Anthropometric Traits and Risk of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) and Major NHL Subtypes: A Pooled Prospective Analysis

Conclusions: Preliminary results from this prospective analysis suggest that, unlike BMI later in life, young adult BMI is consistently associated with all major subtypes of NHL. In contrast, usual adult BMI and waist circumference are uniquely associated with DLBCL. In general, the strongest associations with anthropometric factors were observed for DLBCL. Further analyses of these data are ongoing, including efforts to incorporate data from two additional large cohorts. These findings further demonstrate the etiologic heterogeneity of NHL subtypes and underscore the importance of maintaining a healthy body weight throughout life, including at younger ages.DisclosuresChao: Seattle Genetics: Research Funding.

Authors: Gold PA, Garbarino L, Sodhi N, Barrack R, Springer BD, Mont MA Abstract The demographics of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) patients are changing. Individuals are more active, younger, and more obese. These changing demographics and a higher demand for longevity creates a new challenge for reliable and long-term implant fixation. Historically, cemented fixation has remained the gold standard, as cementless design and techniques from the 1980s and 1990s did not obtain long-term positive outcomes due to a failure of ingrowth onto the implants. Advances in the modern-day cementless TKA designs appear to have ov...

Authors: Goto D, Komeda K, Uwatoko N, Nakashima M, Koike M, Kawai K, Kodama Y, Miyazawa A, Tanaka I, Hase T, Morise M, Hasegawa Y, Kawabe T, Sato M Abstract We evaluated the value of UHRF1, a regulator of methylation, as a biomarker for lung cancer. UHRF1 is expressed at higher levels in both lung adenocarcinoma (AD) and squamous cell carcinoma (SQ); however, a meta-analysis showed that UHRF1 expression is correlated with worse survival in patients with AD but not in those with SQ. UHRF1 knockdown suppressed the growth of lung cancer cell lines through G1 cell cycle arrest in some cell lines. These results suggest ...

Authors: Zhang P, Tao H, Yu L, Zhou L, Zhu C Abstract Injectable implants with the ability to form in situ are one of the most promising carriers for the delivery of chemotherapeutic drugs to tumor sites. We have reported a novel injectable in situ-forming implant system composed of n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (NBCA), ethyl oleate, along with the sol-gel phase transition. The chemotherapeutic drug-loaded injectable NBCA ethyl oleate implant (INEI) exhibited excellent therapeutic efficacy for local chemotherapy. Herein, we utilize this INEI to carry N, N'-(Sulfonyldi-4,1-phenylene)bis(2-chloroacetamide) (TE-C-5003), whi...

Authors: Akhter MH, Kumar S, Nomani S Abstract Objective: In vitro, optimization, characterization and cytotoxic studies of NAR NPs to against pancreatic cancer.Method: The sonication tailored NARG loaded poly (lactide-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticle (NPs) was fabricated for potential cytotoxic effect against pancreatic cancer. NARG NPs were prepared by emulsion-diffusion evaporation technique applying Box Behnken experimental design based on 3-level and 3-factors. The effect of independent variables surfactant concentration (X1), polymer concentration (X2) and sonication time (X3) were studied on responses p...

Authors: Rudy HL, Cho W, Oster BA, Tarpada SP, Moran-Atkin E Abstract Study Design: Retrospective cohort study. Purpose: To determine the effects of massive weight loss on perioperative complications after lumbar fusion surgery (LFS). Overview of Literature: Patients who are obese are more likely to experience low back pain, which would require LFS. Nonetheless, they have a higher risk of perioperative complication development compared with individuals who are not obese. Methods: Patients who underwent LFS at hospitals that participated in the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database withi...

However, in CLL-like monoclonal B cell lymphocytosis (MBL) studies are scarce. Herein, a comprehensive characterization of the microenvironment in 59 MBL, 56 early stage CLL and 31 healthy controls was conducted. Gene expression arrays and qRT-PCR were performed on RNA from CD4+ peripheral blood cells; ser...
