Intensive nutritional intervention with vitamin D and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) appears to have favourable effects in prostate cancer patients managed with active surveillance, as shown in a study.
The physical and chemical stability of cytarabine diluted in 0.9% NaCl in polypropylene syringes is at its highest at 2–8 °C, a recent study in Tunisia has found. The 1-mg/mL solution demonstrates better stability at 25 °C relative to those at higher concentrations (5 and 10 mg/mL).
Data from food challenge studies can help regulators and business owners establish evidence-based allergen risk management systems, such as precautionary labelling of products, in order to protect their consumers, a recent study has found.
Treatment with COVID-19 convalescent plasma (CCP) leads to a rapid increase in antibodies and is well tolerated in paediatric patients but does not seem to interfere with immune responses measured at 21 days, results of a recent study have shown.
Prehospital antibiotic therapy (PH-ABT) leads to a marked decrease in the overall rate of bacterial pathogen detection by culture, but not by polymerase chain reaction, in children with parapneumonic pleural effusion (PPE) and pleural empyema (PE), a study has found. PH-ABT also results in a reduced rate of infectious complications but does not have an impact on the overall disease duration.
