Role of Public Health Organizations in Addressing Public Health Problems in Europe: The Case of Obesity, Alcohol and Antimicrobial Resistance

Source: World Health Organization, Regional Office for Europe. Published: 10/2018. This 116-page report is based on detailed country reports from nine European countries (England, France, Germany, Italy, the Republic of Moldova, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, and Sweden) on the involvement of public health organizations in addressing obesity, alcohol, and antimicrobial resistance. It discusses why public health agencies and organizations must play a part in any response to these issues, with intersectoral action beyond the health system needed. (PDF)

In this study, we describe a three-generation Italian family showing the segregation of an interrupted DMPK allele within the premutation range. TP-PCR with primers complementary to CCG repetitions and direct sequencing allow us to identify a hetero-triplet (CTG)6(CCGCTG)15(CTG)5 repeat structure. The haplotype analysis demonstrated that this variant allele is associated with the European founder DM1 haplotype. The pyrosequencing analysis of the CpG islands contained in the flanking regions of the CTG array, did not show the presence of a cis effect of the CCG interruptions on the methylation profile of the DM1 locus. The ...

Authors: Schorling DC, Müller CK, Pechmann A, Borell S, Langer T, Thiele S, Walter MC, Zieger B, Kirschner J Abstract Different complications of hemostasis have been reported in patients with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). These comprise an increased rate of bleeding-symptoms during scoliosis surgery but also thromboembolic complications such as pulmonary embolism, cerebral infarction, deep vein thrombosis or cardiac thrombus. For this cross-sectional study, personalized online survey-links were forwarded to 682 registered patients with a genetically confirmed diagnosis of DMD via the German-Austrian DMD p...

Authors: Roberts E, Hotopf M, Drummond C Abstract To our knowledge no previous studies have been conducted at the local authority level assessing relationships between alcohol-related hospital admission, specialist alcohol treatment provision and socioeconomic deprivation since the UK government passed the Health and Social Care Act in 2012. Our results, using publicly available national data-sets, suggest that the local authority areas in England most in need of adequately funded specialist alcohol treatment, because of high prevalence of alcohol dependence and deprivation, are not receiving targeted increased fun...

Conclusions: These findings reveal for the first time that tesaglitazar has anti-inflammatory effects on adipose tissue macrophage populations in vivo. These data also suggest that while nanoparticle delivery reduced off-target effects, yet the lack of tesaglitazar actions in non-targeted cells such (as hepatocytes and adipocytes) and the uptake of drug-loaded liposomes in many other cell types, albeit to a lesser extent, may have impacted overall therapeutic efficacy. This fulsome analysis of cellular uptake of tesaglitazar-loaded liposomes provides important lessons for future studies of liposome drug delivery.

Conclusions: Our study demonstrate that formononetin can substantially attenuate the development of atherosclerosis via regulation of interplay between KLF4 and SRA, which suggests the formononetin might be a novel therapeutic approach for inhibition of atherosclerosis.

Conclusions: This multi-omics based study provides a general view of the complex relationships and an alternative classification for various metabolic diseases where the cross-talk or compensatory mechanism between the immune and metabolism systems plays a critical role.
