Witness: Man Was Forced to Participate in 3 Slayings to ‘Dirty His Hands’

Three people were strangled or smothered to death in a Kansas drug home over a rape allegation and one of the suspects was forced to participate to save his life, according to court testimony.

Conclusions: Our report is the first study to examine the distant metastatic breast cancer proteome using FFPE tissues. The depth of our dataset allowed us to discover a novel biomarker candidate and a proteomic characteristics of distant metastatic breast cancer. Distinct molecular features of various breast cancer subtypes were also established. Our proteomic data constitute a valuable resource for research on distant metastatic breast cancer.

This article summarizes some clinical shortcuts. Simple procedures such as taking a detailed medical history can provide clues to the underlying cause of chronic pruritus in order to achieve targeted diagnostic workup or to avoid unnecessary testing. If clinical shortcuts are not identified, we recommend a structured medical history, which is also discussed in this article. PMID: 32488462 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
