Polymorphisms Associated with Resistance and Cross-Resistance to Aminoglycosides and Capreomycin in Mycobacterium tuberculosis Isolates from South Korean Patients with Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis
TLDR
Molecular DST offers insight into mechanisms of resistance and cross-resistance among these agents and suggests that the development of rapid molecular tests to distinguish polymorphisms would significantly enhance clinical utility of this important class of second-line antituberculosis drugs.
Use of tumor necrosis factor α inhibitors in hepatitis B surface antigen-positive patients: a literature review and potential mechanisms of action
TLDR
In patients with a positive HBsAg prior to starting a TNF-α inhibitor, infliximab has the most reported cases associated with HBV reactivation, and clinicians prescribing T NF-α inhibitors toHBsAg-positive patients should consider prophylactic antiviral therapy and close monitoring for any clinical or serological evidence of hepatitis.
Sternocostoclavicular Hyperostosis: A Review
  • M. Carroll
  • Medicine
    Therapeutic advances in musculoskeletal disease
  • 7 March 2011
TLDR
Greater awareness of SCCH is needed to prevent the irreversible physical and psychological impairments associated with the disease.
A Case of Relapsing Kikuchi-Fujimoto Disease
TLDR
A previously healthy 26-year-old female that presented with fever and cervical lymphadenopathy was diagnosed with KFD histopathologically by lymph node biopsy, and her case is a severe case of KFD that despite treatment with multiple courses of corticosteroids and an immune modulating agent, relapsed.
The impact of biologic response modifiers on hepatitis B virus infection
  • M. Carroll
  • Medicine, Biology
    Expert opinion on biological therapy
  • 10 March 2011
TLDR
The role of the various cytokines and cluster of differentiation molecules in controlling HBVinfection and the currently known effect that the biologic response modifiers have on viral control by the host immune response are addressed.
Colonic ulceration associated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
TLDR
NSAID-induced cecal ulcers can have a variety of presentations to the general surgeon, are likely to be misdiagnosed preoperatively, but may be recognized based on characteristic gross features evident by radiography and colonoscopy, along with a careful history.
Molecular and Functional Characteristics of a Protective Human Monoclonal Antibody to Serotype 8 Streptococcus pneumoniae Capsular Polysaccharide
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a serotype-specific human IgM with certain structural and functional characteristics was protective in mice lacking a functional classical complement pathway and show that alternative complement pathway activation is an important determinant of pneumococcal protection.
Tocilizumab in the treatment of myocardial infarction
  • M. Carroll
  • Medicine, Biology
    Modern rheumatology
  • 30 January 2018
TLDR
A review focuses on the role of IL-6 and its receptor in myocardial inflammation and association with adverse clinical outcomes and makes recommendations for future clinical trial development in what hopefully will be a promising application of TCZ for a serious nonrheumatologic condition.
The treatment of postanaesthetic shivering: a double blind comparison between alfentanil and pethidine
TLDR
The high incidence of reshivering indicates that alfentanil is unlikely to supercede pethidine in the treatment of PAS, but its initial success rate implies that pethazine's anti‐shivering effect is likely to be mediated via kappa‐opioid receptors.
