Skin Lesions after Kidney Transplantation: An updated Review Including Recent Rare Cases

Ethem Unal

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: February 28, 2016

Skin disease is a significant cause of morbidity in chronically immunosuppressed patients, including organ transplant recipients. Cutaneous neoplasms are much more common in renal transplant recipients than in the general population, and are the most common malignancies in these patients. Better surgical techniques and recent advances in immunosuppressive therapy allow patients to survive for many years, free from any complications due to rejection....

Blockade of ASC but not NLRP3 Inhibits DC Proliferation and T cell Activation in Response to Alloantigen

Sashi G Kasmisetty, Alana Shigeoka, Reza Elahimehr, Andrew Scheinok and Dianne B McKay

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

The NLRP3 inflammasome is a multimeric protein complex consisting of the sensor molecule NACHT, LRR and PYD domains-containing protein 3 (NLRP3), the adaptor molecule Apoptosis-associated speck-like protein containing a caspase recruitment domain (ASC) and caspase-1. Molecules with conserved molecular motifs trigger the assembly of the inflammasome and lead to maturation of pro-inflammatory cytokines that induce a mature inflammatory response. Emerging data suggest that inflammasome activation i...

Assistive Technology for Promoting Adaptive Behaviors by Children with Rett Syndrome

Fabrizio Stasolla and Adele Boccasini

Article Type: Short Note | First Published: January 25, 2016

Rett syndrome (RS) is a progressive neuro-developmental disorder due to mutations of methyl CpG binding protein 2 gene (MECP2), located on Xq28 chromosome, primarily occurring in females and first described by Andreas Rett. It is characterized by four main stages, namely: (a) stagnation, (b) regression, (c) stationary, and (d) deterioration. During the first stage, occurring with an early onset and beginning between 6 and 18 months of age, the child development is overall arrested....

Improvement of the Muscle Strength, Gait, and Functional Parameters with Rehabilitation Program in a Patient with Type-IV Spinal Muscular Atrophy

Mustafa Turgut Yildizgoren, Timur Ekiz, Kasim Osmanoglu, Onur Velioglu and Hayal Guler

Article Type: Letter to Editor | First Published: March 09, 2016

A 52-year-old man was seen due to weakness and gait disorder. The patient declared that symptoms started eight years ago and worsened over time. The medical and family history was otherwise unremarkable. Physical examination revealed weakness (4/5) bilaterally of both upper and lower extremity muscles (prominent in the proximal group muscles). He was able to walk with a lofstrand crutch on level surfaces, but not on stairs....

Diagnostic Challenge of Ovarian Teratoma Related Anti N-Methyl-D-Aspartate Receptor Encephalitis in a Patient with Giant Arachnoid Cyst

Kilinc O, Gulatar B, Gonul O, Yildizhan B and Midi I

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 26, 2016

Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAr) encephalitis is well-characterized and treatable subtype of inflammatory encephalitis. This type of encephalitis is often associated with ovarian teratoma in young women and characterized by memory deficits, seizures, confusion and psychological disturbances. In this report, we presented a case of anti-NMDAr encephalitis in a woman with a previously asymptomatic, giant posterior fossa arachnoid cyst (AC). With our report, we present our clinical approac...

Therapeutic Strategies towards Allergic Diseases

Lin Kun and Li Li

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: January 10, 2016

Allergic disease is a prevalent clinical and public health problem, and is among the most common health issues worldwide. The therapeutic strategies include two major categories: allergen-specific immunotherapy (AIT) and non-specific therapies. AIT is associated with improved tolerance to allergen challenge, with a decrease in immediate-phase and late-phase allergic inflammation....

Case Report: Addition of Naltrexone and Bupropion to Lorcaserin to Manage Olanzapine-induced Weight Gain

Kevin Bera, Eric Tran and Charles T. Nguyen

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 25, 2016

Antipsychotic medications, both typical and atypical, share the potential side effect of weight gain with atypical agents carrying a greater risk. Atypical antipsychotics, such as clozapine and olanzapine, which antagonize the 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) subtype 5-HT2C receptor, have been associated with a higher likelihood to induce weight gain....

Tetanus: A Case Report following an Upper Extremity Injury

John D. Hill, Eric Wombwell, Jelyn Miller and Gina M. Rochetti

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: February 20, 2016

Clostridium tetani is a spore-forming, toxin-producing, anaerobic, gram-positive bacillus which enters the CNS causing painful muscle contractions within the host. These painful spasms and stiffness typically manifest initially in the form of trismus, or lockjaw. According to the CDC, tetanus treatment includes the administration of Tetanus Immune Globulin (TIG), a tetanus toxoid booster, agents to control muscle spasms (benzodiazepines), and antibiotics (metronidazole)....

Acute Rhabdomyolysis and Acute Cocaine Intoxication

Gargantilla Madera P, Martin Cabrejas BM and Pintor Holguin E

Article Type: Short Commentary | First Published: January 21, 2016

Rhabdomyolysis is a condition resulting from the release of large quantities of myocyte breakdown products into the circulation, following injury to striated muscles. It is a clinical and biochemical syndrome, defined as an elevation of serum creatine kinasa activity (sCK) to at least 10 times the normal upper limit followed by a rapid decrease of the sCK level back to normal values....

Laennec and the Stethoscope

Gargantilla P, Martin BM and Pintor E

Article Type: Short Commentary | First Published: January 16, 2016

On the occasion of the bicentenary of the birth of the stethoscope we pay homage to this brilliant invention. The stethoscope may be the one instrument common to all doctors and also several health professionals, no other symbol so strongly identifies a doctor than a stethoscope dangling around the neck. Until 1816 physicians used direct auscultation (placing the ear on the chest wall), it was known to Hippocrates but little practiced. It was hard to perform this act on obese or endowed females....
