Correlation of tumor burden in sentinel lymph nodes with tumor burden in non-sentinel lymph nodes and survival in cutaneous melanoma.
Correlation of tumor burden in sentinel lymph nodes with tumor burden in non-sentinel lymph nodes and survival in cutaneous melanoma.: CONCLUSIONS: In patients with CM who undergo CLND, SLN tumor burden predicts non-SLN tumor burden. SLN tumor burden parameters provide accurate prognostic stratification independent of non-SLN status and should be considered for incorporation into future staging systems and integrated risk models.

PET/CT-guided biopsy with respiratory motion correction
PET/CT-guided biopsy with respiratory motion correction: AbstractPurposeGiven the ability of positron emission tomography (PET) imaging to localize malignancies in heterogeneous tumors and tumors that lack an X-ray computed tomography (CT) correlate, combined PET/CT-guided biopsy may improve the diagnostic yield of biopsies. However, PET and CT images are naturally susceptible to problems due to respiratory motion, leading to imprecise tumor localization and shape distortion. To facilitate PET/CT-guided...

Touchless scanner control to support MRI-guided interventions
Touchless scanner control to support MRI-guided interventions: AbstractPurposeMRI-guided interventions allow minimally invasive, radiation-free treatment but rely on real-time image data and free slice positioning. Interventional interaction with the data and the MRI scanner is cumbersome due to the diagnostic focus of current systems, confined space and sterile conditions.MethodsWe present a touchless, hand-gesture-based interaction concept to control functions of the MRI scanner typically used...

Combined ipilimumab and nivolumab first‐line and after BRAF targeted therapy in advanced melanoma
Combined ipilimumab and nivolumab first‐line and after BRAF targeted therapy in advanced melanoma: AbstractCombination ipilimumab and nivolumab is a highly active systemic therapy for metastatic melanoma but can cause significant toxicity. We explore the safety and efficacy of this treatment in routine clinical practice, particularly in the setting of BRAF targeted therapy.Consecutive patients with unresectable stage IIIC/IV melanoma commenced on ipilimumab and nivolumab across 10 tertiary melanoma...

Evolutionary processes of melanomas from giant congenital melanocytic nevi
Evolutionary processes of melanomas from giant congenital melanocytic nevi: AbstractMelanoma can develop in a congenital melanocytic nevus (CMN). In fact, a large CMN is associated with a high risk of developing melanoma. Although melanomas arising from CMNs are thought to have a pathogenesis distinct from conventional melanomas, no studies have been conducted on the evolution or tumor heterogeneity of CMN melanomas. We applied multi‐region whole‐exome sequencing to investigate the clonal nature...

Association between Opioid Dose, Acute Post‐operative Pain and Walking Distance Following Lumbar Spine Surgery
Association between Opioid Dose, Acute Post‐operative Pain and Walking Distance Following Lumbar Spine Surgery: High doses of opioids on post‐operative day 1 (POD1) did not translate into better outcomes of pain and gait distance during hospital stay following lumbar spine surgery. Rather, patients who received medium and low dose of opioids during POD1 walked greater distance on post‐operative day 2 or post‐operative day 3 after accounting for some of the main confounding factors.AbstractWhat is...

Urokinase receptor and tissue plasminogen activator as immediate early genes in pentylenetetrazole‐induced seizures in the mouse brain
Urokinase receptor and tissue plasminogen activator as immediate early genes in pentylenetetrazole‐induced seizures in the mouse brain: AbstractEpileptogenesis progressively leads to the rearrangement of normal neuronal networks into more excitable ones and can be viewed as a form of neuroplasticity the molecular mechanisms of which still remain obscure. Here we studied pentylenetetrazole seizure‐induced regulation of genes for plasminogen activator system in the mouse brain. We found that tissue...

FKBP12 is a predictive biomarker for efficacy of anthracycline-based chemotherapy in breast cancer
FKBP12 is a predictive biomarker for efficacy of anthracycline-based chemotherapy in breast cancer: AbstractBackgroundFK506-binding protein 12 (FKBP12) is abundant, ubiquitously expressed cytoplasmic protein with multiple functions in cell signaling transduction. Recently, we reported a novel function for FKBP12 in oncoprotein mouse double minute 2 (MDM2) self-ubiquitination and degradation, which greatly enhanced the sensitivity of cancer cells to chemotherapy. However, the clinical relevance remains...

Species-specific optimization of PEG~SN-38 prodrug pharmacokinetics and antitumor effects in a triple-negative BRCA1-deficient xenograft
Species-specific optimization of PEG~SN-38 prodrug pharmacokinetics and antitumor effects in a triple-negative BRCA1-deficient xenograft: AbstractPurposeOptimal efficacy of a macromolecular prodrug requires balancing the rate of drug release with the rate of prodrug elimination. Since circulating macromolecules have different elimination rates in different species, a prodrug optimal for one species will likely not be for another. The objectives of this work were (a) to develop an approach to optimize...

    Towards an Appreciation of Ethics in Social Enterprise Business ModelsAbstractHow can a critical analysis of entrepreneurial intention inform an appreciation of ethics in social enterprise business models?
