    • Authors: Samra, B; Tam, E, Baseri, B, Shapira, I.
      Pages: 1023 - 1030
      Abstract: The emergence of immunotherapy has provided significant clinical improvements in the treatment of metastatic solid tumors. Recurrent/metastatic head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) has dismal prognosis with median survival ranging between 6and12 months. Our aim is to review the current knowledge on the role of the immune system and immune checkpoint inhibitors in HNSCC. We will focus on the landmark trials that led to the regulatory approvals of pembrolizumab and nivolumab, and discuss a few promising contenders in clinical development and highlight the need to identify better biomarkers other than programmed death-ligand 1 to improve patient selection and help predict response.

      Pages: 1031 - 1036
      Abstract: Hyperuricemia has been associated in epidemiological studies with the development of obesity, hypertension, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Nevertheless, it remains unclear whether lowering of serum uric acid (UA) alters any of the features of the metabolic syndrome. In this prospective study (ClinicalTrials.gov identifier: NCT01654276), 24 patients with gouty arthritis and hyperuricemia were treated for 6 months with the xanthine oxidase inhibitor febuxostat to lower serum UA to

  • Metabolic and cardiovascular effects of chronic mild hyperuricemia in

      Abstract: Mildly elevated serum uric acid levels are common in people with metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), but whether elevated uric acid has a causal role in the pathogenesis of diabetes remains uncertain. We tested whether chronic mild hyperuricemia in rodents under controlled laboratory conditions can cause glucose intolerance in otherwise healthy animals, or whether it can worsen glucometabolic control in animals that are genetically predisposed to T2DM. We used an established model of experimental hyperuricemia in rodents with potassium oxonate dietary supplementation, which led to sustained, approximately two-fold elevation of uric acid compared with control animals. We also reversed the hyperuricemic effect of oxonate in some animals by treatment with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor. Manipulation of serum uric acid levels in Sprague-Dawley rats for up to 18 weeks did not affect fasting glucose and glucose tolerance. Blood pressure was also not affected by hyperuricemia in rats fed a Western-type diet. We next sought to determine whether uric acid may aggravate or accelerate the onset of glucometabolic abnormalities in rats already predisposed to T2DM. Chronic oxonate treatment in Zucker diabetic fatty (ZDF) and lean control rats for up to 6 weeks did not affect fasting glucose, insulin, and glucose tolerance in ZDF rats. Taken together, these findings indicate that elevated uric acid does not directly contribute to the pathogenesis of glucose intolerance and T2DM in rodents.

  • Recombinant tissue plasminogen activator treatment of pulmonary embolism
           also improves deep venous thrombosis
    • Authors: Er; M.
      Pages: 1045 - 1049
      Abstract: Anticoagulants are the standard form of treatment used in deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Thrombolytic therapy is another method to treat thromboembolism by using intravenous administration of streptokinase, urokinase and recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (r-tPA). We have investigated the effect of r-tPA, a systemic thrombolytic used for the treatment of pulmonary emboli, on DVT in the same patients. 130 patients who were diagnosed with both pulmonary embolism and DVT were included in this study. Lower extremity Doppler ultrasonography (DUS) was conducted on all of the patients upon admission and then on the 6th month. The patients were divided into two groups. Patıents in Group 1 were initially given 100 mg thrombolytic (r-tPA) intravenously and then standard anticoagulation therapy (enoxaparin sodium and warfarin). Patients in Group 2, however, were given only standard anticoagulation therapy (enoxaparin sodium and warfarin). In the 6th month DUS follow-up control for Group 1, out of 66 cases, the venous thrombosis of 54 patients were completely resolved, and the remaining 12 patients had residual vein occlusion (RVO). In Group 2, out of 64 cases, 41 patients were found to have complete resolution, while 23 patients continued to have RVO. This difference was statistically significant (p=0.029). OR was calculated to be 2.47. In other words, the risk of RVO was increased by 2.47 times in the patients who were not treated with r-tPA. Thrombolytic therapy of DVT should be considered more frequently to avoid complications of thrombosis, and DUS monitoring should be recommended before discontinuing anticoagulant therapy.

