In conclusion, it remains unclear if brain-specific regional and temporal changes occur in the expression of the different APP variants during AD progression. Since APP is also found in blood cells, assessing the changes in APP mRNA expression in peripheral blood cells from AD patients has been considering an alternative. However, again the quantification of APP mRNA in peripheral blood cells has generated controversial results. Brain APP protein has been analyzed in only a few studies, probably as it is difficult to interpret the complex pattern of APP variants and fragments. We previously characterized the soluabl...

Sarcoidosis is an increasingly prevalent systemic disease resulting in granulomatous inflammation.1,2 Cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) can manifest as systolic heart failure (HF) resulting in increased morbidity and mortality. CS that progresses to end-stage HF may benefit from left ventricular assist device (LVAD) therapy to improve outcomes.3 The treatment of myocardial inflammation, as determined by 18-fludeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET), with immunosuppressive agents is central to prevent adverse cardiovascular events such as ventricular arrhythmias and even death.

AbstractPurposeTo study the value of 2-deoxy-2-[18F]fluoro-D-glucose([18F]FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and [18F]FDG positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MRI) in assessing immunocompromised patients with suspected malignancy or infection.Methods[18F]FDG-PET/CT and [18F]FDG-PET/MRI examinations of patients who were immunocompromised after receiving lung, heart, pancreas, kidney, liver, or combined kidney-liver transplants were analyzed in this retrospective study. Patients underwent whole-body hybrid-imaging because of clinical signs of malignancy and/or infection. Fi...

While most people are familiar with the hallmark symptoms of COVID-19 by now—cough, fever, muscle aches, headaches and difficulty breathing—a new crop of medical conditions are emerging from the more than 4 million confirmed cases of the disease around the world. These include skin rashes, diarrhea, kidney abnormalities and potentially life-threatening blood clots. It’s not unusual for viruses to directly infect and affect different tissues and organs in the body, but it is a bit unusual for a primarily respiratory virus like SARS-CoV-2, which is responsible for COVID-19, to have such a wide-ranging reach...

The objective is to start treating chronic diseases from the root and not the symptoms of the disease. As we are starting to enroll patients in "senolytics-clinical trials," it will be imperative to assess if senolysis efficiently targets the primary cause of disease or if it works best in combination with other drugs. Additional basic science research is required to address the fundamental role of senescent cells, especially in the established contexts of disease.

We previously developed a post LVAD mortality prediction model using multicenter data incorporating pectoralis muscle mass and tissue attenuation obtained on preoperative CT scans. The purpose of this analysis was to evaluate the performance of this model in a prospective cohort including the most contemporary LVADs.

Cardiac cachexia with associated sarcopenia and frailty has been associated with adverse outcomes after placement of a durable left ventricular assist device (LVAD). The purpose of this study is to examine whether the pectoralis muscle index (PMI) measured from preoperative CT scans of the chest will predict outcomes after LVAD implantation.
