Resting-state fMRI to investigate the functional connectivity. Our results indicate frequency-unspecific reductions in the selectivity of frequency tuning that start at the level of the MGB and continue in the auditory cortex, as well as reduced thalamocortical and cortico-cortical connectivity with tinnitus. These findings suggest that tinnitus may be associated with reduced inhibition in the auditory pathway, potentially leading to increased neural noise and reduced functional connectivity. Moreover, these results indicate the relevance of high spatial resolution UHF-fMRI for the investigation of the role of sub-cortical auditory regions in tinnitus.

Growth hormone releasing hormone in the unfolded protein response context
Growth hormone releasing hormone in the unfolded protein response context: AbstractThe effects of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone in human pathophysiology are not limited to those mediated by the Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone–Growth Hormone–Insulin-like Growth Factor-I axis. Receptors specific for this neuropeptide are expressed in a diverse variety of human tissues, to initiate multifarious signaling cascades, regulators of cellular homeostasis and survival. The Unfolded Protein Response is...

Adult stem cell response to doped bioactive borate glass
Adult stem cell response to doped bioactive borate glass: AbstractBioactive glasses have transformed healthcare due to their versatility. Bioactive borate glass, in particular, has shown remarkable healing properties for both hard and soft tissues. Incorporating dopants into the composition of bioactive glass helps to control mechanical properties, and it increases their usefulness for clinical applications. Using a bioactive borate glass, 13-93B3 (B3), we investigated eleven dopants on the viability...

V δ2 T cell subsets, defined by PD-1 and TIM-3 expression, present varied cytokine responses in acute myeloid leukemia patients.
V δ2 T cell subsets, defined by PD-1 and TIM-3 expression, present varied cytokine responses in acute myeloid leukemia patients.: In this study, we showed that the frequencies of PD-1+TIM-3- Vδ2 T cells were comparable between healthy controls and AML patients, but the frequencies of PD-1-TIM-3+ Vδ2 T cells and of PD-1+TIM-3+ Vδ2 T cells were significantly higher in AML patients than in healthy controls. Both PD-1 and TIM-3 were upregulated upon phosphoantigen + IL-2 activation, but the relative...

Baicalin and its nanoliposomes ameliorates nonalcoholic fatty liver disease via suppression of TLR4 signaling cascade in mice.
Baicalin and its nanoliposomes ameliorates nonalcoholic fatty liver disease via suppression of TLR4 signaling cascade in mice.: In this study, Methionine and choline deficient diet (MCD)-induced NAFLD mice were treated with baicalin or baicalin-loaded nanoliposomes (BA-NL), then hepatic histopathological changes, biochemical parameters and inflammatory molecules were observed. We found that mice in MCD group showed significant increases in plasma transaminase, hepatocyte apoptosis, hepatic lipid...

In vivo osseointegration of a randomized trabecular titanium structure obtained by an additive manufacturing technique
In vivo osseointegration of a randomized trabecular titanium structure obtained by an additive manufacturing technique: AbstractThe additive manufacturing techniques (AM) are able to realize three-dimensional trabecular structures that mimic the trabecular structure of the bone. An in vivo study in sheep was carried out with the aim of assessing the bone response and the trend of osteointegration of a randomized trabecular titanium structure produced by the AM technique. In 6 sheep were implanted...

Pathophysiology of Vomiting and Esophageal Perforation in Boerhaave's Syndrome
Pathophysiology of Vomiting and Esophageal Perforation in Boerhaave's Syndrome: AbstractBackground and AimsBoerhaave's syndrome, involving esophagus rupture, is considered a pathological response to vomiting that may occur just before perforation. However, the mechanism of vomiting and occurrence of this disease have not been clearly demonstrated.MethodsWe identified patients with esophageal perforation between 1995 and 2017 and reviewed endoscopic findings at retching during upper gastrointestinal...

Gut Dysthymia: Paraneoplastic Chronic Watery Diarrhea
Gut Dysthymia: Paraneoplastic Chronic Watery Diarrhea: Case Presentation and EvolutionA 27-year-old East Asian woman with history of metastatic thymoma was evaluated for a 2-year history of non-bloody chronic watery diarrhea. As an outpatient, she had been evaluated on multiple occasions due to profuse, watery diarrhea that occurred seven times a day. She underwent colonoscopy after 6 months of symptoms, which was normal except for internal hemorrhoids. Computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen/pelvis...

Cytogenetics and mutations could predict outcome in relapsed and refractory acute myeloid leukemia patients receiving BCL-2 inhibitor venetoclax
Cytogenetics and mutations could predict outcome in relapsed and refractory acute myeloid leukemia patients receiving BCL-2 inhibitor venetoclax: AbstractVenetoclax, a selective B cell leukemia/lymphoma-2 (BCL2) inhibitor, has recently shown activity in relapsed or refractory (R/R) acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Effective biomarkers for identifying patients most likely to respond to venetoclax-based treatment are of clinical utility. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety profiles...

Cerebellar tumour-like aggregate of glycosaminoglycans in a MPS IIIB patient: a case report
Cerebellar tumour-like aggregate of glycosaminoglycans in a MPS IIIB patient: a case report: AbstractIntroductionMucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) IIIB is a lysosomal disorder in which a deficiency in α-N-acetylglucosaminidase impairs the degradation of heparan sulphate, which accumulates in tissues causing multiple organs dysfunction. This disease is associated with significant central nervous system (CNS) abnormalities, but a presentation with a tumour-like lesion has never been reported so far.Clinical...

FISH and chips: a review of microfluidic platforms for FISH analysis
FISH and chips: a review of microfluidic platforms for FISH analysis: AbstractFluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) allows visualization of specific nucleic acid sequences within an intact cell or a tissue section. It is based on molecular recognition between a fluorescently labeled probe that penetrates the cell membrane of a fixed but intact sample and hybridizes to a nucleic acid sequence of interest within the cell, rendering a measurable signal. FISH has been applied to, for example, gene...
