Highlights in Nurse Practitioner

GALNT4 predicts survival in patients with ccRCC

As reported in the Journal of Urology, N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 4 (GALNT4) levels are decreased in tumor specimens from patients with clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC; n=104) compared to peritumoral specimens. Decreased expression of GALNT4 is associated with poor OS (OR=3.08) and RFS (OR=2.17). Further, GALNT4 is negatively correlated with tumor size, necrosis, and TNM stage.

Increased prevalence of osteoporosis in morbidly obese

As reported in the International Journal of Clinical Practice, while there is a decreased prevalence of osteoporosis up to a BMI of 40 kg/m2, the prevalence of osteoporosis increases in patients with a BMI > 40 kg/m2, which is thought to be due to decreased weight-bearing exercise.

Serum uric acid correlates with erectile dysfunction

As reported in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, men with erectile dysfunction have higher levels of serum uric acid than men without (6.12 mg/dL vs. 4.97 mg/dL). Comparing the highest and lowest tertiles for serum uric acid, the OR for erectile dysfunction was 5.95.
