Dr. Butskiy – Journal of Otolaryngology

bDr. Oleksandr Butskiy and colleagues were published in the Journal of Otolaryngology for their original research article Rhine test: does the tuning for position affect the sound amplitude at the ear? Their research found that the orientation of the tuning forks matters, and the placement of the fork tines in parallel as opposed to perpendicular to the EAC results in higher sound amplitude at the level on the tympanic membrane.

Drs. Ham and Uy – Journal of General Internal Medicine

Drs. Ham and Uy, with their colleague Dr. DeWitt, published their case report of Facial Swelling and Rash following Tooth Extraction. In it they detail the case of an 88-year-old, HIV-negative, non-diabetic man developed right facial pain, swelling and redness one day after right upper molar extraction. Despite outpatient treatment of amoxicillin, swabs showed co-infection with herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1), varicella-zoster virus (VZV) and methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus. The patient received intravenous acyclovir and antibiotics. Three weeks later, his facial and palatal lesions had resolved.

Dr. Rayner-Hartley – Journal of the American Heart Association

Dr. Rayner Hartley and a colleague had a contemporary review published on Ranolazine. In it they find that Ranolazine is well tolerated in patients with CSAP through inhibition of the late sodium current, and supports it as a second line agent in patients with refractory angina.

Dr. Shahidi – Therapeutic Advances of Gastroenterology

Dr. Shahidi and colleagues were published in the Therapeutic Advances of Gastroenterology Journal discussing The role of vedolizumab in patients with moderate-to-severe Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Their research found that the GEMINI trails note vedolizumab is an effective therapy for patients with moderate-to-severe cases that had failed other conventional therapies.
