Acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans: various faces of the late form of Lyme borreliosis.

Conclusions: Despite raising awareness of Lyme borreliosis, late forms of the disease such as ACA are still observed. Acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans skin lesions may be located in non-characteristic areas, e.g. abdominal skin. Symptoms are not irritating or painful, therefore patients do not seek medical help. The effect of antibiotic treatment varies. PMID: 30429707 [PubMed]

Their hypoglycemic activities in STZ-induced diabetic mice were compared by oral administration at the dose of 400 mg/kg·bw/d. The analysis of fasting blood glucose (FBG), fasting serum insulin (FINS), serum lipids (including total cholesterol, triglyceride, high density lip...

Accurate monitoring of glucose levels constitutes the most important parameter for diabetes management and treatment planning. In this work, we report on an in vitro glucose monitoring system based on multispectral photoacoustic sensing (MSPAS) using a cost-effective supercontinuum (SC) laser. We ...

CONCLUSION: Only gastric/small intestinal surgery was a potential risk factor for poor bowel preparation. Further research on patients with a history of gastric/small intestinal surgery to determine appropriate methods for adequate bowel preparation is mandatory. PMID: 30554493 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, we have artificially irreversibly inhibited the activity of cellular catalase enzyme from human liver cells (WRL-68) using 3-Amino-1,2,4-Triazole (3-AT). Further, CeNPs was used for imparting protective effect against the deleterious effects of elevated cellular H2O2 concentration. Our results suggest that CeNPs (+4) can protect hepatic cells from cytotoxicity and genetic damage from the high concentrations of H2O2 in the absence of functional catalase enzyme. CeNPs were efficiently internalized in WRL-68 cells and effectively scavenge the free radicals generated due to elevated H2O2 inside the cells. Additi...

Publication date: Available online 17 December 2018Source: Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - General SubjectsAuthor(s): Antonis E. KoromilasAbstractCells employ pro-survival and pro-adaptive pathways to cope with different forms of environmental stress. When stress is excessive, and the damage caused by it is unsustainable, cells engage pro-death pathways, which are in place to protect the host from the deleterious effects of harmed cells. Two important pathways that determine the balance between survival and death of stressed cells are the integrated stress response (ISR) and the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), ...
