The concept of peri-operative medicine to prevent major adverse events and improve outcome in surgical patients: A narrative reviewPeri-operative Medicine is the patient-centred and value-based multidisciplinary peri-operative care of surgical patients. Peri-operative stress, that is the collective response to stimuli occurring before, during and after surgery, is, together with pre-existing comorbidities, the pathophysiological basis of major adverse events. The ultimate goal of Peri-operative Medicine...

Lithium-Induced Neurotoxicity: A Case StudyBACKGROUND In patients presenting with neurological deficits, identifying the cause can be challenging. METHODS This case study discusses a condition that is not commonly seen. DISCUSSION Although lithium toxicity syndrome is not as familiar as other causes of neurological issues, this should be considered for any patient who presents with unexplained neurological deficits and a history of taking this medication. CONCLUSION If toxicity is not recognized...

Effects of mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists in proteinuric kidney disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trialsBackground: Reductions in albuminuria of more than 30% are considered a strong marker of delay of chronic kidney disease (CKD) progression. Single renin–angiotensin system (RAS) blockade represents the cornerstone of CKD treatment. However, as CKD progression still occurs, other nephroprotective options were explored; mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists...

Anaerobic resistance: should we be worried?Purpose of review Anaerobic bacteria are implicated in a broad range of infections and can cause significant morbidity and mortality. As such, development of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) increases the risk of worse clinical outcomes and death. Recent findings Anaerobe AMR is highly variable according to region and species included in the survey. The overall trend is to increasing resistance, particularly in Europe and Asia, and in the Bacteroides fragilis...

Endophenotypes of executive functions in obsessive compulsive disorder? A meta-analysis in unaffected relativesEndophenotypes are mediator traits between genetic influences and clinical phenotypes. Meta-analyses have consistently shown modest impairments of executive functioning in obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) patients compared to healthy controls. Similar deficits have also been reported in unaffected relatives of OCD patients, but have not been quantified. We conducted the first meta-analysis...

When rubber meets the road: how innate features of adaptive immune cells play critical roles in transplant alloimmunityPurpose of review Studies on adaptive cells have largely focused on features that are specific to adaptive immunity. However, adaptive cells utilize innate cell features to modulate their responses, and this area of T and B-cell biology is understudied. This review will highlight recent work done to understand how innate features of adaptive immune cells modulate alloimmunity. Recent...
