Diagnostic management of cheilitis: an approach based on a recent proposal for cheilitis classification.

Acta Dermatovenerol Alp Pannonica Adriat 2020 Jun;29(2):67-72

School of Dental Medicine, University of Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia.

Currently, there are no clear recommendations for diagnostic management of lip inflammation and cheilitis, which is evident in the varied nomenclature and subtypes found in medical literature on cheilitis. This can confound diagnostic management. We therefore recently put forth a proposal for cheilitis classification, defining three groups of cheilitis based on duration and etiology: mainly reversible cheilitis, mainly irreversible cheilitis, and cheilitis connected to other diseases.

Disruption of the nectin-afadin complex recapitulates features of the human cleft lip/palate syndrome CLPED1.

Development 2020 Jun 18. Epub 2020 Jun 18.

Departments of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine and Biology, Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC, USA

Cleft palate (CP), one of the most common congenital diseases, arises from failures in secondary palatogenesis during embryonic development. Several human genetic syndromes featuring CP and ectodermal dysplasia have been linked to mutations in genes regulating cell-cell adhesion, yet mouse models have largely failed to recapitulate these findings. Here, we utilize lentiviral-mediated genetic approaches in mice to provide the first direct evidence that the nectin-afadin axis is essential for proper palate shelf elevation and fusion. Read More

Departments of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine and Paediatrics, University of Calgary, Alberta Children's Hospital, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

The roots of precision cancer therapy began at the Mayo Clinic in 1914 when surgical pathologist Albert C. Broders began collecting data showing that cancers of the same histologic type behaved differently. In March 1920, based upon 6 years of clinical follow-up, Broders published his first paper, utilizing data from over 500 cases of squamous cell carcinoma of the lip that he had blindly divided into four histologic grades based upon degree of differentiation, showing that numerical tumor "grading" allowed him to predict patient prognosis.

COVID-19 and Thrombotic or Thromboembolic Disease: Implications for Prevention, Antithrombotic Therapy, and Follow-Up: JACC State-of-the-Art Review.

J Am Coll Cardiol 2020 06 17;75(23):2950-2973. Epub 2020 Apr 17.

Liverpool Centre for Cardiovascular Science, Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, United Kingdom; Aalborg University, Aalborg, Denmark.

Coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19), a viral respiratory illness caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2), may predispose patients to thrombotic disease, both in the venous and arterial circulations, because of excessive inflammation, platelet activation, endothelial dysfunction, and stasis. In addition, many patients receiving antithrombotic therapy for thrombotic disease may develop COVID-19, which can have implications for choice, dosing, and laboratory monitoring of antithrombotic therapy. Moreover, during a time with much focus on COVID-19, it is critical to consider how to optimize the available technology to care for patients without COVID-19 who have thrombotic disease. Read More
