OBJECTIVES: Fear of diabetes and major surgery may prohibit referral of young children severely affected by pancreatitis for total pancreatectomy with islet autotransplant (TPIAT). We evaluated outcomes in our youngest TPIAT recipients, 3 to 8 years of age at surgery. METHODS: Medical records were reviewed for 17 children (9 girls) ages 8 years or younger undergoing TPIAT from 2000 to 2014. Most (14/17) had genetic risk factors for pancreatitis. Since 2006, TPIAT recipients were followed prospectively with health questionnaires including assessments of pain and narcotic use, and scheduled hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and mixed-meal tolerance tests (6 mL/kg Boost HP) before surgery, and at regular intervals after...

Assigned the universe of knowledge Ω as composed by one target and two exogenous signals, the conditional joint transfer entropy (CJTE), assessing the amount of information jointly transferred from the two sources to the target that can be uniquely linked to one of the two sources, was found useful to study cardiovascular control. We propose the assessment of CJTE from systolic arterial pressure (SAP) and respiration (R) to heart period (HP) conditioned on R (CJTESAP, R→HP|R) along the baroreflex, and from HP and R to SAP conditioned on R (CJTEHP, R→SAP|R) along the feedforward mechanical pathway, in 134 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery before (PRE) and after (POST) the induction of general anesthesia...

The study evaluates the k-nearest-neighbor (KNN) strategy for the assessment of complexity of the cardiac neural control from spontaneous fluctuations of heart period (HP). Two different procedures were assessed: i) the KNN estimation of the conditional entropy (CE) proposed by Porta et al; ii) the KNN estimation of mutual information proposed by Kozachenko-Leonenko, refined by Kraskov-Stögbauer-Grassberger and here adapted for the CE estimation. The two procedures were compared over HP variability recordings obtained at rest in supine position and during head-up tilt (HUT) in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis patients and healthy subjects...

Glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) measurement is currently a primary tool for diagnosis of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), especially for the assessment of chronic hyperglycemia. However, many studies reported the limitation of using HbA1c for T2DM diagnosis/prognosis, such as poor sensitivities, difficult standardization, and variable cut points across ethnic groups. Therefore, the aim of this study was to discover novel biomarkers associated with elevated HbA1c levels as complementary T2DM diagnostic tools...

The wide use of assisted reproductive technologies has contributed to the increased risk of ectopic and subsequently heterotopic pregnancy (HP) rate. Cervical ectopic pregnancy is a very rare and life-threatening form of ectopic pregnancy that can also present as HP. We are describing here a case of 34-year-old woman who presented with bleeding heterotopic cervical pregnancy (HCP). The concomitant viable cervical and intrauterine pregnancies were diagnosed at 8 weeks of gestation. Selective fetal reduction was done for cervical pregnancy following which uterine artery embolization was done as a life-saving measure, and subsequently, injection methotrexate was also given...

The aggregation of three different cyclodextrins (CDs): 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HP-β-CD), 2-hydroxypropyl-γ-cyclodextrin (HP-γ-CD) and sulfobutylether-β-cyclodextrin (SBE-β-CD) was studied. The critical aggregation concentration (cac) of these three CDs is quite similar and is situated at ca. 2% (m/v). There was only a small difference in the cac values determined by DLS and (1)H NMR. DLS measurements revealed that CDs in solution have three size populations wherein one of them is that of a single CD molecule...

For equivalent micellar volume fraction (Φ) systems containing anisotropic micelles are generally more viscous than those comprising spherical micelles. Many surfactants used in water-in- CO2 (w/c) microemulsions are fluorinated analogues of sodium bis(2-ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate (AOT): here it is proposed that mixtures of CO2-philic surfactants with hydrotropes and co-surfactants may generate elongated micelles in w/c systems at high-pressures (e.g. 100-400 bar). A range of novel w/c microemulsions, stabilised by new custom-synthesized CO2-phillic, partially fluorinated surfactants, were formulated with hydrotropes and co-surfactant...

Small heterodimer partner (SHP) is an atypical nuclear receptor expressed in heart that has been shown to inhibit the hypertrophic response. Here, we assessed the role of SHP in cardiac metabolism and inflammation. Mice fed a high-fat diet (HFD) displayed glucose intolerance accompanied by increased cardiac mRNA levels of Shp. In HL-1 cardiomyocytes, SHP overexpression inhibited both basal and insulin-stimulated glucose uptake and impaired the insulin signalling pathway (evidenced by reduced AKT and AS160 phosphorylation), similar to insulin resistant cells generated by high palmitate/high insulin treatment (HP/HI; 500μM/100nM)...
