Oxidative stress and inflammation are common findings in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients, and they are directly linked to clinical outcomes such as protein energy wasting and cardiovascular disease. Nuclear factor-erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) is the master regulator of antioxidant genes, regulating the expression of detoxifying enzymes of phase II and antioxidant responses. Furthermore, Nrf2 can also regulate anti-inflammatory cellular responses, by inhibiting nuclear factor kappa B activity (transcription factor that promotes inflammation)...

Background The number of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients with disease duration of more than 20 years (long disease duration PD, LPD) is on the rise. Objectives This study aims to describe the clinical profiles and the quality of life (QoL) of LPD patients from a cohort of the Chinese population. Methods We compared 71 LPD subjects to 60 PD patients who died less than 20 years after the onset of PD (control PD, CPD). A regression model was constructed to assess the determinants for 20 years survival and the QoL of LPD patients...

Limin Zou, Su Zhang, Baokai Wang, Jiubin Tan
A new scheme of super-resolution optical fluctuation imaging (SOFI) is proposed to broaden its application in the high-order case by separating the elimination of shot noise from the computation of cumulant, applying the low-pass denoising (LPD) operator to SOFI. The high-order cumulants are derived from a basic recursion of moments with the suppression of shot noise by the LPD on raw data. SOFI based on LPD (LPD-SOFI) demonstrates a 10.6-fold lateral resolution enhancement with the cumulant order of the 16th and a seven-fold three-dimensional resolution enhancement with the cumulant order of the 10th in experiments performed on a sparse sample of quantum dots...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effects of low-protein diet (LPD) on uremic toxins and the gut microbiota profile in nondialysis chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. DESIGN AND METHODS: Longitudinal study with 30 nondialysis CKD patients (stage 3-4) undergoing LPD for 6 months. Adherence to the diet was evaluated based on the calculation of protein equivalent of nitrogen appearance from the 24-hour urine analysis. Good adherence to LPD was considered when protein intake was from 90% to 110% of the prescribed amount (0...

A 56-year-old Japanese male with chronic active Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection (CAEBV) who developed systemic gamma-delta T-cell lymphoproliferative disease (LPD) is reported. Although immune cooling therapy was effective, he died of sudden and severe hypoxia and anemia soon after the initiation of cytotoxic chemotherapy that had been previously recommended. There might remain a difficulty to control fulminant adult-onset CAEBV. Additionally, we describe three types of lymphoid cells that were observed in his peripheral blood: morphologically normal lymphocytes, large blastic cells and mature ones with rough granules...

BACKGROUND: Few studies on the uncinate process-first approach in laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD) have been reported. The aim of this study is to compare the perioperative outcomes of LPD to open pancreaticoduodenectomy (OPD) in terms of feasibility, safety, and efficacy using the uncinate process-first approach. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective study included 102 patients who underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy between 2013 and 2017. Patients were divided into two groups based on the surgical approach: the laparoscopic surgery group (n = 47) and open surgery group (n = 55)...

Patients with a Ph-negative myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN) may harbor or develop lymphoproliferative disorders (LPD), however, the clinical and molecular determinants of MPN and LPD co-occurrence are still uncertain. In order to systematically pool the available knowledge, we conducted a scoping review of literature published since January 2005 and analyzed single-patient clinical data from 50 papers reporting 214 individuals harboring both MPN and LPD. Patients had been diagnosed essential thrombocythemia (44%), polycythemia vera (29%) or myelofibrosis (23%) at a median age of 67 years (26-94): half of them incurred a LPD after a median of 72 months from MPN diagnosis, while in 20% the LPD diagnosis was antecedent or synchronous...

OBJECTIVE: Overfeeding is a strategy for evaluating the effects of excess energy intake. In this secondary analysis we tested the possibility that different levels of dietary protein might differentially modify the response of fatty acyl-carnitines to overfeeding. METHODS: Twenty-three healthy adult men and women were overfed by 40% for 8 weeks while in-patients with diets containing 5% (LPD), 15% (NPD) or 25% (HPD) protein. Plasma fatty acyl-carnitines were measured by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) at baseline and after 8 weeks of overfeeding...

