Characterization of a Type 2 diabetes-associated islet-specific enhancer cluster in STARD10 by genome editing of EndoC-βH1 cells

Poster

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified more than 100 genetic loci associated with type 2 diabetes. The majority of these are located in the intergenic or intragenic regions suggesting that the implicated variants may alter chromatin conformation. This, in turn, is likely to influence the expression of nearby or more remotely located genes to alter beta cell function. At present, however, detailed molecular and functional analyses are still lacking for most of these variants. We recently analysed one of these loci and mapped five causal variants in an islet-specific enhancer cluster within the STARD10 gene locus. Here, we aimed to understand how these causal variants influence b-cell function by alteration of the chromatin structure of enhancer cluster

Treatment Options for Chronic Parvovirus Viremia in Pediatric Heart Transplant Patients in a Tertiary Care Center

Poster

This abstract discusses three cases of pediatric heart transplant patients who suffered from parvovirus (B19) infection. Of these patients, two ( B & C) responded well to standard intravenous Ig therapy. Patient A however, did not respond to standard treatment and was begun on subcutaneous Ig, which effectively diminished his viral load. Thus, subcutaneous Ig infusions might serve as a second line treatment for transplant patients with parvovirus who do not respond well to the standard approach.

T-helper cell phenotype expression in cutaneous lesions of angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma

Poster

Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) is a common type of peripheral T-cell lymphoma. AITL can be missed until lymphadenopathy develops in patients initially presenting with skin lesions, as skin biopsy may lack conclusive findings. Our case highlights the extranodal presentation of AITL with cutaneous lesions displaying the TFH phenotype.
