Spatiotemporal expression and regulation of FoxO1 in mouse uterus during peri-implantation period.

Recent studies indicate that FoxO1 has roles in female reproductive system, especially in maternal endometrium. Although various cellular aspects and molecular pathways have been identified, the exact molecular characteristics of embryo implantation are still not completely understood. In this study, we aimed to investigate uterine expression and regulation of FoxO1 during peri-implantation period...

Atomic force microscopy: a promising aid in diagnosis of uterine smooth muscle neoplasms.

The differential diagnoses of uterine leiomyomas and leiomyosarcomas using DNA and RNA sequencing.

Although uterine leiomyomas and leiomyosarcomas are considered biologically-unrelated tumors, they share morphological and histological characteristics that complicate their differential diagnosis. The long-term therapeutic option for leiomyoma is laparoscopic myomectomy with morcellation, particularly for patients who wish to preserve their fertility. However, due to the potential dissemination o...

The small molecular CCR3 antagonist YM344031 attenuates neurodegenerative pathologies and improves learning and memory performance in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease.

The chemokine C-C receptor 3 (CCR3) plays a role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Based on our previous observations that deletion of CCR3 prevented neurodegenerative pathologies in amyloid precursor protein/presenilin 1 (APP/PS1) double-transgenic mice, we hypothesize that CCR3 antagonists may provide therapeutic benefits to AD. To this end, we examined the effect of the brain-pen...

Neuroendocrine tumor or endometriosis of the appendix: which is which?

Aerosolized surfactant in neonatal respiratory distress syndrome: Phase I study.

Treating respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) with intratracheal surfactant requires endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation, (MV) with their attendant risks. Use of non-invasive respiratory support in the delivery room averts the need for MV but delays surfactant administration.

Pregnancies and obstetrical prognosis after oocyte donation in Turner Syndrome: A multicentric study.

Turner syndrome is one of the most frequent chromosomal abnormalities in women, with a prevalence estimated to be 1 of 2500 live birth. Pregnancy in women with Turner syndrome is known to be at high risk, whether it is spontaneous or after oocyte donation, because of miscarriages and potential cardio-vascular complications which can be life-threatening. All of these patients should therefore be sc...

TLR4 antagonist ameliorates combined allergic rhinitis and asthma syndrome (CARAS) by reducing inflammatory monocytes infiltration in mice model.

The present study aims to investigate the effects of toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) antagonist in an ovalbumin (OVA)-induced mouse model of combined allergic rhinitis and asthma syndrome (CARAS). An OVA-induced mouse model of CARAS was established and TLR4 antagonist, TAK-242, was administrated intranasally or intraperitoneally. The number of sneezing and nasal rubbing was counted. The frequency of d...

Effect of Metformin Treatment on Insulin Resistance Markers, and Circulating Irisin in Women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is considered as a common endocrinal dysfunction among adult women characterized by polycystic ovaries, anovulation, and hyperandrogenism. Irisin is associated with metabolic parameters and insulin resistance. However, the association of irisin with PCOS remains poorly delineated. This study was aimed to examine circulating irisin levels and effects of metformin ...

Update on empty nose syndrome: disease mechanisms, diagnostic tools, and treatment strategies.

To discuss the proposed pathophysiology of empty nose syndrome (ENS), summarize and evaluate the role of validated diagnostic tools in the diagnosis of ENS, and review the medical and surgical treatment strategies for patients with ENS.

What do Cochrane systematic reviews say about the management of irritable bowel syndrome?

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a clinical disorder associated with high socioeconomic burden. Despite its importance, management of IBS remains difficult and several interventions have been hypothesized as beneficial for this condition. This study identified and summarized all Cochrane systematic reviews (SRs) about the effects of interventions for managing IBS patients.

Urrets-Zavalia Syndrome following cataract surgery in a case of anterior megalophthalmos.

Intraoperative and postoperative cataract surgery in eyes with anterior megalophthalmos are challenging procedures. Herein we describe the case of a 53-year-old male with anterior megalophthalmos who developed unilateral Urrets-Zavalia Syndrome following cataract surgery.

WAGRO syndrome: a rare genetic condition associated with aniridia and additional ophthalmologic abnormalities.

Aniridia is a congenital eye disorder with a variable degree of hypoplasia or absence of iris tissue. It is caused by loss of function of the PAX6 gene and may be an isolated ocular abnormality or part of a syndrome. WAGRO refers to a rare genetic condition leading to Wilms tumor, aniridia, genitourinary anomalies, mental retardation, and obesity and is caused by a deletion of the short arm of chr...

Aortopulmonary window in adults: A rare entity leading to Eisenmenger syndrome.

An aortopulmonary window (APW) is a rare congenital heart defect involving an abnormal communication between the ascending aorta and the pulmonary trunk with separate aortic and pulmonary valves. This defect accounts for 0.2% of all congenital cardiac anomalies and if left untreated can lead to Eisenmenger syndrome, severe pulmonary hypertension, heart failure, and poor survival. The authors herei...

The value of anti-Mullerian hormone in the management of polycystic ovary syndrome in adolescents.

A prospective study was carried out in 110 adolescents (13-19 years), 90 patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) (study group) and 20 healthy adolescents (control group). The study group was divided into two: Group I - patients without insulin resistance ( = 30) and Group II - patients with insulin resistance ( = 60). Group I was treated with oral contraceptives (OCs), while Group ...

Hysterectomy-Corrected Uterine Corpus Cancer Incidence Trends and Differences in Relative Survival Reveal Racial Disparities and Rising Rates of Nonendometrioid Cancers.

Uterine corpus cancer incidence rates have been projected to increase, a prediction often attributed to the obesity epidemic. However, correct estimation of these rates requires accounting for hysterectomy prevalence, which varies by race, ethnicity, and region. Here, we evaluated recent trends in hysterectomy-corrected rates by race and ethnicity and histologic subtype and estimated differences i...

Hypereosinophilic syndrome in an infant.

The hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) is defined by an eosinophilic count > 1500 cell/mm and organ damage or dysfunction that can be easily mistaken for atopic dermatitis or pulmonary pathologies. Timely diagnosis and treatment can improve the prognosis and avoid heart and renal complications or lung fibrosis.
