How would you tackle this heavily calcified LAD with calcified #nodule that was appropriately identified by intravascular imaging? #OCT…

In this #EHJCaseReports #tweetorial we take a deep dive into the Rx of #calcified coronary lesions.
Calcified lesions are top of the totem pole of complex PCI
Main armamentaria are balloon-based #IVL & ablation-based (rotational/orbital) techniques, while ancillary tools eg guide extension catheters are useful too.…

What do you see with this non-compliant balloon in this calcified RCA?
What would you do next? Poll in next tweet!…

Mag ik jullie er nog eens aan herinneren wat vitamine D met mij heeft gedaan. Weg gewrichtspijnen door ontstekingen (dat weet ik omdat ik etoricoxib slikte). @MinVWS en @ministerVWS. Vitamine D is goed voor je. Het is kanker remmend en zorgt er blijkbaar ook voor dat…

ontstekingen in gewrichten verdwijnen. We krijgen al weinig natuurlijke vitamine D binnen op het noordelijk halfrond. Want vit. D krijg je van zonlicht op je blote, niet ingesmeerde huid. En wat doet @minvws daartegen? Niets sterker nog ze zorgen ervoor dat we zo min…

mogelijk vit D aanmaken of binnen krijgen. Hun laatste offensief:…

Andere middelen die ze hanteren (mijn visie, hoeft net persé waar te zijn):
1 maak de mensen wijs dat zonlicht kankerverwekkend is. Laat ze zich insmeren met factor 50 zodat ze…

#2 B-COMPLEX/MULTI VITAMIN. Buy a liposomal or other form that increases bio-availability. Take 1 capsule w/Breakfast and Lunch. If you have stomach upset, try sublingual (under tongue) EZ Melt B-Complex in AM & Multi w/iron for Dinner.…
#3 OMEGA 3s. Fish Oil, Krill Oil, Algae Oil are all good sources of Omega 3. Be careful the EPA/DHA ratio. EPA helps with inflammation/DHA helps with cognition. You need both! Opt for a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio of DHA to EPA (2:1 ratio eg. 800 DHA/400EPA)…

Is sex a critical factor for treating #AtrialFibrillation?❤️‍🩹

New #CardiovascularResearch study examines #SexDifferences in calcium handling & therapies in patients with #AFib…

Our tweetorial explains the findings⬇️👩‍🏫

@ESC_Journals @escardio #EPeeps (1/9)
#Atrial #myocytes were isolated from patients with & without #AtrialFibrillation

Sex differences in #risk factors & therapies were considered in the analysis (2/9)
To explore #SexDifferences in the mechanisms of #Afib, calcium handling was examined & calcium handling proteins investigated (3/9)

We have an exciting new #preprint on @medrxivpreprint ! A novel class of #primaryimmunodeficiency, with the discovery of ITPR3 mutations in two families with combined immunodeficiency. As always, studying #PID teaches us so much about biology! 1/8…
The work is based on patients identified @UZLeuven by Rik Schrijvers and @IsabelleMeyts. Both patients had a combined #immunodeficiency with sensitivity to infections, one complicated by peripheral #neuropathy and one by #autoimmune hemolytic anemia. Over to the gene hunters! 2/8
Mutations in ITPR3 were identified by Erika Van Nieuwenhove and Frederik Staels. ITPR3 is part of a #Calcium channel, so we turned to the Serysheva lab @Irina52948708 to predict the impact on structure. Clear as day, the mutations change the charge of the channel. 3/8

Our latest paper from @LabMetabolism is out! 🧠🔥

"Changes in mitochondrial morphology modulate LPS-induced loss of #calcium homeostasis in BV-2 microglial cells"

#Metabolism #NeuroTwitter #ImmunoTwitter
This was @osvaldo_rpe's first publication and a pretty cool debut indeed!

Osvaldo is a brilliant scientist that I had the honor to co-advise. No doubt I learned from him way way more than I taught.

A well-deserved first-authorship for an undergraduate student! 👏
Go, go #mitochondria!

We already knew that microglial activation induces mitochondrial fragmentation and that mito morphology correlates with its Ca2+ uptake

But the influence of mito Ca2+ handling on #microglial activation was still unclear...

Out today in @PNASNews we reveal how Ca2+ signals coordinate the flow of milk from secretory alveoli to the nipple during lactation… A wonderful team effort by @Stevenson_alex2 @DrYassum @tenealestewart @DrNickCondon @BethLloydLewis @LabEthan @_adamewing 1/
Using volumetric #calcium imaging we show how #oxytocin (released in response to suckling) produces Ca2+ #oscillations in mammary basal cells, causing them to contract and repetitively deform the innermost layer of secretory cells (shown here in red) 2/
We show that Ca2+ release from internal stores and influx across the cell membrane are sufficient for these contractions to occur but that Ca2+ influx is necessary to sustain them 3/

Un bébé ̷v̷é̷g̷é̷t̷a̷l̷i̷e̷n̷" ⚠️nourri à l'eau de coco handicapé à vie. Est-ce que ça pourrait arriver en France?
Voyons ce que dit @ameli_actu à propos de ces "régimes"
Donc on en est encore aux histoires de protéines d'il y a 30 ans. Et la #B12, le #FER, le #Calcium, #omega ?
Que dit l'équivalent en Grande Bretagne le #NHS ?…
* Vitamin D supplements 👍 (comme +de 50% de la population française)
* A vitamin B12 supplement may be needed 👍(comme +22% de la pop. Française)
Les sources des autres nutriments sont donnés sur le site.
En France, il faut donc aller chercher des renseignements sur des sites végés/véganes alors qu'une information sur les sites institutionnels pourrait empêcher des drames de se produire.
Le risque de tomber sur un site de #pseudosciences ou #TC

Ladies, there's a little kanyana mineral called #Calcium, make sure you get enough of it, coz deficiency will cause havoc in your body..extreme chaos. From oesteoporosis (brittle bones) dental issues, cataracts (clouding of eyes), cramping &numbness, fatigue, seizures, depression
Ladies, Low #Calcium can also affect the brain. Its a mineral necessary for building bones, enabling blood to clot, muscle contraction, and for our heart to beat. Try to get natural sources in dairy, beans, egg yolk, broccoli, green veges, for us oldies about +800mg a day.
Ladies, PMS symptoms, mood swings depression, forgetfulness, all those might be linked to low #Calcium. This is so important. Take time to read more…

If you do have hypocalcemia (low calcium) find out why and get back on track.
