  • Advances in the treatment of cytomegalovirus
    • Authors: Krishna B; Wills M, Sinclair J.
      Pages: 5 - 17
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundHuman cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is a threat to immunologically weak patients. HCMV cannot yet be eliminated with a vaccine, despite recent advances.Sources of dataSources of data are recently published research papers and reviews about HCMV treatments.Areas of agreementCurrent antivirals target the UL54 DNA polymerase and are limited by nephrotoxicity and viral resistance. Promisingly, letermovir targets the HCMV terminase complex and has been recently approved by the FDA and EMA.Areas of controversyShould we screen newborns for HCMV, and use antivirals to treat sensorineural hearing loss after congenital HCMV infection'Growing pointsGrowing points are developing drugs against latently infected cells. In addition to small molecule inhibitors, a chemokine-based fusion toxin protein, F49A-FTP, has shown promise in killing both lytically and latently infected cells.Areas timely for developing researchWe need to understand what immune responses are required to control HCMV, and how best to raise these immune responses with a vaccine.

  • Ethical and policy issues raised by uterus transplants
    • Authors: O’Donovan L; Williams N, Wilkinson S.
      Pages: 19 - 28
      Abstract: AbstractIntroductionIn 2014, Brännström and colleagues reported the first human live birth following uterine transplantation (UTx). Research into this treatment for absolute uterine factor infertility has since grown with clinical trials currently taking place across centers in at least thirteen countries worldwide.Sources of dataThis review summarizes and critiques the academic literature on ethical and policy issues raised by UTx.Areas of agreementThere is general agreement on the importance of risk reduction and, in principle, to the sharing and maintenance of patient data on an international registry.Areas of controversyThere are numerous areas of controversy ranging from whether it is ethically justified to carry out uterus transplants at all (considering the associated health risks) to how deceased donor organs for transplant should be allocated. This review focuses on three key issues: the choice between deceased and living donors, ensuring valid consent to the procedure and access to treatment.Growing pointsUTx is presently a novel and rare procedure but is likely to become more commonplace in the foreseeable future, given the large number of surgical teams working on it worldwide.Areas timely for developing researchUterus transplantation requires us to re-examine fundamental questions about the ethical and social value of gestation. If eventually extended to transgender women or even to men, it may also require us to reconceptualize what it is to be a ‘father’ or to be a ‘mother’, and the definition of these terms in law.

  • Arthroscopic primary repair of the anterior cruciate ligament in adults: a
           systematic review
    • Authors: Papalia R; Torre G, Papalia G, et al.
      Pages: 29 - 42
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundThe most common procedure to manage a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is surgical reconstruction. Primary repair of the ACL is returning on the forefront in the management of acute ACL, aiming to be less invasive and preserve the original ligament. Several techniques have been reported; the present systematic review investigates the clinical outcomes of ACL primary repair in adults.Sources of dataFollowing an electronic search through Medline, Cochrane and Google Scholar databases, articles of interest were retrieved and evaluated, including case series, retrospective studies, case-control studies and randomized controlled trials. The main outcome data were extracted and summarized in tables and text. The methodology of the studies was assessed using the Coleman methodology score (CMS).Areas of agreementOf the articles included, one was of level I, two of level III and the remaining of level IV. The direct intraligamentary stabilization technique was the most widely and accurately reported technique, with acceptable success and improvement of functional outcomes. The CMS averaged 58.75 (range 48 to 69), with no significant association with year of publication (Pearson’s regression r = −0.397, P = 0.207).Areas of controversyConcerning stump sutures and suture anchors repair, although leading to good results, also in comparison with ACL reconstruction, no sufficient evidence was available to support these techniques.Growing pointsThe overall good results were reported also for other techniques are not supported by adequate evidence. More and better trials are required to improve our knowledge and understanding in this controversial area.

  • The counter-intuitive role of the neutrophil in the acute respiratory
           distress syndrome
    • Authors: Vassallo A; Wood A, Subburayalu J, et al.
      Pages: 43 - 55
      Abstract: AbstractIntroductionNeutrophils are the primary effectors of the innate immune system but are profoundly histotoxic cells. The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is considered to be a prime example of neutrophil-mediated tissue injury.Sources of dataThe information presented in this review is acquired from the published neutrophil cell biology literature and the longstanding interest of the senior authors in ARDS pathogenesis and clinical management.Areas of agreementInvestigators in the field would agree that neutrophils accumulate in high abundance in the pulmonary microcirculation, lung interstitium and alveolar airspace of patients with ARDS. ARDS is also associated with systemic neutrophil priming and delayed neutrophil apoptosis and clearance of neutrophils from the lungs. In animal models, reducing circulating neutrophil numbers ameliorates lung injury.Areas of controversyAreas of uncertainty include how neutrophils get stuck in the narrow pulmonary capillary network—whether this reflects changes in the mechanical properties of primed neutrophils alone or additional cell adhesion molecules, the role of neutrophil sub-sets or polarization states including pro-angiogenic and low-density neutrophils, whether neutrophil extracellular trap (NET) formation is beneficial (through bacterial capture) or harmful and the potential for neutrophils to participate in inflammatory resolution. The latter may involve the generation of specialized pro-resolving molecules (SPMs) and MMP-9, which is required for adequate matrix processing.Growing pointsDifferent and possibly stable endotypes of ARDS are increasingly being recognized, yet the relative contribution of the neutrophil to these endotypes is uncertain. There is renewed and intense interest in understanding the complex ‘new biology’ of the neutrophil, specifically whether this cell might be a valid therapeutic target in ARDS and other neutrophil-driven diseases and developing understanding of ways to enhance the beneficial role of the neutrophil in the resolution phase of ARDS.Areas timely for developing researchAside from treatment of the precipitating causes of ARDS, and scrupulous fluid, infection and ventilation management, there are no pharmacological interventions for ARDS; this represents an urgent and unmet need. Therapies aimed at reducing overall neutrophil numbers risk secondary infection; hence better ways are needed to reverse the processes of neutrophil priming activation, hyper-secretion and delayed apoptosis while enhancing the pro-resolution functions of the neutrophil.

