Full Abstract to Published Manuscript: Evaluation of the Scientific Impact of the American Society of Breast Surgeons Conference.

Ann Surg Oncol 2021 Jul 21. Epub 2021 Jul 21.

Division of Surgical Oncology, Department of Surgery, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus, OH, USA.

Background: The scientific rigor of the abstracts presented at the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS) annual meeting has not been recently evaluated. In this study, we sought to determine the rate at which abstracts presented at the 2017 and 2018 ASBrS meetings were published in peer-reviewed journals, and compared the rates with breast abstracts presented at the 2018 Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO) meeting.

Methods: Abstracts from the 2017 and 2018 ASBrS and 2018 SSO conferences were searched in PubMed for published manuscripts using the abstract title and/or first or last author. Read More

Did King Yeongjo (1694-1776) of Joseon Dynasty Korea suffer dementia during the last decade of his reign?

J Hist Neurosci 2021 Jul 20:1-11. Epub 2021 Jul 20.

Department of Neurology, Korea University Anam-hospital, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

King Yeongjo, the 21st king of Joseon (18th Century Korea), reigned during the prime years of the dynasty and was its oldest king. Despite his many accomplishments, debate surrounds his reputed display of the symptoms of dementia during the last years of his life.  The King showed signs of dementia after 40 years of his regency in 1762 at the age of 69 years, including disorientation, cognitive impairment, amnestic disorder and so on.

The dark side of immunotherapy.

Ann Transl Med 2021 Jun;9(12):1041

Huntsman Cancer Institute, University of Utah Health Sciences Center, Salt Lake City, UT, USA.

Immunotherapy has broadened the therapeutic scope and response for many cancer patients with drugs that are generally of higher efficacy and less toxicity than prior therapies. Multiple classes of immunotherapies such as targeted antibodies and immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI), cell-based immunotherapies, immunomodulators, vaccines, and oncolytic viruses have been developed to help the immune system target and destroy malignant tumors. ICI targeting programmed cell death protein-1 (PD-1) or its ligand (PD-L1) are among the most effective immunotherapy agents and are a major focus of current investigations. Read More

Current status of intralesional agents in treatment of malignant melanoma.

Ann Transl Med 2021 Jun;9(12):1038

Division of Hematology, Oncology and Blood and Marrow Transplantation and the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City, IA, USA.

Prognosis of metastatic melanoma has undergone substantial improvement with the discovery of checkpoint inhibitors. Immunotherapies and targeted therapies have improved the median overall survival (OS) of metastatic melanoma from 6 months to more than 3 years. However, still about half of the patients die due to uncontrolled disease. Read More

Safety of immune checkpoint inhibitors in patients with cancer and pre-existing autoimmune disease.

Ann Transl Med 2021 Jun;9(12):1033

Division of Rheumatology, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA.

Background: Patients with pre-existing autoimmune disease (AD) have been largely excluded from clinical trials of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI), so data on safety of ICIs among patients with pre-existing AD are relatively limited. There is a need for deeper understanding of the type and management of complications from ICI in patients with pre-existing AD. We sought to investigate the safety of ICIs in patients with pre-existing ADs as well as factors associated with AD flare. Read More

Applications of artificial intelligence in oncologic F-FDG PET/CT imaging: a systematic review.

Ann Transl Med 2021 May;9(9):823

The Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a growing field of research that is emerging as a promising adjunct to assist physicians in detection and management of patients with cancer. F-FDG PET imaging helps physicians in detection and management of patients with cancer. In this study we discuss the possible applications of AI in F-FDG PET imaging based on the published studies.

Narrative review of generative adversarial networks in medical and molecular imaging.

Ann Transl Med 2021 May;9(9):821

The Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology and Radiological Science, Division of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Recent years have witnessed a rapidly expanding use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in medical imaging. Generative adversarial networks (GANs) are techniques to synthesize images based on artificial neural networks and deep learning. In addition to the flexibility and versatility inherent in deep learning on which the GANs are based, the potential problem-solving ability of the GANs has attracted attention and is being vigorously studied in the medical and molecular imaging fields.

Artificial intelligence in single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging: a narrative review.

Ann Transl Med 2021 May;9(9):820

Department of Radiology and Radiological Science, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD 21287, USA.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has been widely applied to medical imaging. The use of AI for emission computed tomography, particularly single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) emerged nearly 30 years ago but has been accelerated in recent years due to the development of AI technology. In this review, we will describe and discuss the progress of AI technology in SPECT imaging. Read More

Propensity score matching with R: conventional methods and new features.

Ann Transl Med 2021 May;9(9):812

Department of Critical Care Medicine, Xiamen Branch, Zhongshan Hospital, Fudan University, Xiamen, China.

It is increasingly important to accurately and comprehensively estimate the effects of particular clinical treatments. Although randomization is the current gold standard, randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are often limited in practice due to ethical and cost issues. Observational studies have also attracted a great deal of attention as, quite often, large historical datasets are available for these kinds of studies. Read More

Upregulation of the long noncoding RNA UBOX5 antisense RNA 1 (UBOX5-AS1) under hypoxic conditions promotes epithelial-mesenchymal transition in endometriosis.

Ann Transl Med 2021 May;9(9):790

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Union Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China.

Background: Endometriosis is a debilitating gynecological condition that manifests many common malignant features, including migration and invasion. Hypoxia is a hallmark of endometriosis, characterized by endometrial cell metastasis via epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). The long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) UBOX antisense RNA 1 (UBOX5-AS1) has been shown to be upregulated in ovarian endometriosis. Read More
