We have read with great interest the article by Illán et al.1 entitled "Long survival in a patient with metastatic colorectal carcinoma: reality or utopia?" This article describes the case of a 42 year old patient with mucinous-type colon adenocarcinoma who had tumor recurrence with peritoneal metastases 18 months after resection of the primary tumor and adjuvant chemotherapy. After multiple metastasectomies and several lines of chemotherapy, the patient died 27 months after the recurrence.

Massive biotic change occurred during the Eocene as the climate shifted from warm and equable to seasonal and latitudinally stratified. Mild winter temperatures across Arctic intercontinental land bridges permitted dispersal of frost-intolerant groups until the Eocene-Oligocene boundary, while trans-Arctic dispersal in thermophilic groups may have been limited to the early Eocene, especially during short-lived hyperthermals. Some of these lineages are now disjunct between continents of the northern hemisphere...

BACKGROUND: Frailty is increasingly being recognized as a powerful predictor of postoperative outcomes for cancer patients. This study examined the role of the modified frailty index (MFI) in predicting outcomes for patients undergoing cytoreduction (CRS) with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). METHODS: Data from National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) patients who underwent CRS/HIPEC between 2005 and 2014 were reviewed. The MFI, validated for use in NSQIP, was used to determine correlation between frailty and postoperative outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemoperfusion (CRS-HIPEC) is a complex procedure that often requires ostomy creation to protect high-risk anastomoses. This study aimed to evaluate the authors' institutional experience with CRS-HIPEC-associated ostomies, determine predictors of ostomy creation and reversal, and assess their impact on survival. METHODS: The study analyzed clinicopathologic, perioperative, and oncologic data from a prospective database of 1435 CRS-HIPEC procedures for peritoneal metastases...

BACKGROUND: Infectious postoperative complications often delay systemic chemotherapy after cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CS-HIPEC). Because the authors have empirically observed fewer incisional infectious complications than expected after CS-HIPEC with mitomycin C (MMC), they investigated the antimicrobial properties of HIPEC perfusate fluid. METHODS: This study prospectively measured in vitro bacterial growth inhibition by HIPEC perfusate (n = 18)...

INTRODUCTION: The combined approach of cytoreductive surgery (CRS) with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) has achieved encouraging outcomes for patients with PMCA with peritoneal dissemination. However, there is little evidence for the use of EPIC in addition to HIPEC in this group of patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective study of prospectively collected data of consecutive patients with PMCA who underwent CRS and perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy by one surgical team at St George Hospital in Sydney, Australia between Jan 1996 and Aug 2016...

The use of magnetic nanostructures as theranostic agents is a multiplex task as physiochemical and biochemical properties including excellent magneto-responsive properties, low toxicity, colloidal stability and facile surface engineering capability are all required. Nonetheless, much progress has been made in recent years synthesis of "all-in-one" MNPs remain unambiguously challenging. Towards this direction, in this study is presented a facile incorporation of a soft magnetic phase (MnFe2O4 NPs) with a hard phase (CoFe2O4 NPs) in the presence of the biocompatible polymer sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), into spherical and compact bi-magnetic nanoclusters (NCs) with modulated magnetic properties that critically enhance hyperthermic efficiency and MRI contrast effect...

Local adaptation has been understudied in marine systems, but might be expected to be pronounced in the tidepool copepod Tigriopus californicus, which has a broad geographic range and extremely restricted dispersal. Tolerance to temperature and salinity was assessed in 14 populations over a 20° latitudinal range. Adaptive differentiation to temperature and salinity was found at scales as low as 5.6 km. Latitudinal clines were significant, with northern populations being more tolerant of low salinity and less tolerant of high temperature and high salinity...

