Background: According to common belief, most myocardial infarctions (MIs) are due to the rupture of nonsevere, vulnerable plaques with < 70% obstruction. Data from recent trials challenge this belief, suggesting that the risk of coronary occlusion is, in fact, much higher after severe stenosis. The aim of this study was to investigate whether or not acute ST-elevation MIs result from high-grade stenoses by evaluating the presence of coronary collateral circulation (CCC). Methods: We retrospectively included 207 consecutive patients who had undergone primary percutaneous coronary intervention for acute ST-elevation MI...

BACKGROUND: Many patients continue to have high blood pressure (BP) even after treatment with high-dose (H)-angiotensin II type 1 receptor blocker (ARB)/calcium channel blocker (CCB) or middle-dose (M)-ARB/CCB/hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ). METHODS: Thirty-two hypertensive patients who had the use of H-ARB/CCB or M-ARB/CCB/HCTZ were enrolled in this study. We applied a changeover with a switch to H-ARB (telmisartan 80 mg/day)/CCB (amlodipine 5 mg/day or nifedipine CR 40 mg/day)/HCTZ (12...

Hypertension is the most common cardiovascular disease in athletes. It is an important cause of long-term morbidity and mortality, even in a fit, athletic population. Management options to reduce these long-term risks exist that have minimal impact on athletic performance. Identification and management of underlying lifestyle factors and diseases that may lead to secondary hypertension is critical. These include substance abuse, medications, and underlying medical conditions. After evaluation and management of these issues, medications can be used to reduce blood pressure...

BACKGROUND: Urinary incontinence (UI) is frequently observed in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Although previous works highlight the association between frontal lobe-related function and UI, causal relationship is unclear. OBJECTS: To clarify the longitudinal association between frontal lobe function and the incidence of UI at 1 year in patients with AD. METHODS: The subjects were 215 continent AD patients who attended the Memory Clinic of the National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology of Japan during the period from March 2011 to December 2014...

Coronary artery spasm is a known cause of acute coronary syndrome. However, left main coronary spasm is an extremely rare entity and can present in different ways depending on the duration and severity of the spasm. We present a 44-year-old female patient who presented with transient ST elevation in the lead aVR and ST depression in the lateral and inferior leads. Coronary angiography showed mid left main and ostial right coronary artery spasm that significantly improved after intracoronary nitroglycerine administration...

BACKGROUND: Immunocytochemistry (ICC) on formalin-fixed paraffin embedded cell blocks is an ancillary tool commonly recruited for differential diagnoses of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) samples. However, the quality of conventional cell blocks in terms of adequate cellularity and evenness of distribution of cytologic material is not always satisfactory for ICC. We introduce a modified agarose-based cytoscrape cell block (CCB) technique that can be effectively used for the preparation of cell blocks from scrapings of conventional FNAC slides...

Cyprinid herpesvirus 3 (CyHV-3) is an alloherpesvirus, and it is the aetiological agent of koi herpesvirus disease. Although the complex morphogenic stages of the replication cycle of CyHV-3 were shown to resemble that of other members of the Herpesvirales, detailed analysis of the sequence and timing of these events was not definitively determined. This study describes these features through a time course using cyprinid cell cultures (KF-1 and CCB) infected with CyHV-3 (KHV isolate, H361) and analysed by transmission electron microscopy...

The aim of this study was to estimate prevalence and severity of renal insufficiency in systemic sclerosis (SSc) and to assess risk factors associated with reduced glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in SSc patients. Seventy-three consecutive patients with SSc (67 women and 6 men), mean age 56.2 years, mean disease duration 6.7 years, were included in this cross-sectional study. GFR was measured by creatinine clearance (CCr) in all patients, as well as 24-h proteinuria. We assessed frequency and severity of renal insufficiency in our patients with SSc and estimated the association of renal insufficiency with age, disease duration, subtype of the disease, earlier diagnosed arterial hypertension, and medications for which we assumed to affect renal function-cytostatics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, glucocorticoids, ACE inhibitors, diuretics, and calcium channel blockers (CCB)...

The agarolytic bacterium Persicobacter sp. CCB-QB2 was isolated from seaweed (genus Ulva) collected from a coastal area of Malaysia. Here, we report a high-quality draft genome sequence for QB2. The Rapid Annotation using Subsystem Technology (RAST) annotation server identified four β-agarases (PdAgaA, PdAgaB, PdAgaC, and PdAgaD) as well as galK, galE, and phosphoglucomutase, which are related to the Leloir pathway. Interestingly, QB2 exhibited a diauxic growth in the presence of two kinds of nutrients, such as tryptone and agar...

Calcium channel blockers (CCBs) have a narrow therapeutic index, and their intake in excess is associated with a critical clinical presentation of sustained hypotension and non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema, which are difficult to treat. Unfortunately, available means of treatment fail to resuscitate a significant number of patients poisoned by CCBs, rendering them the main cardiovascular drugs involved in deaths due to overdose. Importantly, in all cases reported until now in the literature, CCB intoxication was known at the time of the patients' presentation and the medical challenge regarded solely the therapeutic approach...

This study was conducted to know the impact of cryopreservation on caprine fetal adnexa derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) on the basic stem cell characteristics. Gravid caprine uteri (2-3 months) were collected from local abattoir to derive {amniotic fluid (cAF), amniotic sac (cAS), Wharton's jelly (cWJ) and cord blood (cCB)} MSCs and expanded in vitro. Cells were vitrified at 3(rd) passage (P3) using 10% DMSO. Post thaw viability and cellular properties were assessed. Cells were expanded to determine growth kinetics, tri-lineage differentiation, localization and molecular expression of MSCs and pluripotency markers; thereafter, these cells were transplanted in the full-thickness (2 × 2cm(2) ) rat skin wound to determine their wound healing potential...

We tested the hypothesis that calcium channel blockers (CCBs: amlodipine group, n = 38)) are superior to angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs: valsartan group, n = 38) against ambulatory blood pressure variability (BPV) in untreated Japanese hypertensive patients. Both drugs significantly reduced ambulatory systolic and diastolic BP values. With regard to BPV, standard deviation (SD) in SBP did not change with the administration of either drug, but the ARB significantly increased SD in awake DBP (12 ± 4-14 ± 4 mmHg)...

The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans is well established as a system for characterization and discovery of molecular mechanisms mediating microbe-specific inducible innate immune responses to human pathogens. Coxiella burnetii is an obligate intracellular bacterium that causes a flu-like syndrome in humans (Q fever), as well as abortions in domesticated livestock, worldwide. Initially, when wild type C. elegans (N2 strain) was exposed to mCherry-expressing C. burnetii (CCB) a number of overt pathological manifestations resulted, including intestinal distension, deformed anal region and a decreased lifespan...

Drug-induced parkinsonism (DIP) is classically described as acute/subacute, bilateral symmetric syndrome in which tremor is infrequent compared to Parkinson's disease. Most DIP cases are caused by classic (CN) and second-generation neuroleptics (SN), and calcium channel blockers (CCB). We evaluated potentially distinctive demographic and clinical features in DIP among different drug classes. This was a prospective study of reversible DIP related to single selected drugs on each class. Baseline assessment included demographic, clinical data, and scales for staging, severity of motor signs of parkinsonism, tremor, and other involuntary movements...
