Physical activity and cancer-specific mortality in the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study cohort.
Int. J. Cancer
PUBLISHED: 08-19-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Higher physical activity levels have been associated with a lower risk of developing various cancers and all-cancer mortality, but the impact of pre-diagnosis physical activity on cancer-specific death has not been fully characterized. In the prospective National Institutes of Health-AARP Diet and Health Study with 293,511 men and women, we studied prediagnosis moderate to vigorous intensity leisure time physical activity (MVPA) in the past 10 years and cancer-specific mortality. Over a median 12.1 years, we observed 15,001 cancer deaths. Using Cox proportional hazards regression, we estimated hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for MVPA with cancer mortality overall and by 20 specific cancer sites, adjusting for relevant risk factors. Compared to participants reporting never/rare MVPA, those reporting >7 hr/week MVPA had a lower risk of total cancer mortality (HR?=?0.89, 95% CI 0.84-0.94; p-trend <0.001). When analyzed by cancer site-specific deaths, comparing those reporting >7 hr/week of MVPA to those reporting never/rare MVPA, we observed a lower risk of death from colon (HR?=?0.70; 95% CI 0.57-0.85; p-trend <0.001), liver (0.71; 0.52-0.98; p-trend?=?0.012) and lung cancer (0.84; 0.77-0.92; p-trend <0.001) and a significant p-trend for non-Hodgkins lymphoma (0.80; 0.62-1.04; p-trend?=?0.017). An unexpected increased mortality p-trend with increasing MVPA was observed for death from kidney cancer (1.42; 0.98-2.03; p-trend?=?0.016). Our findings suggest that higher prediagnosis leisure time physical activity is associated with lower risk of overall cancer mortality and mortality from multiple cancer sites. Future studies should confirm observed associations and further explore timing of physical activity and underlying biological mechanisms.

Anthropometric measures and physical activity and the risk of lung cancer in never-smokers: a prospective cohort study.
PLoS ONE

Hide Abstract
Worldwide, lung cancer in never-smokers is ranked the seventh most common cause of cancer death; however, the etiology of lung cancer in never-smokers is unclear. We investigated associations for body mass index (BMI) at various ages, waist circumference, hip circumference, and physical activity with lung cancer in 158,415 never-smokers of the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study. Multivariable hazard ratios (HR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were estimated from Cox proportional hazards models. Over 11 years of follow-up, 532 lung cancer cases occurred. The risk estimate for obese (BMI ? 30 kg/m(2)) participants at baseline was 1.21 (95%CI = 0.95-1.53) relative to those with a normal BMI between 18.5 ? BMI<25.0. Overweight (25.0 ? BMI<30.0) at age 18 (HR(overweight-vs-normal) = 1.51;95%CI = 1.01-2.26) and time spent sitting (HR(? 3 hrs-vs-<3 hrs) = 1.32;95%CI = 1.00-1.73) was each associated with lung cancer after adjustment for baseline BMI, as was waist (HR(Q4-vs-Q1) = 1.75;95%CI = 1.09-2.79) and hip circumference (HRQ4-vs-Q1 = 0.62;95%CI = 0.39-0.99), after mutual adjustment for each other and baseline BMI. No associations were observed for vigorous activity or television watching. In summary, using a large prospective cohort study, we found no evidence that BMI at baseline or middle age was associated with decreased lung cancer risk in never smokers. If anything, we observed some evidence for positive associations with a larger BMI or waist circumference.

Autopsy features of sudden death due to isolated eosinophilic coronary arteritis: report of two cases.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Isolated eosinophilic coronary arteritis (IECA) has been reported as a cause of sudden unexpected death and has recently been recognized as a newly emerging vasculitic disease. We identified eight case reports and two case series of sudden death due to IECA in the medical literature and we present two new cases of sudden death due to IECA. Our cases further support the proposition that IECA may be a newly emerging distinct vasculitis, which can go undiagnosed and present with sudden death. At autopsy IECA presents with isolated non-necrotizing predominantly eosinophilic inflammation of the coronary arteries without vasculitis in any other organ or blood vessel. The mean age of death of our two cases and the previously reported cases of IECA is 47 years, comprising 13 females and 3 males with a range of 34-64 years. All cases died suddenly and unexpectedly. Past medical history of recurrent chest pain was documented in 63% of cases. The patho-etiology of IECA may involve an aberrant immune response or hypersensitivity reaction. Elucidation of the pathology of IECA may be translated into definitive diagnostic, interventional, and preventive modalities, which will further reduce the person years of life lost to heart disease.

