Lung cancer surgery for patients on hemodialysis: A decade of experience at multicenter institutions

ConclusionsLung cancer surgery for HD patients provides favorable long-term outcomes despite higher postoperative mortality and morbidity rates. As an extended operation is significantly associated with postoperative complications, thoracic surgeons should carefully select the type of resection based on a balance between the therapeutic benefit and invasiveness in these patients.

Publication date: Available online 18 February 2020Source: Food HydrocolloidsAuthor(s): Xiaqing Wu, Guowen Zhang, Mingming Hu, Junhui Pan, Ang Li, Ying ZhangAbstractAs one of the most reactive dicarbonyl compounds, methylglyoxal (MGO) can react with protein to form advanced glycation end products (AGEs), then promoting the development of diabetic complications. Hence, it is significant for preventing protein glycation mediated by MGO. Here, the anti-glycation potential and mechanism of gallocatechin gallate (GCG) as an active ingredient of green tea were investigated. It was found that GCG exhibit good scavenging activitie...

We reported two cases with community-acquired pneumonia caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) who returned from Wuhan, China in January, 2020. The reported cases highlight non-specific clinical presentations of 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) as well as the importance of rapid laboratory-based diagnosis.

Authors: Warmbrunn MV, Herrema H, Aron-Wisnewsky J, Soeters MR, Van Raalte DH, Nieuwdorp M Abstract Introduction: Cardiometabolic diseases (CMD) are a group of interrelated disorders such as metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular diseases (CVD). As the prevalence of these diseases increases globally, efficient new strategies are necessary to target CMD and modifiable risk factors. In the past decade, evidence has accumulated regarding the influence of gut microbiota (GM) on CMD, providing new targets for therapeutic interventions.Areas covered: This narrative review discusses the pathophysi...

Abstract PM2.5-bound toxic metals (TMs) are derived from various sources, and they can cause many adverse health effects on the human body. To effectively reduce the disease burden of TMs by controlling the relative sources, an integrated approach of quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) and source-apportionment (positive matrix factorization, PMF) was proposed and applied to some typical diseases induced by TMs in 2017 in Beijing. The estimation included two parts; first, the number of potentially affected people was calculated based on the source mass contribution from PMF and the inhalation unit risk of TMs; seco...

Conclusion: Genetic associations of diseases considerably vary across populations which necessitates health-related genotyping efforts especially for so far understudied populations. SOM portrayal represents novel promising methods in population genetic research with special strength in visualization-based comparison of SNP data. Introduction Non-communicable polygenic diseases such as cancers, neurodegeneration, cardiovascular, and metabolic disorders have become the most prevalent type worldwide and account for the majority of death events in developed and transition economy countries (Habib and Saha, 2010; Benzi...

This study aimed to determine the frequency and risk factors for statin-induced interstitial pneumonia (IP).MethodWe conducted a retrospective cohort study using a large Japanese health insurance claims database. We determined the statin-induced IP incidence in patients treated with statins for hyperlipidemia (n = 194,814) with 12-month screening and 3-month observation periods. Statin-induced IP was defined as: (1) diagnosis with IP (ICD-10 codes: J70.2-J70.4, J84.1, and J84.9) within 3 months after starting statins; (2) steroid administration starts after starting statins; (3) undergoing laboratory tests for sialylat...

Authors: Liu SF, Kuo HC, Lin MC, Ho SC, Tu ML, Chen YM, Chen YC, Fang WF, Wang CC, Liu GH Abstract Whether the use of inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) protects patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) from lung cancer remains undetermined. In this retrospective nationwide population-based cohort study, we extracted data of 13,686 female COPD patients (ICS users, n = 1,290, ICS non-users, n = 12,396) diagnosed between 1997 and 2009 from the Taiwan's National Health Insurance database. These patients were followed-up until 2011, and lung cancer incidence was determined. Cox regression analysis was used...

Conclusions: Evidence is mounting that relates early-life iAs exposure and cancer development later in life. Future research should include animal studies that address mechanistic hypotheses and studies of human populations that integrate early-life exposure, molecular alterations, and latent disease outcomes.

Conclusions The preoperative haemoglobin levels and the need for transfusion are strongly associated with the occurrence of complications. Complications occurred in 75% of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, albeit these complications were not life-threatening. Diabetes mellitus is associated with critical complications. Prolonged hospitalization was observed primarily for persistent air leak, atelectasis, fever, and particularly after a right-sided procedure.
