Incidence and Survival Rate of de novo Tumors in Liver Transplants

ConclusionIn our setting, excluding NMSC, the incidence is 8.8 times greater than estimations for the general population, with a high rate of lung cancer, so we should implement preventive and diagnostic strategies.ResumenIntroducciónLa mayor supervivencia del paciente trasplantado viene acompañada del aumento en la tasa de tumores de novo (TN) que representan la complicación tardía más frecuente. Podemos distinguir entre tumores de piel no melanoma (TPNM), síndrome linfoproliferativo postrasplante (SLPT) y tumores de órgano sólido (TOS). Nuestro objetivo es determinar la incidencia de los distintos TN, el tiempo trascurrido hasta su diagnóstico y su supervivencia en nuestro medio.Material y métodoRealizamos un estudio retrospectivo de 1.071 trasplantados hepáticos desde 1990 hasta 2015 en nuestro centro. Analizamos las variables demográficas, la incidencia de TN y la supervivencia.ResultadosSe desarrollaron 184 TN en 1.071 pacientes trasplantados (17%), en el 19% de los varones y en el 13% de las mujeres (p = 0,004). Los TN más frecuentes fueron los TPNM (29%), pulmón (18%), cabeza y cuello (16%), SLPT (10%) y gastrointestinales (8%). La mediana del tiempo de diagnóstico fue de 7,9 años en los TPNM, 3,9 años en SLPT y de 9,8 años en TOS. Los pacientes con TPNM tuvieron significativamente mejor supervivencia que aquellos con SLPT o TOS. La in...

President Donald Trump on Monday signed legislation that will extend the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund until 2092. During the signing ceremony at the White House, Trump was surrounding by first responders, survivors and family members of several who died in the 2001 terrorist attack on the United States. The U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S Senate voted overwhelmingly last week to approve the legislation that will provide a lifetime of assistance for victims and their families. The extension will allow the fund, first established in 2001, to pay for past and future medical claims of those effected by the...

The U.S. Senate followed the House of Representatives on Tuesday and passed legislation that will extend the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund until 2092. The legislation will fund all current and future medical claims of those effected by the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, and United Flight 93, which crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The extension of funding will benefit victims who may develop mesothelioma linked to the more than 400 tons of asbestos that covered the 16-acre disaster zone after the twin towers fell. According to World Trade Center R...

The Senate gallery erupted in applause from politicians and first responders on Tuesday after a 97-2 vote to extend the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund until 2092. The reauthorization will fund all current and future medical claims of those effected by the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, and United Flight 93, which crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The extension will allow victims and their families to file claims through 2090, but they will be paid out through 2092. The extension of funding will benefit victims who may develop mesothelioma linked to ...

Background Information on the impact of other cancers (OCs) in long-term survivors (LTSs) of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is limited. Patients and methods Patients with CLL who survived>10 years were defined as LTSs of CLL. We calculated standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) to compare the incidence of OC in LTS of CLL versus the general population. A multivariable model was used to identify independent predictors of OC. Overall survival was analyzed as a function of the presence of OC. Results Among 797 LTSs of CLL, the cumulative frequency of OC was 36%, similar between 570 patients (72%) who required treatment...

Abstract: Autologous adoptive T-cell therapies have made tremendous strides over the last few years with excitement currently being generated by technologies that can reprogram T-cell specificities toward any desired antigen including chimeric antigen receptors and recombinant T-cell receptors. Time will tell whether these new genetically engineered T-cell technologies will be effective as advertised, especially in solid tumors, considering the limited availability of specific antigens and the difficulty in managing the unpredictable on-target, off-tissue toxicities. However, a form of T-cell therapy that has been utilized...
