CONCLUSIONS: Findings suggest that loss of control is more clinically relevant in terms of associations with eating disorder and depressive symptoms in middle-aged women.LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level V based on descriptive studies.PMID:34558018 | DOI:10.1007/s40519-021-01305-2
AbstractTropical theileriosis is one of the major causes of newborn calves mortality. Observation of clinical manifestations is important while making the presumptive/tentative diagnosis of tropical theileriosis in newborn calves. The phenotypic and haemato-biochemical appraisals of tropical theileriosis could be of great help to make a holistic therapeutic plan for diseased newborn calves. Therefore, the present study aimed to evaluate the haemato-biochemical and phenotypic diagnostic markers of tropical theileriosis in newborn calves. A total of 43 newborn calves naturally infected withTheileria annulata and 16 age-match...
We present the main results of the different studies separately and then comment on some similarities and differences in the findings. We find that the results of these studies are complementary on certain aspects of functioning found in anorexia nervosa as compared with other categories of eating disorders. Both sets of studies underline the self-centeredness of anorexic patients with their difficulty in communicating their feelings and thoughts. In both types of study, treatment is understood as relying on an integrative and multidisciplinary model that seeks to modify the eating behaviors and to improve ego functions in...
CONCLUSION: Results from the milestones suggest self-reported cognitive-behavioral flexibility is not a strong determinant of everyday function. Results from the subjective WSAS function measure and the more objective functional milestones were not consistent. To obtain a more balanced assessment of everyday functioning in AN, both subjective and objective measures should be considered.LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level III Case-control analytic study.PMID:34550546 | PMC:PMC8456687 | DOI:10.1007/s40519-021-01300-7
ConclusionSOX100 combined with trastuzumab was effective with a favorable safety profile in patients with HER2-positive AGC.
DiscussionOur data suggest that interval treatment for AN is effective and may even be superior to conventional single inpatient treatment. Given the observational nature of this study, however, controlled studies are necessary to corroborate these findings.

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: Recent research has suggested that a type of atypical eye movement, called square wave jerks, together with anxiety, may distinguish individuals with anorexia nervosa from those without anorexia nervosa and may represent a biomarker and endophenotype for the illness. The aim of this study was to identify the presence of this proposed marker in individuals currently with anorexia nervosa relative to healthy controls, and to identify the state independence and heritability of this putative marker by exp...
A 72-year-old woman presented with a 6-month history of anorexia, weight loss (-14kg) and myalgia in upper limbs. Clinical examination showed moderate proximal muscle weakness in upper limbs and crepitation at lung auscultation, but no skin rash nor joint involvement. Biological assessment disclosed increased C-reactive protein (68 µM) and creatine-kinase (3800 U/l) serum levels and anti-nuclear and -PL7 autoantibodies at immunological screening. Thoracic CT-scan showed abnormalities consistent with interstitial pneumonia.
