460PA phase Ia/b first-in-human, open-label, dose-escalation, safety, PK and PD study of TP-0903 in solid tumours

ConclusionsThe oral small molecule AXL kinase inhibitor TP-0903 is well tolerated with a manageable safety profile. Hematologic toxicity was observed as a DLT. Future studies will evaluate the role of TP0903 in selected disease cohorts as monotherapy and in combination. Serum soluble AXL will be evaluated as a potential predictive biomarker of response.Clinical trial identificationNCT: 02729298.Legal entity responsible for the studyTolero Pharmaceuticals, Inc.FundingTolero Pharmaceuticals, Inc.DisclosureJ.

Since Invitae’s inception a decade ago, the firm has been working for the proactive use of genetic information in mainstream medicine. The San Francisco, CA-based company has been using M&A activity to help bring companies under its tent to help make this goal a reality. On Monday, the genetic-testing specialist made more progress on this front by announcing it would put down $50 million to acquire Clear Genetics, a company that develops digital counseling software. San Francisco, CA-based Clear Genetics has developed Gia, a chatbot that equips patients with actionable information throughout the genetic t...

Abstract Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) have emerged as a new immune regulator at the feto-maternal interface. Although the phenotypes and functions of these cells were primarily studied in pathological conditions such as cancers and infections, new evidence has underscored their beneficial roles in homeostasis and physiological circumstances such as normal pregnancy. In this regard, studies have shown an increased number of MDSCs, particularly granulocytic MDSCs, at the feto-maternal interface. These cells participate in maintaining immunological tolerance between mother and semi-allograft fetus through...

For the majority of these diseases, the molecular understanding of the basis of their initiation and progression remains unclear. As such, limited clinical progress in prognosis or therapeutic regimens have been made over the past few decades. Proteomics techniques are being increasingly utilised in the field of sarcoma research. Proteomic research efforts h...

(Elsevier) A new study in The American Journal of Pathology, published by Elsevier, reports that medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA), the active ingredient in the common contraceptive injection Depo-Provera, was effective in preventing the development of cervical cancer in mice with precancerous lesions. The drug also decreased existing precancerous lesions. If proven effective clinically, MPA may be a boon to women who do not have access to human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines.

We describe the case of a 64-year-old man who came to the emergency room due to acute heart failure and intermittent gastrointestinal bleeding. Treatment involves initial correction of anemia and heart failure followed by aortic valve replacement. The prosthesis used depends on the characteristics of each patient and valve replacement allows the resolution of bleeding in most cases. Gastrointestinal bleeding in patients with aortic stenosis is associated with severity of the valve obstruction. A mechanical prosthesis was used with no recurrent bleeding even with the need for lifelong anticoagulation therapy.

We report an adolescent girl with SLE, autoimmune thyroiditis and distal RTA who subsequently developed autoimmune hemolytic anemia. During a follow up of almost 7 years the girl never developed any proteinuria while the RTA persisted. Also during this period her mother was also diagnosed with SLE manifesting as thrombocytopenia.

Authors: Shahbazi M, Smailnejad Ganji K, Mirzakhani M, Mohammadnia-Afrouzi M, Akbari R Abstract Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a common disease in the world that has adverse outcomes.  Immune systems and its components have important roles in the initiation, progression and complications of this disease by systemic inflammation.  Regarding the role of kidneys in the body's natural homeostasis and its relationship with other organs, CKD causes impairments in other organs. Patients with chronic renal failure have variety of complications, such as cardiovascular disease, anemia, bone disorders, immune dysfu...
