    Functional Analyses of a Human Vascular Tumor FOS Variant Identify a Novel Degradation Mechanism and a link to Tumorigenesis.
    J Biol Chem 2017 Nov 17. Epub 2017 Nov 17.
    Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC), Netherlands
    Epithelioid hemangioma is a locally aggressive vascular neoplasm, found in bones and soft tissue, whose cause is currently unknown, but may involve oncogene activation. FOS was one of the earliest viral oncogenes to be characterized and normal cellular FOS forms part of the activator protein 1 (AP-1) transcription factor complex which plays a pivotal role in cell growth, differentiation and survival as well as the DNA damage response. Despite this, to date, a causal link between aberrant FOS function and naturally occurring tumors has not been established. Read More

    [Infantile hemangioma of the eyelid].
    Ophthalmologe 2017 Dec;114(12):1171-1180
    Zentrum für Augenheilkunde, Abteilung für rekonstruktive Lid, Orbita und Tränenwegschirurgie, Brüderkrankenhaus Trier, Nordallee 1, 54292, Trier, Deutschland.
    Hemangiomas are one of the most common vascular tumors in infancy. In most cases no therapy is necessary and spontaneous regression is observed; however, if they arise in the periocular region, immediate action is required as rapid growth frequently leads to obstruction of the visual field with the risk of developing amblyopia and orbital suppression up to permanent disfigurement and stigmatization of those affected. Novel pharmaceutical treatment options led to a significant paradigm shift in the treatment of pediatric hemangiomas. Read More
