Authors: Watahiki T, Okada K, Warabi E, Nagaoka T, Suzuki H, Ishige K, Yanagawa T, Takahashi S, Mizokami Y, Tokushige K, Ariizumi SI, Yamamoto M, Shoda J Abstract Gender and menopause influence the severity and development manner of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Male p62/Sqstm1 and nuclear factor E2-related factor-2 (p62 and Nrf2) double-knockout (DKO) mice exhibit severe steatohepatitis caused by hyperphagia-induced obesity, overload of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) into the liver, and potentiation of the inflammatory response in Kupffer cells. However, the pathogenetic phenotype of steatohepatitis in female DKO...
CONCLUSIONS: Testosterone deficiency in male individuals after TBI can be present after TBI or can develop during aging. Age-related decreases in testosterone production after TBI may act to amplify endocrine dysfunction after TBI. Ongoing clinical surveillance for testosterone deficiency associated with both TBI and aging may be reasonable. PMID: 32497444 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: The prevalence of self-reported hypertension increased significantly in the study period. Considering this disease ’ s impact on society, knowing its current prevalence and identifying its main associated factors, the need to intensify the efforts to prevent it disease is evident in order to mitigate damage to individuals and impact on public expenditure.
Conclusion: Worst indicators among women receiving BF reflect social inequalities inherent in this most vulnerable group. The study also shows that BF is being targeted at the most vulnerabl e women.
CONCLUSION: The matrix effect caused by exogenous and endogenous interferences in the blood could be a hidden factor increasing the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency by causing falsely low 25OHD3 values. Suspicious results should be remeasured by a dilution study. PMID: 32496995 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Class III obesity, comorbidities, and older age are associated with a longer diagnosis-to-surgery time. As the prevalence of obesity and endometrial cancer rise, processes are needed to promote equitable, timely access to care. PMID: 32487508 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: The contribution of UPF was expressive in the feeding of the students and it was positively associated with the excess of wei ght and with the habit of eating while watching television.
