Profile of neurohumoral agents on mesenteric and intestinal blood flow in health and disease. (1/1766)

The mesenteric and intestinal blood flow is organized and regulated to support normal intestinal function, and the regulation of blood flow is, in part, determined by intestinal function itself. In the process of the development and adaptation of the intestinal mucosa for the support of the digestive processes and host defense mechanisms, and the muscle layers for propulsion of foodstuffs, a specialized microvascular architecture has evolved in each tissue layer. Compromised mesenteric and intestinal blood flow, which can be common in the elderly, may lead to devastating clinical consequences. This problem, which can be caused by vasospasm at the microvascular level, can cause intestinal ischaemia to any of the layers of the intestinal wall, and can initiate pathological events which promote significant clinical consequences such as diarrhea, abdominal angina and intestinal infarction. The objective of this review is to provide the reader with some general concepts of the mechanisms by which neurohumoral vasoactive substances influence mesenteric and intestinal arterial blood flow in health and disease with focus on transmural transport processes (absorption and secretion). The complex regulatory mechanisms of extrinsic (sympathetic-parasympathetic and endocrine) and intrinsic (enteric nervous system and humoral endocrine) components are presented. More extensive reviews of platelet function, atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, the carcinoid syndrome, 5-hydroxytryptamine and nitric oxide regulation of vascular tone are presented in this context. The possible options of pharmacological intervention (e.g. vasodilator agonists and vasoconstrictor antagonists) used for the treatment of abnormal mesenteric and intestinal vascular states are also discussed.  (+info)

An innovative approach to reducing medical care utilization and expenditures. (3/1766)

In a retrospective study, we assessed the impact on medical utilization and expenditures of a multicomponent prevention program, the Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health (MVAH). We compared archival data from Blue Cross/Blue Shield Iowa for MVAH (n = 693) with statewide norms for 1985 through 1995 (n = 600,000) and with a demographically matched control group (n = 4,148) for 1990, 1991, 1994, and 1995. We found that the 4-year total medical expenditures per person in the MVAH group were 59% and 57% lower than those in the norm and control groups, respectively; the 11-year mean was 63% lower than the norm. The MVAH group had lower utilization and expenditures across all age groups and for all disease categories. Hospital admission rates in the control group were 11.4 times higher than those in the MVAH group for cardiovascular disease, 3.3 times higher for cancer, and 6.7 times higher for mental health and substance abuse. The greatest savings were seen among MVAH patients older than age 45, who had 88% fewer total patients days compared with control patients. Our results confirm previous research supporting the effectiveness of MVAH for preventing disease. Our evaluation suggests that MVAH can be safely used as a cost-effective treatment regimen in the managed care setting.  (+info)

Improving clinician acceptance and use of computerized documentation of coded diagnosis. (4/1766)

After the Northwest Division of Kaiser Permanente implemented EpicCare, a comprehensive electronic medical record, clinicians were required to directly document orders and diagnoses on this computerized system, a task they found difficult and time consuming. We analyzed the sources of this problem to improve the process and increase its acceptance by clinicians. One problem was the use of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9) as our coding scheme, even though ICD-9 is not a complete nomenclature of diseases and using it as such creates difficulties. In addition, the synonym list we used had some inaccurate associations, contributing to clinician frustration. Furthermore, the initial software program contained no adequate mechanism for adding qualifying comments or preferred terminology. We sought to address all these issues. Strategies included adjusting the available coding choices and descriptions and modifying the medical record software. In addition, the software vendor developed a utility that allows clinicians to replace the ICD-9 description with their own preferred terminology while preserving the ICD-9 code. We present an evaluation of this utility.  (+info)

Referrals by general internists and internal medicine trainees in an academic medicine practice. (5/1766)

Patient referral from generalists to specialists is a critical clinic care process that has received relatively little scrutiny, especially in academic settings. This study describes the frequency with which patients enrolled in a prepaid health plan were referred to specialists by general internal medicine faculty members, general internal medicine track residents, and other internal medicine residents; the types of clinicians they were referred to; and the types of diagnoses with which they presented to their primary care physicians. Requested referrals for all 2,113 enrolled prepaid health plan patients during a 1-year period (1992-1993) were identified by computer search of the practice's administrative database. The plan was a full-risk contract without carve-out benefits. We assessed the referral request rate for the practice and the mean referral rate per physician. We also determined the percentage of patients with diagnoses based on the International Classification of Diseases, 9th revision, who were referred to specialists. The practice's referral request rate per 100 patient office visits for all referral types was 19.8. Primary care track residents referred at a higher rate than did nonprimary care track residents (mean 23.7 vs. 12.1; P < .001). The highest referral rate (2.0/100 visits) was to dermatology. Almost as many (1.7/100 visits) referrals were to other "expert" generalists within the practice. The condition most frequently associated with referral to a specialist was depression (42%). Most referrals were associated with common ambulatory care diagnoses that are often considered to be within the scope of generalist practice. To improve medical education about referrals, a better understanding of when and why faculty and trainees refer and don't refer is needed, so that better models for appropriate referral can be developed.  (+info)

