Food stress, but not experimental exposure to mercury, affects songbird preen oil composition
Food stress, but not experimental exposure to mercury, affects songbird preen oil composition: AbstractMercury is a global pollutant and potent neurotoxic metal. Its most toxic and bioavailable form, methylmercury, can have both lethal and sublethal effects on wildlife. In birds, methylmercury exposure can disrupt behavior, hormones, the neuroendocrine system, and feather integrity. Lipid-rich tissues and secretions may be particularly susceptible to disruption by lipophilic contaminants such as...

Carriers of loss-of-function mutations in the filaggrin (LoF FLG) gene have less natural moisturising factor (NMF) in their stratum corneum (SC) and an increased risk of atopic dermatitis (AD). NMF can be measured non-invasively by Raman spectroscopy. The use of Raman-derived NMF at birth to screen for FLG genotype could inform targeted AD prevention, but values in neonatal populations are largely unexplored.

Using Baseline and Peak Serum Tryptase Levels to Diagnose Anaphylaxis: a Review
Using Baseline and Peak Serum Tryptase Levels to Diagnose Anaphylaxis: a Review: AbstractThe diagnosis of anaphylaxis relies on a suggestive clinical history after exposure to a potential triggering factor. Serum tryptase concentrations increase on degranulation of mast cells and therefore serum tryptase levels are measured to diagnose anaphylaxis. There is no standardized method for assessing total serum mast cell tryptase (MCT) in anaphylaxis. The Working Conference in 2010 proposed a consensus...

Hypereosinophilia with Angioimmunoblastic T cell Lymphoma 1: A 58-year-old woman was evaluated for persistent eosinophilia. She had joint pain with effusions for 14 years and was treated for presumptive seronegative rheumatoid arthritis with prednisone and multiple disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs with minimal improvement (timeline in Figure 1). For 2.5 years prior to evaluation, she developed a persistent pruritic rash, chronic cough, and a 20 pound weight loss. She had no atopic history and...

Evaluating Drug Fever to Beta Lactam Antibiotics
Evaluating Drug Fever to Beta Lactam Antibiotics: Drug fever is a rare and frequently overlooked reaction to medications. Drug fever is often missed, as fever is commonly miscategorized as infectious, and drug fever is a diagnosis of exclusion. Drug fevers typically occur within days to weeks after starting the culprit medication and cease after stopping the medication.1 Patients are otherwise well with no other symptoms. Many different medications have been implicated in drug fever.1-5 The true...
