Normoglycemic diabetic ketoacidosis should be suspected in pregnant women presenting nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and anorexia. We report a 39 years old woman with a 32 weeks pregnancy who sought emergency care due to hyperemesis. She was hospitalized with the following diagnoses: pregnancy hypertension syndrome, gestational diabetes, morbid obesity and poor prenatal control. The evaluation of the feto-placental unit showed perception of fetal movements, non-reactive non-stress baseline record and a biophysical profile of 6/8...

Inonotus obliquus polysaccharides (IOPs) are a potential drug for the prevention and treatment of cancer, cardiopathy, diabetes, AIDs, pancreatitis and other diseases. In this study, we found that IOP can act as a broad-spectrum antiviral drug against feline viruses in the in vitro experiment. Using cell models of feline calicivirus (FCV), we demonstrated that IOP treatment was capable of exhibiting anti-FCV strain F9 activity in cell-based assays and also showed low cytotoxicity. Investigation of the mechanism of action of the compound revealed that IOP treatment induces its inhibitory actions directly on virus particles through blocking viral binding/absorpting...

Epoxygenase-dependent metabolites of arachidonc acid, EETs and the heme-oxygenase (HO)-1/carbon monoxide/bilverdin system share similarities in their activity and mediators. They control endothelial function, dilating small arterial vessels, decrease blood pressure, protect the heart from ischemic and hypertensive cardiopathy, control renal circulation and function, promote angiogenesis and organ regeneration, oppose oxidative stress and inflammation, improve diabetes and obesity, have protective effects on the liver, and participate in portal hypertension...

OBJECTIVES: Improvement of clinical results in heart transplantation (HTx) has favoured the expansion of indication criteria towards aged population. The impact of increasing recipient age is controversial and, owing to donor shortage, the debate still remains whether HTx is justified for older patients. We analysed age as a prognostic factor at long-term after HTx and if it should be a determinant in organ allocation. METHODS: Data of 364 consecutive patients who underwent cardiac transplantation between 1999 and 2014 at the University Hospital of Udine were analysed...

BACKGROUND: Recent findings in population-based studies suggest that abnormal P wave terminal force in lead V1 (PTFV1), a marker of left atrial abnormalities such as fibrosis, dilatation and elevated filling pressures, is associated with incident ischemic stroke, even in the absence of atrial fibrillation. However, whether PTFV1 predicts incident stroke in hypertensive patients during blood pressure lowering has not been examined. METHODS: Risk of incident stroke was examined in relation to abnormal PTFV1 on a baseline ECG in 7778 hypertensive patients with ECG left ventricular hypertrophy, no history of atrial fibrillation, in sinus rhythm on their baseline ECG with no incident atrial fibrillation during follow-up, who were randomly assigned to losartan-based or atenolol-based treatment...

Mulibrey nanism (MUL) is a rare autosomal recessive multi-organ disorder characterized by severe prenatal-onset growth failure, infertility, cardiopathy, risk for tumors, fatty liver, and type 2 diabetes. MUL is caused by loss-of-function mutations in TRIM37, which encodes an E3 ubiquitin ligase belonging to the tripartite motif (TRIM) protein family and having both peroxisomal and nuclear localization. We describe a congenic Trim37 knock-out mouse (Trim37(-/-)) model for MUL. Trim37(-/-) mice were viable and had normal weight development until approximately 12 months of age, after which they started to manifest increasing problems in wellbeing and weight loss...

Drug-induced liver injury is a frequent cause of acute liver failure. It may cause clinical manifestations ranging from simple alteration of the common liver function tests until more severe manifestations including encephalopathy, coagulopathy, and in many cases progressive multi-organ dysfunction. The condition, therefore, may be associated with higher morbidity and mortality as well as higher consumption of economic resources. In this paper, we present the case of a 71-year-old patient treated with hemodialysis, diabetic, with ischemic cardiopathy and severe peripheral vascular disease...

OBJECTIFS: L'HTA est responsable de nombreux remaniements structurels myocardiques avec une fibrose, conduisant à l'hypertrophie ventriculaire gauche et à l'altération progressive dans le temps des fonctions systolo-diastoliques du ventricule gauche. L'HTA et le diabète de type 2 sont des causes importantes de dysfonctionnement ventriculaire et des facteurs de risque d'insuffisance cardiaque. Les données actuelles suggèrent que la dysfonction systolique longitudinale du VG est retrouvée dans les premiers stades de la cardiomyopathie hypertensive...

OBJECTIFS: L'insuffisance cardiaque pose, par sa fréquence et sa gravité, un problème majeur de santé publique. Plusieurs facteurs peuvent influencer le risque de survenue d'une insuffisance cardiaque et expliquer les variations de prévalence et d'étiologie de cette pathologie entre différentes populations ou groupes ethniques. En Guadeloupe, où environ 85 % de la population est de type Afro-Caribéen, on observe une forte prévalence de certains facteurs de risque cardiovasculaires (FDRCV), tels que l'hypertension artérielle (30 %), le diabète (8 %) ou l'obésité (23 %), mais les données épidémiologiques concernant l'insuffisance cardiaque sont peu nombreuses...

The dysregulation of lipid metabolism has been implicated in various diseases, including diabetes, cardiopathies, dermopathies, retinal and neurodegenerative diseases. Mouse models have provided insights into lipid metabolism. However, progress in the understanding of these pathologies is hampered by the multiplicity of essential cellular processes and genes that modulate lipid metabolism. Drosophila and Caenorhabditis elegans have emerged as simple genetic models to improve our understanding of these metabolic diseases...

Gathering experimental data to test computer methods developed during a research is a hard work. Nowadays, some databases have been stored online that can be freely downloaded, however there is not a wide range of databases yet and not all pathologies are covered. Researchers with low resources are in need of more data they can consult for free. To cope with this we present an on-line portal containing a compilation of ECG databases recorded over the last two decades for research purposes. The first version of this portal contains four databases of ECG records: ischemic cardiopathy (72 patients, 3-lead ECG each), ischemic preconditioning (20 patients, 3-lead ECG each), diabetes (51 patients, 8-lead ECG each) and metabolic syndrome (25 subjects, 12-lead ECG each)...
