The clinical outcome of children with high-risk relapsed B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (BCP-ALL) is poor. The present study assessed the utility and prognostic value of selected microRNA (miRNA/miR) in BCP-ALL. The changes in the expression levels of these miRNAs regarding known gene lesions affecting lymphoid development [early B-cell factor 1 (EBF1), ETS variant 6 (ETV6), IKAROS family zinc finger 1 (IKZF1), paired box 5 (PAX5), cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor (CDKN) 2A/CDKN2B, retinoblastoma 1 (RB1), pseudoautosomal region 1 (PAR1), B-cell translocation gene 1 protein (BTG1)] were analyzed...

In patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) classified as high-intermediate risk or high risk using the International Prognosis Index, the efficacy of high-dose chemotherapy combined with upfront autologous stem cell transplantation (HDT/ASCT) remains controversial in the rituximab era. In the present study, 27 patients who had been treated with HDT/ASCT in an upfront setting were retrospectively analyzed, and compared with 77 patients with similar characteristics who had received conventional chemotherapy without HDT/ASCT (the non-upfront setting)...

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. BCL2 apoptosis regulator (BCL2) and marker of proliferation Ki-67 (Ki-67) are established prognostic markers, which have traditionally been assessed separately in DLBCL. However, no studies have evaluated the prognostic value of the combination of BCL2 and Ki-67 index. Thus, the present study aimed to analyze the prognostic value of combination of these two markers. Immunohistochemical analysis was used to assess the expression of BCL2 and Ki-67 in 274 cases of DLBCL...

Lung squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common subtype of non-small cell lung carcinoma. The anticancer effects of arsenic trioxide (ATO) in lung adenocarcinoma and small-cell lung cancer have previously been reported; however its effects in SCC remain unclear. An MTT assay and western blot analysis were performed to determine cell viability and protein expression, respectively, in the SK-MES-1 and SW900 SCC cell lines following treatment with ATO. Phosphatidylserine externalization, mitochondrial membrane depolarization and cell cycle distribution were studied using flow cytometry and the in vivo effects of ATO on tumour growth were investigated with a xenograft model...

Notch 1 is a key component of the Notch pathway, which performs a crucial role in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CCRCC) development. The present study aimed to investigate whether Notch 1 could serve as a potential target for CCRCC treatment. Firstly, an association analysis was performed using 52 CCRCC cases and 30 normal controls. The results indicated that Notch 1 protein expression in renal tissues was closely associated with the incidence of CCRCC. In addition, higher Notch 1 expression in CCRCC tissues was positively associated with higher tumor-node-metastasis stage and Fuhrman grade, in addition to larger tumor size...

Pancreatic cancer, one of the most common cancers globally, is the fourth most common cause of cancer-associated mortality in the USA. The 5-year relative survival rate for patients with pancreatic cancer is ~5% and the median survival time is only 6 months. The poor prognosis is mainly due to early and aggressive local invasion and metastasis, as well as dissemination of the pancreatic cancer cells. The present study demonstrated that microRNA-452 (miR-452) was markedly downregulated in pancreatic cancer tissues, particularly in metastatic tumors and pancreatic cancer cell lines...

OBJECTIVES: Although monotherapy (mART) effectiveness in maintaining viral suppression and CD4 cell count has been extensively examined in HIV-1-infected patients, its impact on HIV-1 reservoir, immune activation, microbial translocation and co-infection with Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) is unclear. METHODS: This retrospective study involved 32 patients who switched to mART; patients were studied at baseline, 48 and 96 weeks after mART initiation. Thirty-two patients who continued combined antiretroviral therapy (cART) over the same period of time were included in the study...

Most B cell cancers overexpress the enzyme activation-induced deaminase at high levels and this enzyme converts cytosines in DNA to uracil. The constitutive expression of this enzyme in these cells greatly increases the uracil content of their genomes. We show here that these genomes also contain high levels of abasic sites presumably created during the repair of uracils through base-excision repair. We further show that three alkoxyamines with an alkyne functional group covalently link to abasic sites in DNA and kill immortalized cell lines created from B cell lymphomas, but not other cancers...

