Chronic liver diseases' hallmark is the fibrosis that results in liver function failure in advanced stages. One of the serious parasitic diseases affecting the liver tissues is schistosomiasis. Immunologic reactions to Schistosoma eggs leads to accumulation of collagen in the hepatic parenchyma causing fibrosis. Thus, monitoring and reporting the staging of the histopathological information related to liver fibrosis are essential for accurate diagnosis and therapy of the chronic liver diseases. Automated assessment of the microscopic liver tissue images is an essential process...

Aims: We have recently shown that a contact force (CF)-guided ablation protocol respecting region-specific criteria of lesion contiguity and lesion depth ('CLOSE' protocol) is associated with high incidence of acute durable pulmonary vein (PV) isolation (PVI) and a high single-procedure arrhythmia-free survival at 1 year. In the present study, we compared efficiency, safety, and efficacy of 'CLOSE'-guided PVI to conventional CF-guided PVI (CONV-CF). Methods and results: Fifty consecutive paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF) patients underwent PV encircling using a CF-sensing catheter targeting an interlesion distance (ILD) ≤6 mm and ablation index (AI) ≥400 and ≥550 at posterior and anterior wall ('CLOSE' group)...

Adult T-cell leukemia (ATL) is an aggressive T-cell malignancy caused by human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) that develops along a carcinogenic process involving 5 or more genetic events in infected cells. The lifetime incidence of ATL among HTLV-1-infected individuals is approximately 5%. Although epidemiologic studies have revealed risk factors for ATL, the molecular mechanisms that determine the fates of carriers remain unclear. A better understanding of clonal composition and related longitudinal dynamics would clarify the process of ATL leukemogenesis and provide insights into the mechanisms underlying the proliferation of a malignant clone...
