A case of diffuse idiopathic pulmonary neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia (DIPNECH) syndrome.

CONCLUSION: It is necessary to consider the possibility of this rare disease in order to avoid inappropriate treatments and in the hope that future therapeutic advances (somatostatin analogs, mTOR inhibitors) improve patients' experience and the progression of respiratory function.

Conclusions: Negative ICS beliefs are associated with higher number of oral steroid courses. The association between CAM endorsement and asthma control is varied, but mostly in favor of improved control. Financial difficulties may make CAM use more likely.

Authors: Krell-Roesch J, Syrjanen JA, Vassilaki M, Lowe VJ, Vemuri P, Mielke MM, Machulda MM, Stokin GB, Christianson TJ, Kremers WK, Jack CR, Knopman DS, Petersen RC, Geda YE Abstract OBJECTIVE: The authors conducted a prospective cohort study to examine the risk of incident mild cognitive impairment (MCI) as predicted by baseline neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPS) and brain regional glucose metabolic dysfunction. METHODS: About 1,363 cognitively unimpaired individuals (52.8% males) aged ≥50 years were followed for a median of 4.8 years to the outcome of incident MCI. NPS were assessed using Beck Depression an...

SPATIALLY INFORMED CNN FOR AUTOMATED CONE DETECTION IN ADAPTIVE OPTICS RETINAL IMAGES. Proc IEEE Int Symp Biomed Imaging. 2020 Apr;2020:1383-1386 Authors: Jin H, Morgan JIW, Gee JC, Chen M Abstract Adaptive optics (AO) scanning laser ophthalmoscopy offers cellular level in-vivo imaging of the human cone mosaic. Existing analysis of cone photoreceptor density in AO images require accurate identification of cone cells, which is a time and labor-intensive task. Recently, several methods have been introduced for automated cone detection in AO retinal images using convolutional neural networks (CNN). Howeve...

Conclusions: The main reason for excellent scavenging activity of the formulations can be attributed to the presence of monomeric, dimeric, oligomeric procyanidins and the phenolic group. The present work denotes that GSE constitutes a good source of PC's and will be useful in the prevention and treatment of free radical related diseases. HighlightsGrape seed extract and soluplus nanodispersion was prepared by freeze drying methodThe particle size of GSE-SOLU dispersion was 69.9 nm with zeta potential of -82.1mVThe formulation FIII showed highest radical scavenging activity of 96.7%ABTS, FRAP, linoleic model exhibit...

CONCLUSIONS: A reduction in ERCP referrals raises concern that a cohort of patients with significant biliary disease remain undetected. Whether this results in later, and more severe, presentation remains to be seen but a potential surge in such cases could significantly burden all future endoscopy planning services.

AbstractIdiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is a peripheral subpleural interstitial lung disorder limited to the lung not involving the airways. It has a poor prognosis (survival less than 5  years) and commonly an interstitial pneumonia radiological pattern. Patients complain of a chronic dry cough in 80% of cases. A cough is often the first symptom of this rare disease, preceding dyspnea by years, and is associated with a poor prognosis, high dyspnea scores and low FVC percentages. T he pathogenetic mechanisms leading to coughing in IPF are unclear. This review focuses on recent evidence of cough pathophysiology in this d...