  • Pilot study on the occurrence of multiple cancers following cancer-related

      Abstract: New primary cancers can occur in patients with a previous cancer. Among the risk factors, therapies such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and hormonal therapy have been associated with the development of neoplasms. Second cancers most commonly develop 5–10 years after the initial tumor. We observe the implications of cancer-related therapy in the development of a new tumor. We looked at 602 patients who had their first cancer diagnosed in 2011 and calculated the number of different primary cancers between 2011 and 2016 for each patient. Twenty-four patients had a second cancer within 5 years from the first diagnosis and there were no patients with a third cancer. There was no statically significant difference in the rates of second cancers after exposure to chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormonal therapy, or any combination of these (p=0.738). Of the second cancers reported after 2011, renal, uterine, cervical, and lung cancers were the most frequently reported. Additionally, there was no statically significant difference among the rates of second cancers in men versus women (p=0.467), as well as among whites versus blacks (p=0.318). We conclude that while new primaries can occur after one cancer, there was no increased risk after exposure to different cancer-related therapies. With increased focus on the primary disease, there is a higher likelihood of missing another primary lesion. This is important as the practical implications of managing multiple primaries are rarely discussed.

  • Regulatory BC200 RNA in peripheral blood of patients with invasive breast
           cancer

      Abstract: Regulatory brain cytoplasmic 200 RNA (BC200 RNA) is highly expressed in human mammary carcinoma cells. Here, we ask whether BC200 RNA becomes detectable in peripheral blood of patients with invasive breast cancer. Using quantitative reverse-transcription PCR (qRT-PCR) methodology, we observed that BC200 RNA blood levels were significantly elevated, in comparison with healthy subjects, in patients with invasive breast cancer prior to tumorectomy (p=0.001) and in patients with metastatic breast cancer (p=0.003). In patients with invasive breast cancer who had recently undergone tumorectomy, BC200 RNA blood levels were not distinguishable from levels in healthy subjects. However, normality analysis revealed a heterogeneous distribution of patients in this group, including a subgroup of individuals with high residual BC200 RNA blood levels. In blood from patients with invasive breast cancer, BC200 RNA was specifically detected in the mononuclear leukocyte fraction. The qRT-PCR approach is sensitive enough to detect as few as three BC200 RNA-expressing tumor cells. Our work establishes the potential of BC200 RNA detection in blood to serve as a molecular indicator of invasive breast malignancy.

  • Children with allergic diseases have an increased subsequent risk of
           migraine upon reaching school age
    • Authors: Wei, C.-C; Lin, C.-L, Shen, T.-C, Chen, A.-C.
      Pages: 1064 - 1068
      Abstract: The association between migraine and allergy has remained a subject of debate for more than a century. To systemically investigate the interaction between children with antecedent allergic diseases and their future risks of migraine on reaching school age, we recruited 16,130 children aged 7–18 with migraine diagnosed between 2000 and 2008, and 64,520 matched controls without a history of migraine. The ORs of migraine were calculated for the association with allergic diseases diagnosed before migraine diagnosis. The allergic diseases included atopic dermatitis, allergic conjunctivitis, allergic rhinitis (AR), and asthma. Children with preceding allergic diseases had a greater subsequent risk of migraine than the controls. Among the four evaluated diseases, AR had the highest adjusted OR (aOR) of 2.17 (95% CI 2.09 to 2.26). Children with all four allergic diseases had the highest aOR of 3.59 (95% CI 2.91 to 4.44). Further, an increasing trend of aORs was observed with more allergic disease-associated medical consulting. Our study indicates that children with allergic diseases are at increased subsequent risk of migraine when they reach school age, and the risk shows a cumulative effect of more allergic diseases and more allergy-related healthcare.

      Abstract: This study aimed to investigate the association between charcoal-burning suicide attempts and the risk of developing dementia. A nationwide, matched cohort, population-based study enrolled a total of 4103 patients with newly diagnosed charcoal-burning suicide attempts, between 2000 and 2010, which were selected from the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan, along with 12,309 controls matched for sex and age. After adjusting for confounding factors, Fine and Gray’s competing risk analysis was used to compare the risk of developing dementia during the 10-year follow-up period. Of the enrolled patients (n=16,412), dementia developed in 303 (1.85%), including 2.56% in the study group (105 in 4103) and 1.61% (198 in 12,309) in the control group. The Fine and Gray’s survival analysis revealed that the patients with charcoal-burning suicide attempts were likely to develop dementia, with a crude HR of 5.170 (95% CI 4.022 to 6.644, p
