A Methodological Appraisal of the HEART Score and Its Variants.

Ann Emerg Med 2021 Apr 28. Epub 2021 Apr 28.

Department of Emergency Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA.

We performed a methodological appraisal of the history, electrocardiogram, age, risk factors, and troponin (HEART) score and its variants in the context of Annals of Emergency Medicine's methodological standards for clinical decision rules. We note that this chest pain risk stratification tool was not formally derived, omits sex and other known predictors, has weak interrater reliability, and its 0, 1, and 2 score weightings do not align with their known predictivities. Its summary performance (pooled sensitivities of 96% to 97% with lower confidence interval bounds of 93% to 94%) is below that which emergency physicians state a willingness to accept, below the 98% sensitivity exhibited by baseline practice without the score, and below the 1% to 2% acceptable miss threshold specified by the American College of Emergency Physicians chest pain policy.

Parkinson's disease.

Lancet 2021 Apr 9. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

Institute of Neurogenetics and Department of Neurology, University of Lübeck and University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein, Lübeck, Germany.

Parkinson's disease is a recognisable clinical syndrome with a range of causes and clinical presentations. Parkinson's disease represents a fast-growing neurodegenerative condition; the rising prevalence worldwide resembles the many characteristics typically observed during a pandemic, except for an infectious cause. In most populations, 3-5% of Parkinson's disease is explained by genetic causes linked to known Parkinson's disease genes, thus representing monogenic Parkinson's disease, whereas 90 genetic risk variants collectively explain 16-36% of the heritable risk of non-monogenic Parkinson's disease.

Non-small cell lung cancer with MET exon 14 skipping alteration responding to immunotherapy: a case report.

Ann Transl Med 2021 Mar;9(5):424

Department of Thoracic Surgery/Oncology, the First Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University, State Key Laboratory and National Clinical Research Center for Respiratory Disease, Guangzhou, China.

Immunotherapy has been proved to be a promising candidate for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Despite MET mutations are regarded as an independent factor of programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) high expression, the efficacy of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) across NSCLC harboring Mesenchymal-epithelial transition factor exon 14 skipping alteration (METex14) is still uncleared. Moreover, when the resistance of PD-1 antibody occurs, the questions of how to interpret the resistance and how to overcome the resistance are worth exploring. Read More

Immuno-oncology: a narrative review of gastrointestinal and hepatic toxicities.

Ann Transl Med 2021 Mar;9(5):423

Medical School, University of Ioannina, Ioannina, Greece.

Vaccines, cytokines, and adoptive cellular therapies (ACT) represent immuno-therapeutic modalities with great development potential, and they are currently approved for the treatment of a limited number of advanced malignancies. The most up-to-date knowledge on the regulation of the anti-cancer immune response has recently led to the development and approval of inhibitors of immune checkpoints, which have produced unprecedented clinical activity in several hard to treat solid malignancies. However, severe adverse events (AEs) represent a limitation to the use of these drugs. Read More

Nomogram for predicting the survival rate of primary pulmonary mucoepidermoid carcinoma patients: a retrospective study based on SEER database.

Ann Transl Med 2021 Mar;9(5):407

Department of Thoracic Surgery and Oncology, the First Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University, State Key Laboratory of Respiratory Disease, National Clinical Research Center for Respiratory Disease, Guangzhou Institute of Respiratory Health, Guangzhou, China.

Background: Primary pulmonary mucoepidermoid carcinoma (PMEC) is a rare malignant tumor, and the clinical manifestations lack specificity. The study evaluates the prognostic factors and constructs a practicable nomogram to estimate the individualized survival status for PMEC patients.

Methods: Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database was used to selected eligible patients between 1975 and 2016. Read More

Umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells enhance the therapeutic effect of imipenem by regulating myeloid-derived suppressor cells in septic mice.

Ann Transl Med 2021 Mar;9(5):404

School of Medicine, Southeast University, Nanjing, China.

Background: Umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (UC-MSCs), which possess potent immunomodulatory effects and low immunogenicity, are considered to be a promising stem cell-based therapy for sepsis. In the current study, we aimed to investigate whether the combined use of UC-MSCs and imipenem has a better effect than imipenem alone in treating ()-induced sepsis and to explore the mechanism by which UC-MSCs exert their therapeutic effect in septic mice.

Methods: We randomly divided mice into five groups with 10 mice in each group: the normal control group (control group), the sepsis group (vehicle group), the MSCs treatment group (MSCs group), the imipenem treatment group (imipenem group), and the imipenem plus MSCs treatment group (imipenem + MSCs group).

Non-intubated video-assisted thoracic surgery for subxiphoid anterior mediastinal tumor resection.

Ann Transl Med 2021 Mar;9(5):403

Department of Thoracic Surgery and Oncology, the First Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University, State Key Laboratory of Respiratory Disease, National Clinical Research Center for Respiratory Disease, Guangzhou Institute of Respiratory Health, Guangzhou, China.

Background: Subxiphoid approach for mediastinal tumor resection was reported to provide a better view and less postoperative pain. Non-intubated video-assisted thoracic surgery (NI-VATS) without muscle relaxant would decrease the possibility of postoperative airway collapse for anterior mediastinal mass operation. Herein, we sought to describe the use of NI-VATS through subxiphoid approach for anterior mediastinal tumor resection. Read More
