Experimentally derived incorporation rates and diet-to-tissue discrimination values for carbon and nitrogen stable isotopes in gray wolves (Canis lupus) fed a marine diet

Canadian Journal of Zoology, e-First Articles. Recent studies have noted the differential effects of marine versus terrestrial diets on the carbon and nitrogen stable isotope (13C and 15N, respectively) diet-to-tissue discrimination values and incorporation rates for omnivorous and carnivorous mammals. Inaccurate estimates of these parameters may result in misrepresentation of diet composition or in the timing of diet shifts. Here, we present the results of a diet-switch experiment designed to estimate diet-to-tissue discrimination values and incorporation rates for tissues of gray wolves (Canis lupus Linnaeus, 1758) fed a diet of Pacific salmon (genus Oncorhynchus Suckley, 1861). Our results demonstrate substantial differences in both parameters between wolves maintained on a marine (salmon) diet and wolves maintained on terrestrially sourced prey (beef, Bos taurus Linnaeus, 1758). Increased awareness of the significance of marine resources to omnivorous and carnivorous consumers, like wolves, highlights the importance of phenomenological and mechanistic understandings of the effects of fish and other marine prey on dietary investigations based on stable isotopes.

CONCLUSIONS: Young adult IS patients in Korea exhibit low awareness and poor management of their risk factors. Although the short-term outcome was relatively favorable in those patients, having SLE was associated with unfavorable outcomes. More attention needs to be paid for improving awareness and controlling risk factors in this population. PMID: 33029967 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS: In pSS, autoimmune CHB could be one of the first "indirect" signs of the disease in women of childbearing-age, in whom the diagnosis is confirmed several years later. Some maternal characteristics could be related with recurrent CHB, such as having an already-confirmed diagnosis of pSS and carrying the two Ro/La autoantibodies.

We report the case of an elderly male with SSc-SLE overlap syndrome combined with scleroderma renal crisis and SSc-TMA. Diagnoses: The patient has typical of SSc on the face and hands, combined with pulmonary artery hypertension, interstitial lung disease, heart failure and malignant hypertension, as well as SLE, lupus nephritis class V, and TMA, which were definitively diagnosed by clinical laboratory examination and renal histopathology. Interventions: The patient was treated with prednisone, cyclophosphamid, renin-angiotensin system inhibitors, diuretics, and acetylcysteine. Outcomes: The patient died suddenly ...

In this study, we focus on the relationship between IKZF1 polymorphisms and SLE susceptibility, cytokine levels, and clinical characteristics in the Chinese Han population. One thousand seventy-six subjects, including 400 SLE patients and 676 healthy controls, were included in this study. Three single nucleotide polymorphisms within IKZF1 containing rs4917014, rs11980379, and rs4132601 were genotyped in all subjects by an improved multiplex ligation detection reaction technique. 143 subjects from SLE patients were randomly selected for testing the levels of serum cytokines. The clinical characteristics of SLE patients wer...
