Compartment Syndrome of the Thigh in a Patient with Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.

J Orthop Case Rep 2020 May-Jun;10(3):103-107

Department of Medicine, The Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN 55905, USA.

Introduction: The severe pain that commonly accompanies appendicular flare-ups of fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is often ascribed to compartment syndrome, but no documentation exists.

Case Report: We revisited the case of an adult with classic FOP who underwent measurement of compartment pressure of the thigh during an acute, severely painful flare-up of the thigh. The intracompartmental pressure of the thigh was measured at 95--110 mm of mercury (normal compartment pressure is 0--8 mmHg). Read More

Expression profile of microRNAs (106b-3p, 130b-3, 145-3p, 199a-5p) in urine and serum samples from patients with the diagnosis of bladder cancer.

Pol Merkur Lekarski 2021 Apr;49(290):103-107

Medical University of Lodz, Poland: 1st Department of Urology.

MicroRNAs (miRNA) are short, single stranded, non-coding RNAs that play an important role in controlling gene expression at the posttranscriptional stage. There is no bladder cancer marker that has been approved as an alternative for diagnostic cystoscopy and urine cytology so far, thus research for alternative, more sensitive, and less invasive methods of bladder cancer detection are being made.

Aim: The aim of the study was to compare the relative expression levels of miRNAs in patients with bladder cancer. Read More

Acta Neurochir Suppl 2021 ;131:103-107

National Medical Research Center for Children's Health, Moscow, Russia.

Brain biomarkers (protein S100b and neuron-specific enolase (NSE)), antibodies (aAb) to the NR2 subunit of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NR2(NMDA)) and to the GluR1 subunit of the α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid (GluR1(AMPA)) subtype of glutamate receptors (GluR), NR2 and AMPA peptides, nitrogen oxides (NOx; "nitrites and nitrates"), and 3-nitrotyrosine (NT) were measured in blood from 159 children after mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), moderate traumatic brain injury (mdTBI), or severe traumatic brain injury (sTBI) within 1-2 days and at intervals during the first 15 days after brain trauma. S100b and NSE levels on the first day were not a strict criterion for injury outcomes. Children with mTBI had the most significant elevations in antibodies to NR2(NMDA) and AMPA peptides, a slight increase in NOx, and, in 25% of cases, appearance of NT in the blood right after TBI.

Hepatic Ago2 Regulates PPARα for Oxidative Metabolism Linked to Glycemic Control in Obesity and Post Bariatric Surgery.

Endocrinology 2021 Apr;162(4)

Division of Endocrinology, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.

Argonaute 2 (Ago2) is the main component of the RNA-induced silencing complex. We recently showed that liver-specific Ago2-deficiency in mice (L-Ago2 knockout [KO] mice) enhances mitochondrial oxidation and alleviates obesity-associated pathophysiology. However, the precise mechanisms behind the role of hepatic Ago2 in regulating the mitochondrial oxidation associated with glucose metabolism are still unclear. Read More
