Authors: Zhang S, Liu L, Huang YQ, Lo K, Feng YQ Abstract Background: It is uncertain how serum uric acid (SUA) associated with all-cause mortality among people with normal weight, hence was explored in this study.Methods: We enrolled participants from 1999 to 2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) that had mortality status through 31 December 2015. We estimated adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) for all-cause mortality using Cox proportional hazard models, and propensity score analyses were performed. We also performed restricted cubic splines to demonstrate the ...

Authors: Magee DE, Singal RK Abstract Our objective is to provide an up-to-date summary of current literature on the indications for androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), ways in which ADT is used, and the main side effects associated with its use. MEDLINE (Pubmed) was searched for relevant papers published from database inception to May 1, 2019 for studies evaluating the use of ADT and its associated adverse events. ADT is a mainstay in the treatment of prostate cancer and is used throughout the disease course. While predominantly used in the metastatic setting, ADT has a role in the treatment of localized disease a...

In his Presidential Address delivered at the American Urological Association (AUA) annual meeting in San Francisco in 1994, Dr. Abraham T.K. Cockett described his vision for “bridging the world through research and urological education.”1 The idea of a bridge as a connection between distant people and places, strengthened and supported by the pillars of research and education, was foundational to Dr. Cockett's conception of the contributions of urologists to the bro ader world. Indeed, over his pioneering career in which he collaborated with scientists from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and ...

CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Results suggested that administration of tulathromycin to pregnant ewes following exposure to C jejuni was effective in decreasing the number of C jejuni-induced abortions. Because of concerns regarding the development of macrolide resistance among Campylobacter strains, prophylactic use of tulathromycin in sheep is not recommended. PMID: 32101046 [PubMed - in process]
