Pulmonary sarcoidosis and latent tuberculosis in a patient with psoriasis treated with adalimumab. - Dermatology online journal
Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors are powerful biologic medications that have been used successfully in the treatment of a variety of inflammatory conditions, including psoriasis. Although TNF inhibitors are generally well tolerated, their use increases the risk of infections such as tuberculosis (TB), and paradoxically, they have been associated with development of sarcoidosis. We report the case of a 54-year old man with plaque psoriasis who developed a positive TB test and pulmonary sarcoidosis after 12 months of adalimumab treatment. After stopping adalimumab, his psoriasis worsened and he was started on ustekinumab and narrowband UVB, with improvement in symptoms. We provide a review of the literature and discuss treatment challenges.
Addressing the needs of the whole child: what public health can do to answer the education sector's call for a stronger partnership. - Preventing chronic disease
Although the overall level of child health in the United States remains high, public health professionals know that racial and ethnic disparities in child and adolescent health persist and that lifestyle choices related to chronic disease in adults are often established in childhood and adolescence. And yet, those health needs are not the public health sector's alone to resolve. We have natural partners among educators. Improving graduation rates is one of the most cost-effective ways to reduce health disparities. This article provides strategies for how public health professionals can answer this call by educators to address the needs of the whole child.
A case study of evaluating informatics impact on diffusion of scientific knowledge. - AMIA ... Annual Symposium proceedings / AMIA Symposium. AMIA Symposium
This case study poster uses a newly developed framework to evaluate an informatics effort in its public health context. The electronic clearance system being evaluated provides the potential for increasing the speed and quality of scientific diffusion of knowledge, and thus translation of research into practice. A graphical logic model and tabular results of the evaluation are presented. Public health history suggests potential benefits of more timely and coordinated diffusion of scientific information.
