Ebola virus (EBOV) is a negative-strand RNA virus that replicates in the cytoplasm and causes an often-fatal hemorrhagic fever. EBOV, like other viruses, can reportedly encode its own microRNAs (miRNAs) to subvert host immune defenses. miRNAs are short noncoding RNAs that can regulate gene expression by hybridizing to multiple mRNAs, and viral miRNAs can enhance viral replication and infectivity by regulating host or viral genes. To date, only one EBOV miRNA has been examined in human infection. Here, we assayed mouse, rhesus macaque, cynomolgus macaque, and human samples infected with three EBOV variants for twelve computationally predicted viral miRNAs using RT-qPCR...

EDITORIAL
Andrew W Yen
Blood transfusion practices for acute upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage have changed over time. Restrictive strategies, which gave way to more liberal approaches for the greater part of the 20th century, have again gained traction as emerging research suggests restricting transfusion is associated with similar, or possibly better outcomes in UGI bleeding. In a large, retrospective cohort study from an integrated health care system in Taiwan, Chen, et al., report the association between early blood transfusion and clinical outcomes in patients presenting to the emergency department with UGI bleeding, and these findings are discussed in the context of current knowledge and practice...

Combined traumatic brain injury (TBI) and hemorrhagic shock (HS) remains a leading cause of preventable death worldwide. Mesenchymal stem cell-derived exosomes have demonstrated promise in small animal models of neurologic injury. To investigate the effects of exosome treatment in a clinically realistic large animal model, Yorkshire swine were subjected to TBI and HS. Animals were maintained in shock for 2 hours prior to resuscitation with normal saline (NS). Animals were then either resuscitated with NS (3 x volume of shed blood) or with the same volume of NS with delayed exosome administration (1x10<sup>13</sup> particles/4ml) (n=5/cohort)...

Pneumothorax in preterm infants is associated with an increased risk of chronic lung disease, intraventricular hemorrhage and mortality. In mechanically ventilated preterm infants, for the management of tension pneumothorax if needle aspiration is not successful a thoracostomy is needed. In the last two decades management of tension pneumothorax has changed from the use of traditional chest tubes to percutaneous pigtail catheter thoracostomy (PPCT) as the most commonly used technique. When compared to placement of traditional chest tubes, PPCT is touted as being faster requiring, less analgesia and less training for proficiency and having fewer complications...

Vascular cognitive impairment (VCI), the second most common cause of dementia in elderly people, is a term that refers to all forms of cognitive disorders that can be attributed to cerebrovascular disease such as manifestations of discrete infarctions, brain hemorrhages, and white matter lesions. The gut microbiota (GM) has emerged recently as an essential player in the development of VCI. The GM may affect the brain's physiological, behavioral, and cognitive functions through the brain-gut axis via neural, immune, endocrine, and metabolic pathways...

Endometriosis-related ascites is rare and is frequently confused with an ovarian malignancy. Since it affects women in reproductive age, its diagnosis and therapy are even more challenging. These patients usually present with abdominal distension, pelvic pain, and weight loss, but a careful questioning usually reveals the typical endometriosis symptoms-such as dysmenorrhea and dyspareunia. We present three cases of endometriosis-related ascites, one of them with pleural effusion. All cases were associated with extensive disease and required laborious laparoscopic surgery, medical therapy with gonadotropin releasing hormone analogs, and long-term follow-up...

Endometrial ablation (EA) is a commonly performed minimally invasive technique to manage intractable uterine bleeding that is unresponsive to medical therapy. It originated in ancient times when chemical astringents were used to control uterine hemorrhage associated with childbirth and a variety of other gynecologic conditions. In the late 19th century, the use of astringents and chemical cauterants gave way to the application of a variety of thermal energy technologies to cause selective destruction of the endometrium...

OBJECTIVE: Most acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients with unwitnessed symptom onset are ineligible for intravenous thrombolysis due to timing alone. Lesion evolution on FLAIR MRI correlates with stroke duration, and quantitative mismatch of diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) with FLAIR (qDFM) might indicate stroke duration within guideline-recommended thrombolysis. We tested if intravenous thrombolysis ≤4.5 h from time of symptom discovery is safe in patients with qDFM in an open-label, phase 2a, prospective study (NCT01282242)...
