Authors: Jabalee J, Towle R, Lawson J, Dickman C, Garnis C Abstract Neutral sphingomyelinase 2 (nSMase2), the product of the sphingomyelin phosphodiesterase 3 (SMPD3) gene, catalyzes the hydrolysis of sphingomyelin to ceramide. Ceramide acts on various signaling pathways to influence cell proliferation, survival, and stress response. Altered levels of sphingolipids and ceramides have been reported in various cancer types, including oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). OSCC patients exhibit a poor 5-year survival rate of 50%, a figure that has remained stagnant for decades. To overcome this requires a better underst...

Authors: Carey RM, Rajasekaran K, Seckar T, Lin X, Wei Z, Tong CCL, Ranasinghe VJ, Newman JG, O'Malley BW, Weinstein GS, Feldman MD, Robertson ES Abstract Oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) represents the most common HPV-related malignancy in the United States with increasing incidence. There is heterogeneity between the behavior and response to treatment of HPV-positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma that may be linked to the tumor virome. In this prospective study, a pan-pathogen microarray (PathoChip) was used to determine the virome of early stage, p16-positive OPSCC and neck metastasis treate...

PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study includes 1,805 patients with renal tumors who were surgically treated at the Department of Urology at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf between 1994 and 2015. The co...

ConclusionsCardiac effects after severe late-onset PE were small and transient. This indicates that left ventricular hypertrophy after severe late-onset PE may be a secondary physiologic response to increased peripheral resistance in PE. Vascular mechanisms rather than persistent cardiac hypertrophy postpartum may be the culprit for increased long-term cardiovascular risk after PE.

This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) and PNES-epilepsy coexistence within all video-electroencephalography (EEG) monitoring unit (VEMU) referrals and to identify semiological and electrophysiological features to differentiate patients with PNES-epilepsy coexistence from PNES-only.MethodsWe retrospectively reviewed medical files, VEMU reports, and videos of 1983 adult patients. Demographical, historical, clinical, neuroimaging, and electrophysiological parameters of all patients were recorded. We classified patients into five groups as definite PNES-only, definite PNES-e...

CONCLUSION: For the first time, we could show that a larger oxytocin-induced attenuation of amygdala response to fearful faces is associated with lower subjective craving for alcohol and percentage of heavy drinking days in social drinkers. Modulation of amygdala activation, induced by emotional stimuli, might represent a neurobiological substrate of oxytocin's protective effects on drug seeking behavior.

Colonoscopy with polypectomy is frequently performed in pediatric patients based on symptoms, with the majority of polyps identified being benign juvenile pedunculated polyps with a vascular stalk. This is in distinction to adults where polypectomy is often performed as part of a colon cancer screening and prevention strategy and a higher fraction of polyps are sessile and or dysplastic. In adults, polypectomy techniques emphasize a need for deeper resection to ensure complete resection of adenomas or potential carcinoma in situ. Adenomatous polyps can occur in the pediatric age group and may be associated with an underlyi...
