Urine steroid metabolomics for the differential diagnosis of adrenal incidentalomas in the EURINE-ACT study: a prospective test validation study

An unenhanced CT tumour attenuation cutoff of 20 HU should replace that of 10 HU for exclusion of ACC. A triple test strategy of tumour diameter, imaging characteristics, and urine steroid metabolomics improves detection of ACC, which could shorten time to surgery for patients with ACC and help to avoid unnecessary surgery in patients with benign tumours.

A multi-test strategy for adrenal tumours

Broadening access to technology and its rapid evolution have transformed clinical care over the past half century. CT and MRI became widely available around 1980, and performance has steadily improved since. Incidental adrenal nodules were detected in only 0·4% of patients undergoing CT scans in the mid to late 1980s, but cross-sectional imaging studies now detect adrenal incidentalomas at least…

¿Por qué ahora los CDC dicen que las personas expuestas al covid-19 sin síntomas no deben hacerse la prueba?

“Van a disminuir los casos porque se harán menos pruebas, pero eso no reflejará la cantidad de contagios en el país”, dijo el médico Ricardo Correa, de la Universidad de Arizona. Por otro lado, el doctor Carlos del Río, del Departamento de Enfermedades Infecciosas de la Universidad de Emory, dice que con la medida EEUU decide solo detectar los enfermos y no preocuparse de la transmisión de la…

Hyperglycemia, high or low BMI risk factors for COVID-19 death in people with diabetes

Hyperglycemia, underweight or obesity and previous cardiovascular and renal complications could put people with diabetes at higher risk for COVID-19-related death, according to a study published in The Lancet Diabetes Endocrinology. “Diabetes, cardiovascular disease and hypertension are the most common chronic comorbidities in people with severe COVID-19,” Jonathan Valabhji, BSc,

Triple combination therapy may be optimal for CV protection in type 2 diabetes

Triple therapy combining an SGLT2 inhibitor, a GLP-1 receptor agonist and the thiazolidinedione pioglitazone could serve as an optimal solution for cardiovascular and renal protection in type 2 diabetes, according to a speaker.The impact of triple therapy on CV outcomes remains difficult to discern; there are no randomized controlled trial data on combination therapy assessing outcomes, Ralph A.
