Due to the complexity of such a response, most immunological studies have focused on a few genes, proteins, or cell types. With the development of “omic”-technologies and computational analysis methods, attempts to analyze and understand complex system dynamics are now feasible. However, the decomposition of transcriptomic data sets generated...

CONCLUSION: Pregnancy outcomes after hysteroscopic placement of a microinsert for hydrosalpinx management before embryo transfer were comparable to those following laparoscopic proximal tubal occlusion or salpingectomy. However, caution is advised regarding microinsert placement for hydrosalpinges before proceeding with assisted reproductive technology. PMID: 32224160 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Zhou S, Wei J, Wang Y, Liu X Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a leading cause of cancer-associated mortality worldwide. Despite clinical advances, the survival rate of patients with HCC remains low, as most patients are diagnosed with HCC when they are already at the advanced stage. Certain circular RNAs (circRNAs) are closely associated with the development of liver cancer. In the present study, a circRNA array was performed to screen differentially expressed circRNAs in HCC tissues. The further analysis focused on the newly identified circRNA_101237, the host gene of which, cyclin-dependent kin...

Authors: Li L, Zheng Y, Zheng Q, Jiang J Abstract The present study aimed to investigate the antiproliferative effect of embryonic stem cell-conditioned medium (ESC-CM) on the mouse liver cancer Hepa1-6 cells in vitro. Furthermore, in order to elucidate the underlying molecular mechanism, the microRNAs (miRNAs) in ESC-CM associated with the inhibition of Hepa1-6 proliferation were identified. Following the co-culture of ESC-CM and Hepa1-6 in Transwell chambers, the proliferation, cell cycle, apoptosis and associated protein expression were determined in Hepal-6 cells. Moreover, miRNA array analysis was employed to ...

In spite of the recent approval of new promising targeted therapies, the clinical outcome of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) remains suboptimal, prompting the search for additional and synergistic therapeutic rationales. It is increasingly evident that the bone marrow immune environment of AML patients is profoundly altered, contributing to the severity of the disease but also providing several windows of opportunity to prompt or rewire a proficient antitumor immune surveillance. In this Review, we present current evidence on immune defects in AML, discuss the challenges with selective targeting of AML cells, an...

Conclusions: Older adults who begin using cannabis are likely using for what they perceive to be medicinal purposes for a range of issues. However, they receive minimal guidance from their family physicians and instead obtain information from non-clinician sources.Clinical implications: Cannabis screening should be included in geriatric assessments and medicine reconciliation. Continuing education for clinicians needs to address knowledge gaps about cannabis use among older adults. PMID: 32223535 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Researchers at University of Arizona College of Medicine have invented a new device that provides oxygen and support for people that need respiratory assistance for the COVID-19 outbreak. The device is a small-scale, low-pressure rebreathing system that removes carbon dioxide and introduces a mixture of helium and oxygen to the respiratory airways. The device could help a coronavirus patient earlier in the process and might reduce the need for ventilators. Phoenix-based startup S aiOx licensed…
