CONCLUSION: The use of SGLT2 inhibitors in insulin treated T2D patients resulted in reduction of HbA1c, which was associated to weight loss, cHDL increase and SBP decrease. PMID: 30503071 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSION: The results obtained show a sub-optimal adherence to treatment for the 3chronic diseases studied. Adherence increased with the number of chronic diseases, while sex, age and number of drugs did not show a consistent effect. It is necessary to investigate if there are other factors that may influence therapeutic adherence, since improving adherence may have a greater impact on health than any progress in therapies.

CONCLUSIONS: Many patients were not meeting Japanese LDL-C target levels at the time of ACS, and a large proportion of patients meeting target levels developed ACS; therefore, more stringent management and further evaluation of the target LDL-C levels is warranted in high-risk patients and those with previous history of CAD.

ConclusionWe confirm no significant differences in the perioperative and oncological outcomes between off-clamp and on-clamp RPN. Avoided ischemia benefits renal function within 1-year follow-up after surgery. At longer follow-up, difference with on-clamp is softened.
Medtech companies are not that âinterestedâ in M&A anymore, according to a survey taken during a recent MD+DI webinar discussing Medtech Trends and Adaptation. Arda Ural, Phd, a partner, transaction advisory services practice for Ernst and Young (EY) was the presenter for the webinar. When asked whether or not companies expected to pursue M&A in the coming months about 77% of the participants answered no and 23% an answered yes. This has been a strong year for mergers and acquisitions, as companies have had a lot of cash-on-hand to put to use. Boston Scientific has been one of the busier...
ConclusionsNot all glucometers may be suitable for GDM screening as only three were accurate compared to the reference test and then only at fasting of the OGTT. Importantly, laboratory fasting glucose was diagnostic of GDM in 80% of cases in this study population.

ConclusionThis study has experimentally demonstrated that high daily intake of sugar in healthy pregnancies causes adverse effects on the mother and offspring.
ConclusionModerate-to-severe AD is associated with significant decrements of health utility in the US population. These data illustrate the heavy societal burden of moderate and severe AD and provide important insight for prioritization of resource allocation and cost-effectiveness research.
