GSE95771 AG221 and Ruxolitinib Treatment Effects on LSKs in IDH2-R140Q JAK2-V617F Transplant Recipients

Contributors : Anna S McKenney ; Barbara Spitzer ; Ross L LevineSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusTransplant recipients of IDH2-R140Q JAK2-V617F expressing bone marrow were treated with AG221 and ruxolitinib monotherapy, combined therapy, or vehicle. LSKs were sorted from terminal samples and sequenced with three WT controls.

Team of researchers changes microbes in koalas ’ guts in order to improve type of food they consumeScientists believe they have found a new weapon in the battle to save endangered species: faecal transplants. They say that by transferring faeces from the gut of one animal to another they could boost the health and viability of endangered creatures. In particular, they believe the prospects of saving the koala could be boosted this way.The idea of using faecal transplants as conservation weapons was highlighted this month at the American Society for Microbiology meeting in Atlanta, where scientists outlined experiment...

Authors: Spiliopoulos S, Hergesell V, Wasler A, Dapunt O Abstract Due to the declining instances of organ donation, total artificial heart (TAH) therapy is of increasing importance for the management of end-stage biventricular heart failure. We introduce the currently most important established and novel TAH systems (SynCardia, CARMAT, ReinHeart, BiVACOR), report clinical outcomes and discuss technical requirements for the successful implementation of TAH therapy as an alternative to cardiac transplantation.

Authors: Zhang Y, Hu Y, Li X, Shi X, Xu F, Jia H Abstract The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of the limbal stem cells in corneal epithelial homeostasis in patients with peripheral corneal disease who received corneal transplantation surgery. This retrospective study enrolled 85 patients (85 eyes) with peripheral corneal lesion who underwent corneal transplantation at Department of Ophthalmology in First Hospital of Jilin University, Jilin, China. All patients during each follow-up period were examined for best corrected visual acuity, corneal reconstruction (assessed by slit-lamp biomicroscopy...

Authors: Cheng PK, Chen XL, Su XX, Su XJ, Hou CL Abstract Refractory ischemic ulcers that occur in patients with diabetes present a major clinical challenge. Embryonic artery cluster of differentiation 133+ cells (EACCs) may promote the healing of diabetic ulcers; however, the high glucose environment in the diabetic ulcers decreases the survival rate of transplanted EACCs and inhibit their biological function. Furthermore, microcirculation in diabetic ischemic ulcers is impaired, which inhibits the beneficial effect of EACCs. In the current study, the Sirt1 agonist SRT1720 was selected as a therapeutic drug and lo...

CONCLUSIONS: Interactions between leukemia cells and the bone marrow niche influence hematopoiesis, leukemogenesis, and chemotherapy resistance in AML and require ongoing study. Understanding the mechanisms that underlie these interactions will help identify rational niche-targeting therapies to improve treatment outcomes in AML patients.

We hypothesize that the reduced peak aerobic power (peak V˙O2) after heart transplantation is due to impaired cardiovascular and skeletal muscle function, and its improvement with short-term (≤1 yr) exercise training is primarily due to favorable skeletal muscle adaptations. Furthermore, the increased peak V˙O2 with long-term (>2 yr) training is primarily mediated by cardiac (sympathetic) reinnervation.

Test your medicine knowledge with the MKSAP challenge, in partnership with the American College of Physicians. A 58-year-old man is evaluated in follow-up for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), which was diagnosed 2 years ago. He has cough and shortness of breath and now requires supplemental oxygen at rest. Previous evaluations have not identified any cause for his symptoms other than progressive IPF. He has participated in pulmonary rehabilitation and continues in a maintenance program. He is a lifelong nonsmoker. His medical history is otherwise unremarkable, and he takes no medications. On physical examinat...

In this study, we examined the effects of cyclosporine and tacrolimus on bone metabolism in rats. Five-week-old male Wistar rats were treated orally with 15 mg/kg cyclosporine or 1.5 mg/kg tacrolimus daily for 4 weeks. Each of cyclosporine and tacrolimus significantly reduced the bone strength of the femoral mid-diaphysis and bone mineral density of the tibia and femur. Bone histomorphometry showed that the administration of both drugs resulted in a decrease in bone volume, number and thickness of trabeculae, and an increase in trabecular separation. Bone formation parameters such as osteoid volume, osteoblast surface, min...

Tendon or ligament reconstructions often use autologous or allogenic tendons from either extrasynovial or intrasynovial sources. Allograft tendons must be lyophilized for preservation before transplantation, a process which can impact mechanical properties of the graft. Reconstituted graft properties that are similar to native tendon are desirable. Although tensile and compressive properties of tendons have been investigated, there is a paucity of information describing flexural properties of tendon, which can impact the gliding resistance.
