Publication date: Available online 18 April 2019Source: Journal of Sport and Health ScienceAuthor(s): Xin Luan, Xiangyang Tian, Haixin Zhang, Rui Huang, Na Li, Peijie Chen, Ru WangAbstractA growing understanding of the benefits of exercise over the past few decades has prompted researchers to take an interest in the possibilities of exercise therapy. Because each sport has its own set of characteristics and physiological complications that tend to appear during exercise training, the effects and underlying mechanisms of exercise remain unclear. Thus, the first step in probing exercise effects on different diseases is the s...

In this study, we sought to further characterize ILC2s in the kidney, their location within this organ and determine their functional role in IRI using a loss-of-function approach. Here, we found that kidney ILC2s constitutively express IL-5 and are primarily located in close proximity to the renal vasculature, within the adventitia. Additionally, we demonstrate that a reduction, deficiency or depletion of ILC2s had minimal impact on the severity of IRI. Whilst activation of ILC2s and the associated amplification of local type 2 immunity has been previously shown to reduce the deleterious consequences of AKI, our results r...

CONCLUSIONS: Using CBC design for the first time in a non-interventional ESA study with an electronic Patient Reported Outcome (ePRO) in an elderly population, these data showed that monthly injections and treatment efficacy were key patients' expectations relative to ESAs. CERA efficacy to maintain stable haemoglobin within the recommended range was confirmed in real-life conditions. PMID: 30962139 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: Abdominal pain was absent in 16% of LIP patients with autoimmune rheumatic diseases, and this absence was a poor prognostic factor in this cohort. Moreover, higher age, chronic kidney disease, systemic vasculitis, and LIP due to malignancy were associated with significantly increased mortality. Physicians should be aware of LIP in autoimmune disease patients with higher age, chronic kidney diseases, or systemic vasculitis even if patients reveal mild abdominal symptoms.

A 58-year-old man with type 1 diabetes mellitus (hemoglobin A1c level, 6.5% [reference range, 4.0%-5.6%]) complicated by diabetic nephropathy (chronic kidney disease stage 3A), retinopathy, and severe peripheral neuropathy presented to his local urgent care center with a 24-hour history of right dorsal midfoot erythema and mild pain. Two weeks previously, the patient sustained a right foot injury after falling out of bed. The patient had not experienced fevers, chills, night sweats, nausea, vomiting, or malaise but reported somewhat labile blood sugar levels that day with an afternoon glucose measurement of 170 mg/dL (refe...
