Laboratory Tests in Diagnosis of Mastocytosis: Literature Review and Case Report

and determining aggressive course of the disease ( 32 , 37 ). In fact, several other somatic mutations in TET2, SRSF2, ASXL1, CBL, RUNX1 and RAS in patients with SM-AHN, ASM, MCL were detected ( 5 , 24 ). Non-KIT mutations in SM-AHN are found not only in MCs, but also in other myeloid cells, CD34-progenitor cells and sometimes in monocytes and B-lymphocytes ( 1 , 38 , 39 ). However, KIT mutations are found in other neoplasms, including gastrointestinal stromal tumors, acute myeloblastosis, lymphomas and seminomas ( 1 , 2 , 20 ). In addition to the

Wall vacuum-assisted closure technique for a complex enteroatmospheric fistula: report of a case

-assisted closure (VAC) have been proposed; however, there is no single universal technique that can be applied to every EAF because each fistula is different [ 3 ]. Hence, the wound care of EAF should be individualized for each patient. We report a novel VAC technique used to contain the fistula effluent and protect skin in a patient with a complex EAF. Case report A 53-year-old male patient presented with abdominal pain and mass. A diagnosis of a malignant gastrointestinal stromal tumor of the stomach with peritoneal seeding was made, and the patient underwent exploratory

Reinstating endogenous antitumor immunity: The concept of therapeutic management of cancer

, such as gastrointestinal stromal tumours, promising results have been observed when the TKI imatinib is combined with CTLA-4 blockade in mouse models [ 80 ]. In this case, the mechanisms underlying the synergistic effects of the combination not only included a possible vaccine effect after imatinib treatment, but also the activation of cytotoxic T cells and depletion of Tregs within the tumour. The VEGF has been recognised as a critical mediator of immune suppression, suggesting that VEGF blockade, which has proven effective for the treatment of several cancers
