[Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: Regional Deprivation, Disease Characteristics and Relevant Health Care].

Gesundheitswesen 2021 Sep 24. Epub 2021 Sep 24.

Institut für Sozialmedizin und Epidemiologie, Universität zu Lübeck, Lübeck, Deutschland.

Hintergrund: Regionale Deprivation ist als ökologischer Parameter eine Komponente der sozialen Determinanten von Gesundheit. Zu ihrer Messung stehen in Deutschland der "German Index of Multiple Deprivation" (GIMD) und der "German Index of Socioeconomic Deprivation" (GISD) zur Verfügung. Chronisch entzündliche Darmerkrankungen (CED) sind keine häufigen, aber ernste körperliche Erkrankungen unklarer Ätiologie, mit vergleichsweise frühem Auftreten im Erwachsenenalter, oft chronisch-behandlungsbedürftigem Verlauf und unsicherer Prognose.

Prospective, double-blind diagnostic multicentre study of confocal laser endomicroscopy for wheat sensitivity in patients with irritable bowel syndrome.

Gut 2021 Sep 20. Epub 2021 Sep 20.

Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Corporate member of Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Berlin Institute of Health, Campus Benjamin Franklin, Department for Internal Medicine (Gastroenterology, Infectious Diseases, Rheumatology, Berlin, Germany.

Objective: A considerable proportion of patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) may be wheat-sensitive and respond to a gluten-free diet (GFD) although they do not have coeliac disease. However, a diagnostic test for wheat sensitivity (WS) is missing. Our study evaluated the diagnostic accuracy (sensitivity and specificity) of confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) for the identification of WS as primary outcome. Read More

Engineering threshold-based selection systems.

G3 (Bethesda) 2021 Sep;11(9)

Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC 27599, USA.

Using model organisms to identify novel therapeutic targets is frequently constrained by pre-existing genetic toolkits. To expedite positive selection for identification of novel downstream effectors, we engineered conditional expression of activated CED-10/Rac to disrupt Caenorhabditis elegans embryonic morphogenesis, titrated to 100% lethality. The strategy of engineering thresholds for positive selection using experimental animals was validated with pharmacological and genetic suppression and is generalizable to diverse molecular processes and experimental systems.

Can decontamination and reuse of N95 respirators during COVID-19 pandemic provide energy, environmental, and economic benefits?

Appl Energy 2021 Dec 14;304:117848. Epub 2021 Sep 14.

Systems Engineering, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA.

The widespread COVID-19 pandemic led to a shortage in the supply of N95 respirators in the United States until May 2021. In this study, we address the energy, environmental, and economic benefits of the decontamination-and-reuse of the N95 masks. Two popular decontamination methods, including dry heat and vapor hydrogen peroxide (VHP), are investigated in this study for their effective pathogen inactivation and favorable performance in preserving filtration efficiency and structural integrity of respirators.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Aug 27;22(17). Epub 2021 Aug 27.

Department of Chemistry, Organic Chemistry OCIII, Universität Bielefeld, Universitätsstraße 25, 33615 Bielefeld, Germany.

Gluten-related disorders (GRDs) are a group of diseases that involve the activation of the immune system triggered by the ingestion of gluten, with a worldwide prevalence of 5%. Among them, Celiac disease (CeD) is a T-cell-mediated autoimmune disease causing a plethora of symptoms from diarrhea and malabsorption to lymphoma. Even though GRDs have been intensively studied, the environmental triggers promoting the diverse reactions to gluten proteins in susceptible individuals remain elusive. Read More

Pathogenic T Cells in Celiac Disease Change Phenotype on Gluten Challenge: Implications for T-Cell-Directed Therapies.

Adv Sci (Weinh) 2021 Sep 8:e2102778. Epub 2021 Sep 8.

KG Jebsen Coeliac Disease Research Centre, University of Oslo, Oslo, 0372, Norway.

