Obesity is associated with Henoch-Schönlein Purpura Nephritis and development of end-stage renal disease in children. Ren Fail. 2019 Nov;41(1):1016-1020 Authors: Zheng X, Chen Q, Chen L Abstract Objectives: To explore the association of obesity with the occurrence of Henoch-Schönlein Purpura Nephritis (HSPN) and development of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in children with Henoch-Schönlein Purpura (HSP).Methods: This was a retrospective study of 446 pediatric patients with diagnosed HSP. All patients' demographic characteristics, clinical features, and laboratory data were collected from the electronic medical records in hospitals from January 2008 to December 2014, and the prognosis was followed up till December 2018. Multivariate logistic regression and the Cox proportional hazard regression were employed for exploring the potential risk factors for occurrence of HSPN and development of ESRD, respectively.Results: It is reported that 35.2% (n = 157) of HSP patients had HSPN. The multivariate logistic regression showed that obesity (OR = 3.82; 95% CI: 1.92-7.49; p

ConclusionsHypothalamic EPO plays a role in the central regulation of muscle and metabolic physiology while its decline contributes to aging and obesity physiology in a manner which is independent of peripheral EPO.

We report FDG PET/CT images of a 63-year-old woman referred for characterization of osteolytic lesions of the cervical spine. This patient with chronic renal failure had a history of follicular thyroid carcinoma with undifferentiated cells, treated by a total thyroidectomy, completed by radioactive iodine in 2017. Because of cancer history, a FDG PET/CT was performed and showed multiple moderately hypermetabolic osteolytic lesions of the spine from C3 to T1, with joint erosion on CT. A laminectomy was performed for cervical spinal cord decompression and revealed a gouty tophus.

Authors: Güler B, Özler S, Kadıoğlu N, Özkan E, Güngören MS, Çelen Ş Abstract Our aim was to investigate whether Antimullerian Hormone (AMH), complete blood count (CBC), Homeostasis model assessment (HOMA-IR), systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), and weight gain have any diagnostic value for the prediction of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in obese and non-obese pregnant patients. A prospective, case-control study was carried out, including 187 patients (93 obese, and 94 non-obese). CVD risk for each patient was evaluated according to the American College o...

Publication date: Available online 7 December 2019Source: Obesity Research &Clinical PracticeAuthor(s): Nicholas D. Spence, Joseph A. Skelton, Geoff D.C. BallAbstractPediatric obesity is a major public health issue. Lifestyle and behavioral interventions are the foundation of pediatric weight management; however, intervention effectiveness is compromised when families (children, youth, and/or parent[s]) discontinue care prematurely. Intervention attrition minimizes the potential health benefits derived from interventions, results in inefficient use of health services resources, and can magnify health disparities. Most ...

This study aims to determine if IER results in lower body mass index (BMI) z-score after 52 weeks in metabolically unhealthy adolescents with obesity compared with continuous energy restriction (CER).Methods/designThis is a prospective, randomised, multi-centre trial conducted in tertiary care settings, with three phases: jumpstart (weeks 0–4); intensive intervention (weeks 5–16); continued intervention and/or maintenance (weeks 17–52). During the jumpstart phase, all participants follow a very low energy diet (∼800 kcal/3350 kJ/day), then transition to their allocated intervention: IER or C...

Authors: Webster EK, Robinson LE, Wadsworth DD Abstract BACKGROUND: Activity breaks are an established way physical activity may be incorporated into the preschool day. The purpose of this study was to examine what factors influenced moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) during a teacher-implemented classroom-based activity break (CBAB) in a Head Start population. METHODS: Ten-minute CBAB was conducted over 2 days in a quasi-experimental design; 99 preschoolers (mean age 3.80 [0.65] y; 49.5% male) from a convenience sample participated. Accelerometers measured MVPA, fundamental motor skill competen...

ConclusionsTo our knowledge, ours is the first study to systematically describe the gastrointestinal bacterial composition of Kunming mice. Our findings provide a better understanding of the bacterial composition of Kunming mice and serves as a foundation for the study of precision medicine.

We describe the phenotype of the Prodh2 knock out mouse model and show that the lack of HYPDH in PH mouse models results in lower levels of urinary oxalate excretion, consistent with our previous metabolic tracer and siRNA-based knockdown studies. The double knockout mouse, Grhpr KO (PH2 model) and Prodh2 KO, prevented calcium-oxalate crystal deposition in the kidney, when placed on a 1% Hyp diet. These observations support the use of the Grhpr KO mice to screen HYPDH inhibitors in vivo. Altogether these data support HYPDH as an attractive therapeutic target for PH2 and PH3 patients.Graphical abstract
