IJERPH, Vol. 17, Pages 2164: Cohort Profile: Effectiveness of a 12-Month Patient-Centred Medical Home Model Versus Standard Care for Chronic Disease Management among Primary Care Patients in Sydney, Australia International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health doi: 10.3390/ijerph17062164 Authors: James Rufus John Amanda Jones A. Munro Neville Shima Ghassempour Federico Girosi W. Kathy Tannous Evidence suggests that patient-centred medical home (PCMH) is more effective than standard general practitioner care in improving patient outcomes in primary care. This paper reports on the design, early implementation experiences, and early findings of the 12-month PCMH model called ‘WellNet’ delivered across six primary care practices in Sydney, Australia. The WellNet study sample comprises 589 consented participants in the intervention group receiving enhanced primary care in the form of patient-tailored chronic disease management plan, improved self-management support, and regular monitoring by general practitioners (GPs) and trained clinical coordinators. The comparison group consisted of 7750 patients who were matched based on age, gender, type and number of chronic diseases who received standard GP care. Data collected include sociodemographic characteristics, clinical measures, and self-reported health assessments at baseline and 12 months. Early study findings show the mean age of the study participants was 70 years with nearly...

We describe a unique, complex case of a man resulted affected by both APS-2 and MEN-2a. The patient developed Hashimoto's thyroiditis, diabetes mellitus type 1 and AAD, despite testing negative for adrenal cortex autoantibodies (ACA) and steroid 21-hydroxylase autoantibodies (21-OHAb). Moreover, he had also a family history for MEN-2a and he first developed medullay thyroid cancer, then bilateral pheochromocytoma on the adrenal substrate of an AAD. On adrenal histology we found complete bilateral cortical atrophy in the presence of a lymphocytic infiltration and fibrosis, confirming an ACA and 21-OHAb-negative AAD. This da...

AbstractCeritinib is a second-generation anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) inhibitor with clinical activity in crizotinib-resistant ALK-positive non-small cell lung cancer and in treatment-na ïve ALK-positive disease. Hyperglycemia is a known adverse event, but the mechanism by which ceritinib causes hyperglycemia is unknown, and whether ceritinib causes hyperglycemic emergencies is unclear. Here, we report the case of a patient with a hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state (HHS) recurrence a fter the re-administration of dose-reduced ceritinib. A 78-year-old man with type 2 diabetes diagnosed as having advanced lung adenoca...

Heart disease and cancer are the leading causes of death in the U.S. In women the clinical appearance of both entities — coronary heart disease and cancer (breast, endometrium and ovary) escalate during the decades of the midlife transition encompassing the menopause. In addition to the impact of aging, during the interval between age 40 and 65 years the pathophysiologic components of the Metabolic Syndrome also e merge and accelerate. These include visceral adiposity (measured as waist circumference), hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia.

Osborne H Abstract The calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) is a class C G protein-coupled receptor that responds to multiple endogenous agonists and allosteric modulators, including divalent and trivalent cations, L-amino acids, γ-glutamyl peptides, polyamines, polycationic peptides, and protons. The CaSR plays a critical role in extracellular calcium (Ca2+ o) homeostasis, as demonstrated by the many naturally occurring mutations in the CaSR or its signaling partners that cause Ca2+ o homeostasis disorders. However, CaSR tissue expression in mammals is broad and includes tissues unrelated to Ca2+ o homeostasis, ...
