In 2011, we provided a review of clinical updates and controversies surrounding anticoagulation bridge therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation. Since then, options for oral anticoagulation have expanded with the addition of four direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC) agents available in the United States. Nonetheless, vitamin K antagonist (VKA) therapy continues to be the treatment of choice for patients who are poor candidates for a DOAC and for whom bridge therapy remains a therapeutic dilemma. However, bridge therapy for patients taking a VKA remains a therapeutic dilemma...

BACKGROUND AIMS: Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) are used as experimental immunotherapy. Extensive culture expansion is necessary to obtain clinically relevant cell numbers, although the impact on MSCs stability and function is unclear. This study investigated the effects of long-term in vitro expansion on the stability and function of MSCs. METHODS: Human bone marrow-derived (bmMSCs) and umbilical cord-derived (ucMSCs) MSCs were in vitro expanded. During expansion, their proliferative capacity was examined...

BACKGROUND: Recently, the LIfestyle for BRAin health (LIBRA) index was developed to assess an individual's prevention potential for dementia. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the predictive validity of the LIBRA index for incident dementia in midlife, late life, and the oldest-old. METHODS: 9,387 non-demented individuals were recruited from the European population-based DESCRIPA study. An individual's LIBRA index was calculated solely based on modifiable risk factors: depression, diabetes, physical activity, hypertension, obesity, smoking, hypercholesterolemia, coronary heart disease, and mild/moderate alcohol use...

OBJECTIVE: Loneliness and depression have a strong reciprocal influence, and both predict adverse health outcomes at old age. Therefore, this study examines whether loneliness is associated with the presence of cardiovascular diseases taking into account the role of late-life depression. METHODS: Cross-sectional data of 477 older adults in the Netherlands Study of Depressed Older Persons were used. Logistic regression analysis was performed to examine the relation between loneliness and cardiovascular disease...

BACKGROUND: Elevated plasma apoB is an independent predictor of T2D; however, underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Chronic reduction in white adipose tissue (WAT) function promotes T2D. We reported that differentiation of preadipocytes and acute incubation of human WAT with LDL induce their dysfunction (decreased hydrolysis and storage of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins [TRL]). OBJECTIVE: To examine the hypothesis that the association of plasma apoB with T2D risk factors, hypertriglyceridemia (hyperTG), insulin resistance (IR), and hyperinsulinemia, was dependent on WAT dysfunction...

Savoring is the ability to be mindful of positive experiences and to be aware of and regulate positive feelings about these experiences. Previous research has found that savoring interventions can be effective at improving well-being of younger adults, but findings have not been extended to older populations. This pilot study examined the effects of a 1-week savoring intervention on older adults' psychological resilience and well-being (i.e., depressive symptoms and happiness). Participants, 111 adults ages 60 or over, completed measures of resilience, depressive symptoms, and happiness pre- and postintervention as well as 1 month and 3 months after the intervention...

Background: The role of plasma apolipoprotein (apo) C-I in cardiometabolic risk in humans is unclear. However, in vitro studies showed a dual role for apoC-I, both protective and harmful, depending on the carrier lipoprotein.Objective: We tested the hypothesis that triglyceride (TG)-rich lipoprotein (TRL) apoC-I, not total or HDL apoC-I, is associated with delayed postprandial plasma clearance of TRLs, independently of apoC-II, apoC-III, and apoE.Methods: This cross-sectional study examines the plasma clearance of a (13)C-triolein-labeled high-fat meal (68% fat energy) in 20 postmenopausal overweight and obese women [body mass index (in kg/m(2)) ≥27; aged 45-74 y] as the increment change in area under the 6-h postprandial curves (iAUC6h) of TRL parameters...

BACKGROUND: Granulomatous prostatitis is an uncommon entity that is diagnosed incidentally on histopathology and is broadly classified as nonspecific, specific, postsurgical (post-transurethral resection), or secondary to other rare systemic granulomatous diseases. Only very few studies are available in the literature that describe the clinical and histomorphological spectrum of the disease. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of histopathological records of 1,181 prostatic specimens received in the pathology department was done over a period of 13 years (January 2003 to January 2016)...

Tamoxifen has played a vital role in endocrine therapy for the treatment of estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer. We examined the effect of tamoxifen in patients with a thin endometrium in frozen-thawed embryo transfer (FET) cycles and compared the improvement in endometrial thickness (EMT) and pregnancy outcomes stratified by different etiologies of thin endometrium. A total of 226 women were recruited for a new tamoxifen protocol; all had an EMT of less than 7.5 mm in previous cycles, including natural cycle (NC), hormone replacement treatment (HRT), and ovulation induction (OI) cycles...

OBJECTIVES: Available data suggest high burden on caregivers of patientswith bipolar disorder (BD), yet the well-being of patients with BD increasingly depends on family members, partners and close friends. Aspatients with BD get older, the need for informal care may shift. We aimed to describe the caregivers of older adults with BD (OABD) and explore what patients' and caregivers' characteristics are associated with caregiver burden. METHOD: Forty-seven caregivers of OABD were questioned about their perceived burden and depressive symptoms...

The incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is increasing worldwide, including in developing countries, particularly in South Asia. Intakes of foods generating a high postprandial glucose (PPG) response have been positively associated with T2DM. As part of efforts to identify effective and feasible strategies to reduce the glycaemic impact of carbohydrate-rich staples, we previously found that addition of guar gum (GG) and chickpea flour (CPF) to wheat flour could significantly reduce the PPG response to flatbread products...

OBJECTIVES: Late-life depression often has a chronic course, with debilitating effects on functioning and quality of life; there is still no consensus on important risk factors explaining this chronicity. Cross-sectional studies have shown that childhood abuse is associated with late-life depression, and in longitudinal studies with chronicity of depression in younger adults. We aim to investigate the impact of childhood abuse on the course of late-life depression. DESIGN: Two-year longitudinal cohort study...

Spontaneous osteonecrosis of the knee (SONK) is a feared condition of unknown cause, in its classic form appearing in the medial femoral condyle in middle-aged or elderly subjects. Diagnosis with radiography is notoriously difficult with a long latency before typical changes appear. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is regarded as a diagnostic tool with the possibility to give an earlier diagnosis with improved chances for treatment. However, also with MRI there may be an initial diagnostic blind spot before typical changes appear...

A 72-year-old woman who recently had been treated with metronidazole presented with subacute dysarthria, gait ataxia and encephalopathy with severe anxiety. Head MRI showed symmetrical T2-hyperintensities. Under suspicion of a metronidazole-induced encephalopathy, metronidazole was stopped immediately. The patient recovered completely and follow-up MRI showed complete resolution of T2-hyperintensities.

Some 21 million adults and children are labor-trafficked or sex-trafficked through force, fraud, or coercion. In recognition of the interface between trafficking victims and the healthcare setting, over the last 10 years there has been a notable increase in training of health care professionals (HCPs) on human trafficking (HT) and its health implications. Many organizations have developed curricula and offered training in various clinical settings. However, methods and content of this education on trafficking vary widely, and there is little evaluation of the impact of the training...
