Induction of a chloracne phenotype in an epidermal equivalent model by 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) is dependent on aryl hydrocarbon receptor activation and is not reproduced by aryl hydrocarbon receptor knock down. (4/4)

 (+info)

Chloracne normally results from direct skin contact with chloracnegens, although ingestion and inhalation are also possible causative routes. Chloracnegens are fat-soluble, meaning they persist in the body fat for a very long period following exposure. Chloracne is a chronic inflammatory condition that results from this persistence, in combination with the toxins chemical properties. It is believed, at least from rodent models, that the toxin activates a series of receptors promoting macrophage proliferation, inducing neutrophilia and leading to a generalised inflammatory response in the skin. This process may also be augmented by induction of excess tumor necrosis factor in the blood serum. The inflammatory processes lead to the formation of keratinous plugs in skin pores, forming yellowish cysts and dark pustules. The associated pus is usually a color of green approximating that of a tennis ball. The skin lesions occur mainly in the face, but in more severe cases they involve the shoulders ...

OBJECTIVE--The aim was to examine the long term morbidity experience of men exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD). METHODS--A retrospective cohort morbidity study of 158 men first exposed to TCDD between 17 November 1953 and 16 November 1954 subdivided by chloracne state and back calculated TCDD blood lipid concentration, and 161 referents. Cause specific illness absence and admissions to hospital were examined between 1953 and 1989. RESULTS--On an ever or never basis, thyroid disease and appendicitis were diagnosed more often in the study group; these diseases were not differentially distributed by chloracne state, but were increased in the high TCDD subgroup. An 18% increase in total illness episodes was also seen (p = 0.002); illness rates increased with severity of chloracne and higher TCDD concentration within the chloracne subgroup. There were increases in infectious and parasitic diseases (primarily ill defined intestinal infections), disorders of the peripheral nervous ...

The management of differentiated thyroid cancer is becoming increasingly complex as clinicians and patients strive to develop individualized management plans designed to achieve excellent outcomes without subjecting the patients to excessive therapy or testing. The dramatic increase in the incidence of low risk papillary thyroid cancers has caused us to re-evaluate our traditional therapeutic approaches such that many low risk patients may be more than adequately treated with thyroid lobectomy (and even without immediate surgical intervention in selected patients). On the opposite end of the spectrum, advances in our understanding of the molecular biology of thyroid cancer and the success of several systemic therapy trials has opened up new avenues of therapy for high risk patients with advanced disease. Through a combination of lectures, panel discussions, and case-based presentations, we will examine the most important, and often controversial, management issues faced by clinicians across the ...

Vevey, Switzerland, November 2010 - Research into the nutrient needs of the older adult and the impact that malnutrition has on patient health status was shared at the Nestlé Nutrition Institute Satellite Symposium at the 32nd ESPEN Congress in Nice in September 2010. Prof. Sieber, Chief of Geriatrics at the Klinikum Nürnberg (Germany) and chairman of this symposium, addressed the need to focus on functionality rather than chronological or biological age.. Changing nutritional needs of the elderly Professor Dorothee Volkert, from the Institute for Biomedicine of Aging at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany), showed that nutrient needs vary with health, functional and nutritional status, physical activity and lifestyle. As people age, there is a reduction in lean body mass and the metabolic rate decreases as does physical activity, contributing to an overall reduction in energy needs. The German National Food Consumption Study showed that there is a reduction of energy intake of ...

Title: Busemann limits for a corner growth model with deterministic inhomogeneity Abstract: Busemann limits have become a useful tool in study of geodesics in percolation models. The properties of these limits are closely related to the curvature of the limit shapes in the associated growth models. In this talk, we will consider a corner growth model (CGM) with independent exponential weights. The rates of the exponentials are deterministic and inhomogeneous across columns and rows. (An equivalent model is the TASEP with step initial condition and with particlewise and holewise deterministic disorder). In particular, the model lacks stationarity. Under mild assumptions on the rates, the limit shape in our CGM exists, is concave and can develop flat regions only near the axes. In contrast, flat regions can only occur away from the axes in the CGM with general i.i.d. weights. This feature and stationarity have been instrumental in proving the existence of the Busemann limits in past work. We will ...

We evaluated the response to salt restriction in hypertensive patients receiving drugs. By restricting their salt intake to less than 80 mmol of sodium per day for 3 months, 50% of patients reaching goal compliance were able to discontinue diuretics. The literature also reveals responses to a low salt diet. Salt restriction augmented the hypotensive effect of chlorthalidone in two investigations, but not in another, and the hypotensive effect of beta-blockers in three trials. Sodium intake of 10 mmol/day caused a much greater decrease in blood pressure in response to a single dose of captopril than did a sodium diet of 200 mmol/day. In patients receiving various fixed regimens for 2 months, salt restriction decreased blood pressure in all but those receiving calcium blockers. A single dose of nifedipine lowered blood pressure more in patients receiving 350 mmol of sodium per day than in the same patients given 150 or 10 mmol/day. Verapamil for 3 days was more effective in patients receiving 212 ...

