Circulating miRNAs associated with arsenic exposure.

Arsenic (As) is a toxic metalloid. Inorganic arsenic (iAs) is a form of As commonly found in drinking water and in some foods. Overwhelming evidence suggest that people chronically exposed to iAs are at risk of developing cancer, or cardiovascular, neurological and metabolic diseases. Although the mechanisms underlying iAs-associated illness remain poorly characterized, a growing body of literatur...

The use of texture-based radiomics CT analysis to predict outcomes in early-stage non-small cell lung cancer treated with stereotactic ablative radiotherapy.

Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) is being increasingly used as a non-invasive treatment for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A non-invasive method to estimate treatment outcomes in these patients would be valuable, especially since access to tissue specimens is often difficult in these cases.

Impact of glycosylphosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase D on hepatic diacylglycerol accumulation,steatosis,and insulin resistance in diet-induced obesity.

Glycosylphosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase D (GPI-PLD) is an enzyme which specifically cleaves GPI anchors. Previous human studies suggested the relationship of GPI-PLD to insulin resistance, Type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, the biological roles of GPI-PLD have not been elucidated. Here, we hypothesized that GPI-PLD impacted on lipid and g...

Reducing chronic disease through changes in food aid: A microsimulation of nutrition and cardiometabolic disease among Palestinian refugees in the Middle East.

Type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease and have become leading causes of morbidity and mortality among Palestinian refugees in the Middle East, many of whom live in long-term settlements and receive grain-based food aid. The objective of this study was to estimate changes in type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality attributable to a transition from traditiona...

Two-stage motion artefact reduction algorithm for electrocardiogram using weighted adaptive noise cancelling and recursive Hampel filter.

The presence of motion artefacts in ECG signals can cause misleading interpretation of cardiovascular status. Recently, reducing the motion artefact from ECG signal has gained the interest of many researchers. Due to the overlapping nature of the motion artefact with the ECG signal, it is difficult to reduce motion artefact without distorting the original ECG signal. However, the application of an...

Assessing men with erectile dysfunction before and after living donor liver transplantation in real-world practice: Integrating laboratories into clinical settings.

To evaluate the predictive role of the Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) score concerning changes in testosterone levels following living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) and the effects of LDLT on total testosterone and sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) levels, the free androgen index (FAI) and erectile function in LDLT recipients.

Tumor-based gene expression biomarkers to predict survival following curative intent resection for stage I lung adenocarcinoma.

Prognostic biomarkers are needed in clinical setting to predict outcome after resection for early-stage lung adenocarcinoma. The goal of this study is to validate tumor-based single-gene expression biomarkers with demonstrated prognostic value in order to move them along the clinical translation pipeline.

Incidence risk of various types of digestive cancers in patients with pre-dialytic chronic kidney disease: A nationwide population-based cohort study.

Although renal dysfunction is associated with a higher incidence of malignancies, there is no research on the incidence of specific types of digestive cancer in pre-dialytic chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients compared to the general population. This study was conducted on newly diagnosed pre-dialytic CKD patients (n = 35,443) between 2003 and 2013 using the National Health Insurance Service-Nat...

Transparenchymal renal pelvis injection of recombinant AAV9 vectors is a practical approach for gene delivery in the kidney.

Gene therapy has great potential in treating human diseases, but little progress has been made in preclinical and clinical studies of renal diseases. To find an effective gene delivery approach in the kidney, we developed transparenchymal renal pelvis injection. Using AAV9 vectors, we evaluated the gene delivery efficiency and safety of this administration method. The results showed that the exoge...
