Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are innate immune receptors that mediate the inflammatory response in diabetes mellitus (DM). The aim of this study is to evaluate the association of TLR2 and TLR9 gene polymorphism in patients with type 2 DM (T2DM) and diabetic foot (DF).The study included 90 subjects divided into group I (30 patients with T2DM and DF), group II (30 patients with T2DM and no evidence of DF), and group III (normal control subjects). TLR2 (1350 T/C, rs3804100) and TLR9 (1237 T/C, rs5743836) genotyping was performed by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) technique for all subjects.There was a statistically significant difference in the distribution of TLR9-1237 T/C genotypes between groups I and II (P < .029) as well as between groups I and III (P < .001). Calculated risk estimation revealed that TLR9-1237 polymorphism conferred almost 20 times increased risk of DF disorders in T2DM (OR = 20, 95% CI = 5.38-74.30). There was no statistical difference in the distribution of TLR2-1350T/C genotypes between the 3 groups.TLR9-1237 T/C gene polymorphism may be considered as a molecular risk for DF among patients with T2DM.

Guru, "Gynecological organ involvement at robot-assisted radical cystectomy in females: Is anterior exenteration necessary?", Canadian Urological Association journal = Journal de l'Association des urologues du Canada, 2018 May 14. Abstract

INTRODUCTION: We aimed to investigate patient and disease variables associated with gynecological organ invasion in females with bladder cancer at the time of robot-assisted radical cystectomy (RARC).

METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of female patients who underwent robot-assisted anterior pelvic exenteration (RAAE) between 2005 and 2016. Patients were divided into two groups: those with gynecological organ involvement at RAAE and those without. Data were reviewed for perioperative and pathological outcomes. Kaplan-Meier method was used to depict survival outcomes. Multivariable stepwise regression analysis was performed to identify predictors of gynecological organ involvement.

RESULTS: A total of 118 female patients were identified; 17 (14%) showed evidence of gynecological organ invasion at RAAE. Patients with gynecological organ invasion had more lymphovascular invasion at transurethral resection of bladder tumour (TURBT) (82% vs. 46%; p=0.006), trigonal tumours at TURBT (59% vs. 18%; p=0.001), multifocal disease (65% vs. 33%; p=0.01), pN+ (71% vs. 22%; p<0.001), positive surgical margins (24% vs. 4%; p=0.02), and they less commonly demonstrated pure urothelial carcinoma at TURBT (18% vs. 66%; p<0.001). On multivariate analysis, significant predictors of gynecological organ invasion were pN positive disease (odds ratio [OR] 6.48; 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.64-25.51; p=0.008), trigonal tumour location (OR 5.72; 95% CI 1.39-23.61; p=0.02), and presence of variant histology (OR18.52; 95% CI 3.32-103.4; p=0.001).

CONCLUSIONS: Patients with trigonal tumours, variant histology, and nodal involvement are more likely to have gynecological organs invasion at RAAE. This information may help improve counselling of patients and better identify candidates for gynecological organ-sparing cystectomy.

White, K., M. S. M. Issac, C. Kamoun, J. Leygues, and S. Cohn, "The THRIVE model: A framework and review of internal and external predictors of coping with chronic illness.", Health psychology open, vol. 5, issue 2, pp. 2055102918793552, 2018. Abstract

This article explores the ways in which people cope with social and clinical dimensions of their chronic conditions. Existing literature was reviewed to categorize factors identified as being key. They were sorted into six groupings which are reflected by the acronym THRIVE: therapeutic interventions, habit and routine, relational-social, individual differences, values and beliefs, and emotional factors. We found little evidence to suggest different conditions prompt unique coping responses; rather, a range of common factors were observed across diverse conditions. The THRIVE framework not only summarizes current literature but provides a starting point for further research and development of future interventions.
