https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9890692
BMC Pulmonary Medicine; Negash BM, Abaya SW et. al.

Feb 3rd, 2023 - Workers in pulp and paper factories are continuously exposed to paper dust. Excessive exposure to paper dust can cause respiratory disease. Information about the prevalence of chronic respiratory symptoms and dust exposure levels among workers in pulp and paper factories is not available in Ethiopia. The aim of this study was, therefore, to assess personal total dust exposure levels, the preval...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9887800
Journal of Translational Medicine; Albrecht M, Hummitzsch L et. al.

Feb 1st, 2023 - Large extracellular vesicles (L-EV) with a diameter between 1 and 10 µm are released by various cell types. L-EV contain and transport active molecules which are crucially involved in cell to cell communication. We have shown that secretory products of human regulatory macrophages (Mreg) bear pro-angiogenic potential in-vitro and our recent findings show that Mreg cultures also contain numerous...

Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology : ... Galindo RJ, de Boer IH et. al.

Feb 1st, 2023 - Treatment of patients with diabetes and CKD includes optimizing glycemic control using lifestyle modifications and drugs that safely control glycemia and improve clinical kidney and cardiovascular disease outcomes. However, patients with advanced CKD, defined as eGFR <30 ml/min per 1.73 m2 or kidney disease treated with dialysis, have limitations to the use of some preferred glucose-lowering me...

PloS One; Asmar J, Chelala D et. al.

Feb 1st, 2023 - Many studies have assessed the association between anemia and mortality in hemodialysis but few compared patients with and without diabetes. Our study aims to investigate the impact of hemoglobin and iron parameters on mortality in hemodialysis patients with or without diabetes. This is a two-center retrospective study that included all adult patients who started hemodialysis between February 2...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9885661
Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance : Official J... Fukase T, Dohi T et. al.

Jan 31st, 2023 - This study aimed to compare the coronary plaque characterization by cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) and near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS)-intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) (NIRS-IVUS), and to determine whether pre-percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) evaluation using CMR identifies high-intensity plaques (HIPs) at risk of peri-procedural myocardial infarction (pMI). Although there is ...

Evaluation of Chitosan-Oleuropein Nanoparticles on the Durability of Dentin Bonding.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9879028
Drug Design, Development and Therapy; Zhao S, Zhang Y et. al.

Jan 31st, 2023 - To evaluate the effects of dentin pretreatment with chitosan-loaded oleuropein nanoparticles (CONPs) on the durability of resin-dentin bonding interfaces. Eighty freshly extracted non-carious human third molars were randomly divided into four groups (n = 20 each): a de-ionized water (DW) group, a chitosan (CS) group, a chlorhexidine (CHX) group and a CONP group. The dentin in the DW, CS, CHX, a...

Lipid biomarkers that reflect postoperative recurrence risk in lung cancer patients who...
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9883920
Lipids in Health and Disease; Takanashi Y, Kahyo T et. al.

Jan 29th, 2023 - The risk of postoperative recurrence is higher in lung cancer patients who smoke than non-smokers. However, objective evaluation of the postoperative recurrence risk is difficult using conventional pathological prognostic factors because of their lack of reproducibility. Consequently, novel objective biomarkers that reflect postoperative risk in lung cancer patients who smoke must be identified...

Clear cell stromal tumor of the lung with multinucleated giant cells: a report of a cas...
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9881279
Diagnostic Pathology; Jakša R, Stružinská I et. al.

Jan 29th, 2023 - Clear cell (hemangioblastoma-like) stromal tumor of the lung (CCSTL) is a rare pulmonary neoplasm. Recently, 9 cases of CCSTL harboring the YAP1-TFE3 gene fusion have been described, and it has been suggested that this aberration could be a characteristic feature of this tumor. We here report another case of CCSTL in a 57-year-old male, which presented as a solitary lung nodule 45 mm in the gre...

Surgical Infections; Wang R, Shi G et. al.

Jan 28th, 2023 - Background: Peri-prosthetic joint infection (PJI) is the most serious complication after prosthetic joint replacement. However, the diagnosis of PJI remains challenging for clinicians because of the lack of a gold standard. The purpose of this study was to investigate the diagnostic significance of serum globulin, albumin/globulin, and other biomarkers in acute and chronic periprosthetic infect...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9883484
Nature Communications; Qiao Z, Sidorenko J et. al.

Jan 28th, 2023 - The genetic regulation of post-prandial glucose levels is poorly understood. Here, we characterise the genetic architecture of blood glucose variably measured within 0 and 24 h of fasting in 368,000 European ancestry participants of the UK Biobank. We found a near-linear increase in the heritability of non-fasting glucose levels over time, which plateaus to its fasting state value after 5 h pos...

https://doi.org/10.12659/AJCR.938675
The American Journal of Case Reports; Kauppila GR, Eagen KV

Jan 27th, 2023 - BACKGROUND Unwashed or unprocessed poppy seeds may be an underrecognized substance that can lead to dependence, abuse, and an opioid use disorder. Poppy seeds can be purchased in an unwashed or unprocessed form, and these seeds can be contaminated with the opium alkaloids morphine, codeine, and thebaine on their surfaces. Poppy seeds that are commercially available, such as those used for bakin...

The British Journal of General Practice : the Journal of ... Gil N, Su H et. al.

Jan 27th, 2023 - Recent evidence suggests that faecal immunochemical testing (FIT) can rule out colorectal cancer (CRC) in symptomatic adults. To date, there has been little research exploring experiences of FIT for this population. To explore patient experience and satisfaction with FIT in an 'early adopter' site in England. Explanatory sequential mixed-methods approach combining mailed quantitative surveys wi...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9879991
Nature Communications; Baruch Leshem A, Sloan-Dennison S et. al.

Jan 27th, 2023 - Inspired by the role of intracellular liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) in formation of membraneless organelles, there is great interest in developing dynamic compartments formed by LLPS of intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) or short peptides. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the formation of biomolecular condensates have not been fully elucidated, rendering on-demand desi...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9876418
Malaria Journal; Sauer LM, Canovas R et. al.

Jan 27th, 2023 - Protozoan parasites are known to attach specific and diverse group of proteins to their plasma membrane via a GPI anchor. In malaria parasites, GPI-anchored proteins (GPI-APs) have been shown to play an important role in host-pathogen interactions and a key function in host cell invasion and immune evasion. Because of their immunogenic properties, some of these proteins have been considered as ...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9879485
PloS One; Majid S, Weisbrod RM et. al.

Jan 27th, 2023 - Pod-based electronic (e-) cigarettes more efficiently deliver nicotine using a protonated formulation. The cardiovascular effects associated with these devices are poorly understood. We evaluated whether pod-based e-liquids and their individual components impair endothelial cell function. We isolated endothelial cells from people who are pod users (n = 10), tobacco never users (n = 7), and comb...

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC9879488
PloS One; Diedrich A, Sivaganesan M et. al.

Jan 27th, 2023 - Municipal stormwater systems are designed to collect, transport, and discharge precipitation from a defined catchment area into local surface waters. However, these discharges may contain unsafe levels of fecal waste. Paired measurements of Escherichia coli, precipitation, three land use metrics determined by geographic information system (GIS) mapping, and host-associated genetic markers indic...
