Missed proximal radioulnar joint translocation with ulnar nerve entrapment: an unusual injury in a child

We report an unusual case of a missed PRUJ translocation with ulnar nerve entrapment in a 10-year-old child. The key to diagnosing the translocation is the position of the proximal radius, which lies medial to the ulna. This was treated by open reduction and release of the entrapped nerve. The ulnar nerve palsy recovered fully at the 1-year follow-up. Although PRUJ translocation with ulnar nerve entrapment is a rare injury, a successful outcome is possible with timely open reduction and release of the ulnar nerve.

Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 regulatory subunit-associated protein 3 (CDK5RAP3) was identified as a tumor suppressor in gastric cancer, while, minichromosome maintenance complex component 6 (MCM6), which is closely related to the initiation of DNA replication, was reported to be upregulated in multiple malignancies. However, the interaction between these two proteins has not been investigated in gastric cancer. Here, we evaluate the connection between CDK5RAP3 and MCM6 using mass spectrometry and immunoprecipitation. In cells, cell growth and invasiveness indicate that CDK5RAP3 acts as a tumor suppressor by preventing the eff...

Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC) is the second most common skin cancer. Dihydromyricetin (DHM), a Rattan tea extract, has been shown to have antitumor activity with no obvious toxicity to normal cells in vitro and in vivo. However, its efficacy in the treatment of CSCC and the underlying antitumor mechanism has not been fully elucidated yet. In our study, DHM increased autophagic flux in the A431 cells, as evidenced by the upregulation of LC3-II and downregulation of P62/SQSTM1. Moreover, the pharmacological or genetic blocking autophagy decreased DHM-induced cell death, indicating DHM triggered autophagic cell dea...

In this study, we analyzed 5-hmC levels and TET mRNA expression in a well-characterized dataset of 117 matched pairs of HNSCC tissues and normal tissues. 5-hmC levels and TET mRNA expression were examined via enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and quantitative real-time PCR, respectively. 5-hmC levels were evaluated according to various clinical characteristics and prognostic implications. Notably, we found that 5-hmC levels were significantly correlated with tumor stage (P = 0.032) and recurrence (P = 0.018). Univariate analysis revealed that low levels of 5-hmC were correlated with poor disease-free survival (DFS; log-ran...

CONCLUSIONS: Fenretinide exerts an obvious effect on AML cells both in vitro and in vivo. Besides, the NR4A1-mediated signaling pathway is highly involved in the fenretinide-induced apoptosis of AML cells.

Abstract Xp11 translocation renal cell carcinoma (RCC), a member of the microphthalmia-associated transcription factor (MiTF) family, is a rare renal tumor characterized by different translocations involving the TFE3 gene. Here, we reported a case of Xp11 translocation RCC with a rare MED15-TFE3 gene fusion by RNA sequencing. Morphologically, the tumor cells were arranged in a solid and small nest pattern. The cytoplasm was voluminous, flocculent eosinophilic, and vacuolated. The nuclei were round or polygon with fine granular chromatin, and the nucleoli were unconspicuous. Psammoma bodies were observed in mesench...

Aucubin (AU), a natural iridoid glucoside, possessing remarkable anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidation activity, has been used to treat diabetic complications. However, underlying mechanism of protective action in DN remains unclear. In the present study, AU significantly alleviated albuminuria, glomerular extracellular matrix expansion, renal fibrosis, and inflamm...

Hypomethylation level ofMIR ‐378 was significantly higher in myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients than that in controls (p = .034).MIR ‐378‐hypomethylated patients had significantly shorter overall survival than those withoutMIR ‐378 hypomethylation (p = .036). Both Kaplan–Meier and Multivariate Cox analyses confirmed that hypomethylation ofMIR ‐378 5 ’‐flanking region is an adverse prognosticator in MDS, particularly in patients
