[Ab] Abstract:INTRODUCTION: To report the technical and clinical success of performing minimally invasive endolymphatic embolization in neonates presenting with a chylothorax or chylous ascites. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 3 neonates, 2 males and 1 female, with a mean age of 28 days (range: 19-39 days) presented with a chylothorax (2) or chylous ascites (1) which was refractory to conservative management. All 3 patients (1 previously reported) underwent intranodal lymphangiography followed by thoracic duct embolization with 1 patient undergoing additional sclerosis of the retroperitoneal abdominal lymphatics. RESULTS: Lymphangiography, thoracic duct embolization, and sclerosis of the retroperitoneal abdominal lymphatics was technically successful. The chylothorax resolved in both patients. Persistent chylous ascites was noted after treatment that resolved after surgical placement of a vicryl mesh and fibrin sealant. 1 major complication occurred with non-target embolization of glue into the lungs requiring embolectomy. CONCLUSION: Thoracic duct and retroperitoneal abdominal lymphatic embolization can be performed in neonates. Resolution of chylothorax was seen in two patients (one previously reported) following embolization, while 1 patient with chylous ascites required surgical management after endolymphatic intervention.

[Ab] Abstract:Objective: Postpancreatectomy hemorrhage (PPH) is an uncommon but serious complication of Whipple surgery. To evaluate the radiologic features associated with late PPH at the first postoperative follow up CT, before bleeding. Materials and Methods: To evaluate the radiological features associated with late PPH at the first follow-up CT, two radiologists retrospectively reviewed the initial postoperative follow-up CT images of 151 patients, who had undergone Whipple surgery. Twenty patients showed PPH due to vascular problem or anastomotic ulcer. The research compared CT and clinical findings of 20 patients with late PPH and 131 patients without late PPH, including presence of suggestive feature of pancreatic fistula (presence of air at fluid along pancreaticojejunostomy [PJ]), abscess (fluid collection with an enhancing rim or gas), fluid along hepaticojejunostomy or PJ, the density of ascites, and the size of visible gastroduodenal artery (GDA) stump. Results: CT findings including pancreatic fistula, abscess, and large GDA stump were associated with PPH on univariate analysis ( ≤ 0.009). On multivariate analysis, radiological features suggestive of a pancreatic fistula, abscess, and a GDA stump > 4.45 mm were associated with PPH ( ≤ 0.031). Conclusion: Early postoperative CT findings including GDA stump size larger than 4.45 mm, fluid collection with an enhancing rim or gas, and air at fluid along PJ, could predict late PPH.

[Ab] Abstract:Celiac disease (CD) is an autoimmune disease affecting multiple organs. It often presents as gastrointestinal manifestations associated with malabsorption. However, serosa involvement uncommonly reveals this enteropathy, making the diagnosis difficult. We here report the case of JA, aged 63 years, admitted to hospital to detect the cause of malabsorption syndrome associated with polyserositis signs including pleurisy, pericarditis, ascites and hydrocephalus. The diagnosis of CD was based on endoscopic signs without serology tests. Patient's evolution was partially favorable, due to lack of compliance with a gluten-free diet. Our study reports the first case of CD revealed by polyserositis. CD should be suspected in patients with malabsorption syndrome, in the absence of evocative signs.

[Ti] Title:Metabolic causes of nonimmune hydrops fetalis: A next-generation sequencing panel as a first-line investigation.

[Ab] Abstract:PURPOSES: Hydrops fetalis is a life-threatening fetal condition, and 85% of all cases are classified as nonimmune hydrops fetalis (NIHF). Up to 15% of NIHF cases may be due to inborn errors of metabolism (IEM), but a large proportion of cases linked to metabolic disorders remains undiagnosed. This lack of diagnosis may be related to the limitations of conventional biological procedures, which involve sequential investigations and require multiple samples and steps. In addition, this approach is time consuming. We have developed a next-generation sequencing (NGS) panel to investigate metabolic causes of NIHF, ascites, and polyhydramnios associated to another fetal abnormality. METHODS: The hydrops fetalis (HydFet) panel was designed to cover the coding regions and flanking intronic sequences of 41 genes. A retrospective study of amniotic fluid samples from 40 subjects was conducted. A prospective study was subsequently initiated, and six samples were analyzed using the NGS panel. RESULTS: Five IEM diagnoses were made using the HydFet panel (Niemann-Pick type C (NPC), Barth syndrome, HNF1Β deficiency, GM1 gangliosidosis, and Gaucher disease). This analysis also allowed the identification of 8p sequence triplication in an additional case. CONCLUSION: NGS combined with robust bioinformatics analyses is a useful tool for identifying the causative variants of NIHF. Subsequent functional characterization of the protein encoded by the altered gene and morphological studies may confirm the diagnosis. This paradigm shift allows a significant improvement of IEM diagnosis in NIHF.

