Age at the Onset of Type 2 Diabetes Correlates with Phenotype of Low Molecular Weight Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase

Gloria-Bottini F, Antonacci E, Neri A, Magrini A and Bottini E

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: January 15, 2018

Several lines of evidence suggests that cytosolic Low Molecular Weight Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase (cLMWPTP), encoded by ACP1 gene, could be a candidate gene for T2D. Previous studies, however, have not found a direct association between the enzyme phenotype and susceptibility to the disease but have only found associations with its clinical manifestations....

Role of TXNIP Biology in Glucose Metabolism

Alec B Chaves, Jacob M Haus and Joseph A Houmard

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: January 08, 2018

Skeletal muscle insulin resistance is a major contributor to the natural history of type 2 diabetes mellitus. A common underpinning that exists behind the mechanisms of insulin resistance is the overproduction of reactive oxygen species, which may be exacerbated by a protein target known as thioredoxin-interacting protein (TXNIP). ...

Platypnea-Orthodeoxia Syndrome: Positional Reversal of the Interatrial Pressure Gradient Demonstrated by Atrial Septal Motion

Serio Farris and Serio M Kerala

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 11, 2018

Platypnea-Orthodeoxia Syndrome (POS) is a rare clinical syndrome characterized by dyspnea and hypoxemia while upright that are relieved when the patient is supine. A right to left shunt in combination with several hypothesized hemodynamic or structural factors are needed to develop the syndrome. It is an important source of dyspnea in a small percentage of often-elderly patients. The exact mechani...

Analogs of the Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney Test When There is a Covariate

Rand R Wilcox

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 22, 2017

Certainly the best-known method for making inferences about p is the Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney (WMW) test. It is well known, however, that under general conditions, the WMW method uses an incorrect estimate of the standard error. Numerous methods have been derived for dealing with this issue....

Effect of a β2-Adrenoceptor Agonist and an Anticholinergic Drug on Respiratory Patterns and Dyspnea Sensation in Patients with COPD

Schmid F, Zuhlke I, Hein H, Magnussen H and Jorres RA

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 13, 2017

The standard treatment of patients with COPD comprises β2-agonists and anticholinergics. Both drugs exert similar effects in terms of bronchodilation but in the clinical use we observed that some patients reported a stable degree or even an increase of dyspnea after the administration of β2-agonists compared to anticholinergics....

Provider Recommendations for the HPV Vaccine: A Qualitative Study of Parent-Provider Interactions

Meers JM, Short MB, Zimet GD, Rosenthal SL and Auslander BA

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 30, 2017

HPV vaccination is recommended for all adolescents aged 11 and 12; however, parental hesitancy about HPV vaccination contributes to lower than anticipated rates of uptake. Recommendations from healthcare providers are associated with increased parental vaccine intentions and uptake, but many providers fail to deliver strong recommendations. We sought to describe provider-parent communications about HPV vaccination in a sample of vaccine-hesitant parents....
