BACKGROUND Acute hemorrhagic leukoencephalopathy (AHLE) is a rare condition associated with H1N1. In this condition the infection triggers an autoimmune response which results in perivascular demyelination and hemorrhage in the brain parenchyma. METHODS We report a case of a patient who developed brain edema and herniation as a result of AHLE. RESULTS A(More)
The mechanisms involved in lung cancer (LC) progression are poorly understood making discovery of successful therapies difficult. Adaptor proteins play a crucial role in cancer as they link cell surface receptors to specific intracellular pathways. Intersectin-1s (ITSN-1s) is an important multidomain adaptor protein implicated in the pathophysiology of(More)
Murine models of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) that recapitulate the plexiform and obliterative arteriopathy seen in PAH patients and help in defining the molecular mechanisms involved are missing. Herein, we investigated whether intersectin-1s (ITSN) deficiency and prolonged lung expression of an ITSN fragment with endothelial cell (EC)(More)
Intersectin-1s (ITSN-1s), a multidomain adaptor protein, plays a vital role in endocytosis, cytoskeleton rearrangement and cell signaling. Recent studies have demonstrated that deficiency of ITSN-1s is a crucial early event in pulmonary pathogenesis. In lung cancer, ITSN-1s deficiency impairs Eps8 ubiquitination and favors Eps8-mSos1 interaction which(More)
Several patient populations have been identified as high risk for extubation failure despite successful completion of a spontaneous breathing trial (SBT). Extubation failure and subsequent need for emergent re-intubation have been associated with increased morbidity and mortality. In this review, we discuss ways to optimize the value and performance of the(More)
BACKGROUND Source of infection is an independent predictor of sepsis-related mortality. To date, studies have failed to evaluate differences in septic patients based on the source of infection. METHODS Retrospective study of all patients with sepsis admitted to the ICU of a university hospital within a 12month time period. RESULTS Sepsis due to(More)
PURPOSE To report the characteristics and outcomes of patients with sepsis in the intensive care unit (ICU) with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and acute kidney injury (AKI) compared to patients with nonkidney injury (non-KI). METHODS Retrospective study of all patients with sepsis admitted to the ICU of a university hospital within a 12-month time(More)
