Preventive effects of pneumococcal and influenza vaccines on community-acquired pneumonia in older individuals in Japan: a case-control study.

Hum Vaccin Immunother 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

n Department of Pulmonary Medicine , Kameda Medical Center , Chiba , Japan.

At present, there are few reports that have clarified the effectiveness of 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPSV23) against all-cause pneumonia or pneumococcal pneumonia in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in older individuals in Japan. We conducted a hospital-based matched case-control study to investigate separately the preventive effects of PPSV23 and trivalent influenza vaccine (TIV) on all-cause CAP and pneumococcal CAP in older individuals in Japan. Cases were individuals aged 65 years or older who were newly diagnosed with CAP from October 2010 to September 2014. Read More

Starting ketamine for neuroprotection earlier than its current use as an anesthetic/antiepileptic drug late in refractory status epilepticus.

Epilepsia 2019 Feb 19. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Neurology Department, VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System, Sepulveda Ambulatory Care Center and Nursing Home, North Hills, California.

Ketamine is currently being used as an anesthetic/antiepileptic drug in refractory status epilepticus. To validate its use, 2 clinical trials are recruiting patients. However, preclinical studies of its use in chemically induced status epilepticus in rodents have shown that it is remarkably neuroprotective, through N-methyl-d-aspartate-receptor blockade, even when given after the onset of status epilepticus.

The disciplining of self-help: Doing self-help the Norwegian way.

Soc Sci Med 2019 Feb 4;225:34-41. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Department of Sociology and Policy, Aston University, Birmingham, UK.

We explore how Norwegian self-help groups are defined and managed to create a particular form of health system governmentality. Self-help groups are typically framed as therapeutic communities where participants define the agenda creating a space where open and equal interaction can produce individual learning and personal growth. In Norway, however, self-help groups are managed in a way that integrates them in to the health system but insulates them from clinical medicine; an approach that disciplines participants to act in a particular way in relation to the health system.
