Conclusion: In conclusion, AVMD is a genotypic and phenotypic heterogeneous disease. The genetic aetiology could not be explained by sequencing BEST1 and PRPH2 genes in the AVMD patients; however, the variant of PRPH2 could be a cause of predisposition relevant to the phenotype.

Authors: Teng M, Zhou S, Cai C, Lupien M, He HH Abstract Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed non-cutaneous cancers in North American men. While androgen deprivation has remained as the cornerstone of prostate cancer treatment, resistance ensues leading to lethal disease. Forkhead box A1 (FOXA1) encodes a pioneer factor that induces open chromatin conformation to allow the binding of other transcription factors. Through direct interactions with the Androgen Receptor (AR), FOXA1 helps to shape AR signaling that drives the growth and survival of normal prostate and prostate cancer cells. FOXA1 also possesse...

Hi all, I've been having a lot of anxiety regarding a critical decision I made several years prior. When I was a senior in high school, I received admission to a school that now ranks among the Top 3 public universities in the United States. Although I did receive a small scholarship (several thousand), it would have put me into significant debt. I instead opted for a much smaller school (which ranks between 150-200) that was generous enough to endow me with a full-tuition merit... Dealing with Anxiety as a Pre-Med

This study was undertaken to compare the distal femoral cartilage thickness in patients with keratoconus (KC) with that of age- and sex-matched healthy controls, in order to identify a potential risk factor for early osteoarthritis in patients with KC and to allow initiation of early rehabilitation.MethodsThirty-six KC patients between 18 and 35 years of age and 36 healthy controls were included in this study. Keratometry readings (K1,K2), central corneal thickness (CCT), anterior chamber depth (ACD), iridocorneal angle (ICA), and corneal volumes (CV) were measured using a Sirius imaging system (Costruzioni Strumenti Oftal...

This study aimed to investigate the prevalence and associated factors of inter-arm blood pressure difference (IAD) in Chinese community hypertensive population. METHODS: The cross-sectional study included 7788 hypertensive patients (3673 male and 4115 female, aged 62.3±13.6 years) in Guangdong, China. IAD was defined as the absolute value of blood pressure (BP) difference between left and right arms. Bilateral BP was measured simultaneously by automated devices. RESULTS: The mean IAD was 4.04±4.33 mm Hg in systolic and 3.19±3.43 mm Hg in diastolic. The prevalence rates of systolic IAD (sIAD)&ge...

This study aimed to explore the quantitative differences between common OHRA models. METHODS: The risk ratios (RRs) in five typical industries (leather, wooden furniture manufacturing, printing and dyeing, printing, and garment manufacturing) were investigated using six OHRA models, namely the models from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Singapore, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH), Australia, Romania, and International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM). The consistency, correlation, and reliability were evaluated for quantitative differences between the models. RESULTS: The order...

Authors: Ossareh S, Bagheri M, Abbasi M, Abolfathi S, Bohlooli A Abstract INTRODUCTION: Seven months after the emergence of SARS-COV-2 virus, there is paucity of data regarding the epidemiology of the virus in hemodialysis patients. We aim to present the results of the screening program implied after outbreak of COVID-19 in a referral hemodialysis ward. METHODS: We started clinical screening and obligatory mask wearing for dialysis patients and personnel on 20-Feb-2020. However 11 symptomatic COVID-19 patients emerged till day +36. On days +39 and +40 a screening program was implied including measurement of SAR...

CONCLUSION: In the current study, the patient's albuminuria, type of treatment and HbA1c had no effect on the RI. The study also found that an increase in the RI index could be a significant predictor of renal dysfunction and increased creatinine. PMID: 32943590 [PubMed - in process]
