Lyme disease in Poland – A serious problem?

Conclusions The reported incidence of LD in Poland, in our opinion, may be biased by overreporting and overdiagnosis. Nonspecific musculoskeletal and joint pain are the most frequent cause of LD suspicion and hospitalization. There is a necessity of better tests for active LD confirmation (especially in patients with musculoskeletal pain) as seroprevalence of anti Borrelia burgdorferi antibodies is high in endemic regions.

Authors: Kutlu O, Kaleli HN, Ozer E Abstract The proportion of obese or diabetic population has been anticipated to increase in the upcoming decades, which rises the prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and its progression to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Recent evidence indicates that NASH is the main cause of chronic liver diseases and it is an important risk factor for development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Although the literature addressing NASH-HCC is growing rapidly, limited data is available about the etiology of NASH-related HCC. Experimental studies on the molecular mechani...

In this study we analysed the effect of laser treatment of aphthous lesions with four devices available on the market, two with wavelength in the infra-red region (2940 nm 808 nm) and two with a wavelength in the visible region (450 nm and 635 nm).Diode lasers 808 nm and 450 nm defined almost the same results with an improvement starting already after the application and gradually improving until 7 days after treatment without any statistically significant difference between them. Diode 635 nm was the device gaining the earliest effect reducing the pain already during the treatment and maintaining it at low...

Publication date: October 2018Source: American Journal of Kidney Diseases, Volume 72, Issue 4Author(s): Yoshio N. HallThere is ongoing recognition that a wide array of social, economic, and environmental factors influence individuals’ opportunities to engage in health care and healthy behaviors. Despite spending $34 billion annually on the care of patients with end-stage renal disease, the American public and nephrology community remain remarkably complacent about addressing “upstream” factors that influence the prevention, progression, and treatment of chronic kidney diseases. Recently, a growing number ...
