In this study, we assessed the prognostic efficacy and feasibility of combined arterial resection (AR) for locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC), and aimed to identify significant prognostic factors for patients who underwent combined AR.MethodsBetween 1981 and 2018, 733 consecutive patients who underwent pancreatic surgery for PC were identified. The 730 cases with detailed information were enrolled in the analysis.ResultsAmong 730 resected PC patients, 44 (6%) underwent AR including 21 hepatic (48%), 12 celiac (27%), five splenic (12%), four superior mesenteric (9%), and two other arteries (4%). The combined AR surge...

CONCLUSION: Our meta-analysis suggests that the TNF- α -308G>A polymorphism plays an important role in celiac disease susceptibility. However, our results are still needed to strengthen by further studies in different ethnicities and larger sample sizes.RESUMO CONTEXTO: H á evidências crescentes para mostrar que o TNF- α -308G>A polimorfismo pode ser um fator de risco para a doen ça celíaca, mas os resultados são inconsistentes. OBJETIVO: Por isto objetivou-se realizar uma meta-análise envolvendo estudos publicados até janeiro de 2019 para elucidar esta asso...

ConclusionsThis study demonstrates that the risk of developing a second IMID is significantly higher for individuals who have already experienced a first IMID in a large and contemporary US claims database. Certain pairs of IMIDs co-occur more frequently than others. The risk of developing subsequent IMIDs may be an important consideration for clinicians when selecting treatment strategies.FundingAbbvie.

In the United States and other developed countries, we have seen a shift over the past several decades in the types of illness people struggle with. Public health campaigns around vaccination, sanitation, and judicious use of antibiotics have largely eradicated many infectious illnesses. As the nature of disease has shifted to inflammatory conditions, we’ve seen a striking increase in allergy and autoimmune conditions such as diabetes, obesity, inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, and multiple sclerosis. The microbiome — the varied and teeming colonies of gut bacteria inside of us — may be helping ...

Abstract Background and objectives: Dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) is a blistering dermatosis, which shares common immunologic features with celiac disease (CD). The aim of the present study was to explore the performance of a panel of CD-related antibodies and IL-17A in Bulgarian patients with DH. Materials and Methods: Serum samples from 26 DH patients at mean age 53 ± 15 years and 20 healthy controls were assessed for anti-tissue transglutaminase (anti-tTG), anti-deamidated gliadin peptides (anti-DGP), anti-actin antibodies (AAA), and IL-17A by enzyme linked immuno-sorbent assay (ELISA), as well as anti-t...

Little is known about the immunopathogenic relationship between celiac disease and systemic autoimmune diseases, such as primary Sjögren’s syndrome and systemic sclerosis. But new research indicates that screening for celiac disease may benefit patients newly diagnosed with systemic autoimmune diseases, as well as supports the idea that celiac disease may accelerate the development of systemic autoimmune disease...
