INTRODUCTION: The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of red cell distribution width (RDW) on cancer-specific survival (CSS) in patients who undergo nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total number of 434 patients with pathologically proven RCC treated with radical or partial nephrectomy between 2003 and 2012 were identified in a single tertiary academic center. To evaluate the accuracy of RDW for CSS prediction, a receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve was plotted...

INTRODUCTION: The Kham Tibetans are one of several Tibetan ethnic subgroups living in the Kham area of China. Because studies on the high-altitude adaptation of the Kham people are scant, the main aim of this study is to investigate whether the response to hypoxia, especially polycythemia status, in the Kham Tibetans is different from other Tibetan ethnic subgroups. METHODS: The primary investigation was conducted on 346 native Kham Tibetan adults (268 men and 78 women) from 3 herdsmen villages located in Hongyuan County situated at an altitude of greater than 3600 m...

Objective To identify factors influencing regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rScO2) during one-lung ventilation (OLV) in thoracic surgery. Methods Totally 33 patients with an ASA physical status of 1-3 scheduled for elective thoracic surgery with one-lung ventilation under general anesthesia were recruited. After anesthesia was induced with propofol,fentanyl/sufentanil,and rocuronium. All patients received balanced anesthesia using sevoflurane. During OLV,volume-controlled ventilation was used with a tidal volume of 6-7 ml/kg and an inspiration:expiration ratio of 1:1...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is increasingly seen as a major public health problem, threat, and concern worldwide. In Yemen about 1.7% of the population is infected with chronic hepatitis C. This study aimed to detect the predictors for response to pegylated interferon and ribavirin (Peg-IFN/RBV) in chronic HCV Yemeni patients. The study was conducted on 100 patients with chronic HCV who received Peg-IFN/RBV in the 48th Military Hospital in Sana'a Yemen, from 2011 to 2013. All patients were subjected to complete history taking, thorough clinical examinations, routine laboratory investigation, and abdominal ultrasonography...

AIMS/ INTRODUCTION: Higher hedonic hunger has been observed in obese individuals compared to those without obesity, but little is known about its association with glycemic management. We aimed to examine the association between hedonic hunger and glycemic control in non-obese and obese patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D). METHODS: Between April and November 2016, a total of 211 T2D patients who underwent comprehensive diabetes assessments at a university-affiliated hospital were recruited into two groups according to body mass index (BMI): non-obese (BMI) = 18...

AIMS: Sodium glucose co-transport-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors reduce tubular glucose reabsorption, producing a reduction of blood glucose without stimulating insulin release. Aim of this meta-analysis is the systematic collection of available data from randomized trials, in order to establish the durability of the efficacy of SGLT-2 inhibitors on glycemic control and body mass index. METHODS: A meta-analysis was performed including all trials with a duration of at least 12 weeks, comparing SGLT-2 inhibitors with a non-SGLT-2 inhibitor agents in type 2 diabetes...

In this work, fast isoelectric focusing (IEF) was successfully implemented on an open paper fluidic channel for simultaneous concentration and separation of proteins from complex matrix. With this simple device, IEF can be finished in 10 min with a resolution of 0.03 pH units and concentration factor of 10, as estimated by color model proteins by smartphone-based colorimetric detection. Fast detection of albumin from human serum and glycated hemoglobin (HBA1c) from blood cell was demonstrated. In addition, off-line identification of the model proteins from the IEF fractions with matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS) was also shown...

BACKGROUND: Rhodiola algida has long been used to prevent acute and chronic altitude sickness. In our previous study, we screened for a bioactive fraction from R. algida. However, the effects and mechanisms of this bioactive fraction on chronic hypoxia-induced pulmonary arterial hypertension remain to be elucidated. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of bioactive fraction from R. algida (ACRT) on chronic hypoxia-induced pulmonary arterial hypertension (HPAH) and to understand the possible mechanism of its pharmacodynamic actions...

Context: Carnitine and its metabolites are centrally involved in fatty acid metabolism. While elevated circulating concentrations have been observed in obesity and insulin resistance, prospective studies examining whether these metabolites are associated with incident type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) are sparse. Objective: We performed a comprehensive evaluation of metabolites along the carnitine pathway in relation to incident T2D. Design: A total of 2519 patients (73...

BACKGROUND: No specific (only subgroup) recommendations for the use of long-acting muscarinic antagonists in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exist. The aim of this exploratory hypothesis generating study was to assess whether different phenotypic/endotypic characteristics could be determinants of the short-term ineffectiveness of the initial tiotropium bromide monotherapy in treatment naïve moderate to severe COPD patients. METHODS: A total of 51 consecutively recruited COPD patients were followed for 3 months after the initial evaluation and prescribed initial treatment (tiotropium)...

BACKGROUND: Data concerning long-term mortality predictors among large, purely diabetic hemodialysis collectives are scarce. METHODS: We used data from a multicenter, prospective, randomized trial among 1,255 hemodialysis patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and its observational follow-up study. The association of 10 baseline candidate variables with mortality was assessed by Cox proportional hazards regression. RESULTS: Overall, 103 participants survived the median follow-up of 11...

BACKGROUND: Low-grade systemic inflammation (LGSI) is often characterized by elevated levels of interleukin (IL)6, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)α, and C-reactive protein (CRP). Other serum proteins, ex vivo-stimulated cytokine production, and leukocyte count have, however, also been suggested LGSI-markers, but their associations with the metabolic syndrome (MS) are less clear. We aimed to evaluate mutual relationships between in vivo and ex vivo inflammatory markers and their association with MS and its subcomponents...

The present study was conducted to assess the relationship between anemia and pulse pressure (PP) and hypertension (HTN). Data from 16,060 adults (aged ≥20 years) in the fifth Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (2010-2012) were analyzed. Several key findings were identified. First, after adjusting for related variables, the odds ratio (OR) of anemia (hemoglobin <13 and <12 g/dL, in men and women, respectively), using the normal PP group (PP ≤61 mmHg) as a reference, was significant for the high PP cohort (PP >61 mmHg; OR, 1...
