The two key challenges to address are to extract the MCA as a frozen solid from the polarizer, while preserving its hyperpolarization, and to prolong the 13C HP signal lifetime as much as possible under-sample transport conditions. Three different concepts have been published for producing long-lasting HP samples for storage and transportation25,26,27. The critical point in these concepts is the absence or drastic reduction of paramagnetic relaxation during extraction from the polarizer of the solid-state sample.

In this work, we exploit UV-induced radicals to generate highly polarized 13C-MCAs in the liquid state with no need for dDNP polarizer on site. We demonstrate transportation at cryogenic temperature of such samples. We establish a robust protocol for sample loading, polarization, thermalization, extraction, transport, and dissolution away from the production site of the HP 13C-MCA solid sample. We tested our method on a single sample preparation involving deuterated trimethylpyruvic acid (d9-TriPA) as UV-radical precursor and [U-13C, d7]-D-glucose as substrate29, the latter being a molecule showing increasing interest in the hyperpolarization community thanks to the rich metabolic pathways it can give access to33,34,35,36. Moreover, the shorter liquid state T1 of glucose compared to pyruvic acid after dissolution, would greatly benefit from quicker handling time prior to injection in vivo, by reducing as much as possible the distance between the scanner and the dissolution device. This can be far from trivial when dissolving the sample directly from the dDNP polarizer.
Background: The selective TRK inhibitor larotrectinib was approved for paediatric and adult patients with advanced TRK fusion-positive solid tumours based on a primary analysis set of 55 patients. The aim of our analysis was to explore the efficacy and long-term safety of larotrectinib in a larger population of patients with TRK fusion-positive solid tumours.
Methods: Patients were enrolled and treated in a phase 1 adult, a phase 1/2 paediatric, or a phase 2 adolescent and adult trial. Some eligibility criteria differed between these studies. For this pooled analysis, eligible patients were aged 1 month or older, with a locally advanced or metastatic non-CNS primary, TRK fusion-positive solid tumour, who had received standard therapy previously if available. This analysis set includes the 55 patients on which approval of larotrectinib was based. Larotrectinib was administered orally (capsule or liquid formulation), on a continuous 28-day schedule, to adults mostly at a dose of 100 mg twice daily, and to paediatric patients mostly at a dose of 100 mg/m2 (maximum of 100 mg) twice daily. The primary endpoint was objective response as assessed by local investigators in an intention-to-treat analysis. Contributing trials are registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT02122913 (active not recruiting), NCT02637687 (recruiting), and NCT02576431 (recruiting).
Interpretation: These data confirm that TRK fusions define a unique molecular subgroup of advanced solid tumours for which larotrectinib is highly active. Safety data indicate that long-term administration of larotrectinib is feasible.
Most of iris tumors in children are cystic, but iris solid neoformations represent a real challenge for the ophthalmologist especially in younger patients. Obtaining reliable images can be challenging, the number of cases is small even in tertiary centers and the presentation is polymorphous and variable. Furthermore even benign melanocytic lesions tend to have a higher rate of growth into melanoma, especially if they involve the inferior quadrants .
Photographic and UBM documentation of the clinical features can be of great help in diagnosis and follow up of solid iris tumors. It is extremely important to have high quality images in order to document the surface characteristics of the tumor. Serial photographs can also be important to document presence of hyphema, significant vascularization or changes in the pigmentation of the lesion. Tumor size, boundaries, thickness and changes in the internal structure can be followed up by UBM. We did not document the lesion with OCT because at the time of diagnosis, the child was too young to reliably undergo the examination. We recently acquired AS-OCT images because we believe that this less invasive technique can help to further follow the patient, although for anterior segment tumors, UBM offers better visualization of the posterior margin and provides overall better images for entire tumor configuration [14, 15].
