Marburg's Variant of Multiple Sclerosis with Extensive Brain Lesions: An Autopsy Case Report

Ayumi Ludwig, Jaclyn Duvall, Jo Elle Peterson and Ryan Hakimi

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: April 10, 2015

Marburg's variant of multiple sclerosis (MS) is a malignant and rapidly progressive form of MS that typically leads to deterioration or death within weeks to months. Here we present a case involving a 25-year-old woman who presented with fluctuating mild encephalopathy of one-week duration who progressed to coma and ultimately died on day seven after being admitted to our university based neurosci...

Atypical Antipsychotic Drugs in Dual Diagnosis Patients: A Review

Marta Marin-Mayor, Jorge Lopez-Alvarez, Francisco Lopez-Munoz, Francisco AriasHorcajadas and Gabriel Rubio

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: March 30, 2015

Dual Diagnosis (DD), defined as the co-occurrence of a Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and a Severe Mental Illness (SMI), is associated with several negative outcomes. Typical antipsychotics (TAP) are not of great value for patients with DD as they are associated with poorer responses and can worsen SUD. Atypical antipsychotics (AAP) offer several advantages compared to TAP....

Osteoimmunological Aspects on Inflammation and Bone Metabolism

Uwe Lange, Gabriel Dischereit, Elena Neumann, Klaus Frommer, Ingo H. Tarner and Ulf Muller-Ladner Kerckhoff-Klinik

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: April 09, 2015

Bone remodelling is characterized by a balance between bone resorption and bone formation. The osteoblasts are responsible for bone synthesis and the osteoclasts for bone resorption. A finely adjusted interaction between molecular mechanisms results, via cytokines, hormones and growth factors, in homeostasis of bone metabolism....

Web-Based Quality of Life Questionnaire Followed by Paper-Based Questionnaire for the Non-Responders: Daily Practice in Patients with Prostate Cancer

Tillier CN, van Stam MA, de Blok W, van Muilekom HVM, Bloos-van der Hulst J and van der Poel HG

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: April 13, 2015

Patient-related outcome measures (PROMS) play an increasingly important role in the planning and evaluation of medical care. A high response rate is crucial to get a good view of the patient population. Quality of life questionnaires in oncology are important in order to evaluate the impact of the disease or the treatment of cancer patients and guide treatment decisions....

A Test for Progressive Myopia and the Role of Latent Accommodation in its Development

Kodikullam V Avudainayagam, Chitralekha S Avudainayagam and Nicholas H Nguyen

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: April 10, 2015

Purpose: To determine whether those myopes who respond like hyperopes when tested with a multivergence hologram are progressive myopes and to investigate the role of latent accommodation in the development of progressive myopia. Methods: Recently, we introduced a specially designed hologram to test the vision of spectacle corrected subjects. A subject viewing through this hologram would see the re...

Long-Term Function, Pain and Medication Use Outcomes of Radiofrequency Ablation for Lumbar Facet Syndrome

Zachary L. McCormick, Benjamin Marshall, Jeremy Walker, Robert McCarthy and David R. Walega

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: April 06, 2015

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of the medial branch nerves for facet-mediated low back pain demonstrates clinical benefit for 6-12 months and possibly up to 2 years. This study investigated function, pain, and medication use outcomes of RFA for lumbar facet syndrome in a cohort with long-term follow-up....

Prevalence of Risk Factors for Cardiovascular Disease and Type II Diabetes in Females within the Slum Nuevo Jerusalen, Peru

Sudesh S. Raju and Vinayak Kumar

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 30, 2015

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type II diabetes (T2D) are the leading causes of death worldwide, including those within developing countries. Few studies have measured the prevalence of risk factors for CVD and T2D within Latin America and even fewer have focused on socioeconomically depressed populations within Peru....

Collision Tumor: Dermoid Cysts and Mucinous Cystadenoma in the Same Ovary and a Review of the Literature

Mehmet Suhha Bostanci, Ozge Kizilkale Yildirim, Gazi Yildirim, Murat Bakacak, Isin Dogan Ekinci, Sevgi Bilgen and Rukset Attar

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 31, 2015

Collision tumor is defined as the coexistence of two adjacent, but histologically distinct tumors without histological admixture in the same tissue or organ. Collision tumors involving ovaries are extremely rare. The coexistence of a mucinous cystadenoma with a dermoid cyst is infrequently reported. However, the most common histological combination of collision tumor in the ovary is the coexistenc...

Effect of Diabetes Mellitus on Metabolic Biomarker Levels in Patients with End Stage Renal Disease or Undergoing Total Joint Arthroplasty

J. Saluk, Bansal V, Banos A, Hopkinson W, Rees H, Syed D, Hoppensteadt D, Abro S and Iqbal O and Fareed J

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: March 28, 2015

Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a proven risk factor for diseases such as end stage renal disease (ESRD) and osteoarthritis (OA). Thus, it is not unreasonable to assume that some of the ESRD/ OA pathogenesis, namely inflammation and metabolic dysfunction, could be attributed to DM as a comorbitity. This study aims to investigate DM's effect on metabolic biomarker levels in patients with ESRD or undergoi...

Hybrid Arc Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiation Therapy for Pelvic Relapse of Gynecologic Malignancies

Charles A Kunos, Howard Shaffer and Jeffrey M Fabien

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: March 30, 2015

Relapsed gynecologic cancers are difficult to control in the pelvis, especially when surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments have already been administered. For this clinical scenario, stereotactic body radiation therapy has emerged as a meaningful treatment strategy. The new Vero stereotactic body radiation therapy system uses coplanar and noncoplanar radiation treatment beams with submill...
