High-dimensional characterization of post-acute sequalae of COVID-19.

Nature 2021 Apr 22. Epub 2021 Apr 22.

Clinical Epidemiology Center, Research and Development Service, VA Saint Louis Health Care System, Saint Louis, MO, USA.

The acute clinical manifestations of COVID-19 are well characterized; however, its post-acute sequalae have not been comprehensively described. Here, we use the national healthcare databases of the US Department of Veterans Affairs to systematically and comprehensively identify 6-month incident sequalae including diagnoses, medication use, and laboratory abnormalities in 30-day survivors of COVID-19. We show that beyond the first 30 days of illness, people with COVID-19 exhibit higher risk of death and health resource utilization. Read More

Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Femme Mère Enfant University Hospital, 59 Boulevard Pinel, 69677 Lyon-Bron, France.; Claude Bernard University Lyon 1, avenue Rockfeller, 69008 Lyon.

Obstetrical anal sphincter injury (OASIS) may lead to significant comorbidities, including anal incontinence, rectovaginal fistula, and pain. A correct repair is required to avoid improper healing, as a persistent defect in the external anal sphincter after delivery can increase the risk of complications and worsening of symptoms following subsequent vaginal deliveries. Herein is described the surgical repair technique for a fourth degree perineal tear. Read More

Lactose intolerance: An update on its pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment.

Nutr Res 2021 Mar 21;89:23-34. Epub 2021 Mar 21.

ReGenera R&D International for Aging Intervention & San Babila Clinic, Milano, Italy. Electronic address:

Lactose intolerance has a high prevalence worldwide, ranging between 57% and 65%. It is caused by a reduction or loss of the activity of the intestinal enzyme lactase-phlorizin hydrolase, responsible for the digestion of lactose. This alteration determines an increased osmotic load in the small intestine and the fermentation of lactose by the bacterial flora, which leads to a high production of short-chain fatty acids and gas.

Bioactivity Profiling of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) Identifies Potential Toxicity Pathways Related to Molecular Structure.

Toxicology 2021 Apr 19:152789. Epub 2021 Apr 19.

Attagene, Inc., 7030 Kit Creek Rd, Morrisville, NC, 27560, USA.

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a broad class of hundreds of fluorinated chemicals with environmental health concerns due to their widespread presence and persistence in the environment. Several of these chemicals have been comprehensively studied for experimental toxicity, environmental fate and exposure, and human epidemiology; however, most chemicals have limited or no data available. To inform methods for prioritizing these data-poor chemicals for detailed toxicity studies, we evaluated 142 PFAS using an in vitro screening platform consisting of two multiplexed transactivation assays encompassing 81 diverse transcription factor activities and tested in concentration-response format ranging from 137 nM to 300 μM.
