ConclusionsIn Japanese LEMS patients, the long ‐term neurological outcome is generally favorable. Our results also suggest that even in LEMS with SCLC patients, successful treatment for their cancer could result in sustained improvement of neurological symptoms.

This study, for the first time, shows that transplantation of non-autologous mitochondria from healthy skeletal muscle cells into normal cardiomyocytes leads to short-term improvement of bioenergetics indicating "supercharged" state. However, over time these improved effects disappear, which suggests transplantation of mitochondria may have a potential application in settings where there is an acute stress.

Smith-Lemli-Opitz Syndrome (SLOS) is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder affecting the final step of cholesterol biosynthesis. SLOS is characterized by slow growth before and after birth, mental retardation, and multiple congenital disabilities. There is no FDA approved treatment for SLOS. Patients may benefit moderately from palliative care through an increase in dietary cholesterol to compensate for the endogenous block in cholesterol biosynthesis. However, dietary change offers only limited clinical benefit in mental improvement because the level of cholesterol or 7-DHC in the cerebrospinal fluid is not signific...

Abstract The solute carrier family 16 (SLC16) is comprised of 14 members of the monocarboxylate transporter (MCT) family that play an essential role in the transport of important cell nutrients and for cellular metabolism and pH regulation. MCTs 1-4 have been extensively studied and are involved in the proton-dependent transport of L-lactate, pyruvate, short-chain fatty acids, and monocarboxylate drugs in a wide variety of tissues. MCTs 1 and 4 are overexpressed in a number of cancers, and current investigations have focused on transporter inhibition as a novel therapeutic strategy in cancers. MCT1 has also been u...

Conclusion: We only opted for a treatment-sparing approach for patients with severe disabilities, and their OS was in line with that of children without intellectual disability.What is Known:• There are few reports on children/adolescents with cancer and intellectual disability (ID).• It is not clear how to manage them and whether a treatment sparing should be considered, especially in the case of severe disability.What is New:• Most patients received the standard cancer treatment and only in the case of severe disability, a therapeutic saving approach was applied.• No statistically significant correlat...