  • Community-acquired acute bacterial meningitis in adults: a clinical update
    • Authors: Ellis J; Luintel A, Chandna A, et al.
      Pages: 57 - 70
      Abstract: AbstractBackgroundAcute bacterial meningitis (ABM) in adults is associated with a mortality that may exceed 30%. Immunization programs have reduced the global burden; in the UK, declining incidence but persistently high mortality and morbidity mean that clinicians must remain vigilant.Sources of dataA systematic electronic literature search of PubMed was performed to identify all ABM literature published within the past 5 years.Areas of agreement and controversyClinical features cannot reliably distinguish between ABM and other important infectious and non-infectious aetiologies. Prompt investigation and empirical treatment are imperative. Lumbar puncture (LP) and cerebrospinal fluid microscopy, biochemistry and culture remain the mainstay of diagnosis, but molecular techniques are increasingly useful. The 2016 UK joint specialist societies’ guideline provides expert recommendations for the management of ABM, yet published data suggest clinical care delivered in the UK is frequently not adherent. Anxiety regarding risk of cerebral herniation following LP, unnecessary neuroimaging, underutilization of molecular diagnostics and suboptimal uptake of adjunctive corticosteroids compromise management.Growing pointsThere is increasing recognition that current antibiotic regimens and adjunctive therapies alone are insufficient to reduce the mortality and morbidity associated with ABM.Areas timely for developing researchResearch should be focused on optimization of vaccines (e.g. pneumococcal conjugate vaccines with extended serotype coverage), targeting groups at risk for disease and reservoirs for transmission; improving adherence to management guidelines; development of new faster, more accurate diagnostic platforms (e.g. novel point-of-care molecular diagnostics); and development of new adjunctive therapies (aimed at the host-inflammatory response and bacterial virulence factors).

  • Hydration Interventions for older people living in residential and nursing
           care homes: overview of the literature
    • Authors: Cook G; Hodgson P, Thompson J, et al.
      Pages: 71 - 79
      Abstract: AbstractIntroductionCare home populations experiencing high levels of multi-morbidity and dementia require support from caregivers to meet their hydration requirements. This article provides an overview of literature related to hydration interventions and highlights gaps in knowledge.Sources of dataThis paper draws on UK-focused literature from Applied Social Sciences Index and Abstracts (ASSIA), CINAHL, Medline, Proquest Hospital Premium Collection, Cochrane Library and RCN databases on hydration interventions for older people living with multi-morbidity and dementia in care homes.Areas of agreementFluid intake is too low in care home residents, and no single hydration intervention is effective in addressing the complex problems that older residents present.Areas of controversyThere is a lack of consensus about how much fluid an older person should consume daily for optimum health. There is also lack of agreement about what interventions are effective in supporting individuals with complex physical and cognitive problems to achieve daily fluid intake targets.Growing pointsTo improve hydration care for residents, care home teams should be competent in the delivery of hydration care, and work closely with integrated multi-professional healthcare specialists to provide proactive case management.Areas timely for developing researchThere is a need for understanding of what hydration practices and processes are effective for care home residents and including these in multi-component interventions.

  • Hip scores: A current concept review
    • Authors: Longo U; Ciuffreda M, Candela V, et al.
      Pages: 81 - 96
      Abstract: AbstractIntroductionDuring the past decades, several rating scales have been developed to assess the functional status of patients with hip pain.Source of dataA search in Medline, PubMed, Cochrane and CINAHL was performedusing combinations of the following‘hip’, ‘scoring system’, ‘scale’, ‘scores’, ‘outcome assessment’, ‘arthroplasty’, ‘arthroscopy’ and ‘clinical evaluation’.Areas of agreementA total 16 scoring systems are currently available for the evaluation of the hip.Areas of controversyTwo types of questionnaires are available: physician-rated and patient-rated questionnaires.Growing pointsEach hip score consists of different domains. Interpreting these domains becomes sometimes difficult, because, even though they can be common to more than one scoring system, each stresses them in a different way.Areas timely for developing researchAlthough many scoring systems have been used to evaluate hip function, we are still far from a single outcome evaluation system which is reliable, valid and sensitive.
