Quantitative Proteomics of the Endothelial Secretome Identifies RC0497 as Diagnostic of Acute Rickettsial Spotted Fever Infections
Quantitative Proteomics of the Endothelial Secretome Identifies RC0497 as Diagnostic of Acute Rickettsial Spotted Fever Infections: Mediterranean spotted fever is a reemerging acute tick-borne infection produced by the α-proteobacterium, Rickettsia conorii. Rickettsia conorii infects vascular endothelial cells producing disseminated plasma leakage, manifesting as nonspecific fever, headache, and maculopapular rash. Because there are no available tests of early infection, Mediterranean spotted fever...

LINC00152 promotes hepatocellular carcinoma progression by regulating PI3k/Akt/mTOR signaling pathway through miR-139/PIK3CA
LINC00152 promotes hepatocellular carcinoma progression by regulating PI3k/Akt/mTOR signaling pathway through miR-139/PIK3CA: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) ranks as the fifth most common cancer worldwide, and is the primary histological subtype of liver cancer with high incidence and poor prognosis. Recently, numerous long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been reported to be associated with the tumorigenesis of HCC, however, the underlying mechanisms of LINC00152 action in HCC are poorly understood....

Thrombin-Induced Decidual Colony-Stimulating Factor-2 Promotes Abruption-Related Preterm Birth by Weakening Fetal Membranes
Thrombin-Induced Decidual Colony-Stimulating Factor-2 Promotes Abruption-Related Preterm Birth by Weakening Fetal Membranes: Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) and thrombin generation by decidual cell–expressed tissue factor often accompany abruptions. Underlying mechanisms remain unclear. We hypothesized that thrombin-induced colony-stimulating factor-2 (CSF-2) in decidual cells triggers paracrine signaling via its receptor (CSF2R) in trophoblasts, promoting fetal membrane weakening...

Oral tyrosine kinase inhibitors in OMFS: a review
Oral tyrosine kinase inhibitors in OMFS: a review: It is increasingly common in OMFS to treat patients who are taking therapeutic doses of anticoagulant or antiplatelet drugs, or both. These patients have a high risk of postoperative bleeding ranging from minor oozing that can be managed using local measures, to a major haemorrhage necessitating transfusion. The risk of bleeding associated with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) taken orally is not well-known in the specialty. We report a case series...
