[Advance research directives in the context of dementia research: Ethical reflections on the disclosure requirement].

Fortschr Neurol Psychiatr 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Medizinische Fakultät, Institut für medizinische Ethik und Geschichte der Medizin.

In November 2016, the German Federal Diet adopted an amendment to the German Medicinal Products Act (Arzneimittelgesetz), which permits non-therapeutic biomedical research on incompetent adults under a number of strict conditions. One of these conditions is that the potential research participant has declared her wish to participate in biomedical research in a valid research advance directive. Before completing the research advance directive, the potential research participant must be informed about the circumstances of research participation. Read More

Evaluation of a rare glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide receptor variant in a patient with diabetes.

Diabetes Obes Metab 2019 Feb 19. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, corporate member of Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Berlin Institute of Health, Berlin, Germany; Institute of Experimental Pediatric Endocrinology, Berlin, Germany.

Aims: Glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) is an incretin hormone that augments insulin secretion in pancreatic β-cells via its glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide receptor (GIPR). Recent genome-wide association studies identified a single nucleotide variant (SNV) in the GIPR encoding gene (GIPR), rs1800437, that is associated with obesity and insulin resistance. In the present study, we tested whether GIPR variants contribute to obesity and disturb glucose homeostasis or diabetes in specific patient populations. Read More

Androgen replacement therapy in women.

Expert Rev Endocrinol Metab 2012 Sep;7(5):515-529

a 1Centre for Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, School of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, B15 2TT, UK.

Female androgens are derived from either the adrenal and peripheral conversion of the adrenal sex steroid precursor, dehydroepiandrosterone, or from direct ovarian production. Adrenal insufficiency or bilateral oophorectomy (surgical menopause) result in severe androgen deficiency, which can be clinically associated with impaired libido, drive and energy. Physiological menopause does not necessarily lead to androgen deficiency. Read More

Improving adrenal venous sampling in primary aldosteronism.

Expert Rev Endocrinol Metab 2012 Sep;7(5):531-540

a Medizinische Klinik und Poliklinik IV, Klinikum der Universität München, Ziemssenstr. 1,80336 München, Germany.

Primary aldosteronism is the most frequent cause of secondary arterial hypertension. As adrenal imaging has been shown to have only limited value for differential diagnosis, adrenal vein sampling (AVS) has been implemented as a gold standard in the guidelines. However, AVS is a not well-standardized technique, and success rates vary in a wide range. Read More

Therapeutic potential of phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors in heart failure with preserved ejection fraction and combined post- and pre-capillary pulmonary hypertension.

Int J Cardiol 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Klinik III für Innere Medizin, Herzzentrum der Universität zu Köln, Germany; Cologne Cardiovascular Research Center (CCRC), Heart Center at the University of Cologne, Germany. Electronic address:

Objective: Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is frequently associated with pulmonary hypertension (PH), which substantially impacts survival. Based on pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) and the diastolic pressure gradient (DPG), current guidelines distinguish between isolated post-capillary PH (IpcPH) and combined post- and pre-capillary PH (CpcPH). However, the therapeutic consequences of this sub-classification remain entirely unclear. Read More

Pneumologie 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Facharztforum Fürth.

The present 2019 S2k consensus guideline of the German Respiratory Society was written - in contrast to the predecessor more general S3 guidelines from 2004 and 2010 - for pneumologists, since 2014 the German College of General Practitioners and Family Physicians (DEGAM) published his own cough guidelines.The guideline contains 48 recommendations agreed by consensus and 16 statements, which are explained in the background text in the following nine chapters: epidemiology, physiology, classification, acute, subacute or chronic cough, diagnostics and therapy; an extra chapter was dedicated to chronic idiopathic cough. Further emphasis of the guideline is the physiology of cough in anticipation of the introduction of new drugs, as well as detailed treatises on cough triggered by affections in the upper respiratory tract or by gastroesophageal reflux.

Technische Universität Dresden, School of Science, Department of Psychology, Chair of Clinical Psychology and E-Mental-Health, Dresden, Germany.

Background: It is well known that web-based interventions can be effective treatments for various conditions. Less is known about predictors, moderators, and mediators of outcome and especially interrelations between participant and interventions characteristics, process variables and outcomes in online interventions. Clinical trials often lack statistical power to detect variables that affect intervention effects and their interrelations. Read More

Constant-adiabaticity radiofrequency pulses for generating long-lived singlet spin states in NMR.

J Chem Phys 2019 Feb;150(6):064201

International Tomography Center, Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Science, Novosibirsk 630090, Russia.

A method is implemented to perform "fast" adiabatic variation of the spin Hamiltonian by imposing the constant adiabaticity condition. The method is applied to improve the performance of singlet-state Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) experiments, specifically, for efficient generation and readout of the singlet spin order in coupled spin pairs by applying adiabatically ramped RF-fields. Test experiments have been performed on a specially designed molecule having two strongly coupled C spins and on selectively isotopically labelled glycerol having two pairs of coupled protons.

The risk of ischaemic events including stent thrombosis varies with the efficacy of aspirin to inhibit platelet reactivity. This study sought to investigate whether homozygous GUCY1A3 (rs7692387) risk allele carriers display higher on-aspirin platelet reactivity and risk of ischaemic events early after coronary intervention.

In April 2018, an updated version of the previously published guidelines on acute myeloid leukemia (AML) from 2010 and 2017 was released. A revision was necessary because of two positive aspects: First, new data and insights on risk stratification and monitoring, and second, the clinical development and approval of new agents. The modified genetic risk classification allows a more precise distinction of different diagnostic groups and consequently a better matched post-remission treatment. Read More
