PurposeDry eye syndrome (DES) causes significant morbidity. Trials of blood-derived products in treatment of the condition show promising results. However, their production is expensive and time-consuming. We investigate fingerprick autologous blood (FAB) as an alternative low-cost, readily accessible treatment for DES.Patients and methodsProspective, non-comparative, interventional case series. In total, 29 eyes of 16 DES patients (2 males and 14 females) from two NHS sites in the United Kingdom. Patients instructed to clean a finger, prick with a blood lancet, and apply a drop of blood to the lower fornix of the affected eye(s), 4 times daily for 8 weeks then stop and review 4 weeks later...

REVIEW
Miriam Thake, Andrew Lowry
INTRODUCTION: The unjustified exclusion of older participants from clinical trials creates research populations that are non-representative, in turn creating difficulties applying research to the target populations. The aim of this study was to assess the proportion of randomised control trials (RCTs) that have unexplained upper age limits and review whether this proportion is reducing over time. METHODS: All RCTs in BMJ, Lancet, JAMA and NEJM from 1998 to 2015 were reviewed to identify any specified upper-age cut off and, if so, whether this exclusion criterion had an explanation in the text...

We report the case of a 29 year old pregnant female who experienced itching with erythematous plaques on prophylactic enoxaparin for recurrent fetal losses. These lesions generalized on rechallenge but erythema and itching gradually resolved after 4 weeks of discontinuation. Cutaneous adverse events with heparin have been reported (Villanueva et al. in Actas Dermosifiliogr 103:816-819, 2012; Neloska et al. in Acta Dermatovenerol Croat 23:223-224, 2015; Maldonado et al. in Clin Exp Dermatol 37:707-711, 2012; Schindewolf et al...

Down's syndrome (DS), the most common genetic cause of significant intellectual disability in children and adults is caused by the trisomy of either all or a part of human chromosome 21 (HSA21). Patients with DS mostly suffer from characteristic tumor types. Although individual patients of DS are at a higher risk for acute leukemia and testicular cancers, other types of solid tumors including breast cancers are mostly uncommon and have significantly lower-than-expected age-adjusted incidence rates. Except for an increased risk of retinoblastomas, and lymphomas, the risk of developing solid tumors has been found to be lower in both children and adults, and breast cancer was found to be almost absent (Hasle H...

BACKGROUND: Brazil boasts a health scheme that aspires to provide universal coverage, but its surgical system has rarely been analysed. In an effort to strengthen surgical systems worldwide, the Lancet Commission on Global Surgery proposed a collection of 6 standardised indicators: 2-hour access to surgery, surgical workforce density, surgical volume, perioperative mortality rate (POMR) and protection against impoverishing and catastrophic expenditure. This study aims to characterise the Brazilian surgical health system with these newly devised indicators while gaining understanding on the complexity of the indicators themselves...

INTRODUCTION: 5 billion people around the world do not have access to safe, affordable, timely surgical care. This series of qualitative interviews was launched by The Lancet Commission on Global Surgery (LCoGS) with the aim of understanding the contextual challenges-the specific circumstances-faced by surgical care providers in low-resource settings who care for impoverished patients, and how those providers overcome these challenges. METHODS: From January 2014 to February 2015, 20 LCoGS collaborators conducted semistructured interviews with 148 surgical providers in low-resource settings in 21 countries...