[Ab] Abstract:Nano-sized membrane-encapsulated extracellular vesicles isolated from the ascites fluids of ovarian cancer patients are identified as exosomes based on their biophysical and compositional characteristics. We report here that T cells pulsed with these tumor-associated exosomes during TCR-dependent activation inhibit various activation endpoints including translocation of NFκB and NFAT into the nucleus, upregulation of CD69 and CD107a, production of cytokines, and cell proliferation. In addition, the activation of virus-specific CD8 T cells that are stimulated with the cognate viral peptides presented in the context of class I MHC is also suppressed by the exosomes. The inhibition occurs without loss of cell viability and coincidentally with the binding and internalization of these exosomes. This exosome-mediated inhibition of T cells was transient and reversible: T cells exposed to exosomes can be reactivated once exosomes are removed. We conclude that tumor-associated exosomes are immunosuppressive and represent a therapeutic target, blockade of which would enhance the antitumor response of quiescent tumor-associated T cells and prevent the functional arrest of adoptively transferred tumor-specific T cells or chimeric antigen receptor T cells. .

[Ab] Abstract:There are global increased interests to identify novel agents that can possess anti-tumor effects or maximize the anti-tumor effects of low doses for conventional anti-cancer drugs. The aim of this study was to investigate anti-tumor effects and protective role of isolated hesperidin from sweet orange on doxorubicin-induced toxicity in Ehrlich ascites carcinoma (EAC) bearing mice. Tumor cells were injected into Swiss albino mice followed by hesperidin administration either alone or in combination with doxorubicin. Biochemical parameters on serum and hepatic were measured. In addition, the effect of hesperidin on apoptotic genes (Caspase3 and Bax) and anti-apoptotic gene (Bcl2) on tumor cells were evaluated by RT- PCR. The results showed that addition of hesperidin to doxorubicin-induced higher anti-tumor responses than treatment with hesperidin or doxorubicin alone. Hesperidin and doxorubicin in combination prolonged the life span of EAC tumor-bearing mice which was associated with a decrease in the number of viable tumor cells and increases in dead tumor cells number. In addition, co-administration of hesperidin with doxorubicin ameliorated the alteration in serum ALT, AST, ALP, GGT and LDH activities, total protein, albumin, creatinine, urea and total lipids concentrations. Moreover, hesperidin alone and in combination with doxorubicin-treated group decreased hepatic, TBARS level significantly as compared with tumor bearing mice and doxorubicin treated group. In contrast, hesperidin alone and combined with doxorubicin ameliorated total antioxidant capacity, reduced glutathione level, and antioxidant enzymes activities such as GPx and CAT in liver tissues. Moreover, hesperidin induced apoptosis of tumor cells which appeared as DNA fragmentation by down-regulation of Bcl2 as anti-apoptotic gene and stimulation of Caspase3 and Bax genes expression as apoptotic genes. In conclusion, Egyptian citrus peels are a rich source of the antioxidant hesperidin. Moreover, it can ameliorate the cytotoxic effect of doxorubicin while enhancing its anti-tumor effect.

[Ab] Abstract:The creation of transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) is a widely performed technique to relieve portal hypertension, and to manage recurrent variceal bleeding and refractory ascites in patients where medical and/or endoscopic treatments have failed. However, portosystemic shunt creation can be challenging in the presence of chronic portal vein occlusion. In this case report, we describe a minimally invasive endovascular mesocaval shunt creation with transsplenic approach for the management of recurrent variceal bleeding in a portal hypertension patient with intra- and extrahepatic portal vein occlusion.

[Ab] Abstract:A lectin was isolated from the tuberous rhizome of Keampferia rotunda by using different chromatographic methods with the molecular weight of 21±1kDa. The lectin contained highest percentage of leucine and lowest percentage of tryptophan residues as determined by LC-MS. The lectin agglutinated mice and human erythrocytes and the hemagglutination activity was inhibited by Methyl-ß-d-galactopyranoside. The lectin did not lose its activity in the presence of urea but the activity abolished completely when treated with EDTA. The lectin exhibited its activity at the pH ranging from 6.0 to 9.0 and in a temperature range of 30-80°C. Antiproliferative activity was studied against Ehrlich ascites carcinoma (EAC) and U87 cell lines. No inhibitory effect was observed against U87 cell line whereas 43.7% cell growth inhibition was observed in vitro against EAC cells at 160µg/ml. The lectin was injected (i.p.) in EAC bearing Swiss albino mice at the doses of 3.0 and 6.0mg/kg/day for five consecutive days and 41 and 59% of EAC cell growth inhibition was observed, respectively. The cell growth inhibition was due to the induction of apoptosis in the EAC cells which was confirmed by cell morphological study, caspase-3 inhibitor and apoptosis-related gene expression.

[Ab] Abstract:OBJECTIVE: We present the case of a patient incidentally diagnosed with a pelvic mass next to the bladder. After surgical excision, definitive diagnosis was pseudomyxoma peritonei. We provide a concise review of the literature of this pathology. METHODS: A 55 year-old male patient, was found to have, in annual routine ultrasound, a pelvic retrovesical mass. CT guided needle aspirate showed a tumor with myxoid changes and low aggressive cytology. Surgical excision was performed. RESULTS: The excised mass contained the cecal appendix and ileal serosa. Pathology report was: mucinous cystadenoma of the appendix and pseudomyxoma peritonei. CONCLUSIONS: PMP is a local-regional disease within the abdomen, characterized by a mucinous tumor (mucocele) that produces a progressive amount of mucinous ascites, which eventually blows-out, and tumor cells are spread through the peritoneal cavity. Treatment options differ significantly, depending the stage of the disease.
