (MOH); possibly because this disease concerns patients differing on both sex and age, and hence with different brain size and shape. METHODS: The present study aimed at providing a subject-based analysis of macrostructure using a native space volumes segmentation (Freesurfer), and microstructure using a region of interest (ROI: i...

A 68-year-old gentleman presented with a lesion that resembled a pyogenic granuloma in his inferior fornix. The lesion was excised and biopsy demonstrated a proliferation of malignant spindle cells. Three weeks following initial excision, the lesion recurred and was removed via wedge excision of the eyelid. Definitive clearance was achieved through Mohs micrographic surgery. The patient received adjuvant postoperative radiotherapy and remains disease-free. This case demonstrates the need to consider sinister pathology in the setting of recurrent periocular lesions...

Trichoblastic carcinoma is a rare epithelial malignant epithelial tumor, its diagnosis is difficult and the therapeutic management is non-consensual. This retrospective study, carried out between 2009 and 2015, covered 21 cases and analyzed the diagnostic and therapeutic characteristics of trichoblastic carcinomas. Sex ratio is 2. Trichoblastic carcinoma predominated in the face (65% of cases), particularly in perinasal (30% of cases). Its clinical presentation is in 95% of cases as basal cell carcinoma, which is the first clinical diagnosis evoked...

REVIEW
P Reddi Rani, Jasmina Begum
Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is a leading cause of maternal mortality and morbidity worldwide and 75-90% of these haemorrhage results from uterine atony. Delayed and substandard obstetrics care can kill a woman within hours of Major Obstetric Haemorrhage (MOH). Prenatal identification of at risk women, prompt assessment of blood loss, effective management and involvement of multidisciplinary teams is of utmost importance to save the lives of these women. However, even with the best prenatal care, PPH occurs, it can occur without any risk factors...

Importance: The best surgical treatment modalities for subungual squamous cell carcinoma (SUSCC) without bone invasion need to be determined. The limited available data on Mohs micrographic surgery do not demonstrate its use as a standard procedure. A previous study in a limited series of patients has shown that wide surgical excision of the nail unit was associated with a low rate of recurrence. Objectives: To confirm the efficiency of wide surgical excision of the nail unit with full-thickness skin graft reconstruction on a series of patients with SUSCC with an extended follow-up and to evaluate short- and long-term postoperative morbidity and patient satisfaction...

 Mohs paste is an external preparation containing zinc hydrochloride and zinc oxide starch as the main ingredient, and it is used for the palliative treatment of patients with surgically untreatable malignant tumors. However, it has problems, such as changes in hardness and viscoelasticity with time and liquefaction by exudate. To overcome these problems, we modified the formulation of Mohs paste by excluding starch, which is the cause of physical changes, and investigated the base. In the modified Mohs paste using the macrogol ointment for the base, no marked change with time was noted in the hardness, malleability, or elongation property, and the water-absorbing properties were equivalent to those of Mohs paste immediately after preparation...
