Abstract Checkpoint inhibitors are a form of immunotherapy that have revolutionized treatment for malignant melanoma, resulting in longer survival and better disease control. Multiple autoimmune disorders can occur with the use of checkpoint inhibitors, including severe, potentially fatal neurologic complications. Although neurologic complications are uncommon, their early recognition and treatment is required. The purpose of this article is to present information on neurologic complications of ipilimumab and nivolumab to inform nursing practice. Recommendations for evaluation and treatment of neurologic complicat...

When the medical management is ineffective or surgery is primarily requested, several surgical approaches can be used. Among these, minimally invasive surgery might be preferred. Myomectomy is the standard surgical treatment when fertility sparing is claimed. It can be performed via laparoscopy, robotic surgery and hystero...

Authors: Maiuri L, Raia V, Piacentini M, Tosco A, Villella VR, Kroemer G Abstract Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the most frequent lethal monogenetic disease affecting humans. CF is characterized by mutations in cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), a chloride channel whose malfunction triggers the activation of transglutaminase-2 (TGM2), as well as the inactivation of the Beclin-1 (BECN1) complex resulting in disabled autophagy. CFTR inhibition, TGM2 activation and BECN1 sequestration engage in an 'infernal trio' that locks the cell in a pro-inflammatory state through anti-homeostatic feedforward lo...
