Occult Hepatitis B Virus Infection

Occult hepatitis B virus infection (OHB) is defined as presence of Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) deoxyribonucleic acid in blood or tissues with undetectable hepatitis B surface antigen, outwith the preseroconversion window period. Several possibilities have been hypothesized as the mechanisms of OHB. The clinical significance of OHB remains vastly unknown. OHB was initially detected in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma or…

A Multi-Functional Gene Family From Arthritis to Cancer: A Disintegrin-Like Metalloproteinase with Thrombospondin Type-1 Motif (ADAMTS)

A Disintegrin-like and Metalloproteinase with Trombospondin type-1 motif (ADAMTS) genes were first discovered in 1997. Currently 19 mammalian ADAMTS proteainases have identified. As a member of matrix metalloproteinases, ADAMTS play a critical role in the degradation/repairing of extracellular matrix. Recent studies demonstrated that ADAMTSs were likely to be useful in understanding of many disease pathogenesis such as arthritis, liver fibrosis…

Antimicrobial Prophylaxis Overview of Current Surgical Infections

Surgical wound infections are the second most common healthcare-associated infection. Although usually localized to the incision site, surgical wound infections can also extend into adjacent deeper structures; thus, the term surgical wound infection has now been replaced with the more suitable name, surgical site infection (SSI). The term ?antimicrobial prophylaxis? is that the administration of antimicrobial drug before or just…
