Celiac disease and portal hypertension: A causal association or just a Coincidence?

ConclusionCD is common in PHT of different etiology especially in cCLD, NCPH and Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), however etiological basis for this association is still to be defined. The likelihood of CD is higher in liver disease as compared to general population and these patients should be screened for CD.

I have posted a number of notes pertaining to wearables and wearable health ecosystems (see, for example:Sony Develops Health Wearable Providing Connectivity, Stipulating That It's Not a Smartwatch;The Evolution of"Wearable Health Ecosystems" and Associated Partnerships;Status Reports and Hospital Referrals from Wearable Health Ecosystems). I have not yet raised the issue of providing a virtual personal assistant (VPS) with these home-based health systems. This idea was discussed in a recent article (see:Wearables Hold the Key to Connected Health Monitoring) and below is an excerpt from it:As voice inter...

Authors: Zhao J, Chen J, Huang F, Wang J, Su W, Zhou J, Qi Q, Cao F, Sun B, Liu Z, Bellanti JA, Zheng S Abstract Accumulating evidence has revealed that human gingiva-derived mesenchymal stem cells (GMSCs) are emerging as a new line of mesenchymal stem cells and may have the potential to control or even treat autoimmune diseases through maintaining the balance between Th and Treg cells. Given that GMSCs have a robust immune regulatory function and regenerative ability, we investigated the effect of GMSCs on preventing T cell-mediated bone marrow failure (BMF) in a mouse model. We observed that GMSCs markedly improv...

The aim of the present study was to use a combination of various detection methods to examine the expression and clinical significance of CDK1 in thyroid cancer (THCA). We used in-house tissue microarrays, immunohistochemistry, public RNA-sequencing, gene microarrays, and meta-analyses to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the role of CDK1 in the occurr...

Authors: Fejes I, Ábrahám G, Légrády P Abstract Purpose: Authors investigated the effect of a university exam period on blood pressure (BP) and baroreflex-sensitivity (BRS) among healthy students.Materials and methods: Fifty-three healthy normotensive university students participated in the test. BP values and BRS were recorded once during a 14-week long semester and once during a 6-week long exam period with a Finometer device. The time-domain spontaneous BRS in lying position and after standing up was calculated with Nevrokard software. Students were divided into optimal, normal, high-...
