d-Serine modulates N-methyl d-aspartate receptors (NMDARs) and regulates synaptic plasticity, neurodevelopment, and learning and memory. However, the primary site of d-serine synthesis and release remains controversial, with some arguing that it is a gliotransmitter and others defining it as a neuronal cotransmitter. Results from several laboratories using different strategies now show that the biosynthetic enzyme of d-serine, serine racemase (SR), is expressed almost entirely by neurons, with few astrocytes appearing to contain d-serine...

The electrocardiographic QRS duration, a measure of ventricular depolarization and conduction, is associated with cardiovascular mortality. While genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with QRS duration at 22 loci among those of European descent, the genetic architecture of QRS duration in non-European populations is largely unknown. We therefore performed a GWAS meta-analysis of QRS duration in 13,031 African Americans from ten cohorts and a transethnic GWAS meta-analysis with additional results from populations of European descent...

Radiation is being used for patients with primary and secondary liver cancers, as a rapidly evolving treatment. However, postradiation imaging changes of the liver are not well understood and therefore challenging to interpret. Distinguishing normal radiation changes from residual or recurrent disease is difficult. Size and contrast enhancement have been used to guide interpretation and clinical recommendations, but normal radiation changes can make interpretation difficult and are not accounted for in available guidelines...

PURPOSE: We previously reported clinical outcomes and physician-reported toxicity of gemcitabine and hypofractionated stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC). Here we prospectively investigate the impact of gemcitabine and SBRT on patient-reported quality of life (QoL). METHODS AND MATERIALS: Forty-nine LAPC patients received 33 Gy SBRT (6.6 Gy daily fractions) upfront or after ≤3 doses of gemcitabine (1000 mg/m(2)) followed by gemcitabine until progression...

OBJECTIVE: Yttrium-90 (Y-90) radioembolization is an emerging treatment option for unresectable neuroendocrine liver metastases (NELM). However, the data regarding this treatment are currently limited. This study evaluates the efficacy and tolerability of Y-90 radioembolization and identifies prognostic factors for radiographic response and survival. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Thirty-eight patients underwent Y-90 radioembolization for NELM at our institution between April 2004 and February 2012...

BACKGROUND: Retroperitoneal sarcomas are rare tumors that can be locally aggressive with high rates of recurrence. Given that data on survival in patients with retroperitoneal sarcomas are conflicting, we sought to use a nationwide cancer database to identify factors associated with survival in patients with retroperitoneal sarcomas. METHODS: The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database was utilized to identify patients with retroperitoneal sarcomas from 2002 to 2012...

BACKGROUND: Improved cancer therapeutics and enhanced cancer survivorship have emphasized the severe long-term side effects of chemotherapy. Specifically, studies have linked many chemotherapy agents with primary ovarian insufficiency, although an exact insult model has not yet been determined. To investigate and ultimately solve this problem, a novel device for extended study of mammalian ovaries in vitro was developed. METHODS: A bioreactor was fabricated for bovine ovarian culture that provides intravascular delivery of media to the ovary through isolation and cannulation of a main ovarian artery branch...

AIM: This study aimed to assess the progression-free and overall survival of patients with residual microscopic disease following neoadjuvant chemoradiation and rectal resection for locally advanced rectal cancer. METHODS: Two-hundred and thirty-four consecutive rectal cancer patients who had neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy followed by radical resection (5/2000-4/2012) were divided according to pathologic tumor response: residual microscopic disease (MIC), complete response (pCR), and partial/no response (nonCR)...

BACKGROUND: Carbon dioxide (CO2) inhalation, a biological challenge and pathologic marker in panic disorder, evokes intense fear and panic attacks in susceptible individuals. The molecular identity and anatomic location of CO2-sensing systems that translate CO2-evoked fear remain unclear. We investigated contributions of microglial acid sensor T cell death-associated gene-8 (TDAG8) and microglial proinflammatory responses in CO2-evoked behavioral and physiological responses. METHODS: CO2-evoked freezing, autonomic, and respiratory responses were assessed in TDAG8-deficient ((-/-)) and wild-type ((+/+)) mice...

The American College of Radiology Appropriateness Criteria® are evidence-based guidelines for specific clinical conditions that are reviewed every 3 years by a multidisciplinary expert panel. The guideline development and review include an extensive analysis of current medical literature from peer-reviewed journals and the application of a well-established consensus methodology (modified Delphi) to rate the appropriateness of imaging and treatment procedures by the panel. In those instances where evidence is lacking or not definitive, expert opinion may be used to recommend imaging or treatment...

The genetic architecture of common traits, including the number, frequency, and effect sizes of inherited variants that contribute to individual risk, has been long debated. Genome-wide association studies have identified scores of common variants associated with type 2 diabetes, but in aggregate, these explain only a fraction of the heritability of this disease. Here, to test the hypothesis that lower-frequency variants explain much of the remainder, the GoT2D and T2D-GENES consortia performed whole-genome sequencing in 2,657 European individuals with and without diabetes, and exome sequencing in 12,940 individuals from five ancestry groups...

IMPORTANCE: Although consensus statements support the preoperative treatment of borderline resectable pancreatic cancer, no prospective, quality-controlled, multicenter studies of this strategy have been conducted. Existing studies are retrospective and confounded by heterogeneity in patients studied, therapeutic algorithms used, and outcomes reported. OBJECTIVE: To determine the feasibility of conducting studies of multimodality therapy for borderline resectable pancreatic cancer in the cooperative group setting...

We explore and exploit diffraction effects that have been previously neglected when modelling optical measurement techniques for the bending of micro-mechanical transducers such as cantilevers for atomic force microscopy. The illumination of a cantilever edge causes an asymmetric diffraction pattern at the photo-detector affecting the calibration of the measured signal in the popular optical beam deflection technique (OBDT). The conditions that avoid such detection artefacts conflict with the use of smaller cantilevers...

Pancreatic cancer is an aggressive cancer that continues to have single-digit 5-year mortality rates despite advancements in the field. Surgery remains the only curative treatment; however, most patients present with late-stage disease deemed unresectable, either due to extensive local vascular involvement or the presence of distant metastasis. Resection guidelines that include a borderline resectable group, as well as advancements in neoadjuvant chemotherapy and radiation that improve resectability of locally advanced disease, may improve outcomes for patients with more invasive disease...

PURPOSE: To provide evidence-based recommendations to oncologists and others for treatment of patients with locally advanced, unresectable pancreatic cancer. METHODS: American Society of Clinical Oncology convened an Expert Panel of medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology, gastroenterology, palliative care, and advocacy experts and conducted a systematic review of the literature from January 2002 to June 2015. Outcomes included overall survival, disease-free survival, progression-free survival, and adverse events...
