Immune-Modulation in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Current Concepts and Future Strategies...
Immune-Modulation in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Current Concepts and Future StrategiesChronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is caused by the chronic inhalation of toxic particles and gases that are primarily but not exclusively derived from cigarette smoke that may be either actively or passively inhaled, which initiates a persistent innate and adaptive immune response in the lung. This immune response is associated with an aberrant tissue repair and remodeling process that results...

First-Line Selective Internal Radiation Therapy in Patient with Uveal Melanoma Liver MetastasesSurvival of patients with uveal melanoma liver metastases is strongly correlated with disease control in the liver. Unfortunately, there are no standardized treatments for this chemo-resistant disease. Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT) has been tested as salvage therapy but no data exist about its use as first-line therapy. The purpose of this study was to investigate the safety and efficacy of...

Clonal evolution of acute myeloid leukemia from diagnosis to relapseAbstract Based on the individual genetic profile, acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients are classified into clinically meaningful molecular subtypes. However, the mutational profile within these groups is highly heterogeneous and multiple AML subclones may exist in a single patient in parallel. Distinct alterations of single cells may be key factors in providing the fitness to survive in this highly competitive environment. Although...

Non-HDL cholesterol should not generally replace LDL cholesterol in the management of hyperlipidaemiaPurpose of review Non-HDL cholesterol was originally conceived as a therapeutic target for statin treatment in hypertriglyceridaemia when apolipoprotein B100 assays were not widely available. Recently non-HDL cholesterol has been recommended to replace LDL cholesterol in the clinical management of dyslipidaemia routinely in general medical practice. This is misguided. Recent findings Non-HDL cholesterol...
