Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans is a rare condition which is frequently misdiagnosed at presentation, resulting in a high incidence of local recurrence due to inadequate resection. The archives of the Department of Orthopaedics at the University of Florida were analysed to investigate the natural history and results of treatment for this tumour. Between 1975 and 1996, 35 cases of DFSP were treated at the University of Florida. Of these, one was treated primarily, five were treated for local recurrence, 17 had tumour bed excisions following inadequate primary excisions elsewhere and 12 had tumour bed excisions following inadequate resection of local recurrences elsewhere. The data were analysed to assess the impact of age, gender, duration of symptoms, tumour site and size, surgical margin, number of operations and adjuvant treatments on survival and local recurrence outcomes. Complete follow-up was available for 34 patients. Mean follow-up was 58 months (range 12-144 months). Thirty-three patients remain alive and disease-free. One patient died of unrelated causes. The margins obtained were wide in 28 patients, marginal in six and intralesional in one. Of the seven patients with inadequate surgical margins, four received adjuva...Continue Reading

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.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.

Enzyme Evolution

This feed focuses on molecular models of enzyme evolution and new approaches (such as adaptive laboratory evolution) to metabolic engineering of microorganisms. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pharmacology of Proteinopathies

This feed focuses on the pharmacology of proteinopathies - diseases in which proteins abnormally aggregate (i.e. Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, etc.). Discover the latest research in this field with this feed.

Alignment-free Sequence Analysis Tools

Alignment-free sequence analyses have been applied to problems ranging from whole-genome phylogeny to the classification of protein families, identification of horizontally transferred genes, and detection of recombined sequences. Here is the latest research.
