CONCLUSION: The authors report an unusual case of ruptured jejunal GIST with hemoperitoneum mimicking ovarian carcinoma. Therefore, GIST, in addition to ovarian cancer, should be considered in patients with an increased serum level of CA-125 and an abdominopelvic mass. PMID: 32055272 [PubMed]

Abstract V-domain Ig suppressor of T-cell activation (VISTA), which belongs to the B7 family and is expressed predominantly on hematopoetic cells, myeloid, granulocytic and T cells, can suppresses T-cell activation in vivo and vitro. The blockade of VISTA has displayed brilliant results in certain murine tumor models. But to date, little is known about the expression and impact of VISTA in human cervical cancer (CC). To fill this gap of information, we systemically investigated the expression of VISTA on tumor cells, intratumoral immune cells (ICs) and vascular endothelial cells (VECs) in a group of patients with ...

What is a coronavirus? Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that cause diseases in mammals, including humans, and birds. Why are they called coronaviruses? The name derives from the fact that the viral capsule has a “halo” or “crown” surrounding it. What do coronaviruses do? In humans, the virus infects the airways giving rise to flu-like symptoms, a runny nose, cough, sore throat and fever, these are usually mild, but in rare cases can be lethal. Is there a vaccine against coronaviruses? No. Are there any drugs to block or treat infection? No. When were coronaviruses first discovered? In the 1960s ...

Authors: Underner M, Peiffer G, Perriot J, Jaafari N Abstract Cocaine can be responsible for many psychiatric and/or somatic disorders. The aim of this systematic literature review of data was to expose relations between cocaine use and pulmonary complications. Cocaine can be responsible for acute respiratory symptoms (cough, black sputum, hemoptysis, dyspnea, wheezing, chest pain) and for various pulmonary disorders including barotrauma (pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum, subcutaneous emphysema, pneumopericardium), airway damage, asthma, bronchiolitis obliterans with organizing pneumonia, acute pulmonary edema, alve...

Smoke-measuring smart shirts, breath sound analyzing algorithms, and smart inhalers pave the way of pulmonology and respiratory care into the future. As the number of patients suffering from asthma, COPD, or lung cancer due to rising air pollution and steady smoker-levels will unfortunately not decrease any time soon, we looked around what technology can do to help both patients and caregivers. The results are breathtaking. Attacks of breathlessness are too common The diseases which pulmonologists and respiratory care specialists attempt to fight are among the most common conditions in the modern world – and t...

Publication date: Available online 5 August 2017 Source:Respiratory Medicine Case Reports Author(s): Hiromasa Nakayasu, Toshihiro Shirai, Yuko Tanaka, Mika Saigusa Reports of chronic eosinophilic pneumonia (CEP) after radiation therapy are limited to breast cancer. We herein describe a case of CEP after radiation therapy for lung cancer. The patient was a 65-year-old man who had asymptomatic peripheral blood eosinophilia but no history of asthma or allergy. One month after completion of radiation therapy, chest CT scan revealed infiltrates inside the irradiated area, leading to the diagnosis of radiation pneumonitis. His ...

Ashley Rivas was 26 when she noticed she was getting tired earlier than usual on her runs. Over the next few years, the X-ray technician from Albuquerque, New Mexico, developed a persistent cough and wheezing, which her doctors attributed to exercise-induced asthma. She had other symptoms, too: weight loss, fever, and several bouts of pneumonia.