Regulatory compliance requirements for an open source electronic image trial management system.
Conf Proc IEEE Eng Med Biol Soc
PUBLISHED: 11-25-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
There is a global need for software to manage imaging based clinical trials to speed basic research and drug development. Such a system must comply with regulatory requirements. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has regulations regarding software development process controls and data provenance tracking. A key unanswered problem is the identification of which data changes are significant given a workflow model for image trial management. We report on the results of our study of provenance tracking requirements and define an architecture and software development process that meets U.S. regulatory requirements using open source software components.

Glucagon receptor antagonist-mediated improvements in glycemic control are dependent on functional pancreatic GLP-1 receptor.
Am. J. Physiol. Endocrinol. Metab.

Hide Abstract
Antagonism of the glucagon receptor (GCGR) is associated with increased circulating levels of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). To investigate the contribution of GLP-1 to the antidiabetic actions of GCGR antagonism, we administered an anti-GCGR monoclonal antibody (mAb B) to wild-type mice and GLP-1 receptor knockout (GLP-1R KO) mice. Treatment of wild-type mice with mAb B lowered fasting blood glucose, improved glucose tolerance, and enhanced glucose-stimulated insulin secretion during an intraperitoneal glucose tolerance test (ipGTT). In contrast, treatment of GLP-1R KO mice with mAb B had little efficacy during an ipGTT. Furthermore, pretreatment with the GLP-1R antagonist exendin-(9-39) diminished the antihyperglycemic effects of mAb B in wild-type mice. To determine the mechanism whereby mAb B improves glucose tolerance, we generated a monoclonal antibody that specifically antagonizes the human GLP-1R. Using a human islet transplanted mouse model, we demonstrated that pancreatic islet GLP-1R signaling is required for the full efficacy of the GCGR antagonist. To identify the source of the elevated GLP-1 observed in GCGR mAb-treated mice, we measured active GLP-1 content in pancreas and intestine from db/db mice treated with anti-GCGR mAb for 8 wk. Elevated GLP-1 in GCGR mAb-treated mice was predominantly derived from increased pancreatic GLP-1 synthesis and processing. All together, these data show that pancreatic GLP-1 is a significant contributor to the glucose-lowering effects observed in response to GCGR antagonist treatment.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Serum concentrations of the fat-soluble vitamins A (retinol) and E (tocopherol) are measured to assess deficiency and, in the case of vitamin A, toxicity. We modified our existing HPLC method for analyzing vitamins A and E by using a high throughput analytical column and small diameter tubing to reduce analysis time. The modified HPLC method was used to establish pediatric reference intervals for these vitamins.

Fast accurate missing SNP genotype local imputation.
BMC Res Notes
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping assays normally give rise to certain percents of no-calls; the problem becomes severe when the target organisms, such as cattle, do not have a high resolution genomic sequence. Missing SNP genotypes, when related to target traits, would confound downstream data analyses such as genome-wide association studies (GWAS). Existing methods for recovering the missing values are successful to some extent - either accurate but not fast enough or fast but not accurate enough.

Genome sequence and assembly of Bos indicus.
J. Hered.
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Cattle are divided into 2 groups referred to as taurine and indicine, both of which have been under strong artificial selection due to their importance for human nutrition. A side effect of this domestication includes a loss of genetic diversity within each specialized breed. Recently, the first taurine genome was sequenced and assembled, allowing for a better understanding of this ruminant species. However, genetic information from indicine breeds has been limited. Here, we present the first genome sequence of an indicine breed (Nellore) generated with 52X coverage by SOLiD sequencing platform. As expected, both genomes share high similarity at the nucleotide level for all autosomes and the X chromosome. Regarding the Y chromosome, the homology was considerably lower, most likely due to uncompleted assembly of the taurine Y chromosome. We were also able to cover 97% of the annotated taurine protein-coding genes.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
