Surgical outcomes of unilateral lateral rectus recession versus recess-resect in children with convergence insufficiency type intermittent exotropia.

Sci Rep 2022 May 21;12(1):8591. Epub 2022 May 21.

Department of Ophthalmology, Kangnam Sacred Heart Hospital, Hallym University College of Medicine, 665 Shiheongdae-ro, Seoul, 07442, South Korea.

To determine the efficacy of unilateral lateral rectus recession (ULR) for convergence insufficiency-type intermittent exotropia (CI-type IXT), we compared surgical outcomes following ULR and recess‒resect (RR) procedures for CI-type IXT. In this retrospective study, medical records of 57 children who underwent ULR (n = 30) or RR (n = 27) for CI-type IXT of less than 25 PD at distance with a postoperative follow-up of 6 months or more were reviewed. Surgical success was defined as an alignment between 10 PD exodeviation and 5 PD esodeviation at distance and near fixation. Read More

Univ. Lille, Inserm, Institut Pasteur de Lille, U1167 - Risk factors and molecular determinants of aging-related diseases, F-59000 Lille, France. Electronic address:

Unsymmetrically disubstituted metallocene derivatives, characterized as the first sandwich structure, have found interest in asymmetrical synthesis and in medicinal chemistry as well. Besides, they present a particular case of chirality. Twenty original and six commercially available molecules presenting either i) a planar chirality or ii) an asymmetrical carbon containing group or iii) being symmetrically substituted were analyzed in supercritical fluid chromatography on eleven polysaccharide-based chiral stationary phases with carbon dioxide containing 30% of methanol or 2-propanol as a co-solvent mobile phase.

Retrospective comparison of motor and somatosensory MEG mapping-Considerations for better clinical applications.

Neuroimage Clin 2022 May 12;35:103045. Epub 2022 May 12.

Institute for Human Neuroscience, Boys Town National Research Hospital, Omaha, NE, USA; College of Medicine, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE, USA; Department of Pharmacology & Neuroscience, Creighton University, Omaha, NE, USA.

While magnetoencephalography (MEG) has proven to be a valuable and reliable tool for presurgical functional mapping of eloquent cortices for at least two decades, widespread use of this technique by clinicians has remained elusive. This modest application may be attributable, at least in part, to misunderstandings regarding the success rate of such mapping procedures, as well as the primary sources contributing to mapping failures. To address this, we conducted a retrospective comparison of sensorimotor functional mapping success rates in 141 patients with epilepsy and 75 tumor patients from the Center for MEG in Omaha, NE.

Prog Mol Biol Transl Sci 2022 22;189(1):259-326. Epub 2022 Apr 22.

The First Affiliated Hospital of Shantou University, Shantou University Medical College, Shantou, China; Department of Urology, Shenzhen Institute of Translational Medicine, Shenzhen Second People's Hospital, The First Affiliated Hospital of Shenzhen University, Shenzhen, China; Guangdong Key Laboratory of Systems Biology and Synthetic Biology for Urogenital Tumors, Shenzhen, China; International Cancer Center of Shenzhen University, Shenzhen, China; Shenzhen Institute of Synthetic Biology, Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shenzhen, China. Electronic address:

Cancer represents a leading cause of death, despite the rapid progress of cancer research, leading to urgent need for accurate preclinical model to further study of tumor mechanism and accelerate translational applications. Cancer cell lines cannot fully recapitulate tumors of different patients due to the lack of tumor complexity and specification, while the high technical difficulty, long time, and substantial cost of patient-derived xenograft model makes it unable to be used extensively for all types of tumors and large-scale drug screening. Patient-derived organoids can be established rapidly with a high success rate from many tumors, and precisely replicate the key histopathological, genetic, and phenotypic features, as well as therapeutic response of patient tumor.

A Power-Efficient Brain-Machine Interface System with a Sub-mW Feature Extraction and Decoding ASIC Demonstrated in Nonhuman Primates.

IEEE Trans Biomed Circuits Syst 2022 May 20;PP. Epub 2022 May 20.

Intracortical brain-machine interfaces have shown promise for restoring function to people with paralysis, but their translation to portable and implantable devices is hindered by their high power consumption. Recent devices have drastically reduced power consumption compared to standard experimental brain-machine interfaces, but still require wired or wireless connections to computing hardware for feature extraction and inference. Here, we introduce a Neural Recording And Decoding (NeuRAD) application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) in 180 nm CMOS that can extract neural spiking features and predict two-dimensional behaviors in real-time.

Enhancing Radioiodine Incorporation Into Radio Iodine Refractory Thyroid Cancer With MAPK Inhibition (ERRITI): A Single-Center Prospective Two-Arm Study.

Clin Cancer Res 2022 May 20. Epub 2022 May 20.

University Hospital Essen, West German Cancer Center, Essen, Germany.

Purpose: Restoration of iodine incorporation (redifferentiation) by mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) inhibition was achieved in previously radioiodine-refractory, unresectable thyroid carcinoma (RR-TC). However, results were unsatisfactory in BRAFV600E-mutant RR-TC. Here we assess safety and efficacy of redifferentiation therapy through genotype-guided MAPK-modulation in patients with BRAFV600E-mutant (BRAF-MUT) or wildtype (BRAF-WT) RR-TC. Read More

Analysis of serological treatment response to doxycycline versus benzathine penicillin in syphilis infections, a retrospective single-centre study.

Dermatol Ther 2022 May 20:e15586. Epub 2022 May 20.

Dermatology Unit, IRCCS of Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria di Bologna, via Massarenti 9, Bologna, Italy.

Introduction: Doxycilicine is the second-line treatment of choice for infectious syphilis when treatment with penicillin G is not feasible. To date, difficulties in the penicillin supply chain make it necessary to evaluate and resort to antibiotic therapies which are currently considered a second-line choice. Moreover, systematic studies comparing the two treatments in affected patients are still few, and many do not consider late and indeterminate latent infections. Read More

Rapid Superficial Vein Assessment (RaSuVA): A pre-procedural systematic evaluation of superficial veins to optimize venous catheterization in neonates.

J Vasc Access 2022 May 20:11297298221098481. Epub 2022 May 20.

Department of Surgery, Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A. Gemelli IRCCS, Rome, Italy.

Background: Placement of peripheral intra-venous cannulas and epicutaneo-caval catheters is routinely performed in in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and both devices require visible superficial veins easy to cannulate. NICU patients are intrinsically characterized by poor and fragile vein asset, so that puncture and cannulation of superficial veins is often a challenge even for trained clinicians and cannulation frequently results in a stressful, painful, difficult procedure.

Methods And Results: Rapid Superficial Vein Assessment is meant to offer a systematic pre-procedural evaluation of all superficial veins of the newborn, so to allow a rational choice of the best insertion site, tailored on the single patient, and optimized for the specific type of venous access device.
