FergusonBackgroundBody mass index (BMI) is not routinely taken into consideration for risk stratification prior to esophagectomy. Extremes of BMI are associated with adverse surgical outcomes in a variety of surgical specialties. We assessed the relationship of BMI to outcomes after esophagectomy for cancer.MethodsPatients in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons General Thoracic Surgery Database (2009 to 2016) who underwent elective esophagectomy for cance...

AbstractPeroxisomes are ubiquitous and highly dynamic organelles that play a central role in the metabolism of lipids and reactive oxygen species. The importance of peroxisomal metabolism is illustrated by severe peroxisome biogenesis disorders in which functional peroxisomes are absent or disorders caused by single peroxisomal enzyme deficiencies. These multisystemic diseases manifest specific clinical and biochemical disturbances that originate from the affected peroxisomal pathways. An emerging role of the peroxisome has been identified in many types of diseases, including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders, aging, obe...

Authors: Sezik M, Gurpinar E, Zayim N Abstract The aim was to perform a document content analysis of the subject titles in the undergraduate obstetrics and gynaecology (OG) curricula in Turkish medical schools regarding the National Core Curriculum revised in 2014 (NCC-2014). Two mini-focus group discussions with four voluntary OG faculty members in each session and one of the authors as the moderator were employed within a 1-week time frame to identify the primary (n = 36) and secondary (n = 15) NCC-2014 OG titles that were then compared for the alignment with the curricula of the vario...

Publication date: Available online 19 September 2018Source: Acta Pharmaceutica Sinica BAuthor(s): Jingxin Liu, Yitao Wang, Ligen LinAbstractObesity is increasing in an alarming rate worldwide, which causes higher risks of some diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer. Current therapeutic approaches, either pancreatic lipase inhibitors or appetite suppressors, are generally of limited effectiveness. Brown adipose tissue (BAT) and beige cells dissipate fatty acids as heat to maintain body temperature, termed non-shivering thermogenesis; the activity and mass of BAT and beige cells are negatively...

ConclusionsIncidence of RCC varies worldwide. Within the several RCC risk factors identified, smoking, obesity, and hypertension are most strongly associated with RCC. In individuals at a higher risk of RCC, the cost effectiveness of a screening programme needs to be assessed on a country-specific level due to geographic heterogeneity in incidence and mortality rates, costs, and management implications. Owing to the low rates of RCC, implementation of accurate biomarkers appears to be mandatory.Patient summaryThe probability of harbouring kidney cancer is higher in developed countries and among smokers, obese individuals, ...

(Carnegie Institution for Science) Body organs such as the intestine and ovaries undergo structural changes in response to dietary nutrients that can have lasting impacts on metabolism, as well as cancer susceptibility, according to Carnegie's Rebecca Obniski, Matthew Sieber, and Allan Spradling. 'Children born to malnourished mothers often struggle with obesity later in life and our findings could explain the physiology of why that happens,' Obniski explained.

Physical activity, healthy nutrition and lack of stress are the three most important components of health. Inadequate levels of physical activity, obesity, unhealthy diet and chronic stress (e.g. tobacco, excessive alcohol and other harmful physical, chemical, biological, psychological and social stress) can induce an unhealthy and unhappy life that leads to chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, cancer and Alzheimer's and to premature death. The mechanisms are generally thought to involve increased oxidative stress, inflammation, epigenetic changes and metabolic changes.
