[Leeuwenhoek and his little animals].

Rev Chilena Infectol 2020 Dec;37(6):762-766

Instituto de Ciencias Biomédicas (ICBM), Facultad de Medicina, Universidad de Chile, Santiago, Chile.

Antoine van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723) was a Dutch cloth merchant and self-taught microscopist who is considered the father of Microbiology. His marvellous lenses and keen microscopic observations over nearly five decades made it possible for the first time to unravel the secrets of the microcosm. The main objective of this work is that the reader can directly access some of his famous letters addressed to the Royal Society of London, announcing the discovery of his famous little animals.

The Scoliosis Research Society adult spinal deformity standard outcome set.

Spine Deform 2021 Apr 6. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Norton Leatherman Spine Center, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY, USA.

Purpose: Symptomatic adult spinal deformity (ASD) with an extremely variable presentation with pain, with and without neurogenic leg pain, and/or disturbed sagittal and coronal balance, causes a significant societal burden of disease. It is an important consequence of the aging adult population, generating a plethora of spine-related interventions with variable treatment efficacy and consistently high costs. Recent years have witnessed more than a threefold increase in the prevalence and treatment of ASD, and further increases over the coming decades are expected with the growing elderly population worldwide.

The Inflammatory Profile of CTEPH-Derived Endothelial Cells Is a Possible Driver of Disease Progression.

Cells 2021 Mar 26;10(4). Epub 2021 Mar 26.

Department of Cell and Chemical Biology, Laboratory for CardioVascular Cell Biology, Leiden University Medical Center, 2300 RC Leiden, The Netherlands.

Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a form of pulmonary hypertension characterized by the presence of fibrotic intraluminal thrombi and causing obliteration of the pulmonary arteries. Although both endothelial cell (EC) dysfunction and inflammation are linked to CTEPH pathogenesis, regulation of the basal inflammatory response of ECs in CTEPH is not fully understood. Therefore, in the present study, we investigated the role of the nuclear factor (NF)-κB pro-inflammatory signaling pathway in ECs in CTEPH under basal conditions. Read More

Quantifying single-cell ERK dynamics in colorectal cancer organoids reveals EGFR as an amplifier of oncogenic MAPK pathway signalling.

Nat Cell Biol 2021 Apr 1;23(4):377-390. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Molecular Cancer Research, Center for Molecular Medicine, University Medical Center Utrecht, Utrecht University, Utrecht, Netherlands.

Direct targeting of the downstream mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway to suppress extracellular-regulated kinase (ERK) activation in KRAS and BRAF mutant colorectal cancer (CRC) has proven clinically unsuccessful, but promising results have been obtained with combination therapies including epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibition. To elucidate the interplay between EGF signalling and ERK activation in tumours, we used patient-derived organoids (PDOs) from KRAS and BRAF mutant CRCs. PDOs resemble in vivo tumours, model treatment response and are compatible with live-cell microscopy. Read More

Migraine: disease characterisation, biomarkers, and precision medicine.

Lancet 2021 Mar 25. Epub 2021 Mar 25.

Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King's College London, UK.

Migraine is a disabling neurological disorder, diagnosis of which is based on clinical criteria. A shortcoming of these criteria is that they do not fully capture the heterogeneity of migraine, including the underlying genetic and neurobiological factors. This complexity has generated momentum for biomarker research to improve disease characterisation and identify novel drug targets. Read More

Long-term and large-scale multispecies dataset tracking population changes of common European breeding birds.

Sci Data 2021 03 26;8(1):21. Epub 2021 Mar 26.

Czech Society for Ornithology, Prague, Czechia.

Around fifteen thousand fieldworkers annually count breeding birds using standardized protocols in 28 European countries.

A competing risk joint model for dealing with different types of missing data in an intervention trial in prodromal Alzheimer's disease.

Alzheimers Res Ther 2021 03 22;13(1):63. Epub 2021 Mar 22.

Department of Biostatistics, Erasmus Medical Center, PO Box 2040, 3000, Rotterdam, CA, the Netherlands.

Background: Missing data can complicate the interpretability of a clinical trial, especially if the proportion is substantial and if there are different, potentially outcome-dependent causes.

Methods: We aimed to obtain unbiased estimates, in the presence of a high level of missing data, for the intervention effects in a prodromal Alzheimer's disease trial: the LipiDiDiet study. We used a competing risk joint model that can simultaneously model each patient's longitudinal outcome trajectory in combination with the timing and type of missingness. Read More

Bifunctional protein PCBD2 operates as a co-factor for hepatocyte nuclear factor 1β and modulates gene transcription.

FASEB J 2021 Apr;35(4):e21366

Department of Physiology, Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences, Radboud University Medical Center, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Hepatocyte nuclear factor 1β (HNF1β) is an essential transcription factor in development of the kidney, liver, and pancreas. HNF1β-mediated transcription of target genes is dependent on the cell type and the development stage. Nevertheless, the regulation of HNF1β function by enhancers and co-factors that allow this cell-specific transcription is largely unknown. Read More
