Sulfatide (3-O-sulfogalactosylceramide, SM4) is a glycosphingolipid, highly multifunctional and particularly enriched in the myelin sheath of neurons. The role of sulfatide has been implicated in various biological fields such as the nervous system, immune system, host-pathogen recognition and infection, beta cell function and haemostasis/thrombosis. Thus, alterations in sulfatide metabolism and production are associated with several human diseases such as neurological and immunological disorders and cancers. Read More

Purpose: Large inrush of patients through Emergency Department during influenza season can be dramatic.The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of an emergency preventive strategy, namely admission of patients with influenza in multiple-bed room with patients free from influenza, on the occurrence of hospital-acquired influenza (HAI).Methods: When a patient with an influenza RT-PCR diagnosis was hospitalized in a multiple-bed room, the emergency preventive strategy was applied: selection of non-immunocompromised neighbor, implementation of physical barriers (rigid screen pulled between beds, surgical mask for healthcare workers and visitors), preemptive Oseltamivir therapy for the neighbor.

Purpose: The use of Electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy (ENB) for the diagnosis of pulmonary peripheral lesions is still debated due to its variable diagnostic yield; a new 4D ENB system, acquiring inspiratory and expiratory computed tomography (CT) scans, overcomes respiratory motion and uses tracked sampling instruments, reaching higher diagnostic yields. We aimed at evaluating diagnostic yield and accuracy of a 4D ENB system in sampling pulmonary lesions and at describing their influencing factors.Methods: We conducted a three-year retrospective observational study including all patients with pulmonary lesions who underwent 4D ENB with diagnostic purposes; all the factors potentially influencing diagnosis were recorded.
