Constipation affects about half of patients with advanced illness and nearly all terminally ill patients receiving opioids. Constipation can be very distressing, leading to abdominal pain/distension, anorexia, nausea/vomiting, faecal impaction, intestinal obstruction, urinary retention and incontinence; reducing quality of life. A thorough assessment is critical to diagnose it, assess its severity, impact and associated symptoms, and find the cause. Management includes explanations to the patient/family, treating reversible causes (where appropriate) and optimizing non-pharmacological treatments and drugs.

Abstract Pregnant rabbits are a common nonrodent model for reproductive safety evaluation in preclinical drug development. During reproductive toxicology studies, rabbits are prone to decreased food consumption and anorexia. When persistent or severe, this condition can lead to hepatic lipidosis and pregnancy toxemia, which may confound the interpretation of study results. Non-Esterified Fatty Acids (NEFAs) have been used in veterinary production medicine to evaluate the impact of diet on the energy balance of pregnant animals. In the current study, sustained-release buprenorphine was used to suppress the appetite...

This study assesses the impact of a clinical refeeding guideline on weight restoration, length of stay, rate of refeeding complications, and rehospitalizations. METHOD: This retrospective study included patient records of 107 participants aged 13-55 years with a diagnosis of AN, admitted for at least 7 days for renutrition before and after introduction of the refeeding guideline. Weight evolution graphs were rated by 2 clinical experts independently. Binary logistic regression models were erected to identify clinical outcomes associated independently with the guideline as well as to control for potential confounding b...

In this study, we found that young male CD2F1 mice (8-week old) treated with the chemotherapeutic agent cisplatin (2.5 mg/kg) presented marked loss of muscle and bone mass. Myotubes exposed to bone conditioned medium from cisplatin-treated mice showed severe atrophy (−33%) suggesting a bone to muscle crosstalk. To test this hypothesis, mice were administered cisplatin in combination with an antiresorptive drug to determine if preservation of bone mass has an effect on muscle mass and strength following chemotherapy treatment. Mice received cisplatin alone or combined with zoledronic acid (ZA; 5 μg/kg), a bisphosph...

Low serum albumin levels resulting from inflammation-induced capillary leakage or disease-related anorexia during acute illness are associated with poor outcomes. We investigated the relationship of nutritional status and inflammation with low serum albumin levels and 30-day mortality in a large cohort.

ConclusionIn selected cases, endoscopic management is more cost-effective, minimally invasive, has less post-operative complications, and leads to a more expeditious recovery. Therefore, the role of therapeutic endoscopy for gastric perforations secondary to foreign bodies should always be considered.
