We studied an adult with de novo acute monocytic leukemia and a dismal outcome where her leukemic cells harbored an acquired rare jumping translocation (JT). We used oligo-based array CGH (oaCGH) analysis, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), and 24-color karyotyping to enhance the characterization of the JT. G-banding detected a JT involving the 3q13.3-qter chromosomal segment and the recipient chromosomal regions 17p, 8q, and 15q. Each clone with JT was associated with trisomy 8. oaCGH analysis revealed an additional submicroscopic deletion in 3q13...

Chemokine (CC-motif) receptor-like 2 (CCRL2) is a decoy receptor and regulates the local responses of the chemokine chemerin. Recently our group has shown that the functional chemerin receptor, chemokine-like receptor 1 (CMKLR1), correlates with fibrosis and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) score in males only. In our current study, we wanted to know whether CCRL2 shows similar correlations as CMKLR1. Therefore, we analyzed the hepatic expression of CCRL2 in murine NASH and in liver tissues obtained from 85 patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and 33 controls...

1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3) has recently been found to have the anti-inflammatory potential to suppress experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), an animal model of multiple sclerosis; however, its direct effect on neural cells is not clear. In the current study we show that 1,25(OH)2D3 treatment effectively suppressed clinical signs of ongoing EAE and reduced inflammation and demyelination scores in the central nervous system (CNS). The treatment significantly decreased production/expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines IFN-γ, GM-CSF and IL-17A, while it increased anti-inflammatory cytokines IL-4 and IL-10...

Due to the limited data on diabetic ketoacidosis and brain edema (DKA/BE) in children/adolescents and the lack of recent data on adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D), we addressed the question of whether neuroinflammation was present in the fatal DKA of adults. We performed immunohistochemistry (IHC) studies on the brains of two young adults with T1D and fatal DKA and compared them with two teenagers with poorly controlled diabetes and fatal DKA. C5b-9, the membrane attack complex (MAC) had significantly greater deposits in the grey and white matter of the teenagers than the young adults (p=0...

Lung cancer has the highest mortality rate amongst human cancers and the majority of deaths can be attributed to metastatic spread. The miR-34 family includes three tumor suppressive miRs: miR-34a, miR-34b and miR-34c. miR-34 downregulation is a frequent observation in human malignancies and is often attributed to hypermethylation of the miR-34a and miR-34b/c promoters. Here, the potential association between aberrant miR-34 expression and promoter methylation and distant metastases formation in lung adenocarcinoma (LAC) is investigated...

Multiple myeloma (MM) is characterised by intense protein folding and, consequently endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress. The prostaglandin 15d-PGJ2 is able to raise oxidative stress levels within the cell and potentially trigger cell death. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antineoplastic effect of 15d-PGJ2 on MM in vitro and in vivo via ER and oxidative stress pathways. MM.1R and MM.1S cell lines were treated with 15d-PGJ2 at 1-10μM and evaluated with regard to proliferation, mRNA expression of PRDX1, PRDX4, GRP78, GRP94, CHOP, BCL-2 and BAX...

Telomere length (TL) has been associated with several health conditions including cancer. To quantify the effect of TL on outcomes in malignancies and explore the role of type of TL measurement we conducted a librarian-led systematic search of electronic databases identified publications exploring the prognostic role of TL on cancer outcomes. Overall survival (OS) was the primary outcome measure while other time-to-event endpoints were secondary outcomes. Data from studies reporting a hazard ratio (HR) with 95% confidence interval (CI) and/or p-value were pooled in a meta-analysis...

The ablation of Mig-6 has been shown to induce tumor formation in various tissues. However, the relationships between Mig-6 expression, clinical pathological factors, and prognosis have not been clarified in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and the mechanism by which Mig-6 regulates the proliferation of HCC cells has not been reported. In this study, we investigated the clinical significance of the loss of Mig-6 expression in HCC and the mechanism underlying the inhibition of cell proliferation by Mig-6. The down-regulation of Mig-6 correlated significantly with large tumors, a more advanced BCLC stage, and a more advanced TNM stage, and low Mig-6 expression predicted significantly reduced survival...

The acute-phase response (APR) is an inflammatory process triggered mainly by IL-6 in response to neoplasm, tissue injury, infection or inflammation. Signaling of IL-6 is transduced by activating STAT3 which rapidly results in production of acute-phase proteins (APPs) such as fibrinogen β (FGB) and haptoglobin (HP). Augmenter of liver regeneration (ALR), a hepatotrophic factor supporting liver regeneration, was reported to be upregulated after liver damage. In this study we analyzed the role of ALR for IL-6 signaling and APR...

Animal studies have demonstrated that neonatal hyperoxia injures the distal small intestine and disrupts the intestinal barrier. This study evaluated the effects of brief hyperoxia exposure on intestinal function in newborn rats. Newborn Sprague-Dawley rat pups were exposed to room air or normobaric hyperoxia (85% O2) for 1week. The rats were euthanized on Postnatal Day 7, and their terminal ilea and sera were collected for histological analyses and intestinal permeability measurements, respectively. Bacterial translocation to the liver and spleen under aerobic and anaerobic conditions was determined...

Myocardial infarction (MI) is associated with intense immune and inflammatory responses which contribute to tissue injury. Increasing evidence indicates that the glucocorticoid-induced leucine zipper (GILZ) protein suppresses immune and inflammatory responses. However, the status of and the role of GILZ in MI are not known. We tested the hypotheses that a) MI reduces cardiac GILZ associated with intense inflammation and cell death and b) intramyocardial GILZ delivery confers cardioprotection in association with increased Tregs and suppression of inflammation...

Hyperoxaluria is a stress that leads to calcium oxalate crystal deposition which further causes inflammation and renal cell necroptosis. Many studies have linked osteopontin expression with apoptosis and inflammation but so far its association with apoptosis with regard to hyperoxaluria is undiscovered. Moreover, a recent report has suggested that osteopontin induces endoplasmic reticulum stress and subsequently apoptosis in myocytes. In this study, the impact of hyperoxaluria on the modulation of osteopontin expression and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress mediated apoptosis in rats is explored...

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most prevalent cancer in the world. Globally, it has been estimated that about 1.4 million new cases of colorectal cancer are diagnosed every year. CRC is a multifactorial disease that arises due to genetics as well as epigenetic alterations in a number of oncogenes, tumor suppressor genes, mismatch repair genes, as well as cell cycle regulating genes in colon mucosal cells. These molecular alterations have been considered as potential CRC biomarkers because they can provide the physicians with diagnostic, prognostic and treatment response information...
