NTCP model for postoperative complications and one-year mortality after trimodality treatment in oesophageal cancer
NTCP model for postoperative complications and one-year mortality after trimodality treatment in oesophageal cancer: Radical resection has long been the mainstay of treatment in patients with locoregionally advanced oesophageal cancer. However, outcome with this single modality treatment was poor with five-year survival rates ranging between 14% and 35% [1]. In a quest to improve outcome, several neoadjuvant and adjuvant strategies using chemotherapy or chemoradiotherapy have been investigated [2,3]....

CD200 Checkpoint Reversal:A Novel Approach to Immunotherapy
CD200 Checkpoint Reversal:A Novel Approach to Immunotherapy: Purpose: Advances in immunotherapy have revolutionized care for some cancer patients. However, current checkpoint inhibitors are associated with significant toxicity and yield poor responses for patients with central nervous system tumors, calling into question whether cancer immunotherapy can be applied to glioblastoma multiforme. We determined that targeting the CD200 activation receptors (CD200AR) of the CD200 checkpoint with a peptide...

A somatostatin receptor subtype-3 (SST3) peptide agonist shows antitumor effects in experimental models of Nonfunctioning Pituitary Tumors
A somatostatin receptor subtype-3 (SST3) peptide agonist shows antitumor effects in experimental models of Nonfunctioning Pituitary Tumors: Purpose: Somatostatin-analogs (SSAs) are efficacious and safe treatments for a variety of neuroendocrine tumors, especially pituitary neuroendocrine tumors (PitNETs). Their therapeutic effects are mainly mediated by somatostatin receptors SST2 and SST5. Most SSAs, such as Octreotide/Lanreotide/Pasireotide, are either nonselective or activate mainly SST2. However,...

Radiotherapy can increase the risk of ischemic cerebrovascular disease in head and neck cancer patients: A Korean population-based cohort study
Radiotherapy can increase the risk of ischemic cerebrovascular disease in head and neck cancer patients: A Korean population-based cohort study: For HNC patients, RT is an essential curative and organ-preserving treatment modality, which can be delivered by itself or combined with chemotherapy or surgery. However, several reports have demonstrated that RT is related to an increased risk of CVD in HNC patients [1–3]. It might have resulted from the chronic side effects of RT on the large to medium...

Soft Auditory Brainstem Hearing Implants from Platinum Kirigami
Soft Auditory Brainstem Hearing Implants from Platinum Kirigami: People who have hearing loss because of inner ear damage or from a poorly functioning auditory nerve are not helped by cochlear and middle ear implants. Auditory brainstem implants (ABI), which bypass most of the hearing system and send signals directly to the auditory brainstem, are the best option for such patients. But currently these devices rely on rigid components that do not fit perfectly with each patient's unique anatomy. This...

There is an urgent need to develop multiple target drug to curb growing resistance by Plasmodia due to use of single target drugs and lack of vaccines. Based on a previous study, 3-chloro-4-(4-chlorophenoxy) aniline (ANI) inhibits...

Journal of Anatomy , Human biological variation in sesamoid bone prevalence: the curious case of the fabellaThe fabella, a sesamoid bone in the knee, is ~3.5× more common today than 100 years ago. We performed meta‐analyses on prevalence rate studies from 1875–2019, and found (i) fabellae are more common in men, older individuals, and Asian/Oceania populations than women, younger individuals, and North American/African populations (ii) 72.94% of cases are bilateral, and (iii) among unilateral cases,...

AllergyPulmonary IL‐33 orchestrates innate immune cells to mediate RSV‐evoked airway hyperreactivity and eosinophiliaAbstract Background Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection is epidemiologically linked to asthma. During RSV infection, IL‐33 is elevated and promotes immune cell activation, leading to the development of asthma. However, which immune cells are responsible for triggering airway hyperreactivity (AHR), inflammation and eosinophilia remained to be clarified. We aimed to elucidate...
