BACKGROUND: Many patients require discontinuation of benzodiazepines due to a reduction in drug efficacy over time, the development of a sedative use disorder, or unwanted side effects. Benzodiazepine discontinuation can pose a significant challenge for prescribing clinicians due to potential withdrawal symptoms and a recurrence of psychiatric complaints. METHODS: A PubMed literature search was conducted using the medical subject heading of benzodiazepines in combination with the following key words: discontinuation, withdrawal, detoxification, cessation, dependence, addiction, substance use disorders, or long term...

J Michael Brown
Methods are evaluated in solution of the inverse problem associated with determination of elastic moduli for crystals of arbitrary symmetry from elastic wave velocities measured in many crystallographic directions. A package of MATLAB functions provides a robust and flexible environment for analysis of ultrasonic, Brillouin, or Impulsive Stimulated Light Scattering datasets. Three inverse algorithms are considered: the gradient-based methods of Levenberg-Marquardt and Backus-Gilbert, and a non-gradient-based (Nelder-Mead) simplex approach...

INTRODUCTION: Early infantile epileptic encephalopathy syndrome (EIEE), also known as Ohtahara syndrome, is an age-dependent epileptic encephalopathy syndrome defined by clinical features and electroencephalographic findings. Epileptic disorders with refractory seizures beginning in the neonatal period and/or early infancy have a potential risk of premature mortality, including sudden death. We aimed to identify the causes of death in EIEE and conducted a literature survey of fatal outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Step-up therapy is the recommended therapy for infected necrotizing pancreatitis (INP). However, the most appropriate secondary therapy for use after initial drainage has not been fully determined. This meta-analysis was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of retroperitoneal versus open intraperitoneal necrosectomy as part of a step-up strategy for INP. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eight online databases were searched for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and cohorts comparing retroperitoneal and open intraperitoneal step-up approaches for treating INP...

BACKGROUND: Although ventricular fibromas are a rare, they are the second most common type of cardiac tumor in children. While histologically benign, they have a propensity to cause malignant arrhythmias, with cardiac arrest often being the first presentation.; OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the arrhythmia risk, and management strategies for pediatric ventricular fibromas. METHODS: Fifteen centers in the British Paediatric Arrhythmia Group network were contacted to partake in the study to contribute cases...

REVIEW
Giuseppe Grasso
Amyloid-β peptide (Aβ) accumulation and aggregation have been considered for many years the main cause of Alzheimer's disease (AD), and therefore have been the principal target of investigation as well as of the proposed therapeutic approaches (Grasso [2011] Mass Spectrom Rev. 30: 347-365). However, the amyloid cascade hypothesis, which considers Aβ accumulation the only causative agent of the disease, has proven to be incomplete if not wrong. In recent years, actors such as metal ions, oxidative stress, and other cofactors have been proposed as possible co-agents or, in some cases, main causative factors of AD...

In the search for interventions against aging and age-related diseases, biological screening platforms are indispensable tools to identify anti-aging compounds among large substance libraries. The budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, has emerged as a powerful chemical and genetic screening platform, as it combines a rapid workflow with experimental amenability and the availability of a wide range of genetic mutant libraries. Given the amount of conserved genes and aging mechanisms between yeast and human, testing candidate anti-aging substances in yeast gene-deletion or overexpression collections, or de novo derived mutants, has proven highly successful in finding potential molecular targets...

BACKGROUND: The clinical course and optimal treatment strategy for asymptomatic aneurysms of the extracranial carotid artery (ECAA) are unknown. We report our single-center experience with conservative management of patients with an asymptomatic ECAA. METHODS: A search in our hospital records from 1998 to 2013 revealed 20 patients (mean age 52 years, SD 12.5) with 23 ECAA, defined as a 150% or more fusiform dilation or any saccular dilatation compared to the healthy internal carotid artery...

The Internet research is mainly driven by data. Obtaining such data by planning and launching measurement campaigns is rather time consuming and costly. Much more efficient, and in many cases, sufficient data acquisition strategy is to exploit the existing datasets available in public databases, repositories, and documents. Hence, the public data sources related to the Internet usage and other Internet statistics are systematically surveyed and categorized to make the search for the Internet data much easier and faster...

Nenad Vukmirović, Miloš Janjić, Petar M Djurić, Miljko Erić
In this paper, we propose a massive MIMO (multiple-input-multiple-output) architecture with distributed steerable phased antenna subarrays for position estimation in the mmWave range. We also propose localization algorithms and a multistage/multiresolution search strategy that resolve the problem of high side lobes, which is inherent in spatially coherent localization. The proposed system is intended for use in line-of-sight indoor environments. Time synchronization between the transmitter and the receiving system is not required, and the algorithms can also be applied to a multiuser scenario...

BACKGROUND: In patients undergoing atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation, despite uninterrupted oral anticoagulants (OACs) have been recommended, no consensus has emerged regarding to whether uninterrupted novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are superior to uninterrupted vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) for the periprocedural antithrombotic management. This meta-analysis aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of uninterrupted NOACs and uninterrupted VKAs in patients undergoing AF ablation. METHODS: Databases were searched for articles published up to March 20, 2018...

INTRODUCTION: Youth in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) are at increased risk for poor mental health due to economic and social disadvantage. Interventions that strengthen families may equip children and adolescents with the supports and resources to fulfill their potential and buffer them from future stressors and adversity. Due to human resource constraints, task-sharing-delivery of interventions by nonspecialists-may be an effective strategy to facilitate the dissemination of mental health interventions in low resource contexts...
