End-stage renal disease is associated with mineral and bone disorders. Guidelines recommending therapies should be based on serial assessments of biomarkers, and thus on variations (Δ), rather than scattered values. We analyzed the correlations between ΔPTH and Δbone biomarkers such as bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (b-ALP), Beta-CrossLaps (CTX), osteocalcin, intact serum procollagen type-1 N-propeptide (P1NP), and tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase 5B (TRAP-5B) at different time-points. In this prospective observational analysis, variations of biomarkers were followed after 6-week (n = 129), 6-month (n = 108) and one-year (n = 93) period...

RATIONALE: Iloperidone (ILOP) is atypical antipsychotic drug used for the treatment of schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders. Comprehensive stress testing of ILOP drug was carried out as per ICH guidelines to understand the degradation profile of the drug. The presence of degradation products in a drug affects not only the quality, but also the safety and efficacy of drug formulation. Thus, it is essential to develop an efficient analytical method which could be useful for the separation, identification and characterization of all possible degradation products of ILOP...

Guidelines for suggested intake of ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are limited in youth and rely primarily on age. However, body weight varies considerably within age classifications. The current analyses examined effects of body weight and body mass index (BMI) on fatty acid accumulation in 64 youth (7-14 years) with a diagnosed mood disorder in a double-blind randomized-controlled trial (2000mg ω-3 supplements or a control capsule) across 12 weeks. Weight and height were measured at the first study visit and EPA and DHA levels were determined using fasting blood samples obtained at both the first and end-of-study visits...

The focus of the computational structural biology community has taken a dramatic shift over the past one-and-a-half decades from the classical protein structure prediction problem to the possible understanding of intrinsically disordered proteins (IDP) or proteins containing regions of disorder (IDPR). The current interest lies in the unraveling of a disorder-to-order transitioning code embedded in the amino acid sequences of IDPs/IDPRs. Disordered proteins are characterized by an enormous amount of structural plasticity which makes them promiscuous in binding to different partners, multi-functional in cellular activity and atypical in folding energy landscapes resembling partially folded molten globules...

BACKGROUND: Porokeratosis (PK) is a rare skin disease of unknown etiology. It consists of a keratinization disorder, which may appear in several clinical forms and can undergo malignant transformation. The histopathological hallmark of PK is the cornoid lamella. While many topical, systemic, and surgical treatment modalities for PK have been described, no randomized controlled trials have been performed yet. Because of a lack of treatment standards for PK, European and international guidelines cannot be created...

INTRODUCTION: Dietary phytochemicals are found in plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables and grains and may be categorised in a nested hierarchical manner with many hundred individual phytochemicals identified to date. To associate phytochemical intakes with positive health outcomes, a fundamental step is to accurately estimate the dietary phytochemical intake from foods reported. The purpose of this systematic review protocol is to describe the process to be undertaken to summarise the evidence for food-based dietary phytochemical intakes and health outcomes for adults...

BACKGROUND: Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic inflammatory cutaneous disorder that involves the infundibular terminal follicles in areas rich in apocrine glands and associated with the formation of abscesses and fistulating sinus. The clinical course is variable, and definitive evidence-based guidelines for the management are not well-established. Conservative treatment is controversial, and surgical excision is the recommended method. Herein, we aim to analyze the results of a modified conservative tissue preserving management protocol for stage I axillary hidradenitis suppurativa...

Carlos Torrente Artero
Metabolic acid-base disorders are common in emergency and critically ill patients. Clinicians may have difficulty recognizing their presence when multiple acid-base derangements are present in a single patient simultaneously. The anion gap and the strong ion gap concepts are useful calculations to identify the components of complex metabolic acid-base associated to the presence of unmeasured anions. This article presents their definition, normal values, indications, limitations, and guidelines for interpretation of changes in the clinical setting...

The first practice parameter on exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) was published in 2010. This updated practice parameter was prepared 5 years later. In the ensuing years, there has been increased understanding of the pathogenesis of EIB and improved diagnosis of this disorder by using objective testing. At the time of this publication, observations included the following: dry powder mannitol for inhalation as a bronchial provocation test is FDA approved however not currently available in the United States; if baseline pulmonary function test results are normal to near normal (before and after bronchodilator) in a person with suspected EIB, then further testing should be performed by using standardized exercise challenge or eucapnic voluntary hyperpnea (EVH); and the efficacy of nonpharmaceutical interventions (omega-3 fatty acids) has been challenged...

Treatment guidelines recommend that psychotherapy be used in conjunction with pharmacotherapy in children with bipolar disorder. A well-established category of psychotherapy is family skill-building plus psychoeducation; 3 examples of this are family-focused treatment, psychoeducational psychotherapy, and child- and family-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy. These treatments share several common elements that are important in pediatric populations, including being family-based, providing psychoeducation on symptoms and their management, and training patients and families in emotion regulation, communication, and problem-solving skills...

BACKGROUND: Several guidelines have set the target levels of serum Ca, phosphorus, and parathyroid hormone (PTH) for better management of chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorders (CKDMBD) in dialysis patients. Although serum ionized Ca (iCa) is a biologically active component, corrected Ca (cCa) is used in clinical settings. However, the association between iCa and cCa is affected by acid-base status. We investigated the difference in acid-base and the calcium-parathyroid status between hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD)...

Intrinsically disordered proteins fail to adopt a stable three-dimensional structure under physiological conditions. It is now understood that many disordered proteins are not dysfunctional, but instead engage in numerous cellular processes, including signaling and regulation. Disorder characterization from amino acid sequence relies on computational disorder prediction algorithms. While numerous large-scale investigations of disorder have been performed using these algorithms, and have offered valuable insight regarding the prevalence of protein disorder in many organisms, critical proteome-based descriptive statistical guidelines that would enable the objective assessment of intrinsic disorder in a protein of interest remain to be established...
