Authors: Harada K, Yasuda M, Hasegawa K, Yamazaki Y, Sasano H, Otsuka F Abstract Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare malignancy arising from adrenocortical parenchymal cells. Myxoid ACC is one of the newly identified, rare, but important histological variants of ACC, characterized by the presence of abundant extracellular Alcian Blue-positive myxoid material. Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is an autosomal dominant cancer predisposition syndrome, and the incidence of ACC in MEN1 patients has been reported to be between 1.4% and 6%. Here, we report the case of a 68-year-old Japanese woman harboring t...

Double-wedge prism scanners are typically used for one-dimensional (1D) scanning in imaging systems. This type of scanner operates on the principle of two identical wedge prisms counter-rotating around the optical axis with identical angular velocity in order to move the image formed by the optical ...

Authors: Procaccio L, Bergamo F, Manai C, Di Antonio V, Fassan M, Zagonel V, Lonardi S, Loupakis F Abstract Introduction: Lung metastases occur in 10-20% of patients with colorectal cancer (CRC). Most of them are treated with palliative intent and have a poor prognosis. Pulmonary metastasectomy may be a curative option for carefully selected patients with 5-year survival rates ranging from 25% to 60%. However, up to 70% of patients develop recurrence after pulmonary metastasectomy. Therefore, the identification of prognostic factors is essential in CRC patients with resectable lung metastases. Areas covered: This r...

This study involved patients from the North-East Indian population, where the numbers of reported cases are increasing rapidly and alarmingly. Oxidative stress, based on 8-OH-dG levels, was found to be significantly higher in gallbladder anomalies (cholelithiasis [CL] and cholecystitis [CS]) and GBC at the plasma and DNA level, and was associated with GBC severity. The expressions of key BER pathway genes were downregulated in gallbladder anomalies and GBC compared to controls, and in GBC compared to both non-neoplastic controls and gallbladder anomalies. Expression of XRCC1 and hOGG1 was significantly associated with both...

Natali, Rômulo D. NovaesAbstractWhen administered alone, preinfection exercise training and benznidazole-based chemotherapy induce cardioprotection in Chagas disease. However, the effect of concomitant exercise and benznidazole treatment is unknown. We investigated whether exercise and specific chemotherapy could interact to modulate parasitemia, inflammation, redox status and heart damage...

Several phosphonated monomers with different carbon-carbon double bond reactivity were grafted. According to 1H NMR carried out on irradiated monomers solubilized in water, the reactivity is the highest for (acryloyloxy)methyl phosphonic acid (hPAAPC1), and the lowest for allyl phosphonic acid (APA).

In general, the rate of recrystallization of the melt after complete melting of α′-crystals decreases with increasing melt-temperature mainly due to the lowering of the self-nuclei co...

Vengatajalabathy GobiAbstractChemotherapy is a widely used effective method for the treatment of cancer in humans. Severity of dose levels and treatment duration necessitate frequent continuous monitoring of active drug concentration in human serum and urine. Development of an electrochemical biosensor for direct determination of methotrexate (MTX), a chemotherapy agent, from physiological fluids has been investigated. Functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotube paste electrodes (f-CNTPE) hav...
