Profile of Community-Acquired Acute Kidney Injury Defined Using RIFLE Criteria Among Medical In-Patients: A Prospective Descriptive Single Centre Study.

Profile of Community-Acquired Acute Kidney Injury Defined Using RIFLE Criteria Among Medical In-Patients: A Prospective Descriptive Single Centre Study. J Assoc Physicians India. 2019 Nov;67(11):14-18 Authors: Bagai S, Prakash A, Agrawal A Abstract Aim: To determine the proportion of patients who have Acute Kidney Injury (AKI), identify severity of AKI using RIFLE criteria and to identify associated factors with AKI. Methods: One thousand consecutive medical in-patients were screened for AKI and severity assessed using RIFLE criteria in tertiary care hospital in Northern India. Patients with medical renal disease and obstructive uropathy were excluded. Serum creatinine of all patients were done on days 0, 3, 7 and 14. CKD cases were also excluded. AKI patients were followed at 4 weeks and 3 months. Results: Amongst 1000 patients screened, 65 had AKI. 27(41.5%), 15(23.0%) and 23(35.38%) patients belonged to risk, injury and failure classes of AKI respectively as per RIFLE criteria, and there was incremental risk of mortality (25.92%, 46.33% and 86.95%, p

This study aims to explore the relationship between miR-195 and CD40 and its effect on Th17/Treg balance in rats with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).MethodsWe established rat models of NAFLD and made seven groups, Normal group (without modeling), Model group (model rats), NC group (model rats injected with negative control vector), miR-195 OE group (model rats injected with miR-195 mimic), anti-miR-195 group (model rats injected with miR-195 inhibitor), Si-CD40 group (model rats injected with CD40 silencing vector), and anti-miR-195+Si-CD40 group (model rats injected with miR-195 inhibitor and CD40 silencing vec...

Conclusion: EBRT can yield favorable local control in HCC with IVC and/or RA involvement. Systemic treatment may be more indicated as factors reflecting tumor aggressiveness were significant, and first distant failure is common. PMID: 31977276 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that people who die by suicide while under the influence of alcohol are more likely to be under acute stress (e.g. separation) and not have earlier psychiatric conditions, except substance use. This highlights the importance of more strict alcohol policies, but also the need to improve substance use treatment. PMID: 31973775 [PubMed - in process]

Protein kinase C promotes choline transporter‑like protein 1 function via improved cell surface expression in immortalized human hepatic cells. Mol Med Rep. 2020 Feb;21(2):777-785 Authors: Ishikawa T, Suwanai H, Shikuma J, Suzuki R, Yamanaka T, Odawara M, Inazu M Abstract Choline is used to synthesize phospholipids and a lack of choline induces a number of liver‑related diseases, including non‑alcoholic steatohepatitis. The current study characterized the choline uptake system, at molecular and functional levels, in the immortalized human hepatic cell line, Fa2N‑4, to identify the spe...

Identification of hub genes and key pathways of dietary advanced glycation end products‑induced non‑alcoholic fatty liver disease by bioinformatics analysis and animal experiments. Mol Med Rep. 2020 Feb;21(2):685-694 Authors: Wang J, Liu H, Xie G, Cai W, Xu J Abstract Non‑alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a common chronic liver disease. Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) negatively affect the liver and accelerate NAFLD progression; however, the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. The present study aimed to examine the effect and mechanism of dietary AGEs on the mouse liver using bioi...

Humans and monkeys are dead-end hosts for these viruses. Recent trends in epidemiological data suggest both virus incidences are steadily increasing and their geographical distribution expandi...

Although germline knockdown of NPY-Y1R in mice alleviates high-fat-diet-induced obesity and increases CPT1α levels in the liver, the role of the Y1 receptor in specific tissues has not been studied.Main methodsMCD diet is the most widely used method to establish a model of lean NASH in a short time. We therefore evaluated the role of liver NPY-Y1R in NASH progression.Key findi...
