J Investig Med High Impact Case Rep 2021 Jan-Dec;9:23247096211013235

Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center, Brooklyn, NY, USA.

Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma is an aggressive T-cell malignancy caused by the long-term infection of human T-cell lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1). Our understanding of clinical features still largely relies on the Shimoyama classification developed 30 years ago, which described the 4 clinical subtypes (the smoldering, chronic, lymphoma, and acute types) based on the manifestations of lymphocytosis, elevated lactate dehydrogenase, hypercalcemia, lymphadenopathy, and involvement of the skin, lung, liver, spleen, central nervous system, bone, ascites, pleural effusion, and gastrointestinal tract. HTLV-1-associated lymphoma has a variety of presentations but the presentation of massive lymphadenopathy and compression symptoms is rare and has not been emphasized in the literature. Read More

Pleomorphicskin eruptions in a COVID-19 affected patient: Case report and review of the literature.

Immun Inflamm Dis 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

Covid Unit, Istituto Dermopatico dell'Immacolata-IRCCS, FLMM, Rome, Italy.

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19), during its course, may involve several organs, including the skin with a petechial skin rash, urticaria and erythematous rash, or varicella-like eruption, representing an additional effect of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection, as commonly observed in other viral diseases. Considering that symptomatic patients with COVID-19 generally undergo multidrug treatments, the occurrence of a possible adverse drug reaction presenting with cutaneous manifestations should be contemplated. Pleomorphic skin eruptions occurred in a 59-year-old Caucasian woman, affected by a stable form of chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection, treated with a combination of hydroxychloroquine sulfate, darunavir, ritonavir, sarilumb, omeprazole, ceftriaxone, high-flow oxygen therapy devices, filgrastim (Zarzio®) as a single injection, and enoxaparin.

Shikimic acid protects skin cells from UV-induced senescence through activation of the NAD+-dependent deacetylase SIRT1.

Aging (Albany NY) 2021 04 26;13. Epub 2021 Apr 26.

Chromatin Biology Laboratory, Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC), Ctra de Can Ruti, Camí de les Escoles s/n, Barcelona 08916, Badalona, Spain.

UV radiation is one of the main contributors to skin photoaging by promoting the accumulation of cellular senescence, which in turn induces a proinflammatory and tissue-degrading state that favors skin aging. The members of the sirtuin family of NAD-dependent enzymes play an anti-senescence role and their activation suggests a promising approach for preventing UV-induced senescence in the treatment of skin aging. A two-step screening designed to identify compounds able to protect cells from UV-induced senescence through sirtuin activation identified shikimic acid (SA), a metabolic intermediate in many organisms, as a bona-fide candidate.

Bioinformatics and survival analysis of glia maturation factor-γ in pan-cancers.

BMC Cancer 2021 Apr 17;21(1):423. Epub 2021 Apr 17.

Central Laboratory, the Fifth People's Hospital of Shanghai, Fudan University, Shanghai, 200240, China.

Background: Glia maturation factor-γ (GMFG) is reported to inhibit the actin nucleation through binding to the actin-related protein-2/3 complex (Arp2/3). Considering the main function of GMFG in actin remodeling, which is vital for immune response, angiogenesis, cell division and motility, GMFG is supposed to have important roles in tumor development, while up to now, only two studies described the role of GMFG in cancers. By investigating the clinical values of GMFG using The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) data and the functional mechanisms of GMFG through analyses of Gene Ontology (GO) and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) pathway enrichments, this study was aimed to better understand the impact of GMFG in pan-cancers and to draw more attentions for the future research of GMFG.
