Abstract Truncated tryptophanyl-tRNA synthetase (mini-TrpRS), like any other aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, canonically functions as a protein synthesis enzyme. Here we provide evidence for an additional signaling role of mini-TrpRS in the formation of monocyte-derived multinuclear giant cells (MGCs). Interferon-gamma (IFNγ) readily induced monocyte aggregation leading to MGC formation with paralleled marked upregulation of mini-TrpRS. Small interfering (si)RNA, targeting mini-TrpRS in the presence...
Background and Aims: Nerve conduction study (NCS) measures how fast an electrical impulse moves through the nerve and is a standard technique for diagnosing and assessing neurological diseases. Despite diabetes and obesity being a common accompaniment of peripheral neuropathy, their effects on NCS patterns have not been elucidated conclusively. Our study aimed to assess several anthropometric and metabolic factors with NCS outcomes to address this gap. Research Design and Methods: This retrospec...

INTRODUCTION This study investigated the smoking behaviours and cessation rates of head and neck cancer (HNC) patients, and their barriers and facilitators to cessation. METHOD The study used a mixed methods, sequential explanatory design. The quantitative data were collected at baseline (around time of cancer diagnosis) via a survey prior to commencement of treatment. Participants identified as current smokers at baseline were then followed up to determine their smoking status after treatment a...

Objective This study aims to establish the postoperative success rates of midvaginal versus juxtacervical obstetric vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) repairs. In addition, we aim to quantify the impact of patient sociodemographic variables, fistula classification, and surgical repair techniques associated with postoperative outcomes. Methods A retrospective cohort study was conducted involving 420 women who had undergone a primary obstetric VVF repair. All data were collected from the Panzi Hospital, ...

This case is of a 34-year-old immunocompromised male with Pott's puffy tumour, which was treated with antibiotics and endoscopic sinus surgery. Pott's puffy tumour is typically a complication of frontal sinusitis in children and immunocompromise can be a precipitating factor. A search was conducted of Embase, Medline, CINAHL, Cochrane, Google Scholar, Informit and Scopus of 'Pott's Puffy' and variations of this phrase. Initial 804 records were reviewed by title, abstract and full text. Of the un...

BACKGROUND Magnetic resonance enterography (MRE) is the mainstay imaging modality in the evaluation of small bowel Crohn's disease (CD) activity and its associated complications. Few studies have assessed the indications for ordering it and its association with management changes. The objective was to identify the current clinical utilization of MRE and associated management changes in patients with established small bowel CD. METHODS A retrospective audit was conducted on all patients with esta...

Background The objective of this study is to assess the current literature on the effectiveness of fibrin glue on survival of skin grafts. Fibrin glue is a possible alternative to secure skin grafts instead of traditional methods (i.e. sutures or staples). Methods Data Sources: MEDLINE, Scopus, Embase, Informit, CINAHL and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, no limit on the earliest date of publication. Study eligibility criteria Randomised, non-randomised controlled trials and c...

The Townsville Hospital is a tertiary hospital in North Queensland with one of the largest regional transplant centres in Australia, performing primarily autologous haemopoietic stem cell transplants (HSCT) for various haematological malignancies. This single-centre, retrospective, observational study aims to describe the activity and outcomes of autologous HSCT at The Townsville Hospital between 2003 and 2017 to verify safety standards. Patient-level data were collected, including demographics,...

Aneurysms demonstrate vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC) phenotypic modulation characterized by the prevailing of synthetic over contractile properties. We have shown previously the ability of interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) to switch VSMC from contractile to synthetic phenotype via upregulating the truncated form of tryptophanyl-tRNA synthetase (mini-TrpRS) in vitro. Here we discuss a possible role of the IFN-γ/mini-TrpRS signalling axis in the pathology of human abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA).
