Abstract Aims We evaluated the association between type 2 diabetes and gout by a retrospective cohort study. Methods Data of 17,259 male and 18,318 female patients with type 2 diabetes were retrieved for the 1998–2010 period. These patients were matched to a comparison group (n = 34,518 and n = 36,636, respectively) in a 1:2 ratio by age and region. Results We found that patients with type 2 diabetes after adjustment for hyperlipidemia and hypertension had a lower risk of incident gout than the ...

Glioma is characterized by a high heterogeneity in the brain tumor. Abundant tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) exist as neoplastic tissues, implicating tumor plasticity and thus leading to therapeutic challenges. Vascular adhesion protein (VAP-1) potentially serves as a mediator for TAM immunity in tumor milieu. We previously demonstrated that VAP-1 could contribute to tumor malignancy, but its characteristics in TAM immunity of glioma progression are still unclear. This study explored the ass...

Hyponatremia has been shown to be associated with prognosis in various cancers, but its role in upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) is largely unidentified. We created an international multiregional cohort of UTUC, consisting of 524 and 213 patients from Taiwan and the U.S., to validate the significance of hyponatremia. Clinicopathologic characteristics were compared according to the presence of hyponatremia. Univariate and multivariate Cox regression models were used to investigate the asso...

PURPOSE: Inconsistent prognostic implications of body mass index (BMI) in upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) have been reported across different ethnicities. In this study, we aimed to analyze the oncologic role of BMI in Asian and Caucasian patients with UTUC. METHODS: We retrospectively collected data from 648 Asian Taiwanese and 213 Caucasian American patients who underwent radical nephroureterectomy for UTUC. We compared clinicopathologic features among groups categorized by different B...

OBJECTIVE: This study investigated the prevalence of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) in Taiwanese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). METHODS: This retrospective observational study was conducted with a random sample of patients from the entire population of National Health Insurance enrollees during 2000-2010 and used ICD-9-CM diagnostic codes to identify T2DM patients and GAD. The prevalence of GAD was compared between T2DM patients and the general population. RESULTS: Between 20...

Background Stroke is a leading cause of death, morbidity and disability worldwide. Infection is a common complication in the acute phase after stroke. Herpes zoster is a common viral disease, in which the most debilitating complication is post-herpetic neuralgia, which can have a very large negative impact on quality of life. The aim of this study was to investigate whether stroke increases the risk of herpes zoster. Methods This cohort study compared patients who had herpes zoster with and with...

BACKGROUND: Cigarette smoking in women is raising a public health problem. The X-linked monoamine oxidase A (MAOA) was considered as a susceptibility gene to substance abuse of tobacco, but the evolutionary effect of MAOA may lead to a positive or negative association between genetic variations and smoking development among study regions. METHODS: Based on linkage disequilibrium (LD), we performed a haplotype-based association to explore the effect of MAOA gene on women's smoking risk in a case-...

(1) Background: Knee osteoarthritis causes pain, weakness, muscle atrophy, and disability. The application of whole-body vibration in patients with knee osteoarthritis can improve strength, balance, and functional activities. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effects of early whole-body vibration intervention in patients after total knee arthroplasty. (2) Method: A single-blinded randomized control trial. Fifty-two patients with knee osteoarthritis post total knee replacement from a me...

Abstract Psoriasis is associated with certain psychiatric disorders such as anxiety and depression. Although a growing body of literature has indicated high prevalence of anxiety in patients with psoriasis, it is unclear if the incidence of anxiety is correlated with severity of psoriasis. In this article, we hypothesize that anxiety is not correlated with severity of psoriasis, and therefore the issue of anxiety should not be neglected in patients with mild psoriasis. To testify this hypothesis...

Abstract Background Bavachin is a natural product isolated from Psoralea corylifolia L. that has been applied as a traditional medicine in Asian countries. However, the anti-inflammatory effects of bavachin on LPS-induced inflammation and NLRP3 inflammasome activation by macrophages remain unclear. Purpose We investigated the anti-inflammatory effects of bavachin on LPS-activated murine macrophage cell line J774A.1 cells and murine peritoneal macrophages. Methods J774A.1 cells and murine periton...
