Dermatopathology practice in ethiopia.

Conclusions.-The range of cutaneous diseases observed in skin biopsies at ALERT was varied and included inflammatory dermatoses (27%), infectious diseases (24%), and malignant and benign cutaneous neoplasms (22% and 20%, respectively). The most common conditions observed in this study were squamous cell carcinoma (8% of total cases), eczema (6% of total cases), leishmaniasis (6% of total cases), tuberculosis (6% of total cases), and benign nevi (4% of total cases).

CONCLUSIONS: Three USP steroids resulted significantly altered in our PCa population. These preliminary results, combined with the simplicity and low-cost of the analysis, open to further investigation of the potential role of this restricted USP in PCa diagnosis.

Authors: Bozzini G, Seveso M, Romero Otero J, Osmolorskij B, Garcia Cruz E, Margreiter M, Verze P, Besana U, Buizza C Abstract BACKGROUND: Frozen section analysis (FSA) is frequently performed during partial nephrectomy (PN). We investigate the utility of intraoperative FSA by evaluating its impact on final surgical margin (SM) status. METHODS: Between January 1995 and December 2005 we prospectively analysed a series of patients who were treated with open PN for Renal Cell Carcinoma. During PN each patient underwent a FSA on renal parenchyma distal margin . If FSA was positive for infiltration a deeper excision...

Authors: Twumasi C, Asiedu L, Nortey ENN Abstract Several mathematical and standard epidemiological models have been proposed in studying infectious disease dynamics. These models help to understand the spread of disease infections. However, most of these models are not able to estimate other relevant disease metrics such as probability of first infection and recovery as well as the expected time to infection and recovery for both susceptible and infected individuals. That is, most of the standard epidemiological models used in estimating transition probabilities (TPs) are not able to generalize the transition esti...

This study aimed to determine whether brevilin A has anti-melanoma effects, and whether STAT3 signaling is involved in the effects.Main methodsA mouse A375 xenograft model, as well as A375 and A2058 cell models were employed to assess the in vivo and in vitro anti-melanoma effects of brevilin A. A375 cells stably expressing STAT3C, a constitutively active STAT3 mutant, were used to determine the role of STAT3 signaling in brevilin A's anti-melanoma effects.Key findingsIntraperitoneal injection of brevilin A dose-dependently inhibited melanoma growth in mice and suppressed STAT3 phosphorylation in the tumors. In cultured ce...

Publication date: Available online 13 December 2019Source: Life SciencesAuthor(s): Yang Li, Yu-zheng Ge, Luwei Xu, Ruipeng JiaAbstractCircular RNAs (circRNAs) are a new type of endogenous noncoding RNAs with closed circular structure. Emerging evidence indicates that circRNAs play crucial roles in many biological processes by regulating linear RNA transcription, downstream gene expression and protein production. Meanwhile, recent studies have suggested that circRNAs have the potential to be oncogenic or anti-oncogenic and play vital regulatory roles in the initiation and progression of tumors. Circular RNA itchy E3 ubiquit...

Publication date: Available online 14 December 2019Source: Inorganica Chimica ActaAuthor(s): Kallol Purkait, Arindam MukherjeeAbstractQuinone based compounds display activation in hypoxia, an environment prevalent in tumours. We have synthesized a bis(pyrazole) based 1,4-quinone compound suitable for metal chelation. The quinone (L2) converted to hydroquinone (H2L1) during the complex synthesis leading to [RuII(η6-p-cym)(H2L1)Cl](PF6) (1). We found from 1H NMR studies that in the methanolic solution L2 stoichiometrically converted to H2L1 while oxidizing the methanol to formaldehyde. L2 crystallized in monoclinic space...

Abstract It is of interest to assess the clinical and pathological aspects of Gallbladder and biliary tract carcinomas confirmed by histological data. It is also of further interest to evaluate the link between Helicobacter pylori and biliary tract cancers. Eighty-nine (89) cases (mean age 60±12 years) of Gallbladder and biliary tract cancer confirmed by histological data were enrolled for the study at the Department of Pathology in Mohammed VI University Hospital, in Morocco. The data such as age, sex, clinical and histo pathological features were collected. Bile duct specimens were investigated for H. pyl...

Authors: Abad CL, Razonable RR Abstract INTRODUCTION: Tuberculosis (TB) in solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Its management in transplant recipients is difficult and highly complex, given the underlying immunosuppression and the risks of drug-drug interactions imposed by immunosuppressive drugs that are needed to maintain the transplant allograft.Areas covered: We provide a brief review of TB in SOT, and discuss the clinical indications, mechanisms of action and drug resistance, drug-drug interactions, and adverse effects of anti-TB drugs. We provide a s...
