Weight gain is the cornerstone of treatment for patients with anorexia nervosa. However, restoring weight by refeeding patients can lead to the refeeding syndrome, which is potentially fatal. A retrospective study of adolescents hospitalized for anor
Refeeding syndrome is a lifethreatening bouquet of electrolyte abnormalities which results from the sudden reacquaintance of a starving individual with some food. Because intensivists refeed malnourished patients so frequently, the college examiners have a distinct fascination with this syndrome, and it appears frequently among the past papers. Usually, the trainees are expected to identify the syndrome from the characteritic combination of low electrolyte values (potassium, phosphate, sodium and magnesium are all decreased). Then, they are usually asked about the complications of these abnormalities, or which groups are at greatest risk of this syndrome.
Refeeding Syndrome = a group of clinical findings that occur in severely malnourished individuals undergoing nutritional support.

Afinitor belongs to a class of drugs called kinase inhibitors, which interfere with cell communication, preventing tumor growth, the FDA said. While Sutent and Nexavar are multiple kinase inhibitors that act on a number of cellular targets, Afinitor works by blocking a specific protein known as the mammalian target of rapamycin. The protein blocking action disrupts the growth, division and metabolism of cancer cells.. Afinitor is manufactured by Novartis International AG of Basel, Switzerland.. ...
In 2015, the standard treatment for most patients with advanced kidney cancer was a vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) such as sunitinib or pazopanib for untreated patients, followed by a checkpoint inhibitor (PD-1 inhibitor) such as nivolumab for patients who fail treatment with a VEGF inhibitor. However, over the last several years, there has been a raft of clinical trials showing that if you combine VEGF inhibitors with PD-1 inhibitors, you can get better outcomes than with a VEGF inhibitor alone.. This paper discusses how the standard of care for untreated patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has shifted from a VEGF TKI alone to a combination of checkpoint inhibitor plus either a VEGF TKI or a CTLA-4 inhibitor..

Information on comorbid conditions is essential in routine clinical practice and also for research purposes. We have designed a simple, self-report questionnaire to obtain comorbidity data in patients with advanced kidney failure, receiving treatment by dialysis. The questionnaire-derived comorbidity score - the CSCS - was significantly predictive of short-term survival in this patient group and may have clinical utility.. We found almost perfect or substantial levels of agreement between the prevalence of self-reported diabetes, heart disease and cancer and the prevalence of these conditions derived from the detailed examination of the patients medical records. The level of agreement for liver disease was moderate. For arthritis, lung disease, cerebrovascular disease and depression the levels of agreement were only fair. Whilst lung disease and cerebrovascular disease were under-reported by patients, arthritis and depression were reported more frequently compared to the medical records. There ...

By JANE KIRBY PATIENTS with advanced kidney cancer will be denied four treatments on the NHS under new guidelines published yesterday. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (Nice) issued draft guidance rejecting the drugs Sutent (sunitinib), Avastin (bevacizumab), Nexavar (sorafenib) and Torisel (temsirolimus). Primary care trusts in Merseyside and Cheshire had already agreed to start offering Sutent on the NHS, as reported by the Daily Post in December last year. But this decision is now likely to be subject to review. Charities expressed outrage at Nices decision, saying it left patients only one treatment option - interferon - to which many do not respond. Professor John Wagstaff, from the South Wales Cancer Institute, said there was "no point" in him accepting referrals for people with advanced kidney cancer, as around 75% of them "do not gain any real benefit" from interferon. Broadcaster James Whale, who lost a kidney to cancer in 2000, said the guidance would "mean an ...
Recently U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved INLYTA(R) axitinib, a kinase inhibitor, for the treatment of patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) who have not responded to another drug for this type of cancer.. Renal cell carcinoma is a type of kidney cancer that starts in the lining of very small tubes in the kidney. Inlyta works by blocking certain proteins called kinases that play a role in tumor growth and cancer progression. Inlyta is a pill that patients take twice a day.. Recently, approved drugs for the treatment of kidney cancer include sorafenib (2005), sunitinib (2006), temsirolimus (2007), everolimus (2009), bevacizumab (2009) and pazopanib (2009), which have improved the outlook for RCC (progression-free survival), although they have not yet demonstrated improved survival. The safety and effectiveness of Inlyta was evaluated in a single randomized, open-label, multi-center clinical study of 723 patients whose disease had progressed on or after treatment with one ...

Figure 4. A, Mechanism of impaired glucose oxidation and enhanced glycolysis in right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH). In RVH, activation of various transcription factors, including forkhead box protein O1 (FOXO1), cMyc, and hypoxia-inducible factor 1 α(HIF-1α), upregulates expression of many glycolytic gene. A common finding in RVH is increased pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase (PDK) expression, which inhibits PDH and reduces mitochondrial respiration. PDK activation also occurs in the lung in PAH, although the transcriptional regulation and isoform specificity may differ than those seen in the RV. Dichloroacetate inhibits PDK and thereby promotes glucose oxidation and inhibits glycolysis. Reprinted from Piao et al53 with permission of the publisher. B, The Randle cycle in RVH. The inhibition of β-fatty acid oxidation (FAO) by trimetazidine and ranolazine increases PDH activity and improves glucose oxidation (GO).

