Neck muscle cross-sectional area, brain volume and cognition in healthy older men; a cohort study
Conclusions: In healthy older men, preservation of whole brain volume (i.e. less atrophy) is associated with larger muscle size. Longitudinal ageing studies are now required to investigate these relationships further.

The brain-in-motion study: effect of a 6-month aerobic exercise intervention on cerebrovascular regulation and cognitive function in older adults
Background: Aging and physical inactivity are associated with declines in some cognitive domains and cerebrovascular function, as well as an elevated risk of cerebrovascular disease and other morbidities. With the increase in the number of sedentary older Canadians, promoting healthy brain aging is becoming an increasingly important population health issue. Emerging research suggests that higher levels of physical fitness at any age are associated with better cognitive functioning and this may be mediated, at least in part, by improvements in cerebrovascular reserve. We are currently conducting a study to determine: if a s...

Do the digestive tract symptoms in eating disorder patients represent functional gastrointestinal disorders?
Conclusions: The GI symptoms common in eating disorder patients very likely represent the same FGIDs that occur in non-ED patients. Symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction in the absence of functional constipation, however, are prominent in eating disorder patients. Further investigation of the items comprising the 'pelvic floor dysfunction' factor in other patient populations may yield useful results.

Trace gluten contamination may play a role in mucosal and clinical recovery in a subgroup of diet-adherent non-responsive celiac disease patients
Conclusions: The GCED may be an effective therapeutic option for GFD-adherent NRCD patients. Response to this diet identifies a subgroup of patients, previously classified as RCD1, that is not truly refractory to dietary treatment. Preventing an inaccurate diagnosis of RCD1 avoids immunotherapy. Most patients are able to return to a traditional GFD without return of symptoms.

Latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) in Asians: similarities and differences between east and west
Abstract Diabetes is a continuous spectrum with type 1 diabetes (T1D) in one end and type 2 diabetes (T2D) in the other end. Latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) is T‐cell mediated autoimmune diabetes with the features of both T1D and T2D and in the middle of the diabetes spectrum. Scientists clash on the question of whether this subtype of diabetes is a unique diabetes subtype. Multicenter studies were carried out in different countries including National Diabetes Program (KNDP) collaboratory Group in Korea, Ehime study in Japan, Not Insulin‐Requiring Autoimmune Diabetes (NIRAD) Study in Italy, Nord‐Trøndela...

Implications of new European Union driving regulations on patients with Type 1 diabetes who participated in the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial
ConclusionsMore than one episode of severe hypoglycaemia within a year was a frequent event in subjects in the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial, especially in intensively treated patients. If applied to current practice, improving road safety through these changes to European Union regulations could have a substantial impact on drivers who have Type 1 diabetes. This emphasizes the need to take into account the potential effects of severe hypoglycaemia in those who rely on a driving licence.

Synthesis, Cytotoxicity, and Apoptosis Induction Study of Antitumor Dinuclear Platinum(II) Complexes
Abstract Five novel dinuclear platinum(II) complexes with a new chiral ligand, 3‐(2‐amino‐cyclohexylamino)‐propionic acid (HP), were designed, prepared and spectrally characterized. The in vitro cytotoxicities of these compounds were evaluated against the HepG‐2, MCF‐7, A549, and HCT‐116 cell lines. The results indicated that all compounds showed cytotoxicity towards the HepG‐2 cell line. Particularly, complex X5, which has SO as a bridge, exhibited better cytotoxicity than carboplatin or oxaliplatin against all selected cell lines. Moreover, double dyeing flow cytometric resection indicated that the target...

Synthesis and Evaluation of 1,ω‐Bis(1,2,3,5‐thiatriazol‐5‐yl)alkanes as In Vitro and In Vivo α‐Amylase and Lipase Inhibitors
Abstract Thionyl chloride reacts with 1,ω‐bis‐(1‐tosylamidrazone)alkanes 1 to give a series of 1,ω‐bis‐(4‐alkyl‐2‐tosyl‐1,2,3,5‐thiatriazol‐5‐yl)alkanes 2. All the newly synthesized compounds were characterized by IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, elemental analysis, and ESI–MS spectral data. All the new compounds were screened for their inhibitory effect on key enzymes related to diabetes and obesity, such as α‐amylase and lipase. In vitro and in vivo studies revealed that these thiatriazole derivatives exert an inhibitory action against these key enzymes. Moreover the administration of these compounds t...

Safety and effectiveness of ustekinumab and antitumour necrosis factor therapy in patients with psoriasis and chronic viral hepatitis B or C: a retrospective, multicentre study in a clinical setting
Conclusions Biologic therapy was effective and safe for the majority of our patients with HCV and HBV infection, although there may be a risk of reactivation or aggravation. We describe the first cases to receive ustekinumab. The use of biologics should be limited to those cases in which the risk–benefit ratio is justified.

Platelet activation: A link between psoriasis per se and subclinical atherosclerosis; Case‐control study
ConclusionOur study showed increased atherosclerosis risk in psoriatic patients; particularly those with moderate/severe disease, as evidenced by increased expression of platelet CD62 compared with healthy controls. Moreover, we found positive correlation between CD62 expression and ARD (another possible marker of atherosclerosis) with positive correlation to Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) score; the most important factor influencing CD62 expression. However, our data as regard MPV and FMD does not support using either to diagnose subclinical atherosclerosis in psoriatics, for further studies.

Discoid Lupus Alopecia Complicated by Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia on a Background of AGA
Abstract Madam, The cicatricial alopecias have been the subject of much debate regarding their correct classification based on clinical and histopathological features. Discoid cutaneous lupus erythematosus (DLE) and lichenplanopilaris (LPP) are amongst the most common forms of scarring alopecia. These entities may be difficult to distinguish both clinically and histologically and the finding of corroboratory skin lesions elsewhere on the body is seen as a strong pointer towards the correct diagnosis.

No genetic support for a contribution of prostaglandins to the aetiology of androgenetic alopecia
Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is a common age‐dependent trait, characterised by a progressive loss of hair from the scalp. The hair loss may commence during puberty and up to 80% of Caucasian men experience some degree of AGA throughout their lifetime1. Research has established that two essential aetiological factors for AGA are a genetic predisposition and the presence of androgens (male sex hormones)1,2. A recent meta‐analysis of genome‐wide association studies (GWAS) has increased the number of identified loci associated with this trait at the molecular level to a total of eight3

Autosomal recessive isolated familial acanthosis nigricans in a Pakistani family due to a homozygous mutation in the insulin receptor gene
Acanthosis nigricans (AN) is characterized by non‐inflamed, thick, brown‐black pigmentation of the epidermis of the neck, dorsal hands and feet, axilla, umbilicus, knees, and elbows. It has been reported in both inherited as well as acquired forms (e.g., as a paraneoplastic syndrome). Most cases of AN have been described in association with insulin resistance syndromes and fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) mutations. However, it also occurs as a symptom of diverse syndromes, including leprechaunism, Rabson‐Mendenhall syndrome, and thanatophoric dysplasia

Eyebrow alopecia: Centrofacial trichoblastomatosis
We report the case of a 21‐year‐old caucasian female who presented to our clinic complaining about progressive, bilateral eyebrow loss which had been developing for the previous 18 months. Even though the patient was otherwise asymptomatic, she admitted a cosmetic concern. Her past medical history as well as that of her family were both unremarkable. She had been diagnosed with folliculitis by her general practitioner, having been placed on minocycline 100mg daily during 3 months to no avail. On physical examination, skin‐colored papules on both medial thirds of her eyebrows could be observed.
