Effect of Regular Aerobic Training on Serum C-Reactive Protein and IL-6 Levels in Obese Women
CONCLUSION: Although no significant changes were observed in CRP or IL-6 concentrations, it is important to note that in response to aerobic training, the IL-6 levels of most of the participants fell to what is generally considered acceptable.PMID:34543566 (Source: Puerto Rico Health Sciences Journal)

Neurosurgery Technical Procedure: Surgeon's Position during Microscopic Transsphenoidal Surgery
P R Health Sci J. 2021 Jun;40(2):87-89.ABSTRACTThe surgeon's position in relation to the patient has been modified throughout the years for transsphenoidal surgery (TSS). Nowadays, if a microscopic approach is used, most centers place the surgeon at the side of the patient's head with the patient facing him. In this paper, we propose a more ergonomic and time-proven setup for this type of surgery. Since the early 1980s, our neurosurgical section has been using an approach where the surgeon stands behind the patient's head with the microscope tower on the surgeon's back. This position is rarely mentioned in the literature. ...

Failure of Biologic Therapy in Psoriasis
CONCLUSION: The most common reason for discontinuing biologic therapy was that said therapy was not effective, though for ETA and UST, the fact that biologic therapies are not universally covered by insurance company was found to be associated with their discontinuation, as well. There were no statistically significant associations found between biologic therapy discontinuation and age, gender, or comorbidities, which last included obesity, class I.
