In this study, we aimed to examine the prevalence, diagnostic patterns, common risk factors and functioning associated with comorbid mental illness among community residents in an urban population. Using data from Singapore Mental Health Study (SMHS) 2010 (n = 6616) and SMHS 2016 (n = 6126), we investigated the changes in the overall prevalence of comorbid mental illness and the diagnostic patterns of multiple affective disorders, affective disorder comorbid with substance misuse and multiple substance misuse. The most common diagnostic pair of comorbid affective disorder was major depressive disorder (MDD) and obsessive-c...

The aim of this study was to investigate the regulatory function of the non-coding microRNA-155 (miR-155) and suppressor of cytokine signaling 1 (SOCS1) in alcoholic hepatitis (AH) and its potential mechanism associated with the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathway. Levels of alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), albumin (ALB), total bilirubin (TBIL), malondialdehyde (MDA), and superoxide dismutase (SOD) were measured in a rat model of AH. The biological prediction website microRNA.org and dual-luciferase reporter gene assay were used to identify whether SOCS1 was a direct t...

The objective of the present study was to evaluate overall and disease-free survival rates of patients with advanced oropharynx squamous cell carcinoma, comparing surgery + radiotherapy with chemotherapy + radiotherapy. Medical records of patients were reviewed. Previously treated tumors were excluded. Clinical, demographic and microscopic information was collected, and p16 staining was performed. Kaplan-Meier survival curves were plotted. Forty-seven cases were included, 41 men and 6 women, having a mean age of 56.3 years. Most patients were smokers (85.1%) and consumed alcohol (74.5%). Patients were stage III (21.3%) or ...

AbstractPercutaneous transluminal septal myocardial ablation (PTSMA) has become a significant treatment for symptomatic patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM) despite maximal medical therapy. The target septal arteries usually arise from the left anterior descending artery (LAD). However, when septal perforators do not originate from the LAD, non-LAD septal perforators should be included as candidate-target septal branches that feed the hypertrophic septal myocardium, causing left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction. Data pertaining to the procedure remain limited. We aimed to investigate PTS...
