Immunohistochemical Analysis of Cyclooxygenase-2 in Non-Melanocytic Skin Cancer: Correlation With Morphological Subtype and Histologic Grade
Basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) are known as non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSCs), and they account for approximately 90% of all skin cancers. Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) is expressed in NMSC and in premalignant cutaneous lesions (actinic keratosis). Immunohistochemistry was performed with COX-2 antibodies in skin biopsies (paraffin tissue archival blocks) from 28 cases with SCC and 33 cases with BCC. COX-2 was immunostained in a total of 61 cases. There was no staining or weakly positive staining in 73.8% of the cases (45 cases), and there was moderate or strong positive staining in 26.3% of the cases (16 cases).

Review of Cisplatin and Oxaliplatin in Current Immunogenic and Monoclonal Antibodies Perspective
Platinum-based chemotherapy made a paradigm shift in the treatment of different cancers initially; however, the success of these agents may have reached the peak as researchers have tried different combination regimes in different trials without having major differences in the end results. New frontiers of research were opened up firstly with this discovery that conventional chemo-radiation therapy can induce immunological cell death by recruiting high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) protein which triggers the T cell immunity and secondly monoclonal antibodies agents which were regrettably not effective as “monotherapy”; however, the combination with conventional chemotherapy had demonstrated good results.

Spontaneous Hepatic Rupture Associated With Epstein-Barr Virus Negative Aggressive Natural Killer Cell Leukemia
Aggressive natural killer cell leukemia (ANKL) is a rare subtype of large granular lymphocyte (LGL) leukemia, which typically presents in young adults of Asian descent. It is an aggressive disease, characterized initially by fever, pancytopenia and hepatosplenomegaly, which rapidly progresses to organ failure and death over the course of months. Spontaneous hemorrhagic complications have been reported to occur in ANKL in a handful of case reports, including lethal intestinal and cerebral hemorrhage as well as splenic rupture. Full Text
