TY - JOUR. T1 - CD4+ T cells support glial neuroprotection, slow disease progression, and modify glial morphology in an animal model of inherited ALS. AU - Beers, David R.. AU - Henkel, Jenny S.. AU - Zhao, Weihua. AU - Wang, Jinghong. AU - Appel, Stanley H.. PY - 2008/10/7. Y1 - 2008/10/7. N2 - Neuroinflammation, marked by gliosis and infiltrating T cells, is a prominent pathological feature in diverse models of dominantly inherited neurodegenerative diseases. Recent evidence derived from transgenic mice ubiquitously overexpressing mutant Cu2+/Zn2+ superoxide dismutase (mSOD1), a chronic neurodegenerative model of inherited amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), indicates that glia with either a lack of or reduction in mSOD1 expression enhance motoneuron protection and slow disease progression. However, the contribution of T cells that are present at sites of motoneuron injury in mSOD1 transgenic mice is not known. Here we show that when mSOD1 mice were bred with mice lacking functional T cells ...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects 13.6% of the adult population of the United States, with a projected increase to 16.7% expected by 2030.1,2 Risk factors for progression of CKD include diabetes, albuminuria, and various cardiovascular comorbidities, which provide the targets for current CKD management.3-6 Adverse cardiovascular events and mortality increase with CKD progression.7-11 The associations between decreased estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and risk for major cardiovascular events and death appear independent of concomitant chronic diseases (eg, cardiovascular disease or heart failure).7. Prevalence estimates of CKD, based on cross-sectional analyses,12,13 provide a snapshot with little information about CKD progression over time. Most information on effects of CKD progression on health care costs were also derived from cross-sectional studies. Notwithstanding these limitations, a direct association between progression and cost was demonstrated in Australia, where annual ...

Specific regions of the vascular tree are more susceptible to the development of atherosclerosis than others, and these regions are found to have abundant SMCs in the intima. In vitro mechanistic and in vivo correlative data provide evidence that these phenotypically modulated SMCs participate in functions that can lead to atherogenesis as outlined above. While these data suggest a key role for SMCs in the initiation and early progression of atherosclerosis, mechanistic in vivo data confirming the role of SMCs in these processes are just recently surfacing. These studies have been hindered by the fact that lesions are complex and many SMC functions that would lead to atherosclerosis initiation and progression are redundant with other cell types that participate in early lesion development. More definitive studies involving the depletion of a specific cell type, as has been done with specific inflammatory cell populations to confirm their role in atherosclerosis, are not feasible for SMCs because ...

This axis is devoted to the study of biological and toxicological effects of chemical contaminants in the context of populations considered at risk for the genesis of severe liver disease. Thus, the goal of this axis is to determine if environmental contaminants could play a role in the pathologic progression of steatosis using in vitro and in vivo models. In addition, another population at risk is targeted: alcohol consumers, considering this lifestyle factor as an important and well-known hepatic toxicant.. Membrane remodeling and signaling are studied following treatment with PAHs or phthalates in combination or not with ethanol or dietary lipids. Both in vitro (rodent or human cell lines: hepatocytes, endothelial cells, blood cells) and in vivo models (Zebrafish larvae) are used. A special focus is brought to the impact of pollutant exposure on the disease progression of liver steatosis (ANR CESA STEATOX project). Various factors involved in membrane remodeling (reactive metabolites, ...

