Evening Eating —“Are You a ‘Light’ Eater?”
The following is an excerpt from Let Go of Emotional Overeating and Love Your Food by Arlene B. Englander. (Copyright © 2018. Published by Rowman &Littlefield. All rights reserved.) Anyone who has ever tried to lose weight or keep weight off realizes that evening can be the make or break time of day in terms of permanent success. Consider this. In my community there currently is a radio-based advertising campaign touting the effectiveness of a weight loss formula that I will refer to as the Weight Loss Answer. This liquid, taken at bedtime, is to be consumed on an empty stomach. The purchaser is told not to eat or drink anything for three hours prior to drinking the “miracle product,” which will melt pounds away regardless of whatever is eaten during the day. The radio announcer who is advocating this product sounds somewhat manic (a side effect of the product or the promotional fee?) and swears that he has shed over twenty pounds in about six months. And now I’m going to tell you a money-saving secret. If you keep a journal of everything you eat all day, and are especially scrupulous about writing everything you eat in the evening, chances are that 20 to 30 percent of your day’s calories are consumed not in the day, but at night! By deducting most, if not all, of the calories ingested in the evening, you can probably make your own “miracle,” and keep your hard-earned money. Let’s do the math. Let’s say you ea...
ConclusionThis study identified the most accurate and reliable machine learning methods, which could enhance the application of radiomics methods in the precision of diagnosis of NPC.
ConclusionsThe results demonstrate that even subtle changes in vessel morphology can be noninvasively quantified. This is of great interest for AD, but also to other models of neurodegenerative diseases involving macrovascular dysfunction.
ConclusionsThe new PET radiotracer [18F]AF78 demonstrated high affinity for NET and favourable biodistribution in rats. A structure-activity relationship between radiotracer structures and affinity for NET was revealed, which may serve as the basis for the further design of NET targeting radiotracers with favourable features.
ConclusionsUnlike [18F]FDG, [18F]BODIPY 1 showed prominent accumulation in BAT under both inactive and stimulated status. [18F]BODIPY 1 may serve as a valuable BAT PET agent to possibly assess BAT mitochondria density, thus BAT thermogenic capacity after further evaluation.
ConclusionsHypoxia modulation may play a role in nal-IRI ’s mechanism of action. Nal-IRI demonstrated greater anti-tumor activity in the more aggressive and hypoxic tumor model. Furthermore, hypoxia imaging provided early prediction of treatment response.
AbstractThe current utilization of positron emission tomography (PET) imaging is limited due to the high costs associated with production facility start-up and operations; subsequently, there has been a movement towards microfluidic synthesis of radiolabeled imaging pharmaceuticals (tracers). In this review, we summarize the current status of microfluidic radiosynthesis units for producing fluorine-18 labeled PET imaging tracers, including a discussion of the relative strengths and weaknesses of such devices. In addition, we provide a brief overview of the radiotracers that have been produced using microfluidic devices to ...
ConclusionsIntegrated [68Ga]PSMA-11 PET/MRI provides a similarly high diagnostic performance for localization of recurrent PC as PET/CT. For the detection of local recurrences [68Ga]PSMA-11 PET/MRI is superior compared with [68Ga]PSMA-11 PET/CT.
AbstractPurposeExisting clinical or microbiological scores are not sensitive enough to obtain prompt identification of patients at risk of complicatedClostridium difficile infection (CDI). Our aim was to use a CDI animal model to evaluate 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose positron emission tomography ([18F]FDG-PET) as a marker of severe course of infection.ProceduresCDI was induced with cefoperazone for 10 days followed by clindamycin 1 day beforeC. difficile inoculation. Mice were divided into wild type (n = 6), antibiotic without infection (ACn = 4), h001-infected (n = 5...
Conclusion: To better understand the complexity and interdependence of families' occupational patterns, future studies should examine multiple perspectives (parents and children) when studying occupations in a family setting. This can be enabled by the use of a variety of data collection methodologies. PMID: 32449442 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: Multiparametric ultrasonography depicts a non-ionizing, directly accessible and cost-effective imaging modality that allows for the extensive characterization of testicular tumors, thereby helping to discriminate between malignant and benign entity of testicular tumors.
