BACKGROUND: Pulmonary thromboembolism is a serious cardiovascular condition with considerable morbidity and mortality. Clinical studies have indicated that hyperuricemia is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular events. The aim of this study was to investigate possible value of the serum levels of uric acid (UA) in predicting 30-d pulmonary thromboembolism-related mortality. METHODS: Pulmonary thromboembolism was confirmed by computed tomography pulmonary angiography, demographic data, troponin, systolic pressure and pulse on admission, and simplified pulmonary embolism severity index assessment...

International prognostic index (IPI) has remained the primary prognostic tool in diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) for more than 20 years. Even though the disease is more common in older population, the impact of comorbidities, dose reductions, and treatment-related adverse events (TAEs) on the outcome in elderly DLBCL patients has not been well established. We studied 413 consecutive patients aged ≥ 60 years who were treated at the Cleveland Clinic. The median age at diagnosis was 69 years, 58% of patients had high IPI score, and 85% had low Charlson comorbidity index (CCI)...

Recent advances in tumor metabolism have revealed that metabolic reprogramming could dramatically promote caner metastasis. However, the relation and mechanism between metastasis and metabolic reprogramming are not thoroughly explored. Cell proliferation, colony formation, and invasion analysis were performed to evaluate the role of FAM210B in human cancer cells. Human ovarian cancer xenograft model was used to determine the effects of inhibiting FAM210B by shRNA on tumor metastasis. Microarray analysis was used to determine the target genes of FAM210B...

In times of organ shortage, transplantation over the blood group A/B and HLA antibody barriers helps increasing the living donor pool in kidney transplantation. Waiting times are reduced while patient survival may be improved. By desensitization, both blood group A/B as well as HLA antibodies are eliminated from the patient's circulation using plasmapheresis, double filtration plasmapheresis or selective or unselective immunoadsorption. In addition, antibody production and posttransplant antibody rebound are prevented by powerful immunosuppression and induction therapy with or without B-cell eliminating anti-CD20 antibody rituximab...

The encapsulation mechanism of DNA in sol-gel derived silica has been explored in order to elucidate the effect of DNA conformation on encapsulation and to identify the nature of chemical/physical interaction of DNA with silica during and after sol-gel transition. In this respect, double stranded DNA and dAMP (2'-deoxyadenosine 5'-monophosphate) were encapsulated in silica using an alkoxide-based sol-gel route. Biomolecule-encapsulating gels have been characterized using UV-Vis, (29)Si NMR, FTIR spectroscopy and gas adsorption (BET) to investigate chemical interactions of biomolecules with the porous silica network and to examine the extent of sol-gel reactions upon encapsulation...

TRPV4 belongs to the 'Transient Receptor Potential' (TRP) superfamily. It has been identified to profoundly affect a variety of physiological processes, including nociception, heat sensation and inflammation. Unlike other TRP superfamily channels, its role in cancers are unknown until recently when we reported TRPV4 to be required for cancer cell softness that may promote breast cancer cell extravasation and metastasis. Here, we elucidated the molecular mechanisms mediated by TRPV4 in the metastatic breast cancer cells...

The introduction of calcineurin inhibitors (CNI) has greatly improved graft survival in the past three decades. However, long-term graft survival is still limited due to chronic allograft injury and side-effects of immunosuppressive medication. Areas covered: The present overview gives an update on pharmacotherapeutic strategies after kidney transplantation. The main focus is on CNI-sparing regimens using co-stimulatory blockade and on new substances on the horizone. Expert opinion: CNI sparing regimens are well-established...

Arginine starvation has the potential to selectively treat both primary tumor and (micro) metastatic tissue with very low side effects. Arginine deiminase (ADI; EC 3.5.3.6), an arginine-degrading enzyme, has been studied as a potential anti-tumor drug for the treatment of arginine-auxotrophic tumors. Though ADI-PEG20 (pegylated ADI by PEG 20,000) already passed the phase I/II clinical trials [1], it is just used as adjuvant therapy because of its low efficiency and less targeting. Then, this paper discussed the efficiency of arginine starvation mediated by ADI expressed in cytoplasm for liver cancers...

REVIEW
Caner Saygin, Hetty E Carraway
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is characterized by clinical and biological heterogeneity. Despite the advances in our understanding of its pathobiology, the chemotherapy-directed management has remained largely unchanged in the past 40 years. However, various novel agents have demonstrated clinical activity, either as single agents (e.g., isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) inhibitors, vadastuximab) or in combination with standard induction/consolidation at diagnosis and with salvage regimens at relapse. The classes of agents described in this review include novel cytotoxic chemotherapies (CPX-351 and vosaroxin), epigenetic modifiers (guadecitabine, IDH inhibitors, histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors, bromodomain and extraterminal (BET) inhibitors), FMS-like tyrosine kinase receptor 3 (FLT3) inhibitors, and antibody-drug conjugates (vadastuximab), as well as cell cycle inhibitors (volasertib), B-cell lymphoma 2 (BCL-2) inhibitors, and aminopeptidase inhibitors...
