Association of kidney disease measures with risk of renal function worsening in patients with type 1 diabetes.

BMC Nephrol 2018 Dec 4;19(1):347. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Department of Medical Sciences, Scientific Institute "Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza", IRCCS Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza, v.le Cappuccini, 71013, San Giovanni Rotondo, FG, Italy.

Background: Albuminuria has been classically considered a marker of kidney damage progression in diabetic patients and it is routinely assessed to monitor kidney function. However, the role of a mild GFR reduction on the development of stage ≥3 CKD has been less explored in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) patients. Aim of the present study was to evaluate the prognostic role of kidney disease measures, namely albuminuria and reduced GFR, on the development of stage ≥3 CKD in a large cohort of patients affected by T1DM.

ANNALS EXPRESS: The association of serum and vitreous adropin concentrations with diabetic retinopathy.

Ann Clin Biochem 2018 Dec 4:4563218820359. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Qilu Hospital of Shandong University (Qingdao).

Objective: Adropin, a newly identified regulatory protein encoded by Enho gene, is correlated with insulin sensitivity and diabetes. The aim of this study is to determine whether serum and vitreous adropin concentrations are correlated with the presence of diabetic retinopathy (DR).

Methods: A population of 165 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) [52 without DR, 69 with non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR), and 44 patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR)] was enrolled in this study. Read More

ANNALS EXPRESS: Hematopoietic alterations in neonates with congenital diaphragmatic hernia receiving extracorporeal membrane oxygenation support.

Ann Clin Biochem 2018 Dec 4:4563218820052. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Department of Neonatology and Pediatric Critical Care Medicine, University of Bonn Children's Hospital.

Background Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation procedure (ECMO) has been established in the therapy of respiratory insufficient infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). In CDH newborns, a delay in transfer to an ECMO center is associated with a sharp increase in mortality. Predictive factors for ECMO support are urgently needed. Read More

ANNALS EXPRESS: Autotaxin and sIL-2R levels in cerebrospinal fluids are useful for the diagnosis of central nervous system invasion caused by hematological malignancies.

Ann Clin Biochem 2018 Dec 4:4563218818197. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

The University of Tokyo.

Background: Invasion of the central nervous system (CNS) by hematological malignancies is diagnosed by cytological analyses of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) or diagnostic imaging, while quantitative biomarkers for CNS invasion are not available and needed to be developed. Methods; In this study, we measured the levels of autotaxin (ATX) and soluble IL-2 receptor (sIL-2R) in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and evaluated their usefulness as biomarkers for CNS invasion.

Results: We observed that both the ATX and sIL-2R levels in CSF were higher in subjects with CNS invasion than in those without, and the CSF levels were independent from the serum levels of these biomarkers. Read More

J Nephrol 2018 Nov 27. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Università degli Studi and IRCCS Policlinico San Martino-IST, Genoa, Italy.

The Associazione Medici Diabetologi (AMD) annals initiative is an ongoing observational survey promoted by AMD. It is based on a public network of about 700 Italian diabetes clinics, run by specialists who provide diagnostic confirmation and prevention and treatment of diabetes and its complications. Over the last few years, analysis of the AMD annals dataset has contributed several important insights on the clinical features of type-2 diabetes kidney disease and their prognostic and therapeutic implications.

Department of General, Transplant and Liver Surgery, Medical University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland.

My surgical education began at a time when Poland formed part of the communist bloc and was isolated from the world, or in today's Terms - it remained behind the Iron Curtain. This was true of all areas of life, including medicine. When after 40 years of work, I look back at my professional career; I wonder whether I owe my proficiency in surgery to my experience and dexterity or, like many others, to technological progress.

ANNALS EXPRESS: Retrospective evaluation of a local protocol used to enhance laboratory savings through minimising the performance of alkaline phosphatase isoenzyme analysis.

Ann Clin Biochem 2018 Nov 17:4563218817571. Epub 2018 Nov 17.

Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Background: Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) isoenzyme analysis is an expensive and time-consuming laboratory test. We evaluated the effect of a locally-derived screening algorithm for ALP isoenzyme requests on the number of ALP isoenzyme analyses performed, laboratory cost, and patient care.

Method: 110 ALP isoenzyme analysis requests from the year 2015 were reviewed and subsequent ALP concentrations were monitored over a 2-year period, to determine if the decision of performing/not performing ALP isoenzyme analysis, based on the algorithm, had an impact on patient care and laboratory cost.

Performance measures for ERCP and endoscopic ultrasound: a European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) Quality Improvement Initiative.

Endoscopy 2018 Nov 19;50(11):1116-1127. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

Northern Institute for Cancer Research, Newcastle University, Newcastle, United Kingdom.

The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and United European Gastroenterology present a short list of key performance measures for endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). We recommend that endoscopy services across Europe adopt the following seven key and one minor performance measures for EUS and ERCP, for measurement and evaluation in daily practice at center and endoscopist level: 1: Adequate antibiotic prophylaxis before ERCP (key performance measure, at least 90 %); 2: Antibiotic prophylaxis before EUS-guided puncture of cystic lesions (key performance measure, at least 95 %); 3: Bile duct cannulation rate (key performance measure, at least 90 %); 4: Tissue sampling during EUS (key performance measure, at least 85 %); 5: Appropriate stent placement in patients with biliary obstruction below the hilum (key performance measure, at least 95 %); 6: Bile duct stone extraction (key performance measure, at least 90 %); 7: Post-ERCP pancreatitis (key performance measure, less than 10 %). 8: Adequate documentation of EUS landmarks (minor performance measure, at least 90 %).
