ATL remains a challenging disease as a result of its diverse clinical features, multidrug resistance of malignant cells, frequent large tumor burden, hypercalcemia, and/or frequent opportunistic infection. In 20...

Outcome of Children With Hypodiploid Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia: A Retrospective Multinational Study.

We determined the prognostic factors and utility of allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation among children with newly diagnosed hypodiploid acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) treated in contemporary clinical trials.

Update on calciphylaxis etiopathogenesis, diagnosis, and management.

Calciphylaxis is a rare painful skin condition classically seen in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), particularly those on chronic dialysis; however, it also has been increasingly reported in patients with normal renal function. Calciphylaxis is associated with high mortality rates, and excruciating pain and nonhealing ulcers often lead to recurrent hospitalizations and infectious comp...

In the Eye of the Beholder: A Conjunctival Lesion in a Woman With Acute Myelogenous Leukemia.

Hepatitis B virus X protein induces size-selective membrane permeabilization through interaction with cardiolipin.

Hepatitis B virus X protein (HBx) functions in a variety of cellular events during the HBV life cycle. In a previous study, we reported that the HBx protein is sufficient to induce mitochondrial membrane permeabilization; however, the exact mechanism of HBx-induced mitochondrial membrane permeabilization has been not proposed. In this study, we report that HBx specifically targets cardiolipin (CL)...

Vertically acquired occult hepatitis B virus infection may become overt after several years.

To investigate the frequency of vertically acquired occult hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection (OBI).

Intestinally derived bacterial products stimulate development of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis.

Fatty livers are susceptible to factors that cause inflammation and fibrosis, but fat deposition and the inflammatory response can be dissociated. While nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), caused by pathologic fat accumulation inside the liver, can remain stable for several years, in other cases NAFLD progresses to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), which is characterized by fat accumulati...

PIM inhibitor SMI-4a induces cell apoptosis in B-cell acute lymphocytic leukemia cells via the HO-1-mediated JAK2/STAT3 pathway.

The serine/threonine PIM protein kinases are critical regulators of tumorigenesis in multiple cancers. However, whether PIMs are potential therapeutic targets for treating B-cell acute lymphocytic leukemia (B-ALL) remains unclear. Therefore, here, PIM expression was detected in B-ALL patients and the effects of SMI-4a, a pan-PIM small molecule inhibitor, were investigated in B-ALL cells.

Upregulation of cystathionine-γ-lyase/hydrogen sulfide pathway underlies the celecoxib counteraction of cyclosporine-induced hypertension and renal insult in rats.

We recently reported that celecoxib, a selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX2) inhibitor, counteracts the adverse circulatory and renal actions of cyclosporine (CSA). Despite the seemingly advantageous nature of this interaction particularly in clinical settings that necessitate the combined use of the two drugs such as immune-related arthritis, the underlying mechanism remains elusive. This prompted us...

The damage-associated molecular pattern HMGB1 is released early after clinical hepatic ischemia/reperfusion.

Activation of sterile inflammation after hepatic I/R culminates in liver injury. The route to liver damage starts with mitochondrial oxidative stress and cell death during early reperfusion. The link between mitochondrial oxidative stress, damage-associate molecular pattern (DAMP) release, and sterile immune signaling is incompletely understood and lacks clinical validation. The aim of the study w...

Combination Lenalidomide and Azacitidine: A Novel Salvage Therapy in Patients Who Relapse After Allogeneic Stem-Cell Transplantation for Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

Salvage options for patients who relapse after allogeneic stem-cell transplantation (allo-SCT) for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplasia (MDS) remain limited, and novel treatment strategies are required. Both lenalidomide (LEN) and azacitidine (AZA) possess significant antitumor activity effect in AML. Administration of LEN post-transplantation is associated with excessive rates of graft...

Renal function and risk factors for renal disease for patients receiving HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis at an inner metropolitan health service.

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) with tenofovir disoproxil fumarate/emtricitabine (TDF/FTC) significantly reduces the risk of HIV acquisition. TDF is a known nephrotoxin however, renal dysfunction from TDF is mostly reversible following discontinuation.

GRP78 expression in tumor and perinephric adipose tissue is not an optimal risk stratification marker for clear cell renal cell carcinoma.

Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is the most common subtype of kidney cancer, which is difficult to treat and lacks a reliable prognostic marker. A previous study showed that the endoplasmic reticulum stress marker, glucose-regulated-protein-78 (GRP78), is a potential prognostic marker for ccRCC. The present study aimed to: (1) examine whether GRP78 was upregulated in ccRCC compared with ma...

Evaluation of five rapid diagnostic tests for detection of antibodies to hepatitis C virus (HCV): A step towards scale-up of HCV screening efforts in India.

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a major contributor to morbidity and mortality worldwide. Early detection and curative treatment of HCV can reduce the risk of liver-related mortality and serve to prevent transmission of new infections. India is estimated to have about six million HCV infected individuals, most of whom are unaware of their infection status. Rapid diagnostic test kits (RDTs) co...

The Role of Innate Immune Cells in Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis.

Inflammation and metabolic dysfunction are hallmarks of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), which is one of the fastest-growing liver diseases worldwide. Emerging evidence indicates that innate immune mechanisms are pivotal drivers of inflammation and other pathological manifestations observed in NASH, such as hepatosteatosis, insulin resistance and fibrosis. This robust innate immune reaction is...

Disparities in uptake of direct-acting antiviral Therapy for Hepatitis C among people who inject drugs in a Canadian setting.

Despite the high burden of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection among people who inject drugs (PWID), uptake of interferon-based therapies has been extremely low. Increasing availability of direct-acting antiviral (DAA)-based therapies offers the possibility of rapid treatment expansion with the goal of controlling the HCV epidemic. We evaluated DAA-based treatment uptake among HCV-positive PWID in V...

Ki-67 protein as a tumour proliferation marker.

Newer treatment strategy based on proliferative nuclear marker Ki-67 targeted therapy holds promise for prioritized/personalized treatment options with regard to improved survival and outcome in patients with renal cancer. Over the past decade, the importance of Ki-67 in prognosis of breast cancer has been widely studied, however very few studies and literatures are available in the context of ren...

Cell culture systems for the study of hepatitis E virus.

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is the causative agent of hepatitis E in humans and is the leading cause of enterically-transmitted viral hepatitis worldwide. Increasing numbers of HEV infections, together with no available specific anti-HEV treatment, contributes to the pathogen's major health burden. A robust cell culture system is required for virologic studies and the development of new antiviral drug...

A novel HBx genotype serves as a preoperative predictor and fails to activate the JAK1/STATs pathway in hepatocellular carcinoma.

Genetic variability in the Hepatitis B virus X gene (HBx) is frequently observed and is associated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) progression. However, a genotype classification based on the full-length HBx sequence and the impacts of genotypes on hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related HCC prognosis remain unclear.

Outcomes of treatment for hepatitis C in prisoners using a nurse-led, state-wide model of care.

Treatment programs for people who inject drugs (PWID), including prisoners, are important for achieving hepatitis C elimination targets. There are multiple barriers to treatment of hepatitis C in prisons, including access to specialist physicians, testing and antiviral therapy, short prison sentences, and frequent inter-prison transfer. A state-wide program for assessment and management of hepatit...

Dual Infection with Hepatitis B Virus and Hepatitis C Virus Correlated with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.
