Higher tumor mass and lower adipose mass are associated with colon‑26 adenocarcinoma‑induced cachexia in male, female and ovariectomized mice. Oncol Rep. 2019 Mar 20;: Authors: Banh T, Snoke D, Cole RM, Angelotti A, Schnell PM, Belury MA Abstract Cachexia is responsible for nearly 20% of all cancer‑related deaths, yet effective therapies to prevent or treat the disease are lacking. Clinical studies have shown that male patients lose weight at a faster rate than females. Additionally, an 'obesity paradox' may exist where excess adiposity may confer survival to patients with cancer cachexia. To fur...

Rothbard, Miguel Constancia, Ionel Sandovici, Tara Cominski, Kevin Pang, Nan Gao, Teresa L. Wood, Steven W. LevisonSummaryTissue-specific stem cells have unique properties and growth requirements, but a small set of juxtacrine and paracrine signals have been identified that are required across multiple niches. Whereas insulin-like growth factor II (IGF-II) is necessary for prenatal growth, its role in adult stem cell physiology is largely unknown...

CONCLUSIONS: We found no significant difference in rates of death or Stage 4 events and virological failure in patients with RVL monitoring compared to those monitored with a TVL strategy after three years of follow-up. Viral suppression rates were high overall and there were few study events among patients alive and on ART after six months, limiting the study's power to detect a difference among study arms. Nonetheless, these data suggest that the choice of VL monitoring strategy may have less impact on patient outcomes compared to efforts to reduce early mortality and improve ART retention.

Authors: Wang D, Hatahet M, Wang Y, Liang H, Bazikian Y, Bray CL Abstract PURPOSE: Since the publication of the 2017 ACC/AHA hypertension guideline, few studies have analyzed the epidemiology and management of hypertension across many heterogeneous subgroups in the US. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed the data collected by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) from 1999 to 2016. Participants greater than 20 years of age, who had valid blood pressure measurements, were included in the study. A comprehensive analysis of 14 population subgroups was done to systematically examine how hyper...

Publication date: Available online 21 March 2019Source: Food Science and Human WellnessAuthor(s): Chenggang Zhang, Wenjing Gong, Zhihui Li, Dawen Gao, Yan GaoAbstractHuman wellness is the ultimate goal of our efforts in improving the human life. Special foods are undoubtedly important in achieving human wellness. However, overeating significantly leads to obesity and diabetes. These chronic diseases will in turn affect the human wellness. Therefore, “dietary restriction and proper exercise” were introduced in the human daily life. Different foods cause various effects on the human health. The diversification of...

AbstractThe present study investigated the effects of infertility on Chinese women ’s life satisfaction. Infertile women (n = 466) who were seeking medical help completed a survey that included the Fertility Problem Inventory (FPI), the Dyadic Adjustment Questionnaire (DAS), the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC), the Satisfaction with Life Scale, and demographic variables.

Conclusion: We think that exposures to hazardous substances migrating from FCAs require more attention. We recommend a) limiting the number and types of chemicals authorized for manufacture and b) developing novel approaches for assessing the safety of chemicals in FCAs, including unidentified chemicals that form during or after production. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP644 Received: 10 June 2016 Revised: 08 June 2017 Accepted: 09 June 2017 Published: 11 September 2017 Address correspondence to J.
