Authors: Lin WC, Tsai JP, Lai YH, Lin YL, Kuo CH, Wang CH, Hsu BG Abstract Osteoprotegerin (OPG) is a potential biomarker of cardiovascular disease complications and severity. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is associated with an increased risk of death in patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD). Therefore, this study aimed to evaluate the relationship between serum OPG levels and PAD by measuring the ankle-brachial index (ABI) of patients on PD. A commercial enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kit was used to measure OPG values. Left or right ABI values of

This study has important implications for the future investigations of prevention of periprosthetic infection. The nomogram model identifies high-risk patients for whom attached prophylaxis measures are required. Future studies regarding reduction of incidence of periprosthetic infection should pay close attention to these high-risk patients.Level of evidenceIV, retrospective, cohort study.

CONCLUSION: Metabolic health status and obesity were significantly associated with increased risk of POAG incidence. MUNO subjects but not MHO subjects showed a higher risk of POAG development than did MHNO subjects, suggesting that metabolic status is more important than obesity in POAG.

Authors: Jun SH, Shin WK, Kim Y Abstract BACKGROUND: Soybean food consumption has been considered as a possible way to lower incidence of cardiometabolic syndrome (CMS) among Asians. However, results from studies investigating its efficacy on CMS in Asians have been inconsistent. METHODS: We analyzed the association between soybean intake frequency and prevalence of CMS based on data from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2007 to 2011. Data of 9,287 women aged 20 to 64 years were analyzed. Food frequency questionnaire was used to assess soybean food consumption frequency. General linear...

This study aimed to design a simple surrogate marker (i.e., predictor) of the minimal model glucose effectiveness (SG), namely calculated SG (CSG), from a short insulin-modified intravenous glucose tolerance test (IM-IVGTT), and then to apply it to study women with previous gestational diabetes mellitus (pGDM). METHODS: CSG was designed using the stepwise model selection approach on a population of subjects (n=181) ranging from normal tolerance to type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). CSG was then tested on a population of women with pGDM (n=57). Each subject underwent a 3-hour IM-IVGTT; women with pGDM were observed early ...

CONCLUSION: In the KOGES-Ansan and Ansung study, the PCE overestimated ASCVD risk for men and underestimated the risk for women. The PCE-WH and the FRS-CVD provided an accurate prediction of ASCVD in men and women, respectively. PMID: 31950769 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to evaluate disinfection and wound healing by a combination of cleansing with HClO and covering with CNFS/Ag NPs daily for 3 days. Applying HClO + CNFS/Ag NPs daily for 3 days and then cleansing with just pure water and covering with CNFS alone daily for 9 days were performed for Pseudomonas aeruginosa-infected wounds in db/db diabetic mice. We found a significant enhancement of wound healing and a reduction of bacteria counts compared to the controls. Histological examination showed significantly advanced granulation tissue and capillary formations in the wounds on Day 12. These results suggest that limit...

Authors: Weiner M, Cummins J, Raji A, Ofner S, Iglay K, Teal E, Li X, Engel SS, Knapp K, Rajpathak S, Baker J, Chatterjee AK, Radican L Abstract Objective. Hypoglycemia (HG) occurs in up to 60% of patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) each year. Our objective was to assess a HG alert tool in an electronic health record system and determine the tool's effect on clinical practice and outcomes.Methods. The tool applied a previously developed logistic-regression model to provide patient-specific information about HG risk. We randomized academic outpatient primary-care providers (PCPs) to see or not see the alerts. Adult...
