Pre-operative anaemia is associated with total morbidity burden on days 3 and 5 after cardiac surgery: a cohort study

Background Pre-operative anaemia is associated with mortality and red blood cell (RBC) transfusion requirement after cardiac surgery. However, the effect on post-operative total morbidity burden (TMB) is unknown. We explored the effect of pre-operative anaemia on post-operative TMB. Methods Data were drawn from the Cardiac Post-Operative Morbidity Score (C-POMS) development study ...

Reality Monitoring and Metamemory in Adults with Autism Spectrum Conditions

Studies of reality monitoring (RM) often implicate medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) in distinguishing internal and external information, a region linked to autism-related deficits in social and self-referential information processing, executive function, and memory. This study used two RM conditions (self-other; perceived-imagined) to investigate RM and metamemory in adults with ...

The descriptive epidemiology of accelerometer-measured physical activity in older adults

Background Objectively measured physical activity between older individuals and between populations has been poorly described. We aimed to describe and compare the variation in accelerometry data in older UK (EPIC-Norfolk) and American (NHANES) adults. Methods Physical activity was measured by uniaxial accelerometry in 4,052 UK (49–91 years) and 3459 US older adults (49–85 years). ...

Clinical Utility of a Coronary Heart Disease Risk Prediction Gene Score in UK Healthy Middle Aged Men and in the Pakistani Population

Background Numerous risk prediction algorithms based on conventional risk factors for Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) are available but provide only modest discrimination. The inclusion of genetic information may improve clinical utility. Methods We tested the use of two gene scores (GS) in the prospective second Northwick Park Heart Study (NPHSII) of 2775 healthy UK men (284 cases), ...

You Turn Me Cold: Evidence for Temperature Contagion

Introduction During social interactions, our own physiological responses influence those of others. Synchronization of physiological (and behavioural) responses can facilitate emotional understanding and group coherence through inter-subjectivity. Here we investigate if observing cues indicating a change in another's body temperature results in a corresponding temperature change in ...

Effect of the PPARG2 Pro12Ala Polymorphism on Associations of Physical Activity and Sedentary Time with Markers of Insulin Sensitivity in Those with an Elevated Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

Background Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) is an important regulator of metabolic health and a common polymorphism in the PPAR-γ2 gene (PPARG2) may modify associations between lifestyle behaviour and health. Objective To investigate whether the PPARG2 Pro12Ala genotype modifies the associations of sedentary behaviour and moderate-to-vigorous intensity ...

Osmoregulatory bicarbonate secretion exploits H+-sensitive haemoglobins to autoregulate intestinal O2 delivery in euryhaline teleosts

Marine teleost fish secrete bicarbonate (HCO3 −) into the intestine to aid osmoregulation and limit Ca2+ uptake by carbonate precipitation. Intestinal HCO3 − secretion is associated with an equimolar transport of protons (H+) into the blood, both being proportional to environmental salinity. We hypothesized that the H+-sensitive haemoglobin (Hb) system of seawater teleosts could be ...

The development of the PROMPT (PRescribing Optimally in Middle-aged People�s Treatments) criteria

Background Whilst multimorbidity is more prevalent with increasing age, approximately 30% of middle-aged adults (45�64 years) are also affected. Several prescribing criteria have been developed to optimise medication use in older people (?65�years) with little focus on potentially inappropriate prescribing (PIP) in middle-aged adults. We have developed a set of explicit prescribing ...

Cerebrospinal Fluid Exposure of Efavirenz and Its Major Metabolites When Dosed at 400 mg and 600 mg Once Daily: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Background. The optimal penetration of antiretroviral agents into the central nervous system may be a balance between providing adequate drug exposure to inhibit human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) replication while avoiding concentrations associated with neuronal toxicities. Methods. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) exposure of efavirenz and the metabolites 7-hydroxy (7OH) and 8-hydroxy ...

Interleukin-10 regulates the inflammasome-driven augmentation of inflammatory arthritis and joint destruction

Introduction Activation of the inflammasome has been implicated in the pathology of various autoinflammatory and autoimmune diseases. While the NLRP3 inflammasome has been linked to arthritis progression, little is known about its synovial regulation or contribution to joint histopathology. Regulators of inflammation activation, such as interleukin (IL)-10, may have the potential ...
