CONCLUSIONS: Previously published literature has suggested a strong link between HPV and neoplasia of the lacrimal system. HPV has previously been demonstrated in all TCP and TCC. This is in contrast to our data, particularly for transitional cell papilloma where, in the largest sample of transitional cell papilloma in the literature thus far, we did not find a strong association with HPV. This casts doubt on the role of HPV in the papillomatous process in the lacrimal apparatus. PMID: 32251492 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
AbstractAssessment of individual therapeutic responses provides valuable information concerning treatment benefits in individual patients. We evaluated individual therapeutic responses as determined by the Disease Activity Score-28 joints critical difference for improvement (DAS28-dcrit) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients treated with intravenous tocilizumab or comparator anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF) agents. The previously published DAS28-dcrit value [DAS28 decrease (improvement) ≥ 1.8] was retrospectively applied to data from two studies of tocilizumab in RA, the 52-week ACT-iON observational stud...
We report a series of 10 cases classified as AE, in attempt to further characterize this lesion. The patients ranged in age from 24 to 72 yr (mean, 39.7 yr) and the commonest presenting complaint was abdominal pain. Operative findings usually comprised small peritoneal nodules and/or fibrous adhesions, predominantly involving the pelvis. The lesions were either mesothelial or submesothelial in location and typically exhibited mixed tubular and papillary architecture, sometimes with minor components of solid, cribriform or single cell growth. Epithelial multilayering was present in all cases but usually involved
Despite the common perception that the human papilloma virus (HPV) is a requirement for the development of cervical cancer (CC), a considerable number of CCs test HPV negative. Presently, many countries are shifting to HPV primary CC screening, and it is of importance to increase the knowledge about the group of CCs that test HPV negative. The aim of this study was to reinvestigate a proportion of cervical tumors with a primary negative or invalid test result. Reinvestigation with repeated genotyping (targeting L1) was followed by analysis with an alternative target method (targeting E6/E7) on existing or additional tumor ...
We report a 55-yr-old woman who presented with bilateral ovarian masses, 11 yr after hysterectomy for superficially invasive stage IA1 cervical adenocarcinoma of usual (human papillomavirus–associated) type. The bilateral ovarian tumors were composed of glands lined by malignant mucinous epithelium and these tumors were metastases from her previous cervical adenocarcinoma, based on morphology, immunophenotype, and positive in situ hybridization for human papillomavirus. In addition, there was extensive involvement of the mucosa of the left fallopian tube by malignant mucinous epithelium. The patient is alive a...
We report the asymptomatic case of endocervical schistosomiasis without visible exocervical lesions in a 41-yr-old Malagasy woman with human papillomavirus-positive status detected during a cervical cancer screening campaign in Andilampanahy, Madagascar. Schistosomiasis involving only the endocervical canal is rarely reported and can be diagnosed histologically with endocervical brushing, which therefore represents a minimally invasive and well-tolerated tool for disease detection.

ConclusionsNon-specific symptoms including headache, fatigue and dizziness feature prominently in serious AE reports from females in Denmark. Our analysis identified a cluster of reports, likely media stimulated, with a focus on symptoms of CFS and POTS. PMID: 31088598 [PubMed - in process]
