To report a retrospective study evaluating the management of superficial urethral recurrence after ileal neobladder construction in patients with bladder cancer. In 77 consecutive patients with ileal neobladder after radical cystectomy for invasive bladder cancer, urethral recurrence was evaluated and transurethral resection (TUR) used as an initial treatment for superficial urethral recurrence. Urethrectomy with urinary re-diversion was performed when further recurrence developed. Four patients (5%) presented with a superficial urethral recurrence and all four were treated by TUR as initial therapy. One patient has had no evidence of recurrence after initial TUR, although the other three patients were later treated with salvage urethrectomy due to repeated urethral recurrence. As a result, the stage of urethral recurrence advanced from pTa to pT1-pT2 in two of the three patients. For urinary re-diversion, one patient had a conversion from a Studer pouch to an ileal conduit, using the afferent limb, and the other two were converted from a Hautmann pouch to a continent reservoir using the Appe-Mainz procedure. There was no evidence of metastasis or local recurrence in any of the four patients. Urethral preservation at initial th...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.

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.

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.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

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.
