Aqueous shunts with mitomycin C versus aqueous shunts alone for glaucoma.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 Apr 19;4:CD011875. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

Ophthalmology, Singapore National Eye Centre, Singapore, Singapore.

Background: Glaucoma affects more than 70 million people worldwide, with about 10% being bilaterally blind, making it the leading cause of irreversible blindness globally. In patients with advanced glaucoma or those who have failed medical treatment without achieving adequate intraocular pressure (IOP) control, trabeculectomy (glaucoma filtration surgery where an ostium is created into the anterior chamber from underneath a partial thickness scleral flap to allow for aqueous flow out of the anterior chamber intointo the subconjunctival space forming a filtering bleb) and aqueous shunt surgery for more complex and refractory cases remain the mainstay therapies. Proliferation of fibrous tissue around an implanted aqueous shunt may block the diffusion of aqueous humour. Read More

Actions developed by the Brazilian Physiological Society to promote women's participation in science.

Adv Physiol Educ 2019 Jun;43(2):199-206

Instituto do Coração, University of São Paulo , São Paulo , Brazil.

Here we described two activities related to Women in Science: one main conference and one symposium, both developed during the Annual Congress of the Brazilian Physiological Society, which were held within the XXXIII Annual Meeting of the Federation of Brazilian Experimental Biology Societies, from September 3-6, 2018, in Campos do Jordão (SP/Brazil). This conference and the symposium were among the most popular activities of the congress. This is important because the activities addressed important issues, including the fact that only 29% of the worlds' researchers are women, and women have difficulty progressing in a scientific career.

Eradication therapy for Burkholderia cepacia complex in people with cystic fibrosis.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 Apr 18;4:CD009876. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

NHS Lothian, Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, 51 Little France Crescent, Edinburgh, UK, EH16 4SA.

Background: Chronic infection with Burkholderia cepacia complex species remains a significant problem for clinicians treating people with cystic fibrosis. Colonisation with Burkholderia cepacia complex species is linked to a more rapid decline in lung function and increases morbidity and mortality. There remain no objective guidelines for strategies to eradicate Burkholderia cepacia complex in cystic fibrosis lung disease, as these are inherently resistant to the majority of antibiotics and there has been very little research in this area.

Development of the ACTIVE framework to describe stakeholder involvement in systematic reviews.

J Health Serv Res Policy 2019 Apr 18:1355819619841647. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

11 Consumer Engagement Officer, Cochrane Consumer Network, UK.

Objectives: Involvement of patients, health professionals, and the wider public ('stakeholders') is seen to be beneficial to the quality, relevance and impact of research and may enhance the usefulness and uptake of systematic reviews. However, there is a lack of evidence and resources to guide researchers in how to actively involve stakeholders in systematic reviews. In this paper, we report the development of the ACTIVE framework to describe how stakeholders are involved in systematic reviews. Read More

Pathway to the Papanicolaou smear: The development of cervical cytology in twentieth-century America and implications in the present day.

Gynecol Oncol 2019 Apr 14. Epub 2019 Apr 14.

Division of Gynecologic Oncology, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA, United States of America.

George Papanicolaou, a Greek immigrant and cytopathologist, was responsible for what is now colloquially known as the "Pap smear"-undoubtedly one of the greatest advances in medicine and public health of the last century. However, his landmark research on the development of cervical cytology for the detection of precancerous lesions of the cervix ("New Cancer Diagnosis," 1928) made a rather inauspicious debut in an unlikely venue: John Harvey Kellogg's Third Race Betterment Conference-a meeting devoted to the furtherance of the concept and implementation of eugenics. Herein, we discuss the stark juxtaposition of Papanicolaou's landmark discovery amid the pseudoscience of the third Race Betterment Conference. Read More

Virologic failure and HIV drug resistance on simplified, dolutegravir-based maintenance therapy: Systematic review and meta-analysis.

F1000Res 2018 30;7:1359. Epub 2018 Aug 30.

Division of Infectious Diseases, Geneva University Hospital, Geneva, 1205, Switzerland.

Dolutegravir-containing maintenance therapy is a promising simplification strategy for virologically suppressed HIV-infected individuals. However, most of the available data to inform this strategy come from small, uncontrolled studies. We estimated the proportion of HIV-infected patients experiencing virological failure (VF) and developing drug resistance on dolutegravir (DTG)-based maintenance therapy. Read More

The Many Faces of EpigeneticsOxford, December 2017.

Epigenetics 2019 Apr 17:1-9. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

c Université Paris-Diderot/IHPST, CNRS & Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, UMR 8590 , Paris , France.

The conference 'The Many Faces of Epigenetics: Multidisciplinary Perspectives "over" Genetics' was held in Oxford (6-8 December 2017) and offered a valuable window into the domain of Epigenetics and its promises. The workshop revealed that, among a wealth of discourses about Epigenetics, it is not so easy to decipher which discourses are to be trusted. Because Epigenetics is a rather old notion that has generated many debates and promises, defining precisely what has changed and where we are currently is a challenge in itself. Read More

Patient safety culture in a university hospital emergency department in Switzerland - a survey study.

