Introduction: Accurate and prompt microbiological diagnosis of prosthetic joint infection (PJI) is crucial for successful antimicrobial treatment. Studies have shown the diagnostic utility of sonication of explanted implants in total joint arthroplasty but all did not use consensus statements for defining PJI. We evaluated the diagnostic utility of culture of samples obtained by sonication of explanted implants compared with periprosthetic tissue cultures (PTC) for the diagnosis of PJI using Musculoskeletal Infection Society (MSIS) consensus criteria.

The pesticides are used in several fields of agriculture and farms to protect crops against harmful insects and herbs. The increased and uncontrolled use of these pollutants is very hazardous for the population health. Consumption of contaminated food matrices with these pesticides could impair the cell integrity and its molecular function. Read More

Background: Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic heterogeneous disease with considerable burden from disease activity and damage. A novel clinical treatment target in the form of the lupus low disease activity state (LLDAS) has been recently reported, with retrospective validation showing that time spent in LLDAS translates to reduced damage accrual. The objectives of this study were to describe the frequency and identify the predictors of attaining LLDAS in a large multinational cohort of patients with SLE. Read More
