Eosinophilia After Exposure to Darbepoetin alfa: A Case Report

Darbepoetin alfa stimulates erythropoiesis in manner similar to re- combinant human erythropoietin (rEPO). It differs from rEPO as there are two additional oligosaccharide chains in darbepoetin alfa.1 These two chains increase the number of sialic acid residues within the molecule, thereby enhancing its half-life three-fold compared to rEPO.1 U.S. Food and Drug Administration label for Darbepoetin alfa indicates that allergic rash and erythema can occurred in 5% of patients taking darbepoetin alfa,2 which may be due to the immuno- genic nature of darbepoetin alfa owing to different amino acid and oligosaccharide chain sequences (compared to endogenous EPO and rEPO).

A New Strategy to Build Culture of Compassion in Nursing Practice

Values are generally defined as beliefs or principles that influence behaviour. Following several reports that revealed poor care quality with an apparent lack of compassion, England's Department of Health (DH) introduced the ‘6Cs’ as values for practice within a new nursing strategy. In 2016, the 6Cs were included in the new framework for nursing (1). This article sets out the background to the 6Cs, considers other sets of values relevant to nursing practice and theories of caring, and then explores the meaning of the DH’s 6Cs in detail.

CIUs as a Measure of Communicative Performance in a Persian Speaker with Anomic Aphasia

Aphasia is an acquired neurological language disorder, primarily due to brain injury caused by stroke, which affects language comprehen- sion and production. Anomia is a type of aphasia, which according to American Hearing and Speech Association (ASHA) is defined as a mild form of aphasia with word-finding difficulty being the main characteristic. Individuals with anomic aphasia have relatively pre- served speech fluency, repetition, comprehension, and grammatical speech but sometimes have difficulty with word retrieval (Dronkers & Baldo, 2010)

Incidental Finding of Lumbar Rib

An incidental finding of “thirteenth” or “lumbar” rib was discovered upon radiological imaging. An oblique radiograph shows the costo- vertebral articulation (Figure 1., white arrow) between the first lumbar vertebra and the rib. Axial CT also demonstrates the articulation as well (Figure 2., white arrow). Three-dimensional volume rendered CT provides a clear view of the bony architecture of the spine (Figures 3 and 4).

Pyrimidine Metabolism-related gene RRM2 as a novel biomarker for Prognosis and immu- notherapy in LUAD

Lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD), which accounts for 40% of lung can- cers, is usually diagnosed at an advanced stage and has a low aver- age 5-year survival rate (about 20%) [1] [2] [3]. To promote tumor growth, tumor cells initiate a unique metabolic program [4] [5]. This is not only conducive to the unlimited proliferation of tumor cells, but also shapes a unique immune microenvironment, affecting the com- position and biological functions of immune cells in the microenvi- ronment [6] [7].

Total Knee Arthroplasty: Socioeconomic Disparities of Post-Operative Complications

A 2018 American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons report predicts that TKA rates will increase by 189% in 2030 and by 382% in 2060.2 Current projections are that by 2030, there will be 935,000 primary TKAs annually.1 Healthcare disparities continue to be a concern for total knee arthroplasties (TKAs), and given the anticipated increase of TKAs, these disparities need to be addressed. Elderly patients un- dergoing TKA, such as the Medicare beneficiaries analyzed in this study, have an increased perioperative risk and require close interdis- ciplinary cooperation for success. For these patients, post-operative function depends significantly upon psychosocial factors in addition to a patient’s preoperative health status.

PREVALENCEOF SACROILIAC JOINT DYSFUNCTION IN PATIENTS WITH LUMBAR DISC HER- NIATION

In individuals with low back pain, sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is the most common pain causing joint (1). SIJ is developed by the junction be- tween iliac bone and sacral bone. Association between two bones, muscles and ligaments provide the stability to the joint. This joint is the largest joint of body with a diameter of 17.5 cm2 (2). Low back pain approximately affects 80% of the population. It is extremely com- mon and thus continues to affect millions of people every year. It is a difficult condition to treat effectively and so it causes a huge financial burden on the patients as well as the hospitals.

Evaluation of the Relationship between the Adherence to the Treatments of Individuals with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and their Attitudes Towards Complementary and Alternative Medicine in the COVID-19 Pandemic

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is one of the im- portant causes of morbidity and mortality among chronic diseases. Periods of exacerbation seen during the disease process can cause progression of the disease, increase in health expenditures and mor- tality (1). The leading cause of COPD exacerbations is the occurrence of tracheobronchial infections. Viral agents are shown as the source of tracheobronchial infections (2). All these data; It predicts that in- dividuals with COPD may be adversely affected by the new type of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Monogenic systemic lupus erythematosus associated with DNASE1 gene mutation: a case report and literature review

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in children is an autoimmune disease that can involve multiple systems, and its pathogenesis is genetically related, with single mutations causing the disease being extremely rare [1]. No cases of SLE associated with mutations in the deoxyribonuclease 1 (DNASE1) gene have been reported in China, and only four cases have been reported abroad [2-3]. One case of monogenic SLE in a young child associated with DNASE1 mutation was diagnosed in our hospital through clinical features, autoantibody examination and genetic testing, and the diagnosis and treatment of this case are reported below.

Perspectives of Jaundice and Implications

Jaundice involves yellowing of the skin, whites of the eyes, and body fluids. It is as a result of high level of bilirubin in the blood [1]. The bilirubin simply is a yellow pigment that is generated from haem me- tabolism, mainly from haemoglobin in red blood cells (RBCs). This bilirubin is moved by the blood to the liver, where it is linked with a sugar by an enzyme through conjugation so that it can be excreted in bile, which later reach the small intestine. It has been reported that jaundice may result from a problem at any point in the pathway es- pecially increased breakdown of RBC, liver dysfunction or problems with excretion of bile [2].

To determine sensitivity of diffusion weighted imaging for diagnosis of hepatocellular car- cinoma, keeping the dynamic post contrast MRI as gold standard.

There is increasing incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) worldwide, being the fifth commonest cancer and holds being the sec- ond commonest reason of cancer death [1]. It is alarmingly on rise in Pakistan [2, 3]. Multiple risk factors for HCC have been documented worldwide, a few include alcohol, hepatitis B and C viral infection and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). With current disease load it is crucial to accurately diagnose HCC at the early stage for reduc- ing the morbidity and mortality. Early diagnosis is the rate limiting step in the disease burden.
