Analysis of human induced-pluripotential stem cells reveals a complex, multi-dimensional network of signaling defects that could help researchers better understand insulin resistance, according to a speaker. “We can now model human disease in a tissue culture dish by making what are known as induced-pluripotential stem cells,” C. Ronald Kahn, MD, Chief Academic Officer at the Joslin Diabetes Center and Mary K. Iacocca Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, said during a presentation at the virtual Cardiometabolic Health Congress. “These can be made from any cells in.

Though contending the care currently provided to patients is “poor,” a speaker at ASN Kidney Week said society is at a “uniquely positive sweet-spot” in which vascular access care, as well as kidney care as a whole, can be transformed. In his presentation, Prabir Roy-Chaudhury, MD, PhD, of the University of North Carolina Kidney Center, told the audience that patients presently receive low-quality care despite spending an estimated $5 billion per year on vascular access care. The outcomes achieved, according to Roy-Chaudhury, are “dismal,” with a 50% patency.

Women with invasive cervical cancer demonstrated increased risks for iatrogenic and noniatrogenic injuries during diagnostic workup, according to results of a study published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. Although the overall incidence of injury was rare, the increased rate of iatrogenic injuries — or those that are a consequence of medical intervention — and noniatrogenic injuries, which include accidents and self-harm, during the diagnostic workup of invasive cervical cancer underscore the burden of medical complications and the psychologic distress a women.

Laura M. Periman, MD, is a fellowship-trained cornea and refractive surgeon and ocular surface disease expert who is in love with the fast pace of discovery that the ocular surface demands. With her profound interest in dry eye disease acting as a catalyst, unraveling the complexities of this multifactorial disease, as well as bridging the gap among basic science, clinical practice and patient education, are deep passions. In March, just as most of Seattle was shuttering its doors because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Periman decided to open new doors in June 2020 as founder and director of dry eye.

A majority of virologically suppressed patients with HIV considered long-acting injectable ART to be acceptable, according to results from the CUSTOMIZE study presented during IDWeek. Prior research has shown that the regimen — a monthly injection of cabotegravir (ViiV Healthcare) and rilpivirine (Janssen Pharmaceuticals) — is noninferior to daily oral therapy. “The results show broad acceptance of this new delivery strategy for [antiretrovirals]. The main clinical outcome in my opinion is that patients like the option of injectable ART,” Blair Thedinger, MD, associate.

Telehealth services are expanding and providing an effective alternative for hospitals without access to infectious disease expertise, and they have improved patient no-show rates, according to data presented at IDWeek. In one study, researchers reported a more than 400% growth over 6 years in inpatient ID telehealth consults at a rural Pennsylvania hospital. According to a second study in New York state, patients reported that telehealth visits during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic were as satisfactory as in-person visits to the clinic. The first study “was prompted by a lack.

A small study in New York found no difference in outcomes among patients with COVID-19 compared with patients who had both influenza and COVID-19, according to data presented at IDWeek. “Early in the pandemic, when everything was new, in the news there was a report mentioning that COVID-19 and influenza coinfection was not possible. Then some reports in China confirmed coinfection but only a few cases,” Renato G. Bobadilla, MD, a medical resident at Saint Barnabas Hospital in New York, told Healio. “However, here in the Bronx, we were hit earlier than other states, coinciding.