GMS J Med Educ 2019 15;36(2):Doc14. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Inselspital Bern, Universitäres Notfallzentrum, Bern, Switzerland.

Poor safety culture, bad teamwork, non-functional inter-departmental working relationships and increased cognitive demands are associated with higher amounts of adverse events in hospitals. To improve patient safety, one of the first steps is to assess safety culture among health care providers in an institution. Considering the sparsity of studies addressing patient safety culture in Europe and Switzerland, the aim of the present study was to assess patient safety culture in the emergency department of a University Hospital in Switzerland.

Kidney Int 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia. Electronic address:

Globally, the number of patients undergoing maintenance dialysis is increasing, yet throughout the world there is significant variability in the practice of initiating dialysis. Factors such as availability of resources, reasons for starting dialysis, timing of dialysis initiation, patient education and preparedness, dialysis modality and access, as well as varied "country-specific" factors significantly affect patient experiences and outcomes. As the burden of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) has increased globally, there has also been a growing recognition of the importance of patient involvement in determining the goals of care and decisions regarding treatment.

Zoonoses related to leisure activities. Many zoonoses can be contracted by humans during recreational activities. In the context of a walk, some of them, such as Lyme disease, are transmissible by biological vectors, particularly ticks, or by aerosol (Q fever, hantavirose), whereas others can be contracted in case of aquatic activities (leptospirosis), hunting (tularaemia), and visits to pet farms or fairs (especially the hemolytic uremic syndrome).

Division of Cardiology, Pauley Heart Center, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA.

The 2019 European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) Scientific Meetings released several Late Breaking Clinical Trials that define important results for the fields of catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) and ventricular tachycardia (VT). Three independent multicenter randomized controlled trials have confirmed that AF ablation with point-by-point radiofrequency energy or cryoballoon technology are both equally and highly effective, and significantly superior to antiarrhythmic drug therapy in reducing recurrent AF episodes and preventing arrhythmia-related hospitalizations. Edoxaban has been shown a viable option for periprocedural oral anticoagulation in patients undergoing catheter ablation of AF in a large multicenter randomized study, with outcomes similar to uninterrupted warfarin.

A clinical study for the evaluation of pharmacokinetic interaction between daclatasvir and fluoxetine.

J Pharm Biomed Anal 2019 Apr 5;171:104-110. Epub 2019 Apr 5.

Department of Pharmaceutical Analytical Chemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy, Al-Azhar University, Assiut Branch, Assiut 71526, Egypt; Current address: Schulich School of Engineering, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB T2N 4V8, Canada. Electronic address:

A simple and sensitive chromatographic method has been developed for the quantitative analysis of an antiviral agent, daclatasvir (DCV), that commonly prescribed for the treatment of hepatitis C viral (HCV) infection. The method was applied to detect DCV in human plasma and real blood samples collected from patients diagnosed with HCV and treated with DCV. The analysis strategy was based on recording the native fluorescence of DCV in plasma, after pre-column treatment to precipitate the plasma proteins using a readily applicable protocol. Read More

Aid Effectiveness in the Sustainable Development Goals Era Comment on "It's About the Idea Hitting the Bull's Eye": How Aid Effectiveness Can Catalyse the Scale-up of Health Innovations".

Int J Health Policy Manag 2018 Dec 25;8(3):184-186. Epub 2018 Dec 25.

Center for Policy Impact in Global Health, Duke Global Health Institute, Durham, NC, USA.

Over just a six-year period from 2005-2011, five aid effectiveness initiatives were launched: the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness (2005), the International Health Partnership plus (2007), the Accra Agenda for Action (2008), the Busan Partnership for Effective Cooperation (2011), and the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (GPEDC) (2011). More recently, in 2015, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (AAAA) was signed at the third international conference on financing for development and the Universal Health Coverage (UHC) 2030 Global Compact was signed in 2017. Both documents espouse principles of aid effectiveness and would most likely guide financing decisions in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) era. Read More

Primary Care Provider Perceptions of Pharmacist Services in an Urban, Safety Net Health System.

J Pharm Pract 2019 Apr 12:897190019838422. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

2 Department of Clinical Pharmacy, School of Pharmacy, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, USA.

While pharmacists have provided services in a multidisciplinary, primary care setting for decades, few publications have yet to evaluate providers' impressions of- these services. An anonymous 14-item survey distributed to nonresident primary care providers aimed to identify clinical pharmacist services that are most and least helpful to primary care providers, identify barriers to pharmacy services, and develop recommendations to improve pharmacy services in primary care. The most important pharmacist contribution identified by providers is medication management, whereas the least important contributions are case conference, panel management, quality improvement, and transition of care.
