CONCLUSIONS: Contrary to expectation, the combination of poor mental functioning and chronic disease diagnosis did not have a strong synergistic effect on cost. Mental and general medical conditions appear to have independent effects on health care costs. PMID: 31378194 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ObjectiveTo compare serum anti –malondialdehyde–acetaldehyde (anti‐MAA) antibody levels and MAA expression in lung tissue from patients with rheumatoid arthritis–associated interstitial lung disease (RA‐ILD) to those found in controls.MethodsAnti ‐MAA antibody (IgA, IgM, IgG) concentrations were measured in patients with RA‐ILD and compared to those of RA patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and RA patients without lung disease. Associations between anti‐MAA antibody with RA‐ILD were assessed using multivariable logistic regression. Lung tissue from patients with RA‐ILD...

te; G Abstract Immune-mediated inflammatory diseases (IMIDs) encompass a wide range of seemingly unrelated conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, inflammatory bowel diseases, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and systemic lupus erythematosus. Despite differing etiologies, these diseases share common inflammatory pathways, which lead to damage in primary target organs and frequently to a plethora of systemic effects as well. The purinergic signaling complex comprising extracellular nucleotides and nucleosides and their receptors, the P2 and P1 purinergic receptors, res...

AbstractPurposeComorbidities, such as kidney disease (CKD), increase the likelihood of falls and fall-related injuries. Despite the focus of most research in this population on older adults, falls are a significant cause of injury throughout adulthood. Therefore, we aimed to describe the epidemiology of falls in middle-aged adults with kidney diseases.MethodsWe analyzed falls and fall-related injuries among middle-aged adults (45 –65 years old) with and without CKD included in the 2014 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) utilizing multivariate logistic regression and complex sample survey data ana...

Conclusions: Results of this study demonstrate the high synthetic efficiency, high inhibitory potency, high stability, excellent biodistribution profile, and in vivo imaging potency of 123/125I-FIC as a novel p38α imaging probe. 123I-FIC is thus a promising probe for qualitative diagnosis of inflammatory diseases.

Rationale: For hip or knee arthroplasty, it is essential to develop a satisfied peripheral nerve block method that will benefit elderly patients or patients who are contraindicated to neuraxial anesthesia. Patients concerns: Patient in Case 1 suffered from the right intertrochanteric fracture, combined with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; Patient in Case 2 suffered from hip osteoarthritis; combined with ankylosing spondylitis; Patient in Case 3 suffered from rheumatoid arthritis, combined with ischemic encephalopathy. Diagnosis: Case 1: Right intertrochanteric fracture, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease....
