Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, Krebs Institute for Biomolecular Research, The University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK.

In infections by apicomplexan parasites including Plasmodium, Toxoplasma gondii, and Eimeria, host interactions are mediated by proteins including families of membrane-anchored cysteine-rich surface antigens (SAGs) and SAG-related sequences (SRS). Eimeria tenella causes caecal coccidiosis in chickens and has a SAG family with over 80 members making up 1% of the proteome. We have solved the structure of a representative E. Read More

Tobacco smoke exposure limits the therapeutic benefit of tezacaftor/ivacaftor in pediatric patients with cystic fibrosis.

J Cyst Fibros 2020 Oct 3. Epub 2020 Oct 3.

University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL, USA. Electronic address:

J Spinal Cord Med 2020 May 7:1-4. Epub 2020 May 7.

Department of Radiology, Canakkale State Hospital, Canakkale, Turkey.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a well-known complication of spinal cord injury (SCI). Low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) may be used in SCI patients who develop DVT, but can lead to subcutaneous bleeding. If subcutaneous bleeding occurs, then lymphedema, cellulitis, muscle or tendon tearing, or baker's cyst rupture should be considered in the differential diagnosis. Read More

A potential risk factor of total knee arthroplasty: an infected Baker's cyst - a case report.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2020 Feb 29;21(1):137. Epub 2020 Feb 29.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Soonchunhyang University Hospital Gumi, 179, 1gongdan-ro, Gumi, Gyeongsangbuk-do, 39371, Korea.

Background: In adults, Baker's cyst development is attributable principally to secondary alterations after degenerative changes. The latter changes often accompany osteoarthritis, and we frequently encounter patients with Baker's cysts seeking total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Baker's cysts are not usually subject to extensive preoperative evaluation because the cysts often disappear naturally after surgery, unaccompanied by any adverse symptoms. Read More
