#1
Ehud Chorin, Rivki Taub, Aron Medina, Nir Flint, Sami Viskin, Jesaia Benhorin
Aims: Type 3 long QT syndrome (LQT3) is caused by gain-of-function mutations in the cardiac sodium channel gene (SCN5A). Previous reports on the long-term use of sodium channel blockers in LQT3 are sparse. The objective of the current study was to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of flecainide therapy in patients with LQT3 who carry the D1790G SCN5A mutation. Methods and results: The study population comprised 30 D1790G carriers who were treated with flecainide and followed for 1-215 months (mean 145 ± 54 months, median 140 months)...

During recent years, the possibility to create custom biocompatible nanoshapes using DNA as a building material has rapidly emerged. Further, these rationally designed DNA structures could be exploited in positioning pivotal molecules, such as enzymes, with nanometer-level precision. This feature could be used in the fabrication of artificial biochemical machinery that is able to mimic the complex reactions found in living cells. Currently, DNA-enzyme hybrids can be used to control (multi-enzyme) cascade reactions and to regulate the enzyme functions and the reaction pathways...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Pneumonectomy is associated with high risk of respiratory complications. Our objective was to determine if transfusions are associated with increased rate of ARDS and respiratory failure in adults undergoing elective pneumonectomy. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study of consecutive pneumonectomies undertaken at a tertiary hospital (2003-2013). Multivariable logistic regression was performed to adjust for confounding factors. RESULTS: ARDS and respiratory failure occurred in 12...

The isolation and physical material properties of suberin fatty acids (SFAs) were investigated with special reference to their potential applications as novel pharmaceutical excipients. SFAs were isolated from outer birch bark (OBB) with a new extractive hydrolysis method. The present simplified isolation process resulted in a moderate batch yield and chemical purity of SFAs, but further development is needed for establishing batch-to-batch variation. Cryogenic milling was the method of choice for the particle size reduction of SFAs powder...

OBJECTIVE: The involvement of the dura is a rare yet potentially life-threatening complication during cholesteatoma surgery. Thus, the knowledge about treatment and consequences of this issue is of great importance to every ear surgeon. METHODS: This retrospective study analyzed the dura involvement with regard to the type of defect, reconstruction method used, and the post-operative complications of 1291 pediatric and adult cholesteatoma surgeries performed at an academic tertiary care center over a twelve-year period...

BACKGROUND: A mother's infection with placental malaria (PM) can affect her child's susceptibility to malaria, although the mechanism remains unclear. The fetus acquires a small amount of maternal cells and DNA known as maternal microchimerism (MMc), and we hypothesized that PM increases MMc and that MMc alters risk of P. falciparum malaria during infancy. METHODS: In a nested cohort from Muheza, Tanzania, we evaluated the presence and level of cord blood MMc in offspring of women with and without PM...

BACKGROUND: Melanoma in situ (MIS) is a noninvasive form of melanoma for which nonsurgical therapeutic options continue to be explored. The off-label use of topical 5% imiquimod cream in the management of MIS has shown potential but reported recurrence rates vary considerably between 0% and 40%. Furthermore, the long-term efficacy of imiquimod is not well established. OBJECTIVE: To determine the recurrence rate of MIS among patients treated with topical 5% imiquimod cream at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center with at least 1 year of follow-up...

PURPOSE: The data on the association between hormone replacement therapy and the increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in postmenopausal women are conflicting. The observed differences between oral estrogen and oral estrogen-progestogen combination formulations may be the result of bias from depletion of susceptibles. METHODS: We used United Kingdom's Clinical Practice Research Datalink to identify the cohort of all women aged 50 to 79 during 1987-2008, with all incident cases of VTE occurring during the study period identified...

Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disorder characterized by diffuse musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance and cognitive impairment. A significant number of fibromyalgia patients do not respond adequately to the current drugs (pregabalin, milnacipran, duloxetine) approved for fibromyalgia treatment by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Thus, there is still a need for adjunctive therapies. Naltrexone is an opioid receptor antagonist used to treat alcohol and opioid dependence. It is hypothesized that low dose naltrexone causes transient blockade of opioid receptors centrally resulting in a rebound of endorphin function which may attenuate pain in fibromyalgia...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective data analysis. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to analyze correlations between spinopelvic configuration and fracture pattern or location in traumatic vertebral fractures. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: The spinopelvic configuration represented by the pelvic incidence (PI) angle showed to have a strong correlation with the occurrence of degenerative diseases of the thoracolumbar spine. No data are available on whether there is an influence of the PI angle on traumatic vertebral lesions as well...

Mitophagy plays pivotal roles in the selective disposal of unwanted mitochondria, and accumulation of damaged mitochondria has been linked to ageing-related diseases. However, definitive proof that mitophagy regulates mitochondrial quality in vivo is lacking. It is also largely unclear whether damaged mitochondria are the cause or just the consequence of these diseases. We previously showed that FUNDC1 is a mitophagy receptor that interacts with LC3 to mediate mitophagy in response to hypoxia in cultured cells...

Positron emission tomography (PET) radioligands for translocator protein 18 kDa (TSPO) are widely used to measure neuroinflammation, but controversy exists whether second-generation radioligands are superior to the prototypical agent (11)C-( R)-PK11195 in human imaging. This study sought to quantitatively measure the "signal to background" ratio (assessed as binding potential ( BPND)) of (11)C-( R)-PK11195 compared to one of the most promising second-generation radioligands, (11)C-DPA-713. Healthy subjects had dynamic PET scans and arterial blood measurements of radioligand after injection of either (11)C-( R)-PK11195 (16 subjects) or (11)C-DPA-713 (22 subjects)...

Introduction Airway management is one of many challenges that medical providers face in disaster response operations. The use of personal protective equipment (PPE), in particular, was found to be associated with higher failure rates and a prolonged time to achieve airway control. Hypothesis/Problem The objective of this study was to determine whether video laryngoscopy could facilitate the performance of endotracheal intubation by disaster responders wearing Level C PPE. METHODS: In this prospective, randomized, crossover study, a convenience sample of practicing prehospital providers were recruited...

BACKGROUND: Tuberculosis (TB) ranks as the second leading cause of deaths due to infectious diseases. Although global efforts have been made to control TB, still, this is a serious threat as Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) produced resistance against both the first- and second-line drugs. The increasing incidence of multidrug-resistant, extremely drug resistant, and totally drug-resistant TB worldwide requires extra efforts to search for new anti-TB drugs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The present study evaluated the antimycobacterial activities of Citrullus colocynthis, Calotropis procera, Ricinus communis, Capparis decidua, and Fagonia cretica plants' extracts against rifampicin-sensitive (H37Rv) and rifampicin-resistant (TMC331) strains of MTB...
