Oct 15th, 2021 - It is well accepted that environmental stressors experienced over a one's life, from microbial infections to chemical toxicants to even psychological stressors, ultimately shape central nervous system (CNS) functioning but can also contribute to its eventual breakdown. The severity, timing and type of such environmental "hits", woven together with genetic factors, likely determine what CNS outc...

Oct 13th, 2021 - Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) currently constitutes the leading and overwhelming health issue worldwide. In comparison with adults, children present milder symptoms, with most having an asymptomatic course. We hypothesized that COVID-19 infection has a negative impact on the continuation of chemotherapy and increases n...

Oct 12th, 2021 - Pancreatic cancer is one of the solid tumors with the worst prognosis. Five-year survival rate is less than 10%. Surgical resection is the only potentially curative treatment, but the tumor is often diagnosed at an advanced stage of the disease and surgery could be performed in a very limited number of patients. Moreover, surgery is still associated with high post-operative morbidity, while oth...

Oct 12th, 2021 - Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (ZES) associated with pancreatic or duodenal gastrinoma is characterized by gastric acid hypersecretion, which typically leads to gastroesophageal reflux disease, recurrent peptic ulcers, and chronic diarrhea. As symptoms of ZES are nonspecific and overlap with other gastrointestinal disorders, the diagnosis is often delayed with an average time between the onset of s...

Oct 12th, 2021 - Primary gastric lymphomas (PGLs) are distinct lymphoproliferative neoplasms described as heterogeneous entities clinically and molecularly. Their main histological types are diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) or mucosa-associated lymphoma tissue. PGL has been one of the main fields of clinical research of our group in recent years. Although gastric DLBCLs are frequent, sufficient data to gui...

Oct 12th, 2021 - Esophageal cancer (ESCA) is the sixth most common malignancy in the world, and its incidence is rapidly increasing. Recently, several microRNAs (miRNAs) and messenger RNA (mRNA) targets were evaluated as potential biomarkers and regulators of epigenetic mechanisms involved in early diagnosis. In addition, computed tomography (CT) radiomic studies on ESCA improved the early stage identification ...

Oct 12th, 2021 - Multiple gastrointestinal stromal tumors (MGISTs) are specific and rare. Little is known about the impact of MGISTs on the survival of patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). The diagnosis, treatment and follow-up strategies of MGISTs is not specifically described in guidelines. To compare the clinicopathological characteristics and prognosis of MGISTs and solitary GISTs (SGISTs)....

Oct 12th, 2021 - To explore the benefits of different types of irradiation on patients with postoperative locoregional recurrence (LRR) of thoracic esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). We analyzed the medical records of 344 patients with recurrent esophageal cancer (EC) at the Fourth Hospital of Hebei Medical University. All patients met an inclusion criteria that included having postoperative LRR (withou...

Oct 12th, 2021 - Marfan syndrome (MFS) is a rare autosomal dominant connective tissue disorder. Diagnosing MFS can be challenging as the disease's severity and clinical manifestations differ between pathogenic variants, and because a lack of published information currently exists on phenotype-genotype correlations. This report aims to underline the clinical manifestations associated with fibrillin-1 (FBN1) gene...

Oct 10th, 2021 - Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) such as podoconiosis, lymphatic filariasis (LF) and leprosy mainly affect communities in low resource settings. These diseases are associated with physical disability due to lymphoedema as well as poor mental health and psychosocial outcomes. Integration of care across these NTDs at primary health care level, which includes mental health and psychosocial care ...

Oct 9th, 2021 - Osteosarcoma is the most common primary bone sarcoma and affects both children and adults. The cornerstone of treatment for patients with localized and oligometastatic disease remains neoadjuvant chemotherapy, surgical resection of all sites of disease, followed by adjuvant chemotherapy. This approach is associated with up to an 80% 5-year survival. However, survival of patients with metastatic...

Oct 9th, 2021 - Colorectal mixed neuroendocrine-nonneuroendocrine neoplasms constitute a rare group of gastrointestinal tumors composed by both neuroendocrine and nonneuroendocrine components. Nondiagnostic macroscopic features, specific histological features, and poor awareness of the disease are responsible for the underestimated incidence and conflicting data available. Due to lack of randomized clinical tr...

Oct 8th, 2021 - Men have a higher risk of death from COVID-19 than women and androgens facilitate entrance of the SARS-CoV-2 virus into respiratory epithelial cells. Thus, androgen deprivation therapy may reduce infection rates and improve outcomes for COVID-19. In the spring of 2020, Sweden was highly affected by COVID-19. The aim was to estimate the impact of androgen deprivation therapy on mortality from CO...

Oct 8th, 2021 - In March 2020, an influx of admissions in COVID-19 positive patients threatened to overwhelm healthcare facilities in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana. Exacerbating this problem was an overall shortage of diagnostic testing capability at that time, resulting in a delay in time-to-result return. An improvement in diagnostic testing availability and timeliness was necessary to improve the alloc...
