Free flaps based on static slings principles cannot provide esthetic and functional outcomes at a desired level in total or close to total lip loss. Therefore, dynamic methods have become a current issue in recent years and especially the idea of functional gracilis free muscle flap has been suggested. In this study, we present a case of a successful total lower lip repair with this flap.In a 78-year-old female patient who was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma involving the entire lower lip, bilateral modified radical neck dissection and full-thickness total resection with 1 cm surgical margin so as to include both commissures of the tumor were performed and then a free gracilis muscle flap was transferred from the same side...

AIM: To describe the pathological characteristics of the peritumoral non-neoplastic renal parenchyma (NNRP) and to investigate their impact on long-term renal function after partial nephrectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In our institutional robotic partial nephrectomy database, we identified 394 cases with pathological assessment of the NNRP and long-term postoperative renal functional follow-up. The NNRP was classified as normal (healthy renal parenchyma) or abnormal, based on the presence of arteriosclerosis, glomerulosclerosis, interstitial fibrosis, interstitial inflammation, and/or tubulopapillary hyperplasia...

Stem cells are emerging as promising treatment strategies for several brain disorders and pathologies including brain tumors. In this study, we explored the potential of creating induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived therapeutic NSCs (ipNSC) by using either unmodified or gene-modified somatic cells and tested their fate and therapeutic efficacies in vitro and in vivo. We show that cells engineered in somatic state lose transgene-expression during the neural induction process, which is partially restored by HDAC inhibitor (i) treatment whereas cells engineered at the ipNSC state have sustained expression of transgenes...

The respiratory tract is faced daily with 10,000 L of inhaled air. While the majority of air contains harmless environmental components, the pulmonary immune system also has to cope with harmful microbial or sterile threats and react rapidly to protect the host at this intimate barrier zone. The airways are endowed with a broad armamentarium of cellular and humoral host defense mechanisms, most of which belong to the innate arm of the immune system. The complex interplay between resident and infiltrating immune cells and secreted innate immune proteins shapes the outcome of host-pathogen, host-allergen, and host-particle interactions within the mucosal airway compartment...

Primary aldosteronism, a common cause of severe hypertension 1 , features constitutive production of the adrenal steroid aldosterone. We analyzed a multiplex family with familial hyperaldosteronism type II (FH-II) 2 and 80 additional probands with unsolved early-onset primary aldosteronism. Eight probands had novel heterozygous variants in CLCN2, including two de novo mutations and four independent occurrences of a mutation encoding an identical p.Arg172Gln substitution; all relatives with early-onset primary aldosteronism carried the CLCN2 variant found in the proband...

The pH of seawater around the world is expected to continue its decline in the near future in response to ocean acidification that is driven by heightened atmospheric CO2 emissions. Concomitantly, economically-important molluscs that live in coastal waters including estuaries and embayments, may be exposed to a wide assortment of contaminants, including trace metals and radionuclides. Seawater acidification may alter both the chemical speciation of select elements as well as the physiology of organisms, and may thus pose at risk to many shellfish species, including the manila clam Ruditapes philippinarum...

BACKGROUND: A particular characteristic of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the composition of the tumor microenvironment with a very high proportion of fibroblastic stromal cells (FSC). OBJECTIVE: Lapses in our basic knowledge of fibroblast phenotype and function in the tumor microenvironment make it difficult to define whether FSC subsets exist that exhibit either tumor-promoting or tumor-suppressive properties. METHODS: We employed gene expression profiling of lung versus tumor FSC from NSCLC patients...