Results: Two hundred and fifty three adolescents with pre-endstage CKD were seen during this period. The main primary diseases were glomerulopathies (35.2%) and congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (28.9%). The majority were at CKD Stage 1 (53.3%) or 2 (26.5%) at baseline. Thirteen patients (9.3%) reached the composite outcome. Forty-two patients (30.0%) progressed by at least one CKD stage. Twenty-two of these 42 patients (52.4%) were at milder stages of CKD (Stage 1 or 2) at baseline. In univariate analysis, significant predictors of progression to the composite endpoint included CKD Stage 3 or 4 at entry (p=0.02), severe proteinuria (p=0.018), short stature (p=0.047), anaemia (p=0.07), hypoalbuminemia (p,0.005) and hyperphosphatemia (p,0.005). In the multivariate model, CKD Stage 3 or 4 (OR 5.11, 95% CI 1.15-22.60; p=0.032) and severe proteinuria (OR 9.19, 95% CI 1.26-67.16; p=0.029) were independent predictors ...
Objective. To assess clinical progression and inflammatory markers among women stopping or continuing antiretroviral therapy (ART) after pregnancy. Methods. ART-naïve women with CD4+ lymphocyte counts ,350 cells/uL initiating ART during pregnancy had clinical events and laboratory markers compared over one year postpartum between those stopping (n = 59) or continuing (n = 147) ART. Results. Slopes in CD4 count and HIV RNA did not differ between groups overall and in subsets of ZDV or combination therapy. The hazard ratio (HR) of a new class B event was 2.09 (95% CI 0.79-5.58) among women stopping ART, 1.24 (0.31-4.95) in those stopping ZDV, and 2.93 (0.64-13.36) among those stopping combination therapy. Women stopping ART had increased immune activation. No significant differences were seen in C-reactive protein, lipids, leptin, or interleukin-6. Conclusions. While changes in CD4 and HIV RNA levels over one year were similar between women stopping or continuing ART postpartum, higher immune ...
Drug-eluting stents (DES) implantation has been demonstrated to dramatically reduce restenosis and repeat revascularisation (RR) in diabetic patients. However, diabetic patients are prone to an accelerated atherosclerotic process and the impact of atherosclerotic disease progression (ADP) on RR and mid-term clinical outcome after DES implantation is not well known To determine whether RR in diabetic patients treated with prior DES is the result of either DES restenosis or native progression of atherosclerotic disease in the coronary vasculature, and to evaluate the impact of ADP on the mid-term clinical outcome. We followed 316 consecutive diabetic patients (227 men, age 69 ± 9 years) treated between June 2005 and September 2006 with at least one DES. Of these patients, 260 (82%) had a multivessel coronary disease, 148 (41%) had previous coronary revascularisation and 104 (32%) had insulin-dependent diabetes. During the follow-up (mean 590 ± 194 days) the cumulative incidence of major adverse ...
Author Summary In recent decades, our understanding of Alzheimers disease (AD) has increased; however, some basic questions still remain unresolved. One of them is: how homogeneous is AD? Is the course of progression more or less the same for most patients, or are there large variations? Our paper studies a large cohort of AD patients which comes from a 23-year-long study, and performs a statistical analysis of progression speed. We quantify the amount of spread in GDS/FAST stage durations (a staging system widely used by clinicians). We arrive at an astonishing conclusion that the mean length of AD stages is comparable with their standard deviation! This means that individual courses of AD progression may differ very much from each other, and from the textbook mean values. This has implications both for clinical trials (how do we assess if a new drug is effective, if the amount of natural spread is so large in untreated patients?), and for our understanding of this disease, which appears to be
The investigators propose to conduct a retrospective study of single agent ceritinib in patients with previously untreated anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)
An interesting paper in Anaesthesiology, (and yes, I know its not top of everyones reading list), looks at the influence of the mu opiod receptor (MOR) on cancer progression. While you may not have heard of the MOR, you will have heard of the drugs that target this receptor: morphine, fentanyl, heroin and other opiates. These are among the most widely used of pain-relief drugs in current medical practice. In particular these drugs are widely prescribed for cancer patients, either when undergoing surgery or when they are suffering from pain. The question of whether these drugs have an effect on cancer progression is one that is directly relevant to cancer patients here and now. While it has been known for some time that opiate drugs possibly have some indirect effects on disease progression because of the depressive effect on the immune system, the authors of this paper take things a step further and ask whether there is also a direct pro-tumour effect induced by these opiates ...
In the UK, our center and others screen for KRAS routinely-but without any purpose really. Id like to think that, based on this evidence, this will be a new stratified treatment option for us, Dr. Fennell added.. About CodeBreak 100. The global open-label phase I/II CodeBreak 100 trial evaluated sotorasib administered orally at 960 mg/d to 126 patients with advanced NSCLC and a centrally confirmed KRAS p.G12C mutation. Patients had experienced disease progression after up to three lines of therapy, including platinum-based chemotherapy and/or agents targeting PD-1/PD-L1. More than 80% of patients had experienced disease progression on both chemotherapy and PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors.. The primary endpoint was objective response by blinded independent central radiology review. Patients were followed for a median of 12.2 months.. Key Outcomes and Toxicity. Of 124 evaluable patients, 46 patients (37.1%) had a confirmed response, including 3 patients with a complete response; disease control was ...

The value of HIV-RNA quantification as a prognostic marker has long been established [6, 51, 52]. An approximately inverse relationship to the CD4+ T-cell count and survival time has been observed in around 80% of patients [53, 54]. Higher HIV-RNA levels are associated with more rapid decline of CD4+ T-cells, assisting prediction of the rate of CD4 count decline and disease progression. However, once the CD4 count is very low (,50-100 cells/mm3), the disease progression risk is so great that HIV-RNA levels add little prognostic information [25, 54-56]. The correlation between CD4 count and disease progression seen clearly in Table 1 has already been described [10]. Further highlighting the risk of AIDS in those with CD4 counts of 200-350 cell/mm3 (the current threshold for ART initiation), a four-fold risk increase can be seen between those with a HIV-RNA of 3000 copies/mL and those with ≥300 000 copies/mL, even within the same age bracket. Additionally, there is a considerable increase in ...
The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine is one of 18 official study sites for the Parkinsons Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI), a landmark observational clinical study sponsored by The Michael J. Fox Foundation, which will use a combination of advanced imaging, biologics sampling and behavioral assessments to identify biomarkers of Parkinsons disease (PD) progression. Enrollment of 20 patients and 10 controls is expected to continue for approximately two years.
A family history of prostate cancer was not a major determinant of disease progression during active surveillance, according to a systematic review.
DESIGN/METHODS:We evaluated 369 drug-naïve ePD patients. Data were obtained from the Parkinson?s Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI) database. CSF amyloid-beta levels were transformed using a previously reported linear regression procedure. A cutoff of >198 pg/mL was used to define amyloid-negative (PD-) and amyloid-positive (PD+) subgroups. Grey matter (GM) density from MRI was measured using ANTs. We compared groups using linear regressions ...

