BMJ Case Rep 2020 Dec 9;13(12). Epub 2020 Dec 9.

Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA.

For patients whose vasculitis is managed with biologic medications, no reports or evidence-based guidance exists regarding the perioperative management of microvascular flaps. We present a case of a 78-year-old patient with Takayasu's arteritis (TA) and diabetes mellitus who was taking infliximab and underwent wide local excision of squamous cell carcinoma, craniectomy and reconstruction with a latissimus dorsi flap.

Resveratrol inhibits skin squamous cell carcinoma proliferation, migration and invasion through up-regulating miR-126.

Cell Mol Biol (Noisy-le-grand) 2020 Jul 31;66(5):142-147. Epub 2020 Jul 31.

Pharmaceutical Sciences and Cosmetic Products Research Center, Kerman University of Medical Sciences, Kerman, Iran.

The current experiment was performed to explore the effect and possible mechanism of resveratrol on the proliferation, migration and invasion of skin squamous cell carcinoma cells (HSC-5). Tetramethyl azozo blue (MTT) method, Transwell experiment and real-time fluorescence quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) were used to detect the effects of resveratrol intervention on the proliferation, migration and invasion of HSC-5 cells and the expression of miR-126. The miR-126 mimics and inhibitors were transfected into HSC-5 cells, and the effects of up-regulation or down-regulation of HSC-5 expression on the proliferation, migration and invasion of HSC-5 cells were detected.

Minerva Med 2020 Dec 21;111(6):589-600. Epub 2020 Sep 21.

Dermatology Unit, Luigi Vanvitelli University of Campania, Naples, Italy -

Despite the overall excellent survival rates in patients affected by early cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC), advanced forms of CSCC are associated with high patient mortality. To date, only limited therapeutic modalities have been implemented, including chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Systemic therapy was enriched by the addition of epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitors (EGFRi) in the last years. Read More

Introduction: Diagnosis of malignant cutaneous tumours of the hand is often difficult because of the different anatomic structures present in this region and yet clinicians must be able to distinguish typical benign entities from life-threatening or limb-threatening malignant diseases. Due to the hand's complex structures located in a small area, surgeons must evaluate constantly the balance of inadequate surgery against functional and cosmetic aspects. Thus, a multidisciplinary approach is recommended for a correct diagnosis and treatment design. Read More