Nutricia Satellite Symposia give healthcare professionals access to the latest scientific developments in the field of medical nutrition.
The landscape of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) management has changed dramatically in recent years with the approval of new agents. The availability of these agents, along with data updates on their efficacy and safety, has complicated RCC treatment planning in terms of therapeutic selection and sequencing, toxicity management, and dose/schedule optimization. Additionally, positive results from studies of novel single-agent and combination therapies, biomarkers, and approved agents in new lines of therapy suggest more changes are on the horizon in RCC management. To help clinicians in their day-to-day practices, this case-based satellite symposium will broach a variety of clinical scenarios at key junctures in care, with the understanding that real-world scenarios cannot always be bucketed neatly into simple "lines of therapy." The format of this activity will provide the audience with an opportunity to interact with the expert faculty panel and to reflect on how they arrive at the decisions they ...
CML Headlines Working Towards a Cure in CML - Breakfast Satellite Symposium - CBMTG - April 2012, Toronto, Ontario - preview of Canadian CML Guidelines
Information on chloracne, a skin condition VA recognizes in Veterans as associated with Agent Orange exposure during military service.
2,3,7,8 Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), a ubiquitous environmental toxin, has been shown to cause a human skin pathology called chloracne. The majority of laboratory mouse strains, with the exception of mice bearing a mutation in thehairless gene, fail to display overt signs of chloracne upon exposure to TCDD. As a result, only minimal data exist on the effects of TCDD in adult haired mice and no data exist on the effects of TCDD in developing mouse skin. Here we report that TCDD affects the temporal expression of protein markers of keratinocyte terminal differentiation during murine skin morphogenesis. Immunohistochemical analysis of E16 mice reveals accelerated expression of the intermediate filament-associated protein filaggrin in response to TCDD. At a later developmental time and after birth, expression of filaggrin and loricrin is indistinguishable between treatment and control groups. At E16 expression of keratins 5, 6, and 10 are unaltered in TCDD-exposed individuals and TUNEL ...
At the present time, the only persistent effect associated with dioxin exposure in humans is chloracne. Other health effects that have been reported include peripheral neuropathies, fatigue, depression, personality changes, hepatitis, enlarged liver, abnormal enzyme levels and porphyria cutanea tarda though no causal relationships were established in every case. Results of a study on 1,520 workers known to have been exposed to 2,3,7,8-TCDD for a period of at least one year, and with a latency of at least twenty years between exposure and diagnosis of disease, revealed a slightly, but significantly elevated mortality from soft tissue sarcoma and cancers of the respiratory system. As with other studies, interpretation of results was limited by the small number of deaths and by possible confounders including smoking and other occupational exposures. Two recent studies followed a young population from the area of the Seveso, Italy industrial accident. The first, a cancer study, examined a cohort of ...
If you have recently received a favorable decision from the VA on your Agent Orange claim, you may think that the long fight with the VA is over. But before you decide not to appeal the decision, you will want to be sure that the VA got both the disability rating and the effective date correct. Perhaps the most complicated issue when it comes to Agent Orange-related claims are the special effective date rules (found in 38 C.F.R. 3.816) that apply to some veterans as a result of the Nehmer class action lawsuit. Note that the special Nehmer effective dates apply only to veterans who served on the landmass of Vietnam or its inland waterways (hopefully soon to include Da Nang Harbor).. Before we discuss the Nehmer effective date rules, it is helpful to understand the basics of the Nehmer class action itself. The lawsuit was filed in 1986 (and certified as a class action in 1987) to challenge a VA regulation from 1985 which gave presumptive status to chloracne claims only. In 1989, the court ...

