Highlights in Physician Assistant

Predictors of poor coronary collateral circulation in stable CAD

As reported in Angiology, the fasting blood glucose and serum uric acid levels and the white blood cell count were higher in patients with stable CAD (n=480) and associated with poor coronary collateral circulation.

KIT mutations associated with poor prognosis in GISTs

Based on a meta-analysis (18 studies; n=1487) reported in the World Journal of Surgical Oncology, KIT mutations in patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are associated with larger tumors (> 5 cm), higher mitotic activity (> 5), more frequent recurrences (OR = 2.06), more frequent metastases (OR = 2.77), and worse 3-year overall survival (OR = 0.47) compared to patients with PDGFRA mutations or wild-type.

Metacarpal DXR-BMD predicts 1-y RA progression

As reported in the Annals of Rheumatic Diseases, a metacarpal BMD determination after 4 months of anti-RA treatment is an independent predictor of 1-y progression in patients without baseline bone erosions (OR=2.0). For patients with baseline erosions, early metacarpal BMD loss is predictive of 1-y progression (OR=1.5).
