Neutrophil to Lymphocyte Ratio as a Predictor of Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in Patients with Newly Diagnosed Hypertension

Abdulmecit Afsin, Ramazan Asoglu, Ertugrul Kurtoglu and Hakan Kaya

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: August 05, 2019

Concentric or eccentric left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is an independent prognostic factor of major cardiovascular events in hypertension (HT). A high neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is correlated with high mortality and poor prognosis in cardiovascular disease. This study was performed to investigate the associations between NLR and different left ventricular (LV) geometric patterns in patients with newly diagnosed HT....

Optimise: An Austrian Multicentre Study on the Effectiveness and Safety of Tocilizumab in Combination with Methotrexate versus Tocilizumab for Mild/Moderate Rheumatoid Arthritis and an Inadequate Response to Methotrexate

Burkhard F Leeb, Raimund Lunzer, Peter Fasching, Manfred Herold, Omid Zamani, Ute Riedlmair, Wolfgang Schimetta and Winfried B Graninger

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: August 03, 2019

As data on the efficacy of biologics in patients with mild/moderate rheumatoid arthritis are limited, this study was performed to assess the efficacy and safety of tocilizumab plus methotrexate versus tocilizumab monotherapy on disease activity. Additional tocilizumab treatment led to improvement in patients with mild/moderate rheumatoid arthritis. The study results give no indication that the combination of Tocilizumab with Methotrexate induces a better outcome (preserving the level of disease activity achieved at week 12) in comparison with Tocilizumab monotherapy in patients corresponding t...

Health Care Delivery in India - SWOT Analyses

S. Anuradha and Dhastagir Sultan Sheriff

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: August 02, 2019

Healthcare in India is undergoing a change that will meet the demands of the citizens from the village to the metropolitan city level. The National Health policy announced in 2017 is focused on "wellness" of patients and guarantees healthcare with suitable insurance to cover from primary to tertiary care. Ayushman Bharat Mission is a policy that promotes healthcare with a center-state co-operation. Program Indra Dhanush aims to cover immunization of children in rural and urban areas including those who were not covered in the previous program like Pulse Polio....

Examination of the Relationship of Asymptomatic Swallowing Disorder Prevalence with Hypertension, Diabetes and Obesity in Elderly Population

Arif YUKSEL, Can Ahmet KULAN, Rifat Reha BILGIN, Yaprak Ozum UNSAL, Nuri YURTMAN , Fehmi AKCICEK and Hatice ULUER

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: August 02, 2019

As one gets older, some changes occur in swallowing mechanisms. The non-symptomatic swallowing disorders associated with aging for no reason are called presbyphagia. Whether or not presbyphagia has any cause other than the mechanisms of aging is not clear. In our study, we investigated the association of presbyphagia with hypertension, diabetes, and obesity. Early detection of presbyphagia is important, and it is also important to reveal its association with common diseases encountered in society. Early diagnosis of the elderly presenting with presbyphagia who carry the risk for dysphagia is o...

Acute Cognitive Effects of Physical Activity for People who have Dementia

Jordan Elliott-King, Elizabeth Peel and Eef Hogervorst

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: August 01, 2019

Physical activity has the potential to improve cognition for those with dementia, as demonstrated by randomised controlled trials lasting at least 6 weeks. Research is yet to explore the acute cognitive effects of physical activity for people with dementia. Acute resistance physical activity with healthy late-middle aged individuals has been shown to facilitate general cognition, as well as benefit executive function specifically. This study therefore aimed to establish if people with dementia experience cognitive benefits from acute resistance physical activity over and above a social control...

Hyperchromic and Erythematous Pityriasis: Case Report and Review of the Literature

Medina Andrade Luis Angel, MD, Laura Guadalupe Medina Andrade, MD, Lizbeth Elisa Oropeza Lopez, MD, Andrea Marianne Rodriguez Valencia, MD, Haizel Valencia Romero, MD, Angel Adrian Moreno Pina, MD, Araceli Esteban Chaparro, MD, and Alberto Robles Mendez Hernandez, MD

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: July 31, 2019

Pityriasis versicolor is a superficial fungal infection of the skin, characterized by pigmentary changes secondary to the colonization of the stratum corneum by a lipophilic dimorphic fungus known as Malassezia sp. Of this genus, 7 species known as the causative agent of pityriasis versicolor, the most frequently isolated species is M. Globosa. This skin disease occurs worldwide but predominates in the tropical, warm, and humid climate. Malassezia sp classified as dimorphic fungi since it behaves as yeast in crops but is capable of producing filaments in its parasitic form....

Urban Ambient Air Pollution and Behavioural Disorders

Mieczysław Szyszkowicz

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: July 30, 2019

Urban ambient air pollution is identified as a risk factor for cardiovascular and respiratory morbidity and mortality. There is growing evidence suggesting associations between air pollution and a wide range of additional negative health conditions. The existing literature supports the association between exposure to ambient air pollutants and brain health. Among such reported effects are increased incidence of neurological and psychiatric disorders including cognitive decline, anxiety, depression, drug abuse, and suicide...

Performance of Three Prognostic Models in Critically Ill Patients with Cancer: A Prospective Study

Frank D Martos-Benitez, PhD, MD, Hilev Larrondo-Muguercia, MD, David Leon-Perez, MD, Juan C Rivero-Lopez, MD, Versis Orama-Requejo, MD and Jorge L Martinez-Alfonso, MD

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: July 17, 2019

Predicting mortality is one of the greatest challenges for critical care physicians. Severity scoring systems integrate clinical data to estimate the probability of death, which can be used to facilitate resource utilization or continuing quality improvement and to stratify patients for clinical research. Prospective validation in different populations of critically ill patients improves the applicability of the model to these settings. Furthermore, the performance of a prognostic score must be evaluated prior to being used in a particular subgroup of patients....
