BACKGROUND: The objective of the study is to determine the correlations among the variables of dose and the sphincter function (SF) in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer treated with preoperative capecitabine/radiotherapy followed by low anterior resection (LAR) + TME. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 92 consecutive patients with LARC treated at our center with LAR from 2006 and more than 2 years free from disease. We re-contoured the anal sphincters (AS) of patients with the help of the radiologist...

The human precorneal tear film (PCTF) is a special body fluid, since it is a complex mixture of proteins, lipids small bioactive molecules and their concentrations and relative distribution represent not only the metabolic state of the ocular surface but also the systemic and local homeostasis of the outer eye and the human body. This suggests that biochemical analysis of the PCTF composition may provide a non-invasive tool for diagnosis and monitoring of disease progression or treatment efficacy in human medicine...

BACKGROUND: Plasma proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) has been reported to be related to several risk factors and diseases such as inflammatory markers and coronary artery disease (CAD). The aim of present study was to investigate whether plasma PCSK9 level was associated with coronary artery calcification (CAC). METHODS: A total of 403 consecutive untreated patients with angina-like chest pain who received electron beam computed tomography (EBCT) were enrolled and a CAC score (CACS) was also measured...

: Background The enzymatic method of caeruloplasmin measurement is based on copper-dependent oxidase activity. The advantage of the oxidase determination is that it has a much lower detection limit compared to immunoassay-based methods. It has found its application in both the diagnosis of Wilson's disease and also in the monitoring of patients' response to treatment. METHODS: The method previously described by Schosinsky(1)(2) was adapted for use on a 96-well plate...

BACKGROUND: Measurement of estradiol is an integral component for management of ovarian stimulation for in vitro fertilization (IVF). Automated immunoassays offer fast assay times and high throughput, with less sensitivity and specificity. The aim of this study is to optimize the estradiol assay in patients undergoing ovarian stimulation for IVF via comparison of estradiol values obtained using two immunoassays compared to mass spectrometry. METHODS: Patients undergoing ovarian stimulation were prospectively recruited...

EDITORIAL
Tom Jefferson, Luca De Fiore
An old Italian proverb states that lies have short legs. In other words, in the end you get found out. This is exactly what happened to an Italian researcher who acted as a referee for a manuscript submitted in 2015 to Annals of Internal Medicine. After a negative report (which presumably led to the rejection of the submission) he submitted a manuscript which was essentially the same. But he and his accomplices got found out and paraded in front of the world in an earth-shatteringly polite "Dear Plagiarist" letter by the first robbed author: Dr Michael Dansinger...
