Brunner's gland adenoma with a focus of p53-positive atypical glands

Journal of Gastroenterology

A submucosal tumor was resected endoscopically from the duodenal bulb in a 43-year-old man complaining of epigastric discomfort. The tumor, measuring 22 x 20 x 19mm, consisted mainly of Brunner's glands with no atypia. However, close histologic examination disclosed a focus of glands with cellular and structural atypia. The atypical glands showed staining by periodic acid-Schiff, alcian blue, and high iron-diamine methods. Mucin histochemistry was examined, and the atypical glands resembled the excretory ducts rather than the acinar cells of the tumor. Immunohistochemically, positivity for MIB-1 was high (38.0%), and p53-positive cells were detected sporadically in the atypical glands. These results indicated that the atypical glands probably represented a neoplastic lesion. Brunner's gland adenomas associated with foci of true neoplasm are very rare; only two cases, including one patient with microcarcinoid tumors, have been reported.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
