BACKGROUND: With most forms of dementia, the risk of road traffic accidents increases with disease progression. Addressing the issue of fitness to drive at an early stage can help to reduce driving-related risks and simultaneously preserve mobility. General practitioners (GPs) are central contact persons for dementia patients and their relatives in medical and psychosocial matters, and also play a key role in addressing the issue of driving safety. OBJECTIVE: Identification of relevant aspects of managing fitness to drive in dementia, as well as of support requirements for German general practice...

Pediatric renal tumors (PRT) with small round blue or spindle cell morphology can be diagnostically challenging and only a limited number of immunohistochemical markers have been documented to help in the diagnosis: paired box (Pax) 2 and nerve growth factor receptor (NGFR) positivity have been demonstrated in Wilms tumor (WT) and clear cell sarcoma of the kidney (CCSK), respectively. However, the immunohistochemical expression of these markers in other PRT remains unknown. This study investigated Pax8, Pax2, and NGFR immunophenotype in a large series of PRT...

Background: Female survivors of childhood cancer treated with abdominal radiotherapy who manage to conceive are at risk of delivering premature and low-birthweight offspring, but little is known about whether abdominal radiotherapy may also be associated with additional complications during pregnancy and labor. We investigated the risk of developing pregnancy and labor complications among female survivors of childhood cancer in the British Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (BCCSS). Methods: Pregnancy and labor complications were identified by linking the BCCSS cohort (n = 17 980) to the Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) for England...

Background.: Podocyte depletion causes glomerulosclerosis, with persistent podocyte loss being a major factor driving disease progression. Urinary podocyte mRNA is potentially useful for monitoring disease progression in both animal models and in humans. To determine whether the same principles apply to crescentic glomerular injury, a rat model of anti-glomerular basement membrane (anti-GBM) nephritis was studied in parallel with a patient with anti-GBM nephritis. Methods...

Dipeptidase 1 (DPEP1) is a zinc-dependent metalloproteinase that is fundamental in glutathione and leukotriene metabolism. DPEP1 was initially considered as a tumor suppressor gene in Wilms' tumor and breast cancer. However, it has been reported that DPEP1 is upregulated in colorectal cancers (CRCs) and high DPEP1 expression levels are associated with poorer patient survival. The role of DPEP1 genes in CRC, as well as their expression, requires investigation. Therefore, the present study investigated DPEP1 expression using reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction or immunohistochemistry on surgically resected samples from CRC cases, and further examined the biological significance of DPEP1 by comparing the expression of the epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) markers, including epithelial cadherin and Vimentin to clarify the function of DPEP1 in CRC, particularly in metastasis...

Both severe obesity and type 2 diabetes (T2DM) are associated with reduced pulmonary function and reduced cardiorespiratory fitness. We investigated whether T2DM further aggravates the impaired pulmonary function and cardiorespiratory fitness in subjects with severe obesity. In this cross-sectional study pulmonary function (forced expiratory volume within 1 s, FEV1; vital capacity, VC) was assessed in 65 severely obese subjects with T2DM (T2DM group) and 65 severely obese subjects without T2DM (non-T2DM group), pairwise matched for sex, age, weight, and height...

BACKGROUND: The primary therapeutic goals in the treatment of liver injury are to support liver regeneration or bridge the gap to liver transplantation (LT). Molecular adsorbent recirculating system (MARS) therapy has shown beneficial effects for specific symptoms of liver failure; however, general survival advantages have not yet been demonstrated. AIM: We studied the effects of MARS therapy compared to standard medical treatment (SMT) in two patient cohorts: in patients with an acute liver injury and in those with graft dysfunction (GD)...

Despite dedicated research has been carried out to adequately map the distribution of the sperm whale in the Mediterranean Sea, unlike other regions of the world, the species population status is still presently uncertain. The analysis of two years of continuous acoustic data provided by the ANTARES neutrino telescope revealed the year-round presence of sperm whales in the Ligurian Sea, probably associated with the availability of cephalopods in the region. The presence of the Ligurian Sea sperm whales was demonstrated through the real-time analysis of audio data streamed from a cabled-to-shore deep-sea observatory that allowed the hourly tracking of their long-range echolocation behaviour on the Internet...

