Toll-like receptor activation as a biomarker in traumatically injured patients
(Journal of Surgical Research, 2018-11-01)
© 2018 Elsevier Inc. Background: Surgical insult and trauma have been shown to cause dysregulation of the immune and inflammatory responses. Interaction of damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) with toll-like receptors ...
Functional Relevance of Improbable Antibody Mutations for HIV Broadly Neutralizing Antibody Development.
(Cell host & microbe, 2018-06)
HIV-1 broadly neutralizing antibodies (bnAbs) require high levels of activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID)-catalyzed somatic mutations for optimal neutralization potency. Probable mutations occur at sites of frequent ...
American Society for Enhanced Recovery and Perioperative Quality Initiative Joint Consensus Statement on Postoperative Gastrointestinal Dysfunction Within an Enhanced Recovery Pathway for Elective Colorectal Surgery.
(Anesthesia and analgesia, 2018-06)
The primary driver of length of stay after bowel surgery, particularly colorectal surgery, is the time to return of gastrointestinal (GI) function. Traditionally, delayed GI recovery was thought to be a routine and unavoidable ...
A prospective comparison of a noninvasive cardiac output monitor versus esophageal doppler monitor for goal-directed fluid therapy in colorectal surgery patients
(Anesthesia and Analgesia, 2014-01-01)
Copyright © 2014 International Anesthesia Research Society. BACKGROUND: Goal-directed fluid therapy (GDFT) is associated with improved outcomes after surgery. The esophageal Doppler monitor (EDM) is widely used, but has ...
Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) for gastrointestinal surgery, part 2: consensus statement for anaesthesia practice.
(Acta anaesthesiologica Scandinavica, 2016-03)
The present interdisciplinary consensus review proposes clinical considerations and recommendations for anaesthetic practice in patients undergoing gastrointestinal surgery with an Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) ...
American Society for Enhanced Recovery and Perioperative Quality Initiative Joint Consensus Statement on Patient-Reported Outcomes in an Enhanced Recovery Pathway.
(Anesthesia and analgesia, 2018-06)
Patient-reported outcomes (PROs) are measures of health status that come directly from the patient. PROs are an underutilized tool in the perioperative setting. Enhanced recovery pathways (ERPs) have primarily focused on ...
Investigating pathogen burden in relation to a cumulative deficits index in a representative sample of US adults.
(Epidemiology and infection, 2018-06-14)
Pathogen burden is a construct developed to assess the cumulative effects of multiple, persistent pathogens on morbidity and mortality. Despite the likely biological wear and tear on multiple body systems caused by persistent ...
Acute Myeloid Leukemia After Olaparib Treatment in Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer.
(Clinical genitourinary cancer, 2017-12)
Differences between completely physically inactive and low active older men and their response to an exercise intervention: the Veterans LIFE study.
(Healthy aging research, 2015-01)
Physical activity interventions typically do not report behavioral changes in activity sub-groups. The aim of this study was to compare baseline differences and changes in physical activity between truly physically inactive ...
Utility of Autopsy among Pediatric Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Recipients: One Last Chance to Learn?
(Biology of blood and marrow transplantation : journal of the American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation, 2018-06-09)
Autopsy may confirm clinical diagnoses or identify conditions that were not suspected prior to a patient's death. Previous studies evaluating the utility of autopsy in hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients ...
