There are many causes for recurrent pregnancy loss. Some of them are as simple as maternal and paternal age. As the age increases the risk for recurrent pregnancy loss increases. We find more risk in women more than 35 years and in men more than 40 years. The history of previous miscarriages increases the risk of pregnancy losses. The risk can be as low as 19% in case of one pregnancy loss and it can increase upto 40% in case of 3 pregnancy losses. Antiphospholipid is the most important treatable cause of recurrent pregnancy loss and it includes anticardiolipin antibodies, lupus anticoagulant antibeta 2 antibody 1 antibodies. It is typically characterised by 3 or more pregnancy losses that happens less than 10 weeks of pregnancy or 1 or more pregnancy losses after 10 weeks of pregnancy in a morphologically normal foetus or preterm births less than 34 weeks which are owing to placental disease. In some cases we have genetic factors playing a role especially because of parental chromosomal derangement when one parents has a balanced reciprocal robertsonian translocation or if there are embryonal chromosomal abnormalities. Some women have anatomic causes that is seen in normal 5 to 10% of cases especially if there are malformations of the uterus like the arcuate uterus or the septate uterus and this can cause pregnancy losses in almost 30 to 52% of the cases. Some women have cervical weakness called as cervical incompetence. Cervix is the lower portion of the uterus and it is supposed to hold the pregnancy delayed. If somebody has a weakness they have recurrent pregnancy losses typically seen in the second trimester of the pregnancy. Other causes could be polyps, subuterine myomas and intrauterine adhesions. There are also some endocrinal factors like uncontrolled diabetes uncontrolled thyroid imbalances or even polycystic ovaries which can contribute to RPL. Certain immunological factors have been researched nowadays. We find that these women tend to have more of T cytokine activity and deficiency and the blocking of the natural antibodies. With the current increase in the unhealthy eating habits obesity has also come up as an important cause. Infections as a cause of RPL are not so many. Initially people has testing for toxoplasma, rubella, cytomegalo virus, and the herpes. But currently they are very clear that this will not contribute to recurrent pregnancy losses and hence testing for this is not required. However bacterial vaginosis should be treated. There are some conditions like inherited thrombophelias like factor 5 latent mutation or protein C deficiency, protein S deficiency or a prothrombin gene mutation which can cause multiple microthrombi in the usual placental circulation.
I am Dr. Sam Money and this is the Society of Vascular Surgery briefing about hypercoagulability and arterial disease. Numerous studies have clearly defined hypercoagulable states that lead to increased rates of venous thrombotic disease. However, the positive role of many of these throbophilic states as a cause of arterial disease has yet to be clearly elucidated.

Medicine in the grip of Gene mutation You are sick and need a treatment in order to get well. You start with conventional medicine. Then continue to the so called alternative medicine. Following an acute condition you generally get well in spite of their treatment. Yet when disease becomes chronic, you become a chronic drug consumer. All! their therapies have side effects, which they call toxicities. Once you apply their therapy you have to chose between two unpleasant options. Avoid therapy and face disease alone, or rely on unhealthy toxicities. According to Medicine “The revolution in cancer research can be summed up in a single sentence: cancer is, in essence, a genetic disease” Cancer is caused by mutated genes. Tumor emerges during a chronic inflammation of the entire organ. Half or more of the somatic mutations in cancers of self-renewing tissues originate prior to tumor initiation. Dogma: Mutation is an error Alternative: Mutation codes for a protein that repairs damage caused by virus. Example: Gene mutation repairs virus induced damage. New insight in biology and genomics advanced virus into the limelight of medicine. From its very beginning, life evolved within a virus swarm. Virus is a dominant factor in the evolution of life on earth. Virus is also the dominant factor in disease. Life evolves within an infinite swarm of viruses. Virus swarm has been present in laboratories which studied the somatic mutation theory (SMT). It infected experimental animals, tissue cultures and transplanted tumors. Virus is the confounding variable of SMT. The somatic mutation theory is highly questionable. It is false! 1. Cancer is a viral disease. 2. Tumor evolution is a response to viral infection. 3. All tumors evolve in the same way. 4. Neoplasia is a process shaped by two components (sub-processes) 4a. A driving virus 4b. The response by the organism.

