Authors: Barreiro E, Jaitovich A Abstract Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) experience several systemic manifestations such skeletal muscle dysfunction with and without muscle mass loss. Moreover, frequent comorbidities such as nutritional abnormalities, heart failure, and pulmonary hypertension, which are frequently associated with COPD may further contribute to skeletal muscle mass loss and dysfunction. Muscle dysfunction impairs the patients' exercise capacity and quality of life as daily life activities may be hampered by this problem. Importantly, impaired muscle function and mass loss...

The recent suicides of highly regarded fashion designer Kate Spade and television celebrity chef and author Anthony Bourdain remind us this mental health crisis can touch anyone. Cancer patients are no exception. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), suicide rates between 1999 and 2016 have risen more than 30 percent in half of the country and by nearly 60 percent in some states. This trend is particularly worrisome for cancer patients because this group has a higher suicide risk than the general public. For mesothelioma patients and the people who care for them, one part of this picture deser...

AbstractEarly detection of mild pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) based on clinical evaluation and echocardiography remains quite challenging. In addition to enhanced right ventricular (RV) assessment, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging may accurately reflect deleterious remodeling and increased stiffness of the central pulmonary arteries based on pulsatility, or percent change of the PA during the cardiac cycle. The purpose of this study is to assess the utility of measuring PA pulsatility by CMR as a potential early maker in PAH. We hypothesize that pulsatility may help discriminate mild PAH from normal control...

ConclusionSubjects with dipstick-determined trace proteinuria showed intermediate risk of having MetS, hypertension, and diabetes between negative and positive proteinuria in any eGFR category in a large general population. Thus, MetS components should be checked for subjects with trace proteinuria even in those with normal eGFR for the early prevention of cardiovascular diseases.

Elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP) is a serious adverse effect of glucocorticoid (GC) therapy. Increased extracellular matrix (ECM) accumulation and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress in the trabecular meshwork (TM) is associated with GC-induced IOP elevation. However, the molecular mechanisms by which GCs induce ECM accumulation and ER stress in the TM have not been determined. Here, we show that a potent GC, dexamethasone (Dex), activates transforming growth factor β (TGFβ) signaling, leading to GC-induced ECM accumulation, ER stress, and IOP elevation. Dex increased both the precursor and bioactive forms o...