Wilm's tumor, aniridia, genitourinary anomalies, and mental retardation (WAGR) syndrome, a rare genetic disorder, is caused by the loss of 11p13 region including PAX6 and WT1. We report novel findings in a 28-month-old boy with aniridia, Wilm's tumor, congenital hypothyroidism, and sublingual thyroid ectopia. He was found to have a mosaic 5.28 Mb interstitial deletion of chromosome 11p13 deleting PAX6 and WT1. In order to clarify the mechanism underlying his thyroid dysgenesis, sequence analysis of candidate thyroid developmental genes was performed...

The aberrant overexpression of Wilms' tumor-1 gene (WT1) plays an important role in blast cell survival and resistance to chemotherapy in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Here, we found in chemotherapeutic drug etoposide-induced apoptosis, WT1 protein was cleaved into smaller fragment by caspase-3 in leukemic cells. The cleavage was blocked by pan-caspase inhibitor and special caspase-3 inhibitor, suggesting that caspase-3 might cleave WT1 protein. Furthermore, recombinant active caspase-3 cleaved the Flag-WT1 and GST-WT1 proteins in vitro...

Wilms tumor is a pediatric kidney cancer associated with inactivation of the WT1 tumor-suppressor gene in 5-10% of cases. There is an urgent need to illustrate risk factors which can trigger the motility of Wilms tumor cells. Our present study revealed that mono-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (MEHP) exposure can significantly increase the in vitro migration and invasion of G401 and WiT49 cells. Real time PCR and western blot analysis revealed that MEHP treatment can increase the expression of metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) and MMP-9, while had no effect on the expression of MMP-1, MMP-3, or MMP-12...

BACKGROUND: Nephrogenic rests (NRs) are abnormally persistent foci of embryonal cells, thought to be the precursor lesion of Wilms tumors (WTs). To date, their presence has not been systematically examined in WTs treated with preoperative chemotherapy. METHODS: A systematic analysis of the data on NRs in WTs treated with preoperative chemotherapy obtained from the UK cohort of the International Society of Pediatric Oncology (SIOP) WT 2001 Trial. The study was based on central pathology review of full sets of slides from pathological specimens, with a median of 28 slides reviewed per case...

Imatinib trough levels have been associated with its clinical effects. During chronic use of imatinib, CYP2C8 becomes an important metabolizing enzyme because of cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) autoinhibition. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in CYP2C8 may affect imatinib trough levels. This study investigates the effect of common CYP2C8 polymorphisms [*1B (rs7909236), *1C (rs17110453), *3 (rs11572080 and rs10509681), and *4 (rs1058930)] on steady-state trough levels imatinib during chronic imatinib use in 43 patients with chronic myeloid leukemia or gastrointestinal stromal tumors...

Previous studies have suggested that CD133(+) cells isolated from human kidney biopsies have the potential to ameliorate injury following intravenous (IV) administration in rodent models of kidney disease by integrating into damaged renal tissue and generating specialized renal cells. However, whether renal engraftment of CD133(+) cells is a prerequisite for ameliorating injury has not yet been unequivocally resolved. Here, we have established a cisplatin-induced nephropathy model in immunodeficient rats to assess the efficacy of CD133(+) human kidney cells in restoring renal health, and to determine the fate of these cells after systemic administration...

ACTA2 expression identifies pulmonary airway and vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) as well as alveolar myofibroblasts (MYF). Mesenchymal progenitors expressing fibroblast growth factor 10 (Fgf10), Wilms tumor 1 (Wt1), or glioma-associated oncogene 1 (Gli1) contribute to SMC formation from early stages of lung development. However, their respective contribution and specificity to the SMC and/or alveolar MYF lineages remain controversial. In addition, the contribution of mesenchymal cells undergoing active WNT signaling remains unknown...

Wilms tumor (WT) is the most common renal tumor of childhood. Although multidisciplinary care including surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy have greatly improved the survival rates in WT, there is a scope for further improvement in India and other resource-poor settings. In resource-limited settings, the majority of patients present with large tumors, which may either be unresectable or risky to resect; making preoperative chemotherapy followed by delayed surgery the preferred approach. Histology and staging are used for risk stratification...

Insulin-like growth factor (IGF) binding proteins (IGFBPs) constitute a family of six secreted proteins that regulate the signaling of insulin-like growth factors (IGFs). IGFBP5 is the most conserved family member in vertebrates and the major IGF binding protein in bone. IGFBP5 is required for normal development of the musculoskeletal system, and various types of cancer frequently express high levels of IGFP5. Here we identify the gene encoding IGFBP5 as a novel downstream target of the Wilms tumor protein WT1...
