Drugs to suppress the immune system after lung transplantation in people with cystic fibrosis | Cochrane

We reviewed evidence to find out the effects of individual drugs or combinations of drugs when they are given to prevent donor lungs being rejected following transplantation in people with cystic fibrosis. We only considered randomised studies (where it is decided at random which drug volunteers are given) comparing individual drugs or combinations of drugs to a placebo (dummy treatment with no active medicine) or to each other.

Platelet transfusions are used to prevent bleeding in people with low platelet counts due to treatment-induced bone marrow failure | Cochrane

We evaluated the evidence about whether platelet transfusions given to prevent bleeding in people with lower platelet counts (for example 5 x 109/L or below) were as effective and safe as the current standard (10 x 109/L or below), or whether higher platelet count levels (20 x 109/L or below, 30 x 109/L or below, or 50 x 109/L or below) were safer than the current standard (10 x 109/L or below). Our target population was people with blood cancers (for example leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma) who were receiving intensive (myelosuppressive) chemotherapy treatments or stem cell transplantation.

Interventions for the management of external root resorption | Cochrane

External root resorption is when the body’s own immune system dissolves the tooth root structure. It can occur following tooth infection, orthodontic treatments or in the presence of unerupted teeth in the jaw. Although this condition does not usually produce symptoms, external root resorption may result in movement of the tooth and, if not diagnosed and treated at an early stage, might eventually result in the tooth falling out. Despite this condition being quite common, treatment is generally on a case-by-case basis and there is a lack of evidence regarding the best treatments.

Doctor Skeptic: Book review: The wisdom of the body

Great blog, Listening to the body is great advice. I'm a physio and I feel that we sometimes push our patients to early after injury. The body stimulates the immune system during acute injury to protect us and give us an environment to heal, lets not mess with that to much.

Chemotherapy could make breast cancer patients more vulnerable to common infections

Patients with breast cancer who are treated with chemotherapy have depleted immune systems, leaving them vulnerable to common infections, researchers have warned in the journal Breast Cancer Research.1 They said that revaccination against common immunogens may need to be considered in some cases.

Boring Question: Fecal Leukocytes. Eh? - CanadiEM

A 25-year-old woman presents with diarrhea x 3 weeks. She has reports 6-12 loose bowel movements per day with urgency and mucous which are associated with cramping abdominal pain and a 5lb weight loss. She has not noticed any blood in her stool and reports no other extra-intestinal manifestations of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). She has not travelled recently and drinks out of a municipal water supply. None of her contacts have similar symptoms and she has had no changes to her diet. She has no family history of IBD but does have a family history of a variety of autoimmune conditions.  She is otherwise healthy and has had no recent contact with the health care system or use of antibiotics. Her vital signs are normal, she looks well and her abdominal exam is normal.
