Summary: International Kidney Cancer Symposium

Conclusions VHL/PBRM1 mutations confirmed 3rd subtype identified and under review but appears to be mis-classified tumors.  Shows value of molecular methods rather than new mechanistic insights. Integration with survival outcome—suggests molecular detailing can be prognostic Full integrative analysis in process Preliminary data can be found at http://tcga-data.nci.hih.gov/tcga/ FoxO Transcription Factors in mTORC1- Activated Renal Tumorigenesis:  Implications for the RCC Treatment Boyi Gan, MD Anderson Cancer Center FoxO Family Transcription Factors:  mammals possess FoxO1, FoxO3, FoxO4 and FoxO6. FoxO1/3/4 are regulated by PI3K – AKT signaling. Inhibits cell survival and proliferation.  Promotes apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in mammalian cell culture systems, putative tumor suppressor role.  In mouse models somatic deletion of TSC1 leads to the development of polycystic kidney and renal tumor.  Dual inactivation of FoxO and TSC1 dramatically drives renal tumor progression.  FoxOs are extinguished in the majority of human renal tumor samples.  Broad somatic deletion of all 3 FoxOs was shown to engender a cancer-prone condition dominated by hemangiomas and lymphomas. Myc signaling is the key downstream effector of FoxOs in the regulation of renal tumorigenesis. A combination therapy to target both...

Publication date: Available online 20 October 2019Source: International Journal of PsychophysiologyAuthor(s): Eliana Vassena, Filip Van Opstal, Ingeborg Goethals, Tom VergutsAbstractThe ability to exert control has been widely investigated as a hallmark of adaptive behaviour. Dopamine is recognized as the key neuromodulator mediating various control-related processes. The neural mechanisms underlying the subjective perception of being in control, or Locus of Control (LOC) are however less clear. LOC indicates the subjective tendency to attribute environmental outcomes to one's actions (internal LOC) or instead to external ...

ConclusionsThe relevance of SPARC expression in pancreato-biliary carcinomas though may still be important for therapeutic decision making, it is not responsible for peritumoral stromal desmoplasia in these tumors and it does not have any significant prognostic implication.

Objective: To compare the rate of malreduction after high fibular fractures associated with syndesmosis injury treated with open reduction and internal fixation, with either 2 screws or 1 knotless TightRope device. Design: Prospective randomized controlled multicenter trial. Setting: Eleven academic and community hospitals including Level 1 and Level 2 trauma centers across Canada. Patients/Participants: One hundred three patients with OTA/AO 44-C injuries with demonstrated radiographic syndesmosis diastasis or instability after malleolar bony fixation were followed for 12 months after treatment. Methods: Ope...

Conclusions: This retrospective cohort study demonstrates that both ESRD and CKD patients have worse outcomes compared to patients with no kidney disease after HA for FNF. Level of Evidence: Prognostic Level III. See instructions for authors for a complete description of levels of evidence.
