Case Series of 10 Patients with Cirrhosis Undergoing Emergent Repair of Ruptured Umbilical Hernias: Natural History and Predictors of Outcomes.

CONCLUSIONS: Emergent repair after umbilical hernia rupture in patients with decompensated cirrhosis carries a poor prognosis with 30% of patients developing poor postsurgical outcomes. PMID: 28697716 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Retrospective analysis has already shown correlation between severe Chronic Periodontitis (CP) cases with human papiloma virus (HPV). Hence, we aimed to explore deep-seated infected granulation tissue removed during periodontal flap surgery procedures for residential bacterial species between HPV+ and HVP- CP cases, which may serve as good predisposition marker for oral cancer. All CP-granulation samples showed the prominence of Firmicutes, Proteobacteria, and Bacteroidetes phyla with an abundance of gram negative anaerobes, except Streptococcus. In Beta diversity nonmetric multidimensional scaling plot, ...

Authors: Zhang Y, Li L, Xu Y, Zhao X, Li F Abstract The regeneration of the skin is vital to our wound healing and skin repair abilities. Adult epidermal stem cells (ESCs) have been shown to have the potential to renew old and dead skin cells, and ESCs have been implemented in stem cell-based therapies. GPR30 is a G protein-coupled membrane receptor for oestrogen, which has been shown to regulate cell proliferation and programmed cell death. Here, we examined the biological function of GPR30 in isolated adult murine ESCs. We show that GPR30 is fairly expressed in ESCs and is repressed upon ultraviolet B (UV-B) trea...

ConclusionThe ruthenium(II) complex showed beneficial effects as it ameliorated and prevented the progression of diabetes-related liver derangements while eliminating the hepatotoxicity associated with the use of metal compounds. However, further studies are still required to further determine the physiological mechanisms behind this effect.

This study aimed to determine the effects of back massage on postoperative vital signs, pain, and comfort levels in liver transplant patients.MethodsA quasi-experimental model with a pretest, a posttest, and a control group was used. The population of the study comprised adult patients who had liver transplantation for the first time. The study sample comprised 84 adult patients who had liver transplantation: 42 experimental (study group) and 42 control group, selected by power analysis and the random sampling method from the population. The data were collected between May and September 2016 using the short-form McGill Pai...

Authors: Damaskos C, Garmpis N, Kollia P, Mitsiopoulos G, Barlampa D, Drosos A, Patsouras A, Gravvanis N, Antoniou V, Litos A, Diamantis E Abstract The globalization of the Western lifestyle has resulted in a dramatic increase of diabetes mellitus, a complex, multifactorial disease. Diabetes mellitus is a condition often associated with disorders of the cardiovascular system. It is well established that three quarters of diabetics, aged over 40, will die from cardiovascular disease and are more likely than non-diabetics to die from their first cardiovascular event. Therefore, risk stratification is necessary to ind...

ConclusionWe demonstrated newly developed MSI-NGS with MSIcall accurately determines the MSI status of FFPE tumor tissues thorough sequencing of tumor samples alone without patient-matched normal controls. This approach could be applied to all types of solid tumors to determine responders to immune-oncology therapy.

AbstractImmunotherapy has been recently approved for gastric (GC) and gastroesophageal-junction adenocarcinomas (GEC), and PD-L1 immunohistochemical evaluation represents a promising predictive biomarker in this oncological setting. A series of 125 gastroesophageal dysplastic lesions (52 low-grade, 73 high-grade) was investigated for PD-L1 and DNA mismatch repair proteins status. PD-L1 was positive (combined positive score (CPS)  ≥ 1) in 48 (31.0%) dysplastic lesions. A higher prevalence of PD-L1–positive cases was observed among esophageal specimens compared with gastric ones (p = 0.00...
