Meta-Analysis of the Clinical Efficacy of the Placebo Effect from Tumour-Necrosis-Factor Inhibitors to Treat Rheumatoid Arthritis after Methotrexate Failure

Julie Azais, Pascale Vergne-Salle, Christine Bonnet, Carine Dufauret-Lombard, Richard Treves and Philippe Bertin

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 31, 2016

Tumour-necrosis-factor (TNF) inhibitors, used to treat rheumatoid arthritis (RA), have non-specific (placebo effect) and specific effects. This meta-analysis appraises these effects within the first 3 months of treatment. Data were collected from ACR 20, 50 and 70 scores at week-24 from RA patients receiving TNF-blockers or a placebo after methotrexate (MTX) failure....

The AIDS Myth at 30

Erhard Geissler

Article Type: Short Review | First Published: March 03, 2016

In 1985 the KGB and East Berlin's professor of Biology started the AIDS disinformation campaign by accusing the United States of America of having constructed and spread the AIDS agent in the course of biological weapons research. Now, 30 years later, a German authority, The Federal Commissioner for the Records of former East Germany's State Security Service, the "Stasi", is spreading disinformation regarding the alleged substantial involvement of Stasi officers in the campaign....

Pharmacological Conditioning of Brain Dead Donor Hearts with Erythropoietin and Glyceryl Trinitrate: Clinical Experience

Gayathri Kumarasinghe, Arjun Iyer, Mark Hicks, Alasdair Watson, Hong Chew, Ling Gao, Jeanette Villanueva, Andrew Jabbour, Eugene Kotlyar, Christopher S Hayward, Anne M Keogh, Emily Granger, Paul C Jansz, Kumud K Dhital, Peter S Macdonald and Phillip Spratt

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: April 01, 2016

With the increasing success of heart transplantation, older and higher-risk donors and recipients are being accepted for transplantation. The risk of primary graft dysfunction (PGD) is thus increased. We investigated a 'pharmacological conditioning' strategy, where Celsior preservation solution supplemented with glyceryl trinitrate (GTN) and erythropoietin (EPO) was used for cardioplegia and hypothermic storage, and determined graft recovery and patient survival after cardiac transplantation....

Post-cardiotomy Rescue Extracorporeal Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in Neonates with Single Ventricle after Intractable Cardiac Arrest: Attrition after Hospital Discharge and Predictors of Outcome

Anastasios C. Polimenakos, Patrice Wojtyla, Vincent Rizzo, Chawki F. ElZein and Michel N. Ilbawi

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 28, 2016

Extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) in children with cardiac arrest refractory to conventional cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has been reported with encouraging results. We reviewed outcomes of neonates with functional single ventricle (FSV) surviving post-cardiotomy ECPR after hospital discharge....

Circulating Progenitor Cells in Regenerative Technologies: A Realistic Strategy in Bone Regeneration?

Jessica B. Chang and Justine C. Lee

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: February 26, 2016

The regeneration of bone is a complex physiological process involved in fracture healing as well as defects created by trauma, infection, tumor resection, congenital abnormalities, and impaired or insufficient regeneration. Various bone regeneration and repair strategies exist to augment surgical reconstructive procedures, including use of alloplastic and allogenic materials, distraction osteogenesis, osteoconductive scaffolds, and bone morphogenetic proteins....

Lessons Learned from Collecting Cost Data from Physicians for Economic Evaluations: Two Methods Compared

Maria Isabel Roldos and Vanessa Bustamante

Article Type: Case Study | First Published: March 18, 2016

Health care utilization databases rely on the vested commitment of patients and their families, but mainly from medical care personnel to provide information of diagnoses, procedures, and follow-up visits. Most developed countries produce health care utilization data from hospital and physician sources through large studies funded by federal research monies. In developing countries, these databases are scare....

Radial-Linear Ablation in Peri-pulmonary Vein Area Prevents Inducible Atrial Fibrillation in Dogs

Xue Zhao, Yinxiang Zhu, Xiang Mei, Jiayou Zhang, Jianqiang Hu, Wenliang Lu, Xingui Guo, Li Dai, Kailei Shi and Zhenguo Liu

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 16, 2016

A total of 22 dogs of both sexes (5-7 years old) were divided into two groups: 10 in control and 12 in ablation group. Multiple radial-linear lesions were created from PV orifice to peri-PV area in the dogs with CARTO guidance. The control animals went through the same procedure except ablation. AF inducibility was evaluated before and immediately after the procedure. All animals had inducible AF (100%) by atrial pacing combined with or without isoproterenol at baseline....

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 26, 2016

This was a cross-sectional study done on patients living with type-2 diabetes on follow-up at the diabetes out-patient clinic (DOPC) at the KNH. Systematic sampling method was used to recruit 220 study subjects. The PHQ-9 questionnaire was used to assess for co-morbid depression. Socio-demographic and clinical details were obtained both from the subjects and their medical records. Physical examination was done, including blood pressure and BMI determined. Blood samples were collected from the cu...

Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction in the Elderly: Conventional and Emerging Prognostic Biomarkers in Daily Clinical Practice

Paula Martinez Santos, Elena Batlle Lopez, Isidre Vilacosta, Beatriz Sanchez Sauce, Elena Espana Barrio, Julia Jimenez Valtierra, Raquel Campuzano Ruiz, Ma Dolores Martin Rios

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: February 27, 2016

Albumin serum levels and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT proBNP) have shown to be useful in predicting outcome in patients with heart failure (HF) and systolic dysfunction. Carbohydrate antigen 125 (CA 125) has also been associated to a higher risk of mortality and rehospitalization in patients with HF and impaired left ventricular systolic function. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic role of these biomarkers among acute decompensated HF with preserved ejection fra...
