Simple Protocol to Initiate and Intensify Insulin in Primary Care

Faris Matloub

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: January 21, 2019

The primary care physician often faced with type 2 diabetes that need insulin, usually when two or more oral hypoglycemic agents were tried and failed to maintain target glycemic control, owing to gradual decline in insulin secretion due to reduction of beta cell function. The likelihood for starting insulin is more the longer duration of diabetes. The United Kingdom Prospective Diabetes Study told us that 53% of patients initially treated with sulphonylureas required insulin therapy at 6 years, reaching up to almost 80% at 9 years....

Stigma Remains a Significant Barrier to HIV Knowledge and Treatment in Zambia

Danielle A Walker, Kyle L Johnson and Jacen S Moore

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 21, 2019

Despite high HIV prevalence in Zambia, which lies within the heart of sub-Saharan Africa, early implementation of public policy and programs to effectively manage the burden of disease has insured consistently high testing rates. Zambian strategies to combat the HIV/AIDS crisis employ governmental support for HIV testing and public education and can serve as models for neighboring countries to advance the development of effective testing and treatment initiatives. Although these testing programs have proven highly successful, stigma and gaps in public knowledge continue to hamper access to tre...

Is A Body Shape Index (ABSI) Predictive of Lung Functions?

Mohsen Soltanifar, Chandima Karunanayake, Dinesh Khadka, Raina Henderson, Niels Konehnck, Sylvia Abonyi, James A Dosman, Punam Pahwa, Mark Fenton and the First Nations Lung Health Project and Saskatchewan Rural Health Research Teams

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 19, 2019

The available spirometric lung function equations in Canadian context have been limited to age and height as predictors and Caucasian ethnicity. The plausible equations with other individual predictors and First Nations populations are missing in the current literature. To set an initial investigation in terms of study sample size and simple reference spirometric equations on the association of the set of conventional predictors in companion with two new predictors BMI and ABSI with spirometric lung function equations in Canadian First Nations Cree Populations....

Intraleukocytic Yeast Inclusions and Toxic Granulation Neutrophils on Peripheral Blood Smear: An Interesting Synergy between Hematology and Microbiology

Fabio Miglietta, Claudio Palumbo, Fernando Parente, Luciano Velardi, Rosella Matera, Luigi Conte, Michela Dargenio, Maurizio Quarta, Milva Maria Nuzzo, Nicola Di Renzo and Giambattista Lobreglio

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 18, 2019

The presence of yeast neutrophil inclusions was observed and discussed several times in other reports; moreover some works demonstrated how Toxic Granulation Neutrophils (TGNs) are especially helpful in predicting acute bacterial infection, while the development of candidaemia-related TGNs was rarely described and in-depth. We describe two occasional findings of neutrophil inclusions and marked TGNs respectively due to Candida tropicalis and Candida guillermondi on peripheral blood smear....

Profile of Pathologies Diagnosed in Patients Hospitalized in a Ward of Infectious Diseases at the Era of HIV in Bamako, Mali West Africa

Cissoko Y, Traore F, Dicko MS, Konate I, Sidibe AF, Dembele JP, Fongoro S and Dao S

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 16, 2019

Infectious diseases remain major public health issues with their corollary of epidemic and endemic disease, principally in developing countries. In 2010, the number of infections diseases related deaths was estimated to 15 millions per year worldwide and the World Health Organization (WHO) fore-casts this number to 13 million in 2050. These various infectious diseases, from the most frequent like malaria to the less like neglected tropical diseases are a scourge for developing countries and are major cause of hospitalization in Africa....

A Correlation Study of Lower-Limb Gait Biomechanics with Clinical Severity in Patients with Achilles Tendinopathy

Ogbonmwan I and Kumar BD

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 16, 2019

Achilles tendinopathy is one of the most common lower-limb overuse sports injuries and is also frequent in the general population. Annual incidence rates of Achilles tendon complaints have been reported as 7% and 9% respectively in elite runners and 14% generally in athletes. A large cohort of 57,725 Dutch patients registered with a GP established an annual incidence rate of mid-portion Achilles Tendinopathy as 1.85 per 1000 patients registered. Remarkably only 35% of the cases in the study were related to sports activity....

Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection and the Takotsubo Syndrome: An Association to be Taken into Account

Veronica Hernandez Jimenez, Aranzazu Garcia Romero and Jesus Saavedra Falero

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 16, 2019

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) and Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) are two causes of acute non-arteriosclerotic myocardial infarction. These two entities share some characteristics such as greater involvement in women, preceded by an emotional stressor and an etiopathogeny not clearly known. Recently it has been seen that these two entities may be related. We describe a case of a young woman with a myocardial infarction due to a SCAD who developed a TTS. A 44-year-old woman, without known cardiovascular risk factors, who went to the Emergency Department due to a chest pain lasting 2 ho...

Plastic Additive Bisphenol A: Toxicity in Surface- and Groundwater Crustaceans

Gerhardt A

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 16, 2019

Bisphenol A (BPA) is being considered by the European Union as a substance of very high concern, occurring worldwide due to its wide application in many plastic products, building materials, coatings and epoxy resins. The toxicity of BPA in groundwater invertebrates is insufficiently understood. Both acute (24 h) and chronic (28 d) toxicity was compared in Daphnia magna and ecologically important crustaceans in surface water (Gammarus fossarum, Eucyclops serrulatus) and groundwater (Niphargopsis casparyi, Proasellus slavus). Survival and spontaneous locomotory activity was recorded in real-tim...

A New QSAR Model for Acute Fish Toxicity based on Mined Structural Alerts

Giuseppina Gini, Thomas Ferrari, Anna Lombardo, Antonio Cassano and Emilio Benfenati

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 14, 2019

In this paper we discuss the problem of predicting the fish toxicity property of chemical compounds, and show how this can be approached using a computational intelligence method. There are two views on assessing toxicities: One says that such properties can be derived from the whole molecular structure, the other that some specific functional substructures, called Structural Alerts (SA), are able to explain the toxicity. In this work, a new Structure-Activity Relationship (SAR) approach is proposed to mine molecular fragments that act like SAs for the biological activity. We apply our data mi...

Clinical Inspection and Image Exams Evaluation of Traumatic Wounds: A Case Report

Vitor Jose Fonseca, Renata Silveira Sagnori, Gabriel Albuquerque Guillen, Marcio de Moraes and Alexander Tadeu Sverzut

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 14, 2019

The face is in a position exposed to trauma, which often leads to soft tissue rupture, favoring the penetration and retention of foreign bodies. The present paper is a case report which aims to clarify some pitfalls in the evaluation of traumatic wounds. A 28-year-old female who was a victim of an automobile accident, presenting lacerations in the face already sutured during our evaluation, with suspicion of bone fractures. Computed tomography evaluation showed comminuted fractures in the anterior frontal sinus wall and foreign bodies similar to glass fragments within the frontal sinus and rig...
