PURPOSE: To determine the prognostic value of the staging criteria for eyelid tumors in the 7th edition of the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging manual and to determine, for each type of eyelid tumor, which AJCC T categories are associated with increased risk of nodal metastasis and thus potential usefulness of sentinel lymph node biopsy. METHODS: Systematic review and analysis of articles found by searching PubMed and Google Scholar using the search terms "AJCC," "eyelid," "carcinoma," and "melanoma...

Kidney transplantation is the best treatment for end-stage renal failure. It prolongs the patient's life, improves quality of life and reduces costs associated with renal replacement therapy. Increasingly, newer immunosuppressive regimens allow for the proper functioning of the transplanted organ for many years. The progress in transplantation, qualification patients in older age for the procedure and longer survival of kidney graft lead to an increase in the number of patients receiving immunosuppressive drugs...

Merkel cell carcinoma is a rare skin cancer associated with Merkel cell polyomavirus in most cases. Prior studies associating Merkel cell carcinoma viral status with prognosis have inconsistent findings. Moshiri et al. used multimodal virus detection to determine that the 81% of patients with virus-positive Merkel cell carcinoma tumors had earlier stage disease and better outcomes relative to virus-negative cases.

We evaluated the impact of standardizing the originally measured serum total 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) values from Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III, 1988-1994) on the association between 25(OH)D and rate of all-cause mortality. Values were standardized to the gold-standard laboratory method. Follow-up from 1990-2006 consisted of 15,099 participants aged at least 20 years at baseline, among whom there were 3,784 deaths. Relative risk of death was adjusted for age, sex, race/ethnicity, and season using Poisson regression...

Glomerulonephritis (GN) is an important extra-hepatic manifestation of infection with hepatitis C virus (HCV). HCV-associated GN occurs due to HCV-induced lymphoproliferation, leading to the generation of pathogenic immune complexes, including complexes containing cryoglobulins. The management of HCV-associated extra-hepatic disease is focused on viral eradication, with direct-acting antiviral agents leading to high rates of sustained virologic remission. There have been a few reports of relapsing cryoglobulinemic vasculitis after sustained virologic remission was achieved with interferon-based therapies...

Myroides species are bacteria found commonly in environmental sources, such as water and soil. Despite this, they are historically uncommon pathogens, tending to affect primarily immunocompromised hosts. Based on a review of the current cases listed in the U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine (Table 1), there have been 48 reported cases of infection to date, one third of which have been reported in only the last seven years. This report outlines a case of bacteremia caused by Myroides species occurring in a diabetic male on chemotherapy for Merkel cell cancer...

With regard to ethics and legislation, what is the significant difference between a doctor terminating the life-supporting treatment of a patient in the course of his job and a greedy relative of the patient doing the same thing to inherit his wealth? Merkel offers an interesting and inventive answer to this question in terms of the improper violation of personal boundaries. However, despite Merkel's claim to the contrary, his answer does not directly address the question of the relevant ethical similarities and differences between killing and letting die in general...

BackgroundSkin cancer is the most common malignancy occurring after organ transplantation. Although previous research has reported an increased risk of skin cancer in solid organ transplant recipients (OTR), no study has estimated the post-transplant population-based incidence in the US. The objective of this study is to determine the incidence and evaluate the predictors of post-transplant skin cancer, including squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), melanoma (MM), and Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) in a cohort of US OTR receiving a primary transplant in 2003 or 2008...

The characterization of the blood virome is important for the safety of blood-derived transfusion products, and for the identification of emerging pathogens. We explored non-human sequence data from whole-genome sequencing of blood from 8,240 individuals, none of whom were ascertained for any infectious disease. Viral sequences were extracted from the pool of sequence reads that did not map to the human reference genome. Analyses sifted through close to 1 Petabyte of sequence data and performed 0.5 trillion similarity searches...

