Substance found in red wine 'helps fight ageing'

Conclusion Resveratrol has been of interest to anti-ageing scientists for many years and researchers have previously shown it may be linked to a slowing of the decline in thinking and movement, at least in rodents. This study suggests a possible way this might happen. But the results don't tell us anything about what happens in humans. They suggest this substance may be useful for further research in humans at some point. They certainly don't provide a reason to drink gallons of red wine, in the hope of seeing an anti-ageing effect. Drinking too much alcohol is a sure-fire way to speed up deterioration of thinking skills, and can cause brain damage. Too much alcohol in the long term is linked to several cancers, heart disease, stroke and liver disease. Find out whether you're drinking too much, and get tips about cutting down.

The abnormal growth of cells in the brain is known as brain tumor. A brain tumor is a kind of disease that can hit children, adults, and older adults. In this work, a proposed method for brain tumor detection and classification using MATLAB and based on magnetic resonance imaging plays an essential role in the brain-tumor disease diagnostic application that is based on manual and automatic detection. Moreover, various kinds of tumors exist so it is complicated to detect, and thus it is hard to make decisions. Correct segmentation and image enhancement give an accurate classification of brain tumor types. A probabilistic ne...

Authors: Fallah J, Olszewski AJ Abstract OBJECTIVES: To examine the use of splenectomy, chemotherapy, and subsequent overall survival (OS) in contemporary patients with splenic lymphomas. METHODS: We analyzed records of 6450 patients with various splenic lymphomas recorded in the National Cancer Data Base (2004-2013). Survival was compared using Mantel-Byer test to account for guarantee-time bias, stratified by age, sex, comorbidities, and lymphoma stage. RESULTS: Splenectomy rate was overall 58%, and varied from 49% in splenic marginal zone (SMZL) to 77% in follicular lymphoma (FL). It significantly decrea...

CONCLUSIONS: Although DM was the disease most commonly associated with PUs and NAs, chronic hyperglycemia may not have been the major underlying risk factor. The major risk covariates are sensation loss from polyneuropathy, old age, obesity, repetitive foot injury, and inadequate foot care or treatment. Physicians and other healthcare providers can help by identifying patients at risk and instituting measures such as adequate foot care to decrease these risks.

Authors: Peixoto A, Martins Rocha T, Santos-Antunes J, Aguiar F, Bernardes M, Vaz C, Pereira P, Macedo G Abstract The authors report the case of a 76 year-old man with rheumatoid arthritis treated with prednisolone and etanercept. The patient was seen for persistent changes in liver tests lasting for six months, with a mixed pattern. The patient denied intake of new drugs or dietary/herbal supplements. Imaging studies showed mild steatosis. Additional study for chronic liver diseases only revealed positivity for anti-nuclear antibodies. Liver biopsy revealed noncaseating granulomas in some portal tracts. Consequent...

Authors: De Vloo C, Nevens F Abstract Pruritus is a common, troublesome symptom in patients with cholestatic liver diseases, especially frequent in intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) and in primary biliary cholangitis (PBC). Cholestatic associated pruritus can have profound effects on the quality of life. The underlying mechanism is still poorly understood. Severe potential pruritogens have been discussed, such as bile salts, opioids, steroid and lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), but none of these are considered as key mediators. Because of this unraveling pathophysiology the treatment of hepatogenic pruritus o...

Authors: Komen N, Dewint P, Van den Broeck S, Pauli S, de Schepper H Abstract The field of rectal cancer treatment is a dynamic and changing field, due to better understanding of the pathology and new medical treatment options, but perhaps mostly due to innovations in the surgical approach. Surgery is the cornerstone for rectal cancer treatment. Currently, Total Mesorectal Excision is the gold standard. After evolution towards laparoscopic TME, improving technology has led to the development of platforms that allow transanal TME and robotic TME. In addition, local excision can be performed safer and more accurately...
