5.  Gestational diabetes mellitus: Screening with fasting plasma glucose 
World Journal of Diabetes  2016;7(14):279-289.
Fasting plasma glucose (FPG) as a screening test for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) has had a checkered history. During the last three decades, a few initial anecdotal reports have given way to the recent well-conducted studies. This review: (1) traces the history; (2) weighs the advantages and disadvantages; (3) addresses the significance in early pregnancy; (4) underscores the benefits after delivery; and (5) emphasizes the cost savings of using the FPG in the screening of GDM. It also highlights the utility of fasting capillary glucose and stresses the value of the FPG in circumventing the cumbersome oral glucose tolerance test. An understanding of all the caveats is crucial to be able to use the FPG for investigating glucose intolerance in pregnancy. Thus, all health professionals can use the patient-friendly FPG to simplify the onerous algorithms available for the screening and diagnosis of GDM - thereby helping each and every pregnant woman.

11.  There and back again: insulin, ENaC, and the cortical collecting duct 
Physiological Reports  2016;4(10):e12809.
Cell culture models suggest mechanisms by which insulin stimulates ENaC in the cortical collecting duct. These mechanisms still need to be tested for physiological significance in animal models of insulin resistance.

21.  Efforts to eliminate the latent reservoir in resting CD4+ T cells: strategies for curing HIV-1 infection 
Journal of Virus Eradication  null;1(4):229-231.
Abstract
Since the introduction of the first antiretroviral drug, zidovudine, in 1987, over 25 different antiretroviral agents from six different drug classes have been approved for the treatment of HIV-1 infection. Today, combination antiretroviral therapy (ART) is extremely effective in suppressing HIV-1 replication, providing durable control of the virus in adherent patients. However, despite the effectiveness of ART in blocking viral replication, HIV-1 infection cannot be cured by ART alone because HIV-1 establishes a state of latent infection in a small pool of resting, memory CD4+ T cells. Some new developments in the search for a cure are discussed.
