Authors: Becquart O, Guillot B, Bourrain JL, Duflos C, Du-Thanh A Abstract The risk of skin cancer induced by photosensiting drugs is well known. An association between hydrochlorothiazide use and skin cancer has been recently published in some epidemiological studies. A systematic review of case-control or prospectives cohorts showed an increased risk of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma even if some confusing factors such as tobacco smoking was not analysed. Results are more conflicting for basal cell carcinoma or melanoma. These results do not modify the benefit/risk ratio but should lead to propose preventive m...

The impact of the addition of Chlorella minutissima, Isochrysis galbana, Picochlorum sp. at concentrations of 0.5, 1, and 1.5% w/v on the texture and sensory attributes of canned burgers were investigated. Compared to controls, fish burgers containing 0.5% of C. minutissima, 1% of ...

Publication date: Available online 18 May 2019Source: Molecular Phylogenetics and EvolutionAuthor(s): Carolina L. Gandini, Laura E. Garcia, Cinthia C. Abbona, M. Virginia Sanchez-PuertaAbstractShort repeats (SR) play an important role in shaping seed plant mitochondrial genomes (mtDNAs). However, their origin, distribution, and relationships across the different plant lineages remain unresolved. We focus on the angiosperm family Solanaceae that shows a wide diversity in repeat content and extend the study to a wide diversity of seed plants. We determined the complete nucleotide sequences of the organellar genomes of the me...

Authors: Gallicchio R, Mastrangelo PA, Nardelli A, Mainenti PP, Colasurdo AP, Landriscina M, Guglielmi G, Storto G Abstract Radium-223 dichloride (223Ra) is the first, recently approved, α-particle-emitting radiopharmaceutical for the treatment of patients with bone metastases in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) and no evidence of visceral metastases. We explored MEDLINE, relevant congresses, and websites for data on 223Ra and prostate cancer therapies, focusing on therapeutic strategies and timing, bone metastases, and diagnostic assessment. 223Ra represents the only bone-targeting agent that has ...

In this study, we used the same samples to perform RNA-seq to detect the global effects after the decrease of PmRunt expression. The transcription levels of several nacre shell matrix protein (NSMP) genes were significantly changed and the potential compensatory effect could happen internal gene families. Downregulation of PmRunt could also influence the biosynthesis of NSMPs through affecting amino acid metabolism, translation, protein processing and export. The inhibition of PmRunt also possibly affected the expression of caspases, IAPs and C1qs that related to apoptosis and immune. In addition, PmRunt highly expressed a...

ConclusionTaken together, the present findings suggested that matrine induced apoptosis and autophagy through down-regulating circ-104075 and Bcl-9 expression via inhibition of PI3K/AKT and Wnt-β-catenin pathways in glioma cells. The present study provides a foundation for further preclinical and clinical evaluations of matrine as a glioma therapy.

We synthesized an acryloyl chloride modified olsalazine (olsalazine-AC) as an azo crosslinker which was copolymerized with hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and methacrylic acid (MAA), and developed two types of azo hydrogels which contained single network h...

ConclusionsLong-term QOL and late toxicity are favorable following postprostatectomy radiation therapy. Identifiable clinical and dosimetric risk factors may guide decision making to optimize urinary, sexual, and bowel function.Patient summaryThe following study provides a detailed report of favorable patient-reported quality of life and late side-effect profiles of radiation therapy following surgery for localized prostate cancer. Our findings provide patients guidance on what symptoms to expect if they are planning to undergo radiation therapy in this setting. It also allows physicians to counsel patients appropriately, ...

So, in it's current draft I have my shadowing MM essay describing a couple sentences about pathology, urology, and rural primary care. Mostly kind of just what I saw and how those physician qualities were demonstrated and so on (usual shadowing stuff). Would it be better to do that or to give an actual anecdote? I do have a particularly impactful story (to me , at least) where I shadowed over the course of several months for a patient's screening, biopsy, cancer diagnosis, prostectomy and...
