Predictive factors of renal impairment in HIV-infected patients on antiretroviral therapy: Results from the VACH longitudinal cohort study.

Predictive factors of renal impairment in HIV-infected patients on antiretroviral therapy: Results from the VACH longitudinal cohort study. Nefrologia. 2019 Apr 24;: Authors: Domingo P, Suarez-Lozano I, Gutierrez F, Estrada V, Knobel H, Palacios R, Antela A, Blanco JR, Fulladosa X, VACH Abstract BACKGROUND: The use of combination antiretroviral therapy has led to dramatic improvements in the life expectancy of HIV-infected persons. As result, the HIV population is aging and increasingly facing illnesses typically seen in the elderly, such as chronic kidney disease (CKD). METHODS: A retrospective longitudinal study was conducted using data from years 2010 and 2014 in all HIV-infected persons enrolled at the Spanish VACH cohort. We analyzed the prevalence and the predictive factors for developing CKD (estimated glomerular filtration rate, eGFR

In this study, therefore, the underlying mechanism of methylglyoxal on osteoporosis was studied using both animal and cell models. In the animal model, rats were treated with either methylglyoxal or saline as control. In the cell model, the macrophage RAW264.7 was treated with methylglyoxal or vehicle control. Following the treatment, animal samples were harvested for micro-CT and real-time polymerase chain reaction analyses. Cell samples were harvested for MTT assay, RT-PCR, and Western Blotting analyses. In both animals and cell cultures, methylglyoxal was shown to induce osteoclastogenesis by increased gene expression o...

The objective of this work was to investigate the effect of boletus polysaccharide (BPS) on diabetic hepatopathy in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) rats for the first time. The rats were fed with high-fat diet (HFD) for 4 weeks and induced with STZ by a single intraperitoneal injection to develop T2DM model. The HFD was given continually for another 4 weeks after diabetes induction, following the drugs of BPS (400 mg/kg bw/day) infused to stomach of rats once a day. After the administration, blood was drawn from the posterior orbital venous plexus of the inner canthus and the rats were then...

Obesity in children and adolescents remains a major medical problem. As the prevalence and severity of childhood obesity have grown, pediatricians have had to adapt their practices to contend with this epidemic. In this volume of The Journal, Belay et al report on the results of a survey of members of the American Academy of Pediatrics on attitudes and practices regarding overweight and obesity. They were able to compare results in 2017 with those in 2006 to evaluate trends. The results are encouraging as practicing pediatricians have increased awareness and practices related to care of children with obesity and their families.

It has been long known that the metabolic derangements of diabetes mellitus (both type 1 and type 2) could have important effects on the central nervous system, as assessed by many cognitive measures. This has been demonstrated in adults, as well as in children.

RobinsonABSTRACTGuidelines suggest culturing clinically uninfected bone at the margin after surgical resection for osteomyelitis, but little published evidence supports this procedure. To investigate whether culturing marginal bone after completing resection of infected bone affected antibiotic use or further surgical intervention, we collected data on sequential patients undergoing amputation for a foot infection at our tertiary care hospital between Janu...

We examined the mediating role of experiencing recent violence in the relationship between stigma and depression among WLHIV in Canada. METHODS: We conducted a cohort study with WLHIV in three Canadian provinces. Recent violence was assessed through self-reported experiences of control, physical, sexual or verbal abuse in the past three months. At Time 1 (2013-2015) three forms of stigma were assessed (HIV-related, racial, gender) and at Time 2 (2015-2017) only HIV-related stigma was assessed. We conducted structural equation modelling (SEM) using the maximum likelihood estimation method with Time 1 data to identi...
