Can Chinese T2D patients with BMI 20-32.5 kg/m2 benefit from loop  duodenojejunal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy?

This study investigated the therapeutic outcomes of LDJB-SG and predictors of type 2 diabetes (T2D) remission in Chinese patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 20 to 32.5 kg/m2. SETTING: A university hospital. METHODS: This retrospective study included 28 T2D patients with a BMI of 20 to 32.5 kg/m2 who underwent LDJB-SG. T2DM remission, weight loss, postoperative nutrition status, and complications at 1- and 3-year follow-up were assessed. Remission of T2DM was defined as a fasting blood glucose

The objective of this study was to estimate AMU in a broiler chicken farm in Pakistan over a five-year period and to extrapolate national AMU in commercial broiler farming. Between 2013 and 2017, we monitored AMU in 30 flocks from a commercial broiler farm in Punjab, the most populous province of Pakistan. The amount of antimicrobials administered was calculated in milligram/population unit of the final flock weight (mg/fPU) and in used daily dose (UDD). The annual on-farm antimicrobial use was 250.84 mg of active ingredient per kilogram of the final flock weight. This consumption intensity exceeds the amount of antimicrob...

The objective of this study was to review the current status of drug-induced hypomagnesemia and its adverse effects on cardiovascular disease (CVD) and hypertension. Since magnesium is a potent vasodilator, which modulates vasomotor tone, peripheral blood flow and hypertension, its deficiency could have significant cardiovascular and blood pressure (BP) effects.Areas covered: Studies have shown that several factors can contribute to magnesium deficiency including age, diet, disease, and certain drugs such as diuretics and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). For an updated perspective of drug-induced hypomagnesemia, a Medline se...

Authors: Chen S, Ji R, Shi X, Wang Z, Zhu D Abstract The aim of our study was to assess the efficacy, safety, and prognostic factors of drug-eluting bead transarterial chemoembolization (DEB-TACE) in Chinese hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients. Patients (n=102) diagnosed as primary HCC were consecutively enrolled in this retrospective cohort study. Treatment responses were assessed following the modified Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors. Progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) were evaluated, and adverse events (AEs) as well as liver function-related laboratory indexes of all DEB-T...
