In this study, we found that senescent chondrocytes isolated from OA patients secrete more EVs compared with nonsenescent chondrocytes. These EVs inhibit cartilage ECM deposition by healthy chondrocytes and can induce a senescent state in nearby cells. We profiled the miR and protein content of EVs isolated from the synovial fluid of OA joints from mice with SnCs. After treatment with a molecule to remove SnCs, termed a senolytic, the composition of EV-associated miR and protein was markedly altered. The senolytic reduced OA development and enhanced chondrogenesis, and these were attributable to several specific differentially expressed miRs (miR-30c, miR-92a, miR-34a, miR-24, miR-125a, miR-150, miR-186, and miR-223) and proteins (Serpina and aggrecan). In aged animals, treatment with senolytic modulated the inflammatory response by decreasing recruitment and activation of myeloid and phagocytic cells. Collectively, these findings suggest that altered levels of synovial EV miRs and proteins are a potential mechanism by which SnCs can transfer senescence, inhibit tissue formation, and promote OA development. When isolated from synovial fluid, EVs may also be used to predict therapeutic response to senolytic therapies in the articular joint.

Authors: Ryba-Stanisławowska M, Sakowska J, Zieliński M, Ławrynowicz U, Trzonkowski P Abstract INTRODUCTION: CD4+ T regulatory cells (Tregs) have been described as the most potent immunosuppressive cells in the human body. They have been found to control autoimmunity, and clinical attempts have been made to apply them to treat autoimmune diseases. Some specific pathways utilized by Tregs in the regulation of immune response or Tregs directly as cellular products are tested in the clinic. Areas covered: Here, we present recent advances in the research on the biology and clinical applications of Tregs in the treat...

This study sought to analyze the association of early coronary angiography with all-cause mortality and cardiovascular mortality in patients with non–ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTEACS) using a large contemporary cohort of patients with NSTEACS from 2 Spanish tertiary hospitals.MethodsThis retrospective observational study included 5673 consecutive NSTEACS patients from 2 Spanish hospitals between 2005 and 2016. We performed propensity score matching to obtain a well-balanced subset of patients with the same probability of undergoing an early strategy, resulting in 3780 patients. Survival analyses ...

This study aimed to assess survival after TARE and to identify potential prognostic factors in this patient population. METHODS: Patients with unresectable and chemorefractory CRCLM treated with TARE at our institution between February 2006 and September 2015 were included in the study. Survival rate, hepatic tumor response, and potential prognostic factors were analyzed. RESULTS: In the 43 study patients, the mean follow-up was 15.0 ± 14.2 months, with a median survival of 13.0 months and 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-year survival rates of 52.1%, 24.9%, 21.4%, 21.4%, and 7.1%, respectively. The mean activity of yt...

CONCLUSION: WFRP is fast and effective in screening for diabetic retinopathy. The severity grade of the disease was similar to the gold standard of FRP in most cases. WFRP could thus be used in mass screening for diabetic retinopathy. PMID: 31104875 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Karadag R, Koyun E, Ozsoy I, Caliskan M Abstract PURPOSE: To obtain simultaneous 24-hour contact lens voltage and systemic arterial blood pressure values with the Sensimed Triggerfish system and Holter monitoring device. METHODS: Ten primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and 8 pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (PXG) patients were included in the study. The Sensimed Triggerfish contact lens device was used to calculate the 24-hour IOP, and a Holter sphygmomanometer device was used for simultaneous 24-hour blood pressure measurements. We define the 8:00 am-11:00 pm period measurements as diurnal values and the oth...
