Heavy-load exercise in older adults activates vasculogenesis and has a stronger impact on muscle gene expression than in young adults

Kaare M. Gautvik, Ole K. Olstad, Ulrika Raue, Vigdis T. Gautvik, Karl J. Kvernevik, Tor P. Utheim, Solveig Ravnum, Camilla Kirkegaard, Håvard Wiig, Garan Jones, Luke C. Pilling, Scott Trappe, Truls Raastad & Sjur Reppe
Abstract Background A striking effect of old age is the involuntary loss of muscle mass and strength leading to sarcopenia and reduced physiological functions. However, effects of heavy-load exercise in older adults on diseases and functions as predicted by changes in muscle gene expression have been inadequately studied. Methods Thigh muscle global transcriptional activity (transcriptome) was analyzed in cohorts of older and younger adults before and after 12–13 weeks heavy-load strength exercise using Affymetrix microarrays....

Newborn resuscitation simulation training and changes in clinical performance and perinatal outcomes: a clinical observational study of 10,481 births

May Sissel Vadla, Robert Moshiro, Paschal Mdoe, Joar Eilevstjønn, Jan Terje Kvaløy, Barikiel Hhando Hhoki & Hege Ersdal
Abstract Background Annually, 1.5 million intrapartum-related deaths occur; fresh stillbirths and early newborn deaths. Most of these deaths are preventable with skilled ventilation starting within the first minute of life. Helping Babies Breathe is an educational program shown to improve simulated skills in newborn resuscitation. However, translation into clinical practice remains a challenge. The aim was to describe changes in clinical resuscitation and perinatal outcomes (i.e., fresh stillbirths and 24-h newborn deaths) after introducing a...

Men’s perception of information and psychological distress in the diagnostic phase of prostate cancer: a comparative mixed methods study

Maja Elisabeth Juul Søndergaard, Kirsten Lode, Sissel Eikeland Husebø, Ingvild Dalen & Svein Reidar Kjosavik
Abstract Background Previous studies indicate that men experience frustration and uncertainty when confronted with an elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA) test and during further diagnostics for prostate cancer. The novel Stockholm3 test is an algorithm-based test that combines plasma protein biomarkers, genetic markers and clinical variables in predicting the risk of PCa. The test was introduced in a western part of Norway as a new tool for detecting prostate cancer. This study aimed to explore...

Acute mesenteric ischemia: updated guidelines of the World Society of Emergency Surgery

Abu-Zidan, Edoardo Picetti, Luca Ansaloni, Goran Augustin, Walter L. Biffl, Marco Ceresoli, Osvaldo Chiara, Massimo Chiarugi, Raul Coimbra, Yunfeng Cui, Dimitris Damaskos, Salomone Di Saverio, Joseph M. Galante, Vladimir Khokha, Andrew W. Kirkpatrick, Kenji Inaba … & Ernest E. Moore
Abstract Acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) is a group of diseases characterized by an interruption of the blood supply to varying portions of the intestine, leading to ischemia and secondary inflammatory changes. If untreated, this process may progress to life-threatening intestinal necrosis. The incidence is low, estimated at 0.09–0.2% of all acute surgical admissions, but increases with age. Although the entity is an uncommon cause of abdominal pain, diligence is required because if untreated, mortality remains...
