Authors: Zhao Z, Zhou Y, Wang J, Zhang T, Li J, Zhang B, Li Q, Deng S Abstract The present study aimed to determine whether 18F-FDG PET/CT performed before and/or after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) can predict clinical outcomes in acute leukemia (AL). A total of 79 examinations comprising 72 patients with AL who underwent 18F-FDG PET/CT before and/or after allo-HSCT were retrospectively enrolled between January 2011 and January 2019. Outcomes were assessed using overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS). A total of 63 examinations were PET-positive, while 16 examination...

CONCLUSION: In addition to arterial hypertension, the predominant male sex and the typical age distribution, we found that cases of epistaxis often received anticoagulation therapy. This study showed an increase of epistaxis along with rising prescriptions of NOAC. In contrast, no increase of severe epistaxis cases leading to hospitalization was found.

Conclusion: We found similar TIR and comparatively higher TBR frequencies, particularly during sleep, than those that were previously reported. Possible reasons for the higher frequency of TBR include differences in the quality of insulin treatment and diabetes care between the present study and the European studies. The utilization of advanced technologies, such as a predictive low-glucose suspend-function pump or closed-loop therapy, can reduce the frequency of TBR, with a consequent increase in TIR frequency and comprehensive improvement in glycemic control.Horm Res Paediatr

CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that SCZ is not overrepresented among COVID-19 hospitalized patients, but SCZ is associated with excess COVID-19 mortality, confirming the existence of health disparities described in other somatic diseases. PMID: 32933762 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study provides direct evidence for the contribution of gut microbiota to the cognitive decline during normal aging and suggests that restoring microbiota homeostasis in the elderly may improve cognitive function. On Nutraceutical Senolytics https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2020/05/on-nutraceutical-senolytics/ Nutraceuticals are compounds derived from foods, usually plants. In principle one can find useful therapies in the natural world, taking the approach of identifying interesting molecules and refining them to a greater potency than naturally occurs in order to produce a usefully large therape...

Conclusion: The obesity-related SNP rs545854 was correlated with the serum uric acid level and risk of hyperuricemia in a male Chinese population. Therefore, men carrying this SNP could benefit from limiting their meat consumption to prevent hyperuricemia. These findings suggest an underlying genetic link between obesity and hyperuricemia worthy of further exploration. Introduction Serum uric acid (SUA) is a final product of the metabolic breakdown of purine oxidation (1). Since humans lack the gene for uricase that converts uric acid into a soluble form, the human uric acid level tends to be higher than that of othe...

ordero MJ, Bravo Soto J Abstract INTRODUCTION: the appearance of metabolic syndrome (MS) among renal recipients is one of the greatest post-transplant complications and is associated with an increased risk of graft failure and high rates of obesity and new onset diabetes. OBJECTIVE: the objective of this work is to identify the relationship between the glomerular filtration rate measured by two different methods and the components of the metabolic syndrome and their combinations in kidney transplant patients according to gender. MATERIAL AND METHOD: the samples consisted of 500 kidney transplant recipien...

In this study, researchers analysed data of millions of British patients between 1995 and 2015 to see if this claim held true. They tracked people who were obese at the start of the study, defined as people with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more, who had no evidence of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes at this point. They found these people who were obese but "metabolically healthy" were at higher risk of developing heart disease, strokes and heart failure than people of normal weight. No such thing as 'fat but fit', major study finds Several studies in the pas...
