The emergence of oligoclonal bands (OB) in patients with multiple myeloma achieving a complete remission (CR) after autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) and the use of novel agents is a well-recognized event. The presence of OB is associated with favorable outcome. However, the emergence of OB in light-chain (AL) amyloidosis has never been investigated. The aim of the study was to determine the incidence, natural history and prognostic impact of OB in 50 patients with AL amyloidosis who achieved at least a partial response (PR) either after up-front ASCT (20 patients [40%]) or after conventional treatment in patients ineligible for transplant (30 patients [60%])...

PAM50/Prosigna gene expression-based assay identifies three categorical risk of relapse groups (ROR-low, ROR-intermediate and ROR-high) in post-menopausal patients with estrogen receptor estrogen receptor-positive (ER+)/ HER2-negative (HER2-) early breast cancer. Low risk patients might not need adjuvant chemotherapy since their risk of distant relapse at 10-years is below 10% with endocrine therapy only. In this study, 517 consecutive patients with ER+/HER2- and node-negative disease were evaluated for Ki67 and Prosigna...

The interactions between salivary proteins and wine flavanols (catechin, epicatechin and mixtures catechin+epicatechin) have been studied by HPLC-DAD, Isothermal Titration Microcalorimetry and Molecular Dynamics simulations. Chromatographic results suggest that the presence of these flavanol mixtures could facilitate the formation of precipitates to the detriment of soluble aggregates. The comparison between the thermodynamic parameters obtained showed remarkable higher negative values of ΔG in the system containing the mixture of both flavanols in comparison to the systems containing individual flavanols, indicating a more favourable scenario in the mixing system...

Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) is the most commonly used serum marker for prostate cancer (PCa), although it is not specific and sensitive enough to allow the differential diagnosis of the more aggressive tumors. For that, new diagnostic methods are being developed, such as PCA-3, PSA isoforms that have resulted in the 4K score or the Prostate Health Index (PHI), and PSA glycoforms. In the present study, we have compared the PHI with our recently developed PSA glycoform assay, based on the determination of the α2,3-sialic acid percentage of serum PSA (% α2,3-SA), in a cohort of 79 patients, which include 50 PCa of different grades and 29 benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) patients...

Mari Cruz Rodríguez Jareño, Jaume De Montserrat I Nonó
OBJECTIVE: In Spain, the limited preventive usefulness of health surveillance is determined by the indiscriminate use of nonspecific "generic" health examinations aimed at producing a "fitness for work list", presumably allowing companies to comply with health and safety regulations. This study aimed to produce a technical interpretation of the Spanish Prevention of Risks at Work Act and propose a new conceptual framework to favour greater preventive usefulness of health surveillance within the current regulatory framework...

This study evaluated the effect of pH on the activity of antioxidant and immune enzymes in the sea cucumber Isostichopus badionotus exposed to different temperatures. The organisms (530 ±110 g) were exposed to 16, 20, 24, 28, 30, 34 and 36°C for 6 h to evaluate thermal limits at two water pH values (treatment = 7.70; control = 8.17). For the thermal tolerance experiment, the organisms were exposed to sublethal temperature of 34°C for 3, 6, 12, 24, and 48 h. I. badionotus showed signs of thermal stress by synthesizing heat shock protein 70 (hsp70) at the cold (16°C) and warm thermal limits (34°C)...

The cognition of green jays (Cyanocorax yncas), a non Corvus corvid species, was investigated by using the string-pulling paradigm. Five adult green jays performed a vertical string-pulling task in which they had to retrieve a worm attached to the end of a vertical hanging string while sitting on their perch. In the first experiment, three of the subjects managed to retrieve the worm by pulling on the string with their beaks and stepping on the resulting loop, and thereafter repeating this sequence until the worm was accessible...

BACKGROUND: / Aims: Although hepatitis E constitutes a substantial disease burden worldwide, surprisingly little is known about the localization of hepatitis E virus (HEV) in the human liver. We therefore aimed to visualize HEV RNA and proteins in situ. METHODS: A panel of 12 different antibodies against HEV open reading frame (ORF) 1-3 proteins was evaluated for immunohistochemistry (IHC) and two probes for in situ hybridization (ISH) in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) Huh-7 cells transfected with HEV ORF1-3 expression vectors...

BACKGROUND: The efficacy of starting enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) in adults with Muchopolysaccharidosis Type I (MPS-I) is controversial. Evaluating the benefits reported by patients initiating ERT with laronidase at adult age might help physicians decide whether the use of ERT in these patients is worthwhile from a clinical point of view. OBJECTIVE: To assess every effectiveness variable modified in MPS-I patients who initiated laronidase at adult age. METHODS: A systematic search of the literature, from inception to July 2016, was conducted using MEDLINE, EMBASE, CENTRAL and LILACS to identify randomized trials or observational studies including ≥1 MPS-I patients with ERT initiated in adult age (≥18years) and evaluating ERT efficacy...

Studies about affect changes during the menstrual cycle and the role of hormones in these changes have yielded contradictory results. Often research has focused on the pre-menstrual phase, with few studies paying specific attention to the affect changes around ovulation. In this research thirty women completed a daily questionnaire measuring the positive and negative affect during their menstrual cycle. These women were divided in two groups: hormonally-contracepting and naturally-cycling. The Positive and Negative Affect Schedule was used to measure the affect...

OBJECTIVE: Extracellular nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (eNAMPT) mediates inflammatory and potentially proatherogenic effects, whereas the role of intracellular NAMPT (iNAMPT), the rate limiting enzyme in the salvage pathway of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD)(+) generation, in atherogenesis is largely unknown. Here we investigated the effects of iNAMPT overexpression in leukocytes on inflammation and atherosclerosis. APPROACH AND RESULTS: Low-density lipoprotein receptor-deficient mice with hematopoietic overexpression of human iNAMPT (iNAMPT(hi)), on a western type diet, showed attenuated plaque burden with features of lesion stabilization...

G-quadruplex and i-motif are tetraplex structures present in telomeres and promoter regions of oncogenes. The possibility of producing nanodevices with pH-sensitive functions has triggered the interest for modified oligonucleotides with improved structural properties. We synthesized C-rich oligonucleotides carrying conformationally restricted (2'S)-2'-deoxy-2'-C-methyl-cytidine units. The effect of this modified nucleoside on the stability of intramolecular i-motifs related to vertebrate telomere was investigated by means of spectroscopic methods (UV, CD and NMR)...
