Highlights in Physician Assistant

Relationship benefit in women with IHD

As reported in Clinical Infectious Diseases, HIV-infected patients are at increased risk for non-Hodgkin‘s lymphoma (NHL). Of 6036 patients with 21607 person-years of follow-up, there were 37 incident cases of NHL. Compared to patients with ≤ 50 copies/mL, patients with 51-500 and > 500 copies/mL had HRs of 1.66 and 2.39 for NHL, respectively.

Water restriction improves nocturia

As reported in the International Journal of Urology, daytime/night-time water restriction significantly improves nocturia in patients with urine production ≥ 30 mL/kg.

Triple therapy superior to dual therapy in HCV

As reported in Mayo Clinic Proceedings, treatment of hepatitis C virus-infected patients with triple therapy (pegylated-interferon, ribavirin, and teleprevir) is more effective than dual therapy (pegylated-interferon and ribavirin). Specifically, a sustained virologic response was achieved in 51% of treatment-naïve patients, 67% of patients with a prior non-response and 56% of patients with a prior relapse of patients treated with triple therapy compared to 37%, 11%, and 27% of patients treated with dual therapy, respectively.
