Purpose Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is a potentially fatal hypermetabolic condition triggered by certain anesthetics and caused by defective calcium homeostasis in skeletal muscle cells. Recent evidence has revealed impairment of various biochemical pathways in MH-susceptible patients in the absence of anesthetics. We hypothesized that clinical differences between MH-susceptible and control individuals are reflected in measurable differences in myoplasmic metabolites. Methods We performed metabolomic profiling of skeletal muscle samples from MH-negative (control) individuals and MH-susceptible patients undergoing muscle biopsy for diagnosis of MH susceptibility. Cellular metabolites were extracted from 33 fresh and 87 frozen human muscle samples using solid phase microextraction and Metabolon (R) untargeted biochemical profiling platforms, respectively. Ultra-performance liquid chromatography-high resolution mass spectrometry was used for metabolite identification and validation, followed by analysis of differences in metabolites between the MH-susceptible and MH-negative groups. Results Significant fold-change differences between the MH-susceptible and control groups in metabolites from various pathways were found (P value range: 0.009 to < 0.001). These included accumulation of long chain acylcarnitines, diacylglycerols, phosphoenolpyruvate, histidine pathway metabolites, lysophosphatidylcholine, oxidative stress markers, and phosphoinositols, as well as decreased levels of monoacylglycerols. The results from both analytical platforms were in agreement. Conclusion This metabolomics study indicates a shift from utilization of carbohydrates towards lipids for energy production in MH-susceptible individuals. This shift may result in inefficiency of beta-oxidation, and increased muscle protein turnover, oxidative stress, and/or lysophosphatidylcholine levels.

Background: Marfan syndrome (MS), a connective tissue disorder that affects ocular, skeletal, and cardiovascular systems, is caused by heterozygous pathogenic variants in FBN1. To date, over 1800 different pathogenic variants have been reported.

Comparative data on the mechanical properties of epidural catheters used clinically are not available. We performed a controlled laboratory investigation to assess the mechanical performance of three different intact or traumatized catheter types (Polyurethane, clear nylon, and radiopaque nylon catheters, designed for 18-gauge Tuohy needles). We studied a control (intact) and two trauma groups (needle bevel and surgical blade). Catheters were loaded to their breaking points by using a Lloyd LS500 material t...
Etiology of senile osteoporosis - A hypothesis
Atik, O. Sahap; Uslu, M. Murad; Eksioglu, Fatih; Satana, Tolgay (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2006-02-01)
Osteoporosis is a major health problem characterized by compromised bone strength predisposing patients to an increased risk of fracture. It may cause morbidity and mortality in elderly men and women. The etiologic factors that lead to senile osteoporosis still are unclear.

Aim:Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is an inherited, autosomal recessive neuromuscular disease that causes high morbidity and mortality. The prevalence is 1-2/100,000, while the incidence is 1/6000-1/10,000 among live births. Due to the high carrier frequency (1/40-1/60) of SMA, screening can prevent new cases. The aim of the current study was to present the development of a new, quantitative, real-time, polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based screening test that uses an intelligent ratio (IR) for analyses, as ...

This study investigated the immunohistochemical staining characteristics of glutathione-S-transferase alpha, pi, mu, theta and p53 in non-small cell lung carcinoma and normal lung tissue from 50 patients. The relationships between expressions of the Glutathione-S-transferase isoenzymes and some clinicopathological features were also examined. Expression of glutathione-S-transferase pi, mu, alpha, theta and p53 was assessed by immunohistochemistry for primary lung carcinomas of 50 patients from the Sanitariu...
