We report a case of malignant non-neural-type GCT in the lungs.A 77-year-old woman felt chest discomfort and dyspnea in July 2019. She had never smoked and had no medical history other than hypertension and diabetes mellitus.She was initially evaluated at a local hospital. Flexible bronchoscopy showed total occlusion of the right main bronchus by a mass-like lesion. Biopsy of the mass lesion revealed chronic inflammation. The patient visited for re-evaluation in September 2019. Rigid bronchoscopy showed worsening of the total obstruction of the right main bronchus by a tumor mass, such that the carina was not visible. Addi...

Authors: Huang M, Zheng J, Chen Z, You C, Huang Q Abstract Coronary collateral circulation (CCC) plays a crucial role in myocardial blood supply, especially for ischemic myocardium. Previous study has shown that neuregulin-1 is a prominent angiogenic factor in diabetic cardiomyopathy, whereas the relationship between neuregulin-1 and CCC has not been investigated. Thus, we aimed to investigate relationship between circulating neuregulin-1 levels and CCC in stable coronary artery disease patients.Coronary artery disease patients with a stenosis of ≥ 90% as evidenced by coronary angiography were included in our st...

Authors: Wu CC, Chang CS, Hsu CC, Wang CP, Tsai IT, Lu YC, Houng JY, Chang CC, Chung FM, Lee YJ, Hung WC Abstract Low-circulating levels of adiponectin (ADPN) are associated with obesity, diabetes mellitus, and coronary artery disease. On the contrary, some studies have demonstrated a link between relatively high levels of plasma ADPN and heart failure, atrial fibrillation, and adverse outcome. However, little is known about the relationship between ADPN level and prolonged QT interval. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between plasma ADPN levels and prolonged QT interval in patients with sta...

Authors: Fujino T, Yuzawa H, Kinoshita T, Koike H, Shinohara M, Akitsu K, Yao S, Yano K, Suzuki T, Yamada M, Ikeda T Abstract Catheter ablation is currently an established treatment for symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF). We focused on elderly patients with a high prevalence of AF and attempted to identify the clinical factors associated with unsuccessful ablation outcomes.Among 735 consecutive patients who underwent AF ablation procedures, 108 (14.7%, 66 men) aged ≥ 75 years were included. Of them, 80 had paroxysmal AF, and the remaining 28 non-paroxysmal AF. All patients underwent pulmonary vein (...

Thiazolidine-2,4-dione (TZD) is a privileged scaffold and an outstanding heterocyclic moiety in the field of drug discovery, which provides various opportunities ...

Authors: Syambani Ulhaq Z Abstract Dopamine is synthesized by tyrosine hydroxylase and is considered as a major catecholamine in the vertebrate retina, including zebrafish. However, little is known about the role of dopamine D2 receptor (DRD2) in retinal physiology. Therefore, to elucidate the role of DRD2 in the eye development and function in zebrafish, fish were exposed to fluphenazine, quinpirole, or combination of both. Subsequently, the eye size, optic nerve diameter (ONd), and visual background adaptation were evaluated. The results showed that fluphenazine (fluphenazine, DRD2 antagonist) decreased eye size ...

Authors: Bartol-Puyal FA, Isanta C, Ruiz-Moreno Ó, Abadia B, Calvo P, Pablo L Abstract Purpose: To compare the macular choroidal thinning between young healthy, aged healthy, young high myopic, and aged type 2 diabetic (T2D) patients using the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) grid and three-dimensional (3D) maps. Methods: A prospective study including 102 eyes of 51 healthy young subjects, 60 eyes of 30 healthy aged subjects, 24 eyes of 12 high myopic patients, and 110 eyes of 55 T2D patients. Choroidal thickness (CT) was examined with swept-source optical coherence tomography Triton DR...

BackgroundThe aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of refractive errors and their association with glycaemic control among adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in eastern China. MethodsA community‐based survey, including 913 adults with T2DM aged 30 to 89 years, was conducted. Refractive error was assessed by autorefraction, after which subjective refraction was performed. Ocular biometric parameters were measured by non‐contact partial coherence laser interferometry. Myopia was defined as spherical equivalent (SE) less than −0.50 dioptres (D), high myopia as SE less than −5.00 D,...
