SIR,—AsMeyers et al note, data regarding the iron hypothesis of atherogenesis are inconsistent, and data regarding the closely allied oxidation hypothesis are also conflicting. Thus, I suggest that the beneficial eVect of blood donation on cardiovascular disease is caused by a reduction in haematocrit and blood viscosity. Haematocrit was shown to be a risk factor for atherosclerosis in the Framingham study. Haematocrit is also a very powerful determinant of blood viscosity. Increased blood… 
Exercise, Nutrition, and Supplements in the Muscle Carnitine Palmitoyl-Transferase II Deficiency: New Theoretical Bases for Potential Applications
TLDR
The aim of this review is to clarify biochemical mechanisms related to nutrition and physiological aspects of muscle metabolism related to exercise in order to propose new theoretical bases of treatment which, if properly tested and validated by future trials, could be applied to improve the quality of life of patients.
International Journal of Medical and Biomedical Studies (IJMBS)
TLDR
Assessment of Leptin Concentration in Gingival Crevicular Fluid (GCF) during Orthodontic Tooth Movement concludes that concentration of leptin in the GCF is decreased by orthodontics tooth movement.
Letter to the Editor
TLDR
The age proposed by the authors for diagnosing HSPM (5 years old) is suggested, which will improve future studies about MIH and H SPM in order to provide comparisons.
The COVID-19 pandemic and dentistry: the clinical, legal and economic consequences - part 2: consequences of withholding dental care
TLDR
The suspension of routine dental care to save lives will lead to the closure of many dental practices due to substantial financial impact, and the return to routine care will be slow, with prioritisation of non-aerosol generating procedures while the authors look to further understand methods to mitigate transmission risk via infected aerosol and spatter.
Changes in biochemical parameters in horses during 40 km and 80 km endurance races
TLDR
It is demonstrated that endurance races cause evident changes in serum electrolyte concentrations, renal parameters and markers of muscle damage in horses, which are observable in horses at both short and long duration endurance races.
Interactions between Growth of Muscle and Stature: Mechanisms Involved and Their Nutritional Sensitivity to Dietary Protein: The Protein-Stat Revisited
TLDR
Information on the influence of dietary protein on muscle mass per se as opposed to lean body mass is limited but suggests that increased protein intake in children is unable to promote muscle growth in excess of that linked to genotypic growth in length/height.
The COVID-19 pandemic and dentistry: the clinical, legal and economic consequences - part 1: clinical
TLDR
The full effect of the disruption to dental services, education and research is likely to be substantial and the immediate future will focus on return to routine care provision with likely longer-term permanent changes.
Frozen Bodies and Future Imaginaries: Assisted Dying, Cryonics, and a Good Death
TLDR
This comparative essay aims to show that proponents of both practices are in search of a good death, and how both conceptualize dying as an ethical good, and examines the similarities between the biotechnological and future imaginaries of cryonics and MAiD.

Effects of age on the urinary excretion of total and non-dialyzable hydroxyproline
TLDR
The data appear to indicate that also the decrease in osteogenetic activity is responsible for the physiological late involutional bone loss and the importance of hormonal changes in inducing an uncoupling between bone formation and resorption is shown.
Bone mass as referent for urinary hydroxyproline excretion: Age and sex-related changes in 125 normals and in primary hyperparathyroidism
TLDR
Estimation of bone resorption by use of OHPr:Cr requires adjustment for differences in bone mass, as shown in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism and in post-menopausal females.
Two weeks of metformin improves clomiphene citrateinduced ovulation and metabolic profiles in women with polycystic ovary syndrome
TLDR
In obese PCOS patients, 2 weeks of MET significantly reduces serum insulin and insulin resistance and increases SHBG levels, resulting in an improved response to CC, and this regimen may be beneficial in noncompliant patients or those with intolerance to the side effects of MET.
The role of metformin in polycystic ovary syndrome: a systematic review.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that CC is still first choice therapy for women with therapy naïve PCOS and in CC-resistant women, the combination of CC plus metformin is the preferred treatment option before starting with LOD or FSH.
Mean wall thickness of trabecular bone packets in the human iliac crest: Changes with age
TLDR
The decrease of MWT with age corresponds to a decrease in bone formation at the basic multicellular unit (BMU) level with aging and can partly explain the physiological senile osteopenia.
Prospective parallel randomized, double-blind, double-dummy controlled clinical trial comparing clomiphene citrate and metformin as the first-line treatment for ovulation induction in nonobese anovulatory women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
TLDR
Six-month metformin administration is significantly more effective than six-cycle CC treatment in improving fertility in anovulatory nonobese PCOS women.
Effect of clomifene citrate plus metformin and clomifene citrate plus placebo on induction of ovulation in women with newly diagnosed polycystic ovary syndrome: randomised double blind clinical trial
TLDR
Metformin is not an effective addition to clomifene citrate as the primary method of inducing ovulation in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
Realistic simulation of transcranial direct current stimulation via 3-d high-resolution finite element analysis: Effect of tissue anisotropy
TLDR
Simulation of transcranial direct current stimulation via 3-D high-resolution FEA and investigated the effect of tissue anisotropy on tDCS show that the skull an isotropy induces a strong shunting effect, causing a shift of the stimulated areas, and the white matter an Isotropy affects strongly the current flow directions, changing the current field distribution inside the human brain.
