Renal disorders in rheumatologic diseases: the spectrum is changing (part 2. Arthridides).
Renal disorders in rheumatologic diseases: the spectrum is changing (part 2. Arthridides). J Nephrol. 2020 Jun 16;: Authors: Ponticelli C, Doria A, Moroni G Abstract This review is devoted to rheumatologic diseases mainly characterized by different types of arthritis. They may involve also different organs, including the kidney, but renal disease is more frequently caused by the nephrotoxicity of drugs to relieve pain or to interfere with the pathophysiology of the underlying disease. Rheumatoid arthritis is the prototype of arthropathies. This autoimmune disease mainly attacks joints, tendons and ligaments but can also involve internal organs including the kidney. Psoriatic arthritis is a complex disease in which psoriasis, a chronic inflammatory disease, is associated with the development of peripheral arthritis or spondylitis. The disease or its treatment may lead to kidney complications. Gout is a form of inflammatory arthritis which is characterized by an increase in the serum uric acid deposits in and around the joints of the extremities, the so called tophi. The disease is often associated with a metabolic syndrome with diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease. Kidney injury is frequent. It may be caused by kidney stones, urinary tract obstruction, tubulointerstitial and vascular lesions leading to CKD and renal failure. PMID: 32548773 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: The proposed model is shown to adequately describe the meal-induced glucose fluctuations in simulated CGM data while validations on clinical CGM data show promising results as well. Significance: The proposed model may lay the grounds for new ways of utilizing available CGM data, including CGM-based parameter estimation and stochastic optimal control.
Conclusion: The differential characteristics of EDA contributed highly to the accuracy of pain stimulation level detection of the classifiers. The external validity dataset was not considered in the study. Significance: Our approach has the potential for accurate pain quantification using EDA.
AbstractCoronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) accounts for over 180,000 deaths in the USA. Although COVID-19 affects all racial ethnicities, non-Hispanic Blacks have the highest mortality rates. Evidence continues to emerge, linking the disproportion of contagion and mortality from severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2), a result of adverse social determinants of health. Yet, genetic predisposition may also play a credible role in disease transmission. SARS-CoV-2 enters cells by interaction between SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and the receptor molecule angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) expressed on the...
