Hospital incidence, management and direct cost of osteogenesis imperfecta in Spain: a retrospective database analysis.

The objective of this study was to analyse hospital incidence of osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) in Spanish hospitals and the associated medical costs from a healthcare system perspective.Methods: To this aim, a retrospective multicentre study was designed analysing admission records from patients admitted with OI in specialised care settings in Spain between 2000 and 2017. Direct medical costs were calculated based on the diagnosis-related group-based hospital payment systems, determined by the Spanish Ministry of Health.Results: Overall, 3,747 admissions were reviewed, corresponding to 998 patients, 48.20% of which were males and 51.80% females. Hospital incidence was 5.64 per 100,000 patients (95% CI, 4.80 to 6.60) over the study period, whereas incidence at birth was 10.14 per 100,000 (95% CI, 8.16 to 12.05). In-hospital mortality appeared primarily associated to neonatal conditions and acute respiratory failure. Mean length of hospital stay was 2.83 days, decreasing significantly during the study period (p

In this study, in vitro antiosteoporosis activity and hepatotoxicity of P. jamasakura bark extracts were evaluated. Methods. Mouse bone marrow macrophage (BMM) cells were incubated with tartrate-resistant acid phosphate (TRAP) buffers and p-nitrophenyl phosphate and cultured with different P. jamasakura bark extracts at concentrations of 0, 6.25, 12.5, 25, and 50 μg/ml in the presence of the receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-Β ligand (RANKL) for 6 days. The osteoclast TRAP activity and cell viability were measured. Nitric oxide (NO) assay was conducted using murine macrophage-like RAW 264.7 cells tr...

Authors: Liu X, Zheng J, Li F, Yi R, Mu J, Tan F, Zhao X Abstract A rat model of secondary osteoporosis was constructed using retinoic acid as an inducer, and the genes, proteins, and bone mass of the rats were analyzed. qPCR detection of the Wnt/β-catenin and OPG/RANK/RANKL signaling pathway-related gene expression levels showed that Lactobacillus plantarum HFY15 played a positive role in regulating both pathways. HFY15 significantly increased β-catenin, Lrp5, Lrp6, Wnt10b, OPG, RANKL, and Runx2 expression and downregulated DKK1, RANK, CTSK, TRACP, and ALP expression. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays f...

In this study, we aimed to describe sexual function in Puerto Rican women with IBD. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study of women with IBD at the University of Puerto Rico Center for IBD. Patients were invited to anonymously complete the validated Spanish version of the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) questionnaire. On this 36-point scale, a score of 26.55 or less is defined as sexual dysfunction. Data were analyzed by diagnosis, presence of an ostomy, and age, using descriptive statistics, ANOVA, Student's t test, and logistic regression. RESULTS: One hundred women completed the FSFI questionnaire, wi...
