Ritonavir-boosted paritaprevir, ombitasvir plus ribavirin could improve eGFR in patients with renal impairment and HCV: an Egyptian cohort.
CONCLUSIONS: The use of ombitasvir, paritaprevir, and ritonavir for treatment of HCV-infected patients with advanced renal disease was safe and effective, moreover, it was associated with significantly improved eGFR. PMID: 30791838 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: ATV inhibited ROS generation and activated IL-1 β/IL-6 secretion in PBMNC of diabetes patients. Its effect was not affected by the hyperglymemia. PMID: 31416412 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions Despite a limited number of patients, a male predominance and late-onset psoriasis were frequently observed. Although interferon therapy for HCV can exacerbate psoriasis, it is not contraindicated. All conventional treatments and anti-TNFs can be used, provided that there is strict collaboration with hepatologists. PMID: 31418622 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Phan K, Smith SD Abstract Background: Topical steroids have been previously associated with potential for hyperglycemia and glucosuria, and thought to have a relatively safe side effect profile. In prolonged use, there is the potential for steroids to be absorbed through the skin and eventually reach systemic circulation. We aimed to investigate the potential association between topical corticosteroid use and development of diabetes, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of available case-control data in the literature. Methods: Electronic database searches was performed to identify studies co...
Conclusion: IP-10 and MCP-1 AH levels seem to be related to DEX intraocular action, decreasing after injection and increasing when DME relapses. In addition, IL-6 and IL-8 may play a role in DME late evolution and clinical relapse beyond DEX effect. PMID: 31418610 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Turner, Louise Kenny, Philip N. Baker, Edward D. Johnstone, Asma Khalil, Peter von Dadelszen, Aris T. Papageorghiou, Zarko AlfirevicAbstractBackgroundSevere early-onset fetal growth restriction (FGR) predisposes to fetal death, neonatal death, neonatal morbidity and neurodisability. The use of placental biomarkers has been proposed for risk stratification in pre-eclampsia, but they could be equally useful in fetal...

In conclusion, our results demonstrated that compression induced apoptosis in primary cultured cortical neurons, which was associated with ROS mediated ER stress and mitochondrial dysfunction. Pharmacological compounds or agents targeting mitochondrial dysfunction and ER stress associated oxidative stress might be ideal candidates for the treatment of IH-related neurological diseases.
ConclusionsThis was presumed to be a rare case of twin pregnancy by triploid embryo formation, followed by loss of an allele due to postzygotic diploidization, development of a diploid fetus, and development of another fetus from a separate embryo. Because of the existence of cases such as this one with a diploid fetus, but without a normal pregnancy coexistent with a complete hydatidiform mole, diagnosis by genetic analysis is required for prognosis.