Development of an effective treatment against advanced tumors remains a major challenge for cancer immunotherapy. Approximately 50% of human melanoma is driven by B-Raf proto-oncogene mutation (BRAF-mutant). Tumors with such mutation are desmoplastic, highly immunosuppressive, and often resistant to immune checkpoint therapies. We have shown that immunotherapy mediated by low dose doxorubicin-induced immunogenic cell death was only partially effective for this type of tumor, and not effective in long-term inhibition of tumor progression...

The relationship between muscle strength and bone mineral content (BMC) and bone mineral density (BMD) is supposed from the assumption of the mechanical stress influence on bone tissue metabolism. However, the direct relationship is not well established in younger men, since the enhancement of force able to produce effective changes in bone health, still needs to be further studied. This study aimed to analyze the influence of muscle strength on BMC and BMD in undergraduate students. Thirty six men (24.9 ± 8...

Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated T- or natural killer (NK)-cell lymphoproliferative disease (LPD) is a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by chronic proliferation of EBV-infected lymphocytes. Patients may present with severe skin manifestations, including hypersensitivity to mosquito bites (HMB) and hydroa vacciniforme (HV)-like eruption, which are characterized by blister formation and necrotic ulceration. Skin biopsy specimens show inflammatory reactions comprising EBV-infected lymphocytes...

BACKGROUND: With the improvement of the surgical technique of Laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD), indications will be extended to patients with vascular invasion. With LPD, vascular grafts for reconstruction are more frequently needed because adequate mobilization is not always done and vascular grafts can safely facilitate reconstruction. We describe our experience of reconstruction with the falciform ligament. METHODS: Venous reconstruction is performed after removal of the specimen...

We report a rare case of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-positive polymorphic B-cell lymphoproliferative disorder (LPD) involving the lacrimal gland of a 28-year-old, apparently immunocompetent woman. She presented with a chief complaint of orbital swelling and tenderness and was found to have a lesion involving the right lacrimal gland and distal superior and lateral rectus muscles. Histology of the lesion revealed histiocytes with pleomorphic nuclei, reactive lymphocytes, and scattered cells that resembled the Reed-Sternberg (R-S) cells of classical Hodgkin lymphoma...

The Lidanpaidu Prescription (LDP), a hospital preparation, composed of Chinese classical preparations, has been reported to have antiendotoxin, anticoagulant and other effects. However, its therapeutic effect on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) and the mechanisms remain unclear. Therefore, we administered LPD pretreatment at different doses to examine the protective effects and mechanisms in LPS-induced AKI in mice. The kidney injury induced by LPS was assessed by histological examination...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (LPD), a surgical option for nonpancreatic periampullary adenocarcinoma (NPPA), is a complex procedure that has become increasing popular. However, there is no consensus as to whether this technique should be performed routinely. Our aim was to evaluate the outcomes of LPD compared with open pancreaticoduodenectomy (OPD). MATERIALS AND METHODS: From October 2010 to September 2015, 58 LPDs were performed to treat NPPA and were compared with 58 OPDs, which can theoretically be carried out by laparoscopic approach...

BACKGROUND: The CLLflow score was recently suggested as an improvement over the Moreau score (MS) for the diagnosis and classification of B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders (B-LPD). METHODS: We determined the CLLflow score in peripheral blood or bone marrow of a series of cases with an inconclusive immunophenotype, including samples with a MS of 3 (n = 52) and CD5-positive with a score of 2 (n = 38). As controls, B-LPD with a MS of 0-1 (n = 95), CD5-negative score 2 (n = 24), and score 4-5 (i...

Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) was recently described as an independent risk factor of bronchopulmonary dysplasia, the main respiratory sequelae of preterm birth. We previously showed impaired alveolarization in rat pups born with IUGR induced by a low-protein diet (LPD) during gestation. We conducted a genome-wide analysis of gene expression and found the involvement of several pathways such as cell adhesion. Here, we describe our unbiased microRNA (miRNA) profiling by microarray assay and validation by qPCR at postnatal days 10 and 21 (P10 and P21) in lungs of rat pups with LPD-induced lung-alveolarization disorder after IUGR...

BACKGROUND: The Moreau score is essential for the diagnosis of B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders (B-LPD). METHODS: We assessed the consistency of the Moreau score in a series of 138 patients with at least two samples involved by a B-LPD (316 samples) other than germinal center-derived malignancies, hairy cell leukemia, and mantle cell lymphomas. Patients with evidence of two distinct B-LPDs were also excluded. RESULTS: We found 53 inconsistencies in 44 of 138 (32%) patients...
