A Somatic Mutation In Moesin Drives Progression Into Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Ouyang Yuan, Jeffrey A Magee, Et Al. Apr 2022

A Somatic Mutation In Moesin Drives Progression Into Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Ouyang Yuan, Jeffrey A Magee, Et Al.

Open Access Publications

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) arises when leukemia-initiating cells, defined by a primary genetic lesion, acquire subsequent molecular changes whose cumulative effects bypass tumor suppression. The changes that underlie AML pathogenesis not only provide insights into the biology of transformation but also reveal novel therapeutic opportunities. However, backtracking these events in transformed human AML samples is challenging, if at all possible. Here, we approached this question using a murine in vivo model with an MLL-ENL fusion protein as a primary molecular event. Upon clonal transformation, we identified and extensively verified a recurrent codon-changing mutation (Arg


Segmental Colitis Associated With Diverticulosis Masquerading As Polyploid-Appearing Mucosa In The Rectosigmoid Area On Endoscopy And As Focal Thickening On Imaging, Eugene C. Nwankwo Jr, Gebran Khneizer, Gregory Sayuk, Jill Elwing, Necat Havlioglu, Michael Presti Mar 2022

Segmental colitis associated with diverticulosis (SCAD) is an inflammatory disease affecting segments of the large bowel with diverticular disease. SCAD presents several challenges in diagnoses and treatment because it often mimics a range of disorders including inflammatory bowel disease and malignancy. Here, we present the case of a 72-year-old man with lower abdominal pain and bloody stools whose initial abdominal workup showed nonspecific large bowel thickening and concerns for malignancy. Ultimately, the patient was diagnosed with mild SCAD and treated conservatively with a resolution of symptoms. He had no symptoms at the three-month and 1-year follow-ups. This case highlights the …

2019 Hrs/Ehra/Aphrs/Lahrs Expert Consensus Statement On Catheter Ablation Of Ventricular Arrhythmias: Executive Summary, Edmond M Cronin, Phillip Cuculich, Et Al

Open Access Publications

Ventricular arrhythmias are an important cause of morbidity and mortality and come in a variety of forms, from single premature ventricular complexes to sustained ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation. Rapid developments have taken place over the past decade in our understanding of these arrhythmias and in our ability to diagnose and treat them. The field of catheter ablation has progressed with the development of new methods and tools, and with the publication of large clinical trials. Therefore, global cardiac electrophysiology professional societies undertook to outline recommendations and best practices for these procedures in a document that will update and replace the …

Open Access Publications

Despite advances in systemic therapies for solid tumors, the development of brain metastases remains a significant contributor to overall cancer mortality and requires improved methods for diagnosing and treating these lesions. Similarly, the prognosis for malignant primary brain tumors remains poor with little improvement in overall survival over the last several decades. In both primary and metastatic central nervous system (CNS) tumors, the challenge from a clinical perspective centers on detecting CNS dissemination early and understanding how CNS lesions differ from the primary tumor, in order to determine potential treatment strategies. Acquiring tissue from CNS tumors has historically been accomplished …

BACKGROUND: We previously investigated low doses (105 or 225 mg) of gantenerumab, a fully human monoclonal antibody that binds and removes aggregated amyloid-β by Fc receptor-mediated phagocytosis, in the SCarlet RoAD (SR) and Marguerite RoAD (MR) phase 3 trials. Several lines of evidence suggested that higher doses may be necessary to achieve clinical efficacy. We therefore designed a positron emission tomography (PET) substudy to evaluate the effect of gantenerumab uptitrated to 1200 mg every 4 weeks on amyloid-β plaques as measured using florbetapir PET in patients with prodromal to moderate Alzheimer's disease (AD).

METHODS: A subset of patients enrolled in …
