CONCLUSION: The use of SGLT2 inhibitors in insulin treated T2D patients resulted in reduction of HbA1c, which was associated to weight loss, cHDL increase and SBP decrease. PMID: 30503071 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: The results obtained show a sub-optimal adherence to treatment for the 3chronic diseases studied. Adherence increased with the number of chronic diseases, while sex, age and number of drugs did not show a consistent effect. It is necessary to investigate if there are other factors that may influence therapeutic adherence, since improving adherence may have a greater impact on health than any progress in therapies.

CONCLUSIONS: Many patients were not meeting Japanese LDL-C target levels at the time of ACS, and a large proportion of patients meeting target levels developed ACS; therefore, more stringent management and further evaluation of the target LDL-C levels is warranted in high-risk patients and those with previous history of CAD.

ConclusionWe confirm no significant differences in the perioperative and oncological outcomes between off-clamp and on-clamp RPN. Avoided ischemia benefits renal function within 1-year follow-up after surgery. At longer follow-up, difference with on-clamp is softened.

Publication date: Available online 8 December 2018Source: Nutrition, Metabolism and Cardiovascular DiseasesAuthor(s): C. Pelusi, P. Altieri, A. Gambineri, A. Repaci, C. Cavazza, F. Fanelli, A.M. Morselli-Labate, U. Pagotto, R. PasqualiAbstractBackgrounds and aims: Excess body weight (EBW) is the most prevalent nutritional disorder among adolescents worldwide. Identifying determinants to EBW may help in finding new intervention strategies. Behavioral, socio-economic, educational and demographic correlates of EBW were examined in a population of Italian adolescents, separately for males and females.Methods and results1,039 m...

Medtech companies are not that “interested” in M&A anymore, according to a survey taken during a recent MD+DI webinar discussing Medtech Trends and Adaptation. Arda Ural, Phd, a partner, transaction advisory services practice for Ernst and Young (EY) was the presenter for the webinar. When asked whether or not companies expected to pursue M&A in the coming months about 77% of the participants answered no and 23% an answered yes. This has been a strong year for mergers and acquisitions, as companies have had a lot of cash-on-hand to put to use. Boston Scientific has been one of the busier...

ConclusionsNot all glucometers may be suitable for GDM screening as only three were accurate compared to the reference test and then only at fasting of the OGTT. Importantly, laboratory fasting glucose was diagnostic of GDM in 80% of cases in this study population.

This study shows that lifespan-extending conditions can slow molecular changes associated with an epigenetic clock in mice livers. Diverse interventions that extend mouse lifespan suppress shared age-associated epigenetic changes at critical gene regulatory regions Age-associated epigenetic changes are implicated in aging. Notably, age-associated DNA methylation changes comprise a so-called aging "clock", a robust biomarker of aging. However, while genetic, dietary and drug interventions can extend lifespan, their impact on the epigenome is uncharacterised. To fill this knowledge gap, we defined...

Discussion Klinefelter syndrome (KS) is a common genetic abnormaly with a prevalence of 1 in ~650 male births. It was first described in 1942 by Dr. Harry Klinefelter. It is associated with at least one extra X chromosome with the most common karyotype (~80% of patients) being 47 XXY. Other karyotypes are seen along with mosaicism. It is believed that although it is very prevalent, only about 25-33% of people with KS are identified. About 10% are identified before puberty with the rest usually identified because of hypogonadism and tall stature especially in teenage years or due to infertility in adulthood. KS is diagnosed...

Discussion Turner Syndrome (TS) is one of the most common genetic disorders in females. It was first described by Dr. Henry H. Turner in 1938. It affects 1 in 2000-2500 births and ~70,000 girls and women have TS in the United States. It is caused by the absence of all or part of the second X chromosome. The most common variation is 45X which affects about 50% of TS patients and usually has the most complications, but there are other variations. Phenotypes vary and therefore the age of diagnosis varies. Mean age of diagnosis unfortunately is 15 years. Diagnosis is made by chromosomal analysis. Haploinsufficiency of the SHOX...
