Ethylene glycol is a toxic alcohol that is mainly introduced into an organism through the digestive pathway. Its priority toxic metabolites are glycolic acid and oxalic acid. We present the case of a young person, of the male persuasion, without any personal pathological history, found unconscious and presenting signs of violence. The patient is emergency hospitalized presenting coma, convulsive syndrome, severe metabolic acidosis and a positive result for alcoholism. Anamnestic data is extremely poor. The results of the clinical and paraclinical examinations suggest a possible poisoning with toxic alcohols...

Grass carp is an important fish species in Chinese aquaculture, and can be afflicted by a hemorrhagic disease caused by the grass carp reovirus (GCRV). Interestingly, the affects of GCRV infection of grass carp are age-restricted, meaning that one-year-old grass carp can be infected and can suffer hemorrhagic disease, but three-year-old carp are not so afflicted. In this study, we investigated the mechanism responsible for this age-restricted pathology. We evaluated the relative copy number of GCRV RNA, the expression levels of proteins in blood, and changes in DNA methylation in carp from the two age groups after infection with GCRV...

Hematological patients who accept chemotherapy always develop secondary tumor or even die of severe infections. As an important central lymphoid organ, the thymus is frequently damaged during chemotherapy. Previous studies showed that the mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can promote the proliferation and repair of epithelial cells in thymus. The purpose of our study is to investigate the reparative effects of human adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hADMSCs) for chemotherapy treated damaged thymus. 80 mice were randomly divided into four groups: normal group, model control group, hADMSCs untreated group and hADMSCs treated group...

Intra-abdominal aggressive fibromatosis is a locally aggressive tumor mostly originating from the mesentery or retroperitoneal space, infiltrating adjacent tissues, and very rarely metastasizing to distant organs. There are only two case reports in the English language literature where intra-abdominal aggressive fibromatosis originated from the intestinal wall. In this study, we aimed to report a case of aggressive fibromatosis originating from the muscularis propria layer of the duodenum and invading pancreas...

Uveitis is a serious eye disease that usually damages young adult's health. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small noncoding RNAs which regulate messenger RNA (mRNA) expression. It is predicted that rno-miR-30b-5p can regulate the expressions of interleukin-10 (IL-10) and Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4). In this study, the regulatory role of rno-miR-30b-5p in IL-10 and TLR4 gene expressions was validated using luciferase activity assay. Further, the inflammatory manifestation of the anterior segment and pathological examination of the eye were explored in experimental autoimmune uveitis (EAU) rats...

Ceria nanoparticles (nanoceria) have been used as a fuel-borne catalyst, and are emitted in the particulate phase in the diesel exhaust. To evaluate the potential health risks of airborne nanoceria, the pulmonary and systemic consequences of nanoceria to ICR mice were studied under repeated transnasal instillation. Two different size nanoceria (7-nm and 25-nm) were chose, representing the nanoceria mostly used as fuel additives and the combustion products of the very nanoceria, respectively. As the first target organ of nanoceria, the lungs suffered serious damages manifested in the results of their biochemical and pathological examinations...

The guinea pig has proven to be a reliable model for testing of vaccine candidates against tuberculosis (TB) because of its capacity to produce human-like disease associated to primary TB, thus providing a more stringent test of the ability of a vaccine to prevent disease and deaths. Here, the BCGΔBCG1419c vaccine candidate, which previously has been shown to provide protection in mice, was tested in a guinea pig model. We found that this vaccine candidate was as effective as parental BCG in reducing M. tuberculosis H37Rv replication in lungs, and significantly reducing hematogenous spread to spleen at 60 days post-infection in comparison to BCG...

BACKGROUND: Docetaxel is a notably efficient anticancer drug administered for several types of malignancies including ovarian cancer. However, various side effects caused either by nonspecific distribution of the active ingredient or by high contents of Tween 80 and ethanol in the currently marketed formulations, could even deprive the patients of the treatment. OBJECTIVES: In the current study, a novel targeted delivery system composed of Ecoflex® polymeric nanoparticles loaded with docetaxel and equipped with HER-2 specific aptemer molecules were evaluated regarding blood and tissue toxicity, and biodistribution...

Resolution of leishmanial infection is dependent on the coordinated interactions between components of cell mediated immune response, central to which is the activation of targeted T-cell populations for appropriate cytokine production and activation of infected cells. There is a correlation between the clinical outcome of Leishmania infection and the cytokine response profile. While a protective immune response against Leishmania has been clearly identified to be related to the influence of a type-l response and IFN-γ production, the precise role of T helper (TH) 2 cytokines in non-healing infections requires further exploration...

Porcine circovirus type 3 (PCV3) is an emerging porcine circovirus that has been associated with porcine dermatitis and nephropathy syndrome (PDNS)-like clinical signs, reproductive failure, cardiac pathologies and multisystemic inflammation in piglets and sows. Many aspects of PCV3 infection biology and pathogenesis, however, remain unknown. Here, we used a PCV3 virus stock from rescue of an infectious PCV3 DNA clone to intranasally inoculate 4- and 8-week-old specific-pathogen-free piglets for evaluation of PCV3 pathogenesis...

Splenic cysts are a rare pathology, which can be classified as true (25%) or pseudocysts (75%). Total splenectomy has been the treatment of choice, particularly in recent times with the advent of the laparoscopic approach. However, as the spleen is an organ with multiple immunological functions, the laparoscopic partial splenectomy is an alternative, which is technically difficult but effective. We present a case of a 26-year-old woman with incidental evidence of a splenic cyst in an abdominal ultrasound scan...
