High-Salt Diet Causes Expansion of the Lymphatic Network and Increased Lymph Flow in Skin and Muscle of Rats.

Conclusions- The observed changes in lymph flow suggest that the lymphatics may influence long-term regulation of tissue fluid balance during salt accumulation by contributing to fluid homeostasis in skin and muscle. Our studies identify lymph clearance as a potential disease-modifying factor that might be targeted in conditions characterized by salt accumulation like chronic kidney disease and salt-sensitive hypertension.

CONCLUSIONS: Weight loss combined with a healthy lifestyle was shown to be very beneficial for patients with moderate to severe disease with a significant reduction of the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) score. Currently, oral vitamin D supplementation for prevention or treatment of psoriasis in adults with normal vitamin D levels is not recommended; however, psoriasis patients with a deficit in plasma vitamin D levels are advised to complement with oral supplements to prevent psoriasis-related comorbidities. Instead of zinc, selenium, and omega 3 supplements have been proven beneficial for psoriasis patients. Amo...

In this study, food-grade whey protein isolate (WPI) nanofibers were fabricated in combination with guar gum (GG) using the electrospinning method for the first time. The mixture solution of WPI and GG in acidic condition showed spinnability in the concentration range of (WPI: 7–12 and GG: 0.7–0.9 % wt) at 20 kV voltage, 8 cm capillary collector distance and 0.6 ml/min flow rate. The visible transformation in the morphological appearance from nanofibers containing beads to beads free nanofibers was seen when the GG concentration increased from 0.8 to 0.9 % wt at a fixed concentration of WPI (7% wt). Based...

Authors: Matsuyama H, Miyoshi S, Sugino K, Ota H, Toyoda Y, Nihonyanagi Y, Shibuya K, Homma S Abstract Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) usually occurs in patients with severe immunodeficiencies involving neutropenia. Underlying lung disease is a well-known risk factor of IPA; however, interstitial lung disease has not been recognized as a risk factor of IPA. We herein report a patient with fibrotic nonspecific interstitial pneumonia who experienced IPA without neutropenia. His IPA was fatal and showed unusually slow disease progression over one month. The computed tomography findings showed only nonspecific c...

Abstract Cystic lung diseases are a group of disorders that appear similar on radiological studies on chest computed tomography. Each disorder is characterized by its own etiology, pathophysiology, course of progression and manifestation. Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is one of the cystic lung diseases that can either be hereditary or sporadic. The sporadic form is a rare disease with no accurate prevalence reported but is believed to be less than 10 per million. LAM is associated with inappropriate activation of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling which regulates cellular growth. The sporadic form is ...

This study may provide some significant references for large scale photocatalytic hydrogen evolution utilizing solar energy.Graphical abstractThe Y2SiO5:Pr3+,Li, as an up-conversion luminescence agent from visible-light to ultraviolet-light, is synthesized, and then a series of Y2SiO5:Pr3+,Li/NaNbxTa1−xO3 nanoparticles are prepared. The activities of Y2SiO5:Pr3+,Li/Pt-NaNbxTa1−xO3 (x = 0.00, 0.25 and 0.50) are investigated through photocatalytic hydrogen evolution in 10 vol% methanol solution under visible-light irradiation.
