@rini The work shows it's possible to manage IBD with something besides antibiotics, which are less specific, can cause side effects, and likely trigger bacterial resistance.

A Novel Target to Improve Outcomes in Late-Life Depression?
A new study sheds light on the neurologic underpinnings of late-life depression (LLD) with apathy and its frequently poor response to treatment. Investigators headed by Faith Gunning, PhD, of the Institute of Geriatric Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, analyzed baseline and posttreatment brain MRIs and functional MRIs (fMRIs) of older adults with depression who participated in a 12-week open-label nonrandomized clinical trial of escitalopram. Participants had undergone clinical and cognitive assessments.
RE: Longer Use of Proton Pump Inhibitors Tied to Diabetes Risk
@palash Ultimately, there do not seem to be enough data to support a change in clinical practice from this study alone and, as a result, clinicians should continue to inform patients of the best available evidence regarding the benefits and risks of PPIs.
RE: Calcium Scores Predict Sudden-Death Risk in Preclinical CAD in Large Cohort Study
@nakul The study's 66,636 primary-prevention patients, part of the Coronary Artery Calcium Consortium observational cohort, were without known coronary disease at enrolment, from 1991 to 2010, at four major American centers. They had been referred to CAC imaging because of the presence of at least one ASCVD risk factor, such as dyslipidemia, family history of premature heart disease, hypertension, or diabetes, the researchers note.
Etiology of Allergic Fungal Sinusitis?
Over the past few decades, allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS) has become increasingly defined. Historically mistaken for a paranasal sinus tumor, allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS) now is believed to be an allergic reaction to aerosolized environmental fungi, usually of the dematiaceous species, in an immunocompetent host. This is in contrast to invasive fungal infections that affect immunocompromised hosts, such as patients with diabetes mellitus and patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Most patients with allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS) have a history of allergic rhinitis, and the exact timing of allergic fungal sinusitis (AFS) development can be difficult to discern. Thick fungal debris and mucin, as shown below, are developed in the sinus cavities and must be surgically removed so that the inciting allergen is no longer present.
