Equine sarcoids are common therapy-resistant skin tumours induced by bovine papillomavirus type 1 or 2 (BPV1, BPV2) infection. We have previously shown that prophylactic vaccination with BPV1 L1 virus-like particles (VLPs) efficiently protects horses from experimental BPV1-induced pseudo-sarcoid development. Here, we assessed BPV1 L1 VLP vaccine-mediated long-term protection from experimental tumour formation in seven horses 5 years after immunization with three different doses of BPV1 L1 VLPs, and three unvaccinated control animals...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to determine whether (1) tranexamic acid (TXA) reduces the incidence of transfusion (2) TXA reduces the calculated blood loss, and (3) there are any observable differences in 30- and 90-day complications with TXA administration during arthroplasty for femoral neck fracture (FNF). DESIGN: Prospective, double-blinded, randomized controlled trial. SETTING: Level 1 Academic Trauma Center. PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS: One hundred thirty-eight patients who presented with a low-energy, isolated, FNF (AO 31B) treated with either hemi- or total hip arthroplasty within 72 hours of injury were randomized to either the TXA group (69 patients) or placebo group (69 patients)...

BACKGROUND: It is unclear why human papillomavirus (HPV)-related head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) has improved clinical behavior compared to HPV-negative HNSCC. We sought to better characterize the immune microenvironment of tongue cancers by examining the CD3 and CD8 TIL pattern in HPV-positive and -negative tumors. METHODS: Histologic sections from 40 oral tongue and oropharyngeal cases were analyzed (n= 21 HPV DNA-positive, n= 19 HPV DNA-negative)...

The mastocytoses comprise a group of proliferative stem cell disorders defined by the abnormal accumulation of mast cells (MCs) in the skin or other body tissues including the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract, and liver. Systemic mastocytosis is defined by the presence of one major and one minor criterion or 3 minor criteria delineated by the World Health Organization (WHO). We present the case of a 57-year-old woman with a 10-year history of red-brown pruritic maculopapular lesions on the upper and lower extremities and trunk who was originally diagnosed with cutaneous mastocytosis...

BACKGROUND: No blood biomarkers to detect early oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) without clinical signs exist - diagnosis is solely based on histology of a visible tumour. Most OSCC patients are diagnosed at advanced stage, which leads to significant morbidity and poor survival. Our aim was to find the serum screening or detection biomarkers in OSCC. METHODS: Serum samples from patients with OSCC treated at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Helsinki University Hospital (Finland) were collected...

INTRODUCTION: Femoral neck fractures are a common occurrence in lower limb amputees. Good post-operative results of hip hemiarthroplasty have been described in below-knee amputees. However, to our knowledge, very few such cases have been reported in above-knee amputees. CASE REPORT: We present a case of a 75-year-old male patient who underwent above-knee amputation of the right lower limb for severe crush injury right leg and a bipolar hemiarthroplasty for an ipsilateral fracture neck of femur sustained in the same road traffic accident...

Bone loss occurs frequently following allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (alloSCT). The Australasian Leukaemia and Lymphoma Group conducted a prospective phase II study of pretransplant zoledronic acid (ZA) and individualised post-transplant ZA to prevent bone loss in alloSCT recipients. Patients received ZA 4 mg before conditioning. Administration of post-transplant ZA from days 100 to 365 post alloSCT was determined by a risk-adapted algorithm based on serial bone density assessments and glucocorticoid exposure...

Clathrin-mediated endocytosis (CME) involves membrane-associated scaffolds of the bin-amphiphysin-rvs (BAR) domain protein family as well as the GTPase dynamin, and is accompanied and perhaps triggered by changes in local lipid composition. How protein recruitment, scaffold assembly and membrane deformation is spatiotemporally controlled and coupled to fission is poorly understood. We show by computational modelling and super-resolution imaging that phosphatidylinositol 3,4-bisphosphate [PI(3,4)P2] synthesis within the clathrin-coated area of endocytic intermediates triggers selective recruitment of the PX-BAR domain protein SNX9, as a result of complex interactions of endocytic proteins competing for phospholipids...

The present study aimed to investigate the effects of the toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4)/nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-ҡB) signaling pathway in cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury. A total of 125 male Sprague Dawley (SD) rats were selected for this study. Fifty SD rats were randomly divided into the control, sham injury, 0.5 h perfusion, 2 h perfusion, and 6 h perfusion groups to establish the model of ischemia-reperfusion. The rat brain injury model was established using the other 75 male SD rats, and different model groups with different treatments were established (15 rats per group): model control group (injected with 10 μL of saline solution), model + TAK-242 group (injected with resatorvid), model + PDTC group (injected with pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate), model + LPS group (injected with lipopolysaccharide), and sham injury group (incision to the neck skin and injected with 10 μL of saline solution for normal rats)...

Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is the sixth most common cancer worldwide. It accounts for 2.5% of all new cancer cases and 1.9% of all cancer deaths annually. More than 90% of oral cancers (occurring in the mouth, lip, and tongue) are oral squamous cell carcinoma. The incidence rate of oral cancer varies widely throughout the world, with an evident prevalence in South Asian countries. This high incidence occurs in correlation with oral cancer-associated behaviors such as alcohol, tobacco use...

Synopsis There is considerable evidence to support the importance of cervical afferent dysfunction in the development of dizziness, unsteadiness, visual disturbances and altered balance, eye, and head movement control following neck trauma, especially in those with persistent symptoms. However, there are other possible causes for these symptoms and secondary adaptive changes should also be considered in the process of differential diagnosis. Understanding the nature of these symptoms and the differential diagnosis of their potential origin is important for rehabilitation...
