Authors: Cúrdia Gonçalves T, Arieira C, Monteiro S, Rosa B, Moreira MJ, Cotter J Abstract BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS: Available scoring systems to assess the risk for major bleeding in patients on chronic anticoagulation seem inadequate in predicting higher diagnostic yields of small bowel capsule endoscopy (SBCE) or higher rebleeding rates in patients with suspected small bowel bleeding. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of the new ORBIT score in predicting positive findings of SBCE or higher rebleeding rates in chronically anticoagulated patients with suspected small bowel bleeding. ...

CONCLUSION: GS was common in IBD and associated with having had a recent flare. GS may be transient for some patients, whereby dietary recommendations during and after a flare could focus on the avoidance of specific food triggers with possible reintroduction of these foods over time. This study prompts further prospective investigation into the temporal evolution of GS in IBD. PMID: 29216767 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Prostate cancer risk-reducing dietary behaviour (i.e., less dairy products, less meat and more fish) was more common in the Italian region, whereas other risk-reducing lifestyle behaviours were more common in the German region. PMID: 29219783 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Kim C, Giaccone G Abstract INTRODUCTION: The mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway is intimately implicated in the molecular pathogenesis of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Aberrant MAPK signaling resulting from the upstream activating mutations converges on mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 1/2 (MEK1/2), making MEK inhibition an attractive strategy for the treatment of NSCLC. Several MEK inhibitors have demonstrated anticancer activity in patients with NSCLC. Areas covered: In this article, we discuss the biological rationale for the use of MEK inhibitors and summarize the clinical exp...

CONCLUSIONS: Acute neuropathy after ketoacidosis is rare complication and its pathomechanism is not clear. Patients with DKA require careful monitoring of neurological functions even after normalization of glycemic parameters. PMID: 29217500 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In vitro and in vivo study of commercial calcium phosphate cement HydroSet™. J Biomed Mater Res B Appl Biomater. 2018 Jan;106(1):21-30 Authors: Kent NW, Blunn G, Karpukhina N, Davis G, de Godoy RF, Wilson RM, Coathup M, Onwordi L, Quak WY, Hill R Abstract The commercial calcium phosphate cement, HydroSet™, was investigated in vitro, studying phase formation, compressive strength and setting time, followed by an ovine in vivo study to measure osseointegration, bone apposition and bone-to-graft contact. The X-ray diffraction and 31 P Magic Angle Spinning Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (MAS NMR) ...

Abstract Thermal therapy combined with chemotherapy is one of the advanced and efficient methods to eradicate cancer. In this work, we fabricated magnetically actuated smart textured (MAST) fibrous systems and studied their candidacy for cancer treatment. The polycaprolactone-Fe3 O4 based MAST fibers were fabricated using electrospinning technique. These MAST fibrous systems contained carbogenic quantum dots as a tracking agent and doxorubicin hydrochloride anticancer drug. Additionally, as fabricated MAST fibrous systems were able to deliver anticancer drug and heat energy simultaneously to kill HeLa cells in a 1...

Abstract A new method to deliver fluoride using biodegradable poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) microcapsules to suppress cariogenic bacterial growth during orthodontic treatment was investigated. A coaxial ultrasonic atomizer was used to encapsulate KF solution into microcapsules. The orthodontic adhesive resin disk containing fluoride loaded microcapsules (DFLM) was prepared by LED light curing. The microstructure of microcapsules, successful loading of KF, fracture strength, and shear bonding strength were assessed by FE-SEM, confocal laser scanning microscope, and general purpose testing machine, respectively. Flu...

Perkins, Ronald L. Cowan, Daniel O. Claassen, David H. Zald The fat mass and obesity associated gene (FTO) was the first gene identified by genome-wide association studies to correlate with higher body mass index (BMI) and increased odds of obesity. FTO remains the locus with the largest and most replicated effect on body weight, but the mechanism whereby FTO affects body weight and the development of obesity is not fully understood. Her...

ConclusionsTo the best of our knowledge, this is the first report about a gastric perforation after stereotactic body radiotherapy for lung tumors and it warns of serious complication of stereotactic body radiotherapy in not only centrally located but also peripherally located tumors like in this case.
