Conclusions: PR in patients with end-stage lung disease awaiting lung transplantation on nocturnal NIV is feasible and is associated with improvements of exercise capacity and quality of life. Furthermore, despite more advanced lung disease, patients treated with NIV have an increased benefit of PR compared to patients without NIV while awaiting lung transplantation.Respiration

ABSTRACT Solid organ transplantation is a significant development in the treatment of chronic kidney, liver, heart and lung diseases. This therapeutic approach has increased patient survival and improved quality of life. New surgical techniques and immunosuppressive drugs have been developed to achieve better outcomes. However, the variety of neurological complications following solid organ transplantation is broad and carries prognostic significance. Patients may have involvement of the central or peripheral nervous system due to multiple causes that can vary depending on time of onset after the surgical procedure, the tr...

Conclusion In most cases, with large FTMH or holes after failed vitrectomy plus ILM peeling, ILM-TX allows a hole closure. Functional outcomes show stabilization and sometimes even a slight improvement. PMID: 29156470 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: With appropriate multidisciplinary care, women with cardiac transplants can have successful pregnancies. Although rates of fetal loss are low, these women continue to be at risk for graft rejection, preterm birth, other pregnancy-related complications, and cardiovascular death.

Authors: Tong G, Izquierdo P, Raashid RA Abstract Background: Neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's Disease (AD) are a global health issue primarily in the elderly. Although AD has been investigated using primary cultures, animal models and post-mortem human brain tissues, there are currently no effective treatments. Summary: With the advent of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) reprogrammed from fully differentiated adult cells such as skin fibroblasts, newer opportunities have arisen to study the pathophysiology of many diseases in more depth. It is envisioned that iPSCs could be used as a powerful ...

We report a 60‐year‐old man with late‐onset signs of cutaneous porphyria and accumulation in urine, plasma and faeces of type I porphyrin isomers characteristic of CEP. Analysis of DNA from peripheral leucocytes, skin and bone marrow aspirate showed that he was a heterozygous carrier of a Cys73Arg (c.217 T>C) mutation within UROS. Sequencing of cDNA from peripheral blood confirmed heterozygosity and expression of the normal allele. Measurement of UROS enzymatic activity in erythrocytes showed values ~70% of normal, indirectly indicating expression of the normal allele. Differently from other cases of late‐onset ...
