Hayder A Al-Domi, Reem M Al Haj Ahmad
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The C3 complement component (C3) is increasingly recognized as a cardiometabolic risk factor. We aimed to examine the role of C3 in insulin resistance (IR) and its association with adiposity. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: Sixty-seven obese (18-35 years) participants were matched with normal weight participants from the University of Jordan. BMI, waist-hip ratio (WHpR), and waist-height ratio (WHtR) were calculated. Body percent fat mass (%FM) was determined using the bioelectrical impedance analysis...

REVIEW
Marjorie M Walker, Jonas F Ludvigsson, David S Sanders
Coeliac disease is an immune-mediated systemic disease triggered by exposure to gluten, and manifested by small intestinal enteropathy and gastrointestinal and extra-intestinal symptoms. Recent guidelines recommend a concerted use of clear definitions of the disease. In Australia, the most recent estimated prevalence is 1.2% in adult men (1:86) and 1.9% in adult women (1:52). Active case finding is appropriate to diagnose coeliac disease in high risk groups. Diagnosis of coeliac disease is important to prevent nutritional deficiency and long term risk of gastrointestinal malignancy...

BACKGROUND: Diabetes has been reported to be associated with an increased relative risk for mortality, with estimates ranging from 1.1 to 2.1. Findings are inconsistent regarding modification of the risk by gender and by age. The aim of this study was to estimate the mortality risk associated with new-onset diabetes in adulthood, by age group and gender. METHODS: From the database of a large health care provider, we identified 31,987 individuals diagnosed with diabetes during 2003-2005; and 162,656 individuals without diabetes, group-matched by age...

BACKGROUND: Knee proprioception is an integral component of neuromuscular control system that stabilizes the joints, reducing incidence of injury. Knee injuries' incidences differ between genders. Knee rotation is a component of different knee injury mechanisms. Gender differences in knee proprioception in internal (IR) and external (ER) rotations are not sufficiently studied. OBJECTIVE: To check whether proprioceptive acuity in IR and ER directions of knee rotation is inherently lower in women compared to men...

Objectives In colorectal cancer screening, randomized clinical trials have shown a 16% mean reduction in colorectal cancer mortality, but the Finnish randomized health services study showed no effect. We quantified spillover (the total indirect effect caused by the programme on the non-invited) and corrected the effectiveness estimate of the Finnish programme. Methods We retrieved from the Finnish Cancer Registry data on all non-invited colorectal cancer patients diagnosed in 1999-2013 in municipalities that adopted screening ( n = 18,948)...

An insulinoma is a rare pancreatic endocrine tumor which is typically a hypervascular, solitary small tumour. 90 % of tumors are benign and less than 2 cm in size. Some insulinomas are associated with MEN-1 syndrome. Some cases of insulinoma may present with neuropsychiatric symptoms and may be wrongly diagnosed as psychosis. We report a case of insulinoma in a 55 years old female who presented with episodes of abnormal behavior and altered sensorium. On detailed investigations she was diagnosed as a case of hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia due to insulinoma (in her case MRI abdomen was normal) DOTANOC PET CT confirmed the insulinoma in body/tail of pancreas...

OBJECTIVE: Asbestos is a known human carcinogen, with evidence for malignant mesothelioma (MM), cancers of lung, ovary, larynx and possibly other organs. MM rates are predicted to increase with a power of time since first exposure (TSFE), but the possible long-term attenuation of the trend is debated. The asbestos ban enforced in Italy in 1992 gives an opportunity to measure long-term cancer risk in formerly exposed workers. METHODS: Pool of 43 previously studied Italian asbestos cohorts (asbestos cement, rolling stock, shipbuilding), with mortality follow-up updated to 2010...

Animal models of cancer have been instrumental in advancing our understanding of the biology of tumor initiation and progression, in studying gene function, and in performing preclinical studies aimed at testing novel therapies. Several animal models of the MEN1 syndrome have been generated in different organisms by introducing loss-of-function mutations in the orthologues of the human MEN1 gene. In this review, we will discuss MEN1 and MEN1-like models in Drosophila, mice and rats. These model systems with their specific advantages and limitations have contributed to elucidate the function of Menin in tumorigenesis, which turned out to be remarkably conserved from flies to mammals, as well as the biology of the disease...

Several cross-sectional studies have demonstrated the relevance of DNA methylation of the glucocorticoid receptor exon 1F region (GR-1F) for trauma-related psychopathology. We conducted a longitudinal study to examine GR-1F methylation changes over time in relation to trauma exposure and the development of post-deployment psychopathology. GR-1F methylation (52 loci) was quantified using pyrosequencing in whole blood of 92 military men 1 month before and 6 months after a 4-month deployment period to Afghanistan...

OBJECTIVE: Evaluate the incidence and predictors of HIV acquisition from outside partners in serodiscordant couples. METHODS: Demographic, behavioral, and clinical exposures were measured quarterly in a cohort of serodiscordant cohabiting couples in Zambia from 1995 to 2012 (n = 3049). Genetic analysis classified incident infections as those acquired from the study partner (linked) or acquired from an outside partner (unlinked). Factors associated with time to unlinked HIV infection were evaluated using multivariable Cox proportional hazards regression stratified by sex...

In 2015, we conducted a cross-sectional, Internet-based, U.S. nationally representative probability survey of 2,021 adults (975 men, 1,046 women) focused on a broad range of sexual behaviors. Individuals invited to participate were from the GfK KnowledgePanel®. The survey was titled the 2015 Sexual Exploration in America Study and survey completion took about 12 to 15 minutes. The survey was confidential and the researchers never had access to respondents' identifiers. Respondents reported on demographic items, lifetime and recent sexual behaviors, and the appeal of 50+ sexual behaviors...
