Registration is now open for Endocrine Nurse Update 2015

The Society for Endocrinology’s Endocrine Nurse Update is the ideal setting to share the latest advances in endocrine nursing expertise, discover the most recent developments and meet colleagues from around the UK Providing dedicated training for established and new-to-post specialist endocrine nurses, this renowned course offers an indispensable update on best practice and the latest developments in the endocrine nursing field. For the first time this year, the programme will include six Clinical Update crossover lectures covering Intervention strategies to achieve weight loss Practical management of anorexia Lifelong management of Turner syndrome Disorders of sex development (DSD) Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Nuclear imaging and therapy The full programme is available on the ENU website. Funding opportunities are available to nurse members wishing to attend ENU 2015; the deadline for applications is 15 December 2014. Nurse members may also apply immediately to use their overseas grant towards attending ENU 2015.

ConclusionsChildren with a clinically suspected HK with WT should undergo a careful imaging evaluation such as CT before any surgical intervention. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy to reduce tumor bulk might be a good treatment method to reduce surgical morbidity and aid in complete excision and potential for preserving renal function.

AbstractGyrovirus 3 (GyV3), the third novel emerging species of the genusGyrovirus of theAnelloviridae family, has been described in multiple hosts. Epidemiologically, there are suggestions that GyV3 is associated with diarrhea/proventriculitis, however, no direct causal evidence exists between GyV3 infection and specific clinical diseases. Herein, we infected special pathogen-free (SPF) chickens with GyV3, and then assessed the pathogenicity and tissue tropism. The results revealed that GyV3 induced persistent infection characterized by diarrhea, aplastic anemia, immunosuppression, and persistent systemic lymphocytic infl...

AbstractIn malignant hypertension, far more severe kidney injury occurs than in the “benign” form of the disease. The role of high blood pressure and the renin–angiotensin–aldosterone system is well recognized, but the pathogenesis of the renal injury of malignant hypertension (MH) remains incompletely understood. Using the rat model of two-kidney, one-clip renovascular hyp ertension in which some but not all animals develop MH, we performed a transcriptomic analysis of gene expression by RNA sequencing to identify transcriptional changes in the kidney cortex specific for MH. Differential gene expre...

Biochim Biophys Acta Gen Subj. 2021 Sep 11:130011. doi: 10.1016/j.bbagen.2021.130011. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAcute exercise, and in particular aerobic exercise, increases skeletal muscle energy demand causing mitochondrial stress, and mitochondrial-related adaptations which are a hallmark of exercise training. Given that mitochondria are central players in the exercise response, it is imperative that they have networks that can communicate their status both intra- and inter-cellularly. Peptides encoded by short open-reading frames within mitochondrial DNA, mitochondrial-derived peptides (MDPs), have been suggested t...

Obes Surg. 2021 Sep 13. doi: 10.1007/s11695-021-05678-2. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPURPOSE: Patients undergoing laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) are at risk of developing strictures of the gastrojejunal anastomosis (GJA). Several variables can affect this, one of which may be the method of anastomosis. Between 2010 and 2014, our institution utilized three different anastomotic techniques for creating the GJA (25 mm end-to-end circular-stapled (CS), linear-stapled (LS), and robotic hand sewn (HS)). Our objectives were to compare the method of GJA relative to the subsequent development of anastomotic strictur...

Conclusion: A BWL treatment in a clinical setting identified 2 distinct groups with different attitudes towards bariatric surgery that were associated with different body weight change outcomes. These groups may require differently targeted programmes to achieve the best body weight loss results.Obes Facts

uul A Abstract Hypogonadism may be suspected if puberty is delayed. Pubertal delay may be caused by a normal physiological variant, by primary ovarian insufficiency (Turner syndrome), or reflect congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (HH; genetic) or acquired HH (brain lesions). Any underlying chronic disease like inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, malnutrition (anorexia or orthorexia), or excessive physical activity may also result in functional HH. Thus, girls with delayed puberty should be evaluated for an underlying pathology before any treatment, including oral contraception, is initiated. Estrogen...
