Authors: Rahim MA, Zaman S, Amin MR, Uddin KN, Ma JC Abstract Histoplasmosis is uncommon in many parts of the world, including Bangladesh, where, in recent years, cases are increasingly reported. We sought to describe the sociodemographic characteristics, clinical presentation, investigations, treatment, and outcome of histoplasmosis in Bangladesh. We conducted a retrospective data review of published literature from 1962 to 2017, containing information on histoplasmosis in and/or from Bangladesh. Unpublished, well-documented histoplasmosis cases were also included. A total of 26 male patients aged 8-75 years, with...

Discussion, we continue to believe that this statistically significant finding has limited clinical significance, “as both groups demonstrated mean brake response times in excess of a recommended driving safety threshold of 0.700 seconds.” We are unaware of any investigation (including our own) that has measured the effect of acute blood glucose levels, hypoglycemic events, and/or specific pharmacologic age nts on brake response times, and agree that this might represent an interesting avenue for future investigations.

This study investigates the relationship between plantar tissue stiffness and selected parameters, including age, diabetes mellitus (DM) duration, body mass index (BMI), and HbA1c level. 70 diabetes patients with no foot problems were recruited. The plantar soft tissue at the 2nd sub-metatarsal head (MTH) pad was examined using the novel indentation system developed. The stiffness constant, K, was used to describe the tissue stiffness. The four factors (age, DM duration, BMI, and HbA1c level) were plotted against the plantar tissue stiffness. The scatter plots revealed that a higher plantar tissue stiffness was usually ass...

Diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) is the most common chronic complication of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), affecting almost 50% patients with T2DM [1]. It is widely considered as a major risk factor for foot ulcers and lower-extremity amputations [2]. Approximately 70% of patients with DPN die at the age of 10 years after the initial diagnosis of DPN, with 50% of these deaths being cardiovascular related [3]. The number of people with diabetes and the burden of DPN have increased with the aging of the population.

ConclusionsCompared with the general population, the prevalence of elevated CVP and OSA is significant in this cohort of patients. Age, diabetes, and right lower extremity chronic venous insufficiency symptoms seem to be predictors of elevated CVP. Larger, population-based prevalence studies are needed to confirm these findings.

ConclusionsChios mastic's beneficial properties have been demonstrated in the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders, wound healing, skin inflammations, plasma lipid and blood sugar reduction and oral care. These properties are attributed to triterpenes and volatile compounds. However, because of the resin's chemical complexity and the lack of commercial standards for its main compounds, there is a notable gap in literature concerning the biological evaluation of CMG's isolated components. Therefore, future research should focus on the development of efficient extraction, isolation and analysis techniques in order to unra...
