Exosomes from human adipose-derived stem cells promoted the expression of angiogenic factors in endothelial cells

by Tran X.,-Q., Vu B.-N.

Summary: In regenerative medicine, human adipose tissue–derived mesenchymal stem cells (hadMSCs) have exhibited tremendous promise as an efficient approach to chronic cardiovascular diseases. Noble effects of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been acknowledged to contribute to not only cellular engraftment and response to the site of injury but also paracrine action via the release of extracellular vesicles, notably exosomes. This study aimed to investigate the effects of exosomes from hadMSCs (hadMSC-Exo) on the angiogenesis of endothelial cells.

Light-Chain Multiple Myeloma Presenting as a Bone Tumor in the Right Knee Joint – a Case Report

by Choudhary N., Raju K., Shanthappa A., H., Prasad C., R., Agarwal S.

Summary: Myeloma is the neoplastic proliferation of plasma cells. The peak age of onset of this disease is the seventh decade, and it is rare in young patients. Myeloma usually presents as lytic lesions in axial bones and rarely present as a joint disease. Usually, the tumor cells secrete monoclonal immunoglobulins. Non-secretory myeloma is a rare clinical entity. The incidence of light-chain myeloma is 16 – 20 % among all multiple myelomas, and the more common subtype is the lambda chain type. We present a case of kappa light chain-type myeloma in a 29-year-old male with the presenting lesion in the right knee joint. The case is presented for its rarity due to the age of patient, presentation, and type of myeloma.

Oxidative status, carbohydrate, and lipid metabolism indicators in saliva and blood serum of type 1 diabetes mellitus patients

by Cheprasova A., Popov S., Pashkov A., Verevkin A., Kryl’skii E., Mittova V.

Summary: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is an acute biomedical problem whose prevalence in the Russian Federation and elsewhere continues to rise. Regular blood glucose monitoring in patients with DM requires the identification of new approaches for the non-invasive assessment of glycemic parameters. Previous studies assessing the relationship between the biochemical composition of saliva and blood plasma found saliva suitable for DM monitoring. In this study, we assessed correlations between oxidative status and carbohydrate and lipid metabolism indicators in saliva and blood serum of patients with type 1 DM (T1DM).

Guar gum nanoparticles ameliorate inflammatory damage in a preclinical mouse model of collagen II induced arthritis

by Ghosh N., Mitra S., Banerjee E. R.

Summary: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a bone disorder causing inflammation of synovial lining followed by production of proinflammatory cytokines at the same site. The synovial hyperplasia is also mediated by the infiltration of lymphocytes, macrophages and other inflammatory cells. The available drugs for RA shows temporary recovery and some are associated with side effects. Here we have used surface functionalized guar gum nanoparticles (GN) to ameliorate disease pathology using collagen II (CII) induced arthritis model in C57BL/6 mice.


Dysregulated Metabolism in Cancer

by Isa A.

Summary: Metabolism describes the cellular bioenergetic pathways that provide energy and macromolecules for protein, lipid, and nucleic acid syntheses. In cancer, malignant cells alter the metabolic pathways to acquire nutrients needed for proliferation and survival. The various metabolic modifications exhibited by cancer cells include aerobic glycolysis, decreased oxidative phosphorylation, and elevated production of biosynthetic intermediates. To support the increasing need for these metabolic modifications, cancer cells increase the expressions of plasma membrane transporters and enzymes involved in the metabolic pathways. Additionally, some cancer cells escape chemotherapy treatment by reprogramming their metabolic activities. This chemotherapy-induced resistance mechanism allows malignant cells to promote their survival as well as to provide defense against cell damage by engaging various metabolic shunt pathways. Therefore, understanding metabolic reprogramming in cancer may provide useful information that can further be exploited to strategize potential treatment interventions and subsequently foster better outcomes among patients with cancer.
