CONCLUSIONS: Our results demonstrate a correlation between the required dose of metformin, BMI and hyperandrogenism. The dose of metformin should be adjusted to patients' BMI in order to obtain significant results in terms of clinical, metabolic and hormonal responses. PMID: 32767342 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsAlthough the majority of survivors received appropriate surveillance for recurrence, engagement in other preventive health services varied substantially.Implications for Cancer SurvivorsEfforts are needed to address gaps in the use of recommended cancer screening and preventive health services among cancer survivors, particularly survivors with early-onset disease who may be at increased risk for additional cancers and common chronic conditions over their lifetime.

Abstract CONTEXT: Severe hypothyroidism has profound effects on lipoprotein metabolism including high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol elevations but effects on HDL function metrics are unknown. OBJECTIVE: To determine the impact of severe short-term hypothyroidism on HDL particle characteristics, HDL cholesterol efflux capacity (CEC), and HDL antioxidative capacity. DESIGN: Observational study with variables measured during severe short-term hypothyroidism (median TSH 81 mU/L) and after 20 weeks of thyroid hormone supplementation (median TSH 0.03 mU/L) (Netherlands Trial Registry ID 7228). SET...

Authors: Duran Karaduman B, Ayhan H, Kele┼× T, Bozkurt E Abstract BACKGROUND/AIM: From a pathophysiological point of view, inflammation is thought to be more dominant in bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) stenosis than tricuspid aortic valve (TAV) stenosis. Our study aimed to determine the association between monocyte-to high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) ratio (MHR), a new inflammatory marker, with the speed of progression of stenosis and pathophysiology of BAV stenosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 210 severe aortic stenosis patients (70 consecutive BAV patients, 140 matched TAV patients) were retrosp...

CONCLUSIONS: The spectrum of FH-causing mutations in the Chinese population is refined and expanded. Analyses of FH causal genes have been a great help in clinical diagnosis and have deep implications in disease treatment. These data can serve as a considerable dataset for next-generation sequencing analysis of the Chinese population with FH and contribute to the genetic diagnosis and counseling of FH patients.

Authors: Morawski K, Klonowska A, Kubicka-Trzaska A, Woron J, Romanowska-Dixon B Abstract The purpose of this study was investigate whether replacing or discontinuing drugs that are inhibitors or substrates of cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) may improve the clinical course of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). A retrospective observational study included 43 patients with active CSC. Twenty seven patients (32 eyes, group 1) were using drugs that act as substrates or inhibitors of CYP3A4. In 25 of these 27 patients, treatments including steroids, calcium channel blockers, anticoagulants, statins, beta-adrenolytics,...

Authors: El-Medany AYM, Birch L, Hunt LP, Matson RIB, Chong AHW, Beynon R, Hamilton-Shield J, Perry R Abstract Background: Using meta-regression, this article aims at establishing the minimum change in BMI-standard deviation score (SDS) needed to improve lipid profiles and blood pressure in children and adolescents with obesity, to aid future trials and guidelines. Methods: Studies with participants involved in lifestyle interventions, aged 4-19 years, with a diagnosis of obesity according to defined BMI thresholds, were considered for inclusion in a large systematic review. Interventions had to report pre- and pos...
