Antibodies against ARHGDIB and ARHGDIB gene expression associate with kidney allograft outcomeBackground. The impact of donor-specific anti-HLA antibodies (DSA) on antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) and kidney allograft failure is well established. However, the relevance of non-HLA antibodies remains unclear. Methods. We investigated 13 pretransplant non-HLA antibodies and their association with histology of AMR (AMRh) and kidney allograft failure. We included single kidney recipients (N=203) with...

Pain monitor: reality or fantasy in ambulatory patientsPurpose of review In an unconscious patient, there can be significant challenges to monitoring nociception and proper dosing of analgesic medications. The traditional measures of intraoperative nociception have poor sensitivity and specificity with little predictive value in postoperative outcomes such as postoperative pain, opioid-induced side effects, length of stay or incidence of opioid use disorder. To date, several monitoring modalities...

Myocardial Phosphodiesterases and their Role in cGMP RegulationCyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases comprise an 11-member superfamily yielding near 100 isoform variants that hydrolyze cAMP or cGMP to their respective 5’-monophosphate form. Each plays a role in compartmentalized cyclic nucleotide signaling, with varying selectivity for each substrate, and conveying cell and intracellular specific localized control. This review focuses on the five PDEs expressed in the cardiac myocyte capable of hydrolyzing...
