 Latest Results for Investigational New DrugsEarly depth of tumor shrinkage and treatment outcomes in non-small cell lung cancer treated using NivolumabSummary Background It would be useful to have criteria for predicting long-term treatment responses to immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs). Maximum depth of response correlates with treatment outcomes among patients receiving programmed death protein 1 axis inhibitors for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We investigated associations between early...

 Clinical GeneticsChromatinopathies: a focus on Cornelia de Lange SyndromeAbstract In recent years, many genes have been associated with chromatinopathies classified as "Cornelia de Lange Syndrome‐like". It is known that the phenotype of these patients becomes less recognisable, overlapping to features characteristic of other syndromes caused by genetic variants affecting different regulators of chromatin structure and function. Therefore, Cornelia de Lange Syndrome diagnosis might be arduous due...

Is burn-out finally a disease or not?In May 2019, WHO has stated that burn-out should be considered as a disease in the new version of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11). This information was widely disseminated in the news media. However, a few hours later, the international organisation stepped back. All this confusion brings us to that question: what exactly is burn-out? Moreover, should it be considered a disease or not? Freudenberger defined burn-out as 'a state of fatigue...

Generation of solar spicules and subsequent atmospheric heatingSpicules are rapidly evolving fine-scale jets of magnetized plasma in the solar chromosphere. It remains unclear how these prevalent jets originate from the solar surface and what role they play in heating the solar atmosphere. Using the Goode Solar Telescope at the Big Bear Solar Observatory, we observed spicules emerging within minutes of the appearance of opposite-polarity magnetic flux around dominant-polarity magnetic field concentrations....

Until recently, contact allergy to limonene was considered rare because positive patch tests to it were infrequently observed. In recent years, however, it has been demonstrated that exposure of limonene to oxygen (air) results in the formation of a number of oxidation products, of which the hydroperoxides have a far stronger sensitizing potency than the pure compound.

Long-Term Outcomes of the Minimal Skin Incision Technique for Correcting Severe Microform and Minor-Form Cleft Lip With Philtrum Reconstruction Through the Intraoral IncisionBackground: Because the traditional technique is known to cause visible scarring, it is challenging to yield optimal outcomes while treating a severe type of microform and minor-form cleft lip. The authors present a new refined technique with minimal skin incision and philtrum formation through an intraoral incision. Methods:...

Mouse model of the human serotonin transporter-linked polymorphic regionAbstractGenetic factors play a significant role in risk for mood and anxiety disorders. Polymorphisms in genes that regulate the brain monoamine systems, such as catabolic enzymes and transporters, are attractive candidates for being risk factors for emotional disorders given the weight of evidence implicating monoamines involvement in these conditions. Several common genetic variants have been identified in the human serotonin...

Application of nanoparticles in ocular drug delivery systemsAbstractApplication of a drug in the form of eye drops represents easiest, safest and, at the moment, the most common non-invasive method of ocular drug application. Other conventional ophthalmic formulations in the form of aqueous and oily solutions, ointments, suspensions and emulsions were established to increase bioavailability, solubility and pericorneal retention time of a drug, compared to eye drops. But in the last few decades, nanotechnology-based...
