Skin metastases from gastric cancer, a rare entity masquerading as erysipelas: A case report.

Mol Clin Oncol 2022 Jun 11;16(6):110. Epub 2022 May 11.

Second Department of Medical Oncology, General Oncology Hospital of Kifissia 'Agioi Anargiroi', Athens 14564, Greece.

Gastric cancer (GC) is the fifth most commonly diagnosed malignancy and the fourth leading cause of cancer death worldwide.

Development of Cancer Immunotherapies.

Cancer Treat Res 2022 ;183:1-48

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and University of Washington, 1100 Fairview Avenue, Seattle, WA, 98109, USA.

Cancer immunotherapy, or the utilization of components of the immune system to target and eliminate cancer, has become a highly active area of research in the past several decades and a common treatment strategy for several cancer types. The concept of harnessing the immune system for this purpose originated over 100 years ago when a physician by the name of William Coley successfully treated several of his cancer patients with a combination of live and attenuated bacteria, later known as "Coley's Toxins", after observing a subset of prior patients enter remission following their diagnosis with the common bacterial infection, erysipelas. However, it was not until late in the twentieth century that cancer immunotherapies were developed for widespread use, thereby transforming the treatment landscape of numerous cancer types.

Suspected allergy to Beta-Lactam antibiotics: An infectiological perspective.

Allergol Select 2022 1;6:27-32. Epub 2022 Feb 1.

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, University Hospital Halle, Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg, Halle, Germany.

The administration of alternative broad-spectrum antibiotics because of a suspected allergy to beta-lactam antibiotics (BLA) is one reason for the increase in bacterial resistance to antibiotics and results in further problems, such as reduced efficiency against the causative bacteria, longer hospital stays, higher prices, and more adverse events. Patients with documented BLA allergy experience infections and postoperative surgical-site infections more frequently than patients without this label. Yet, in cases of documented and even proven IgE-mediated allergy to a BLA, such as penicillin or cephalosporin, the careful application of a different BLA with dissimilar core and side chains is possible.

Diversity and dynamics of bacteria at the Chrysomya megacephala pupal stage revealed by third-generation sequencing.

Sci Rep 2022 02 7;12(1):2006. Epub 2022 Feb 7.

School of Biology & Baslc Medical Sciences, Soochow University, Suzhou, China.

Characterization of the microbial community is essential for understanding the symbiotic relationships between microbes and host insects. Chrysomya megacephala is a vital resource, a forensic insect, a pollinator, and a vector for enteric bacteria, protozoa, helminths, and viruses. However, research on its microbial community is incomprehensive, particularly at the pupal stage, which comprises approximately half of the entire larval development stage and is important entomological evidence in forensic medicine.

Supermicrosurgical treatment for lymphedema: a systematic review and network meta-analysis protocol.

Syst Rev 2022 02 1;11(1):18. Epub 2022 Feb 1.

Department of Plastic, Hand, and Reconstructive Microsurgery, BG-Trauma Hospital Frankfurt am Main, Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Background: Lymphedema is a condition that affects up to 130 million subjects worldwide. Since it is related to several complications and a significant reduction in terms of quality of life, it is a heavy burden not only to the patients but also for the healthcare system worldwide. Despite the development of supermicrosurgery, such as vascularized lymph node transfer (VLNT) and lymphovenous anastomosis LVA, the indications and outcomes of these complex groups of interventions remain a controversial topic in the field of reconstructive plastic surgery.

Department of Medical Genetics, Faculty of Medicine, Mersin University, Mersin, 33343, Turkey.

Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is a monogenic autoinflammatory disorder with recurrent fever, abdominal pain, serositis, articular manifestations, erysipelas-like erythema, and renal complications as its main features. Caused by the mutations in the MEditerranean FeVer (MEFV) gene, it mainly affects people of Mediterranean descent with a higher incidence in the Turkish, Jewish, Arabic, and Armenian populations. As our understanding of FMF improves, it becomes clearer that we are facing with a more complex picture of FMF with respect to its pathogenesis, penetrance, variant type (gain-of-function vs. Read More
