Endoscopic Assessment of the Malignant Potential of the Nonpolypoid (Flat and Depressed) Colorectal Neoplasms

This article provides information on assessment of the malignant potential of colorectal neoplasms. It takes a modern approach on the topic and integrates relevant information that aligns with the thinking process. The theory of thinking fast (reflex) and slow (rational) is used. By doing so, it is hoped that the learning process can be expedited and practiced immediately. The focus is on preresection assessment of nonpolypoid colorectal neoplasms. Assessment of polypoid, sessile-serrated adenoma/polyp, or inflammatory bowel disease dysplasia is briefly discussed.

We report the results from a study evaluating a commercially available artificial pelleted diet for bass and live feed (fathead minnows). Following a six-month diet-acclimation period, age-0 smallmouth bass were assessed using morphometric measures, histologic and immune-function end points using conventional methods, miniaturized cell isolation and assay methods as well as imaging flow cytometry. Fish on the two diets did not significantly differ in length, weight, or condition factor, indicating that growth was similar in the two groups. Histologic examination revealed relatively higher levels of macrophage aggregates an...

AbdelrahmanABSTRACTNewly established green TLC-densitometric and RP-HPLC methods were developed and validated for simultaneous determination of quetiapine (QUT) (an antipsychotic drug) and the co-administrated drug, paroxetine (PAR) (an antidepressant drug). Both drugs are widely prescribed for treatment of bipolar depression. The proposed TLC-densitometric method was based on separation of the studied components and the internal standard (vincamine (VINC)) ...

However, there is no symmetric study reported on association between B[a]P exposure during the early development and hippocampal dendritic architecture causing behavioral changes like learning and memory deficit of adult rats. We investigated a fourteen day consecutive B[a]P administration, intrap...

CONCLUSION: Patients' qualitative feedback highlighted the potential feasibility and adaptability of the program for this population. The results of this preliminary study show promising avenues for research in the field of cancer patients' adaptive coping enhancement as well as reduce anxiety and depression symptoms. This type of workshop can be considered as complementary to individual psychotherapies as they may tap into different mechanisms that help foster psychological flexibility as the group format enhances decentering processes. Further research avenues are proposed in order to assess the efficacy of such interven...

Publication date: Available online 16 October 2019Source: Trends in GeneticsAuthor(s): Detlev ArendtThe freshwater cnidarian Hydra has been studied for centuries for its unique regenerative capacities. Whole-body single-cell transcriptomics now reveal cellular lineages and gene regulatory networks that build the Hydra polyp. For the first time, transcription factor signatures allow direct comparison of the polyp body plan between Hydra and sea anemone.
