Eleven susceptibility loci for late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD) were identified by previous studies; however, a large portion of the genetic risk for this disease remains unexplained. We conducted a large, two-stage meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) in individuals of European ancestry. In stage 1, we used genotyped and imputed data (7,055,881 SNPs) to perform meta-analysis on 4 previously published GWAS data sets consisting of 17,008 Alzheimer's disease cases and 37,154 controls. In stage 2, 11,632 SNPs were genotyped and tested for association in an independent set of 8,572 Alzheimer's disease cases and 11,312 controls. In addition to the APOE locus (encoding apolipoprotein E), 19 loci reached genome-wide significance (P < 5 × 10-8) in the combined stage 1 and stage 2 analysis, of which 11 are newly associated with Alzheimer's disease.

It was suggested more than 30 yrs ago that inhibition of the clotting cascade by natural anticoagulants could decrease the high mortality observed in patients suffering from severe sepsis and septic shock. Unfortunately, this therapeutic "paradigm" has led to a dead end, illustrated by the failure of all randomized trials and the recent withdrawal of recombinant activated protein C. Should we now definitely give up trying to treat septic coagulation disturbances or is there any therapeutic alternative? © 2012 by the Society of Critical Care Medicine and Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.

Alcoholic liver disease (ALD) is the most prevalent cause of advanced liver disease in Europe and is the leading cause of death among adults with excessive alcohol consumption. There is a dose-response relationship between the amount of alcohol consumed and the risk of ALD. The relative risk of cirrhosis increases in subjects who consume more than 25 g/day. The burden of alcohol-attributable liver cirrhosis and liver cancer is high and is entirely preventable. Health agencies should develop population-based policies to reduce the prevalence of harmful and/or hazardous alcohol consumption and foster research in this field to provide new diagnostic and therapeutic tools. Disease progression of patients with ALD is heavily influenced by both genetic and environmental factors. Non-invasive methods for the diagnosis of fibrosis have opened new perspectives in the early detection of advanced ALD in asymptomatic patients. Alcoholic hepatitis, the most severe form of ALD, carries a high short-term mortality (around 30-50% at 3 months). Corticosteroids improve short-term survival in patients with severe alcoholic hepatitis but duration of therapy should be adapted to early response. Liver transplantation is the best option for patients with severe liver dysfunction. However, alcohol relapse after transplantation remains a critical issue and drinking habits of transplanted patients need to be routinely screened. © 2015 Published by Elsevier B.V. on behalf of the European Association for the Study of the Liver.

Osteoporosis International | Year: 2011
Although osteoporosis has been the subject of a considerable number of publications in recent years, very few studies have investigated the effects of osteopososis on the process of tissue repair. Most of the studies are based on animal data, using the ovariectomized rat model, and in most cases, fractures were obtained by femoral osteotomy. This model is imperfect in several aspects to fit with postmenopausal osteoporosis which is a complex, multifactorial disorder. Furthermore, a surgically induced fracture is not exactly the same as a fracture which occurs as a result of bone fragility. However, and despite contradictory results in some of the studies, in ovariectomized rats a delay in bone consolidation has been reported in the model, associated locally with a decrease in bone mineral density and mechanical resistance. Very few human data are available, which confirm the existence of a delay in consolidation subsequent to femoral fractures in aged patients compared to young patients. © International Osteoporosis Foundation and National Osteoporosis Foundation 2011.

The invention provides an anastomosis device for joining together hollow lumens or viscera, the device being suitable for being deployed at the surface of two superposed adjacent lumens, said device comprising a main tubular body of longitudinal axis (L), having first and second open ends and opposite outside and inside faces, said main tubular body comprising at least three columns of loops and at least three rows of loops. In characteristic manner, said tubular body further comprises sets of proximal and distal radial projections extending from said tubular body along at least a depth (E) at the peripheries of said first and second ends respectively, said distal and proximal sets being spaced apart by a minimum internal distance (D), and further comprises a set of intermediate radial projections extending from said body along at most a depth (e) and arranged between the sets of proximal and distal radial projections, in that (e) is less than (E), and in that the minimum internal distance (D) is determined so as to receive two superposed adjacent lumens.

The objective was to determine the liver regeneration capacity and morbidity and mortality rates after major hepatectomy for colorectal metastases in patients having undergone bevacizumab-based chemotherapy (bev+). Between 2006 and 2011, 41 patients underwent major hepatectomy within 3 months of bevacizumab and were matched with 41 patients operated on following systemic chemotherapy without bevacizumab (bev-). The matching criteria were the following: number of courses of chemotherapy, chemotherapy-free interval, age, and type of hepatectomy. After measurements of remnant liver volume (RLV) preoperatively and at 1 month (RLV1M), volumetric gain was calculated as absolute (RLV1M-RLV) or relative regeneration [(RLV1M-RLV/RLV)]. Ninety-day morbidity was rated according to the Clavien-Dindo classification. There were 21 right, 9 extended right, and 11 left hepatectomies in each group. Groups were comparable in terms of matching criteria, body mass index, American Society of Anesthesiologists score, and RLV. No mortalities were observed. There were no intergroup differences in overall morbidity (56% in bev+ vs 34.1%; P = 0.075) or postoperative liver failure. A severe complication occurred in 5 bev+ (4 eviscerations) and 4 bev- (bile leakages) (P = 0.95). The median hospital stay was similar in both groups as were the degrees of absolute and relative liver regeneration (143% in bev+ vs 114%; P = 0.20). Liver regeneration was not influenced by the type of hepatectomy, the number of courses of chemotherapy, or age more than 65 years. In a methodologically robust trial in the largest cohort reported up to date, bevacizumab did not impair liver regeneration after major hepatectomy-even in elderly patients or those with high exposure to chemotherapy.
