Tibiofemoral Articular Cartilage Composition Differs Based on Serum Biochemical Profiles Following Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction.

Osteoarthritis Cartilage 2021 Sep 15. Epub 2021 Sep 15.

Department of Exercise and Sports Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, NC.

Objective: Biochemical joint changes contribute to posttraumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA) development following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). The purpose of this longitudinal cohort study was to compare tibiofemoral cartilage composition between ACLR patients with different serum biochemical profiles. We hypothesized that profiles of increased inflammation (monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 [MCP-1]), type-II collagen turnover (type-II collagen breakdown [C2C]:synthesis [CPII]), matrix degradation (matrix metalloproteinase-3 [MMP-3] and cartilage oligomeric matrix protein [COMP]) preoperatively to 6-months post-ACLR would be associated with greater tibiofemoral cartilage T1ρ relaxation times 12-months post-ACLR.

Mol Psychiatry 2021 Sep 17. Epub 2021 Sep 17.

Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

Bipolar disorder (BD) and obesity are highly comorbid. We previously performed a genome-wide association study (GWAS) for BD risk accounting for the effect of body mass index (BMI), which identified a genome-wide significant single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the gene encoding the transcription factor 7 like 2 (TCF7L2). However, the molecular function of TCF7L2 in the central nervous system (CNS) and its possible role in the BD and BMI interaction remained unclear. Read More

Care of Pregnant Women With a History of Bariatric Surgery.

Nurs Womens Health 2021 Sep 14. Epub 2021 Sep 14.

In recent years, the incidence of bariatric surgery has increased among women of reproductive age. Health care providers should be knowledgeable about the impact bariatric surgery has on women and developing fetuses to effectively provide care from preconception through postpartum. Although pregnancy in women with normal weight or with excess weight after bariatric surgery has better outcomes when compared to pregnancy complicated by obesity, it is associated with complications such as nutritional deficiencies, low birth weight, and fetal growth restriction.
