Isolated Primary Sinonasal Adenocarcinoma of the Sphenoid Sinus.

Cureus 2021 Mar 26;13(3):e14127. Epub 2021 Mar 26.

Division of Neurological Surgery, University of Missouri School of Medicine, Columbia, USA.

Isolated lesions of the sphenoid sinus, particularly malignancies, are rarely reported and exist largely within the Otolaryngology literature. Delayed diagnosis may necessitate neurosurgical involvement; therefore, neurosurgeons must be aware of the range of pathologies in this region in order to provide adequate treatment. We present an unusual case of an 89-year-old female with several weeks of worsening headaches, vision loss, and cranial neuropathies. Read More

constituent fargesin has an anti-allergic effect ORAI1 channel inhibition.

Korean J Physiol Pharmacol 2021 May;25(3):251-258

Department of Physiology, Dongguk University College of Medicine, Gyeongju 38066, Korea.

magnoliae (FM), the dry flower buds of or its related species, is a traditional herbal medicine commonly used in Asia for symptomatic relief of and treating allergic rhinitis, headache, and sinusitis. Although several studies have reported the effects of FM on store-operated calcium entry (SOCE) the ORAI1 channel, which is essential during intracellular calcium signaling cascade generation for T cell activation and mast cell degranulation, the effects of its isolated constituents on SOCE remain unidentified. Therefore, we investigated which of the five major constituents of 30% ethanoic FM (vanillic acid, tiliroside, eudesmin, magnolin, and fargesin) inhibit SOCE and their physiological effects on immune cells.
