Triple negative breast cancer and immunoglobulin A nephropathy: A case report and literature review.

Triple negative breast cancer and immunoglobulin A nephropathy: A case report and literature review. Oncol Lett. 2018 Jan;15(1):979-983 Authors: Jiang D, Zhang X, Liu J, Cui Y, Li Y, Zheng F Abstract The association between malignant tumors and the occurrence of glomerular disease has been well documented in previous studies. The most common types of malignant tumor include Hodgkin's lymphoma with minimal change glomerular nephritis, solid tumor with membranous nephropathy and renal cell carcinoma with immunoglobulin (Ig)A nephropathy. The present case study describes a case of a 31-year-old Chinese female patient who was hospitalized with chronic glomerulonephritis. The patient self-administered unknown traditional Chinese medicine; however, protein excretion/24-h remained increased compared with normal levels. After 34 months, a tumor was identified in the patient. Subsequently, the patient was administered breast-conserving surgery and sentinel lymph node biopsy, which validated the diagnosis of triple negative breast cancer at stage IA (T1cN0M0). The patient received chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Following the review of the relevant studies within the last 30 years, it was demonstrated that the present report was the second documented case of breast cancer associated with IgA nephropathy. Thus, the present study hypothesized that IgA nephropathy may be a tumor manifestation in breast cancer. PMID: 29399159 [PubMed]

An important transition is happening across the United States: Cancer was the leading cause of death in more counties in 2015 than 13 years earlier, a new study finds. However, the opposite was true for heart disease during that period; fewer counties reported it as the top killer.

(CNN) — The US Food and Drug Administration says another heart medicine is being voluntarily recalled after tests showed that it was tainted with a potential cancer-causing chemical. The recall includes one lot of Sandoz’s losartan potassium hydrochlorothiazide 100 milligram/25 milligram tablets with the lot number JB8912. Patients use these drugs to keep their high blood pressure in check. The drug is being recalled because the active ingredient has tested positive for N-Nitrosodiethylamine or NDEA, a suspected human and animal carcinogen that is used in gasoline as a stabilizer for industry materials and as a...

This study investigated the influence of L-tryptophan (L-trp) on the survival, immune response and gut microbiota of the Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis (with an average weight of 16.58 ± 2.20 g). After 30 days of feeding with diets supplemented with L-trp at 0.36%, 0.47%, 0.73% and 1.05% (groups 1, 2, 3 and 4, respectively), the survival rate and bacterial challenge (Aeromonas hydrophila) were evaluated, the activities of antioxidant and phosphatase enzymes in the serum were assessed, and the gut microbiota were measured via high-throughput Illumina sequencing. The results showed that the supplementat...

Researchers have launched a project to sequence the genomes of all known species of eukaryotic organisms in the United Kingdom (U.K.). The U.K. effort to sequence all 66,000 species of its animals, plants, fungi, and protozoa has been named the Darwin Tree of Life project. This project will be part of the larger international effort, the Earth BioGenome Project (EBP), which aims to sequence, catalog, and characterize the genomes of all of Earth’s known 1.5 million species of eukaryotes over a period of ten years. EBP includes a working group of 25 scientists, who have developed a strategy to coordinate genome sequen...

To that aim, multilayer films of alginate (Alg) and chitosan (Chi) were built up through spray assisted layer-by-layer (LbL) technique employing an automatic equipment. A specific drug against breast cancer, tamoxifen (TMX), was incorporated in different intermediate position...

However, the development of more efficient heat nanomediators that exhibit very high specific absorption rate (SAR) value is essential for clinical application to overcome the several restrictions previously encountered due to the large quantity of nanomaterial required f...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the performance of Zr(IV)-loaded garlic peel in the removal of fluoride from a continuous fixed bed column in order to provide guidance for the design and operation of the column reactor. The effects of Zr(IV) ion loading concentration, initial pH, initial fluoride concentration, flow rate and bed depth on ...
