Background: Multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) develops due to problems such as irregular drug supply, poor drug quality, inappropriate prescription, and poor adherence to treatment. These factors allow the development and subsequent transmission of resistant strains of the pathogen. However, due to the chronic nature of MDR-TB, cure models allow us to investigate the covariates that are associated with the long-term effects of time-to-sputum conversion among multi-drug resistant (MDR-TB) tuberculosis individuals...

The vast majority of persons with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection will achieve virologic cure with the current direct-acting antiviral therapies. Prevention of reinfection is an important aspect of postcure management and key to the elimination of HCV infection globally. Equally important aspects of postcure care are the prevention of liver disease progression and the management of complications in patients who have significant fibrosis at the time of achieving cure. Patients with advanced fibrosis need to remain under surveillance for liver complications, including hepatocellular carcinoma...

Obesity is a civilization disease, which occurrence in the world population is gradually increasing. The basic causes of obesity include a sedentary lifestyle and energy-rich diet contributing to a positive energy balance. Methods of curing obesity contain the lifestyle modification, the pharmacological treatment and the surgical treatment. The bariatric surgery is a therapy that can be used among patients with BMI ≥40 or BMI ≥35 kg/m2 with comorbidities, e.g. hypertension, for whom previous treatment has been ineffective...

Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) are widely prevalent metabolic diseases with differing pathologies. T1DM manifests due to autoimmune destruction of the pancreatic beta cells, resulting in a diminished secretion of insulin. T2DM originates from a state of insulin resistance, resulting in hyperglycemia and reduction in beta cell mass. Both diseases can cause severe health consequences. Despite the globally increasing prevalence of both T1DM and T2DM there remains to be a medically defined cure for either of these diseases...

Endocrine disruptors have gained widespread attention owing to their severe adverse health impacts. These produce enormous burden of disease and are associated with high economic cost especially in developed countries. Environmental pollutants causing endocrine disruption include pesticides, industrial wastes, packaging materials, food constituents, plastics, and cosmetic products. Likewise, pharmaceutical drugs have the endocrine disrupting potential through a wide array of mechanisms. Antipsychotic, antiepileptic, antihypertensive, antiviral, antidiabetic, and anticancer drugs are among the foremost non-hormonal endocrine disruptors...

Aim Scutellariae Radix (SR) and Coptidis Rhizoma (CR) have often been combined to cure type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in the clinical practice for over thousands of years, but their compatibility mechanism is not clear. Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathway has been suggested to play a critical role during the process of inflammation, insulin resistance, and T2DM. This study was designed to investigate their compatibility effects on T2DM rats and explore the underlying mechanisms by analyzing the metabolic profiling and MAPK/PI3K/Akt signaling pathway...

SIGNIFICANCE: Type 2 diabetes development involves multiple changes inβ-cells, related to the oxidative stress and impaired redox signaling, beginning frequently by sustained overfeeding due to the resulting lipotoxicity and glucotoxicity. Uncovering relations among the dysregulated metabolism, impaired β-cell "well being", biogenesis, or crosstalk with peripheral insulin resistance is required for elucidation of type 2 diabetes etiology. Recent Advances: It has been recognized that the oxidative stress, lipotoxicity and glucotoxocity cannot be separated from numerous other cell pathology events, such as the attempted compensation ofβ-cell for the increased insulin demand and dynamics ofβ-cell biogenesis and its "reversal" at dedifferentiation, i...

Behind only Alzheimer's disease, vascular contributions to cognitive impairment and dementia (VCID) is the second most common cause of dementia, affecting roughly 10-40% of dementia patients. While there is no cure for VCID, several risk factors for VCID, such as diabetes, hypertension, and stroke, have been identified. Elevated plasma levels of homocysteine, termed hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy), are a major, yet underrecognized, risk factor for VCID. B vitamin deficiency, which is the most common cause of HHcy, is common in the elderly...

Huangdi Neijing ()considered that "wasting-and-thirst" patients should not take mineral drugs. The period from Wei-Jin to Tang Dynasty, to meet the need for mildly strengthening Yang by tonic, people no longer considered that "wasting-and-thirst" patients can't take mineral drugs. It was popular to take mineral elixir. The rich people who consumed mineral elixir were susceptible of diabetes. The practitioners observed that taking mineral elixir and sexual behaviors were related to "wasting-and-thirst" , and therefore, they realized that taking mineral elixir was main cause of getting it...

Within the more than one hundred disease entities for which autoimmunity causation have been alleged, two subgroups can be identified. The first group is characterized by ability of disruption of the effector arm of the immune response to temporarily reverse the signs and symptoms of disease. The second group is characterized by the presence of antibodies directed against the target organ's cellular or subcellular components. As long as therapeutic palliation of the signs and symptoms of disease can be achieved, attributing causation to autoimmunity has tended to arrest therapeutics focus on attaining cure...

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a serious pregnancy complication, in which women without previously diagnosed diabetes develop chronic hyperglycemia during gestation. In most cases, this hyperglycemia is the result of impaired glucose tolerance due to pancreatic β-cell dysfunction on a background of chronic insulin resistance. Risk factors for GDM include overweight and obesity, advanced maternal age, and a family history or any form of diabetes. Consequences of GDM include increased risk of maternal cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes and macrosomia and birth complications in the infant...

An aging world population exposed to a sedentary life style is currently plagued by chronic metabolic diseases, such as type-2 diabetes, that are spreading worldwide at an unprecedented rate. One of the most promising pharmacological approaches for the management of type 2 diabetes takes advantage of the peptide hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) under the form of protease resistant mimetics, and DPP-IV inhibitors. Despite the improved quality of life, long-term treatments with these new classes of drugs are riddled with serious and life-threatening side-effects, with no overall cure of the disease...

BACKGROUND: Emphysematous cholecystitis and spontaneous hepatic hemorrhage are uncommon and serious conditions with non-specific presentations that can lead to a poor clinical outcome. We report a case of spontaneous hepatic hemorrhage of emphysematous cholecystitis. A 49-year-old male presented to the emergency department with fever, chills, right upper quadrant pain, vomiting, and diarrhea of four days' duration. He had a history of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and uarthritis. Computed tomography (CT) revealed an enlarged gallbladder with intra-luminal, intra-mural, and peri-cholecystic air; subcapsular high-density fluid collection; and an intra-hepatic mass with gas and liquid in the right lobe of the liver...

The incidence of diabetes mellitus in dogs is increasing in recent years, mainly because of genetic and/or environmental factors, including endocrine disorders (like in humans); failure of suitable control of blood sugar levels, which triggers hyperglycemia; glycosuria and weight loss, which demands the development of innovative treatments to cure or treat this complex disease in dogs. The present study established for the first time a protocol to obtain and characterize cells derived from pancreas of canine fetuses...
