BACKGROUND: Radiotherapy is commonly used to treat cancers. To date, there has been no study focusing on the effects of radiotherapy on hydatid disease in large animals. In this study, we aim to investigate the efficiency and safety of radiotherapy for treating hydatid disease caused by Echinococcus granulosus in naturally infected sheep. METHODS: Ultrasound was used to screen naturally infected sheep in an echinococcosis endemic area in Xinjiang, China. A computer tomography (CT) scan confirmed the presence of hydatid cysts...

Gastrointestinal diffuse large B cell lymphoma (GI DLBCL) is the most common gastrointestinal lymphoma, Enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of several cancers. However, EZH2 has not been studied in GI DLBCL. Thus, we investigated EZH2 expression and EZH2 Y641 mutation in 100 GI DLBCL specimens by immunohistochemistry and sequencing. In addition, trimethylated H3K27 (H3K27me3), BCL2, c-MYC, and Ki-67 expression and Helicobacter pylori infection were detected, and BCL2 and c-MYC gene translocation were assessed...

miRNAs play important roles in biological processes, such as proliferation, metabolism, differentiation, and apoptosis, whereas altered expression levels contribute to diseases, such as cancers. We identified miRNAs with aberrant expression in Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) and investigated their role in pathogenesis. Small RNA sequencing revealed 84 significantly differentially expressed miRNAs in HL cell lines as compared to germinal center B cells. Three up-regulated miRNAs-miR-23a-3p, miR-24-3p, and miR-27a-3p-were derived from one primary miRNA transcript...

Reactive germinal centers (GCs) in the bone marrow (BM) have been described in patients with autoimmune disorders, infections, malignancies and following certain drug therapies, or as an isolated finding without obvious underlying disease. In this study, we describe the clinical conditions in which reactive GCs occur in BM samples, and their topography and accompanying laboratory and ancillary findings in the setting of a cancer center. We identified 32 BM specimens with reactive GCs with an estimated frequency of <0...

Long non-coding RNAs are known to be involved in cancer progression, but their biological functions and prognostic values are still largely unexplored in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. In this study, long non-coding RNAs expression was characterized in 1,403 samples including normal and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma by repurposing 7 microarray datasets. Compared with any stage of normal B cells, NONHSAG026900 expression was significantly decreased in tumor samples. And in germinal center B-cell subtype, the significantly higher expression of NONHSAG026900 indicated it was a favorable prognosis biomarker...

Broccoli (Brassica oleracea L. var. italica) sprouts contain glucosinolates (GLs) that when hydrolysed yield health promoting isothiocyanates such as sulforaphane (SF). SF content can be increased by salt (NaCl) stress, although high salt concentrations negatively impact plant growth. Salicylic acid (SA) treatments can attenuate the negative effects of salt on growth. To test whether sprout isothiocyanate content could be elevated without sprout growth being compromised, broccoli seed were germinated and grown for seven days in salt (0, 80 and 160 mM) alone and in combination with 100 μM SA...

ABBV-075 is a potent and selective BET family bromodomain inhibitor that recently entered Phase I clinical trials. Comprehensive preclinical characterization of ABBV-075 demonstrated broad activity across cell lines and tumor models representing a variety of hematological malignancies and solid tumor indications. In most cancer cell lines derived from solid tumors, ABBV-075 triggers prominent G1 cell cycle arrest without extensive apoptosis. In this study, we show that ABBV-075 efficiently triggers apoptosis in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) and multiple myeloma (MM) cells...

Oocyte cryopreservation is imperative for assisted reproductive technologies (ART). Although cryopreservation of oocytes at the Metaphase II has been widely used, immature oocytes at the germinal vesicle stage (GV-oocytes) need to be cryopreserved in certain situations such as cancer patients; however, the success rate of embryonic development from the GV-oocytes remains low largely due to the requirement for in vitro maturation (IVM). Our aim was to investigate the effects of glutathione (GSH) supplementation during vitrification and warming of mouse GV-oocytes on the preservation of developmental competence...

