Symptoms and demographic factors associated with early-onset colorectal neoplasia among individuals undergoing diagnostic colonoscopy
Conclusions: In the largest study to date of symptomatic individuals under 50 years of age undergoing colonoscopy in the USA, advanced CRN was most often detected in the distal colon and was associated with anemia, but not with abnormal bowel habits or abdominal pain. We also found that patients with CRN under 50 years of age were more likely to be male, smokers, and obese. These findings should prompt further investigation of these risk factors alone and in combination.
AbstractCohen syndrome (CS) is an autosomal recessive congenital disorder, characterized by hypotonia, intellectual disability, developmental delay, microcephaly, progressive retinopathy, neutropenia, truncal obesity, joint laxity, characteristic facial, ophthalmic, oral and appendage abnormalities, and an over friendly behavior. It has been linked to mutations in theVPS13B gene. The main purpose of this study was to determine the genetic cause of CS in an Indian family. Whole exome sequencing (WES) was used to identify the genetic cause of CS in the family. The WES analysis identified a homozygous novel duplication mutati...

Cancer therapies could potentially be more effective if their development took into account the cells that give rise to tumor-fighting cells.
A study suggests the potential for a noninvasive diagnostic that could detect tumors early and differentiate between disease types.
Better understanding the CD8+ T cells already present in tumors could be key to making immunotherapies work for more patients.
I have a late 30's female patient with a history of leukemia (bone marrow transplant, chemo, nephrectomy), who has lateral hip and thigh pain. Unilateral pain. No obvious exacerbating or alleviating factors. Moderate to severe intensity, constant. She's got femoral diaphysis infarctions, several of them, and they match up exactly where she hurts. The lateral hip distribution isn't the main focus, it is the proximal and lateral thigh. She's got buttock pain as well, which was positive on... Bone pain?
