A Bidirectional Label Propagation Based Computational Model for Potential Microbe-Disease Association Prediction
Discussion There are numerous microbial communities inhabited in the human body, which is critical to human health. The relationship between human microbiome and diseases received much attention from both medical and bioinformatics community recently. However, traditional methods to detect their association is costly and labor-intensive. Thus, we proposed here a new computational model called NBLPIHMDA to infer potential microbe-disease associations. NBLPIHMDA first combined known microbe-disease associations in HMDAD and the Gaussian interaction profile kernel similarity to construct disease similarity network and microbe similarity network. It then conducted tag transmission on these two networks to obtain the predicted score of each microbe-disease pair. Under the framework of LOOCV and 5-fold CV, the AUCs reached 0.8777 and 0.8958 ± 0.0027, respectively, In addition, the case studies of asthma, colorectal carcinoma and COPD further demonstrated that NBLPIHMDA could provide valuable insights into the pathogenesis research. It worth's noting that NBLPIHMDA has certain limitations. First of all, the HMDAD only curated hundreds of known associations between 39 diseases and 292 microbes, which is relatively small. The problem will be partially solved in the future when more associations between diseases and microbes are discovered. In addition, the Gaussian interaction profile kernel similarity of diseases and microbes is calculated based on the known microbe-...
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]
Conclusion Dexamethasone appears to be a promising agent in reduction of post-operative sequelae in third molar surgery. As a potent anti-inflammatory agent it has an effective role in pain, trismus and edema reduction distinguish from the routes of administration, dosage and timing, pre or post-operative prescription.

Halogenated boroxine dipotassium trioxohydroxytetrafluorotriborate K2[B3O3F4OH] inhibits emerging multidrug-resistant and β-lactamase-producing opportunistic pathogens. Drug Dev Ind Pharm. 2019 Aug 16;:1-21 Authors: Maravić A, Rončević T, Krce L, Ilić N, Galić B, Čikeš Čulić V, Carev I Abstract Halogenated boroxine dipotassium trioxohydroxytetrafluorotriborate, K2[B3O3F4OH] (boroxine) was previously shown to be very effective in inhibition of several carcinoma cell lines, including the skin cancer. Here, we investigated its antimicrobial potential by targeting the multidrug-resistan...
Authors: Abdellatif AAH Abstract Numerous normal and tumors cells are well-known to express the somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) on their surface which make the receptor be useful for tumor scintigraphy. Thus, identification of SSTRs is beneficial, especially SSTR2. The somatostatin analogue, Octreotide (OCT) was chosen as a ligand, as it is known to selectively bind to SSTR2. Moreover, polyethylene glycol (PEG), 8armPEG was used as a branched PEG to provide a low non-specific cell binding and easily chemical modification. OCT, and fluorescein (Flu) were conjugated to branched PEG using a water-soluble carbodiimide (...
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]
CONCLUSION: The results suggest that intralesional PPD and topical cantharidin .7% are effective and safe treatment modalities, but benefits of intralesional PPD is being a simple, effective and safe treatment with tolerable pain and can be an alternative treatment for multiple resistant types.

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...
CONCLUSIONS: TENS is beneficial in the field of dermatology, particularly involving the relief of chronic pruritus. PMID: 31418608 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Combined rituximab and bortezomib treatment did not result in significant clinical improvement and there was evidence of disease progression. Further prospective studies are required to assess the efficacy of immunotherapy in patients with autoimmune retinopathy. PMID: 31418623 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: EBE in a North American population showed poor visual recovery despite treatment. It was most commonly due to gram-positive bacteria with the most common infectious source being endocarditis. Malignancy should be considered in patients with bilateral EBE.
