UNLABELLED Cystic lymphangiomas are benign tumors developing as an anomaly of the lymphatic channels. Most of them are discovered in children and are located mostly in the head and neck with no differences between sexes. Retroperitoneal locations are rare, clinical symptoms not specific and are discovered incidentally. We report the case of a 32-year-old(More)
The review pinpoints operational concepts related to the redox biology network applied to the pathophysiology and therapeutics of solid tumors. A sophisticated network of intrinsic and extrinsic cues, integrated in the tumor niche, drives tumorigenesis and tumor progression. Critical mutations and distorted redox signaling pathways orchestrate pathologic(More)
Prison populations are considered to be at high risk for tuberculosis infections, and many of the cases encountered have initiated while the individuals were in prison. There are also studies that have estimated the occupational risk of exposure and infection for hospital-based and correctional healthcare workers. To our knowledge, data on the incidence and(More)
Histopathological diagnosis using Formalin-Fixed Paraffin Embedded (FFPE) tissues is essential for the prognostic and therapeutic management of cancer patients. Pathologists are being confronted with increasing demands, from both clinicians and patients, to provide immunophenotypic and gene expression data from FFPE tissues to allow the planning of(More)
FAO Mapping the vulnerability of mountain peoples to food insecurity For millions of people living in mountainous areas, hunger and the threat of hunger are nothing new. Harsh climates and the difficult, often inaccessible terrain, combined with political and social marginality make mountain peoples vulnerable to food shortages. One in three mountain people(More)
Iron oxide nanoparticles are promising candidates for theranostics in cancer, that aims to achieve in one-step precise tumor imaging by magnetic resonance, and targeted therapy through surface attached anti-cancer drugs. The aim of this study was to investigate in preclinical setting the biocompatibility of new iron oxide-based nanoparticles that were(More)
Lymphomas represent malignant lymphoproliferative diseases and they are generally classified as Hodgkin's (HL) or non-Hodgkin malignant lymphomas (NHML). Head and neck lymphomas represent one of the most common sites of extranodal lymphomas, second after the gastrointestinal tract. Waldeyer's ring structures include the palatine tonsils, the nasopharyngeal(More)
The present study shows the histopathological and immunohistochemical aspects encountered in 49 benign tumors with neural origin diagnosed in the Pathology Department of the Emergency County Hospital of Craiova between 2000 and 2007. Histopathological criteria were used for the histopathological diagnosis, having been diagnosed 22 neurofibromas and 27(More)
The cellular immunoprofile of cardiac dysfunctions and lesions of ischemic etiology are insufficiently studied to date, especially regarding the contribution of non-cardiomyocytic structures. Aiming to explore this immunoprofile, we used immunohistochemistry applied on embryonic, fetal and adult normal or ischemic myocardium. We observed a decrease of(More)
This review emphasizes the role of oxidative stress in diabetic nephropathy, acting as trigger, modulator, and linker within the complex network of pathologic events. It highlights key molecular pathways and new hypothesis in diabetic nephropathy, related to the interferences of metabolic, oxidative, and inflammatory stresses. Main topics this review is(More)