BACKGROUND: Right hemicolectomy is routinely recommended in patients with histologic findings of high-grade appendix tumors after appendicectomy. Undetected peritoneal disease may be encountered at surgery. In high-grade appendix tumors with disease detected radiologically, complete cytoreduction may not be possible and outcomes poor. For these reasons, we adopted a policy of prophylactic cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to quantify the rates of peritoneal and nodal metastatic disease in patients with high-grade appendix tumors without obvious metastatic disease and to report the long-term outcomes of cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy in these patients...

CONTEXT: Ingestion of bromoxynil and 2-methyl-4-chlorophenoxyacetic acid (MCPA) in combination is associated with high mortality. Toxicity is characterised by hyperthermia and metabolic acidosis. Dialysis is a proposed treatment, but little data exist regarding its effectiveness. CASE DETAILS: Case 1: A 50-year-old female presented 18 h post-ingestion of 200  mL of bromoxynil(200 g/L) and MCPA(200 g/L). She was agitated, tachycardic and tachypnoeic. She was intubated and continuous venovenous haemodiafiltration (CVVHDF) was commenced...

BACKGROUND: Peritoneal dissemination of small bowel adenocarcinoma (SBA) is rare but is associated with a dismal prognosis. Cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (CRS-HIPEC) is a promising treatment option. We evaluated our experience of CRS-HIPEC for the treatment of SBA. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Sixteen consecutive patients underwent CRS-HIPEC for small bowel malignancy between 2003 and 2016. Clinopathological and treatment-related factors were obtained from a prospective database...

INTRODUCTION: Cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) improve survival in selected patients with peritoneal metastases. However, only some patients who are potentially eligible for the procedure are considered and referred to the appropriate surgical department. By studying the trends of patients being considered for CRS and HIPEC in our center, we hope to better understand the demographics of our patient cohort and the attitudes of physicians involved towards CRS and HIPEC...

Fever plays a role in activating innate immunity while its relevance in activating adaptive immunity is less clear. Even brief exposure to elevated temperatures significantly impacts on the immunostimulatory capacity of dendritic cells (DCs), but the consequences on immune response remain unclear. To address this issue, we analyzed the gene expression profiles of normal human monocyte-derived DCs from nine healthy adults subjected either to fever-like thermal conditions (39°C) or to normal temperature (37°C) for 180 minutes...

Thermoresponsive targeting is used to deliver therapeutic agents at hyperthermic conditions (39-45 °C). However, available thermoresponsive drug delivery systems (TDDS), including liposomes, have a complex method of preparation involving toxic solvents and reagents. The objective of this in vitro study was to prepare and characterize thermoresponsive lipid nanoparticles (TLN) for treating glioblastoma, the most aggressive brain tumor whose treatment is limited by a low blood brain barrier (BBB) permeability of drugs...

Transcriptional hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) plays the fundamental role in adaptive processes in response to hypoxia. Specific HIF-1α target genes are involved in glycolysis, erythropoiesis and angiogenesis to promote survival. In our previous study we have demonstrated that naturally low body temperature of newborn rats protects them against damage due to perinatal hypoxia. Therefore, our experiments aimed at checking the effects of body temperature during simulated perinatal anoxia on subsequent changes of expression of HIF-1α and its specific target genes such as VEGF and EPO in the rat brain...

Elevating core temperature at rest causes increases in minute ventilation (VE), which leads to reductions in both arterial CO2 partial pressure (hypocapnia) and cerebral blood flow. We tested the hypothesis that in resting heated humans this hypocapnia diminishes the ventilatory sensitivity to rising core temperature but does not explain a large portion of the decrease in cerebral blood flow. Fourteen healthy men were passively heated using hot-water immersion (41°C) combined with a water-perfused suit, which caused esophageal temperature (Tes) to reach 39°C...

OBJECTIVE: Uterine sarcoma (US) is a rare tumor representing 1% of female genital tract malignancies. Peritoneal sarcomatosis (PS) after US, diminishes median overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) with cytoreductive surgery (CRS) alone, with or without systemic chemotherapy is <1 year and 6 months, respectively. A multi-institutional review of PS from US was conducted to evaluate CRS and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) and effects on survival outcomes...
