BACKGROUND: Biosimilars of anti-tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-α agents have now become clinically available for the treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). AIM: We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the efficacy and safety of biosimilars of anti-TNF-α agents in patients with IBD. METHODS: Electronic databases were searched. The outcomes were the pooled rates of clinical response or remission, sustained clinical response or remission, and adverse events in patients with IBD induced with or switched to biosimilars of anti-TNF-α agents...

Currently available treatment options for melasma include prevention of UV radiation, topical lightening agents, chemical peels, and light-based and laser therapies. However, none have shown effective and sustained results, with incomplete clearance and frequent recurrences. There has been increasing interest recently in oral medications and dietary supplements in improving melasma. We sought to evaluate the efficacy and safety/tolerability of oral medications and dietary supplements for the treatment of melasma...

BACKGROUND: Riboflavin is the precursor of important redox cofactors such as flavin mononucleotide (FMN) and flavin adenine dinucleotide, required for several biological processes. Vibrio cholerae, a pathogenic bacterium responsible for the cholera disease, possesses the ability to biosynthesize de novo as well as to uptake riboflavin through the riboflavin biosynthetic pathway (RBP) and the RibN importer, respectively. The intra-organism relationship between riboflavin biosynthesis and uptake functions has not been studied...

BACKGROUND: Patients suffering from depression experience significant mood, anxiety, and cognitive symptoms. Currently, most antidepressants work by altering neurotransmitter activity in the brain to improve these symptoms. However, in the last decade, research has revealed an extensive bidirectional communication network between the gastrointestinal tract and the central nervous system, referred to as the "gut-brain axis." Advances in this field have linked psychiatric disorders to changes in the microbiome, making it a potential target for novel antidepressant treatments...

The increased popularity of social media and mobile gaming among young adults provides an opportunity for innovative nutrition programs. This review evaluated the efficacy of these strategies in interventions targeted at 18- to 35-year-olds. The protocol was guided by the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA). Ten scientific databases, information technology conference proceedings, and gray literature were searched. Two reviewers conducted screening, data extraction, and quality assessments...

Primary biliary cholangitis is an autoimmune condition characterized by destruction of intrahepatic bile ducts. It causes debilitating symptoms, which dramatically affect the patient's quality of life. Pruritus affects 60% to 70% of individuals with primary biliary cholangitis and leads to sleep disturbances, fatigue, depression and suicidal ideation. A complete search was done with studies from PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science, Cochrane database, Countway library and CINAHL with specific search terms. This narrative review was prepared after a comprehensive literature review...

PURPOSE: To analyze the impact on clinical management when musculoskeletal radiologists render second-opinion consultations during multidisciplinary orthopedic oncology conference. METHODS: A PACS database was searched for secondary interpretations on outside MRI studies reviewed during a multidisciplinary orthopedic oncology conference from January 2014 to December 2016. Reports were compared with the original interpretations, when available. Reports were categorized using a 7-point scale: I (no discrepancy), II (undetected clinically insignificant abnormality), III (clinically insignificant difference in interpretation), IV (difference in imaging follow-up recommendation), V (equivocal initial interpretation with subsequent definitive subspecialty interpretation), VI (clinically significant difference in interpretation), VII (failure to detect a clinically significant abnormality)...

The aim of this working group was to establish a ROMSE (recording of orofacial manifestations in people with rare diseases) database to provide clinicians, patients, and their families with better information about these diseases. In 2011, we began to search the databases Orphanet, OMIM(®) (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man(®)), and PubMed, for rare diseases with orofacial symptoms, and since 2013, the collected information has been incorporated into a web-based, freely accessible database. To date, 471 rare diseases with orofacial signs have been listed on ROMSE, and 10 main categories with 99 subcategories of signs such as different types of dental anomalies, changes in the oral mucosa, dysgnathia, and orofacial clefts, have been defined...

BACKGROUND: Neglect is often overlooked in adolescence, due in part to assumptions about autonomy and misinterpretation of behaviors being part of normal adolescent development. Emotional maltreatment (abuse or neglect) has a damaging effect throughout the lifespan, but is rarely recognized amongst adolescents. Our review aims to identify features that adolescents experiencing neglect and/ or emotional maltreatment report. METHOD: A rapid review methodology searched 8 databases (1990-2014), supplemented by hand searching journals, and references, identifying 2,568 abstracts...

PURPOSE: Robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) provides significant advantages in short-term oncological outcomes for prostate cancer patients. However, data regarding the long-term cancer control outcomes of RARP are limited and inconsistent. This study aimed to evaluate these long-term outcomes. METHODS: Medline, Scopus, and other databases were searched for studies published from January 2010 to July 2016. Case series and prospective cohort studies on the long-term cancer control outcomes of patients who underwent RARP were subjected to meta-analyses by using the R statistical software...

Background Drug interactions (DIs) are a significant cause of medication-related problems. The aging population, high chronic diseases prevalence and polypharmacy are closely associated factors. Aim of the review To study the prevalence, types and associated factors of DIs in multimorbidity patients of over 65 years of age in primary care. Methods Relevant studies on DI prevalence in this population were reviewed in PubMed, Cochrane Library and EMBASE (January 2000-December 2015). Independent variables (duration, target population, age, sex, mean of drugs and diseases, geographical localization, DI databases used and study designs) and dependent variables (prevalence, number of DIs per 100 patients and per patient, number of clinically-relevant DIs per 100 patients, most common DI and associated factors) were classified for each article...
