Flavobacterium columnare is one of the deadliest fish pathogens causing devastating mortality in various freshwater fish species globally. To gain an insight into bacterial genomic contents and structures, comparative genome analyses were performed using the reference and newly sequenced genomes of F. columnare including genomovar I, II and I/II strains isolated from Thailand, Europe and the USA. Bacterial genomes varied in size from 3.09 to 3.39Mb (2714 to 3101 CDSs). The pan-genome analysis revealed open pan-genome nature of F...

Toward development of a precision medicine framework for metastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), we established a multi-institutional clinical sequencing infrastructure to conduct prospective whole-exome and transcriptome sequencing of bone or soft tissue tumor biopsies from a cohort of 150 mCRPC affected individuals. Aberrations of AR, ETS genes, TP53, and PTEN were frequent (40%-60% of cases), with TP53 and AR alterations enriched in mCRPC compared to primary prostate cancer. We identified new genomic alterations in PIK3CA/B, R-spondin, BRAF/RAF1, APC, β-catenin, and ZBTB16/PLZF...

INTRODUCTION: Nigeria has one of the highest maternal mortality ratios in the world as well as high perinatal mortality. Unfortunately, the country does not have the resources to assess this critical indicator with the conventional health information system and measuring its progress toward the goal of ending preventable maternal deaths is almost impossible. Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) conducted a cross-sectional study to assess maternal and perinatal mortality in Makoko Riverine and Badia East, two of the most vulnerable slums of Lagos...

Tumor-derived extracellular vesicles (EVs) are emerging as an important mode of intercellular communication, capable of transferring biologically active molecules that facilitate the malignant growth and metastatic process. CD133 (Prominin-1), a stem cell marker implicated in tumor initiation, differentiation and resistance to anti-cancer therapy, is reportedly associated with EVs in various types of cancer. However, little is known about the factors that regulate the release of these CD133(+) EVs. Here, we report that the HDAC6 inhibitor tubacin promoted the extracellular release of CD133(+) EVs from human FEMX-I metastatic melanoma and Caco-2 colorectal carcinoma cells, with a concomitant downregulation of intracellular CD133...

BACKGROUND: Uterine fibroids are smooth muscle tumours arising from the uterus. These tumours, although benign, are commonly associated with abnormal uterine bleeding, bulk symptoms and reproductive dysfunction. The importance of progesterone in fibroid pathogenesis supports selective progesterone receptor modulators (SPRMs) as effective treatment. Both biochemical and clinical evidence suggests that SPRMs may reduce fibroid growth and ameliorate symptoms. SPRMs can cause unique histological changes to the endometrium that are not related to cancer, are not precancerous and have been found to be benign and reversible...

BACKGROUND: Surgical site infection (SSI) following spine surgery is a morbid and expensive complication. The use of intrawound vancomycin is emerging as a solution to reduce SSI. The development of vancomycin-resistant pathogens is an understandable concern. OBJECTIVE: To determine the occurrence of vancomycin-resistant SSI in patients with and without use of intrawound vancomycin. METHODS: Patients undergoing elective spine surgery were dichotomized based on whether intrawound vancomycin was applied...

We demonstrate an energy scalable approach to implement ultrafast fiber laser sources suitable for deep tissue multi-photon microscopy imaging. Enabled by fiber-optic nonlinearities (dominated by self-phase modulation), these unique ultrafast sources produce nearly transform-limited pulses of 50-90 fs in duration with the center wavelength tunable in the wavelength range of 1030-1215 nm. The resulting pulse energy can be scaled up to 20 nJ by optimizing fiber dispersion, shortening fiber length, and using large-mode-area fibers...

Cadmium is a transition metal that is classified as human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) with multiple target sites. Many studies using various model systems provide evidence of cadmium-induced malignancy formation in vivo or malignant cell transformation in vitro. Nonetheless, further studies are needed to completely understand the mechanisms of cadmium carcinogenicity. Our prior studies have utilized a rat liver epithelial cell line (TRL 1215) as a model for cadmium-induced malignant transformation...
