Inflammation and Inflammatory Diseases Research Center, Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, Iran. Electronic address:

Human T lymphotropic virus (HTLV-I) is a retrovirus that has been recognized as a causative agent of two crucidal diseases, HTLV-I-Associated Myelopathy/Tropical Spastic Paraparesis (HAM/TSP) and Adult T cell Leukemia-Lymphoma (ATLL). The virus not only induces those diseases in a small proportion of HTLV-I carriers (3-5%) but also it is associated with other diseases such as HTLV-I-Associated Arthropathy (HAAP), Cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma (CTCL), Graves' disease, uveitis, polymyositis, chronic respiratory diseases, lymphadenitis and dermatitis. Furthermore, HTLV related and accelerated disorders were more investigated, and the factors that might implicate in the development or progression of diseases have been discussed. Read More

The Cost and Financial Burden of Thyroid Cancer on Patients in the US: A Review and Directions for Future Research.

JAMA Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2022 Jun;148(6):568-575

Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.

Importance: In the US, thyroid cancer has been identified as a cancer type with a high degree of associated financial burden on patients, and survivors of thyroid cancer report higher rates of bankruptcy than those of other cancer types. However, the available literature on the financial burden of thyroid cancer has not yet been described.

Observations: Estimates of the out-of-pocket costs of initial thyroid cancer diagnosis and treatment range widely ($1425-$17 000) and are influenced by age, surgical treatment type, and health insurance coverage. Read More

Unexpected Rare Association of Secondary Breast, Thyroid, and Ovarian Lymphomas in a Female Patient with Burkitt Lymphoma: PET-CT Findings.

World J Nucl Med 2022 Mar 30;21(1):80-82. Epub 2022 Apr 30.

Military Teaching Hospital, Rabat, Morocco.

We report the case of a 15-year-old female, followed for Burkitt lymphoma with initial ovarian presentation. Positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) with F-fluorodeoxyglucose ( F-FDG) performed to evaluate initial extension assessment showed an unexpected association with secondary breast, thyroid, and ovarian lymphomas. To our knowledge, this association is very rare, unusual, and these extranodal presentations have been reported in literature as a separate case report. Read More

Effects of immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy resumption in patients with malignant tumors after moderate-to-severe immune-related adverse events.

PLoS One 2022 28;17(4):e0267572. Epub 2022 Apr 28.

Department of Digestive and Lifestyle Diseases, Kagoshima University Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Kagoshima, Japan.

Background And Aims: Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) are used to treat several cancers, but they sometimes induce immune-related adverse events (irAEs). Patients with irAEs often have improved antitumor responses, but discontinuation of ICIs after irAEs is considered necessary. Resuming the use of ICIs after irAEs is preferable, but few studies have investigated the safety of ICI resumption after irAEs. Read More
