WHO Highlights Human to Human Transmission Concerns From Wuhan Coronavirus as Death Toll Rises to 133

Chinese officials confirmed Wednesday that the number of people infected by a new form of coronavirus in the country has reached more than 6,000, a total that surpasses the official cases tallied on the mainland during an outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2002 and 2003. SARS infected 5,237 people in mainland China, and killed almost 800 people across the world. The new SARS-like form of coronavirus has killed 133 people in China and more than 3,500 cases have been confirmed in Hubei, the province where Wuhan is located, according to a virus tracker maintained by researchers at Johns Hopkins University, which uses numbers from China’s National Health Commission and DXY.cn, an online medical professional network. The disease, which is believed to have originated in a seafood market in the Chinese central city of Wuhan, has also spread to other countries, including the U.S., where five cases have been confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The World Health Organization (WHO) stated Wednesday that it is reconsidering whether to declare a global public health emergency as part of their response to the novel coronavirus outbreak. The agency highlighted concerns about human-to-human transmission, especially in Germany, Vietnam and Japan, as well as the “rapid acceleration” of confirmed cases of the disease. An emergency committee will reconvene Wednesday to make a decision, the WHO said. Last week, the committee de...

Authors: Nakata E, Sugihara S, Sugawara Y, Nakahara R, Furumatsu T, Tetsunaga T, Kunisada T, Nakanishi K, Akezaki Y, Ozaki T Abstract Malignant spinal cord compression (MSCC) is a serious complication of cancers. The present study aimed to establish a multidisciplinary treatment system for urgent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and referral to orthopedists in order to prevent neurological deficits caused by MSCC. In the present study, the extent to which this system achieved early diagnosis and treatment and prevented MSCC-caused neurological deficits was examined. The records from patients with neurological defic...

Authors: Kang Y, Cui Y, Tan M Abstract Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is an epithelial malignancy of the head and neck that is prevalent in China. The present study investigated the molecular mechanisms of microRNA-212 (miR-212) and E74-like factor 3 (ELF3) in NPC cell lines and tissues. Using reverse transcription-quantitative PCR, the present study identified that miR-212 expression was downregulated in NPC cell lines and tissues. Furthermore, an elevated expression level of miR-212 was revealed to inhibit NPC cell proliferation, as determined using a cell counting kit-8 assay in vitro. ELF3 was identified as a d...

Authors: Wang QS, Wei SR, Xiao HL Abstract Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer-associated mortality in China with 85% of patients having non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Identifying NSCLC driver genes and prognostic markers is critical to reducing these numbers. The studies of retinoblastoma binding protein 6 (RBBP6) performed on NSCLC is limited. The present study aimed to investigate the molecular function and the prognostic potential of RBBP6 in NSCLC using the A549 cell line and patient samples, respectively. The functional effect on cancer cell proliferation and prognostic value of RBBP6 were exa...
