A hospital-based case-control study was conducted to investigate the association of prepregnancy body mass index (PPBMI) and gestational weight gain (GWG) with preeclampsia. Individuals with a high PPBMI (body mass index ≥23.0 kg/m2) and an excessive GWG had a 3.28-fold (95% confidence interval: 1.04–10.4) and 3.79-fold (95% confidence interval: 1.05–13.61) increased risk of preeclampsia, respectively, after adjustment for age, hypertension history, and GWG/PPBMI.

Authors: Sakin A, Sahin S, Sakin A, Aldemir MN, Bayram I, Kotan C Abstract INTRODUCTION: The effect of obesity on response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) remains unknown. We aimed to investigate the effect of obesity on response to NACT and survival in locally-advanced gastric cancer (GC). METHODS: From 2010 to 2019, 142 GC patients with clinical stage III disease who underwent curative surgery after NACT were enrolled. Patients were divided into 3 groups according to body mass index (BMI) as follows; BMI 30 kg/m2. The Mandard tumor regression grading system was used for tumor regression grade (TRG). RE...

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common pediatric cancer. Vincristine is a core chemotherapeutic agent for patients with ALL; unfortunately, ∼78% will develop vincristine-induced peripheral neuropathy (VIPN). VIPN can result in vincristine dose reductions that decrease therapeutic efficacy: making it important to understand which children are at highest risk for VIPN. We hypothesized that pediatric ALL patients who were obese at diagnosis would develop worse VIPN than healthy weight children with ALL within the first year. Our results confirmed that obese pediatric patients have significantly (P=0.03) wor...

The Indian Society of Gastroenterology and Association of Physicians of India have developed this evidence-based practice guideline for management of GERD in adults. A modified Delphi process was used to develop this consensus containing 43 statements, which were generated by electronic voting iteration as well as face-to-face meeting, and review of the supporti...

Authors: Pandit K, Mukhopadhyay P, Chatterjee P, Majhi B, Chowdhury S, Ghosh S Abstract Introduction: Obesity is associated with insulin resistance and measuring it in an apparently healthy population and correlating them with established risk parameters may identify predisposed individuals who may later develop diabetes or cardiovascular diseases. Material and Methods: 405 participants from a rural area were investigated for various metabolic parameters and indices of insulin resistance. Insulin resistance indices were evaluated in the 3 different groups [Obese Metabolic Syndrome (MetS), Lean MetS and those wi...
