Albumin In Situ Hybridization Can Be Positive in Adenocarcinomas and Other Tumors From Diverse Sites.

CONCLUSIONS: Albumin ISH was expressed in all HCCs studied. It was also positive in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma and patchy positive in gallbladder adenocarcinoma and a subset of other neoplasms, which can be a potential pitfall. PMID: 31107526 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Cancer diagnosis should always be considered in patients with unprovoked thrombosis and, if NSCLC is diagnosed, genetic alterations should be always sought after. A possible relation between venous thromboembolism and oncogenic drivers, particularly for ALK translocations, has been hypothesized. Similarly to ALK-positive NSCLC, ROS1 rearranged disease has been associated with an increased thromboembolic risk. Further studies are needed to better evaluate this relation and to evaluate the potential benefit of a prophylactic anticoagulating treatment in this subset of patients.

Conclusion: Planning, targeting, and controlling of RFA were well supported by MRI with acceptable time. MRI-guided RFA for small HCCs in the hepatic dome is safe and effective with fewer RF sessions. PMID: 32066293 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 19 February 2020Source: Antiviral ResearchAuthor(s): Anthony T. Tan, Sophia SchreiberAbstractChronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection remains a major global concern due to its high prevalence and the increased probability of progressing toward cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). While currently available therapies are effective in controlling HBV replication, they rarely achieve functional cure. Similarly, effective treatment options for HBV-related HCC (HBV-HCC) are limited and primarily applicable only for early stages of the disease. With the general success of chimeric anti...

A previous study has reported that sex-determining region Y box 4 (SOX4) promotes HBV replication by binding to the AACAAAG motif in the viral geno...

Abstract The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the clinical profiles and treatment outcomes of patients with lung cancer admitted to the Medical Psychiatric Unit (MPU), which is built for patients with physical and severe psychiatric disorders. All medical records of patients with lung cancer admitted to the MPU of Tachikawa hospital were reviewed. The clinical outcomes of these patients were retrospectively evaluated between January 2010 and December 2016. A total of 24 patients in the MPU were histologically or cytologically diagnosed with primary lung cancer. Of these, 20 patients had schizophrenia, ...

This study aimed to evaluate SPINK1's prognostic value and its role in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) progress.Methods: We use tissue micro-arrays containing 273 tumor and paired para-tumor tissues to evaluate SPINK1's prognostic value in HCC. CCK8 cell proliferation assay, wound healing assays, transwell migration and invasion assays were performed to explore the effect of SPINIK1 on HCC cells. The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database and Gene set enrichment analysis (GSEA) were used to verify the prognosis value of SPINK1 in HCC and explore the underlying mechanisms.Results: SPINK1 expression was significantly higher in t...

Since this type of malignancy indicates no capsular and vascular invasions, adenoma and follicular carcinoma of thyroid are not distinguishable. It has been proved that microRNAs, which regulate approximately 30% of coding proteins, have an association with follicular thyroid adeno...

The objective of the study was to assess the diagnostic accuracy of ultrasonography in detecting nodular lesions in patients with subacute thyroiditis. We conducted a longitudinal study involving 710 patients with subacute thyroiditis who underwent ultrasonographic examinations in a single center between 2008 and 2018. These examinations were performed at initial diagnosis and during follow-up, with subsequent evaluation of nodules using fine needle aspiration cytology. Ultrasonographic examination used for the initial screening of thyroid nodules in patients with subacute thyroiditis showed a sensitivity of 72.4%, specifi...
