Novel effects of phytoestrogenic soy isoflavones on serum calcium and chloride in premenopausal women: A 2-year double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study

Soy phytoestrogens are potential alternatives to postmenopausal hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Adverse effects of HRT such as myocardial infarction, stroke, and pulmonary embolism are mediated by calcium-induced signaling.

ConclusionPatients with ASA grade > II, greater co-morbidity burden and prolonged operative times were likely to experience adverse events and have a longer length of stay. Surgeons can utilize this data to risk stratify patients so that appropriate pre-operative and post-operative medical optimization can take place.

MA Abstract AIMS: Syncope is a common phenomenon in the general population. Although most of the causes are of benign origin, some comorbidities are accompanied by high mortality. We aimed to compare the in-hospital mortality of patients with syncope related to different comorbities and investigate the impact of syncope in patients with atrial fibrillation/flutter (AF). METHODS: The nationwide inpatient sample of Germany of the years 2011-2014 was used for this analysis. Patients with syncope (ICD-code R55) were stratified by presence of selected comorbidities. Additionally, AF patients with and without sync...

Authors: Yarlagadda M, Shen M, Abraham A, Mousavi I, Sethi MK Abstract The purpose of this study was to identify those complications for which patients with adverse cardiac events are at risk within the 30-day postoperative period following treatment oforthopaedic trauma cases. This was a retrospective cohort study of orthopaedic trauma patients in the United States between 2006 and 2013. A total of 56,336 patients meeting any one of 89 CPT codes in the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database were used. The main outcome measure was myocardial infarction or cardiac arrest ...

Introduction: Chemotherapy backbones with immunomodulatory drugs have become the standard of care for the treatment of multiple myeloma (MM). Despite improved survival outcomes, thrombotic complications remain a concern especially in the older patients with co-morbidities. A meta-analysis showed that lenalidomide might be associated with lower rate of thromboembolism than thalidomide-containing regimen in patients with newly diagnosed MM with (0.7 vs. 2.6 per 100-patient-cycle) or without prophylaxis (0.8 vs. 4.1 per 100-patient-cycle) (JTH 2011;9:653). As thalidomide is still commonly used outside of the United States, it...

Conclusion: Overall, home based primary care seems to be a promising alternative for pts with SCD. It had a significant impact on patient quality of care and may improve prescription adherence, but more data are needed to determine if it has an effect on healthcare utilization for pts with SCD.DisclosuresMoore: Ohio State University College of Medicine: Research Funding.

This study utilizes a national electronic health record (EHR) database to understand clinical outcomes with use of second-line treatments including: thrombopoietin receptor agonists (specifically, eltrombopag and romiplostim), rituximab, and splenectomy.METHODS: Utilizing the Optum EHR database, we identified patients who initiated a second-line treatment from Jan. 1, 2009 to Sep. 30, 2016 for primary or unspecified ITP. Additionally, patients included in the analysis had the following characteristics: 18 years or older; previous treatment with corticosteroids or immune globulin products; and active in the database for at ...

Background. Imatinib, the first BCR/ABL kinase inhibitor, has drastically changed the chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) scenario improving the rate of responses and long-term outcome. The aim of our analysis was to assess, after a median follow-up of 10.2 years (range 5.8-14.8), the long-term efficacy and safety of imatinib treatment in a monocentric cohort of CML patients treated outside of clinical trials.Methods. We retrospectively analyzed a series of 458 CML patients treated with imatinib frontline or after interferon (IFN) failure at a single center between 2000 and 2016. Long-term analysis included overall survival (OS...

ConclusionsIn this pilot study of 50 patients, low-dose apixaban was safe and well tolerated as thromboprophylaxis for patients with MM receiving IMiDs. No patients experienced VTE, major hemorrhage, stroke, or MI. Further randomized studies are needed to validate apixaban as a standard primary prevention anti-thrombotic strategy for patients with MM receiving IMiDs.DisclosuresMoslehi: Bristol-Myers Squibb: Consultancy, Research Funding.