Formulary limitations and the elderly: results from the Managed Care Outcomes Project. (6/1766)

OBJECTIVE: To examine whether restrictive formularies are associated with differences in healthcare resource utilization, including number of office visits, prescriptions, and hospitalizations, and whether this association varies by age. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional, longitudinal study. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients enrolled in one of six health maintenance organizations in six different states, three in the eastern and three in the western United States, were eligible for the study. Data from between 1309 and 3938 patients were available for analysis for each of the five diseases studied, for a total of 12,997 patients across all study diseases. Healthcare utilization by patients in the study included more than 99,000 office visits, 1000 hospitalizations, and 240,000 prescriptions. We used severity-adjusted prescription counts, prescription costs, office visit counts, and measures of inpatient hospital utilization to assess the effects of formulary limitations. RESULTS: We found positive, significant associations between the independent variable formulary limitations in drug class and the dependent variables measuring resource utilization. These associations were sometimes significantly greater for elderly patients after controlling for severity of illness and other variables. CONCLUSIONS: Common strategies for decreasing drug expenditures may be associated with higher severity-adjusted resource utilization. In specific areas, this association is more pronounced in the elderly.  (+info)

Environmental pathology: new directions and opportunities. (7/1766)

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) supports a number of training programs for predoctoral and postdoctoral (D.V.M., M.D., Ph.D.) fellows in toxicology, epidemiology and biostatistics, and environmental pathology. At the Experimental Biology meeting in April 1997, the American Society of Investigative Pathology (ASIP) sponsored a workshop including directors, trainees, and other interested scientists from several environmental pathology programs in medical and veterinary colleges. This workshop and a related session on "Novel Cell Imaging Techniques for Detection of Cell Injury" revealed advances in molecular and cell imaging approaches as reviewed below that have a wide applicability to toxicologic pathology.  (+info)

History of medicine and concepts of health. (8/1766)

It was not until the exemplary social reform of the 19th century and the introduction of modern health insurance schemes that people started to consider health as some kind of basic right which could be ensured by insurance and doctors, rather than by individual responsibility. The recent explosion of health system costs in countries like Germany has given rise to an unprecedented situation whereby the limited capacities of insurance systems and state organizations are becoming more and more evident. Health economists are now questioning the feasibility of optimal medical treatment for everybody. One consequence of this situation is that people are being forced to recall the old virtue of individual responsibility for one's own physical and mental well-being. This article examines the nature of health from a historical point of view. The point is made that health is not the same thing as a life free from complaints, although this erroneous belief is wide-spread today. Galen himself identified a neutral physical state between health and illness (neutralitas), that could be observed in many people who could not be described as being either healthy or ill. It is necessary to accept this state as part of the natural fate of humankind and to understand that individual responsibility and the demands on society and insurance companies for well-being or absolute freedom from ailments are not one and the same thing.  (+info)

A human disease network is a network of human disorders and diseases with reference to their genetic origins or other features. More specifically, it is the map of human disease associations referring mostly to disease genes. For example, in a human disease network, two diseases are linked if they share at least one associated gene. A typical human disease network usually derives from bipartite networks which consist of both diseases and genes information. Additionally, some human disease networks use other features such as symptoms and proteins to associate diseases. In 2007, Goh et al. constructed a disease-gene bipartite graph using information from OMIM database and termed human disease network. In 2009, Barrenas et al. derived complex disease-gene network using GWAs (Genome Wide Association studies). In the same year, Hidalgo et al. published a novel way of building human phenotypic disease networks in which diseases were connected according to their calculated distance. In 2011, Cusick et ...
Human genome sequencing and new biological data generation techniques have provided an opportunity to uncover mechanisms in human disease. Using gene-disease data, recent research has increasingly shown that many seemingly dissimilar diseases have similar/common molecular mechanisms. Understanding similarity between diseases aids in early disease diagnosis and development of new drugs. The growing collection of gene-function and gene-disease data has instituted a need for formal knowledge representation in order to extract information. Ontologies have been successfully applied to represent such knowledge, and data mining techniques have been applied on them to extract information. Informatics methods can be used with ontologies to find similarity between diseases which can yield insight into how they are caused. This can lead to therapies which can actually cure diseases rather than merely treating symptoms. Estimating disease similarity solely on the basis of shared genes can be misleading as ...

