Recent regulatory approvals for the β-lactam inhibitor combinations of ceftazidime-avibactam and meropenem-vaborbactam have provided two novel therapeutic options for the treatment of multidrug-resistant infections caused by Gram-negative bacteria. Most importantly, these combination agents have satisfied an important medical need related to antibiotic-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae that produce serine carbapenemases, especially the Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC) enzymes. Both combinations contain non-β-lactam β-lactamase inhibitors of novel chemical classes not previously developed as antibacterial agents, the diazabicyclooctanes and cyclic boronic acid derivatives...

Liquid biopsies have been heralded as a game changer in cancer management. Blood tests offer a minimally invasive, safe and sensitive complementary (or even alternative) approach for tissue biopsies. With lung cancer being the second most commonly diagnosed cancer and the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, due to the limitations of tissue sampling, liquid biopsies must urgently materialize in the clinic. In this short review, we will present the current applications of cell-free DNA (cfDNA) in lung cancer management, emphasizing on our own experience and previous work...

REVIEW

Recent research has led to wide acceptance and better understanding of a novel mechanism for cell-cell communication that employs a network of extracellular microvesicles (ExMVs). Derived from the plasma membrane or the endosomal membrane compartment, these small, spherical membrane fragments are secreted from the cell surface or in the process of exocytosis from endosomal membrane compartment and (1) with ligands expressed on their surface directly stimulate target cells in a paracrine manner, (2) transfer cell membrane receptors to target cells or (3) deliver encapsulated messenger RNA, microRNA, proteins and bioactive lipids to target cells...

Presently, one of the most ambitious technological goals is the development of devices working under the laws of quantum mechanics. One prominent target is the quantum computer, which would allow the processing of information at quantum level for purposes not achievable with even the most powerful computer resources. The large-scale implementation of quantum information would be a game changer for current technology, because it would allow unprecedented parallelised computation and secure encryption based on the principles of quantum superposition and entanglement...

REVIEW
Alex J Smith, Alan S Verkman
How solutes and macromolecules are removed from brain tissue is of central importance in normal brain physiology and in how toxic protein aggregates are cleared in neurodegenerative conditions, including Alzheimer's disease (AD). Conventionally, solute transport in the narrow and tortuous extracellular space in brain parenchyma has been thought to be primarily diffusive and nondirectional. The recently proposed "glymphatic" (glial-lymphatic) hypothesis posits that solute clearance is convective and driven by active fluid transport from para-arterial to paravenous spaces though aquaporin-4 water channels in astrocyte endfeet...

Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is a real game changer in thoracic surgery. Surgical environment for thoracic surgeon have become complicated more and more as the techniques and technology have been advanced. No single surgeon can stand alone in this rapid changing circumstance. Surgeons need to meet, talk together, and discuss what they have done. There may be no perfect answers, however, surgeon will get to know which way is better. Although the chosen one could be different from each of them, surgeons can debates and conclude the consensus...

Prostate cancer (PC) is the most frequent solid tumor in men and the third most common cause of cancer mortality among men in developed countries. Current imaging modalities like ultrasound (US), computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and choline based positron emission (PET) tracing have disappointing sensitivity for detection of nodal metastasis and small tumor recurrence. This poses a diagnostic challenge in staging of intermediate to high risk PC and restaging of patients with biochemical recurrence (PSA >0...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Over the past 5 years, many articles were published concerning the prediction of high risk of mortality in apparently healthy adults, echoing the first description in 2011 of the Smurf phenotype, a harbinger of natural death in drosophila. RECENT FINDINGS: These recent findings suggest that the end-of-life is molecularly and physiologically highly stereotyped, evolutionarily conserved and predictable. SUMMARY: Taken altogether, these results from independent teams using multiple organisms including humans draw the lines of future directions in ageing research...

Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), is a transmembrane glycoprotein that is highly expressed on prostate adenocarcinomas, exhibits only limited expression in benign and extra-prostatic tissues, and thus represents an ideal target for the diagnosis and management of prostate cancer. Since its discovery over 30 years ago, significant effort has been made to develop clinical technology targeting PSMA. The last 5 years have seen an explosion of development of new agents targeting PSMA for diagnostic and therapeutic use...

To summarize the scientific basis of CT derived fractional flow reserve (FFRCT) and present an updated review on the evidence from clinical trials and real-world observational data RECENT FINDINGS: In prospective multicenter studies of patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD), FFRCT showed high diagnostic performance. More recently, FFRCT has advanced to the realm of clinical utility and real-world clinical practice with emerging data showing that FFRCT when compared to standard care is efficient in safely reducing downstream utilization of invasive coronary angiography (ICA), and costs, as well as improving the diagnostic yield of ICA...

Extraglottic airway devices (EADs) have revolutionized the field of airway management. The invention of the laryngeal mask airway was a game changer, and since then, there have been several innovations to improve the EADs in design, functionality, safety and construction material. These have ranged from changes in the shape of the mask, number of cuffs and material used, like rubber, polyvinylchloride and latex. Phthalates, which were added to the construction material in order to increase device flexibility, were later omitted when this chemical was found to have serious adverse reproductive outcomes...

Stem cells have fascinated scientists for a long time and huge research efforts have been put into them as they have the potential to regenerate diseased organs. Besides embryonic stem cells (ES) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS), it has been postulated that pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) may also exist in various adult tissues. They are thought to be more primitive than the adult stem cells (ASCs), serve as a backup pool to give rise to ASCs and thus play a crucial role in maintaining life-long homeostasis...
