Publication date: Available online 24 January 2020Source: Journal of Genetics and GenomicsAuthor(s): Qianru Huang, Xu Liu, Yujia Zhang, Jingyao Huang, Dan Li, Bin LiAbstractRegulatory T (Treg) cells, a subtype of CD4+ T cells with distinct immunosuppressive, are vital for maintaining immune homeostasis in healthy people. FOXP3 (Forkhead box protein P3), a member of the forkhead–winged-helix family, is the pivotal transcriptional factor of Treg. The expression, post-translational modifications and protein complex of FOXP3 present a great impact on the functional stability and immune plasticity of Treg in vivo. In part...

Abstract Optimal hydration is essential to health, yet many common health problems of older adults are exacerbated by suboptimal hydration, including falls, adverse medication events, and urinary tract infections to name a few. Understanding dehydration in older adults is difficult, and causes for inadequate intake are multifocal. The current article provides important care guidelines on assessing risk and providing essential interventions to prevent dehydration. [Journal of Gerontological Nursing, 46(2), 19-30.].

This article reviews the state of the art and major unanswered questions related to ocular vascular anatomy and physiology, ocular imaging techniques, clinical findings in glaucoma and other eye diseases, and mechanistic modeling predictions, while laying a path for integrating clinical observations with mathematical models and artificial intelligence. Viable alternatives for integrated data analysis are proposed that aim to overcome the limitations of standard statistical approaches and enable individually tailored precision medicine in ophthalmology.

González-SanJosé, Pilar MuñizAbstractVascular remodeling in hypertension and diabetes is characterized by a low-grade inflammation of the arterial wall and enhanced oxidative stress. Wine pomace products attenuate hyperglycemia and hypertension through reduction of oxidative stress and inflammation by their polyphenol composition. The aim of the study was to assess the influence of the wine poma...

Authors: Han SA, Park HY, Kim HW, Choi JI, Kang DY, Kim HL, Chung JH, Shin BC Abstract Acute toxic-metabolic encephalopathy (TME) is an acute condition of global cerebral dysfunction in the absence of primary structural brain disease. Severe hypophosphatemia leads to muscle weakness and involves the diaphragm but hypophosphatemia-induced TME is very rare. Herein, we report the case of a 43-year-old woman with encephalopathy with severe hypophosphatemia during continuous renal replacement therapy. She presented with features of oliguric acute kidney injury on diabetic kidney disease due to volume depletion. At admis...

Conclusion: Incidence and risk of postoperative AKI were significantly higher in PA patients after surgical treatment. High ACR on the tumor side and high LI were associated with higher risk of AKI in PA patients compared to pheochromocytoma patients. PMID: 31969923 [PubMed]

Conclusion: The SBP at 7:00 AM, in addition to the 24-hour mSBP, is also associated with eGFR deterioration in patients with diabetic CKD, particularly in those with CKD stage 3-5. PMID: 31969922 [PubMed]

We report the epidemiological, clinical, laboratory, and radiological characteristics and treatment and clinical outcomes of these patients.MethodsAll patients with suspected 2019-nCoV were admitted to a designated hospital in Wuhan. We prospectively collected and analysed data on patients with laboratory-confirmed 2019-nCoV infection by real-time RT-PCR and next-generation sequencing. Data were obtained with standardised data collection forms shared by the International Severe Acute Respiratory and Emerging Infection Consortium from electronic medical records. Researchers also directly communicated with patients or their ...
