Adoptive Transfer of NKG2D CAR mRNA-Engineered Natural Killer Cells in Colorectal Cancer Patients.

Mol Ther 2019 Mar 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Department of Gastrointestinal Surgery, The Third Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University, Guangzhou, Guangdong 510150, China. Electronic address:

By fusing the extracellular domain of the natural killer (NK) cell receptor NKG2D to DAP12, we constructed a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) to improve NK cell tumor responses. An RNA electroporation approach that provides transient expression of the CAR was adopted as a risk mitigation strategy. Expression of the NKG2D RNA CAR significantly augmented the cytolytic activity of NK cells against several solid tumor cell lines in vitro and provided a clear therapeutic benefit to mice with established solid tumors.

The Role of US Contrast Agents in US-Guided Biopsy of Focal Liver Lesions: A Pictorial Review.

Ultrasound Int Open 2019 Jan 23;5(1):E11-E19. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Ultrasound Section, Division of Surgery, Dep of Gastroenterology, Herlev Hospital, Copenhagen Academy for Medical Education and Simulation University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

US-guided percutaneous biopsy of focal liver lesions (FLL) is a classic interventional procedure performed by almost all radiology units. Typically, an incidental focal finding on US or a focal indeterminate lesion diagnosed on CT, MRI or PET/CT is referred for US-guided biopsy for final diagnosis. The introduction of microbubble US contrast agents has overcome some of the limitations of standard US in diagnosing FLLs by displaying the microvasculature together with the US morphology, which has increased both the sensitivity and the specificity.

Percutaneous Hepatic Perfusion With Filtered Melphalan for Localized Treatment of Metastatic Hepatic Disease: A Risk Assessment.

Int J Toxicol 2018 Nov 19:1091581818811306. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

4 Aclairo Pharmaceutical Development Group Inc, Vienna, VA, USA.

Regional therapies for metastatic liver disease have garnered interest in recent years due to technological advances in drug delivery. A percutaneous hepatic perfusion (PHP) using a newly developed generation 2 (GEN2) filtration system was designed to mitigate systemic toxicity and cardiovascular risk associated with hepatic blood filtration during hepatic artery infusion of the chemotherapy drug melphalan. The GEN2 system was evaluated in healthy swine, and plasma samples were assessed for clinical chemistry, melphalan toxicokinetics (TK), inflammatory cytokines, catecholamines, hematological, and cardiac biomarkers.

Efficacy and safety of EUS-guided liver biopsy: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Gastrointest Endosc 2019 02 31;89(2):238-246.e3. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, University of Utah School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.

Background And Aims: EUS-guided liver biopsy (LB) is an emerging technique over conventional percutaneous (PC) or transjugular (TJ) approaches. Recent studies have reported that EUS-guided LB may have a better safety profile than PC LB or TJ LB without compromising diagnostic yield, and the outcomes are varied with respect to the types of biopsy needles. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to estimate the diagnostic yield, specimen adequacy, and adverse events associated with EUS-guided LB. Read More

Recurrent biliary dissemination of colon cancer liver metastasis: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2018 Oct 27;12(1):314. Epub 2018 Oct 27.

Department of Medical Laboratory, National Hospital Organization Kanazawa Medical Center, 1-1 Shimoishibiki, Kanazawa, 920-8650, Japan.

Background: Most colorectal cancer liver metastases form nodules within the hepatic parenchyma, and hepatectomy is the only radical treatment for synchronous metastases. There is concern about intrabiliary tumor growth which may affect the surgical margin, resulting in local recurrence after hepatectomy for colorectal cancer liver metastasis; however, there has been no report of the dissemination in the bile duct after hepatectomy. Here, we report an unusual case of biliary dissemination of colorectal cancer that caused recurrent intrabiliary growth after hepatectomy, and discuss the management of intrabiliary metastasis of colorectal cancer.
