CONCLUSION: The best of our knowledge it is the third description of brachial plexus schwannoma associated with breast cancer and the first with a synchronous association. The knowledge of this pathology and its potential to alter treatment justify the reporting of the present case. PMID: 32083563 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Hessam S, Bechara FG Abstract Hidradenitis suppurativa/acne inversa (HS/AI) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. Several studies showed that perianal, perineal and gluteal involvement is more common in men. Axillary, submammary and inguinal localizations seem to be more prevalent in women. Involvement of the genitoanal region is associated with a higher reduced quality of live and sexual health compared to other locations. Moreover HS/AI in the genitoanal region can lead to serious complications. The knowledge of perianal fistula formation, pubogenital lymphedema and squamous cell carcinoma, w...

This study aimed to evaluate fertility in female survivors of childhood DTC by assessing various reproductive characteristics combined with anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) levels (a marker of ovarian reserve). Methods. Female survivors of childhood DTC, diagnosed at ≤18 years of age between 1970 and 2013 were included. Survivors were excluded when follow-up time was less than 5 years or if they developed other malignancies before or after diagnosis of DTC. Survivors filled out a questionnaire regarding reproductive characteristics (e.g. age at menarche and menopause, pregnancies, pregnancy outcomes, need for assisted ...

Authors: Zhang Y, Ying X, Zhao Q, Ma J, Zhang D, He C, Han S Abstract Background: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a malignant tumor associated with a poor prognosis. Serum biomarkers of HCC have the potential to improve the diagnosis, provide a means to monitor the tumors, and predict their malignancy. Proteins that are expressed differentially between HCC patients and normal controls have the potential to be biomarkers. Method: Serum samples from 10 confirmed HCC patients and 10 controls were collected. The differentially expressed proteins in the serum were identified using an isobaric tags for relative and...

ConclusionThis audit revealed large numbers of cases of femoral metastases. Although the use of endoprostheses may be increasing in Trauma Units, intramedullary nailing still predominates. Future pathways may benefit from referring patients directly to arthroplasty surgeons.

Authors: Yasuda D, Ohe T, Takahashi K, Imamura R, Kojima H, Okabe T, Ichimura Y, Komatsu M, Yamamoto M, Nagano T, Mashino T Abstract Resistance to anticancer agents has been an obstacle to developing therapeutics and reducing medical costs. Whereas sorafenib is used for the treatment of human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), resistance limits its efficacy. p62, a multifunctional protein, is overexpressed in several HCC cell lines, such as Huh-1 cells. Phosphorylated p62 (p-p62) inhibits the protein-protein interaction (PPI) between Keap1 and Nrf2, resulting in the Nrf2 overactivation that causes drug resistance. We ...

ConclusionsLI-RADS shows high diagnostic accuracy in diagnosing of HCC with a pooled sensitivity of 0.86 and specificity of 0.85, and specificity is higher for LR-5 or LR ≥ 5. However, further prospective studies of LI-RADS are needed to elucidate its value for diagnosing of small HCCs (≤20 mm).

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...
