CONCLUSIONS: Immunohistochemistry seems to be a promising option not only in clinical recognition, but also in the selection and monitoring of treatment effects. However, these methods have not yet recommended for routine clinical use. PMID: 33032462 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Siamashvili M, Davis S Abstract INTRODUCTION: Bromocriptine mesylate quick release (QR) is a dopamine D2 receptor agonist and is the only oral, primarily centrally acting drug that can be used for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes. AREAS COVERED: The authors describe current recommendations on the use of bromocriptine mesylate QR. Major efficacy and safety parameters of the late phase trials, including The Cycloset Safety Trial, have been identified and presented. EXPERT OPINION: Efficacy of bromocriptine mesylate QR monotherapy appears to be low but is compensated by favorable safety pr...

Conclusion: Hyperinsulinemia, insulin resistance, and the MetS are associated with the risk of BE in males but not females, suggesting these factors may contribute to the higher prevalence of BE in males.

This study investigated the therapeutic outcomes of LDJB-SG and predictors of type 2 diabetes (T2D) remission in Chinese patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 20 to 32.5 kg/m2. SETTING: A university hospital. METHODS: This retrospective study included 28 T2D patients with a BMI of 20 to 32.5 kg/m2 who underwent LDJB-SG. T2DM remission, weight loss, postoperative nutrition status, and complications at 1- and 3-year follow-up were assessed. Remission of T2DM was defined as a fasting blood glucose

ConclusionRYGB results in better weight loss compared to SG in Asians, but the rate of T2DM resolution/improvement and improvement of hypertension appears to be similar. In Asian patients without symptoms of gastro-esophageal reflux disease in whom metabolic surgery is performed mainly for T2DM and metabolic syndrome, SG may be the surgery of choice.

Cook Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) causes local chronic inflammation that increases risks of Barrett’s esophagus (BE) and esophageal adenocarcinoma (EA), yet symptomatic GERD is absent in approximately half of all such patients. Obesity exacerbates GERD and is also a component of metabolic syndrome (MetS). We evaluated the hypothesis that MetS is a GERD-independent mechanism by which obesity is associated with increased risks of BE and EA using data from the UK Clinical Practi...

Director chair, film slate and load horn. Here’s a proposal for you: If, by following the Wheat Belly lifestyle, a long list of conditions are reduced or reversed at no risk, almost no cost, reversing even chronic and potentially fatal conditions . . . does that mean that the notion of self-directed health might be on the horizon, i.e., putting control over health back in our own hands? I think it does. No, we will never implant our own defibrillators or take out our own gallbladders. But so many chronic health conditions afflicting modern humans recede that I believe that it is entirely reasonable to start talking a...

The absolute risk of carcinogenic progression given Barrett's esophagus (BE) is low and a majority of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EA) cases are diagnosed at first endoscopy without having had a prior diagnosis of BE. Therefore the research field has largely utilized case-control study designs with the implicit assumption that each case-group assessed (reflux, BE, EA) is representative of that stage in a linear progression towards cancer. To test the assumption that EA cases are a homogeneous group and therefore research findings may contribute to evidence-based prevention programs for diagnosed BE populations, we conducted ...
