OBJECTIVE: Arachnoid cysts (ACs) are common findings in brain MRI. Our aim was to examine frequency and distribution of ACs in patients with focal epilepsy, compared to healthy control subjects, and to investigate the association of AC and electro-clinical features of focal epilepsy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective case-control study, using data from 180 patients that underwent video-EEG monitoring between 2009 and 2012, and of 114 healthy controlled subjects...

AIMS: Neonatal diabetes mellitus (NDM) is a rare disorder, and guidance is limited regarding its optimal management. We reviewed insulin usage in NDM, with a focus on continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII). METHODS: A PubMed search identified 40 reports of patients with NDM treated with insulin published between 1994 and 2016. RESULTS: Data concerning treatment of NDM are limited. CSII resolves some of the issues associated with insulin therapy in neonates...

This study investigates the predictive ability of automatic quantitative brain MRI descriptors for the identification of infants with low cognitive and/or motor outcome at 2-3 years chronological age. MR brain images of 173 patients were acquired at 30 weeks postmenstrual age (PMA) (n = 86) and 40 weeks PMA (n = 153) between 2008 and 2013. Eight tissue volumes and measures of cortical morphology were automatically computed. A support vector machine classifier was employed to identify infants who exhibit low cognitive and/or motor outcome (<85) at 2-3 years chronological age as assessed by the Bayley scales...

Despite an improving therapeutic landscape, significant challenges remain in treating the majority of advanced ovarian and renal cancer patients. We identified the cell-cell adhesion molecule cadherin-6 (CDH6) as a lineage gene having significant differential expression in ovarian and kidney cancer. HKT288 is an optimized CDH6-targeting DM4-based antibody drug conjugate (ADC) developed for the treatment of these diseases. Our study provides mechanistic evidence supporting the importance of linker choice for optimal anti-tumor activity and highlights CDH6 as a novel antigen for biotherapeutic development...

BACKGROUND: Rivaroxaban represents a selective direct inhibitor of activated coagulation factor X (FXa) having peroral bioavailability and prompt onset of action. OBJECTIVE: The absorbtion of rivaroxaban is quick, reaching maximum plasma concentration 2-4 hours following its administration. Peroral bioavailability is high (80-100 %) and pharmacokinetic variability is considered to be moderate (coefficient of variation 30-40 %). This review discusses the properties, drug interactions, pharmacokinetics and clinical indications of rivaroxaban...

Extracellular adenine nucleotides and nucleosides, such as ATP and adenosine, are among the most recently identified and least investigated diffusible signaling factors that contribute to the structural and functional remodeling of the brain, both during embryonic and postnatal development. Their levels in the extracellular milieu are tightly controlled by various ectonucleotidases: ectonucleotide pyrophosphatase/phosphodiesterases (E-NPP), alkaline phosphatases (AP), ectonucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolases (E-NTPDases) and ecto-5'-nucleotidase (eN)...

Microbiological investigation of unexplored ecosystems is crucial for discovering of antibiotic producing actinomycetes. The present study was conducted to determine antimicrobial activity and identify the most active strains. Actinomycetes were isolated using the spread plate technique following by serial dilution of samples on starch casein agar. The screening method consists of primary and secondary testing. The most active isolates were identified based on molecular and cultural methods. 42 out of 66 isolates displayed antimicrobial potential...

OBJECTIVE: Fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) can cause reactive histopathological changes, commonly including haemorrhage and granulation tissue. The literature describing vascular proliferation after FNAB is sparse. We aimed to describe neovascularisation in thyroid gland specimens as a consequence of FNAB. STUDY DESIGN: We analysed all thyroid histopathological specimens from the Fimlab Laboratories collected between 2010 and 2013 for neovascularisation and distortions in the accompanying tissue...

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) combines a photosensitiser, light and molecular oxygen to induce oxidative stress that can be used to kill pathogens, cancer cells and other highly proliferative cells. There is a growing number of clinically approved photosensitisers and applications of PDT, whose main advantages include the possibility of selective targeting, localised action and stimulation of the immune responses. Further improvements and broader use of PDT could be accomplished by designing new photosensitisers with increased selectivity and bioavailability...

INTRODUCTION: About one quarter of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infected persons in Serbia have also been found to be hepatitis C virus (HCV) co-infected. In the general population, HCV genotype 1 has been shown to be the most prevalent one. Here, we present the first study on the distribution of HCV genotypes among HIV/HCV co-infected patients in Serbia, in relation to epidemiological and clinical features. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study included HIV/HCV co-infected and a group of HCV mono-infected patients in the period 1998-2012, with collection of epidemiological, clinical, and behavioral data using a standardized questionnaire...

To date, there are multiple assays developed that detect and quantify antibodies in biofluids. Nevertheless, there is still a lack of simple approaches that specifically detect autoimmune antibodies to double-stranded DNA. Herein we investigate the potential of novel nucleic acid complexes as targets for these antibodies. This is done in a simple, rapid and specific immunofluorescence assay. Specifically, employing 3D nanostructures (DNA origami), we present a new approach in the detection and study of human antibodies to DNA...

The purpose of this study was to estimate the electrochemical behavior and biocompatibility of ultrafine-grained (UFG) commercially pure titanium (CPTi) and Ti-13Nb-13Zr (TNZ) alloy obtained by high-pressure torsion process. Electrochemical behavior of materials in artificial saliva at 37°C was evaluated by potentiodynamic polarization tests and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), and the obtained results indicated that UFG TNZ alloy showed corrosion current density (jcorr  = 53 ± 5 nA cm(-2) ) which was 2 times lower compared to coarse-grained (CG) TNZ alloy (jcorr  = 110 ± 12 nA cm(-2) ) and higher corrosion resistance, while UFG CPTi and CPTi showed approximately the same corrosion rate (mean jcorr ∼ 38-40 nA cm(-2) )...

In this study we have provided a detailed quantitative morphological analysis of medium spiny neurons (MSNs) in the mice dorsal striatum and determined the consistency of values among three groups of animals obtained in different set of experiments. Dendritic trees of 162 Golgi Cox (FD Rapid GolgiStain Kit) impregnated MSNs from 15 adult C57BL/6 mice were 3-dimensionally reconstructed using Neurolucida software, and parameters of dendritic morphology have been compared among experimental groups. The parameters of length and branching pattern did not show statistically significant difference and were highly consistent among groups...

BACKGROUND: The orally available BRAF kinase inhibitor vemurafenib is an effective and tolerable treatment option for patients with metastatic melanoma harbouring BRAF(V600) mutations. We assessed the safety of vemurafenib in a large population of patients with few alternative treatment options; we report updated 2-year safety. METHODS: This was an open-label, multicentre study of vemurafenib (960 mg bid) in patients with previously treated or untreated BRAF mutation-positive metastatic melanoma (cobas(®) 4800 BRAF V600 Mutation Test)...

Changes in immune and inflammatory responses may play a crucial role in the development and progression of atherosclerosis, as an autoimmune, chronic and progressive inflammatory disease. Immunological activity and vascular inflammation during atherosclerosis can be modulated by autoimmune responses against self-antigens, according to changeable risk factors (cholesterol, oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) in the vascular wall, fatty acids, etc.) and accompanied by accumulation of leucocytes and proinflammatory cytokines, which stimulate the transcription of matrix-metalloproteinases (MMPs), whose concentration are increased in foam cell rich regions...
