Inhibition of myostatin signal pathway may be involved in low-intensity pulsed ultrasound promoting bone healing

ConclusionsThe results indicate that LIPUS may promote bone healing through inhibition of the myostatin signal pathway.

In conclusion, our study revealed that FOXO1, which was a target gene of miR-182, played an essential role in LIPUS-promoted osteogenic differentiation. This new molecular insight throws light upon the application of LIPUS therapy on periodontal bone defect. PMID: 31401188 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: cfDNA does not appear to be the appropriate genetic test in fetuses with a NT above the 99th centile, given that 12-19% of the genetic anomalies were undetectable with the current tests. Additionally, 6.6% of fetuses will have a major structural abnormality identifiable using first-trimester ultrasound. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Publication date: Available online 10 May 2019Source: IDCasesAuthor(s): Sara Belga, Will Chen, Gavin Low, Carlos CerveraAbstractXanthogranulomatous (XG) prostatitis is a rare form of granulomatous prostatitis characterized by a benign inflammatory process of non-specific etiology that clinically may mimic carcinoma. Few cases have been reported in the English language medical literature, with only four reported cases presenting as prostatic abscesses. A 70-year-old male with type 2 diabetes mellitus and two previous kidney transplants presented with septic shock secondary to Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteremia 4 days after u...

Conclusion This paper summarizes the current findings regarding the anti-colitis activity of plant-derived alkaloids and shows how these alkaloids exhibit significant and beneficial effects in alleviating colonic inflammation. These natural alkaloids are not only promising agents for IBD treatment but are also components for developing new wonder drugs. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms or toxicological evaluation of most plant-derived alkaloids still require much scientific research, and their actual efficacies for IBD patients have not been verified well in field research. Thus, further clinical trials to elu...

In this study, Lactobacillus plantarum (L. plantarum) KLDS1.0318 preserved in our laboratory was orally administered to CTX-treated mice to explore its potential effects to attenuate the toxic effects of CTX-induced by modulating intestinal immune response, promoting intestinal integrity and improving metabolic profile. BALB/c mice were randomly divided into six groups including normal control group (NC; non-CTX with sterile saline), model control group (MC; CTX-treated with sterile saline), CTX-treated with L. plantarum KLDS1.0318 (10 mL/kg) groups with three different doses (KLDS1.0318-L, 5 × 107 CFU/mL; KLDS1.0318...

This report supports that the novel mutation of RNF139 p.Q650R probably serve as a key role in HBs progression. Introduction Central nervous system hemangioblastomas (HBs) are benign tumors which usually occur in cerebellum (1), and the pathogenesis of HBs is still unknown. According to the revised World Health Organization (WHO) classification of tumors of the nervous system published in 2000, HBs were classified to the tumors of uncertain histogenesis. The morphology code of the International Classification of Diseases for Oncology (ICD-O)is 9161/1, grade I. HBs are composed of mesenchymal cells and abundant capi...

This article presents the case of a 61-year-old man with right ankle tenderness and malaise. Ultrasound-guided biopsy and pathological examination were performed and the pathological diagnosis was a CCS. The patient underwent a below-knee amputation and had no local recurrence or metastasis at the 6‑month follow-up. PMID: 30623235 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Bellinger CR, Sharma D, Dotson T, Ruiz J, Parks G, Haponik EF Abstract OBJECTIVES: Targeted therapies for non-small-cell lung cancers (NSCLCs) are based on the presence of driver mutations such as epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and the echinoderm microtubule-associated protein-like 4-anaplastic lymphoma kinase (EML4-ALK) translocation. Endobronchial ultrasound-guided-transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is a first-line modality for diagnosing and staging NSCLC. A quality improvement protocol maximizing tissue acquisition for molecular analysis has not been previously described. METHODS...
