Front Oncol 2022 6;12:769530. Epub 2022 May 6.

Department of Hematology, Catholic University Lymphoma Group, Seoul St. Mary's Hospital, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of South Korea, Seoul, South Korea.

Ocular adnexal mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma (OAML) is the most common type of ocular lymphoma with a higher prevalence in Asia than in Western countries. OAML represents 1%-2% of all non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, 5%-15% of extranodal lymphomas, and approximately 55% of orbital malignancies. "Watch and wait" after biopsy or surgical resection, radiation therapy, and systemic treatment, including antibiotics administration and chemotherapy with various combinations of regimens can be considered for OAML treatment.

Helicobacter 2022 Jun 1;27(3):e12887. Epub 2022 Apr 1.

Department of Endoscopy, Hiroshima University Hospital, Hiroshima, Japan.

Background: We have previously reported that eradication therapy was more effective against Helicobacter pylori (Hp)-negative gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma in non-Helicobacter pylori Helicobacter (NHPH)-positive cases than in NHPH-negative cases and that the infection status of NHPH could be a predictive marker for the efficacy of eradication therapy for H. pylori negative gastric MALT lymphoma. However, a diagnostic test for NHPH infection has not yet been clinically established. Read More

Analysis of Genetic Alterations in Ocular Adnexal Mucosa-Associated Lymphoid Tissue Lymphoma With Whole-Exome Sequencing.

Front Oncol 2022 11;12:817635. Epub 2022 Mar 11.

Department of Ophthalmology, The First Affiliated Hospital with Nanjing Medical University, Nanjing, China.

Next-generation sequencing studies on ocular adnexal marginal zone lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (OAML) have to date revealed several targets of genetic aberrations. However, most of our current understanding of the pathogenesis and prognosis of OAML is primarily based on studies conducted in populations from Europe and the US. Furthermore, the majority were based on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue, which generally has poor integrity and creates many sequencing artifacts. Read More

Impact of Early ARV Initiation on Relative Proportions of Effector and Regulatory CD8 T Cell in Mesenteric Lymph Nodes and Peripheral Blood During Acute SIV Infection of Rhesus Macaques.

J Virol 2022 04 21;96(7):e0025522. Epub 2022 Mar 21.

Department of Biological Sciences and CERMO-FC Research Centre, Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

CD8 T cells are key players in the clearance of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected cells, such that CD8 T-cell dysfunction contributes to viral persistence despite antiretroviral (ARV) therapy. Mesenteric lymph nodes (MLNs) are major sites of gut mucosal immunity. While different CD8 T cell subsets such as CD8 alpha-alpha (CD8αα), CD8 alpha-beta (CD8αβ), CD8 regulatory T cells (Treg), and mucosa-associated invariant T cells (MAIT) are present in the gut and exhibit distinct functions, their dynamics remain poorly understood due to the lack of accessibility to these tissues in humans.

Targeting MALT1 Suppresses the Malignant Progression of Colorectal Cancer miR-375/miR-365a-3p/NF-κB Axis.

Front Cell Dev Biol 2022 2;10:845048. Epub 2022 Mar 2.

Department of General Surgery and Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory of Precision Medicine for Gastrointestinal Tumor, Nanfang Hospital, The First School of Clinical Medicine, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, China.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a malignant tumor with the second highest morbidity and the third highest mortality in the world, while the therapeutic options of targeted agents remain limited. Here, mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma translocation protein 1 (MALT1), known as the upstream of the NF-κB signaling pathway, was identified to be highly upregulated in CRC tumors and cell lines. Furthermore, the downregulation of MALT1 or inhibition of its proteolytic function by MI-2 suppressed the cell proliferation and migration of CRC cells. Read More
