Abstract

Ocular involvement in panarteritis nodosa (PAN) has been reported to occur in 10 to 20% of patients. In 3 patients with acute visual disturbance we point out unusual findings. Case 1. A 40-year-old man initially presented with papilledema together with partial optic atrophy in both eyes...read more

Peripheral nervous system diseases cover a wide spectrum of disease affecting the peripheral nerves, with the most common being diabetic neuropathy. Discover the latest research on peripheral nervous system diseases here.

Cachexia & Brown Fat

Cachexia is a condition associated with progressive weight loss due to severe illness. In cancer patients, it is proposed to occur as a result of tumor-induced energy wasting. Several proteins have been implicated in browning and depletion of white adipose tissue. Here is the latest research on cachexia and brown fat.

Neural Circuitry & Cachexia

Cytokines released during inflammation and malignancy act on the central nervous system to alter the release and function of a number of neurotransmitters, thereby altering both appetite and metabolic rate, leading to the rise of cachexia. Discover the latest research on neural circuitry and cachexia here

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease is extremely prevalent in western societies and is the number one cause of morbidity and mortality industrialized countries. Known risk factors include hypertension, smoking and dyslipidemia. Discover the latest research on coronary artery disease here.

Blockade of the melanocortin-3 receptor (mc3-r) leads to enhanced disease-associated cachexia. Discover the latest research on mc3-r and cachexia here.

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Pulmonary arterial hypertension refers to the high blood pressure in the arteries that go from the heart ot the lungs. Here is the latest research.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Cachexia is a prevalent pathological condition associated with several diseases and morbidities, such as chronic heart failure. Discover the latest research on disease cachexia here.

Retinal Development: Genetics

This feed focuses on genetic, epigenetic, and transcriptomic processes pertaining to retinal development and aging.

Cardiac Cachexia

Cardiac cachexia is a syndrome associated with the progressive loss of muscle and fat mass. It most commonly affects patients with heart failure and can significantly decrease the quality of life and survival in these patients. Here is the latest research on cardiac cachexia.

Retinal Development And Aging: Genetics

This feed focuses on genetic, epigenetic, and transcriptomic processes pertaining to retinal development and aging. Here is the latest research.

Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension results in increased pulmonary arterial pressures and pulmonary vascular resistance, commonly from cardiac and respiratory diseases. As a result of the structural and functional changes, right heart failure can occur, leading to premature death. Here is the latest research on pulmonary hypertension.

Coronary Artery Aneurysm

Coronary artery aneurysms are the dilation of the coronary arteries that supply the heart tissue with blood and nutrients. The dilation exceeds 1.5 times the normal artery size. Complications can occur if these aneurysms rupture. Here is the latest research on coronary artery aneurysms.
