(CNN) — Many women have breast implants with no serious complications, but there have been cases where women suffer pain and fatigue, among other health problems. Now, the US Food and Drug Administration plans to hold a meeting to take a closer look at such cases and put breast implant safety under a microscope. The FDA will convene a meeting of the Medical Devices Advisory Committee’s General and Plastic Surgery Devices Panel on Monday and Tuesday to discuss and make recommendations relating to the risks and benefits of breast implants. The meeting, which will be open to the public, comes just days after the F...

a Pro Although Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) is highly curable with first-line therapy, relapses occur in approximately 10–20% of patients with early stage disease and 30–40% of patients with advanced stage disease. The standard approach for relapsed or refractory disease is salvage therapy, followed by consolidation with high dose therapy and autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT). Patients who achieve a complete response to salvage therapy prior to ASCT have better outcomes, thus recent studies have focused on incorporating newer agents in this setting. Major challenges in the management of relapsed patie...

This study aimed to investigate the value of PTEN, NF-κB, WWP2, p53 and c-Myc expressions in distinguishing B cell lymphomas from reactive follicular hyperplasia (RFH), and their abilities to discriminate different B cell lymphoma subtypes. Lymphoma tissue samples were obtained from 30 follicular lymphoma (FL) patients, 30 germinal center B-cell like (GCB) diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients, 30 non-GCB DLBCL patients and 30 Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) patients. And hyperplasia tissue samples were obtained from and 30 RFH patients. Immunohistochemistry was used to quantify the expressions of PTEN, NF-κB,...

Compared with conventional chemotherapy, mogamulizumab monotherapy displayed more effecacy in relapsed ATL making mogamulizumab a promising therapeutic agent. However, mogamulizumab could increase graft-versus-host disease, resulting in poor survival outcome in allogenic st...

Nagoor Meeran, Hasan Al Taee, Sheikh Azimullah, Saeed Tariq, Ernest Adeghate, Shreesh OjhaAbstractThe cannabinoid type 2 receptor (CB2) has recently emerged as an important therapeutic target for cancer as well as cardiovascular diseases. The CB2 receptor downregulation has been reported in solid tumors and cardiovascular diseases, therefore the CB2 receptor activation has been considered as a viable strategy for chemotherapy as well as cardioprotection. Doxorubicin (DOX) is an important drug that continues to be the mainstay of ...

Authors: Bright SA, Byrne AJ, Vandenberghe E, Browne PV, Mcelligott AM, Meegan MJ, Williams DC Abstract The nitrostyrene scaffold was previously identified as a lead target structure for the development of effective compounds targeting Burkitt's lymphoma. The present study aimed to develop these compounds further in haematological malignancies, including chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). Cellular viability, flow cytometry and lactate dehydrogenase assays, amongst others, were used to examine the effects of nitrostyrene compounds on CLL cells, including a cell line representing disease with poor prognosis (HG‑3...
