Unilateral axillary Adenopathy in the setting of COVID-19 vaccine

Radiologists should consider recent COVID-19 vaccination history as a possible differential diagnosis for patients with unilateral axillary adenopathy. Hyperplastic axillary nodes can be seen on sonography after any vaccination but are more common after a vaccine that evokes a strong immune response.

DNA vaccines against COVID-19: Perspectives and challenges

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is caused by a novel coronovirus known as SARS-CoV-2. The rapid spread of this pathogen and the increasing number of cases highlight the urgent development of vaccines. DNA vaccination is a promising alternative to conventional vaccines.

The first prospective controlled trial comparing wireless capsule endoscopy with push enteroscopy in chronic gastrointestinal bleeding

Push enteroscopy (PE) is at present considered to be the most effective diagnostic procedure. In the present trial in patients with CGB, wireless CE had the highest diagnostic yield and was significantly superior to PE. Both CE and PE were safe and were not associated with any morbidity.

Endoscopic management of refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease

The study evaluated the safety and efficacy of endoscopic band ligation in the management of gastroesophageal reflux disease. 150 patients with refractory GERD were assigned to an EBL group and a control group.

Capsule endoscopy versus enteroclysis in the detection of small-bowel involvement in Crohn's disease: a prospective trial

The study compared the diagnostic yield of wireless capsule endoscopy (WCE) and enteroclysis in evaluating the extent of small-bowel involvement in Crohn's disease (CD) Abnormal findings were documented in 8 of 31 patients by using enteroclysis and in 22 of 31 cases by using WCE.

Clinical trial: a randomized trial of early endoscopy, Helicobacter pylori testing and empirical therapy for the management of dyspepsia in primary care

Early endoscopy, Helicobacter pylori eradication, and empirical acid suppression are commonly used dyspepsia management strategies. 'Test and treat' was the most cost-effective strategy.

Push enteroscopy for obscure gastrointestinal bleeding yields a high incidence of proximal lesions within reach of a standard endoscope

Researchers looked at 95 patients with obscure gastrointestinal bleeding. A suspected source of bleeding was found in 39 of 95 patients. 64% of the suspected bleeding sources were within reach of a standard endoscope

Helicobacter pylori "test and treat" or endoscopy for managing dyspepsia: an individual patient data meta-analysis

Helicobacter pylori "test and treat" has been recommended for the management of young dyspeptic patients without alarm symptoms. None of these trials have had a sufficient sample size to confirm that "test & treat" costs less or to detect small differences in effect.
