For low-risk patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) the recommended optimal discharge timing is inconsistent in guidelines. The European Society of Cardiology guidelines recommend early discharge within 48-72 h, while the American College of Cardiology guidelines do not recommend a specific discharge strategy. In this systematic review and meta-analysis we compared outcomes with early discharge (≤3 days) versus late discharge (>3 days). Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and observational studies were selected after searching MEDLINE and EMBASE database. Meta-analysis was stratified according to study design. Outcomes were reported as random effects risk ratios (RR) with 95% confidence intervals. Seven RCTs comprising 1780 patients and 4 observational studies comprising 39,288 patients were selected. The RCT-restricted analysis did not demonstrate significant differences in terms of all-cause mortality (RR, 0.97 [0.23-4.05]) and major adverse cardiac events (MACE) (RR, 0.84 [0.56-1.26]). Conversely, observational study restricted analysis showed that early vs late discharge strategy was associated with a reduction in all-cause mortality (RR, 0.40 [0.23-0.71]...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
