Keratin particle-induced osteolysis: a mouse model of inflammatory bone remodeling related to cholesteatoma. (1/27)

We implanted keratin and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) particles to the surface of mouse calvariae to produce a quantitative, localized, inflammatory bone remodeling similar to that seen in cholesteatoma. Both types of particles resulted in increased osteoclast density compared with controls. Osteoclasts infiltrated from marrow and vascular spaces and were active at the periphery of these spaces leading to significant bone remodeling, as demonstrated by the incorporation of bone-labelling fluorophores. Osteoclasts were rarely found on the surface of the calvariae, and mineral apposition rate at the ventral surface was not altered in keratin-implanted animals compared with nonoperated controls. While not useful for the study of the root cause of cholesteatoma, this model will allow the study ofpathologic bone remodeling related to cholesteatoma in a genetically defined animal.  (+info)

First isolation of Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron from a patient with a cholesteatoma and experiencing meningitis. (3/27)

A 45-year-old man with a cholesteatoma experienced purulent meningitis. Microbial analysis of cerebrospinal fluid yielded in pure culture a gram-negative bacillus. Phenotypic methods were suggestive of a Bacteroides distasonis or either a Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron or Bacteroides ovatus infection. The isolate was identified by 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis as B. thetaiotaomicron. This is the first case of B. thetaiotaomicron meningitis in pure culture.  (+info)

Suppressive activity of vitamin D3 on matrix metalloproteinase production from cholesteatoma keratinocytes in vitro. (4/27)

There is much evidence that degradation of the extracellular matrix is essential for the development of cholesteatomas and that this is induced by activation of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). Vitamin D3 (VD3) has several well-recognised biological activities, including suppression of MMP production. The present study, therefore, was undertaken to examine whether VD3 could suppress MMP production from cholesteatoma keratinocytes in vitro. Keratinocytes (2.5 x 10(5) cells/mL) induced from cholesteatoma tissue specimens were cultured with various concentrations of VD3. After one hour, lipopolysaccharide was added to the cell cultures at 100 mug/mL. The culture supernatants were then collected and assayed for MMP-1 and MMP-3 by ELISA. We also used ELISA to measure the levels of both TIMP (tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase)-1 and TIMP-2 in culture supernatants. Addition of VD3 into keratinocyte cultures caused the suppression of MMP and TIMP production, which was increased by LPS stimulation. This was dose-dependent. The present results showing the suppressive activity of VD3 on the production of MMPs, which are responsible for tissue remodeling, strongly suggest that VD3 would be a good candidate for an agent in the medical treatment of, or prophylaxis for, cholesteatomas.  (+info)

Cholesteatoma of external auditory canal: a case report. (5/27)

The authors present a case of cholesteatoma of external auditory canal (CEAC) with extensive invasion of mastoid; ossicle chain and tympanic membrane remained intact. The only symptom was chronic otorrhea. Diagnosis was based on clinical elements and CT scan was used to measure pathology and program surgery. Treatment was modified radical mastoidectomy associated with meatoplasty. Due to the insidious character of CEAC and the proximity with important structures of the external auditory canal, it must be always considered in differential diagnosis for lesions of external auditory canal. This case report intended to review clinical and surgical aspects of treatment of CEAC and present our approach in a case with severe lesions.  (+info)

Growth of cholesteatoma by implantation of epithelial tissue along the femoral bone of rats. (6/27)

Cholesteatoma is a well-known infection resembling a pearl. Its histological aspect is of an epidermal cyst formation characterized by epidermal-keratinized tissue in the middle ear and mastoid that can migrate and erode to adjacent structures. AIM: To verify epidermal cyst (cholesteatoma) growth through implantation of auricular skin of a mouse next to its femoral bone. STUDY DESIGN: Experimental. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Ten healthy rats between two and five months of age and of both sexes underwent implantation of auricular skin on the femoral bone during a three-month period. Paraffin-embedded sections were obtained from the sample and stained with hematoxylin and eosin for pathology investigation. RESULTS: Macroscopic view: round soft yellowish granulation tissue. Microscopic view: keratinizing stratified squamous epithelium cystic formation. The cyst presented innermost corneal layer, resulted from keratinized skin, followed by granulated and squamous layers, and outermost basal layer. CONCLUSIONS: Growth of epidermal cyst (cholesteatoma) may start from a transplanted epithelial tissue next to the femoral bone of rats.  (+info)

