Suzanne McGettigan, Krista M Rubin
BACKGROUND: Programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) inhibitor therapies are now a standard treatment for advanced melanoma and other tumor types. The immune-related adverse events (irAEs) associated with PD-1 inhibitor therapy are drastically different from the AEs associated with chemotherapy. Because these irAEs reflect immune system activation rather than side effects of therapy, nurses should be cognizant of the range of organ systems potentially affected as well as likely clinical presentations...

#4
Kathleen M Madden, Brianna Hoffner
BACKGROUND: Ipilimumab (Yervoy®) therapy improves outcomes in patients with resected stage III melanoma, and ipilimumab alone or combined with nivolumab (Opdivo®) does so in those with unresectable or metastatic melanoma. These immunotherapies are associated with immune-related adverse events (irAEs). With prompt recognition and appropriate management, serious sequelae or unnecessary treatment discontinuation can be prevented.
. OBJECTIVES: This article presents consensus statements to guide oncology nurses in the recognition and management of irAEs associated with ipilimumab and nivolumab...

Maria Czupryn, Jennifer Cisneros
BACKGROUND: BRAF/MEK inhibitor therapy improves outcomes in BRAF V600E- and V600K-mutated unresectable or metastatic melanoma. However, these regimens are associated with adverse events (AEs) that may lead to unnecessary drug modifications and discontinuations or potentially serious sequelae. In addition, drug-drug interactions (DDIs) may result in AEs or altered therapeutic efficacy.
. OBJECTIVES: This article presents consensus statements to guide nurses in the prevention, recognition, and management of AEs and potential DDIs associated with BRAF/MEK inhibitor therapy...

The densities of enteroendocrine cells are abnormal in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS); however, they tend to change toward normal levels in stomach, ileum, and colon following dietary guidance. The aim was to identify the types of duodenal enteroendocrine cells affected after receiving dietary guidance in the same group of patients with IBS. Fourteen patients with IBS and 14 control subjects were included. The patients received three sessions of dietary guidance. Both groups underwent gastroscopies at baseline, and again for the patients after 3-9 months (median, four months) from receiving dietary guidance...

Jan Vijg, Xiao Dong, Lei Zhang
Postzygotic mutations in somatic cells lead to genome mosaicism and can be the cause of cancer, possibly other human diseases and aging. Somatic mutations are difficult to detect in bulk tissue samples. Here, we review the available assays for measuring somatic mutations, with a focus on recent single-cell, whole genome sequencing methods. Impact statement Somatic mutations cause cancer, possibly other diseases and aging. Yet, very little is known about the frequency of such mutations in vivo, their distribution across the genome, and their possible functional consequences other than cancer...

Although the definition of white-coat hypertension (WCH) in children and adolescents is clearly defined, little is known about how this condition is actually approached clinically. To better understand the contemporary approach to the diagnosis and management of WCH in pediatric patients, the authors surveyed the membership of the Midwest Pediatric Nephrology Consortium. Seventy-four faculty pediatric nephrologists responded to the survey. The survey results demonstrated uniformity in diagnosing WCH, including ambulatory blood pressure monitoring use in 93% of the respondents and a 75% adherence rate according to the 2014 American Heart Association scientific statement on pediatric ambulatory blood pressure monitoring...

REVIEW
(no author information available yet)
Greater numbers of children are on the move than ever before. In 2015, the number of forcibly displaced people across the globe reached 65.3 million. Of the more than 1 million migrants, asylum seekers, and refugees who arrived in Europe in 2015, nearly one third were children, and 90,000 of these children were unaccompanied. Child migrants are among the most vulnerable, even after arriving at their destination. The health of migrant children is related to their health status before their journey, the conditions during their journey and at their destination, and the physical and mental health of their caregivers...

Katerina Lin, Cynthia Tung
Introduction: The landscape of acupuncture regulation has greatly evolved since the National Institutes of Health Consensus Statement in 1997. In recent decades, acupuncture treatment has become increasingly integrated with conventional medical care. Healthcare practitioners often utilize acupuncture as an adjunctive therapy to help alleviate symptoms of many conditions, such as nausea and pain. The popularity of this complementary and alternative modality has elevated the importance and urgency for states to regulate its practice and safety...

The goal of this study is to improve the integration of implanted microdevices with tissue in the central nervous system (CNS). The long-term utility of neuroprosthetic devices implanted in the CNS is affected by the formation of a scar by resident glial cells (astrocytes and microglia), limiting the viability and functional stability of the devices. Reduction in the proliferation of glial cells is expected to enhance the biocompatibility of devices. We demonstrate the modification of polyimide-insulated microelectrodes with a bioactive peptide KHIFSDDSSE...

Degeneration of the intervertebral discs is a progressive cascade of cellular, compositional and structural changes that is frequently associated with low back pain. As the first signs of disc degeneration typically arise in the disc's central nucleus pulposus (NP), augmentation of the NP via hydrogel injection represents a promising strategy to treat early to mid-stage degeneration. The purpose of this study was to establish the translational feasibility of a triple interpenetrating network hydrogel composed of dextran, chitosan, and teleostean (DCT) for augmentation of the degenerative NP in a preclinical goat model...
