INTRODUCTION: High-dose chemotherapy with autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (auto-HSCT) improves the outcome of patients with multiple myeloma (MM). It seems that auto-HSCT is also a feasible therapeutic option in MM dialysis-dependent (MMDD) patients. However, to perform transplantation, a sufficient number of stem cells must be collected. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Given that data on mobilization of auto-HSC efficacy and safety in dialysis-dependent patients are limited, we report data from all Polish Centers belonging to the Polish Multiple Myeloma Group...

Flame retardant functionality was imparted in sisal (leaf fibre) yarn whereas a strong scientific finding has been established between fire retardant efficacy of bulk and nano zinc oxide based formulations. Bulk and nano ZnO treated sisal yarns have been compared on the basis of their flame retardant efficacy, weight add-on% and tensile strength. Limiting oxygen index and char length of the 12% ZnO treated sisal was found to be well comparable with the 1% nano ZnO treated yarn. Further, add-on% and the tensile strength of the nano ZnO treated sample is 70-80% lower and 20% more, respectively, compared to the 12% bulk ZnO treated sisal yarn...

Lysyl oxidase like 2 (LOXL2) is an enzyme secreted into the extracellular matrix that crosslinks collagens by mediating oxidative deamination of lysine residues. Our previous work demonstrated that this enzyme crosslinks the 7S domain, a structural domain that stabilizes collagen IV scaffolds in the basement membrane. In spite of its relevant role in extracellular matrix biosynthesis, little is known about the structural requirements of LOXL2 that enable collagen IV crosslinking. In this study, we demonstrate that LOXL2 is processed extracellularly by serine proteases, generating a 65 kDa form lacking the first two Scavenger Receptors Cysteine Rich domains...

Homochirality in peptides is crucial in sustaining "like-like" intermolecular interactions that allow formation of assemblies and aggregates, and ultimately is responsible for the resulting material properties. With the help of a series of stereoisomers of the tripeptide F-F-L, we can demonstrate the critical role that peptide stereochemistry plays in the self-assembly of peptides, guided by molecular recognition and for self-sorting. Homochiral self-assemblies are stronger and more robust thermally and mechanically compared to heterochiral self-assemblies...

Ocular toxicity induced by anticancer chemotherapy is not uncommon, but underestimated and under-reported. Visual changes have been attributed to a number of chemotherapeutic agents in humans. Cisplatin (CP), a heavy metal compound, is used in the treatment of many types of tumors. CP is known to produce non-specific blurred vision, papilledema and optic neuritis for high doses as well as cumulative dose regimens. The aim of this study was to investigate the possible beneficial effects of fish oil (FO) on eye tissue oxidative status and histological alterations against CP-induced in the rats...