Readout-segmented EPI for rapid high resolution diffusion imaging at 3 T. (7/27)

Readout mosaic segmentation has been suggested as an alternative approach to EPI for high resolution diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI). In the readout-segmented EPI (RS-EPI) scheme, segments of k-space are acquired along the readout direction. This reduces geometric distortions due to the decrease in readout time. In this work, further distortion reduction is achieved by combining RS-EPI with parallel imaging (PI). The performance of the PI-accelerated RS-EPI scheme is assessed in volunteers and patients at 3T with respect to both standard EPI and PI-accelerated EPI. Peripherally cardiac gated and non-gated RS-EPI images are acquired to assess whether motion due to brain pulsation significantly degrades the image quality. Due to the low off-resonance of PI-driven RS-EPI, we also investigate if the eddy currents induced by the diffusion gradients are low enough to use the Stejskal-Tanner diffusion preparation instead of the twice-refocused eddy-current compensated diffusion preparation to reduce TE. It is shown that non-gated phase corrected DWI performs equally as well as gated acquisitions. PI-driven DW RS-EPI images with substantially less distortion compared with single-shot EPI are shown in patients-allowing the delineation of structures in the lower parts of the brain. A twice-refocused diffusion preparation was found necessary to avoid blurring in the DWI data. This paper shows that the RS-EPI scheme may be an important alternative sampling strategy to EPI to achieve high resolution T2-weighted and diffusion-weighted images.  (+info)

Congenital cholesteatoma extending into the internal auditory canal and cochlea: a case report. (8/27)

We report here on a case of congenital cholesteatoma that extended into the internal auditory meatus and cochlea. A 17-year-old boy underwent surgery for a very large cholesteatoma, which was discovered behind an intact tympanic membrane. Pure tone audiometry revealed an unresponsive ear. High resolution temporal bone computed tomography showed perilabyrinthine extension with its absence in the vestibular area, and destruction of the bony cochlea at the basal turn, the tegmen and the posterior cranial fossa. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed no intracranial extension. Surgical exploration of the middle ear and the mastoid cavity revealed that both the vestibule and the basal turn of the cochlea were filled with a noninfected cholesteatoma. The cholesteatoma extended into the internal auditory meatus through translabyrinthine destruction; it extended into the basal turn of the cochlea through the infralabyrinthine route. The bony segment of the facial nerve canal demonstrated near total dehiscence. The cholesteatoma was removed by the transotic approach. Congenital cholesteatoma is characterized by no specific history. Therefore, early detection of this malady can be challenging, but it is important to prevent such complications as were observed in this reported case.  (+info)

Single-shot echo-planar imaging has been used widely in diffusion magnetic resonance imaging due to the difficulties in correcting motion-induced phase corruption in multishot data. Readout-segmented EPI has addressed the multishot problem by introducing a two-dimensional nonlinear navigator correction with online reacquisition of uncorrectable data to enable acquisition of high-resolution diffusion data with reduced susceptibility artifact and T*(2) blurring. The primary shortcoming of readout-segmented EPI in its current form is its long acquisition time (longer than similar resolution single-shot echo-planar imaging protocols by approximately the number of readout segments), which limits the number of diffusion directions. By omitting readout segments at one side of k-space and using partial Fourier reconstruction, readout-segmented EPI imaging times could be reduced. In this study, the effects of homodyne and projection onto convex sets reconstructions on estimates of the fractional anisotropy, mean
Until recently, clinically useful diffusion-weighted imaging of the spine has not been possible using standard single shot EPI techniques, due to susceptibility artifacts and the need for higher spatial resolution. The novel 2D-navigator-corrected readout-segmented EPI sequence known as RESOLVE provides images with higher spatial resolution and markedly reduced distortion of the spine related to susceptibility artifacts..

