The utility of therapeutic plasma exchange in Hyperviscosity syndrome associated with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis: A case report.

J Clin Apher 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

Department of Pathology, Division of Transfusion Medicine and Hemostasis, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas, USA.

Hyperviscosity syndrome (HVS) is a life-threatening syndrome caused by high concentrations of large plasma proteins like IgM, rheumatoid factor, and other immune complexes, leading to increased blood viscosity and symptoms such as visual abnormalities, neurological impairment, bleeding diathesis, and thrombosis. While Waldenström's macroglobulinemia accounts for 80% to 90% of cases, HVS may develop in other clinical settings characterized by elevations in plasma proteins. Limited evidence currently exists describing the safety and efficacy of therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) for the management of HVS secondary to non-neoplastic conditions. Read More

Recently, we and others have shown nuclear respiratory factor 1 (NRF1) transcription factor being highly active in human cancers, but its role in astrocytoma remains unknown. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to uncover the role of NRF1 in the progression of GBM. Read More

Integrated Chip-Seq and RNA-Seq Data Analysis Coupled with Bioinformatics Approaches to Investigate Regulatory Landscape of Transcription Modulators in Breast Cancer Cells.

Methods Mol Biol 2020 ;2102:35-59

Department of Environmental Health Sciences, Florida International University, Miami, FL, USA.

The objective of this chapter is to describe step-by-step bioinformatics and functional genomics solutions for analyzing ChIP-Seq and RNA-Seq data for understanding the regulatory mechanisms of chromatin modifiers and transcription factors that can drive pathogenesis of chronic complex human diseases, such as cancer. Here we have used two transcription regulatory proteins: nuclear respiratory factor 1 (NRF1) and inhibitor of differentiation protein 3 (ID3) for ChIP-Seq and RNA-Seq data as examples for discussing the importance of selecting the appropriate computational analysis methods, software, and parameters for the processing of raw data as well as their integrative regulatory landscape analysis to obtain accurate and reliable results. Both ChIP-Seq and RNA-Seq analytic methodologies are used as instructional examples to identify NRF1 or ID3 binding to the promoters and enhancers in the genome and their effects on the activity as well as to discover target genes that can drive breast cancer.

Fine needle aspiration of malignant melanoma with myxoid features: A case report with molecular analysis.

Diagn Cytopathol 2020 Apr 24;48(4):390-395. Epub 2019 Dec 24.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, New Hampshire.

Malignant melanoma with myxoid features (MMM) is a rare melanoma variant in which tumor cells are embedded within a basophilic myxoid stroma. The stromal matrix is composed of acidic mucopolysaccharides, which are thought to be produced by mesenchymal stromal cells in response to melanoma invasion. Interestingly, this myxoid matrix is more often seen in metastasis from a primary tumor that does not have a myxoid stroma. Read More

Diagnostic and prognostic value of glucose transporters in melanocytic lesions.

Melanoma Res 2019 12;29(6):603-611

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

We have previously reported increased glucose transporter 1 (GLUT1) expression in melanoma compared to benign nevi, associated with a significantly lower survival rate. GLUT1 upregulation was highly specific for distinguishing melanoma from benign nevi, yet poorly sensitive, likely because of expression of other GLUT isoforms. The purpose of this study was to evaluate GLUT2 and GLUT3, as melanoma biomarkers. Read More
