Évaluation de la prévalence de l’hypertension artérielle de l’adulte en milieu du travail à Kinshasa, République Démocratique du Congo

Publication date: Available online 10 May 2018Source: Science &SportsAuthor(s): G. Kusuayi Mabele, C. Nkiama Ekisawa, C. Delecluse, F. Lepira Bompeka, A. NkodilaNatuhoyilaResumeContexteL’hypertension artérielle (HTA) est un facteur de risque cardiovasculaire majeur dans la survenue d’accidents vasculaires cérébraux, d’insuffisance cardiaque, d’insuffisance rénale et de maladies coronaires qui représentent les principales causes de décès dans le monde. Les données insuffisantes sur l’hypertension artérielle en milieu du travail en République Démocratique du Congo, nous ont amené à réaliser une étude transversale analytique en Novembre 2015.ObjectifL’objectif de cette étude était de déterminer la prévalence et les déterminants de l’hypertension artérielle parmi les employés de l’Office de Gestion du Fret Multimodal de la Ville de Kinshasa, République Démocratique du Congo.MéthodologieÉtude transversale analytique des 210 travailleurs, 119 (56,7 %) hommes et 91 (43,3 %) femmes, sélectionnés de manière aléatoire. La PA a été mesurée, après 5 min de relaxation en position assise, au bras gauche porté au niveau du cœur à l’aide d’un sphygmomanom&...

We describe the case of a patient with myelofibrosis (MF)-associated PH who developed left ventricular dysfunction after five years of treatment with the JAK 1/2 inhibitor, ruxolitinib. This is the first report with histopathological findings that demonstrate possible contradictory effects of a JAK 1/2 inhibitor: improvement of MF-associated PH and cardiotoxicity.

Abstract Nephronophthisis (NPHP) is an autosomal recessive cystic kidney disease that is characterized by primary ciliary dysfunction (ciliopathy) and progresses to end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) during the second decade of life (juvenile and adolescent NPHP) or before the age of 3 years (infantile NPHP). Here we describe the case of an infant with NPHP who carries a homozygous mutation in SDCCAG8 (also called NPHP10 or BBS16) that encodes SDCCAG8 (serologically defined colon cancer antigen 8). SDCCAG8 is localized at the centrioles of both renal epithelial cells and retinal photoreceptor cells. A mutation in SDC...

Abstract Computational drug repositioning, designed to identify new indications for existing drugs, significantly reduced the cost and time involved in drug development. Prediction of drug-disease associations is promising for drug repositioning. Recent years have witnessed an increasing number of machine learning-based methods for calculating drug repositioning. In this paper, a novel feature learning method based on Gaussian interaction profile kernel and autoencoder (GIPAE) is proposed for drug-disease association. In order to further reduce the computation cost, both batch normalization layer and the full-conn...

jo EP Abstract Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a unique cytokine that can play both pro- and anti-inflammatory roles depending on the anatomical site and conditions under which it has been induced. Specific neurons of the hypothalamus provide important signals to control food intake and energy expenditure. In individuals with obesity, a microglia-dependent inflammatory response damages the neural circuits responsible for maintaining whole-body energy homeostasis, resulting in a positive energy balance. However, little is known about the role of IL-6 in the regulation of hypothalamic microglia. In this systematic review, w...

Abstract Nonalcoholic fatty pancreas disease (NAFPD) describes a phenotype of pancreatic steatosis (PS) that is not caused by alcohol consumption, viral infections, toxins, or congenital metabolic syndromes but is associated with insulin resistance, malnutrition, obesity, metabolic syndrome, or increasing age. NAFPD is a relatively new disease entity, as the clinical significance of fatty infiltration of pancreas has gained attention recently. Clinical consequences of NAFPD remain largely unknown despite clinical associations. This review aims to study similarities and differences between hepatic and PS and explor...

This study defines a new clinically relevant concept of T-cell senescence-mediated inflammatory responses in the pathophysiology of abnormal glucose homeostasis. We also found that T-cell senescence is associated with systemic inflammation and alters hepatic glucose homeostasis. The rational modulation of T-cell senescence would be a promising avenue for the treatment or prevention of diabetes.