In the MESA, persons with MetS or DM have a greater incidence and progression of CAC than those subjects without MetS, and those with MetS (without DM) have an intermediate incidence and progression. Also, insulin resistance (23) and DM (24,25) have been shown in smaller or selected cohorts to relate to progression of CAC, and in those with DM, a glycated hemoglobin ≥7% predicted progression of CAC (26). Progression of CAC has also been shown to predict total mortality over baseline risk factors and CAC (13). In our study, we also found increased progression of CAC in persons with MetS and DM to predict future CHD events.. The baseline calcium score, a strong predictor of CAC progression, is important to understanding the relationship of MetS and DM to progression of CAC (23,27). Because MetS is associated with an intermediate level and DM the highest level of CAC, we might expect a similar pattern for progression. Whereas baseline CAC could be considered a confounder, it can also be ...

Horses - The New Other White Meat?. Ive never understood the U.S. prohibition on slaughtering horses for human consumption. As an observant Jew, horses arent kosher. So, Id never eat them even if I could. Still, while the thought of eating horses disgusts me-I love horseback riding and, because of that, have an affinity for the animal-why are horses any more special than any other animal we slaughter and eat?. Is horsemeat any less healthy than a steak or chicken? Not being a nutritionist or dietitian, I have no idea. Id never eat dog or cat or snake (and none of those are kosher, so even if I wanted to, my religion prohibits it). But if you believe-as I do-that animals are here to serve man, that we can ride them, eat them, and use them for leather, fur, and feathers, then why are horses any more sacred than other living beings to which we do these things and gain these materials for our use?. They arent . . . unless youre a PETA (or as I call it, PUTAh-People for the Unethical ...
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are assigned to 1 of 2 groups according to timing of disease progression while enrolled on protocol FAV-ID-06 (disease progression after prior rituximab AND never randomized vs disease progression after randomization to placebo arm).. Patients receive autologous immunoglobulin idiotype-KLH vaccine subcutaneously (SC) on day 1. Patients also receive sargramostim (GM-CSF) SC on days 1-4. Treatment repeats monthly for 6 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with stable or responding disease may receive additional treatment as above every 2 months for 1 year (6 treatments) and every 3 months until disease progression.. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed for 30 days or until the start of subsequent treatment.. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 238 patients (67 in group I and 171 in group II) will be accrued for this study.. ...

The identification of clinical risk factors for AIDS in patients with preserved immune function is of significant interest. We examined whether patients with fungal infection (FI) and CD4 cell count ,/=200/microl were at higher risk of disease progression in the era of cART. 11,009 EuroSIDA patients were followed from their first CD4 cell count ,/=200/microl after 1 January 1997 until progression to any non-azoles/amphotericin B susceptible (AAS) AIDS disease, last visit or death. Initiation of antimycotic therapy (AMT) was used as a marker of FI and was modelled as a time-updated covariate using Poisson regression. After adjustment for current CD4 cell count, HIV-RNA, starting cART and diagnosis of AAS-AIDS, AMT was significantly associated with an increased incidence of non-AAS-AIDS (IRR=1.55, 95% CI 1.17-2.06, p=0.0024). Despite low incidence of AIDS in the cART era, FI in patients with a CD4 cell count ,/=200/microl is associated with a 55% higher risk of non-AAS-AIDS (95% confidence ...

For Plato, governments seem to have a natural progression. A just city will begin by establishing an aristocracy to guide itself toward the good. As those leaders lose sight of the good, focusing on their own power and desires, the aristocracy will rot into a timocracy, an oligarchy, and so on. It is almost inevitable that this occur. Once a tyranny is established, the next step is back to an aristocracy or otherwise just form of government. This can only occur when one who has experienced the good is willing to return to the cave as it were (an analogy Plato uses in Book VII) and direct the city. An instance of this occuring will be discussed. This progression can be applied to the process all energy on Earth goes through. It is all derived from the nuclear fusion occuring on the sun that makes it into our atmosphere. As energy is used and changed, it is transferred into different forms that are not as easily utilized. One could say that it is being corrupted. As energy is transferred throuugh ...

Abstract: The development of statistical approaches for the joint modelling of the temporal changes of imaging, biochemical, and clinical biomarkers is of paramount importance for improving the understanding of neurodegenerative disorders, and for providing a reference for the prediction and quantification of the pathology in unseen individuals. Nonetheless, the use of disease progression models for probabilistic predictions still requires investigation, for example for accounting for missing observations in clinical data, and for accurate uncertainty quantification. We tackle this problem by proposing a novel Gaussian process-based method for the joint modeling of imaging and clinical biomarker progressions from time series of individual observations. The model is formulated to account for individual random effects and time reparameterization, allowing non-parametric estimates of the biomarker evolution, as well as high flexibility in specifying correlation structure, and time transformation ...
