Medical Journal Abstracts

Overview

Medical Journal Abstracts

The medical journal abstracts section provides healthcare professionals with access to key journal abstracts. Bringing together articles from a full range of sources, this resource aims to provide doctors with a starting point for their journal research.

The regularly updated journals can be sorted by disease/condition, source name and the date of publication. Alternatively they can be accessed within the relevant epgonline.org disease topic areas, via the collapsible menu at the top of each page of the epgonline.org website.

Transcutaneous supraorbital neurostimulation in "de novo" patients with migraine without aura: the first Italian experience.

-87 days ago -  Transcutaneous supraorbital neurostimulation in "de novo" patients with migraine without aura: the first Italian experience.

BACKGROUND: Transcutaneous supraorbital neurostimulation (tSNS) has been recently found superior to sham stimulation for episodic migraine prevention in a randomized trial. We evaluated both the ...

Orlistat limits cholesterol intestinal absorption by Niemann-pick C1-like 1 (NPC1L1) inhibition.

today -  Orlistat limits cholesterol intestinal absorption by Niemann-pick C1-like 1 (NPC1L1) inhibition.

The known mechanism by which orlistat decreases the absorption of dietary cholesterol is by inhibition of intestinal lipases. The aim of this study was to investigate the ability of orlistat to ...

today -  The Presence of Risk Factors for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Underserved Preschool Children.

This study identified risk factors (ie, high-risk racial/ethnic group, overweight/obesity, elevated blood pressure, elevated casual blood glucose, and the presence of acanthosis nigricans) for the ...

Sitagliptin versus mitiglinide switched from mealtime dosing of a rapid-acting insulin analog in patients with type 2 diabetes: a randomized, parallel-group study.

today -  Sitagliptin versus mitiglinide switched from mealtime dosing of a rapid-acting insulin analog in patients with type 2 diabetes: a randomized, parallel-group study.

Purpose: We determined the feasibility of substituting sitagliptin or mitiglinide for bolus insulin injection therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes. Methods: 60 patients ...

today -  A randomized controlled trial comparing treatment with oral agents and basal insulin in elderly patients with type 2 diabetes in long-term care facilities

Background: Managing hyperglycemia and diabetes is challenging in geriatric patients admitted to long-term care (LTC) facilities. Methods: This randomized control trial enrolled patients ...

An Islet-Targeted Genome-Wide Association Scan Identifies Novel Genes Implicated in Cytokine-Mediated Islet Stress in Type 2 Diabetes

today -  An Islet-Targeted Genome-Wide Association Scan Identifies Novel Genes Implicated in Cytokine-Mediated Islet Stress in Type 2 Diabetes

Genome-wide association studies in human type 2 diabetes (T2D) have renewed interest in the pancreatic islet as a contributor to T2D risk. Chronic low-grade inflammation resulting from ...

Effects of parathyroid hormone on bone mass, bone strength, and bone regeneration in male rats with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

today -  Effects of parathyroid hormone on bone mass, bone strength, and bone regeneration in male rats with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is associated with increased skeletal fragility and impaired fracture healing. Intermittent PTH therapy increases bone strength; however, its skeletal and ...

Leptin improves insulin resistance and hyperglycemia in a mouse model of type 2 diabetes.

today -  Leptin improves insulin resistance and hyperglycemia in a mouse model of type 2 diabetes.

Leptin has metabolic effects on peripheral tissues including muscle, liver, and pancreas, and it has been successfully used to treat lipodystrophic diabetes, a leptin-deficient state. To ...

Percutaneous Implantation of an Entirely Intracardiac Leadless Pacemaker

5 days ago -  Percutaneous Implantation of an Entirely Intracardiac Leadless Pacemaker

BACKGROUND: Cardiac pacemakers are limited by device-related complications, notably infection and problems related to pacemaker leads. We studied a miniaturized, fully self-contained leadless ...

A New Epigenetic Mechanism of Temozolomide Action in Glioma Cells.

9 days ago -  A New Epigenetic Mechanism of Temozolomide Action in Glioma Cells.

Temozolomide (TMZ) is an oral alkylating chemotherapeutic agent that prolongs the survival of patients with glioblastoma (GBM). Despite that high TMZ potential, progression of disease and recurrence ...
