Predictors of symptomatic lymphocele after kidney transplantation
ConclusionWe found multiple heterogeneous predictors for SL with a common denominator related to surgical management of the retroperitoneal space, peritoneum and the ureter. Future prospective studies are necessary to evaluate the influence of these variables on the development of SL.
CONCLUSIONS: While none of described methods enables the simultaneous measurement of all microcirculatory parameters, certain techniques are widely used in arterial hypertension research, while others gain popularity in screening. PMID: 32969283 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Podda GM, Fiorelli EM, Birocchi S, Rambaldi B, Di Chio MC, Casazza G, Cattaneo M Abstract Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) can be associated with lymphoproliferative diseases (LPD) or solid tumors. A systematic review of published literature was conducted to evaluate response to treatment of ITP secondary to malignancy. Primary outcome was overall response (complete response+response) to first-line treatments [steroids alone or in combination with intravenous immunoglobulins (IVIg)]. Among secondary outcomes, overall response to second-line treatments [splenectomy, rituximab or thrombopoietin receptor agonist...
Conclusions and Relevance: Lacking strong evidence indicating significant patient risk for vaginal laser treatment of GSM, the FDA safety communication appears unsubstantiated and implies gender bias. Identified complications suggest most reported “adverse events” represent lack of treatment effect. The well-documented benefits and low risk of adverse event suggest laser therapy for GSM is reasonable with appropriate pretreatment counseling. Additional randomized, well-controlled clinical trials are needed to further elucidate both the safety and efficacy of this nonhormone therapy.

Authors: Montefusco V, Mussetti A, Sala MR, Martinelli G, Cerchione C Abstract Proteasome inhibitors (PIs) represent a recently developed drug class that inhibit the ubiquitinproteasome system, thus interfering with the intracellular machinery who has the duty of misfolded proteins disposal. Myeloma plasma cells are structurally aimed at the production of large quantities of immunoglobulins. This explains their vulnerability to any perturbation of intracellular protein homeostasis. Bortezomib is the first-in-class PI and nowadays, in combination with other compounds, is the cornerstone of multiple myeloma (MM) trea...
