Interferon alfa-2a maintenance after salvage autologous stem cell transplantation in a mycosis fungoides patient with central nervous system involvement

Mycosis fungoides is a primary cutaneous T cell lymphoma with unfavorable prognosis for the advanced stages of the disease. Refractory disease and advanced-staged disease require systemic therapy.

CONCLUSIONS: Oncotype is a cost-effective intervention from a health system perspective since each QALY gained costs less than 25,000 euros. From a societal perspective, it is dominant since it provides greater health and is accompanied by cost savings. PMID: 30442434 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Human liver fluke infection caused by Opisthorchis viverrini is a major public health problem in Mekong countries such as Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Myanmar with over 10 million infected through consumption of fish containing infective metacercariae. With no tissue migration phase and living entirely within the larger secondary (intrahepatic) bile ducts, liver flukes are only exposed to a biliary mucosal immune response, while their excretory and secretory products also stimulate chronic inflammation of biliary epithelium. Neither mucosal nor tissue immune responses appear to cause parasi...

Abstract The availability of genome and transcriptome data of the liver fluke Opisthorchis viverrini provides the foundation for exploration of gene function and its effect on host-parasite interactions and pathogenesis of O. viverrini-associated bile duct cancer. Functional genomics approaches address the function of DNA at levels of the gene, RNA transcript and protein product using informative manipulations of the genome, epigenome, transcriptome, proteome, microbiome and metabolome. Advances in functional genomics for O. viverrini have thus far focused on RNA interference. The flukes have been transfected with...

Abstract The liver flukes Opisthorchis viverrini, O. felineus, and Clonorchis sinensis are closely related fish-borne trematodes endemic in East Asia, Eurasia, and Siberia. Following ingestion, the parasites locate to the biliary tree, where chronic infection frequently leads to cholangiocarcinoma (CCA). Infection with C. sinensis or O. viverrini is classified as a Group 1 carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Infection with O. felineus may also be carcinogenic. The mechanism(s) by which infection with these liver flukes culminates in CCA remain elusive, although they are likely to be mult...

This article contained an outline of the subsequent Seoul Declaration, which was the result of a cross-disciplinary effort by almost 100 experts. Of course more research is needed on this subject, but I think this article goes a long way towards promoting greater understanding of a local food tradition like the Korean one. Why open access? All the content published in this journal is ultimately about health, well-being, food safety and eating behaviors. We believe that a wider public of researchers, scholars and consumers should access to this kind of information and the open access model suits perfectly this purpose. Also...
