Fatigue is not associated with vitamin D deficiency in inflammatory bowel disease patients. World J Gastroenterol. 2018 Aug 07;24(29):3293-3301 Authors: Frigstad SO, Høivik ML, Jahnsen J, Cvancarova M, Grimstad T, Berset IP, Huppertz-Hauss G, Hovde Ø, Bernklev T, Moum B, Jelsness-Jørgensen LP Abstract AIM: To investigate if vitamin D deficiency is associated with fatigue in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). METHODS: IBD patients were recruited from nine hospitals in the southeastern and western regions of Norway to participate in a multicenter cross-sectional study lasting from March 2013 to April 2014. Data were collected by interviews, from medical records and laboratory tests. The Fatigue Questionnaire (FQ) was used to measure fatigue. Linear and logistic regression models were applied to explore the possible association between vitamin D deficiency and total fatigue scores and chronic fatigue, respectively. The analyses were adjusted for age, gender, disease activity, depressive symptoms and sleep disturbance. RESULTS: In total, 405 patients were included in the analyses, of which 227 (56%) had Crohn's disease (CD) and 178 (44%) had ulcerative colitis (UC). Vitamin D deficiency (

Conclusions: While this is a very small sample, asenapine appears to have a beneficial effect on both depression and anxiety in depressed bipolar I patients compared to treatment with placebo. Due to the large fraction of subjects with the short form, the hypothesis that the SF-5HTTR might increase asenapine response could not be adequately tested. PMID: 32214517 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Markiewicz E, Idowu OC Abstract Human skin demonstrates a striking variation in tone and color that is evident among multiple demographic populations. Such characteristics are determined predominantly by the expression of the genes controlling the quantity and quality of melanin, which can alter significantly due to the presence of small nucleotide polymorphism affecting various steps of the melanogenesis process and generally linked to the lighter skin phenotypes. Genetically determined, constitutive skin color is additionally complemented by the facultative melanogenesis and tanning responses; with ...
