Adult testicular granulosa cell tumors are rare sex cord-stromal tumors of which only 28 have been previously reported. As compared with their ovarian counterparts, these tumors may follow a more aggressive course because the proportion of malignant cases is higher. To date, there are no clinical or pathologic features that definitively predict malignancy.(More)
To investigate the inhibitory role of pterostilbene in pancreatic cancer, we conducted a genomic analysis of pterostilbene-treated pancreatic cancer cells. We also investigated the effect of pterostilbene upon the carcinogenic markers, manganese superoxide dismutase, cytochrome C, Smac/DIABLO, and STAT3 phosphorylation in vitro. The antiproliferative(More)
Gastrin exerts trophic effects on all cells of the gastric oxyntic mucosa including enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cells. Hypergastrinemia may result from hypoor achlorhydria due to chronic atrophic gastritis, from longterm drug-induced acid suppression or from gastrinoma occurring as part of the multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) 1 syndrome [1]. We describe(More)
Sudden death associated with perirenal hemorrhage, pulmonary congestion and edema, splenic enlargement and mottling, and hepatic congestion affected rapidly-growing, apparently healthy male turkeys. Concurrent lesions of other diseases occurred in some birds. No causative agent was identified by bacteriological examination.The number of diagnoses of this(More)
Eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EOGE) is a rare idiopathic disease characterized by eosinophil-predominant inflammation of the stomach and/or intestines. Our aims are to determine the epidemiology, clinical features and outcomes of EOGE cases in a tertiary-care hospital. Retrospective cohort study of patients with gastrointestinal eosinophilic infiltration(More)
Rhabdoid features in gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are rare. To the authors' knowledge, only 51 cases have been reported. Most of these reports consist of case series in which the rhabdoid GISTs comprise a small proportion of the tumors studied. Information regarding site of origin and clinical behavior is sparse. Although the stomach is the only(More)
This study tests the hypothesis that the right hemisphere is specialized for the processing of emotional information in children, as it is in adults. We compared the performance of eight children with right-hemisphere lesions and eight with left-hemisphere lesions on a test of facial affect recognition. The mean score of the right-hemisphere group fell(More)
Hepatocellular adenomas have recently been classified into four subtypes based on molecular findings: hepatocyte nuclear factor 1α (HNF1α) inactivated, inflammatory/telangiectatic, β-catenin activated, and unclassifiable. β-catenin-activated adenomas have the potential for malignant transformation and are thus important to recognize. Diffuse glutamine(More)
Seven horses with severe, persistent lameness of sudden onset were evaluated with scintigraphy and/or computed tomography. The lameness was localised to the front fetlock joint in 2 horses and to the tibiotarsal joint in 5 horses. Five of the horses had a history of intra-articular injections of the involved joint prior to presentation. All horses had(More)
