Iron Deficiency, Anemia, and Low Vitamin B-12 Serostatus in Middle Childhood Are Associated with Behavior Problems in Adolescent Boys: Results from the Bogot á School Children Cohort

AbstractBackgroundIron deficiency (ID) in infancy is related to subsequent behavior problems. The effects of micronutrient status in middle childhood are uncertain.ObjectiveThe aim of the study was to examine the associations of micronutrient status biomarkers in middle childhood with externalizing and internalizing behavior problems in adolescence.MethodsWe assessed whether ID (ferritin

Discussion: Incomplete septal cirrhosis is an uncommon cause of non-cirrhotic portal hypertension. Its definition is not well known, morphological and pathophysiological. We have not found published cases of post-RT ascites secondary to this pathology, described as possibly associated with drugs, immune alterations, infections, hypercoagulability and genetic predisposition.

CONCLUSIONS: Sole CIBH without anemia/abdominal mass yields a 2.5% colorectal malignancy rate from 2-week wait referrals. Those with PLS had a 0.17% yield of proximal tumors. A straight-to-test FS in this low risk group would be clinically effective with potential annual savings of more than £50 000. PMID: 30898041 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Contributors : James J Bieker ; Antanas PlanutisSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiensCongenital dyserythropoietic anemia (CDA) type IV is caused by a heterozygous mutation, Glu325Lys (E325K), in the KLF1 transcription factor. A molecular understanding of this disease is absent, partly due to its rarity. We expanded erythroid cells from a patient ’s peripheral blood and analyzed its global expression pattern. We find that a large number of erythroid pathways are disrupted, particularly those related to membrane transport, globin regulation, and iron utilization. The al...

The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence, timing, risk factors, and effect of cardiac complications in spine surgery by using a national database, the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program. METHODS: Patients who underwent spine surgery in the 2005 to 2012 National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database were identified. The...

Anemia and thrombocytopenia occur frequently in preterm neonates. Anemia can be physiologic, but is mostly caused by iatrogenic blood sampling. Thrombocytopenia may be present at birth due to intrauterine disorders, but is most commonly detected after birth following bacterial infection. There is no consensus regarding optimal hemoglobin and platelet thresholds for transfusion. An increasing number of studies suggest that restrictive transfusion guidelines may be preferable to liberal guidelines. Better markers to assess the need of transfusions are needed as well as the implementation of effective preventive measures, suc...
