Complete Genome Sequencing of the Novel Pseudomonas aeruginosa Phage UF_RH1

ASM Journals

Abdolrazagh Hashemi Shahraki, et. al


Here, we present the genome sequence of a novel Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteriophage called UF_RH1. This lytic phage has a genome size of 42,567 bp and is classified as a member of the Siphoviridae family and the Septimatrevirus genus. UF_RH1 shares genetic similarities with Stenotrophomonas phage vB_SmaS-DLP_2. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen that poses significant challenges for treatment.

Results From a Phase 4, Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study of Repository Corticotropin Injection for the Treatment of Pulmonary Sarcoidosis

Pulmonary Therapy

Mehdi Mirsaeidi, et. al


Introduction: Long-term treatment of pulmonary sarcoidosis with glucocorticoids has been associated with toxicity and other adverse events, highlighting the need for alternative therapies. The goal of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of repository corticotropin injection (RCI, Acthar® Gel) in patients with pulmonary sarcoidosis and to validate endpoints for use in future clinical trials.
