No impact of anti-Rank ligand and PTH analogs on cardiovascular risk in postmenopausal osteoporosis: a systematic literature review and meta-analysis

ConclusionsThe anti-Rank ligand and PTH analogs have no impact on cardiovascular risk and overall mortality in idiopathic osteoporosis. To better answer the question whether these treatments can reduce the long-term cardiovascular risk, further comparative studies with longer duration are required.

Authors: El Oussoul S, Haesebaert J, Leaune E, Haesebaert F Abstract Despite the proven effectiveness of early intervention services for first-episode psychosis (FEP), these services are poorly implemented in France. This column describes the establishment in 2018 of a community of practice dedicated to the implementation of early intervention services for FEP at the Vinatier Hospital in Lyon, France, in 2019. To evaluate the implementation process, the authors analyzed materials produced during the process of conceiving and developing the community of practice, reviewed participant observation notes, and examined ...

To determine the prevalence of repeated BWP in a national sample of French young physicians; its risk factors, and the mental health consequences of BWP. The study is a cross-sectional observational epidemiological national study addressed to young physicians. The online internet anonymous questionnaire was elaborated according to previous studies explori...

Conclusion This paper summarizes the current findings regarding the anti-colitis activity of plant-derived alkaloids and shows how these alkaloids exhibit significant and beneficial effects in alleviating colonic inflammation. These natural alkaloids are not only promising agents for IBD treatment but are also components for developing new wonder drugs. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms or toxicological evaluation of most plant-derived alkaloids still require much scientific research, and their actual efficacies for IBD patients have not been verified well in field research. Thus, further clinical trials to elu...

Conclusions: Heart remodelling related to a high cardiac output state cardiomyopathy was more pronounced in patients with homozygous β°/β° genotype. Osteoporososis was significantly more frequent in patients with homozygous β°/β° genotype, treated for more than two-thirds with DFO therapy. These data support the knowledge of different phenotypic groups in the management of NTDT patients.TableDisclosuresPepe: Chiesi Farmaceutici S.p.A., ApoPharma Inc., and Bayer: Other: No profit support.
