Pregnancies Complicated by Familial Hypertriglyceridemia: A Case Report

Conclusion Treatment with gemfibrozil in pregnancies complicated by hypertriglyceridemia may prevent complications without adverse maternal or fetal effects and could be considered in treating pregnant patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia.

The decision to consume alcohol should therefore be ...

We aim to investigate the role of HMGB1 in hippocampal inflammatory responses and cognitive impairment in high-fat high-fructose diet (HFHFD)-induced obesity. Rats were fed with a normal control diet or an HFHFD diet for 14 weeks. In the last 6 weeks on the diets, the rats were treated with control...

ConclusionsIn this retrospective analysis of our clinical experience treating CRE infections in an LTACH setting, we documented that CRE infections occur in patients with substantial comorbidities. Although clinical outcome remains of great concern, the 28-day mortality and rate of eradication of CRE in this study were comparatively better than other national estimates. Inappropriate empiric treatment may be one of many factors leading to overall poor treatment outcomes.

NAFLD is truly a systemic disease and is associated with a plethora of extra-hepatic manifestations or comorbidities. These are either related to secondary effects of associated obesity or from pathophysiological effects of insulin resistance in NAFLD. Three most common causes of increased morbidity and mortality associa...

Opinion StatementAlthough we have been living in the era of biologic therapy for several decades, the use of immunomodulators (primarily thiopurines [azathioprine and mercaptopurine] and less so methotrexate) still remains an important component of the inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) pharmaceutical arsenal. Thiopurines as monotherapy exert corticosteroid-sparing effects and can maintain long-term remission in a considerable proportion of patients who have frequent relapses and are or have become mesalazine and/or corticosteroid intolerant or refractory. Withdrawal of thiopurines results in relapse of disease in a signific...