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), or often also Hughes syndrome, is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by antiphospholipid antibodies. APS provokes blood clots (thrombosis) in both arteries and veins as well as pregnancy-related complications such as miscarriage, stillbirth, preterm delivery, and severe preeclampsia. The diagnostic criteria require one clinical event, i.e. thrombosis or pregnancy complication, and two antibody blood tests spaced at least three months apart that confirm the presence of either lupus anticoagulant, or anti-β2-glycoprotein-I (since β2-glycoprotein-I antibodies are a subset of anti-cardiolipin antibodies, an anti-cardiolipin assay can be performed as a less specific proxy) Antiphospholipid syndrome can be primary or secondary. Primary antiphospholipid syndrome occurs in the absence of any other related disease. Secondary antiphospholipid syndrome occurs with other autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). In rare cases, APS leads to rapid organ failure due to generalised thrombosis; this is termed "catastrophic antiphospholipid syndrome" (CAPS) and is associated with a high risk of death. Antiphospholipid syndrome often requires treatment with anticoagulant medication such as heparin to reduce the risk of further episodes of thrombosis and improve the prognosis of pregnancy. Warfarin/Coumadin is not used during pregnancy because it can cross the placenta, unlike heparin, and is teratogenic.

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes Virchow's Triad, the etiology, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options. There are three factors that are thought to contribute to deep venous thrombosis 1-Endothelial injury 2-Venous stasis 3-Hypercoagulability = Virchow’s triad. Deep venous thrombosis or blood clots form in the deep veins usually in the legs. Although deep venous thrombosis predominantly occurs within the deep veins in the legs, it may also occur in the upper extremities. The deep veins pass through the deep tissues and muscles. Muscle contractions (Walking, running, activity, etc.) squeeze blood through the deep veins to the heart. The deep veins have valves which prevent the blood from flowing back to the feet and ankles. DVT is the formation of a blood clot (thrombus) within a deep vein. The majority of blood clots that form are small and they are usually broken down or dissolved. Large clots may form and can block the vein causing the patient to complain of pain and swelling. The clot may detach partially or totally (embolism). Some of the clots may be silent and show no symptoms. The detached blood clot may travel from the deep veins to the heart and then finally lodges itself in the pulmonary artery of the lungs. In some cases, the clot will pass through the heart to the aorta and create emboli in the brain (patent foramen ovale). Virchow’s triad contributes to the development of deep venous thrombosis. One of the triads may contribute more than the others. Platelet dysfunction is not part of the Virchow’s triad. Virchow’s triad: 1-endothelial injury: endothelial injury is secondary to injury or surgery. It induces thrombosis. May occur due to manipulation of fractures, dislocation, or from placement of retractors or pressure on the tissues. 2-Venous stasis: venous stasis will lead to platelet contact with the endothelial lining such as with use of tourniquet, hypotension, or with knee flexion during surgery. It occurs with impaired mobility in the elderly. Immobility will cause the venous circulation to slow down and the clotting factors in the blood to clump together, ultimately leading to DVT. In my opinion, the most important factor to prevent blood clots is maintaining the patient’s mobility. It is important to get the patient up out of bed and moving around when possible either on their own or with crutches. This is a simple preventive step. 3-Hypercoagulability: a-tissue debridement, collagen, fibrinogen, tissue thromboplastin. b-Blood diseases such as protein S and protein C deficiency. c-Abnormality in factor V Leiden. Risk factors for thromboembolism: 1-History of previous thromboembolism 2-Obesity 3-Malignant disease 4-Immobilization 5-Pregnancy 6-Old age 7-History of congestive heart failure 8-Oral contraceptives. 9-Genetic blood diseases (genetic hyper coagulable state). 10-Major orthopedic procedure: a-up to 60% of asymptomatic DVT in total joint arthroplasty without prophylaxis. b-Up to 20% of symptomatic DVT without prophylaxis. c-Proximal DVT in about 15-25%. d-Fatal pulmonary embolism up tp .05%. 11-Total knee arthroplasty: high risk of DVT. Low risk of pulmonary embolism. When giving prophylaxis, balance the risk of clotting with the risk of bleeding.

