BACKGROUND: Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is a rare disorder normally diagnosed in infancy. CASE PRESENTATION: A 27-year-old man admitted with non-specific symptoms of CGD first underwent endoscopy, and colonoscopy procedures as primary evaluation of clinical presentation. Eighteen months after the first admission, he was referred to the emergency department for hematemesis, and critical situations, such as a severe anemic with Hgb= 2.6 mg/dl. As a result of this specific clinical presentation, urgent emergency treatment was performed, and endoscopic examination revealed ulcers and abnormalities in the duodenal bulb and jejunum...

Gluten is a complex mixture of hundreds of related proteins, with the two major groups being gliadin and glutenin. Gliadin primarily affects the viscosity of dough, while glutenin contributes to its strength. Nowadays, there is evidence suggesting an increase in gluten exposure due to advancements in cereal technology. Consumption of gluten can lead to development of gluten-related disorders (GRDs) in susceptible individuals. Some GRDs have been strongly associated with an increased risk of developing certain types of cancer...

Polyomaviruses are a group of small, double-stranded DNA viruses that are known to be associated with the development of certain human diseases, but there is evidence that these viruses might be associated with gastrointestinal (GI) cancers. Several polyomaviruses have been identified, such as JC polyomavirus (JCPyV), BK polyomavirus (BKPyV) and recently Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCPyV). Although the direct effects of polyomaviruses on transformation of human cells and cancer development are not clearly recognized, their association with certain human diseases including GI cancers has been proposed through several molecular and epidemiological studies...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) typically presents with a primary hepatic mass. Nevertheless, on rare occasions, the initial presentation can be exclusively related to extrahepatic metastases and the most common sites of metastases are the lungs, lymph nodes, bones, and adrenal glands. While, bone metastases are generally accompanied by multiple metastatic spreads elsewhere in the body or previously diagnosed HCC, cases of solitary bone metastases with no liver lesion at imaging have been reported. Indeed, two rare entities of HCC have been reported in the literature which are the ectopic hepatocellular carcinoma and the infiltrative type of hepatocellular carcinoma with a very challenging radiologic diagnosis and poor prognosis...

AIM: The current study aimed to introduce the key proteins involved in liver ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury through protein-protein interaction (PPI) analysis. BACKGROUND: Liver transplantation (LT) is a well-known treatment for liver diseases that threaten patients with mortality. LT is a complex operation, and several risks, including liver I/R injury, affect its success. Improving LT requires detection of its molecular mechanism. Experiments have revealed that high throughput methods such as proteomics in combination with bioinformatics are useful tools for analyzing the molecular mechanism of disease...

AIM: We aim to investigate the relationship between hsa_circ_0009361 plus hsa_circ_0009362 expression levels and the clinicopathological features of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. BACKGROUND: Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are implicated in the progression and development of CRC. CircRNAs have been recognized as diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers, opening up a new window to comprehend the molecular basis of CRC. Given the significance of circRNAs and the G protein subunit b1 ( GNB1 ) gene in malignancies, the goal of the current investigation was to determine the expression levels of GNB1 derivative circular RNAs circGNB1 ( hsa_circ_0009361 and hsa_circ_0009362 ) in CRC and adjacent control tissues...

Indirect immunofluorescence on HEp-2 cell line (HEp-2-IIF) remains "gold standard" method for the detection of antinuclear antibodies (ANA). ANA is an operative definition, showing the possibility of autoantibodies (Aab) to bind nuclear, and cytoplasmic antigens. One of the major examples is represented by anti-mitochondrial antibodies (AMAs), which target proteins of the inner and outer mitochondrial membranes, located into the cytoplasm. The standard IIF on rat kidney/stomach/liver tissue sections, with the combined use of other commercial assays, may all be used in ordinary lab life to validate the AC-21 pattern on Hep-2 cells...
