BACKGROUND: Patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) often have high comorbidity burden that may complicate post-interventional course and drive increased healthcare expenditures. Racial disparity had been observed in lower extremity revascularization (LER) patterns and outcomes. In 2014, Maryland adopted an all-payer rate setting system to limit the rising hospitalization costs. This resulted in an aggregate payment system in which hospital compensation takes place as an overall per capita expenditure for hospital services...

BACKGROUND: Bone union after spinal fusion surgery with instrumentation has been determined only with imaging studies. We evaluated the usefulness of the serum ionic fluoride (SIF) concentration as a biomarker of the bone union status. METHODS: We enrolled 25 patients who underwent spinal surgery in our institution, and we divided patients into three groups with and without instrumentation (G1, G2, and G3). We collected the fasting serum level preoperatively and on day 1 (D1), week 1 (D7), week 2 (D14), month 1 (D30), month 3 (D90), and month 6 (D180) postoperatively, and measured SIF concentrations using the flow injection method with an ion-selective electrode...

Sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum calcium adenosine triphosphatase is responsible for transporting cytosolic calcium into the sarcoplasmic reticulum and endoplasmic reticulum to maintain calcium homeostasis. Sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum calcium adenosine triphosphatase is the dominant isoform expressed in cardiac tissue, which is regulated by endogenous protein inhibitors, post-translational modifications, hormones as well as microRNAs. Dysfunction of sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum calcium adenosine triphosphatase is associated with heart failure, which makes sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum calcium adenosine triphosphatase a promising target for heart failure therapy...

O-glycosylation is probably one of the most varied sets of post-translational modifications across all organisms, but amongst the most refractory to analyse. In animals, O-xylosylation of serine residues represents the first stage in the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans, whose repeat regions are generally analysed as fragments resulting from enzymatic or chemical degradation, whereas their core regions can be isolated by β-elimination or endo-β-xylosidase digestion. In the present study, we show that hydrazinolysis can be employed for release of glycosaminoglycan-type oligosaccharides from nematodes prior to fluorescent labelling with 2-aminopyridine...

An 81-year-old woman with acute respiratory distress was referred to our hospital. Computed tomography showed a large mass in the upper mediastinum with severe tracheal stenosis. Endotracheal intubation was performed under the preparation of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and high-frequency jet ventilation, and the tumor was completely removed. The pathologic diagnosis was a goiter. Post-operatively, respiratory distress disappeared. No tumor recurrences have been noted for more than 2 years after surgery...

Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChR) are present in many excitable tissues and are found both pre and post-synaptically. Through their non-specific cationic permeability, these nAChRs have excitatory roles in neurotransmission, neuromodulation, synaptic plasticity, and neuroprotection. Thus, nAChR mislocalization or functional deficits are associated with many neurological disease states. Therefore identifying the mechanisms that regulate nAChR expression and function will inform our understanding of normal as well as pathological physiological conditions and offer avenues for potential therapeutic advances...

BACKGROUND: Compared with total gastrectomy, proximal gastrectomy (PG) has potential advantages from a nutritional perspective, such as anemia and postoperative loss of body weight. However, PG is associated with some postoperative functional disorders, such as reflux esophagus (13-31%) and anastomotic stenosis (3-29%).1 We therefore developed a new procedure for fundoplication during esophago-gastrostomy after robotic PG (RPG). METHODS: We performed RPG for early gastric cancer localized in the upper third of the stomach using the da Vinci Surgical System (Intuitive, Sunnyvale, CA)...

H1069Q substitution represents the most frequent mutation of the copper transporter ATP7B causing Wilson disease in Caucasian population. ATP7B localizes to the Golgi complex in hepatocytes but moves in response to copper overload to the endo-lysosomal compartment to support copper excretion via bile canaliculi. In heterologous or hepatoma-derived cell lines, overexpressed ATP7B-H1069Q is strongly retained in the ER and fails to move to the post-Golgi sites, resulting in toxic copper accumulation. However, this pathogenic mechanism has never been tested in patients' hepatocytes, while animal models recapitulating this form of WD are still lacking...

Mutations in bestrophin-1 (BEST1) are associated with distinct retinopathies, notably three forms with autosomal dominant inheritance and one condition with an autosomal recessive mode of transmission. The molecular mechanisms underlying their distinct retinal phenotypes are mostly unknown. Although heterozygous missense mutations in BEST1 reveal dominant-negative effects in patients with autosomal dominant Best disease (BD), heterozygous mutations associated with autosomal recessive bestrophinopathy (ARB) display no disease phenotype...

Claudin-2 is highly expressed in human lung adenocarcinoma cells and involved in the promotion of proliferation. Here, we searched for a compound, which can decrease claudin-2 expression using lung adenocarcinoma A549 cells. In the screening using compounds included in royal jelly and propolis, the protein level of claudin-2 was dose-dependently decreased by caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), whereas the mRNA level and promoter activity were only decreased by 50 μM CAPE. These results suggest that CAPE down-regulates claudin-2 expression mediated by two different mechanisms...

Research on the antiepileptic effects of (endo-)cannabinoids has remarkably progressed in the years following the discovery of fundamental role of the endocannabinoid (eCB) system in controlling neural excitability. Moreover, an increasing number of well-documented cases of epilepsy patients exhibiting multi-drug resistance report beneficial effects of cannabis use. Pre-clinical and clinical research has increasingly focused on the antiepileptic effectiveness of exogenous administration of cannabinoids and/or pharmacologically induced increase of eCBs such as anandamide (also known as arachidonoylethanolamide [AEA])...

Schistosomiasis is a neglected tropical disease caused by trematode of the genus Schistosoma. Successful reproductive development is critical for the production of eggs, which are responsible for host pathology and disease dissemination. Endogenous small non-coding RNAs play important roles in many biological processes such as protection against foreign pathogens, cell differentiation, and chromosomal stability by regulating target gene expression at the transcriptional and post-transcriptional levels. In this study, we performed in silico analysis of endogenous small non-coding RNAs in different stages, and sex of S...

Background and aim:  Strictures are a major complication of esophageal endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for superficial esophageal carcinoma. Post ESD, stricture develops during the process of scar formation, which is related to inflammation caused by ESD. We planned a study to evaluate whether certain electrosurgical unit modes could attenuate strictures after esophageal ESD. Methods:  A total of 16 ESD, three-quarters of the esophageal circumference, were performed in four live pigs...

PURPOSE: To explore the heterogeneous transmission dynamics for influenza and identify the optimal serum antibody titer cutoff values for estimating its cumulative incidence. METHODS: We constructed a mathematical model describing serologically dependent disease transmission. The diagnostic performances of two serum antibody titer tests (single serum test and paired sera test) were evaluated, and cumulative disease incidence estimators were formulated. The model simulated the 2009 Japanese influenza A/H1N1 epidemic and investigated the optimal cutoff values and cumulative incidence estimates for this epidemic...

Dancing on pointe and relevé requires extreme plantar flexion of the talo-crural joint. Hence, these positions may lead to posterior ankle impingement syndrome (PAIS). PAIS often coincides with flexor hallucis longus tendinopathy (FHL tendinopathy, or "dancers' tendinitis"). Both injuries can appear in isolation as well. The goal of this review is to evaluate the results and the available levels of evidence of conservative and operative treatment (both open and endoscopic) of PAIS and FHL tendinopathy in dancers...
