Abstract Background Ovarian cancer (OC) is one of the most threatening diseases among women in the world. Plasma microRNAs (miRNAs) may serve as promising diagnostic biomarkers for patients with OC. Methods Using quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) based on Exiqon panel, we identified 27 differentially expressed miRNAs from 2 OC pool samples and 1 normal control (NC) pool in the initial screening phase. Then we further validated the identified miRNAs through th...

Abstract Energy drinks are widely used and very popular. They are touted as “harmless” energy boosters for use in professional, recreational and domestic settings. They are typically high in monosaccharides, and caffeine with other assorted products like ginseng. Careful study of the potential risks of their use are nonexistent while rigorous documentation of their touted energy boosting capacity is also meagre. We present the cautionary case of a 46-year-old Caucasian man with well controlled t...

ABSTRACT Background Interleukin-33 (IL-33) has a variety of biological activities in different pathological models. However, the underlying effects of IL-33 on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) have not been fully elucidated. Therefore, we focused on investigating the biological effects of IL-33 on HCC stemness expansion. Methods IL-33 expression in clinical tissue specimens were evaluated using immunohistochemical technology. Western blotting, flow cytometry and quantitative real-time polymerase c...

Abstract Gout is a common disorder of uric acid metabolism highly prevalent in our population. The majority of the patients with gout present with acute monoarticular arthritis but, a significant proportion of patients also go on to develop chronic tophaceous gout. Musculoskeletal sites are the usual sites of tophus formation and, very rarely, tophi may form in a visceral organ. We present a case of pancreatic gout of which only 3 cases have been reported. Our case is unique and challenging, as ...

ABSTRACT Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a variant of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy characterized by apical hypertrophy, deep T-wave inversions in precordial electrocardiogram (EKG) leads, and a ventriculogram shaped like the ‘Ace of Spades’. Patients are often asymptomatic but sometimes present with atypical chest pain, angina, or atrial fibrillation. The deep T-wave inversions on EKG often mimic acute coronary syndrome. Coronary angiogram in these patients is unrevealing, but the character...

ABSTRACT Background Stiff-person syndrome (SPS) is a rare autoimmune disorder that leads to progressively worsening stiffness and spasm of thoracic and proximal-limb musculature. Dyspnea has been reported but not analyzed in patients with SPS. Methods For this prospective study, 17 patients were recruited from a university-based neurology clinic. History and exam were performed, demographic information collected, available imaging reviewed. Dyspnea was assessed using vertical Visual Analog scale...
