Authors: Wipf M, Bok-Beaube C, Palmowski-Wolfe A Abstract Cyclic strabismus is a rare disease of unknown origin. If untreated, it leads to manifest strabismus with the risk of amblyopia in children. Treatment is generally surgical. Here we report on three children in whom cyclic esotropia was successfully treated with one bimedial injection of 5 IU Botox®. All patients remained orthotropic with good stereo functions at the last follow-ups at 16, 11, and 8 months. Botulinum toxin offered a minimally invasive treatment option in these patients.

CONCLUSIONS: In summary, the short-term cost-cost comparison demonstrates that steroid implants can provide significant cost savings versus in-label anti-VEGF treatment for center-involving diabetic macular edema. Single application of the long-lasting Fluocinolone acetonide implant is the most cost-efficient in-label treatment option. PMID: 29452450 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsThe successful dexamethasone-free regimen clearly shows that dexamethasone is not a requisite component in treating multiple myeloma, and it can be substituted with clarithromycin. This regimen is particularly useful for treating patients with multiple myeloma associated with diabetes mellitus.

Abstract Background: Obesity induces dyslipidemia, hypertension, glucose intolerance, and inflammatory state, which results in atherogenic processes, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. We usually use body composition indices, such as body mass index (BMI), body fat percentage (BFP), waist circumference-height ratio (WHtR), and waist-hip ratio (WHR) to reflect the obesity. The aim of this large population-based cross-sectional study was to investigate the associations between body composition indices and metabolic parameters in Chinese adults. Methods: A total of 12,018 Chinese adults were included. Body co...

In this study published in July 2017, researchers looked at the vitamin D levels and cognitive function in patients who experienced psychosis. They found an association between low levels of vitamin D and decreased processing speed and verbal fluency. The authors suggested the next step should be randomized controlled trials of vitamin D supplementation in those with psychosis and vitamin D deficiency. Another study, published in Psychiatry Research in August 2017, looked at whether vitamin B12, homocysteine folic acid, and vitamin D might be connected to childhood obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Fifty-two children an...

This study was designed to evaluate the changes of RLX in patients with unstable angina (UA) complicated with various categories of abnormal glucose metabolism.Patients who confirmed UA by angiographic and clinical standard were grouped according to the glucose metabolism status with oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and medical history categorized as normal, prediabetes, newly diagnosed type 2 DM (T2DM), and previously diagnosed T2DM. Serum RLX-2 was measured and islet β-cell function was evaluated. The severity of the coronary arterial lesions was evaluated with Syntax Scores.Serum RLX-2 was significantly higher in...

Conclusion: Diabetes patients with PAD and exertional leg pain have imbalance in angiogenic growth factors, indicating impaired angiogenesis. In patients with exertional leg pains, Ang-2 may be an important biomarker. PMID: 29445546 [PubMed]

In this study, we examine if the incidence of myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke differ from that of the general population.MethodsData from the German Acromegaly Registry in seven specialized endocrine centres were analysed (n  = 479, 56% female, 46 years old at diagnosis, 5549 person-years from diagnosis). Standardized incidence ratios (SIR) were calculated as compared to the general population.ResultsMI and stroke incidences were very close to those of the general population with an SIR (95% CI) of 0.89 (0.47 –1.52, p = 0.80) for MI and 1.17 (0.66–1.93, p =&thi...
