Abstract Parental environmental effects-or transgenerational plasticity-can influence an individual's phenotype or fitness yet remain underexplored in the context of global change. Using the perennial self-pollinating plant Boechera stricta, we explored the effects of climate change on transgenerational and within-generation plasticity in dormancy, germination, growth, and survival. We first conducted a snow removal experiment in the field, in which we transplanted 16 families of known origin into three common gardens at different elevations and exposed half of the siblings to contemporary snow dynamics and half t...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review discusses the pathophysiology, risk factors, and the advances in the prevention or treatment of graft-vs-host disease (GvHD) by exploiting adjunct virotherapy. In addition, nonviral adjunct therapeutic options for the prevention of GvHD in the context of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) are discussed. The role of oncolytic viruses to treat different HSCT-eligible hematological cancers is also considered and correlated with the issue of GvHD in the context of allo-HSCT.Recent FindingsEmerging therapies focused on the prevention or treatment of GvHD include t...

Abstract As upper extremity transplantation is becoming more accepted worldwide, the demand for a fresh tissue cadaveric training model for this procedure is increasing and necessary to assure surgical success. Surgical rehearsals can decrease operative time, improve technique, and reduce errors made on the actual day of surgery. The purpose of this article is to describe a method for surgical rehearsal of upper extremity transplantation using cadaveric specimens based on the clinical experience of an academic institution with an active transplantation program. The logistics of rehearsal setup, equipment, and modi...

Tissue engineering solutions help doctors to deliver tissue equivalent to damaged tissue. Such treatment method requires advanced biomaterials which would not only enable cells proliferation but also help to maintain their viability. The aim of the present work was to develop new chitosan-based biomaterial with enhanced properties applicable in ...

This study retrospectively assessed the clinical and biological parameters of 223 patients with advanced NSCLC. Univariate and multivariate analyses of overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) for the parameters and the prognostic score were assessed. RESULTS Performance status (PS) score=1, smoking history, fibrinogenemia, thrombocytosis, increased lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) level, and anemia were independent predictors of poor prognosis in the univariate analysis of OS and were assessed in multivariate analysis. There was a significant difference in PS=1 (HR=2.134, p