In many industrial domains, numerical simulation has been adopted as a primary tool for optimizing processes and devices. However, the simulation of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatments presents specific challenges. Thus, modeling the lesion creation process remains complex in many clinically relevant situations, where cavitation or boiling occur [1]. In these cases, where the influence of the bubble cloud cannot be directly simulated, equivalent models have to be developed [1, 2]. Beyond their predictive capability, which is by nature restricted, they aim at producing a "useful understanding" [1] by identifying the main physical phenomena shaping the lesion. In this context, this paper describes a rigorous approach for designing, calibrating, and validating an equivalent model to simulate the in situ temperature field.. Acoustic simulation of HIFU beams has been greatly studied during the past decades, and several wave equations have been derived, such as the widely used ...
Self-learning equivalent-convolutional neural structures (SLECNS) for auto-coding-decoding and image clustering are discussed. The SLECNS architectures and their spatially invariant equivalent models (SI EMs) using the corresponding matrix-matrix procedures with basic operations of continuous logic and non-linear processing are proposed. These SI EMs have several advantages, such as the ability to recognize image fragments with better efficiency and strong cross correlation. The proposed clustering method of fragments with regard to their structural features is suitable not only for binary, but also color images and combines self-learning and the formation of weight clustered matrix-patterns. Its model is constructed and designed on the basis of recursively processing algorithms and to k-average method. The experimental results confirmed that larger images and 2D binary fragments with a large numbers of elements may be clustered. For the first time the possibility of generalization of these ...
3,3,4,4-Tetrachloroazobenzene is not commercially manufactured but is present as a contaminant of 3,4-dichloroaniline and its herbicidal derivatives Propanil, Linuron, and Diuron (Sundstrom et al., 1978; Bunce et al., 1979; Carey et al., 1980; Hill et al., 1981). In addition, environmental contamination occurs when TCAB is formed by the photolysis and biolysis of 3,4-dichloroaniline. TCAB was nominated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency for toxicity testing, based on concerns over the potential for human exposure, the structural resemblance to the potent immunotoxic and carcinogenic agent 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin, and reports that TCAB demonstrated dioxin-like effects (van Birgelen et al., 1999). The toxicity of TCAB was evaluated in 13-week gavage studies in male and female F344/N rats and B6C3F1 mice (van Birgelen et al., 1999; NTP, 1998). Results of these studies demonstrated decreased thymus weights, thymic atrophy, and macrocytic anemia in male and female rats ...
You probably havent heard anything about this group of toxic chemicals for almost six years. Formed during combustion processes such as waste incineration, theyre known to increase the likelihood of cancer after long-term low level exposure. At higher levels, dioxins can be disfiguring or deadly. It was six years ago that the world first saw a clear example of the damage that dioxins can cause. The face of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko was heavily scarred, the effect of a chloracne outbreak after suspected dioxin poisoning. He might have been poisoned with as little as a drop and significant amounts of poison could remain in his system for the rest of his life. Wikipedia paints a much scarier portrait of the 70+ isomers of highly toxic, man-made organic compounds. Byproducts of some industrial processes and waste incineration, "dioxins are fat-soluble, so they tend to accumulate in the tissues of the animals who encounter them and it can take many years for the compounds to ...

New CMPA awareness tool developed for primary healthcare professionals to make informed earlier assessments. Vevey, Switzerland - Experts speaking at ESPGHAN1 in May 2015 shared research showing that appropriate management of cows milk protein allergy (CMPA) - one the most commonly occurring food allergies in infants and young children2,3 - is usually delayed by months before an accurate diagnosis is made by pediatric specialists and a therapeutic elimination diet is prescribed, usually consisting of a hypoallergenic extensively hydrolyzed formula.. Speaking at the Nestlé Nutrition Institute Satellite Symposium "Cows Milk Protein Allergy: How can we improve standards of care in Pediatric Practice", Professor Vandenplas, of the Brussels Academic Hospital, said: "Only in a minority of cases does the child have an immediate reaction to cows milk which makes CMPA easy to identify; but in the majority of cases, due to the genuine challenges facing primary healthcare professionals interpreting the ...
article{cc46aab3-9097-4281-9882-554963bfe958, abstract = {Protein C (PC), a 62 kDa multi-modular zymogen, is activated to an anticoagulant serine protease (activated PC or APC) by thrombin bound to thrombomodulin on the surface of endothelial cells. PC/APC interacts with many proteins and the characterisation of these interactions is not trivial. However, molecular modelling methods help to study these complex biological processes and provide basis for rational experimental design and interpretation of the results. PC/APC consists of a Gla domain followed by two EGF modules and a serine protease domain. In this report, we present two structural models for full-length APC and two equivalent models for full-length PC, based on the X-ray structures of Gla-domainless APC and of known serine protease zymogens. The overall elongated shape of the models is further cross-validated using size exclusion chromatography which allows evaluation of the Stokes radius (rs for PC = 33.15 A; rs for APC = 34.19 ...

Context: Prostate cancer (PCa) cells are characterised by an exquisite tropism for the bone, which translates into one of the highest rates of bone metastases and skeletal morbidity. New, effective treatments have emerged from a better understanding of the physiopathology of bone metastases. Objective: To summarise current insights and future perspectives in the therapy of PCa-induced bone disease. Evidence acquisition: This manuscript is based on presentations given at a satellite symposium held at the 2nd World Congress on Controversies in Urology (CURy) in Lisbon, Portugal. Data were retrieved from original and recent review papers on PCa-induced bone disease. Evidence synthesis: In normal, healthy bone, there is a balance between bone resorption and bone formation through the coordinated activity of osteoclasts and osteoblasts. The receptor activator of nuclear factor-kappa B ligand (RANKL) is an essential mediator of osteoclast formation, function, and survival. The RANKL pathway represents ...