BACKGROUND: Economic, personnel, and procedural challenges often complicate and interfere with efficient and safe perioperative care of patients with cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIEDs). In the context of a process improvement initiative, we created and implemented a comprehensive anesthesiologist-run perioperative CIED service to respond to all routine requests for perioperative CIED consultations at a large academic medical center. This study was designed to determine whether this new care model was associated with improved operating room efficiency, reduced institutional cost, and adequate patient safety...

A variety of tumors may involve the eyelid, most of which are primary, but rarely can be metastatic. Previously reported eyelid primary carcinomas with neuroendocrine features include Merkel cell carcinoma, apocrine and eccrine gland carcinoma, sebaceous gland carcinoma, and one report of primary "well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor." Herein we report the first case of primary cribriform carcinoma of the eyelid with neuroendocrine features. The patient is a 75-year-old black man who presented to the clinic with a 5-year history of a slowly growing, non-painful, non-exudative lesion of his left lower eyelid...

The skeleton is a common site for breast cancer metastasis. Although significant progress has been made to manage osteolytic bone lesions, the mechanisms driving the early steps of the bone metastatic process are still not sufficiently understood to design efficacious strategies needed to inhibit this process and offer preventative therapeutic options. Progression and recurrence of breast cancer, as well as reduced survival of patients with breast cancer, are associated with chronic stress, a condition known to stimulate sympathetic nerve outflow...

PURPOSE: To develop a technique for radiation (RT) of in-transit path ways (IT) in Merkel cell carcinoma. METHOD: In the planning study, IT were ink-marked on the skin during sentinel lymphscintigraphy and wire-marked in planning-CT. Pre- and post-operative planning-CTs were acquired. The clinical target volume (CTV) included tumor bed plus safety margin, IT and draining nodes, the planning volume (PTV) the CTV plus 0.5-1cm margin. VMAT plans with 2-3 arcs were analyzed...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Patients with stage IIIB und IV metastatic Merkel cell carcinoma (mMCC), who are not suitable candidates for surgery or radiotherapy, are unlikely to achieve lasting remission or tumor control by chemo or targeted therapy. In the majority of cases, the tumor arises from viral carcinogenesis associated with the Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCPyV). In MCPyV-negative tumors with a presumable ultraviolet carcinogenesis, a high mutational burden resulting in neoantigens was discovered...

Merkel cell carcinoma is a primary cutaneous neuroendocrine carcinoma, which once metastatic is difficult to treat. Recent mutation analyses of Merkel cell carcinoma revealed a low number of mutations in Merkel cell polyomavirus-associated tumors, and a high number of mutations in virus-negative combined squamous cell and neuroendocrine carcinomas of chronically sun-damaged skin. We speculated that the paucity of mutations in virus-positive Merkel cell carcinoma may reflect a pathomechanism that depends on derangements of chromatin without alterations in the DNA sequence (epigenetic dysregulation)...

Giant cell arteritis (GCA) and Takayasu's arteritis (TAK) are major forms of large-vessel vasculitis (LVV) that share clinical features. To evaluate their genetic similarities, we analysed Immunochip genotyping data from 1,434 LVV patients and 3,814 unaffected controls. Genetic pleiotropy was also estimated. The HLA region harboured the main disease-specific associations. GCA was mostly associated with class II genes (HLA-DRB1/HLA-DQA1) whereas TAK was mostly associated with class I genes (HLA-B/MICA). Both the statistical significance and effect size of the HLA signals were considerably reduced in the cross-disease meta-analysis in comparison with the analysis of GCA and TAK separately...

Immune checkpoint inhibition holds great promise for selected tumors. The human monoclonal antibody (mAB) avelumab is directed to programmed death ligand-1 (PD-L1) and is supposed to inhibit the immunosuppressive PD-L1/PD-1 interaction and, furthermore, effect antibody-dependent cytotoxicity (ADCC) lysis of tumor cells. Areas covered: This article presents an overview of the current means to activate the antitumor immune defense by targeting PD-1 or PD-L1 with mABs and their possible role in ADCC-mediated tumor cell elimination...
