Advances in Health and Disease. Volume 13 begins by examining how lipid abnormalities in chronic kidney disease attract continuous attention due to their unclear involvement in chronic kidney disease patient outcomes. If kidney function declines, inflammation and oxidative stress progress and lipid disturbances develop, and malnutrition may ameliorate dyslipidemia in advanced chronic kidney disease.

Although rare, pancreatic trauma can significantly impact the life of a patient, with some requiring a total pancreatectomy which will result in pancreatogenic diabetes. Diagnosis can be difficult, especially in children, with clinical symptoms being absent in many. As such, the authors discuss the current scientific literature on the diagnosis and management of pancreatic trauma and the promising use of autologous islet cell transplant in these patients.

The authors go on to present the state-of-art knowledge on the effects of adenotonsillectomy and rapid maxillary expansion on the dentofacial development of children, clarifying what might be expected regarding facial growth after normalizing the mode of breathing and increasing the width of the maxilla.

Following this, this compilation summarizes the growth and development processes of the face to describe the theories and mechanisms of facial growth and development.

Next, the management of multi-drug resistant tuberculosis and extreme drug resistance tuberculosis is discussed, along with the latest World Health Organization guidelines and policy recommendations for treatment.

The literature regarding the clinicopathological features of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue of the dura is reviewed, focusing on how to differentiate mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue of the dura from clinical and pathologic mimics.

In the closing study, changes in the molecular mechanism inside an ensemble up to 3 mio Daltons in human muscle in members of one family from eight to 67 years old are investigated using non-invasive gravitational mass spectroscopy.
