The Role of Human Papillomavirus in Cervical Cancer

Beata Smolarz, Dariusz Samulak, Marianna Makowska, Hanna Romanowicz, Zbigniew Kojs, Luiza Wojcik and Magdalena M Michalska

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: September 28, 2019

Long-term infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) is the cause of cervical cancer and its precursor - cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). The presence of HPV infection can be presumed in more than 99% of cases of cervical cancer worldwide. The introduction of DNA testing for the presence of HPV has increased the effectiveness of screening programs for the detection of this cancer. This article contains the latest reports on the structure, function and role of HPV in the development of cervical cancer. It was also underlined the importance of performing molecular tests for the presence ...

Association between Platelet/Lymphocyte Ratio and Angiographic No-Reflow in Patients with None-St Segment Elevation Acute Myocardial Infarction Undergoing Primary Coronary Intervention

Ramazan Asoglu, Abdulmecit Afsin, Emin Asoglu3 and Arif Suner

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 26, 2019

Inflammation and platelet activation play a central role in the initiation and progression of the atherosclerosis process. The Platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) is a new prognostic marker in coronary artery disease. The PLR is a significant independent predictor of longterm mortality after none-ST elevated myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). We aimed to evaluate the relationship between PLR and no-reflow (NR) in patients with NSTEMI. The present study included 173 patients with NSTEMI. The patients were classified into two groups as follows: 115 patients in the NR group and 58 patients in the nor...

Social Influences of Teachers, Classmates, and Parents on Children's Commitment to Physical Education and Language Education

Derwin KC Chan, Karen CH Lo and Felix Cheung

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 30, 2019

This study aims to examine the social influences of teachers, classmates and parents (i.e., positive reinforcement and punishment) on childrens commitment to physical education (PE) and language education (LE). Children from the UK (N = 614; Mean age = 13.05, SD = 2.01) completed the Perceived Social Influence Scale (Chan, et al. 2012), and also measures of competence, enjoyment, and effort in either the PE or LE context. Multi-group structural equation modelling (CFI = 0.97-0.98; TLI = 0.96-0.97; RMSEA = 0.03-0.04) showed that social influences from teachers, classmates, and parents explained...

Working through Others - A Qualitative Content Analysis of Nursing Students’ Experiences with Malnutrition at One Hospital in Vietnam

Elin Eriksson, RN, BSc, Victoria Ferm, RN, BSc and Kristina Rosengren, PhD, RN

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: October 05, 2019

Malnutrition causes problems in Vietnam, including illnesses with physiological and psychological complications. The aim of this study was to describe nursing students experiences with malnutrition at one hospital in Vietnam. Interviews of eight nursing students were performed, and the results were analysed by qualitative content analysis. This study highlights the use of guidelines in collaboration (between staff and patients’ relatives) to facilitate early identification and/or prevent malnutrition by improving self-care, as supported through nursing activities using family-centred care as...

Saphenous Vein Graft Aneurysm and Coronary Artery Disease: Case Report

Victor Rodrigues Ribeiro Ferreira, Maria Christiane Valeria Braga Braile-Sternieri, Eliana Migliorini Mustafa, Giovanni Braile Sternieri, Sofia Braile Sabino, Cibele Olegário Vianna Queiroz, Bethina Canaroli Sbardellini, Luiza Braile Verdi, Idiberto José Zotarelli Filho and Domingo Marcolino Braile

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 28, 2019

Despite a general reduction in the number of myocardial revascularization surgeries in recent decades, more than 150,000 are still performed annually in the United States. Early complications of venous graft use include an occlusion rate of up to 25% in the first year. The aneurysmal dilatation of the great saphenous vein, when used in aorto- coronary venous bridges, is rare and requires important care by the cardiology team. This study aimed to present a case report on saphenous vein aneurysm in a patient with coronary artery disease and myocardial ischemia who was diagnosed by angiotomograph...

On the Neurophysiology of Delusional Disorders: Top-Bottom vs. Bottom-Up Theories

Gentian Vyshka and Jera Kruja

Article Type: Opinion Paper | First Published: October 14, 2019

The psychopathology of delusions has been indelibly denoted from top-bottom theories, with a very long psychiatric tradition explaining the issue as a cortical derangement. The reverse face of the entire issue has been poorly if ever, scrutinized. The role of the peripheral nervous system in the installing and the maintaining of delusive ideas and convictions, albeit elusive, need to be addressed. The hallmark of bottom-up theory relies upon distorted primary processing of peripheral stimuli, with the cortex ingenuously entering a vicious circle of false perceptions, and therefore of false bel...

Disseminated Nocardiosis in an Immunosuppressed Patient with Sarcoidosis

Zachary Koehler, OMS IV, MPH, Jun Park, MD and Nicholas Jenkins, MD

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 07, 2019

Nocardiosis is a relatively rare disease with an incidence of 3 cases per 1,000,000 each year in the United States. The infection is caused by the Nocardia spp., which are aerobic, gram-positive, branching, weakly acid-fast bacilli found primarily in soil, water and decaying vegetation. Nocardiosis can be localized to a single organ, such as the skin or lung, or disseminated. Immunocompetent patients who are affected typically experience a chronic course involving one organ, most commonly the lung. Patients who are immunocompromised, such as organ transplant recipients or patients on long-term...

An Unusual Case of Palpitations: Pectus Excavatum

Zulfiqar Ali Sandhu, Sharjeel Shaikh and Aidan Buckley

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: October 04, 2019

Pectus excavatum is a congenital deformation of the chest, presenting as a funnel-shaped impression in the median frontal chest between the fourth and the seventh rib. Asymmetric presentation occurs, and the extent of deformation may vary from slight to serious. Exact numbers about prevalence are difficult to obtain, as the deformation is often not noted or-when noted-is not mentioned in the medical reports. Pectus excavatum is found in Europe in at least one in every 1000 births, mainly in men (70-85%) and often within the same families (35-45%). A correlation is mentioned between pectus exca...
