Why Miss the Chance? Incidental Findings while Telescreening for Diabetic Retinopathy
CONCLUSION: All these results indicate that SQC is an effective preventive and protective drug on skeletal muscle of diabetic macrovasculopathy, and could alleviate skeletal muscle tissue damage through affecting biological functions related to cell death and cell adhesion.

In conclusion, chronic supplementation with 1% glycine did not have any significant detrimental side effects in our model. However, more studies are still necessary to evaluate the effect of 1% glycine supplementation in humans. PMID: 32091321 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Albumin values were not associated with wound complications or need for reoperation in patients undergoing body contouring. Further research is warranted. PMID: 32097112 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Okay, I'm not an epidemiologist or a virologist. But I do know something about those subjects, I'm a public health professor, and I am an expert in clinical communication and risk communication. So I'm going to offer some observations that I hope will help people keep this public health scare in proper perspective and maybe be of practical use.There are two important parameters we need to understand the risk caused by any communicable disease. I'm going to broadly say transmissibility, and the probability that exposure will lead to serious disease.We often see transmissibility represented as a single number, called R0 or &...

Abstract The sum of squared score (SSU) and sequence kernel association test (SKAT) are the two good alternative tests for genetic association studies in case-control data. Both SSU and SKAT are derived through assuming a dose-response model between the risk of disease and genotypes. However, in practice, the real genetic mode of inheritance is impossible to know. Thus, these two tests might losepower substantially as shown in simulation results when the genetic model is misspecified. Here, to make both the tests suitable in broad situations, we propose two-phase SSU (tpSSU) and two-phase SKAT (tpSKAT), where the ...
CONCLUSIONS: The mechanism underlying this phenomenon relates to a decrease in the inflammatory reaction and oxidative stress, as well as a decrease in leaky gut. Such reactions increase insulin sensitivity and reduce autoimmune responses. PMID: 32096204 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of AF in CS should be studied more precisely, both in a scientific way and at the individual patient's level. PMID: 32096188 [PubMed - in process]
