Kazuko Tajiri, Kazutaka Aonuma, Ikuo Sekine
Immune checkpoint inhibitors have demonstrated significant clinical benefit in many cancers. The clinical benefit afforded by these treatments can be accompanied by a unique and distinct spectrum of adverse events. Recently, several fatal cases of immune checkpoint inhibitor-related myocarditis were reported. Although its frequency is comparatively lower than that of other immune-related adverse events, myocarditis can lead to circulatory collapse and lethal ventricular arrhythmia. Immune checkpoints, cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen 4 (CTLA-4) and programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1), play important roles in establishing peripheral tolerance to the heart...

Alteration in the process of bone remodelling is associated with falls and fractures due to increased bone fragility and altered calcium functioning. The auditory system consists of skeletal structures and is, therefore, prone to getting affected by altered bone remodelling. In addition, the vestibule consists of huge volumes of calcium (CaCO3) in the form of otoconia crystals and alteration in functioning calcium levels could, therefore, result in vestibular symptoms. Thus, the present study aimed at compiling information from various studies on assessment of auditory or vestibular systems in individuals with reduced bone mineral density (BMD)...

Surgery still remains the main stream in the multimodality treatment for locally advanced lung cancer. On the other hand, more than 50% of non-small cell lung cancer are excluded for surgical indications, especially T4 category of lung cancer. In this study, we showed 5 year overall survival rate of both 50 clinical T4 cases and 30 pathological T4 cases are 35.6% and 41.9% respectively. Those could be compared with the non-surgical treatment results in the literature. Through this study and analysis of other reports, we might consider surgical indications for T4 category lung cancer are as follows;invasion to mediastinum, spine, trachea, carina and additional nodules in ipsilateral different lobes with N0-1 status(esophagus is not included in this study)...

Female genital mutilation (FGM) is an established cultural practice in over 30 countries. It has no health benefits, carries a high risk of physical and psychological harm, and is illegal in many countries including the UK. A sensitive approach is required, both in the management of complications and prevention of this practice. This article discusses the prevalence and classification of FGM, and offers practical advice to nurses and midwives involved in general and obstetric care. Legal aspects, including safeguarding responsibilities and the mandatory duty to report FGM in England and Wales, are outlined...

A 72-year-old woman with a history of malignant lymphoma was referred to our hospital for the treatment of a bronchial artery aneurysm. Computed tomography (CT) scan showed a round, 30 mm-diameter fusiform aneurysm with two tortuous inflow arteries. We deployed thoracic stent grafting to cover the orifice of the two inflow arteries without transcatheter bronchial arterial embolization. Postoperative CT scan revealed complete thrombosis of the aneurysm. Although further follow-up is mandatory, this may be considered a viable treatment option in cases wherein the bronchial artery aneurysm is anatomically difficult to treat...

Microsphere and particle technology represent the next-generation agents that have formed the basis of interventional oncology, an evolving subspecialty of interventional radiology. One of these platforms, yttrium-90 microspheres, is increasingly being used as a treatment modality for primary and secondary liver tumors. Due to the widespread use of radioembolization, a comprehensive review of the methodologic and technical considerations seems to be mandatory. This article summarizes the expert discussion and report from Mediterranean Interventional Oncology Live Congress (MIOLive 2017) that was held in Rome, Italy, integrating evidence-reported literature and experience-based perceptions, to assist not only residents and fellows who are training in interventional radiologists but also practicing colleagues who are approaching to this intra-arterial treatment...

Tumor cell proliferation rate determined by either Ki-67 index or mitotic count (MC) has shown to be a prognostic factor for gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors in general, and after its incorporation in the 2010 World Health Organization tumor grading system, it has become essentially mandatory in pathology reports for all gastrointestinal neuroendocrine tumors, regardless of tumor location. Nevertheless, clinical significance for the Ki-67 index or MC has not been well demonstrated in small intestinal neuroendocrine tumor (SINET), especially those without distant metastasis, the majority of which have very low proliferation rates...

According to World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) technical document for erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESA) analysis (TD2014EPO), double- blotting of serum/plasma samples is mandatory for all analysis by isoelectric focusing (IEF) and for the confirmation procedures (CP) performed by SDS-PAGE or SAR-PAGE. The goal is to prevent potential cross-reactions of the secondary antibody with remaining proteins in the purified samples. To this end, we have developed an immunopurification method of ESA in serum/plasma samples using a combination of streptavidin-coated immunomagnetic beads and biotinylated anti-EPO polyclonal antibodies...
