In conclusion, documentation is important, a critical part of advocacy and the development process at the larger scale. It isn't just words, but rather a vital structural flow of information from one part of the larger community to another, necessary to sustain progress in any complex field. We would all do well to remember this - and to see that building this documentation is an activity in which we can all pitch in to help. Evidence Suggests that, at Least in Earlier Stages, Alzheimer's Disease Blocks Rather than Destroys Memories https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2017/07/evidence-suggests-that-at-least-in-earlier-stages-alzheimers-disease-blocks-rather-than-destroys-memories/ For years now, evidence has accumulated to suggest that Alzheimer's disease blocks memory retrieval rather than destroying memories, at least in the earlier stages prior to the onset of widespread destruction of neurons. Today's research is more of the same. This and related results raise the hope that success in any of the mainstream efforts to treat the causes of this disease should restore much of the cognitive function lost to the condition. Of course it is worth recalling that Alzheimer's patients rarely suffer Alzheimer's alone: it usually arrives alongside one or more other forms of neurodegeneration, each with distinct mechanisms that cause neurons to malfunction or be destroyed. This is in part because Alzheimer's disease is to some degree a lifestyle condition; not as grea...
CONCLUSION: TAVR with a balloon-expandable system is safe and effective and can be used for patients with severe AS in China. It requires careful patient selection and preoperative assessment so as to reduce the 30-day postoperative mortality rate. PMID: 29236149 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: Increased cyclic right atrial volumes and mild alterations in right atrial functional properties could be demonstrated in idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome patients. PMID: 29234843 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
In conclusion, hypothyroidism due to thyroid developmental anomaly should be taken into consideration in case of hypothyroidism and normal thyroid autoantibodies in a patient at any age. PMID: 29238947 [PubMed - in process]
Abstract Short stature is the main problem that paediatric endocrinologists have to grapple with. Endocrine disorders account for only 5% of patients with short stature, but this is still one of the most common causes of reports to the endocrine clinic and hospitalisation in the endocrine department. A properly functioning growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor (GH/IGF) axis is one of the most important factors in proper growth. A lot of genetic defects in this axis lead to syndromes marked by impaired growth, like Laron syndrome, muta-tions in the STAT5B, insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1), and insulin-like g...
In this report, we describe the first case, to our knowledge, of congenital Zika syndrome with concomitant critical congenital heart disease. The mother had a confirmed ZIKV infection in the first trimester of pregnancy. Fetal ultrasonography at 31 weeks of gestation revealed cerebral cortical calcifications and hypoplastic left heart syndrome. The severity of brain involvement was assessed by postnatal magnetic resonance imaging and echocardiogram, and palliative surgery was performed. The ethical dimensions of this infant's clinical management are discussed. ZIKV is known to affect neural progenitor cells, but whether it...
ARTHRITIS affects about 10 million people in the UK, including people of all ages. Taking between 50mg and 100mg of this daily supplement could help to reduce joint pain and inflammation, it ’s been claimed.