One Phase 2 study has been analyzed for how ESR1-MUT affects AI combined with PI3Ki (alpelisib) . Patients with MBC regardless of prior treatment received AI plus alpelisib, and solid tissue biopsies were analyzed retrospectively for baseline mutations. The patients had received a median of two lines of prior ET and two lines of prior chemotherapy in the metastatic setting; 88% had PIK3CA mutations and 20% had ESR1 mutations in the solid tissue biopsies. Although sample sizes were small, the results were striking: the four-month clinical benefit for ESR1-MUT (6 patients) was 0%, compared to 62% for ESR1-WT (32 patients). Follow-up xenograft studies of genetically modified breast cancer cells recapitulated these results, showing that Y537S blunts the effect of alpelisib plus estrogen deprivation. Helpful additional analyses would include those using cfDNA samples (not just solid tissue biopsy) in this trial and analyses of trials using fulvestrant plus PI3Ki, such as SOLAR-1, BYLieve, and SANDPIPER.
Design, Setting, and Participants OnCovid is a European registry that collects data on consecutive patients with solid or hematologic cancer and COVID-19. This multicenter case series study included real-world data from 35 institutions across 6 countries (UK, Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, and Germany). This update included patients diagnosed between February 27, 2020, and February, 14, 2021. Inclusion criteria were confirmed diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection and a history of solid or hematologic cancer.
This study was aimed to formulate and evaluate solid dispersion containing ivermectin to improve solubility. Ivermectin is BCS (Biopharmaceutical classification system) class-II drug, which has high permeability and low water solubility (0.005mg/ml) which is responsible for its poor dissolution rate and ultimately leads to variable absorption. Solid dispersion with Gelucire (44/14) has the ability to improve dissolution of poor water soluble drugs. So, solid dispersion ivermectin with Gelucire 44/14 was prepared to enhance the solubility and was further evaluated for different parameters such as assay, wettability, DSC, FT-IR, dissolution study.

The lowest density foam was tested using a different machine, with a lower capacity load cell, because of its greater compliance and lower strength. All tests were video-recorded using a video camera (Sony Handycam DCR-DVD404E, Sony Corporation, Japan). No preload or preconditioning was applied to the specimens, which were compressed between two acetal plates (thickness 15 mm). For the 3.9 mm and 7.7 mm cylinder lengths, tests were performed under displacement control at a rate of 0.013 mm.s-1 and 0.026 mm.s-1 respectively, both of which are equivalent to a strain rate of 0.0033 s-1 . Inspection of video recordings showed a repetitive cycle of trabeculae fracture and consolidation (particularly for the 0.09 g.cm-3 PU foam). All test cylinders experienced loads less than the critical load required for Euler buckling and no such buckling was observed in the video images. For each compression test, the engineering stress was calculated by dividing the load recorded at each data point by the original cross-sectional area of the PU foam cylinder, whilst the engineering strain was calculated by dividing the displacement of the machine actuator head (at each data point) by the original height of the PU foam cylinder . A fifth-order polynomial was fitted to the stress-strain curves. The material properties determined were the Young's modulus, the yield strength, and the energy absorbed up to the yield point. A general expression for Young's modulus was found by differentiating the polynomial equation of the engineering stress-strain curve with respect to strain. This expression for Young's modulus was then plotted against strain and the Young's modulus was determined as the maximum value on the curve. It was necessary to determine the Young's modulus in this way because the stress-strain curves were non-linear. The yield strength was determined by the method described by Li and Aspden ; i.e. it was determined as the stress at which the Young's modulus had reduced by 3% from its maximum value. The energy absorbed to yield was calculated by integrating the polynomial equation of the engineering stress-strain curve between the limits of zero and the strain point at which the yield strength was determined.
Two different PU cylinder lengths were chosen to determine whether specimen dimensions would affect the results. Significant differences were found in the Young's modulus and energy absorbed to yield (except for the 0.09 g.cm-3 PU foam) between the two PU foam cylinder lengths. This result is consistent with the findings of Keaveny et al.  who found a weak dependence between Young's modulus and specimen aspect ratio for cylindrical specimens of cancellous bone. The response of a cellular solid to compression is not simple. Video recordings showed that deformation of the open-cell foams involved bending and buckling of the PU "struts"; failure involved fracture and consolidation. A similar structural response to compression has been observed in the trabeculae of cancellous bone . This complicated response may be implicated in the dependence of the results on specimen geometry. However, the most important conclusion is that any comparison of results from PU foam and bone should be for results obtained from specimens with comparable dimensions.
