Cetacean epidermal specialization: A review.

Anat Histol Embryol 2022 Jun 27. Epub 2022 Jun 27.

Department of Dermatology, University of California, San Francisco and Veterans Affairs Health Care System, San Francisco, California, USA.

Cetacean skin continues to be the investigative focus of researchers from several different scientific disciplines. Yet, most research on the basic functions of lipo-keratinocytes, which constitute most of the cetacean epidermis, providing the first layer of protection against various environmental aggressors (including an ever-increasing level of pollutants), is restricted to specialized literature on the permeability barrier only. In this review, we have attempted to bring together much of the recent research on the functional biology of cetacean skin, including special adaptations at the cellular, genetic and molecular level.

Comprehensive phenotyping of cutaneous afferents reveals early-onset alterations in nociceptor response properties, release of CGRP, and hindpaw edema following spinal cord injury.

Neurobiol Pain 2022 Aug-Dec;12:100097. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, KS, United States.

Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a complex syndrome that has profound effects on patient well-being, including the development of medically-resistant chronic pain. The mechanisms underlying SCI pain have been the subject of thorough investigation but remain poorly understood. While the majority of the research has focused on changes occurring within and surrounding the site of injury in the spinal cord, there is now a consensus that alterations within the peripheral nervous system, namely sensitization of nociceptors, contribute to the development and maintenance of chronic SCI pain.

Melatonin as an adjuvant treatment modality with doxorubicin.

Biochimie 2022 Jun 22. Epub 2022 Jun 22.

Research Center for Biochemistry and Nutrition in Metabolic Diseases, Institute for Basic Sciences, Kashan University of Medical Sciences, Kashan, I.R. Iran. Electronic address:

Combination chemotherapy seems to be a beneficial choice for some cancer patients particularly when the drugs target different processes of oncogenesis; patients treated with combination therapies sometimes have a better prognosis than those treated with single drug chemotherapy. However, research has shown that this is not always the case, and this approach may only increase toxicity without having a significant effect in augmenting the antitumor actions of the drugs. Doxorubicin (Dox) is one of the most common chemotherapy drugs used to treat many types of cancer, but it also has serious side effects, such as cardiotoxicity, skin necrosis, testicular toxicity, and nephrotoxicity.

Lip Lift.

Angela Sturm

Otolaryngol Clin North Am 2022 Jun 21. Epub 2022 Jun 21.

Private Practice; Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, TX, USA. Electronic address:

The perioral area can be an important feature to convey femininity, particularly when speaking and smiling. A feminine lip has a shorter distance between the nasal sill and the vermillion border, fullness of the vermillion, and a few millimeters of tooth show with the mouth slightly open. The keys to a good outcome are incision design that respects the natural anatomy, placing the tension of the lift deep to the dermis to take tension off of the skin incision, determining the appropriate amount of lift for the patient's anatomy, and not violating the orbicularis oris.

Fibrillin-1 mutant mouse captures defining features of human primary open glaucoma including anomalous aqueous humor TGF beta-2.

Sci Rep 2022 Jun 23;12(1):10623. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Doheny Eye Institute, Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) features an optic neuropathy, elevated aqueous humor (AH) TGFβ2, and major risk factors of central corneal thickness (CCT), increasing age and intraocular pressure (IOP). We examined Tight skin (Tsk) mice to see if mutation of fibrillin-1, a repository for latent TGFβ, is associated with characteristics of human POAG. We measured: CCT by ocular coherence tomography (OCT); IOP; retinal ganglion cell (RGC) and optic nerve axon counts by microscopic techniques; visual electrophysiologic scotopic threshold responses (STR) and pattern electroretinogram (PERG); and AH TGFβ2 levels and activity by ELISA and MINK epithelial cell-based assays respectively.

Non-invasively Imageable Tibia-tumor-fragment Implantation Experimental-bone-metastasis Mouse Model of GFP-expressing Prostate Cancer.

In Vivo 2022 Jul-Aug;36(4):1647-1650

AntiCancer Inc, San Diego, CA, U.S.A.;

Background/aim: Although the 5-year survival rate for localized prostate cancer is nearly 100%, prognosis for patients with metastases, of which the bone is the most common site, is poor. In order to evaluate efficacy of treatments against metastatic prostate cancer, experimental tibia-bone-metastasis mouse models of prostate cancer have been previously established. In the present study, we used a novel procedure for establishment of an experimental tibiabone metastasis mouse model, with human PC-3 prostate cancer expressing green fluorescent protein (GFP), that more closely matches prostate cancer growing in the bone.

Ned Tijdschr Geneeskd 2022 May 31;166. Epub 2022 May 31.

Maastricht UMC+, afd. Dermatologie, Maastricht.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common cancer type in the Netherlands and frequently diagnosed in older adults. Unlike other common forms of skin cancer (squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma), BCC generally grows slowly and the risk of metastasis and/or death is extremely small. In the first years after presentation, BCC often causes no or only minor complaints. Read More

TRK Inhibition with Entrectinib in Metastatic Salivary Secretory Carcinoma (SC): A Case Report.

Curr Oncol 2022 May 31;29(6):3933-3939. Epub 2022 May 31.

Tom Baker Cancer Center, Department of Oncology, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB T2N 4N2, Canada.

NTRK gene fusions are rare oncogenic driver mutations that can be found in a broad range of neoplasms. In secretory carcinoma (SC), gene fusion is seen in a majority of the cases and represents a druggable target for patients with advanced disease in the absence of a currently accepted standard of care. In our case, we describe a patient with recurrent, metastatic SC treated with first line entrectinib with clinically meaningful, durable ongoing response after 49 months. Read More