CASE 1 A 56 year old male had a long history of poorly controlled hypertension and type 2 diabetes mellitus leading to retinopathy and chronic renal failure. He also had a past history of paroxysmal AF and multiple PEs and was treated initially with Warfarin for many years, swapping over to Rivaroxaban about a year ago. 18 years ago he sustained an aortic root dissection causing acute renal failure and required a renal transplant. Since then, he has been treated with anti-rejection drugs in the form of Prednisolone, Tacrolimus and (periodically) Mycophenolate Mofetil. 2 years ago he developed chest pain. A CT scan showed type B aortic dissection requiring urgent treatment with a complex EVAR (Endovascular Aortic Repair). 6 months ago he developed an Endoleak which was treated with embolisation. 9 days ago, he was admitted with an acute myocardial infarction complicated by an in-hospital VF arrest. He was successfully resuscitated with a DC shock. A subsequent coronary angiogram showed occlusion of the first diagonal artery which was treated medically (no PCI). Now: - Fresh PR bleeding + clots/ melaena few days after coronary angiography - Hb 8.8 g/dl, 2 units blood transfused - OGD - normal - CT angio: bleeding from caecum ?angiodysplasia See video for colonoscopy... CASE 2 A 26 year old athletic male presented with a one day history of sudden abdominal pain during football practice followed by fresh rectal bleeding and loose bowels. He was previously a regular cocaine user but now was a "light, occasional” user. In addition, he was a regular cannabis smoker. There was no family history of IBD. Initial investigations: - Hb 14.5, WBC 20, CRP 2, Albumin 36 - Stool culture: -ve - AXR: nil significant - Flex sigmoidoscopy #1 (1 day after presentation): limited views, normal rectum/ sigmoid - CT scan: oedema of distal descending colon - Flexible sigmoidoscopy #2 (5 days after presentation) … see video. Ischaemic colitis is the most common type of intestinal ischaemia. The term "ischaemic colitis" was used by Marston (1966) with three typical patterns of injury described: transient reversible ischaemia, ischaemic ulcers with stricturing, and gangrenous ischaemic colitis. Dominant presenting symptoms were colicky abdominal pain, vomiting, bloody diarrhoea, and haematochezia. Patients often have minimal signs on clinical examination. The circulation to the large intestine and rectum is derived from the superior mesenteric artery (SMA), inferior mesenteric artery (IMA), and internal iliac arteries. An extensive collateral circulation protects the intestines from transient periods of inadequate perfusion. However, the "watershed" areas of the colon, which have limited collateral blood flow, such as the splenic flexure (Griffith’s point), rectosigmoid junction (Sudeck’s critical point) and right colon, are at risk for ischaemia particularly related to hypoperfusion. Colonic ischaemia is usually the result of a sudden, but usually transient, reduction in blood flow, the effects of which are particularly prominent at the “watershed” regions of the colon. Prolonged severe ischemia causes necrosis of the villous layer, which can lead to transmural infarction within 8 to 16 hours. Perfusion to the colon can be compromised by changes in the systemic circulation or by anatomic or functional changes in the local mesenteric vasculature. Risk factors include aorto-iliac instrumentation/surgery, cardiopulmonary bypass, myocardial infarction, haemodialysis, acquired or hereditary thrombophilia, certain drugs (e.g. cocaine, metamphetamine, pseudo-ephedrine, NSAIDs etc) and extreme exercise. Clinically, ischaemic colitis is classified as non-gangrenous or gangrenous. Non-gangrenous ischaemic colitis involves the mucosa and submucosa and accounts for 80-85% of cases and is further sub-classified into (1) transient, reversible ischaemic colitis with a less severe form of injury and (2) chronic, non-reversible ischaemic colitis, which includes chronic colitis and stricture and has a more severe form of injury. Gangrenous ischaemic colitis accounts for the remaining 15-20% of cases and manifests as the most severe form of injury. For most patients, management is supportive and non-interventional, and the prognosis for recurrence and survival are excellent. Some with severe disease require surgical intervention.

Blood Clot Treatment Naturally: In this video, we shared the blood clot treatment naturally, recommended treatment for the blood clot, blood clot symptoms. Subscribe to our channel for more videos. Watch: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLWz42-aWIM) How to Clear Blood Clots Naturally Lucky for us, nature has gifted us with more than a dozen clotting factors so that we don’t bleed ourselves to death. Certain conditions that predispose to a hypercoagulable blood cannot be changed, e.g. pregnancy, cancer, medicines like oral contraceptive pills, smoking, and genetic constitution, etc. However, the conditions that can be reversed or reduced considerably can be treated naturally by the methods below, all starting with Step 1. Changing Your Lifestyle -Stay active. Any activity which involves the action of skeletal muscles is very good to prevent blood clots. The energy spent on doing such activities for thirty minutes five to seven times a week equates to six hundred to twelve hundred calories spent per week. -Do specific exercises after long periods of immobility. -Do yoga. The yogic poses which stretch the calves, hip and hamstrings assist in healthy circulation of blood from the lower extremities to the heart. -Take a supplement. People who do not get enough dietary intake of Omega-3-fatty acids should consider taking a supplement. -Make sure you get adequate vitamins, too. Another cause which is a potential risk factor for the formation of clots is a high homocysteine level. -Keep the body hydrated. It always helps to take in lots of fluids. A dehydrated body is like an unlubricated body where the blood cells will be forced to stick to each other to form clots. -Pile on the omega-3s. Foods which are rich in omega-3 fatty acids have blood thinning properties as well as help in reducing the risk of forming blood clots.

