Molecular Characterization and Antifungal Susceptibility of Clinical Fusarium Species From Brazil
Conclusion In conclusion, F. keratoplasticum and F. petroliphilum were the most frequent species in this study. Amphotericin B showed lower MICs against Fusarium species whereas the antifungal azoles and the fungicide difenoconazole exhibited higher MICs against FSSC. Ethics Statement Samples were collected during routine patient care and the study was retrospective, therefore it was determined by the local Institutional Review Board of the Hospital de Clínicas, Federal University of Paraná and CAPES that ethical clearance was not indicated. Author Contributions PH, AA-H, FQ-T, and JM designed the study. PH and AA-H performed the experiments and wrote the first draft. RP, MM, MN, FQ-T, GH, and JM analyzed the data and revised the manuscript. All authors contributed to the writing and approved the final manuscript. Funding The work of PH was supported by Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel, but is currently supported by “Instituto Nacional de Ciência e Tecnologia de Inovação em Doenças de Populações Negligenciadas.” Conflict of Interest Statement JM received grants from F2G and Merck. He has been a consultant to Scynexis and Merck and received speaker’s fees from Merck, United Medical, TEVA and Gilead Sciences. The remaining authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential...
Authors: Pennisi PA, Fernández MC, Martin A Abstract Pheochromocytomas/paragangliomas (PCCs/PGLs) are rare neuroendocrine tumors, developed from chromaffin cells derived from the neural crest. From a genetic point of view PCCs/PGLs are divided as sporadic cases, and inherited cases as part of hereditary (familial) syndromes. While the majority is benign, up to 26% of PCCs/PGLs will undergo malignant transformation. Validated prognostic pathological parameters for malignant PCCs/PGLs are still lacking. Signaling that follows the interactions between IGFs and their receptor/s in tumor cells received extensive ...
Authors: Blumenfeld O, Hampe CS, Shulman L, Chen R, Laron Z Abstract Recent epidemiological surveys performed in Australia, USA and Israel demonstrate that Rotavirus vaccination correlates with an attenuated prevalence and/or incidence of early childhood diabetes (T1D). Other studies failed to confirm the above. PMID: 32780950 [PubMed - in process]
The turmoil and devastating destruction of World War II had also ruined dermatology across Europe. In contrast, the Society of Investigative Dermatology (SID; founded in 1937) in the United States functioned successfully and soon became a role model for the leaders of dermatology departments in various European countries. Our former teachers in dermatology succeeded in overcoming the prejudice and animosity in the western world. This outcome was the conception of the founding fathers (there was no founding lady in the initial group) of the European Society for Dermatological Research (ES DR).
The European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR) has been my home in skin research since the mid-1980s when I started training as a dermatology resident and physician scientist in Z ürich, Switzerland. After active research contributions to the annual meetings for many years, I became a member of the ESDR board and then Secretary Treasurer from 1999 to 2001, followed by the ESDR presidency in 2002. Characteristic for my time in the ESDR leadership was pursuit of scientific exc ellence at the meetings, international growth, and intersociety collaboration.
On behalf of all the Japanese Society for Investigative Dermatology (JSID) members, we would like to congratulate the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR) on its 50th anniversary! It must have been a long and winding road to achieve the current big success of ESDR, which always provides a harmonious and welcoming atmosphere to people attending its meetings from around the world. Although each country in European communities has a different background, ESDR unites people with the same aim to advance investigative dermatology and cutaneous biology.
When I started my clinical training in dermatology in 1981 and got involved in basic research in 1984, in those days for young German-speaking dermatology researchers, there was one important scientific meeting, the meeting of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Dermatologische Forschung (ADF, Association of Dermatological Research). Presenting an abstract at this meeting was a must, and having been selected for oral presentation was an extraordinary achievement. There was another extremely important forum, the meeting of the Society of Investigative Dermatology (SID).
Having been involved in the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR) from the 1980s, we have had the opportunity to observe the spectacular development of our society from early small meetings in the Netherlands to major international meetings held in many European centers. Our first ESDR meetings were notable because of the stimulating and friendly atmosphere with full sharing of ideas and new discoveries, even prepublication. Such an atmosphere has been preserved over time and has generated many research partnerships, including our own collaboration in keratinocyte (KC) biology and genetic skin diseases.
Prof Sam Shuster (born on 24 August 1927, London) was a founding board member and then the President of the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR). He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, member of various dermatological and science associations, and an honorary member of many foreign academy societies. He is an emeritus professor of dermatology from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom.
