How to deep freeze an entire organ —and bring it back to life
MINNEAPOLIS— The rat kidney on the operating table in front of Joseph Sushil Rao looked like it had been through hell. Which it had—a very cold one. Normally a deep pink, this thumbnail-size organ was blanched a corpselike gray. In the past 6 hours, it had been plucked from the abdomen of a white lab rat, pumped full of a black fluid, stuck in a freezer cooled to –150°C, and zapped by a powerful magnet. Now, in a cramped, windowless room on the 11th floor of the University of Minnesota’s (UMN’s) Malcolm Moos Health Sciences Tower, Rao lifted the kidney from a small plastic box and gently laid it...

What Are Common Gastrointestinal Polyposes in Children?
Discussion Bloody stools or blood in the diaper is a relatively common complaint in general pediatrics. For most patients it is often a minor concern. Commonly it is a transient problem (e.g. rectal fissure caused by constipation or trauma) or often not blood (e.g. urate crystals in the diaper, food, menses, etc.). Real blood does occur with an identifiable cause such as long distance running or heavy exercise, or milk protein allergy/sensitivity that improves with a milk-restricted diet. Many more serious causes are associated with heavier or more recalcitrant bleeding, increased defecation, abdominal pain, poor eating an...

Kidney cancer: The lesser-known danger sign found in the way you sleep warning of risk
KIDNEY cancer: Every year, more than 41,000 men and 24,000 women get kidney and renal pelvis cancers, and about 9,000 men and 5,000 women die from these diseases. As with most serious diseases, the earlier the detection and treatment, the better the outcome. If your sleeping habits have changed, this could be an early warning sign of kidney cancer.

Mesothelioma Surgery with Organ Removal Extends Survival
Removing major organs to achieve a more complete cancer resection did not increase severe complications or hinder survival benefits of aggressive surgery for patients with peritoneal mesothelioma, according to a recent report. The increased complexity of organ resection surgery will not adversely affect long-term outcomes, according to the multicenter study published in Annals of Surgical Oncology. By comparison, an incomplete cytoreduction that can spare the organs is associated with increased mortality and shorter overall survival. The study, which involved 174 patients across 12 specialty centers within the U.S., accent...

Macroscopic somatic clonal expansion in morphologically normal human urothelium
In this study, we investigated somatic clonal events in morphologically normal human urothelium (MNU; epithelium lining the bladder and ureter) and identified macroscopic clonal expansions. Aristolochic acid (AA), a natural herb-derived compound, was a major mutagenic driving factor in MNU. AA drastically accelerates mutation accumulation and enhances clonal expansion. Mutations in MNU were widely observed in chromatin remodeling genes such as KMT2D and KDM6A but rarely in TP53, PIK3CA, and FGFR3. KMT2D mutations were found to be common in urothelial cells, regardless of whether the cells experience exogenous mutagen expos...

Study could be first step in providing personalized care to patients with ureteral stents
(Lawson Health Research Institute) Published today in Cell Reports Medicine, researchers at Lawson Health Research Institute and Western University conducted a novel microbiome study to examine bacteria associated with ureteral stents. They found that nearly all the stents, whether visibly coated or not, had unique bacterial profiles that were most associated with a patient's medical condition rather than antibiotic use. For patients with ureteral stents, they may benefit from a personalized approach to care and antibiotic treatment. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)
