  • Propylthiouracil-induced agranulocytosis as a rare complication of antithyroid drugs in a patient with Graves' disease. [Case Reports]
    Rev Assoc Med Bras (1992) 2019; 65(6):755-760Rabelo PN, Rabelo PN, … Reis MAL
  • CONCLUSIONS: We describe here the case of a young male patient with GD. For the treatment of hyperthyroidism, thioamides are effective options. Agranulocytosis induced by ATDs is a rare complication defined as the occurrence of a granulocyte count <500/mm3 after the use of ATDs. PTU was suspended, and filgrastim and antibiotics were prescribed. Radioiodine (RAI) or surgery are therapeutic alternatives. Due to problems with ATD use, a total thyroidectomy was proposed. The preoperative preparation was performed with beta-blocker, glucocorticoid, lithium carbonate, and Lugol solution. Cholestyramine is also an option for controlling hyperthyroidism. TT was performed without postoperative complications.Thionamide-induced agranulocytosis is a rare complication. With a contraindication to ATDs, RAI and surgery are definitive therapeutic options in GD. Beta-blockers, glucocorticoids, lithium carbonate, iodine, and cholestyramine may be an adjunctive therapy for hyperthyroidism.
  • Iodine-Enhanced Micro-CT Imaging of Soft Tissue on the Example of Peripheral Nerve Regeneration. [Journal Article]
    Contrast Media Mol Imaging 2019; 2019:7483745Heimel P, Swiadek NV, … Hercher D
  • Microcomputed tomography (μCT) is widely used for the study of mineralized tissues, but a similar use for soft tissues is hindered by their low X-ray attenuation. This limitation can be overcome by the recent development of different staining techniques. Staining with Lugol's solution, a mixture of one part iodine and two parts potassium iodide in water, stands out among these techniques for its …
  • Massive single visit cervical pre-cancer and cancer screening in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. [Journal Article]
    BMC Womens Health 2019; 19(1):43Paluku JL, Carter TE, … Bartels SA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Forty-eight women with suspicious pre-cancerous or cancerous lesions were successfully identified using the "screen and treat" approach in eastern DRC, suggesting that this approach is feasible for reducing cervical cancer morbidity and mortality. However, community awareness would be necessary, providers would have to be properly trained, referral and follow up mechanisms would have to be put in place, and equipment / supplies would have to be secured if the "screen and treat" approach is to be successful on a wider scale. There is ongoing need for HPV vaccination in DRC as a primary prevention strategy against cervical cancer.
  • Optimization of Pulmonary Vasculature Tridimensional Phenotyping in The Rat Fetus. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep 2019; 9(1):1244Aydin E, Levy B, … Peiro JL
  • Comparative, functional, developmental, and some morphological studies on animal anatomy require accurate visualization of three-dimensional structures. Nowadays, several widely applicable methods exist for non-destructive whole-mount imaging of animal tissues. The purpose of this study was to optimize specimen preparation and develop a method for quantitative analysis of the total pulmonary vasc…
