Vascular dementia (VaD), the second most common cause of cognitive impairment in the population, is a disease that results from reduction in regional cerebral blood flow and involves oxidative stress and inflammation. Co-ultramicronized PEALut (co-ultra PEALut) is a new compound with beneficial effects, which include anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Recently, co-ultraPEALut has been shown to exhibit neuroprotective effects in models of Parkinson's disease, cerebral ischemia and Alzheimer's disease...

Background Dutasteride has been successfully used in treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). However, dutasteride inhibits 5α-reductase type 1 and type 2 enzymes and may compromises glucocorticoids and androgen metabolism and alters metabolic function resulting in undesirable metabolic and sexual adverse side effects. Aim The aim of this study was to investigate the long-term adverse effects of dutasteride therapy in men with BPH on: i) blood glucose, ii) glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), iii) low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C); high density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) and total cholesterol (TC), iv) testosterone (T), v) liver alanine and aspartate aminotransferases (ALT and AST) and vi) erectile dysfunction (ED)...

Infravesical obstruction (IVO) is an important characteristic of the functional state of male lower urinary tract. It is believed that IVO confirmed by pressure-flow study findings warrants switching from a medical to surgical management of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). Intravesical prostatic protrusion (IPP) is a new indicator for detecting IVO secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). This indicator has several advantages over other non-invasive methods for evaluating IVO. The initial findings on the relationship between IPP and IVO suggest the feasibility of its clinical use as a screening tool in men with obstructive voiding symptoms...

Dinuclear alkynylplatinum(II) metallofoldamers with an oligomeric m-phenyleneethynylene backbone have been designed with the incorporation of a sterically undemanding, π-conjugated, and hydrophobic 2,6-bis(N-dodecylbenzimidazol-2'-yl)pyridine pincer ligand. The complex with the optimal chain length has been found to exhibit gelation behavior via stabilization by noncovalent Pt···Pt and π-π stacking interactions in the hierarchical architecture constructed from the single-turn helix. The chain lengths of the complexes have been found to be a critical determinant for their gelation behavior, conformations, and morphologies...

Overactive bladder (OAB) syndrome is a highly prevalent condition that may lead to medical complications and decreased quality of life. Emerging therapies focusing on selective electrical stimulation of peripheral nerves associated with lower urinary tract (LUT) function may provide improved efficacy and reduced side effects compared to sacral neuromodulation for the treatment of OAB symptoms. Prior studies investigating the effects of pelvic nerve (PelN) stimulation on LUT function were focused on promoting bladder contractions, and it is unclear if selective stimulation of the PelN would be beneficial for the treatment of OAB...

BPH associated with LUTS and sexual dysfunction is common. We performed UroLift on 11 patients, average age 71 years (range 56-90). IPSS improved by an average of 9 points post-procedure. Pre-operatively their post-void residuals were 306.3 ml (range 120-499 ml SD [120.6]) and their QMAX was 7 ml/s (range 4-14 SD [2.8] ml/s). Post-procedure the post-void residual decreased by 35.4% at 4 months (mean difference - 106.3 ml). QMAX improved by an average of 1.7 ml/s, which was not statistically significant...

BACKGROUND: Atherosclerosis is a systematic disease in which plaque builds up inside the arteries that can lead to serious problems related to quality of life (QOL). Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), erectile dysfunction (ED), and late-onset hypogonadism (LOH) are highly prevalent in aging men and are significantly associated with a reduced QOL. However, few questionnaire-based studies have fully examined the relation between atherosclerosis and several urological symptoms. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study comprised 303 outpatients who visited our clinic with symptoms of LOH...

In this study, a flexible ultrasonic transducer (FUT) was applied in a laser ultrasonic technique (LUT) for non-destructive characterization of metallic pipes at high temperatures of up to 176 °C. Compared with normal ultrasound transducers, a FUT is a piezoelectric film made of a PZT/PZT sol-gel composite which has advantages due to its high sensitivity, curved surface adaptability and high temperature durability. By operating a pulsed laser in B-scan mode along with the integration of FUT and LUT, a multi-mode dispersion spectrum of a stainless steel pipe at high temperature can be measured...
