CONCLUSIONS: Steroid receptor coactivators are critical regulators of human metabolism with pleiotropic and tissue-specific actions. We believe that our study will contribute to the better understanding of the complex multi-tissue interactions that are disrupted in obesity and can therefore lead in numerous cardiometabolic diseases. Further on, present findings suggest that SRC-3/AIB-1 could constitute possible future drug targets. PMID: 31322077 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Arieira C, Monteiro S, Xavier S, Dias de Castro F, Magalhães J, Marinho C, Pinto R, Costa W, Pinto Correia J, Cotter J Abstract Background: Obesity is one of the main factors of transient elastography (TE) failure, considering body mass index (BMI) ≥28 kg/m2 as a limiting factor. The XL probe was designed to overcome this limitation. Aim: To compare the feasibility of the M and XL probes in patients with BMI ≥ 28 kg/m2, to evaluate differences in mean values of controlled attenuation parameter (CAP) and liver stiffness measurement (LSM) between the two probes and find predictive fa...

A 12-month, randomized, single-blinded, diet-controlled study was conducted on 124 obese participants in the University Hospital Dubrava. Participants were assigned to the MD (n = 63) or the SHD (n = 61) and received the same amount of nutritional education and guidance on physical activity. The complet...

We present the first documented case of candida colitis caused by Candida Glabrata in a 56-year-old man with a personal history of morbid obesity and bariatric surgery. The presenting symptoms were diarrhea, rectal bleeding and septic shock. Diagnosis was obtained by histological and microbiological study of the colonoscopy biopsies. Gastroenterologists should be aware of Candida as a cause of colonic infection. Fungal culture is the key to identify specific Candida species and lead to an appropriate antifungal therapy.
