CONTEXT: Hypothyroidism is a significant cause of pericardial effusion. However, large pericardial effusions due to hypothyroidism are extremely rare. Hormone replacement therapy is the cornerstone of treatment for hypothyroidism and regular follow-up of patients after initiation of the therapy is indicated. Herein, the case of a 70-year-old woman with a massive pericardial effusion due to Hashimoto's disease is presented. ISSUES: A 70-year-old female from a rural village on the island of Crete, Greece, was admitted to our hospital due to a urinary tract infection...

Novel hemoglobin-based artificial oxygen carriers are necessary in tissue engineering. We developed human hemoglobin (hHb) and albumin (HSA)-based microspheres using Shirasu porous glass (SPG) membrane emulsification. The obtained microspheres had a uniform size with an average diameter of 15.1 μm measured by optical microscope, which is similar to the diameter of human red blood cells (7-8 μm). The loading amount of hHb in the microspheres was 20 wt%, which is similar to that of red blood cells (33 wt%)...

Thyroid autoimmunity is characterized by a large number of identified factors, and determining the relative importance of genetics and environment, for instance, can be difficult. In addition, the definition and progression of the individual diseases can also be challenging, and questions such as "when to begin treatment" or even "should treatment be begun" can be problematic. One approach to handling situations in which there are many factors is utilizing mathematical modeling. In a model, quantities that are clinically measurable are related through equations, based on known and inferred relationships between the systems involved...

Introduction: The co-existence of tissue-specific autoantibodies in autoimmune thyroid disease (ATD) is well established. The published prevalence of anti-parietal cell antibodies (PC-Ab) is 20-25%, and that of celiac antibodies is 2-5%. The goal of this study was to determine the prevalence of PC-Ab and anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies (tTG-Ab) in patients with ATD and to evaluate the correlation between anti-thyroid antibodies and the other antibodies. Material and methods: The files of 120 Israeli Jews and Arabs with ATD were evaluated for anti-thyroglobulin antibodies (Tg-Ab), anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPO-Ab), PC-Ab and tTG-Ab...

BACKGROUND: Functional disability of the finger joints in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients could affect their oral hygiene and periodontal status due to poor plaque control. We examined the influence of plaque control on the relationship between the severity of RA and periodontal status in RA patients. METHODS: This study recruited 89 Japanese RA patients who reported no difficulty in performing oral hygiene. We assessed RA severity using four indices: the Steinbrocker stage and class, the Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) and the Disease Activity Score (DAS)...

LT is a practical therapeutic alternative for unresectable hepatoblastoma; however, deciding when to perform LT is difficult. The aim of this study was to optimize the timing of LT for hepatoblastoma using pretransplant trends in AFP levels. Trends in pretransplant AFP levels and their influence on post-transplant outcomes were retrospectively evaluated. All patients who underwent living donor LT for hepatoblastoma in our institution since 2002 were included. Variables analyzed included history of prior tumor resection, pretransplant AFP responses to chemotherapy, metastatic disease at diagnosis, and post-transplant chemotherapy...

BACKGROUND: Enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) is the catalytic subunit of the polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2) and regulates tumor malignancy by gene silencing via histone methylation. In this study we investigate the role of EZH2 in angiogenesis of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). METHODS: The influence of EZH2 on tumor angiogenesis was examined by bioinformatics analysis of a public database. We also assessed the correlation between EZH2 and vasohibin 1 (VASH1) expression in 47 patients with ICC by immunohistochemical (IHC) staining and in vitro gene silencing assays...

Recent improvement of outcomes for resected non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has been contributed not only by increased detection of early-stage disease and improvement of preoperative diagnosis/perioperative management but also by improvement of multimodality treatment. The introduction of newly developed systemic therapies including molecular targeted agents and immune checkpoint inhibitors dramatically changed clinical outcomes of advanced NSCLC. Accordingly, the role of surgery during the multimodality treatment will be changed more than ever...

BACKGROUND: Measurement of flow-mediated vasodilation (FMD) is an established method for assessing endothelial function. Measurement of FMD is useful for showing the relationship between atherosclerosis and endothelial function, mechanisms of endothelial dysfunction, and clinical implications including effects of interventions and cardiovascular events. To shorten and simplify the measurement of FMD, we have developed a novel technique named short time FMD (stFMD). We investigated the validity of stFMD for assessment of endothelial function compared with conventional FMD...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Functional constipation is one of the common problems in childhood, and it comprises approximately 5% of the pediatric outpatient clinical applications. On the other hand, celiac disease (CD) is an immune enteropathy with the prevalence between 1/150 and 1/200. In addition to the classical symptoms of the disease such as diarrhea and weight loss, the incidence of atypical symptoms is increasing. This study aims to determine the prevalence of CD in patients with chronic constipation...

Gangliosides play roles in the regulation of cell signaling that are mediated via membrane microdomains, lipid rafts. In this review, functions of gangliosides in the maintenance of nervous systems with a focus on regulation of inflammation and neurodegeneration are addressed. During analyses of various ganglioside-lacking mutant mice, we demonstrated that nervous tissues exhibited inflammatory reactions and subsequent neurodegeneration. Among inflammation-related genes, factors of the complement system showed up-regulation with aging...

Given the paradigm of anti-insulin resistance in therapies for metabolic syndrome, there has been considerable interest in adiponectin (APN), an adipocyte-derived sensitizer of insulin receptor signaling. In contrast to hypoadiponectinemia in metabolic syndrome, evidence suggests that Alzheimer's disease (AD) and other diseases, including chronic heart failure (CHF) and chronic kidney disease (CKD), are characterized by hyperadiponectinemia as well as the APN/obesity paradoxes, indicating that a decrease in APN might also be beneficial for these diseases...

The Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation-specific Comorbidity Index (HCT-CI) is a widely used tool for pre-transplant risk assessment. Allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) is performed on patients with diverse backgrounds, highlighting the need for other predictors to complement the HCT-CI and support bedside decision-making. There is a strong body of evidence supporting the use of pre-transplant serum ferritin (SF) in risk assessments of allogeneic HCT. We additionally found that the Glasgow Prognostic Score (GPS), which assesses inflammatory biomarkers and predicts survival of patients with solid organ malignancies, is a useful predictive marker for overall survival (OS) and non-relapse mortality (NRM) in allogeneic HCT, independent of HCT-CI and SF...

Analysis of induced sputum supernatant is a minimally invasive approach to study the epithelial lining fluid and, thereby, provide insight into normal lung biology and the pathobiology of lung diseases. We present here a novel proteomics approach to sputum analysis developed within the U-BIOPRED (Unbiased BIOmarkers Predictive of REspiratory Disease outcomes) international project. We present practical and analytical techniques to optimise the detection of robust biomarkers in proteomic studies. The normal sputum proteome was derived using data-independent HDMSE applied to 40 healthy non-smoking participants, which provides an essential baseline from which to compare modulation of protein expression in respiratory diseases...

Parkinson's disease (PD) is characterized as a chronic and progressive neurodegenerative disorder, and the deposition of specific protein aggregates of α-synuclein, termed Lewy bodies, is evident in multiple brain regions of PD patients. Although there are several available medications to treat PD symptoms, these medications do not prevent the progression of the disease. Soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) plays a key role in inflammation associated with the pathogenesis of PD. Here we found that MPTP (1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine)-induced neurotoxicity in the mouse striatum was attenuated by subsequent repeated administration of TPPU, a potent sEH inhibitor...
