CONCLUSIONS: Respiratory stepwise management can effectively improve the resuscitation effect of septic shock patients with ALI, improve cardiopulmonary function, blood gas index and the treatment efficiency, effectively reduce the incidence of iatrogenic trauma and complications.
CONCLUSION: Rhinocladiella mackenziei brain abscess is a devastating infection with significant mortality. This condition should be suspected in patients with brain abscess from high endemic areas.
Chagas disease is a neglected tropical disease caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi. Currently, only nitroheterocyclic nifurtimox (NFX) and benznidazole (BNZ) are available for the treatment of Chagas disease, with limitations such as variable efficacy, long treatment regimens and toxicity. Different strategies have been used to discover new active molecules for the treatment of Chagas disease. Target-based and phenotypic screening led to thousands of compounds with anti-T. cruzi activity,…
CONCLUSIONS: CFS, MV, CRRT, and palliative care are independent risk factors of 180-day mortality in elderly patients with sepsis. We established ESS based on these risk factors. The ESS model has good discrimination and can be used as a reference and assessment tool for prediction and treatment guidance in elderly patients with sepsis.
CONCLUSION: The SNPs at PIK3CA rs9838117 and ERBB2 rs1058808 loci were associated with the risk of EOC.
Tuberculosis (TB) remains a major threat worldwide while central nervous system TB (CNS-TB) is one of the most severe forms of extrapulmonary TB. CNS-TB develops as a secondary infection during the hematogenous spread of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) from the lungs to the CNS. Factors influencing the dissemination of the bacilli to the CNS have not been studied extensively. This study evaluated the transmigration ability through the alveolar epithelium and adhesion and invasion…
CONCLUSIONS: ESBL producers are no longer rare among DEC and the overall resistance to various antibiotics is increasing. The data predict decreasing efficacy of antibiotic treatment, threatening its benefits, for disadvantages still prevail when efficacy is lost.
CONCLUSION: Based on the findings, the disruption of GC affected efflux activity and the synthesis of ergosterol and chitin. The present study for the first time revealed that metabolic fitness was associated with functional drug efflux, ergosterol and chitin biosynthesis and validated GC as an antifungal target. However, further studies are needed to comprehend and exploit this therapeutic opportunity.
CONCLUSION: The micelle-mediated co-delivery of doxorubicin and miR-519c provided a promising strategy to obtain ideal anti-cancer efficacy through the active targeting function and the reversion of MDR.
CONCLUSIONS: Some characteristics of patients and healthcare providers influence treatment success in MDR-TB cases. Physicians’ and nurses’ knowledge about MDR-TB must be improved, and follow-up of MDR-TB patients who are living with HIV and of those affiliated with the subsidized health insurance scheme in Colombia must be strengthened, as these patients have a lower likelihood of a successful treatment outcome.
