The role of NAFLD in extrahepatic malignancies: the importance of ruling out the effect of obesity

We read with great interests the article by Gi-Ae et al[1]. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease(NAFLD) is strongly associated with metabolic disorders such as insulin resistance, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases which implies that NAFLD might have an important part in extrahepatic complications. Gi-Ae et al not only confirmed that NAFLD is closely related to the development of hepatocellular carcinoma but also demonstrated that NAFLD is a risk factor for extrahepatic malignancies such as male colorectal carcinoma and female breast cancer.

Authors: Kamstra R, Pilon D, Lefebvre P, Emond B, Joshi K Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare treatment patterns and Medicaid spending between schizophrenia patients initiating once-monthly paliperidone palmitate (PP1M) and oral atypical antipsychotics (OAA) within four comorbid populations: cardiovascular disease (CVD), diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. METHODS: Five-state Medicaid data identified comorbid adults with schizophrenia initiating PP1M or OAA (index) from 09/2009 balanced with inverse probability of treatment weighting. Chi-squared and t-tests compared index antipsychotic (AP) exposure (no gap>90 ...

Authors: Amr KS, Abdelmawgoud H, Ali ZY, Shehata S, Raslan HM Abstract BACKGROUND: Macrovascular complications are the main cause of morbidity and mortality among the diabetic patients. MicroRNAs (miRNAs), a family of small non-coding RNAs, play vital roles in the regulation of blood glucose level and the concurrent cardiovascular complications of type 2 diabetes. We hypothesized that plasma miR-126 and miR-210 are linked to coronary artery disease (CAD) in these diabetes patients. METHODS: Fasting blood samples were collected from 20 healthy volunteers and 100 patients with diabetes (54 patients without CAD an...

Authors: Zhao J, Guo N, Zhang L, Wang L Abstract INTRODUCTION: CA125 has poor sensitivity and low specificity for detecting early ovarian cancer. Serum ferritin is elevated in many malignancies. We evaluated the performance of ferritin alone and in combination with CA125 as a diagnostic tool to detect epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). METHODS: CA125 and ferritin were detected in the serum of 50 healthy control (HC), 50 women with benign gynaecological conditions and 124 women with EOC. The relationship between serum ferritin and CA125 and each of the clinicopathological parameters was assessed, and their diagnos...

Authors: Petrou P Abstract INTRODUCTION: The therapeutic categories of Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors of Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Receptors, mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitors and Programmed Death-1 inhibitors have transformed the treatment of metastatic renal cell cancer. Nevertheless, this comes at an increased cost, in tandem with similar fiscal pressures in the broader oncology sector, which may jeopardize the sustainability of health systems. Areas covered To this direction, the economic evaluation of these agents is essential for rational and efficient resource allocation. The aim of this study is...
