Identification of PKD1L1 Gene Variants in Children with the Biliary Atresia Splenic Malformation Syndrome.

Biliary atresia (BA) is the most common cause of end-stage liver disease in children and the primary indication for pediatric liver transplantation, yet underlying etiologies remain unknown. Approximately 10% of infants affected by BA exhibit various laterality defects (heterotaxy) including splenic abnormalities and complex cardiac malformations - a distinctive subgroup commonly referred to as th...

Reducing antibiotic prescribing for lower respiratory tract infections six years after a multifaceted intervention.

Few studies have evaluated the long-term impact of interventions on antibiotic prescription for lower respiratory tract infections (LRTI). This study was aimed at evaluating the use of antibiotics prescribed for LRTIs by general practitioners (GP) who underwent a multifaceted intervention carried out six years earlier.

Selected bisphenols and phthalates screened for estrogen and androgen disruption by in silico and in vitro methods.

The aim of this study was to detect endocrine disruption potential of selected bisphenols and phthalates, compare in silico prediction with results from two in vitro methods and bring up-to-date information on development of EU legislation, available in vitro methods and biomechanisms involved in endocrine disruption.

Mechanism-based pain management in chronic pancreatitis - is it time for a paradigm shift?

Introduction Pain is the most common symptom in chronic pancreatitis and treatment remains a challenge. Management of visceral pain in general, is only sparsely documented, and treatment in the clinic is typically based on empirical knowledge from somatic pain conditions. This may be problematic, as many aspects of the neurobiology differ significantly from somatic pain, and organs such as the gut...

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography for biliary system parasites.

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography may be useful in the diagnosis and management of biliary system parasites.

Laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy in pancreatic cancer: Our initial experience.

Pancreas cancer is an important cause of mortality worldwide. It has no particular symptoms, and may cause different complaints according to tumor diameter and localization. Local invasion may develop in the short term and distant metastasis may occur in vascular structures in its neighborhood. That's why, resectability rates are low at the time of diagnosis with a negative effect on survival rate...

Primary paraspinal lumbar hydatid disease: A known diagnosis in an unusual localization.

Hydatid disease is a parasitic infection caused by Echinococcus granulosus. Although the liver and lung are the most common sites of hydatid disease, it can also be seen in other organs due to migration via systemic circulation. Paraspinal lumbar hydatid disease without the involvement of other organs is extremely rare. We aimed to present the imaging and histopathological findings of a case with ...

Plasma Lipids, Apolipoproteins, and Subsequent Cognitive Decline in Men with Coronary Heart Disease.

Lipid levels are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

A Phase I/IIa Trial of Intravenous Immunoglobulin Following Portoenterostomy in Biliary Atresia.

Biliary atresia (BA) is a progressive neonatal fibroinflammatory cholangiopathy. We hypothesized that intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) would be safe, feasible, acceptable and efficacious for the treatment of BA. The primary objective of this study was to establish the feasibility, acceptability and safety profile of IVIg administration after hepatoportoenterostomy (HPE) in BA. The secondary objec...

Biliary Tract Disease in Girls and Young Women with Rett Syndrome.

We reviewed medical records and conducted a nationwide survey to characterize the clinical features and determine the prevalence of biliary tract disease in girls and women with Rett syndrome (RTT).

Re: The Association between Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms and Falls: .

A rare tumor disseminated to the gastrointestinal tract after treatment for HIV-associated lymphoproliferative disease.

Short Disease Duration Does Not Always Indicate Early Crohn's Disease.

Effects of Medical Cannabis on Use of Opioids and Hospital Visits by Patients With Painful Chronic Pancreatitis.

Kras mutation contributes to regulatory T cell conversion through activation of the MEK/ERK pathway in pancreatic cancer.

Genetic alterations have been attributed to the abnormal immune microenvironment in cancer. However, the relationship between the Kras mutation and regulatory T cells (Tregs) in pancreatic cancer remains unclear. In this study, we found that Kras mutation status as determined by ddPCR correlated with high levels of Treg infiltration in resectable pancreatic cancer tissues. Compared to wild-type tu...

B7-H3 is regulated by BRD4 and promotes TLR4 expression in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the most lethal malignancies worldwide. PDAC is resistant to chemotherapy and radiotherapy which leads to the poor prognosis of PDAC patients and a 5-year survival rate of less than 5%. Exploring the mechanism of the pancreatic cancer tumorigenesis is the key to finding a novel therapeutic strategy for cancer treatment. B7-H3 belongs to the B7 fami...

The α3 and α4 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) subunits in the brainstem medulla of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

SIDS occurs in early infancy and predominantly during a sleep period. Abnormalities in nicotine receptor binding and in the expression of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) subunits α7 and β2 have been reported in the brainstem of SIDS infants. This study focuses on the α3 and α4 nAChR subunits as α3 is important for early postnatal survival while α4 is crucial for nicotine-elicite...

Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic: Bleeding in amyloid liver: A rare presentation of primary liver amyloidosis.

N-Acetylcysteine enhances the therapeutic efficacy of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cell transplantation in rats with severe acute pancreatitis.

Severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) is a high mortality disease, for which there is a lack of effective therapies. Previous research has demonstrated that bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs), which have immunomodulatory and antioxidant properties, have potential for the treatment of SAP. It remains unclear, however, whether the free radical scavenger N-acetylcysteine (NAC) can enhance t...

High expression of Chitinase 3-like-1 is an unfavorable prognostic factor in urothelial carcinoma of upper urinary tract and urinary bladder.

Metabolic adaptation in cancer cells is important for cancer cell survival. Alternation in cellular metabolism getting more energy to support cell proliferation played a critical role in disease progression. We initially analyzed the public transcriptome of urothelial carcinoma in Gene Expression Omnibus database (GSE31684) with particular focus on genes associated with carbohydrate metabolism, an...

Natural history, treatment, and long-term follow up of patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2B: an international, multicentre, retrospective study.

Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2B is a rare syndrome caused mainly by Met918Thr germline RET mutation, and characterised by medullary thyroid carcinoma, phaeochromocytoma, and extra-endocrine features. Data are scarce on the natural history of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2B. We aimed to advance understanding of the phenotype and natural history of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2B, to ...

Careful investigation of a rare disease: insights into multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2B.

Viscothionin purified from mistletoe (Viscum album var. coloratum Ohwi) induces insulin secretion from pancreatic beta cells.

Mistletoe (Viscum album), an evergreen parasitic plant, has been widely used as an oriental phytomedicine to treat diabetes mellitus. However, it is unknown which mistletoe constituent exerts the beneficial effect against the disease. In this study, we examined the antidiabetic activity of mistletoe and investigated whether the polypeptide viscothionin, purified from mistletoe, was responsible for...

Acute pancreatitis: a multi-faceted set of organellar andcellular interactions.

Broadening the impact of immunotherapy to pancreatic cancer: Challenges and opportunities.

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is projected to become the second deadliest cancer in the US by 2025 , with 5-year survival at less than 10% . In other recalcitrant cancers, immunotherapy has shown unprecedented response rates, including durable remissions after drug discontinuation. However, responses to immunotherapy in PDAC are rare. Accumulating evidence in mice and humans suggests tha...
