Authors: Lorenzo Sellarés V Abstract This review discusses the diagnostic value of urinary parameters in the setting of advanced chronic kidney disease and we present the key concepts that summarise the suggestions of the manuscript. URINARY VOLUME: The amount of fluid intake may be a non-established risk factor for CKD. For these patients, a urinary output ≥2-3 l/day is a reasonable proposal. This recommendation is not applicable to patients with cardiorenal syndrome or fluid overload risk. NA: This determination is very useful to monitor salt intake. Reducing urinary Na

To discover its mechanisms underlying cellular transformation by Bcr-Abl oncogene, genome-wide mRNA expression was measured by RNA-seq in K562 cells expressing shRNA targeting lncRNA-IIRX and control cells. We identified many genes with differential expression in K562 cells after knocking down lncRNA-IIRX.

CONCLUSIONS: More research into the impact of these new frontiers is needed, but our preliminary findings point to the potential for health promotion practitioners to collaborate on local/community food system initiatives that are not motivated primarily by health goals, but have the potential to deliver multiple health and environmental outcomes. SO WHAT?: This review demonstrated community driven initiatives around local food systems show the most promise in promoting vegetable consumption and addressing the determinants of health. Health promotion efforts to encourage food security and healthy eating could be strengthen...

The objective of this article is to reflect on the existing evidence in Spain about community engagement in health, drawing on the results of the AdaptA GPS Project (Adapt and Apply Health Promotion Guidelines), intended to adapt NICE guideline NG44 on community engagement to improve health and wellbeing, and to reduce inequalities. After describing the methodology for the adaptation process, we discuss some of the findings from the review of the evidence on community engagement in the Spanish context. We ask whether the limited evidence identified is due to the difficulties involved in evaluating these interventions, or t...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURB) on the patients' self-reported depression, anxiety, sexual satisfaction, and erectile dysfunction. Psychological condition of 252 male patients who underwent TURB was prospectively evaluated. The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), simplified Internation...

Authors: Grzywnowicz M, Majsiak E, Gaweł J, Miśkiewicz K, Doniec Z, Kurzawa R Abstract Despite being clinically largely irrelevant, antibodies against cross-reactive carbohydrate determinants (CCD) are an important issue in the in vitro diagnostics, as they may produce false positive or falsely elevated results of the immunoglobulin E class (asIgE) in relation to the actually present level of asIgE. The present chapter demonstrates an effective resolution of this diagnostic issue by the use of a CCD inhibitor in in vitro tests. A synthetic CCD inhibitor, Polycheck® CCD inhibitor, was used in the laboratory di...

Authors: Monsé C, Jettkant B, Schramm BKH, Broding HC, Knappe M, Michl M, Hoffmeyer F, Sucker K, Brüning T, Bünger J Abstract Potash miners can become exposed to carbon dioxide (CO2) during the blasting of basalt intrusions or loading and transporting the blasted salt. In a cross-shift study, we compared physiological effects of acute exposure to elevated CO2 concentrations in miners after long-term exposure to evaluate the possible health risks. A group of 119 miners was assessed by clinical examination, lung function tests, and blood gas content directly before and after the shift. A cumulative C...

CONCLUSION: In conclusion, hASCs exhibited some particular characteristics of aged stem cells when the number of subculture cells increased. However, up to passage 10, ASCs also retained almost all of the characteristics of MSCs. PMID: 30242785 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Bock AJ, Johnson D Abstract Regenerative medicine research at university laboratories has outpaced commercial activity. Legal, regulatory, funding, technological, and operational uncertainty have slowed market entry of regenerative medicine treatments. As a result, commercial development has often been led by entrepreneurial ventures rather than large biopharma firms. Translating regenerative medicine across the university-industry boundary links academic scientists, technology transfer organizations, funders, and entrepreneurs. Conflicting motivations among the participants may significantly hinder these ...
