Effect of BCAA Supplementation on Muscle Mass, Muscle Quality and Molecular Markers of Muscle Regeneration in CLD Patients

Loss of muscle mass (sarcopenia) is a major complication in a patient with cirrhosis, impacting the disease outcome, quality of life and survival. Cirrhotics lose muscle mass (MM) while waiting for liver transplant (LT) and even after LT, impacting the outcome of LT. Moreover, LT is elusive for majority of patients in India. The pathophysiology of muscle loss is complicated, multifactorial, interlinked and primarily nutrition driven, which gives clues for targeted therapeutic m...

Retinopathy can lead to visual impairment and blindness, but early detection through regular retinal screening can help to prevent this. Many Ontarians with diabetes have not been receiving regular screening. One possible way to get more people screened for retinopathy involves tele-retinal screening using teleophthalmology (TOP), where patients can have their eyes screened in ...

The Effect of Pregnancy and Labour on the Pelvic Floor Diagnosed With 3D and 4D Ultrasound

Injuries to the pelvic floor muscles and fascias during delivery and childbirth may lead to urinary incontinence (25-45 %), faecal incontinence (11-45%), pelvic organ prolapse (7-23%), sexual dysfunction (15-33 %) and chronic pain syndromes (4-15%). Pelvic floor muscle injuries are not easy to diagnose as they are not visible when looking at surface anatomy during a standard gynaecological examination. The investigators are therefore in urgent need of better tools to diagnose ...
