Management of Hidradenitis Suppurativa in Patients with Metabolic Comorbidities.

Management of Hidradenitis Suppurativa in Patients with Metabolic Comorbidities. Ann Dermatol. 2016 Apr;28(2):147-51 Authors: Lim ZV, Oon HH Abstract Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic inflammatory skin condition associated with an increased prevalence of individual metabolic conditions such as insulin resistance, obesity, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and with the metabolic syndrome, as a constellation of these risk factors. This places affected patients at an increased risk of early cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Moreover, many of the therapeutic options, including the newer biologics, used in the treatment of hidradenitis suppurativa have both beneficial and adverse metabolic effects. Therefore, it is critical for physicians to consider the complex interactions between the disease process and the treatment options in the holistic management of these patients with an intrinsically higher risk of metabolic consequences. Other chronic systemic inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis have been studied more extensively with regard to their associations and share an underlying link with the metabolic syndrome; we can draw upon the existing knowledge in our understanding and management of hidradenitis suppurativa.

In elderly patients, this trial aimed to assess the impact of the addition of remifentanil during RSI on the occurrence of: tachycardia (primary outcome), hypertension (due to intubation) nor hypotension (rem...

In this study, we detected for just the second time a SINV infection in a diseased wild bird (common wood pigeon) from Central Europe. SINV was isolated by cell culture and the complete SINV genome sequence was determined. Phylogenetic analyses revealed a close affiliation to SINV genotype I with a high similarity to human isolate sequences from Finland, Sweden and Russia. The isolate was genetically distinct from the first avian isolate suggesting the circulation of at least two different SINV strains in Germany.In order to reveal the infection frequency in SINV positive mosquito regions 749 bird blood samples were assaye...

Authors: Bhullar SK, Shah AK, Dhalla NS Abstract Effective therapy of hypertension represents a key strategy for reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease and its associated mortality. The significance of voltage dependent L-type Ca²⁺ channels to Ca²⁺ influx, and of their regulatory mechanisms in the development of heart disease, is well established. A wide variety of L-type Ca²⁺ channel inhibitors and Ca²⁺ antagonists have been found to be beneficial not only in the treatment of hypertension, but also in myocardial infarction and heart failure. Over the past two decades, another cla...

Publication date: Available online 12 October 2019Source: PeptidesAuthor(s): Bingjun Qian, Chongchong Tian, Jianghua Huo, Zhiwen Ding, Ran Xu, Juan Zhu, Lili Yu, Oscar D. VillarrealAbstractThe current study investigated the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory activity of 4 synthetic tripeptides. All the peptides showed enzyme inhibitory activity, especially two promising ones, TTP (Thea-Thea-Pro) and gAgAP (GABA-GABA-Pro), with IC50 values of 0.92 and 3.4⿿μmol/L, respectively. Enzyme inhibition kinetics determined by Lineweaver-Burk plots revealed that TTP and gAgAP were competitive inhibitors with Ki value...

Authors: Sarikaya I, Albatineh A, Sarikaya A Abstract Aim: Standardized uptake value (SUV) normalized by body weight is affected by amount of body fat. Higher (overestimated) SUV is measured in normal tissues and lesions in obese patients than the patients with normal body mass index (BMI). SUV calculated/normalized by lean body mass (LBM, fat free body mass) (SUVLBM or SUL) instead of total weight is recommended to provide more accurate SUV results. Given importance of a quantitative PET parameter particularly when comparing PET studies, in this study we aimed to re-visit and re-assess the effect of obesity on SUV...

Any of you have any luck successfully managing a patient who argues with you that their lab results are abnormal, demanding tests that aren't indicated? I have done more of a work up than most would have done at this point and I do not think more testing is warranted. Example platelets of 180 they state is "lower end of normal, and is therefore abnormal," "a basophil percentage of 0.3% is low" and wanting rheumatoid arthritis work up with only symptom being dyspepsia. Explaining that... Dealing with difficult patients

The MetS is characterized by the occurrence of at least three of the following risk factors: decreased high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, increased blood pressure, raised fasting blood glucose, elevated triglycerides, and abdominal obesity. There is a growing evidence of the role of l-carnosine in improving lipid profile and enhancement of the antioxidant activity. However,...