When exploring whether disease genes encode hubs, we, and authors of other earlier studies (27-29), ignored the fact that some human genes are essential in early development and functional changes in these contribute to the high rate of first-trimester spontaneous abortions, which might be as much as 20% of recognized pregnancies. One strategy to explore the impact of this in utero essential segment of human disease is to consider human orthologs of mouse genes that result in embryonic or postnatal lethality when disrupted by homologous recombination (Mouse Genome Informatics; www.informatics.jax.org). All together, we find 1,267 such mouse lethal orthologs of human genes, of which 398 are associated with human diseases, representing 22% of all known human disease genes. This allows us to distinguish between two classes of human genes: 1,267 essential genes and 1,379 nonessential disease genes, the latter obtained by removing from the full list of 1,777 OMIM disease genes the 398 that are ...

Human gene mutations resulting in specific disease phenotypes were first reported in the scientific literature over 50 years ago [1, 2]. Since then, protein and nucleotide sequence changes associated with human disease have accumulated at a rapid rate. A large body of literature has appeared on human disease-associated mutations, normal sequence variation, and alterations that acquire pathological significance when combined with other deleterious alleles or second-site mutations. With this information compiled into organized databases [3, 4], it is now possible to conduct large-scale, comprehensive analyses of human disease genes. Such studies acquire additional discriminatory power with the availability of multiple genome sequences from model organisms, as comparative studies can provide novel evolutionary insights into the selective relevance of genetic changes. In the present study, we have used a collection of nearly 1,200 human disease gene sequences to perform a large-scale analysis of ...

Despite considerable progress in understanding the molecular origins of hereditary human diseases, the molecular basis of several thousand genetic diseases still remains unknown. High-throughput phenotype studies are underway to systematically assess the phenotype outcome of targeted mutations in model organisms. Thus, comparing the similarity between experimentally identified phenotypes and the phenotypes associated with human diseases can be used to suggest causal genes underlying a disease. In this manuscript, we present a method for disease gene prioritization based on comparing phenotypes of mouse models with those of human diseases. For this purpose, either human disease phenotypes are

GWAS and more recently whole-exome/genome sequencing have generated a massive expansion in the number of candidate disease genes. Animal models will have an essential role in validating candidate genes and understanding their role in pathobiology. Advances in targeted genome engineering with TALENs and CRISPRs now makes it feasible for individual laboratories to generate heritable and precise sequence modifications of their gene of interest in any organism. Zebrafish are an attractive model system because they share the vast majority of human disease genes. Genome editing tools such as CRISPR-Cas9 and TALENs permit heritable and precise sequence modification of the genome. In this session I will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the new genome editing tools and compare these methods to existing gene knock-down approaches. I will provide a brief overview of how we are applying these exciting genome editing tools to generate more informative models of human disease.. ...

VANCOUVER, Oct. 18, 2013- $5 million investment in the Canadian Children Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Network: a joint partnership of CIHR and the CH.I.L.D Foundation.
Environmental exposures are thought to play a role in the development of many common diseases, such as asthma and cancer, but how these exposures lead to disease is often unclear. Traditionally, the critical data needed to understand these environment-disease associations better have been scattered throughout the scientific literature, requiring researchers to comb through numerous publications to gain insight on how a chemical exposure may contribute to disease. To facilitate and expedite this process for the environmental health research community, Carolyn Mattingly, Ph.D., and her team have been working for over a decade to develop and expand the Comparative Toxicogenomics Database (CTD), a centralized, publicly available resource that systematically integrates the data needed to make connections between chemical mechanisms of action and potential impacts on human health.. A lot of emerging evidence suggests that environmental exposures lead to disease, but in many cases the research ...

Many factors may contribute to the variation in the estimate of odds ratio across such studies, such as the genetic make-up of the population studied, the type of patients included, the selection of controls, the quality of the study design, and the quality of the laboratory work. These factors could lead to either over- or under-estimation of the true odds ratio. However, it is difficult to conceive that any single factor, or combination of these factors, could consistently cause the exaggerated odds ratio in Chinese studies in all the topics (gene-disease associations) examined by Pan and colleagues. Selective publication is therefore a very likely and worrying explanation for their findings ...

