INTRODUCTION: Castleman's disease (CD) is an angio-follicular lymph node hyperplasia presenting as a localized or a systemic disease masquerading malignancy. The most common sites of CD are mediastinum, neck, axilla and pelvis. Unicentric CD in the peripancreatic region is very rare. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report a case of the 34-year-old lady presenting with epigastric pain for 3 months. Abdominal imaging revealed a retroperitoneal mass arising from the pancreas suspected to be neuroendocrine tumor...

A novel highly sensitive dendrimer coupled impedimetric immunosensor was developed for the label-free and reagent-free detection of cardiac troponin I (TnI) in serum samples. The immunosensor probe was fabricated by covalently attaching carboxylic acid-functionalized third generation (G3) poly (amidoamine) (PAMAM) dendrimer (Den) on the 3, 3', 5, 5'-tetramethyl benzidine (TMB) modified 6-mercaptohexanoic acid (MHA) self-assembled monolayer (SAM) on a gold (Au) electrode. Monoclonal anti-TnI antibody was then covalently immobilized on the Den and TMB attached MHA SAM modified surface...

T4 polynucleotide kinase (PNK) plays critical roles in regulating DNA phosphorylation modes during the repair of DNA lesions. The aberrant activity of T4 PNK has been proven to be associated with a variety of human pathologies. Sensitive detection of T4 PNK activity is critical to both clinical diagnosis and therapeutics. Herein, a background-eliminated fluorescence assay for sensitive detection of T4 PNK activity has been developed by multifunctional magnetic probes and polymerization nicking reactions mediated hyperbranched rolling circle amplification (HRCA)...

Stealth agents are extensively investigated as means to prolong nanostructures residence time in the bloodstream by avoiding uptake by the reticuloendothelial system. Unfortunately, commonly used agents such as poly(ethylene glycol) can adversely impact on targeting efficiency and promote immune reaction by the host organism. Therefore, there is an increasing interest in developing biocompatible, non-PEGylated organic nanostructures able to perform targeted delivery, to increase the efficacy of liposomal technology...

Stressful events evoke molecular adaptations of neural circuits through chromatin remodeling and regulation of gene expression. However, the identity of the molecular pathways activated by stress in experimental models of depression is not fully understood. We investigated the effect of acute forced swimming (FS) on the phosphorylation of the extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK)1/2 (pERK) and histone H3 (pH3) in limbic brain areas of genetic models of vulnerability (RLA, Roman low-avoidance rats) and resistance (RHA, Roman high-avoidance rats) to stress-induced depression-like behavior...

OBJECTIVES: Viral-lower respiratory tract disease is common in young children worldwide and is associated with high morbidity. Acute respiratory failure due to viral-lower respiratory tract disease necessitates PICU admission for mechanical ventilation. In critically ill patients in PICU settings, early fluid overload is common and associated with adverse outcomes such as prolonged mechanical ventilation and increased mortality. It is unclear, however, if this also applies to young children with viral-lower respiratory tract disease induced acute respiratory failure...

Why do people judge hypocrites, who condemn immoral behaviors that they in fact engage in, so negatively? We propose that hypocrites are disliked because their condemnation sends a false signal about their personal conduct, deceptively suggesting that they behave morally. We show that verbal condemnation signals moral goodness (Study 1) and does so even more convincingly than directly stating that one behaves morally (Study 2). We then demonstrate that people judge hypocrites negatively-even more negatively than people who directly make false statements about their morality (Study 3)...

A solid and cystic pancreatic lesion was incidentally found in a 62-year-old woman on abdominal computed tomography. The lesion was diagnosed as a solid pseudopapillary neoplasm by using endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration, and the tumor was resected. Histologically, the tumor cells had relatively small, round nuclei and papillary-like architecture in a hemorrhagic background. On immunohistochemical examination, the tumor cells were diffusely positive for nuclear β-catenin and cytoplasmic CD10...

Costly help can raise a relative's reproduction, survival, and reproductive value and increase the inclusive fitness of the donor of help. Donor fitness is explored here in conspecific brood parasitism. In this alternative reproductive tactic, some females, "parasites," lay eggs in nests of other females of the same species, "hosts," suppliers of help that alone take care of the offspring. Modeling shows that hosts can gain inclusive fitness if parasitized by relatives whose reproduction or survival is thereby increased...

This study tested the hypothesis that latent class analysis (LCA) would successfully classify eating disorder (ED) symptoms in children into categories that mapped onto DSM-5 diagnoses and that these categories would be consistent across countries. Childhood onset ED cases were ascertained through prospective active surveillance by the Australian Paediatric Surveillance Unit, the Canadian Paediatric Surveillance Program, and the British Paediatric Surveillance Unit for 36, 24, and 14 months, respectively. Pediatricians and child psychiatrists reported symptoms of any child aged ≤ 12 years with a newly diagnosed restrictive ED...