IL-31 is a recently identified cytokine with a well-defined role in the pathogenesis of pruritus. IL-31, whose production is induced by IL-4 and IL-33, binds a heterodimeric receptor (R) composed of the exclusive IL-31RA chain and the shared oncostatin M R. Signaling through the IL-31R involves the MAPK, PI3K/AKT and Jak/STAT pathways. Different variants and isoforms of IL-31RA with different signaling activities have been identified. IL-31 is produced predominantly by circulating Th2 lymphocytes and skin-homing CLA(+)CD45RO(+) T cells...

Xeroderma pigmentosum is a rare autosomal recessive disorder which is caused by germinal mutations responsible for the repair of ultraviolet (UV) radiation-induced DNA lesions. It is characterized by hypersensitivity to UV radiation, poikiloderma, ocular surface disease, and in some patients pronounced sunburn and neurological disease. Patients have a very high risk of developing ocular and skin cancer on exposed body sites. No cure is available for these patients except complete protection from all types of UV radiation...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: There is mounting evidence that heterogeneity of the epigenome is a feature of many cancers, including B-cell lymphomas, and presents important clinical implications. The purpose of this review is to explain the biological and clinical relevance of this epigenetic phenomenon in B-cell neoplasms. RECENT FINDINGS: Here, we summarize new findings demonstrating that B-cell lymphomas display increased DNA methylation heterogeneity compared to their normal counterparts...

Checkpoint inhibitors, like ipilimumab, nivolumab, and pembrolizumab, have provided a breakthrough in cancer immunotherapy, such as in the treatment of melanoma and colorectal and lung cancer. The close relationship between the number of mutations (mutational load) and the response to checkpoint immunotherapy has been convincingly demonstrated in these cancers. Hypermutations in tumors are caused by environmental factors, like UV radiations or cigarette smoking, or by germinal mutations affecting genes of the Mismatch Repair (MMR) machinery, as in the Lynch syndrome...

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) with matrical differentiation is a fairly rare neoplasm, with about 30 cases documented mainly as isolated case reports. We studied a series of this neoplasm, including cases with an atypical matrical component, a hitherto unreported feature. Lesions coded as BCC with matrical differentiation were reviewed; 22 cases were included. Immunohistochemical studies were performed using antibodies against BerEp4, β-catenin, and epithelial membrane antigen (EMA). Molecular genetic studies using Ion AmpliSeq Cancer Hotspot Panel v2 by massively parallel sequencing on Ion Torrent PGM were performed in 2 cases with an atypical matrical component (1 was previously subjected to microdissection to sample the matrical and BCC areas separately)...

PRAME is a cancer/testis antigen that is predominantly expressed in normal testicular tissues and a variety of tumors. The function of the PRAME family in spermatogenesis remains unknown. This study was designed to characterize the Y-linked PRAME (PRAMEY) protein during spermatogenesis in cattle. We found that PRAMEY is a novel male germ cell-specific, and a germinal granule-associated protein that is expressed in spermatogenic cells during spermatogenesis. The intact PRAMEY protein (58 kDa) was detected in different ages of testes but not in epididymal spermatozoa...

The lymph node (LN) pre-metastatic niche is faintly characterized in lymphophilic human neoplasia, although LN metastasis is considered as the strongest prognostic marker of patient survival. Due to its specific dissemination through a complex bilateral pelvic lymphatic system, early cervical cancer is a relevant candidate for investigating the early nodal metastatic process. In the present study, we analyzed in-depth both the lymphatic vasculature and the immune climate of pre-metastatic sentinel LN (SLN), in 48 cases of FIGO stage IB1 cervical neoplasms...

MAGE-A antigens are expressed in a variety of cancers of diverse histological origin and germinal cells. Due to their relatively high tumor specificity, they represent attractive targets for active specific and adoptive cancer immunotherapies. Here, we (i) review past and ongoing clinical studies targeting these antigens, (ii) analyze advantages and disadvantages of different therapeutic approaches, and (iii) discuss possible improvements in MAGE-A-specific immunotherapies.
