In January, 2018, Academic Press published my bookPrecision Medicine and the Reinvention of Human Disease. This book has an excellent " look inside " at itsGoogle book site, which includes the Table of Contents. In addition, I thought it might be helpful to see the topics listed in the Book's index.

By ANISH KOKA, MD No one knows who Bennie Solis is anymore. He had the misfortune of being born in the early 1960s marked for death. He had a rare peculiar condition called biliary atresia – a disease defined by the absence of a conduit for bile to travel from his liver to his intestinal tract. Bile acid produced in the liver normally travels to the intestines much like water from a spring travels via ever larger channels to eventually empty into the ocean. Bile produced in the liver with no where to go dams up in the liver and starts to destroy it. That the liver is a hardy organ was a fact known to the ancient Gree...

Conclusions: Posttransplant MNs have a latency period between that seen in AML/MDS related to alkylators and that associated with topoisomerase II inhibitors. The cytogenetic profile suggests a mutagenic effect on leukemogenesis. The clinical outcome for AML/MDS is dismal, with death occurring at an early phase of treatment.

Authors: Kim K, Lee HJ, Park S, Hwang Y, Kim YW, Kim YT Abstract A 47-year-old man with myasthenia gravis (MG) was admitted for a lung transplant. He had bronchiolitis obliterans after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation due to acute myeloid leukemia. MG developed after stem cell transplantation. Bilateral sequential lung transplantations and a total thymectomy were performed. The patient underwent right diaphragmatic plication simultaneously due to preoperatively diagnosed right diaphragmatic paralysis. A tracheostomy was performed and bilevel positive airway pressure (BiPAP) was applied on postoper...

Okay, maybe I have been in a rut because I have been stuck at home after knee surgery because I can't drive. Or maybe because I have a cold that I am obsessing on crappy lives after cancer. Or maybe the internet gods had their stars align and all these stories ended up on my laptop in the same time period. But I hope this will be the last one for a while.Here's the story of a young woman who lost both her husband and her sister because of her lengthy cancer treatment." “The reality is that probably four out of seven days I’m in bed,” explains the 39-year-old, who lives with her mother at Bundall.&ldq...

In this study, we have shown that the lipid chaperones FABP4/FABP5 are critical intermediate factors in the deterioration of metabolic systems during aging. Consistent with their roles in chronic inflammation and insulin resistance in young prediabetic mice, we found that FABPs promote the deterioration of glucose homeostasis; metabolic tissue pathologies, particularly in white and brown adipose tissue and liver; and local and systemic inflammation associated with aging. A systematic approach, including lipidomics and pathway-focused transcript analysis, revealed that calorie restriction (CR) and Fabp4/5 deficiency result ...

Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) and juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML) are myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS)/myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN) overlap disorders characterized by monocytosis, myelodysplasia, and a characteristic hypersensitivity to granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF). Currently, there are no available disease-modifying therapies for CMML, nor are there preclinical models that fully recapitulate the unique features of CMML. Through use of immunocompromised mice with transgenic expression of human GM-CSF, interleukin-3, and stem cell factor in a NOD/SCID-IL2Rnull background (NSG...

Lung cavitary lesions are a rare finding in the nontransplant setting of a patient with acute leukemia. Among viral agents, cytomegalovirus (CMV) may cause pulmonary nodules and cavities in patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, but during pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia treatment, CMV disease is less common. Here we report the case of a boy affected by acute lymphoblastic leukemia who suffered severe cavitary CMV pneumonia during chemotherapy, and we review the current literature.
