  • Identification of a serum transglutaminase threshold value for the noninvasive diagnosis of symptomatic adult celiac disease patients: a retrospective study. Di Tola, Marco; Marino, Mariacatia; Goetze, Simone; Casale, Rossella; Di Nardi, Sara; Borghini, Raffaele; Donato, Giuseppe; Tiberti, Antonio; Picarelli, Antonio // Journal of Gastroenterology;Nov2016, Vol. 51 Issue 11, p1031 

    Background: A celiac disease (CD) diagnosis is based on duodenal histology, with the exception of children showing anti-tissue transglutaminase (anti-tTG) serum levels exceeding ten times the cut-off. Our aim was to reproduce this simplified approach in adults, identifying an anti-tTG threshold...

  • A Non-Invasive Method to Assess Cerebral Perfusion Pressure in Geriatric Patients with Suspected Cerebrovascular Disease. Liu, Bo; Li, Qi; Li, Kewei; Deng, Nan; He, Peng; Qin, Chunchang; Yang, Deyu; Li, Zhiwei; Xie, Peng // PLoS ONE;Mar2015, Vol. 10 Issue 3, p1 

    Background: Cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) can adversely impact cerebrovascular hemodynamics but cannot be practically measured in most clinical settings. Here, we aimed to establish a representative mathematical model for CPP in geriatric patients with suspected cerebrovascular disease....

  • Liver Stiffness by Transient Elastography Predicts Liver-Related Complications and Mortality in Patients with Chronic Liver Disease. Pang, Jack X. Q.; Zimmer, Scott; Niu, Sophia; Crotty, Pam; Tracey, Jenna; Pradhan, Faruq; Shaheen, Abdel Aziz M.; Coffin, Carla S.; Heitman, Steven J.; Kaplan, Gilaad G.; Swain, Mark G.; Myers, Robert P. // PLoS ONE;Apr2014, Vol. 9 Issue 4, p1 

    Background: Liver stiffness measurement (LSM) by transient elastography (TE, FibroScan) is a validated method for noninvasively staging liver fibrosis. Most hepatic complications occur in patients with advanced fibrosis. Our objective was to determine the ability of LSM by TE to predict hepatic...

    The article offers information on the study conducted by Cambridge Heart Inc. which investigates the predictive value of Microvolt T-Wave Alternans (MTWA) test in identifying patients at risk of Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD). It states that the company carried a prospective multi-center study of...

  • Reduced Oxygen Uptake Efficiency Slope in Patients with Cardiac Sarcoidosis. Ammenwerth, Wilhelm; Wurps, Henrik; Klemens, Mark A.; Crolow, Catharina; Schulz-Menger, Jeanette; Schönfeld, Nicolas; Bittner, Roland C.; Bauer, Torsten T. // PLoS ONE;Jul2014, Vol. 9 Issue 7, p1 

    Background: The non-invasive diagnosis of cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) is difficult. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) has become a very valuable diagnostic tool in patients with suspected CS, but usually a combination of different tests is used. Oxygen uptake efficiency slope (OUES) is a...

  • Abnormal Regional Homogeneity in Patients with Essential Tremor Revealed by Resting-State Functional MRI. Fang, Weidong; Lv, Fajin; Luo, Tianyou; Cheng, Oumei; Liao, Wei; Sheng, Ke; Wang, Xuefeng; Wu, Fei; Hu, Yida; Luo, Jing; Yang, Qing X.; Zhang, Han // PLoS ONE;Jul2013, Vol. 8 Issue 7, p1 

    Essential tremor (ET) is one of the most common movement disorders in human adults. It can be characterized as a progressive neurological disorder of which the most recognizable feature is a tremor of the arms or hands that is apparent during voluntary movements such as eating and writing. The...

  • Concordance in a World without a Gold Standard: A New Non-Invasive Methodology for Improving Accuracy of Fibrosis Markers. Poynard, Thierry; Ingiliz, Patrick; Elkrief, Laure; Munteanu, Mona; Lebray, Pascal; Morra, Rachel; Messous, Djamila; Bismut, Francoise Imbert; Roulot, Dominique; Benhamou, Yves; Thabut, Dominique; Ratziu, Vlad // PLoS ONE;2008, Vol. 3 Issue 12, p1 

    Background: Assessing liver fibrosis is traditionally performed by biopsy, an imperfect gold standard. Non-invasive techniques, liver stiffness measurements (LSM) and biomarkers [FibroTestH (FT)], are widely used in countries where they are available. The aim was to identify factors associated...

  • Predictive Factors for Reintubation following Noninvasive Ventilation in Patients with Respiratory Complications after Living Donor Liver Transplantation. Chihara, Yuichi; Egawa, Hiroto; Oga, Toru; Tsuboi, Tomomasa; Handa, Tomohiro; Yagi, Shintaro; Iida, Taku; Yoshizawa, Atsushi; Yamamoto, Kazuhiko; Mishima, Michiaki; Tanaka, Koichi; Uemoto, Shinji; Chin, Kazuo // PLoS ONE;Dec2013, Vol. 8 Issue 12, p1 

    Background: Postoperative respiratory complications are a major cause of mortality following liver transplantation (LT). Noninvasive ventilation (NIV) appears to be effective for respiratory complications in patients undergoing solid organ transplantation; however, mortality has been high in...

  • Investigation of Oncogenic Cooperation in Simple Liver-Specific Transgenic Mouse Models Using Noninvasive In Vivo Imaging. Ju, Hye-Lim; Ahn, Sang Hoon; Kim, Do Young; Baek, Sinhwa; Chung, Sook In; Seong, Jinsil; Han, Kwang-Hyub; Ro, Simon Weonsang // PLoS ONE;Mar2013, Vol. 8 Issue 3, p1 

    Liver cancer is a complex multistep process requiring genetic alterations in multiple proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. Although hundreds of genes are known to play roles in hepatocarcinogenesis, oncogenic collaboration among these genes is still largely unknown. Here, we report a...
