This study was designed to investigate changes in blood subfatin and spexin levels during gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and childbirth, and define the mechanisms of these hormones in the physiopathology of GDM. A total of 60 pregnant women, comprising 30 diagnosed with GDM and 30 with normal gestation, were included in the study. The diagnosis of GDM was made through a 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) administered between 24 and 28 weeks of pregnancy. The amounts of subfatin, spexin, and insulin were measured in blood samples by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays; lipid profiles, glucose, and other biochemical...

Authors: Akkemik O, Kazaz H, Tamsel S, Dündar N, Sahinalp S, Ellidokuz H Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of digital panoramic radiograph (DPR) for detection of carotid artery calcification (CAC) confirmed by Doppler Ultrasonography (DUSG) and to clarify the relationship between between CAC identified by DPR and cardiovascular events through a 5 year follow-up period. METHODS: Of 3600 consecutive patients examined, 158 patients presented with CAC as detected by DPR. The final study group was composed of 96 patients who had CAC confirmed by DUSG or CT angiogram. The control gro...

Authors: Bilgic A, Kodjikian L, Chhablani J, Sudhalkar A, Trivedi M, Vasavada V, Vasavada V, Vasavada S, Srivastava S, Bhojwani D, Sudhalkar A Abstract Purpose: To determine the risk factors associated with sustained intraocular pressure (IOP) rise in patients enrolled in the treat and extend (T&E) protocol receiving aflibercept/ranibizumab therapy for 3 years. Design: Retrospective, observational chart review. Setting. Multicentric. Patients. 789 patients (1021 eyes; 602 males) enrolled in T&E using aflibercept/ranibizumab for diabetic macular edema (DME), wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD), or macular...

Conclusions: A unique pattern of prescription was observed amongst Japanese patients with T2DM, and DPP4i, rather than metformin, was predominantly used as the first-line treatment. SGLT2i was infrequently prescribed. Metformin was prescribed at a daily dose of ≤500 mg in many patients. Greater efforts are needed to assess the comparative effectiveness of these treatment strategies. PMID: 32050809 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Ebo DG, Bridts CH, Rihs HP Abstract INTRODUCTION: IgE-mediated Hevea latex allergy and associated food-allergies constitute a significant health issue with serious consequences of diagnostic error. Hence, there is need for more reliable confirmatory diagnostics.Areas covered: Here, we summarize the major limitations of conventional tests using native extracts and describe how piecing together the IgE reactivity profile can benefit correct diagnosis in difficult cases in whom conventional tests yield equivocal or negative results. A diagnostic algorithm integrating traditional sIgE and component resolved di...

Authors: Campbell MR Abstract Introduction: Monogenic diabetes is a subset of diabetes characterized by the presence of single-gene mutations and includes neonatal diabetes mellitus and maturity-onset diabetes of the young. Due to the genetic etiology of monogenic diabetes, molecular genetic testing can be used for the diagnosis and classification.Areas Covered: In addition to first-generation molecular analyses, many large clinical laboratories are transitioning to multiplexed next-generation sequencing panels to simultaneously assess patients for several of the most common genetic mutations seen in monogenic diab...

Discussion MDSCs violently emerge in pathological conditions in an attempt to limit potentially harmful immune and inflammatory responses. Mechanisms supporting their expansion and survival are deeply investigated in cancer, in the perspective to reactivate specific antitumor responses and prevent their contribution to disease evolution. These findings will likely contribute to improve the targeting of MDSCs in anticancer immunotherapies, either alone or in combination with immune checkpoint inhibitors. New evidence indicates that the expansion of myeloid cell differentiation in pathology is subject to fine-tuning, as its...

A while ago, I wrote to you about thyroid function and the role it plays in managing your metabolism. This is so important that I wanted to mention it again. If you are taking the proper steps, and have removed all of the toxic grains from your diet, but still aren’t losing the weight you desire, maybe you should consider having your thyroid checked.   Is your little thyroid sensitive? The thyroid gland sits on the front of your throat like a miniature bow-tie. Of all endocrine glands, the thyroid gland is the most susceptible to autoimmune damage. When the immune system is unable to distinguish proteins i...
