The NFκB signaling pathway serves an important regulatory role in Klebsiella pneumoniae liver abscesses. Exp Ther Med. 2018 Jun;15(6):5443-5449 Authors: Zhang M, Pan L, Xu D, Cao C, Shi R, Han S, Liu J, Li X, Li M Abstract The incidence of Klebsiella pneumoniae liver abscess (KPLA) has increased in a number of Asian countries over the past 30 years. Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a risk factor for KPLA. The prevalence and clinical features of KPLA in patients with and without DM have been well described; however, the underlying molecular mechanism responsible for the increased incidence of KPLA in pat...

Authors: Xu J, Min D, Guo G, Liao X, Fu Z Abstract The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of epidermal growth factor (EGF) and acidic fibroblast growth factor (aFGF) on the healing of diabetic foot wounds. A total of 199 patients with diabetic foot ulcers were recruited and randomly divided into four groups: A recombinant human EGF group (n=50), an aFGF group (n=50), a combined EGF and aFGF group (n=50) and a normal saline control group (n=49). Patients in all groups received a daily dressing change and growth factor reagents were applied topically when dressing. To observe the time required for...

Authors: Cheng PK, Chen XL, Su XX, Su XJ, Hou CL Abstract Refractory ischemic ulcers that occur in patients with diabetes present a major clinical challenge. Embryonic artery cluster of differentiation 133+ cells (EACCs) may promote the healing of diabetic ulcers; however, the high glucose environment in the diabetic ulcers decreases the survival rate of transplanted EACCs and inhibit their biological function. Furthermore, microcirculation in diabetic ischemic ulcers is impaired, which inhibits the beneficial effect of EACCs. In the current study, the Sirt1 agonist SRT1720 was selected as a therapeutic drug and lo...

Abstract A community clinic in Puerto Rico, the Bantiox Clinic, was developed to serve the medical needs of Toa Baja and the surrounding communities after Hurricanes Irma and Maria in response to an urgent need for medical treatment of the community residents. Within 4 months, the clinic had 4941 total visits. The Toa Baja residents used the clinic more than the offsite residents. Certain offsite towns needed medical care more than others, suggesting a lack of medical access in the mountainous areas. Elderly patients with chronic diseases were served more than younger patients. Hypertension, diabetes, and med...

Abstract Familial chylomicronemia syndrome (FCS) is a rare lipid disorder posing significant clinical burdens on patients. Due to its rarity, variety of presentations, and lack of universal diagnostic criteria, patients see an average of five physicians before diagnosis. We screened adults for a triglyceride level ≥1000 mg/dL from September 2015 to September 2016 and a history of pancreatitis and performed a thorough chart review on those who met the criteria. An adjudication panel used a definition that also called for supportive information including history of hypertriglyceridemia or family history of p...

This study explored the difference in the occurrence of spontaneous AA after AFl ablation as a function of the patient's presenting rhythm on the day of the AFl ablation. A retrospective study of consecutive patients who underwent AFl ablation at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas was performed. A total of 188 subjects were included; 50% (94) presented in AFl (Group AFl) on the day of the ablation procedure and 94 presented in sinus rhythm (SR; Group SR). Group AFl patients were older (P
