Background: There is no effective prognostic signature that could predict the prognosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC).Methods: We constructed a prognostic signature based on five microRNAs using random forest and Least Absolute Shrinkage And Selection Operator (LASSO) algorithm on the GSE32960 cohort ( = 213). We verified its prognostic value using three independent external validation cohorts (GSE36682, = 62; GSE70970, = 246; and TCGA-HNSC, = 523). Read More

Background: Accurate evaluation of lymph node (LN) status is critical for determining the treatment options in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This study aimed to develop and validate a F-FDG PET-based radiomic model for the identification of metastatic LNs from the hypermetabolic mediastinal-hilar LNs in NSCLC.Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 259 patients with hypermetabolic LNs who underwent pretreatment F-FDG PET/CT and were pathologically confirmed as NSCLC from two centers.

The human intestine contains numerous mononuclear phagocytes (MNP), including subsets of conventional dendritic cells (cDC), macrophages (Mf) and monocytes, each playing their own unique role within the intestinal immune system and homeostasis. The ability to isolate and interrogate MNPs from fresh human tissue is crucial if we are to understand the role of these cells in homeostasis, disease settings and immunotherapies. However, liberating these cells from tissue is problematic as many of the key surface identification markers they express are susceptible to enzymatic cleavage and they are highly susceptible to cell death.

Background And Aim: A healthy joint is an important structure for the proper movement of the camel limb. Intra-articular (IA) injection is frequently used in veterinary practice for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes of joint injuries. Thus, the current study aimed to describe the injection of the hindlimb joints in dromedary camels based on the anatomical and arthrographic-guided landmarks. Read More

Genomic prediction models are often calibrated using multi-generation data. Over time, as data accumulates, training data sets become increasingly heterogeneous. Differences in allele frequency and linkage disequilibrium patterns between the training and prediction genotypes may limit prediction accuracy. Read More
