Optimal diet and lifestyle strategies for the management of cardio-metabolic risk (Pre-recorded- various dates available)

The first hot topic webinar of the series, hosted by Professor Bruce Griffin, University of Surrey, who is a biomedical scientist with expertise in lipid metabolism, nutritional biochemistry and cardiovascular disease,  will highlight the important role of diet and lifestyle in the management of cardio-metabolic risk factors, for the purpose of preventing premature cardiovascular diseases (CVD).   The content of the webinar will reflect, and provide insight into  the topics of the2018 Winter Conference's four symposia.   After setting the scene with an overview of the origins, prevalence and impact of cardio-metabolic risk factors on CVD, the webinar will explore the effects of dietary fats, with focus on saturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, ketogenic diets and how these impact on ectopic fat depots like t he liver and skeletal muscle.  The theme will then turn to the role of dietary carbohydrates, and the critical importance of modifying the quality of this macronutrient by reducing free sugars and increasing resistant starches and fibres. The final section will examine the evidence for the impact o f modifying whole dietary patterns, meal timing and an influential factor that modifies dietary responses and is endemic to our lifestyles drug therapy.  In association with  theNutrition Society's Winter Conference 2018, the  principal objective will be to translate the latest, evidence-based research on cardio-me...

This study aimed to investigate the level, duration, and dynamics of the human immune response against the SGL of Phlebotomus sergenti Parrot, 1917 (Diptera: Psychodidae), and to assess the immunoreactivity of human sera with SGL components in an endemic area of anthroponotic cutaneous leishmaniasis (ACL) in Iran. The study was carried out in 2-phase; longitudinal and cross-sectional. Sand flies were collected monthly from indoors and outdoors. In the longitudinal study, sera from healthy volunteers were collected monthly, and in the cross-sectional study, sera from healthy volunteers and patients with ACL lesion/s, w...

AbstractCOVID-19 has infected more than 2 million people in the world in less than 5  months outbreak. Chest imaging is recommended for triage of suspected cases of COVID-19 with moderate-severe clinical features and high pre-test probability of disease, and may help for patient follow-up and to identify patients at higher risk of disease worsening. This pictorial essay illustrates typical and uncommon imaging findings of COVID-19 pneumonia and the role of imaging for patient management.

Conclusion: PCM can be a serious, debilitating disease and is potentially fatal. Although isolated CNS involvement is rare, it must be considered, especially in endemic areas, as late diagnosis and treatment severely decreases good outcome rates. PMID: 32637204 [PubMed]

Abstract Pemphigus is a group of autoimmune bullous skin diseases that result in significant morbidity. As for other multifactorial autoimmune disorders, environmental factors may trigger the disease in genetically susceptible individuals. The goals of this review are to summarize the state of knowledge about the genetic variation that may affect the susceptibility and pathogenesis of pemphigus vulgaris and pemphigus foliaceus - both the endemic and the sporadic forms -, to compare and discuss the possible meaning of the associations reported, and to propose recommendations for new research initiatives. Understand...

Seagrass meadows are ubiquitous, fragile and endangered marine habitats, which serve as fish breeding grounds, stabilize ocean floor substrates, retain nutrients and serve as important carbon sinks, counteracting climate change. In the Mediterranean Sea, seagrass meadows are mostly formed by the slow-growing endemic plant Posidonia oceanica (Neptune grass), which is endangered by global warming and recreational motorboating. Despite its importance, surprisingly little is known about the leaf surface microbiome of P. oceanica. Using amplicon sequencing, we here show that species belonging to the phylum Planctomycetes can do...
