Liquiritigenin attenuates high glucose-induced mesangial matrix accumulation, oxidative stress, and inflammation by suppression of the NF-κB and NLRP3 inflammasome pathways

In conclusion, these results demonstrated that liquiritigenin attenuated HG-induced ECM accumulation, oxidative stress, and inflammation by suppression of the NF-κB and NLRP3 inflammasome pathways, suggesting that liquiritigenin might be a promising therapeutic agent for preventing the development of DN.Graphical abstract

This study was conducted on 1200 subjects aged>25 years. Hemoglobin from the above-mentioned subjects was detected using direct-infusion electrospray ionization-MS, and HbA1c and FPG were measured according to the manufacturer's instructions. Regression analysis was performed to estimate the correlations and interactions among HbA1c, FPG, and modified hemoglobin.ResultsMultiple modified forms (α1, α2, α3, β1, β2, and β3) of hemoglobin were observed using MS. Statistical analyses indicated that modified hemoglobin was significantly correlated with FPG (p ≤ .01). The association o...

This study aimed to determine the predictors of discharge to a facility and develop and validate a predictive scoring model, utilizing the Oklahoma Trauma Registry (OTR).MethodsA multivariate analysis of the OTR 2005-2013 determined independent predictors of discharge to a facility. A scoring model was developed, and positive and negative predictive values (PPV and NPV) were evaluated for 2014 patients.Results101,656 patients were analyzed. The scoring model included age≥50 years, lower extremity fracture, ICU stay≥5 days, pelvic fracture, intracranial hemorrhage, congestive heart failure, cardiac dysrhythmia, histor...
