Incretin Hormone Levels Linked to Arteriosclerosis

While existing evidence supports beneficial cardiovascular effects of glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1), emerging studies suggest that glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide (GIP) and/or signaling via the GIP receptor may have untoward cardiovascular effects. More...

Mitoses Counted with Digital Pathology in Breast Phyllodes Tumors

Phyllodes tumors (PTs) are a fibroepithelial tumor composed of an epithelial and a cellular stromal component. They may be considered benign, borderline, or malignant depending on histologic features including stromal cellularity, infiltration at the tumor's edge, and mitotic activity. More...

Blood Biomarker Predicts Guillain-Barré Prognosis

Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rare, autoimmune disorder in which a person’s own immune system damages the nerves, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis. GBS can cause symptoms that last for a few weeks to several years. Most people recover fully, but some have permanent nerve damage. More...

COVID-19 Lung Damage Caused by Persistence of Abnormal Cells

Several uncertainties still relate to the involvement of other organs in COVID-19. Besides indirect multi-organ injury, a few reports have suggested the possibility of direct injury caused by viral replication in brain, heart and kidney. More...

Circulating Tumor Cell-Count Drives Therapy Choice for Breast Cancer

The choice between chemotherapy and endocrine therapy as first-line treatment for hormone receptor–positive, ERBB2 (also known as HER2)-negative metastatic breast cancer is usually based on the presence of clinical features associated with a poor prognosis. More...

Metabolomics Profiles Associated with Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy (DR), like diabetic neuropathy and nephropathy, is a common complication of diabetes. It is the leading cause of loss of vision in diabetic patients. Long-standing disease, along with hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and genetic factors, is a major risk factor of diabetes retinopathy. More...

Autoantibody Timing Predicts Genetically At-Risk Children for Diabetes

While antibodies are molecules produced by the body's immune system to detect and destroy specific viruses, bacteria and other harmful substances, autoantibodies are antibodies that target a person's own healthy tissue. In the case of type 1 diabetes (T1D), a misdirected autoimmune response attacks the pancreas and gradually destroys the organ's insulin-producing beta cells. More...
