In conclusion, it remains unclear if brain-specific regional and temporal changes occur in the expression of the different APP variants during AD progression. Since APP is also found in blood cells, assessing the changes in APP mRNA expression in peripheral blood cells from AD patients has been considering an alternative. However, again the quantification of APP mRNA in peripheral blood cells has generated controversial results. Brain APP protein has been analyzed in only a few studies, probably as it is difficult to interpret the complex pattern of APP variants and fragments. We previously characterized the soluabl...

Case Summary: A 28-year-old nulliparous woman presented with rectal bleeding. Colonoscopy revealed a 4-cm malignant-appearing mass in the proximal rectum, and biopsies confirmed invasive adenocarcinoma of the rectum. Computed tomography scan showed no evidence of metastatic disease. Staging MRI found transmural extension with minimal stranding in the adjacent fat, as well as no evidence of pathological pelvic adenopathy, consistent with a T3N0 lesion. The proposed treatment plan involved neoadjuvant chemotherapy and radiation therapy before primary surgical resection. The patient desired fertility preservation and was re...

The medical diagnostics industry has been moving steadily from centralized testing toward a decentralized model that brings testing ever closer to the patient. The benefits of point-of-care (POC) interventions are significant, and new technologies have expanded the options of home testing, while new generations of testing kits offer enhanced accuracy, reliability, and speed. Detection and monitoring are especially critical for diseases such as HIV, Hepatitis C (HVC), and colon cancer, and POC technologies can encourage early detection and better testing compliance as they are more accessible for patients. They are also les...

Conclusion Provoked venous thromboembolism is an entity that can be prevented. Malignancy and surgical treatment are the most common risk factors and these patients should be treated with special care. The creation of a register of patients with venous thromboembolism in Bosnia and Herzegovina would enable the development of a preventive strategy in the groups of patients at risk.
