Sustained effect of two antioxidants (oxothiazolidine and δ-tocopheryl glucoside) for immediate and long-term sun protection in a sunscreen emulsion based on their different penetrating properties.

Int J Cosmet Sci 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Pierre Fabre Dermo-cosmétique, Centre R&D Pierre Fabre, Innovation et Développement Pharmacologie, Avenue Hubert Curien, Cedex 01, 31025, Toulouse, France.

Objective: We investigated the dermal bioavailability and antioxidative properties of a sunscreen formulation containing two antioxidants, oxothiazolidine (OTZ) and δ-tocopheryl glucoside (DTG). OTZ reacts directly with reactive oxygen species to form taurine, while DTG is metabolized in δ-tocopherol to achieve antioxidative activities.

Methods: After topical application to a hair follicle-derived reconstructed human epidermis (RHE) model, followed by solar-simulated radiation, kinetics of bioavailability and antioxidative responses were measured over 24 h. Read More

Thermal Ablation as an Alternative for Surgical Resection of Small (≤ 2 cm) Breast Cancers: A Meta-Analysis.

Clin Breast Cancer 2021 Mar 17. Epub 2021 Mar 17.

Department of Surgery, Franciscus Gasthuis & Vlietland, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Women with early-stage breast cancer have an excellent prognosis with current therapy, but could presumably be treated less invasively, without the need for surgery. The primary goal of this meta-analysis was to examine whether thermal ablation is an effective method to treat early-stage breast cancer. Studies reporting on complete ablation rate after thermal ablation as a treatment of small breast cancers (≤ 2 cm) were included. Read More

E3 ubiquitin ligase PJA1 regulates lung adenocarcinoma apoptosis and invasion through promoting FOXR2 degradation.

Biochem Biophys Res Commun 2021 Apr 8;556:106-113. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Department of Oncology, The People's Hospital of Jianyang, No.180 Hospital Road, Jianyang City, Sichuan Province, China.

Among all lung cancer cases, lung adenocarcinoma (LAC) represents nearly 40% and remains the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide. Although the combination therapy of surgical treatment with radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy, has been used to treat LAC, unfortunately, high recurrence rates and poor survival remain. Therefore, novel prognostic markers and new targets for molecular targeted therapy in LAC is urgently needed. Read More

Mol Divers 2021 Apr 8. Epub 2021 Apr 8.

Department of Chemistry, Sardar Patel University, Vallabh Vidyanagar, 388120, Gujarat, India.

An environment friendly, high yielding, promising one-pot protocol for the click reaction of N-propargyl-3-formylindole 2(a-b), chloroacetic acid/ester 3(a-b) and sodium azide, leading to the formation of 3-formyl-indole clubbed 1,4-disubstituted-1,2,3-triazole derivatives 4(a-b), 5(a-b) and 6(a-f) aided by CuI catalyst accomplished under acceleration of simultaneous ultrasound and microwave irradiation in a very short reaction time has been described. Further, acid derivative 4(a-b) is subjected to acid-amine coupling reaction with secondary amine (p-t) in the presence of HATU to afford 6(p-t) and 7(p-t). The perspective of this protocol is to get rid of the hectic preparation and handling of organic azide which are generated in situ. Read More

Auger: The future of precision medicine.

Nucl Med Biol 2021 Mar 19;96-97:50-53. Epub 2021 Mar 19.

Department of Radiology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 1275 York Avenue, New York, NY 10065, USA; Department of Radiology, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY 10065, USA; Chemical Biology Program, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York City, NY 10065, USA. Electronic address:

First reported by Lise Meitner in 1922 and independently by Pierre Auger in 1923, the Auger effect has been explored as a potential source for targeted radiotherapy. The Auger effect is based on the emission of a low energy electron (typically <25 keV) from an atom post electron capture (EC), internal conversion (IC), or incident X-rays excitation. This phenomenon can cause the emission of a primary electron and multiple electron tracks typically in the nearest proximity of the emission site (2-500 nm). Read More

Dual Antibacterial Effect of In Situ Electrospun Curcumin Composite Nanofibers to Sterilize Drug-Resistant Bacteria.

Nanoscale Res Lett 2021 Apr 7;16(1):54. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Collaborative Innovation Center for Nanomaterials and Devices, College of Physics, Qingdao University, Qingdao, 266071, China.

Bacterial infection especially caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria still endangers human life. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) can effectively kill bacteria, and nanofiber-based PDT can effectively reduce damage to normal tissues. However, current photosensitizers coated on the surfaces of fibers would release to the wound, causing some side effects. Read More

Best Pract Res Clin Endocrinol Metab 2021 Feb 6:101489. Epub 2021 Feb 6.

USC Pituitary Center, Department of Neurosurgery, Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California, 1300 N. State Street, Suite 3300, Los Angeles, CA, 90033, USA; Department of Medicine, Division of Endocrinology and Diabetes, Keck School of Medicine of University of Southern California, 1333 San Pablo Street, BMT-B11, Los Angeles, CA, 90033, USA. Electronic address:

Surgical failure or recurrence of Cushing's disease can be treated with medical therapy, radiotherapy, adrenalectomy, and/or repeat transsphenoidal surgery, all of which have their respective benefits and drawbacks. Redo transsphenoidal surgery has been shown to achieve at least short-term remission in about 40-80% of patients and is associated with low rates of morbidity and near-zero mortality, albeit higher rates of postoperative hypopituitarism, diabetes insipidus, and cerebrospinal fluid leak than initial resection. Despite this, recurrence may ensue in 50% of patients. Read More

Complete pathological response in rectal cancer utilising novel treatment strategies for neo-adjuvant therapy: A systematic review.

Eur J Surg Oncol 2021 Mar 24. Epub 2021 Mar 24.

Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Department of Surgical Oncology, Australia; Sir Peter MacCallum Dept. of Oncology, University of Melbourne, Australia.

Background: Locally advanced rectal cancer is routinely treated with neo-adjuvant long course chemoradiotherapy or short course radiotherapy, followed by total mesorectal excision. Not all patients respond to this treatment and there has been an emergence of novel treatment strategies designed to improve outcomes for these patients. This systematic review aims to assess the current novel neo-adjuvant treatment strategies being utilised in the treatment of patients with rectal cancer and how these impact pathological complete response (pCR) rates.

Transcriptomic and Metabolomic Basis of Short- and Long-Term Post-Harvest UV-C Application in Regulating Grape Berry Quality Development.

Foods 2021 Mar 16;10(3). Epub 2021 Mar 16.

College of Enology, Northwest A&F University, Yangling 712100, China.

In this study, ultraviolet-C (UV-C) was utilized to improve the quality of post-harvest grape berries, and the transcriptomic and metabolomic basis of this improvement was elucidated. Berries of the red grape variety 'Zicui' and the white variety 'Xiangfei' were chosen to evaluate the effect of short- and long-term UV-C irradiation. Post-harvest UV-C application promoted malondialdehyde (MDA) and proline accumulation, and reduced the soluble solid content in berries. Read More
