Abstract The p53 family member p73 controls a wide range of cellular function. Deletion of p73 in mice results in increased tumorigenesis, infertility, neurological defects and altered immune system. Despite the extensive effort directed to define the molecular underlying mechanism of p73 function a clear definition of its transcriptional signature and the extent of overlap with the other p53 family members is still missing. Here we describe a novel TAp73 target, ATP7A a member of a large family of P-type ATPases implicated in human neurogenerative conditions and cancer chemoresistance. Modulation of TAp73 express...

Postoperative adhesions, which develop in approximately 50-85% of patients who have undergone abdominal surgery, often result in severe complications, including intestinal obstruction, female infertility, chronic pain, and contraindication of surgery for future abdominal illnesses such as cancer. Here, we investigated the cell source of collagen production in postoperative adhesions and explored mo...

Abstract A balanced Robertsonian translocation results from fusion of two acrocentric chromosomes. Carriers are phenotypically normal, and are often diagnosed because of recurrent miscarriages, infertility or aneuploid offspring. Mortality and site-specific cancer risks in carriers have not been prospectively investigated. We followed 1987 carriers diagnosed in Great Britain for deaths and cancer risk, over an average of 24.1 years. Standardised mortality (SMR) and incidence (SIR) ratios were calculated comparing the number of observed events against population rates. Overall mortality was raised for carriers diagnosed aged

It continues to happen: I run into people who say to me “I follow the Wheat Belly lifestyle. I eat gluten-free!” When I ask them what that means, they tell me that they only eat gluten-free bread, pasta, pizza, cookies, etc. I’m not entirely sure why this misinterpretation of the Wheat Belly message is so common. Let’s talk about this important distinction, as being gluten-free can be an absolute health and weight disaster, unlike the magnificent health and weight loss we enjoy on the Wheat Belly lifestyle when done right. It’s perfectly fine to be gluten-free, i.e., avoiding wheat, rye, and b...

Hodgkin Lymphoma (HL) is a chemo-radiosensitive cancer with a five-year survival rate over 85% with current therapies [1]. However, there are serious long-term therapy related adverse events such as second cancers, cardiac and peripheral vascular disease, pulmonary disease, infertility, sexual dysfunction, etc. Therefore, it is extremely important to reduce the long-term side effects, reducing the amount and toxicity of poly-chemotherapies and improving staging procedures [2,3].

The world’s first baby born by a uterus transplant from a deceased donor is healthy and nearing her first birthday, according to a new case study published Tuesday in the Lancet. Uterus transplants have become more common in recent years, resulting in 11 live births around the world. But all of the other successful deliveries so far have been made possible by living donors — often women who opt to donate their uterus to a close friend or family member without one. The birth resulting from the case detailed in the Lancet, which took place at Brazil’s Hospital das Cli╠ünicas last December, is both the first...
