Lipid metabolism in cancer: New perspectives and emerging mechanisms.

Dev Cell 2021 May 3. Epub 2021 May 3.

Laboratory of Cellular Metabolism and Metabolic Regulation, VIB-KU Leuven Center for Cancer Biology, VIB, Leuven, Belgium; Laboratory of Cellular Metabolism and Metabolic Regulation, Department of Oncology, KU Leuven and Leuven Cancer Institute (LKI), Leuven, Belgium. Electronic address:

Tumors undergo metabolic transformations to sustain uncontrolled proliferation, avoid cell death, and seed in secondary organs. An increased focus on cancer lipid metabolism has unveiled a number of mechanisms that promote tumor growth and survival, many of which are independent of classical cellular bioenergetics. These mechanisms include modulation of ferroptotic-mediated cell death, support during tumor metastasis, and interactions with the cells of the tumor microenvironment. Read More

Working through centred on the body in the analysis of a psychotic adolescent.

Pierrette Poyet

Int J Psychoanal 2019 Jun;100(3):463-480

Former member of CFRP (Centre de Formation et de Recherche Psychanalytiques); former member of SPF (Société de Psychanalyse Freudienne) PARIS.

Through a few clinical sessions, the author demonstrates the complexity of psychoanalytic work with difficult adolescents, while also indicating its benefits when this approach is enhanced by working on the body-mind connection. The author shows how she establishes contact with a difficult adolescent patient who is experiencing immense fear and intense hatred of her body and how this patient then communicates through her body intense anxieties relating to body-mind dissociation. The bodily transference is central to this work. Read More

A toddler diagnosed with severe postinfectious bronchiolitis obliterans and COVID-19 infection.

Pediatr Pulmonol 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

Aghia Sophia Children's Hospital, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, management of SARS-CoV-2 infection in children with underlying chronic lung disease has been challenging. There are limited studies in children with respiratory comorbidities, apart from asthma, presumably due to low morbidity of SARS-CoV-2 infection in the general pediatric population along with the low incidence of certain pulmonary conditions. Compassionate use of remdesivir has been shown to reduce time to clinical improvement in adults and has been retrospectively studied in small pediatric cohorts with promising results. Read More

Blood 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

University Hospital Brno, Czech Republic.

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients with TP53 mutations experience chemo-refractory disease and are therefore indicated for targeted therapy. However, the significance of low-burden TP53 mutations with <10% variant allele frequency (VAF) remains a matter of debate. Here we describe clonal evolution scenarios of low-burden TP53 mutations and analyzed their clinical impact in a "real-world" CLL cohort. Read More
