Clinical Features and Multiplatform Molecular Analysis Assist in Understanding Patient Response to Anti-PD-1/PD-L1 in Renal Cell Carcinoma.

Cancers (Basel) 2021 Mar 23;13(6). Epub 2021 Mar 23.

Division of Hematology/Oncology, Department of Medicine, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, TN 37232, USA.

Predicting response to ICI therapy among patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has been uniquely challenging. We analyzed patient characteristics and clinical correlates from a retrospective single-site cohort of advanced RCC patients receiving anti-PD-1/PD-L1 monotherapy (N = 97), as well as molecular parameters in a subset of patients, including multiplexed immunofluorescence (mIF), whole exome sequencing (WES), T cell receptor (TCR) sequencing, and RNA sequencing (RNA-seq). Clinical factors such as the development of immune-related adverse events (odds ratio (OR) = 2. Read More

Elucidation of the Chemical Role of the Pyroclastic Materials on the State of Conservation of Mural Paintings from Pompeii.

Angew Chem Int Ed Engl 2021 Feb 3;60(6):3028-3036. Epub 2020 Dec 3.

Department of Analytical Chemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), P.O. Box 450, 01080, Vitoria-Gasteiz, Basque Country, Spain.

Pyroclastic strata have always been thought to protect the archaeological remains of the Vesuvian area (Italy), hence allowing their conservation throughout the centuries. In this work, we demonstrate that they constitute a potential threat for the conservation state of the mural paintings of Pompeii. The ions that could be leached from them and the ion-rich groundwater coming from the volcanic soil/rocks may contribute to salt crystallisation. Read More

Do prolonged fasting periods influence the postprandial metabolic responses in turtles? What can Trachemys scripta elegans teach us about this?

J Exp Zool A Ecol Integr Physiol 2020 11 30;333(9):644-651. Epub 2020 Sep 30.

Programa de Pós-Graduação em Ecologia e Evolução, Laboratório de Ecologia, Zoologia e Fisiologia Comparada, Instituto de Ciências Ambientais, Químicas e Farmacêuticas, Universidade Federal de São Paulo, campus Diadema, Diadema, São Paulo, Brazil.

The postprandial period is characterized by a modification of the gastrointestinal activity after food intake, accompanied by an increase in metabolic rate, secretion of acids, and absorption of nutrients. For ectothermic vertebrates, those changes are particularly prominent given the relatively low metabolic cost and the low frequency of food uptake. However, prolonged fasting periods decrease energy reserves and may compromise the upregulation of costly processes, such as the increase in metabolic rate after resuming the meal intake. Read More

Genomic and Functional Regulation of TRIB1 Contributes to Prostate Cancer Pathogenesis.

Cancers (Basel) 2020 Sep 11;12(9). Epub 2020 Sep 11.

Center for Cooperative Research in Biosciences (CIC bioGUNE), Basque Research and Technology Alliance (BRTA), Bizkaia Technology Park, Building 801A, 48160 Derio, Spain.

Prostate cancer is the most frequent malignancy in European men and the second worldwide. One of the major oncogenic events in this disease includes amplification of the transcription factor cMYC. Amplification of this oncogene in chromosome 8q24 occurs concomitantly with the copy number increase in a subset of neighboring genes and regulatory elements, but their contribution to disease pathogenesis is poorly understood.

Clinical implication of neointimal burden in in-stent restenosis treated with drug-coated balloon.

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 2020 Aug 27. Epub 2020 Aug 27.

Severance Cardiovascular Hospital, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, South Korea.

Background: Although drug-coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty is a well-established drug-eluting stent (DES) in-stent restenosis (ISR) strategy, there are minimal data regarding the association of neointimal burden on optical coherence tomography (OCT) before and after DCB and adverse clinical events. This study aimed to investigate the clinical impact of neointimal burden measured with OCT in patients with DES ISR after DCB angioplasty.

Methods: From 2010 through 2013, a total of 122 patients with 122 ISR lesions were treated with DCB, which was preceded and followed by OCT examination. Read More
