Purpose of review Subcutaneous implants are a promising technology to enable long-acting parenteral delivery of antiretroviral drugs (ARV) because they may be able to provide protective drugs concentrations for a year or longer following a single implant. The present review covers the current status of preclinical and clinical development of antiretroviral implants. Recent findings Over the past three decades, subcutaneous implants have been widely used for long-acting hormonal contraception and the treatment of hormonally-driven malignancies. They are economical and scalable to manufacture, but require special proced...

Abstract Condensation of rhodanine (1) with pyrazol-3(2H)-one derivatives (2a-f) gave 5-substituted-2-thioxo-1,3-thiazolidin-4-one derivatives (3a-f). Reaction of compound (1) with 2-arylmethylidene-malononitrile (4a-d) yielded the unexpected derivatives (5a-d). The latter compounds were subjected to cyclization reactions with malononitrile under different basic conditions, hydroxylamine hydrochloride and/or thiourea to furnish the fused thiazole derivatives (6a-d) and (8-10a-d). Coupling of (1) with diazotized aromatic amines (11a-c) in pyridine afforded the arylhydrazones (12a-c). Fusion of latter compounds with...

Authors: Guo D, Xu P, Guan C, Xu Y, Yang Y, Xu J, Zhou R, Chen B Abstract Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a hepatotropic and a lymphotropic virus. An association between HBV and hematologic malignancies has been determined previously; however, the association between HBV infection and multiple myeloma (MM) remains controversial. The present study aimed to assess the prevalence of HBV infection in patients with MM, and investigate their characteristics and prognostic significance. The clinical data of 165 patients with MM who had received at least four cycles of chemotherapy between April 2008 and February 2017 at Nanjin...

Checkpoint inhibitor (CPI) immunotherapy has ushered cancer treatment to a potential curative era. However, the unchecked immune responses may lead to vital organ damage that requires an immunosuppressive therapy and carries a high risk of opportunistic infections1. Here we present an unusual case of necrotizing soft tissue infection secondary to Aspergillus fumigatus in a patient with solid tumor treated with immunosuppressants due to immune related adverse events (irAEs).

Conclusions In conclusion, articles in this Research Topic made a very significant contribution to our understanding of the role played by environmental factors, dysbiotic conditions, and infections in triggering diseases. Since this is a rapidly expanding area of research, many other factors contributing to the onset of these diseases are not covered here. We are confident, however, that further studies will expand the list as well as bring a better understanding of mechanisms involved in the onset of autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases. Author Contributions All authors listed have made a substantial, direct and i...

Authors: Majima S, Okachi S, Asano M, Wakahara K, Hashimoto N, Sato M, Ishigami M, Hasegawa Y Abstract Invasive tracheobronchial aspergillosis (ITBA), a rare form of invasive pulmonary Aspergillus infection (IPA), is predominantly confined to the tracheobronchial tree. We herein report a case of ITBA with severe necrotic pseudomembrane in a 57-year-old woman with fulminant hepatitis and hemophagocytic syndrome. Bronchoscopic findings revealed a widespread pseudomembranous formation of the trachea and bronchi. Aspergillus fumigatus was cultured from bronchial lavage fluid, and the histological findings of an endobro...
