TYPE 2 diabetes: The amount of people living with the dangerous condition of having high blood sugar levels has increased exponentially. It is imperative that one is aware of the warning signs of this condition. What are the three main symptoms to spot?
Conclusion: Moderate quality evidence suggests that OMTh is effective for CNCP patients. There was a significant association between visceral OMTh and reduced pain severity and disability. More robust, high-quality randomized controlled trials with larger sample sizes are required to further explore the effectiveness of the OMTh in the management of CNCP.

Authors: Wang K, Pu Y, Zhang Y, Wang P Abstract The intima media thickness (IMT) of the common carotid artery (CCA) can be used to predict the risk of atherosclerosis. Many image segmentation techniques have been used for IMT measurement. However, severe noise in the ultrasound image can lead to erroneous segmentation results. To improve the robustness to noise, a fully automatic method, based on an improved Otsu's method and an adaptive wind-driven optimization technique, is proposed for estimating the IMT (denoted as "improved Otsu-AWDO"). First, an advanced despeckling filter, i.e., " Nagare's fil...
ORGANOPHOSPHATES IN MECONIUM OF NEWBORN BABIES WHOSE MOTHERS RESIDED IN AGRICULTURAL AREAS OF THAILAND. Southeast Asian J Trop Med Public Health. 2020 Mar 02;51(1):77-87 Authors: Onchoi C, Kongtip P, Nankongnab N, Chantanakul S, Sujirarat D, Woskie S Abstract Organophosphates (OPs) are widely used for pest and weed control in many countries including Thailand. In addition to causing environmental pollution, OPs affect human health by overstimulating neurotoxicants, and OP exposure during pregnancy can lead to adverse health effects of mothers and their fetuses. Using gas chromatography-mass spectrometr...

Authors: An YW, Liu HQ, Zhou ZQ, Wang JC, Jiang GY, Li ZW, Wang F, Jin HT Abstract The aim of the present study was to explore the antitumor effects of sinoporphyrin sodium (DVDMS)‑mediated photodynamic therapy (PDT) and sonodynamic therapy (SDT) in glioma, and to reveal the underlying mechanisms. The uptake of DVDMS by U‑118 MG cells was detected by flow cytometry (FCM). A 630‑nm semiconductor laser and 1‑MHz ultrasound were used to perform PDT and SDT, respectively. Cell proliferation and apoptosis were evaluated using the Cell Counting Kit‑8 assay, FCM and Hoechst 33258 staining, respectively. Western ...
