UPDATE OF LIVER TRANSPLANTATION - NEWER ASPECTS. Turk J Med Sci. 2020 Mar 28;: Authors: Metin RO, Şimşek C, Gürakar AÖ Abstract Liver transplantation (LT) remainsas the only therapeutic option offering gold standard treatment for end-stage liver disease (ESLD) and acute liver failure (ALF), as well as for certain early-stage liver tumors. Currently, the greatest challenge facing LT is the simple fact that there are not adequate livers for all the potential patients that could benefit from LT. Despite efforts to expandthe donor pool to include the living and deceased donors, organ shortage i...

by Arthur Caplan, Ph.D. Rationing  has always been present in the American health care system.  Some poor individuals have not had access to certain treatments due to a lack of health insurance or hospitals not willing to accept them if they cannot pay.  And those in the transplant field have had to contend for decades with a shortage of organs forcing organized rationing in which many more die than benefit from access to a life-saving liver, heart or lung.  Emergency medicine personnel in big hospitals drill frequently on how to triage after a terrorist attack, a huge chemical plant explosion, an earth...

ConclusionSurvival in patients with ATTR-PN is highly variable and affected by non-cardiac baseline characteristics, such as autonomic dysfunction, large fiber involvement, late-onset disease, and non-Val30Met mutation. Careful interpretation of these findings is warranted given that this synthesis did not control for differences between studies. Survival in patients with ATTR-PN remains poor among those who are untreated or with delayed diagnosis.

Contributor : Naishitha AnaparthySeries Type : Other ; Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusWe first validated the robustness and high throughput capability of the GTO protocol in multiple cell lines. The key step to success of GTO is determining the optimum number of cycles for first amplification of cDNA. This step needs to be result in a balance between cDNA and gDNA reads so that the gene expression profiles generated are good while not comprimising on the CNA profile quality. This validation was done in SKBR3, A375 and BT549 cell lines. They were then compared to 315A control diploi...
