The Dual Blockade in the Neoadjuvant Setting of HER-2 Positive Early-Stage Breast Cancer.
Authors: Pop L, Suciu ID, Ionescu O, Ionescu P, Toader OD Abstract Patients with positive Her-2/neu breast cancer and a high risk of recurrence are known to benefit from the addition of the dual blockade of Her-2/neu with Trastuzumab and Pertuzumab to the neoadjuvant chemotherapy, a combination which has been demonstrated to give a higher rate of a complete pathologic response in the breast and in the axilla. The purpose of this review is to outline the efficacy of the dual blockade with Trastuzumab and Pertuzumab in the neoadjuvant treatment of high-risk Her-2 positive breast cancer.

Cellular Interactions in the Human Fatty Liver.
Authors: Sovaila S, Purcarea A, Gheonea D, Ionescu S, Ciurea T Abstract Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis morbidity and mortality is on the rise due to the obesity pandemic. Its pathophysiology is not well understood and implies complex interactions between local hepatic cells populations, adipocytes, immune effectors that lead to hepatic lipid excess, lipotoxicity, cellular stress and inflammation, as well as programmed cell death. A better understanding of these pathogenic interactions would allow better identification of therapeutic targets in a disease that has no known pharmacological therapy until now. PMID: ...

CD 200 - A useful marker in chronic B lymphoprolipherative disorders.
Conclusions: CD200 has a great impact in diagnosing B- chronic lymphoproliferative disorders, especially when we want to determine the origin of a CD19, CD5 positive population and distinguish between CLL and MCL. CD 23 is a reliable marker in those cases, but, as we showed, CD23 might have a lower specificity than CD200 for CLL. We added CD200 in our panels in order to diagnose chronic lymphoproliferative disorders, not to replace CD 23, but to improve and save time in our diagnostic process. The high expression of CD200 in CLL and HCL could open the option for new- targeted therapy (anti-CD200). PMID: 31803290 [PubMe...

Assumptions and conceptual contributions to improve the global assistive performance of actual wheelchairs, in order to enhance the users' autonomy and quality of life.
Discussion: The wheelchair particularities that we pursue, and which are distinguished from the other models, is the fact that the wheelchair is powered, pliable and allows verticalization, hopefully at a price comparable or even lower than the current state of the art models (but none of them succeeded by now to fulfil all this three basic functions on a single "all in one" such device). Hence, if our optimized prototype will achieve technical and clinical validation, this will result in a significant enhancement of autonomy and QoL for the users.

Photoplethysmography as a Potential Alternative to Electrocardiography for Recording Heart Rate Intervals Used in Variability Analysis.
This study investigates the use of photoplethysmography (PPG) as a comfortable alternative to electrocardiography (ECG) for heart rate variability (HRV) analysis. Although HRV is typically analyzed from an ECG trace, PPG poses a likely alternative, as arterial pulsations and peripheral tissue perfusion (as measured by PPG) are coupled with cardiac electrical activity (as measured by ECG). PPG may be more desirable in some clinical circumstances, as a fingertip optical sensor is more comfortable for patients than ECG electrodes, and can reduce waste by not needing to be disposed after each use.

Surgical options in extensive burns management.
Conclusions & discussion: This paper is designed as a guideline and instruction manual to help those with less experience through particular situations in surgical burn care. Early excision and immediate coverage of the burn wounds represent nowadays the standard care for extensive burned patients. For patients with massive thermal injury, temporary coverage with allografts is essential. The use of allograft has multiple benefits because it plays both as physiologic and mechanical barriers.
