Acute tubulointerstitial nephritis and uveitis (TINU) syndrome is a rare disease usually having a good prognosis. But the recurrence of uveitis and the chronic progression of kidney injury are still main problems. We report a 15-year-old girl with TINU who showed proteinuria, pathological renal change, multiple organ dysfunction, and immune disorders. After 2 months of 1 mg/kg/day corticosteroid therapy, 24-h urine protein, liver function tests, and creatine kinase returned to normal level. In spite of this, steroid was tapered off slowly and small dose of steroid maintenance therapy lasted for 1 year. Her kidney and ocular symptoms did not recur during 5 years of follow-up. We suggest low-dose steroid maintenance therapy to decrease the recurrence of the TINU syndrome.

In the training cohort (n = 167), MYC and BCL2 proteins were detected in 29% and 44% of patients, respectively. Concurrent expression (MYC positive/BCL2 positive) was present in 21% of patients. MYC protein correlated with presence of high MYC mRNA and MYC translocation (both P < .001), but the latter was less frequent (both 11%). MYC protein expression was only associated with inferior overall and progression-free survival when BCL2 protein was coexpressed (P < .001). Importantly, the poor prognostic effect of MYC positive/BCL2 positive was validated in an independent cohort of 140 patients with DLBCL and remained significant (P < .05) after adjusting for presence of high-risk features in a multivariable model that included elevated international prognostic index score, activated B-cell molecular subtype, and presence of concurrent MYC and BCL2 translocations.

Elevated RA disease activity during pregnancy should be avoided because it is associated with rapid postnatal catch-up in weight, a risk factor for a worse cardiovascular and metabolic profile in adults. Medication for RA during pregnancy, including prednisone, had no effect on growth. Continuation or extension of medication will not only improve maternal health during pregnancy, but could be beneficial for the future health of the unborn child.

A 42-year-old woman underwent bilateral lung transplantation for severe bronchiectasis. Her immunosuppressive regimen consisted of azathioprine, prednisone, and tacrolimus. She acutely developed an aggressive form of PRES that rapidly resulted in severe refractory intracranial hypertension despite discontinuation of potentially causative medications and adequate supportive therapy. Accordingly, second-tier therapies, including barbiturate infusion, were instituted and immunosuppression was switched to anti-thymocyte globulin followed by mycophenolate mofetil. Within 10 h of barbiturate administration, ICP dropped to 20 mmHg. Thiopental was administered for two days and then rapidly tapered because of severe urosepsis. Six months after discharge from the intensive care unit the patient returned to near-normal life, her only complaint being short-term amnesia.

Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) was administered to 10 patients with autoimmune-related ILD: 4 with SSc, 3 with rheumatoid arthritis, 2 with polymyositis, and 1 with systemic lupus erythematosus and Sjögren syndrome. Five patients received remote CYC infusion. Ten patients had improvement in alveolitis, symptoms (cough, dyspnea, and chest discomfort), perceived quality of life and activity levels. Four of 5 patients discontinued oxygen. Two of 8 repeat high-resolution computed tomography improved, 6 stabilized, none worsened. Pulmonary function testing in 1 of 9 patients showed worsening, 3 with improvement and 5 stabilized. Serial echocardiograms revealed no new pulmonary arterial hypertension and no worsening of preexisting pulmonary arterial hypertension. Very importantly, averaged prednisone dose decreased from 58 to 1.4 mg without worsening.

Men with progressive mCRPC after docetaxel and abiraterone and/or enzalutamide were randomly assigned at a two-to-one ratio to cabozantinib 60 mg once per day or prednisone 5 mg twice per day. The primary end point was overall survival (OS). Bone scan response (BSR) at week 12 as assessed by independent review committee was the secondary end point; radiographic progression-free survival (rPFS) and effects on circulating tumor cells (CTCs), bone biomarkers, serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA), and symptomatic skeletal events (SSEs) were exploratory assessments.

Racial differences among kidney transplant recipients may impact the total daily tacrolimus dose required to achieve therapeutic tacrolimus concentrations. Previous studies suggest that African Americans require higher doses to achieve similar therapeutic drug concentrations compared with Caucasians. Data were collected on a total of 147 de novo kidney transplant recipients. Tacrolimus total daily dose (TDD) requirements (mg/kg/d) and tacrolimus concentrations were retrospectively reviewed at discharge and at days 30, 60, and 90 after transplant. TDD requirements in African-American and Caucasian patients were 0.14 mg/kg/d and 0.11 mg/kg/d, respectively (p = 0.005), at day 30. TDD requirements at day of hospital discharge and days 60 and 90 following transplant were significantly higher in African-American patients vs. Caucasian patients, with similar tacrolimus concentrations at all time points. This study suggests that when compared to Caucasians, African Americans require significantly higher TDD of tacrolimus to achieve similar tacrolimus concentrations. These findings provide transplant clinicians with a sense of certainty to more rapidly titrate daily tacrolimus doses in African-American patients to achieve therapeutic concentrations.
Treatment with vincristine, adriamycin, and dexamethasone chemotherapy was effective for the refractory pleural effusion in systemic immunoglobulin light chain amyloidosis without cardiac decompensation and appears to be associated with improvement in our patient's prognosis.

