Combined effect of microplastics and global warming factors on early growth and development of the sea urchin (Paracentrotus lividus).

Sci Total Environ 2021 Apr 1;782:146888. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Centro Oceanográfico de Vigo, Instituto Español de Oceanografía, IEO, Subida a Radio Faro, 50, 36390 Vigo, Pontevedra, Spain.

The aim of this work was to estimate the potential risk of the combined effect of global change factors (acidification, temperature increase) and microplastic (MP) pollution on the growth and development of the sea urchin P. lividus. Embryo-larval bioassays were conducted to determine growth and morphology after 48 h of incubation with MP (1000 and 3000 particles/mL); with filtered sea water at pH = 7. Read More

Palliation of malignant esophageal obstruction using an anti-migration self-expandable metal stent: results of a prospective multicenter study.

Clin Res Hepatol Gastroenterol 2021 Apr 10:101683. Epub 2021 Apr 10.

Department of Gastroenterology, General Hospital, Sanremo (IM), Italy.

Background: Self-expanding metal stents (SEMS) placement is primarily indicated to palliate dysphagia for patients with expected short-term survival. We aimed to assess the migration rate and other stent-related adverse events (AEs) of a fully covered SEMS with an anti-migration system (FCSEMS-AMS) for palliation of malignant dysphagia.

Methods: This is a prospective study including patients with inoperable esophageal cancer that received a FCSEMS-AMS (Taewoong, Niti-S Beta), in five tertiary-care endoscopic centers from January 2014 to February 2016. Read More

A pilot study on EORTC or PERCIST for the prediction of progression-free survival with nivolumab therapy in advanced or metastatic gastric cancers: A STROBE-compliant article.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2021 Apr;100(15):e25494

Department of Radiology, Kagoshima University, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, 8-35-1 Sakuragaoka, Kagoshima 890-8544.

Abstract: Recent breakthrough results from immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) have paved the way to a new era of cancer immunotherapy, and have thus led to a paradigm shift of cancer treatment. In particular, inhibition of the antiprogrammed death-1 (PD-1)/programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) axis with ICI, including nivolumab and pembrolizumab, has been emerging as a novel treatment strategy for advanced gastric cancers. An accurate noninvasive assessment of the response to ICI is important for the management of patients with advanced or metastatic gastric cancer. Read More

Lactobacillus plantarum HFY09 alleviates alcohol-induced gastric ulcers in mice via an anti-oxidative mechanism.

J Food Biochem 2021 Apr 13:e13726. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Chongqing Collaborative Innovation Center for Functional Food, Chongqing University of Education, Chongqing, China.

The protective effect of Lactobacillus plantarum HFY09 (LP-HFY09) on alcohol-induced gastric ulcers was investigated. Gastric morphology observation and pathological tissue sections showed that LP-HFY09 effectively relieved gastric tissue injury. The biochemical indicator detection showed that LP-HFY09 increased superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), glutathione (GSH), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), and somatostatin (SS) levels, and decreased malondialdehyde (MDA) levels.

Department of Comprehensive Pathology, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, 1-5-45 Yushima, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, 113-8519, Japan.

Worldwide, 5-10% of soft tissue sarcoma cases in adults have been attributed to synovial sarcoma. It is often reported to occur near the joints of the arm, neck, and leg but rarely in the gastrointestinal tract. In this study, we report a case of synovial sarcoma arising in the stomach of a 59-year-old woman. Read More

Splenectomy and distal pancreatectomy in advanced ovarian cancer.

Gland Surg 2021 Mar;10(3):1218-1229

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Splenectomy or distal pancreatectomy (DP) is sometimes performed for optimal cytoreduction in advanced ovarian cancer (AOC). In particular, it is considered to remove tumors involving the splenic hilum or the capsule of the spleen to secure tumor-free margins sufficiently. For splenectomy, the gastro-splenic ligament is opened, and the short gastric vessels are dissected. Read More
