Another mechanism leading to the reduction of Foxp3 expression during inflammation is mediated by the Deleted in breast cancer (DBC)1 factor, also known as p30 DBC or cell cycle and apoptosis regulator (CCAR)2 (202). Gao and co-workers recently reported that DBC1 is a Foxp3-interacting partner whose depletion in Treg cells results in the reduction of Foxp3 degradation and improvement of suppressive function in response to pro-inflammatory stimuli, such as IL-6 and TNF-α. The molecular mechanism underlying Foxp3 degradation during inflammation involves the activation of the caspase 8 degradation pathways in response to TNF-α stimulation. Indeed, treatment of cells with caspase 8 inhibitor during TNF-α treatment prevents Foxp3 degradation, thus suggesting a key role for caspase 8 in DBC1-mediated Foxp3 degradation [Figure 3; (202)].

Purpose: We present 12-month followup results of functional evaluation and safety assessment of a modification of hemorrhoidal artery ligation (DGHAL) called Recto-Anal-Repair (RAR) in treatment of advanced hemorrhoidal disease (HD). Methods: Patients with grade III and IV HD underwent the RAR procedure (DGHAL combined with restoration of prolapsed hemorrhoids to their anatomical position with longitudinal sutures). Each patient had rectal examination, anorectal manometry, and QoL questionnaire performed before 3 months, and 12 months after RAR procedure. Results: 20 patients completed 12-month followup. There were no major complications. 3 months after RAR, 5 cases of residual mucosal prolapse were detected (25%), while only 3 patients (15%) reported persistence of symptoms. 12 months after RAR, another 3 HD recurrences were detected, to a total of 8 patients (40%) with HD recurrence. Anal pressures after RAR were significantly lower than before (?
In 1995, Morinaga et al. described a new method of treatment of hemorrhoidal disease, based on hemorrhoidal artery ligation, guided by a Doppler flowmeter. The aim of the new approach was to preserve hemorrhoidal plexuses and overlaying mucosa . It is now a very popular method of treatment of grade II and III hemorrhoidal disease in some countries (Austria, Italy), recommended by some colorectal societies as an optimal method of treatment of these stages of HD, for its simplicity and low risk of complications . The recurrence rate for grade IV hemorrhoidal disease is significantly higher in patients treated with DGHAL than with hemorrhodectomy , also standard DGHAL does not address the issue of prolapsed mucosa. First of mentioned problems rarely becomes an issue because of very low risk of the procedure, ability to re-apply the same method in case of lower effectiveness and a very good tolerance of this method by patients. This is why modification of DGHAL addressing the issue of mucosal prolaps is a very attractive option. This could lead to more wide use of Doppler-guided ligation also for higher grade heamorrhoids .
The aim of this paper is to present this new technique and preliminary results of functional evaluation and safety assessment of RAR procedure in the treatment of IIIrd and IVth grade HD, conducted at the 3rd Department of Genetral Surgery, Jagiellonian University.
Rectoanal repair seems to be a safe method of treatment of IIIrd and IVth grade hemorrhoidal disease with no major complications and a high rate of good short-term results. The procedure has a significant influence on resting and squeeze anal pressure, with no evidence of risk of fecal incontinence after the operation. It remains to be answered if that is a result of return to normal anal tone or should be considered as an adverse effect. However, this is a preliminary study with small series of patients and short followup time, so it is difficult to assess long-term efficacy, recurrence rates, and long-term influence on anorectal function, which still need to be assessed in larger studies with longer followup period and bigger groups of patients.

All-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) plus anthracycline chemotherapy is the reference treatment of newly diagnosed acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), whereas the role of cytosine arabinoside (AraC) remains disputed. We performed a joint analysis of patients younger than 65 years included in Programa para el Estudio de la Terapéutica en Hemopatía Maligna (PETHEMA) LPA 99 trial, where patients received no AraC in addition to ATRA, high cumulative dose idarubicin, and mitoxantrone, and APL 2000 trial, where patients received AraC in addition to ATRA and lower cumulative dose daunorubicin. In patients with white blood cell (WBC) count less than 10 109/L, complete remission (CR) rates were similar, but 3-year cumulative incidence of relapse (CIR) was significantly lower in LPA 99 trial: 4.2% versus 14.3% (P = .03), although 3-year survival was similar in both trials. This suggested that AraC is not required in APL with WBC count less than 10 109/L, at least in trials with high-dose anthracycline and maintenance treatment. In patients with WBC of 10 109/L or more, however, the CR rate (95.1% vs 83.6% P = .018) and 3-year survival (91.5% vs 80.8%, P = .026) were significantly higher in APL 2000 trial, and there was a trend for lower 3-year CIR (9.9% vs 18.5%, P = .12), suggesting a beneficial role for AraC in those patients.
