Conclusions: Muscle damage induced by interaction between FA and statin is a potentially life-threatening complication, leading to contraindication of this association in France. This is to be reminded especially because FA is about to get FDA approval and should soon be available in the United States.

Over 2.6 million ED visits across the United States result in a primary diagnosis of urinary tract infection.1 While much attention has been paid to reducing blood culture contamination rates in the emergency department,2-9 a substantial gap remains in projects aimed at reducing contamination in clean-catch urine specimens obtained in the ED setting. Obtaining an adequate urine culture is clinically important to the care of several vulnerable patient groups, including patients with diabetes or compromised immune responses, those with high risk for subsequent urosepsis, previous antibiotic resistant infections, multiple ant...

Publication date: Available online 20 August 2019Source: Progress in Lipid ResearchAuthor(s): Zijian Fang, Susan Pyne, Nigel J. PyneAbstractThe increased adipose tissue mass of obese individuals enhances the risk of metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. During pathological expansion of adipose tissue, multiple molecular controls of lipid storage, adipocyte turn-over and endocrine secretion are perturbed and abnormal lipid metabolism results in a distinct lipid profile.