Anesthesia neurotoxicity in developing brain has gained increasing attention. However, knowledge regarding its mitigating strategies remains scant. Sevoflurane, a commonly used anesthetic, is responsible for learning and memory deficits in neonates. Molecular hydrogen is reported to be a potential neuroprotective agent because of its antioxidative and anti-inflammatory activities. This study aimed to investigate the effect of hydrogen gas on sevoflurane neurotoxicity. The newborn rats were treated with sevoflurane and/or hydrogen gas for 2 h...

Primary cutaneous diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, leg type (PCDLBCL-LT) represents approximately 20% of cutaneous B lymphomas with an intermediate prognosis. Spontaneous regression is uncommon; there are only 2 published cases. An 83-year-old woman presented 2 orange erythematous nodules on the back of her right leg with an elastic consistency, infiltrated, painful to the touch, and of an 8-month evolution. A histological examination revealed a dense cellular dermo-hypodermic infiltrate sparing the papillary dermis, composed of large cells with immunoblast and centroblast morphology and frequent mitosis...

BACKGROUND: Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is a heterogeneous immune deficiency characterized by hypogammaglobulinemia. Since B cell maturation and differentiation is defective in this disorder, we evaluated apoptosis in B cells of patients with CVID compared with healthy donors (HD). METHODS: Determination of peripheral blood B-cell subsets in CVID and HDs, was performed using flow cytometry. We compared total apoptosis, early apoptosis and late apoptosis/necrosis in unstimulated and stimulated B-cells of patients with CVID and HDs...

Approximately 30% of the patients who fulfil the criteria of Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (WM) are diagnosed while asymptomatic (indolent), and will not require immediate therapy. Conversely, patients with a disease-related event will be considered for therapy. The physiopathology of these 2 groups remains unclear, and the mechanisms of progression from indolent to symptomatic WM have yet to be fully understood. Seventeen patients diagnosed with WM were included in this study, 8 asymptomatic WM (A-WM) and 9 symptomatic WM (S-WM)...

Low frequency magnetic fields (LF-MFs) can affect cell proliferation in a cell-type and intensity-dependent way. Previous study has reported the anti-tumor effect of LF-MFs in lung cancers. Our previous study also optimized the intensity and duration of LF-MFs to effectively inhibit the proliferation of lung cancer cells. However, the anti-tumor mechanism of LF-MFs remains unclear, which limit the clinical application of LF-MFs in anti-tumor therapy. Here, in a well-established Lewis Lung Cancer (LLC) mouse model, we found that LF-MFs inhibit tumor growth and induce an autophagic cell death in lung cancer...

Mogamulizumab is a defucosylated humanized anti-CC chemokine receptor type 4 (CCR4) antibody that exerts an anti-tumor immune effect against various tumors through a suppressive effect on regulatory T-cells. We herein report a patient with peripheral T-cell lymphoma who developed Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-related primary diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the central nervous system (CNS DLBCL) after mogamulizumab therapy. Our experience should alert physicians to the possibility of the development of EBV-related CNS DLBCL in patients treated for primary lymphoma and suggests that the anti-tumor immune effect of mogamulizumab is ineffective for the prophylaxis of EBV-related lymphomas...

Lymphodepletion chemotherapy followed by infusion of CD19-specific chimeric antigen receptor-modified T cells (CAR-T) has produced impressive antitumor responses in patients with refractory CD19(+) B cell malignancies, but is often associated with cytokine release syndrome (CRS). Our understanding of CRS continues to evolve, and identification of the kinetics of CRS and predictive clinical and laboratory biomarkers of severity are needed to evaluate strategies to mitigate toxicity. We report the clinical presentation and identify biomarkers of severe CRS in 133 adult patients who received CD19 CAR-T cells...
