 Piplartine attenuates the proliferation of hepatocellular carcinoma cells via regulating hsa_circ_100338 expressionHsa_circ_100338 was upregulated in piplartine treated hepatocellular carcinoma cells. Dual luciferase reporter gene assay and RIP assay showed that circ‐100338 can regulate ZEB1 expression by competitively bind to miR‐141‐3p. Abstract Researches have pointed that piplartine inhibits the proliferation of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells, however, the underlying mechanisms has not...

Major regulators of phosphate homeostasis are parathormone, fibroblast growth factor 23, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, which respond to variations of serum phosphate levels and act to increase or decrease intestinal absorption and renal tubular reabsorption, through the modulation of expression of transcellular transporters...

Characterization of CD103 + CD8 + tissue-resident T cells in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma: may be tumor reactive and resurrected by anti-PD-1 blockade
Characterization of CD103 + CD8 + tissue-resident T cells in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma: may be tumor reactive and resurrected by anti-PD-1 blockade: AbstractThough therapy that promotes anti-tumor response about CD8+ tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) has shown great potential, clinical responses to CD8+ TILs immunotherapy vary considerably, largely because of different subpopulation of CD8+ TILs exhibiting different biological characters. To define the relationship between subpopulation...

Relevance of humanized three-dimensional tumor tissue models: a descriptive systematic literature review: AbstractDespite numerous advances in tumor screening, diagnosis, and treatment, to date, tumors remain one of the leading causes of death, principally due to metastasis and the physiological damage produced by tumor growth. Among the main limits related to the study of tumor physiology there is the complex and heterogeneity nature of its environment and the absence of relevant, simple and inexpensive...

Concomitant Congenital Intraoral Dermoid Cyst and Heterotopic Gastrointestinal Cyst: AbstractSublingual dermoid cysts and oral heterotopic gastrointestinal cysts are well-documented causes of sublingual swellings in infants. However, the simultaneous occurrence of both cysts is an extremely rare phenomenon, with only two previous cases reported in literature. We present a case of 1-month-old neonate with a cystic ventral tongue mass that on histologic examination showed a dermoid cyst with co-existing...

Spinocerebellar ataxia subtypes 1, 3, and 6 (SCA1, MJD/SCA3, and SCA6)................Distribution of the CAG Triplet Repeat in ATXN1 , ATXN3 , and CACNA1A Loci in Peruvian Population
Distribution of the CAG Triplet Repeat in ATXN1 , ATXN3 , and CACNA1A Loci in Peruvian Population: AbstractSpinocerebellar ataxia subtypes 1, 3, and 6 (SCA1, MJD/SCA3, and SCA6) are among the most prevalent autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxias worldwide, but their relative frequencies in Peru are low. Frequency of large normal (LN) alleles at spinocerebellar ataxia-causative genes has been proposed to be associated with disease prevalence. To investigate the allelic distribution of the CAG repeat...

Monitoring the Crosstalk Between the Estrogen Receptor and Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2 with PET: AbstractPurposeOvarian cancer (OC) leads to poor survival rates mainly due to late stage detection and innate or acquired resistance to chemotherapy. Thus, efforts have been made to exploit the estrogen receptor (ER) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) to treat OC. However, patients eventually become resistant to these treatments as well. HER2 overexpression contributes to...

Noise-Induced Changes of the Auditory Brainstem Response to Speech—a Measure of Neural Desynchronisation?
Noise-Induced Changes of the Auditory Brainstem Response to Speech—a Measure of Neural Desynchronisation?: AbstractIt is commonly assumed that difficulty in listening to speech in noise is at least partly due to deficits in neural temporal processing. Given that noise reduces the temporal fidelity of the auditory brainstem response (ABR) to speech, it has been suggested that the speech ABR may serve as an index of such neural deficits. However, the temporal fidelity of ABRs, to both speech and non-speech...

Sonography of the penis/erectile dysfunction
Sonography of the penis/erectile dysfunction: AbstractErectile dysfunction (ED) is defined as the persistent inability to achieve and/or maintain an erection for a satisfactory sexual activity. It is secondary to several organic, psychogenic, and combined causes, and represents a serious health dilemma affecting both men and their partners. The diagnostic approach to erectile dysfunction has significantly changed in the last years with the advent of phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5) inhibitors, and with...

A "Catastrophic" Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia
A "Catastrophic" Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia: Background. Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is a transient, antibody-mediated thrombocytopenia syndrome that usually follows exposure to unfractioned heparin (UFH) or low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH). In contrast to other pathological conditions which lead to thrombocytopenia and bleeding complications, HIT results in a paradoxical prothrombotic state. It is caused by antibodies directed to complexes containing UFH or LMWH and a self-platelet...

Glycogenic Hepatopathy: A Rare Hepatic Complication of Poorly Controlled Type 1 DM
Glycogenic Hepatopathy: A Rare Hepatic Complication of Poorly Controlled Type 1 DM: Glycogen hepatopathy (GH) is a rare complication of type 1 diabetes mellitus that leads to an abnormal accumulation of glycogen in the hepatocytes. The exact mechanism of GH remains unknown, but fluctuations in blood glucose and insulin levels play important roles in promoting glycogen accumulation. We report a case of a 16-year-old female diagnosed with poorly controlled type 1 diabetes mellitus with hepatomegaly...
