Conclusions: The abnormal location of FLT3 caused by different glycosylation status leads to the distinguishing signaling pathways. Targeting on FLT3 glycosylation may provide a new perspective for therapeutic strategies.

Authors: Yoo JJ, Yu SJ, Lee B, Cho EJ, Lee JH, Kim SG, Kim YJ, Kim YS, Yoon JH Abstract Background/Aims: Patients with an intermediate stage of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) represent a highly heterogeneous population; therefore, many models have been proposed to predict the survival of these patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic performance of a novel subclassification for tumors classified as Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) stage B using the Model to Estimate Survival in Ambulatory HCC patients (MESIAH). Methods: This analysis was based on 377 patients with HCC treated at Seoul ...

UCLA Health hospitals in Westwood and Santa Monica were ranked No. 1 in both Los Angeles and California and No. 5 in the nation in U.S. News and World Report’s annual honor roll. The state and local rankings evaluate hospitals’ quality in nine relatively common procedures and treatments: abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, aortic valve surgery, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, colon cancer surgery, care for congestive heart failure, heart bypass surgery, hip replacement, knee replacement and lung cancer surgery. “By any measure, UCLA Health delivers the highest quality care available,” said John...

Conclusions In most cases, the cause of CC passage is surgery for colorectal cancer or repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm. A mild-to-severe presentation is dependent upon the bowel-wall layers affected by ischaemia and which therefore are included in the CC. PMID: 27241609 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Washington, DC (Oct. 6, 2015) -- U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) reliance on obsolete data to omit CT colonography (known as virtual colonoscopy) from the list of recommended exams in their latest draft colorectal cancer (CRC) screening recommendations may be a significant blow to efforts to raise colorectal cancer screening rates. This exclusion may result in countless unnecessary deaths and unnecessary health care spending. Under the Affordable Care Act, private insurers are only required to cover (with no copay) exams given a grade of “B” or higher. Medicare determines coverage separately. ...
