Authors: Mari A, Khoury T, Said Ahmad H, Abu Baker F, Kadah A, Sbeit W, Pellicano R, Mahamid M Abstract BACKGROUND: Non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFLD) disease has become the commonest cause of end-stage liver disease. Patients with NAFLD have an increased risk of associated extrahepatic conditions, including structural and functional cardiovascular disease. Still, it is unknown if there is an association between NAFLD and valvular heart disease (VHD). OBJECTIVE: to determine the association between NAFLD and VHD. METHODS: We performed a single center retrospective study in EMMS Nazareth Hospital from April 2...

Authors: Venugopal N, Yeh J, Kodeboyina SK, Lee TJ, Sharma S, Patel N, Sharma A Abstract The discovery of lung carcinoma subtype-specific gene expression changes has the potential to elucidate the molecular differences and provide personalized therapeutic targets for these pathologies. The aim of the present study was to characterize the genetic profiles of the early stages (IA/IB) of two non-small cell lung cancer subtypes, adenocarcinoma (AD) and squamous cell carcinoma (SC). RNA-Seq gene expression data from The Cancer Genome Atlas was analyzed to compare the gene expression differences between AD and SC. The ge...

Authors: Bagai S, Prakash A, Agrawal A Abstract Aim: To determine the proportion of patients who have Acute Kidney Injury (AKI), identify severity of AKI using RIFLE criteria and to identify associated factors with AKI. Methods: One thousand consecutive medical in-patients were screened for AKI and severity assessed using RIFLE criteria in tertiary care hospital in Northern India. Patients with medical renal disease and obstructive uropathy were excluded. Serum creatinine of all patients were done on days 0, 3, 7 and 14. CKD cases were also excluded. AKI patients were followed at 4 weeks and 3 months. Resul...

DISCUSSION: Since 2014, the worldwide "epidemic" of sensitization to MI has been subsiding in Central Europe, thanks to corresponding restrictions on use. Since 2008, there is no longer any widespread exposure to MDBGN; the new, higher test concentration elicits many false-positive test reactions and explains the sudden rise in positive patch test reactions since 2016. Despite widespread use, phenoxyethanol, benzoates, benzyl alcohol, parabens and sorbates rarely cause allergic reactions. Therefore, they can be recommended for cosmetics from the epidemiological-allergological point of view. PMID: 31792581 [Pu...

Shah, Arti R. Gupta, Shrikant V. Joshi, Dinesh O. ShahAbstractPsoriasis is a widespread chronic disease affecting 1-3% of total population. In major cases (>80%), it is treated by topical application of corticosteroids. However, the topical route is very challenging due to physico-chemical nature of diseased stratum corneum and so no single treatment works for every patient. The oral route showed severe side effects due to systemic immu...

Authors: Hostalek U, Zilahi Z Abstract Objectives: Prediabetes is characterised by elevation of indices of blood glucose that is insufficient to provoke a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes, but markedly increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the future. Lifestyle interventions are the main therapeutic intervention for the management of prediabetes. Current guidelines also support treatment of prediabetes with metformin for selected subgroups of patients, and metformin has a therapeutic indication for this use in a number of countries.Methods: We performed an observational, non-interventional study of the ef...
