Skin Microbiome in Small- and Large-plaque Parapsoriasis.

This study examined changes in the skin microbiome of parapsoriasis compared with intact skin. Swab microbiome specimens were taken of the parapsoriasis lesions of 13 patients. Control samples were taken from contralateral healthy sides of the body. Microbiotas were characterized by sequencing the V1-V3 region of the 16S ribosomal RNA bacterial genes on the Illumina MiSeq platform. The most common genera in the microbiome data were Propionibacterium (27.13%), Corynebacterium (21.20%) and Staphylococcus (4.63%). Out of the Staphylococcus sequences, 39.6% represented S. epidermidis, with the rest including S. hominis, S. capitis and unidentified species. No significant differences were observed between the patients' parapsoriasis and contralateral healthy skin or between large- and small-plaque parapsoriasis. Notable interpersonal variation was demonstrated. These results suggest that parapsoriasis is not associated with significant alterations in the cutaneous bacterial microbiome.

Contributors : Ruben Carrasco ; Meng JiangSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Homo sapiensColorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer, which despite recent advances in treatment, remains incurable due to molecular heterogeneity of tumor cells. The B-cell lymphoma 9 (BCL9) oncogene functions as a transcriptional co-activator of the Wnt/ β-catenin pathway, which plays critical roles in CRC pathogenesis. Here we have identified a β-catenin-independent function of BCL9 in a poor-prognosis subtype of CRC tumors characterized by expression of stromal and ne...

Bcl-XL is one of the key regulators of apoptosis that can also regulate other important cellular functions. Bcl-XL is overexpressed in many cancers, and its inhibitors have shown good therapeutic effects. Bcl-XL interacts with Beclin 1, a key factor regulating autophagy.Bcl-XL is essential for the survival of neurons and plays protective ro...

Authors: Patil T, Simons E, Mushtaq R, Pacheco JM, Doebele RC, Bowles DW Abstract ROS1 gene fusions account for approximately 1-2% of all cases of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Similarly to anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive NSCLC, patients with ROS1+ NSCLC tend to have minimal smoking and be of the female sex. In most cases, adenocarcinoma is the dominant histology. The ROS1 gene has homology to ALK and this structural similarity formed the basis for utilizing ALK inhibitors for ROS1+ NSCLC. On the basis of impressive progression-free survival of 19.2 months from the PROFILE 1001 trial, crizotinib obt...

This article aims to discuss the concept of stigma and its repercussions on persons living with HTLV. The discussion is based on a literature review on the theme and the authors' experience with care for persons affected by the infection and illness. The study found that both HTLV carrier status and HTLV-related illness can be stigmatizing for individuals, who feel inferior for being infected with a potentially serious and even fatal disease, although incompletely understood and loaded with derogatory stereotypes. This situation can have negative repercussions on access to health services, treatment adherence, and pursuit ...
