Interview with Dr Samir Johna

This author interview is by Dr Samir Johna, of the Loma Linda University School of Medicine. Dr Johna's full paper, Can Reflective Writing Reconcile ACGME Core Competencies with Daily Encounters in Medical Education? A Prospective, Randomized, Cross-over Pilot Study, is available for download in Journal of Medical Education and Curricular Development.

Please summarise for readers the content of your article

This article looks into the feasibility of using a simple and affordable pedagogy in teaching ACGME core competencies using reflective writing through narratives.

How did you come to be involved in your area of study?

I am the founding program director for a community based general surgery residency program and I am interested in medical education.

What was previously known about the topic of your article?

Reflective writing through narratives has not been used before for teaching ACGME core competencies. The first author had published a couple of abstracts and article about this topic and is taking his research a step further.

How has your work in this area advanced understanding of the topic?

I believe that narratives are excellent tools that are available to everyone and if used properly, can enhance the learning experience of our trainees in areas of ACGME core competencies.

What do you regard as being the most important aspect of the results reported in the article?

While we could not prove that using narrative improved skills, we were able to confirm that we were underpowered. We were able using the results from this work to calculate the minimal size of the sample in each arm to answer our research question. This will help investigators to more on with larger prospective studies.

Dr Sliwinski on Peri- and Post-Menopausal Memory Decline

Roughly 70% of peri- and post-menopausal women report memory concerns. However, despite these concerns, cognitive decline is rarely treated as a primary symptom of menopause. Furthermore, research addressing the best way to treat memory decline in peri- and post-menopausal women is scant. While hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is commonly prescribed to women following menopause, past research has indicated that HRT may actually exacerbate cognitive decline. Furthermore, HRT is contraindicated for some women, due to evidence linking it to an increased risk for cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Despite these concerns, a new line of research suggests that memory concerns may be successfully treated by focusing on alleviating the more commonly known menopausal symptoms. For example, sleep disturbance, hot flashes, and increased depression are commonly occurring menopausal symptoms that are known to have both immediate and long-term effects on cognitive ability.
In a recently published paper (Sliwinski, Johnson, & Elkins, 2014), researchers at Baylor University have put forth a model suggesting how mind-body interventions may be used to treat memory decline, by focusing on improving sleep, depression, and hot flashes. Mind-body interventions involve many commonly used alternative therapies including yoga, hypnosis, mindfulness, and meditation. What separates these interventions from other alternative therapies is that they do not involve the ingestion of any exogenous substances into the body. Therefore, women who are seeking further treatment for memory concerns are able to participate in mind-body therapies without worrying about any potentially dangerous drug interactions or unpleasant side-effects.

Additionally, once a treatment is learned, individuals are able to utilize these treatments at their own discretion, thus improving mood and self-reliance.
Although this model for improving memory in postmenopausal women has only recently been proposed, past research has shown that mind-body interventions are capable of improving menopausal symptoms. New research will be needed to help determine whether the model put forth by the Baylor researchers can be used to create new and effective treatment programs for improving memory in postmenopausal women.

Dr Sliwinski is one of the authors of the recently published paper "Memory decline in peri- and post-menopausal women: The potential of mind-body medicine to improve cognitive performance" available for download now in Integrative Medicine Insights

Dr Nguyen & Dr Lu on Ribosomopathies

Ribosomes: Structure and Function

In order to understand ribosomopathies, a heterogeneous class of human diseases, it is better to first have a glimpse at the molecular machinery known as the ribosome. Structurally, the ribosome is mainly composed of ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs) and ribosomal proteins (RPs); its function is to perform the arduous task of decoding genomic DNA, a genetic information carrier, and converting the genetic codes into amino acids, the building blocks for proteins, in a process aptly known as translation. The ribosome thus plays an indispensible role in the production of all the proteins in our body - including the RPs necessary for its own function.

Although the primary function of the ribosome is to make proteins, more recent investigations have expanded its repertoire, adding two key facets of functionality. First, the proteins that comprise the ribosome do more than simply aid in translation. RPs have been found to regulate specific messages coming from the nucleus, essentially having a say in which messages are converted into proteins and which messages are ignored. Second, the individual RPs that constitute the ribosome are not static, but are highly dynamic both spatially and temporally. The ribosomal profile of one particular cell may widely differ from another cell in terms of developmental maturity and tissue specificity. With these pieces of knowledge in mind, we can turn our attention to understanding diseases that incur when the functionality of ribosomes is compromised.

Ribosomopathies: When Ribosomes Go Wrong

Apparently, ribosomopathies are pathologic conditions that result from dysfunctional ribosomes. However, the heterogeneous nature of ribosomal function translates to a heterogeneous class of diseases. The mechanisms of action and resulting clinical presentations and therapeutic options differ significantly between one ribosomopathy and another (Table 1). Because these diseases are caused by different ribosomal defects, their clinical features vary greatly. For example, pancreatic insufficiency is specific for Schwachman-Diamond syndrome (SDS), compared to the skin hyperpigmentation and pulmonary fibrosis found in X-linked dyskeratosis congenita (DKC). Nevertheless, their clinical features share some similarities. With the exception of Treacher Collins syndrome, each of the listed ribosomopathies is associated with blood abnormalities and an increased risk for cancer. Heterogeneity also occurs even within these two pathologic categories. Patients with Diamond-Blackfan Anemia (DBA), 5q-syndrome, or Cartilage hair hypoplasia (CHH) all face complications of anemia, but each disease carries a different cancer risk profile. Similarly, patients with either SDS or DC carry the risk for contracting AML, but only those with DC also suffer from solid tumors in the head and neck.  

With our incomplete understanding of how ribosomal failures lead to such variable pathologies comes the unfortunate reality that current therapies are only limited to symptomatic treatment with stem cell transplantation being potentially required in cases of bone marrow failure or blood cancers. Although a good progress has been made in identifying specific and defective RP-coding genes, there is still much to learn. Illustrating the molecular mechanisms governing the ribosome is the key to developing improved and targeted treatment regimens for all patients with ribosomopathies.

Dr Nguyan & Dr Lu are authors of the recently published paper Ribosomopathies: Mechanisms of Disease, available for download now in Clinical Medicine Insights: Blood Disorders.
