Background: CD123 is a potential immunotherapeutic target in AML due to its overexpression on leukemic stem cells that play an essential role in disease progression and relapse. Our previous study using T cells secreting CD123/CD3 bispecific engager molecules (CD123-ENG T cells) showed promising results in pediatric AML. Interleukin-15 (IL15) has emerged as a candidate immunomodulator as it enhances the cytolytic activity of CD8+ T-cells and induces long-lasting memory T cells. To improve the efficacy and persistence of CD123-ENG T-cells we developed IL-15 expressing CD123-ENG T cells. Here, we report characterization and ...

Publication date: Available online 12 November 2018Source: Genes &DiseasesAuthor(s): Mengyu Xie, Youquan BuAbstractSKA2 (spindle and KT associated 2), also referred to as FAM33A (family with sequence similarity 33, member A), is a recently identified gene involved in cell cycle regulation, and growing evidence is implicating its roles in tumorigenesis and psychiatric disorders. It has been demonstrated that SKA2, along with its coworkers SKA1 and SKA3, constitutes the SKA complex which plays a critical role in the maintenance of the metaphase plate and/or spindle checkpoint silencing during mitosis. SKA2 is over-expres...

This study's researchers approached all people turning 85 in 2006 in two cities in the UK for participation. At the beginning of the study in 2006-2007, there were 722 participants, 60 percent of whom were women. The participants provided researchers with information about what they ate every day, their body weight and height measurements, their overall health assessment (including any level of disability), and their medical records. The researchers learned that more than one-quarter (28 percent) of very old adults had protein intakes below the recommended dietary allowance. The researchers noted that older adults w...

Conclusion The results obtained from this research shows, in general, the fragility in the social and political infrastructure necessary to improve the living conditions of populations, particularly those that depend on family agriculture in drought prone areas. The conditions of social, economic and environmental vulnerabilities presented in the region can be amplified by the drought process, and can aggravate the impacts resulting drought events, thus disadvantaging the population of this region, as shown in the Fig. 1. The general perception of the interviewees of the health sector shows an agreement with what is found...

ConclusionReviewing the literature, so many different data concerning probability of breast cancer in sexual minority can be found. Breast cancer screening program should be offered to all transgender individuals according to national guidelines. Very important is to take into consideration a transgender person ’s natal and surgical anatomy, unique clinical concerns for depression and anxiety, risk of suicide together with risk factors including experiences of harassment or physical or sexual violence, low education level, and unemployment. Understanding the need for mammography in these often marginaliz ed groups is...

Authors: Rahouma M, Kamel M, Abouarab A, Eldessouki I, Nasar A, Harrison S, Lee B, Shostak E, Morris J, Stiles B, Altorki NK, Port JL Abstract Purpose: Previous studies have reported that psychological and social distresses associated with a cancer diagnosis have led to an increase in suicides compared to the general population. We sought to explore lung cancer-associated suicide rates in a large national database compared to the general population, and to the three most prevalent non-skin cancers [breast, prostate and colorectal cancer (CRC)]. Methods: The Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) data...

We presently forget 98% of everything we experience. That will go away in favor of perfect, controllable, configurable memory. Skills and knowledge will become commodities that can be purchased and installed. We will be able to feel exactly as we wish to feel at any given time. How we perceive the world will be mutable and subject to choice. How we think, the very fundamental basis of the mind, will also be mutable and subject to choice. We will merge with our machines, as Kurzweil puts it. The boundary between mind and computing device, between the individual and his or her tools, will blur. Over the course of the ...

We report generation of reporter systems driven by either keratin-14 (K14) or keratin-8 (K8) promoter that not only express a fluorescent protein but also an inducible suicide gene. Transgenic mi ce express the reporter genes in the right cell compartments of mammary gland epithelia and respond to treatment with toxins. In addition, we engineered the reporters into 4T1 metastatic mouse tumor cell line and demonstrate that K14+ cells, but not K14− or K8+, are both highly invasive in three-d imensional (3D) culture and metastatic in vivo. Treatment of cells in culture, or tumors in mice, with reporter-targeting toxin i...
