Akash Raj, Ateeque Yousif, John Awad and Babar Elahi

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: October 12, 2018

Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness worldwide and the most widely used surgical procedure for glaucoma is trabeculectomy, which creates a guarded fistula between the anterior chamber and the sub-conjunctival space. Although the history of surgical management of glaucoma dates to 1856, when Von Graefe introduced iridectomy as a treatment for acute glaucoma; the history of trabeculecto...

Serological Evidence of Dengue and Chikungunya Exposures in Malian Children by Multiplex Bead Assay

Delynn M Moss, Matthew T Whitney, Anna N Chard, Victoria Trinies, Seydou Doumbia, Christin H Goodman, Stevan Bullard, Ryan E Wiegand, Matthew C Freeman, Patrick J Lammie and Gwong-Jen Chang

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 11, 2018

We opportunistically included a chikungunya envelope 1 recombinant virus antigen (CHIKV E1), a dengue 2 virus-like protein (DENV-2 VLP), and a DENV-3 VLP in a multiplex bead assay (MBA) for serological assessment involving improvements in water, sanitation, and hygiene for students attending 42 elementary schools in southern Mali in Western Africa. From students attending grades 1-6,805 dried blood spots (DBS) were collected. Immunoglobulin (Ig) G was eluted from the DBS and was probed for responses to the antigens. For all students, positive IgG responses to CHIKV E1, DENV-2 VLP, and DENV-3 V...

A Novel Mutation in the MFN2 Gene Associated with Hereditary Sensory and Motor Neuropathy with Proximal Predominance (HMSN-P)- A Case Report

D Hettiaracchchi, K Weththasigha, N Nethikumara, S Pathirana and WHV Dissanayaka

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 17, 2018

Mutations in mitofusin 2 gene have been reported in Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 2 disease also known as Hereditary Sensory and Motor Neuropathy. With its cytogenetic location: 1p36.22. A 43-year-old female with a family history of neuropathy was experiencing gradual detrition and proximal weakness of the bilateral lower limb for the past 3 years. Her MRI scan (Brain and whole Spinal) was normal and Electromyography (EMG) report was suggestive of motor & sensory demyelinating polyneuropathy with features of segmental involvement. Her Creatine phosphokinase (CPK) levels were marginally elevated. Ho...

Response Prediction to Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Prior to Interval Debulking Surgery and the Outcome of Responders Compared to Nonresponders

Michal Levy, Joseph Menczer, Mona Boaz, Ayelet Wandel, Yossi Mizrachi and Tally Levy

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: October 17, 2018

Neoajuvant Chemotherapy (NACT) followed by Interval Debulking Surgery (IDS) is an acceptable therapeutic approach for selected patients with advanced stage Ovarian Carcinoma (OvC) and Primary Peritoneal Carcinoma (PPC) patients. Our aim was to assess whether the combined presence of reduction of the diameter of the largest tumor mass and of the CA125 level predict response to Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy (NACT). Clinicopathological data were abstracted from medical records of consecutive OvC and PPC patients who received paclitaxel + carboplatin NACT and underwent IDS. Computed tomography (CT) ima...

Treatment of Acquired Retrognathia Secondary to Infantile Temporomandibular Joint Luxation with Intraoral Vertico-Sagittal Ramus Osteotomy

Khaled Gamal Dahy, Katsu Takahashi, Honoka Kiso, Kensaku Aihara, Kazuo Chin and Kazuhisa Bessho

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 17, 2018

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders are under-diagnosed in pediatric patients, and infantile TMJ luxation is a very rare condition. Luxation early in life can cause skletofacial problems, such as retrognathia, if it is left untreated for a long time. It is well known that severe retrognathia is one of the most common causes of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). The authors report a case of infa...

Identification and Molecular Epidemiology of Mycobacterial Isolates in Kayseri/Turkey

Murat KARAUZ, A Nedret KOC and Altay ATALAY

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: October 17, 2018

Early diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis (TB) patients are the most effective ways to protect society from this disease. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the molecular epidemiology of mycobacterial strains by repetitive sequence PCR (rep-PCR) using the DiversiLab System method at Kayseri in Turkey. A total of fifteen clinically sample isolated Mycobacterial strains were identified as M. tuberculosis complex (MTBC) and non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) by the rep-PCR method (bioMerieux), SD (Standard Diagnostics) rapid tests. Genotyping was performed by the rep-PCR method and...

Pathogenic Beliefs and their Relevance in Psychotherapy: A Written Case Study

Jennifer Kadur, Irina Flaig, Jana Volkert, Isa Sammet and Sylke Andreas

Article Type: Case Study | First Published: October 17, 2018

Goals of this single-case study are to assess whether tests according to Control Mastery Theory (CMT) can be reliably identified by trained raters and to examine whether the Psychotherapy Process Q-Sort method can adequately represent the test situation. A single case was analyzed by well-trained psychology graduates on the basis of the Plan Formulation Method. The interrater reliability of the identified tests was examined. In addition, the tests were classified according to the Psychotherapy Process Q-Sort....
