Expression of Beta-Catenin, Cadherins and P-Runx2 in Fibro-Osseous Lesions of the Jaw: Tissue Microarray Study.

Biomolecules 2022 04 16;12(4). Epub 2022 Apr 16.

Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, University of Foggia, Viale Pinto 1, 71122 Foggia, Italy.

Fibrous dysplasia (FD) and hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumor syndrome (HPT-JT) are well-characterized benign bone fibro-osseous lesions. The intracellular mechanism leading to excessive deposition of fibrous tissue and alteration of differentiation processes leading to osteomalacia have not yet been fully clarified. Tissue Microarray (TMA)-based immunohistochemical expression of β-catenin, CK-AE1/AE3, Ki-67, cadherins and P-Runx2 were analyzed in archival samples from nine patients affected by FD and HPT-JT and in seven controls, with the aim of elucidating the contribution of these molecules (β-catenin, cadherins and P-Runx2) in the osteoblast differentiation pathway.

BAP1 Tumor Predisposition Syndrome Presenting as a Recurrent Ovarian Sex Cord-Stromal Tumor.

Int J Gynecol Pathol 2022 May 20. Epub 2022 May 20.

The BRCA1-associated protein 1 (BAP1) gene encodes a tumor suppressor that functions as a ubiquitin hydrolase involved in DNA damage repair. BAP1 germline mutations are associated with increased risk of multiple solid malignancies, including mesothelioma, uveal melanoma, renal cell carcinoma, and high-grade rhabdoid meningiomas. Here, we describe the case of a 52-yr-old woman who experienced multiple abdominal recurrences of an ovarian sex cord-stromal tumor that was originally diagnosed at age 25 and who was found to have a germline mutation in BAP1 and a family history consistent with BAP1 tumor predisposition syndrome.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Pediatric Hospital "Bambino Gesù", Palidoro, Rome, Italy.

Background: In children, intramedullary nailing (IN) has been proposed as the best treatment when the femur and tibia are totally affected by fibrous dysplasia (FD). However, in younger children IN must be repeated to maintain stabilization of the affected skeletal segment during growth. We report the long-term results in a cohort of patients in whom more than two-thirds of cases had IN repeated during growth. Read More

Inhibition of IL-6 in the treatment of fibrous dysplasia of bone: The randomized double-blind placebo-controlled TOCIDYS trial.

Bone 2022 04 29;157:116343. Epub 2022 Jan 29.

INSERM UMR 1033, Université Claude Bernard-Lyon 1, Hôpital E Herriot, 69437 Lyon cedex 03, France.

Increased interleukin-6 (IL-6) has been observed in the bone tissue of fibrous dysplasia of bone/McCune-Albright syndrome (FD/MAS) and is possibly involved in the increased bone destruction and bone pain characterizing this disease. The TOCIDYS trial was a randomized, placebo-controlled, 1 year, cross-over, proof-of-concept trial, conducted in patients not responding to bisphosphonates, using monthly intra-venous tocilizumab (a monoclonal antibody to the IL-6 receptor) at 8 mg/kg or a matching placebo for 6 months. Over the following 6 months, they received tocilizumab if they first had placebo, and vice-versa. Read More

IFN-α blockade during ART-treated SIV infection lowers tissue vDNA, rescues immune function, and improves overall health.

JCI Insight 2022 03 8;7(5). Epub 2022 Mar 8.

Division of Experimental Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA.

Type I IFNs (TI-IFNs) drive immune effector functions during acute viral infections and regulate cell cycling and systemic metabolism. That said, chronic TI-IFN signaling in the context of HIV infection treated with antiretroviral therapy (ART) also facilitates viral persistence, in part by promoting immunosuppressive responses and CD8+ T cell exhaustion. To determine whether inhibition of IFN-α might provide benefit in the setting of chronic, ART-treated SIV infection of rhesus macaques, we administered an anti-IFN-α antibody followed by an analytical treatment interruption (ATI).

Cutaneous mosaicism: Special considerations for women.

Int J Womens Dermatol 2021 Dec 27;7(5Part A):539-544. Epub 2021 Oct 27.

Department of Dermatology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut.

Genetic mosaicism results from postzygotic mutations during embryogenesis. Cells harboring pathogenic mutations distribute throughout the developing embryo and can cause clinical disease in the tissues they populate. Cutaneous mosaicism is readily visualized since affected tissue often follows predetermined patterns, such as lines of Blaschko. Read More
