Prediction of long-term prognosis of age-related macular degeneration treated by hemorheologic therapy

BACKGROUND + OBJECTIVE:Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the most typical reason behind sensible blindness in folks over 60 years of age in industrialised international locations. We formulated a speculation {that a} group of preliminary laboratory parameters can be appropriate for prediction of prognosis of AMD, permitting for particular person modifications in therapy depth.
Sufferers and strategies: 66 sufferers with dry type of AMD had been handled utilizing rheohaemapheresis with a person follow-up interval of greater than 5 years. The sufferers’ preliminary laboratory knowledge was break up in two subgroups primarily based on therapy success and analysed utilizing discriminant evaluation (evaluation of the linear and quadratic fashions utilizing the automated and interactive step-wise strategy) via the Systat 13 software program.
Outcomes: Prediction of prognosis primarily based on the preliminary laboratory parameters was right in 79% of unsuccessfully handled sufferers, permitting for early detection of high-risk sufferers. With using a quadratic mannequin, the prediction was right in 100% of unsuccessfully handled sufferers and in 75% of efficiently handled sufferers.
Conclusion: Implementation of discriminant evaluation is a promising technique for prediction of prognosis, particularly when the affected person is liable to AMD development, which permits for early and extra intensive monitoring and therapy.
Key phrases: Rheohaemapheresis; age-related macular degeneration; prognosis prediction; therapy failure.

Neutrophil Gelatinase-Related Lipocalin Measured on Medical Laboratory Platforms for the Prediction of Acute Kidney Damage and the Related Want for Dialysis Remedy: A Systematic Evaluate and Meta-analysis

 

  • Rationale & goal: The usefulness of measures of neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin in urine or plasma (u/pNGAL) obtained on scientific laboratory platforms for predicting acute kidney harm (AKI) and extreme AKI requiring kidney dialysis (AKI-D) has not been totally evaluated. We sought to quantitatively summarize revealed knowledge to judge the worth of urinary and plasma NGAL for prediction.

 

  • Research design: Literature-based meta-analysis and individual-study-data meta-analysis of diagnostic research following PRISMA-IPD pointers.

  • Outcomes: We included 52 observational research involving 13,040 sufferers. We analyzed 30 datasets for the individual-study-data meta-analysis with 837 AKI occasions, 304 extreme AKI occasions, and 103 extreme AKI-D occasions for analyses of urine NGAL and 705 AKI occasions, 271 extreme AKI occasions, and 178 AKI-D occasions for analyses of plasma NGAL. Discriminative efficiency was comparable in individual-study-data meta-analysis and literature-based meta-analysis. Particular person-study-data meta-analysis AUCs for uNGAL had been 0.75 (95% CI 0.73-0.76) and 0.80 (0.79-0.81) for extreme AKI and AKI-D, respectively; for pNGAL, the corresponding values had been 0.80 (0.79-0.81) and 0.86 (0.84-0.86). Minimize-off-concentrations at 95% specificity for uNGAL had been >580 ng/mL with 27% sensitivity for extreme AKI and >589 ng/mL with 24% sensitivity for AKI-D. Corresponding cut-offs for pNGAL had been >364 ng/mL with 44% sensitivity and >546 ng/mL with 26% sensitivity, respectively.
