Diabetes Insipidus and Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone in Critically Ill Patients.

Crit Care Clin 2019 Apr 28;35(2):187-200. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Intensive Care Unit, Royal Melbourne Hospital, 300 Grattan Street, Parkville, Victoria 3050, Australia.

Diabetes insipidus and the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion lie at opposite ends of the spectrum of disordered renal handling of water. Whereas renal retention of water insidiously causes hypotonic hyponatremia in syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion, diabetes insipidus may lead to free water loss, hypernatremia, and volume depletion. Hypernatremia and hyponatremia are associated with worse outcomes and longer intensive care stays. Read More

Acta Biomater 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Division of Craniofacial Function Engineering, Tohoku University Graduate School of Dentistry, Sendai, Japan. Electronic address:

Effect of octacalcium phosphate/gelatin composite (OCP/Gel) on angiogenesis was studied by its implantation in rat calvaria critical-sized defect in relation to bone regeneration for 2 and 4 weeks. The implantation of OCP/Gel disks was analyzed by radiomorphometry using a radiopaque material perfusion (Microfil®) method and histomorphometry by hematoxylin and eosin (HE)-staining before and after the decalcification. Effect of the OCP dose in the range up to 4 mg per well on the capillary-like tube formation by human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) was also examined in a transwell cell culture.

Mult Scler Int 2019 15;2019:7151685. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Director, Clinical Research; Consultants in Neurology, Multiple Sclerosis Center, Northbrook, IL, USA.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic progressive neurodegenerative demyelinating disease affecting the central nervous system. Glatiramer acetate (GA; Copaxone®) was the first disease-modifying treatment (DMT) for MS successfully tested in humans (1977) and was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in December 1996. Since then, there have been numerous developments in the MS field: advances in neuroimaging allowing more rapid and accurate diagnosis; the availability of a range of DMTs including immunosuppressant monoclonal antibodies and oral agents; a more holistic approach to treatment by multidisciplinary teams; and an improved awareness of the need to consider a patient's preferences and patient-reported outcomes such as quality of life.
