Myoglobinuria in two patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy after treatment with zoledronate: a case-report and call for caution.

Anton Ivanyuk, Nuria García Segarra, Thierry Buclin, Andrea Klein, David Jacquier, Christopher J Newman & Clemens Florian Blötzer
Rhabdomyolysis with myoglobinuria is a recognized complication of dystrophinopathies. It can be triggered by infections, exercise or volatile anesthetics. To our knowledge, it has never been reported in boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) after the administration of bisphosphonates. We report two patients with DMD who presented an apparent transient rhabdomyolysis with myoglobinuria after zoledronate administration. Possible mechanisms could involve hypophosphatemia, a known dose-dependent side effect of bisphosphonates, and/or direct myotoxicity of biphosphonates. Physicians and...

Antipsychotic drugs for patients with schizophrenia and predominant or prominent negative symptoms: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Marc Krause, Yikang Zhu, Maximilian Huhn, Johannes Schneider-Thoma, Irene Bighelli, Adriani Nikolakopoulou & Stefan Leucht
BACKGROUND Negative symptoms are the core of schizophrenia, but whether antipsychotics are efficacious for their treatment is unclear. Moreover, there is debate whether patients in relevant trials should have predominant negative symptoms or whether prominent negative symptoms are also acceptable. METHODS We systematically reviewed randomised, blinded antipsychotic drug trials in patients with schizophrenia and either predominant or prominent negative symptoms (last search Dec 12, 2017). Separate pairwise meta-analyses were conducted in these two populations. The...

Janosch Häberli, Laurenz Jaberg, Kathrin S Bieri, Stefan Eggli & Philipp Henle
BACKGROUND The goal of this study was to perform an in-depth analysis of the frequency and cause of secondary interventions subsequent to primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair with dynamic intraligamentary stabilization (DIS). METHODS Between July 2009 and June 2014, 455 patients underwent DIS treatment. The minimum follow-up was 21months (mean 28months, range 21-64months). RESULTS A total of 215 (48.2%) reinterventions were performed in 190 (42.6%) patients. One-hundred and seventy-six (39.4%) were non-revision reinterventions, and...

Phytoestrogen supplementation and body composition in postmenopausal women: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

Marija Glisic, Natyra Kastrati, Juna Musa, Jelena Milic, Eralda Asllanaj, Eliana Portilla Fernandez, Jana Nano, Carolina Ochoa Rosales, Masoud Amiri, Bledar Kraja, Arjola Bano, Wichor M Bramer, Anton J M Roks, A H Jan Danser, Oscar H Franco & Taulant Muka
Phytoestrogen-based medications are commonly used by menopausal women, and especially by obese postmenopausal women, to relieve menopausal symptoms. Substitution of animal with soy protein is often used in weight loss regimens, yet the effect of phytoestrogens, the main constituent of soy foods, on body composition is not completely understood. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to investigate the associations between phytoestrogen supplementation and body weight and the main parameters of body composition in postmenopausal...

BACKGROUND Randomised controlled trials have provided conflicting results regarding procedural and clinical outcomes of thrombus aspiration combined with percutaneous coronary intervention, when compared with primary percutaneous coronary intervention alone in patients with acute coronary syndromes. METHODS Acute coronary syndrome patients referred for coronary angiography to four Swiss university hospitals between 2009 and 2012 were enrolled in the SPUM-ACS cohort. At the discretion of the interventional cardiologist, patients underwent thrombus aspiration with percutaneous coronary intervention or...

Sirolimus Treatment of an Infant With Intrathoracic Kaposiform Hemangioendothelioma Complicated by Life-threatening Pleural and Pericardial Effusions.

Lucy Duan, Samuele Renzi, Danielle Weidman, Nicolas Waespe, Rose Chami, David Manson, Michaela Cada & Manuel Carcao
Kaposiform hemangioendothelioma (KHE) is a rare infiltrative vascular tumor that may be associated with Kasabach-Merritt Phenomenon (KMP), which is a consumptive coagulopathy with potentially life-threatening thrombocytopenia. Management of KHE and KMP is challenging, and currently, there are no standardized validated treatment protocols. Mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitors have been shown to be effective in the treatment of KHE. We describe a term male who presented as a diagnostic dilemma with life-threatening pleural and pericardial effusions...

Ticagrelor plus aspirin for 1 month, followed by ticagrelor monotherapy for 23 months vs aspirin plus clopidogrel or ticagrelor for 12 months, followed by aspirin monotherapy for 12 months after implantation of a drug-eluting stent: a multicentre, open-label, randomised superiority trial.

Pascal Vranckx, Marco Valgimigli, Peter Jüni, Christian Hamm, Philippe Gabriel Steg, Dik Heg, Gerrit Anne Van Es, Eugene P McFadden, Yoshinobu Onuma, Cokky Van Meijeren, Ply Chichareon, Edouard Benit, Helge Möllmann, Luc Janssens, Maurizio Ferrario, Aris Moschovitis, Aleksander Zurakowski, Marcello Dominici, Robert Jan Van Geuns, Kurt Huber, Ton Slagboom, Patrick W Serruys, Stephan Windecker & GLOBAL LEADERS Investigators
BACKGROUND We hypothesised that ticagrelor, in combination with aspirin for 1 month, followed by ticagrelor alone, improves outcomes after percutaneous coronary intervention compared with standard antiplatelet regimens. METHODS GLOBAL LEADERS was a randomised, open-label superiority trial at 130 sites in 18 countries. Patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention with a biolimus A9-eluting stent for stable coronary artery disease or acute coronary syndromes were randomly assigned (1:1) to 75-100 mg aspirin daily plus 90 mg ticagrelor twice...

Micro-scale fluorescence in situ hybridization

Deborah Huber
In this thesis, we aimed to leverage some of the unique hydrodynamic properties of fluidics to make fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) assays more efficient, and to elucidate the underlying physical mechanisms surrounding this important class of cytogenetic techniques. Hydrodynamic phenomena are ubiquitous in living organisms and can be used to manipulate cells or emulate physiological microenvironments experienced in vivo. Hydrodynamic effects influence multiple cellular properties and processes, including cell morphology, intracellular processes, cell-cell signalling...

In vivo dynamic characterization of heat shock response in Caenorhabditis elegans using high-throughput microfluidic systems and mathematical modelling

Nadia Sarait Vertti Quintero
Caenorhabditis elegans is one of the most important and widely studied model organism in biological sciences. The high degree of genetic homology of this nematode with more complex organisms, including humans, makes it a primary model for studying fundamental, evolutionarily conserved processes in life, observable in a direct and simple manner. Particularly, the use of fluorescent protein reporters has enabled the direct localization and quantification of protein expression in a non-invasive manner at the cellular,...

Existence of psychological inertia in mode shift behavior: New evidence from a comparison study

Jieyu Fan, Kun Gao, Kay W. Axhausen & Lijun Sun
This paper conducted a comparison study of mode shift behavior based on computer-aided SP surveys trying to distinguish the differences in conceptions of preference and inertia. The results show that same respondents have remarkably different choice behavior in mode shift context and another mode choice scenarios. The results indicate that there exists obvious inertia in mode shift from car to public transit besides preference for car. The inertia in mode shift should be modeled as...