Randle began his study of UFOs while still a high school student. In 1972 he published his first article about UFOs in Sagas Annual UFO Report. Throughout the 1970s, he published a number of articles concerning a variety of UFO sightings including tales of alien abduction, photographic cases, and those involving some sort of physical evidence. In 1975 he was asked by Jim Lorenzen to investigate the wave of cattle mutilations that were sweeping the Midwest and west. Randles writing is not limited to the UFO field. He is the author of more than 100 books including action-adventure, mysteries, and science fiction. He has also written more than two hundred magazine articles including his exploration of Iowas Coldwater Cave and accounts of the war in Vietnam.

Patients with advanced kidney disease are much more likely to die of a heart attack compared to healthy people. This is partly due to this group of people being more likely to have, for example, high blood pressure and diabetes, known risk factors for developing heart disease. However, more importantly, it is also due to other non-traditional risk factors often seen in kidney patients, such as oxidative stress (damage to the body cells due to free radicals), inflammation and poor nutrition. Most patients with end stage chronic kidney disease (CKD) die from heart disease. Having end stage CKD directly affects heart muscle (the myocardium) and causes changes to happen in the tiny blood vessels (micro-circulation) of the heart. Although the link between end stage CKD and heart disease is well known, what isn t established is how earlier stage CKD may have on the circulation and muscle of the heart. If we knew more, we might be able to take steps to stop this damage from happening. Also, although ...

Researchers from The George Institute for Global Health have been awarded $5.5 million by the National Health and Research Medical Council. Bayer is providing additional support.. The trial is aimed at preventing cardiovascular disease (heart attacks, strokes, heart failure and death) in people with advanced kidney disease.. When completed it will be the first and largest ever trial evaluating blood-thinning medications for people with chronic kidney disease (CKD).. Around 50,000 Australians have advanced stages of CKD. Another 12,500 receive dialysis. Around half of them will die from cardiovascular disease (CVD) with young people at particularly greater risk of death.. There are few treatments proven to benefit people with CKD.. Some treatments that work in the general population do not perform as well in the presence of kidney disease while others have a higher risk of side effects. People with CKD have also largely been excluded from CVD trials. This has left a huge gap in both evidence and ...
WEDNESDAY, Aug. 2, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- A new treatment might open the door for more patients with advanced kidney disease to get a transplant, a preliminary study suggests.. Of the 100,000-plus Americans waiting for a donor kidney, about one-third are "sensitized," said Dr. Robert Montgomery, director of the Transplant Institute at NYU Langone in New York City.. Those patients face a tough situation: They harbor immune system antibodies that are primed to attack a donor organ.. The antibodies can form when a person is exposed to foreign tissue, Montgomery explained. So a patient whos had a prior kidney transplant may be highly sensitized -- meaning they have a large number of the offending antibodies.. It can also happen to patients whove had blood transfusion or ever been pregnant, Montgomery said.. Its almost impossible to find a compatible donor for those patients. But they might be able to receive a kidney from an incompatible donor if they first undergo an extensive ...

Surgery Surgery is the recommended treatment for early stage kidney cancer. Removal of the kidney is called nephrectomy. A person can live a normal lifespan with only one kidney if the other kidney is normal. Some patients with symptoms of pain and bleeding with minimal cancer spread elsewhere can also be offered surgery.. Sometimes radiation therapy is given. High-energy rays are focused onto the kidney cancer to relieve pain when the cancer is advanced and cannot be removed surgically. Another use for radiotherapy to the kidney cancer is to stop bleeding from the cancer. Systemic therapies, which comprise of targeted therapy and immunotherapy1, are used in advanced kidney cancer. It is not a cure but can prolong the life of the individual. There are an increasing number of new targeted therapies that have been developed in this setting2,3.. Prognosis of Kidney Cancer ...
FRANKFURT Tue Mar 11, 2014 4:22am EDT. (Reuters) - Germanys Bayer said a final stage Phase III clinical trial of cancer drug Nexavar as an adjuvant therapy for liver cancer did not meet its main target.. Nexavar, or sorafenib, is made by Bayer and Onyx Pharmaceuticals, and is already approved to treat advanced kidney cancer and liver cancer that cannot be surgically removed.. Bayer is testing the drug, taken orally, as an additional treatment for liver cancer patients who had no detectable disease after surgery. It said on Tuesday that the trial did not meet its main goal of improving recurrence-free survival..
