Atypical myopathy (AM) is a fatal disease in horses presumably caused by hypoglycin A (HGA) from ingested maple seeds and its active metabolite methylenecyclopropyl-acetic-acid (MCPA). The aim of this study was the development and validation of a rapid and simple assay for HGA and MCPA-carnitine in horse serum and its application to authentic samples. Identification and quantification were carried out by high resolution LC-MS/MS with fullscan/data-dependent MS(2) . Chromatographic separation was performed by isocratic elution on a HILIC column (100 x 2...

BACKGROUND: The introduction of specific cyclin-dependent kinase 4 and 6 (CDK4/6) inhibitors significantly improved progression-free survival in hormone receptor-positive metastatic breast cancer. CDK 4/6 inhibitors induce cell cycle arrest via liberating the tumor suppressor retinoblastoma protein from CDK4/6 inhibitory effect. Preliminary studies suggested an increase in the hematological toxicities which might affect the quality of life in such palliative setting. METHODS: We searched PubMed, ASCO, ESMO and San Antonio meeting databases for randomized phase II/III trials in metastatic breast cancer receiving CDK4/6 inhibitors with safety data provided on the incidence of hematological adverse effects...

BACKGROUND: Coniophora olivacea is a basidiomycete fungus belonging to the order Boletales that produces brown-rot decay on dead wood of conifers. The Boletales order comprises a diverse group of species including saprotrophs and ectomycorrhizal fungi that show important differences in genome size. RESULTS: In this study we report the 39.07-megabase (Mb) draft genome assembly and annotation of C. olivacea. A total of 14,928 genes were annotated, including 470 putatively secreted proteins enriched in functions involved in lignocellulose degradation...

14-3-3σ is a protein expressed in many epithelial tissues associated with essential cell functions, including cell-cycle control, apoptosis, and cytoskeletal integrity. There is a paucity of knowledge of the tumorigenesis of canine renal cell carcinomas (RCCs), and the histological origin of this tumor has not been established. This study analyzed the expression of 14-3-3σ, Ki-67, cytokeratins, and vimentin in 40 canine RCCs. Aberrant expression of 14-3-3σ was demonstrated in 15 (38%) cases and was associated with a significantly shorter survival time ( P < ...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is frequently observed in serious infections, following nephrotoxic medication, surgery and trauma. Here we tested whether the detection of two recently identified biomarkers for AKI, Tissue Inhibitor of Metalloproteinase-2 (TIMP-2) and Insulin-Like Growth Factor Binding Protein 7 (IGFBP7), depends on the expression of these proteins in cells of the urinary sediment. METHOD: We collected urine samples of 33 kidney transplant recipients and 14 non-transplanted patients who all had AKI (stages 1-3 according to KDIGO), and measured [IGFBP7]x[TIMP-2] using the NephroCheck® Astute1 40 ™ meter...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Co-stimulating molecule B7-H4 regulates T cell-mediated immune responses, participates in tumor immune escape, and promotes the proliferation and metastasis of pancreatic cancer cells. However, the specific mechanisms are unclear. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) participated in the pathogenesis and progression of cancer. METHODS: In this study, a microarray technique was used to screen B7-H4-related differentially expressed miRNAs in a pancreatic cancer cell line find those associated with pancreatic cancer...

This Phase 1/2, dose-escalating study of rigosertib enrolled 22 patients with higher-risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) (n=9) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML; n=13) who had relapsed or were refractory to standard therapy and for whom no second-line therapies were approved. Patients received 3- to 7-day continuous intravenous infusions of rigosertib, an inhibitor of Ras-effector pathways that interacts with the Ras-binding domains, common to several signaling proteins including Raf and PI3 kinase. Rigosertib was administered at doses of 650-1700mg/m(2)/day in 14-day cycles...

The objective of this study was to investigate the association of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with birth weight, weight gain from birth to weaning and from weaning to yearling, yearling height and cow weight in Nelore cattle. Data from 5064 animals participating in the DeltaGen and PAINT breeding programs were used. The animals were genotyped with a panel of 777 962 SNPs (Illumina BovineHD BeadChip) and 412 993 SNPs remained after quality control analysis of the genomic data. A genome-wide association study was performed using a single-step methodology...

Purpose: To explore the effect of the CCL2 and CCR2 system on the activation and migration of microglia and monocytes in light-induced photoreceptor apoptosis. Methods: At 1 day, 3 days, 7 days, and 14 days after light exposure, OX42 and ED1 immunostaining were used to label the activation and migration of microglia and monocytes. Double immunostaining of CCL2 with terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase dUTP nick end labeling (TUNEL), OX42, or glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) was applied to explore the relationships among CCL2, apoptotic photoreceptors, activated microglia and monocytes, and macroglial cells (Müller cells and astrocytes)...

AIM: To explore the role of macrophages in chronic pancreatitis (CP) and the effect of Dachaihu decoction (DCHD) on pancreatic fibrosis in mice. METHODS: KunMing mice were randomly divided into a control group, CP group, and DCHD group. In the CP and DCHD groups, mice were intraperitoneally injected with 20% L-arginine (3 g/kg twice 1 d/wk for 6 wk). Mice in the DCHD group were administered DCHD intragastrically at a dose of 14 g/kg/d 1 wk after CP induction. At 2 wk, 4 wk and 6 wk post-modeling, the morphology of the pancreas was observed using hematoxylin and eosin, and Masson staining...

BACKGROUND: Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a cardiovascular biomarker. We evaluated the association between RDW and cerebral stroke risk in hemodialysis patients. METHODS: A cohort of 442 adult patients on hemodialysis was studied. Strokes were defined according to ICD-10 diagnosis codes. Routine complete blood counts, evaluated every 3-6 months, were used for RDW values. RESULTS: Among 442 hemodialysis patients, during the 50-month follow-up, there were 62 cases (14...
