Amblyopia is one of the most common visual disorders in children. Current therapy of amblyopia is an occlusion therapy of the stronger eye with an occlusion patch until the best corrected visual acuity is achieved. The success of occlusion therapy essentially depends on the compliance of the children and their parents. There is a commercially available 8 × 12 mm small TheraMon microsensor (TheraMon(®)-Chip, MC Technology GmbH). This sensor allows a simple objective documentation of the therapy compliance of patches and glasses...

The objective of this study is to assess toll-like receptor-9 (TLR9) expression in CD3-positive T lymphocytes and CD19-positive B lymphocytes in systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients and to study their relation to the extent of skin fibrosis, disease characteristics, and severity as well as the functional status. Fifty-five female SSc patients and 30 matched controls were included. Skin thickness was scored according to the modified Rodnan skin score (mRss). The severity of major organ involvement was assessed using the Medsger severity score (MSS)...

Nelarabine, a water soluble prodrug of 9-β-D-arabinofuranosylguanine (ara-G), is a T-cell specific purine nucleoside analogue. Given its activity in relapsed and refractory T acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) and T lymphoblastic lymphoma (T-LBL), we sought to define its role in the frontline treatment of adult patients. Therefore, we conducted a single arm phase 2 study to determine the safety and efficacy of nelarabine in combination with hyper-CVAD in newly diagnosed patients. For induction/consolidation, patients received eight cycles of hyper-CVAD alternating with high-dose methotrexate and cytarabine plus two cycles of nelarabine given at a dose of 650 mg/m(2) intravenously daily for 5 days...

The issues of burnout and its consequences are some of the most prevalent topics in conversations about the practice of medicine today. Many reports have focused on the contributors that fuel this epidemic, but the time has come to begin to focus on solutions. Prominent national efforts, including a National Academy of Medicine collaborative task force and the 2017 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education common program requirements' focus on wellness, are presenting opportunities for academic medicine faculty to take the lead in turning this tide...

The aim of this study was to investigate the changes in the phenolic profile in different organs (buds, flowers, fruits and leaves) from Chemlali olive variety cultivated in the Center of Tunisia according to development stage. Phenolics recovery was carried out using aqueous methanol from freeze-dried powdered tissues. The extracts were then analyzed by using high performance liquid chromatography coupled to time of flight and ion trap mass spectrometry detectors. Qualitatively, secoiridoids, flavonoids, simple phenols, cinnamic acid derivatives and lignans were identified in the analyzed extracts...

OBJECTIVE: The majority of patients undergoing partial nephrectomy (PN) present with a clinical T1a tumor with both kidneys present. Some groups have advocated using Off-Clamp (Off-C) techniques to eliminate warm ischemia whenever possible, even when elective. We evaluated whether Off-C technique during robotic PN (RPN) provides any functional benefit over main arterial clamping (MAC) in these patients. Subjects/Patients and Methods: 351 patients with a R.E.N.A.L. Nephrometry Score (RNS) <10, T1a tumor and two kidneys who underwent RPN from five high volume surgeons between 2008 and 2016 were retrospectively identified from a multi-institutional database...

BACKGROUND: With the continuous and enormous spread of mobile technologies, mHealth has evolved as a new subfield of eHealth. While eHealth is broadly focused on information and communication technologies, mHealth seeks to explore more into mobile devices and wireless communication. Since mobile phone penetration has exceeded other infrastructure in low and middle-income countries (LMICs), mHealth is seen as a promising component to provide pervasive and patient-centered care. OBJECTIVES: The aim of our research work for this paper is to examine the mHealth literature to identify application areas, target diseases, and mHealth service and technology types that are most appropriate for LMICs...

BACKGROUND: Pracinostat is a potent histone deacetylase inhibitor with antitumor activity in both solid tumor and acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cell lines. Pracinostat is reported to have modest clinical activity in patients with advanced solid tumors. Given the higher preclinical sensitivity of hematologic malignancies to pracinostat, the authors conducted a phase 1 study to assess the safety, maximum tolerated dose, recommended phase 2 dose, efficacy, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of pracinostat in patients with advanced hematological malignancies...

PURPOSE: To evaluate and compare the accuracy of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in predicting the final pathologic tumor size of partial nephrectomy specimens. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed a multi-institutional database of 807 patients who underwent robotic partial nephrectomy for a cT1a renal mass from 2006 to 2016. Patients who had a solitary tumor with complete data on the baseline imaging modality and the tumor size (baseline and pathologic) (n = 349) were included for analysis...

OBJECTIVES: To analyze the outcomes of robot-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) in patients with a solitary kidney in a large multi-institutional database. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 2755 patients in the Vattikuti Collective Quality Initiative database underwent RAPN by 22 surgeons at 14 centers in nine 9 countries. Out of these patients, 74 underwent RAPN in solitary kidney between 2007 and 2016. A retrospective analysis of the functional and oncological outcomes was performed...

The major histocompatibility complex class I-related chain A (MICA), expressed on cell surface, plays an important role in the elimination of both virus-infected cells and tumor through the activation of the natural killer (NK) receptor NKG2D. A polymorphic change from methionine (Met) to valine (Val) at amino acid position 129 categorizes MICA alleles into strong and weak binders for the NKG2D receptor and has been found in a variety of immune-related disorders. In this study, we investigated the potential interaction between genetic polymorphism of MICA and the development of breast cancer...

CONTEXT: Robotic surgery has significantly advanced the minimally-invasive management of kidney tumors with extension into the inferior vena cava requiring caval cross-clamping and tumor thrombectomy. Additional techniques have recently been developed to continue the evolution of this complex procedure and extend its indications. OBJECTIVE: To review the current state of the art as regards robotic nephrectomy with inferior vena cava thrombectomy (RNIT). EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: A systematic review of the Medline database was performed...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Environmental factors have been identified that affect risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but little is known about the effects of sex hormones on liver cancer development or outcome. The authors investigated whether menopause hormone therapy (MHT) affects risk, age at onset, or outcome of HCC. METHODS: We performed a case-control study of 234 female patients treated for HCC at a tertiary medical center and with 282 healthy women (controls) from January 1, 2004 through May 31, 2015...
