Transfer Factor Revisited: Treatment of Chronic Mucocutaneous Candidiasis in a Child with Autoimmune Polyendocrinopathy Syndrome Type-1

J Kelly Smith

Article Type: CASE REPORT | First Published: September 15, 2018

A 5-year-old boy was diagnosed as having chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis at the age of three months. He showed no improvement despite treatment with two courses of intravenous amphotericin B, 2½ years of oral 5-fluorocytosine, and daily treatment with topical Mycostatin. An immune assessment revealed that he was anergic and had low levels of circulating FCγR+ monocytes. Buccal smears revealed ...

Painless Thyroiditis Induced by Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors in a Patient with Small Cell Lung Cancer

Maria Jose Burches Feliciano, Antonia Perez Lazaro and Juan Francisco Merino Torres

Article Type: CASE REPORT | First Published: September 14, 2018

New antineoplastic agents consisting of specific monoclonal antibodies which enhance the host's immune response against the tumoral cells are becoming more common in clinical practice. Ipilimumab, an antibody that blocks the cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen 4 (CTLA-4), and nivolumab, a programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) inhibitor are now approved for several advanced neoplasias such as melanoma, non-sma...

Impact of Exclusive Breastfeeding on Digital Sucking in Children Attending the Children's Outpatient Department of University of Uyo Teaching Hospital, Uyo

Oloyede Iso Precious and Okpokowuruk Frances Sam

Article Type: RESEARCH ARTICLE | First Published: September 12, 2018

Sucking of the digits is the most common oral habit found in children. It is a form of non-nutritive sucking which appears to be influenced by various factors. When the habit becomes prolonged, it can lead to both dental and hand complications. Breastfeeding is one of the factors known to be protective against this habit in children. Therefore, the aim of this study was to find out the prevalence of digital sucking in our environment and the influence of breastfeeding/exclusive breast feeding including various sociodemographic variables on this habit in children in our environment....

Iron-Overload, Oxidative DNA Damage and Differential Transcript Expression of Iron Homeostasis Genes in Human Cortical Cataracts

Sankaranarayanan Rajkumar, Nair Gopinathan Vidya, Darshini Ankit Ganatra and Abhay Raghukant Vasavada

Article Type: ORIGINAL RESEARCH | First Published: September 10, 2018

The purpose of the study is to determine the level of iron, its role in oxidative damage and to profile and measure the level of transcript expression of genes responsible for iron homeostasis in lenses of human cataracts. Human whole lenses (WLs) were obtained from donors' eyes (n = 33) within 8 hours of death. A total of 167 (control, n = 35 and cataract, n = 132) anterior central capsules (ACC)...

Social Networking Sites (SNSs) Addiction

Basem Abbas Al Ubaidi

Article Type: REVIEW ARTICLE | First Published: September 10, 2018

Social Networking Sites (SNSs) in our lives are an essential computer-generated combination regarded as a 'global customer phenomenon'. In recent times, as statistics have shown, this phenomenon daily records a dramatic increase in its users. It is a state of mental addiction, an illness if you may so call it for some users. It has been noted that some extroverts use social networks for social augmentation, whereas introverts use it for social compensation. Addicted customers mostly deal with low conscientiousness and high narcissism, and in the same vein, it has been noticed addiction harms t...

Control Excessive Anger before it Controls Your Life

Basem Abbas Al Ubaidi

Article Type: REVIEW ARTICLE | First Published: September 10, 2018

There is usually a public misconception between anger, aggression, and hostility. Anger is a sense of emotion that ranges from the standard reaction of mild irritation to the intense response of fury and rage. Anger becomes a dilemma if it felt too intensely, frequently, expressed inappropriately and associated with extreme physical/mental strain on the individual. On the other hand, aggression is an often-violent behavior that causes harm or injury to another person or property. While, hostility, is a set of attitude and judgement that motivates aggressive behaviors....

Resveratrol, Blueberry, Cranberry and Raspberry Exhibit Protection Effect to Photodamaged Hair

Julia de Souza Gomes, Marina Silva Rita, Joao Marcos da Cunha Altomare, Nadia Rezende Barbosa Raposo, Marcos Antonio Fernandes Brandao and Hudson Caetano Polonini

Article Type: RESEARCH ARTICLE | First Published: September 07, 2018

When hair is exposed to the sun there may occur protein degradation, which alters its physical appearance. Thus, beneficial hair adjuvants with addition of natural sunscreens are sought for cosmetics development. In this study, we developed hair conditioning products containing blueberry, raspberry, cranberry and resveratrol in different proportions, incorporated into TrichoCond®. In vitro photoprotection capacities of the products and cystine content of the hair samples after treatments were determined. Two conditioners out of the seven tested presented a significative sun protection. Three ...

When Equipment Misbehaves: Severe Respiratory Acidosis Resulting from a Compromised Coaxial Circuit

Anh Q Dang, Marc Rozner, Nicole Luongo and Shital Vachhani

Article Type: CASE REPORT | First Published: September 07, 2018

The construction of a coaxial circle breathing circuit encloses the inspiratory limb within the expiratory limb to preserve heat, humidity, anesthetic gas, and oxygen. However, the construction also makes kinks or breaks in the enclosed inspiratory limb difficult to detect. With kinking or disconnection of the central inspiratory limb, the patient may rebreathe expiratory gases, leading to a significant increase in dead space and concomitant respiratory acidosis. We describe a clinical case in which a disconnection in the inner inspiratory limb of a King (King Circuits, Noblesville, IN) coaxia...

Advanced MRI Sequences (Diffusion and Perfusion): Its Value in Parotid Tumors

Merino Domingo F, Martin Medina P, Lopez Fernandez P, Zafra Vallejo V, Salvador Alvarez E, Gutierrez Diaz R, Sanchez Aniceto G and Ramos A

Article Type: RESEARCH ARTICLE | First Published: September 07, 2018

Tumors of salivary glands constitute 3% of neoplasms of the body. Clinical signs and symptoms usually occur in tumors at advance stages. Dynamic-contrast-enhanced and diffusion-weighted MR sequences have been described as useful diagnostic tools in other locations. Our goal is to evaluate the utility of these techniques for parotid tumors. We retrospectively reviewed the Parotid tumors operated by...
