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 ...

To better understand and interpret the trends in cutaneous research, we carried out a network analysis of all the titles of the submitted abstracts of the annual meetings of the European Society of Dermatological Research (ESDR), including the International Investigative Dermatology (IID) meetings between 2010 and 2019. Network analysis is a data science tool to process, analyze, and visualize big sets of data. As expected, psoriasis was the frontrunner in each of the annual meetings, followed by dermatitis and melanoma.

ConclusionsThe method was used successfully to process a large dataset to classify atrophy, to measure alveolar height parameters, and to quantify maxillary sinus volume, bottom volume and pneumatisation.Clinical relevanceApart from the anthropometric value of the generated dataset, the method could be applied to provide additional and more accurate data to assess the necessity of bone augmentation in the context of three-dimensional planning before implantation.

CONCLUSIONS: The study does not seem to exclude that the lethality of COVID-19 may be climate sensitive. Future studies will have to confirm these clues, due to potential confounding factors, such as pollution, population age, and exposure to malaria. PMID: 32767354 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Zhao YL, Yuan BQ, Shen GS Abstract OBJECTIVE: To explore the mechanism of RET gene mediated EGFR signaling pathway on the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), proliferation and apoptosis of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) cells. PATIENTS AND METHODS: PTC TPC-1 cells and human normal thyroid follicular epithelial cells Nthy-ori 3-1 were collected to identify the expression of RET in PTC. Seven groups were divided according to different transfection protocols, including blank group, negative control group, si-RET group, oe-RET group, AG-490 group, NSC 228155 group, and si-RET + NSC 228155 group.

Authors: de Sire A, Losco L, Cisari C, Gennari A, Boldorini R, Fusco N, Cigna E, Invernizzi M Abstract OBJECTIVE: Axillary web syndrome (AWS) is a complication of surgical procedures in breast cancer (BC) patients. This condition with poorly understood incidence and etiology is characterized by the locoregional development of scar tissue, leading to subcutaneous cording, motion impairment and pain. The early identification of patients at risk for AWS would improve their clinical management. Here, we sought to characterize the prevalence of and the risk factors associated with AWS in BC women after surgery. PATI...

In conclusion, SCC of rectum is a distinct entity and it is important to shed some light on this rare condition because it has different epidemiology, etiology, pathogenies and requires a different treatment approach than other colorectal carcinomas. Surgery is the primary treatment which consists of local excision versus radical resection and the need for adjuvant therapy. Abstract ID: 38 Figure 1