Gluten-specific CD4 T cells being drivers of celiac disease (CeD) are obvious targets for immunotherapy. Little is known about how cell markers harnessed for T-cell-directed therapy can change with time and upon activation in CeD and other autoimmune conditions. In-depth characterization of gluten-specific CD4 T cells and CeD-associated (CD38 and CD103 ) CD8 and γδ T cells in blood of treated CeD patients undergoing a 3 day gluten challenge is reported.

Computed tomography findings in a cohort of 169 dogs with elbow dysplasia - a retrospective study.

BMC Vet Res 2021 Sep 6;17(1):296. Epub 2021 Sep 6.

Department of Preclinical Sciences and Infectious Diseases, Poznan University of Life Sciences, ul. Wołyńska 35, 60-637, Poznań, Poland.

Background: Canine elbow dysplasia (CED) is a complex developmental skeletal disorder associated with a number of pathological conditions within the cubital joint. Because CED is a heritable disease, it is important to identify and remove the affected animals from breeding. The first objective of this study was to describe the prevalence of medial coronoid process disease (MCPD) without (MCD) or with (FMCP) fragmented medial coronoid process, osteochondrosis (OC) and/or osteochondritis dissecans (OCD), ununited anconeal process (UAP), radio-ulnar incongruence (INC R-U) and humero-ulnar incongruence (INC H-U) in dogs with the use of CT imaging.

Transl Med UniSa 2020 Sep 1;23:28-36. Epub 2020 Oct 1.

Department of Pathological Anatomy, AUSL Romagna, Morgagni-Pierantoni Hospital, Forlì, Italy.

Celiac Disease (CeD) is an immune-mediated inflammatory disorder of the small intestine, affecting genetically susceptible individuals when exposed to gluten. Small intestinal biopsy interpretation has been the "gold standard" for celiac disease (CeD) for over 50 years. Despite today's availability of sensitive and specific serological tests, the histopathological features from mucosal biopsy play a key role in diagnosing when CeD is suspected. Read More

Neurorescue Effects of Frondoside A and Ginsenoside Rg3 in Model of Parkinson's Disease.

Molecules 2021 Aug 10;26(16). Epub 2021 Aug 10.

Department of Anatomy, Faculty of Science, Mahidol University, Ratchathewi, Bangkok 10400, Thailand.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a currently incurable neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the loss of dopaminergic (DAergic) neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta and α-synuclein aggregation. Accumulated evidence indicates that the saponins, especially from ginseng, have neuroprotective effects against neurodegenerative disorders. Interestingly, saponin can also be found in marine organisms such as the sea cucumber, but little is known about its effect in neurodegenerative disease, including PD. Read More

Semin Arthritis Rheum 2021 Oct 25;51(5):1033-1044. Epub 2021 Jul 25.

Department of Rheumatology, Oslo University Hospital - Rikshospitalet, P.O. box 4950 Nydalen, 0424 Oslo, Norway; Department of Rheumatology and Infectious Diseases, Institute of Clinical Medicine, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway.

Co-factors, Microbes, and Immunogenetics in Celiac Disease to Guide Novel Approaches for Diagnosis and Treatment.

Gastroenterology 2021 Aug 17. Epub 2021 Aug 17.

Institute of Translational Immunology,Research Center for Immune Therapy and Celiac Center, University Medical Center, Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany; Division of Gastroenterology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Electronic address:

Celiac disease (CeD) is a frequent immune-mediated disease that affects not only the small intestine but also many extraintestinal sites. The role of gluten proteins as dietary triggers, HLA-DQ2 or -DQ8 as major necessary genetic predisposition, and tissue transglutaminase (TG2) as mechanistically involved autoantigen, are unique features of CeD. Recent research implicates many cofactors working in synergism with these key triggers, including the intestinal microbiota and their metabolites, nongluten dietary triggers, intestinal barrier defects, novel immune cell phenotypes, and mediators and cytokines.
