Summary of "Minimal-activity PET/CT for efficacy control after SIRT (MAPECSI) - clinical implementation of a resource-saving, liver-focused protocol."

 SIRT is an established treatment option for liver malignancies. Metabolic information can provide additional knowledge about tumoral characteristics and treatment response. FDG-PET/CT was shown to be advantageous for pre-/post-SIRT evaluation. However, whole-body PET/CT is an elaborate procedure. The aim of the study was to optimize clinical efficacy assessment after SIRT with a low-dose, low-cost protocol for focused diagnostic work-up.

Activation of AMPK/SIRT1 axis is required for adiponectin-mediated preconditioning on myocardial ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in rats.

Adiponectin (AD) cardioprotective activities are mediated by AMPK, a fuel-sensing molecule sharing common targets and cellular activities with SIRT-1. Whether AD preconditioning may involve SIRT-1 act...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A statistically significant minimum set of clinical outcomes that demonstrates a clinical benefit of an intervention or treatment.

The adaptation of drug administration to the known variations in biological RHYTHMICITY, such as CIRCADIAN RHYTHMS. The treatment is aimed at supporting normal rhythms, or modifying the timing of therapy to achieve maximal efficacy and minimal adverse effect.

A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.

The adaptation of therapeutic approaches such as pharmacological (DRUG CHRONOTHERAPY), surgical, radiological, or physical to the known variations in biological RHYTHMICITY, such as CIRCADIAN RHYTHMS. The treatment is aimed at supporting normal rhythms, or modifying the timing of therapy to achieve maximal efficacy and minimal adverse effect.

Work that is the report of a pre-planned clinical study of the safety, efficacy, or optimum dosage schedule of one or more diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques in humans selected according to predetermined criteria of eligibility and observed for predefined evidence of favorable and unfavorable effects. While most clinical trials concern humans, this publication type may be used for clinical veterinary articles meeting the requisites for humans. Specific headings for specific types and phases of clinical trials are also available.
