Systemic Capillary Leak Syndrome (Clarkson Syndrome) in Cancer Patients: A Systematic Review.

Systemic Capillary Leak Syndrome (Clarkson Syndrome) in Cancer Patients: A Systematic Review. J Clin Med. 2018 Nov 06;7(11): Authors: Shin JI, Lee KH, Lee IR, Oh JH, Kim DW, Shin JW, Eo TS, Kronbichler A, Eisenhut M, van der Vliet HJ Abstract Systemic capillary leak syndrome (SCLS) is a rare disease characterized by shock caused by capillary hyperpermeability. The disease can occur in cancer patients and effective therapeutic strategies have not been established yet. The aim of the study was to analyze the clinical and laboratory data, treatment modalities, and mortality rate of patients and to identify contributing factors leading to mortality of SCLS in cancer. We searched MEDLINE (inception to July 2018) and of 4612 articles, we identified 62 case reports on SCLS associated with cancer or cancer-related drugs in a total of 53 articles. SCLS was associated with cancer itself in 43.6%, with anti-cancer agents in 51.6% and bone marrow transplantation (BMT) in 4.8%. Among anti-cancer agents, granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) was the most frequently associated drug (14.6%), followed by interleukin (IL)-2 (11.4%). The most common associated malignancies were hematologic (61.3%) with non-Hodgkin lymphoma (22.7%) and multiple myeloma (12.9%) being the leading causes. Common symptoms and signs included dyspnea (27.4%), edema (67.7%), hypotension (32.2%), pleural effusion (29.0%), ascites (22.7%), oliguria (22.7%), and weight gain (21.0%). Patients ...

Abstract Retrospective analysis has already shown correlation between severe Chronic Periodontitis (CP) cases with human papiloma virus (HPV). Hence, we aimed to explore deep-seated infected granulation tissue removed during periodontal flap surgery procedures for residential bacterial species between HPV+ and HVP- CP cases, which may serve as good predisposition marker for oral cancer. All CP-granulation samples showed the prominence of Firmicutes, Proteobacteria, and Bacteroidetes phyla with an abundance of gram negative anaerobes, except Streptococcus. In Beta diversity nonmetric multidimensional scaling plot, ...

Abstract An important harmonization effort was produced by the scientific community to standardize both the preanalytical and interpretative phases of programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) immunohistochemical (IHC) testing in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This analysis is crucial for the selection of patients with advanced-stage tumors eligible for treatment with pembrolizumab and potentially with other anti-PD-1/PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitors. This multicentric retrospective study evaluated the reproducibility of PD-L1 testing in the Italian scenario both for closed and open platforms. In the evaluation of the wel...

Authors: Li W, Cao Z, Liu R, Liu L, Li H, Li X, Chen Y, Lu C, Liu Y Abstract Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs), as a kind of inorganic nanoparticle, have been gradually recognized as one of the most promising nanomaterials, which is attributed to their unique optical, electronic, sensing and biochemical characteristics. Due to such unique characteristics, AuNPs have been widely applied in biomedical fields such as diagnosis, biosensing and drug delivery. Except for their use in cancer treatment alone with their photothermal ablation of solid tumours, when used with anticancer drugs, AuNPs can exert a dual role in treating...

This experimental study evaluated the protective efficacy of the anti-hyperglycaemic/anti-neoplastic agent phenformin against radiation-induced developmental toxicity in zebrafish embryos. Zebrafish embryos pre-treated with 25 μM phenformin 1 h before x-ray irradiation were compared to irradiation-only embryos for mortality, hatching rate, morphology, spontaneous ...
