Pharmacokinetics, metabolism, and excretion of 14 C-labeled belinostat in patients with recurrent or progressive malignancies

Conclusion Mass balance was achieved (~95 % mean recovery), with metabolism identified as the primary route of elimination. Radioactivity was predominantly excreted renally as belinostat metabolites.

This article provides practical guidelines for the design and implementation of a phototherapy protocol for early stage MF, including an overview of treatment phases, response criteria, and considerations in the selection of a light source. Several evolving topics in phototherapy research are also discussed, including the relative efficacy of PUVA versus NBUVB, the role of maintenance therapy, risk of photocarcinogenicity, and combination therapies.

Phototherapeutic modalities induce apoptosis of keratinocytes and immune cells, impact cytokine production, downregulate the IL-23/Th17 axis, and induce regulatory T cells. As in anti-IL-17 or anti-IL-23 antibody treatment, the dual action of phototherapy on skin and the immune system is likely responsible for sustained resolution of lesions in diseases such as psoriasis. In cutaneous T cell lymphoma, phototherapy may function by causing tumor cell apoptosis and eliminating the neoplastic and inflammatory infiltrate. Further research on phototherapeutic mechanisms will help advance, optimize, and refine dermatologic treatm...

ConclusionsAn improvement in efficacy could not be observed after modified DHAP regimen; however, manageable toxicity and reduced renal complications suggest further investigation. The study, however, also underlines the need for new concepts in the management of advanced and high-risk lymphomas.

Abstract Macrophage activation syndrome (MAS), a form of secondary hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, is a frequently fatal complication of a variety of pediatric inflammatory disorders. MAS has been most commonly associated with systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (sJIA), as approximately 10% of children with sJIA develop fulminant MAS, with another 30-40% exhibiting a more subclinical form of the disease. Children with other rheumatologic conditions such as systemic lupus erythematosus and Kawasaki disease are also at risk for MAS. Moreover, MAS also complicates various genetic autoinflammatory disorders suc...

AbstractExtranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (ENKTCL), nasal type, is rare and aggressive and often involves the nose, nasopharynx, and upper aerodigestive tract. The non-nasal type can affect the skin, salivary glands, gut, testes, brain, salivary glands, and other sites. Primary ENKTCL of the lung is rare. Here, we report a 68-year-old non-smoking female who presented with fever, dry cough, and night sweats. The chest image showed lung consolidation in the right lower lung field. Pulmonary biopsy showed diffuse abnormal lymphocyte infiltrate in the necrotic exudate. Immunohistochemical data indicated that the tumour...

We describe a case of a 76-year-old Caucasian male who presented to the Emergency Department (ED) with weight loss, abdominal pain, and multiple episodes of vomiting and diarrhea. He underwent a laparotomy with an intraluminal mass seen in the cecum. Histology showed atypical intermediate- to large-sized cells involving the full thickness of the bowel wall with numerous mitotic figures and apoptotic bodies. The adjacent uninvolved mucosa demonstrated villous blunting, increased intraepithelial lymphocytes, crypt elongation, and lamina propria plasmacytosis, consistent with the celiac enteropathy. Rare large transformed cel...

A rapidly increasing number of reports on dysregulated long intergenic non-coding RNA (lincRNA) expression across numerous types of cancers indicates that aberrant lincRNA expression may be a major contributor to tumorigenesis. Marek’s disease (MD) is a T cell lymphoma of chickens induced by Marek’s disease virus (MDV). Although we have investigated the roles of lincRNAs in bursa tissue of MDV-infected chickens in previous studies, the molecular mechanisms of lincRNA functions in T cells remain poorly understood. In the present study, Linc-GALMD1 was identified from CD4+ T cells and MSB1 cells, and its expressi...
