INTRODUCTION: Pancreatic cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related death. Its diagnosis is often delayed and patients are frequently found to have unresectable disease. Patients diagnosed with new-onset diabetes have an 8-fold risk of harboring pancreatic cancer. Adrenomedullin has been claimed to mediate diabetes in pancreatic cancer. New screening tools are needed to develop an early diagnosis protocol. METHODS: Patients aged 45-75 years within 2 years of first fulfilling the ADA criteria for diabetes will be prospectively enrolled in this study...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Recent progression towards precision medicine has encouraged the use of electronic health records (EHRs) as a source for large amounts of data, which is required for studying the effect of treatments or risk factors in more specific subpopulations. Phenotyping algorithms allow to automatically classify patients according to their particular electronic phenotype thus facilitating the setup of retrospective cohorts. Our objective is to compare the performance of different classification strategies (only using standardized problems, rule-based algorithms, statistical learning algorithms (six learners) and stacked generalization (five versions)), for the categorization of patients according to their diabetic status (diabetics, not diabetics and inconclusive; Diabetes of any type) using information extracted from EHRs...

The study aimed to describe the effectiveness of switching the anti-TNFα agent when an acceptable clinical response has not been obtained with the first anti-TNFα agent in patients with uveitis in VKH syndrome. Patients diagnosed with VKH syndrome being evaluated from the uveitis unit of a single tertiary hospital from January 1, 2000, to October 30, 2015. Patients who presented uveitis with an inadequate response to a first anti-TNFα and required switching to a second anti-TNFα were selected. Complete clinical response was assumed in patients whose visual acuity was normal and those who showed absence of inflammatory findings (inflammatory cells in the anterior chamber and vitritis) or absence of macular thickening in upon OCT...

Development of an appropriate assay to detect anti-drug antibody (ADA) is important for assessing immunogenicity to therapeutic protein products. However, characterizing ADA assay methods is difficult because human ADA as a reference standard is not available in most cases. We compared the analytical performance of three ligand-binding assay methods for ADA, namely, surface plasmon resonance (SPR), electrochemiluminescence (ECL), and biolayer interferometry (BLI) methods, by using the anti-erythropoietin (EPO) monoclonal antibody reference panel developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2015...