Abstract Conclusion: The detection of the HER4 receptor in 50% of cholesteatomas but never in the reference tissue, and the increased expression of its activating ligand EPI, suggest that EPI-mediated activation of HER4 might play a role in cholesteatoma growth. Objective: To investigate the expression of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) system in human middle ear cholesteatoma. Methods: Forty-seven patients referred for surgery due to cholesteatoma were included in the study. Clinical data were collected. Biopsies of cholesteatoma and skin from the external ear canal were obtained during surgery. mRNA expression was quantified with real-time PCR. The corresponding proteins were visualized using immunohistochemistry. Results: A systematic investigation of all four receptors, HER1, HER2, HER3, and HER4, and the ligands EGF, transforming growth factor (TGF)-α, amphiregulin (AR), heparin-binding EGF-like growth factor (HB-EGF), and epiregulin (EPI) of the EGF system is presented.

Although middle-ear cholesteatoma is a major topic in otological research, its etiology and pathogenesis remain unclear. Pediatric cholesteatoma is considered more aggressive than adult cholesteatoma, as it has a higher rate of growth, is more often infected and exhibits wider extension. Higher incidence of residual and recurrent disease after surgical treatment of pediatric cholesteatoma has been observed in most studies. In this study, the results are presented from a canal wall down (CWD) obliteration technique used in 330 adult patients (Paper I) with cholesteatoma, evaluated at 1, 3 and 6 years following surgery. Additionally, results are offered from 57 pediatric patients (Paper II) using identical surgical technique and compared with adults. The surgical and hearing outcomes in both groups showed a low incidence of residual and recurrent disease and a high rate of ear water resistance without infection. The results were unrelated to the severity and extension of disease, as well as to age ...
The majority (98%) of people with cholesteatoma have ear discharge or conductive hearing loss, or both, in the affected ear.[citation needed] Other more common conditions (e.g. otitis externa) may also present with these symptoms, but cholesteatoma is much more serious and should not be overlooked. If a patient presents to a doctor with ear discharge and hearing loss, the doctor should consider cholesteatoma until the disease is definitely excluded. Other less common symptoms (all less than 15%) of cholesteatoma may include pain, balance disruption, tinnitus, earache, headaches and bleeding from the ear. There can also be facial nerve weakness. Balance symptoms in the presence of a cholesteatoma raise the possibility that the cholesteatoma is eroding the balance organs in the inner ear. Doctors initial inspections may only reveal an ear canal full of discharge. Until the doctor has cleaned the ear and inspected the entire tympanic membrane, cholesteatoma cannot be diagnosed. Once the debris is ...

Hearing preservation is, of course, a major concern but should not take precedence over removing the invasive tumor. Most patients who undergo surgery for cholesteatoma are able to maintain or improve their hearing at a subsequent operation for reconstruction of the bones of hearing. However, individuals may not be candidates for further reconstructive surgery if irreversible changes took place in the ear due to the disease. A hearing aid fitting will usually be considered in this situation.. In some instances (less than 1% of operations for cholesteatomas), complete hearing can be lost at the time of surgery or during the healing process. This loss may be due to erosion of the window connecting the middle ear to the inner ear via the invasion of the cholesteatoma, or infection passing through this defect.. The ear drum is generally repaired at the time of surgery by inserting a grafted, new ear drum taken from tissue behind the ear over the skull. In most cases, this new grafted ear drum heals. ...

