ConclusionsYGY has obvious reversal effects on the abnormal symptoms of adenine-induced CKD and the abnormal symptoms of rats with hypothyroidism and male reproductive hypotension. Its mechanism is related to its ability to regulate the HIF1α-STAT5 pathway.Graphical abstract

Abstract Organic compounds and vegetable origin oils are subject to scratiny in the photonics and nonlinear optics area, due to their high non-linear response: a characteristic linked to the molecular nature of these compounds and their own chemical bond. In the food industry, quick and non-invasive studies are needed to evaluate the nutritional quality of edible products. The nonlinear optical response of 4 vegetable oils was analyzed: extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), extra virgin sesame oil (EVSO), extra refined linseed oil (ERLO) and virgin avocado oil (VAVO), using the Z-scan technique. Where the third order ele...

Publication date: December 2019Source: Journal of Food Composition and Analysis, Volume 84Author(s): Norma Samman, Maria Constanza RossiAbstractFood composition data play a key role in areas such as nutrition, agriculture, food industry, and trade. Therefore it is still essential to have recent and reliable data on the composition of the main foodstuffs that a country produces and consumes. In Argentina the objective is to form a national network of institutions to provide information and data to a national food composition database (NFCDB), established in a national government institution and as an ongoing activity with s...

TARGETING TARGETED TREATMENT FOR IMMUNE AND NON-IMMUNE KIDNEY DISEASES. Trans Am Clin Climatol Assoc. 2019;130:88-99 Authors: Tsokos GC, Tsokos MG Abstract We have found that calcium calmodulin kinase IV is increased in T cells, podocytes, and mesangial cells from patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, as well as in lupus-prone mice, podocytes of patients with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, and in mice injected with doxorubicin. We showed that this accounts for aberrant T cell function and glomerular damage. Using nanoparticles (nlg) loaded with a small drug inhibitor of calcium calmodulin ki...

Authors: McGill RL, Lacson EK Abstract INTRODUCTION: Nephrologists have increased arteriovenous access placement in patients with chronic kidney disease. Not yet usable 'maturing' arteriovenous fistulas and grafts are nearly as common as mature arteriovenous fistulas or grafts. Little has been reported about patients initiating haemodialysis with unready arteriovenous fistulas or grafts. METHODS: The United States Renal Data System records for all adult patients initiating haemodialysis with central venous catheters between July 2010 and December 2011. Patients were categorized by whether a maturing arterioveno...

Authors: Tsifi A, Papaxoinis G, Diamantopoulos P, Mantzourani M, Antoniadou V, Halioti A, Gogas H Abstract In the current report we present the case of a patient experiencing a life-threatening drug-drug interaction involving the concurrent administration of capecitabine and brivudine. A 65- year-old female with metastatic breast cancer was commenced on brivudine for Herpes Zoster, while on capecitabine treatment, by a physician unfamiliar with the potential repercussions of this drug-drug interaction. As a result, she developed skin rash, severe oral mucositis, and severe and prolonged pancytopenia. These side eff...

Authors: Wang X, Ho MJ Abstract Health professions students will invariably confront professionalism dilemmas. These early encounters significantly influence future professional attitudes and behaviours. Heretofore, studies concerning professionalism dilemmas experienced by health professions students across disciplines have been limited. To address this issue, we recruited 56 students with clinical experience from the National Taiwan University College of Medicine in the nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, medical technology, occupational therapy, and physiotherapy programs to participate in this research to compare hea...

This article reviews relationships between mild to moderate essential hypertension and chronic kidney disease with a focus on the role of APOL1 in development of hypertension. Available evidence strongly supports that APOL1 renal-risk variants associate with glomerulosclerosis in African Americans, which then causes secondary hypertension, not with essential hypertension per se.
