Intraductal Carcinoma of the Salivary Gland with NCOA4-RET: Expanding the Morphologic Spectrum and an Algorithmic Diagnostic Approach.

Hum Pathol 2021 May 12. Epub 2021 May 12.

Department of Pathology, Massachusetts General Hospital; Department of Otolaryngology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear; Department of Pathology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA. Electronic address:

Following the publication of the 2017 WHO Classification of Head and Neck Tumours, there has been increasing interest in the classification of newly categorized intraductal carcinomas. Intraductal carcinoma (IC) is an indolent tumor, typically arising in the parotid gland, with an intact myoepithelial layer and a cystic, papillary, often cribriform architecture. Early studies of IC identified a heterogeneous group of molecular alterations driving neoplasia, and recent studies have defined three primary morphological/immunohistochemical variants, subsequently linking these morphologic variants with defined molecular signatures.

LMW cyclin E and its novel catalytic partner CDK5 are therapeutic targets and prognostic biomarkers in salivary gland cancers.

Oncogenesis 2021 May 14;10(5):40. Epub 2021 May 14.

Departments of Experimental Radiation Oncology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, USA.

Salivary gland cancers (SGCs) are rare yet aggressive malignancies with significant histological heterogeneity, which has made prediction of prognosis and development of targeted therapies challenging. In majority of patients, local recurrence and/or distant metastasis are common and systemic treatments have minimal impact on survival. Therefore, identification of novel targets for treatment that can also be used as predictors of recurrence for multiple histological subtypes of SGCs is an area of unmet need. Read More

Unusual Case of a Caruncular Oncocytoma.

Am J Dermatopathol 2021 May 11. Epub 2021 May 11.

Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, Roanoke, VA; Dermatology Section, Department of Internal Medicine, Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, Roanoke, VA; Department of Basic Science Education, Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, Roanoke, VA; and Oculofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Vistar Eye Center, Roanoke, VA.

Abstract: Oncocytomas are benign neoplasms that are most often found in the salivary glands and kidneys. Ocular oncocytoma typically present as an asymptomatic dark blue papule on the lacrimal caruncle. Histologically, the tumor is composed of oncocytes, cells notable for eosinophilic cytoplasmic granules representing large quantities of dysfunctional mitochondria. Read More

Tick-human interactions: from allergic klendusity to the α-Gal syndrome.

Biochem J 2021 May;478(9):1783-1794

SaBio, Instituto de Investigación de Recursos Cinegéticos, IREC-CSIC-UCLM-JCCM, Ronda de Toledo s/n, 13005 Ciudad Real, Spain.

Ticks and the pathogens they transmit, including bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and helminths, constitute a growing burden for human and animal health worldwide. The ability of some animal species to acquire resistance to blood-feeding by ticks after a single or repeated infestation is known as acquired tick resistance (ATR). This resistance has been associated to tick-specific IgE response, the generation of skin-resident memory CD4+ T cells, basophil recruitment, histamine release, and epidermal hyperplasia. Read More

Oncocytic Polyp in a Unicystic Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma of the Palate: A Unique Presentation.

Int J Surg Pathol 2021 May 14:10668969211018266. Epub 2021 May 14.

13123Tsurumi University Dental Hospital, Yokohama, Japan.

We report a palatal mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC) with unusual pathological features showing salivary duct cyst-like architecture, varied epithelial linings (excretory duct, mucous goblet cell, and apocrine epithelium phenotypes), scarce luminal tumor plaques, and a large intraluminal oncocytic polyp. To our knowledge, such a unicystic variant of MEC with pedicled oncocytic proliferation in the lumen is unprecedented in the literature. In this particular case, the microscopic diagnosis of MEC is problematic because of the large number of potential mimics. Read More

The prevalence of mental health problems represents a significant burden on school and community health resources as early as preschool. Reducing this burden requires a better understanding of the developmental mechanisms linking children's early vulnerabilities with mental health after the transition to formal schooling. The 3D-Transition study (2017-2021; ClinicalTrials. Read More

Amylases: Biofilm Inducer or Biofilm Inhibitor?

Front Cell Infect Microbiol 2021 27;11:660048. Epub 2021 Apr 27.

Department of Biotechnology, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology, Haringhata, India.

Biofilm is a syntrophic association of sessile groups of microbial cells that adhere to biotic and abiotic surfaces with the help of pili and extracellular polymeric substances (EPS). EPSs also prevent penetration of antimicrobials/antibiotics into the sessile groups of cells. Hence, methods and agents to avoid or remove biofilms are urgently needed. Read More

MRI-Based Radiomics to Differentiate between Benign and Malignant Parotid Tumors With External Validation.

Front Oncol 2021 27;11:656918. Epub 2021 Apr 27.

Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging Department, IRCCS Regina Elena National Cancer Institute, Rome, Italy.

Background: The differentiation between benign and malignant parotid lesions is crucial to defining the treatment plan, which highly depends on the tumor histology. We aimed to evaluate the role of MRI-based radiomics using both T2-weighted (T2-w) images and Apparent Diffusion Coefficient (ADC) maps in the differentiation of parotid lesions, in order to develop predictive models with an external validation cohort.

Materials And Methods: A sample of 69 untreated parotid lesions was evaluated retrospectively, including 37 benign (of which 13 were Warthin's tumors) and 32 malignant tumors. Read More
