Drinking water arsenic (WAs) exposure has been linked to a number of detrimental health outcomes including anemia, primarily among pregnant women. Little is known about the effects of arsenic (As) on hematological disorders among men. We have examined the role of As exposure on hematological indicators of anemia in a group of men exposed to a wide range of As in their drinking water. We conducted a cross-sectional investigation among 119 healthy men in the Health Effects of As Longitudinal Study (HEALS) cohort, in rural Bangladesh...

Duodenal gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are uncommon. Tumors arising from the first and the second part of the duodenum (DI and DII, respectively) can be wrongly diagnosed as pancreatic mass. We present a case of a 59-year-old woman who came with abdominal pain and severe upper gastrointestinal bleeding (hemoglobin 3.5 g÷dL). A solid, heterogeneously enhancing neoplasm in the head of the pancreas was revealed preoperatively by an abdominal computed tomography scan. A diagnosis of GIST was suggested...

Due to the internationalization of food production and distribution, there has been a significant increase of food fraud in recent years. Food fraud can have serious health implications, and occurs when food manufacturers implement unethical practices such as making false label claims as well as using additives and fillers within their products to increase profitability. This has been a serious concern. Meat adulteration was examined using a well-defined proteogenomic annotation, carefully selected surrogate tryptic peptides and high-resolution mass spectrometry...

BACKGROUND: Autoimmunity against insulin-producing beta cells from pancreatic islets is a common phenomenon in type 1 diabetes and latent autoimmune diabetes in adults. Some reports have also related beta-cell autoimmunity to insulin resistance (IR) in type 2 diabetes. However, the extent to which autoimmunity against components of beta cells is present and relates to IR and insulin secretion in nondiabetic adults is uncertain. AIM: To explore the association between antibodies against glutamic acid decarboxylase (GADA), a major antigen from beta cells, and indices of whole-body IR and beta-cell capacity/insulin secretion in adults who do not have diabetes...

The Maillard reaction between hydroxyurea (a primary amine-containing drug) and lactose (used as an excipient) was explored. The adduct of these compounds was synthesized by heating hydroxyurea with lactose monohydrate at 60 °C in borate buffer (pH 9.2) for 12 h. Synthesis of the adduct was confirmed using UV-visible spectroscopy and Fourier transform infrared, differential scanning calorimetry, high-pressure liquid chromatography, and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry studies. An in silico investigation of how the adduct formation affected the interactions of hydroxyurea with its biological target oxyhemoglobin, to which it binds to generate nitric oxide and regulates fetal hemoglobin synthesis, was carried out...
