Current Management and Molecular Targets of Synovial Sarcoma

Abstract: Synovial Sarcoma (SS) is a rare and aggressive form of soft tissue sarcoma (STS) with a high metastatic potential that is characterized by a unique translocation between SYT on chromosome 18 and SSX on chromosome X. Presently, standard of care involves surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

Geophysical and Geotechnical Investigation of Pavement Structures and Bridge Foundations.

Abstract: This paper presents the results of the integration of conventional investigation methods (visual condition survey, boreholes, asphalt coring, and Standard Penetration Test) with Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to generate detailed pavement condition information for a section of the Cairo-Alexandria desert highway and evaluation of the Janaklis bridge deck.

Monoclonality and Immunophenotype of Intraepithelial Lymphocytes in Lymphocytic Gastritis

Abstract: The study included 47 cases of LG. Clinical information regarding Helicobacter pylori (Hp) infection and coeliac disease (CD) were recorded. Immunohistochemistry for Hp, CD3, CD4 and CD8 (single and double-staining with CD3); and PCR amplification of the T-cell receptor gamma (TCR-γ) gene was performed in each case.

Molecular Network of NLRP3 Inflammasome Activation- Responsive Genes in a Human Monocyte Cell Line

Abstract: Inflammasome, activated by pathogen-derived and host-derived danger signals, constitutes a multi molecular signaling complex that serves as a platform for Caspase-1 (CASP1) activation and interleukin-1β (IL-1β) maturation. The activation of NLRP3 inflammasome requires two-step signals.

An Open Label, One Arm, Dose Escalation Study to Evaluate the Safety of Extremely Low Frequency Magnetic Fields in Acute Ischemic Stroke.

Abstract: There is great interest on the development of novel therapies for acute ischemic stroke, because, to date, thrombolysis is the only approved treatment. Recent evidence suggests that Extremely Low Frequency Magnetic Fields (ELF-MF) could represent an alternative approach for acute ischemic stroke therapy, because of their effects on the main mechanisms of brain ischemic damage and regeneration.

The Evidence for Opioid-Induced Hyperalgesia Today

Abstract: Hyperalgesia is an increased response to painful sensation. Opioid-induced hyperalgesia occurs after sustained opioid exposure and/or following abrupt cessation of opioid. At the cellular level, adenylyl cyclase super activation and elevated cAMP levels lead to PKA-mediated enhanced neurotransmitter release.

Transition Metal Clusters: A Unique STEM Playground

Abstract: Transition metal clusters are molecular oxide-bridged assemblies of metal ions, which are surrounded by an organic envelope; the latter is the feature that keeps them zero-dimensional (molecular), and prevents them from polymerizing. Oxide bridges are typical for transition metal clusters, but hydroxides, halides, and pseudohalides are also common.

Hepaticoduodenostomy in Hepatectomy for Perihilarcholangiocarcinoma: A Preliminary Report.

By Hiroshi Yoshida |

Austin Journal of Surgery

Abstract: A Roux-en-Y anastomosis fashioned from the jejunum (i.e., hepaticojejunostomy) is usually used to reconstruct the biliary system in hepatectomy. In this study, we review our experience with hepaticoduodenostomy (HD) as an alternative to Roux-en-Y biliary anastomosis in patients undergoing hepatectomy for perihilarcholangiocarcinoma, report our preliminary findings in 2 patients, and speculate on future applications.
