COVID-19: unravelling the clinical progression of nature's virtually perfect biological weapon.

Ann Transl Med 2020 Jun;8(11):693

Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, The Heart Institute, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Ohio, USA.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has shocked the world and caused morbidity and mortality on an unprecedented level in the era of modern medicine. Evidence generated to-date on the virulence and pathogenicity of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) suggests that COVID-19 may be considered a perfect storm, caused by a nature's virtually perfect biological weapon. This conclusion is supported by an updated analysis of pathogenesis and clinical progression of this infectious disease. Read More

The diagnostic utility of pleural markers for tuberculosis pleural effusion.

Ann Transl Med 2020 May;8(9):607

Department of Laboratory Medicine, Naval Special Medical Center, The Naval Military Medical University, Shanghai 200433, China.

Tuberculosis pleural effusion (TPE) is common in clinical practice, and its diagnosis remains a challenge for clinicians. Ziehl-Neelsen staining, PE Mycobacterium tuberculosis culture, and biopsy are the gold standards for TPE diagnosis; however, they are time-consuming, invasive, observer-dependent, and insensitive. PE markers represent a rapid, low-cost, and non-invasive objective diagnostic tool for TPE. Read More

Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry combined with UF-5000i urine flow cytometry to directly identify pathogens in clinical urine specimens within 1 hour.

Ann Transl Med 2020 May;8(9):602

Medical Technology School of Xuzhou Medical University, Xuzhou 221004, China.

Background: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common hospital-associated infectious. The traditional laboratory diagnosis method for UTI requires at least 24 hours, and it cannot provide the etiology basis for the clinic in time. The aim of our study is to develop a new method for pathogenic diagnosis of UTI by combining matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) and UF-5000i from urine samples directly within 1 hour.

Ann Transl Med 2020 May;8(9):601

Department of Laboratory Medicine, The Affiliated Hospital of Inner Mongolia Medical University, Hohhot 010050, China.

Background: Whether routine urinary analysis has a net benefit for urinary tract infection (UTI) screening is unclear.

Methods: Using the laboratory information system (LIS), we retrospectively extracted the data of urine culture and routine analysis between January 2017 and April 2017. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve, logistic regression model, net reclassification improvement (NRI) and integrated discrimination improvement (IDI) were used to estimate the screening performance of routine urinary analysis.

Identifying optimal candidates of transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) sorafenib in patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma.

Ann Transl Med 2020 May;8(9):587

Department of Gastroenterology, Tangdu Hospital, Fourth Military Medical University, Xi'an 710038, China.

Background: Sorafenib has been recommended as the first-line treatment and shown to prolong median overall survival (OS) of patients with advanced unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Recently, a growing amount of research has supported the application of transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) in patients with advanced-stage HCC. The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of TACE and sorafenib and identify the prognostic factors related to OS for Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) stage C patients with PS 1 but without vascular invasion or extrahepatic spread.

Identifying optimal candidates for liver resection or transarterial chemoembolisation in patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma.

Ann Transl Med 2020 May;8(9):586

Department of Gastroenterology, Tangdu Hospital, Fourth Military Medical University, Xi'an 710038, China.

Background: Recommended as the first-line treatment for advanced unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), sorafenib has been shown to prolong median overall survival (OS) for patients.

Comparison of radiofrequency ablation combined with sorafenib or sorafenib alone in patients with ECOG performance score 1: identifying optimal candidates.

Ann Transl Med 2020 May;8(9):583

Department of Surgery, Tangdu Hospital, Fourth Military Medical University, Xi'an 710038, China.

Background: Sorafenib has been recommended as the first-line treatment and shown to prolong the median overall survival (OS) of patients with advanced unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Recently, a growing number of earlier studies showed the application of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) plus sorafenib in patients diagnosed at the advanced-stage HCC. This study aimed to compare the outcomes of RFA plus sorafenib versus sorafenib alone and identify prognostic factors related to OS for BCLC stage C patients with PS 1 but without vascular invasion or extrahepatic spread.

Ann Transl Med 2020 May;8(10):636

Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne, Australia.

Background: Radiotherapy (RT) alone or in combination with androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) is most common non-operative treatments for localised prostate cancer (PC). Some circulatory cytokines are believed to play an important role in RT resistance and lead to tumour progression, invasion, and angiogenesis. The aim of this study is to assess the influence of ADT and RT on the expression of circulatory cytokines levels in plasma at different time points. Read More

Ann Transl Med 2020 May;8(10):629

The First School of Clinical Medicine, Lanzhou University, Lanzhou 730000, China.

Background: COVID-19, a disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, has now spread to most countries and regions of the world. As patients potentially infected by SARS-CoV-2 need to visit hospitals, the incidence of nosocomial infection can be expected to be high. Therefore, a comprehensive and objective understanding of nosocomial infection is needed to guide the prevention and control of the epidemic. Read More

Public health education for parents during the outbreak of COVID-19: a rapid review.

Ann Transl Med 2020 May;8(10):628

Department of Respiratory Medicine, Children's Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing 400014, China.

Background: It is well-known that public health education plays a crucial role in the prevention and control of emerging infectious diseases, but how health providers should advise families and parents to obtain health education information is a challenging question. With coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) spreading around the world, this rapid review aims to answer that question and thus to promote evidence-based decision making in health education policy and practice.

Methods: We systematically searched the literature on health education during COVID-19, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and middle east respiratory syndrome (MERS) epidemics in Medline (via PubMed), Cochrane Library, EMBASE, Web of Science, China Biology Medicine disc (CBM), China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), and Wanfang Data from their inception until March 31, 2020.

Superior Antitumor Efficacy of IFN-α2b-Incorporated Photo-Cross-Linked Hydrogels Combined with T Cell Transfer and Low-Dose Irradiation Against Gastric Cancer.

Introduction: The exhaustion and poor homing of activated lymphocytes are critical obstacles in adoptive cell immunotherapy for solid tumors. In order to effectively deliver immune cells into tumors, we encapsulated interferon-α2b (IFN-α2b) into macroporous hydrogels as an enhancement factor and utilized low-dose irradiation (LDI) as a tumoral attractor of T cells.

Methods: Hydroxypropyl cellulose hydrogels were prepared by irradiation techniques, and the cross-sectional microstructure was characterized by scanning electron microscopy. Read More
