STING-Associated Vasculopathy with Onset in Infancy in Three Children with New Clinical Aspect and Unsatisfactory Therapeutic Responses to Tofacitinib
ConclusionsNew clinical aspect of diffuse alveolar hemorrhage is first reported to be associated with SAVI. Unsatisfactory therapeutic effects of tofacitinib are observed in this study and further evaluations are needed.
Gene Variant in the NF-κB Pathway Inhibitor NFKBIA Distinguishes Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis within the Spectrum of Psoriatic Disease. Biomed Res Int. 2019;2019:1030256 Authors: Coto-Segura P, Coto E, González-Lara L, Alonso B, Gómez J, Cuesta-Llavona E, Queiro R Abstract Background and Aims: The NF-κB pathway has been implicated in the genetic aetiology of psoriatic disease. However, since most patients with arthritis have psoriasis, discerning the genetic contributions to both aspects of psoriatic disease is not easy. Our aim was to study the association of common pol...
CONCLUSIONS: These data impose a closer follow-up of smokers and pre-neoplastic cases and the utility of the broadspectrum polymerase chain reaction assay in laryngeal dysplastic and cancer lesions. This study may allow to develop biomarkers for early detection or recurrence surveillance, to identify therapeutic targets, and to begin individualization of treatment based on the biology of these tumours. KEY WORDS: HPV infection, Larynx, Laryngeal chronic hyperplastic inflammation, Squamous cell carcinoma. PMID: 31814599 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: The findings reveal that marine organisms could be a promising source of novel antiinflammatory agents. However, further investigations are suggested for the isolation and identification of bioactive, exploring the mechanism of action and evaluating the efficacy in various inflammatory conditions.

ConclusionCT based dimensions in our population is different from other population. Based on this study, a design modification of nails used in present day management of proximal femur fractures has been recommended.
Conclusion: Iterative algorithms I30-1 with iMAR algorithm improves image quality during antenna positioning and placement for CT-guided MWA and is applicable over a range of exposure settings. PMID: 31814464 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusions: All the three techniques are feasible for intraoperative HCC thermal ablation. Compared with CEUS, FI techniques are more suitable in patients with ALBI grade 2 and 3, multiple tumors, and in tumors at risky locations. PMID: 31813295 [PubMed - in process]
Macrophages are heterogeneous leukocytes regulated in a tissue- and disease-specific context. While in vitro macrophage models have been used to study diseases empirically, a systematic analysis of the transcriptome thereof is lacking. Here, we acquired gene expression data from eight commonly-used in vitro macrophage models to perform a meta-analysis. Specifically, we obtained gene expression data from unstimulated macrophages (M0) and macrophages stimulated with lipopolysaccharides (LPS) for 2–4 h (M-LPSearly), LPS for 24 h (M-LPSlate), LPS and interferon-γ (M-LPS+IFNγ), IFNγ (M-IFNγ), inter...

(Reuters)—The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Friday approved Amgen Inc.’s biosimilar copy of Johnson &Johnson’s blockbuster rheumatoid arthritis drug, Remicade (infliximab), according to the regulator’s website. The biosimilar, Avsola (infliximab-axxq), has the same chemical components, dosage form and strength as Remicade and would treat a range of autoimmune disorders. The label for the... [Read More]
Publication date: Available online 9 December 2019Source: International Journal of PharmaceuticsAuthor(s): Sakshi Tomar, Sarbani Chakraborti, Akshita Jindal, Maninderjeet Kaur Grewal, Renu ChadhaAbstractThe effectiveness of Diacerein as an anti-osteoarthritis drug is limited due to its acutely poor aqueous solubility and bioavailability. The present study demonstrates cocrystallization as a successful technique to improve the biopharmaceutical parameters of diacerein. Three cocrystals of diacerein were prepared by an eco-friendly technique with three suitable coformers namely isonicotinamide, nicotinamide, and theophylline...