It's named after the Dutch city Leiden, where it was first described. It is a cofactor with factor Xa, resulting in increasing the cascade to end up with increased polymerization of fibrin, forming clots too quickly. Doctors diagnose it by having a high index for suspicion for anyone with a clot. Venous clots or pulmonary embolus among ethnic Europeans can show over 30% probability of having this. If a patient has a clot, docs should check the clotting time. If positive, they should do the genetic test. Treatment involves special consideration for flying, surgery, oral contraceptives and pregnancy. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor. After seeing too many patients coming in dead from early heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine. He went on the run the post-graduate training program (residency) in Preventive Medicine at Hopkins. From there, he made a career of practicing and managing preventive medicine and primary care clinics. His later role in this area was Chief Medical Officer for Premise, which has over 500 primary care/ prevention clinics. He was also the Chief Medical Officer for MDLIVE, the second largest telemedicine company. More recently, he founded PrevMed, a heart attack, stroke, and diabetes prevention clinic. At PrevMed, we focus on heart attack and stroke and Type 2 diabetes prevention by reducing or eliminating risk through attentive care and state-of-the-art genetic testing, imaging, labs and telemedicine options. We serve patients who have already experienced an event as well as those have not developed a diagnosis or event. Our team of senior clinicians includes internationally recognized leaders in the research and treatment of cardiovascular disease, preventive medicine and wellness. We also provide preventive medicine by telemedicine technology to over 30 states. Contact Dr. Brewer at email@example.com or visit http://prevmedheartrisk.com.

Welcome to LY Med, where I go over everything you need to know for the USMLE STEP 1, with new videos every day. Follow along with First Aid, or with my notes which can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/mt1jrikc24022py/AADNAVG8cAj4Su7xFO74fLBka?dl=0 We're all done with renal physiology! Let's talk about some pathology. The big elephant in the room in renal path is going to be Nephrotic and Nephritic syndromes. Now your nephrons help you filter plasma via the Bowman's capsule and the glomerulus. Now there are things that don't get filtered through like blood (RBCs) and proteins. We want to keep these! But if your filtration system is damaged then these things can leak through. What is the filtration system? This includes the fenestrated epithelium, and basement membrane of the glomerulus, as well as the podocytes of the Bowman's capsule. These are large epithelial cells that have slits in them, as well as heparan sulfate which are negatively charged proteins that help push back proteins (charge barriers). All these defenses help us keep our blood and protein in our plasma. Damage causes leakage! IF the majority of what leaks out is protein we call that nephrotic syndrome. This causes frothy urine, and internally you lose oncotic pressure. This leads to edema and hyperlipidemia (fatty casts) as your liver tries to compensate for the loss of oncotic pressure. You can also lose proteins like antithrombin III (ATIII) leading to hypercoagulable state. You can also lose immunoglobulins leading to infections. Now if the fluid you lose is mainly blood, we call this nephritic syndrome. This leads to coca-cola urine, or red urine. This results in hypertension. So let's talk about nephrotic first. These include: Minimal change disease: seen in children, you lose albumin (selective proteinuria) and is associated with infections, immunizations, and Hodgkins lymphoma. Treatment is corticosteroids if necessary and on electron microscopy, you'll see flattening of the podocytes. Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis: this is seen more in blacks and hispanics and is associated with sickle cell disease, HIV, and heroin use. It leads to a focal sclerosis and destruction of the tubules. membranous glomerulonephritis: seen more in the white population. It is associated with hepatitis, cancer, SLE (lupus) and leads to deposition of immune complexes and thickening of the membrane. Amyloidosis: due to deposition of amyloid, the misfolded protein. Seen with Congo red stain. Diabetic nephropathy: sugar causes hyperfiltration damage to the kidneys and also causes hyaline arteriosclerosis of the efferent arteriole and thus increases GFR. This is a bad cycle and also why ACE inhibitors help in diabetic renal damage. Picked up with microalbuminuria and imaging shows large sclerosis that shows up as pick blobs (Kimmelstiel-Wilson nodules). That's nephrotic! Let's move on to nephritic syndrome. The types of nephritic syndrome is: Post-strep glomerulonephritis: due to infection of Group A strep. This bug has a lot of molecular mimicry, and can lead to things like rheumatic fever as well as this! Antibiotics can reduce RF but does not stop post-strep GN. Lab findings include anti-streptolysin O, and anti-DNAse B titers. Rapidly progressive aka crescentic glomerulonephritis: the most severe, it leads to sclerosis deposition of cells in the form of a crescent. There are several subtypes of this. One is called granular and is often a progression of another nephrotic/nephritic syndrome. Linear type is due to antibodies against the basement membrane of your kidneys and lungs. This leads to nephritic syndrome and hemoptysis and shortness of breath. Lastly is negative or Pauci Immune, which is called this due to the lack of deposition of compounds. This is due to vasculitis. There are three types: granulomatosis with polyangiitis (C-ANCA), microscopic polyangiitis (P-ANCA), and eosinophilic granulomatosis (P-ANCA positive but has eosinophils and is associated with asthma). IgA nephropathy: comes days after an infection and has a remitting course. Due to deposition of IgA. Alport syndrome: due to a defect in type 4 (IV) collagen. Seen in the ears, eyes, and kidneys, this leads to nephritic syndrome as well as difficulty seeing and deafness. Now there are some mixed disorders that can show up as both nephritic and nephrotic. These include: Diffuse proliferative: also associated with lupus, it has little loops seen on imaging. Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis: associated with hepatitis B and C. Type 1 has split basement membrane and Type 2 has the thickest membrane due to antibodies against C3 convertase (C3 nephritic factor). This leads to an overexpression of complements and that can cause deposition. Labs will show low complement due to deposition. That does it for this video!