Dogs get very similar diseases to humans, said Kerstin Lindblad-Toh of Institute of Medical Biochemistry and Microbiology, Uppsala University in Sweden and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Cambridge, Massachusetts. If you ask a dog owner what sort of conditions their pets get, they will say cancer, allergies, eye diseases. Lindblad-Toh was speaking at the European Science Foundations 3rd Functional Genomics Conference, held in Innsbruck, Austria, on 1-4 October. Functional genomics describes the way in which genes and their products, proteins, interact together in complex networks in living cells. If these interactions are abnormal, diseases can result. The Innsbruck meeting brought together more than 450 scientists from across Europe to discuss recent advances in the role of functional genomics in disease. Many canine diseases could share the same genetic basis in humans and dogs, Lindblad-Toh told the conference, and because dogs have been bred into clear isolated populations - the ...
Once every two weeks, community interviewers, usually traveling by bicycle, visit the families. During the first year of the study, researchers visited 1,500 households. They collected data on humans such as fever, diarrhea, and respiratory illnesses and similar disease data for animals. For animals, researchers also recorded reproductive illnesses, nervous system illnesses, mastitis, and death. And they collected socioeconomic data for the families including age of family members, household income, and number of children. If an animal gets sick, the families can call the toll free number and a veterinarian will come out within 24 hours so the family doesnt have to wait until the next scheduled visit.. One of the big things is that we have been able to simultaneously monitor health in people and the animals they live with, said Mwangi. This is not the standard approach in the surveillance of infectious diseases ...
This project found that the canine version of two candidate genes known to be responsible for similar diseases in humans do not appear to be responsible for Craniomandibular Osteopathy (CMO) in Terriers. CMO is a painful, non-cancerous proliferation of the bone, primarily around the jaw, that lasts for a year, starting at the age of six weeks to six months. After ruling out the candidate genes, researchers started to scan the entire canine genome, looking for the causative gene for the disease. So far they have examined about 30 percent of the genome and have yet to find the gene, though the research continues. As part of this study, researchers discovered an improved approach to whole genome scans that will benefit all genetic researchers.
Each year in the U.K., about 2 percent of horses die from grass sickness. No one knows what causes the disease, but it does occur almost exclusively in grass-fed animals, including ponies and donkeys. A similar disease is thought to afflict dogs, cats, rabbits, hares, llamas and possibly sheep. Researchers recently reported their analysis of tissue samples taken from horses stricken with the disease in the journal Molecular & Cellular Proteomics. In their attempt to understand what happens at the molecular level of equine grass sickness, the researchers found misfolded and dysregulated proteins in the tissues that resembled those found in human neurodegenerative conditions, such as Alzheimers disease, Parkinsons disease and Huntingtons disease.. ...
Last Edited: MM:EditDate:MM For Mitomap to assign a status of Cfrm to a possibly pathogenic variant, we look for confirming reports which address the criteria outlined in Mitchell et al 2006, Yarham et al 2011, Wong 2007, and Gonzalez-Viogue et al 2014. These criteria include the following: (1) independent reports of two or more unrelated families with evidence of similar disease; (2) evolutionary conservation of the nucleotide (for RNA variants) or amino acid (for coding variants); (3) presence of heteroplasmy; (4) correlation of variant with phenotype / segregation of the mutation with the disease within a family; (5) biochemical defects in complexes I, III, or IV in affected or multiple tissues; (6) functional studies showing differential defects segregating with the mutation (cybrid or single fiber studies); (7) histochemical evidence of a mitochondrial disorder; and (8) for fatal or severe phenotypes, the absence or extremely rare occurrence of the variant in large mtDNA sequence ...
Today scientists reported exciting new developments suggesting that cord blood may well hold the answer for people with leukemia requiring bone marrow transplants and quite possibly also for those suffering from other similar diseases. The BBC website carried the story of Natalie Salama-Levy who is unable to donate cord blood from her baby due at the Royal Free Hospital in London next month because the hospital lacks the facilities to collect and store it. Ironically Natalies husband Lionel is the chair of The cord blood charity and was inspired to become involved following the death of a close friend from leukaemia ...

Several classifications pertaining to heart disease are in use: The classes are assessed in various ways, for instance, by physical examination (Killip), hemodynamic measurement (Forrester), and patient history (NYHA). The detailed meanings of each class are beyond the scope of this book, but several style points may be noted: ▪ Severity increases from lower to higher numbers and letters. ▪ There is no automatic correspondence between classes (eg, Killip class I is not equivalent to NYHA class I). ▪ The numerals are designators and are not quantitative or semiquantitative. Therefore, roman numerals are appropriate. ▪ Authors should describe their classification

The diagnosis of comorbidities, which refers to the coexistence of different acute and chronic diseases, is difficult due to the modern extreme specialisation of physicians. We envisage that a software dedicated to comorbidity diagnosis could result in an effective aid to the health practice. We have developed an R software comoR to compute novel estimators of the disease comorbidity associations. Starting from an initial diagnosis, genetic and clinical data of a patient the software identifies the risk of disease comorbidity. Then it provides a pipeline with different causal inference packages (e.g. pcalg, qtlnet etc) to predict the causal relationship of diseases. It also provides a pipeline with network regression and survival analysis tools (e.g. Net-Cox, rbsurv etc) to predict more accurate survival probability of patients. The input of this software is the initial diagnosis for a patient and the output provides evidences of disease comorbidity mapping. The functions of the comoR offer flexibility
