Mild Parkinsonian Signs: A Systematic Review of Clinical, Imaging, and Pathological Associations.

Mov Disord 2021 Sep 25. Epub 2021 Sep 25.

Department of Clinical Neurosciences, UCL Institute of Neurology University College London, London, United Kingdom.

Mild parkinsonian signs (MPS) have been widely studied during the past 3 decades and proposed as a risk marker for neurodegenerative disease. This systematic review explores the epidemiology, clinical and prognostic associations, radiological features, and pathological findings associated with MPS in older adults free from neurodegenerative disease. We find that MPS as currently defined are strongly associated with increasing age and increased risk of development of Parkinson's disease (PD), all-cause dementia, disability, and death. Read More

Cardiovasc Diabetol 2021 Sep 24;20(1):192. Epub 2021 Sep 24.

Department of Experimental, Diagnostic and Specialty Medicine-DIMES, IRCCS Policlinico S. Orsola - Malpighi, University of Bologna, Via Giuseppe Massarenti 9, 40138, Bologna, Italy.

Background: The prognostic role of hyperglycemia in patients with myocardial infarction and obstructive coronary arteries (MIOCA) is acknowledged, while data on non-obstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA) are still lacking. Recently, we demonstrated that admission stress-hyperglycemia (aHGL) was associated with a larger infarct size and inflammatory response in MIOCA, while no differences were observed in MINOCA. We aim to investigate the impact of aHGL on short and long-term outcomes in MIOCA and MINOCA patients. Read More

Cancer driver gene and non-coding RNA alterations as biomarkers of brain metastasis in lung cancer: A review of the literature.

Biomed Pharmacother 2021 Sep 21;143:112190. Epub 2021 Sep 21.

Zimagene Medical Genetics Laboratory, Avicenna St., Hamedan, Iran. Electronic address:

Brain metastasis (BM) is the most common event in patients with lung cancer. Despite multimodal treatments and advances in systemic therapies, development of BM remains one of the main factors associated with poor prognosis and mortality in patients with lung cancer. Therefore, better understanding of mechanisms involved in lung cancer brain metastasis (LCBM) is of great importance to suppress cancer cells and to improve the overall survival of patients.

Dynamic changes in human single-cell transcriptional signatures during fatal sepsis.

J Leukoc Biol 2021 Sep 24. Epub 2021 Sep 24.

Division of Biomedical Sciences, School of Medicine, University of California Riverside, Riverside, California, USA.

Systemic infections, especially in patients with chronic diseases, may result in sepsis: an explosive, uncoordinated immune response that can lead to multisystem organ failure with a high mortality rate. Patients with similar clinical phenotypes or sepsis biomarker expression upon diagnosis may have different outcomes, suggesting that the dynamics of sepsis is critical in disease progression. A within-subject study of patients with Gram-negative bacterial sepsis with surviving and fatal outcomes was designed and single-cell transcriptomic analyses of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) collected during the critical period between sepsis diagnosis and 6 h were performed.

Controversial roles of cold‑inducible RNA‑binding protein in human cancer (Review).

Int J Oncol 2021 Nov 24;59(5). Epub 2021 Sep 24.

Department of Health Sciences and Technology, Gachon Advanced Institute for Health Sciences and Technology, Gachon University, Incheon 21999, Republic of Korea.

Cold‑inducible RNA‑binding protein (CIRBP) is a cold‑shock protein comprised of an RNA‑binding motif that is induced by several stressors, such as cold shock, UV radiation, nutrient deprivation, reactive oxygen species and hypoxia. CIRBP can modulate post‑transcriptional regulation of target mRNA, which is required to control DNA repair, circadian rhythms, cell growth, telomere integrity and cardiac physiology. In addition, the crucial function of CIRBP in various human diseases, including cancers and inflammatory disease, has been reported. Read More

Antimicrobial Protein REG3A and Signaling Networks are Predictive of Stroke Outcomes.

J Neurochem 2021 Sep 24. Epub 2021 Sep 24.

Department of Neurology, University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky, USA.

Regenerating Family Member 3 Alpha (REG3A) is a multifunctional protein with antimicrobial activity, and primarily secreted by the intestine and pancreas. Studies have shown an increased expression of REG3A in systemic inflammatory responses to acute injury and infection, but studies investigating REG3A during the pathogenesis of ischemic stroke are limited. The aims of this study were to examine the associations between arterial expression of REG3A and other arterial inflammatory proteins implicated in stroke pathogenesis, as well as associations between REG3A and markers of poor outcome for ischemic stroke.

Front Oncol 2021 7;11:744250. Epub 2021 Sep 7.

Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH, United States.

Purpose: There is a lack of biomarkers for accurately prognosticating outcome in both human papillomavirus-related (HPV+) and tobacco- and alcohol-related (HPV-) oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC). The aims of this study were to i) develop and evaluate radiomic features within (intratumoral) and around tumor (peritumoral) on CT scans to predict HPV status; ii) investigate the prognostic value of the radiomic features for both HPV- and HPV+ patients, including within individual AJCC eighth edition-defined stage groups; and iii) develop and evaluate a clinicopathologic imaging nomogram involving radiomic, clinical, and pathologic factors for disease-free survival (DFS) prediction for HPV+ patients.

Experimental Design: This retrospective study included 582 OPSCC patients, of which 462 were obtained from The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) with available tumor segmentation and 120 were from Cleveland Clinic Foundation (CCF, denoted as S) with HPV+ OPSCC. Read More
