Role of hippocampal orexin receptors in antinociception elicited by chemical stimulation of the lateral hypothalamus in the tail-flick test.

Behav Brain Res 2021 Jul 27;414:113492. Epub 2021 Jul 27.

Neuroscience Research Center, School of Medicine, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran. Electronic address:

The lateral hypothalamus (LH) orexinergic neurons project to numerous brain regions implicated in pain perception, including the CA1 part of the hippocampal formation. Moreover, the roles of orexin receptors (OXRs) in the CA1 in anti-analgesic consequences of the LH chemical stimulation by carbachol, muscarinic receptor agonist, in acute pain have not been clarified. The current research showed OXRs antagonist administration's effect in the CA1 on analgesia elicited by the LH chemical stimulation in a tail-flick test as an acute model of pain. Read More

Improved outcome in AML relapse after allogeneic transplant with high-intensity chemotherapy followed by 2nd allogeneic stem cell transplant or donor lymphocyte infusion.

Ann Hematol 2021 Jul 29. Epub 2021 Jul 29.

Department of Medicine, Penn State Cancer Institute, 500 University Dr., Hershey, PA, 17033, USA.

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) relapse after allogeneic stem cell transplant (alloSCT) remains a major therapeutic challenge. While patients with longer remission after initial alloSCT are recommended to receive cell therapy (CT) such as 2alloSCT or donor lymphocyte infusion (DLI), survival for patients who relapse within 6 months of alloSCT has been dismal. We evaluated the outcomes of AML relapse after alloSCT to assess the impact of different treatments on long-term survival. Read More

Post-Operative Sleep Endoscopy with Target-Controlled Infusion After Palatopharyngoplasty for Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Anatomical and Polysomnographic Outcomes.

Nat Sci Sleep 2021 20;13:1181-1193. Epub 2021 Jul 20.

Department of Otolaryngology, Shin Kong Wu Ho-Su Memorial Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan.

Introduction: The findings of drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) are not always correlated with the outcome of upper airway surgery for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and whether multilevel surgery is truly required in treating multilevel obstruction identified in preoperative DISE remains an issue. We attempted to compare DISE findings before and after palatopharyngoplasty in patients with OSA because changes in DISE may be beneficial to better understand polysomnographic and anatomical outcomes.

Methods: This was a prospective cohort study for 34 patients with moderate to severe OSA who underwent palatopharyngoplasty at a tertiary care center from 2016 to 2018. Read More

Impaired cerebrospinal fluid transport due to idiopathic subdural hematoma in pig: an unusual case.

BMC Vet Res 2021 Jul 20;17(1):250. Epub 2021 Jul 20.

Department of Experimental Medical Science, Lund University, Sölvegatan 17, BMC A1304, 223 62, Lund, SE, Sweden.

Background: We report the effects of the presentation of an idiopathic subdural hematoma (SDH) in an adult domestic pig on the glymphatic system, a brain-wide solute clearance system. This accidental finding is based on our recently published study that described this system for the first time in large mammals. Our current results define the need to investigate cerebrovascular pathologies that could compromise glymphatic function in gyrencephalic animal models as a tool to bridge rodent and human glymphatic studies.

Background: Patients with underlying medical conditions are at increased risk for severe coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19). Whereas vaccine-derived immunity develops over time, neutralizing monoclonal-antibody treatment provides immediate, passive immunity and may limit disease progression and complications.

Methods: In this phase 3 trial, we randomly assigned, in a 1:1 ratio, a cohort of ambulatory patients with mild or moderate Covid-19 who were at high risk for progression to severe disease to receive a single intravenous infusion of either a neutralizing monoclonal-antibody combination agent (2800 mg of bamlanivimab and 2800 mg of etesevimab, administered together) or placebo within 3 days after a laboratory diagnosis of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection.

Division of Transplant Surgery, Department of Pediatrics, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Background: Early hepatic artery thrombosis (HAT) after liver transplantation is a serious complication that frequently results in graft loss and the need for retransplantation. Although studies have reported on various operative and endovascular treatment approaches, pharmacologic strategies for the prevention or management of HAT are not well defined. Patients with blood clotting disorders, those with a contraindication to heparin, and those who have previously developed HAT represent unique challenges in management. Read More
