Bone marrow samples from 37 patients randomly treated according to either the ABVD (doxorubicin/bleomycin/vinblastine/dacarbazine), COPPEBVCAD (cyclophosphamide/vincristine/procarbazine/prednisone/epirubicin/bleomycin/vinblastine/lomustine/melphalan/ vindesine), or BEACOPP (bleomycin/etoposide/doxorubicin/cyclophosphamide/vincristine/procarbazine/prednisone) schedule were taken a few days before the start of chemotherapy and 30 days and 6 months after its completion. Samples were cryopreserved, thawed in a single session, and cultured for 5 weeks to detect long-term culture-initiating cells (LTC-IC).

Medication induced diabetes (MID) during induction therapy (MIDi) in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is not well characterized in children, with recent studies yielding conflicting results.

Lymphomas arising in the liver are extremely rare. Here, we describe a case of Hepatitis C virus infection with primary hepatic lymphoma (PHL) presenting with hyperbilirubinemia. A 45-year-old African American male presented with abdominal pain, pruritus, and itching for two days. CT of abdomen and pelvis with contrast showed numerous masses in the liver. The liver biopsy was consistent with diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Conventional chemotherapy was avoided initially because of hyperbilirubinemia. Hence, radiation therapy was given initially to reduce his bilirubin levels and tumor size. The patient was able to complete six cycles of rituximab combined with cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, vincristine, and prednisone (R-CHOP) chemotherapy and achieved a complete response verified by positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT). PHL should be considered when there are numerous space occupying liver lesions seen on imaging. Hyperbilirubinemia may be a reason for delay in treatment for some of these patients. Hence, the role of radiation therapy prior to treatment with R-CHOP is an alternative to management for stage IV diffuse large B cell lymphoma.

Chronic rhinosinusitis patients with nasal polyposis who failed medical therapy and elected endoscopic sinus surgery were enrolled. Patients were randomized into either the treatment arm (postoperative prednisone 30 mg daily × 7 days; n = 18) or placebo arm (postoperative placebo pill daily × 7 days; n = 18). Outcomes were evaluated at 1 week, 3 weeks, and 2 months postoperatively. Primary outcome was endoscopic grading at postoperative month 2 using the Lund-Kennedy system. Secondary outcome included disease-specific quality of life using the Sinonasal Outcome Test (SNOT-22) survey. Patient enrollment occurred from January 2012 through February 2013 (NCT01564355).
This analysis was limited by the paucity of data regarding cutaneous concentrations of corticosteroids after topical application, and by the differing experimental designs utilized in the available studies.
PET/CT detected more nodal (+51%) and extranodal (+89%) lesions than CT. PET/CT modified Ann Arbor staging in eight patients (18%). Five patients (11%) initially considered as being early stage (I/II) were eventually treated as advanced stage (III/IV). In this study, an initial PET/CT prognostic score was significantly more accurate than the Follicular Lymphoma International Prognostic Index score in identifying patients with poor prognosis (i.e. patients with incomplete therapeutic response or early relapse). The accuracy of PET/CT for therapeutic response assessment was higher than that of CT (0.97 vs 0.64), especially due to its ability to identify inactive residual masses. In addition, post-treatment PET/CT was able to predict patients' outcomes. The median progression-free survival was 48 months in the PET/CT-negative group as compared with 17.2 months for the group with residual uptake (p<10(-4)).
Active neurocysticercosis, may be the cause of acquired neuropsychiatric disorders and temporal lobe epilepsy of late onset when the topography is in the mesolimbic circuit. Early etiologic diagnosis and appropriate treatment allows adequate control of their symptoms and potentially final cure.

There were 70 IgA nephropathy patients of whom 46 were men. The average age of patients at biopsy was 39 ± 12.1 years. During the median 23.5 (6-130) months of follow-up, 10 patients progressed to ESRD and no patient died. Five-year renal survival following biopsy was 88%. By multivariate analysis, age more than 50 years (p = 0.003) and baseline serum creatinine level (p = 0.012) were independent predictors of progressing to ESRD and poor prognosis. Although there was no significant difference in proteinuria reduction after 6 months of treatment, kidney function was less preserved in RAS inhibitors therapy alone than in the combination treatment with prednisone.

CARP-1 expression correlated with activated caspase-3 and inversely correlated with activated Akt in DLCL. Exposure to adriamycin stimulated CARP-1 expression and inhibited growth of Raji cells, but not CHOP-resistant WSU-DLCL2 cells. Expression of wild-type CARP-1 or its apoptosis-inducing mutants inhibited growth of Raji as well as CHOP-resistant WSU-DLCL2 cells, in part by activating caspase-9 and apoptosis. Since CARP-1 harbors multiple, apoptosis-promoting subdomains, we investigated whether epigenetic compensation of CARP-1 function by intracellular delivery of trans-activator of transcription (TAT) domain-tagged CARP-1 peptide(s) will inhibit lymphoma growth. Treatments with TAT-tagged CARP-1 peptides suppressed growth of the Raji and WSU-DLCL2 cells by stimulating apoptosis. TAT-CARP-1 (1-198) as well as (896-1150) peptides also suppressed growth of WSU-DLCL2 cell-derived tumor xenografts in SCID mice, while administration of TAT-CARP-1 (1-198) also inhibited growth of WSU-FSCCL cell-derived ascites and prolonged host survival.
