Simultaneous Corneal Allograft and Contralateral Corneal Autograft: A Case Report

Sitaula Sanjeeta and Singh Sanjay K

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: January 21, 2019

Autologous contralateral autograft has been described as a useful procedure in patients who require penetrating keratoplasty on their only functional eye and have a clear cornea on their nonfunctional eye due to the low chances of graft rejection in autografts. Here we describe a case where we were able to salvage vision by corneal autografting in a blind patient. A 65-year-old male had blurred vision in both eyes with visual acuity of perception of light (PL) in right eye (RE) and hand motion (HM) in left eye (LE). On examination, RE had a clear cornea, sluggish pupillary reaction with presen...

Alcohol Biomarkers and their Relevance in Detection of Alcohol Consumption in Clinical Settings

Shayani Ghosh, Raka Jain, Sonali Jhanjee, Ravindra Rao and Ashwani Kumar Mishra

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: January 21, 2019

Alcohol use disorder is a growing public health concern worldwide. Accurate assessment is an important step towards effective management of the patient suffering from alcohol use disorder. Self-report often lacks accuracy and may be misleading in a hesitant patient. The use of biochemical laboratory measures such as alcohol biomarkers, often helps in obtaining independent estimations of alcohol use. The traditional biomarkers (such as Aspartate Aminotransferase, Alanine Aminotransferase or Mean Corpuscular Volume) have lower specificity as number of other comorbid disease conditions can indepe...

Impact of a Dedicated Multidisciplinary Research and Treatment Network on Outcomes of Muscle-Invasive Bladder Cancer Patients

Debbie G Robbrecht, Rob HA Verhoeven, Peter de Vries, Michiel S van der Heijden, Joost L Boormans and Ronald de Wit (on behalf of the Dutch Uro-oncology Study group (DUOS))

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: February 09, 2019

Our retrospective analysis based on 3472 muscle-invasive bladder cancer patients, showed a non-significant trend towards survival benefit when treated in hospitals involved in a national study-group network (DUOS), with significantly superior outcomes concerning neo-adjuvant chemotherapy, surgical margins and lymph node dissection. These factors significantly correlated with an improved survival, favoring treatment at centers that are involved in a multidisciplinary national network with dedicated care for bladder cancer....

Approximately after three months of exemestane therapy for breast cancer risk reduction, a 60-year-old female with estrogen receptor positive, right breast ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) presented to the emergency room with severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Imaging studies revealed severe colitis of the transverse colon. No other medications were started except for exemestane that would have contributed to the patient's symptoms. Outpatient workup included stool cultures, laboratory studies, and esophagogastroduodenoscopy and colonoscopy with biopsies. Results of the stud...

Αβ-Crystallin and Laminin-332 are Prognostic Markers for Triple Negative Breast Cancers in a Brazilian Series

Marcia S Graudenz, Diego M Uchoa, Ermani Cadore, Juliana Giacomazzi and Sidia Maria Callegari-Jacques

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: February 01, 2019

Association between increased αβ-crystallin (ABC) and abnormal LN332 (LN332) expression in triple negative (TNBC) and basal-like (BLBC) breast cancers has been suggested recently. This study aims to evaluate ABC and LN332 immunohistochemical expression in a series of TN infiltrating ductal breast carcinomas and its association with clinical-pathological features and prognostic significance. Microarrays of 69 cases of TNBC cases were scored for the expression of ABC, LN332, CK5/6 and EGFR by immunohistochemistry with linked clinical and pathological data (age, tumor size, lymph node metastase...
