Isolation and Characterization of Human Adipocyte-Derived Extracellular Vesicles using Filtration and Ultracentrifugation.

J Vis Exp 2021 Apr 19(170). Epub 2021 Apr 19.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Radcliffe Department of Medicine, University of Oxford.

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are lipid enclosed envelopes that carry biologically active material such as proteins, RNA, metabolites and lipids. EVs can modulate the cellular status of other cells locally in tissue microenvironments or through liberation into peripheral blood. Adipocyte-derived EVs are elevated in the peripheral blood and show alterations in their cargo (RNA and protein) during metabolic disturbances, including obesity and diabetes. Read More

Tocilizumab in patients admitted to hospital with COVID-19 (RECOVERY): a randomised, controlled, open-label, platform trial.


Lancet 2021 May;397(10285):1637-1645

Background: In this study, we aimed to evaluate the effects of tocilizumab in adult patients admitted to hospital with COVID-19 with both hypoxia and systemic inflammation.

Methods: This randomised, controlled, open-label, platform trial (Randomised Evaluation of COVID-19 Therapy [RECOVERY]), is assessing several possible treatments in patients hospitalised with COVID-19 in the UK. Those trial participants with hypoxia (oxygen saturation <92% on air or requiring oxygen therapy) and evidence of systemic inflammation (C-reactive protein ≥75 mg/L) were eligible for random assignment in a 1:1 ratio to usual standard of care alone versus usual standard of care plus tocilizumab at a dose of 400 mg-800 mg (depending on weight) given intravenously.

J Pharmacol Exp Ther 2021 Apr 30. Epub 2021 Apr 30.

Gavin Herbert Eye Institute, Dept. of Ophthalmology, University of California, Irvine, United States

CB-5083 is an inhibitor of p97/valosin-containing protein (VCP), for which Phase I trials for cancer were terminated due to adverse effects on vision, such as photophobia and dyschromatopsia. Lower dose CB-5083 could combat inclusion body myopathy with early-onset Paget disease; and frontotemporal dementia or multisystem proteinopathy, caused by gain-of-function mutations in VCP. We hypothesized that the visual impairment in the cancer trial was due to CB-5083's inhibition of phosphodiesterase-6 (PDE6), which mediates signal transduction in photoreceptors. Read More

Anogenital syringocystadenocarcinoma papilliferum in situ or anaplastic extramammary Paget disease? A unifying concept and review of the literature.

J Cutan Pathol 2021 Apr 24. Epub 2021 Apr 24.

Department of Pathology, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus, Ohio, USA.

Extramammary Paget disease (EMPD) is a rare cutaneous malignancy that typically involves the genital skin and can be primary or associated with an underlying internal malignancy. The typical histopathological appearance of EMPD consists of single or small aggregates of cells with abundant pale cytoplasm and large pleomorphic nuclei, known as Paget cells, scattered throughout the epidermis. We report a case of anogenital EMPD occurring in a 53-year-old man with unusual histopathologic findings of marked epidermal acanthosis, acantholysis, intraepidermal glandular differentiation, and prominent plasma cell-rich fibrovascular cores.

Recommendations for respiratory syncytial virus surveillance at national level.

Eur Respir J 2021 Apr 22. Epub 2021 Apr 22.

Statens Serum Institut, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a common cause of acute lower respiratory tract infections (ALRI) and hospitalisations among young children and is globally responsible for many deaths in young children, especially in infants below 6 months of age. Furthermore, RSV is a common cause of severe respiratory disease and hospitalisation among the elderly. The development of new candidate vaccines and monoclonal antibodies highlights the need for reliable surveillance of RSV. Read More

High-Frequency Ultrasound for Evaluation of the Pathological Invasion Level of Extramammary Paget Disease.

J Ultrasound Med 2021 Apr 15. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Department of Medical Ultrasound, Shanghai Skin Disease Hospital, Ultrasound Research and Education Institute, Tongji University School of Medicine, Shanghai, China.

Objectives: Pathological invasion level of extramammary Paget disease (EMPD) is strongly related with its risk staging, treatment, and prognosis. However, the current evaluation before treatments fails to evaluate pathological invasion level of EMPD. High-frequency ultrasound (HFUS) may play a key role to solve this problem. Read More

Tumor Microenvironment Proteomics: Lessons From Multiple Myeloma.

Front Oncol 2021 23;11:563384. Epub 2021 Mar 23.

Department of Experimental and Clinical Oncology, Discipline of Hematology and Hemotherapy, Federal University of São Paulo, UNIFESP, São Paulo, Brazil.

Although the "seed and soil" hypothesis was proposed by Stephen Paget at the end of the 19th century, where he postulated that tumor cells (seeds) need a propitious medium (soil) to be able to establish metastases, only recently the tumor microenvironment started to be more studied in the field of Oncology. Multiple myeloma (MM), a malignancy of plasma cells, can be considered one of the types of cancers where there is more evidence in the literature of the central role that the bone marrow (BM) microenvironment plays, contributing to proliferation, survival, migration, and drug resistance of tumor cells. Despite all advances in the therapeutic arsenal for MM treatment in the last years, the disease remains incurable. Read More

New advances in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis genetics: Towards gene therapy opportunities for familial and young cases.

Rev Neurol (Paris) 2021 Mar 30. Epub 2021 Mar 30.

Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière, ICM, Inserm U1127, CNRS UMR7225, Sorbonne Université, UPMC Univ Paris 6 UMRS1127, 75013 Paris, France. Electronic address:

Due to novel gene therapy opportunities, genetic screening is no longer restricted to familial cases of ALS (FALS) cases but also aplies to the sporadic populations (SALS). Screening of four main genes (C9orf72, SOD1, TARDBP and FUS) identified the causes in 15% of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) patients (two third of the familial cases and 8% of the sporadic ones) but their respective contribution to ALS phenotype varies according the age of disease onset. The genetic overlap between ALS and other diseases is expanding and includes frontotemporal dementia, Paget's Disease of Bone, myopathy for adult cases, HSP and CMT for young cases highlighing the importance of retrieving the exhaustive familial history for each indivdual with ALS.
