Happy 2021! @MBVanElzakker and I are excited to share our new article published in #Immunometabolism: “Pathogens Hijack Host Cell Metabolism: Intracellular Infection as a Driver of the Warburg Effect in Cancer and Other Chronic Inflammatory Conditions”: ij.hapres.com/htmls/IJ_1341_…
2/ In the paper, we detail molecular mechanisms by which #viral, #bacterial, and #parasite intracellular pathogens can induce, or contribute to, a Warburg-like #metabolism in infected host cells in order to meet their own replication and nutritional needs.
3/ We also discuss how host defense towards #infection may impact cellular metabolic changes (including how #mitochondria can participate in the innate immune response towards infection)

Now eye enjoyed an important question addressed at #EAN2020. Good to think about when you are called to ED for #opticneuritis. Let’s think about it together. Let’s focus on #clinicaldiagnosismaking #meded #medstudenttwitter #medtwitter #neurologyresident @WNGtweets @EANeurology
How do you tell if it’s optic neuritis or not? #painless #unilateral #altitudinal -means top half or bottom half of the field - vision loss more likely to be non-arteritic AION. Any other red flags less likely to be optic neuritis?
Now if it’s #painful it’s more likely #opticneuritis - but what sort? Bilateral vision loss and painful, think #MOG. Unilateral severe vision loss more than pain, think #Aquaporin4. MRI orbits show longitudinal extensive optic nerve enhancement in both. So MRI orbits for clues.

1. thread.

Nice @FrontPediatrics paper providing guidance for docs and #pwME in the diagnosis and management of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome #MECFS

2. #MECFS is commonly misdiagnosed as a #somatic disorder

#pwME "..have been humiliated or dismissed by other providers, so [doctors] will need to be.. nonjudgmental.. & acknowledge that #MECFS is not a #psychological condition but a real illness"

3. #MECFS symptoms can be diverse, complex, fluctuate and overlap with many other conditions making the diagnosis difficult

This @FrontPediatrics paper lists 33 (!) co-morbidities commonly associated with #MECFS