Look for snp6025. "A" is the risk gene. "G" is wild type - no increase in risk. "AA" is 11 X increased risk. "AG" is 3-5 X risk. "GG" is no increased risk. Factor V Leiden is the most common inherited clotting disorder found among European Caucasians. It is found in 1 in 20. It causes venous clots. In patients under 45 yo presenting with a clot, these patients have a 1 in 3 chance of Factor V Leiden. It stops the Factor V proprotein, which usually slows Factor V's amplification of the clotting cascade mechanism. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.

Getting less than 6 hours a night of sleep is a risk factor in postmenopausal women with stage 1 or 2, estrogen positive, node negative breast cancer using the Oncotype DX tumor test. It measures the risk of tumor recurrence based on the expression of 21 oncogenes. Lack of sleep causes inflammation in the body that increases the risk for obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, osteoporosis, hypertension, cancer and much more. It results in both leptin and insulin resistance. Diet, exercise, weight management, stress reduction, adequate sleep, and avoidance of toxic exposures are all lifestyle factors that are important fundamentals that maintain good health. Take Dr. Saputo's Breast Cancer Health Assessment Once you have breast cancer you need to know the best strategies to slow down or reverse its growth. In Dr. Saputo's Breast Cancer Health Assessment we will ask you about the type of breast cancer you have, what treatment you've considered or completed, whether or not you're interested in CAM approaches to treatment, and important lifestyle factors that could have an impact on how your cancer will affect you. You will immediately be emailed back audios and videos Dr. Saputo believes will guide you to information that can help you manage your cancer and support the body's immune defenses.

IEF Project Spotlight: Therapeutic Plasma Levels of Aminocaproic Acid in Asian Elephants (Final Report) The goal of this project was to determine if aminocaproic acid (EACA), a drug used to prevent uncontrolled bleeding, could be effective in Asian elephants. Elephants can experience uncontrolled bleeding from a variety of causes, including following an infection with the elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus (EEHV). Due to their large size and limited blood banking resources, treatment options for an elephant with uncontrolled bleeding are severely limited. Aminocaproic acid is widely used in human and domestic animal medicine to stabilize blood clots and prevent hemorrhage, and may have applications to elephants as well. We succeeded in developing an in vitro model of hyperfibrinolysis (blood clot breakdown), mimicking a diseased state. We then succeeded in reversing this diseased state through addition of EACA. The elephant plasma required a lower concentration of EACA to inhibit fibrinolysis, compared to humans and dogs. Our results suggest that EACA may be effective in preventing bleeding in elephants in vivo, and may be a valuable treatment option for a variety of bleeding disorders, including animals with EEHV infection presenting with hemorrhage.

CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) -- May is stroke awareness month. A new report says there is a dangerous trend in those who are having the most common types of stroke or injury to the brain. Some alarming numbers are in this new report. Not just in the number of strokes people have each year, but those who do have strokes are at younger ages. One of the best ways to lower stroke risk is to reduce your blood pressure. Many people at the Mercy HealthPlex are in cardiac rehab which helps you recover from heart attack and stroke. But according to the new report from the American Academy of Neurology, researchers found about 15 percent of ischemic strokes,the most common type, are in those ages 18 to 44. They are not sure why more young adults are having stroke. It may be due to higher obesity rates, or that we don't watch blood pressure, and it may be due to diabetes rates also. We might think of these as minor inconveniences, but they can play a role in stroke risk. If you have these, ask your doctor how to lower your risk. Over time these things can make a difference.

The N Engl J Med image of the week shows an extended tongue. You are offered amyloidosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, pellagra, pernicious anemia, and Sjögren’s syndrome. All these conditions can involve the tongue. Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS or) is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by antiphospholipid antibodies. APS provokes blood clots (thrombosis) in both arteries and veins as well as pregnancy-related complications such as miscarriage, stillbirth, preterm delivery, or severe preeclampsia. Renal failure commonly develops and transplantation is then necessary. The molecular pathways involved in the vasculopathy of the antiphospholipid syndrome are unknown and adequate therapies are lacking. Invesitgators used double immunostaining to evaluate pathway activation in the mammalian target of rapamycin complex (mTORC) and the nature of cell proliferation in the vessels of patients with primary or secondary antiphospholipid syndrome nephropathy. They also performed a brief intervention trial. This study opens up novel options for antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. The safety and effectiveness of automated glycemic management have not been tested in multiday studies under unrestricted outpatient conditions. Diabetologists conducted two random-order, crossover studies with similar but distinct designs, to compare glycemic control with a wearable, bihormonal, automated, “bionic” pancreas (bionic-pancreas period) with glycemic control with an insulin pump (control period) for 5 days in 20 adults and 32 adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus. Interestingly, the Model 4S iPhone played a pivotal role. Interleukin-17A is considered to be central to the pathogenesis of psoriasis. Investigators next evaluated secukinumab, a fully human anti-interleukin-17A monoclonal antibody, in patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis. The antibody was compared to etanercept therapy. Hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation is a potentially lifesaving therapy for several blood cancers and other diseases. For patients without a suitable related HLA-matched donor, unrelated-donor registries of adult volunteers and banked umbilical cord–blood units, such as the Be the Match Registry operated by the National Marrow Donor Program, provide potential sources of donors. The next investigators’ goal was to measure the likelihood of finding a suitable donor in the U.S. registry. Looks like it helps to be white and rich. Asplenia refers to the absence of normal spleen function and is associated with some serious infection risks. Hyposplenism is used to describe reduced ('hypo-') splenic functioning, but not as severely affected as with asplenism. We review the management of persons with poor or no splenic function. We then visit a 6 year-old girl with tinnitus in one ear. Our patient of the week is a 41 year-old man with fever leukopenia, lymphocytosis, abnormal liver enzymes, and a morbilliform rash. Etrolizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody that selectively binds the β7 subunit of the heterodimeric integrins α4β7 and αEβ7. Lancet investigators aimed to assess etrolizumab in patients with moderately-to-severely active ulcerative colitis, compared to conventional therapy and placebo. Patients with radioactive iodine (131I)-refractory locally advanced or metastatic differentiated thyroid cancer have a poor prognosis because of the absence of effective treatment options. In the next study, investigators assessed the efficacy and safety of orally administered sorafenib in the treatment of patients with this type of cancer. Müllerian agenesis, also called Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome or MRKH, named after August Franz Joseph Karl Mayer, Carl Freiherr von Rokitansky, Hermann Kuster, and G. A. Hauser, is a congenital malformation characterized by a failure of the Müllerian duct to develop, resulting in a missing uterus and variable malformations of the upper portion of the vagina. We next inspect an astounding study involving tissue engineering to help these women by constructing new vaginas and improving their quality of life. Autologous native cartilage from the nasal septum, ear, or rib is the standard material for surgical reconstruction of the nasal alar lobule after two-layer excision of non-melanoma skin cancer. The next tissue engineers assessed whether or not engineered autologous cartilage grafts allow safe and functional alar lobule restoration. These investigators also achieved a remarkable positive result. Pylephlebitis (also called infective suppurative thrombosis of the portal vein) is an uncommon thrombophlebitis of the portal vein or any of its branches. We review the topic.

