Current Insights in Whipple's Disease

, : Current Insights in Whipple's Disease. Current Treatment Options in Gastroenterology 6(1): 13-16

Therapy for Whipple's disease should be continued for a minimum of 1 year, and the regimen should include an agent or agents that achieve acceptable concentrations in the central nervous system, given the likelihood of recurrence at this site. Clinical follow-up of proven cases of Whipple's disease should be conducted for a minimum of 10 years after discontinuation of therapy, given the potential for late relapses. Polymerase chain reaction analysis is preferred rather than endoscopy when evaluating for disease recurrence.

During 2-12 August 1999, the development of a surface bloom dominated by the cyanobacterium Nodularia spumigena was followed in the western Gulf of Finland, Baltic Sea. Intense surface scums of aggregated N. spumigena existed on calm days. The low...
