We report a case in which combination therapy with albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-paclitaxel) and gemcitabine converted unresectable pancreatic cancer with peritoneal metastases into resectable disease. The patient was a 71-year-old woman with anorexia. Enhanced abdominal computed tomography (CT) showed an atrophic pancreatic body and tail, dilated main pancreatic duct, peritoneal dissemination, portal vein stricture, bile duct stricture and wall thickening, and blockage of the right ureter. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer with peritoneal metastases. Curative resection was initially impossible. Combination therapy ...

A heightened sensitivity to social rejection might contribute towards the interpersonal difficulties and symptoms that characterise Anorexia Nervosa (AN). This paper examines the effect of Cognitive Bias Modification for Interpretation biases (CBM-I) training on a negative interpretation bias for ambiguous social scenarios that involve the risk of rejection and eating behaviour.

In this study the specificity of TSF in participants with anorexia nervosa (AN) and TAbF in participants with BPD was examined. 63 patients completed questionnaires assessing the manifestation of trait-TAbF and trait-TSF, as well as relevant psychopathology. Nonparametric conditional inference trees were used to test for cognitive disorder-specificity.

I have worked with hundreds of women who struggle with disordered eating and poor body image. Some clients obsessively track calories or Weight Watcher’s points.

Some have tried every fad diet. Some say mean things to themselves when they look in the mirror, in hopes that this will motivate change. Some have found a community — in Weight Watchers or Overeaters Anonymous — to hold them accountable or to reinforce their g...

Publication date: Available online 1 November 2017 Source:Best Practice & Research Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism Author(s): Kamani Liyanarachchi, Richard Ross, Miguel Debono The daily rhythm of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is regulated by the central clock in the suprachiasmatic nucleus. Cortisol, a glucocorticoid, acts as a secondary messenger between the central clock and the peripheral tissues. Changes in clock time, as seen in shift workers, alters the HPA axis and results in metabolic disturbances associated with ill health. Depression, anorexia nervosa and obstructive sleep apnoea, are ...

This study is aimed at assessing QTc and QTcd values in ANr adolescents with recent onset and drug free, as compared to subjects affected by psychiatric disorders other than ANr. We evaluated QTc and its dispersion (QTcd) in a population of 77 drug-free ANr female adolescents and compared to an equal number of healthy controls (H-CTRL) and pathological controls (P-CTRL, mixed psychiatric disorders). The QT determination was performed on a standard simultaneous 12-lead ECG in blind by a single experienced investigator. QTc was calculated by the Bazett ’s formula and QTcd was determined as the difference between the ma...

This study aimed to investigate the potential correlation between H. pylori infection and DGP. METHODS: In this study, 163 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and 175 nondiabetic patients who were treated in our department were divided into DGP, simple diabetes, non-DGP (NDG), and normal groups based on their conditions. The H. pylori infection rate in each group was calculated. H. pylori eradication therapy was performed for patients with H. pylori infection in each group. The eradication rates were compared between the groups, and the improvements in gastroparesis-associated symptoms were compared before and afte...
