Value of Serum IgG4 in the Diagnosis of Autoimmune Pancreatitis and in Distinguishing it from Acute and Chronic Pancreatitis of Other Etiology

Xiaoqin Zhu/ M. Rabie Al-Turkmani/ Lokinendi V. Rao

Abstract Immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) is one of the most common clinical presentations of the IgG4-related disease and distinct from acute pancreatitis and chronic pancreatitis derived from other etiology. Elevated serum IgG4 concentration has been established as one of the diagnostic criteria for AIP. However, a subset of patients of AIP have normal serum IgG4. It is essential to establish the value of serum IgG4 level in identifying AIP patients in clinical (..)

Isolated Acrania in the Presence of Amniotic Band Syndrome

Lei Li/ Sandra Cerda/ David Kindelberger/ Jing Yang/ Carmen Sarita-Reyes

Abstract Acrania is an extremely rare congenital developmental anomaly. It is often confused with another disease entity, anencephaly. Even though these two developmental defects often occur simultaneously, they are believed to have different pathogenic mechanisms. We report the case of a 22-year-old woman with an unremarkable first trimester pregnancy who delivered a demised male fetus at 16 weeks gestation. External and microscopic examination of the fetus revealed normal development in all (..)

Overcoming Communication Barriers to Healthcare for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Patients

Chieh Li/ Noora Abdulkerim/ Cara A. Jordan/ Christine Ga Eun Son

Abstract The growing diversity in the United States brings with it multiple cultures, languages, and communication styles. Effective communication between healthcare providers and patients is essential for quality healthcare. Barriers to communication contribute to health disparities among racial/cultural minority groups. In this article, we analyzed both verbal and nonverbal barriers to effective communication with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) patients, including issues with using interp(..)

Uterine Malignant Mixed Mullerian Tumor: Review of Recent Literature

Haiying Zhan/ Frank Chen/ Ying Huang

Abstract Uterine Malignant Mixed Mullerian Tumor (MMMT) is an uncommon neoplasm with aggressive clinical course. It shares similar etiology, clinical and pathologic features of high-grade endometrial carcinoma. As such, uterine MMMT has been recently regarded as high grade de-differentiated endometrial carcinoma. Histologically, uterine MMMT is composed of an admixture of malignant epithelial and mesenchymal components. Substantial immunohistochemical and molecular genetic evidence has suggest(..)

Compounded Topical Medications for Diseases of the Skin: A Long Tradition Still Relevant Today

Matthew F. Helm/ Joyce B. Farah/ Maria Carvalho/ Fuad S. Farah/ Ramsay S. Farah

Abstract Compounded medications remain an important component of the physicians’ armamentarium. As the volume of scientific information taught in medical school increases, the time devoted to teaching traditional treatments can at times become limited. This succinct manuscript will focus on introducing the reader to this therapeutic option and highlight some of the compounded treatments used in the management of skin diseases.

Metabolomics in Alcoholic Liver Disease

Shu-Jun Zhou/ Li-Juan Ma/ Jian-Bo Wan

Abstract Alcoholic liver disease (ALD) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide among the people with alcohol abuse worldwide. Diagnosis of ALD might be clinically challenging as there is no reliable diagnostic “biomarker” that predict and confirm patients at the risk of ALD. As a new promising “omics” in systems biology, metabolomics provides a useful tool for discovering novel molecular signature and understanding biochemical pathways to improve disease diagnosis, prognosis and (..)

A Survey of Epidemiological Studies and Risk Factors of ASD, with a Focus on China

Meng Wu/ Yiming Wu/ Li Yu/ Jun Liu/ Mei Zhang/ June Kong/ Bai-Lin Wu

Abstract Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a group of pervasive developmental disorders which usually first appear in childhood. ASD was considered rare in the past, however, it has become a relatively common disease with a dramatic increase of prevalence recently. For years, epidemiological studies for ASD were carried out in many countries and relevant methodologies for investigation have become comparably mature. By the contrary, only a few epidemiological studies for ASD have been complete(..)
