Exclusive: NHS launching large trial of approach that could boost number of transplants and their success rateThousands of lives could be saved globally by giving patients a 10p statin before transplants, doctors have said, as the NHS launches the world ’s largest clinical trial in organ donors.The medical breakthrough is predicted to dramatically increase the supply of organs for transplant. Currently, demand for organs vastly exceeds the number available. Every year thousands of people die waiting for a transplant, including hundreds in Britain.Continue reading...

Acute respiratory distress syndrome is a heterogenous syndrome with many etiologies for which there are no definitive pharmacologic treatments, despite decades of research. We explore some adjunctive pharmacologic therapies, including neuromuscular blockade, corticosteroids, and inhaled pulmonary vasodilators. Additionally, we explore some investigative therapies, including Vitamin C, beta-agonists, statins, mesenchymal stromal cells, and granulocyte –macrophage colony stimulating factor. We do discuss the potential role of steroids in acute respiratory distress syndrome with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronav...

Clinical studies suggest that NASH is an independent risk factor for chronic kidney disease (CKD), but models and mechanisms linking these two diseases are lacking. Here, we have characterized the renal function, histological features, and transcriptomic profile in a well-validated murin...

Our objective is to describe two genetically confirmed Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy (OPMD) patients with HMGCoARdase-antibody positive autoimmune necrotic myopathy (AINM) responsive to immunosuppressive treatment. Although clinicians have suspected muscular dystrophy patients are at increased risk of statin side-effects, to date no patients with genetically confirmed muscular dystrophy have been reported with HMGCoRdase-antibody positive AINM. Here we describe the clinical presentation, serology, muscle pathology and response to treatment in two patients with genetically confirmed OPMD who developed statin-associated AINM.
