Authors: Göktuğ Kadıoğlu B, Çınar Tanrıverdi E, Alay H, Uçar M Abstract Cervical cancer is a common female cancer that could be diagnosed early with screening methods. Almost all cases are caused by human papilloma virus (HPV) infection. Therefore, detecting the presence of HPV DNA is important for early diagnosis and treatment. Regular determination of screening tests enables early detection of patients with the risk of cervical cancer. For this purpose, since August 2014 a new screening program has been carried out by Early Diagnosis, Screening and Training of Cancer Centers (KETEM). The a...

ConclusionsROSE for liver lesions is useful for assessing adequacy. Certain lesions cannot be accurately diagnosed on ROSE alone. ROSE material when assessed by cytopathologist can improve adequacy rate and possibly decrease number of nondiagnostic specimens in group A, though the cost effectiveness needs to be assessed.

In conclusion, the diagnosis of AMKL requires a combination of the results of bone marrow smears and bone marrow biopsy, immunophenotype or immunohistochemistry. We recommend that routine immunophenotypic analysis should include the CD41 and CD61 markers for diagnosing acute leukemia when bone marrow morphology does not indicate the diagnosis.

Authors: Meršaková S, Holubeková V, Grendár M, Višňovský J, Ňachajová M, Kalman M, Kúdela E, Žúbor P, Bielik T, Lasabová Z, Danko J Abstract Cervical cancer (CC) is the second most common type of cancer affecting the female population. The development of CC takes several years, and involves a precancerous stage known as cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). A key factor in the development of disease is the human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, which initiates carcinogenesis. Furthermore, CC is also impacted by epigenetic changes such as DN...

Conclusion: A considerable percentage of malignant cases showing the presence of koilocytes and viral DNA may indicate the effect of HPV infection leading to the malignancy, which can be correlated with the MN and apoptosis frequency.

Conclusions/significanceThe moderate sensitivity of POC-CCA, even for very lightS. mansoni infections where the sensitivity of Kato-Katz is very low, and the identified relationship between Kato-Katz and POC-CCA prevalence thresholds render the latter diagnostic tool useful for surveillance and initial estimation of elimination ofS. mansoni. For prevalence below 10% based on a duplicate slide Kato-Katz thick smear, we suggest using POC-CCA including trace results to evaluate treatment needs and propose new intervention thresholds that need to be validated in different settings.

Conclusion: Mobile phone radiation even in the permissible range when used for longer duration can cause significant genotoxicity. The genotoxicity accentuates when mobile phones are frequently used on the same side which may be due to more amount of radiation and increase in the temperature. Headphone usage reduces the genotoxicity of mobile phone radiation to some extent.

AbstractMycobacterium xenopi pulmonary disease (Mxe-PD) is common among nontuberculous mycobacterial infections in Europe and Canada. Associations between radiological pattern and clinical features and outcomes are inadequately studied in Mxe-PD. We sought to investigate clinical characteristics and outcomes according to the dominant radiological pattern among patients with Mxe-PD. We retrospectively studied patients with Mxe-PD seen in our clinic, categorizing their predominant CT pattern as nodular bronchiectasis, fibrocavitary, or unclassifiable, and compared clinical characteristics, treatment, and outcomes between rad...

In this report, we demonstrate that the synthetic fish AMP, Epinecidin-1 (Epi-1), acts against T. vaginalis both in vitro and in vivo. Under in vitro conditions, Epi-1 disrupted the membrane of metronidazole-resistant T. vaginalis and completely killed the pathogen. To mimic human infection in vivo, estradiol-stimulated mice with vaginal Lactobacillus acidophilus colonization were infected with T. vaginalis, followed by treatment with Epi-1, Vigill, metronidazole or furazolidone. After seven days, the T. vaginalis content was effectively decreased in Epi-1 treated mice, as measured by acridine orange staining of wet smears...
