Late distant recurrence of breast carcinoma and metastasis to the main bronchus and choroid

Zhijie Luo, Qin Cai, Yuanyuan Zhao, Xiaochuan Wang, Siying Fu, Linzhu Zhai
2018 Medicine  
Rationale: Metastases of breast carcinoma to the main bronchus and choroid are rare, but have been reported in relevant literature. Late distant recurrence of breast carcinoma after more than 20 years is extremely rare. Herein, we report a 57-year-old woman with late distant recurrence and metastasis to the main bronchus and choroid almost 28 years after surgery. Patient concerns: At the age of 29, the patient underwent chemotherapy and endocrine treatment after a right side mastectomy to

Diagnoses: On evaluation, laboratory findings detected the elevated serum tumor markers of CA12-5, CA15-3, NSE, and Cyfra21-1. The imaging showed left lung metastase, multiple lymph node metastases, and small suspected metastases in the both sides of parietal lobes. Fundus fluorescein angiography showed choroidal occupying lesion of the left side which indicates secondary metastasis and retinal detachment. Combined with the pathological finding via fiberoptic bronchoscopic biopsy, the patient was clinically diagnosed with a late distant recurrence of breast carcinoma. Interventions: The patient received oral endocrine therapy of letrozole, but she refused chemotherapy, radiotherapy and other topical treatments. Outcomes: At the 3-month follow-up visit, the multiple lesions of the left lung and lymph nodes had partially regressed, and the lesion of right parietal lobe had disappeared. The patient's clinical symptoms, such as blood-tinged sputum and dysphagia, had significantly improved. Lessons: We have described this case and reviewed the relevant literature concerning late distant recurrence of breast carcinoma. Importantly, this case indicates that patients with HR positive breast carcinoma are more likely to develop late distant recurrence and clinicians should not ignore the follow-up examinations even more than 20 years after the surgery. Abbreviations: BC = breast carcinoma, BM = bronchial metastasis, CM = choroidal metastasis, CT =computed tomography, HR = hormone receptor, IHC = immunohistochemistry, MRI = magnetic resonance image.

Deletion of narfl leads to increased oxidative stress mediated abnormal angiogenesis and digestive organ defects in zebrafish

2019 Redox Biology  
Nuclear prelamin A recognition factor-like (NARFL) is a human protein that participates in cytosolic iron-sulfur (Fe-S) protein biogenesis and cellular defense against oxidative stress. Previous studies of Narfl knockout mice did not reveal well the regulatory mechanisms of embryonic development mediated by Narfl because the homozygous mice die in utero. Here, we investigated the function of narfl in an established zebrafish knockout model by taking advantage of zebrafish external fertilization

Our experiments showed that narfl deletion resulted in larvae lethality, subintestinal vessel (SIV) malformation and digestive organ defects in the early stages of embryonic development. Biochemical analyses and western blot revealed increased oxidative stress and upregulated hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) expression in narfl-/- fish. The use of HIF-1α inhibitor 2-methoxyestradiol (2ME2) for the treatment of mutants partially rescued the SIV sprouting. These results suggest that narfl deletion causes increased oxidative stress and subintestinal vessel malformation, which further influence the development of digestive organs and might contribute to the lethality of the narfl knockout fish.

2019 Stem Cell Research & Therapy  
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is one of the most common autoimmune diseases of the central nervous system (CNS). CNS has its own unique structural and functional features, while the lack of precision regulatory element with high specificity as therapeutic targets makes the development of disease treatment in the bottleneck. Recently, the immunomodulation and neuroprotection capabilities of bone marrow stromal stem cells (BMSCs) were shown in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). However,
