Induction of the chaperone Heat Shock Protein 72 (HSP72) through heat treatment, exercise, or overexpression improves glucose tolerance and mitochondrial function in skeletal muscle. Less is known about HSP72 function in the liver where lipid accumulation can result in insulin resistance and Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD). The purpose of this study was 1) to determine whether weekly in vivo heat treatment (HT) induces hepatic HSP72 and improves glucose tolerance in rats fed a high-fat diet (HFD) and 2) to determine the ability of HSP72 to protect against lipid accumulation and mitochondrial dysfunction in primary hepatocytes...

RATIONALE: Pheochromocytomas are rare catecholamine-secreting tumors arising from adrenomedullary chromaffin cells, usually causing hypertension, palpitation and headache. However, pheochromocytoma crisis, on the contrary, might present with hypotension, multiple organ dysfunction or even mimicking other diseases, leaving physician with diagnostic difficulties. In this study, we present a case featured hypotension, shock and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome on admission, which nearly lead us to miss the diagnosis of pheochromocytoma...

As outlined in the "International Guidelines for Management of Sepsis and Septic Shock: 2016", initial fluid resuscitation and administration of antibiotics are key steps in the early management of sepsis and septic shock. However, such clear guidelines do not exist for pre-clinical sepsis models. To address these shortcomings, the Wiggers-Bernard conference on pre-clinical sepsis models was held in Vienna in May, 2017. The participants reviewed 260 of the most highly cited papers between 2003 and 2012 that used sepsis models...

Production of doubled haploid (DH) plants is an efficient tool in genetic and plant breeding programs; however, sweet pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) is recalcitrant to microspore embryogenesis and DH production. Trying to break the barrier of DH production, three independent experiments were conducted on microspore embryogenesis of sweet pepper. In the first experiment, the effect of cold (4 °C) and heat (32 °C) pretreatments were investigated on microspore embryogenesis of three genotypes of sweet pepper including "Inspiration F1," "Maratus F1," and "Magno F1" cultivars in a factorial design with three replications...

PURPOSE: Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a clinically aggressive disease with poor prognosis. Conventional chemotherapeutics are generally able to shrink the tumor mass, but often fail to completely eradicate cancer stem-like cells (CSCs) that are responsible for high risk of relapse and frequent metastases. In this study, we examined thermal sensibility of CSCs, developed an approach that enabled concurrent elimination of both the bulk of cancer cells and CSCs, and investigated the underlying mechanism...

Shockwave therapy has found its place in the medical treatment of various diseases of the locomotor system such as acute fracture, nonunion, chronic tendinitis and pseudarthrosis. Focused shock waves enable maximum energy in the therapeutic zone, and depth of penetration can be adjusted. Radial shockwave therapy primarily affects superficial tissues, so its application in medicine is doubtful. Our study aimed to assess long bone fracture healing in regard to soft tissues. For this investigation, 84 female Wistar rats were divided into a focused shockwave group (n=36), a radial shockwave group (n=36) and a control group (n=12)...

Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a devastating disease that typically affects immunocompromised patients, chronically debilitated patients or drug users, but can also affect healthy patients. Necrotizing fasciitis can rapidly produce septic shock and requires immediate surgical management of the necrotic tissue. It is a bacterial infection that progresses rapidly and has a high mortality generally caused by aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. The patient was immunocompromised and drug user. During treatment, a combination of broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy with Ciprofloxacin and Metronidazole, besides the use of activated charcoal dressing composed of carbonized fabric and impregnated with 0...
