BACKGROUND: Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder is a well-recognized but rare complication of hematopoietic stem cell and solid organ transplant. Due to rarity of this disease, retrospective studies from major transplant centers has been the main source to provide treatment guidelines, which are still in evolution. The sample size of this study is among one of the largest study on PTLD till date reported throughout the world. METHODS: This study was performed at University of Florida which is one of the largest transplant center in South East United States...

The ability of priming non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) to modulate neuroplasticity induction (i.e. metaplasticity) within primary motor cortex (M1) may be altered in older adults. Previous studies in young subjects suggest that consecutive NIBS protocols interact in a time-dependent manner and involve homeostatic metaplasticity mechanisms. This was investigated in older adults by assessing the response to consecutive blocks of paired-associative stimulation (PAS) separated by different inter-PAS intervals (IPIs)...

Several studies have reported uneven results when evaluating the prognostic value of bone marrow biopsy (BMB) and PET/CT as part of the staging of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). The heterogeneity of the inclusion criteria and not taking into account selection and collinearity biases in the analysis models might explain part of these discrepancies. To address this issue we have carried a retrospective multicenter study including 268 DLBCL patients with a BMB and a PET/CT available at diagnosis where we estimated both the prognosis impact and the diagnostic accuracy of each technique...

REVIEW
Steven M Nguyen, Aurelio Castrellon, Oliver Vaidis, Andrew E Johnson
Benefits of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) have been well established in melanoma brain metastases (MBM). Immunotherapy agents such as ipilimumab (ipi) have recently demonstrated clinical efficacy in advanced disease as well. The theoretical synergistic effects of combining these therapies in MBM have not been explored in detail, however, we conducted a systematic review with meta-analysis of studies that compared combined SRS and ipi versus SRS alone in MBM. Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online (MEDLINE) and Central databases were used for our literature search, which was conducted by three reviewers...

Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) is a major subtype of peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL). Due to its low incidence, the characteristics of AITL are still not well understood. The prognostic evaluation of this disease has not been established.We retrospectively analyzed 52 patients with newly diagnosed AITL in China between January 2008 and September 2016.Among these patients, the median age at diagnosis was 62 (40-83) and 58% (30/52) of the patients were older than 60 years. Thirty-five patients were male, accounting for 67...

To assess the relevance of C-X-C chemokine receptor type 4 (CXCR4) and mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) to large-B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), levels of protein expression were measured in 56 DLBCL patients who had received rituximab-based therapy. Of these, 34 were positive for CXCR4 expression (60.7%) and 31 for mTOR (55.4%). CXCR4 expression was positively correlated with mTOR expression (r = 0.602; p = .000). CXCR4 expression was significantly associated with high lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) level (p = ...

BACKGROUND: Impingement of the ilio-psoas tendon on the acetabular component is a cause of pain after total hip arthroplasty (THA). Studies of cup revision for ilio-psoas impingement (IPI) are scarce and limited in size. We therefore conducted a large multicentre retrospective study with the following objectives: to assess the effectiveness of cup replacement in resolving the impingement syndrome, to determine the frequency and nature of complications after cup revision for IPI, and to identify pre-operative factors associated with good outcomes of cup revision for IPI...

BACKGROUND: Patients with relapsed/refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) have a poor prognosis, even in the rituximab era. Several studies have reported the clinical importance of the peripheral blood lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR) in various malignancies, including lymphoma. However, the prognostic value of the LMR in relapsed/refractory DLBCL has not been well evaluated. The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether the LMR at relapse can predict clinical outcomes for relapsed/refractory DLBCL patients treated with rituximab...

BACKGROUND: The 12-lead Electrocardiogram (ECG) has been used to detect cardiac abnormalities in the same format for more than 70years. However, due to the complex nature of 12-lead ECG interpretation, there is a significant cognitive workload required from the interpreter. This complexity in ECG interpretation often leads to errors in diagnosis and subsequent treatment. We have previously reported on the development of an ECG interpretation support system designed to augment the human interpretation process...

IKZF1 encodes a transcription factor involved in B-cell maturation and differentiation. We genotyped 218 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients and 715 unrelated controls using a TaqMan allelic discrimination assay. No statistical difference was observed in the genotype distribution of the IKZF1 rs4132601 polymorphism between DLBCL patients and controls. However, the 2-year PFS rate of patients with the IKZF1 TT genotype was 54.3% compared to 68.6% in those with the IKZF1 G+ genotypes. Moreover, the IKZF1 rs4132601 polymorphism retained its independent prognostic impact on PFS...
