Monkeypox Information Center
Looking to learn more about Monkeypox? This page provides access to all Cureus-published Monkeypox articles. These articles include information on transmission, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and a history of the disease. "The World Health Organization (WHO) recently declared the monkeypox virus a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). As the cases of the COVID-19 pandemic start to get under control, we have seen the monkeypox virus, found predominantly in Africa, spread in non-endemic countries worldwide. In the 1970s, after the smallpox virus eradication and the vaccine's discontinuation, the monkeypox virus infection started to gain attention. The first United States outbreak happened in 2003; since then, more sporadic cases of monkeypox have gained media attention." 1 Read the full article: Prevention and Treatment of Monkeypox: A Step-by-Step Guide for Healthcare Professionals and General Population Click below to access our library of Monkeypox articles to learn more about this infectious disease.

Radiological Determinants of Thromboembolic Events in COVID-19 Pneumonia: A Retrospective Study
Read the full story from healthimaging.com "New research highlights key CT findings that radiologists should be aware of when interpreting the exams of patients with COVID pneumonia. The paper details an analysis of 276 COVID patients and how their image findings correlated to their experiences with thromboembolic events. Corresponding author of the paper Mohd Ghadeeb, MD, from the Radiology Department at King Fahad Hospital in Saudi Arabia, and colleagues explained the importance and challenges involved in understanding COVID patients’ risks of clotting complications recently in Cureus: 'Thromboembolic manifestations have a wide spectrum and vary significantly among different patients. These include venous thromboembolic events, arterial events, and microvascular thrombosis,” the researchers wrote. “The diagnosis of venous thromboembolic events, including deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, can be challenging due to overlapping clinical and laboratory features.'"

A-Fib Linked to Worse Hospital Outcomes in Multiple Myeloma
A Cureus article was recently highlighted in HealthDay. In stratified analysis, odds of all-cause mortality, hospital stay of more than five days higher for MM patients not using anticoagulation Overall, 13.1 percent of hospitalized patients with multiple myeloma (MM) have atrial fibrillation, which is associated with worse outcomes, according to a study recently published in Cureus. Inimfon Jackson, M.D., M.P.H., Ph.D., from Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, and colleagues conducted a retrospective cohort analysis using data from the National Inpatient Sample from 2016 to 2018 to explore the prevalence of atrial fibrillation among MM patients and the impact of atrial fibrillation on outcomes. The researchers found that 13.1 percent of the 68,267 hospitalizations with a diagnosis of MM reported having atrial fibrillation. Compared with those without atrial fibrillation, MM patients with atrial fibrillation had increased odds of inpatient all-cause mortality (adjusted odds ratio, 1.16)...

Cureus July 2022 Newsletter
Hi, We've made some major changes to the Cureus peer review process that you should know about. All articles in peer review now require two completed reviews from peer reviewers invited by Cureus. The only exception: articles featuring a Cureus Laureate author will only require that one of the two completed reviews be from a Cureus-invited reviewer. We've also eliminated the 21 day exemption for articles that have not received a Cureus-invited review. All articles (except those with a Cureus Laureate author) now require two Cureus-invited reviews. Why did we make these changes? To further bolster the quality and thoroughness of Cureus peer review. Detailed analysis of review times indicate that these changes to our review policy will not have a major effect on article publication times.

A Case of Idiopathic Cold Agglutinin Hemolytic Anemia Successfully Treated With Steroids
Read the full story from coldagglutininnews.com. A 71-year-old woman with primary cold agglutinin disease (CAD) was successfully treated with the glucocorticoid prednisone, a case study reported. Its scientists noted that primary CAD typically does not respond to glucocorticoids, but in particular instances like this case, it can. The study, “A Case of Idiopathic Cold Agglutinin Hemolytic Anemia Successfully Treated With Steroids,” was published in the journal Cureus. In CAD, autoantibodies known as cold agglutinins bind to red blood cells at low temperatures, causing them to clump together and die in a process called hemolysis. While in primary CAD the cause of the disease is unknown, secondary CAD is associated with an underlying illness, such as an infection, another autoimmune disorder, or some types of cancer.
