Utility of Blood Cultures in Pneumonia.

Am J Med 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Department of Internal Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX; Department of Clinical Sciences, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX; Division of Hospital Medicine, Chan Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, University of California, San Francisco. Electronic address: https://twitter.com/anilmakam.

Introduction: Blood cultures are of limited utility in non-severe community-acquired pneumonia, though routinely recommended for severe community-acquired pneumonia or healthcare-associated pneumonia, due to perceived greater bacteremia risk, particularly with multidrug resistant organisms. The utility of this practice is unknown.

Methods: In this observational cohort study, we abstracted data from medical records for consecutive hospitalizations for pneumonia by adults to an academic medical center from 2014 to 2015. Read More

Department of Preventive Medicine and Public Health, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and Idipaz. Madrid, Spain; CIBER of Epidemiology and Public Health (CIBERESP). Madrid, Spain; IMDEA Food Institute, CEI UAM+CSIC. Madrid, Spain. Electronic address:

Background: Whether adopting a better diet in late life influences the aging process is still uncertain. Thus, we examined the association between changes in diet quality and unhealthy aging.

Methods: Data came from 2042 individuals aged ≥60years recruited in the Seniors-ENRICA cohort in 2008-2010 (wave 0) and followed-up in 2012 (wave 1) and 2015 (wave 2). Read More

Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular safety of testosterone replacement therapy among aging men with low testosterone levels: a cohort study.

Am J Med 2019 Apr 3. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Centre for Clinical Epidemiology, Lady Davis Institute for Medical Research, Jewish General Hospital, Montreal, Québec, Canada; Department of Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Occupational Health, McGill University, Montreal, Québec, Canada; Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery, McGill University, Montreal, Québec, Canada. Electronic address:

Purpose: We assessed the risk of ischemic stroke, transient ischemic attack, and myocardial infarction associated with testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) among aging men with low testosterone levels.

Methods: Using the UK Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD), we formed a cohort of men aged 45years or older with low testosterone levels and no evidence of hypogonadotropic or testicular disease, between 1995 and 2017. Hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) of a composite of ischemic stroke/transient ischemic attack and myocardial infarction were estimated using time-dependent Cox proportional hazards models, comparing current use of TRT with nonuse.

Reasons for Differences in the Incidence of Venous Thromboembolism in Black Versus White Americans.

Am J Med 2019 Apr 3. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

Department of Medicine, University of Vermont, Colchester Research Facility, 360 South Park Dr., 206D, Colchester, VT 05446, USA; Department of Pathology, University of Vermont, 111 Colchester Avenue, Main Campus, Main Pavilion, Level 2, Burlington, VT 05401, USA. Electronic address:

Introduction: Venous thromboembolism incidence rates are 30-100% higher in American blacks than whites. We examined (a) the degree to which differences in the frequencies of socioeconomic, lifestyle, and medical risk factors, and genetic variants explain the excess venous thromboembolism risk in blacks and (b) whether some risk factors are more strongly associated with venous thromboembolism in blacks compared with whites.

Methods: We measured venous thromboembolism risk factors in black or white participants of the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities study in 1987-89 and followed them prospectively through 2015 for venous thromboembolism incidence. Read More

Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura – beyond Empiricism and Plasma Exchange.

Authors:
Han-Mou Tsai

Am J Med 2019 Mar 27. Epub 2019 Mar 27.

Division of Hematology/Oncology, State University of New York Downstate Medical Center, 450 Clarkson Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11203. Electronic address:

For many years after its first description in 1924 thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura was an intriguing puzzle for clinicians and researchers, not only for its unique pathology, perplexing changes in von Willebrand factor multimers and high rate of rapid fatality but also for its dramatic response to plasma infusion or exchange. The discovery of ADAMTS13 (a disintegrin and metalloprotease with thrombospondin type 1 repeat member 13) and its deficiency in thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, due to inhibitory autoantibodies or genetic mutations, provides a mechanistic scheme for understanding its pathogenesis. This new knowledge quickly led to the use of rituximab to promote its remission and prevent recurrence. Read More

Laboratory of Computer Science, Massachusetts General Hospital, 50 Staniford Street, Suite 750, Boston, MA 02114.

Unlike most western democracies, health insurance in the United States is provided by a haphazard mix of employer-based plans, Medicare for those over 65 or on social security disability or chronic renal failure, Medicaid under varying state-dependent rules for some low-income recipients and no insurance for tens of millions. Administrative costs, which include both the direct costs of the insurers and the indirect costs imposed on physicians and hospitals, make up nearly 25% of our bloated national health care expenditures. This high cost adds no proven value to health care outcomes. Read More