Treatment-related mortality (21.7 vs. 5.0%, P = 0.002) and early discontinuation of treatment (32.6 vs. 14.9%, P = 0.008) were more common in the sarcopenic group than in the non-sarcopenic group. The 5 year progression-free survival (PFS) rates were 35.3% in the sarcopenic group and 65.8% in the non-sarcopenic group (P < 0.001). The 5 year OS rates were 37.3% in the sarcopenic group and 68.1% in the non-sarcopenic group (P < 0.001). Sarcopenia and the five variables of the International Prognostic Index (IPI) were independent prognostic factors in a multivariate analysis for PFS and OS and were used to construct the nomogram. The calibration plot showed good agreement between the nomogram predictions and actual observations. The c index of the nomogram (0.80) was higher than those of other prognostic indices (IPI, 0.77, P = 0.009; revised-IPI, 0.74, P < 0.001; National Comprehensive Cancer Network-IPI, 0.77, P = 0.062).
Patients were randomized to receive 25 mg weekly oral methotrexate or 1 g twice daily oral mycophenolate mofetil and were monitored monthly for 6 months. Oral prednisone and topical corticosteroids were tapered.

Primary myelofibrosis (PMF) is a chronic myeloproliferative disorder in human bone marrow. Over 50% of patients with myelofibrosis have mutations in JAK2, MPL, or CALR. However, these mutations are rarely detected in children, suggesting a difference in the pathogenesis of childhood PMF. In this study, we investigated the response to drug treatment of a monozygotic twin pair with typical childhood PMF. The twin exhibited different clinical outcomes despite following the same treatment regimen. The transcriptomic profiles of patient samples after drug treatment (E2 and Y2) were significantly different between the twin pair, which is consistent with the observation that the drug treatment was effective only in the younger brother, despite the twin being genetically identical. Bioinformatics analysis of the drug-responsive genes showed that the JAK-STAT pathway was activated in the cured younger brother, which is opposite to the pathway inhibition observed in adult PMF cases following treatment. Moreover, apoptosis and cell cycle processes were both significantly influenced by drug treatment in the sample of younger brother (Y2), implying their potential association with the pathogenesis of childhood PMF. Gene mutations in JAK2, MPL, or CALR were not observed; however, mutations in genes including SRSF2 and SF3B1 occurred in this twin pair with childhood PMF. Gene fusion events were extensively screened in the twin pair samples and the occurrence of IGLV2-14-IGLL5 gene fusion was confirmed. The current study reported at transcriptomic level the different responses of monozygotic twin brothers with childhood PMF to the same androgen/prednisone treatment regimen providing new insights into the potential pathogenesis of childhood PMF for further research and clinical applications.

Erdheim-Chester disease (ECD) is a non-Langerhans' cells histiocytosis of unknown etiology, which generally presents with long bones involvement, even if extraskeletal lesions may be frequently recognized. As a consequence of its rarity, there is no consensus concerning the best standard of care for affected patients. We present the case of a 53-year-old woman with bilateral orbital histologically documented ECD, presenting with an important thickening and swelling of the periorbital tissue and massive involvement of lateral rectal muscles, as documented by magnetic resonance. The patient was successfully addressed to 12 cycles of a weekly lymphoma-designed chemotherapy regimen, including etoposide, mitoxantrone, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, bleomycin, and prednisone (VNCOP-B regimen). Periorbital lesions reduced during the courses of chemotherapy, along with a regression to normal appearance of the extrinsic ocular musculature. This appears as an effective and well-tolerated first-line treatment option for ECD patients, due to the possibility of maintaining an adequate dose intensity, with also a concomitant continuous steroid administration.

High Skp2 or low p27 expression correlated significantly with poor overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (P < 0.001) in both treatment groups. The prognostic value of Skp2 or p27 expression was independent of the parameters included in the International Prognostic Index by multivariate analysis. Patients with high Skp2 expression in combination with low p27 expression showed the worst survival.

A total of 33 women (37 pregnancies) with alloimmune thrombocytopenia and ICH in a previous child were stratified according to the timing of the previous child's ICH: extremely high risk (HR) (n = 8) had ICH <28 weeks, very HR (n = 17) between 28-36 weeks, and HR (n = 12) in the perinatal period. Treatment was initiated at 12 weeks with intravenous immunoglobulin 1 or 2 g/kg/wk, and if the fetal platelet count by cordocentesis was <30,000/mL despite treatment, prednisone and/or more intravenous immunoglobulin were added.

Adalimumab, a humanized monoclonal antibody targeted against TNF-α, has proved to be successful in the treatment of uveitis. Another anti-TNF-α agent, i.e., infliximab, has been reported of benefit in the treatment of refractory sarcoidosis. The aim of this prospective case series was to evaluate the effect of adalimumab on intraocular inflammatory signs and other relevant clinical manifestations (lung function, serological inflammatory parameters, and fatigue) of sarcoidosis.
