In this paper, for the first time, faujasite Y zeolite impregnated with iron (III) was employed as a catalyst to remove a real cocktail of micropollutants inside real water samples from the Meurthe river by the means of the heterogeneous photo-Fenton process. The catalyst was prepared by the wet impregnation method using iron (III) nitrate nonahydrate as iron precursor. First, an optimization of the process parameters was conducted using phenol as model macro-pollutant. The hydrogen peroxide concentration, the light wavelength (UV and visible) and intensity, the iron loading immobilized, as well as the pH of the solution were investigated...

The establishment of safe approaches to attain durable donor-type chimerism and immune tolerance toward donor antigens represents a major challenge in transplantation biology. Haploidentical hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is currently used for cancer therapy either as a T-cell-depleted megadose HSCT following myeloablative conditioning or with T-cell-replete HSCT following nonmyeloablative conditioning (NMAC) and high-dose posttransplant cyclophosphamide (PTCY). The latter approach suffers from a significant rate of chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), despite prolonged immunosuppression...

Everolimus is an inhibitor of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) that has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of subependymal giant cell astrocytoma (SEGA) in patients with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). Retinal hamartomas, which are one of the major diagnostic features of TSC, tend to remain stable or gradually progress in the natural history of the disease. We report 2 patients with TSC treated with everolimus for SEGA in whom fundus photographs and spectral domain optical coherence tomography demonstrated regression of previously documented multiple retinal hamartomas in all 4 eyes...

Iron overload (IOL) due to increased intestinal iron absorption constitutes a major clinical problem in patients with non-transfusion-dependent thalassemia (NTDT), which is a cumulative process with advancing age. Current models for iron metabolism in patients with NTDT suggest that suppression of serum hepcidin leads to an increase in iron absorption and subsequent release of iron from the reticuloendothelial system, leading to depletion of macrophage iron, relatively low levels of serum ferritin, and liver iron loading...

OBJECTIVE: Salivary gland neoplasms are rare tumors, with most arising in the parotid gland. Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is a common method for pre-operative evaluation of parotid masses, although its usefulness is controversial. This study was designed to evaluate the accuracy of FNAC in a large cohort of patients, with emphasis on diagnosis of benign tumors and especially Warthin tumor which can be managed conservatively. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case series with chart review...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of obesity is as high as one-third of the adult population in the ultrasound. Obese patients operated for rectal cancer are less likely to undergo sphincter-preserving surgery, and have an increased morbidity and mortality. We aim to report the outcomes of transanal-endoscopic-microsurgery (TEM) in obese patients with benign and malignant neoplasms. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An analysis was carried out of all patients undergoing TEM at a single institution between 2004 and 2015...
