Incidence of soft tissue sarcoma in Taiwan: A nationwide population-based study (2007–2013)

ConclusionSTS incidence varied by histological subtype, sex, age, and primary site in an Asian population. Our results suggested regional and racial discrepancies in the incidence rates of certain STS subtypes.

We report the case of a 17-year-old patient with recurrent hemorrhagic pericardial effusion, who was diagnosed with primary pericardial fibrosarcoma. However, multiple radiological examinations, including CT and [18F] FDG/PET-CT, suggested the presence of fluid and no sign of tumor. Actually, when a patient presents with recurrent hemorrhagic pericardial effusions, pericardial tumors must be taken into account as part of the differential diagnosis.

We describe a contiguous gene deletion of the ATM locus in a multi-generation family of Italian descent with a strong family history of pancreatic cancer. A deletion of one copy of the entire ATM gene was identified by routine panel testing and further characterized by chromosomal microarray analysis. An 11q22.3 microdeletion of approximately 960kb was identified that is predicted to result in loss of 10 genes including ATM. The deletion was identified in two additional family members including a presymptomatic daughter and an affected sibling. A normal disomic complement of the 11q22.3 region was detected in a third famil...

ConclusionsThis case series demonstrates that the use of a high frequency jet ventilator for cardiac MRI was feasible, safe, providing good quality cardiac imaging and avoiding anesthesia personnel to be inside the hazardous environment of MRI room. Future studies are needed to confirm its safety and efficiency in pediatric patients.ResumoJustificativa e objetivosA ressonância magnética (RM) cardíaca é uma técnica utilizada na avaliação de crianças com cardiopatias congênitas. A anestesia geral garante imobilidade, especialmente em pacientes não cooperador...

ChenAbstractA 42-year-old woman presented with a ten-day history of dysphagia, slight chest pain and occasional vomiting. With the performance of thoracic and abdominal enhanced computed tomography (CT) and upper gastrointestinal contrast, once esophageal cancer was suspected. Significant activity mass in esophagus and mediastinal lymph nodes could be found on the imaging of 18F-FDG PET/CT, which also supported malignancy. However, T...

CONCLUSIONS IQGAP3 may be a potential target gene for Kaempferol in the treatment of BC, and upregulation of IQGAP3 inhibits Kaempferol-induced apoptosis in BC cells by ERK1/2 signaling activation. Targeting IQGAP3 may contribute to the study of natural phytochemicals as anti-tumor drugs in BC. PMID: 31605603 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 12 October 2019Source: Materials Today: ProceedingsAuthor(s): A. Saikiran, M. Vivekanand, M. Prahalad, S. Yuvan, N. RameshbabuAbstractMicrowave synthesis of nanocrystalline Zn/Mg substituted and Zn/Mg-F co-substituted hydroxyapatites is reported in this study. Substitution of Zn/Mg is expected to increase the bioactivity, whereas the fluorine substitution is aimed for the attainment of chemical and thermal stability of the hydroxyapatite. The thermal stability of the nanopowders was studied by annealing the samples at 900 °C for 2 h. The phase composition and crystallite size of t...

Dlamini, Zhenyu Cui, Jianxin LiAbstractPolysulfone (PSF) and Styrene Maleic Anhydride (SMA) were blended by thermally induced phase separation method in the preparation of membranes for water treatment. Dipropylene Glycol Dibenzoate (DPGDB) was used as a diluent which was extracted using ethanol. The increase in SMA concentration was positively confirmed by monitoring the intensity of the peak at 1779 cm−1 characteristic to CO in the Attenuated Total Reflectance Fourier Transform In...
