Data-Driven Clustering Approach to Derive Taste Perception Profiles from Sweet, Salt, Sour, Bitter, and Umami Perception Scores: An Illustration among Older Adults with Metabolic Syndrome.

J Nutr 2021 Jun 10. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

Cardiovascular Nutrition Laboratory, Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, Tufts University, Boston, MA, USA.

Background: Current approaches to studying relations between taste perception and diet quality typically consider each taste-sweet, salt, sour, bitter, umami-separately or aggregately, as total taste scores. Consistent with studying dietary patterns rather than single foods or total energy, an additional approach may be to study all 5 tastes collectively as "taste perception profiles."

Objective: We developed a data-driven clustering approach to derive taste perception profiles from taste perception scores and examined whether profiles outperformed total taste scores for capturing individual variability in taste perception. Read More

Skin biopsies in acute myeloid leukemia patients undergoing intensive chemotherapy are safe and effect patient management.

Sci Rep 2021 Jun 7;11(1):11940. Epub 2021 Jun 7.

Institute of Hematology, Davidoff Cancer Center, Rabin Medical Center - Beilinson Hospital, 39 Zeev Jabotinsky St., 4941492, Petach Tikva, Israel.

There is paucity of data regarding the diagnostic yield and safety of skin biopsies in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), though skin eruptions are common in these patients. We evaluated 216 patients treated in our hemato-oncology unit at a tertiary medical center between 2007 and 2018 and identified 35 patients who underwent 37 skin biopsies. The majority of biopsies were performed during induction treatment for AML (n = 26, 70%), whereas the remainder of biopsies were done prior to induction initiation (n = 8, 22%) or during consolidation chemotherapy (n = 3, 8%).

The outbreak of mysterious pneumonia at the end of 2019 is associated with widespread research interest worldwide. The coronavirus disease-19 (COVID-19) targets multiple organs through inflammatory, immune, and redox mechanisms, and no effective drug for its prophylaxis or treatment has been identified until now. The use of dietary bioactive compounds, such as phenolic compounds (PC), has emerged as a putative nutritional or therapeutic adjunct approach for COVID-19. Read More

Starchy Vegetables and Metabolic Syndrome in Costa Rica.

Nutrients 2021 May 13;13(5). Epub 2021 May 13.

Department of Nutritional Sciences, School of Public Health, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109, USA.

Only a few studies primarily examined the associations between starchy vegetables (other than potatoes) and metabolic syndrome (MetS). We aimed to evaluate the association between starchy vegetables consumption and MetS in a population-based sample of Costa Rican adults. We hypothesized that a higher overall intake of starchy vegetables would not be associated with higher MetS prevalence. Read More

Myocarditis Concurrent with Sweet Syndrome: A Presentation of Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

Case Rep Hematol 2021 11;2021:6621007. Epub 2021 May 11.

University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center, 800 Rose Street, Lexington, KY 40536, USA.

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is the most common acute leukemia in American adults and portends a poor prognosis if untreated. Commonly, AML presents with symptoms related to concurrent leukopenia, anemia, or thrombocytopenia; however, due to its ability to affect many organ systems in the body, AML can have a highly varied clinical presentation. One such presentation is myocarditis, which is a rarely reported manifestation of AML. Read More

Azathioprine hypersensitivity syndrome: report of two cases.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 May 19;14(5). Epub 2021 May 19.

Pharmacy, Cairns Base Hospital, Cairns, Queensland, Australia.

Azathioprine hypersensitivity syndrome is a rare but potentially severe side effect of azathioprine use. It has a variable and non-specific presentation making it difficult to distinguish from sepsis or disease relapse. High clinical suspicion is therefore required for recognition and prompt cessation of azathioprine for symptom resolution. Read More

Characterizing the presence of neutrophil extracellular traps in neutrophilic dermatoses.

Exp Dermatol 2021 May 9. Epub 2021 May 9.

Department of Dermatology, American University of Beirut Medical Center, Beirut, Lebanon.

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are implicated in the pathogenesis of multiple inflammatory dermatoses. However, characterization of NETs in neutrophilic dermatoses was performed on very limited number of patients; this limitation precluded definitive conclusions. In this case series of 57 patients, we compared the amounts of neutrophils producing NETs in cutaneous lesions of different entities of neutrophilic dermatoses (17 with pyoderma gangrenosum, 37 with Sweet's syndrome and three with subcorneal pustular dermatosis).

J Food Sci 2021 May 28;86(5):1511-1531. Epub 2021 Apr 28.

Tecnologico de Monterrey, Escuela de Ingenieria y Ciencias, Zapopan, Jal, Mexico.

Metabolic syndrome is a multifactorial disorder originating from central obesity through a high caloric intake and a sedentary lifestyle. Metabolic syndrome increases the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) disease, converting it to one of the costliest chronic diseases, which reduces life quality. A strategy proposed by the food industry to reduce this problem is the generation of low-caloric products using sweeteners, which are compounds that can substitute sucrose, given their sweet taste.

mTOR inhibitors reduce enteropathy, intestinal bleeding and colectomy rate in juvenile polyposis of infancy due to PTEN-BMPR1A deletion syndrome.

Hum Mol Genet 2021 Apr 2. Epub 2021 Apr 2.

Translational Gastroenterology Unit, University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom.

Background: Ultrarare genetic disorders can provide proof of concept for efficacy of targeted therapeutics and reveal pathogenic mechanisms relevant to more common conditions. Juvenile polyposis of infancy (JPI) is caused by microdeletions in chromosome 10 that result in haploinsufficiency of two tumor suppressor genes: phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted on chromosome 10 (PTEN) and bone morphogenetic protein receptor, type IA (BMPR1A). Loss of PTEN and BMPR1A results in a much more severe phenotype then deletion of either gene alone, with infantile onset pan-enteric polyposis and a high mortality rate. Read More