Cholesteatoma is a destructive and expanding growth of keratinizing squamous epithelium in the middle ear or petrous apex. The molecular and cellular processes of the pathogenesis of acquired middle ear cholesteatoma have not been fully understood. In this study, comparative proteomic analysis was conducted to investigate the roles of specific proteins in the pathways regarding keratinocyte proliferation in cholesteatoma. The differential proteins were detected by comparing the two-dimension electrophoresis (2-DE) maps of the epithelial tissues of 12 attic cholesteatomas with those of retroauricular skins. There were 14 upregulated proteins in the epithelial tissues of cholesteatoma in comparison with retroauricular skin. The modulation of five crucial proteins, HSP27, PRDX2, GRP75, GRP78 and GRP94, was further determined by RT-PCR, Western blot and immunohistochemistry. Phosphorylation of HSP27 at Ser-82 was identified by mass spectroscopy. The results of this study suggested that phosphorylated HSP27

Cholesteatomas actively erode bone because they contain enzymes which are activated by moisture. In time, cholesteatomas will eventually erode the bone leading into the inner ear. This can cause nerve loss and deafness as well as severe imbalance and dizziness. The thin plate of bone that separates the roof of the ear from the brain can also be eroded by cholesteatomas. This exposes the covering of the brain. In extreme situations, it can lead to brain infection and other severe complications. For the possible origins of cholesteatomas, please click here..

Cholesteatoma can be a birth defect (congenital). It more commonly occurs as a result of chronic ear infection. The eustachian tube helps equalize pressure in the middle ear. When it is not working well, negative pressure can build up and pull part of the eardrum (tympanic membrane) inward. This creates a pocket or cyst that fills with old skin cells and other waste material. The cyst may become infected or get bigger. This can cause the breakdown of some of the middle ear bones or other structures of the ear. This can affect hearing, balance, and possibly the function of the facial muscles. ...

In less extensive cholesteatomas, especially when infection is well controlled before surgery, an intact canal wall operation may be the favoured procedure. This operation preserves the wall between the middle ear and mastoid. The principal advantages of the intact canal wall operation are a more normal canal and ear drum, and a greater possibility of hearing restoration. In addition, most patients with the intact canal wall operation can allow water in the ear. The chief disadvantage of the intact canal wall operation is that a regrowth of cholesteatoma may not be evident. Thus, many ear surgeons will delay rebuilding the bones of hearing for a year after an intact canal wall operation for cholesteatoma. The ear drum is opened at the second operation and the bones of hearing are then reconstructed. If a regrowth of cholesteatoma is found, the disease is again removed and reconstruction may be delayed for another 6 months or a year. Repeat CT scans may also be performed in some cases to avoid ...

