Outcomes of endoscopic submucosal dissection for gastric epithelial neoplasm in chronic kidney disease patients: propensity score-matched case –control analysis

ConclusionsESD for gastric epithelial neoplasms can be performed in stage 3 CKD patients with comparable efficacy and safety to that performed in non-CKD patients. Stage 4 and 5 CKD patients should be closely monitored for bleeding events after ESD.

CONCLUSIONS Our study demonstrated that hub DEGs may assist in the molecular understanding of LGG recurrence. These findings still need further molecular studies to identify the assignment of DEGs in LGG. PMID: 31104065 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, we investigated FTH1 mRNA expression and its diagnostic and prognostic value in RCC. MATERIAL AND METHODS The mRNA expression of FTH1 was analyzed using including Oncomine, Gene Expression Omnibus, and Cancer Genome Atlas datasets, while the protein level of FTH1 was analyzed using the Human Protein Atlas database. The associations between FTH1 and clinicopathologic characteristics and survival time and Cox multivariate survival analysis were analyzed using SPSS 22.0 software. A meta-analysis was performed to assess consistency of FTH1 expression. GO, KEGG, and PPI analyses were used to predict biological fu...

AbstractPurposeEndoscopic approach represents a valid alternative to conventional septoplasty. The aim of this study is to analyze the objective and subjective data on 276 patients, who underwent traditional (147) or endoscopic (129) septoplasty.MethodsThis is a prospective observational study on 276 consecutive patients affected by deviated nasal septum (DNS), who underwent isolated septoplasty between 2011 and 2018. 147 of them were treated using an “open” approach, while 129 were treated with an endoscopic approach. The two groups were compared 3 months after surgery: the objective results (complications suc...

Publication date: July–August 2019Source: Reports of Practical Oncology &Radiotherapy, Volume 24, Issue 4Author(s): Marika Musielak, Igor Piotrowski, Wiktoria M. SuchorskaAbstractOver the past two decades nanotechnology has become an important part of novel medical research. Researchers have made great progress in developing nanotechnology applications used for detecting and treating oncological diseases. Recently, many research groups have focused on the use of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) in cancer treatment. Due to the range of therapeutic properties and possibilities of various modifica...

Publication date: Available online 20 May 2019Source: Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology and MedicineAuthor(s): Mengjiao Zhou, Weijia Wei, Xianfeng Chen, Xiuzhen Xu, Xiaohong Zhang, Xiujuan ZhangAbstractAdvanced drug delivery systems often employ nanomaterials as carriers to deliver drugs to desirable disease sites for enhanced efficacy. However, most systems have low drug loading capacity and cause safety concerns. Therefore, many anticancer therapeutics have recently been assembled to NPs form without using any additional nanocarrier to achieve high drug loading. However, carrier-free nanomedicines are often constrain...

Conclusion: Image registration applied to dynamic time series correlated with structural renal changes and should be further explored as a tool for invasive measurements of arteriosclerosis. Significance: Under the assumption that the proposed framework can be further developed in terms of sensitivity and specificity, it can provide clinicians with a non-invasive tool of high spatial coverage available for characterization of arteriosclerosis and potentially other pathological changes observed in chronic kidney disease.

CONCLUSIONS: Population-based registries should focus on specific measures for verifying the diagnosis of IBC since physicians may miss documenting the disease in medical records. This study may have implications for better reporting and documentation of IBC in hospital- and population-based cancer registries in Morocco and other similar countries.
