Long-Term Potable Effects of Alkalescent Mineral Water on Intestinal Microbiota Shift and Physical Conditioning.

Conclusion: We observed significantly reduced (1) weight gaining ratio (average -1.86%, up to -3.3%), (2) visceral fat accumulation ratio (average -4.30%, up to -9.1%), and (3) changes in gut microbiota population. All these consequences could support the "health benefit" functionality of AMW. PMID: 31827547 [PubMed]

Conclusion: While providing potential clinical benefit, CAR T cell therapy utilizes resources across the therapeutic spectrum, and increasing use of this therapeutic modality can create challenges in institutional resource capacity. Identifying these resources will allow for better care delivery and allocation of funds. Further refinement of CAR T cell products and improvements in CAR T cell-related toxicity management may permit safer delivery of this therapy and reduce costs per patient. Additional analysis of resource utilization among patients treated with commercial CAR T cell products, as well as comparison with alte...

Discussion: A large amount of data from high-quality RCTs is needed for the extensive clinical application of herbal medicine. The CRRICHTrial-II will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of ICH-012 in a safer time window between 6 and 72 h and investigate the possible mechanisms of action and direction of herbal medicine in the haematoma growth after HICH. Trial registration at ClinicalTrial.gov, ID: NCT03354026, is registered on 23rd Nov. 2017. PMID: 30224926 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS Treatment of patients with symptomatic LSS with a PLO procedure provided substantial enlargement of the area of the spinal canal and favorable clinical results for both disease-specific and non-disease-specific outcome measures at all follow-up time points out to 5 years. Future research is needed to compare this technique to alternative therapies for LSS. PMID: 29856305 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractPurpose of ReviewTo make a brief review on the pre-treatment evaluation of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) with positron emission tomography/computed tomography with 18F-Fluoro-deoxy-glucose (18F-FDG PET/CT) and to discuss the use of this method after treatment, with emphasis on the evaluation of therapeutic response.Recent FindingsThe18F-FDG PET/CT pre-treatment evaluation is recommended at III –IV staging to determine metastasis foci. At post-evaluation, the use of18F-FDG PET/CT is very important to confirm the therapeutic response based on its high negative predictive value (NPV), mostly when...

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a stern warning Wednesday to companies marketing medical marijuana to cure or inhibit cancer — including mesothelioma — and cautioned patients about unsubstantiated claims. The FDA sent warning letters to four particular companies, citing deceptive marketing in violation of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. “We don’t let companies market products that deliberately prey on sick people with baseless claims that their substance can shrink or cure cancer,” said FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb in a press release Wednesday. “And we&rsqu...

Conclusions:Although clinically relevant events secondary to IVC filter migration and fracture are rare, they can be life-threatening. Care should be taken when choosing to place these devices, and alternative therapies should be considered when possible. They should be removed when no longer needed, as fracture rates are increased with longer dwell times. Up to half of complications can be avoided with retrieval within 3 months.Disclosure: Dr. Yost has nothing to disclose. Dr. Klaas has nothing to disclose.