Important information about its function in hematopoiesis has been gained through mice with targeted gene disruption of Flt3 (4) or Flt3 ligand (Flt3L; 5), through in vivo Flt3L injection (6-8) and through overexpression of Flt3L (9, 10) or introduction of constitutively active flt3 mutations (11) in hematopoietic cells. Flt3−/− mice show normal peripheral blood counts, however, pro-B cell numbers are diminished and bone marrow progenitors of these mice display a reduced ability to competitively reconstitute lethally conditioned recipients, most pronounced in the T and myeloid lineages (4). Flt3L−/− mice show no significant changes in red blood cells and platelets but 27-45% decreased numbers of complete nucleated cells in peripheral blood, bone marrow, spleen, and lymph nodes, most marked in relative lymphocyte numbers (5). In addition, the total numbers of ...
Oncogenic activation of neu can occur through overexpression, point mutation, or deletion of the extracellular domain (7, 61). Similar to the murine MMTV-neu model of mammary tumorigenesis, in primary human breast cancers, the overexpression of ErbB-2 (64) and the recent identification of an in-frame deletion of a portion of the extracellular domain of ErbB-2 (62) suggest an important role for ErbB-2 in induction and progression of human breast tumors. The present studies identify for the first time the role of a rate-limiting component of the cell cycle in transformation by Neu in mammary adenocarcinoma cells in vivo. Cyclin D1 abundance and kinase activity were increased in mammary gland tumors from MMTV-neu and MMTV-NDL transgenic animals. The activating ECD mutations of Neu induced cyclin D1 promoter activity in MCF7 cells in a manner that corresponded well with their transforming capacity in Rat-1 cells (61). Cyclin D1 antisense inhibited neuT-induced transformation in a dose-dependent ...
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is an intracellular organelle for protein folding, lipid synthesis and Ca2+ storage. It also is responsible for transporting most secreted and transmembrane proteins to their proper cellular locations. ER undergoes stress when the protein load exceeds its folding capacity, and cellular signaling cascades are activated as unfolded protein response (UPR). GRP78 is a major chaperone assisting protein folding, as well as a master regulator of UPR signaling. In this thesis, we discovered that heterozygosity of Grp78 enhances energy expenditure through upregulation of mitochondria activity, and alleviate high fat diet (HFD)-induced obesity and type 2 diabetes in mouse. The latter is also achieved through increase in insulin sensitivity in the white adipose tissue (WAT) of HFD-fed Grp78+/- mice, with adaptive UPR improving ER folding capacity and quality control. This mechanism is validated through overexpression of the active form of ATF6, a transcription factor known to ...
Herein, we provide evidence for a Rab-dependent mechanism for regulating VEGFR2 trafficking and signaling from endosomes in primary endothelial cells. Manipulation of GTPase activity through overexpression of GFP-tagged wild-type or mutant Rab7a proteins perturbed endothelial VEGFR2 trafficking, degradation, and signaling. Intriguingly, Rab7a depletion decreased VEGFR2 tyrosine autophosphorylation on residue Y1175, a characteristic signature in VEGFR2-mediated activation and signaling.32 This correlated with ≈50% decrease in VEGF-A-stimulated endothelial cell migration after Rab7a depletion, suggesting a requirement for Rab7a in VEGFR2-mediated signaling. However, in Rab7a-depleted cells, there was increased p42/44 MAPK levels 30 minutes after VEGF-A addition, suggesting increased signaling through this arm of the pathway. A likely explanation is that VEGFR2-regulated signaling to p42/p44 MAPK occurs at the early endosome and is prolonged in Rab7a-depleted cells as VEGFR2 cannot progress ...

When Debra was diagnosed with a cholesteatoma, she knew it wasnt good. After all, she had a very invasive and very destructive tumor in her right ear. I went from being able to partially hear in my right ear to being totally deaf in my right ear. I missed out so much on conversations even when they were right in front of me. The Baha System has been life-changing for me. For the first time in my life, I can hear in stereo. I can hear on both sides, and I can hear people talking to me even if there is noise in the background. I am looking forward to richer relationships - richer interactions with friends and family. And now, Im excited because I dont have to miss out on anything anymore.. ...

Epiregulin (EPR) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the EREG gene. Epiregulin consists of 46 amino acid residues. Its secondary structure contains approximately 30 percent of β-sheet in the strand. Some of the residues form loops and turns due to the hydrogen bonding. The percentage of β-sheet in epiregulin depends on the domain and the secondary structures that they occupy. The polymeric molecules of epiregulin has the formula weight of 5280.1 g/mol with a polypeptide(L), a polymer type. Structural motifs in most proteins have typical connections in an all β motif. Meaning that the polypeptide chains do not make a crossover connection or in so far as this type of connection has not been observed. Epiregulin is one of the proteins that occupies a typical connection in all β motif. Furthermore, as the structure of epiregulin forms a chain in an all β motif, it also forms β hairpin structural motif. A β hairpin is when the two adjacent anti-parallel β strands connected by a β-turn. ...
The external auditory canal (EAC) is an unusual location for a cholesteatoma. We present the cases of 2 patients with EAC cholesteatoma who experienced extensive damage that extended from the inferior EAC wall to the infratemporal area; there was no mastoid involvement. In both cases, the cholesteatomas were removed under local anesthesia and the inferior canal wall was reconstructed with a technique that involved the placement of a pedicled musculoperiosteal flap, a cartilage graft, and a full-thickness skin graft. This simple procedure preserves a normal EAC contour, middle ear space, and mastoid cavity.. ...

