Exposure to urban particulate matter and its association with human health risks.

Exposure to urban particulate matter and its association with human health risks. Environ Sci Pollut Res Int. 2020 May 14;: Authors: Alemayehu YA, Asfaw SL, Terfie TA Abstract Human health and environmental risks are increasing following air pollution associated with vehicular and industrial emissions in which particulate matter is a constituent. The purpose of this review was to assess studies on the health effects and mortality induced by particles published for the last 15 years. The literature survey indicated the existence of strong positive associations between fine and ultrafine particles' exposure and cardiovascular, hypertension, obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus, cancer health risks, and mortality. Its exposure is also associated with increased odds of hypertensive and diabetes disorders of pregnancy and premature deaths. The ever increasing hospital admission and mortality due to heart failure, diabetes, hypertension, and cancer could be due to long-term exposure to particles in different countries. Therefore, its effect should be communicated for legal and scientific actions to minimize emissions mainly from traffic sources. PMID: 32410189 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report a 30-year-old female patient with diabetes who has acromegaloid features, prominent umbilicus, prominent muscles, prominent subcutaneous veins, and gross hepatomegaly. Near-total loss of subcutaneous fat was confirmed by whole-body magnetic resonance imaging and laboratory data revealed significant hypertriglyceridemia, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, and heavy proteinuria with stage IIIa chronic kidney disease. Her blood film revealed thrombocytosis that on further evaluation by bone marrow biopsy was confirmed to be a myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN); essential thrombocytosis (ET). She also had skin lesions th...

We report a case of TBIRS in an Arab patient with mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD). Investigations revealed a clinical condition marked by positive anti-insulin receptor and ribonucleoprotein antibodies. The patient presented with severe hyperglycemia, weight loss, arthralgia, and acanthosis nigricans. He was managed successfully with an intensive pulsed combination regimen of cyclophosphamide and plasmapheresis augmented with high doses of prednisolone, which normalized his blood sugar levels without insulin therapy. MCTD was controlled by hydroxychloroquine. During the course of his treatment, the patient developed...

é R, Jakab A Abstract Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecological malignancy with a relatively good overall prognosis. It traditionally has two subtypes: type 1 (endometrioid carcinoma) and type 2 (non-endometrioid carcinoma). The prognosis is excellent for stage I endometrioid cancer, with a 5-year survival rate of 96%. However, the prognosis is much worse for women with high-risk endometrial cancer. Effective preoperative staging is important in order to tailor treatment and achieve optimal long-term survival. The majority of asymptomatic polyps detected by ultrasound are treated surgically. Conve...

This study demonstrated that the incidence of ischemic heart disease and death were three times higher among men with low birth weight compared to men with high birth weight (5). Epidemiological investigations of adults born at the time of the Dutch famine between 1944 and 1945 revealed an association between maternal starvation and a low infant birth weight with a high incidence of hypertension and coronary heart disease in these adults (23). Furthermore, Painter et al. reported the incidence of early onset coronary heart disease among persons conceived during the Dutch famine (24). In that regard, Barker's findin...
