ConclusionsAdjustment of the cfPWV value may be necessary for a more accurate distinction between lower and higher risk group of patients for white matter microstructural injury related to arterial stiffness. Targeting the highest risk group for prevention methods may, in turn, help preserve brain health and cognitive functions.

This study is a prospective, exploratory, qualitative analysis. Twenty midwives from Grenoble Alpes University Hospital who took care of one of the selected patients participated in this study. Two women had schizophrenia and one bipolar disorder. Interviews realized with a semi-structured guide were fully transcribed, anonymized and thematically analyzed. Topics have been structured according to the number of occurrences to build a thematic tree. RESULTS: Midwives felt insecure and resourceless when the postpartum care was unclear, insufficiently anticipated and in case of a danger for the women or the children. They ...

Conclusions The 13-item DBII scale is appropriately short and possesses satisfactory validity and reliability for both insulin-naive and insulin-treated patients with T2DM. Healthcare providers may use this scale as a checklist to guide clinical discussions related to insulin therapy with both insulin-naive and insulin-treated patients with T2DM across time.

In this study, we investigated the effects of BPA on skeletal muscle mitochondrial function and insulin sensitivity. L6 myotubes were treated with BPA (1 nM–105 nM) during the last 24 h of differentiation. Following exposure to 105 nM of BPA, resting and maximal oxygen consumption rates were decreased, whereas mitochondrial proton leak was increased. Overall metabolic activity, measured by redox ability, was decreased in L6 myotubes exposed to 105 nM of BPA. At this concentration, insulin-stimulated glucose uptake was increased, which corresponded to an increased phosphorylation of the insulin signaling pro...
