New insights into the interplay between autophagy, gut microbiota and inflammatory responses in IBD.
New insights into the interplay between autophagy, gut microbiota and inflammatory responses in IBD. Autophagy. 2019 Jul 09;:1-14 Authors: Larabi A, Barnich N, Nguyen HTT Abstract One of the most significant challenges of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) research is to understand how alterations in the symbiotic relationship between the genetic composition of the host and the intestinal microbiota, under impact of specific environmental factors, lead to chronic intestinal inflammation. Genome-wide association studies, followed by functional studies, have identified a role for numerous autophagy genes in IBD, especially in Crohn disease. Studies using in vitro and in vivo models, in addition to human clinical studies have revealed that autophagy is pivotal for intestinal homeostasis maintenance, gut ecology regulation, appropriate intestinal immune responses and anti-microbial protection. This review describes the latest researches on the mechanisms by which dysfunctional autophagy leads to disrupted intestinal epithelial function, gut dysbiosis, defect in anti-microbial peptide secretion by Paneth cells, endoplasmic reticulum stress response and aberrant immune responses to pathogenic bacteria. A better understanding of the role of autophagy in IBD pathogenesis may provide better sub-classification of IBD phenotypes and novel approaches for disease management.

ConclusionThe NPCQLQ-C and NPCQLQ-A are the first disease-specific QoL scales to be developed for people living with NPC. This novel approach to scale development values the experiential, real life impact of living with NPC and focused on the lived-experiences and impact on QoL. The scales will enable healthcare professionals and researchers to have a better understanding and quantifiable measurement of the impact of living with NPC on a patient ’s daily life.
ConclusionsThe experience of changes in taste was common yet highly variable in its presentation and resultant changes in food preferences. Taste changes did not always resolve soon after treatment completion. Future research should identify ways to manage this symptom in pediatric cancer patients.
Shaggy aorta is defined by diffuse, ulcerated plaques arising in the descending thoracic aorta and often extending through the abdominal and visceral segment. Two types of emboli originating from atherosclerotic plaques can be distinguished: thromboemboli and atheroemboli (cholesterol crystal emboli). These plaques may lead to visceral, pelvic, or peripheral embolization syndromes and have been shown to be associated with a higher 30- day mortality after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) and open aortic repair (OAR).
The objective of this study was to report on long-term survival of major lower limb amputees after rehabilitation as well as to identify factors leading to poorer survival.

TNF inhibitors still represent the first biologic after conventional synthetic DMARD (csDMARD) in the majority of patients according to registry data. This was p...

Here, we describe the generation of six human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines from dermal fibroblasts of three pairs of monozygotic twins discordant for PD. We used non-integrating Sendai virus a...

The obtained MUSIi012-A cell line maintained the pluripotent phenotype, the ability to differentiate into all three germ layers, and a normal karyotype.
