Conclusions: GCP patients (otherwise systemically healthy) were characterized by increased Th17-proinflammatory cell phenotype positive for the IL-23 receptor in peripheral blood. The proportion of Th17 cells that are negative for the IL-23 receptor in the peripheral blood of systemically healthy patients seemed to be unaffected by the presence or absence of chronic periodontitis.
CONCLUSIONS: These findings emphasize the concern that psychiatric patients present an altered metabolic profile and that they do not receive adequate treatment for metabolic disruptions. Presence of metabolic disturbances should be routinely assessed, and adequate follow-up is needed to intervene early after illness onset. PMID: 32237298 [PubMed - in process]
Anti‑glycolipid disorder effect of epigallocatechin‑3‑gallate on high‑fat diet and STZ‑induced T2DM in mice. Mol Med Rep. 2020 Mar 26;: Authors: Ren Z, Yang Z, Lu Y, Zhang R, Yang H Abstract Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) is beneficial for inhibiting dyslipidemia and reducing hyperlipidemic risk. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the glycolipid regulatory effects and potential mechanisms of EGCG in a high‑fat diet and streptozotocin‑induced type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) mouse model. The results demonstrated that EGCG can decrease blood glucose levels and i...
CONCLUSION: Despite a reduction in the overall burden of depressive symptoms, the migrant subgroup population has a higher probability of presenting these symptoms. Mental health strategies for migrant women are a priority in Peru. PMID: 32237886 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: Huang YM, Shiyanbola OO, Chan HY, Smith PD Abstract Background: Type 2 diabetes (T2D) incurs tremendous health cost associated with various complications due to poor diabetes control. Medication adherence, which is correlated with patients' health literacy, should be consistently practiced achieving optimal diabetes control. A deeper understanding of the specific communication and psychosocial factors related to medication-taking behaviors across different levels of health literacy among people with T2D will guide the development of effective interventions and strategies to enhance medication adherence.Obj...
Conclusions: The home-visit simulation scenario was effective in providing students with a problem-solving experience in conditions similar to reality.Clinical Evidence: Further research is needed to develop various types of community simulation scenarios to enhance competency for community health practice.

AbstractDiabetes mellitus is one of the major public health problems worldwide. Considerable recent evidence suggests that the cellular reduction-oxidation (redox) imbalance leads to oxidative stress and subsequent occurrence and development of diabetes and related complications by regulating certain signaling pathways involved in β-cell dysfunction and insulin resistance. Reactive oxide species (ROS) can also directly oxidize certain proteins (defined as redox modification) involved in the diabetes process. There are a number of potential problems in the clinical application of antioxidant therapies including poor so...
ConclusionsParticipants with T2D showed an accelerated decline in muscle mass compared to non-diabetic participants. Insulin therapy was associated with preserved muscle mass, but not muscle function parameters, indicating a discrepancy between muscle mass and function in this high-risk population.
CONCLUSION: Our report indicated the relationship between MetS factors and Vitamin D deficiency. The ex-vivo findings emphasize its impact on maintaining regulated immune balance. PMID: 32238143 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
