Impact of DPYD, DPYS and UPB1 gene variations on severe drug-related toxicity in cancer patients.

Cancer Sci 2020 Jul 3. Epub 2020 Jul 3.

Division of Molecular Genetics, Institute for Comprehensive Medical Science, Fujita Health University, Toyoake, Japan.

Cancer treatment with a fluoropyrimidine (FP) is often accompanied by severe toxicity that may be dependent on the activity of catalytic enzymes encoded by the DPYD, DPYS and UPB1 genes. Genotype-guided dose individualization of FP therapy has been proposed in Western countries, but our knowledge of the relevant genetic variants in East Asian populations is presently limited. To investigate the association between these genetic variations and FP-related high toxicity in a Japanese population, we obtained blood samples from 301 patients who received this chemotherapy and sequenced the coding exons and flanking intronic regions of their DPYD, DPYS and UPB1 genes.

Department of Endocrinology, Key Laboratory of Endocrinology, Ministry of Health, Peking Union Medical College Hospital, Peking Union Medical College, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, Beijing 100730, China.

The interplays of cellular aging and oxidative stress (OS) markers form a complex network, which has been reported to be interrelated with numerous age-related and metabolic diseases, including metabolic syndrome (MS). However, given the multifactorial mechanisms of MS, several important confounders such as dietary factors and the reciprocal effect among these markers have not been considered and adjusted in previous investigations regarding the associations of cellular aging and OS markers with MS and its related metabolic abnormalities. To explicate this, we conducted a cross-sectional study among 533 Chinese adults. Read More

Promising application of monoclonal antibody against chikungunya virus E1-antigen across genotypes in immunochromatographic rapid diagnostic tests.

Virol J 2020 Jul 2;17(1):90. Epub 2020 Jul 2.

Background: Three different genotypes of chikungunya virus (CHIKV) have been classified: East/Central/South African (ECSA), West African (WA), and Asian. Previously, a rapid immunochromatographic (IC) test detecting CHIKV E1-antigen showed high sensitivity for certain ECSA-genotype viruses, but this test showed poor performance against the Asian-genotype virus that is spreading in the American continents. We found that the reactivity of one monoclonal antibody (MAb) used in the IC rapid diagnostic test (RDT) is affected by a single amino acid substitution in E1. Read More

Although supramolecular one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) structures with various unique properties have been extensively studied, the reversible switching between tubules and sheets via lateral association remains challenging. Here, we report the unique structures of a supramolecular tubular bamboo culm in which the hollow-tubular interior is separated, at intervals, by nodes per 1.3 nm. Read More

Detection of positive selection signatures in populations around the world is helping to uncover recent human evolutionary history as well as the genetic basis of diseases. Most human evolutionary genomic studies have been performed in European, African and Asian populations. However, populations with Native American ancestry have been largely underrepresented.

Acculturation processes and mental health of Asian Indian women in the United States: A mixed-methods study.

Am J Orthopsychiatry 2020 ;90(4):510-522

Department of Psychology, University of North Texas.

Acculturation theories and research find that both new culture acquisition and heritage culture attachment are associated with positive outcomes. However, gender-related analyses are rare. In this mixed-method study of 73 Asian Indian American women who were first- or second-generation immigrants from Kerala, India, those classified as behaviorally bicultural, assimilated, separated, or marginalized did not differ significantly in well-being.

Meta analysis of the relationship between methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase C677T and A1298C polymorphism and Venous thromboembolism in the Caucasian and Asian.

Biosci Rep 2020 Jul 2. Epub 2020 Jul 2.

The First Affiliated Hospital of Air Force Medical University (XiJing Hospital), Xi'an, China.

Recent years, it is a highly debated topic that whether methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) C677T polymorphism and A1298C polymorphism could increase susceptibility to venous thromboembolism (VTE) in the Asian and Caucasian. Therefore, we expect to settle that controversy evidentially. Basic methods: Electronic databases (Pubmed, embase, Cochrane library, scopus, OvidSP, Wiley Online library, Springer link, EBSCO, Elsevier Science Direct, Google scholar) without date limitation were searched.

Recent Advances in the Preparation and Applications of organo- functionalized Porous Materials.

Chem Asian J 2020 Jul 1. Epub 2020 Jul 1.

University of Newcastle, Global Innovative Center for Advanced Nanomaterials, University Drive, Callaghan 2308, 2308, Newcastle, AUSTRALIA.

Organo-functionalized materials with porous structure offer unique adsorption, catalytic and sensing properties. These unique properties make them available for various applications, including catalysis, CO 2 capture and utilization, and drug delivery. The properties and the performance of these unique materials can be altered with suitable modifications on their surface. Read More

A study into the drug dupilumab in Japanese adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis.

Authors:

Br J Dermatol 2020 Jul;183(1):e4-e30

Atopic dermatitis (AD), a long-lasting skin disease characterized by intense itching and dry, red, swollen and cracked skin, affects between 2% and 10% of Japanese adults. In Japan, patients with moderate-to-severe or very severe AD have limited treatment options, most with unwanted side effects. There is a need for therapies that provide safe and effective long-term control. Read More

Statin use and the risk of multiple myeloma: a PRISMA-compliant meta-analysis.

Ann Hematol 2020 Jun 29. Epub 2020 Jun 29.

State Key Laboratory of Proteomics, Academy of Military Medical Sciences, Academy of Military Sciences, Beijing, 100071, China.

Previous studies exploring associations between statin use and risk of multiple myeloma (MM) showed inconsistent results. We searched for articles published in English in databases (PubMed, Web of Science, EMBASE, Medline, and Google Scholar) before October 2019. The multivariate odds ratio (OR)/relative risk (RR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were computed to explore associations between statin use and risk of MM. Read More

UCL Collaborative Centre for Inclusion Health, Institute of Epidemiology and Health Care, UCL, London, WC1E 7HB, UK.

: International and UK data suggest that Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups are at increased risk of infection and death from COVID-19. We aimed to explore the risk of death in minority ethnic groups in England using data reported by NHS England. : We used NHS data on patients with a positive COVID-19 test who died in hospitals in England published on 28th April, with deaths by ethnicity available from 1st March 2020 up to 5pm on 21 April 2020.

A comparison of cardiovascular risk scores in native and migrant South Asian populations.

SSM Popul Health 2020 Aug 11;11:100594. Epub 2020 May 11.

Freeman Hospital, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK.

Background: South Asians have increased cardiovascular risk burden but little data exists comparing cardiovascular (CV) risk models in migrant and native South Asians. Our retrospective cohort study in patients presenting with first acute myocardial infarction(MI) compares the predictive value of CV risk scores in native and UK migrant South Asians.

Methods: Retrospective cohort study of 80 UK-based patients of South Asian origin admitted with first presentation MI, excluding patients with known coronary artery disease. Read More