The basic philosophy of cholesteatoma was equated biologically to a sort of a tumor-if you take it out completely you have cured the disease- was this a true axiom? how about retraction of the Tympanic membrane recurring? Indeed with time these concepts were found to be somewhat naive because of the often dynamic and ongoing nature of retraction pockets and cholesteatoma. As the debates became more and more involved some of us came forward with the notion that we should meet more often periodically - not just for the sake of surgical exercise - but mainly to bring forwards our data and results of our surgical follow ups for discussion. It was this need i.e to analyze every possible detail and theoretical concepts which may lead us to exercise an optimal medical and surgical treatment of our patients - which formed the impetus and the idea for the formation of the Politzer Society. Most involved in promoting the idea of forming such an academic forum were Gordon Smyth, David Austin and Jacob ...

This study aimed to figure out the underlying mechanism of miR-142-5p in the non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Bioinformatics, luciferase assay and Western blot were performed. The NASH mouse model was established through feeding a high fat diet (HFD). Relative expressions of miR-142-5p, thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP), inflammatory factors were detected by qRT-PCR. The injury level of liver was assessed via measurement of serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and serum aspartate aminotransferase (AST). H&E staining and Masson’s trichrome staining examine the liver fatty degeneration and fibrosis. MiR-142-5p and TSLP were differentially expressed and JAK-STAT signaling pathway was activated in the NASH group. Luciferase assay identified that TSLP was the downstream target of miR-142-5p. Through overexpression of miR-142-5p, ALT and AST in serum were inhibited, pro-inflammatory factors, liver fatty degeneration and fibrosis in liver tissues were decreased, while anti
The EGFR pathway has been an attractive target because it is dysregulated in a significant fraction of malignant gliomas through overexpression, amplification, and activating mutations (Rich et al., 2004). Moreover, recent studies have demonstrated that EGFRvIII is required for tumor maintenance in glioma (Mukasa et al., 2010). The EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor gefitinib has been evaluated in a number of clinical trials for GBM; however, results have been disappointing (Rich et al., 2004; Lieberman et al., 2004). The failure of gefitinib raises questions pertaining to delivery of drug to its target. Active efflux at the BBB could prevent drugs from attaining therapeutic levels in the brain and is probably one of the main reasons behind resistance to chemotherapy. It has been shown that several other tyrosine kinase inhibitors are avid substrates for P-gp and BCRP and that their brain distribution is limited due to active efflux out of the brain (Dai et al., 2003; Chen et al., 2009; Lagas et ...

I was diagnosed with a petrous apex cholesteatoma in June this year after spending a week in hospital. I had a battery of tests as well as numerous CT and MRI scans. My symptoms include extreme headaches, nausea, pins and needles and numbness to the left side of my face, weeping left eye and sometimes blurred vision. It is difficult to perform the normal daily functions when I get the symptoms. The petrous apex is located in the center of the head approximately 2-3 inches from the outside of your ear. It is one of the most inaccessible areas to reach in the skull. The petrous apex can have lesions and tumors within it. The most common type of lesion is a petrous apex fluid filled cyst. The surgery is very extensive and rarely performed in South Africa as this is an extremely rare condition. The area that it is located in, requires you to go in between the carotid artery, jugular vein and cochlear. Between 1983 and 2004, 43 patients were treated in USA. There is a Prof. Marco Caversaccio in ...
The mastoid bone contains cells that hold air (called air cells). Problems occur when an ear infection spreads to the air cells. Skin cells may also build up in an infected ear. These skin cells can form a growth (called a cholesteatoma). This growth can destroy nearby bone. If not treated, mastoid bone problems may cause deafness, facial nerve damage, dizziness, brain infection, or even death. ...
