This study showed that potential vicious cycles underlying ARDs are quite diverse and unique, triggered by diverse and unique factors that do not usually progress with age, thus casting doubts on the possibility of discovering the single molecular cause of aging and developing the single anti-aging pill. Rather, each disease appears to require an individual approach. However, it still cannot be excluded that some or all of these cycles are triggered by fundamental processes of aging, such as chronic inflammation or accumulation of senescent cells. Nevertheless, experimental data showing clear cause and effect relationships...

AbstractBackgroundImmune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI)-induced pancreatic injury (ICIPI) is not well documented in the literature. We aimed to describe the clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients who developed ICIPI.MethodsWe reviewed the medical records of consecutive patients who had a confirmed diagnosis of ICIPI (Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events grade  ≥ 3 lipase elevation with or without clinical symptoms) from April 2011 through April 2018.ResultsAmong the 2,279 patients received ICI and had lipase values checked thereafter, 82 (4%) developed ICIPI. Overall, 65% of patients recei...

This study shows the incidence of cancer associated with obesity has been rising dramatically in groups of individuals born in more recent decades,” said MD Anderson Cancer Center’s Dr. George Chang, who was not associated with the analysis. However, Chang warns against overgeneralizing on the basis of an epidemiological study. “The study was not set up to establish causation,” Chang said. “We know there are many factors that are associated with both obesity and cancer, such as lack of exercise and poor diet. How much each of those factors contribute to cancer is less clear.” Obesity is ...

Follow the simple Wheat Belly No Change Rule for fingerstick blood sugars and you maximize your chances of getting rid of type 2 diabetes and accelerating weight loss. By becoming non-diabetic or at least minimizing it, you are freed from the awful health consequences of this disease, as well as extending life considerably. The No Change Rule also helps reverse insulin resistance that blocks weight loss. Transcript: Hi everybody. Doctor William Davis here. I want to talk about something I call the Wheat Belly “No Change Rule” — that is, no change in blood sugar — comparing a pre-meal to ...

Conclusions In contrast to the favorable effect of the decrease in smoking prevalence, other factors, including the increased prevalence of obesity and diabetes and increased physical inactivity, increased intake of red or processed meat and inadequate intake of fruits and vegetables are likely to have an unfavorable role in pancreatic cancer incidence worldwide.

Conclusions Genomics, epigenetics, the microbiome, and social determinants of health are components that contribute to the pancreatic cancer disparity in AAs. These factors can be researched, targeted, and modified to improve mortality rates. Closing the disparity in pancreatic cancer will require an integrated approach of personalized medicine, increased minority recruitment to studies, and advanced health care/education access.

Based on the suspicion of autoimmune pancreatitis, endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) was performed. A cytologic examination showed findings suggestive of adenocarcinoma. Due to discrepancies between the imaging and patholo...