Another sizable subset of patients die in CR from complications of consolidation treatment, mainly from infection due to chemotherapy-induced myelosuppression.7,11-13 To decrease mortality in CR, the Programa para el Estudio de la Terapéutica en Hemopatía Maligna (PETHEMA) group reduced the intensity of consolidation chemotherapy by avoiding cytosine arabinoside (AraC) in the chemotherapy regimen.8,9 They observed CR rates comparable with regimens using a combination of AraC with anthracycline, a lower rate of death in CR (2%) and a low cumulative incidence of relapse (10%). On the other hand, the French-Belgian-Swiss APL group, in a randomized trial in patients with WBC count less than 10 109/L that tested the role of AraC in addition to ATRA and anthracyclines, found a significantly higher cumulative incidence of relapse and lower survival in patients treated without AraC.14
To assess those discrepancies between PETHEMA and French-Belgian-Swiss results, particularly regarding the role of AraC, we performed a joint analysis of results of LPA 99 (PETHEMA group) and APL 2000 (French-Belgian-Swiss APL group) studies. We restricted, in APL 2000 trial, the joint analysis to patients who received AraC, excluding low-risk patients who were randomized to receive induction treatment without AraC.
Patients 60 years or younger with WBC count less than 10 109/L were randomized to receive the reference ATRA plus CT treatment of the previous APL 93 trial (ie, ATRA 45 mg/m2 per day until hematologic CR and chemotherapy with daunorubicin (DNR) 60 mg/m2 per day during 3 days and AraC 200 mg/m2 per day during 7 days) or the same treatment but without AraC (AraC-negative group). After CR achievement, consolidation treatment consisted of 2 intensive chemotherapy courses with DNR 60 mg/m2 per day for days 1 to 3 and AraC 200 mg/m2 per day for days 1 to 7 and daunorubicin 45 mg/m2 per day for days 1 to 3 and AraC 1 g/m2 per 12 hours for days 1 to 4 in the AraC-positive arm, which were similar but without AraC in the AraC-negative arm.14
Patients 60 years or younger with a WBC count of 10 109/L or more received the same treatment as those 60 years or younger with WBC count less than 10 109/L included in AraC-positive group, but with increased dose of AraC (2 g/m2 per 12 hours during 5 days in patients younger than 50 years, and 1.5 g/m2 per 12 hours during 5 days in patients aged 50 to 60 years) with central nervous system (CNS) prophylaxis (consisting of 5 intrathecal injections of MTX 15 mg, AraC 50 mg, and depomedrol).
Patients older than 60 years with WBC count less than 10 109/L received the same treatment as patients 60 years or younger with WBC count less than 10 109/L included in the AraC-negative group (ie, ATRA 45 mg/m2 per day until hematologic CR and chemotherapy with daunorubicin 60 mg/m2 per day during 3 days) followed by consolidation treatment consisting of 2 intensive chemotherapy courses with DNR 60 mg/m2 per day for days 1 to 3 and daunorubicin 45 mg/m2 per day for days 1 to 3. Patients older than 60 years with initial WBC count of 10 109/L or more received the same treatment as patients 60 years or younger with WBC count less than 10 109/L included in the AraC-positive group (ie, ATRA 45 mg/m2 per day until hematologic CR and chemotherapy with daunorubicin 60 mg/m2 per day during 3 days and AraC 200 mg/m2 per day during 7 days) followed by consolidation treatment with 2 intensive chemotherapy courses with DNR 60 mg/m2 per day for days 1 to 3 and AraC 200 mg/m2 per day for days 1 to 7 and daunorubicin 45 mg/m2 per day for days 1 to 3 and AraC 1 g/m2 per 12 hours for days 1 to 4.14
A joint analysis of the 2 studies was made. It included all patients from LPA 99 younger than 65 years, and patients from APL 2000 trial younger than 65 years who were randomized or assigned to treatment arms with AraC. 041b061a72
