Sinan Cem Uzunget, MD, Zamir Kemal Erturk, MD, Vahide Bilir Ozban, MD and Osman Hakan Guclu, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: April 15, 2019

Glaucopsia is a rare disease that ensue with blue/gray vision or blurring of vision as a result of amine exhalation effect. It is known that the amine vapor forms caused epithelial edema and microcysts formation under the epithelium of the corneal surface. This mechanism is reason of ocular effects. The symptoms of amine effect start 30-90 minutes after exposure and within 4-6 hours and it recovers without any treatment. Amine vapor does not associate any chronic eye diseases. We present a case ...

Several advancements are made in the field of immunotherapy for enabling an effective cure for cancer. Treatments are being approached with multipronged approach with combination therapies as well as by gene therapy. Cancer incidence however progressing further mainly due to the changes in lifestyle. Epidemiological surveys indicate that cancer incidence is being more predominant in females; in particularly breast cancer is the most common diseases throughout world. However, the treatments attem...

The Importance of Detecting Regulatory T Cells in Neonatal Sepsis

Yao Yu, Yingzuo Shi and Yisen Zhang, MD

Article Type: Short Review | First Published: April 11, 2019

Sepsis is a deadly complication of pediatric infection. Tregs are a typical subset of lymphocytes showing immune suppressive function. Tregs show grateful influence to immune system in neonatal sepsis. The proportion of Tregs relate with inflammatory response, Oxidative stress sepsis and this would be a new curing targeting to immunotherapy. In this short review, we analysis the research findings of Tregs in neonatal sepsis and emphasize the significance of Tregs. Sepsis is a common critical ill...

Assessment of the Degree of Stress during Pediatric Ground Transport

Carme Alejandre, MD, David Vila, PhD, Ana Olego, M Jose Tovar, Angels Llorens, Marta Hernandez, M Paz Larrosa and Elisabeth Esteban, PhD

Article Type: Original Research Article | First Published: April 11, 2019

A total of 220 patients were included, of whom 135 were male (61.4%) with a median age of 2.5 months (IQR 3 days-21 months). Median transfer time was 29 minutes (IQR 13-52 minutes). Sixty-three patients needed non-invasive ventilation (28.6%). The median score before the transfer was 16 (IQR 15-19) and after it 16 (IQR 14-18). In 23 cases (10.5%) patients were accompanied by their parents in the ambulance; no statistically significant differences were observed in the value of the score (p 0.959)...
