A miR-29a-driven negative feedback loop regulates peripheral glucocorticoid receptor signaling.

FASEB J 2019 Feb 11:fj201801385RR. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Institute for Diabetes and Cancer (IDC), Helmholtz Center Munich, Neuherberg, Germany.

The glucocorticoid receptor (GR) represents the crucial molecular mediator of key endocrine, glucocorticoid hormone-dependent regulatory circuits, including control of glucose, protein, and lipid homeostasis. Consequently, aberrant glucocorticoid signaling is linked to severe metabolic disorders, including insulin resistance, obesity, and hyperglycemia, all of which also appear upon chronic glucocorticoid therapy for the treatment of inflammatory conditions. Of note, long-term glucocorticoid exposure under these therapeutic conditions typically induces glucocorticoid resistance, requiring higher doses and consequently triggering more severe metabolic phenotypes.

Aging is accompanied by several changes which may affect swallowing function. The beginning of these changes, termed presbyphagia, still captures a preserved swallowing function, although burdened by the consequences of the physiological aging process. Several stressors (including diseases and medications) can easily trigger the disruption of this (increasingly weak) equilibrium and lead to overt dysphagia. Read More

Transnasal Esophagoscopy-Our Experience.

Int Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Jan 11;23(1):7-11. Epub 2018 Oct 11.

Department of ENT, Lancaster Royal Infirmary, Lancaster, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

 Transnasal esophagoscopy (TNE) is a widely used tool both in the diagnosis and treatment of patients presenting complaints within the head and the neck. This is because this investigative adjunct examination provides the advantage of visualizing above the level of the cricopharyngeus muscle when compared to the more widely used esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD).  We have assessed if the implementation of TNE within a district general hospital (DGH) was feasible, and investigated if the resources of our patients could be better directed away from other investigations such as barium swallow and EGD in favor of this novel technique.

Proton Pump Inhibitor Ameliorates Taste Disturbance among Patients with Laryngopharyngeal Reflux: A Randomized Controlled Study.

Tohoku J Exp Med 2019 01;247(1):19-25

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Nagoya City University.

Patients with laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) were reported to suffer from hypogeusia that affects quality of life. Proton pump inhibitor (PPI) is a useful drug in the treatment of LPR, but its effect on hypogeusia is not known. We therefore assessed the effects of PPI or a histamine H2 receptor antagonist (H2 blocker) on hypogeusia among patients with LPR. Read More

The Association of 3-D Volume and 2-D Area of Post-swallow Pharyngeal Residue on CT Imaging.

Dysphagia 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, 21287, USA.

Pharyngeal residue, the material that remains in the pharynx after swallowing, is an important marker of impairments in swallowing and prandial aspiration risk. The goals of this study were to determine whether the 2D area of post-swallow residue accurately represents its 3D volume, and if the laterality of residue would affect this association. Thirteen patients with dysphagia due to brainstem stroke completed dynamic 320-detector row computed tomography while swallowing a trial of 10 ml honey-thick barium. Read More

Improving the Diagnostic Capability of the Modified Barium Swallow Study Through Standardization of an Esophageal Sweep Protocol.

Dysphagia 2019 Feb 11;34(1):34-42. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Center for Swallowing Disorders, University of South Florida, 13330 USF Laurel Drive, Tampa, FL, 33612, USA.

The modified  barium swallow (MBS) study is a videofluoroscopic evaluation of oropharyngeal swallow function. Esophageal imaging is not routinely performed during an MBS, and few guidelines for implementation or interpretation exist. Aims of the current investigation were to (1) delineate the percentage of normal, oropharyngeal, esophageal, and mixed swallowing dysfunction, (2) develop operational definitions for rating our standardization cursory view of esophageal bolus flow, and (3) determine inter-rater reliability between speech pathology (SLP) and physician raters for categorizing esophageal abnormalities.

Correlation Between Clinical Signs and High-Resolution Manometry Data in Children.

J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Gastroenterology, North Hospital, Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Marseille, Marseille, France.

Objectives: High-resolution manometry (HRM) is the gold standard for diagnosis of esophageal motility disorders. However, clinical signs associated with these disorders are non-specific, and it is difficult to correlate clinical signs with HRM data. The main objective of our study was to assess the positive predictive value (PPV) and negative predictive value (NPV) of each clinical sign, as well as their sensitivity and specificity in the diagnosis of esophageal motility disorders.
