Successful Treatment of Invasive Conidiobolus Infection During Therapy for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

We report the successful treatment of an adolescent male with B-cell lymphoblastic leukemia and MDR invasive sinopulmonary Conidiobolus infection with emphasis on early and aggressive neutrophil support with surgical debridement. The strategies described could be applied to other MDR fungal infections.

Authors: Dong A, Yang W, Huang H, Zhou X, He Z, Yao R, Guo W Abstract Changes in histone H3 lysine 9 trimethylation (H3K9me3) may be related to the development of drug‑resistant acute myeloid leukaemia (AML); insights into the network of H3K9me3 may improve patient prognosis. Patient data were derived from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database and data from AML cells treated with chidamide, a novel benzamide chemical class of histone deacetylase inhibitor (HDACi), in vitro were derived from ChIP‑seq. Patients and AML cell data were analysed using GEO2R, GOseq, KOBAS, the STRING database and Cytoscape ...

In this study, we analyzed the distribution of Mycobacterium species, compare the diagnostic methods, and susceptibilities to anti-tuberculosis drugs of TB isolates. The aim was to document the current status and to provide a frame of reference for future studies. In this study, 278 Mycobacterium species isolated from 7,480 patients between September 2015 and June 2019 were included. Löwenstein-Jensen medium (LJ) and MGIT 960 were used for the isolation of strains. Susceptibility to 1st-line anti-tuberculosis drugs was determined. Positivity rates in clinical samples were as follows: 1.4% for direct microscopic acid-f...

In conclusion, we described a myeloid NKL-code and several deregulated NKL homeobox genes in AML. We identified for NKL homeobox gene NANOG deregulating factors and downstream activities in AML. These data indicate a common oncogenic role of NKL homeobox genes in myeloid malignancies.