The N Engl J Med image of the week shows a head-and-neck CT of a 35 year-old man with neck pain and swallowing difficulties for over a year. You are offered cervical spondyloarthropathy, fish-bone foreign body, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, Ernest syndrome, and Eagle’s syndrome. Knowledge of head-and-neck anatomy is helpful here. Experimental and clinical data suggest that reducing inflammation without affecting lipid levels may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Yet, the inflammatory hypothesis of atherothrombosis has remained unproved. Investigators conducted a randomized, double-blind trial of canakinumab, a therapeutic monoclonal antibody targeting interleukin-1β, involving 10,061 patients with previous myocardial infarction and a high-sensitivity C-reactive protein level of 2 mg or more per liter. The trial compared three doses of canakinumab (50 mg, 150 mg, and 300 mg, administered subcutaneously every 3 months) with placebo. The primary efficacy end point was nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfatal stroke, or cardiovascular death. Canakinumab induced more sepsis deaths, which is not surprising. However, cancer deaths were reduced, which surprised me. Effects on cardiovascular outcomes was significant but at $200,000 per year hardly practicable. Heparin is used as the anticoagulant for percutaneous coronary interventions in Europe, while bivalirudin is favored in the USA. Swedish investigators enrolled patients with either ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) or non-STEMI (NSTEMI) who were undergoing PCI and receiving treatment with a potent P2Y12 inhibitor (ticagrelor, prasugrel, or cangrelor) without the planned use of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors. The trialists found no significant difference between treatment with bivalirudin and treatment with heparin with respect to the rate of death, repeat myocardial infarction, or major bleeding events during 180 days of follow-up. US surgeons report 12-year outcomes for Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery for obesity. There are two control groups, namely the uninsured and the unwilling. Weight loss comprised about 30% of body mass in the operated, while the control groups lost no weight. Type-2 diabetes regressed, at least if the patients were not yet insulin-dependent and new cases of diabetes were decreased. A salubrious effect on blood pressure is also reported. We next inspect a genome-wide association study on gestational duration and preterm birth. Five genes were found with astoundingly low p values. However, the practicable magnitude of the effects was not given. There are excellent reviews on food allergy and the point of performing molecular diagnostic screening (thrombophilia testing) after venous thromboembolism. The case of the week involves a 59 year-old woman with a two week history of an asymmetrical polyarthropathy with acutely inflamed affected joints. Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a severe, progressive, and rare neuromuscular, X-linked recessive disease. Dystrophin deficiency is the underlying cause of disease; therefore, mutation-specific therapies aimed at restoring dystrophin protein production are being explored. Investigators aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of ataluren in ambulatory boys with nonsense mutation DMD. Ataluren is a small molecule designed to cause stop codons to be skipped over during translation. I found the results disappointing and modest. Cabotegravir and rilpivirine are antiretroviral drugs in development as long-acting injectable formulations. The LATTE-2 study evaluated long-acting cabotegravir plus rilpivirine for maintenance of HIV-1 viral suppression through 96 weeks. The injectable strategy was effective. mRNA vaccines combine desirable immunological properties with an outstanding safety profile and the unmet flexibility of genetic vaccines. Based on in situ protein expression, mRNA vaccines are capable of inducing a balanced immune response comprising both cellular and humoral immunity while not subject to MHC haplotype restriction. We inspect a German mRNA vaccine in humans directed against rabies. Japan has entered the era of super-ageing and advanced health transition, which is increasingly putting pressure on the sustainability of its health system. The level and pace of this health transition might vary across regions within Japan and concern is growing about increasing regional variations in disease burden. If the poor Japanese would just stop smoking and embrace healthier life styles, their Global Burden of aging could get even worse. We inspect reviews on cholera and on hypothyroidism. We close the session with a patient who has mycosis fungoides. How is this T-cell lymphoma best treated?
