  • Trying to Improve Sepsis Care in Low-Resource Settings
    • Authors: Machado FR; Angus DC.
      Abstract: Earlier this year, the World Health Organization recognized sepsis as a global health problem, responsible for millions of preventable deaths every year, and adopted a resolution targeting the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of sepsis, especially in low- and middle-income countries. Although most sepsis cases are assumed to occur in low- and middle-income countries, nearly all research on both the epidemiology of sepsis and optimal treatment comes from high-income countries.

  • Counting Sepsis, an Imprecise but Improving Science
    • Authors: Rudd KE; Delaney A, Finfer S.
      Abstract: Sepsis, most succinctly defined as organ dysfunction due to infection, is estimated to account for more than 5 million deaths around the world each year and to cause or contribute to approximately half of all deaths occurring in hospitals in the United States. A 2016 report from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project estimated the cost of treating sepsis in US hospitals in 2013 at $24 billion, making it the most expensive condition treated in US hospitals among all payers. In recent years, the substantial burden of sepsis at the individual, health system, and societal levels has become increasingly recognized by the medical community and the public, culminating in the World Health Organization (WHO) adopting the Improving the Prevention, Diagnosis, and Management of Sepsis resolution at the World Health Assembly in May 2017.

  • Ferric Carboxymaltose to Treat Isovolemic Anemia
    • Authors: Yu Z; Li T.
      Abstract: To the Editor In a randomized clinical trial, Dr Kim and colleagues found that among adults with isovolemic anemia following radical gastrectomy, ferric carboxymaltose compared with placebo resulted in improved hemoglobin response at 12 weeks. We are concerned about the uncertain internal validity and selective outcome reporting in the article.

  • Ferric Carboxymaltose to Treat Isovolemic Anemia—Reply
    • Authors: Kim Y; Yang H.
      Abstract: In Reply Drs Yu and Li were concerned that the results of the Ferric Carboxymaltose for Acute Isovolemic Anemia Following Gastrectomy (FAIRY) trial may have been skewed because patients with other causes of anemia were not excluded. Limited data on the reversal of certain types of anemia (such as sickle cell and HIV/AIDS-induced anemias) with intravenous iron demonstrate the importance of excluding such patient populations. However, 3 points ameliorate this concern. First, the exclusion criteria did eliminate patients with anemia induced by chronic, inherited, or severe conditions. Among other specifications, patients with concurrent medical conditions that jeopardized health, active infection or inflammation, or an American Society of Anesthesiologist (ASA) score greater than 3 were excluded from the study. Second, the prevalence of other anemia types that may have been overlooked by the exclusion criteria is small and should have been distributed equally in both groups. A study that evaluated the incidence and etiology of postgastrectomy anemia in 161 patients with gastric cancer found that non–iron-related causes of anemia—such as megaloblastic and vitamin B12 deficiency anemias—were rare.

  • Different Iron Preparations for Young Children With Iron-Deficiency Anemia
    • Authors: Fujita T.
      Abstract: To the Editor In a randomized clinical trial comparing the efficacy of different iron drops containing the same amounts of essential iron for infants and young children (aged 9-48 months) with nutritional iron-deficiency anemia (IDA), ferrous sulfate drops increased mean hemoglobin concentration by 4.0 g/dL during the study period of 12 weeks compared with 3.4 g/dL with iron polysaccharide complex drops (difference, 1.0 g/dL; 95% CI, 0.4-1.6 g/dL). Consequently, Dr Powers and colleagues recommended ferrous sulfate as the first-line treatment for IDA among infants and young children.

  • Different Iron Preparations for Young Children With Iron-Deficiency
    • Authors: Powers JM; Buchanan GR, McCavit TL.
      Abstract: In Reply Dr Fujita correctly notes that infants and young children treated with ferrous sulfate in the trial had the most rapid change in hemoglobin concentration within the first 4 weeks of therapy initiation. Based on the similar rate of change in hemoglobin concentration thereafter (4-12 weeks), the suggestion was made that iron polysaccharide complex may be as efficacious as ferrous sulfate in patients with mild cases of IDA. However, an analysis of patients with mild IDA in the study does not support this conclusion.

  • Nonpharmacologic Treatments for Depression in Older Adults
    • Authors: Gitlin LN; Aravena JM.
      Abstract: To the Editor In their review article, Drs Kok and Reynolds discussed the clinical challenge of treating late-life depression. They provided an exhaustive analysis of pharmacological treatments, including dosing, intensity, harmful effects, target populations, and clinical significance and offered useful clinical information and directions for future research. However, their analysis of other treatments lacked depth and they missed an important opportunity to provide readers an understanding of the full range of proven approaches for addressing late-life depression.

  • Nonpharmacologic Treatments for Depression in Older Adults
    • Authors: Kok RM; Reynolds CF, III.
      Abstract: In Reply We agree with Dr Gitlin and Mr Aravena concerning the importance of placing late-life depression within a psychosocial context. We mentioned in our review that “recent life events, coping with functional impairment, or having a lack of social contacts are examples of psychosocial factors that are frequent contributors to depression among older adults and should be addressed as part of treatment planning.”

  • Incorrect Data in the Statistical Methods Section
    • Abstract: In the Rational Clinical Examination article entitled “Does This Child Have Pneumonia' The Rational Clinical Examination Systematic Review” published in the August 1, 2017, issue of JAMA, incorrect data were reported in the Statistical Methods section. In the first paragraph of the section, the sentence should have read “From a pragmatic standpoint, at a pretest probability of 20%, the presence of a finding with an LR equal to 2 would increase the probability to 33%, and the absence of a finding with an LR equal to 0.5 would decrease the probability to 11%.” Additionally, the first sentence of the Findings section in Key Points should have read “In this systematic review and meta-analysis, the presence of hypoxia and increased work of breathing (grunting, nasal flaring, and retractions) were associated with the diagnosis of pneumonia.” This article was corrected online.

  • Brain Imaging in Infants May Help Predict Autism
    • Authors: Hampton T.
      Abstract: Infants at high familial risk of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) do not typically exhibit symptoms in their first year of life, but new research indicates that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may reveal signs of the disorder during this presymptomatic period. The findings point to a noninvasive method to detect autism at its earliest stages, when interventions may provide the most benefits.

  • Our Next Health Care Debate
    • Authors: Slavitt A.
      Abstract: It’s a perfect time to reflect on the national health policy debate over coverage. Not the one we’re having now, but the one we are destined to have sometime in the 2020s. Going back at least as far as Medicare and Medicaid in the 1960s, once a decade or so, we contemplate major national coverage reforms to the US health care system. While enthusiasm builds in some circles that the next debate has the potential to bring us full universal coverage, the lessons of our recent efforts tell us we often come away with far less than we should.

  • The Changing Concepts in Pathology
    • Abstract: Pathology as defined by Welch is “the science, as distinguished from the practice, of medicine. In a narrower and more restricted sense pathology is a study of the structural alterations produced by the disease, as revealed at postmortem examinations and during surgical operations. Pathologic anatomy is a study of these alterations, but the symptoms and the activities of the body resulting from these morbid changes belong also to pathology.”
