Let‑7a‑5p may participate in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy through targeting HMGA2. Mol Med Rep. 2019 Mar 19;: Authors: Wang T, Zhu H, Yang S, Fei X Abstract Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is one of the most common complications of diabetes mellitus (DM), and has been demonstrated as one of the major causes of renal failure. In a previous study, it was noted that microRNA let‑7a‑5p was downregulated in DN; however, the underlying mechanism requires additional investigation. The aim of the present study was to investigate the roles of let‑7a‑5p in the pathogenesis of DN and its associa...

Authors: Liu Z, Yu X, Tong C, Qi H Abstract Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) incidence is increasing worldwide. In the present study, the effects of metformin on high fat diet (HFD)‑induced renal dysfunction were investigated in GDM mice. In addition, the molecular mechanisms underlying metformin function were examined. GDM was induced by feeding pregnant mice a HFD, and mice were treated with two different doses of metformin (300 and 600 mg/kg/day) or PBS between embryonic day 11.5 (E11.5) and E17.5. The pregnant mice at E18.5 were utilized to analyze the effects of metformin on renal dysfunction. Renal ...

The objective of this report was to summarize current knowledge of CC, squamous intraepithelial lesions, and human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in non-HIV immunocompromised women to determine best practices for CC surveillance in this population and provide recommendations for screening. We evaluated those with solid organ transplant, hematopoietic stem cell transplant, and a number of autoimmune diseases. A panel of health care professionals involved in CC research and care was assembled to review and discuss existing literature on the subject and come to conclusions about screening based on available evidence and expe...

Authors: Bovonratwet P, Bohl DD, Malpani R, Haynes MS, Rubio DR, Ondeck NT, Shultz BN, Mahal AR, Grauer JN Abstract INTRODUCTION: Large cohort studies evaluating cardiac complications in patients undergoing spine surgery are lacking. 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...

MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed the data collected by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) from 1999 to 2016. Participants greater than 20 years of age, who had valid blood pressure measurements, were included in the study. A comprehensive analysis of 14 population subgroups was done to systematically examine how hyper...
