Time once again for a run down of some of the new and noteworthy articles in the current literature. Most of these are from the April/May issues, although I have included a couple March publications that missed me on the 1st pass. As always, please keep in mind this in no way a comprehensive list; simply items that have caught my attention from a selection of peer-reviewed journals. All links lead to abstracts; from there you can choose what’s worth a.) paying for; b.) a pilgrimage to your nearest medical library; or c.) downloading via the full-text access you possibly have at your disposal.
