This study evaluates the effects of dietary phosphorus on the growth, immune function and structural integrity (head kidney, spleen and skin) of young grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella) that were fed graded levels of available phosphorus (0.95-8.75 g/kg diet). Results indicated that phosphorus deficiency decreased the growth performance of young grass carp. In addition, the results first demonstrated that compared with the optimal phosphorus level, phosphorus deficiency depressed the lysozyme (LZ) and acid phosphatase (ACP) activities and the complement 3 (C3), C4 and immunoglobulin M (IgM) contents, and down-regulated the mRNA levels of antimicrobial peptides, anti-inflammatory cytokines, inhibitor of κBα (IκBα) and target of rapamycin (TOR), whereas it up-regulated pro-inflammatory cytokines, nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) p65 and NF-κB p52 mRNA levels to decrease fish head kidney and spleen immune functions...

BACKGROUND: The most common type of ocular lymphoma is non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), categorized into two groups: indolent (slow growing) and aggressive (rapid growing). Differentiating benign reactive lymphoid hyperplasia (RLH) from malignant ocular adnexal lymphoma (OAL) is challenging. Histopathology, immunohistochemistry (IHC) and ow cytometry have been used as diagnostic tools in such cases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective case series, from 2002 to 2013 at Farabi Eye Center, 110 patients with ocular lymphoproliferative disease were enrolled...

In this multicenter, single-arm, phase II study, the efficacy and safety of ibrutinib were examined in Japanese patients with relapsed or refractory mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). Patients (age ≥20 years) with relapsed or refractory MCL who had progressed after receiving at least one prior treatment regimen, were enrolled. Patients were treated with oral ibrutinib (560 mg once daily; 28-day cycle) until disease progression (or relapse), unacceptable toxicity, or study end. The primary end-point was overall response rate...

BACKGROUND: There is an on-going discussion whether to operatively treat combined grade II and III lesions of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the acute phase rather than conservative treatment of the MCL lesion with a delayed unitary ACL replacement. Another issue is the question how to technically address these MCL lesions. The aim of this study was, therefore, to analyze the results of simultaneous ACL replacement (hamstrings) in a single-bundle technique with a simultaneous MCL ligament bracing procedure...

For elderly patients with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), there is no defined standard therapy. In this multicenter open-label phase I/II trial we evaluated the addition of lenalidomide (LEN) to rituximab-bendamustine (R-B) as first-line treatment to elderly MCL patients. Patients >65 years with untreated MCL, stage II-IV were eligible for inclusion. Primary endpoints were maximally tolerable dose (MTD) of LEN, and progression-free survival (PFS). Patients received six cycles q4w of L-B-R (L D1-14, B 90 mg/m(2) iv D1-2 and R 375 mg/m(2) iv D1) followed by single LEN (D1-21, q4w, cycles 7-13)...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the clinical efficacy between deep medial collateral ligament (dMCL) repair and conservative treatment for complete MCL rupture. METHODS: Between August 2009 and December 2013, 36 patients with grade 3 MCL rupture underwent superior MCL (sMCL) reconstruction with tibial Inlay technique. Of 36 cases, 19 received dMCL repair (repair group), and 17 received conservative treatment (conservation group) after sMCL reconstruction. There was no significant difference in gender, age, knee sides, type of injury, disease duration and preoperative medial joint opening, knee Lysholm scores, and International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC) score between 2 groups (P > 0...

Cancer cells display a variety of global metabolic changes, which aside from the glycolytic pathway largely involve amino acid metabolism. To ensure aggressive growth, tumor cells highly depend on amino acids, most notably due to their pivotal need of protein synthesis. In this study, we assessed the overall hypothesis that depletion of asparagine by E. coli-derived L-asparaginase might be a novel means for the therapy of one of the most recalcitrant neoplasms and for which no efficient treatment currently exists - glioblastoma (WHO grade IV)...

BACKGROUND: Recent studies show that the risk of VTE in NHL pts is similar to that observed in high risk solid tumors (i.e. pancreatic, ovarian cancer). VTE in NHL occurs in most cases within three months from diagnosis and can have substantial impact on treatment delivery and outcome as well as on quality of life. However few data are available on potential predictors. AIMS: To better clarify the epidemiology of early (within six months from treatment start) VTE in NHL we conducted a pooled data analysis of 12 clinical trials from FIL...

The authors present a retrospective analysis of follicular lymphomas (FL) and mantle cell lymphomas (MCL) diagnosed according to the WHO classification (2008) in consecutive biopsies of GI organs in a period of 11 years. The series includes 18 patients with FL verified in 22 biopsies and 44 patients with MCL diagnosed in 54 biopsies. FL represented always a solitary tumor, most often - up to ¾ of all the cases - of a small intestine, more often in its jejunoileal than duodenal parts. The biopsies were obtained almost equally by endoscopical approach, they were usually mucosal and rarely polypectomic, as well as by surgical resections (54,5 % and 45,5 % of the cases respectively)...

BACKGROUND: Lenalidomide, an immunomodulatory drug with antineoplastic and antiproliferative effects, showed activity in many single-group studies in relapsed or refractory mantle cell lymphoma. The aim of this randomised study was to examine the efficacy and safety of lenalidomide versus best investigator's choice of single-agent therapy in relapsed or refractory mantle cell lymphoma. METHODS: The MCL-002 (SPRINT) study was a randomised, phase 2 study of patients with mantle cell lymphoma aged 18 years or older at 67 clinics and academic centres in 12 countries who relapsed one to three times, had Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status of 0-2, at least one measurable lesion to be eligible, and who were ineligible for intensive chemotherpy or stem-cell transplantation...

Bortezomib is active in mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), with approval in upfront and relapsed settings. Given inevitable recurrence following induction chemoimmunotherapy, maintenance approaches are a rational strategy to improve clinical outcomes. We conducted a phase II study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of six cycles of R-CHOP (rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone) plus bortezomib (1.3 mg/m2 days 1 and 4 of 21 d cycles) followed by bortezomib maintenance (1.3 mg/m2 days 1, 4, 8, and 11 every 3 months for 2 years)...

In the present study, oocytes retrieved from cross bred Karan Fries cows by ovum pick-up technique were graded into Group 1 and Group 2, based on the morphological appearance of the individual cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs). To analyze whether the developmental potential of the COCs bears a relation to morphological appearance, relative expression of a panel of genes associated with; (a) cumulus-oocyte interaction (Cx43, Cx37, GDF9 and BMP15), (b) fertilization (ZP2 and ZP3), (c) embryonic development (HSF1, ZAR1 and bFGF) and (d) apoptosis and survival (BAX, BID and BCL-XL, MCL-1, respectively) was studied at two stages: germinal vesicle (GV) stage and after in vitro maturation...

Gelsolin (GSN), one of the most important actin structure regulating proteins, has been implicated in the oncogenesis of some cancers. In this study, we investigated the expression of GSN in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and revealed its potential mechanisms. The mRNA and protein levels of GSN were overexpressed in HCC cells and HCC tissues compared to adjacent noncancerous tissues. GSN expression was correlated with venous invasion (P=0.0199) and Edmonson grading (P=0.0344) expression in HCC. Overexpression of GSN in Huh7 and SMMC-7721 cells significantly promoted cell proliferation and the number of Matrigel™-invading cells compared with control cells, with increased expression of matrix metalloproteinase MCL-1, MMP-2 and MMP-9, a key regulator of growth and invasion...
