People who are "triply diagnosed" with HIV, mental health issues, and substance-related disorders face tremendous barriers connecting to and remaining in HIV care. Authors of this article implemented Project Bridge Oakland (PBO), an intervention based on harm reduction and trauma-informed care, to help maintain continuity of care for triply diagnosed adults through cycles of criminal justice involvement. From August 2011 to December 2014, a clinical social worker and an HIV physician provided intensive case management for 19 clients living in Oakland, California...

Clinical genome and exome sequencing can diagnose pediatric patients with complex conditions that often require follow-up care with multiple specialties. The American Academy of Pediatrics emphasizes the role of the medical home and the primary care pediatrician in coordinating care for patients who need multidisciplinary support. In addition, the electronic health record (EHR) with embedded clinical decision support is recognized as an important component in providing care in this setting. We interviewed 6 clinicians to assess their experience caring for patients with complex and rare genetic findings and hear their opinions about how the EHR currently supports this role...

It is estimated that four million people in Germany are living with a rare disease; in the EU, approximately 30 million people are affected. All rare diseases are chronic, linked to invalidity and/or restricted life expectancy, and their symptoms are often already manifest in childhood. Some 80% of rare diseases are genetically determined; they can rarely be cured. Furthermore, the pathogenesis of many rare diseases is unknown.In a move to ameliorate the situation of persons with rare diseases, the National Action League for People with Rare Diseases (NAMSE) published the National Plan of Action for People with Rare Diseases containing 52 measures that aim to achieve the desired improvements...

BACKGROUND: HIV prevalence in Puerto Rico is nearly twice that of the mainland United States, a level that was substantially fueled by injection drug use. Puerto Rico has a longstanding history of health provision by the public sector that directly affects how HIV and substance use disorder (SUD) treatment services are provided and funded. As part of pre-implementation research for a randomized trial of a community-level intervention to enhance HIV care access for substance users in San Juan, Puerto Rico, we sought to understand the structural and health policy environment for providing HIV and SUD treatments...

Ribonucleases play essential roles in all aspects of RNA metabolism, including the coordination of post-transcriptional gene regulation that allows organisms to respond to internal changes and environmental stimuli. However, as inherently destructive enzymes, their activity must be carefully controlled. Recent research exemplifies the repertoire of regulatory strategies employed by ribonucleases. The activity of the phosphorolytic exoribonuclease, polynucleotide phosphorylase (PNPase), has previously been shown to be modulated by the Krebs cycle metabolite citrate in Escherichia coli...

Preventable deaths after injury must be reduced to improve outcomes for trauma patients. The elimination of preventable deaths after injury has been documented by the 75th US Army Ranger Regiment. Therefore, zero preventable deaths after injury is an achievable goal. Trauma is the most common cause of death between the ages of 1-46 and is the most common cause of life-years lost, before 75 years of age, compared to all other etiologies. Traumatic Hemorrhagic Shock (THS) is the leading cause of death that is preventable after injury, accounting for potentially 17,000 preventable deaths per year in the US...

CONTEXT: Overutilization and overreliance on Emergency Departments (EDs) as a usual source of care can lead to unnecessarily high costs and undesirable consequences, such as a gap in care coordination and inadequate provision of preventive care. OBJECTIVE: To identify factors associated with multiple ED visits by patients, in particular, the impact of primary care physicians (PCPs) on their patients' multiple ED visit rates. DESIGN: Geisinger Health Plan claims data among adult patients who averaged more than 1 ED visit within a 12-month period between 2013 and 2014 were obtained (N = 20,351)...

REVIEW
Caroline L Knight, Catherine Nelson-Piercy
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic, multisystem autoimmune disease predominantly affecting women, particularly those of childbearing age. SLE provides challenges in the prepregnancy, antenatal, intrapartum, and postpartum periods for these women, and for the medical, obstetric, and midwifery teams who provide their care. As with many medical conditions in pregnancy, the best maternal and fetal-neonatal outcomes are obtained with a planned pregnancy and a cohesive multidisciplinary approach. Effective prepregnancy risk assessment and counseling includes exploration of factors for poor pregnancy outcome, discussion of risks, and appropriate planning for pregnancy, with consideration of discussion of relative contraindications to pregnancy...
