Anorexia nervosa (AN) is a psychiatric disease with devastating physical consequences, with a pathophysiological mechanism still to be elucidated. Metagenomic studies on anorexia nervosa have revealed profound gut microbiome perturbations as a possible environmental factor involved in the disease. In this study we performed a comprehensive analysis integrating data on gut microbiota with clinical, anthropometric and psychological traits to gain new insight in the pathophysiology of AN. Fifteen AN women were compared with fifteen age-, sex- and ethnicity-matched healthy controls...

BACKGROUND: Routine physical examinations might be of value in HIV-infected patients, but the yield is unknown. We determined the diagnoses that would have been missed without performing annual routine physical examinations in HIV-infected patients with stable disease. METHODS: Data were collected from the medical records of 299 HIV-1-infected patients with CD4 count >350 cells/mm3 if not using combination antiretroviral therapy (cART), or CD4 count >100 cells/mm3 and undetectable viral load if using cART...

As there may be an association between within-visit blood pressure (BP) variability and cardiovascular disease (CVD), we investigated the clinical significance of this BP variability in non-dialysis chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: According to the median of coefficient of variation (CV) of three systolic BP (SBP) readings within a single visit, we divided hypertensive patients with stage G1-4 CKD already treated with antihypertensive therapy into the high SBP-CV group and the low SBP-CV group...

BACKGROUND: Post-hoc analyses of clinical trials and population-based studies have shown no difference in mortality between men and women, but often show that men are more likely to receive appropriate ICD therapy. We utilized a population-based registry to investigate the interaction of sex and age and the occurrence of ventricular arrhythmia in an ICD population. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 776 consecutive patients receiving an ICD for primary or secondary prevention in a provincial ICD registry were studied...

High-risk (HR) human papillomavirus (HPV) is now recognised as the principal cause of the increasing incidence rates of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) in some parts of the world.The primary risk factor for developing HPV-related OPSCC is oral HPV-infection and the majority of oral HPV-infections are acquired by oral sex. Progression into a OPSCC includes persistent infection with evasion of immune response in the microenvironment, the activation of viral early genes (E6, E7) in basal epithelial cells, the deregulation of cell cycle and the accumulation of chromosomal instability...

Acute heart failure (AHF) is the most common primary diagnosis for hospitalized heart diseases in Africa. As increased fatty acid β-oxidation (FAO) during heart failure triggers detrimental effects on the myocardium, we hypothesized that trimetazidine (TMZ) (partial FAO inhibitor) offers cardioprotection under normal and obese-related diabetic conditions. Hearts were isolated from 12-14-week-old obese male and female diabetic (db/db) mice versus lean non-diabetic littermates (db/+) controls. The Langendorff retrograde isolated heart perfusion system was employed to establish an ex vivo AHF model: a) Stabilization phase-Krebs Henseleit buffer (10 mM glucose) at 100 mmHg (25 min); b) Critical Acute Heart Failure (CAHF) phase-(1...

BACKGROUND: Whether increasing body mass index (BMI) is independently associated with parallel increased prevalence of hypertensive vascular and cardiac target organ damage (TOD) needs further clarification. METHODS: We analyzed 8815 hypertensive patients without prevalent cardiovascular disease, participating in the Campania Salute Network, grouped into BMI classes (normal 20-24.9kg/m(2), overweight 25-29.9kg/m(2) and obese ≥30kg/m(2)). Vascular and cardiac TOD was defined as ultrasound plaque (intima-media thickness>1...

Linkage to care (LTC) is a key element of the HIV care continuum, and a crucial bridge from testing and diagnosis to receipt of antiretroviral therapies and viral suppression. In 2012, the Los Angeles LGBT Center hired a full-time LTC specialist (LTC-S), who developed a unique client-centered approach to LTC. This single-arm demonstration project was designed to systematically evaluate the LTC-S intervention. Individuals who were newly diagnosed with HIV between March 2014 and September 2015 were eligible for enrollment...

BACKGROUND: PD patients treated with dopamine therapy can develop maladaptive impulsive and compulsive behaviors, manifesting as repetitive participation in reward-driven activities. This behavioral phenotype implicates aberrant mesocorticolimbic network function, a concept supported by past literature. However, no study has investigated the acute hemodynamic response to dopamine agonists in this subpopulation. OBJECTIVES: We tested the hypothesis that dopamine agonists differentially alter mesocortical and mesolimbic network activity in patients with impulsive-compulsive behaviors...

OBJECTIVES: We examined trends in CRT utilization overall and by sex and race and to assess whether CRT use is associated with a reduction in HF hospitalization and mortality. BACKGROUND: It is unknown whether underutilization and race/sex-based differences in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) use have persisted. The association between CRT and heart failure (HF) hospitalization and mortality in real-world practice remains unclear. METHODS: We linked 72,008 HF patients from 388 hospitals participating in Get With The Guidelines HF eligible for CRT with Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services data to assess CRT utilization trends, HF hospitalization rates, and all-cause mortality...

BACKGROUND: Young women are usually protected against coronary artery disease due to hormonal and risk-factor profile. Previous studies have suggested poorer outcome in women hospitalized with acute coronary syndrome as compared to men. However, when adjusted to age and other risk factors, this difference does not remain significant. We compared the risk-profile and outcome between young (≤55) women and men admitted with acute coronary syndrome. METHODS: We analyzed clinical characteristics, management strategies, and outcomes of men and women ≤55y enrolled in the biennial Acute Coronary Syndrome Israeli Surveys (ACSIS) between 2000 and 2013...
